    PlayStation 5 Dethrones Switch as the Top Selling Console for September 2021

    Well, for one month at least.

    The Nintendo Switch has been the top-selling console in the United States for 33 months straight according to data gathered by the NPD Group. That all came to an end in September 2021 when the NPD Group showed that the PlayStation 5 was the top-selling console for the month. The PlayStation 5 sold the most consoles and made the most money compared to the competition.

    The Nintendo Switch has been the best selling console every month since November...

    ASUS Teamed Up with Noctua to Make New RTX 3070 Graphics Cards

    Another card you won't be able to buy.

    ASUS and Noctua just announced that they have teamed up to create a new and rather unique new GPU based off of the Nvidia RTX 3070 cards. The ASUS GeForce RTX 3070 Noctua Edition combines a 3070 with Noctua fans, specifically two NF-A12x25 120mm fans, and a custom heatsink that has been co-engineered by Noctua.

    This GPU is said to reduce noise levels by up to 15dB(A) in certain conditions. A comprehensive breakdown of noise and cooling...

  • New World Might Still be Killing Graphics Cards

    New World Might Still be Killing Graphics Cards

    This isn't necessarily an issue with the game, but a manufacturing issue or coincidence.

    In late July 2021, a beta period for Amazon Games' new MMORPG, New World, caused some graphics cards to die. The lack of a framerate cap was initially blamed for killing a small number of RTX 3090 cards, mainly those from EVGA, but that really didn't make much sense. After all, tons of games can run with uncapped framerates and they don't cause PC hardware to die.

    Amazon Games did...

    Valve Might Be Working on Standalone VR Headset

    Viable competition might be coming for the Oculus Quest.

    According to datamined information shared first by YouTuber SadlyItsBradley, Valve might be working on a standalone VR headset. This means that they are possibly working on a device that will allow you to play in VR without the need for wires or external tracking satellites.

    SadlyItsBradley noticed several references to something called "Deckard" in the latest update for SteamVR. He says that information...

  • Pay More for Nintendo Switch Online to Access Nintendo 64 and Genesis Games

    Pay More for Nintendo Switch Online to Access Nintendo 64 and Genesis Games

    The new plan is kicking off in late October.

    During the latest Nintendo Direct, Nintendo gave the good news that they are bringing Nintendo 64 and Genesis titles to Nintendo Switch Online. Unfortunately, these games will only be offered if you decide you want to pay more for Nintendo's online service, at a price point that has yet to be revealed.

    As it stands right now, Nintendo Switch Online can be yours for an entire year at just about $20 (USD), which really isn't too...

    Prices Leak for AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT and RX 6600

    More GPUs are coming that you probably won't be able to buy.

    AMD is making another push with their 6xxx lineup of graphics cards in 2021. These will presumably begin to launch on or around August 11 and include the Radeon RX 6600 XT and RX 6600 GPUs. At least, that seems to be the ongoing rumor since AMD hasn't officially confirmed anything yet.

    To add to the growing list of rumors today comes word about the potential pricing on these cards. An unnamed source on Neowi...

  • Valve Clears Up '30 FPS Target' for Steam Deck

    Valve Clears Up '30 FPS Target' for Steam Deck

    30 FPS is the bare minimum accepted by Valve.

    In speaking with IGN, a Steam Deck designer Pierre-Loup Griffais, said that Valve has a target of "30Hz" for their output framerate with Steam Deck. He says that everything they (Valve) have tested have run "without issues" and have hit that 800p and 30Hz target really well.

    Obviously, some people took this to mean that the Steam Deck would only run games at a 30FPS cap. Some have even begun to doubt the...

    EVGA to Replace All RTX 3090 Cards Killed by New World

    Don't worry, your $2,000+ purchase is safe.

    EVGA has confirmed to PCGamer that they will indeed replace all of their Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 cards that have met an unfortunate and premature end at the hands of the New World MMO. A spokesperson for EVGA says, "yes, all failed 3090s are being replaced."

    It's still not particularly clear as to what the reason is behind multiple 3090 (and other high-end GPUs) succumbing to an early death at the hands of the new MMORPG...

    New World MMO Blamed for Bricking Nvidia GPUs (Update 2)

    This seems to mainly impact RTX 3090 cards made by EVGA.

    Update 2 (8:03PM ET on July 21, 2021): JayzTwoCents has tweeted out that he has received reports of 6900 XT and 6800 cards from AMD also encountering issues where they have died while playing New World.

    These two card models are the two most powerful cards currently available on the market from AMD.

    This does seem to indicate that it's not limited to Nvidia hardware. We'll be sure to update this as new...

    Nvidia CEO Says RTX 3080 and 3090 Shortages to Last Until 2021

    Good luck getting a card before the new year.

    If you thought that the supply would start to match the insane demand for the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 cards any time soon, you are sorely mistaken. Things aren't looking too good for the RTX 3070 either, but that's another story entirely.

    Today, Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang said that demand will continue to vastly surpass supply through the end of the year. Huang's remarks comes during a recent Q&A session with...

    RTX 3070 Launch is Delayed

    Follows a string of terrible hardware launches.

    Nvidia announced today that the launch of the RTX 3070 has been delayed. The card was slated to be released on October 15, 2020 but will now instead be released on Thursday, October 29th.

    The reason for the delay stems from Nvidia's desire to have more cards available on launch day. This move will also allow Nvidia's AIB partners to get more cards available for the global launch.

    This move is 100% in response...
