While enthusiasts eagerly await to coming of the next-generation of high-end Radeon cards, AMD shores up its starting lineup with the RX 500 series, featuring small but significant improvements over last year’s RX 470 and RX 480 graphics cards.
Pascal is one of Nvidia’s greatest achievements in the past decade. The company’s latest GPU architecture took gaming performance to the next level with the GTX 1080 in May and then again with the Titan X only a few months later, though you’ll need $600+ to get your Pascal party started with one of these flagships.
Looking to swipe some market share away from Nvidia before the arrival of its GeForce GTX 1060, AMD launched the Radeon RX 480 at the end of June. Codenamed Polaris 10, the company’s first fourth-generation GCN GPU appeared to have everyone rooting for it leading up to its release, and although we were largely…
Didn’t Nvidia just release the GTX 1080? Not sure why they felt the need to go topping it already, but hey, they just did.
The price of entry to PC-based virtual reality just got a lot lower. The first graphics card based on AMD’s Polaris architecture arrives at the end of June, promising VR performance of a $500 GPU for less than half the price.
Last year Nvidia introduced the top-of-the-line GeForce GTX Titan X, a $1,000 beast of a graphics card that blew just about everything else out of the water. Well forget that old thing. The newly-announced GTX 1080 is nearly twice as powerful for several hundred dollars less.
Every part of your gaming PC is precious, working in harmony with other parts to make your games smooth and pretty. But the graphics card is the crown jewel, so iBuyPower’s small form factor Revolt 2 puts it in the appropriate spot.
I've owned a grand total of two gaming laptops. It was depressing how quickly they aged. But the new Alienware 13 may not suffer the same fate. It's the first gaming laptop that lets you connect a external desktop graphics card for freaking awesome, truly unheard-of speed.
We have a winner, but this was by far our closest vote ever. The NVIDIA GTX 770 beat out the R9 280X by a mere 67 votes, and on the low end of the poll, the GTX 780 trumped the HD 7950 by just 15. Funny that there was so much backlash about this vote being pointless when it was the most heavily contended race so far,…
Let's just say that your hour has come again... to vote on the best gear with your fellow Kotakuites. Today's topic: graphics cards, but not just any graphics card, and not the most powerful graphics card. We're looking for the best GPU bang for your buck. With Battlefield 4 in hand and next-gen consoles around the…
A powerful graphics card is likely the most expensive component in your PC if you're a gamer, but with all current and past-gen GPUs available in the range of $100 to $500, it can be tough to pick the right solution for your needs.
In an effort to narrow things down, we're about to compare today's most relevant…
NVIDIA calls the GeForce GTX 590 the world's fastest graphics card and quietest dual GPU, but all I can think is: My new PC is now officially outdated.
A spiritual successor to the Baldur's Gate series, Dragon Age: Origins was the first game of its franchise. Unlike many others, BioWare was wildly successful in bringing this role-playing game to realization as a true multi-platform endeavor, spanning releases on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Mac, and of course, the PC.
Nvidia have produced a proof-of-concept demo that shows how standard (albeit powerful and heavily tweaked) graphics processors can be used to render raytraced scenes in real time.
