NVIDIA skirts Apple rules with GeForce NOW in Safari – plus big Fortnite news

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Review

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Review

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 was released to a wary consumer public in late 2020. Here it was, the least expensive of the RTX 30 graphics cards from NVIDIA, ready to roll with power that out-performed its predecessors in almost every way, available at approximately $500 USD.

NVIDIA RTX 3080 20GB, RTX 3070 16GB may have been scrapped

The GeForce RTX 3000 series is supposed to be NVIDIA's latest and greatest and while it may still end up like that next year, for now, it's starting to become the company's embarrassment. The popularity of the cards, perhaps partly thanks to aggressive and successful marketing, has created a demand that NVIDIA is unable to quickly supply.

Chromebook gaming gets a bigger push with Google Play premium section

Chromebooks started out as affordable low-powered cloud-centric laptops designed more for basic school and office work.
