It's been a big week for Cyberpunk 2077 already, and now it seems like that week is going to end with a bang instead of a whimper.

In addition, CD Projekt Red has also released updates specifications that tell players what kind of rig they'll need in order to play with ray tracing turned on.

NVIDIA skirts Apple rules with GeForce NOW in Safari – plus big Fortnite news

NVIDIA has brought GeForce NOW to Safari, bypassing the iOS App Store - and the controversy around Apple's refusal to approve cloud gaming services - eventually giving Fortnite fans a way to get their hit as the streaming game wars escalate. GeForce NOW was mired in the same problems as Google's Stadia and Xbox Game Pass cloud gaming, after Apple argued that the iPhone and iPad apps didn't comply with its rules.

NVIDIA SHIELD TV Experience update keeps NVIDIA’s track record

NVIDIA SHIELD TV Experience update keeps NVIDIA’s track record

NVIDIA doesn't get much attention in mobile news mostly because it doesn't have a phone or even a tablet to sell. It does have a couple of Android TV devices, and, to its credit, it may be one of the best-supported Android products next to Google's own Pixel phones. It has been more low-key on updates lately but that doesn't mean it has stopped its practice. Unfortunately, the latest update, while much needed, is missing the one piece of good news owners have been dying to hear.

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.

Fortnite iPhone workaround may bypass Apple thanks to NVIDIA

For months now, Fortnite has been missing from iOS devices as a legal dispute between Apple and Epic Games slowly plays out. At this point, it's safe to say that Fortnite won't be returning to the iOS App Store anytime soon, but we could still see Fortnite return to Apple devices through other means.

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.

Included in the mix today are the AMD Radeon RX 6800, 6800 XT, and 6900 XT, with details on how they stack up VS NVIDIA's RTX 3000 GPU lineup.

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.
