Unlike a few years ago, GPU makers are not really pushing the use of multiple graphics cards, at least not as heavily as they once were. Even so, NVIDIA has not abandoned the technology. Incidentally, recent driver releases seem to support a checkerboard rendering scheme that can improve performance on SLI... Read more...
It has been about a month since NVIDIA officially launched the GeForce RTX 2080 and flagship RTX 2080 Ti. Having thoroughly tested the cards, we know that the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti in particular is a powerhouse; if you want to see how it compares to other high-end graphics cards, you can check out our numbers right here. Today, however,...

Running multiple graphics cards in SLI or CrossFire was once a point of emphasis by NVIDIA and AMD, respectively, though not so much any more. Will that change NVIDIA's newly announced GeForce RTX cards? Here's the thing—both the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and GeForce RTX 2080 support NVLink to chain together two or more... Read more...
It’s evolving. Alienware’s Area-51 is back with new upgrades to accommodate Intel’s most demanding enthusiast CPU yet – the Core i9-7980XE. Sure, on the surface everything seems similar to previous iterations of the machine, but within something new courses through its veins. The new Alienware... Read more...
As long as we have been able to cram multiple video cards into our computers, the branding from NVIDIA and AMD had been the same. NVIDIA calls its multi-GPU tech SLI and AMD has coined theirs CrossFire. With the release of the new drivers to allow gamers to put multiple Radeon RX Vega graphics cards inside gaming PCs...

If you are a gamer that is still getting by with Windows 8.1 or even Windows 7 as your primary operating system of choice, there are a number of storms that are brewing to rain on your parade. Yesterday, we brought you news that Microsoft is completely shutting down Windows Update for AMD Ryzen and Intel Kaby Lake PCs... Read more...
When it comes to over-the-top gaming hardware, Acer knows how to put on a show. Such is the case with the monstrous Predator 21 X gaming notebook, which is set to launch next month. Announced today at CES, the Predator 21 X is the world’s first curved screen notebook, and as its name implies, it measures a massive... Read more...
When NVIDIA announced the new GeForce GTX 1080 and GeForce GTX 1070 graphics cards last month, the company introduced an update to its SLI interface. Dubbed SLI HB Bridge, it offers double the bandwidth compared to the previous generation Maxwell architecture. This enables 2560x1440 gaming at 120+ Hz along with... Read more...
As much as we’d love to drop everything we're doing and dive in head first with this absolutely HOT piece of hardware that just landed in the lab, there is just too much happening over the next few days with Computex starting, and a handful of high-profile launches to go along with it. In any event, an EVGA GeForce... Read more...
The developers at Rocksteady Studios have given up on fixing multi-GPU support in Batman: Arkham Knight. Publisher Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment (just WB from here on out) confirmed that was the case when addressing a gamer's question on Steam's community forums. At this point in game's development -- post...

There have been 75 million Windows 10 installs to date, and though things have mostly gone well, some NVIDIA users are experiencing issues running more than one graphics card. Good news -- NVIDIA this week rolled out a hotfix driver (version 355.80) to address one of the SLI issues that's been plaguing... Read more...
There are plenty of ways to bling out your PC with an LED light show. You can install LED fans, cold cathode tubes, LED strips, and a few other options. Still not enough? Than perhaps you'll be interested to know that NVIDIA, for the first time ever, has begun selling GeForce GTX SLI LED bridges in 2-Way, 2-Way Spaced, and 3-Way Spaced configurations.... Read more...
At GDC a few weeks ago, NVIDIA teased a new set of drivers that it promised would offer huge scaling benefits for both single-GPU and SLI configurations. The new driver, 337.50 Beta, drops today -- so what kind of gains can users expect? If you own a high-end NVIDIA card, apparently quite a bit, especially if you game... Read more...
While AMD just announced a whole new line of graphics cards, which generally results in system builders announcing new configuration options with the impending products inside, at least one boutique builder is going in another direction entirely--all the way in the other direction, actually. Origin PC CEO and co-founder Kevin Wasielewski told... Read more...
Calling the Alienware M18x R2 a laptop is like referring to a Harley Davidson as a bicycle. Both have handlebars and ride on two wheels, but when the rubber hits the road, the Harley's going to leave a Schwinn in the rear-view mirror. So it goes with the Alienware system we abducted from Dell. Technically, it's a gaming laptop, but more accurately,... Read more...
One of the things we like about AVADirect is the extensive catalog of off-the-shelf parts to choose from. In fact, a major advantage of shopping from a boutique system builder as opposed to a bulk OEM is the availability of name brand hardware you'd otherwise buy from Newegg, or wherever it is you purchase your components, when rolling your...

Asus has never been a company to shy away from offering over-the-top, custom products that command a price premium. Here's proof. Perhaps it’s because the company is large enough, and thus, has the resources to cater to virtually all market segments, big or small. Or perhaps the top brass at Asus just likes inducing slack-jawed stares... Read more...

We’re all for well-built reference cards that put reliability and compatibility front and center, but there’s just something exciting about an over-the-top custom graphics card that gets our juices flowing. We think many of you probably feel the same, so we couldn’t resist posting some pictures of a graphics card of... Read more...
A few weeks back, NVIDIA broke the news that official SLI support was coming to some future AMD chipset-based motherboards. And the first of those ‘boards has arrived in the HH labs, the Asus CrossHair V Formula. The Asus CrossHair line of motherboards for AMD processors has long been a favorite amongst enthusiast and this latest addition... Read more...
There's a scene in Step Brothers where Brennan Huff, played by Will Ferrell, asks Dale Doback, played by John. C. Reilly, "Did we just become best friends?" The answer is an emphatic "Yep!," and the two then decide to go practice karate in the garage. AMD and Nvidia don't live together, nor would we go so far to tag them as BFFs, but the two...
