There are many examples of why buyers should beware if they are considering perusing the used market for graphics cards. However, sellers of used, and possibly abused, old graphics cards have hit upon a new technique to deceive GPU hungry folk—painting memory chips to make them look factory fresh. After prolonged...

The so-called liquid metal thermal compounds are well regarded for their heat conductivity, but they come with extra hazards. They are thus not the best choice for novice or nervous PC DIYers. This fact is illustrated very clearly by a graphics card sent to overclocker Roman “der8auer” Hartung, which was in a very... Read more...
One of the more peculiar statements to come out of a processor company last year was AMD's insistence that the Navi 31 GPU was "architected for 3GHz". As hardware enthusiasts will likely be aware, even the top-end Radeon RX 7900 XTX doesn't approach 3GHz most of the time. It can go well past that clock rate in some... Read more...
Now that we are past the 4070Ti launch from CES earlier this month, we can begin to look toward the future of NVIDIA products. Of course, we are still hoping there is a 4090Ti waiting in the wings, but in the meantime, NVIDIA may be trying to lower the prices of their GPUs by introducing new variants of the RTX 4070...

Most of the time, when a graphics card fails, you'll either return it to the manufacturer (assuming it's inside its warranty period), sell it to someone for parts, or simply discard it. You could, however, send it to a repair shop like Germany's KrisFix. Around the world, electronics enthusiasts are starting repair... Read more...
If you follow the competitive overclocking scene at all, you are probably familiar (at least in passing) with the name of Shamino. The legendary figure works at ASUS now, but he's still up to his old tricks. In fact, he just released the simply-named "Arc OC Tool", which fellow expert tuner Skatterbencher used to take...

The starting price for a GeForce RTX 4090 is $1,599.99 for a Founders Edition model and custom cards that stick with the reference blueprint. From there, prices go up to around $2,000, or even higher if you're willing to pay scalper pricing on eBay. Or you could score an amazing deal and nab one from a major retailer... Read more...
The first purported images showing NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 graphics card packaging have emerged, and they depict what appears to be the inside and outside of a Founders Edition reference model carton. NVIDIA’s RTX 4070 remains unannounced, despite whispers that it would make an appearance at CES 2023. However, the... Read more...
So Intel's first discrete GPUs based on the Alchemist design, known as Arc A770, Arc A750, and Arc A380, have been out for a bit. Since that launch, they've seen significant performance improvements thanks to driver updates as well as the implementation of XeSS in titles like Marvel's Spider-Man, Hitman 3, and Redout...

NVIDIA's CES announcements were dominated by new product launches. First up was the desktop GeForce RTX 4070 Ti, and there was the new GeForce RTX 4080 tier for GeForce NOW, too. Arguably the most important of the announcements was the launch of Ada Lovelace GPUs for laptops. It's a whole family this time, ranging... Read more...
The day we all knew was coming has finally arrived, that being when NVIDIA formally introduces the world to its latest Ada Lovelace entry, the Geforce RTX 4070 Ti. It's more of a re-introduction really. Today's reveal officially confirms the specs to be the same as the 'unlaunched' GeForce RTX 4080 12GB, which has not... Read more...
The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 launch precipitated some of the greatest—yet gargantuan—graphics cards we had ever seen. However, back in November we saw a Chinese graphics card maker showcasing renders of an RTX 4090 with a blower-style cooler, and NVIDIA reference specs. Now, photos of what look like shipping versions... Read more...
NVIDIA's decision to cancel (or "unlaunch") the GeForce RTX 4080 12GB card was apparently because it wasn't "named right." That's fair enough, given the wide gulf in specifications between the extant RTX 4080 and the canceled card. However, the card's $899 price was also a point of contention, and many people have...

Here's something most HotHardware readers probably know: the same GPU core is used for many different models of graphics card. Case in point: the GA102 processor is used for every GeForce RTX 3000-series model from the RTX 3080 on up the stack. However, what you may not know is that it can go the other way: sometimes...

If you read reviews of AMD's recent Radeon releases, you may have noticed a trend. Many outlets, including us, noticed a huge gulf between the average GPU temperature and the GPU hotspot reading. Deltas of 30°C aren't uncommon, and some users have seen even larger gaps. It turns out AMD is aware of the issue, and is... Read more...
Boy, that GeForce RTX 3090 sure is a gigantic graphics card. At least, that's what we all thought when it came out. Now, the GeForce RTX 4090 has hit the market and made the last-gen "BFGPU" look positively puny. High-end graphics cards are getting bigger, and have been for some time. Gigabyte's Aorus Twitter account... Read more...
Yeston is a computer components company that is most known, at least in the West, for offering parts with a cutesy, anime-inspired aesthetic. The company's products are well-regarded in that niche, at least, and its new Radeon RX 7900 Sakura looks to continue the trend. Revealed in all of its plastic-and-metal... Read more...
MSI can be a weirdly polarizing brand. By any reasonable measure the company makes quality products, but for whatever reason MSI tends to be a love-'em-or-hate-'em brand. If you're a die-hard member of the Dragon Army, you might've been wondering where MSI's new Radeon cards are. Well, the answer is that they don't... Read more...
Did you check out our review of the new RDNA-3-based Radeons yet? Those GPUs are extremely high-powered in every sense, and that means that they're out of reach for the majority of the market. Intel's Raja Koduri apparently intends to target exactly that meaty middle, as he recently told a group of Indian tech... Read more...
We're just a couple of days out from the December 13th launch of AMD's next-generation Radeon GPUs based on its RDNA 3 architecture. The first will be the Radeon RX 7900 XTX and the similarly-named but slightly-slower Radeon RX 7900 XT. When AMD announced these, it rated the faster card for a 2.3 GHz game clock and... Read more...
A well-regarded Twitter tech leaks source has spilled the specifications of both the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Ti and RTX 4070. For some interesting context, Harukaze5719 has tabulated the purported key specs of the yet to be officially launched RTX 4070 tier GPUs. Earlier this week we covered the accidental reveal by...

NVIDIA finds itself as the sole player in the next-gen GPU market with its GeForce RTX 4090 and GeForce RTX 4080 graphics card, and that will continue to be the case until AMD releases its Radeon RX 7900 XTX and Radeon RX 7900 XT to retail next week. Interestingly, and maybe not coincidentally, NVIDIA just lowered the... Read more...
