The Nvidia RTX 2070 was announced alongside its high-end RTX 2080 brethren at Gamescom in August, but we’ve had to wait until October 17 to get our hands on the mainstream Turing GPU. I guess you could make do with the monstrous RTX 2080 Ti… y’know, with your BIG pockets and oversized wallets. But if you want to harness ray tracing to augment your gaming, such as shadows and lighting, but don’t have a bathtub full of money lying around to spend on a graphics card, the RTX 2070 is likely the minimum requirement for real-time ray tracing in this generation. It seems unlikely at this point that Nvidia will fit the 2060, 2050 Ti, or 2050 GPUs with ray tracing RT Cores. The minimum performance for solid ray tracing in games is roughly 5-6 Giga Rays per second, with the Nvidia Turing-powered RTX 2070 just hitting the 6 Giga Rays per second mark, if a cheaper GPU were to release with fewer RT cores than the RTX 2070, the performance just … [Read more...] about Nvidia RTX 2070 GPU release date, specs, and performance

The Nvidia Tesla T4 has been announced and the name gives away that fact that this is not a gaming graphics card. This is a cut down version of the RTX 2080 that is going to focus on energy saving and efficiency. The graphics card is going to come with 2,560 CUDA cores and 320 Tensor Cores. The GPU is meant for AI computation, this is a Tesla-branded graphics card after all. Keeping in mind that this is a cut-down version of the RTX 2080, it is more than likely that the clock speeds are limited for this model as well in order to provide efficiency in the data centers. Nvidia Tesla T4 comes with 16GB of GDDR6 memory, 320GB/s of bandwidth, which is double what you get with the RTX 2080, even better than the RTX 2080 Ti in fact. You would imagine that this kind of specification does not come cheap and you would be right in thinking that. While we do not have official numbers regarding the price, we do know that memory is very expensive indeed and because this … [Read more...] about Nvidia Tesla T4 (Cut-down RTX 2080) Will Feature 2,560 CUDA, 320 Tensor Cores
The next-gen Nvidia RTX 2080 is coming, which means we’re getting ever closer to a whole new world of fresh-faced GeForce graphics cards. The next-gen GPUs will be revealed on August 20, just before Gamescom 2018 kicks off. It’s looking like AMD will cede graphics tech supremacy to Nvidia for 2018 – without even putting up much of a fight – leaving the green team as the only GPU crew likely to deliver us a new generation of graphics cards before the end of the year. But Nvidia has opted to break the rules with the next-gen graphics cards in favour of a more bombastic marketing opportunity. Nvidia has announced that its GeForce RTX 2080 will be powered by the Turing architecture, build from the ground up for ray tracing performance. It also looks like Nvidia plans on taking the lid completely off its next-gen GeForce cards at the end of August. Both the Hot Chips tech symposium, GeForce Gaming Celebration, and Gamescom are hitting around the 20th, so … [Read more...] about Nvidia RTX 2080 GPU release date, rumours, and performance
With the downfall of Cryptocurrency, the GPU prices have come down as the shortages had caused the prices to go sky high. However, despite the state of crypto mining and GPU prices coming down, most of the Nvidia and AMD GPU prices are still higher than their MSRP. Techspot just recently did a comparison of Nvidia And AMD GPU prices before and after the cryptocurrency mining downfall. While the analysis is a lengthy one but you can see the gist of it in the image below. According to the analysis, most Nvidia and AMD GPUs are still being sold at a higher price compared to their MSRP. Most of the GPUs saw a 9% drop in their price and despite that, the prices for Nvidia and AMD GPUs are still above their MSRP. According to the report, Nvidia’s high-end cards are close to their MSRP prices while the low-end and mid-range Nvidia GPUs are still way above their MSRP prices.As for the AMD GPUs, the lineup is still 15% above their MSRP and the report suggests that like Nvidia’s … [Read more...] about Nvidia And AMD GPU Prices Still 15% Above MSRP, What It Means For Next-Gen GPUs?
When are we going to see the Nvidia GTX 1180? That’s the big question right now, but the new GeForce GPUs are in the works, bringing us the next generation of Nvidia graphics cards. Nvidia is the only GPU crew to drop brand new gaming-focused graphics cards on us this year, with the GTX 1180 and GTX 1170 likely to be the vanguard of a new generation of GeForce GPUs. Or maybe they'll be named the GTX 2080 and GTX 2070 in favour of a more bombastic marketing opportunity... right now we still don't know. But there are things we do know about Nvidia’s next-gen cards. You’ll need a quality display to go with a new graphics card, so check out our pick of the best gaming monitors around. Nvidia hasn’t yet announced the naming, let alone the actual GPU architecture, behind its next generation of gaming cards, but we’ve still got a pretty good idea of the technology that’s going to be powering them and now we're pretty confident … [Read more...] about Nvidia GTX 1180 GPU release date, rumours, and performance
