NVIDIA "Ada Lovelace" Architecture Designed for N5, GeForce Returns to TSMC

NVIDIA's upcoming "Ada Lovelace" architecture, both for compute and graphics, is reportedly being designed for the 5 nanometer silicon fabrication node by TSMC. This marks NVIDIA's return to the Taiwanese foundry after its brief excursion to Samsung, with the 8 nm "Ampere" graphics architecture. "Ampere" compute dies continue to be built on TSMC 7 nm nodes. NVIDIA is looking to double the compute performance on its next-generation GPUs, with throughput approaching 70 TFLOP/s, from a numeric near-doubling in CUDA cores, generation-over-generation. These will also be run at clock speeds above 2 GHz. One can expect "Ada Lovelace" only by 2022, as TSMC N5 matures.

NVIDIA Brings RTX and DLSS to Arm Platform

NVIDIA at GDC dropped a major hint at where it wants to take PC gaming post the Arm acquisition. The company is demonstrating its RTX real-time raytracing technology, and the DLSS performance enhancement, on an Arm processor by MediaTek. To the PC, this means NVIDIA is laying the foundations of gaming in the post-x86 world where it holds Arm IP; foundations that were dug up by Apple and its mighty M1 chip, based on Arm CPU technology.

Making this unequivocal, was MediaTek. "RTX is the most groundbreaking technology to come to PC gaming in the last two decades," said PC Tseng, general manager of MediaTek's Intelligent Multimedia Business Unit."MediaTek and NVIDIA are laying the foundation for a new category of Arm-based high-performance PCs." The Taiwan-based Arm SoC major has developed a new Arm-based PC processor called Kompanio 1200, which it hopes will power PC platforms much like the Apple M1 or the Qualcomm Compute Platforms.

Hydrogen Series Makes a Comeback, MSI Preparing GeForce RTX 3090 Model

MSI's iconic Hydrogen series of graphics cards are making a comeback. According to the latest Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) listings, we have information about the latest addition to MSI's lineup of graphics cards. For starters, MSI has filled EEC reports about its upcoming GeForce RTX 3060 LHR variants, which feature an updated GA106-302 GPU. The new cards will carry the LHR name as a part of the official product name, to be easily separated from non-LHR variants, so buyers know exactly what model they are getting.

Additionally, MSI is seemingly making a comeback of its Hydrogen series. Hydrogen lineup used to be popular with GeForce GTX 580 Hydrogen card, which delivered awesome overclocking performance enabled by a water block strapped onto the card. If MSI brings the series back, it will come in the form of the GeForce RTX 3090 Hydrogen model, which could represent the highest-end RTX 3090 design from the company. It remains to be seen what MSI does with it, and if we are getting it at all, so we have to wait for more information.

MANLI Launches GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Graphics Cards Lineup

Manli Technology Group, Limited is proud to announce the Manli GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Gallardo. It will be based on the NVIDIA Ampere architecture. Building upon RTX, the second-generation of GPUs will feature new RT Cores, Tensor Cores, and streaming multiprocessors. The RT and Tensor Cores both have double the throughput as before. There are 10,240 CUDA cores onboard powering the 3080 Ti Gallardo. It also possesses 12 GB of GDDR6X memory, and memory speeds of up to 19 Gbps. Boost clock has been increased to 1680 MHz. The performance makes the 3080 Ti Gallardo a legitimate challenger as a top of the class graphics card.

The 3080 Ti Gallardo comes with a familiar triple fan front plate, in a slightly more sophisticated shade of gray. There are also four apertures on the shroud for the lighting elements below. The LEDs are software-controllable. The aluminium back plate lends structural rigidity to the 3-slot GPU. Six copper composite heat pipes and segmented heat sink design help to effectively dissipate heat. A-acceleration will be greatly empowered by the onboard technology, and this inspired the packaging design. The front features a colorful explosion of connections representing the unlocked potential the new GPUs provides.

Graphics Card Prices in Germany Fall to the Lowest Point Since February

The German media outlet, 3D Center, has today published an updated report for July, measuring graphics card pricing in Germany and Austria, showing some pretty interesting results. The report is only measuring the pricing index of these two countries and their retailers, so it does not apply to other regions. An interesting discovery is that GPU prices have now hit the lowest point since February of this year when the sharp price incline started. At the time of reporting, GPU prices are exaggerated by around 53% over the MSRP listed prices. Not only did the prices drop, but the supply of GPUs like AMD Radeon RX 6800, Radeon RX 6800 XT, and the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti became much better, as consumers can get their hands on these now.

When looking at the graph below, note that MSRP is listed as 100%, and the percentage shown is the increase over that MSRP. When it comes to complete price reduction to the MSRP, 3D Center expects it to happen in 3-4 weeks possibly. If current data is to be believed, MSRP is slowly decreasing and supply is increasing rapidly. For more details and per-card pricing situation, head over to 3D Center website here. Here is an important statement from 3D Center about the current situation:
3D Center (translated from German)Of course, this means that current street prices for graphics cards are (mostly) still exaggerated - and above all that this is the worst possible time to buy a graphics card. Because the (now clearly verifiable) tendency points to clearly lower graphics card prices in the next few weeks, with a similar pace, street prices at list price level could be in sight in 3-4 weeks. It is possible that there will be a certain braking effect in the downward price movement beforehand - but at least the way up to that point should definitely be taken with you. Apparently the delivery quantities are currently sufficient, maybe the need is a bit lower because of the summer times (and no longer available on the part of the crypto miners)so that retailers receive more cards than they sell. Since the retailers usually bought their cards from the distributors at an exaggerated price, the big game is now about who can get rid of the expensive stock goods in time to make a profit at all in the face of constantly falling sales prices.

TechPowerUp NVCleanstall 1.10.0 Released

TechPowerUp today released the latest version of NVCleanstall, our handy, lightweight utility that lets you customize your NVIDIA drivers installation to a much greater degree than the "Custom" install option in the NVIDIA Installer, letting you toggle components and features you didn't even know exist. The latest version 1.10.0 introduces several updates. For starters, it fixes ShadowPlay not working (even though selected), due to a missing reference to NvModuleTracker. We've introduced an additional driver signing mode that's compatible with EasyAntiCheat. NVCleanstall now discards the generated private key once the signature rebuild is complete, for additional security.

We've introduced a feature that lets you create a self-contained EXE installer with the installation options you've selected. The option to disable NVContainer has been introduced, however, this may break GeForce Experience, and removes NVIDIA's Desktop context menu. You can configure MSI (message-signaled-interrupt) CPU selection and priority. NVCleanstall also makes sure MSI only gets activated on NVIDIA GPU devices. An option has been added letting you disable HDCP. The app now warns you that UWP apps can't be installed in Safe Mode, if you request the Control Panel app while running in Safe Mode. The app also warns about installation of GeForce Experience in Safe Mode. Both these limitations are due to Safe Mode, not NVCleanstall. When customizing your install, you can now also provide hooks to run programs before and after installation. Grab NVCleanstall from the link below.

NVIDIA Announces DOOM Eternal GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Limited Edition Demon Slayer Bundle

As most of the DOOM Eternal fans are informed, on June 29th, the latest installment in the DOOM series of games, DOOM Eternal, will be receiving a huge upgrade coming to all PC gamers. For the first time, PC players will get to experience NVIDIA's best pieces of technology, coming in a form of raytracing and NVIDIA Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS). To celebrate that, the folks over at Bethesda Softworks and id Software have partnered with NVIDIA to launch a limited edition DOOM Eternal bundle. Called the "DOOM Eternal GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Limited Edition Demon Slayer Bundle", it will be a very scarce bundle made only in 300 copies.

Containing NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 3080 Ti graphics card, the bundle is all about performance. However, what makes it special and different from buying a regular card is that it includes some additional products. For starters, the bundle includes Titanium Slayer Collectible mini-figure with matching aesthetics of the GPU, making it a real collectible item. Next up is a Titanium DOOM Eternal-GeForce RTX t-shirt, and an exclusive "DOOM Eternal: The Ancient Gods" oversized 15.75-inch x 35.44-inch mouse pad. Additionally, a $100 Bethesda Store credit and DOOM Eternal Deluxe Edition game code is included as well. Together, it forms a bundle that is limited to 300 pieces and costs 1450 USD. To join the raffle to purchase this bundle, you can enter here for North America, and here for Europe. Unfortunately, people from other regions can not enter. The raffle starts today, June 23, 2021, 5:00 AM (MST), and ends on July 7, 2021, 11:59 PM (MST). Winners will be announced on July 8th.

MSI Pledges to Solve Graphics Card Shortages Single-Handedly... Thanks to the GeForce GT 730?

This just goes to show exactly how starved the market is for graphics cards - that the puny GeForce GT 730, from seven years ago, is being relaunched by a graphics card company. MSI might be oddballing the market here, since we haven't seen any other brand offering this particular graphics card. Of course, this won't solve the gaming graphics card shortage - this is a product that's meant for users that don't have a GPU output on their CPU and need to have a discrete solution.

The GT730 may have been revived partly due to its usage of DDR3 VRAM instead of the now ubiquitous GDDR6 - the pricing pf which is bound to increase, as we've seen with current ridiculous levels of demand. The GT 730 packs 384 CUDA cores and features a 902 MHz boost clock and 2 GB of DDR3 memory operating at 1,600 MHz across a 64-bit memory interface. The GT 730 sips only 23 W of power, meaning that it doesn't need any power delivery outside that of the PCIe port - and aiding in the card's passive cooling. The fact that this is a Kepler card - and the fact that NVIDIA has announced end of support for Kepler cards with the release of the GeForce R470 drivers - should actually have no impact on its preferred usage on today's technology landscape.

NVIDIA Officially Teases RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3070 Ti

Months of speculation can now start to come to an end, with NVIDIA themselves officially teasing the soon-to-be-released RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3070 Ti graphics cards. These come in to supplant NVIDIA's previous category leaders RTX 3080 and RTX 3070, updating and increasing their performance so as to better compete with AMD's RDNA2-powered RX 6900 XT and RX 6800 XT. NVIDIA starting to tease these releases now coincides with the COMPUTEX 2021 keynote event, scheduled for next week.

The RTX 3080 Ti will be powered by the Ampere GA102-225 GPU (10,240 active CUDA cores), paired with 12 GB of GDDR6X memory (an increase from the RTX 3080's 10 GB).

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3070 Ti are thus expected to launch in early June. Reviews for the RTX 3080 Ti are to go live on June 3rd, with the product launch coming on June 4th. The RTX 3070 Ti will launch a week later on June 10th.

NVIDIA to End "Kepler" Support with R470 Drivers, 9 Years After Release: Support Roadmap

NVIDIA is planning to stop releasing driver updates to the "Kepler" generation of GPUs with the R470 driver series, according to a company driver support roadmap. Updated Software Support Matrix tables for datacenter GPUs, reveal, that the R470 drivers, released in 2021, will be the final driver updates to the "Kepler" architecture, completing 9 (!) years of driver updates since the architecture's 2012 debut. Support for the older "Fermi" ended with R390. A roadmap diagram also explains the various branches under which NVIDIA drivers are developed and released.

Although the roadmap predominantly refers to data-center GPUs, it's very likely that support for the GeForce GTX 600 "Kepler" series will end with GeForce R470 drivers, too, if not sooner. As of this writing, the current GeForce R465 series drivers do support GTX 600 series "Kepler," even if not all day-one game optimizations are applied all the way back to this series.

MSI Confirms GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3070 Ti SUPRIM Series

The marketing slides for MSI's upcoming SUPRIM series feature the unreleased RTX 3070 Ti and RTX 3080 Ti graphics cards which are set to be announced by NVIDIA later this month. The slides confirm that the RTX 3080 Ti will include 12 GB memory while the RTX 3070 Ti will include 8 GB memory and that both cards will feature the same PCB design as their non-Ti variants. MSI is planning to release two RTX 3080 Ti model with the RTX 3080 Ti SUPRIM 12G and the RTX 3080 Ti SUPRIM X 12G which was recently found for sale at a computer store in the UAE for 3500 USD. MSI also plans to release two variants of the RTX 3070 Ti with the RTX 3070 Ti SUPRIM 8G and RTX 3070 Ti SUPRIM X 8G, we are still unsure about the specific variants between the versions but we expect to be a similar boost clock increase as found on existing SUPRIM X models.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Modded to Support 22 GB of GDDR6 Memory

Have you ever wondered if your graphics card could pack just a little bit more VRAM than it is advertised to come with? Well, if you have some spare time and some awesome soldering skills, you could find out yourself by placing higher-capacity VRAM chips in place of the standard memory. That is exactly what VIK-on, a hardware modder from Russia, has done with his graphics cards. Before, VIK-on modded the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 to support 16 GB of GDDR6 memory and modded NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 3070 to also support 16 GB of GDDR6 memory. Today, VIK-on has done it again and the modder has tested his skills by proving that it is possible to install 22 GB of GDDR6 memory on the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti graphics card.

The modder has taken a broken NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti GPU that was in very bad condition. He had to re-solder the GPU and fix some broken PCB traces. Finally, after that, he tried to install more VRAM than the card came with in the first place. The TU102 SKU is capable of handling up to 48 GB of VRAM, as seen with Quadro RTX 8000 GPU. However, the problem would be firmware support. VIK-on used a strap mod, leading the GPU BIOS to believe that there is much more memory present compared to the stock version, and the card managed to boot. However, some screen flickering was present and it had stability issues, so the mod isn't very successful.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti GA102-225 GPU Pictured and Detailed

The launch of NVIDIA's upcoming GeForce RTX 3080 Ti graphics card is upon us. The number of rumors circulating the web is getting greater and we have just received die pictures of the GA102 silicon and the specification of the specific SKU. Sources over at VideoCardz have provided the website with the first die picture of GA102-225 silicon, which powers the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti graphics card. Pictured below, it doesn't appear much different compared to the GA102-300 SKU found inside the RTX 3090 card, with the only obvious differentiator being the SKU ID. However, the difference only appears under the hood, with the GA102-225 SKU having 10240 CUDA cores instead of 10752 CUDA cores found inside GA102-300 of RTX 3090.

Paired with 12 GB of GDDR6X memory on a 384-bit bus, the memory will have run around 19 Gbps speeds. That will result in a bandwidth of 912 GB/s. If you are wondering about the performance of the card, it should remain within a few percent of its bigger brother RTX 3090. We have the first leak showing Ethereum mining performance and the GA102-225 silicon achieved a mining hash rate of 118.9 Mh/s with some tuning. The memory was overclocked to 21.5 Gbps, while the GPU TDP was limited to 278 Watts. The leak shows that the card has managed to achieve a 1365 MHz base and 1665 MHz boost frequency. While we don't have the exact launch date, the supposed MSRP will be anywhere from $999 to $1099, assuming you can get it at all at any price.

Lenovo Teases NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 and RTX 3050 Ti Clock Speeds and TGP

NVIDIA is preparing the launch of an entry-level graphics card based on the Ampere architecture, sometimes later in the year, with possible dates being this or the following quarter. The GeForce RTX 3050 and RTX 3050 Ti are supposed to be the slowest SKUs in the whole Ampere lineup, representing the least expensive choice from the entire generation. However, we are wondering what the cards will look like and what are some design choices NVIDIA will introduce to these SKUs. Lenovo, the maker of the popular various kinds of laptops, has accidentally listed these exact SKUs in the specification section of its Legion gaming laptop.

The GPUs in question are NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 and RTX 3050 Ti mobile edition SKUs, probably based on the GA107 GPU SKU. Both versions are equipped with 4 GB of GDDR6 memory running on a 128-bit bus. The regular GeForce RTX 3050 SKU is configurable from a TGP of just 60 to 80 Watts. NVIDIA has a Dynamic Boost technology that will pump that by additional 15 Watts and max it out at 95 Watt SKU, which this laptop uses. The maximum boost clock frequency of these cards is 1695 MHz and 1740 MHz, for the RTX 3050 Ti and RTX 3050 GPUs respectively.
