NVIDIA is launching an all-out assault on AMD in the PC graphics segment. In May, NVIDIA released the new graphics king: the GeForce GTX 1080. The company followed up on that beastly chip in June with slightly cut down GeForce GTX 1070. That trickledown effect is now reaching the mainstream market with the arrival of the GeForce GTX 1060. The GTX 1060 can be seen as a direct response to the AMD Radeon RX 480, which offers a ton of performance at the $200 price point. While still built using a 16nm FinFET process, the GP106 core on the GTX 1060 features 1280 CUDA cores; exactly half that of the... Read more...
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you probably already know that the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 is the new king of the hill in the graphics card arena. Based on a 16nm FinFET + VLSI manufacturing process, the Pascal-based GPU at the heart of the GTX 1080 packs four graphics processing clusters, 2560 CUDA cores, and has peak compute performance of around 8.2 TFLOPs. However, NVIDIA has an even more impressive beast that it is expected to unleash at Gamescom. And this snarling graphics menace is thought to bring balls-to-the-wall performance that will make even new GeForce GTX 1080 owners blush.... Read more...
We first brought you news about NVIDIA’s SHIELD Experience Upgrade 3.2 back in May, and the company just started pushing the update out to customers this week. As we’ve reported in the past, the SHIELD Experience Upgrade 3.2 brings with it a number of new features including YouTube 4K60 playback and support for HDR videos in the Netflix app. Other niceties include new available apps like VUDU (also with support for 4K), Spotify, WatchESPN, Disney Channel, Disney Junior, CNN Go, and Comedy Central. You’ll also find Dolby Atmos surround sound pass-through, drag-and-drop file sharing with Macs and... Read more...
Futuremark is working on an update to its popular 3DMark benchmarking suite that will test the DirectX 12 capabilities of your gaming system. Called Time Spy, the new benchmark sports a "pure DirectX 12 engine" that was built  from scratch to support the new features of DX12, including asynchronous compute, explicit mulit-adapater, and of course multi-threading. In anticipation of the new benchmark, Futuremark released a teaser trailer that's just over a minute long. Futuremark says it provides a "glimpse of gaming's future while revisiting classic 3DMark scenes from the past" and challenges... Read more...
When NVIDIA announced the new GeForce GTX 1080 and GeForce GTX 1070 graphics cards last month, the company introduced an update to its SLI interface. Dubbed SLI HB Bridge, it offers double the bandwidth compared to the previous generation Maxwell architecture. This enables 2560x1440 gaming at 120+ Hz along with support for 4K/5K gaming and NVIDIA Surround. And as we’ve previously detailed, the SLI HB Bridge operates at 650MHz as opposed to 400MHz with previous SLI bridges. With this in mind, EVGA has some up with its own SLI HB Bridge for gamers looking to boost performance at higher resolutions... Read more...
Remember that scene when Al Pacino playing the part of Scarface famously said, "Say hello to my little friend!"? Well now NVIDIA is bringing out the big gun in PCI Express form in what it considers the "most advanced data center GPU ever built," the Tesla P100, a crazy fast GPU accelerator based on NVIDIA's powerful Pascal architecture built on a 16nm FinFET manufacturing process. This is the second iteration of the Tesla P100, the first of which NVIDIA unveiled during GTX 2016 a couple of months ago. Though it's built on a fancy 16nm FinFET process, the GP100 GPU inside the Tesla P100 is quite... Read more...
In case you haven’t already noticed, we’re pretty big fans of the NVIDIA SHIELD. The Tegra X1-powered console runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow and is part media streamer and part gaming box. And thankfully, NVIDIA has been very adamant about keeping the SHIELD fresh over its lifetime with a bevy of updates. Last month, we brought you news that NVIDIA’s SHIELD Experience Upgrade 3.2 would bring some niceties like 4K VUDU content, in-app voice search and HDR support for the Netflix app, 4K support for the YouTube app, and the enabling of HDR GameStream for use with Pascal graphics cards. But what NVIDIA... Read more...
The powerful GeForce GTX 1080 got the lion’s share of media attention immediately following NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang’s official unveiling at an event in Austin, Texas a couple of weeks back. But its little brother, the GeForce GTX 1070, was also mentioned along with its expected price point, which just happened to be far more attainable for most PC enthusiasts. Better yet, the GeForce GTX 1070 would reportedly offer “Titan X class performance”, which is particularly impressive, given the 1070’s sub-$400 asking price of partner-built boards. Like the 1080, the GTX 1070 Founder's Edition... Read more...
It's fair to say that a lot gamers had May 27 circled on their calendars. That's the day NVIDIA said its beastly GeForce GTX 1080 graphics card would be available to purchase, and considering the price to performance ratio, high demand was inevitable. Unfortunately, limited inventories have led to price gouging, which is what third-party sellers are doing on Amazon. The GeForce GTX 1080 is supposed to retail for $699 for Founders Edition SKUs, a fancy title for what are cards that follow NVIDIA's reference blueprint. Other versions are supposed to start at $599. However, if you head over to Amazon... Read more...
It seems as though everyone and their grandma is releasing new GeForce GTX 1080 graphics cards today, and MSI is no exception. The company has no less than six new GeForce GTX 1080 cards on tap, and any one of them would be a worthy addition to your gaming rig. For starters, you should know that all six cards are built using the same Pascal base, which means you’ll get 2,560 CUDA cores and 8GB of GDDR5X memory running on a 256-bit bus. In its base configuration, the GeForce GTX 1080 has a base clock of 1697 MHz and a boost clock of 1733 MHz. The MSI GeForce GTX 1080 GAMING X 8 uses a new TWIN FROZR... Read more...
As if we needed more reasons to fall in lust with NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1080 graphics card, the GPU maker's hardware partners have begun releasing custom variants that up the ante with more aggressive aesthetics, superior cooling, and faster clockspeeds. We saw it yesterday with EVGA's GeForce GTX 1080 Superclocked ACX 3.0 Edition, and now ASUS and Zotac are following suit with custom designed Pascal parts of their own.We'll start with ASUS, which tapped its Republic of Gamers division to construct the ROG Strix GTX 1080. ASUS considers it "the new king of the hill," and though its competitors might... Read more...
Nintendo's been remarkably tight lipped about its next generation NX game console, speaking up about it on occasion only to remind people it is in fact coming, and to throw cold water on rumors. Otherwise it's been almost all speculation up to this point, save for some supposedly inside information saying it will run on NVIDIA hardware. Short and to the point, Nintendo insider Emily Rogers (Arcade Girl) told NeoGAF's NateDrake, "NVIDIA is involved with Nintendo's future hardware." She didn't say to what extent, but the easy assumption is that NVIDIA will power the NX's graphics, which could be... Read more...
It’s been nearly a year since NVIDIA first launched its Tegra X1-powered SHIELD console. Since that time, SHIELD has been upgraded to Android 6.0 Marshmallow and received nearly a dozen software updates and features enhancement to keep it up to date. But as its first birthday rolls around, NVIDIA is ready to drop some new software goodness on SHIELD owners. NVIDIA will soon be releasing SHIELD Experience Upgrade 3.2, which will bring with it (among other things) support for the VUDU app. In fact, SHIELD will be the only Android TV device to support the VUDU app and the 4K content library that it...

NVIDIA today introduced a new graphics card option for its GRID virtual desktop platform. It's the Tesla M10 and it's intended to make it more affordable for businesses to deliver virtualized desktops to all of their employees through a subscription model that starts at just $2 per user, per month (when signing up with a 3-year plan). The pitch from NVIDIA is that business applications have grown beyond simple documents and spreadsheets where 2D acceleration was sufficient. Modern applications, including Outlook, Office 2016, web browsers, Adobe Photoshop, and even Windows 10 can all take advantage... Read more...
