If history tells us anything, it is that NVIDIA will eventually release a GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics card. There were rumors that it would make a debut at the Consumer Electronics Show, but that event has now come and went. While that is mildly disappointing, do not be too bummed out about it—apparently NVIDIA is still planning to launch the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, which will be available around PAX East 2017.That is not confirmed, of course. However, here is what we know. NVIDIA posted a job listing last month for a Senior Marketing Manager and outlined some very specific duties the chosen candidate... Read more...
There was a point in time when NVIDIA was at least considering the release of a second generation SHIELD Portable device. We know this because a filing with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) that is stuffed with pictures has been made public. NVIDIA submitted the filing around the middle of last year with a short-term confidentiality request that is good for 180 days, and with that now having expired the filing has been making the rounds on the web.Given that NVIDIA recently announced an upgraded SHIELD TV set-top box with support for 4K and High Dynamic Range (HDR) but made no mention...

The annual Consumer Electronics Show – CES – is typically chock full of bleeding-edge technology. Numerous companies take advantage of CES as the backdrop to launch or announce new products, and this year's CES 2017 was no exception. But for every killer piece of technology shown off at CES, there are a dozens of chintzy unmentionables that fill the millions of square feet that comprise the show's multiple venues. The Las Vegas Convention center and virtually all of the surrounding upscale hotels and resorts are packed to gills with CES-related tech products every year. It can be tough... Read more...
NVIDIA is bringing its cloud-based GeForce Now game service to PCs and Macs, the company announced at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. Previously exclusive to Shield device owners, it was only a matter of time before NVIDIA invited PC gamers to the fold, many of which lack the necessary hardware to play high-end titles. That is what NVIDIA is banking on, anyway. GeForce Now is powered by NVIDIA's mighty Pascal architecture, and specifically its GeForce GTX 1060 and GTX 1080 graphics cards, which have been outfitted in the company's cloud data centers. When gamers register for GeForce... Read more...
NVIDIA tonight announced the next generation of the Shield TV console. For those that have been following the ever-evolving Shield TV, it is a hub for gaming and video streaming. Most recently, the Shield TV was updated to function as a Plex Media Server. The newest model, however, now has full support for 4K HDR streaming from both Netflix and Amazon Video. According to NVIDA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang, the new Shield TV has three times the compute performance of existing streamers on the market, but that’s not all. NVIDIA has updated the design of the console, and now bundles in both the remote and the... Read more...
Gone are the days when you needed a massive desktop tower for high end performance, especially gaming (though we still have an affinity for large systems). For those who prefer power in a compact setup, there are lots of options out there, including the new VivoPC X from ASUS. Powered by one of Intel's just-announced desktop Kaby Lake processors and an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 10 series GPU, the VivoPC X packs a mean punch in a small form factor (SFF) chassis. The aggressive looking 5-liter chassis measures 2.99 x 10.23 x 11.02 inches, which is plenty small enough to slide into a home theater arrangement... Read more...
The self-driving car evolution is coming and we had better be prepared for it. Google/Alphabet has formed a new company, Waymo, which will plot a course forward for autonomous vehicle operations. The company already has a fleet of 100 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid minivans coming online, and it is currently in talks with Honda to add even more vehicles to the fray. This is in addition to Google’s existing fleet of Lexus and Toyota hybrid vehicles and efforts from other tech companies like NVIDIA, which just got authorization for testing for its Drive PX2 systems in California, various auto manufacturers...

Is your PC in need of a good refresh for improved gaming performance? If so, and you happen to live in Latin America, NVIDIA has a kit for you. It's called the "PC Gaming Revival Kit", and it includes not only the company's mid-range GeForce GTX 1060, but other important pieces of gear as well. As we discovered at its launch, the GTX 1060 is a great graphics card at its given price point. It allows respectable gaming performance at 1440p, and excellent performance at 1080p. Plus, most models on the market can be overclocked quite heavily, so that free performance boost is only a couple of clicks... Read more...
Nintendo is planning to launch a brand new game console in just a few months, one that will attempt to bridge the gap between stationary and mobile gaming, but do not expect the new system to be faster than current generation consoles. The Switch, as it is called, is said to sport a graphics chip based on NVIDIA's previous generation Maxwell architecture and will be slower the original PlayStation 4 that Sony launched three years ago.Building a game system around Pascal might seem like the obvious choice so why didn't Nintendo go that route? Since the Switch is a hybrid console that gamers can... Read more...
NVIDIA hopes to make a huge impact in the autonomous market, as it's been vigorously promoting its Drive PX platform for the past couple of years. And while NVIDIA might not be a name most people think of when looking at the automotive realm, the company has proven itself to be more than capable of delivering market-leading solutions for digital-driven roads (the company's latest earnings report shows that it non-gaming related business operations are doing quite well). Now, the company has earned the right to strut its stuff to the world - at least in the state of California. The state's... Read more...
Colorful just threw down the gauntlet on outrageously large graphics cards with a GeForce GTX 1080 model that occupies four expansion slots. Yes, we said FOUR! It needs that much space because it is lugging a liquid cooling contraption on its back to keep things extra chilly. Users can optionally detach the liquid cooling backplate, but what would be the point in buying a specialized card if the plan is to remove the very thing that makes is specialized?Called the iGame 1080 Kudan, the monster sized graphics card is equipped with three cooling fans on the front. Each one sports a gold color border... Read more...
NVIDIA is looking to make virtual reality (VR) experiences even more immersive and realistic (while improving performance), and it’s banking on the powerful Pascal architecture, which underpins everything from the GeForce GTX 1050 all the way up to the Titan X. Too boost its VR credentials, NVIDIA is introducing Lens Matched Shading, which is an improvement on Multi-Res Shading that was introduced with the previous generation Maxwell architecture. Lens Matched Shading is another VRWorks feature that is a further refinement of the multi-projection architecture used in Maxwell, and takes... Read more...
NVIDIA has been pushing its GeForce Experience application hard over the past couple of months, and for good reason. The software's name is apt -- it improves the GeForce gaming experience, which for some users could mean having the best in-game detail settings automatically determined, while for others, it could mean having a solid game-recorder tool at-the-ready, any time it is needed. NVIDIA recently piled on yet another perk to GFE -- free games. Right now, the company is giving away copies of Gears of War 4 to some gamers who simply use GeForce Experience 3.0, and are logged into the... Read more...
