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...

Virtual Reality (VR) is the “next big thing” in the gaming arena, and MSI is delving into the market feet first with the world’s first VR backpack. Dubbed the VR One, MSI bills the device as the thinnest and lightest backpack PC system ever made. While VR systems like the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift traditionally leave you tethered to your desktop (or laptop) with wires, the VR One gives you complete freedom to walk around and fully interact with your virtual environment with ease. MSI describes the VR One as having a “futuristic robot machine style” and we won’t disagree with that assertion. If you’ve... Read more...
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...
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...
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...
The folks at NVIDIA have gone and done a bad thing. By building mobile versions of Pascal, they've went and rendered all of us with a previous generation gaming laptop suddenly feeling inadequate with our hardware and wanting for an upgrade. Seriously, check out these benchmarks we ran. The good news is notebook makers are starting to roll out laptops based on NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 10 series GPU, including MSI, which is excited as we are about Pascal. "NVIDIA’s GTX 10 Series GPU ushers a new era of mobile gaming where mind-blowing visual performance is no longer restricted to desktops, and VR is... Read more...
NVIDIA's new Pascal GPU architecture has been taking the PC graphics market by storm since its introduction in early May. The leading-edge semiconductor powerhouse, in addition to lighting up pixels, has been burning up its balance sheets as well, with strong sales of GeForce, Quadro and Tesla product lines driving record revenues and a brisk uptick in the company stock price. For NVIDIA's core gamer customer base, the GeForce GTX 1080 and 1070 kicked-off the Pascal party, followed by the introduction of the more mid-range GeForce GTX 1060, and then finally the monstrous NVIDIA Titan X. With the... Read more...
Life is good for NVIDIA. The GPU maker reported record revenue of $1.43 billion for the second quarter ended July 31, 2016, up an impressive 24 percent from $1.15 billion a year earlier and a gain of 9 percent sequentially from $1.30 billion in the previous quarter. After paying the bills, NVIDIA was left with a profit of $253 million for the quarter, up a mind boggling 873 percent year-over-year and 29 percent from a quarter ago. "Strong demand for our new Pascal-generation GPUs and surging interest in deep learning drove record results," said Jen-Hsun Huang, co-founder and chief executive officer,... Read more...
Graphics chip maker NVIDIA has agreed to a preliminary settlement in a class-action lawsuit over the marketing and sale of its GeForce GTX 970 graphics cards, which it advertised as having 4GB of onboard GDDR5 memory. The settlement includes a total of 15 consumer class action lawsuits that were consolidated in Northern California, along with pending action in San Diego. Settlement documents reveal that NVIDIA will pay each buyer of a GeForce GTX 970 graphics card $30, plus an additional $1.3 million towards attorney fees. As part of the settlement, NVIDIA denies all allegations of wrongdoing.... Read more...
If you're into graphics technology, you've probably run out of rags at this point to wipe up your drool with. NVIDIA kicked things off by introducing Pascal with its bodacious GeForce GTX 1080 graphics card and it's only slightly less impressive sibling, the GeForce GTX 1070, followed by a new Titan X card. And over on the workstation side, there's the recently announced Quadro P6000, the most beastly of them all, and an unannounced mobile Quadro GPU based on Pascal.While wandering the expo floor at SIGGRAPH 2016, the folks at Fudzilla came across laptop on a table connected to an external display....
