Unreleased MSI GeForce RTX 20-series EVOKE Card Teased

In our coverage of the Creator 400M E-ATX case, one of the stock images caught our eye - an unreleased GeForce RTX 20-series graphics card from the EVOKE family of products by MSI targeted at creators. This card distinctly features the champagne-gold color scheme and matte finish of the company's first EVOKE graphics card based on the Radeon RX 5700 XT; has distinct "GeForce RTX" badging on top, and a chunky triple-slot cooling solution that's so heavy that MSI included a support brace with the card. The card pulls power from a combination of 8-pin and 6-pin PCIe power connectors, and the GPU under the hood could be anything from an RTX 2070 Super, to an RTX 2080 Super, or even an RTX 2080 Ti (going by the single NVLINK finger). If we were to harbor a guess, it features two large fans venting onto a split aluminium fin-stack heatsink.

MSI Setting Up a Gaming Desktop Build-to-Order Production Line in the US

MSI is reportedly setting up a build-to-order desktop PC production line in the U.S. With an online storefront taking orders, this unit will assemble gaming desktops from MSI components imported from Taiwan and China. The decision to set up a pre-built unit in the US may have been influenced by U.S. import tariff regimes that favor importing components. MSI will label the finished products "MIA" (short for "Made in America,") a marketing name that isn't strictly intended to convey the "Made in the USA" tagline used by American manufacturers.

The first MIA gaming desktops will be four variants of Aegis, which combines 10th Gen Intel Core processors with NVIDIA GeForce RTX 20-series GPUs. Options include the Core i9-10900K, i7-10700, and i5-10400F; along with GPU options spanning from RTX 2080 Super thru GTX 1660 Super, with prices ranging between USD $799 through $1,699. MSI's component portfolio spans motherboards, graphics cards, coolers, cases, coolers, and gaming peripherals.

MSI Rolls Out MEG Infinite X 10th and MAG Infinite S Gaming Desktops

MSI expanded its lineup of gaming desktops to be refreshed with 10th generation Intel Core processors, with the high-end MEG Infinite X 10th, MAG Infinite S, and MAG Infinite 10th. The company had, earlier this week, announced the refreshed Codex R and MEG Trident X with the new chips. The new MEG Infinite X features Intel's new flagship Core i9-10900K 10-core processor, paired with an Intel Z490 chipset motherboard, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Super graphics, and empty memory- and storage- options. You add your own memory - up to 128 GB of dual-channel DDR4-2933 across four DIMM slots; and your own storage - two M.2-2280 NVMe PCIe slots, two 2.5-inch SATA, and one 3.5-inch SATA drive bays. The MAG Infinite S and MAG Infinite 10th share the same chassis, but use Core i7-10700 8-core processors, and GeForce RTX 2060 graphics. The company didn't reveal pricing.

Schenker Announces XMG Ultra Laptop Featuring up to Intel Core i9-10900K and up to NVIDIA RTX 2080 SUPER

Schenker today announced the release of their XMG Ultra laptops, which have been purpose/built as desktop alternatives. This means there are no limitations on hardware, and that portability or battery life aren't crucial factors - power is. To that effect, the XMG Ultra launches with a Z490/based motherboard and support for up to a ten-core Intel Core i9-10900K (the Core i7-10700K, with 8 cores, and the Core i7-10600K, with six cores, are also available). You can pair these CPUs with NVIDIA's RTX 2060 SUPER, 2070 SUPER, or 2080 SUPER for close to ultimate performance when it comes to available hardware. You can configure your XMG Ultra with up to 128 GB of system RAM.

Monitor options include a 17,3" 1080p 240 Hz, G-Sync panel, or an Ultra HD G-Sync panel with the same diagonal. The XMG Ultra's call to fame is that it is the first announced laptop with a 10-core Intel solution. And, since you'd be hard pressed to find an AMD offering that packs a comparable CPU with these very same graphics solutions (since OEMs, for some reason, have maxed out AMD CPU + NVIDIA GPU combos with up an RTX 2070 non-SUPER graphics card), this may be your best bet at getting a decent CPU paired with maximum mobile GPU power. Bear in mind that a pretty standard configuration will, however, set you back some €2,799.

GALAX Extends Pink Edition Treatment to Even RTX 2080 Super

In a quick follow-up to our story from yesterday about the GALAX GeForce RTX 2070 Super EX Pink Edition graphics card, we are learning that the company is ready with a GeForce RTX 2080 Super graphics card based on the same board design. Bearing the model number "28ISL6MD71PE," the card is a costmetic variant of the company's RTX 2080 Super EX graphics card, featuring a bubblegum pink paintjob on the cooler shroud and back-plate. The PCB, although of the same design as the EX (1-click OC), is now fully white, like the HOF series. The RGB LED fans glow hot-pink out of the box. The Pink Edition card ships with factory-overclocked speeds of 1845 MHz GPU Boost (vs. 1815 MHz reference), and its software-based 1-click OC feature enables 1860 MHz boost frequencies. The memory is untouched, at 15.5 Gbps (GDDR6-effective).

The GeForce RTX 2080 Super maxes out the 12 nm "TU104" silicon, featuring 3,072 "Turing" CUDA cores, 192 TMUs, 64 ROPs, and a 256-bit wide GDDR6 memory interface holding 8 GB of memory. Much like its RTX 2070 Super sibling, this card pulls power from a combination of 8-pin and 6-pin PCIe power connectors; while its display outputs include three DisplayPorts and one HDMI. Expect an identical product to be launched under the KFA2 brand in certain markets. The company didn't reveal pricing.

ASUS Readies ROG Strix GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER White Edition

Back in November 2019, ASUS released a special "White Edition" variant of its ROG Strix RTX 2080 Ti graphics card. The company is now extending the whitewash to the RTX 2080 SUPER. The new ROG Strix GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER White Edition retains the PCB design of the original black ROG Strix card, but extends matte white finish to its cooler shroud, the three Axial-Tech fans, the cooler's base-plate, and the back-plate. The company hasn't finalized clock-speeds, but if the RTX 2080 Ti White Edition is anything to go by, the new card could be clocked silghtly higher than the original ROG Strix RTX 2080 SUPER O8G, which ticks at 1650 MHz base and 1860 MHz GPU Boost, with 15.5 Gbps (GDDR6-effective) memory. Based on the "TU104" silicon, the RTX 2080 SUPER offers 3,072 CUDA cores, 384 tensor cores, 48 RT cores, 192 TMUs, and 64 ROPs.

Mini PCs for Creators, NUC Rivals, AMD-powered ZBOXes: ZOTAC at CES

ZOTAC isn't just a graphics card major, but over the years developed a thriving lineup of compact desktops, mini PCs, and compact gaming desktops. The big buzzword this CES is "creator," and the company unveiled its new Inspire Studio line of compact desktops targeting creators, which are physically similar to the ZBOX Magnus. These are 5.85-liter (volume) boxes that take up minimal space on your desk, but pack serious hardware: a 9th gen Core i7 processor, GeForce RTX 2060 Super graphics, M.2 NVMe storage, and modern networking that include 802.11ax WLAN and 2.5 GbE wired Ethernet.

Next up is the ZBOX Edge. ZOTAC has been pushing the limits of compact desktops, and the ZBOX Edge MI643 is their latest creation. With an ultra-thin design that involves a 2.85 cm tall body and the ability to tuck it away behind your monitor, the MI643 packs a Core i5-10210U quad-core "Comet Lake" processor, DDR4 SO-DIMM memory, M.2 NVMe SSD storage, 802.11ac WLAN, dual 1 GbE networking, and Bluetooth 5.0. A more economical variant of this is the CI341, with 3.21 cm height, Celeron N4100 SoC, M.2 SATA storage, and SO-DIMM memory slots.

RX 5950 XT, RX 5950, and RX 5800 XT: New AMD Radeon SKUs Reach Regulators

Confirmation of four new Radeon RX 5000-series SKUs came to light as AIB partner AFOX pushed them to regulators at the Eurasian Economic Commission. EEC filings have been a reliable early-sign of upcoming PC hardware. All thee new SKUs are positioned above the Radeon RX 5700 XT launched last year. These include the Radeon RX 5800 XT, the RX 5900 XT, the RX 5950, and the RX 5950 XT. Going by AMD's convention of two SKUs per resolution serving up to differentiated experiences, the RX 5800 XT could be a step up from the RX 5700 XT in offering 1440p high frame-rate AAA performance. This could possibly put it in direct competition with the GeForce RTX 2070 Super. AMD took a similar 2-pronged approach to 1080p, with the RX 5500 XT serving up 1080p at up to 60 fps, while the RX 5600 XT topping it up with a 40-50 percent performance uplift.

The Radeon RX 5950-series is completely new. This could very well be a new large "Navi" silicon, since dual-GPU is dead. Just as AMD carved out the RX 5700 XT, the RX 5700, and the RX 5600 XT, it could carve out the three new SKUs from this silicon. AMD CEO Dr Lisa Su already confirmed that her company is working to upscale the RX 5000-series "Navi" family. The RX 5900-series could be competition for the likes of the RTX 2080 or even RTX 2080 Super. The RX 5950-series could target premium 4K gaming (RTX 2080 Ti). It remains to be seen if the three new SKUs are based on the existing RDNA architecture or the new RDNA2 architecture designed for 7 nm EUV, featuring variable-rate shading.

GIGABYTE Readies EAGLE Graphics Card Brand Extension, includes RX 5600 XT

GIGABYTE is readying a new brand-extension for its graphics cards lineup, called EAGLE. It will join the company's existing brand extensions, namely Aorus Gaming and WindForce series. Regulatory filings by GIGABYTE with the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) sees the company launching as many as 30 individual SKUs, spanning nearly every current-generation GPU. On the AMD front, we have cards based on the RX 5700 XT, RX 5700, RX 5500 XT, and the yet-unannounced RX 5600 XT, with its 6 GB of memory.

The NVIDIA lineup includes all its GTX 16-series and RTX 20-series SKUs, with the exception of the RTX 2080 Ti. The inclusion of RTX 2070 and RTX 2080, SKUs believed to have been passively retired with the advent of the RTX 2070 Super and RTX 2080 Super, is interesting. It shows that NVIDIA hasn't given up on the two. The RTX 2070's second-coming in particular, was reportedly triggered by supply shortages in the RX 5700 series, giving NVIDIA room to sell something around the $400-450 mark, bang in the middle of the RTX 2060 Super and RTX 2070 Super.

Memory Chip Swap Mod SUPERcharges an RTX 2080 Ti

Overclocking the memory clock of a GeForce RTX 2080 Ti to 2000 MHz (16 Gbps) isn't difficult, but most custom-design RTX 2080 Ti cards cap out at that, and so the enthusiasts over at TecLab took matters into their own hands by pulling off a daring memory chip replacement mod, by installing 16 Gbps-rated memory chips onto a Galax RTX 2080 Ti HOF graphics card. In a 16-minute video presentation, they detail the process of soldering a component as delicate and sensitive as GDDR6 memory chips, and 45 times over. The team had to sacrifice not one, but two Galax GeForce RTX 2080 Super graphics cards, which feature 16 Gbps-rated memory chips to support the SKU's 15.5 Gbps memory clock. A total of 33 manual solder operations had to be performed (removing the 15 stock chips from the RTX 2080 Ti, removing 11 chips from the two RTX 2080 Super cards, and soldering them onto the RTX 2080 Ti).

The group detailed the process of removing the memory chips under hot air, giving the extracted chips fresh ball-grids, and placing the chips onto the RTX 2080 Ti PCB. No BIOS modding was required, as the RTX 2080 Ti card's video BIOS was able to auto-detect the chips and run them at 14 Gbps. From here on, manual overclocking easily runs the card at 2000 MHz (16 Gbps) memory, with overclocking headroom to spare. The memory clock could now be dialed all the way up to 2150 MHz (17.2 Gbps), something that's close to impossible with 14 Gbps chips. TecLab is calling their creation the world's first RTX 2080 Ti Super, which could very well be true. Last we heard, the RTX 2080 Ti Super could get more CUDA cores, and not just faster memory. Nevertheless, this mod blew our minds, and provides valuable pointers on how to solder dense BGA components without a multi million-dollar placer. We tip our hats to TecLab.
Watch the TechLab video presentation here.

GIGABYTE Also Announces the GeForce RTX 2080 Super Gaming OC WaterForce WB

AMD "Navi 14" and "Navi 12" GPUs Detailed Some More

The third known implementation of AMD's "Navi" generation of GPUs with RDNA architecture is codenamed "Navi 14." This 7 nm chip is expected to be a cut-down, mainstream chip designed to compete with a spectrum of NVIDIA GeForce GTX 16-series SKUs, according to a 3DCenter.org report. The same report sheds more light on the larger "Navi 12" GPU that could power faster SKUs competing with the likes of the GeForce RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Super. The two follow the July launch of the architecture debut with "Navi 10." There doesn't appear to be any guiding logic behind the numerical portion of the GPU codename. When launched, the pecking order of the three Navi GPUs will be "Navi 12," followed by "Navi 10," and "Navi 14."

"Navi 14" is expected to be the smallest of the three, with an estimated 170 mm² die-area, about 24 RDNA compute units (1,536 stream processors), and expected to feature a 128-bit wide GDDR6 memory interface. It will be interesting to see how AMD carves out an SKU that can compete with the GTX 1660 Ti, which has 6 GB of 192-bit GDDR6 memory. The company would have to wait for 16 Gbit (2 GB) GDDR6 memory chips, or piggy-back eight 8 Gbit chips to achieve 8 GB, or risk falling short of recommended system requirements of several games at 1080p, if it packs just 4 GB of memory.

Inno3D Announces GeForce RTX 2080 Super and RTX 2070 Super Gaming OC X2

INNO3D, a leading manufacturer of pioneering high-end multimedia components and various innovations is excited to announce the new INNO3D GeForce RTX 2080, 2070 SUPER Gaming OC X2. Our R&D team have been working hard in order to have every conceivable version of the SUPER series and we're thrilled to showcase the Gaming OC X2. Boasting two large cooling fans and unique cooling system to enhance the way it's cooled - perfect for all Gaming OC fans who require a little more kick to their cooling. It's also powered by the Turing architecture packed with more oomph thanks to additional cores and higher clocks.

This beautiful design houses two incredibly large 10 cm fans that are super effective yet look like they mean business by delivering powerful performance required for the most demanding games. The cooling system comprise of 4 heatpipes that are 932 mm in length and a huge aluminium heatsink giving a surface area of 383,000 mm². It also has bidirectional air flow, two paths for heat dissipation to perform brilliantly keeping heat at bay, and it manages to do so quietly. It is quiet, effective and cool.

Control Can Use Up to 18.5GB of Video Memory

"Control" by Remedy is the season's hottest AAA release, not just because it's an above-average story-driven action RPG, but also because it's an eye candy-shop. With the ability to use NVIDIA RTX real-time raytracing across a multitude of features, the game is particularly heavy on graphics hardware. Tweaktown tested the game's stability at extremely high display resolutions, including 8K, and found that the game can use up to 18.5 GB of video memory, when running in DirectX 12 with RTX enabled. There's only one client-segment graphics card capable of that much memory, the $2,499 NVIDIA TITAN RTX, which ships with 24 GB of GDDR6 memory. Its nearest client-segment neighbor is the AMD Radeon VII, but it only packs 16 GB of HBM2.

When a game needs more video memory than your graphics card has, Windows has an elaborate memory management system that sheds some of that memory onto your system's main memory, and the swap file progressively (at reduced performance, of course). Video memory usage drops like a rock between 8K and 4K UHD (which is 1/4th the pixels as 8K). With all RTX features enabled and other settings maxed out, "Control" only uses 8.1 GB of video memory. What this also means is that video cards with just 8 GB of memory are beginning fall short of what it takes to game at 4K. The $699 GeForce RTX 2080 Super only has 8 GB. The RTX 2080 Ti, with its 11 GB of memory has plenty of headroom and muscle. Find other interesting observations in the source link below.

GIGABYTE Rolls Out Aorus GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER WaterForce WB Graphics Card

GIGABYTE today followed up on its Wednesday launch of its premium liquid-cooled GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER graphics card that has a factory-fitted AIO closed-loop liquid cooler, with its twin that's targeted at DIY liquid cooling users. The new Aorus RTX 2080 SUPER WaterForce WB comes with a factory-fitted full-coverage water-block, which you can connect to your DIY liquid cooling setup using your own G 1/4" fittings.

The block is made of nickel-plated copper mated to an acrylic top that's studded with addressable-RGB LED elements, and a brushed-metal top-plate. In addition to the block, the included metal back-plate comes with an aRGB-illuminated Aorus logo. The underlying PCB is identical to that of the RTX 2080 SUPER WaterForce, and comes with factory-overclocked speeds of 1860 MHz GPU Boost (vs. 1815 MHz reference). The card offers a staggering seven display outputs, three each of DisplayPort 1.4 and HDMI 2.0b; and a VirtualLink. It draws power from a pair of 8-pin PCIe power connectors. The company didn't reveal pricing, but the card is backed by a class-leading 4-year warranty, which could particularly come in handy for the water-block's wear.

NVIDIA RTX 2060 Super and RTX 2070 Super Chips Come in Three Variants Each. Flashing Possible?

While working on GPU-Z support for NVIDIA's new GeForce RTX Super cards, I noticed something curious. Each of the RTX 2060 Super and RTX 2070 Super is listed with three independent device IDs in the driver: 1F06, 1F42, 1F47 for the former and 1E84, 1EC2, 1EC7 for the latter. GeForce RTX 2080 Super on the other hand, like nearly every other NVIDIA SKU, uses only a single device ID (1E81). The PCI device ID uniquely identifies every GPU model, so the OS and driver can figure out what kind of device it is, what driver to use, and how to talk to it. I reached out to NVIDIA, for clarification, and never heard back from them besides an "interesting, I'll check internally" comment.

With no official word, I took a closer look at the actual values and remembered our NVIDIA segregates Turing GPUs article, that was part of the launch coverage for the initial GeForce RTX unveil. In that article, we revealed that NVIDIA is creating two models for each GPU, that are identical in every regard, except for name and price. If board partners want to build a factory-overclocked card, they have to buy the -A variant of the GPU, because only that is allowed to be used with an out of the box overclock. Manual overclocking by the users works exactly the same on both units.

GIGABYTE Unveils the Aorus GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER Xtreme WaterForce Graphics Card

GIGABYTE today unveiled the Aorus GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER Xtreme WaterForce, its most premium offering based on the recently launched GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER GPU. Its design involves a factory-fitted 2-piece AIO liquid-cooling solution for the GPU, held together by coolant tubing. Under the shroud, the pump-block draws heat directly from the GPU and a base-plate that soaks up heat from the memory chips and VRM. Heat is dissipated by a 240 mm x 120 mm radiator ventilated by a pair of 120 mm spinners optimized for radiator-ventilation. With these, the card serves up factory-overclocked speeds of 1860 MHz GPU Boost compared to 1815 MHz reference, while the memory is untouched at 15.5 Gbps GDDR6.

The Aorus RTX 2080 SUPER Xtreme WaterForce is awash with RGB LED embellishments on almost every surface. A large acrylic diffuser takes centerstage on the cooler shroud. There are additional diffusers on the card's top, right next to the two 8-pin PCIe power inputs, and an Aorus logo on the back-plate. The two 120 mm fans each have five aRGB LEDs in the impeller-hubs. Controlling all this is GIGABYTE's RGB Fusion software. Display outputs include three each of HDMI 2.0b and DisplayPort 1.4; and a VirtualLink port. GIGABYTE is backing this card with a class-leading 4-year warranty. The company didn't reveal pricing.

NVIDIA Releases Studio Driver 431.70 WHQL

NVIDIA today updated its GeForce Studio Driver to version 431.70 WHQL. NVIDIA had in March 2019 forked its client-segment GPU drivers to two, the regular GeForce "Game Ready" drivers targeting gamers and regular desktop users; and the special Studio Drivers targeting content creators who don't necessarily own expensive Quadro hardware but could do with certain professional features and application support. These drivers still won't turn your GeForce to Quadro, and won't give GeForce "certifications" for major 3D and content-creation applications, but will ensure compatibility by making the most of existing hardware features of GeForce or TITAN GPUs.

Version 431.70 adds support for GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER, RTX 2070 SUPER, and RTX 2060 SUPER GPUs; expands the list of G-SYNC compatible monitors; and adds support for new content creation applications, namely Magix VEGAS Pro v17, Autodesk Arnold, Allegorithmic Substance Painter 2019.2, Blender 2.80, Cinema 4D R21, and Otoy Octane Render 2019.2. The drivers also enable 30-bit color (not to be confused with 10-bit color) on GeForce and TITAN GPUs. This needed Quadro GPUs until now. Grab the driver from the link below.

AMD Readies Larger 7nm "Navi 12" Silicon to Power Radeon RX 5800 Series?

AMD is developing a larger GPU based on its new "Navi" architecture to power a new high-end graphics card family, likely the Radeon RX 5800 series. The codename "Navi 12" is doing rounds on social media through familiar accounts that have high credibility with pre-launch news and rumors. The "Navi 10" silicon was designed to compete with NVIDIA's "TU106," as its "XT" and "Pro" variants outperform NVIDIA's original RTX 2060 and RTX 2070, forcing it to develop the RTX 20 Super series, by moving up specifications a notch.

Refreshing its $500 price-point was particularly costly for NVIDIA, as it was forced to tap into the 13.6 billion-transistor "TU104" silicon to carve out the RTX 2070 Super; while for the RTX 2060 Super, it had to spend 33 percent more on the memory chips. With the "Navi 12" silicon, AMD is probably looking to take a swing at NVIDIA's "TU104" silicon, which has been maxed out by the RTX 2080 Super, disrupting the company's $500-700 lineup once again, with its XT and Pro variants. There's also a remote possibility of "Navi 12" being an even bigger chip, targeting the "TU102."

NVIDIA Launches the GeForce RTX 2080 Super Graphics Card

NVIDIA today launched the GeForce RTX 2080 Super graphics card, priced at USD $699. The card replaces the RTX 2080 from this price-point, which will be sold at discounted prices of around $630, while stocks last. The RTX 2080 Super is based on the same 12 nm "TU104" silicon as the original, but is bolstered on three fronts: first, it maxes out the "TU104" by enabling all 3,072 CUDA cores. Second, it comes with increased GPU Boost frequency of 1815 MHz, compared to 1710 MHz of the original; and lastly it comes with the highest-clocked 15.5 Gbps GDDR6 memory solution.

The card ships with 8 GB of memory across a 256-bit wide memory bus, which at 15.5 Gbps works out to roughly 496 GB/s of memory bandwidth, a 11 percent increase over the original RTX 2080. Other specifications of the GeForce RTX 2080 Super include 192 TMUs, 64 ROPs, 48 RT cores, and 384 Tensor cores. NVIDIA is allowing its board partners to launch custom-design boards that start at the same $699 baseline.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Super Features 10 Percent Faster Memory

NVIDIA's upcoming GeForce RTX 2080 Super graphics card doesn't just max out the 12 nm "TU104" silicon and add higher GPU clock-speeds, but also features the highest-clocked GDDR6 memory solution on the market, to make the most of the 256-bit wide memory bus of the silicon. NVIDIA deployed 15.5 Gbps GDDR6 memory, which is 10.7 percent faster than the 14 Gbps memory used on the original RTX 2080 and other RTX 20-series graphics cards. The memory real-clock is set at 1937 MHz compared to 1750 MHz on the original RTX 2080. At this memory frequency, the RTX 2080 Super enjoys a memory bandwidth just a touch short of 500 GB/s, at 496 GB/s.

Besides memory, the RTX 2080 Super maxes out the "TU104" silicon by enabling all 3,072 CUDA cores physically present, as opposed to just 2,944 of them being enabled on the original RTX 2080. The card is also endowed with 192 TMUs, 64 ROPs, 384 Tensor cores, and 48 RT cores. The GPU frequencies are set at 1650 MHz with 1815 MHz GPU Boost, compared to 1515/1710 MHz of the original RTX 2080. NVIDIA is launching the RTX 2080 Super at an MSRP of USD $699, with availability slated for July 23. The company's add-in card (AIC) partners are allowed to design custom-design cards that come with improved cooling solutions and higher clocks.
