Sam Machkovech

Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 GPU Price: $799 at Nvidia

Like any piece of expensive technology, a top-of-the-line graphics card comes with all manner of lingo and abbreviation. You'll need a glossary to wade through the stuff inside (processors, CUDA cores, ROPs), the speeds measured (memory bandwidth, boost clocks, TeraFLOPS), and the results you want from a good card (anti-aliasing, frame rates, higher resolutions).

Thanks to Nvidia's newest products, the RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti, that required glossary is only getting bigger.

Welcome to NES-flix: Testing Nintendo Online’s new 8-bit library on Switch

Ars Technica - 28 min 21 sec ago

On Tuesday night, at roughly 11 p.m. ET, Nintendo finally did it: they put a bunch of classic NES games on the Switch.

(No, the December 2017 launch of Vs. Super Mario Bros. doesn't count, because that's a Switch port of an arcade game. We win on a technicality.)

After signing up for the new paid Nintendo Switch Online service, we were able to load 20 first- and third-party NES games on a Switch, all via one 54MB app full of pre-loaded ROMs. Only paying subscribers get access to this app, which makes this—a subscription-based classic-gaming service—as close as Nintendo has ever gotten to resembling Netflix.

Review: Ford crosses over into the mini-SUV segment with tiny EcoSport

The crossover and SUV market, being what it is, has been sliced and diced into discrete chunks. There are the behemoths: true full-size SUVs like the Chevy Suburban. There's the luxury market, where the relevance of "utility" sometimes falls into question. Then there are the subcompacts, cars like the Mini Cooper Countryman and the Honda HR-V—small crossovers with an SUV profile, a reasonable amount of cargo space, and a backseat that's not punishment for those over five feet tall. And then there's the Ford EcoSport.

A wee SUV


New to the US market in 2018, Ford's bite-size crossover sits below the Escape in Ford's soon-to-be-sedan-less lineup, and it has an attractive sticker price. The base model, the EcoSport S, starts at $19,995 and offers a 1.0-liter turbocharged, direct-injected three-cylinder engine. The model we tested, the SES, begins at $26,880. Engine size is doubled, with a 2.0L four-cylinder direct-injection Ti-VCT engine. That's paired with a six-speed transmission and all-wheel drive (on the SES only; the other three models are front-wheel drive). Safety-wise, the EcoSport has side air-curtain tech for both the front and back seats, roll stability control, and Ford's SOS Post-Crash Alert System.
