I Can’t Believe Someone is Going to Spend Over £4,000 on This Graphics Card

There are a lot of people hyped for a videogame that hasn’t even come out yet. Some are so hyped that they’re willing to part with obscene amounts of money for a limited edition RTX 2080 Ti to show their super fandom. There are a bunch of Ebay auctions going on at the moment for Cyberpunk 2077 editions of the RTX 2080 Ti, the same limited edition cards that were given away for free to 77 fans back in February of this year. This one is currently going for $5,100 (£4,123), and like the majority of people selling their limited edition 2080 Ti GPUs, this individual won the graphics card. For free. And they want to get rid of it because, “This card is worth more than my entire current PC setup, even at its lowest, so not much point in me using it unfortunately.” The seller is candid about why they want to sell this GPU that they got and how they got it, which I appreciate, but I can’t believe people think it’s worth that much.

All the Laptops Packing the New CPUs and GPUs from Intel and Nvidia to Drool Over Right Now

Today, Intel and Nvidia announced a new lineup of chips including the long-awaited 10th-gen Core mobile processors and RTX 2070 Super and 2080 Super mobile GPUs. But when it comes to laptop components like these, they aren’t all that useful until someone puts them into systems you can actually buy. Here’s a roundup of the upcoming notebooks that will be the first to get all that powerful new tech. Read More >>

Nvidia is Finally Promising Ray Tracing Laptops for Sub-£1,000, But Still No RTX 2060 Super

When RTX Super graphics cards arrived for desktops, they provided a great ‘middle-option’ for people who wanted to get the most frames for their budget. The RTX 2060 Super, in particular, kind of made the RTX 2070 obsolete, not because the hardware itself was outdated, but because the RTX 2060 Super had the same amount of power at a cheaper price. It was, and still is, the best ‘bang for your buck’ option with ray tracing when it comes to desktop GPUs. But don’t expect to see an RTX 2060 Super as part of Nvidia’s latest mobile GPU lineup.

This Is Intel’s Graphics Card

Intel’s first graphics card in years, the Intel DG1, is coming later this year. Announced earlier this week at CES, here’s everything we’ve learned about the DG1, its architecture, Xe, and Intel’s plans to pair it with its next generation of CPUs, Tiger Lake. Read More >>

CES 2020: AMD Finally Seems Serious About Laptops

Since AMD launched Ryzen back in 2017, there’s been a constant refrain from AMD and press alike: the company is going to challenge Intel in the CPU space and help drive down prices and increase innovation. With the announcement of the Ryzen 4000 mobile series, it feels like AMD is finally – finally! – taking on Intel. “It’s the best mobile processor ever built,” claimed AMD CEO Lisa Su at today’s press conference in Las Vegas.

AMD’s Next Big Graphics Card Sure Sounds Like It Will Be Cheap and Powerful

While there’s no pricing available right now, AMD’s new Radeon RX 5500 graphics card certainly sounds like it will be both cheap and powerful. Which isn’t a shock – AMD’s modus operandi at this point is releasing products just a little more powerful than the competition but a whole lot less expensive. But if we believe AMD’s benchmarks, the RX 5500 is going to present an even more compelling value proposition. Read More >>

A Last Minute Price Drop Makes AMD’s New Graphics Cards a Solid Deal

The release of AMD’s latest GPUs should have been exciting. At E3 in June, the company announced the Radeon 5700 and 5700XT, and according to AMD, they would often be faster than Nvidia’s rival RTX 2060 (£299.99) and 2070 (£398.99), but for just £20 to £40 more than Nvidia’s offerings. It was a notable about-face from AMD’s previous pricing strategy of undercutting Nvidia – as if the company felt it could compete on even ground. Read More >>

If You Just Bought an Nvidia RTX 2060, You Should Be Really Pissed Off

When the Nvidia RTX 2060 GPU came out back in January, we marvelled at its price (nearly twice its predecessors) and respected its performance (good but nothing spectacular), and if you decided to buy it, I am so sorry. Because today the Nvidia RTX 2060 Super GPU starts shipping and it’s so much better you’ll immediately have buyer’s remorse. Super indeed. Read More >>

Now Is a Really Good Time to Buy a New GPU

If you’ve been thinking of a graphics upgrade, now is the perfect time to pull the trigger: Fresh new GPUs from Nvidia and AMD promise a lot of bang for not much buck, there’s downward pressure on prices across the board as existing hardware gets older, and we won’t see any new launches for several months (think the summer or later).

CES 2019: AMD Has a New Very Fancy GPU

Nvidia’s Beastly New 20-Series RTX GPUs Claim up to 6X Performance

All Signs Point to a Late August Release for Nvidia’s New GTX 1180 GPU

Even though Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang told journalists at Computex that new GPUs wouldn’t be available for “a long time,” new rumours and leaks indicate that the upcoming Nvidia GTX 1180 could get announced much sooner, possibly as early as late August at Gamescom in Germany. Read More >>

Nvidia CEO Says New GPUs Won’t Be Available for a ‘Long Time’

People thinking about upgrading or building new gaming PCs have had a rough six months. First, there was the cryptocurrency boom, which caused graphics cards to sell for double or triple their MSRP. Then, just as soon as GPU prices began to fall, the price of RAM became an issue, with SSDs threatening to do the same over the next few months. Read More >>

AMD’s Vega Graphics Cards Could Kick Off a War

Every nerd loves a good tech war: Windows vs Mac, Apple vs Android, Intel vs AMD. They give us something to armchair argue about over beers with friends—or to rant over in the comments of illustrious tech blogs. After spending the weekend playing with AMD’s new Vega 64 and Vega 56 graphics cards I think I can safely say an old tech war is back on—even if AMD’s latest salvo feels paltry. Nvidia might be leading the discrete graphics card industry, but AMD’s two newest cards are cheap and fast enough to finally compete. And that can only mean good things for PC users. Read More >>

If You Don’t Think You Need a Standalone Graphics Card, This Sub-£100 GPU Will Change Your Mind

For nearly a decade, common sense has dictated that most people don’t need a standalone graphics card in their computer. Gamers need them to make rich titles like Rise of the Tomb Raider hum, and some professionals, like video editors and 3D designers, need them to take the pain out of rendering huge multimedia files. For everyone else, a video card has been treated more like a luxury item than a necessary computer component. But AMD’s $80 (UK price TBA, but who are we kidding it'll probably be £80) Radeon RX 550, a graphics card that costs a bit less than two brand new games you’ll render on it, is such a good value that it might make you rethink the notion that a graphics card is a splurge you should skip.
