Nvidia Ampere has been around for a while now, so it's about time we should start expecting budget cards to launch, like perhaps the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 – if that's indeed what it's called. This tier of graphics card is also going to finally reveal Nvidia's strategy for the low-end market. With Nvidia Turing, the RTX 2060 was the lowest-end graphics card to bear the RTX branding, with more affordable graphics cards like the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti retaining the GTX name from previous generations. So, will we be seeing the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050? Or will Nvidia put out a non-RTX card for budget gamers, something like the Nvidia GeForce GTX 2650? Only time will tell, but right now the rumors are pointing towards an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 hitting the market soon, and it could be the perfect fit for esports gamers at 1080p that don't have the cash or need for something beefier like the RTX 3060 – not that you can really buy one right now anyway. But because the rumors … [Read more...] about Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 release date, price and mobile version: what do we know?

After a month-long wait since Nvidia unveiled the GeForce RTX 20 series, we can finally bring you our performance review. As you all know by now, we have a new flagship graphics card in the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti with pricing starting at $1,000 for partner cards and $1,200 for the Founders Edition version, we're talking Titan X money here. Meanwhile the vanilla RTX 2080 is landing at $700 for partner models and $800 for the Founders Edition. Later next month we'll also get the RTX 2070 at $500 or $600 for the FE card. This means gamers are looking at somewhere between $100 and $300 more for an equivalent model from the previous generation. On top of that, the Founders Edition models carry a further $100 to $200 price premium, and just know these will be the only models in stock from time to time. Nevertheless it's worth noting that graphics card prices are down to regular levels . After a year of inflated prices due to indirect mining demand, the now two-year old GTX 1080 … [Read more...] about Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 & 2080 Ti Review
In brief: Valve’s April Steam survey is here. Last month was a good one for Nvidia, which saw another of its Ampere line, the RTX 3060, finally make an appearance. Sadly for AMD, its Radeon RX 6000 series remains absent from the results nearly six months after the first cards launched. The latest Steam survey —participation in which is optional among the platform’s users—shows no changes among the top five graphics cards. The GTX 1060 remains on top almost three and a half years since it replaced the GTX 750, followed by the GTX 1050 Ti, GTX 1650, RTX 2060, and GTX 1050. April saw the RTX 3060’s debut, proving that at least some people (0.17%) were able to grab the elusive card. The month’s largest gains (+0.22%) went to the third-place GTX 1650. Not too surprising, given that Nvidia is increasing supply of the Turing product to ease availability problems—it could top the table in the future. There were small but steady gains for the other Ampere cards; the RTX 3070 … [Read more...] about RTX 3060 enters Steam survey, still no sign of the Radeon RX 6000 series
Despite not being officially announced by Nvidia yet, the long-rumored GeForce RTX 3050 Ti and RTX 3050 mobile graphics cards have had their respective specifications leaked by Chinese PC manufacturer Lenovo. previously leaked benchmarks indicate we should expect performance somewhere between the GTX 1660 Ti Max-Q (a smaller, cut down version of the usual mobile GTX 1660 Ti used in slimmer devices) and the RTX 2060 Max-Q, making these the first graphics cards to include ray tracing below the usual 60 series, with the previous baseline being the RTX 2060.

Nvidia may be preparing to extend its new hash rate limiter across its entire portfolio of RTX 3000-series graphics cards with a new GPU refresh, an effort that could finally help alleviate the voracious demand for these cards among cryptominers and free up stock for gamers who have been unable to buy them. While we had gotten word that Nvidia was going to refresh the GPUs in the RTX 3060 to reinforce the hash rate limiter that miners had circumvented – with help from an Nvidia partner's beta driver , no less – this is the first we've heard that the limiter might be extended over the entire Ampere line of consumer graphics cards. Noted Twitter leaker kopite7kimi suggests that the GA106 GPU in the RTX 3060 might not be the only Ampere GPU that Nvidia tweaks, and as PCGamer points out, I've said before, maybe not GA106 only.For example, we would meet GA102-302/202 and GA104-302/202. https://t.co/pGghHbikbV April 15, 2021 See more The limiter could be … [Read more...] about Sorry Cryptominers, new GeForce RTX 3080s, RTX 3090s may get mining limiters
