Nvidia initially may have been a bit disillusioned at what kind of premium gamers would be willing to pay for features that are not yet widely adopted, hence why sales of its GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, 2080, and 2070 graphics cards have not met the company's expectations, as it candidly admitted recently. But then came along the GeForce RTX 2060, a more affordable entry into the world of real-time ray tracing and Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS). For gamers in need of an upgrade, the GeForce RTX 2060 is one of the best graphics cards to consider, and is a clear winner over the similarly priced GeForce GTX 1070.Now comes along the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti, however, and suddenly the choice is a bit murkier for anyone with a few hundred bucks to spend on a graphics card. It doesn't boast the same bells and whistles as Nvidia's RTX cards, but it does trounce the previous generation GeForce GTX 1060, and does so at a palatable price.Judged on cost alone, the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti is the clear … [Read more...] about GeForce RTX 2060 vs GTX 1660 Ti: Which graphics card should you buy?
Which graphics card to buy
I know it seems like I’ve been comparing the new Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti with practically every graphics card under the sun recently, including Nvidia’s RTX 2060 and GTX 1060, but now it’s time to take one final look at how it stacks up against its other main competition, the GTX 1070. Costing just a little bit more than the GTX 1660 Ti at time of writing, is there any hope at all that the GTX 1070 might still be worth buying? Let’s find out with the help of some lovely graphs. GTX 1660 Ti vs GTX 1070: How we test Just like my GTX 1660 Ti vs GTX 1060 and GTX 1660 Ti vs RTX 2060 articles, I’ve tested each card with my general games benchmarking suite at 1920×1080 and 2560×1440 resolutions. That includes Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Final Fantasy XV (with Nvidia’s fancy HairWorks, TurfEffects, VXAO and ShadowLibs effects turned off), Monster Hunter: World, The Witcher III, Forza Horizon 4, Total War: Warhammer … [Read more...] about Nvidia GTX 1660 Ti vs GTX 1070: Which graphics card is faster?
Nvidia is set to be one of Samsung’s 7nm EUV launch partners when the chip manufacturing giant starts volume production on its next-generation process node. That could mean that Nvidia’s own next-generation graphics cards will be arriving in 2020 along with the Samsung’s fancy pants new 7nm EUV production process. With AMD already set to launch both 7nm CPUs and GPUs this year – with its Zen 2 and Navi designs respectively – that might seem as though Nvidia is lagging behind on this one, but there are good reasons for Nvidia to hold off on the switch to 7nm, especially on the desktop. The first being that the 7nm node is new. Super new. Brand, spanking new. When we’re talking about the sort of complex silicon going into today’s desktop processors and graphics cards this is new territory for the 7nm lithography. And pairing a new architecture with the first flush of a new technology is fraught with danger, and it’s something that has … [Read more...] about Nvidia’s next-gen 7nm graphics cards to be built by Samsung in 2020

Not too long ago we warned of a potential impending surge in graphics card prices. Unfortunately for those looking to upgrade graphics cards or buy a new GPU, that prediction has come true, and then some. Right now is the worst time in the history of graphics cards to buy or upgrade this all-important gaming component. I've run through the list of current generation GPUs, and I've even looked at previous generation GPUs. The price changes in the past two weeks are staggering. Here's the full rundown, starting with Nvidia and then moving to AMD, from highest performing to lowest performing parts. Note that many of the cards are only showing prices from third-party resellers, as Amazon and Newegg rapidly sell out of their inventory (often at lower prices). If you're interested in buying a GPU, I'd recommend putting a "notify" alert on it and be ready to order ASAP if it comes back in stock at a reasonable price.
