Nvidia may be about to tease a next-gen graphics card

By | March 15th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

Nvidia has been rolling out graphics cards non-stop, with a six total Turing RTX and GTX models now, and the company may be about to tease next-generation GPU technology.

Nvidia will reportedly debut its 7nm Ampere GPU architecture during the keynote at its GPU Technology Conference on March 18, according to the latest report from TweakTown.

Before you get excited (or angry) about Team Green introducing even more gaming parts, the new GPU architecture will supposedly succeed Volta as Nvidia’s engine for high-performance computing, digital learning and artificial intelligence.… Read the full article

Intel Ice Lake release date, news and features

By | March 11th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

The computing world has eagerly waited for Intel to boldly show us something we haven’t seen before – and that might be Intel Ice Lake, the company’s first 10nm CPU family.

These processors will see Intel finally move away from its 14nm process, which has been enhanced since the introduction of Broadwell in 2014. With AMD going full steam ahead with 7nm and Ryzen 3rd Generation (and presumably Ryzen Threadripper 3rd Generation), it’s about time for Intel’s processors to evolve.… Read the full article

Intel Lakefield release date, news and rumors

By | March 11th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

Intel must be feeling the heat from Qualcomm Snapdragon-powered laptops, because the company is now developing its first hybrid processor or system-on-a-chip (SOC).

Meet Lakefield, an Intel processor unlike anything you’ve seen before, as it comes packed with more than one type of CPU core to create a better-rounded chip. Additionally, these hybrid chips can even come with their own integrated memory, I/O interface, wireless connectivity and, of course, onboard graphics. 

In this way, Lakefield operates more like the ARM processor found in your smartphone than the traditional computer CPUs that have been powering laptops and desktop PCs practically since they were invented.… Read the full article

AMD Ryzen 3rd Generation specs and prices spill out after a retail leak

By | March 4th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

We got a hearty helping of information about AMD Ryzen 3rd Generation processors at the start of the year, but all has been quiet for a while. Thankfully, this long silence has been broken by a massive retail leak that may have spelled out the entire Ryzen 3000 lineup.

It appears Ryzen 3rd Generation will include many new additions and an overall increase in core counts – if Bigzam’s recently published product catalog is to be believed.

At the head of the family is a new Ryzen 9 3850X processor equipped with 16 cores and 32 threads, with clock speeds ranging between 4.3GHz and 5.1GHz.… Read the full article

Nvidia GTX 1650 may have just showed up in a laptop

By | March 1st, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

Nvidia Turing GTX series graphics cards have been popping out of the woodwork, and now we’re hearing that each of these new GPUs will also have laptop equivalent versions.

The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 has apparently appeared in a 3DMark entry – for a gaming laptop of all things. Thanks to a screenshot taken by TUM APISAK, we can surmise that the mobile version of the GTX 1650 will feature a base clock of 1,395MHz, with 4GB of GDDR5 video memory operating at 8Gbps speeds on a 128-bit memory bus.… Read the full article

Thunderclap hack makes Macs and PCs with Thunderbolt ports vulnerable

By | February 28th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

If you’ve bought a recently released MacBook, Windows laptop or really any PC equipped with a Thunderbolt port, there’s a new vulnerability you should watch out for.

The new vulnerability has been dubbed Thunderclap and it could leave computers open to serious attacks such as running malicious code on your system. This is on top of the usual, unwarranted access to important data like passwords, encryption keys and any other sensitive data stored on your system.

It’s really bad news mainly because Thunderbolt’s protocols are designed with OS-level access and direct-memory access (DMA) to support high-speed data transfer, video out and its other myriad features.… Read the full article

Intel Lakefield video guides us inside its first hybrid processor

By | February 27th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

Intel has released a new video to give us a detailed look and breakdown of its upcoming Lakefield hybrid processor.

Lakefield should sound familiar if you caught wind of it during CES 2019, when it was first unveiled as a hybrid processor designed to compete with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon computing APUs. In fact, this new video is actually more of an extended cut of the demo video that Lakefield debuted with at Intel’s keynote.

From the video, we can see the Lakefield processor makes use of the Foveros 3D design packaging to stack a massive array of memory on top of the chips’s main cores, which in themselves contain a mix of 'big' and 'small' CPUs.… Read the full article

Best Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti: which version is best for your PC?

By | February 26th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti is a graphics card we never expected to be real, but we’re so glad it is. If you’ve been waiting for Team Green to release a Turing-based GPU that was actually affordable, this is it.

Although it lacks ray tracing and tensor cores to power Nvidia’s new RTX and Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) features, this card is a stunning performer and comes in at a reasonable price, too. This is, unsurprisingly, our pick for the best budget graphics card you can buy today.… Read the full article

Cheaper Nvidia GTX 1660, 1650 graphics cards might be coming soon

By | February 26th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

Nvidia GTX graphics cards are alive and well following the release of the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti. Apparently, Team Green’s new mid-range GPU will soon be joined by two more affordable models.

Digitimes reports there are plans to release a GeForce GTX 1660 on March 15th for $229 (about £170, AU$320). What’s more, there will also purportedly be a GeForce GTX 1650 launching on April 30th for $179 (about £135, AU$250).

If this report is true, Nvidia could quickly dominate the entry-level market in the PC gaming world, especially if both of these GPUs are as impressive as the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti.… Read the full article

Nvidia GTX 1660 Ti graphics for laptops could be in the works

By | February 25th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

Hotly following the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti that just launched days prior, apparently we can expect a laptop version of the graphics card to come out soon.

A new mobile Nvidia GPU codenamed 'N18E-G0' popped up in Notebook Check’s database, and the outlet strongly suspects this could the GTX 1660 Ti-class GPU meant for laptops. The codename lines up with those for existing notebook-based graphics processors, including the RTX 2060 (N18E-G1), RTX 2070 (N18E-G2) and RTX 2080 (N18E-G3).

Unfortunately, Notebook Check doesn’t list any specific specs for this rumored GTX 1660 Ti for notebooks.… Read the full article
