Intel Iris Xe MAX discrete GPU launched for laptops

Intel may have the lion's share of the PC desktop and laptop CPU market, at least for now, but it has struggled to gain any foothold in the graphics sector of the industry. It has always been touting its Iris graphics technologies and while they have definitely improved over the years, they still mostly fall short compared to those with a discrete graphics card, especially on desktops. Laptops, on the other hand, offer an opportunity for Intel to break through and that is exactly what its new Iris Xe MAX discrete GPUs promise for thin and light laptops.

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.

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.

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.
