We are not sure of the authenticity of this one, but over at one of Baido's Chinese-language web forums is a teardown of Nintendo's not-yet-released Switch console. If it turns out to be fake, then someone put a lot of time and effort to make it appear otherwise, as the part selection lines up with what Nintendo has revealed about the Switch. The cramped layout looks legitimate to us as well.It is also possible that these naked shots reflect a prototype design and not the final console. Either way, it's an interesting view of the system's guts.The first thing that stands out is the 4,130 mAh lithium-ion... Read more...
For close to two decades, EVGA has been producing graphics cards based on NVIDIA GPU technology. The company's current line-up consists of literally dozens of cards featuring GeForce GTX 10-series GPUs, with various clock speeds, cooler configurations, and form factors. Although the GeForce 10 series has been out for quite a while now, and EVGA already has a voluminous line-up of cards, the company isn’t done releasing new products just yet. In fact, the GeForce GTX 1080 FTW2 card featuring EVGA’s iCX technology we’ll be showing you here is arguably the company’s most extensive revamp yet.EVGA... Read more...
Things are definitely looking good over in NVIDIA land these days. Yesterday afternoon, the company announced its fiscal Q4 2017 and full-year fiscal 2017 earnings and the results were quite impressive. Revenue for the quarter shot up 55 percent to $2.17 billion compared to the same period a year ago. Likewise, full-year revenue rose 38 percent year-over-year to $6.91 billion.NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang Non-GAAP earnings per diluted share for the quarter were reported at $1.13 compared to just $0.52 a year earlier, while the full-year metric was $3.06, representing an 83 percent increase.

The same awesome architecture that powers NVIDIA's latest generation graphics cards can now be found throughout the maker's entire professional Quadro line for the desktop with top to bottom solutions. We're of course talking about Pascal, the game-changing architecture that made playing titles at a 4K resolution on a single graphics card possible. Pascal now powers half a dozen more Quadro cards that flesh out its existing lineup. Having access to Pascal on the engineering side will provide a boost in performance in several categories. VR, photo-realism, and deep learning technologies, all of... Read more...
At CES 2017, NVIDIA launched its next generation SHIELD TV, which it claims has three times the compute performance of garden variety media streamers on the market and can interface with the Google Assistant. In addition, the new SHIELD TV has support for Spot, which are tiny microphone-equipped devices that you can scatter throughout your house (similar in concept to the Amazon Echo Dot). The new NVIDIA Shield TV is also running Shield Experience Upgrade 5.0. Thankfully, NVIDIA hasn’t forgotten about existing Shield TV owners, as it today announced that Shield Experience Upgrade 5.0, which is... Read more...
One of the biggest moments in the history of 3D graphics is when NVIDIA released its Pascal architecture last year. The generational leap in graphics performance lived up to the hype with higher end parts negating the need to run multiple graphics cards in SLI for consistently smooth gaming at 4K. But while Pascal has barely had time to stretch its legs, NVIDIA is already looking ahead to its next GPU architecture, Volta, which may release later this year. Rumor has it that NVIDIA has tapped TSMC to build Volta GPUs on a 12-nanometer FinFET manufacturing process. It is a loose rumor—basically a... Read more...
In case you haven’t noticed, the PC gaming market is exploding. As we reported in the closing days of 2016, PC gaming software sales reached nearly $36 billion ($35.8 billion to be exact) during 2016, compared to just $6.6 billion for console game sales. Neither was able to touch mobile gaming revenues, however, which hit $40.6 billion during the full year of 2016. Now, Jon Peddie Research (JPR) offers a report on PC gaming hardware sales for 2016, and they likewise hit a record high. Hardware sales surged past the $30 billion mark for the first time ever, topping out at $30.6 billion. In... Read more...
If you have been looking for a new media streamer, now may be the time to take the plunge. The Android-based SHIELD TV is now available for pre-order and NVIDIA claims that it “delivers unmatched experiences in streaming, gaming and AI”.NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang remarked, “SHIELD TV is the world’s most advanced streamer.

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...
