Ultrabook laptops are typically not the best performers when it comes to anything outside of casual browsing or light workloads. They may have a decent CPU, but the GPU almost always lacks for people who want to game or do some heavy work, such as editing. Therefore, GPU enclosures are incredibly handy, as you can just plug them into a laptop and have the full power of a GPU at your disposal when needed. Gigabyte has now kicked things up a notch with the AORUS RTX 3090/3080 GAMING BOX, the “world’s 1st water-cooled external graphics” enclosure. The AORUS Gaming Box is equipped with either a liquid-cooled NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 or GeForce RTX 3080 that connects to your laptop... Read more...
It looks as though relief for enthusiasts isn't coming anytime soon if you want one of NVIDIA's highly rated GeForce RTX 30 Series graphics cards. NVIDIA has cited overwhelming demand as it struggles to not only deliver its own Founders Edition cards to customers, but also GPUs that find their way into custom boards from its various board partners. NVIDA CEO Jensen Huang previous stated that he expected supply issues to last through at least the end of 2020. However, on this week's earnings call, NVIDIA CFO Colette Kress explained that eager customers will be waiting into 2021 for relief. "While we had anticipated strong demand, it exceeded even our bullish expectation," said... Read more...
AMD's Ryzen 5000 family of processors and NVIDIA's new GeForce RTX 30 Series of graphics cards are among the hottest PC hardware products on the market today -- well, that it is if you can actually get your hands on them, which is a near-impossible at the moment. However, you can get both if you step into Corsair's new Vengeance a7200 Series Gaming PC. Corsair is allowing you to configure the Vengeance a7200 with up to a 12-core/24-thread Ryzen 9 5900X processor along with up to a GeForce RTX 3080 graphics cards. Both are incredibly potent pieces of hardware that will fuel your 4K gaming needs with ease at maximum detail settings. Given that this is Corsair we're talking... Read more...
When it comes to PC graphics cards, NVIDIA has long held the performance advantage despite continued pressure from AMD. NVIDIA ramped up the pressure over the summer with the launch of the GeForce RTX 3080 and RTX 3090, and today we gave you our review of the GeForce RTX 3070. Hot on the heels of new information regarding an alleged GeForce RTX 3070 Ti, we’re learning that NVIDIA is looking to further expand its GPU stack with a GeForce RTX 3080 Ti. As you might have already surmised, this card would fill in a very deep hole in NVIDIA’s lineup between the $699 GeForce RTX 3080 and the $1,499 GeForce RTX 3090. According to reliable hardware leaker kopite7kimi, the GPU... Read more...
NVIDIA already came out and launched its GeForce RTX 30 series, consisting initially of the GeForce RTX 3090, GeForce RTX 3080, and GeForce RTX 3070, two of which we have already ran through the benchmark ringer, with superb performance. The ball is now in AMD's court to respond. That response will come in the form of Big Navi, and some supposedly early benchmarks look promising, at least in rasterized graphics. AMD will officially step into the next-gen GPU ring with its Radeon RX 6000 series, launching next week. Ahead of the launch, AMD teased the performance of its Big Navi offering when announcing its Zen 3 CPUs, showing off a bit of Borderlands 3 gameplay running at a 4K resolution, along... Read more...
NVIDIA would likely be the first to admit that its GeForce RTX 3080 and GeForce RTX 3090 launches were problem prone. With the former, there were glitches and an overabundance of bots snatching up stock which left many enthusiasts without cards in hand. With the GeForce RTX 3090 launch, additional precautions were taken, but stock was still depleted within mere minutes. It's become clear that NVIDIA's online web store simply isn't equipped to handle the immense demand when it comes to its own Founder Edition cards, so the company is looking for some outside help. As a result, NVIDIA announced in a forum post that Best Buy will become its exclusive retail partner in the United States... Read more...
The scarcity of NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 and RTX 3080 series cards has been a source of consternation for gaming enthusiasts and financial temptation for unscrupulous resellers. And it turns out that at least one of NVIDIA's board partners is up to no good as well. It was recently found that a subsidiary of MSI has been reselling NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 Series cards at huge markups through online storefronts, including eBay. Overnight, a reddit user brought to light the practices of Starlit Partner. On eBay, Startlit Partner had listed an MSI GeForce RTX 3080 GAMING X TRIO GPU for $600 over MSRP at $1,359. Looking through its feedback, the store is rife with additional sales which indicate... Read more...
You would have better luck trying to acquire a bucket of plutonium than getting your hands on a GeForce RTX 3080 or GeForce RTX 3090 graphics card right now, and it would probably be cheaper (compared to what scalpers are asking for these cards). But unless you have a flux capacitor, what are you going to do with plutonium? Get arrested, that's what. Fortunately, EVGA has come to the rescue with a way to reserve a GeForce RTX 30 series graphics card that is both fair and, to quote the old Guinness commercials, brilliant! It is a queue-based notification system, whereby you select an out-of-stock card you want, and as more inventory comes in, EVGA will notify users in the order they requested... Read more...
We've got some not-so-good news for you, if you've been hoping to [easily] get your hands on a new GeForce RTX 3080 or GeForce RTX 3090 this holiday season. During a Q&A with the tech press, following the company's onslaught of GTC 2020 announcements, NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang noted, relating to Ampere gaming GPUs, that "demand will outstrip all of our supply through the year." "The demand issue is that it is much greater than we expected - and we expected really a lot." That's a serious bummer considering that the initial supply of GeForce RTX 3080 cards was depleted within a few minutes when it launched on September 17th. Even after NVIDIA and its partners implemented some failsafe... Read more...
For some early adopters of the exceptionally popular GeForce RTX 3080 graphics card, there has been trouble in paradise. Among those who were able to get their hands on the elusive Ampere part, reports surfaced of instability issues, with some of the cards crashing at overclocked speeds that were set at the factory. Following an investigation into the matter, EVGA has traced the issue to the use of cheaper capacitors. As you can imagine, this has to be extra frustrating for affected users. The GeForce RTX 3080 was on store shelves for all of two second at launch before it sold out completely, the result of frenzied demand by gamers, an influx of bots attempting to secure as much inventory as...

Ever since NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang first revealed the GeForce RTX 30 Series earlier this month, excitement around the Ampere-based graphics cards has been incredibly high. So, it should come as no surprise that the launch of both the GeForce RTX 3080 and GeForce RTX 3090 were met with immediate sellouts, much to the chagrin of gamers eager to get their hands on the most powerful 4K (and 8K) capable GPUs. Most simply assumed that NVIDIA was playing fast and loose with inventory when it comes to the GeForce RTX 3080 and the GeForce RTX 3090. There have been wild rumors that NVIDIA was purposefully limiting the number of cards available at launch to manage its margins, or to... Read more...
When NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang announced the GeForce RTX 3080, he billed it at the company's new gaming flagship. Priced at $699, the GeForce RTX 3080 is twice as fast as the GeForce RTX 2080 and is a 4K gaming champion. But the true flagship of the Ampere family is actually the GeForce RTX 3090, which can drive certain games at 60fps at a stunning 8K resolution. We already knew that the GeForce RTX 3090 would be arriving tomorrow, September 24th, but NVIDIA is further driving that point home with a new blog post. If you thought that it was nearly impossible to get a GeForce RTX 3080 last week when it launched, your fortunes will likely be much worse if you're attempting to purchase... Read more...
Late last week, Gigabyte accidentally leaked information for unreleased GeForce RTX 30 Series graphics cards via a portal on its website to claim a free copy of Watch Dogs Legion. Now it appears that Galax is joining in with further confirmation of upcoming GeForce RTX 30 graphics cards on the way from NVIDIA. An internal presentation from Galax was leaked to Baidu, and it shows a roadmap for NVIDIA’s Ampere graphics cards. On the roadmap, we see the previously discussed GeForce RTX 3060, which would take up the position as the entry-level SKU for the GeForce RTX 30 Series.  Previous rumors have pointed to a GeForce RTX 3060 Ti with 4,864 CUDA cores (compared to 5,888...

Last Thursday, NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 3080 Ampere graphics card launched to much fanfare, just a day after the NDA lifted on reviews of the Founders Edition. However, that launch was marred by the fact that NVIDIA's retail partners were quickly overrun with orders, with many people seeing "out of stock" messageswithin a minute or two of the 9am EST launch. Things weren't much better at NVIDIA's own online store. Not long after all of the GeForce RTX 3080 drama went down, NVIDIA posted a brief statement apologizing for the traffic issues via its online store, and promised that it is "shipping more RTX 3080 cards every day to retailers." Today, however, NVIDIA is expanding upon... Read more...
It seems everyone and their uncle was on the hunt for a GeForce RTX 3080 graphics card when it launched to retail last week, and unfortunately, there was just not enough supply to go around. Scalpers looking to make a quick buck made sure of that. Making matters worse, at least one of NVIDIA's add-in board (AIB) partners accepted way more orders than it has inventory to fulfill, and may have to cancel some of them. That board partner is Zotac, which explained in a now-deleted Twitter post (according to Videocardz) that some unknown error resulted in it accepting close to 20,000 pre-orders for its GeForce RTX 3080 Trinity model. "Almost 20,000 pre-orders have been received and, with the best of... Read more...
On this episode of HotHardware's Two And A Half Geeks podcast, we'll be taking a look at the MONSTER performance of NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 3080, in addition to chatting about our review of a custom RTX 3080 from Palit.

Yesterday, we brought you news that a 20GB version of the GeForce RTX 3080 is likely on the way, doubling the amount of onboard GDDR6X that is in currently-shipping cards. The news came straight from the horse's mouth, NVIDIA, via an Ampere GA102 GPU architecture whitepaper. Now we're getting further confirmation via one of NVIDIA's trusted OEM partners: Gigabyte. The company is currently running a promotion, which was first spotted by Videocardz, where those that purchase a GeForce RTX 3080 card can get a free copy of Watch Dogs Legion by entering in their purchase details and device serial number on its website. This is pretty standard fare for graphics card manufacturers, but... Read more...
It's been a big week for NVIDIA; the first reviews for the GeForce RTX 3080 Founders Edition went out yesterday, confirming that Ampere is a magnificent beast that eats through 4K games with reckless abandon. Today, reviews for third-party GeForce RTX 3080 cards started making the rounds here, and most importantly, the cards were made available for the public to purchase... but not so fast. As we reported earlier this morning, inventory at popular online retailers like Best Buy and Newegg was depleted almost instantly. Customers that were able to quickly get GeForce RTX 3080 cards in their shopping carts were then disappointed to find that the item was... Read more...
NVIDIA hit it out of the ballpark with its GeForce RTX 3080, a $699 graphics card that beats the previous generation offerings to a pulp, including the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti that launched at $999. Sounds great, right? The only problem is trying to actually get your hands on one. Predictably, the GeForce RTX 3080 pretty much sold out right away, leading to inflated prices at places like eBay. Sales of the card went live this morning at 9:00 am ET. And by 9:01 am ET, they were gone...everywhere. Demand for the card was so high some retailers buckled under the pressure of immense traffic, including Newegg, which was down for a bit (it's back online, but none of the GeForce RTX 3080 models on its site...

The GeForce RTX 3080 has launched to retail (good luck getting one at MSRP, though), and is an absolute gaming monster—the fastest graphics card we have ever tested, in fact. Next week will see the release of the GeForce RTX 3090, followed by the GeForce RTX 3070 in October. Good stuff, but what else looms? Perhaps a version of the GeForce RTX 3080 with twice as much memory. Before we get to that, let's quickly recap the specifications. The GeForce RTX 3080 is built around NVIDIA's latest generation Ampere GPU, which itself is manufactured on Samsung's 8-nanometer (8N) node. It features 8,704 CUDA cores, 68 second-generation RT cores, and 10GB of GDDR6X memory at 19Gbps on a 320-bit bus,... Read more...
The Ampere-based NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 review embargo lifted yesterday and immediately got hardcore gamers and GPU enthusiasts buzzing. Cards may not be in the hands of consumers just yet, but witnessing the power and performance of the GeForce RTX 3080 alongside NVIDIA’s and AMD’s now previous-gen flagships, it is plain to see that Ampere is giant leap forward. The $699 NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 skunked even the ultra-high-end Titan RTX and it blew past the similarly-priced GeForce RTX 2080 Super. What about AMD you ask? Well, for all intents and purposes, the GeForce RTX 3080 was more than twice as fast as AMD’s current flagship Radeon RX 5700 XT in GPU bound situations, essentially... Read more...
In case you missed it, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 is the hottest thing to hit the PC graphics scene since... well, the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti roughly two years ago. We tested NVIDIA's new mainstream gaming flagship yesterday and came away impressed by the sheer power of the Ampere GPU architecture, which doubles the performance of AMD's flagship Radeon RX 5700 XT and far outpaces the outgoing GeForce RTX 2080 Ti. The only thing left for gamers to do at this point is to actually purchase the GeForce RTX 3080, and luckily, cards from NVIDIA and from its OEM partners go on sale a little over an hour from now at 9am EST. NVIDIA has set the price of the GeForce RTX 3080 at $699,... Read more...
