    First Official Benchmarks for Intel Arc GPUs are Shockingly Bad

    It is, on average, 15% slower than GPUs released three years ago.

    Intel's first discreet graphics card, the Arc A380, was released! Well, it was released, but only in China so far. If nothing else, Intel fulfilled their promise of releasing their first discreet Arc GPU.

    The first official benchmarks for the Intel Arc A380 have naturally started to trickle out and the results are not great. These "official" reviews come courtesy of Intel directly via their reviewer's...

    Nvidia to Reportedly Launch GeForce RTX 3090 Ti on March 29

    Good luck finding one and better luck affording one.

    Nvidia announced the RTX 3090 Ti earlier this year at CES. The company said that they would deliver more information on this tip-top of the line GPU by the end of January. Well, the end of January came and went as did February without so much as a word from Nvidia. Now, a new report by VideoCardz says that Nvidia will launch the RTX 3090 Ti on March 29.

    The tech site says that they have obtained what seem to be the embargo...

    Intel Says Its Desktop Arc GPUs Will be Out in Q2 2022

    Intel announced that their upcoming desktop graphics cards, named Arc, will be out some time in Q2 2022. This means that they could begin to launch anywhere from April 2022 to the end of June 2022. Though the desktop GPUs are coming a bit later, laptops equipped with Arc GPUs will begin shipping this quarter.

    The Arc cards have been in development for some time now at Intel but were only officially announced in August 2021. At CES...

    New Graphics Cards Announced by AMD, Nvidia, and Intel at CES 2022

    More hardware that will be in short supply that you will never get to buy.

    CES 2022 is underway, though there really isn't much of an "in-person" presence this year. Even still, some new tech was announced on the first day that was worth sharing. AMD and Nvidia both announced new releases of their current lineup of Radeon and GeForce cards respectively. Intel announced its first generation of Arc series GPUs.

    Sony Cuts Production Plans for PlayStation 5 by 1 Million Units

    That dreaded chip shortage strikes once again.

    Sony has apparently cut production plans for the PlayStation 5 consoles by about one million units. This is due to, you guessed it, component shortages. Who didn't see that one coming? We already had news just yesterday about Valve's Steam Deck being delayed by two months because of COVID-19 related component shortages, and here we are again.

    As fewer consoles are expected to be made, it stands to reason that it will be even...

    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

    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...
