Alphacool Presents Eiswolf 2 GPU-AIO for NVIDIA Ampere and AMD RDNA 2 GPUs

Alphacool today presents the Eiswolf 2 AIO solution (Reference design with backplate) for AMD Radeon RX 6800/6800XT/6900 and NVIDIA RTX 3080/3090 graphics cards. As with all of our AIO models, we only use copper radiators, however, for the first time, the Alphacool 360 mm NexXxoS ST30 all-copper radiator will be used in one of our GPU "all-in-one" solutions. For the fans, we now install the new Alphacool Aurora Rise 120 mm fan. The fan impresses with a max. statistical pressure of 3.17 mm/H2O and offers a max. air flow of 119.8m3/h, at a speed range of 0-2500rpm which can be controlled via PWM.

The decision to use the larger radiator in conjunction with our new fans provides a significant increase in cooling performance. The AIO is completed with the Eisblock Aurora water cooler, which actively cools all relevant components such as graphics memory and voltage converters in addition to the GPU chip. All components used (radiator, fan, cooler, DC-LT 2 pump) including connectors and hoses are part of the Alphacool custom cooling range and are therefore available separately. This means that we're not just offering a simple AIO solution here, but a real custom water cooling system (pre-assembled & pre-filled). Only the pump housing for the DC-LT 2 pump is a custom design and not available separately. Today we present only the Reference designs. In the near future, more solutions for graphics cards in custom design from various manufacturers will be available.

NVIDIA RTX Voice Now Officially Supported on Non-RTX Cards

NVIDIA should probably start thinking about removing the RTX moniker from its RTX Voice suite, the (supposedly) AI-based audio noise-cancellation software the company launched about this time last year. At the time, NVIDIA announced it as an exclusive feature for their RTX GPUs, due to their AI-processing capabilities - and that led everyone to think RTX Voice employed the in-chip Tensor cores for leveraged AI operation. However, soon enough, mods started to appear that allowed GTX graphics cards - going back at least as much as the "hot-oven Fermi" in unofficial support - and that pointed towards a CUDA-based processing solution.

It appears that NVIDIA has now decided to officially extend support for the RTX Voice software to other, non-RTX graphics cards from the latest RTX 30-cards down to their 600-series (essentially any card supported under Nvidia's 410.18 driver or newer). So if you were hoping to leverage the software and wanted to do it officially, in a pre-RTX 20-series graphics card, with no patches - now you can. You can check out our RTX Voice review, where our very own Inle declared it to be "like magic".

NVIDIA RTX 3060 Bests RTX 2060, RTX 2070 in Ashes of the Singularity Benchmark

Benchmark performance for NVIDIA's yet-unreleased RTX 3060 graphics card have already started doing the rounds - even if it's one of the currently less-representative benchmarks for actual GPU performance, Ashes of the Singularity. Videocardz has gone through the trouble of collating benchmark results from the same user that uploaded the results for this RTX 3060 graphics card, hence the 19% performance differential in favor of the RTX 3060 results compared to the same users' RTX 2060 and RTX 2070 results.

The RTX 3060 was tested in the 1080p Crazy benchmark preset. It then scored a total of 6600 points and 67.8 average framerate in the first test; the second test, which might've been run with increased power or clocks, achieved 6800 points and 69.8 FPS on average. The first test's score (so, prior to any eventual overclocking) puts the RTX 3060's results 19% above those of the RTX 2060 (which scored 5,650 points) and even achieving a 7% performance advantage over the RTX 2070's 6,166 points.

NVIDIA's Mining Performance Cap On Unreleased ZOTAC RTX 3060 Shows Results

The NVIDIA RTX 3060 isn't even released yet, but as you might've heard, cards are already doing the rounds throughout the secondhand market at ridiculous prices. And now, to sour the pot even more, one crypto enthusiast going by the name of CryptoLeo on YouTube has shown that he already has his hands on the card - and performed a quick mining test on it. The user showcases the cards' serial number, so I hope NVIDIA is reading this post so as to know exactly which distributor this graphics card came from; breaking time-to-market likely isn't to be taken lightly by the company.

The test, done without the RTX 3060's release drivers (which are still a week away), showcases the graphics card capping its own mining performance a little after the mining algorithms begin to be processed. The card, identified in the below screenshots as tagged "1", shows a decline in performance from the initial 41.5 MH/s down to 24-24 MH/s. The card tagged as "2" is a GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, which doesn't show the same performance decline (naturally). That the card exhibited this behavior sans release drivers goes to show that NVIDIA's solution is, at the very, very least, BIOS-based, and isn't a shoestring-budget driver-based solution that was haphazardly thrown in for good measure. And once again, it's a ZOTAC card in the mining spotlight. Is this a pattern?

Colorful Releases Two New RTX 3060 Ti Graphics Cards

Colorful today has added two new graphics cards to its staple of NVIDIA RTX 3060 Ti models, the iGame GeForce RTX 3060 Ti Ultra White OC and iGame GeForce RTX 3060 Ti Advanced OC. Both of them feature a triple fan cooling solution (2x 90 mm and 1x 80 mm central fan), and feature a "one click overclock" function that's manifested in a I/O panel button. Both are equally equipped with 8 GB of 14 Gbps GDDR6 memory, and both feature an I/O configuration set at 3x DisplayPort and 1x HDMI 2.0. Both also feature a 2x 8-pin power delivery subsystem.

The iGame GeForce RTX 3060 Ti Ultra White OC features a white cover and backplate (as the name implies), although there are some colored graphics in the shroud, which prevent it from being used in minimalist builds. The card features a base clock of 1,410 MHz, a Boost clock of 1,665 MHz (with the One-Key Overclock function driving it up to 1,770 MHz). The external dimensions are 315 mm length, 131.5 mm width, and 56 mm thickness. As for the iGame GeForce RTX 3060 Ti Advanced OC, it keeps all the clocks of the Ultra White OC except for the One-Key Overclock function, which drives it 30 MHz higher up to 1,800 MHz. External dimensions are 315.5 mm length, 131 mm width, and 53 mm thickness.

NVIDIA RTX 3080 Ti, Eventual SUPER Revisions Allegedly Postponed Indefinitely Amidst Supply Woes

Everyone and their mother expected NVIDIA to announce - if not a SUPER refresh to their existing graphics cards with increased memory sizes - at least the RTX 3080 Ti. That card surfaced as a planned NVIDIA counter to AMD's preemptive pricing of $999 on its RX 6900 XT graphics card (which to be fair, is in itself as abundant a card as unicorns this side of the galaxy). GamersNexus reported NVIDIA partners' comments on the indefinite postponement of the RTX 3080 Ti and possible SUPER derivatives of the RTX 30-series lineup. It's being said that NVIDIA decided (smartly, I would say) to ensure consistent supply of their existing lineup to sate demand, instead of dispersing its limited chip production across even more product lines.

This would result, I have no doubt, on NVIDIA only having even more SKUs out of stock than they currently do. Considering the market's current state of mind in regards to NVIDIA's lineup, this seems like the most sensible decision possible. TechPowerUp has in the meantime confirmed this information with NVIDIA partners themselves.

ASUS Reveals Its GeForce RTX 3060 ROG STRIX Graphics Card

ASUS today revealed their latest flagship iteration on the NVIDIA RTX 3060, the ASUS RTX 3060 ROG STRIX. the graphics card follows ASUS' tried and true ROG STRIX design with a triple-fan cooling solution (that features 0 dB technology when in light use) and an RGB strip detailing alongside the shroud. The RTX 3060 ROG STRIX features a single 8-pin power connector, palatable for this card's expected performance profile, and the company has managed to decrease the footprint of their cooling solution to a 2.7-slot design, which should be more than enough for the card's 170 W TDP.

ASUS has fitted the card with an abundance of connectors that are sure to stand the test of time: 2x HDMI 2.1, and 3x DisplayPort 1.4. ASUS expects the card to be available near the end of February, in both OC and non-OC versions. No word on pricing was available at time of writing - though it will surely be higher than NVIDIA's $329 MSRP.

Following ASUS' Lead, EVGA and ZOTAC Increase NVIDIA RTX 30-series Pricing

ASUS was the first AIC partner to announce that due to increased costs in procuring supplies and components for PC component manufacture, it would be increasing prices on its motherboards and graphics cards. That announcement from ASUS seems to have opened the floodgates on other manufacturers, as now both EVGA and ZOTAC have increased pricing for their graphics cards - specifically for NVIDIA's RTX 30-series.

EVGA took a similar approach to ASUS, and announced via its website the changes in pricing and their effective date - January 11th. The company's announcement (which you can read in full after the break) sees pricing increase at around $70 across the board of already-launched NVIDIA RTX 30-series graphics cards. The company will still honor users in the queue system for a new graphics card with the previous pricing structure, should their orders complete through April 16th.

Rumor: NVIDIA RTX 3080, 3070, 3060 Mobile Specifications Detailed

Apparently, specifications for NVIDIA's upcoming RTX 30-series mobile solutions have been made public. According to Videocardz via Notebookcheck, NVIDIA will introduce three mobile versions of their RTX 30-series graphics cards in the form of the RTX 3080, RTX 3070 and RTX 3060. Like past NVIDIA mobile solutions, these won't directly correspond, hardware-wise, to their desktop counterparts; NVIDIA has the habit of downgrading their mobile solutions' chips compared to their desktop counterparts. According to the leaked specifications, this means the mobile RTX 3080 will maker use of the company's GA-104 chip, instead of the GA-102 silicon found on desktop versions of the card.

The mobile RTX 3080 should thus feature a total of 6,144 CUDA cores, as present in the fully-enabled GA-104 chip (compare that to the 5,888 CUDA cores available on the desktop RTX 3070, and the 8,704 CUDA cores available on the RTX 3080). These CUDA cores would be clocked at up to 1.7 GHz. The memory bus should also see a cut down to 256-bit, which would allow NVIDIA to distribute as many as 4 versions of the RTX 3080 mobile: Max-Q (TGP 80-90 W), Max-P (TGP 115-150 W), with either 8 GB or 16 GB of GDDR6 memory. The RTX 3070 mobile keeps the GA-104 chip, 256-bit bus and GDDR6 memory subsystem (apparently with only 8 GB memory pool available), but further cuts down CUDA cores to 5,120 (Max-Q TGP 80-90 W, Max-P TGP 115-150 W). Finally, the RTX 3060 mobile should make use of the GA106 chip, set up with 3,072 available CUDA cores and a 192-bit memory bus across its 6 GB of GDDR6 VRAM pool (Max-Q TGP 60-70 W), Max-P (TGP 80-115 W). Expect these specs to be confirmed (or not) come January 12th.

A Christmas Miracle: 500,000 NVIDIA RTX 3080 Cards Found in Lost Shipping Container

Stock for NVIDIA's latest RTX 30-series graphics cards has been a nightmare for customers across the world, with demand far outstripping supply. This opened up a proverbial can of worms, with scalpers taking to the world wide web, casting their own nets in taking advantage of not only the pandemic (and peoples' refuge in gaming in these uncertain times), but also of said unmet demand. So it has to be nothing short of a Christmas miracle that 500,000 NVIDIA RTX 3080 graphics cards have just been found in an unmarked shipping container in South Korea. The container wasn't registered in the port authority, and was therefore left unopened and unprocessed.

The graphics cards were stored in the container absent of any proper documentation by Samsung, as early as August of this year. Jeff Fisher, vice president of NVIDIA and head of the GeForce division, said in a statement to the company's shareholders that "We've been asking Samsung for this shipment for months. They told us that she had already left the factory, but then they did not present us with any document proving that she had reached her destination". These newfound graphics cards will now be correctly processed and put into the channel.

Geeknetic.es made this as a part of the Spanish Fool's Day, which is December 28th. However, considering the current state of the RTX (and AMD RX) market, this is a nice satirical gotcha which I'll keep on TPU. Let's laugh at our misery instead of wallowing in it.

Acer Nitro Notebook Packing AMD Ryzen 7 5800H CPU, NVIDIA RTX 3080 GPU Listed for €1950

A German retailer has listed what seems to be the long-coming AMD onslaught on the premium 17.3" laptop market - this one particularly geared for gaming. Retailer ep.de listed an Acer Nitro variant which features AMD's yet-unannounced Zen 3-based Ryzen 7 5800H CPU, a 45 W high-performance part featuring 8 physical and 16 logical cores alongside Vega-class integrated graphics. Besides the high-performance AMD APU, this laptop is one of the first to be configured with a top-of-the-line NVIDIA RTX-30 series graphics card - namely, the RTX 3080, which is very likely to be a Max-Q version for heat and power consumption considerations.

The laptop further features 32 GB of 3,200 MHz DDR4 RAM, and up to 1 TB NVMe SSD disks. There are other variants with lower configurations that seem to offer only 512 GB NVMe and an NVIDIA GTX 1650 graphics card. It seems that for now, the maximum panel resolution is set at 1080p ticking at 144 Hz. The top configuration has been listed for a cool, if not calm and collected, €1950 - a high pricing for premium hardware. Of course, variations with lower-specced hardware will be priced lower. The laptop ships with a 180 W power supply, so expect this one to be a wall hugger - and understandably so. We could be looking at an onslaught of AMD-powered premium laptops for 2021, meaning that at least in that department, it will handily beat 2020. Now if only there were significant stock of these laptops...

New in our Product Range - The HEATKILLER V-VGA Water Cooler, the Latest Revolution from WATERCOOL

With the HEATKILLER V-VGA, WATERCOOL presents its latest cooler generation, suitable for the current NVIDIA RTX 3080/3090 graphics card series. As the new version number "V" already indicates, apart from the new design, a lot has also been done under the cover. The HEATKILLER V has been improved in many details. In addition to a completely new dual-layer design, the cooling structure has also been enhanced.

The cooler was designed in different versions for well-known brands such as EVGA, ZOTAC, GAINWARD and many more. The standard Heatkiller V-VGA version is designed for short manufacturers circuit boards, while the XL version was specially adapted for cards such as the Zotac Trinity or Inno3d ICHill to achieve optimum cooling performance. The HK V will be available in the next few days from selected retailers as well as directly from Watercool's online store, but with some delay.

NVIDIA RTX 30-series GA102 IR Photographs Appear, Expose Silicon Inner Workings

IR photographs are one of the best ways to take a look at the inner silicon etchings inside the world's most powerful accelerators. Of course, one could always just "shove off the top", but that would be a crime unto itself. Fritchens Fritz has pointed an IR gun at the heart of NVIDIA's GA102, the crown jewel of the RTX 30-series, and the results are an intimate look at some of the world's most powerful hardware. The 642 mm² chip showcases all of its precision-engineered resources that allow gamers to achieve (almost) 60 FPS in 4K resolution in Cyberpunk 2077, with rows upon rows of transistor building blocks mirroring NVIDIA's (representative) chip resource breakdown in the Ampere whitepaper.

The seven vertical rows showcase the GA102's Graphics Processing Clusters (GPCs) - and in each of those rows, one can count 12 Streaming Multiprocessors (SMs). Image definition goes slightly downhill from there; but if you compare side-by-side with NVIDIA's own Ampere shots, you'll certainly be able to plot the different transistor arrangements that form the Tensor, RT, and CUDA cores.
