For the past 3.5 years or so, NVIDIA has ardently advocated the GPU as a computational platform capable of solving almost any problem. One topic the company hasn't targeted, however, is the tremendous performance advantage the GPU could offer malware authors. The idea that a graphics card could double as a security hole isn't something we've heard before, but according to a paper by Giorgos Vasiliadis, Michalis Polychronakis and Sotiris Ionnidis, it's an attack vector whose popularity could boom in coming years. The trio argues that all the computational hardware that makes the GPU such an ideal... Read more...

Hexus.net has its own review on some single card matchups, Over at Legit Reviews, Nathan Kirsch goes into some detail on NVIDIA's target market for the GTS 450, and tests a few games other sites didn't. If you're curious about numbers for Batman: Arkham Asylum, Stalker: Call of Pripyat, or FurMark 1.8.2,... Read more...
Zotac's GeForce GTX 480 Amp! Edition was designed to address some of the issues found in NVIDIA’s reference design. One look and it's easy to see that this is an extreme graphics card, made for hardcore enthusiasts. What makes us say that? With a core frequency of 756MHz, 1512MHz shaders, and 950MHz memory, this is the fastest GTX 480 on the market currently. And the preinstalled, triple slot Zalman VF3000 cooler also makes it one of the largest cards you can buy. Nevertheless, it’s obvious to us that Zotac made no compromises in designing this bad boy, which caters to hardcore gamers... Read more...
By now, we all know that NVIDIA's flagship GeForce GTX 480 is a powerful graphics card. For most systems, it provides a lot more GPU muscle than is even necessary, but that's OK with us. We're sure there are many enthusiasts out there that consider overkill a good thing. Unfortunately, the card in its reference form is not perfect and has its own set of flaws that might turn off some consumers, namely excessive heat and noise. Roughly $500 is a lot of money to spend on a single PC component. And if a product commands such a high price, any perceived drawbacks can be a tough pill to swallow. Without... Read more...
It looks like it is going to be possible to incorporate dual GF100 GPUs on a single PCB. At least, that's what the folks over at Galaxy Tech are dreaming up and we got a glimpse of it during Computex 2010. With the heat output and power requirements of NVIDIA's GF100 graphics chip, a lot of us were skeptical there would ever be a dual GPU version of Fermi. Imagine our surprise when this thing came out of nowhere during our tour of Galaxy's booth. The card we saw was home to a duo of GF100 GPUs sharing a single PCB, it measured approximately 12" long, and featured two 8-pin PCIe power connectors,... Read more...
For better or worse, the launch of NVIDIA's next-generation GPU architecture codenamed Fermi, a.k.a. GF100, is one of the most highly anticipated in our industry, ever. Information about the GPU has been tricking out for many months now, some of it good and some bad. Regardless of what you have chosen to believe or ignore up to this point, one irrefutable fact remains. NVIDIA is extremely late to the DirectX-11 party. There are no ifs, ands, or buts about it. Rival AMD has used the last few months to release a myriad of DX11-class cards ranging in price from under $100 to almost $700, fleshing... Read more...

We just saw a very interesting, very specific post go up on the official NVIDIA Facebook page. It appears the company's highly anticipated, initial line-up of GF100 based graphics cards will be launching on March 26, 2010. Here's exactly what NVIDIA had to say..."NVIDIA We want to apologize for the confusion around our most recent GF100 update. To clarify, the launch date for GeForce GTX 480 and GTX 470 is March 26, 2010. This date also coincides with the GeForce LAN event NVIDIA is hosting at PAX 2010. Hope you can attend the show.

Back in late September of last year, NVIDIA disclosed some information regarding its next generation GPU architecture, codenamed "Fermi". At the time, actual product names and detailed specifications were not disclosed, nor was performance in 3D games, but high-level information about the architecture, its strong focus on compute performance, and broader compatibility with computational applications were discussed. We covered much of the early information regarding Fermi in this article. Just to recap some of the more pertinent details found there, the GPU codenamed Fermi will feature over 3 billion...

Some of the most impressive booths at CES 2010 used walls of screens that were spanned and combined to display one scene. The experience is similar to walking into Best Buy and standing in the middle of the TV section while surrounded with LCDs and Plasmas, but perhaps on a grander scale. While companies have been using this tactic for years in order to leave a lasting impression on consumers, gamers are now able to make use of multiple screens in order to maximize the adventure. Without a doubt, multi-panel gaming is the hottest ticket in the enthusiast scene. While ATI's Eyefinity has been... Read more...

The night before the first day of CES is typically filled with numerous parties and pre-show expos loaded with hot new products and technologies. We attended one such event last night, Digital Experience, where a number of major players were peddling their wares. While at the event, we got to see a real-live NVIDIA Fermi-based graphics card installed in a Maingear demo system, a handful of slick new notebooks, netbooks, and smartbooks from Lenovo, and even played with a Nexus One--among other things. Take a look... Digital Experience 2010: NVIDIA GF100, Thinkpad Edge, Nexus One and More What Happens... Read more...
