ASUS GeForce RTX 2080 Ti STRIX OC 11 GB
     Thu, Sep 20 2018 | 4:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ASUS ROG Strix RTX 2080 Ti OC is the company's flagship graphics card, and designed to rival the quality of NVIDIA's own Founders Edition products. A high factory-overclock, bolstered by a strong VRM solution add to its premium credentials.

MSI GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Gaming X Trio 11 GB
     Thu, Sep 20 2018 | 4:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
MSI's flagship graphics card for now, the Gaming X Trio combines NVIDIA's fastest GPU, the RTX 2080 Ti, with the highest factory-overclocked speed available, and some serious electrical muscle to keep it ticking. You could just consider this a halo product and skip the next Titan.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Review: No Seriously, Just Buy It

NVIDIA's new GeForce RTX 2080 Ti is the best graphics card ever made, period."

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti & RTX 2080 Founders Edition
     Thu, Sep 20 2018 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”Looking at the raw performance of these Turing architecture cards there is no doubt that NVIDIA has built the performance curves to absolutely crush the competition. When you see performance results on the order of 30% to 40% or better than the previous generation you know that a new standard of performance has been set. In each and every game the performance of the RTX 2080 Ti Rounders Edition and RTX 2080 Founders Edition just keep pushing the envelope. There is not a game in my test suite that was not playable at 4K. Overclocking the cards just pushes the performance envelope even higher. The new tuning tools in EVGA's Precision X1 application enable the novice overclocker to get a respectable performance increase by pushing one radio button on the screen. The application does the rest for you. Just don't forget to apply the settings. Part of what drives this performance increase is the all new full length vapor chamber based cooling solution. By switching from a radial fan to a pair of 100mm axial fans cooling performance improves by 10 degrees over the Pascal based GTX 1080 Ti FE and GTX 1080 FE without a noise penalty. NVIDIA borrowed a page out of their board partners tool box with this redesign.. If it works why fight it. When you see the on die transistor count increase by 2x plus you have to keep the silicon cool. That the cooling solution does."

Creative Sound BlasterX G6 Review
     Thu, Sep 20 2018 | 9:03A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Sound BlasterX G6 follows in the footsteps of the Sound BlasterX G5 from 2016 and improves upon the foundation that the G5 provided. Some notable upgrades that have been made are an enhanced DAC and Amp. The previous version utilised a 24-bit / 192kHz - which is impressive in its own right, but the G6 betters that with a new 32-bit / 384kHz variant. The Amp also sees a boost and features an ultra-low out impedance of 1ohm which is great when compared to 2.2ohm over the G5. The G6 also adds support for Dolby Digital Decoding and also increases the DNR from 120dB to 130dB.

Samsung Galaxy Watch Review: Feature-Rich
     Thu, Sep 20 2018 | 9:00A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In early August, at its Unpacked 2018 event in NYC where the Galaxy Note 9 was officially unveiled, Samsung took the opportunity to showcase its latest high-end wearable device as well, the new Galaxy Watch. Although the wearables market as a whole hasn’t quite lived up to initial predictions, Samsung has persevered and steadily iterated and improved upon its initial designs. As a result, the company now has a relatively extensive line-up of wearable products, targeting a wide array of lifestyles. The new Galaxy Watch is the polished, jack-of-all-trades of the family. It has the aesthetics and styling of a high-end sports watch, with all of the sensors and capabilities of a specialized sports / fitness targeted wearable...

In our first NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti custom-design, we have in our hands the ZOTAC GAMING RTX 2080 Ti AMP. As tradition would have it, ZOTAC’s AMP edition graphics cards are factory overclocked and with this next-generation model, we also receive a triple fan configuration in a bid to keep temperatures under control. While the memory clock speed remains untouched, the GPU boost clock benefits from a mere 7% overclock – taking the Founders Edition boost of 1545MHz, up to 1665MHz.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Founders Edition 8 GB
     Wed, Sep 19 2018 | 4:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It was very bold of NVIDIA to debut its flagship implementation of the Turing architecture right next to the RTX 2080, poised to be the poster-boy of this architecture. This card packs the promise of real-time ray-tracing, of sorts. NVIDIA also put out its best cooler design since TITAN. All that beauty comes at a price.

Palit GeForce RTX 2080 Gaming Pro OC 8 GB
     Wed, Sep 19 2018 | 4:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Palit's GeForce RTX 2080 Gaming Pro OC is built to a cost and closely resembles NVIDIA reference design, and is meant for those who want to buy into the RTX 2080 ecosystem.There's still a surprising factory-overclock to be had with this card.

GeForce RTX 2080 and 2080 Ti Founder Edition
     Wed, Sep 19 2018 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today is the day we can finally bring you the final performance reviews on NVIDIAs new GeForce RTX graphics cards. We start off today with the founders edition GeForce RTX 2080 and 2080 Ti. Both cards will set a new performance high, as well as being able to offer Hybrid Raytracing in games. And of course, with the help of Tensor cores, we'll also check out DLSS, Super sampled AI antialiasing with no performance hit. It has been a long time coming. Today we start off with two articles, and once the servers and load will normalize we'll also have an ASUS STRIX (2080 Ti) and MSI Gaming X TRIO (2080 Ti) review ready for you. For now though, here are the links towards the founders reviews, grab a drink and a snack as they are 40 pages...

MSI GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Duke 11 GB
     Wed, Sep 19 2018 | 2:04P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
MSI Duke brand no longer represents cheap close-to-reference alternatives. The company has given this cheaper and less glamorous implementation of the flagship RTX 2080 Ti enough love to differentiate it from the premium Gaming X product. And then there's NVIDIA RTX, and all the delights that come with it.

MSI GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Gaming X TRIO

Bjorn3D.com has been around since the dawn of the 3D-cards with Verité Rendition and Voodoo 3DFX. At that time every new card felt fresh and exiting as they often pioneered new cool features that made the games look much better than on the generation before. These days a new generation of GPU's usually brings some improvement in speeds and some new features but nothing that makes you go WOW. That is not strange as the industry has matured.

With the new Turing-architecture Nvidia once again has made a product that at least makes this jaded old reviewer go "WOW". Not only for the cool features like actual usable real-time ray-tracing but also about the price.

Bjorn3D.com has been taking a bit of a nap the last year but it is fitting that when we once again start up with hardware reviews it is with a new graphics-architecture that feels just as exciting as when Rendition, Nvidia or ATI presented their products 20 years ago.

Shannon Robb has taken a long look on the RTX 2080 and RTX 2080Ti and delivers a massive 34 pages filled with data and benchmarks between the new cards and the GTX1080Ti and Titan Xp. How fast are these new cards? Can they hold 60 fps at 4K? Are they worth the high asking price? Shannon answers all of these and more questions in his review.

"I have really gone back and forth on how to open this as, Well the new Nvidia RTX 2080 and 2080 Ti cards are something like I have never really dealt with before. I mean, yes, they are graphics cards by the normal sense but the capabilities they bring is not just another generational jump in performance. No, this time Nvidia has unveiled something that truly has the potential to change the way we view the performance from a GPU. Nvidia has redefined simple rasterization performance by circumventing the standard approach of chasing frequency and die performance by creating new methods to render scened and removing load from the shader and placing it onto specialized "cores" which were initially developed for Nvidia's endeavors into the machine learning space. With that they also call upon their deep knowledge they have gained in the AI space to help better build out predictive models that I believe if adopted could truly pave the way for not just a new wave of gaming performance but a new generation of smarter, faster and more efficient consumer systems."


NVIDIA's 20-series GPUs highly anticipated
     Wed, Sep 19 2018 | 2:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Struggling in most scenarios to beat the GTX 1080 Ti (and failing in some cases), the RTX 2080 doesn't provide the same sort of performance leap we saw coming from the GTX 980 Ti to the GTX 1080. We had previously measured a roughly 20% performance increase going from the previous generation Ti product to the mainstream "80" GPU with the 900-series to 1000-series transition, but now we have to move to the 2080 Ti to see that same sort of performance increase within the RTX lineup. This very well could explain why NVIDIA decided to lead with their RTX 2080 Ti this time, instead of waiting the traditional 6-9 months."

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti And RTX 2080 Benchmarks
     Wed, Sep 19 2018 | 2:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
To date, NVIDIA has disclosed a number of details regarding its GeForce RTX series graphics cards, based on the bleeding-edge Turing GPU architecture. We covered NVIDIA’s official announcements direct from Gamescom, where high-level features like Ray Tracing, DLSS, NVLink, and pricing were initially revealed and followed up with a nice, long podcast chat with NVIDIA’s own Tom Petersen, during which a handful of interesting tid-bits were divulged. We were able to dive into the Turing architecture last week, where we detailed and explained what makes Turing tick in all of its brain-melting glory. Today though, we can finally reveal how the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and GeForce RTX 2080 actually perform. We know many of you have been eagerly awaiting this important data...
