One of the greatest benefits of being a PC gamer is the unfettered backward compatibility. You can load up PC games from the 1980s and 1990s right now on the same machine you use to play Cyberpunk 2077, and they'll run just fine. Moreover, they'll use a lot less power because they don't need to fire up your... Read more...
Everyone's waiting anxiously for the release of new Intel Arc graphics cards to see how they stack up to the competition from AMD and NVIDIA, but don't forget that Intel has already released a couple of Arc products. Laptops packing the Alchemist-based A370M and A350M GPUs are slowly trickling into the market, and of... Read more...
The United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has accepted a $5.5 million settlement offer from NVIDIA over findings that it "failed to disclose" in its filings that "cryptomining was a significant factor in year-over-year growth" from its GPU sales. Though NVIDIA submitted the offer, which the SEC... Read more...
The top selling graphics card on Amazon is Gigabyte's GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Gaming OC with a factory overclock and custom 3X Windforce cooling solution. After that, MSI's GeForce RTX 3080 (LHR) is the next best-selling GPU, followed by Zotac's GeForce RTX 3060 Twin Edge OC. And so it goes for the top 10 best sellers—all... Read more...
For the first time in a very long time, you can snag a custom GeForce RTX 3080 Ti graphics card at the launch price NVIDIA set for its Founders Edition model when it debuted in September 2020. That's actually a deal, both in this landscape and considering that this is a factory overclocked model with a custom cooling... Read more...
As far as we know Intel's Arc Alchemist GPUs are coming in the form of either two or three chips: one with 512 Execution Units (EUs), a much smaller one with 128 EUs, and possibly a mid-size model with 256 EUs. Armed with that knowledge, an experienced enthusiast might reasonably expect Intel to launch five or six... Read more...
Back when the Radeon RX 6500 XT came out to fanfare reminiscent of a Monty Python film's wheezing trumpets, AMD also noted that it had an even less capable card, the RX 6400, on its way to OEMs. The processor used for both cards, the RDNA2-based Navi 24, was originally intended exclusively for laptops, but has found...

As the days and months go on, it gets increasingly difficult to remember a time when graphics card were plentiful and ripe for picking, like an orchard full of delicious apples just waiting to be yanked. Will things ever return back to normal? There have been some encouraging signs and developments, though for prices... Read more...
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...
Mobile GPUs are cool and all, but everyone wants to see the high-end halo product. A GPU that can run games in 1080p without drawing a lot of power is probably a lot more practical than a high-end processor that can pump out a hundred 4K frames every second, but it's just not exciting. That's why we're so interested... Read more...
The number of gamers chugging along on pre-RTX graphics hardware is disheartening, but it's impossible to blame the gamers themselves given the state of the market in the last few years. Whatever theory you subscribe to, whether it's the fault of miners, coronavirus, scalpers, malicious market manipulation, or some... Read more...
It has been quite the busy month for customs authorities in China. In two separate incidents, agents seized thousands of improperly labeled XFX-brand graphics cards worth millions of dollars and 160 Intel Alder Lake processors as multiple individuals seemingly tried to avoid paying custom fees (or, in the case of the...

Once upon a time, it was thought desktop Arc Alchemist cards would be out in January, but January came and went without a peep. Folks latched onto rumors that they'd be here in March, but then Intel instead promised cards for Q2 this year in an investor meeting last month. What about now? The latest information...

Our sarcasm should be palpable, but just in case anyone thinks we're being the least bit serious about starting a GoFundMe for GPU scalpers, we're not. They don't need a GoFundMe, they can go you-know-what instead. Their financial well-being notwithstanding, the good news here is that prices of graphics cards in the... Read more...
Have you ever noticed that basically all extant mid-range and high-end graphics cards support four display outs? Why has that become the standard? Who knows. It does seem to be the accepted configuration for the last few generations of GeForce and Radeon cards, though. Vendors building graphics cards based on Intel's... Read more...
It's been a depressing year for gamers looking to build a new gaming PC or wanting to upgrade an existing one with a swank GPU. Graphics cards have been hard to find and way overpriced. There's a glimmer of hope for would-be buyers, though. The latest GPU price tracking data shows that graphics cards are finally... Read more...
Have you been striking out on finding a graphics card that's both in stock and selling for anywhere remotely close to MSRP? Join the club. While frustrating, the key to GPU bliss can be found if you're willing to shift your focus to your keyboard for a miniature replica. No, the ASUS ROG TouchStone keycap won't run... Read more...
Intel's upcoming Arc Alchemist GPUs is easily one of the most-covered series of pre-release products in the history of HotHardware. We've talked about the scavenger hunt, speculated on release dates, admired illicit photos, remarked on the marketing, and perused many leaked benchmarks. Heck, we posted one of the... Read more...
Finding a graphics card in stock from a first-party retailer could soon be a little bit easier than it has been in a very long time. That's not to say the shortage is about to end. However, those within the supply chain apparently feel confident that an uptick in ABF (Ajinomoto Build-up Film) substrate shipments will... Read more...
If you’re anxiously awaiting NVIDIA's new affordable GeForce RTX 3050 series but were skeptical you'd ever see one, we may have a reason to take heart. The word on the street is that NVIDIA has a large stock of the budget RTX 30 series GPUs making its way to graphics card manufacturers. It may not be as powerful as... Read more...
Yeah, I know, the latter part of the headline is an instant trigger for anyone who tried to get their hands on a graphics card last year and was unsuccessful. But I 'm choosing to be optimistic anyway, because the alternative is to spend another year in frustration. And maybe that's inevitable. But there are actually... Read more...
Given inflated prices and limited availability making it difficult for consumers to buy graphics cards, it's been a reasonable play for PC gamers to build machines with the intent to game on their integrated graphics solutions in the interim. Modern IGPs from Intel and especially AMD are quite capable, and can hold... Read more...
