Apple Silicon M1 outperforms older NVIDIA, AMD desktop GPUs in benchmarks

Apple's first-ever ARM-based Silicon, the M1, will be powering its next generation of Macs and MacBooks, some of which will be used for more than just casual computing tasks. Naturally, there are concerns about its performance versus tried and tested processors from the likes of Intel and AMD. Early CPU benchmarks already proved that the M1 can run circles around MacBooks running on recent Intel chips and now GPU benchmarks are proving Apple's claims of impressive graphics performance.

Intel Server GPUs target Android cloud gaming servers

It may have once been the king of personal computing but Intel is now seeing its kingdom being attacked on almost all fronts.

Intel is now pushing back with its own new discrete GPU platform whose latest incarnation is being put at the service of Android games on the cloud.

Apple M1 Macs will make gamers feel left out again

It's a big day in the Apple world as the company announced not just the new Macs that will run on its own ARM-based Silicon but also the Silicon itself. Naturally, the company sang the Apple M1's praises, showing off how it ran circles around even an Intel Core i7. But while those boasts included some graphics performance, Apple conveniently left out the fine detail that might leave a growing number of Mac gamers feeling a little abandoned by the transition to Apple Silicon.

AMD Radeon RX 6000 series: Benchmarks claimed VS NVIDIA RTX

AMD Big Navi is here with the AMD Radeon RX 6000 series graphics cards, and AMD's got the benchmarks to prove it.

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. The "wary" part comes thanks to supply issues with other RTX cards this year, issues that messed with the minds and pocketbooks of potential users that, now, might be relying on the RTX 3070 to fill the void left for them after the hype of the reveal and the subsequent failure to meet demand.

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. Now, however, there are signs that it may even be cutting back on at least two configurations that would have given buyers more VRAM despite slightly lower specs.

MSI RTX 3080 eBay scalping by MSI subsidiary: Who’s to blame?

An "individual sales subsidiary working under MSI" was found selling brand new MSI RTX 3080 graphics cards on eBay this week. This is bad news for the individual sales subsidiary and MSI, as these brand new RTX 3080 graphics cards are supposed to be sold by MSI direct to consumers for their original MSRP. This situation is particularly unwelcome at this moment due to the extreme difficulty gamers have had in finding the NVIDIA graphics card hardware available for sale from either NVIDIA or their partner manufacturing brands on the open market.

NVIDIA RTX 3090 runs Crysis 3 installed on its VRAM

Someone just installed and ran Crysis 3 on NVIDIA's most powerful GeForce RTX 3090 graphics card. Computer experts and gamers would probably be shaking their heads, thinking "that's not how computers work", but the joke would be on them. That's because someone literally installed the graphics-intensive 2013 game on the graphics card whopping 24GB of Video RAM and even played it in 4K and full settings without missing a beat or possibly even a framerate.
