Nvidia COD: Warzone Cooler Master Custom TD500 Case Giveaway!

Nvidia have teamed up with Cooler Master & Activision to create a bunch of custom skinned Call of Duty: WARZONE TD500 chassis prizes – and they’re up for grabs to those buying themselves a new GeForce GTX or RTX graphics card!

That’s right folks! For a limited time, if you purchase selected Nvidia GTX or RTX series Graphics Card, or Gaming PC featuring these, and you can then enter the draw to WIN (one of eight) COD: WARZONE PC Cases!

This awesome competition is valid for eligible graphics card purchased between the May 1st & August 30th 2020 (and only at authorised retailers, see PB Tech in NZ.)

Those entering this competition really are in for a treat too – should they win a TD500 case for themselves they’re sure to be blown away by its combination of fantastic cooling performance and custom good looks, but even without the skin, this case is one of the best.

The specific version that Nvidia have skinned for this event comes pre-fitted with 3x 120mm ARGB fans which pretty much guarantee a sweet looking build, especially when matched with that TD500 prismatic front.

Because Cooler Master work closely with the other top hardware manufacturers around the world, those vibrant fans are compatible with software from Asus AURA, Gigabyte FUSION, ASRock PolyChrome & MSi Mystic Light Sync – certainly making things a bit easier as you’re currently shopping for that new graphics card 🙂

Performance is on point thanks to the seamless implementation of mesh ventilation which makes up the entire perimeter of the front panel. Concealed by the front bezel, considerable airflow is provided to the system almost completely out of view. Joined by the top panel ventilation and rear exhaust, the MasterBox TD500 A-RGB delivers efficient cooling and spectacular aesthetics without compromising one for the other… it’s all quite excellent!

Ahhh, such an awesome prize, be sure to check out the full range of Nvidia Graphics Cards at PB Tech today!

BUT WAIT!? There’s more to this!

Those fine folks at Cooler Master have another way to for you to WIN! And they’ve also combined that awesome custom TD500 chassis above with a couple of extra CM gaming gears to sweeten the prize pack!

Enter the Cooler Master WARZONE Gaming Giveaway <- Here!

The MM711 is a truly innovative mouse that does more with so much less. Along with all the pro-grade features that make our gaming mice deadly in combat, we’ve also implemented a striking new shell design, lightweight and durable Ultraweave cable and RGB – all while keeping the overall weight of the mouse to less than 60g. The result is quicker movements, longer gaming sessions, minimal fatigue, less sweaty palms 😛

The MH650 Gaming Headset provides an immersive experience in a portable package ideal for console and PC gamers. Virtual 7.1 surround sound and omnidirectional boom mic offer high-quality sound and comms, wrapped in a sleek matte black design and fully customizable RGB illumination – and cushioned ear cups provide the perfect fit for those marathon sessions.

OK, I think that’s us sorted – we certainly didn’t expect two ways to win that awesome CM Case but we ain’t complaining!

GOOD LUCK & GAME ON!

RTX STUDIO ADOBE Creative Cloud BONUS Bundles!

Nvidia have a sweet new bonus offer, and this one is for those grabbing a new Quadro RTX, GeForce RTX or RTX TITAN systems!

For a limited time, and only while code stocks last, you can register to redeem a special Adobe Creative Cloud 3-Month Subscription Bonus with select RTX Graphics Cards, Custom PC featuring these, and even the new RTX Studio laptops!

The Adobe creative cloud is made up of over 30 creative applications including Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, Lightroom Classic, Premiere Pro, After Effects, and Dimension – you’ll also get access to heaps of other handy assets, fonts, storage and more will be available to help with your creations.

This RTX Adobe bonus offer is available on eligible purchases from February 6th 2020 – May 31st 2020, and only while code stocks last.

This sweet bonus times itself perfectly to promote the latest set of studio drivers from Nvidia, which released on February 3rd, and these combined with the GPU acceleration technology dramatically enhance performance and stability in essential Adobe apps.

Via Nvidia: RTX allows designers to interactively iterate their product, model or building and see accurate lighting, shadows and reflections. Digital artists in the entertainment field can apply the same principles to their animations and visual effects. RTX technology can also be used in servers for batch rendering of scenes too complex to visualize in real-time, or for “light baking” — pre-calculating how textures will look in certain environments for games and other interactive visualization. And the AI acceleration facilitates denoising, pose estimation and other advanced capabilities that enable new features for animators and visual artists of all kinds.

Wondering how to get the new RTX Studio drivers? Simply head to https://www.geforce.com/drivers and enter your hardware configuration just like we’re used to doing for the GeForce gaming ones, in the results you’ll see a new pop up – quick pic below!

Getting your code is easy, once you’ve got your awesome new hardware simply head the redemption website below that matches your chosen brand, fill in the form to get your coupon code, then enter it into GeForce Experience to get your Adobe Cloud Bonus Code!

The best bit is, the offer works even if you’re already signed up to the creative cloud – good stuff Adobe and Nvidia!

GAME ON!

Nvidia Super – RTX 2060S, RTX 2070S & RTX 2080S

Nvidia have a whole bunch of new graphics cards options for PC gamers in NZ and they’re calling them SUPER!

UPDATE: Nvidia have a new 2x Game BONUS up for grabs too! Check out the SUPERFAST SUPERNATURAL Promotion for more information.

Much like the existing Ti identifier, these new ‘S’ models (EG: ROG-STRIX-RTX2060S-O8G-GAMING) indicate the increased performance of the much loved RTX 2060, RTX 2070 and RTX 2080 options – with the new models named RTX 2060 SUPER, RTX 2070 SUPER and RTX 2080 SUPER. Right now, Nvidia is busy showing off the founders’ edition cards but there are some wonderful new aftermarket versions for these ones too!

Kicking off with the RTX 2060 SUPER models we get a 2GB memory upgrade bringing the total to 8GB onboard. This is nice for those playing games such as Apex Legends, which displays a memory warning when running the game on max settings with the 6GB card.

Looking at the first releases, we have some excellent new RTX 2060 Super Graphics Card models!

Asus ROG Strix GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER
Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER Windforce
Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER Gaming OC
Aorus GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER
EVGA GeForce RTX 2060S SUPER SC Ultra

The new RTX 2070S is running 8GB VRAM also, but the GPU architecture this time is taken from the RTX 2080 (Turing 104, classic RTX 2070 is using Turing 106) so it’s looking a lot like a cut-down RTX 2080 🙂 This, of course, makes the RTX 2070 Super Graphics Card power requirements change heavier due that increased performance, with the RTX 2070S now using the 8pin + 6pin power connection rather than a single 8-pin seen on the classic RTX 2070.

New models for RTX 2070 Super as below!

Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER Gaming OC
Asus GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER Dual EVO
Asus ROG Strix GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER
Aorus GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER

EVGA GeForce RTX 2070S SUPER Black
EVGA GeForce RTS 2070S SUPER XC

And that brings us to the new RTX 2080 Super, which is also running with 8GB VRAM and Turing 104 architecture just like the standard version, but with a few additional cores to boost that performance.

Aorus GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER
Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER Gaming OC
EVGA GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER Black Edition
EVGA GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER XC
EVGA GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER XC Ultra (really BIG!)
EVGA GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER FTW3 Ultra (also really BIG!)

You can check out all the new models in the Nvidia Store at PB Tech, and be sure to keep your eyes on our Gaming PC builds for the latest!

GAME ON!

BORN TO HUNT – Wolfenstein: Youngblood RTX BONUS!

UPDATE: This promotion has been updated to the new SUPERFAST SUPERNATURAL RTX Game Bonus with Control + Wolfenstein: Youngblood

Nvidia have kicked off a new free game bonus offer with selected RTX Graphics Cards or RTX Gaming Laptops/Gaming PC featuring this hardware.

For a limited time and while code stocks last you can register to redeem a game code for Wolfenstein: Youngblood!

Essentials…

This promotion is only valid from authorised retailers, see the full range of eligible Wolfenstein: Youngblood RTX Graphics Cards, Gaming PC and Laptops at PB Tech.

Eligible graphics for promotion: Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, RTX 2080, RTX 2070, and RTX 2060

Bundle Valid on purchase dates: May 28th – Aug 6th, 2019

Wolfenstein: Youngblood is the first modern co-op Wolfenstein adventure. Team up with a friend or play solo as one of BJ Blazkowicz’s twin daughters and wield a powerful arsenal of new weapons, gadgets, and abilities to liberate Paris from the Nazis.

Good Graphics Card – GTX 1650 Available Now in NZ!

UPDATE: Custom PC builder links now have the new options!

GTX 1650 Intel Gaming PC Build

GTX 1650 Ryzen Gaming PC Build

The new GTX 1650 Graphics Card is available now in New Zealand, giving us a another great low cost option for gaming PC builds! 

Designed to be the cheapest option in the new GTX 16XX series, these new GTX 1650 position themselves just above the GTX 1050Ti performance wise, and just behind the GTX 1060 – for a similar price. In games it’s looking very good indeed, the GTX1650 is a nice upgrade from the popular GTX 1050, or a very nice upgrade from the GTX 950 🙂 The best bit is we get to enjoy the updated cooler designs from the masters at Gigabyte, Asus and EVGA, so with these new cards in our systems they’ll look and run better than ever.

Looking specifically at the current PC chart-toppers, Apex Legends, Fortnite and PUBG, a little tweaking to the settings gives us excellent performance even in some pretty intense fire fights.

The smaller size and affordable price point make these new GTX 1650 a top choice for a lounge computer, perfect for playing games with your mates – the new Mortal Kombat is looking particularly good!

Looking closer at the fastest models from the new arrivals, namely the EVGA SC Black Edition and Gaming Edition, both these GTX 1650 models have an extremely fat custom cooler, not long, just heavy on the slots it takes up. As this cooler really is big, be aware if you’re planning a PC with it first check your motherboard spacing (the graphics card might block a slot you had intended for WiFi). Both require an additional 6Pin power input so plan for 75watts and also important to note is there are just 3 monitor outputs on these new GPU, 1x HDMI (4K 60FPS ready) and 2x DisplayPorts.

Essentials…

EVGA 04G-P4-1153-KR SC Gaming Edition:

– 4GB 128-Bit GDDR5

– Boost Clock 1860 MHz (Checking details still, this seems very very high)

– 1 x HDMI 2.0b 2 x DisplayPort 1.4

– 1x 6Pin Power Input

EVGA 04G-P4-1151-KR SC Black Edition:

– 4GB 128-Bit GDDR5

– Boost Clock 1665 MHz

– 1 x HDMI 2.0b 2 x DisplayPort 1.4

– 1x 6pin Power Input

We can’t wait to build with all the new options as they arrive in NZ, the new Gigabyte version looks especially awesome with the black/grey coolers and slimmer slot form factor to allow for more traditional Gaming PC builds, and we’re excited to see which versions have no additional 6Pin required for some mini Gaming PC builds, whatever the case it looks like fun times ahead!

GAME ON!
