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 3080 Ti launch is imminent. We still do not know with 100 percent certainty what the specifications will be and how pricing will shake out. Unofficially, the new SKU is expected to feature 10,240 CUDA cores and 12GB of GDDR6X memory tied to a fat 384-bit bus, the same bus width as found on the GeForce RTX 3090. It's also said the Ti variant of the 3080 will have a 1,396MHz base clock... Read more...
It seems you will have to wait a little bit longer to not be able to buy an upcoming Ti variant of NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 3080 and 3070 graphics cards. Rumor has it NVIDIA pushed back the launch of both cards. It's only a delay of around a couple of weeks, and for what reason, only NVIDIA knows. Not that it really matters in the grand scheme of things. Why is that? Well, we're certainly looking forward to NVIDIA fleshing out its Ampere lineup with faster versions of its existing cards, stamped with the "Ti" moniker. But the landscape being what it is right now—silicon shortage, scalpers and bots, cryptocurrency mining—most gamers inevitably will strike out trying to buy one, like every... 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. We don't have any official word on what that will be, but some early retail listings make it clear the Ti variant is going to be expensive. Rumor has it the card will launch at $999, same as AMD's Radeon RX 6900 XT. That at least seems plausible, considering NVIDIA's flagship GeForce RTX 3090 carries a $1,499 MSRP. Here's how it would fit into the MSRP hierarchy, if that ends up... Read more...
Gamers looking to purchase a current-generation graphics card from NVIDIA or AMD at MSRP have found the task damn near impossible. There are several reasons for this phenomenon, including the immense performance that these graphics cards provide in games; the resulting demand from gamers eager to get their hands on one; and the meteoric rise in the value of cryptocurrencies. One cryptocurrency that has been on an incredible run during 2021 is Ethereum, which is at an all-time high. Ethereum is currently sitting at just over $2,900 in value, a nearly 4x increase since the start of 2021. Bitcoin sharply increased its value over the past four months as well. The dominant cryptocurrency entered 2021... Read more...
The evidence is starting to mount that NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 3080 Ti will soon be upon us. Earlier this month, we saw a shipment of MSI GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Ventus 3X OC cards, and last week, the card was listed for preorder at a Polish electronics retailer. Now, yet another MSI card is basking in the limelight. Witness the MSI GeForce RTX 3080 Ti SUPRIM X, which was spied in its retail box before launch. As with previous SUPRIM X releases, this will represent the flagship of MSI's GeForce RTX 3080 Ti family. SUPRIM X cards feature a TRI FROZR 2S thermal design with TORX Fan 4.0, precision machined heat pipes, a copper baseplate, dual BIOS, Mystic Light RGB controls, and enhanced boost speeds compared...

In recent days, we've heard increasing rumors that NVIDIA will release a new revision GeForce RTX 30 Series "GAxx2" GPUs that feature an enhanced cryptocurrency mining limiter. Today with the release of the GeForce 466.24 driver, NVIDIA confirmed those rumors surrounding a mid-May launch. If you look at the release notes for the GeForce 466.24 driver, you'll find the following passage: "This driver updates the hash limiter for the GeForce RTX 3060 12GB and is required for product shipped starting mid-May." The folks at VideoCardz dug deeper into the new driver and discovered that the latest revision of the GeForce RTX 3060, which will carry the GA106-302 GPU, has a unique Device ID. While the...

Have you ever heard of a graphics card with "fearless cooling?" Well, you have now, because that is how Zotac is describing its new GeForce RTX 3090 ArcticStorm, which trades an air cooling shroud for a full coverage waterblock. It does not come with a factory overclock, but if your custom liquid cooling loop is up to snuff, you should be able to goose the clocks on this thing. We might be getting ahead of ourselves in focusing on the term "fearless cooling." The other term that might trip you up is "graphics card." We'd almost forgotten what one looks like, and according to ancient transcripts, these 3D accelerators once roamed the land and were plentiful, before scalpers, miners, and bots poached...

The consensus on the internet seems to be that the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and GeForce RTX 3070 Ti will be arriving relatively shortly on the consumer market. However, these new cards won't just bring increased gaming performance compared to the GeForce RTX 3080 and GeForce RTX 3070, respectively; they will also deliver at least two new features. This new round of alleged GAxx2 GPUs will have a revised version of the cryptocurrency mining limiter (which halved Ethereum hash rates) in place, as we've discussed on several occasions. NVIDIA's first-generation crypto limiter introduced with the GeForce RTX 3060 is easily bypassed. Ethereum miners first fooled the limiter using a beta driver provided... Read more...
Ethereum mining seems to be all the rage these days, and companies like NVIDIA are looking to cash in on the crypto mining gold rush. In February, NVIDIA announced its Crypto Mining Processor (CMP) HX family of dedicated Ethereum cards, with hash rates ranging from 26 MH/s for the CMP 30HX up to 80 MH/s for the CMP 90HX. According to NVIDIA, in the middle lays the CMP 40HX, which has a stated hash rate of 36 MH/s. However, the performance of an alleged prototype ASUS CMP 40HX card has been revealed, and it is shaping up to be quite impressive. VideoCardz was sent an image of a rig featuring not one but eight ASUS CMP 40HX cards. And instead of puttering along at the official 36 MH/s hash rate,... Read more...
Have you been experiencing gaming issues since the release of the latest Windows 10 update? You are not alone. The problems associated with the last Windows 10 update are being investigated by NVIDIA and others, and so far the suggestion is to just roll back the update. NVIDIA staff member “Manuel” stated in a forum post, “If you are seeing lower performance in games, check if rolling back Windows 10 Update KB5000842/KB5001330 solves the issue.” This solution has been previously tested by several Reddit users as well and, many confirmed that rolling back the update did seem to resolve the issues. Users have experienced a wide range of performance issues since they installed... Read more...
It is looking increasingly likely that the recent photo of a pallet of MSI GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Ventus 3X OC graphics cards being prepped for shipment from China to United States is real. And the US is not the only place the upcoming SKU is bound for—a Polish retailer has already put up a placeholder listing for the new card. Over at K-Com, the listing labels the card as "MSI GeForce RTX 3080 Ventus 3X OC 12G GDDR6X," which is pretty much the same as the labels that are visible in the aforementioned photo. There are no accompanying press renders or actual pictures of the card in the listing, and it does not mention a price or any other details. Here's a look... Click to Enlarge (Source:... Read more...
It's been just over six months since NVIDIA first launched the GeForce RTX 30 Series to much acclaim. The graphics cards offer excellent all-around performance and have been popular with gamers and crypto miners alike (for better or worse when it comes to supply). Although many of us can't get our hands on the current family of GeForce RTX 30 cards (at MSRP), NVIDIA is already well along in its plans to launch an Ampere refresh. We've already heard quite a bit about the upcoming GeForce RTX 3080 Ti, but NVIDIA is also reportedly readying the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti. The current GeForce RTX 3070 has 5888 CUDA cores, a base clock of 1.5GHz, a boost clock of 1.73GHz, and 8GB of GDDR6 memory. The upcoming... Read more...
At this point, it feels like a foregone conclusion that NVIDIA will be announcing a GeForce RTX 3080 Ti soon. We know, we know—the GPU market is in shambles right now, because of cryptocurrency mining, because of bots and scalpers, and because there just is not enough silicon to go around. Nevertheless, you can expect new product announcements to persist, even if you have next to zero chance of actually buying whatever comes out. In this case, the rumored GeForce RTX 3080 Ti will undoubtedly sell out immediately, and then join every other SKU on Out-Of-Stock island. Be that as it may, the Ti variant is set to become an actual product, with specifications and pricing. The question is, how... Read more...
Over the past few weeks, Amazon has been spilling the beans on upcoming ASUS Tiger Lake-H gaming laptops. Today, it's Lenovo's time in the spotlight, and we can't blame Amazon for the leak this time. In fact, it was Lenovo itself that briefly listed the specifications for its upcoming Legion 5 Pro gaming laptop (and made it available for purchase). The Legion Pro 5 is powered by up to a current-generation AMD Ryzen 7 5800H Zen 3 processor. It also has a 16-inch QHD display (2560x1600, 16:10) with a 165Hz refresh rate and is compatible with NVIDIA G-SYNC and AMD FreeSync. However, the more interesting news confirmed by Lenovo's product listing is the appearance of two unannounced NVIDIA GeForce... Read more...
Do you think NVIDIA is a little nervous that its planned acquisition of Arm will fall apart due to regulatory scrutiny? If so, NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang is displaying one heck of a poker face. During a recent question-and-answer session with the press following NVIDIA's GTC 2021 keynote, Huang addressed the topic, and expressed confidence that "regulators will see the wisdom of the transaction." The transaction, as Huang calls it, is a pretty big deal in the making. Not just monetarily—it's a massive $40 billion acquisition—but in the possible ripple effects it could have in the technology industry at large. That's because Arm's intellectual property (IP) is found in a wealth of everyday... Read more...
Several of NVIDIA's hardware partners have seemingly tipped the pending launch of a new Ampere SKU for gaming, the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti. Perhaps the strongest bit of evidence is a recently leaked photo of a pallet of supposed MSI GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Ventus 3X OC graphics cards being prepped for shipment from China to the United States. Following up on that leak, it's said the new SKU will launch at $999 (MSRP). Obviously there's little-to-no chance you will actually be able to buy one at MSRP, if and when the new part launches, at least not right away—the GeForce RTX 30 series is always out of stock. Save for a few lucky folk who beat the bots and miners to the punch, the ongoing shortage... Read more...
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 United States. This is the latest in a long line of leaks pointing to the impending launch of a GeForce RTX 3080 Ti. Another one of NVIDIA's add-in board (AIB) partners, Gigabyte, recently listed a dozen custom GeForce RTX 3080 Ti models with the Eurasian Economic Commission, including both factory overclocked and water cooled variants. And before that, the unannounced Ampere SKU had... Read more...
We reported earlier this week that NVIDIA would ship a new revision of the GeForce RTX 3060 desktop GPU -- GA106-302 -- that will put more stringent measures in place to cripple mining for cryptocurrencies like Ethereum (ETH). While the newest GeForce RTX 3060 offerings will likely be the first of these fortified, anti-mining graphics cards, they won't be the last. The GeForce RTX 3080 Ti has entered mass production, and it's alleged that early qualification samples had a crypto mining limiter that was just as easy to bypass as currently shipping GeForce RTX 3060 cards. However, GeForce RTX 3080 Ti GPUs currently in mass production with updated firmware are no longer able to use the 470.05 beta... Read more...
NVIDIA has been able to do some incredibly cool things with its efforts in artificial intelligence and machine learning, like make a Photoshop filter that can instantly age and transform faces. Ranking right up there, however, is bringing Knight Rider's KITT-infused ride to life in the NVIDIA Omniverse, an open platform built for virtual collaboration and real-time psychically accurate simulation. That in and of itself is noteworthy—few cars are as iconic as the 1982 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am equipped with KITT (Knight Industries Two Thousand), the highly advanced AI computer module that was always helping Michael Knight (played by David Hasselhoff) out of jams. Not traffic jams (well,... Read more...
It looks as though NVIDIA will take another stab at a cryptocurrency mining limiter for its GeForce RTX 3060 after its current solution was defeated via multiple methods. The current GeForce RTX 3060 features the GA106-300 GPU, but a report alleges that a newer revision, GA106-302, is on the way to reenable the limiter. This information reportedly comes from a Taiwanese graphics card manufacturer, which says that NVIDIA has already discontinued the GA106-300. NVIDIA's switch to the GA106-302 thwarts miners on two fronts. First of all, the 470.05 beta driver currently used by Ethereum miners is incompatible with the new GPU revision, which shuts down that popular workaround. HKEPC states that... 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 TU116-100 GPU. The GPU features 1408 CUDA cores, a boost clock of 1785MHz, and 6GB of 14 Gbps GDDR6 memory on a 192-bit memory bus. There are no video outputs on the card, and it features a WindForce 2X cooling system with counterrotating 90mm fan blades. There's also a composite copper heat pipe to keep the GPU [relatively] cool. Not surprisingly, given the stresses that these cards... Read more...
Corsair has gotten around to updating its lineup of compact gaming PCs with the latest generation CPU hardware from AMD (Ryzen 5000 series based on Zen 3) and Intel (11th Gen Core chips based on Rocket Lake-S). Just as enticing, both the updated Corsair One a200 and One i200 come equipped with NVIDIA's burly GeForce RTX 3080 graphics card. As we noted in our GeForce RTX 3080 review, the card is nothing short of impressive, delivering extreme performance across the board. It is an outstanding GPU for gaming at 4K and turning on real-time ray tracing effects. It's nice to see Corsair turning to one of NVIDIA's finest (second only to the GeForce RTX 3090) for its refreshed compact desktops. While... Read more...
