A new SKU listing by Nvidia points to a new RTX card between the RTX 3070 and the RTX 3080. Is the RTX 3070 Super on it's way to combat AMD's Big Navi?
Earlier this year, Nvidia released RTX Voice, a beta software to process audio and suppress almost all background noise, and it worked amazingly well. My colleague Jon Porter made the sound of his clacking mechanical keyboard completely disappear. Today, Nvidia has released a successor app called Broadcast, and it’s available to download now. Nvidia Broadcast is a follow-up to the RTX Voice beta and introduces two new AI-powered features: Virtual Background and Auto Frame. Nvidia says that the noise removal feature also now has a reduced performance cost and supports triple the number of noise profiles.

Nvidia promised to fight back against bots and eBay profiteering by shipping more stock to retailers and manually reviewing orders to get more cards to legitimate buys.
The flagship Ampere GPU is already showing as unavailable across all retailers in the US
The queue outside Micro Center in Brooklyn. | Photo by TC Sottek / The Verge Nvidia’s new RTX 3080 graphics card went on sale earlier today, but it seems the new $699 GPU is already sold out pretty much everywhere. In the US, Amazon, Newegg, Best Buy, and Nvidia’s own website are either listing the card as being out of stock or only with an option to be notified when a card is in stock. Even stock checking sites like NowInStock.net are coming up empty-handed. Across Twitter, reports are popping up of people attempting to buy the card in person and not having much more luck. One user reported people camping outside their local Micro Center for two days to secure one of the store’s stock of just 11 cards. Another posted a picture of people queuing up overnight outside their local store before its manager was forced... Continue reading…
Photo by Tom Warren / The Verge Sony’s PlayStation 5 opened pre-orders today, and it’s an utter fiasco so far — there was no communication about when, where, or how to get one without competing with scalpers. But perhaps we can help you get your hands on Nvidia’s new RTX 3080 graphics card, a GPU that finally powers 4K 60fps gaming or better for $700? Truth be told, we don’t know when all of these retailers will begin — we’ve already seen this MSI card go in and out of stock — but Newegg recently tweeted that orders begin at 6AM PT, and an Nvidia community manager said the same, so that seems like a pretty safe bet. It’ll definitely happen by end-of-day Thursday, because September 17th is launch day. But we do know where you might want to look: Amazon, Best Buy, and N... Continue reading…

Photo by Tom Warren / The Verge There’s never been a better time to buy a new game console or PC. While consoles have typically been held back by weaker CPUs, spinning hard drives, and average GPU performance, the next-generation PS5 and Xbox Series S / X are promising some big leaps in performance that will put them beyond even average gaming PCs. Nvidia, meanwhile, is claiming it will deliver the “biggest breakthrough in PC gaming since 1999” with its new RTX 3000 series of graphics cards. The stage is set for a next generation of games that can take advantage of powerful CPUs, GPUs, and SSD storage across consoles and PCs. We’re now starting to get a good idea of what this next generation will cost and when it will arrive. Microsoft is launching its Xbox Series X... Continue reading…
Photo by Tom Warren / The Verge Last week, Nvidia unveiled the $699 RTX 3080, which promises double the performance of the RTX 2080 for the same price when it releases next Thursday. Perhaps you’re already sold on that upgrade, but there is one reason you might want to wait: AMD will likely answer with its own competitor to the RTX 3000 series on October 28th. AMD has confirmed that its new line of GPUs is part of the Radeon RX 6000 series, which uses AMD’s new RDNA 2 architecture that includes real-time, hardware-accelerated ray tracing and variable rate shading. The Radeon RX 6000 series also shares the same graphics architecture with the PS5 as well as the next-gen Xbox consoles, Series S and Series X, which are set to release on November 10th. AMD #RDNA2... Continue reading…
