NVIDIA has had some major shifts with DLSS over the last few days, with Deep Learning Super Sampling technology now supported in DOOM Eternal with new GeForce Game Ready 471.11 WHQL drivers.
The upgraded DLSS 2.2 was recently deployed in Rainbow Six Siege, and will soon be introduced into Red Dead Redemption 2 as well.
NVIDIA works with the biggest game developers in the world, and has been working closely with Epic Games on their next-gen Unreal Engine 5 technology. Unreal Engine 5 developers can now download the NVIDIA DLSS plugin, which will let them tweak DLSS for their games in-development and have huge performance increases thanks to DLSS.
AMD has released their new Radeon Adrenalin 21.6.1 driver, which adds support for their DLSS competitor in FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR) and the first mobile RDNA 2 GPU.
The new Radeon Adrenalin 21.6.1 driver adds support for FSR in certain games, including Godfall (with ray tracing support), Terminator Resistance, The Riftbreaker, Evil Genius 2, Anno 1800, 22 Racing Series, and KingShunt.
There are many more FSR games coming in the future, including Far Cry 6 and Resident Evil Village -- as well as support for the Radeon RX 6800M. There are some issues fixed with the new drivers, where Radeon FreeSync would lock on the desktop when switching tasks between extended and primary displays.
The continued Bizarro world of GPU prices continues, with graphics cards on both sides -- NVIDIA's new GeForce RTX 30 seires and AMD's new Radeon RX 6000 series costing double the listed MSRP price, worldwide pretty much.
Hell, even previous-gen and second-hand GPU prices are insane.
But according to a new report from 3DCenter, GPU prices and availability are beginning to improve. The site tweeted out that NVIDIA GPU availability has increased "greatly" while "prices go down" from over 133% the MSRP, to now only 91% over MSRP... but as they said, and I want to emphasize: there's still a long way to go.
NVIDIA GeForce GPUs are selling in higher quantities than AMD Radeon GPUs but, for some reason everyone continues to report that they're sold out purely because crypto miners are buying them -- and that recent changes in Bitcoin and Ethereum prices are deterring people from buying said NVIDIA GeForce GPUs and availability is improving.
AMD launched its new Radeon RX 6900 XT LC a few days ago, and was exclusive to system builders -- but that didn't last long at all and now the card is popping up in India for $3000+ without needing to purchase an entire PC.
AMD was very clear on its Radeon RX 6900 XT liquid cooled reference design graphics card, saying that it would be making a "limited number" of the new flagship RNDA 2 card and would be available to "select system integrators".
HardwareLuxx heard from AMD directly as well, with the company explaining: "This AMD-designed liquid cooled Radeon RX 6900 XT graphics card is a limited-edition product exclusively for select system integrators".
COLORFUL has just unveiled its super-elite flagship iGame RTX 3090 KUDAN graphics card, which costs an insane $4999 and only 1000 units will be made.
The company has outfitted the beautiful new iGame RTX 3090 KUDAN graphics card with its most advanced features, with fantastic hybrid cooling that blends the worlds of air cooling and water cooling -- allowing for some excellent overclocking on the iGame RTX 3090 KUDAN graphics card. Better yet, it has a physical One-Key OC button for extremely easy overclocking.
COLORFUL has outfitted its iGame RTX 3090 KUDAN graphics card with Golden Gears and gold accents, with a huge LCD display and of course RGB lighting that tips the card over the edge in terms of its "OMG" factor.
AMD has unleashed its ultra-performance Radeon RX 6900 XT Liquid Cooled graphics card, cooled with a large AIO cooler.
The new Radeon RX 6900 XT Liquid Cooled graphics card has AMD overclocking the TBP to 330W, and the 16GB of GDDR6 memory to 18Gbps. These two tweaks provide enough performance that AMD says the new Radeon RX 6900 XT Liquid Cooled can better battle NVIDIA's flagship GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and GeForce RTX 3090 graphics cards.
The GPU itself has a game clock of up to 2250MHz, boost clock of 2435MHz -- 235MHz and 185MHz overclocked over the air-cooled version of the Radeon RX 6900 XT, respectively.
COLORFUL's new custom iGame GeForce RTX 3090 KUDAN graphics card is in the oven, and nearly ready to be taken out and the very tiny amount of them that are made will be sold.
The new COLORFUL iGame GeForce RTX 3090 KUDAN looks like an utter beast, but we know nothing about it outside of this single picture. QuazarZone forum members discovered the card, and that's the only reason it's even on any of our radars.
The picture was black, but once adjusted (adjusted picture above, the original image below) we can see a gigantic GeForce RTX 3090 graphics card. It is definitely a triple-slot card, but it could be even thicker and could be a 3.5- or even 4-slot GPU.
GDDR memory prices are about to get more expensive, with TrendForce expecting an 8-13% increase in GDDR memory prices later this year -- which will hurt GPU and console prices even more.
Graphics DRAM (GDDR) prices increasing will hurt GDDR6 and GDDR6X-based products, with GDDR6 inside of all of AMD's new RDNA 2-based products: the Radeon RX 6000 series (Radeon RX 6700 through to the Radeon RX 6900 XT all use GDDR6 memory) as well as the next-gen consoles in Microsoft's Xbox Series X/S and Sony PlayStation 5 consoles.
On the PC side of things, NVIDIA uses the ultra-fast GDDR6X memory in half of its new Ampere-based GeForce RTX 30 series GPUs: the newly-released GeForce RTX 3070 Ti and GeForce RTX 3080 Ti graphics cards both use GDDR6X memory -- so too do the GeForce RTX 3080 and GeForce RTX 3090 graphics cards.
COLORFUL has teamed with NVIDIA on the first GPU History Museum, which houses graphics cards from the early 1980s through to today.
The new GPU History Museum is now open in China, and will showcase the very start of VGA cards (Video Graphics Array) through to the first GPU (the NVIDIA GeForce 256) and into the world of the GPUs of today. It all started in the early 1980s but things really went to the next level when 3Dfx (back when the 'D' was capitalized before it changed to 3dfx) came onto the scene in the mid-1990s.
NVIDIA came onto the scene with its NV1 graphics chip in 1995, and then delivered the world's first GPU -- the GeForce 256. It dropped with so much impact that I changed my gamer handle to 'anthony256' which you can find me on Twitter, or any game -- but there are some real gems in the GPU History Museum.
GAINWARD has just revealed some new custom GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and GeForce RTX 3070 Ti graphics cards, with a new pink-themed card.
The new GAINWARD GeForce RTX 3070 Ti Pink Star graphics card is exactly what you think it is: a new custom RTX 3070 Ti with a pink/gold theme that you can see in the pics above, and many more below. There's no OC branding here, with the GPU clocked at 1800MHz GPU boost, with the TDP boosting up from 290W to 310W on the GAINWARD RTX 3070 Ti Star series cards.
Like every other GeForce RTX 3070 Ti graphics card, GAINWARD's new GeForce RTX 3070 Ti Pink Star graphics cards have 6144 CUDA cores and 8GB of GDDR6X memory. The pink theme looks great, and I'm sure it'll have its fans -- the pink and gold theme will have a place somewhere in some girl-gamer PC.
