You might not be able to buy a GeForce RTX 30 series graphics card anywhere on the planet right now, but that's not stopping AIB partners from releasing new models.
GALAX has just unveiled its new GeForce RTX 30 series Work the Frames (or WTF) which doesn't have any NVLink or power connectors in its simplified form, unveiled during a virtual expo. The new GALAX GeForce RTX 30 WTF series features a black shroud, with translucent fans -- it definitely looks great from the pics.
You can see there's a lot of RGB lighting going on here, with a triple-fan cooler and 2.2-slot design with RGB lightning not just on the front of the card -- but also around on the back, too.
AMD is about to launch its new RDNA 2 architecture that powers the Radeon RX 6800 XT and Radeon RX 6800 graphics cards, with soemthing NVIDIA doesn't have: Smart Access Memory.
AMD's new Smart Access Memory (SAM) requires a new RDNA 2-based Radeon RX 6000 series graphics card, mixed with the Zen 3-based Ryzen 5000 series processors and X570 motherboard. You can read all about AMD Smart Access Memory right here.
But now NVIDIA is chiming in with some news, with GamersNexus tweeting that NVIDIA said regarding SAM: "The capability for resizable BAR is part of the PCI Express spec. NVIDIA hardware supports this functionality and will enable it on Ampere GPUs through future software updates. We have it working internally and are seeing similar performance results".
EVGA has just unveiled its new GeForce RTX 3090 and RTX 3080 Hydro Copper graphics cards, with the GeForce RTX 3090 FTW3 Ultra Hydro Copper being the flagship model in the new series.
EVGA uses its Hydro Copper full-cover VGA waterblock on the new cards, built for the demands of "high-end gaming, rendering, Folding, Crunching, Benchmarking, or whatever tasks your system is built to perform". The new cards rock solid copper and nickel plating, keeping the card cool enough for silent gaming as there are no fans.
You will of course need a custom watercooled PC with all of the components ready to go, with EVGA providing its new GeForce RTX 3090 and RTX 3080 Hydro Copper series graphics cards prepared to slot in, plug into your existing system, and then rock and roll.
ASRock is preparing its custom Radeon RX 6800 XT graphics card should should be the new Radeon RX 6800 XT Taichi, which will succeed the ASRock Radeon RX 5700 XT Taichi OC+ that I reviewed last year.
It looks like ASRock has made some nice design tweaks to the purported Radeon RX 6800 XT Taichi graphics card, which would feature a dual-BIOS switch with P and Q settings (which should be performance and quiet profiles for the card).
There's also another switch that lets you totally disable the RGB lighting, which is a nice touch if you don't want the RGB lighting glowing up your case. It rocks a hefty 3 x 8-pin PCIe power connector setup, which is a considerable jump on the dual 8-pin PCIe power connectors of AMD's own reference Radeon RX 6800 XT graphics card.
It's not only Cinebench R23 that was released today, but the V-Ray 5 CPU and GPU benchmark suite was released by Chaos Group, too. It's free to download -- which you can download right here.
The new V-Ray 5 GPU benchmark has support for RTX technology, so if you have a GeForce RTX 20 or GeForce RTX 30 series graphics card then you can stress test your machine with a new GPU benchmark. There's also a super-intensive CPU benchmark included, too.
XFX has just teased its new Big Navi-based graphics cards in a big way, with a video teaser posted on Twitter showing them crashing into the Earth in what seems like an ELE, check it out:
But instead of seeing the Radeon RX 6800 XT or Radeon RX 6800 graphics cards from XFX, I can't not see that XFX has branded the card "Radeon RX 6800 XL". It oculd be a mistake, but I don't see how the marketing peeps at XFX could not see this and pump the video out -- the one and only about custom Big Navi cards from XFX.
We do have a triple-fan cooler, a smaller PCB (interesting) and should have it released in the coming weeks. I hope to have my hands-on samples as soon as humanly possible.
MSI just let us know that it plans to #ChangeTheGame on November 20. MSI says to mark our calendars for the new MSI Game Changer in a little over eight days and five hours from now.
In the teaser image supplied to us by MSI, it's impossible to make out exactly what will be released. But we can obviously see that we are dealing with a graphics card - specifically a graphics card with what is likely going to include three 80mm cooling fans. Beyond that, we can't figure out much else.
We will likely be dealing with a high-end graphics card, but which one? Could it be the GeForce RTX 3090 Lightning or RTX 3080 Lightning? Or could it be something completely new and different? Maybe an entirely new line with mega insane overclocks out of the box? We really don't know. We're just going to have to wait and see what MSI has cooked up for us gamers.
SAPPHIRE has just teased its next-gen Radeon RX 6800 series graphics cards, with 5 new cards on the way -- the RX 6800 XT NITRO+ SE, RX 6800 XT NITRO+ (non-SE), RX 6800 XT PULSE as well as non-XT versions of the same cards.
The cards all use a large triple-fan cooler and 2.7-slot design, with dual 8-pin PCIe power connectors across the board. The flagship SAPPHIRE Radeon RX 6800 XT NITRO+ "Special Edition" has RGB lighting through the fans, with a USB Type-C connector like the reference Radeon RX 6000 series cards.
The other card is the Radeon RX 6800 XT NITRO+ which drops the RGB lighting from the front fans and has it around the back only -- and it also drops its USB Type-C connector.
AMD is about to unleash its RDNA 2-based Radeon RX 6000 series graphics cards, with the Radeon RX 6800 XT and Radeon RX 6800 graphics cards launching on November 18.
The company already teased back just a couple of weeks ago that its RDNA 3 teams were "in execution" and getting things done. But now during an interview between AMD's Executive Vice President, Rick Bergman, and The Street, has some big bombs dropping about the next-next-gen RDNA 3 architecture.
Bergman said: "Let's step back and talk about the benefits of both. So why did we target, pretty aggressively, performance per watt [improvements for] our RDNA 2 [GPUs]. And then yes, we have the same commitment on RDNA 3".
We continue to hear more and more about the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti graphics card, where according to the latest rumors it'll be dropped in January 2021.
But now we're hearing some specs on the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti, where it will reportedly be powered by the GA102-250-KD-A1 GPU and pack 10496 CUDA cores. This CUDA core count on the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti would give it the same CUDA core count as the GeForce RTX 3090, and way more than the RTX 3080 which packs just 8704 CUDA cores in comparison.
The new GeForce RTX 3080 Ti would be released with 20GB of GDDR6X memory, on a 320-bit memory bus while it will reportedly have a TGP of 320W. This new RTX 3080 Ti would battle AMD's upcoming Radeon RX 6900 XT and Radeon RX 6800 XT graphics cards.
