There is some new evidence to suggest NVIDIA is close to launching a new Ampere product, and specifically the oft-rumored GeForce RTX 3080 Ti, with more onboard memory than the non-Ti variant. It comes by way of leaked photos showing pallets of MSI-brand graphics cards being prepped for shipment, from China to the... Read more...
Intel hasn't even officially launched its 11th generation Tiger Lake-H family of mobile processors, but that isn't stopping retailers from getting the ball rolling early. According to recent leaks, the Tiger Lake-H family will consist of four SKUs, and three of them are represented in new MSI notebooks offered up for... Read more...
We loathe to be the bearer of bad news, but MSI has apparently decided it is going to jack up the prices of graphics cards amid tight supply. The silver lining, we suppose, is that actually finding a graphics card in stock is tougher than winning a fight with an armed grizzly bear, using just your bare hands. In other... Read more...

Remember the AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT? It's AMD's latest flagship graphics card based on 7nm Big Navi architecture promising robust gaming performance and the company's first implementation of real-time hardware ray tracing. And with an asking price of $999 (reference cards), the Radeon RX 6900 XT is a highly... Read more...
If you pay attention to the gaming peripherals and PC components market, you have surely heard of MSI and the gaming aesthetic the company gives to its products. MSI has a solid display lineup, and it is adding one more family of monitors to the list with the ARTYMIS Series. The first and only monitor in the lineup... Read more...

Intel's Tiger Lake mobile platform came out of the gate swinging, with excellent performance and improved power efficiency. The early Core i7-1185G7 development platform we evaluated set several mobile processor records in our benchmarks, and retail notebooks were just as strong when they arrived. So far we've reviewed two such notebooks from... Read more...
Intel is on the cusp of releasing its 11th Gen Core processors for the desktop, otherwise known as Rocket Lake-S, and motherboard makers are waiting in the wings for the big day. Biostar, for example, just announced a couple of flashy looking Z590 motherboards, one of which you can see above. Biostar is far from... Read more...
Among the many laptops that have been announced this week, MSI is looking to grab some headlines of its own with the new Stealth 15M. The Stealth 15M is a new gaming laptop that looks to impress by packing in an incredible amount of bleeding edge technology into a thin frame. Speaking of the chassis, MSI says that... Read more...
In this episode of HotHardware's 2.5 Geeks we'll be talking about that piggish little Epic Games Launcher that was just patched, MSI's BEASTLY custom GeForce RTX 3080 SUPRIM X, Lenovo's sweet and economical Yoga 7i laptop with Tiger Lake, Cyberpunk 2077 multithreading fixes and CPU/GPU performance, and details of TWO...

Despite the ongoing availability woes for current-generation GPUs, NVIDIA’s board partners continue to march forward with custom GeForce RTX 30-series designs, that are near complete departures from Founders Edition models. Case in point, the MSI GeForce RTX 3080 SUPRIM X we’ll be showing you here today. Although it is built around... Read more...
This has been a weird and trying year in many respects. Obviously the health ramifications of a deadly virus top the list. Far less important, but also interesting in its own respect, is the shortage of certain PC hardware, including AMD's latest generation Zen 3 CPUs, and the newest graphics cards from AMD and...

Give it some time and old things seem to always come back in style. This works in tech too, not just fashion. Remember when Nintendo released the NES Classic, followed by the SNES Classic? Both were hot commodities. Perhaps taking a lesson from that, MSI's new GeForce RTX 3090 Aero graphics card is a definite... Read more...
You know that opening scene in the original The Fast and the Furious flim, where Dominic and his crew surround a truck and hijack the cargo? Well, that was Hollywood fiction (which went on to spawn a whole bunch of sequels), but apparently someone (or some group) did actually make off with around $340,000 of GeForce... Read more...
NVIDIA is bolstering its line-up of Ampere-based GPUs today with a new addition to the GeForce RTX 30 series, the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti. As its name suggests, the new GeForce RTX 3060 Ti supplants the previous-gen, Turing-based GeForce RTX 2060 / RTX 2060 Super and slots-in just behind the recently-released GeForce RTX 3070, which we recently...

NVIDIA will no doubt flesh out its GeForce RTX 30 series with more SKUs, though when and exactly what is coming are questions that have yet to be answered. Officially, anyway. Unofficially, there have been numerous leaks and rumors pointing to a GeForce RTX 3060 Ti launching soon, and it looks like MSI is ready with a... Read more...
NVIDIA's so-called "BFGPU," the GeForce RTX 3090 has been in short supply since its release last month. The audience for the world's fastest graphics card might be a little limited thanks to its $1,500 MSRP, but that hasn't stopped them from fetching far more than that on eBay. One element that was missing at launch... Read more...
Earlier this week, AMD officially announced its brand-new Radeon RX 6800 Series of graphic cards. Unlike in previous generations, however, AMD is looking to compete toe-to-toe with NVIDIA at the high-end (in this case, GeForce RTX 30 Ampere). AMD's high-end strategy revolves around three SKUs: Radeon RX 6800, Radeon... Read more...
AMD made a splash last week by announcing its Ryzen 5000 series of CPUs based on Zen 3, with up to 16 cores and 32 threads, and a huge IPC (instructions per clock) uplift. What it did not do, however, is announce a new chipset. Whether one is coming or not for Zen 3 remains to be seen, but armed with the latest BIOS... 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... Read more...
AMD's next-generation Ryzen 5000 processors are just around the corner, and are highly anticipated by enthusiasts.
