Chromebooks with ARM CPU and NVIDIA RTX graphics might be in the works

Chromebooks with ARM CPU and NVIDIA RTX graphics might be in the works

Chromebooks have the stigma of being low-cost, low-power computers designed to cater to the limited needs of offices and schools. That's despite the existence of some models that rival high-end Windows laptops in specs and even in prices. One computing segment that Chromebooks still don't sufficiently address is gaming, but that could be changing soon, at least on the hardware side, thanks to NVIDIA's efforts to push its RTX technology to Arm processors.

Crypto crunch moves GPU sales: Beware the “used” card

Crypto crunch moves GPU sales: Beware the “used” card

This week in China you'll find a wide variety of graphics cards in auctions and direct "fire sale" type listings. It's due in a big way to recent legal crackdowns in the country by Chinese government officials on the mining and use of cryptocurrency. If you happen to be in a place where you can purchase graphics cards from newly-shuttered mining operations, you might find sales of GPU hardware for prices that seem too good to be true - because they are.

AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution takes on NVIDIA DLSS from a different angle

AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution takes on NVIDIA DLSS from a different angle

Computer hardware is getting more powerful but not everyone has access to the latest and greatest technologies. High-end graphics cards are, of course, expensive and are now even harder to find, thanks to a global chip shortage. Unlike consoles with fixed hardware, PC gamers have a variety of combinations to try out, both in hardware and game settings, to find the best compromise between quality and performance. AMD's new FidelityFX Super Resolution tech, thankfully abbreviated to FSR, claims you don't have to choose between performance and high resolutions. In fact, you don't even have to choose between AMD and NVIDIA cards if it comes down to it.

New Razer Blade 14 is the brand’s first AMD laptop

Although it may be best known for its PC gaming accessories, Razer has also long played in the mainstream PC market, particularly with its Blade line of gaming laptops. For years, however, its different models have had one thing in common other than the brand. They were all powered by Intel processors. Perhaps much to Intel's disappointment, Razer is breaking from that mold as well and is introducing the new Razer Blade 14, its first-ever gaming rig to come with an AMD processor instead.

Steam on Linux NVIDIA DLSS support coming to some Windows games

Steam on Linux NVIDIA DLSS support coming to some Windows games

Valve has long been trying to get game developers and publishers to see Linux as a serious and profitable gaming platform and not simply because it loves the open source operating system. It basically wants games to be free from their reliance on Windows and Microsoft's development frameworks and, eventually, to have them available on its own Linux-based Steam OS. Steam OS and Steam Machines have largely failed but Valve seems to still be pushing for Linux support for Windows games and its latest attempt is to get NVIDIA's fancy DLSS technology to work on some of those titles.

Apple TV now on NVIDIA SHIELD with Android TV

Apple TV was launched on NVIDIA SHIELD this week. The Apple TV app is generally only available to Google TV, the next generation in Android TV software. If you have a TV at home with Android TV and not Google TV, you almost certainly did not have the ability to use the Apple TV app and service.
