Something obvious to anyone that’s done any shopping for graphics cards recently is that NVIDIA’s add-in board partners have gone all-in on Pascal. Virtually all of NVIDIA’s tier 1 partners have dozens of Pascal-based products in their line-up, from ultra-powerful, triple-slot, overclocked GeForce GTX 1080s to half-height, low-power GTX 1050s. Tucked away neatly in the middle, however, is a graphics card with enough muscle to power a mainstream gaming system, but in a form factor that’s small and power-friendly enough for a compact mini-ITX build – this is the EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 Gaming.If you look at is specs, EVGA's GeForce GTX 1060 Gaming seems very similar to a standard GeForce GTX 1060....

Is your PC in need of a good refresh for improved gaming performance? If so, and you happen to live in Latin America, NVIDIA has a kit for you. It's called the "PC Gaming Revival Kit", and it includes not only the company's mid-range GeForce GTX 1060, but other important pieces of gear as well. As we discovered at its launch, the GTX 1060 is a great graphics card at its given price point. It allows respectable gaming performance at 1440p, and excellent performance at 1080p. Plus, most models on the market can be overclocked quite heavily, so that free performance boost is only a couple of clicks away. Also included in the package is Corsair's Force LE 240GB SSD and CX450M power supply. Both components... Read more...
Rumor surrounding AMD's next high-end GPU, tentatively called the Radeon RX 490, have been floating around for a while. Admittedly, it's been extremely difficult to get a real gauge on what to expect. Some say that the RX 490 won't even match NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1070, but now, we have a benchmark that shows us that it might be just as fast as the GTX 1080. Stardock's Ashes of the Singularity became a de facto benchmark out-of-the-gate due to its use of DirectX 12, and not to mention its built-in benchmark. At the start of the month, a user named Ceaj uploaded a rather peculiar result, featuring a GPU ID'd 687F:C1. AotS can ID released graphics cards, so the fact that this comes up without a...

NVIDIA has been pushing its GeForce Experience application hard over the past couple of months, and for good reason. The software's name is apt -- it improves the GeForce gaming experience, which for some users could mean having the best in-game detail settings automatically determined, while for others, it could mean having a solid game-recorder tool at-the-ready, any time it is needed. NVIDIA recently piled on yet another perk to GFE -- free games. Right now, the company is giving away copies of Gears of War 4 to some gamers who simply use GeForce Experience 3.0, and are logged into the app. You can sign up for an NVIDIA account to do this, or simply use your Google or Facebook account....

Earlier this week, we informed you about rumblings that NVIDIA was rumored to be readying the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, a follow-on high end GPU targeted at bringing Titan X class performance to gamers and enthusiasts at a price point somewhere between the Titan X and the potent GeForce GTX 1080. Though rumored for a CES 2017 unveil, we're also now learning more specifics and possibly even a confirmation of the 1080 Ti's actual existence. Initially spotted on a shipping manifest by Videocardz, details in the shipment of a computer graphics card, targeting a destination Indian port via Bangalore Air, point to the NVIDIA nomenclature of PG611 for the GPU -- which designates NVIDIA's GP102 -- aka the...

Although rumors had been circulating for a while, NVIDIA went ahead and made the GeForce GTX 1050 and GeForce GTX 1050 Ti official last week with an announcement featuring a number of details about the cards. In the announcement, NVIDIA covered some of the speeds and feeds, revealed a number of partner board designs, and revealed expected pricing. Performance, however, was not discussed. Today we’re able to tell all, with a trio of GeForce GTX 1050 and GTX 1050 Ti cards from MSI and EVGA. We’ve got two cards from MSI – in both plain vanilla and Ti flavors – along with an EVGA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti SuperClocked Edition. Before we dive in, here are the GPUs’ reference specifications, as outlined... Read more...
It has been widely expected for the past two months that NVIDIA would be releasing a new lower-end graphics card based on its Pascal architecture, and after a few leaks and a lot of rumors, the company finally coughed up the confirmation last week. This release will be a bit of a one-two punch for NVIDIA, as it'll be tackling AMD's Radeon RX 460 and 470 series head-on with its GeForce GTX 1050 Ti, and it also fills an even lower tier with its GTX 1050. The GTX 1050 Ti should prove to be a great 1080p gaming card, with some potential for 1440p gaming in certain titles (most likely MOBA-esque). With its 4GB framebuffer, the 1050 Ti shouldn't have a bottleneck at this target resolution, but the... Read more...
Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1050 Ti The moment has finally arrived. After nearly two months of speculation, NVIDIA has finally pulled the wraps off its new entry-level GeForce GTX 1050 and GTX 1050 Ti graphics cards. NVIDIA is confident that these budget cards won't drain your wallet and will allow you to enjoy your favorite games at 1080p/60fps. Although NVIDIA isn’t ready to divulge all of the specifications for the new cards just yet, it did let us know that both GP107 GPUs feature a 135mm2 die size, 3.3 billion transistors and a 128-bit memory interface. The GTX 1050, as we’ve previously reported, comes with 640 CUDA cores and 2GB of 7Gbps GDDR5 memory. The GTX 1050 Ti ups CUDA cores to 768 and... Read more...
Sometimes, it's best to accept the fact that you can't do everything yourself, and where microprocessors are concerned, that can be critical. Sometimes there's just no sense in reinventing the wheel. However, Samsung has been driving to build in-house graphics IP for its Exynos mobile chipsets for quite some time. According to new rumors, though, the Korean company has put that idea on hold, and is instead considering licensing GPU IP from other major players like AMD and / or NVIDIA. According to industry sources at SamMobile, Samsung is in talks with both AMD and NVIDIA to license their respective technologies, although it's unclear at this point if deals... Read more...
NVIDIA hit a lot of high notes with the Pascal-based GeForce GTX 1080. When the Founder’s Edition launched earlier this summer, it received accolades for its excellent performance, power efficiency, and host of new features. If you’d like a refresher on what’s new in NVIDIA’s Pascal architecture and see what makes the GeForce GTX 1080 Founder’s Edition tick, we’d strongly suggest checking our launch coverage. We’ve got the full scoop laid out for you there.As HOT as the GeForce GTX 1080 Founder’s Edition is, we were eager to see what NVIDIA’s board partners would do with the GTX 1080. The GP104 GPU that is the foundation of the GTX 1080 isn’t particularly power hungry, it doesn’t generate a ton... Read more...
In the gaming industry, it's not uncommon to hear about cases where one developer clips code from another. We've even seen it happen on Steam's Greenlight service, where some smaller developers churn out a quick game and "borrow" assets from other established games. It's not often though that we hear about this kind of thing involving a major OEM, like NVIDIA, for instance. Alongside the launch of its first Pascal-based GPUs, NVIDIA released an advanced screen-capture tool called Ansel. With it, players can effectively pause a supported game, and then manipulate the view in free-cam mode. From there, they can capture the scene in one large static image or a 360° version. More artistic users can... Read more...
One thing is for sure: if you're in the market for a new gaming notebook - especially one featuring NVIDIA's brand-new GeForce cards - you're not going to suffer from a lack of choice. We've written about a handful of different vendor notebooks so far, and not to be forgotten, Acer has finally tossed its hat into the ring. Acer hasn't produced brand-new models to support NVIDIA's latest GPUs, but instead updated its popular Predator 15 and Predator 17 notebooks. However, there is something a bit odd: Acer hasn't yet said exactly which GPUs will be featured in these models. That said, the outgoing models supported the 970M and 980M - the top-tier options of their generation - so we'd imagine that... Read more...
Today is a massive day for gaming notebooks thanks to the launch of NVIDIA's latest mobile-bound GeForce graphics cards. As covered in our launch article, these GPUs don't feature the "M" that we've seen in years' past - these are full-blown desktop chips. That means one thing: they're powerful. Seriously powerful. As expected with any new GPU launch, a slew of vendors have today announced their latest wares, and that includes EVGA. The company announced its SC17 17-inch notebook back at CES, but at the time it shipped with the 900-series GeForce chips. Now, it's been upgraded to support the GTX 1070. Perhaps we'll see a GTX 1080 model down-the-road, but given the amount of performance the 1070... Read more...
NVIDIA's new Pascal GPU architecture has been taking the PC graphics market by storm since its introduction in early May. The leading-edge semiconductor powerhouse, in addition to lighting up pixels, has been burning up its balance sheets as well, with strong sales of GeForce, Quadro and Tesla product lines driving record revenues and a brisk uptick in the company stock price. For NVIDIA's core gamer customer base, the GeForce GTX 1080 and 1070 kicked-off the Pascal party, followed by the introduction of the more mid-range GeForce GTX 1060, and then finally the monstrous NVIDIA Titan X. With the exception of the entry-level graphics segment (a slot in the product stack the company has yet to... Read more...
A couple of weeks back, just in time to rain on AMD’s Radeon RX 480 parade, NVIDIA revealed a few details about the GeForce GTX 1060. We didn’t have actual performance numbers to share, but NVIDIA revealed GTX 1060 Founder’s Edition’s pricing, core count, clocks, memory configuration, TDP, and physical characteristics. They also claimed the card would offer performance in the same class as the GeForce GTX 980. Considering the fact that the GP106 GPU at the heart of the GeForce GTX 1060 has roughly half of the resources of NVIDIA’s current flagship GeForce GTX 1080, and NVIDIA put the 1080 up against a pair of GTX 980s in SLI at its launch event, claiming the GTX 1060 would perform on par with...

We reported over the weekend that a few different vendors have been teasing their upcoming GeForce GTX 1060 models, which for an unreleased card is quite interesting, but it has helped increase the momentum of NVIDIA's hype train. Now, ZOTAC has decided to get in on the action by announcing its own models that are going to cater to those with SFF builds: two ITX versions of the GeForce GTX 1060. Unfortunately, ZOTAC hasn't been able to actually show us what its ITX models look like yet, but an example of what the company's GeForce GTX 960 ITX edition looked like last generation can be seen below. ZOTAC is going to offer two different SKUs for its ITX GTX 1060s, which include the Mini and AMP... Read more...
NVIDIA’s has yet to make an official announcement, however this past weekend Swedish gaming notebook manufacturer IVY listed their new notebooks as powered by NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1080M. The key feature of the GeForce GTX 1080M is the 8GB of video memory which spells higher resolution textures and screens. While the mobile GeForce GTX 1080M is undeniably slower than the desktop version, it looks like it will be giving the desktop GTX 980’s a run for their money. The GeForce GTX 980 featured 2048 CUDA cores, a base clock of 1126 MHz, a boost clock of 1216 MHz, and a total memory bandwidth of 224 GB/s. It retails anywhere from $500 to $700 USD. The mobile GeFore GTX 1080M boasts 2048 CUDA... Read more...
Building your own computer can be an extremely satisfying experience, but that doesn't mean that anyone has to shrug off potential improvements that would make that experience even smoother, right? Have you ever wanted to, for example, make the motherboard and graphics card into a single unit? If you didn't, the folks at Colorful did, and the result is one of the least colorful motherboards out there, the B150-GP104: To accommodate such a powerful graphics card into a motherboard design, Colorful had to make some obvious tweaks to the overall design. Gone are full-sized PCIe slots, for example. Instead, it looks like there are dual M.2 slots instead, which could be used for SSDs or Wi-Fi modules.... Read more...
NVIDIA's latest and greatest GeForce card, GTX 1080, is set to drop on the 27th. Leading up to that date, we're seeing a bunch of vendors show off their special designs in advance. We often don't get these sneak peaks before market availability, but as we can see, even if we do, there might be some details still held back. Case in point: inno3D. This Asian-based GeForce vendor has a new cooler coming called iChiLL, which will be available in two different flavors: iChiLL X3, and iChiLL X4. While inno3D is revealing what makes its iChiLL so good, it stops short of showing us what the actual card looks like. That's fine though, right? After all, it's what's inside a graphics card that counts; not... Read more...
A couple of weeks back, at a packed event in Austin, Texas filled with tech press and attendees from the DreamHack gaming event that took place up the road, NVIDIA CEO Jen Hsun-Huang unveiled the company’s newest graphics cards, the GeForce GTX 1080 and GeForce GTX 1070. These latest flagships represent a true generational leap in performance and efficiency, thanks to NVIDIA's new Pascal GPU architecture at their core and the bleeding-edge 16nm FinFET + VLSI manufacturing processes used to produce the chips. For the last few years, virtually all of the discrete GPUs being produced used a 28nm process. Mr. Huang made some lofty claims in regards to the GeForce GTX 1080’s efficiency and... Read more...
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 - Faster Than Titan X For Half The Cost, Faster Than 2x GTX 980 Tonight at an event in Austin, Texas, NVIDIA unveiled its highly anticipated next-generation, Pascal-based GeForce graphics cards, known as the GeForce GTX 1080 and GeForce GTX 1070.
