Nvidia RTX 4090 Ti GPU spotted on Galax website – but don’t get your hopes up

Nvidia’s RTX 4090 Ti popped up on the Galax website briefly, as the graphics card manufacturer made quite a whopper of a mistake, before it was pulled down quickly.

As VideoCardz points out, there was a top banner published for the ‘GeForce RTX 4090 Ti HOF’ graphics card on the homepage of the Galax site, but this was a blunder as mentioned – a mistaken addition of the ‘Ti’, seemingly, as clicking the banner led through to the RTX 4090 HOF page.

That’s a graphics card that does exist, of course – unlike the 4090 Ti – and it’s a special edition of the RTX 4090 for expert overclockers looking to break world records (the HOF acronym stands for ‘Hall Of Fame’ edition).

In fact, the 4090 HOF has already set records such as a 3.8GHz overclock which was applied by Team OGS. The banner, which has now been corrected, marks the global launch of the 4090 HOF, which was previously only on sale in Asia (or supplied directly to overclockers like OGS in Europe, in pre-release form).

Analysis: There’s no need for an RTX 4090 Ti, frankly

As VideoCardz points out, Galax’s website team probably needs to go have a lie down in a dark room for a bit, as mistakes aplenty have been made on the site in recent times. Like the RTX 4090 HOF launch material being marred by a bunch of typos, even including mistakes in the spec. (Incidentally, that spec includes a max power draw of 666W – literally making this a beast of a GPU).

Okay, so the obvious rumor spinning coming from this incident is whether there might be an RTX 4090 Ti in the wings, with Galax accidentally mentioning it because such a graphics card is on the horizon. Could that be true?

No, in a word. There have been no leaks around an RTX 4090 Ti – save for the thinnest of whispers that didn’t convince us at all – and if it was anything like near release, we’d be seeing a bunch of more concrete spillage by now.

We do believe an RTX 4090 Ti will arrive eventually, or that’s certainly possible, but likely not for a good long while yet. Maybe when Nvidia sorts out issues around power draw, and those melting adapters, of course – and when there’s an actual need for a more powerful GPU.

Let’s face it, right now the RTX 4090 is a hugely powerful graphics card not remotely challenged by AMD’s new RX 7900 XTX flagship, so what exactly would be the point of an RTX 4090 Ti in the near future? This is very much something for a good way down the line, and Galax’s slip here is just that – a faux pas (one of many in recent times, by all accounts).

Android 12 will bring the end of third-party share menus

Apps like Sharedr will no longer be able to replace the default share dialog. What you need to know Third-party apps will not be allowed to replace the Android share menu in Android 12. You will no longer be able to set apps like Sharedr as the default. Google says it never intended to allow third-party apps to replace the official Sharesheet. One of Android 12 's biggest highlights is the new Material You design language, which brings major changes to nearly every key UI component. Android 12 will also introduce a major change to the way users share links and photos, according to a report from XDA Developers . On Android 11 , Google allows third-party apps and OEMs to fully customize the Android Sharesheet, which is the reason why the share dialog differs from one app to another. It is even possible to completely bypass the official Android Sharesheet by setting an app like Sharedr as the default Sharesheet. In addition to providing a more consistent experience, Sharedr

The new Amazon Fire HD 10 is growing into a viable productivity tablet

An already good entertainment device finally gets productive. Amazon has been busy churning out a whole host of new devices and upgrades to existing devices over the past several months. Earlier this year, I reviewed the excellent Echo Buds (2nd Gen) , and even the fantastic Echo Frames (2nd Gen), have since been updated to include options with sunglass and blue light filtering lenses . In early May, we also learned that Amazon was refreshing the Echo Show 5 and Echo Show 8 and that it was even rolling out its first Echo Show for kids . While newer and more novel products like the ones mentioned above often see a faster update cycle, more mature devices like Kindle e-readers and Fire tablets go longer between new versions. In fact, the last update to the Fire HD 10 line was back in 2019, so, understandably, Amazon was ready to reinvigorate its flagship tablet. Not only did it update the specs and colors on the Fire HD 10, but it also gave us a second version in the Fire HD 10 Plu

Google Announces Support for Account Passkeys

Google today announced that it is introducing support for passkeys, providing an easier and more secure login method for Google accounts. Apple integrated passkeys into iOS with the launch of iOS 16 , and it is also available in iPadOS 16.1 and later as well as macOS Ventura . Passkeys are an industry standard developed by the FIDO Alliance and the World Wide Web Consortium, so Google's passkey integration will work on Apple devices as well as on other devices that support the feature. As Google notes: Last year — alongside FIDO Alliance, Apple and Microsoft — we announced we would begin work to support passkeys on our platform as an easier and more secure alternative to passwords. And today, ahead of World Password Day, we've begun rolling out support for passkeys across Google Accounts on all major platforms. They'll be an additional option that people can use to sign in, alongside passwords, 2-Step Verification (2SV), etc. Passkeys are both easier to use and more
