The wait for Titanfall 2 is almost over. It will arrive to PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One at the end of next month. In the meantime, if you're looking for a reason to splurge on a graphics card upgrade for your computer, NVIDIA posted a few minutes of awesome game play footage showing the title running at a 4K Ultra HD resolution at 60 frames per second on a Titan X. Not that you have to go out and buy a Titan X to play Titanfall 2 at a 4K resolution at 60 FPS. Developer Respawn Entertainment recommends a GeForce GTX 1080 graphics card, along with an Intel Core i7-6700K processor (or equivalent),... Read more...
When enthusiasts think of NVIDIA, they typically think first and foremost about graphics cards. However, the company over the years has broadened its portfolio to include deep learning accelerators, gaming consoles, and even processing engines for self-driving cars. Today, NVIDIA is expanding on the last segment of its business by teasing Xavier. Xavier, which was announced at the European edition of the GPU Technology Conference, is an artificial intelligence (AI) supercomputer that was designed from the ground-up to be used for self-driving vehicles. Xavier is an SoC built around a custom 8-core... Read more...
We’ve already heard rumblings about NVIDIA’s upcoming budget GeForce GTX 1050 GPU series, and today we’re learning even more info about the cards that are aimed at the ultimate penny pinching gamers. We’ve learned that there will reportedly be two versions available, both of which are based on the GP107 graphics core: the standard GeForce GTX 1050 with 2GB of RAM and the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti with 4GB of RAM onboard. The GeForce GTX 1050 is said to come with 640 CUDA cores, which by far makes its the weakest member of the Pascal family. The base clock is dialed in at 1354 MHz, while the boost clock...

Gears of War 4 is one of the most highly anticipated game launches coming this fall, and it will be available on both Xbox One and PC gaming platforms. The folks at NVIDIA are making it easier to obtain the game, as it will provide Gears of War 4 free for anyone that purchases a GeForce GTX 1080 or GeForce GTX 1070 graphics cards. Although Microsoft recommends at least a GeForce GTX 1060 for PC gamers looking to blast away their foes in Gears of War 4, NVIDIA reckons that the GeForce GTX 1070 and GeForce GTX 1080 will provide the best visual experience (hence their inclusion in this promotion)....

NVIDIA pushed the gaming sector forward with its Pascal architecture, perhaps more so than any new GPU architecture in recent memory when factoring in both performance and price. However, gamers aren't the only ones who stand to benefit. The GPU maker today announced some new additions to its Pascal-based deep learning platform, the Tesla P4 and Tesla P40. These GPUs feature specialized inference instructions based on 8-bit (INT8) operations, delivering 45x faster response than CPUs and a 4x improvement over GPU solutions launched less than a year ago, NVIDIA says. The systems that these GPUs will... Read more...
The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is one of the world’s largest if not THE largest tech expo held each year. Well over 100,000 tech enthusiasts and press congregate in Las Vegas every January to see the latest computer hardware, gadgets, and high-tech automobiles that companies have to offer. One Silicon Valley company in particular that has diversified itself quite nicely in the past few years will be among those invited to help kick off the festivities at CES 2017. Jen-Hsun Huang helped to co-found NVIDIA in 1993 and currently serves as the company’s CEO. Huang will deliver a preshow keynote... Read more...
Sometimes, it's best to accept the fact that you can't do everything yourself, and where microprocessors are concerned, that can be critical. Sometimes there's just no sense in reinventing the wheel. However, Samsung has been driving to build in-house graphics IP for its Exynos mobile chipsets for quite some time. According to new rumors, though, the Korean company has put that idea on hold, and is instead considering licensing GPU IP from other major players like AMD and / or NVIDIA. According to industry sources at SamMobile, Samsung is in talks with both AMD... Read more...
We've been hearing about NVIDIA's NVLink for quite a while -- ever since the original announcement of Pascal -- but we've still not seen it put into broad use. That changes with NVIDIA's super-high-end Tesla P100, but it's still not shipping in huge quantities. What might come first is IBM's newest Linux-based servers, which also employ the use of NVLink for accelerated AI and deep-learning research. As you might suspect with the use of NVLink, IBM's latest Linux servers are GPU-focused, and because of that, IBM says that they can offer up to 80% better performance-per-dollar than solely x86-based...

After launch its high-end GeForce GTX 1080 enthusiast-class GPU earlier this summer, NVIDIA has been quick to flesh out its Pascal family from top to bottom. Slotting in above the GTX 1080, we’ve seen the release of a new Titan X. Coming in below, NVIDIA launched the GTX 1070 and the GTX 1060 (in both 3GB and 6GB versions). Now NVIDIA is ready to take the Pascal family deeper into entry-level territory with the GeForce GTX 1050. Still based on a 16nm FinFET manufacturing process, the GTX 1050 has just 768 CUDA cores compared to 1152 for the GTX 1060 (3GB) and a staggering 3584 or the Titan X. Base... Read more...
IFA 2016 is not the only hub for announcements this week. Baidu CEO Robin Li and NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang at the Baidu World Conference today in Beijing announced that together they will create a cloud-to-car autonomous car platform. Baidu will bring its cloud platform and mapping technology while NVIDIA will incorporate its self-driving computing platform for HD maps, Level 3 autonomous vehicle control, and automated parking. The ultimate goal is to making driving safer. Baidu and NVIDIA hope to significantly reduce traffic fatalities and make driving more readily available.Jen-Hsun Huang remarked,... Read more...
If refresh rate matters a lot to you in gaming, then you might want to pay attention to the brand-new S2417DG from Dell: a monitor spec'd at 165Hz. Well, as long as you're willing to cough up for a graphics card that can reliably deliver 165 FPS in your games! As its model name suggests, the S2417DG is a 24-inch monitor, so for many, that might not be ideal - especially in an age where 4K and ultrawide monitors are sought after. But for those who are fine with 1440p, this monitor can help deliver ridiculously smooth gameplay, especially games that are not incredibly demanding, like Counter-Strike:... Read more...
NVIDIA hit a lot of high notes with the Pascal-based GeForce GTX 1080. When the Founder’s Edition launched earlier this summer, it received accolades for its excellent performance, power efficiency, and host of new features. If you’d like a refresher on what’s new in NVIDIA’s Pascal architecture and see what makes the GeForce GTX 1080 Founder’s Edition tick, we’d strongly suggest checking our launch coverage. We’ve got the full scoop laid out for you there.As HOT as the GeForce GTX 1080 Founder’s Edition is, we were eager to see what NVIDIA’s board partners would do with the GTX 1080. The GP104...

In the gaming industry, it's not uncommon to hear about cases where one developer clips code from another. We've even seen it happen on Steam's Greenlight service, where some smaller developers churn out a quick game and "borrow" assets from other established games. It's not often though that we hear about this kind of thing involving a major OEM, like NVIDIA, for instance. Alongside the launch of its first Pascal-based GPUs, NVIDIA released an advanced screen-capture tool called Ansel. With it, players can effectively pause a supported game, and then manipulate the view in free-cam mode. From... Read more...
It seems as though computers have taken over more and more aspects of our driving experience in recent years. Many of the advanced features are being introduced to improve safety; meaning that you can find many mainstream and luxury vehicles that offer adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, cross-traffic alert, emergency braking, and even auto parking functionality. But the holy grail is of course fully autonomous driving. Google is perhaps the leader in this arena with its fleet of self-driving Toyota and Lexus hybrids. Tesla is the closest to providing this functionality to regular consumers... Read more...
