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.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
