NVIDIA GTX 1050 3GB is an unexpected new budget option

NVIDIA GTX 1050 3GB is an unexpected new budget option

Despite the growing threat from AMD's Radeon Vega, NVIDIA continues to enjoy a period of popularity in no small part thanks to its aggressive push in the machine learning market. Of course it hasn't forgotten about regular consumers and, in fact, has a new graphics card for them. That said, there is nothing really groundbreaking with the new GTX 1050 3GB. In fact, there's nothing entirely new about it either. It's a surprising new low-end card that comes at a time when NVIDIA is just about to wrap up its Ge-Force 10 chapter.

AMD Ryzen Pro now comes with built-in Radeon Vega graphics

AMD Ryzen Pro now comes with built-in Radeon Vega graphics

Onboard graphics chips have earned a not so good reputation for being near useless beyond basic display capabilities. That reputation is partly thanks to Intel who, until recently, hasn't exactly given its built-in GPUs much love. AMD, in contrast, is playing up its Radeon property, acquired from old NVIDIA rival ATI, to boost both its images and its graphics chops. It is putting those chops to work on the second gen Ryzen PRO processors for notebooks and desktops. And this time, AMD made sure it has some OEMs to cheer it on.

Cut and Paste Emoji: Google Gun goes Watergun, a short history

Cut and Paste Emoji: Google Gun goes Watergun, a short history

Today Google bent the knee to the Emoji overlords, changing their people-killing-pistol into a lovely classic water gun. In the past, Google was seen as a bastion of gun-related freedom, keeping their 6-shooter at their side while the WEAK companies - only Apple, that is /s - went from gun to water gun. But let's not get too excited about how the world runs its typed-images databanks, shall we?

Adobe Creative Cloud: 2 years later, I begrudgingly submit

Adobe Creative Cloud: 2 years later, I begrudgingly submit

I use Photoshop almost every day of my life, and for the past two years, I've used Adobe Creative Cloud. When the cloud services for the whole Adobe app suite were first announced, I had reservations. Partially because I'd been using my very very old copy of Photoshop from a half-decade ago and it hadn't caused me any major trouble until then. Partially because I didn't realize how much I'd use Adobe apps if they were available in the way the company made them available with Adobe Creative Cloud.

AMD Ryzen with built-in Vega graphics available now

AMD Ryzen with built-in Vega graphics available now

For a long while, Intel has remained practically unchallenged on desktops and especially on laptops and tablets for a couple of reasons. One of those was because Intel’s processors came with integrated GPUs that deliver graphics functionality right out of the box, without having to invest in a discrete card unless absolutely necessary. Now, however, it has gotten some real competition. AMD has been trying to gnaw at Intel’s share of the market on servers and desktops and now it completes the picture with its first Ryzen processors that include their very own integrated Vega GPU in a single chip.

Lenovo Thunderbolt 3 Graphics Dock runs Windows Mixed Reality

Lenovo Thunderbolt 3 Graphics Dock runs Windows Mixed Reality

Laptops are getting thinner and thinner, not to mention sometimes converting into tablets. But the price of portability is performance, at the very least graphics performance. There are, of course, a new breed of computing accessories that deliver added graphics processing power via Thunderbolt 3 but those are heavy in both price and form. Enter the Lenovo Thunderbolt 3 Graphics Dock somewhat quietly revealed at CES 2013. No larger than a laptop, this graphics card enclosure claims it’s powerful enough to even run Windows Mixed Reality at 90 Hz rates. But, of course, there’s always a catch.
