NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti: June 2020, or earlier?!

By: Anthony Garreffa | Video Cards | Posted: 23 hours, 41 mins ago

The hype train for NVIDIA's next-gen Ampere GPU is really starting to gain traction, with new rumors fueling the release window of Ampere in 2020.

We heard about the purported GeForce RTX 3000 series cards not too long ago now, with NVIDIA reportedly preparing the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti, GeForce RTX 3080, and GeForce RTX 3070 graphics cards for 2020. But the big question is when exactly, in 2020?

Raymond James analyst Chris Caso has said that NVIDIA reportedly pushed Ampere back by a few months, with Team Green aiming for a GTC 2020 reveal and Computex 2020 release. Caso adds that Ampere will be introduced at GTC 2020 in a big way as an AI/datacenter/HPC product, and then an Ampere-based GeForce RTX 3000 series family of cards will launch in the months after.

  • NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 - 12GB
  • NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti - 16GB

The official marketing material for AMD's upcoming Radeon RX 5500 series has surfaced, showing that the company has labeled it as a "Performance" card. AMD's new Radeon RX 5500 competes directly and easily beats NVIDIA's mid-range GeForce GTX 1650 graphics card.

Navi 14 will offer up 22 RDNA compute units for a total of 1408 stream processors, 4GB/8GB of GDDR6 memory on a 128-bit memory bus which will provide 224GB/sec memory bandwidth. AMD will clock the Navi 14 GPU at 1670MHz game clock, and up to 1845MHz boost clock.

GIGABYTE to launch its AORUS Radeon RX 5700 XT soon

By: Anthony Garreffa | Video Cards | Posted: 1 day, 22 hours ago

GIGABYTE hasn't had an AORUS-branded Radeon since the Radeon RX 580 (they skipped the RX 590) so it is high time that we get a custom AORUS-branded Radeon.

The latest in AORUS' custom line up appears to be a custom Radeon RX 5700 XT in a huge triple-fan, triple-slot beast. We are expecting AORUS to release the custom Radeon RX 5700 XT sometime in the next month or so, perfect for the holidays and the latest games out like Red Dead Redemption 2.

In a statement from 'GBT-Brian' who is a GIGABYTE Community Manager, he explained: "You guys asked for it and we are delivering! Going into mass production next week and should be available 2-3 weeks after. I'll post more pics as soon as the product hits our warehouse".

Both the NVIDIA Control Panel and GeForce Experience have some new features and tools to make great use of.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080/3080 Ti: more VRAM, way faster and CHEAPER?!

By: Anthony Garreffa | Video Cards | Posted: Oct 29, 2019 @ 19:29 CDT

NVIDIA launched its new GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER graphics card in the first few hours of October 29, and as I awake the first thing I see is a juicy new rumor post about NVIDIA's next-gen Ampere GPU architecture (something I revealed back in April 2018) and details on the purported GeForce RTX 3000 series graphics cards.

nvidia-geforce-rtx-3080-ti-more-vram-much-faster-cheaper_01

The news is coming from the purported fact that NVIDIA has been discussing Ampere and the next-gen GeForce RTX 3000 series cards with AIB partners, and Wccftech has posted up these rumors. We don't know any concrete details on the Ampere GPU itself, which is something NVIDIA will deep dive into once it's announced -- but there are a few very juicy tidbits here that if true, would be great to see.

First off, NVIDIA's new Ampere-based cards should arrive to consumers in the GeForce RTX 3070, GeForce RTX 3080, and GeForce RTX 3080 Ti if NVIDIA follow the same release plans as the GeForce RTX 2070, RTX 2080, and RTX 2080 Ti launch. These cards are going to be faster, offer more VRAM, and hell they're even reportedly going to be cheaper.

The new Ampere-based GeForce RTX 3000 series cards will reportedly offer more VRAM on all cards, so we could see:

  • NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 - 12GB
  • NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 - 12GB
  • NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti - 16GB

Intel Xe graphics card is ALIVE! First cards are now being tested

By: Anthony Garreffa | Video Cards | Posted: Oct 26, 2019 @ 0:59 CDT

Intel's new Xe discrete graphics card is ALIVE, screamed out onto Twitter like Frankenstein -- in news that should surprise people. Intel has tested its first Xe GPU in DG1, something Chris Hook, Intel Sr. Director, Discrete Graphics and Visual Technologies Marketing Chief tweeted:

Better yet, Intel CEO Bob Swan himself told investors on an analyst call that Chipzilla had turned on the first Intel Xe DG1 graphics card in their labs. We are still expecting an unveiling at what should be around Computex 2019 next year, with a launch in the months after.

Intel has also said that they are "on-track" for a 7nm GPU in 2021, which is just 14 months away if you can believe it. I'm hoping we might see some leaks from the Intel Xe DG1 developer kits that are going out right now, but they would be so early that we shouldn't be expecting anything but testing and analysis of what the first discrete GPU in decades from Intel.

Tech whistleblower: YouTubers paid by NVIDIA for product placement

By: Anthony Garreffa | Video Cards | Posted: Oct 25, 2019 @ 0:26 CDT

TechPowerUp caused quite the stir in the last few hours, with the site reporting from a Reddit "whistleblower" that posted about NVIDIA marketing having control over YouTubers. It ended, as you'd expect... disastrously.

tech-whistleblower-youtubers-paid-nvidia-product-placement_08

First up, check out this full text of the post that TPU reported on... but then the site used an image from Steven "Tech Jesus" Burke from Gamers Nexus. This image was quickly removed once the drama began. There was absolutely no need to use his image, at all, and so Burke rightfully so -- blasted TPU on Twitter in an exchange you can read here:

The whistleblower said that he/she is scared NVIDIA will "punish" them if they talked about this under their YouTube channel. This means that whoever the anonymous "whistleblower" is, it's a YouTuber who "makes video reviews on computer hardware". From the outset, the post notes that they are "pretty big" but "not LTT big, but still pretty big" and that they work with all of the major hardware companies.

NVIDIA's new EGX supercomputer: 1.6TB/sec data collection

By: Anthony Garreffa | Video Cards | Posted: Oct 21, 2019 @ 23:13 CDT

NVIDIA has just unveiled its new EGX Edge Supercomputing Platform during MWC 2019 in LA today, announcing that its new platform has been adopted by industry giants in Samsung, Walmart, and BMW just to name a few.

nvidias-new-egx-supercomputer-1-6tb-sec-per-second-data-collection_07

Walmart is using NVIDIA's new EGX technology in its retail lab in Levittown, NY in order to improve its in-store shopping experience, with the ability to tell staff to go and get shopping charts, or to restock shelves. It can even alert staff during busy periods to open up additional checkouts, or stock shelves when stock runs low all of the sudden.

In this example, NVIDIA was able to boast: "Walmart is able to compute in real-time more than 1.6 terabytes of data generated each second".

NVIDIA is about to unleash its GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER with various leaks and teases along the way from different brands, with MSI the latest in its custom GTX 1660 SUPER graphics cards being leaked.

msis-new-geforce-gtx-1660-super-gaming-ventus-xs-spotted_02

The first of which we have is the higher-end GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER GAMING X which will roll out with MSI's iconic TWIN FROZR 7 cooler, while the cheaper option will be offered in the GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER VENTUS XS OC. Both of these cards feature back plates and dual-fan coolers.

Starting with MSI's higher-end GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER GAMING X we have the TWIN FROZR 7 cooler, RGB lighting, and I'm sure it'll have its Turing GPU clocked higher than the cheaper VENTUS XS OC option.
