We've been hearing about NVIDIA's NVLink for quite a while -- ever since the original announcement of Pascal -- but we've still not seen it put into broad use. That changes with NVIDIA's super-high-end Tesla P100, but it's still not shipping in huge quantities. What might come first is IBM's newest Linux-based servers, which also employ the use of NVLink for accelerated AI and deep-learning research. As you might suspect with the use of NVLink, IBM's latest Linux servers are GPU-focused, and because of that, IBM says that they can offer up to 80% better performance-per-dollar than solely x86-based...

If refresh rate matters a lot to you in gaming, then you might want to pay attention to the brand-new S2417DG from Dell: a monitor spec'd at 165Hz. Well, as long as you're willing to cough up for a graphics card that can reliably deliver 165 FPS in your games! As its model name suggests, the S2417DG is a 24-inch monitor, so for many, that might not be ideal - especially in an age where 4K and ultrawide monitors are sought after. But for those who are fine with 1440p, this monitor can help deliver ridiculously smooth gameplay, especially games that are not incredibly demanding, like Counter-Strike:... Read more...
One thing is for sure: if you're in the market for a new gaming notebook - especially one featuring NVIDIA's brand-new GeForce cards - you're not going to suffer from a lack of choice. We've written about a handful of different vendor notebooks so far, and not to be forgotten, Acer has finally tossed its hat into the ring. Acer hasn't produced brand-new models to support NVIDIA's latest GPUs, but instead updated its popular Predator 15 and Predator 17 notebooks. However, there is something a bit odd: Acer hasn't yet said exactly which GPUs will be featured in these models. That said, the outgoing... Read more...
Today is a massive day for gaming notebooks thanks to the launch of NVIDIA's latest mobile-bound GeForce graphics cards. As covered in our launch article, these GPUs don't feature the "M" that we've seen in years' past - these are full-blown desktop chips. That means one thing: they're powerful. Seriously powerful. As expected with any new GPU launch, a slew of vendors have today announced their latest wares, and that includes EVGA. The company announced its SC17 17-inch notebook back at CES, but at the time it shipped with the 900-series GeForce chips. Now, it's been upgraded to support the GTX... Read more...
NVIDIA has just announced that its first-ever DGX-1 deep-learning server has found a home, and it couldn't be more appropriate. That new home is with OpenAI, the world's largest non-profit artificial intelligence research agency, which is based in San Francisco. If the OpenAI name sounds familiar but you can't quite place why, it's probably because we've talked about it a couple of times before. With the help of fellow industry legends, Tesla's Elon Musk helped launch OpenAI last year with a major goal: to progress AI with the mindset that it will benefit all humankind. The integration of...

The first release candidate of the 4.8 Linux kernel has just been unleashed, which means its stable release is not too far behind. This particular version packs a serious wallop, so let's dive right in. For starters, there's some serious graphics love in 4.8, which includes initial NVIDIA Pascal support. That support relates to the open-source Nouveau driver, and is quite minimal at this point: it just adds mode-setting support. For users of Pascal-based graphics cards in Linux, NVIDIA has been offering proprietary drivers since each card's respective launch (including the new GeForce GTX 1060).... Read more...
The leaks surrounding Nintendo's upcoming NX console continue to flow. Last week, a website claimed to have received exclusive information about Nintendo's console, and depending on your perspective, it will either sound great or lackluster, if you weren't big on the Wii or Wii U. First and foremost, the biggest thing that would set the NX apart, if rumors are true, is that it'd be primarily a portable console - not portable like the PS Vita, but portable enough to pick up and walk around a house with. A TV wouldn't be removed from the equation entirely though; you'd be able to dock this portable... Read more...
There is one constant in the world of supercomputers: no one is going to be 'fastest' for long. In fact, some supercomputers can seem downright slow after only a couple of years, as hardware continues to become faster and more dense. Take for example Oak Ridge's TITAN supercomputer. Launched in 2013, this supercomputer managed to push about 20 petaFLOPs of throughput (17.59 pFLOPs LINPACK; 27 pFLOPs theoretical). At the time, that was downright mind-blowing. But consider TaihuLight, China's latest supercomputer, coming in at 93 petaFLOPs. For those who don't want to grab a calculator or exercise... 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...
It's been rumored for some time that NVIDIA had lost interest in the mobile phone business, and that's something company co-founder and CEO Jen-Hsun Huang confirmed during his company's presentation at Computex. None of this is much of a surprise, as the company's Tegra SoC hasn't found itself inside of a commercially successful smartphone, but this confirmation is a bit sobering nonetheless. NVIDIA has what it takes to create an incredible smartphone SoC, and has proven that it can even build great devices surrounding those SoCs. But at the end of the day, the ROI for that particular venture... 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...
Ever since the release of its SHIELD Android TV device last spring, NVIDIA hasn't slowed down in its attempt to bring as many hot games to the platform as possible. While many of the top-tier game releases have been tied to the company's GeForce Now streaming service, Android-native titles do come along every once in a while. In the past, we've seen NVIDIA help usher in Half-Life 2, Portal and Trine 2 on Android. Now, it brings us Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. The Pre-Sequel is the third entry in the Borderlands series, although it's more... Read more...
It has been suggested for quite some time that Intel could/should take advantage of AMD's struggling situation to make an acquisition, or at least take advantage of licensing some of its technologies. The latter thought has ramped-up again in the rumor mill, and while there's no clear path that Intel might take, it's being said that the Santa Clara company is heavily weighing its options. A decade ago, it would have been quite a historic event to see Intel work with AMD in any major way, but the landscape has shifted, and with AMD in need of more revenue streams, it now makes more sense perhaps...

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...
