PowerColor Announces the AMD Radeon Red Devil RX 590 8GB GDDR5 Graphics Card

TUL Corporation, a leading and innovative manufacturer of AMD graphic cards since 1997, has introduced the newest PowerColor Red Devil RX 590 8GB GDDR5. The new Red Devil RX 590 brings new blood to the mainstream market, performing more than 10% over the comparable priced cards, this makes a no brainer for this segment.

It is powered by AMD's newest gaming RX590 GPU built on 12 nm, offering the best 1080p performance at the highest settings with uncompromised graphic details. Red Devil RX 590 improves on efficiency, having a boost clock of 1576 MHz core clock speed which is 17% clock speed increase over the 580 at no power consumption increase.

NVIDIA Announces Quadro RTX 4000 Graphics Card

NVIDIA today introduced the Quadro RTX 4000 graphics card - the company's first midrange professional GPU powered by the NVIDIA Turing architecture and the NVIDIA RTX platform. Unveiled at the annual Autodesk University Conference in Las Vegas, the Quadro RTX 4000 puts real-time ray tracing within reach of a wider range of developers, designers and artists worldwide.

Professionals from the manufacturing, architecture, engineering and media creation industries witnessed a seismic shift in computer graphics with the launch of Turing in August. The field's greatest leap since the invention of the CUDA GPU in 2006, Turing features new RT Cores to accelerate ray tracing and next-gen Tensor Cores for AI inferencing which, together for the first time, make real-time ray tracing possible.

XFX Radeon RX 590 Fatboy Smiles For The Camera

The flood of leaked AMD Radeon RX 590 graphics cards continues with the latest one being from XFX. Sporting a new naming scheme, the XFX Radeon RX 590 Fatboy is very similar to the RX 580 GTS series. It features the same dual fan cooler used on the RX 580 GTS, which takes up roughly 2.5 slots. Even the backplate remains the same with no changes to speak of, meaning side by side you wouldn't be able to tell the difference unless you look at power delivery which is where the designs diverge. The RX 590 Fatboy utilizing an 8+6 pin design compared to the RX 580 GTS series and its single 8-pin design. In regards to display outputs that remains the same between the two with three DisplayPorts, one HDMI port, and one DVI-I port being standard.

When it comes to clock speeds the XFX RX 590 Fatboy OC+ at least according to Videocardz will come with a 1600 MHz boost clock. That is an increase of roughly 200 MHz over XFX's highest clocked RX 580. With such a high boost clock the additional 6-pin power connector is likely included for improved power delivery and depending on luck may allow for more overclocking headroom. Considering no vendor releases just one version of a graphics card it is likely that a few more variants will be available at launch. Sadly no pricing information is available as of yet.

Darren McPhee, Former Radeon Marketing Executive, Joins Intel's Discrete Graphics Division

Darren McPhee worked 12 years for ATI and AMD. When he left AMD in 2015, he was one of the company's top marketing managers. For the last three years he has worked for various companies, but the surprise has come with Intel recruiting him to occupy the position of Product Marketing Manager in its 'Discrete Graphics' group, one of the most interesting initiatives in the recent times.

This division is working hard to develop a new family of discrete graphics cards that will theoretically compete with AMD and NVIDIA solutions. Intel has been steadily growing, and in fact Intel already signed Raja Koduri, AMD GPU architect, in November 2017. This firm has been attracting more and more talent from an AMD: Koduri was followed by Jim Keller, Ryzen Architect, and Chris Hook, who led AMD's Radeon Technologies Group Marketing Departmen prior to his move to Intel. These hires certainly make it clear that Intel is taking an increasingly promising project very seriously. We will have to be patient, however, because the firm already indicated in SIGGRAPH 18 that it will have its first models ready in 2020.

G-Sync and SLI Don't Get Along: Framerate Falls If You Combine Them

Several users have complained lately about performance issues on their SLI systems, and after some discussions in the NVIDIA subreddit and on NVIDIA's forums, the conclusion seems to be clear: performance drops when SLI and G-Sync are working together. The folks over at ExtremeTech have made a good job exploring the issues and they have confirmed that frame rate falls if both features are enabled on the PC. The problem seems related to timing according to their data, but there's no clear solution yet to that issue.

The problems are huge in titles such as Rising Storm 2 (206 vs 75 fps with SLI and G-Sync enabled) and not that important on others like Witcher 3 (113 vs 98 fps). The test setup included two GTX 1080 GPUs and an Acer XB280HK monitor that supports 4K but only at 60 Hz, a perfect choice to detect whether the problem was real or not. In their tests with several games they confirmed the problem, but didn't find a defined pattern: "Turning G-Sync on and using SLI is not guaranteed to tank your frame rate. [...] Different games showed three different performance models". In Deus Ex Mankind Divided the gap appeared only on DX11 mode. In Far Cry 5, the penalty size increases as the frame rate rises, and in Hitman the results were even more confusing.

TechPowerUp GPU-Z v2.12.0 Released

TechPowerUp GPU-Z v2.12.0 released today with useful new features and several stability updates. We worked extensively on the ability of GPU-Z to detect fake NVIDIA graphics cards (i.e cards not really having the GPU advertised on the box). GPU-Z now prepends "[FAKE]" to the Graphics Card name field, and lights up with a caution triangle. This capability is forward compatible for the supported GPUs (listed in the changelog), so for example, it will be able to detect a fake RTX 2060, which in reality uses a GK106 GPU. The second big feature is the ability to extract and upload graphics card BIOS of NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2000 graphics cards. Graphics cards with multiple independent fans (each with its own speed control) are gaining popularity, and we've added the ability to read and log fan-speeds of individual fans on NVIDIA "Turing" graphics cards that support the feature, in addition to fan speed percentage monitoring.

Our feature-rich "Advanced" tab now also shows information on HDMI and DisplayPort connectors of your graphics cards. Power-draw on NVIDIA graphics cards is now reported both as a percentage of TDP and as an absolute value in Watts. Among the bugs fixed are a system hang due to Valve Anti-Cheat (VAC) kicking in when GPU-Z is running in the background; memory bandwidth reading on RTX 2080 & RTX 2080 Ti with GDDR6 memory, AMD Radeon RX 400-series GPU utilization monitoring, and improved texts for system memory usage sensors.

MSI Upcoming RTX 2070 Series Leaks, Twin Frozr is Back

After the launch of the RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti, hardware makers are getting close to the launch of their RTX 2070 graphics cards. MSI will be indeed one of them, and some leaked information in VideoCardz allows us to discover three variants of the RTX 2070 GAMING series. We will have the top of the line GAMING Z, and then the GAMING X and just GAMING 8G models. All of them will feature MSI's popular Twin Frozr 7 cooling solution, but instead of getting a black and red theme these new cards will have a black and silver finish.
The information is in fact available from MSI website, and there we can find also information about all the models available with this GPU. The lowest price one will be GeForce RTX 2070 AERO 8G and could be a good option to those who are looking to water cool their cards in the future. MSI GeForce RTX 2070 ARMOR 8G OC will have two TORX FAN 2.0 (there's also a non-OC version) , while MSI GeForce RTX 2070 DUKE will go a little further with three of those TORX Fans 2.0.

MSI Talks about NVIDIA Supply Issues, US Trade War and RTX 2080 Ti Lightning

Back on September 27th, MSI talked candidly with PConline at the MSI Gaming New Appreciation Conference, in Shanghai. Multiple MSI executives were available to answer questions regarding products, launches, and potential issues. The first question asked was about the brewing US-Chinese trade war and if it will affect prices of graphics cards and CPUs. To which, Liao Wei, Deputy General Manager of MSI Global Multimedia Business Unit, and MSI Headquarters Graphics Card Products gave an actual answer. Stating that the since NVIDIA's GPU core is handled by a TSMC in Taiwan and memory is handled by Samsung and Hynix in South Korea and the United States respectively, there is little chance of further graphics card price hikes. However CPU side prices may increase on the Intel side, however, AMD is expected to be unaffected.

Gigabyte Announces AORUS GeForce RTX 2080/Ti Xtreme Graphics Cards

Gigabyte is a little bit late to the party, but better late than never, for sure. The company has launched four new graphic cards -AORUS Geforce RTX 2080 Ti XTREME 11G, AORUS Geforce RTX 2080 Ti 11G, AORUS Geforce RTX 2080 XTREME 8G. All of them are equipped with "top-of-the-line" overclocked GPUs, and the AORUS Engine software makes it easy to control clock speeds, fan performance or power target. These cards feature the RGB three-ring light effect, WINDFORCE 3x 100mm Stack Fan, and 7 video outputs.

Those fans allow to reduce the graphics card length, but they also generate more wind pressure and therefore improve dissipation not only for the GPU but also for VRAM and MOSFET. According to Gigabyte these are the only GeForce RTX20 Series products that offer 7 video outputs: 3 HDMI, 3 DP and one USB-C for greater flexibility when connecting different monitors without any adaptors. There's a new aero-space graded PCB for these cards, that have a 12+2 Phase PCB design (RTX 2080 Xtreme) with a 16+3 phase PCB design for the RTX 2080 Ti Xtreme.

MSI Intros GeForce RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti SeaHawk X Series Graphics Cards

MSI today rolled out the SeaHawk line of liquid-cooled graphics cards based on GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and GeForce RTX 2080 graphics processors. The lineup includes two key sub-variants - SeaHawk X and SeaHawk X EK. The former features a factory-fitted all-in-one closed loop liquid cooler; while the latter features a factory-fitted full-coverage water block by EK Water Blocks, which you plumb to your own liquid cooling loop. Custom-designed for MSI, this block features a nickel-plated copper primary material, mated to an acrylic top with MSI branding all around. Both come with aluminium back-plates.

The RTX 2080 Ti SeaHawk X and SeaHawk X EK are factory-overclocked with a GPU Boost frequency of 1755 MHz (vs. 1545 MHz, or a 13.5% OC). The RTX 2080 SeaHawk X and SeaHawk X EK series, on the other hand, ship with 1860 MHz boost clocks (vs. 1710 MHz, or an 8.8% OC). The cards could attract $200-250 premiums over SEP prices.

NVIDIA's Weakness is AMD's Strength: It's Time to Regain Mid-Range Users

It won't be easy to see an AMD counterpart to NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti in the short time. Heck, it will be difficult to see any real competitors to the RTX 2000 Series anytime soon. But maybe AMD doesn't need to compete on that front. Not yet. The reason is sound and clear: RTX prices are NVIDIA's weakness, and that weakness, my fellow readers, could become AMD's biggest strength.

The prices NVIDIA and its partners are asking for RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti have been a clear discussion topic since we learnt about them. Most users have criticized those price points, even after NVIDIA explained the reasoning behind them. Those chips are bigger, more complex and more powerful than ever, so yes, costs have increased and that has to be taken into account.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Benchmarks Allegedly Leaked- Twice

Caveat emptor, take this with a grain of salt, and the usual warnings when dealing with rumors about hardware performance come to mind here foremost. That said, a Turkish YouTuber, PC Hocasi TV, put up and then quickly took back down a video going through his benchmark results for the new NVIDIA GPU flagship, the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti across a plethora of game titles. The results, which you can see by clicking to read the whole story, are not out of line but some of the game titles involve a beta stage (Battlefield 5) and an online shooter (PUBG) so there is a second grain of salt needed to season this gravy.

As it stands, put together a nice summary of the relative performance of the RTX 2080 Ti compared to the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti from last generation. Based on these results, the RTX 20T0 Ti is approximately 37.5% better than the GTX 1080 Ti as far as average FPS goes and ~30% better on minimum FPS. These are in line with expectations from hardware analysts and the timing of these results tying in to when the GPU launches does lead some credence to the numbers. Adding to this leak is yet another, this time based off a 3DMark Time Spy benchmark, which we will see past the break.

First Time Spy Benchmark of Upcoming NVIDIA RTX 2080 Graphics Card Leaks

A Time Spy benchmark score of one of NVIDIA's upcoming RTX 20-series graphics cards has come out swinging in a new leak. We say "one of NVIDIA's" because we can't say for sure which core configuration this graphics card worked on: the only effective specs we have are the 8 GB of GDDR6 memory working at 14 Gbps, which translates to either NVIDIA's RTX 2070 or RTX 2080 graphics cards. If we were of the betting type, we'd say these scores are likely from an NVIDIA RTX 2080, simply because the performance improvement over the last generation 1080 (which usually scores around the 7,300's) sits pretty at some 36% - more or less what NVIDIA has been doing with their new generation introductions.

The 10,030 points scored in Time Spy by this NVIDIA RTX graphics card brings its performance levels up to GTX 1080 Ti levels, and within spitting distance of the behemoth Titan Xp. This should put to rest questions regarding improved performance in typical (read, non-raytracing) workloads on NVIDIA's upcoming RTX series. It remains to be seen, as it comes to die size, which part of this improvement stems from actual rasterization performance improvements per core, or if this comes only from increased number of execution units (NVIDIA says it doesn't, by the way).

NVIDIA Releases First Internal Performance Benchmarks for RTX 2080 Graphics Card

NVIDIA today released their first official performance numbers for their new generation of GeForce products - particularly, the RTX 2080. The RTX 20 series of graphics cards, according to the company, offers some 50% performance improvements (on average) on architectural improvements alone, in a per-core basis. This number is then built upon with the added RTX performance of the new RT cores, which allows the RTX 2080 to increase its performance advantage over the last generation 1080 by up to 2x more - while using the new DLSS technology. PUBG, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, and Final Fantasy XV are seeing around 75 percent or more improved performance when using this tech.

NVIDIA is also touting the newfound ability to run games at 4K resolutions at over 60 FPS performance, making the RTX 2080 the card to get if that's your preferred resolution (especially if paired with one of those dazzling OLED TVs...) Of course, IQ settings aren't revealed in the slides, so there's an important piece of the puzzle still missing. But considering performance claims of NVIDIA, and comparing the achievable performance on last generation hardware, it's fair to say that these FPS scores refer to the high or highest IQ settings for each game.

Gainward Teases Reveal of New Graphics Card Products Set on August 20th

Gainward, one of NVIDIA's exclusive board partners, has a relatively small presence in the West, and are much more focused on the Eastern markets with their product lines. However, being an NVIDIA AIB, Gainwards' teases count for the ecosystem as a whole - at least when it comes to new product generation releases.

With everything lining up for a new graphics card lineup reveal from NVIDIA's part at Gamescom in the 20th of August (just next Monday), Gainwards' timer-infused tease at Weibo of "7 days to your Glaring Eyes" seems to represent a triple-fan solution in a graphics card. It remains to be seen if NVIDIA will be taking a staggered approach to its graphics cards launches as in recent times, with their Founders' Editions being the first to market, soon followed by AIB's custom designs. That, of course, doesn't prevent any of the AIBs to announce finalized designs on their products - and if Gainward is teasing a new product (as they seemingly are) then other partners certainly won't be far behind.

Intel Teases Their Upcoming Graphics Cards for 2020

Right in time for SIGGRAPH, the world's leading conference for computer graphics, the people around Raja Koduri and Chris Hook have posted a video on Twitter, which shows a teaser for their upcoming graphics cards, that are scheduled to become available in 2020.
The video is produced in a style that's typical for what Chris Hook has been releasing at AMD, too. It starts with a history lesson, praising Intel's achievements in the graphics department, and then continues to promise that in 2020, Intel discrete graphics cards "will be set free, and that's just the beginning".

In the comments for the video, Chris Hook, who left AMD to join Intel as head of marketing for their graphics department said: "Will take time and effort to be the first successful entrant into the dGPU segment in 25 years, but we have some incredible talent at Intel, and above all, a passion for discrete graphics."

You can find the video here.

It's a Matter of Thousands: Manli Denies Submission of NVIDIA GTX 2070, 2080 Graphics Cards, GA104 and GA104-400 Codenames

Yesterday, a story surfaced on how Manli corporation had seemingly spilled the beans on NVIDIA's next-gen graphics cards lineup. A submission registration appeared online where the company was registering GTX 2070, GTX 2080, and GA104 and GA104-400 codenames for upcoming products - which obviously paved the way for speculation on those being the real, next-gen NVIDIA graphics solutions, in detriment of the on-and-off GTX 1100 series.

Today, Manli has sent out a media-wide email denying that the company had anything to do with the submission, and are actively investigating how, when, and why this happened. Still, the fact remains that the submission to the Eurasian Economic Union did happen. It remains to be seen whether this is a defensive, last-ditch effort to try and control media and PR damage to an impending announcement, or just an exceedingly clever ploy from a non Manli-affiliated party.

Due to Reduced Demand, Graphics Cards Prices to Decline 20% in July - NVIDIA Postponing Next Gen Launch?

DigiTimes, citing "sources from the upstream supply chain", is reporting an expected decrease in graphics card pricing for July. This move comes as a way for suppliers to reduce the inventory previously piled in expectation of continued demand from cryptocurrency miners and gamers in general. It's the economic system at work, with its strengths and weaknesses: now that demand has waned, somewhat speculative price increases of yore are being axed by suppliers to spur demand. This also acts as a countermeasure to an eventual flow of graphics cards from ceasing-to-be miners to the second-hand market, which would further place a negative stress on retailers' products.

Alongside this expected 20% retail price drop for graphics cards, revenue estimates for major semiconductor manufacturer TSMC and its partners is being revised towards lower than previously-projected values, as demand for graphics and ASIC chips is further reduced. DigiTimes' sources say that the worldwide graphics card market now has an inventory of several million units that is being found hard to move (perhaps because the products are already ancient in the usual hardware tech timeframes), and that Nvidia has around a million GPUs still pending logistical distribution. Almost as an afterthought, DigiTimes also adds that NVIDIA has decided to postpone launch of their next-gen products (both 12 nm and then, forcibly, 7 nm) until supply returns to safe levels.

EVGA Introduces Its GeForce GTX 1050 3 GB Graphics Cards

EVGA announced the market availability of a "vanilla" GTX 1050 3 GB graphics card (the Gaming 03G) and its SuperClocked variant (the SC Gaming 03G). They both carry the same 768 CUDA cores. Clocks for the Gaming 03G are NVIDIA reference (1392 MHz base, up to 1518 MHz boost, 3 GB of 7008 MHz GDDR5 memory across a 96-bit memory bus), and the SuperClocked version brings the core clocks up to 1455MHz and 1569MHz (base and boost, respectively).

The graphics cards come in a short form factor (144.78mm x 111.15mm) - a simple, single-fan cooling solution is more than enough to cool down the GPU, which only needs PCIe power to function correctly. Display outputs are set at 1x dual-link DVI-D, 1x DisplayPort 1.4, and 1x HDMI 2.0. The Gaming 03G version is available for $159.99, while the SuperClocked version comes in at $169.99. Both feature a three-year warranty.
