Nvidia rolled out its new Ampere-based GeForce RTX 3000-series graphics cards, with the top-of-the-line RTX 3090 that the company claims can handle 8K/60 frames-per-second gameplay -- using upscaling in what's called DLSS 8K mode. We also heard about the RTX 3080 and 3070, the usual better-faster replacements for their predecessors, the RTX 2080 and 2070. Essentially, the 30-generation of the GeForce cards is intended to provide the performance with ray tracing and DLSS that we expected when Nvidia first announced the RTX line.
GeForce RTX 3090 cards are slated to ship on Sept. 24 starting at $1,499, while the RTX 3080 is coming on Sept. 17 starting at $699 and the RTX 3070 in October beginning at $499.
The RTX 3090 is really more of a Titan RTX replacement, with HDMI 2.1 and AV1 decoding support, plus 24GB GDDR6X (G6X) and "a giant Ampere" processor. It's a three-slot card and almost all of it's cooling and heat dissipation. Games launching with DLSS 8K support include Control, Death Stranding, Minecraft with RTX Beta for Windows 10, Watch Dogs: Legion, and Wolfenstein: Youngblood.
The RTX 3080 and 3070 seem to deliver about a 30% improvement over the Super versions they replace, which is pretty good in gen-over-gen terms; Nvidia claims the 3070 is faster than the 2080 Ti at the price of the 2070 Super in 4K.
Are you ready to game yet? We will have ours ready to go as soon as they are released and will be putting them in our new gaming builds.
Lenovo has warned ThinkPad owners that the August 11, 2020 Patch Tuesday update for Windows 10 version 2004 is causing Blue Screen of Deaths (BSODs) and breaks Windows Hello biometric login.
The issues affect Lenovo ThinkPads made in 2019 and 2020 and, according to a support article from Lenovo, stem from the Enhanced Windows Biometric Security setting in BIOS setup. The bug appears in the cumulative update KB566782 for Windows 10 version 2004, which included over 100 security patches as well as new security features for the OS.
After installing KB566782, users may notice BSODs when booting, when starting the Lenovo Vantage for updating drivers, or when running a Windows Defender scan, according to Lenovo.
Other symptoms include being unable to login using face authentication with Windows Hello, as well as errors in Device Manager that are related to both the Intel Management Engine CPU subsystem and the device's infrared camera.
Fortunately, Lenovo notes there is a solution: "Disable the Enhanced Windows Biometric Security setting in BIOS Setup -> Security -> Virtualization menu."
