Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080: Australian Review

Nvidia’s newest graphics card is — again — its most powerful, its most energy efficient, and its best for next-generation gaming in virtual reality and in Ultra HD resolutions. It’s also surprisingly cheap internationally, and unsurprisingly expensive in Australia. But price aside, if you do happen to pick up a new GTX 1080-based card either from Nvidia or any of its manufacturing partners, you’ll get yourself an extremely powerful and future-proofed card that also serves as a great bellweather for what will be a very important year in graphics technology.


Full Specs For The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 Are Out

Nvidia’s second Pascal gaming graphics card is finally breaking cover, after only a quick mention at the launch of the top-spec GeForce GTX 1080. It’ll be out two weeks after its slightly more powerful counterpart, but its significantly lower price should make it especially attractive to anyone gaming at sub-4K resolutions.


Nvidia's New GeForce GTX 1080 Is 'The Largest Processor Endeavour In The History Of Humanity'

Nvidia has a new graphics card, and it is doubling down on virtual reality as the reason for hardcore gamers to upgrade their rigs. Several. Billion. Dollars went into R&D for this card — it’s faster than two GTX 980 cards in SLI, and it’s even faster than the Titan X as well.

The new GeForce GTX 1080 also integrates new physics-based audio support, physically-accurate object manipulation using VR hand controllers, and a whole other bunch of goodies to entice you to part with your hard-earned dollars.


Watch Nvidia's New Graphics Card Reveal Live

At 11AM AEST, Nvidia will (almost certainly) introduce its new Pascal video cards to the hardcore gaming world, with a special event live from the US, and the promise of something more than just new GPUs as well. Here’s where you can watch along.


Nvidia Has A Special GeForce Live-Stream Event Tomorrow Morning

After a long wait, it looks like Nvidia is about to finally, formally introduce the world to its next generation of GeForce GTX graphics cards, code-named Pascal. Maybe. There’s something else in the works, too…


AMD's Graphics Card For VR Is Stupid Powerful And Horribly Expensive

The specs needed to just power a VR headset are painfully high, so it stands to reason that the hardware used by developers to make those games will need to be something special. That’s what AMD is trying to deliver with its new Radeon Pro Duo, unveiled at the Game Developer’s Conference today.


The Radeon Pro Duo Is AMD's Most Powerful Ever Graphics Card

1080p, 1440p and 4K are all so passe; the future is about VR. And to build VR games — as well as to play them — you need an especially grunty graphics card. Just announced at GDC in San Francisco and designed for developers, the Radeon Pro Duo is AMD’s latest silicon slice, built on two R9 Fury X GPUs.


AMD Drops Radeon R9 Nano Price To $849

AMD’s Radeon R9 Nano was the most interesting card in the company’s most recent graphics refresh — not because it was the most powerful (that’d be the watercooled R9 Fury X), but because it was the most efficient, and used its power in a tiny footprint that would fit a Mini ITX motherboard. Now, it’s had a pretty significant price cut in Australia.


AMD Rectifies Crashes In Diablo 3 And GTA 5 With New Crimson Drivers

In the latest announcement for their Crimson drivers, AMD took steps to show how they’ve listened to the community and improved the user experience for gamers. “The community feedback gave us a clear list of issues,” the company said.

As it turns out, performance in games is a bit of a priority for AMD’s customers. And being able to play GTA 5 and Diablo 3 without crashing: surprisingly high on the list.


MSI's Radeon R9 390X Graphics Card Is Everything You Need For Sub-4K PC Gaming

I’ve been using Nvidia graphics in my gaming PCs for quite a while — at least a couple of generations. Short dalliances with water-cooled monsters like AMD’s R9 295X2 and R9 Fury X haven’t been enough to tear me away. Maybe it’s time to change, though; after some time away from AMD cards, I gave MSI’s R9 390X Gaming 8GB GPU a bit of a test drive, and came away impressed.
