nVidia starts selling its own graphics cards

nVidia-branded graphics cards accidentally found in Best Buy, but will the hardware company actually start rolling them out?

It looks like nVidia is getting into the retail game, and is planning to manufacture and sell graphics cards under its own name, according to HardOCP. Confused? Let me explain.

nVidia typically produces graphics chips sold as part of products from Asus, PNY, and EVGA, among others. nVidia seemed to be a little taken aback by the HardOCP report, so it looks like Best Buy may have jumped the gun a bit. Apparently the new nVidia-branded graphics cards were set to launch on October 10, but Best Buy let them slip out a little early.

HardOCP has photos of the packaging and the full details.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
