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...
As we discovered in March, NVIDIA's GeForce GTX TITAN X is a seriously powerful graphics card. Under its hood are 8 billion transistors -- 50% more than the GTX 980. Despite that, it shares the same exact form-factor and reference cooler as the GTX 980. While that's sufficient enough, given that reference cooler is quite good, it does mean that TITAN X will peak at high temperatures even easier. Ironically, at the time of TITAN X's launch, EVGA released a 'Hybrid' liquid cooler for the GTX 980 - and not the TITAN X. It seemed inevitable that the TITAN X would be taken care of in time, though, and... Read more...
The Witcher 3:Wild Hunt is available today, and it’s riding a wave of positive reviews. If you’re picking the game up for PC and you have an NVIDIA graphics card, you’ll want to download the latest driver before you fire up the game. NVIDIA released a new driver update with support for the game. NVIDIA GeForce driver version 352.86 adds an SLI profile for Witcher 3. The driver also has new support for HairWorks, Magicka 2, and World of Warships. The update also features an improved SLI profile for Sid Meier’s Civilization: Beyond Earth. The Witcher series has received praise for its vast, open... Read more...
Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto series has been wildly successful for many years now, offering some of the edgiest story lines, game play tactics and objectives the gaming industry has ever seen. With psychopathic main characters, you are left in the depraved communities of Los Santos and Blaine County, to walk a path few would dare choose in real life, committing nefarious acts, robbing and pillaging to complete your objectives. In short, it's rather entertaining that you're tasked with leaving a virtual world worse off than you found it, consequences be damned. But if you're reading this, you're... Read more...
ASUS took the wraps off its ROG GR6, a tiny PC with some serious hardware. The system is meant to be your LAN party go-to or a full-time resident of a desk with limited space and it’s loaded with style. It’s also loaded with Windows 8.1 and Steam Big Picture, so can bring a controller with you to the next LAN event. The ROG GR6 feature an Intel Core i5 processor and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M graphics, as well as 8GB of memory and an SSD. It also has two USB ports on the front, as well as headphone and mic jacks. At the back, it has a lock port, additional USB and audio ports (including SPDIF), a... Read more...
A couple of weeks back at GDC, in a bit of a surprise move considering NVIDIA’s CEO Jen Hsun Huang just left the stage at the company’s own GPU Technology Conference (GTC), the GeForce GTX Titan X was unveiled. The unveiling, which took place during one of EPIC’s talks, was somewhat casual and only a couple of details were disclosed. Jen Hsun said that GeForce GTX Titan X cards featured 12GB of memory and a GPU that packed in roughly 8 billion transistors. Besides whatever we could discern from a few quick pictures, no other details were given.Today though, we can give you the full scoop.... Read more...
Last year, NVIDIA delivered GeForce GTX 980M and 970M GPUs, which offered mobile gamers a no-compromise solution in a mid- to large-size notebook form-factor. Now, NVIDIA is extending its GTX 900M series with the introduction of the GTX 960M and 950M. NVIDIA is hoping to prove that the race to deliver thin (less than one-inches thick) and light notebooks doesn’t have to mean that graphics performance has to suffer. Both the GTX 960M and 950M support DirectX 12, feature Maxwell architecture, include 640 CUDA cores, and are built on a 28nm process. However, that’s where the similarities end. The... Read more...
