Powered by Nvidia’s Turing architecture, the Nvidia RTX platform brings together real-time ray tracing, artificial intelligence, and programmable shading for the best of tomorrow’s gaming today. Featuring three ZERO FROZR fans that completely stop when the card is running cool and only spin up as need and a new heatsink with wave-curved fins for more cooling surface and less turbulence and noise, the RTX 2080 Gaming X Trio gives you maximum power with minimum noise. MSI’s custom PCB with beefed up power delivery gives you a stable and powerful platform to get the most of the new RTX 2080 GPU.

Nvidia’s Turing powered RTX launch has been a bit different than previous generations. Previously, the flagship card of a new architecture has been the xx80 series card with the lower models coming shortly after, and then after a fairly significant period of time, the xx80Ti series would follow. We also often don’t see non-reference models of a given card come out until several months have passed, R&D does take time after all. With the mold broken, our very first non-reference card is already here, and it just happens to be a 2080Ti model. Without further ado, ASUS’s ROG Strix RTX 2080Ti OC Edition. ASUS’s flagship is already here and we’re going to see how it does.

NVIDIA GEFORCE RTX 2080 Founders Edition

It's no wonder this card has been the talk of the internet between the reinvented design and the "graphics reinvented" campaign the RTX 2080 Founders Edition doesn't disappoint.  The RTX 2080 Founders Edition design is perfect for any build you may have in mind.  Between the 8-phase power supply, the 13 blade fans, and the new vapor chamber you'll have that quiet and cool performance everyone wants.  With up to 6x the performance of previous-generations the RTX 2080 Founders Edition is powered with Turing GPU architecture and the new RTX platform.

NVIDIA GEFORCE RTX 2080Ti Founders Edition

It’s been nearly two and a half years since Nvidia’s last architecture hit the streets in the form of the Pascal powered GTX 10-series cards. This means it has been a good year to year and a half since the very vocal gaming community has been clamoring about the next best thing. Well, sorry gamers, Nvidia has been waiting for this day for nearly ten years. Featuring for the first time ever, real-time Ray Tracing. You may not be familiar with the term, but if you watch many movies, you’ve seen the results of server farms pre-rendering your movies and special effects. Dubbed the ‘Holy-Grail’ of gaming, Ray Tracing is poised to revolutionize the way lighting, shadows, and reflections are done in games for the ultimate immersive experience.

Colorful iGame GeForce GTX1050Ti Vulcan

Flagship GPU’s are always the envy of most gamers every generation. While a small percentage of the more deep-pocketed builds can snag them, most gamers end up a few notches down the scale in ‘mainstream’ category of cards.  Unless you are chasing blistering frame rates at extreme resolutions on tomorrows games with maximum eye candy, you’ll probably appreciate that capabilities of a much more affordable GPU.  Today, we’ll be checking it out and seeing what you can expect.

ASUS ROG STRIX Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB OC Edition

It’s been a few months since we checked out the ASUS ROG Strix Radeon RX Vega 64, and today we got our hands on its little brother the ROG Strix Radeon RX Vega 56. While the number of Compute Units (or CU’s) is reduced from 64 to 56, not much else is changed save for a small difference in power limits. Does the difference matter for gaming?

Launched late summer 2017, AMD’s Radeon Vega series cards were well received, to the point of being a little scarce on store shelves. It really didn’t help that the Crypto-boom of late 2017 had anything of Team Red’s flying off the shelves without a second glance, but it did give board partners time to work on aftermarket versions of the line quietly in the shadows. While all cards are still flying off the shelves faster than you can blink lately, the first aftermarket variants of AMD’s Vega line are starting to trickle out, and one of the first is right here carrying ASUS famous ROG STRIX Branding in the ROG STRIX Radeon Veag64 OC. Featuring an improved PCB layout, better power delivery, and ASUS’s triple fan Cooler, and packing 8GB of HBM2 memory, this just might be the best Vega yet.
