If history tells us anything, it is that NVIDIA will eventually release a GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics card. There were rumors that it would make a debut at the Consumer Electronics Show, but that event has now come and went. While that is mildly disappointing, do not be too bummed out about it—apparently NVIDIA is still planning to launch the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, which will be available around PAX East 2017.That is not confirmed, of course. However, here is what we know. NVIDIA posted a job listing last month for a Senior Marketing Manager and outlined some very specific duties the chosen candidate... Read more...
There was a point in time when NVIDIA was at least considering the release of a second generation SHIELD Portable device. We know this because a filing with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) that is stuffed with pictures has been made public. NVIDIA submitted the filing around the middle of last year with a short-term confidentiality request that is good for 180 days, and with that now having expired the filing has been making the rounds on the web.Given that NVIDIA recently announced an upgraded SHIELD TV set-top box with support for 4K and High Dynamic Range (HDR) but made no mention...

The annual Consumer Electronics Show – CES – is typically chock full of bleeding-edge technology. Numerous companies take advantage of CES as the backdrop to launch or announce new products, and this year's CES 2017 was no exception. But for every killer piece of technology shown off at CES, there are a dozens of chintzy unmentionables that fill the millions of square feet that comprise the show's multiple venues. The Las Vegas Convention center and virtually all of the surrounding upscale hotels and resorts are packed to gills with CES-related tech products every year. It can be tough... Read more...
NVIDIA is bringing its cloud-based GeForce Now game service to PCs and Macs, the company announced at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. Previously exclusive to Shield device owners, it was only a matter of time before NVIDIA invited PC gamers to the fold, many of which lack the necessary hardware to play high-end titles. That is what NVIDIA is banking on, anyway. GeForce Now is powered by NVIDIA's mighty Pascal architecture, and specifically its GeForce GTX 1060 and GTX 1080 graphics cards, which have been outfitted in the company's cloud data centers. When gamers register for GeForce... Read more...
NVIDIA tonight announced the next generation of the Shield TV console. For those that have been following the ever-evolving Shield TV, it is a hub for gaming and video streaming. Most recently, the Shield TV was updated to function as a Plex Media Server. The newest model, however, now has full support for 4K HDR streaming from both Netflix and Amazon Video. According to NVIDA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang, the new Shield TV has three times the compute performance of existing streamers on the market, but that’s not all. NVIDIA has updated the design of the console, and now bundles in both the remote and the... Read more...
NVIDIA’s Pascal architecture has been wildly successful in the consumer space. The various GPUs that power the GeForce GTX 10 series are all highly competitive at their respective price points, and the higher-end variants are currently unmatched by any single competing GPU. That may change when AMD launches GPUs based on its next-generation Vega architecture, but that won’t happen for a few more months, so cards like the GeForce GTX 1080 and TITAN X will continue to dominate benchmark charts at least for a little while longer. NVIDIA has since retooled Pascal for the professional workstation market... Read more...
Is your PC in need of a good refresh for improved gaming performance? If so, and you happen to live in Latin America, NVIDIA has a kit for you. It's called the "PC Gaming Revival Kit", and it includes not only the company's mid-range GeForce GTX 1060, but other important pieces of gear as well. As we discovered at its launch, the GTX 1060 is a great graphics card at its given price point. It allows respectable gaming performance at 1440p, and excellent performance at 1080p. Plus, most models on the market can be overclocked quite heavily, so that free performance boost is only a couple of clicks... Read more...
Nintendo is planning to launch a brand new game console in just a few months, one that will attempt to bridge the gap between stationary and mobile gaming, but do not expect the new system to be faster than current generation consoles. The Switch, as it is called, is said to sport a graphics chip based on NVIDIA's previous generation Maxwell architecture and will be slower the original PlayStation 4 that Sony launched three years ago.Building a game system around Pascal might seem like the obvious choice so why didn't Nintendo go that route? Since the Switch is a hybrid console that gamers can... Read more...
NVIDIA hit a home run with its Pascal GPU architecture, which is a savory combination of performance and power efficiency. Depending on the part, there can be some impressive overclocking headroom available as well. That was certainly case when teams of overclockers armed with a GALAX GeForce GTX 1060 Hall of Fame (HOF) Edition graphics cards pushed Pascal past 3GHz, nearly doubling the card's base clock.Pascal GPUs are already some of the highest clocked graphics chips in existence. Getting to 3GHz and beyond, however, is out of reach for the average person. It requires a willing card, overclocking... Read more...
NVIDIA could sit on its laurels and do absolutely nothing but kick out driver releases for the next several months and it probably would still hold a dominate position in graphics. That is how good its Pascal architecture is, and the available graphics card options built around it. But NVIDIA is not standing still, it is moving forward and is close to releasing arguably the most exciting Pascal card to date, the much anticipated GeForce GTX 1080 Ti. No, NVIDIA has not yet announced the Ti version just yet, at least not officially and not to the public. In a way, however, it confirmed the inevitable... Read more...
NVIDIA hopes to make a huge impact in the autonomous market, as it's been vigorously promoting its Drive PX platform for the past couple of years. And while NVIDIA might not be a name most people think of when looking at the automotive realm, the company has proven itself to be more than capable of delivering market-leading solutions for digital-driven roads (the company's latest earnings report shows that it non-gaming related business operations are doing quite well). Now, the company has earned the right to strut its stuff to the world - at least in the state of California. The state's... Read more...
While it didn't seem to be a major focus of NVIDIA's when it launched the GeForce GTX 1060 6GB, the same model card also has a 3GB card available, which can be found virtually anywhere today. So how's such a card making headlines today? Because soon, according to the latest rumor, the chip inside that model will be changing. Both the 3GB and 6GB GTX 1060s launched with the GP106 architecture, not the GP104 architecture of the high-end GTX 1070 and GTX 1080. If this rumor proves true, though, the GTX 1060 3GB will begin to be built on GP104 chips that are not up to snuff for either GTX 1070 or GTX... Read more...
Rumor surrounding AMD's next high-end GPU, tentatively called the Radeon RX 490, have been floating around for a while. Admittedly, it's been extremely difficult to get a real gauge on what to expect. Some say that the RX 490 won't even match NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1070, but now, we have a benchmark that shows us that it might be just as fast as the GTX 1080. Stardock's Ashes of the Singularity became a de facto benchmark out-of-the-gate due to its use of DirectX 12, and not to mention its built-in benchmark. At the start of the month, a user named Ceaj uploaded a rather peculiar result, featuring... Read more...
NVIDIA is looking to make virtual reality (VR) experiences even more immersive and realistic (while improving performance), and it’s banking on the powerful Pascal architecture, which underpins everything from the GeForce GTX 1050 all the way up to the Titan X. Too boost its VR credentials, NVIDIA is introducing Lens Matched Shading, which is an improvement on Multi-Res Shading that was introduced with the previous generation Maxwell architecture. Lens Matched Shading is another VRWorks feature that is a further refinement of the multi-projection architecture used in Maxwell, and takes... Read more...
