The NVIDIA GTX 1080 is an ancient card that still achieves decent frame rates in most demanding games, but is widely surpassed by newer generations in both performance and efficiency. However, due to shortages, the gtx 1080 costs around $700. Is it worth paying $700 for a GTX 1080 in 2021? Let's review its value/performance, benchmarks and power consumption. Also we will compare it to the newer generations of graphics cards.
It seems like now, with the hiring of Raja Koduri, Intel has a real chance of entering the dedicated graphics market. In this article I will update you with all the latest rumors about the Intel HPG(aming) GPUs, to be perfectly clear we are not talking about Intel's server-side graphics cards, we're focusing on gamers. This is going to be merely speculative, but based on the information we have now and comparing it with NVIDIA's and AMD's latest graphics cards.
Those who think Intel already lost their battle against AMD should reconsider it. There are still a few months left, but little by little data is appearing on what will be the first high-performance hybrid architecture of the blue company. Alder Lake-S as an architecture has been seen in SiSoftware with the impressive figure of 16 cores, what can we expect from Alder Lake CPUs?
Finally, NVIDIA has given an answer to the problems of some RTX 3080 and RTX 3090, which stop working in the middle of the gaming sessions. Recent information on this issue relates to graphics card design by NVIDIA partner manufacturers. After a few days in silence, NVIDIA itself has given an official response, and the manufacturers followed.
Little by little and indiscriminately, both AMD and NVIDIA are watching time pass without their multi-GPU technologies adapting to the new times. Why are you letting NVIDIA SLI die? Is NVIDIA really to blame for this? or instead, are there more culprits? Let’s find out by reviewing a little about the history of SLI and what’s to come in the future.
NVIDIA Ampere graphics cards were the first to incorporate GDDR6X graphics memory, the next step in terms of performance to GDDR6. Thanks to this memory they have managed to equal the 21 Gbps of bandwidth that we had at that time, but they have achieved it in an innovative way that provides multiple advantages ... and some disadvantages. Was the change worth it? Let's see it.
