AMD is yet to announce its next-gen GPUs despite Nvidia already releasing RTX 2080 and 2080 Ti. While AMD isn’t revealing anything but, Radeon RX 590 benchmarks have leaked online. The leaked Radeon RX 590 benchmarks reveal the GPU performance is somewhere between the GTX 1070 and GTX 1060. The benchmarks were leaked by the 3DMark database and the GPU scored 5,028 in TimeSpy. According to the leaked Radeon RX 590 benchmarks, the GPU features 1,545MHz of clock speed with 8 GB of VRAM. This indicates that AMD will stick with GDDR5 memory for VRAM. While it isn’t confirmed but, speculation is that Radeon RX 590 will be based on Polaris 30 architecture. The Polaris 30 architecture itself is based on the 12 nm process node. Seems like AMD is gearing up to compete with the GTX 2060. Speaking of the AMD GPUs, a report suggests that AMD Arcturus will be the next GPU architecture following Navi. Furthermore, the GPUs based on the Arcturus architecture will be follow up to Polaris … [Read more...] about Leaked Radeon RX 590 Benchmarks Make It A Fierce Competitor For GTX 2060
Nvidia’s new Turing GPUs have already arrived in desktop form with the RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti appearing back in September, and now WCCFTech is claiming the entire mobility line of Turing chips is going to be launched at CES in January. That means all those back-to-school and Black Friday gaming laptops are going to be replaced once the new 20-series mobile GPUs launch next year. The WCCFTech source has delivered a full list of the mobility chips, with the RTX 2080 Max-Q design sitting at the top of the tech tree, though doesn’t say whether there will also be a standard RTX 2080 version. There will apparently be both standard and Max-Q versions of the RTX 2070, however, but potentially most interesting is the listing of both RTX 2060 and RTX 2060 Ti mobile GPUs. If Nvidia follows the same desktop-laptop route it took with the 10-series GPUs then that could mean we’ll get both RTX 2060 and RTX 2060 Ti cards on the desktop too. Whether any of them will actually get the … [Read more...] about Nvidia 2060 Ti GPU rumours spill out of the CES RTX 2080 Max-Q leak
These are potentially nervy times for AMD’s graphics division. Nvidia is all set to launch a brand new GeForce graphics card generation, and this time it’s coming out, all shaders blazing, promising a new standard in PC gaming fidelity. With the performance gap only set to widen between the Radeon and GeForce camps as these new cards appear, and the promise of real-time ray tracing and deep-learning fixing up your graphics, what the hell can AMD to do in response? It all started at SIGGRAPH where Nvidia first announced it was indeed unveiling a new GPU architecture with the codename, Turing, and that it was going to be “the greatest leap since the invention of the CUDA GPU.” Bold claims. But the twin pillars Nvidia’s bravado is built on is Microsoft’s DXR API and its own RTX combo of hardware and software. All of which are designed to facilitate real-time ray tracing coming to games this year and beyond. Then at Gamescom, just a … [Read more...] about What AMD can do to combat Nvidia’s RTX graphics cards
Yes, it’s true*, the Nvidia GTX 2080 Ti has appeared in an online benchmark database in a way that is absolutely guaranteed** not to have been in any way faked. An Ashes of the Singularity benchmark has shown up online which shows the next high-end GeForce GPU nailing the Crazy 1080p benchmark preset. And delivering essentially the same score in DirectX 12 as a GTX 1080 does in the same benchmark using the Vulkan API. If that doesn’t make it completely believable then how about the GPU name showing up with the suffix ‘special supply for GSS’? Now you must be convinced, right? Want to see the best GPUs you can actually buy? Check out our pick of the best graphics cards around. The benchmark was picked up by Tum Apisak, who is all about benchmark leaks, though he does seem to be questioning it. I can’t think why he would be, because there is absolutely nothing about this appearance in the AotS database that could be faked, surely. That level of GPU … [Read more...] about Nvidia’s GTX 2080 Ti has leaked in the most totally believable way, honest
There's surely not long to wait now. After two years with Nvidia's 10-series GPUs based on the Pascal architecture, we're finally due an upgrade. With several sources strongly suggesting a July launch date, Nvidia's next 'GPU King' may well be just around the corner, but what specs will it have? How powerful it be? In a market notorious for its often-accurate leaks, it's actually surprising how little we know, but there's enough information out there to at least give a broad overview of what we can expect.First of all though, it's worth commending Nvidia on just how tightly its next-gen GPU line-up has been locked down. Even the name of the new series and the upcoming flagship remains unconfirmed. A GTX 1180 to kick off an 11-series product line-up? Or a GTX 2080 with a brand shift to a 20-series? In a world where specs often arrive months before release, even the name of the new line-up is unknown right now. Certainly, there's been nothing like the Pascal production line leak that … [Read more...] about Nvidia GTX 1180/2080 specs and performance: what should we expect?
