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

For many PC gamers, the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 is the next logical step up from the excellent GTX 970. While not as powerful as the beefy Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080, it still offers significant gains over its lesser sibling, the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060, providing a smoother, more flexible gaming experience at both 1080p and 1440p alike, and even a teeny bit of 4K. The problem is, graphics card prices have currently sky-rocketed beyond all reasonable consideration at the moment, putting potential GTX 1070 buyers in a bit of a tough spot. In fact, we wouldn’t recommend buying any mid-to-high-end graphics card at the moment until this crypto-mining business settles down again.
