Late last year, when we first heard about the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti, it was rumored that the card would debut with 20GB of GDDR6X memory. However, at launch, the card instead featured 12GB of GDDR6X compared to 10GB for the standard GeForce RTX 3080. Apparently, there was some truth to those early rumors, as... Read more...
It's been just over a month since AMD officially launched its Radeon RX 6600 XT graphics card with 8GB of GDDR6 memory. That's not the end of the road for AMD's Radeon 6000 series, though. More models will inevitably be introduced, and if newly leaked renders are any indication, a Radeon RX 6600 (non-XT) is in the... Read more...
Who knew that being a tech enthusiast (or even just a consumer of electronic gadgets) could be so harrowing? Okay, it's not truly that dire, but in the span of about a week, we've reported on a Galaxy A21 smartphone catching fire on an Alaska Airlines plane (prompting an evacuation), and an issue with certain Gigabyte...

Gigabyte is coming under scrutiny for what has apparently morphed into a confusing RMA policy, as part of an unsolicited offer to replace certain PSU models that failed under stress testing by multiple reviewers. There is quite a bit to unpack there, right? So let's back up a moment and start from the beginning (which... Read more...
Some of Gigabyte's support sites have been taken offline, the result of an apparent ransomware attack in which a hacking group claims to be in possession of sensitive data, and is holding it hostage. If a ransom is not paid, the culprits say they will publish 112 gigabytes of stolen files, including ones containing... Read more...
Late last night, under the cover of darkness, AMD announced its latest flagship offering for 1080p gaming fanatics: the Radeon RX 6600 XT. Of course, the card wasn't a surprise to the enthusiast community, as it has been rumored for months. The Radeon RX 6600 XT is based on AMD's RDNA 2 architecture and features 32... Read more...
Water-cooled graphics cards aren't exactly new. For years, enthusiasts who build their own custom liquid cooling loops have incorporated blocks onto their GPUs to keep the heat at bay without producing a ton of noise. In recent years, some manufacturers have released cards with their own closed-loop AIO coolers... Read more...
Microsoft may have needlessly stressed a lot of people out when it released its PC Health Check app, which was designed to help determine a system's compatibility for running Windows 11. Seemingly capable PCs could (and did) fail the test because of a Trusted Module Platform (TPM 2.0) requirement, even though in many... Read more...
At first glance, Gigabyte's latest PCIe 4.0 add-in board looks like a low-profile graphics card with an aluminum heatsink and dual fans. However, it's actually the Aorus Xtreme Gen4 AIC SSD, which brings impressive capacity and performance stats to the enthusiast PC table. First off, let's talk about the capacity of... Read more...
AMD has not yet announced the Radeon RX 6600 XT, which seems like an inevitable addition to its RDNA 2 stack. While not necessarily a foregone conclusion, multiple leaks and rumors leave us with high confidence that the unofficial SKU will become official at some point. And perhaps soon, evidenced by Gigabyte listing... Read more...
The launch of NVIDIA's latest Ampere graphics cards is right around the corner (tomorrow to be exact), which means that more information is leaking out about both the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti and the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti. The only logical price point for the former is $599, while the latter is likely to come in at... Read more...
Extremely fast SSDs are becoming more commonplace in the PC enthusiast realm. As such, we regularly see new SSDs announced that have sequential read/write speeds surpassing 6,500MB/sec and even 7,000MB/sec. However, the problem arises when these SSDs must throttle performance due to the immense heat generated when... Read more...
Gigabyte today made its new Lite Hash Rate (LHR) GeForce RTX 3060 cards official. We've heard about upcoming GPU revisions for the GeForce RTX 30 Series with a second-generation Ethereum limiter onboard, but Gigabyte is among the first to post actual product pages confirming the change. NVIDIA's GeForce 466.24 driver... Read more...
In a deleted post on Reddit, a user shared a photo of multiple retail boxed MSI GeForce RTX 3080 Ti graphics cards that a retailer in the UAE supposedly shared with them. NVIDIA has not yet announced the new SKU, but the leaks and rumors are piled up a mile high at this point, leaving little doubt that a GeForce RTX... Read more...
Let's face it, suggested retail pricing on graphics cards is largely academic, because any available inventory sells out in nanoseconds anyway. Scalpers then hawk them on eBay and Craigslist for jacked up prices. Be that as it may, every SKU still gets an MSRP, and that includes NVIDIA's upcoming GeForce RTX 3080 Ti... Read more...
We got our first look at Gigabyte's first NVIDIA CMP HX card back in early March when a single photo leaked. Today, Gigabyte is ready to get official with the cryptocurrency mining card, designated as the NVIDIA CMP 30HX D6 6G (GV-N30HXD6-6G). As we had already surmised, the CMP 30HX D6 6G is based on NVIDIA's Turing... Read more...
It is entirely possible that Gigabyte has tipped a new AMD motherboard chipset for its upcoming Zen 3 refresh (Zen 3+), otherwise known by the codename Warhol, which is expected to arrive by the end of the year. While nothing is confirmed, rumor has it AMD is planning to launch a stack of Zen+ CPUs to put itself in a... Read more...
Gigabyte is tickled pink that one of its high-end motherboards was used to set an overclocking record with Intel's flagship Core i9-11900K processor based on Rocket Lake. Liquid nitrogen should take a bow as well, because it took frigid temperatures to allow Intel's flagship CPU to hit an insanely high 7,314MHz, which... Read more...
In mid-February, NVIDIA announced that it would unleash a new GPU family called the Crypto Mining Processor (CMP HX). To ease some pressure off GeForce RTX 30 supplies, NVIDIA is pushing the CMP HX family as an excellent option for enthusiasts looking to mine for cryptocurrencies like Ethereum. As NVIDIA explained at... Read more...
We have just one more day to go before NVIDIA releases its GeForce RTX 3060 to retail, which will be the most affordable version of Ampere thus far. Well, provided retailers and NVIDIA's add-in-board (AIB) partners stick to the MSRP, or thereabouts. As it pertains to the latter, Gigabyte has introduced an Aorus... Read more...
Yesterday, we reported that Intel has effectively blocked customers who bought H410- and B460-based motherboards from upgrading to its upcoming 11th generation Rocket Lake-S processors. Those customers are effectively pigeonholed into only using 10th generation Comet-Lake based processors, which feature an LGA-1200... Read more...
One of the more reliable sources for leaked information on unannounced graphics cards is the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) website, as companies register their products in anticipation of a pending launch. So what does the EEC website reveal to us today? According to a recent listing by Gigabyte, we have... Read more...
