Nvidia’s new GTX 1070 freezes out Fury, trashes Titan X The GTX 1070 packs 1,920 CUDA cores, 120 texture units, and 64 ROPS.Memory bandwidth is 256GB/s, which puts the new GTX 1070 in between the older GTX 980 (224GB/s) and the 980 Ti (336GB/s).

Nvidia may scrap its high-end mobile GPUs, bring full-size GTX 1080, 1070 to laptops

Nvidia may scrap its high-end mobile GPUs, bring full-size GTX 1080, 1070 to laptops While the relative performance of laptop GPUs compared to desktop cards has varied, both companies have generally recognized the need to build lower-power cards to fit into laptop chassis.PCG reports that Nvidia will bring the full-fat versions of both the 1080 and 1070 to mobile systems, with clock speed tweaks to ensure the GPUs don’t draw more power than the laptop can handle.

Why modern HDTVs still aren’t as good as monitors for gaming

First, there’s the issue of input lag.One of the problems with HDTV gaming is that input lag on the best TVs is still higher than on top monitors.

PC Gaming Is Only Hard If You Let It Be

PC Gaming Is Only Hard If You Let It Be Because, in his attempt to address what he perceives as problems with the PC gaming industry, Maiberg revealed just how little he cares about—and, in fact, understands—a hobby I’ve long held dear.To the extent it’s discernible beneath his faux indignation, Maiberg’s point seems to be that PC gaming is too hard because it calls for some work.
