With these hot new sales though, it may be about time to take the plunge. First in our list is an MSI Gaming GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Ventus 3X 12GB OC (Pictured above). This... Read more...
Back in 2011, a little Polish game company released a game called Dead Island. It was a bit buggy and lacking in polish (no pun intended), but it was remarkably ambitious, and succeeded more than it failed. Dead Island was a big hit for the developer, Techland S.A., and so it went that "zombie game" sort of became... Read more...
When NVIDIA first released its "RTX" real-time ray-tracing graphics cards onto the world, the general reaction to the "what's-old-is-new-again" hybrid rendering paradigm was mostly a resounding "meh" because of the hefty performance hit it incurred on the then-new Turing-based GeForce RTX 2000 series. Most players... Read more...

Autonomous vehicles will likely become the future for getting around, but the technology is not quite there yet. We still hear about accidents that occur due to a driver not being behind the car's wheel or simple dumb mistakes. To help quell these issues in the future, NVIDIA has created the NVIDIA DRIVE Sim through... Read more...
NVIDIA is making big strides in 3D graphics, obviously with its latest Ampere-powered GeForce RTX 30 series, but the focus is not entirely on consumer products. Behind the scenes, it takes some intense development for the kind of scenes that companies like Pixar push out. To help with those sort of projects, NVIDIA... Read more...
NVIDIA may have their phasers set to kill in the graphics card market this year, especially with the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti which has now been leaked. According to two sources for VideoCardz, the “first mid-range Ampere card to launch this year is GeForce RTX 3060 Ti.” Until AMD launches Big Navi, NVIDIA will be ruling... Read more...
It has always been a matter of when, not if, real-time ray tracing would see widespread support. Looking to scoot things along, NVIDIA debuted its RTX hardware last year, which leverages Microsoft's DirectX Raytracing (DXR) API. It has still been a relatively slow process, in terms of developer support, but things are... Read more...
Applause broke out from the crowd at GTC 2019 when NVIDIA showcased a modded version of Quake II with overhauled graphics featuring real-time ray tracing and HDR visuals. Quake II RTX, as it is called, looks almost like a completely different game than the original version that launched over two decades ago. It was an... Read more...
NVIDIA has an obvious vested interest in seeing ray tracing technologies take off in a big way, both in the way they are adopted by developers and implemented into games, and how it is all received by consumers. To further showcase what ray tracing can do, NVIDIA has released some demos, and the best part (depending... Read more...

We were first introduced to NVIDIA's 12nm Volta GV100 GPU architecture back in early May 2017 when the Tesla V100 Accelerator debuted. NVIDIA later extended its GV100 GPU to the Titan V (you can read the HotHardware review here), which is aimed at professional and academic deep learning applications. Now, NVIDIA is... Read more...
Microsoft says that 3D gaming today is a lie. While the techniques game designers use can make games on your screen look like they're 3D, the rasterization process used ultimately only operates in two dimensions with 3D primitives mapped onto it via transformation matrices. Things are changing with the introduction... Read more...
