NVIDIA’s answer to RTX 30 restock hell is some familiar old GPUs

NVIDIA may not be able to keep up with GeForce RTX 30 series graphics card demand, but its stopgap fix for the frustrating shortage will involve some familiar old GPUs rather than a sudden restock of the cutting-edge chips. As anybody who has tried to upgrade their PC or outfit their new-build with an RTX 30 GPU has discovered over the past few months, getting hold of one of the prized graphics cards is about as tricky as finding a new Xbox Series X or PlayStation 5 at retail.

The viability of the game streaming business was again put on the hot seat last week when Google announced the closure of its in-house Stadia Games and Entertainment (SGE) studio. Amazon, who was undergoing a shift in leadership after Bezos announced his departure as CEO, took the opportunity to reiterate its commitment to the gaming market.

What it might not have said was that things might actually get worse before they get better, especially in the first quarter of the year.

NVIDIA just made it easier to buy the right RTX 30-series laptop

During CES 2021 last month, we received a flood of announcements for laptops that feature NVIDIA's RTX 30-series GPUs. Like the RTX 20-series before it, the 30-series will likely make for some particularly formidable gaming laptops, but with every manufacturer under the sun seemingly announcing at least one laptop for this year (and oftentimes many more), it can be difficult to make an informed choice about which is the best laptop for the money.
