The GeForce RTX 30 series is already super fast. The higher-end cards in that family chew up and spit out games at high resolutions the way cards from five years ago were just starting to master 1080p. It gets a little bit silly at times when we're benchmarking these graphics cards because it is sometimes difficult to... Read more...
Gamers in need of a GPU upgrade face an interesting quandary—buy a graphics card now, with prices having finally started to approach MSRP levels, or wait for next-generation models, including NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 40 series based on Ada Lovelace. Those who decide to go the latter route may have to wait a little bit... Read more...
Have you heard the rumors about how hot and power-thirsty next-generation GPUs are going to be? Of course you have, because we've been covering all of those rumors and leaks for months. This story isn't about that. Instead, we're going to talk about the latest rumor, which claims that the reference design for NVIDIA's... Read more...
It's not really news to tell you that the next generation of graphics cards is going to be power-hungry. Truth be told, we don't have any official information on that point whatsoever, neither from AMD nor NVIDIA. The writing is on the wall, though; besides the constant leaks implying that the next GPU releases from... Read more...
Awhile back, around the release of the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti, Mr. Wallossek over at Igor's Lab stated that he expected the boards for the RTX 3090 Ti to be re-used for the next-generation GeForce RTX 4090. Other folks said that was not the case, but we didn't have any confirmation on the matter until now. The new... Read more...
Summer is nearly upon us and as the dog days of the hotter months of year begin to dwindle, NVIDIA is expected to heat things back up with a new round of graphics cards based on its next-generation Ada Lovelace graphics architecture. The question is, should you buy a card now as prices trend back towards MSRP levels... Read more...
Every so option, a leak or rumor pops up claiming NVIDIA's next flagship graphics is going to be an absolute beast. Given what we know about the current generation flagships, the GeForce RTX 3090 and GeForce RTX 3090 Ti, that's like saying water is wet and fire is hot. It's the more specific claims that can be...

This is a story we've all heard several times by now: next-generation GPUs are going to be even bigger, hotter, and more power-thirsty than the beastly boards of today. It seems like that may be true of some more than others, though. We heard back in the middle of March that NVIDIA could be preparing a top-end Ada... Read more...
NVIDIA has shown it has no intention of relinquishing the GPU performance crown, and we need only look at the recent addition of the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti to be reminded of this (although there could be an ulterior motive there). We'll see how things shake out when NVIDIA and AMD get around to launching their next-gen... Read more...
The GPU nightmare might not be over just yet, but every month we get a little bit closer to waking up to a stabilized market. Whether we get all the way there before AMD and NVIDIA begin shipping out next-gen graphics cards remains to be seen, and that presents gamers with any interesting quandary—does it make sens to...

First, a bit of context. It has been rumored for some time that NVIDIA's next-generation graphics cards for gamers after Ampere, known as Ada Lovelace, will be ludicrously power-hungry—to the tune of some 600 Watts. As an aside, AMD's RDNA 3-based Navi 30-series GPUs are expected to be quite thirsty as well. These... Read more...
Let's start this story with a bit of context for people who may not have been following along. NVIDIA's extant GeForce RTX 30 series cards currently top out at the RTX 3090, which can draw up to 431 W in our testing. At this year's CES back in January, Team Green announced the RTX 3090 Ti, based on the same Ampere... Read more...
When it comes to graphics card leaks and rumors, there are a number of fairly-reliable sources. Two of the most prolific producers of recent rumors have been Twitter users @kopite7kimi and @Greymon55. Regular HotHardware readers are sure to be familiar with these names; we've reported on their rumors many... Read more...
Let's go over the NVIDIA vs. Lapsus saga: On February 25th, The Telegraph reported that an insider had informed them of a cyber-attack on NVIDIA. The next day, Lapsus (frequently stylized as LAPSUS$) took responsibility for the hack, and claimed that NVIDIA had hacked them back with a ransomware attack, although... Read more...
If you've been trying to get a GeForce RTX 3000-series graphics card, been unsuccessful, and decided at this point to just wait for next-generation, well—you probably better have a real beefy power supply. We've reported on similar rumors before, but this one is even more concerning. Simply put, oft-seen Twitter... Read more...
If there is one thing the past year has taught us in terms of supply and unprecedented demand, it's that semiconductor manufacturing capacity is painfully limited. It is paramount, then, that fabless firms spend big to secure their piece of the silicon pie in anticipation of upcoming product launches. As it applies to... Read more...
There is little to no chance that NVIDIA will unveil its next-generation Ada Lovelace GPU at the Consumer Electronics Show this week, but if past leaks and rumors are accurate, it will arrive later this year. It's also anticipated to bring with it a massive performance uplift. How massive? We won't know until Ada... Read more...
One thing we've learned over the past year is to never take anything for granted. So yes, while it is generally assumed NVIDIA will release its next-gen GeForce RTX 4000 series in 2022, we wouldn't exactly be shocked if those plans changed. It doesn't look like they will, though—rumor has it factories have already... Read more...
Forget for a moment that graphics cards are scarcer than unobtanium. We all know the situation by now, and it's still going to be a bit before things change. That said, new products will continue to manifest. For NVIDIA, that means an eventual GeForce RTX 40 series (if sticking with the the present naming convention)... Read more...
Technology marches to the beat of its own drum and is typically unfazed by whatever events might be going on at the time. Like a silicon shortage and street prices for GPUs continuing to rise. So it should come as no surprise that leaks and rumors pointing to NVIDIA's next-generation Ada Lovelace GPUs have permeated... Read more...
It may seem hard to fathom, but it has already been over a year since NVIDIA began shipping its GeForce RTX 30 series graphics cards based on Ampere. Supply shortages have dampened things a bit, but even so, technology marches on. And to that end, there is talk of NVIDIA refreshing its GeForce RTX series with Super... Read more...
It has been a painful year for gamers in need of a GPU upgrade, because graphics cards have been especially hard to find (unless you're willing to pay grossly inflated prices from scalpers). There is some potentially good news, however. We could have access to next-generation graphics cards by the time the market... Read more...
