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

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?

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

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.

NVIDIA RTX 3080, 3090 shortage could persist until next year

NVIDIA RTX 3080, 3090 shortage could persist until next year

What could be NVIDIA's biggest GPU generation could turn out to be a massive sales headache. It might very well still be its greatest, at least as far as CEO Jensen Huang is concerned, but the supply problem of its latest GeForce RTX 30-series cards could leave some PC buyers and gamers rather disappointed. Even worse, however, is the chief exec's confirmation that this problem could persist until the end of the year, which could put its holiday sales figures in danger.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 instability traced to capacitors

The GeForce RTX 3080 was expected to be NVIDIA's latest and greatest consumer graphics card so much so that it was quickly snatched up by bots when it launched. The consumers who were quick to get one, however, may now be regretting their haste. Reports about the card crashing under various conditions and heavy loads are flooding the Internet and a few tech experts and one graphics card maker have weighed in what could be the cause of this unfortunate mystery.

MINISFORUM H31G Mini PC comes with a discrete GPU and some caveats

MINISFORUM H31G Mini PC comes with a discrete GPU and some caveats

When it comes to PCs, power is most often associated with size. After all, you can't really escape the laws of physics so the more power you need, the more and bigger components you need. That said, you might not actually really need all that power and some desktops try to make a compromise in size, performance, and price. The MINISFORUM H31G Mini PC is one such example and, depending on your needs, it might actually hit the sweet spot even for some gamers.

PS5 and RTX 3080 preorder kerfuffles suggest Winter is Coming

This week prospective buyers of the Sony PlayStation 5 and the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 3080 are having a rough time. NVIDIA proper has no stock for their own graphics card, and stock's gone low or gone at 3rd-party resellers aplenty. The Sony PlayStation 5 preorder situation is a far greater mess, as Sony announced one pre-order time/date, while retailers decided they'd just go ahead and drop all at once.

AMD Radeon RX 6000 GPU can be viewed in Fortnite

The days when graphics cards were simple boring slabs of green plastic and pieces of metal are pretty much ancient history now. As more powerful graphics cards become bigger, the opportunity to give them some visual personality and flair has also opened up. More than just cold, hard numbers, the likes of AMD and NVIDIA have taken to selling new cards' design as well. And what better way to do that than to dump the upcoming Radeon RX 6000's design where many gamers are most likely to see it: in Fortnite.
