NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 Review: Reasonably Priced Ray Tracing
     Mon, Jan 07 2019 | 1:20P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
GeForce RTX 2060 rumors began circulating soon after the launch of the initial batch of cards. Some of the news suggested that NVIDIA would do away with the RT and Tensor cores in the more mainstream-targeted RTX 2060, and omit support for real-time Ray Tracing and DLSS as a result. Well, as it turns out, those rumors couldn’t have been more wrong. In fact, the new GeForce RTX 2060 we’ll be showing you here today is based on the very same Turing TU106 GPU that powers the higher-end GeForce RTX 2070, with a handful of tweaks, of course...

GeForce RTX 2060 Founders edition
     Mon, Jan 07 2019 | 1:20P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NVIDIA today announced the GeForce RTX 2060, the graphics card will be unleashed next week the 15th at a sales price of 349 USD / 359 EUR. Today, however, we can already bring you a full review of what is a pretty feisty little graphics card really. Read the full review here.

Nvidia RTX 2060 Founders Edition 6GB Review
     Mon, Jan 07 2019 | 1:19P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Following on from the launch of the RTX 2080 and 2080 Ti in September, and then the RTX 2070 a month later, it’s not exactly a surprise that the RTX 2060 is the next Turing-based graphics card to be released by Nvidia. Essentially a cut-down RTX 2070, based on the same TU106 GPU, this card does indeed have the necessary RT and Tensor cards to make use of RTX features like ray tracing and DLSS – contrary to some rumours, this is very much an RTX card, not a return to GTX nomenclature. Just how effective the card is when it comes to real time ray tracing, we will have to see – and there is still only one game on the market that actually supports the technology. But with this Founders Edition retailing for $349 – or £329 for us in the UK – is the all-round performance enough to justify the price?

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 Review: Nearly As Fast As GTX 1080

NVIDIA's new GeForce RTX 2060 Founders Edition offers GeForce GTX 1080 levels of performance for $349."

NVIDIA Geforce RTX 2060 Founders Edition
     Mon, Jan 07 2019 | 1:19P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
” After the usual back and forth of the core tuning I finished up with tuning the memory by adjusting the sliders up until the 3D loads failed or scoring started dropping due to memory errors. Pretty straightforward when you get down to it. On the RTX 2060 FE I would see a flash of the core clock speed to up and over 2100MHz, but after the heat starts to build the final speeds on the core settle down and run in the 2040MHz to 2055MHz range. The GDDR6 memory on this card was able to run just fine with a +524MHz offset to raise the effective speed of the memory to 7524MHz. This card easily surpasses its built-in GPU Boost 4.0 clock speed of 1680MHz in many games. The added tuning makes a difference in overall performance that costs you nothing more than your time.”

Zotac GeForce RTX 2080 AMP Extreme Graphics Card Review
     Mon, Jan 07 2019 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"NVIDIA launched their RTX graphics cards back in September and we finally go our hands on one! With the RTX series NVIDIA hope to bring real-time ray-tracing to the masses. This technology is so important to NVIDIA that they actually changed the naming of these cards from GTX to RTX. Since the launch there are a plethora of RTX cards available in RTX 2070, RTX 2080, and RTX 2080 Ti flavors. The card we are taking a look at today is an RTX 2080, which currently sits as Zotac's flagship RTX 2080. It is the RTX 2080 AMP Extreme and features a 16-phase VRM, a very impressive 1905 MHz Boost clock and memory overclock, and a new shroud design with RGB lighting. Is this the RTX 2080 you should buy? Read on as we find out!"

In this review we looked at the Zotac RTX 2080 AMP Extreme graphics card. This is the highest end card Zotac offers using the RTX 2080 and is built to perform. Out of the box the card comes factory overclocked (hot clocked) at 1905Mhz making it one of the fastest cards on the market

NVIDIA RTX 2080 Overclocking Guide

Posted by: STAFF
"It seems to be that time again for another overclocking guide. With the newly released 20 series by NVIDIA comes a host of new and revised features to improve the gaming experience. As for the manual overclocking aspect, things still look grim for those enthusiasts trying to maximize the video card's full potential without physically modifying the actual card. In this guide I will be covering NVIDIA Boost technology, overclocking the RTX 2080 in a manual configuration, and using the NVIDIA Auto OC Scanner."

Zotac Gaming RTX 2070 OC Mini 8GB Review
     Fri, Dec 28 2018 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Zotac is well known for producing monster-sized graphics cards within its AMP! Extreme line up, but then it has also had success at the opposite end of the spectrum with its Mini series. The card we are looking at today is definitely Mini, measuring in at just 211mm long. It’s an RTX 2070, too, with a factory overclocked core – so we are definitely still hoping for solid performance despite this card’s diminutive nature. Have any trade-offs been made to get an RTX 2070 to this size? Let’s find out.

We bring you the world's first GeForce GTX 1060 GDDR5X review. NVIDIA has recently released a new GTX 1060 variant, which uses faster GDDR5X chips, instead of GDDR5. While out of the box speeds are identical, we found a massive 44% memory overclocking potential, which lifts the card to new performance levels.

Gigabyte Aorus GeForce RTX 2070 Xtreme Review:
     Sun, Dec 23 2018 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Post launch, NVIDIA’s board partners ramped-up their custom GeForce RTX designs relatively quickly. It’s not uncommon for some of the larger, premiere partners to have custom cards ready on launch day, but with the GeForce GTX series, some of them had literally dozens of different cards at the ready. Gigabyte didn’t hit the ground running quite as hard as some others right on launch day, but WOW has the Taiwanese manufacturer since hit its strike and shipped a wide array of GeForce RTX cards. The company’s website lists no less than 26 GeForce RTX 20-series graphics cards, including everything from small form factor mini-ITX models, on up to factory-overclocked, water-cooled beasts. The card we’ll be showing you here today, the Gigabyte Aorus GeForce RTX 2070 Xtreme, falls about in the middle of the stack and incorporates a handful of unique features...
