If the Nvidia Ampere rumours are true, there’s a 33 TFLOPS GPU on Geekbench

Nvidia was testing some monstrous new PCIe graphics cards late last year, potentially from the Nvidia Ampere generation, if the recently unearthed Geekbench database entries are to be believed. The largest of the two GPUs in question supposedly sports more than a 60% increase in SMs compared with the top graphics silicon of the Nvidia Turing architecture generation, and the smaller one still over-shadows anything we’ve seen from the green team in recent years. Even the server-side V100 GPUs… read more

Palit tears the fans off Turing with a silent Nvidia GTX 1650

Palit has released a new silent model of Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650. It’s calling its new, small, ITX graphics card the 1650 ‘KalmX,’ and for good reason. It’s said to run at 0dB as it only requires passive cooling – in other words, no fans – and marks the first model of GTX 1650 to be released that relies on case cooling alone. Its quietness might make you ten times calmer… maybe that’s what it was going for with ‘KalmX.’ read more
