Earlier this week, NVIDIA came out of absolutely nowhere with an announcement of a new top-end TITAN X, following-up to the Pascal-based TITAN X released (also out of nowhere) last summer. This new TITAN X, somewhat confusingly called TITAN Xp, offers more CUDA cores and faster memory than the previous gen Titan X for the same $1,200 USD price tag. It's also of course faster than a GeForce GTX 1080 Ti. Regardless, if you happened to have been in the market for such a luxury, then this announcement came at just the right time. Based on the TITAN Xp's specs, and what we know of the GeForce... Read more...
In addition to having just launched the fastest gaming graphics card ever, in the form of the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, NVIDIA has also dropped a new driver that's useful for all GeForce owners. Performance is the biggest name of game with the GeForce 378.78 drivers, but that's not all that's bundled. Those who have been craving for improved DirectX 12 performance will no doubt be pleased: there are gains to be seen all over the place. In Ashes of the Singularity, NVIDIA states that this driver brings a 9% performance boost, and in Hitman, that grows to a staggering 23%. Not all boosts are quite so... 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...
Self-driving cars are all the rage  (road rage perhaps?) at the moment and of course NVIDIA has already jumped on the self-driving bandwagon with an entire suite of Drive PX 2-based products that employ the company's processors to power the brains of the operation. To further expand on the company's goals, NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang has stated that he envisions vehicles with artificial intelligence that would mold to each individuals’ preferences. Huang recently spoke at an event alongside other tech titans including, Facebook’s Sheryl Sandberg, Microsoft’s Satya Nadella and Netflix’s Reed... Read more...
It has been widely expected for the past two months that NVIDIA would be releasing a new lower-end graphics card based on its Pascal architecture, and after a few leaks and a lot of rumors, the company finally coughed up the confirmation last week. This release will be a bit of a one-two punch for NVIDIA, as it'll be tackling AMD's Radeon RX 460 and 470 series head-on with its GeForce GTX 1050 Ti, and it also fills an even lower tier with its GTX 1050. The GTX 1050 Ti should prove to be a great 1080p gaming card, with some potential for 1440p gaming in certain titles (most likely MOBA-esque). With... Read more...
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...
