We reported over the weekend that a few different vendors have been teasing their upcoming GeForce GTX 1060 models, which for an unreleased card is quite interesting, but it has helped increase the momentum of NVIDIA's hype train. Now, ZOTAC has decided to get in on the action by announcing its own models that are going to cater to those with SFF builds: two ITX versions of the GeForce GTX 1060. Unfortunately, ZOTAC hasn't been able to actually show us what its ITX models look like yet, but an example of what the company's GeForce GTX 960 ITX edition looked like last generation can be seen below....

NVIDIA’s has yet to make an official announcement, however this past weekend Swedish gaming notebook manufacturer IVY listed their new notebooks as powered by NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1080M. The key feature of the GeForce GTX 1080M is the 8GB of video memory which spells higher resolution textures and screens. While the mobile GeForce GTX 1080M is undeniably slower than the desktop version, it looks like it will be giving the desktop GTX 980’s a run for their money. The GeForce GTX 980 featured 2048 CUDA cores, a base clock of 1126 MHz, a boost clock of 1216 MHz, and a total memory bandwidth of... Read more...
Building your own computer can be an extremely satisfying experience, but that doesn't mean that anyone has to shrug off potential improvements that would make that experience even smoother, right? Have you ever wanted to, for example, make the motherboard and graphics card into a single unit? If you didn't, the folks at Colorful did, and the result is one of the least colorful motherboards out there, the B150-GP104: To accommodate such a powerful graphics card into a motherboard design, Colorful had to make some obvious tweaks to the overall design. Gone are full-sized PCIe slots, for example.... Read more...
NVIDIA's latest and greatest GeForce card, GTX 1080, is set to drop on the 27th. Leading up to that date, we're seeing a bunch of vendors show off their special designs in advance. We often don't get these sneak peaks before market availability, but as we can see, even if we do, there might be some details still held back. Case in point: inno3D. This Asian-based GeForce vendor has a new cooler coming called iChiLL, which will be available in two different flavors: iChiLL X3, and iChiLL X4. While inno3D is revealing what makes its iChiLL so good, it stops short of showing us what the actual card... Read more...
A couple of weeks back, at a packed event in Austin, Texas filled with tech press and attendees from the DreamHack gaming event that took place up the road, NVIDIA CEO Jen Hsun-Huang unveiled the company’s newest graphics cards, the GeForce GTX 1080 and GeForce GTX 1070. These latest flagships represent a true generational leap in performance and efficiency, thanks to NVIDIA's new Pascal GPU architecture at their core and the bleeding-edge 16nm FinFET + VLSI manufacturing processes used to produce the chips. For the last few years, virtually all of the discrete GPUs being produced used... Read more...
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 - Faster Than Titan X For Half The Cost, Faster Than 2x GTX 980 Tonight at an event in Austin, Texas, NVIDIA unveiled its highly anticipated next-generation, Pascal-based GeForce graphics cards, known as the GeForce GTX 1080 and GeForce GTX 1070. NVIDIA’s Pascal architecture is based on 16nm FinFET technology, similar to that of NVIDIA’s high end data center Tesla P100 processing engine, but the GeForce cards are targeted at the consumer gaming market. NVIDIA’s GP104 GPU at the heart of the new GeForce cards is comprised of some 8 billion transistors and features a... Read more...
There's been a ridiculous amount of hype surrounding NVIDIA's upcoming GeForce series, which is based on the Pascal architecture. At the company's recent GPU Technology Conference, we learned that the first shipping Pascal card is the ultra-powerful Tesla P100. While that card is designed strictly for compute purposes (there are no video outputs), we're sure to see a GeForce that will match the P100 in terms of specs. If so, that means we could see a card that's theoretically twice as fast as the GeForce TITAN X without having to go the dual-GPU route. Well, the rumors surrounding the new card... Read more...
With the Oculus Rift, HTC's Vive and Sony's PlayStation VR soon to hit the market, we're about to enter the modern era of Virtual Reality. We've been talking a lot about various solutions over the past couple of months, as well as other things related to the VR ecosystem. A consistent message we've heard is that to enjoy VR to its fullest on the PC, a powerful system is going to be needed, especially with respect to graphics. As unfortunate as it might be, VR workload is taxing on a system and generally requires more expensive hardware under the hood, in addition to the cost of VR kit with its... Read more...
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...
