Nvidia will launch its next-generation GeForce RTX 20-series graphics cards on September 20, starting with the RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti, followed by the RTX 2070 in October. These will use the new Turing architecture, which boasts more cores than the previous generation Pascal architecture, along with significant updates that should deliver more performance per core. Also included are new technologies to enable real-time ray tracing in games, and deep learning Tensor cores.There's a lot to cover, and Nvidia is rightly calling this the most significant generational upgrade to its GPU since the first CUDA cores in 2006. Turing promises better performance than existing GPUs, and has the potential to fundamentally change what we expect from graphics. Here's everything you need to know about the RTX 2080 Ti, RTX 2080, and RTX 2070, the Turing architecture, pricing, specs, and more.Pricing and release dates for the GeForce RTX seriesNvidia has only announced three GeForce RTX models so far. … [Read more...] about Everything you need to know about Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 2080, RTX 2080 Ti, and RTX 2070

If you’re after a top notch GPU, Nvidia’s GeForce cards are the only real contender, and if you’ve got money to burn and want the best out of your gaming experience, the GTX 1070 and GTX 1080 are where it’s at. Both cards, like the rest of the 10-series, use Nvidia’s Pascal architecture, that boasts superior performance and power efficiency. The GTX 1080 is the flagship Pascal GPU, and is undoubtedly a beast of a graphics card, with the price tag to match. It’s primed for 4K gaming, and while the GTX 1070 isn’t quite so beefy when it comes to power and performance, it handles 1440p just fine.Nvidia rolled out both graphics cards in the summer of 2016, with their Ti counterparts launching the following year. They’re slightly more expensive than the vanilla versions but offer increased memory and better performance. Let’s get down to the nitty gritty and dive into what separates the GPUs, aside from the price tag. And if you're … [Read more...] about What’s the difference between the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080ti and GTX 1070ti?
Nvidia GPUs have been here with us for as long as we can remember. But how did it all start and where did it start from? If that is something that you are interested in then this is what we are going to talk about here. Nvidia NV1 Nvidia took off back in 1993, but the company did not have its first product until 1995, the NV1. The GPU was very innovative for its time and could handle both 2D and 3D video. Other than that the Nvidia NV1 was used in the Sega Saturn game console. The NV1 used PCI interface with 133 MB/s of bandwidth. Other than that the graphics card used EDO memory clocked at up to 75 MHz, and the card supported a resolution of 1600×1200 with 16-bit color. After the success of the Nvidia NV1, the company started on working on a successor for the graphics card, the NV2. There were a few disagreements with Sega, because of which Sega took a different route and the NV2 was canceled. Nvidia NV3 / Riva 128 The Nvidia NV3 came out in 1997 and turned out to be more … [Read more...] about Evolution of Nvidia GPUs in Last 20 Years, From First to the Latest
Nvidia has been rolling out new GPUs almost every year, however, the evolution of the technology comes at the cost of older tech becoming obsolete and something similar has happened with Nvidia Fermi GPUs or GTX 400, GTX 500 and GTX 600 series GPUs as Nvidia is no longer supporting them. The Nvidia Fermi GPUs or GTX 400, GTX 500 and GTX 600 series GPUs will no longer receive game-ready drivers, “performance enhancements, new features, and bug fixes”. However, Nvidia has not totally abandoned these Nvidia Fermi GPUs as the company will still continue to roll out critical security updates for these GPUs. The following is the full list of Nvidia Fermi GPUs that will no longer be supported by Nvidia. NVIDIA GeForce 410 NVIDIA GeForce 510 NVIDIA GeForce 605 NVIDIA GeForce 610M NVIDIA GeForce 620M NVIDIA GeForce 705A NVIDIA GeForce 705M NVIDIA GeForce 710A NVIDIA GeForce 710M NVIDIA GeForce 720A NVIDIA GeForce 720M NVIDIA GeForce 800M NVIDIA GeForce 810M NVIDIA … [Read more...] about Nvidia Fermi GPUs Support Dropped By Nvidia, Will No Longer Receive Game-Ready Driver Upgrades
