Although the names, or more specifically the acronyms, for some of the new technologies NVIDIA is unveiling today leaked out recently, details on what they offered gamers and how they worked were scarce. At the Game Developers Conference currently underway in San Francisco, however, NVIDIA officially took the wraps of some new graphics techniques for shadows and lighting – dubbed Hybrid Frustum Traced Shadows (HFTS), NVIDIA Volumetric Lighting, and Voxel Accelerated Ambient Occlusion (VXAO) – which can drastically improve in-game image quality. And the features are already being leverages in a... Read more...
NVIDIA hit it out of the park with its fourth quarter earnings, that the company reported this afternoon. The silicon valley graphics and system-on-a-chip titan outpaced last year’s already strong performance with revenue of $1.4 billion (a 12 percent increase from the same quarter a year ago). Net income came in at $297 million, or 35 cents per share. NVDA's full fiscal year 2016 was reported at $5.01 billion, which was a 7 percent increase over fiscal 2015. The company’s quarterly performance far outpaced analysts’ expectations and NVIDIA was rewarded with a 7 percent share boost in after hours... Read more...
Capcom's hugely anticipated follow-up to Street Fighter IV has arrived today, coming to us in the form of an aptly-named Street Fighter V. Interestingly, this major iteration in the iconic fighting series isn't available to Xbox gamers, but is for those rocking a PlayStation 4 or gaming PC. On the topic of the latter, NVIDIA has chimed in to tell us that the PC version is the best version. With the brand-new GeForce 361.91 WHQL driver, NVIDIA yet again delivers an on-time "Game Ready" driver for a new major release. Despite NVIDIA's support of the game, this driver doesn't tie into NVIDIA-specific... Read more...
EVGA set up shop in a swank suite at the Bellagio Hotel a short distance away from the craziness of the Las Vegas Convention Center, to display its latest products to CES attendees. As you’d expect, EVGA had a wide array of motherboards and NVIDIA GPU-based graphics cards on hand, including a custom GeForce GTX 980 Ti geared for the upcoming wave of VR gear, but the company also revealed some upcoming products that have nothing to do with graphics.     Some of EVGA’s high-end, custom GeForce GTX cards were displayed in a glass case, with a trio of EVGA’s custom SLI bridges...

It’s been quite some time since we last looked at an all-in-one PC. Although there is clearly a niche market for AiOs, the product segment has always kept a consistent rythm in all facets of computing - consumer, enterprise and SMB. These types of systems appeal to style-conscious users and businesses that need computing utility with good looks, that blends in and stays out of the way. And though many are not powerhouses, a few do catch our enthusiast eye, and one of those few is the Asus Zen AiO Pro Z240IC, which Asus is billing as “The pinnacle of Windows all-in-one PCs.”That may be a stretch...

Considering the fact that there have been a number of great games released these past few months, and that we're in the midst of the biggest buying season of the year, there's no better time than right now for hardware vendors to begin dropping prices on their kit, paving the way for new product next year.NVIDIA appears to be one such company jumping in on this action before the new month gets here, as a slew of its current model graphics cards are beginning to be treated to subtle or not-so subtle price drops at both Amazon and Newegg. The company's top-dog GeForce TITAN X has not been discounted... Read more...
We talked just yesterday about the various configurations that exist for Microsoft's Surface Book, including the mammoth $3,199 model that boasts 1TB of solid-state storage. Despite all we know about these offerings, though, there are some details both Microsoft and its component vendors are keeping mum on. Such as the GPU model included. Well, thanks to a reddit user who spotted a Surface Book in store, and was able to get online and download some diagnostic tools, we now have that answered. Right off the bat, we can tell that this is not a very high-end GPU, and that's something I doubt anyone... Read more...
Although the $999 GeForce GTX Titan X is currently the King of the single-GPU hill, NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 980 Ti is the far more palatable option for most hardcore enthusiasts, due to its lower $649 starting price point. As we showed you in our initial coverage of the GeForce GTX 980 Ti, however, the card is still a monster in terms of performance. It typically outpaces AMD’s flagship Radeon R9 Fury X (at least with DX11 titles) and it finishes only a few percentage points behind the much pricier Titan X.NVIDIA’s partners have also taken the GeForce GTX 980 Ti and morphed it into something even...

NVIDIA’s power-efficient Maxwell GPU architecture is a perfect fit for the notebook market, as evidenced by the slew of strong products up and down the company’s mobile GPU line-up. But today NVIDIA is taking things is a slightly different direction at the ultra-high-end, and introducing a “new” mobile GPU, that’s not really a mobile part—the GeForce GTX 980. Notice, there’s no “M” on the end of that model number. NVIDIA is betting that the enthusiasts which are most likely to buy a notebook with a GeForce GTX 980 in it are savvy enough to understand the difference. Through some careful binning... Read more...
We already know a lot about the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960. In our launch coverage of the GPU we noted, “The GeForce GTX 960’s low-power characteristics, beefed up video engine, and overclocking headroom, in addition to support for technologies like NVIDIA’s Voxel Global Illumination (VXGI), Multi-Frame sampled AA (MFAA), Dynamic Super Resolution (DSR), and DX12,l make the card a compelling choice.” The GTX 960 is an excellent choice for MOBA gamers or gamers running single displays at resolution of 1080P, or below but at high image quality settings.The GeForce GTX 960 also happens to be a very power...

If some recent rumors are to be believed, high-end gaming notebooks are poised to get a serious dose of graphics horsepower later this year when Nvidia's powerful GTX 990M hits the streets by September.  The origin of the rumor is Chinese manufacturer Hasee -- specifically their CEO Wu Haijun -- who revealed the mobile graphics card during a company livestream. Not only did he out the GPU, he also hinted that the GTX 990M would be capable of delivering graphics eye candy equivalent to GTX 980 SLI. Yep, as much as a pair of Nvidia's current flagship mobile cards.  How does a 980M SLI configuration... Read more...
The highly anticipated Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is set to land on September 15th for PCs (it launches on September 2 for the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One). For those PC gamers looking to pickup the game, you’ll be glad to know that NVIDIA is now bundling Metal Gear Solid V for free with the purchase of select GeForce GTX GPUs. To take advantage of this freebie, you’ll need to purchase a qualifying GeForce GTX 980 Ti, 980, 970, or 960 GPU. In addition, those that purchase a gaming notebooks with a GeForce GTX 980M or 970M will also be eligible for the promotion. NVIDIA’s previous... Read more...
When NVIDIA launched the GeForce GTX Titan X a few weeks back, it did a couple of things. In addition to releasing the fastest single-GPU-powered graphics card we have seen to date, it also created a huge gap in NVIDIA’s desktop GPU line-up. The GeForce GTX 980 can be had for about $530 give or take a few bucks (though that will be changing after today). The GeForce GTX Titan X, however, landed at a cool $1000. That’s a big price gap to leave empty. Consider the Titan X’s massive 12GB of memory and the fact that its GPU leverages all available resources of the GM200 design, and it becomes obvious...

We were first given a taste of NVIDIA G-SYNC technology over a year and a half ago and it was definitely quite a sweet dish. Like competing solutions from AMD (FreeSync), G-SYNC aims to rid gamers of synchronization-related maladies like VSync input lag, stuttering and screen tearing, providing instead a buttery smooth gaming experience. For an in-depth look at G-SYNC, you can take a look at Marco’s excellent article about the technology right here. Up until this point, G-SYNC has been solely aimed at desktop gamers, but NVIDIA today is extending its reach by bringing a new implementation... Read more...
