Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 & AMD Ryzen 7 2700 Benchmarks – Does the CPU bottleneck the GPU?

I was one of the small number of people that managed to buy an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 when it was launched last Thursday. After receiving an email off CCL Computers that I probably won’t get it, I luckily didn’t cancel the order, and they ended up delivering the Zotac GeForce RTX 3080 Trinity on Friday. With me not being a rich YouTuber or a dedicated PC site, I have not got the latest hardware to benchmark this card on, nor do I have every generation of card that precedes this. However, I hope some people will find this...

Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 with 20GB, RTX 3060 with 8GB & RTX 3070S with 16GB could land this year – so don’t stress about your missed RTX 3080 pre-order

The Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 didn’t exactly go as smoothly as people would have liked, stock sold out almost instantaneously. It would seem like a short supply from Nvidia combined with a significantly greater demand than usual has caused this, potentially leaving people with weeks to wait. However, the RTX 3070 launches next month, as does the latest AMD flagship GPU so you will likely have a lot more choices in the next month. Now it looks like even more, RTX3000 series cards are on the horizon. It had already been speculated that a 20GB RTX 3080 would launch,...

Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 vs RTX 2080 & 2080 Ti – RTX 30 series offers a bigger performance leap than GTX 980 to 1080

[Updated: 14th of September 2020] Added new leaked benchmarks with 3DMark, Shadow of Tomb Raider and FarCry New Dawn Hype for the new Nvidia GeForce RTX 30 is massive right now. This could be the best GPU release from Nvidia in years and will no doubt AMD will be worried. Currently, it is speculated that AMD will announce their Big Navi GPUs on or near the 7th of October, likely just before the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 launches that month. That may give us some idea on what sort of performance to expect from AMD, likely wanting to compete...

Cheap Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Cards get listed on eBay with RTX 3080 & RTX 3070 upgrade hype

Graphics cards surprisingly hold their value well, which make the ever-increasing cost of a new GPU a little more bearable. Even my old GTX 1070 which I bought for £370 in 2016 looks like it will sell for £150-ish, so £220 for 4 years of gaming is a bargain if you ask me. With the launch of the new Nvidia GeForce RTX 30-series many people are starting to list their GeForce RTX 2080 Ti cards. While these cards have typically retained their value well, many people on Reddit have reported selling them for nearly RRP, the new RTX 3080...

Yesterday NVIDIA announced the much-anticipated GeForce RTX 30 series which is based on its Ampere architecture and built on an optimized version of Samsung's 8nm process.

Recently Nvidia announced their new low power mobile GPU, the GeForce MX450. Its predecessor, the MX350 was only released in February 2020, with the MX250 being released in February 2019. Nvidia hasn't released that much information about the GPU and a lot of companies have only just started using the GeForce MX350, with many others such as the Huawei Matebook 13 still using the MX250. Nvidia GeForce MX450 Specification Nvidia hasn't been particularly forthcoming with the GeForce MX450 specification, but there are a few notable upgrades that could indicate some significant performance gains to be had over the MX350....

Nvidia RTX 3080 & 3070 Specifications Leaked with 10GB & 20GB VRAM – RTX 3080 should sit midway vs RTX 2080 Ti & RTX 2080 Super

I am still reeling over the launch price of the original Nvidia RTX price, so it was surprising to remember that they were actually launched in Q3 2018. So there is a good chance we will see a new generation of Nvidia cards this year and a new leak claims to reveal some of the specs we will see. The two new GPUs are codenamed GA103 and GA104 with these two designs likely to be the RTX 3080 and RTX 3070 respectively. There is also mention of a GA102 chip which could likely be the RTX 3080 Ti or...

AMD Radeon RX 5500 XT fails to impress vs Nvidia GTX 1660

The AMD Radeon RX 5500 XT has finally become available and the usual websites have reviewed cards from various OEMs. While AMD has thoroughly shaken up the CPU market, they appear to be struggling to do the same with graphics cards. The AMD Radeon RX 5500 XT has come out to middling reviews, it is not a bad card, but the performance per £/$ is not quite what people hoped for. It is not quite as black and white as that, the RX 5500 XT 4GB appears to be actually a decent alternative vs the Nvidia GTX 1650 according...

Navi 12 Radeon RX 5800 Series to come with 256-bit Bus & Navi 14 Radeon RX 5600 with 128-bit Bus claims leak. Could launch in October

While AMD Ryzen has reinvigorated AMD and become a fan favourite for gamers looking for a bargain, the GPU division is still lagging behind NVIDIA. While we have already seen the first release of 7nm Navi 10 based GPUs, most of us are wanting to see what AMD will do with the high-end Navi 20 cards which are due out in 2020. It is now believed AMD is planning to release a new range of cards based on Navi 14 & Navi 12 GPU. This rumour started after a recent listing in the Mesa 3D GPU library which has...

AMD cuts Radeon RX 5700 price to compete with Nvidia’s Super RTX 2060 / 2070

It is a good day for consumers, under the threat that the Radeon RX 5700 will compete with the RTX 2070 & 2060 we have already seen Nvidia launch their Super cards, offering more performance for the same price as the original RTX parts. Some view it as a bit of an underhanded move by Nvidia, but now AMD is countering by lowering the price of the up and coming Radeon RX 5700 models. The base Radeon RX 5700 with 36 compute units and speeds of up to 1.7GHz was originally announced at $379, but will instead hit shelves...

Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 Super & RTX 2060 Super Founders Edition Review Round-Up

We often get months worth of leaks during a build up for a new grpahics card, but a few weeks ago, as the hype for AMD Navi built up, it emerged that Nvidia were preparing the launch of the new Super variants of their RTX cards. Suspiciously the launch of these cards is just 5 days before the launch the new AMD Ryzen 3000 CPUs and Radeon RX 5700 GPUs. While this is certainly an underhanded move from Team Green, which has caused a lot of frustration for many media outlets trying to keep up reviews, competition is always...
