Credit: JHVEPhoto/Shutterstock Nvidia lowered its Q4 revenue guidance just before the stock market opened on Monday (January 28), CNBC reports. The statement mentions "weaker than forecasted sales of its Gaming and Datacenter platforms," and the company suggests that "deteriorating economic conditioning in China" played a role. As of this writing, shares had dropped almost 15 percent after the market opened. The company has lowered its guidance to a quarterly revenue of $2.2 billion from $2.7 billion. Nvidia's earnings call, which will discuss 2019 financial results and Q1 2020 guidance is on February 14. "Q4 was an extraordinary, unusually turbulent and disappointing quarter," Nvidia CEO and founder Jensen Huang, said in a statement. "Looking forward, we are confident in our strategies and growth drivers." You can read the full statement on Nvidia's website. The company suggested that management of the excess inventory due to the cryptocurrency boom went as expected, but that sales … [Read more...] about Nvidia Lowers Q4 Revenue Guidance, Stock Drops

Best answer: AOC's AGON AG273QCX does not currently support NVIDIA G-Sync, but this could change in the future. Even so, we recommend you buy one of the currently certified FreeSync panels. NVIDIA hasn't certified this monitor yet NVIDIA is certifying some FreeSync monitors so they work with an NVIDIA GPU, just as they would if they were a G-Sync display. This move got everyone with a FreeSync monitor jumping up and down, believing they will be able to save money by not having to pick up a G-Sync display. The issue is NVIDIA has only certified a few monitors and the new AGON AG273QCX from AOC isn't among them. AOC not only released a FreeSync version of this monitor, but also a G-Sync counterpart. It costs a little more and would render it almost pointless if you could purchase the FreeSync display and save money. Thus NVIDIA and AOC have not certified this monitor to work with NVIDIA GPUs. Will NVIDIA certify this AOC display? I believe so, eventually. But I wouldn't purchase this … [Read more...] about Does NVIDIA support FreeSync on AOC AGON AG273QCX?
The Max-Q mobile iteration of the RTX 2080 will maintain its full complement of CUDA cores and memory bandwidth, but Nvidia has had to take an axe to its clock speed to make it viable for laptop thermals and power requirements. The RTX 2080 Max-Q has a clock speed that’s 600MHz lower when boosted than its desktop counterpart. Nvidia’s RTX 2080 is one of the most powerful consumer graphics cards available today, capable of performance that in certain cases outstrips that of the last-generation powerhouse, the GTX 1080 Ti. It’s not bad at ray tracing either in the right games. It also has a 35W TDP increase over its predecessor, the GTX 1080, so getting it into a form that’s going to stay cool enough within a laptop isn’t easy. That’s where Nvidia’s Max-Q designs typically step in, but in the case of the GTX 2080 it has had to make some significant cut backs. Fortunately, that doesn’t come in the form of CUDA cores, with the RTX 2080 Max-Q … [Read more...] about Nvidia cuts clock speed on laptop-oriented RTX 2080 Max-Q but keeps CUDA cores
If love isn’t in the air for you this year (or even if it is) why not use your savings to buy a new graphics card this Valentine’s Day instead? Nvidia may debut the first of a trio of new midrange graphics cards on February 15, starting with the GTX 1660 Ti. The still-Turing, but not-RTX GPU will reportedly offer performance somewhere between the GTX 1060 and 1070, likely with an eye on competing directly with AMD’s RX 590, and will be priced around $280. The biggest criticism of Nvidia’s RTX series of graphics cards when they released in the latter half of 2018 was that there was no midrange option. With the RTX 2070 offering the cheapest point of entry with a price tag as high as $500, the only real options for consumers looking to upgrade were older 10-series GPUs from Nvidia, or AMD’s even older RX-series. Following the debut of the RTX 2060, Nvidia is now reportedly readying a range of three new “GTX” Turing GPUs, each offering … [Read more...] about Nvidia’s GTX 1660 Ti may launch right after Valentine’s Day
