Titan X is finally here, and as our own Marco Chiappetta noted in his in-depth review, the graphics card is freakin’ fast (and overclockable, to boot). You can head out now to pick up an NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan X for your rig – or you can lay down some extra cash for a custom build from a boutique PC maker. With the news embargo safely behind them, Maingear, Origin PC, and others have been showing off systems that can be customized with Titan X. Maingear X-CUBEs“Maingear prides itself in offering the best in gaming and the NVIDIA Titan X is the next generation video card for gamers who demand... Read more...
NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang is about to get the party started at this year’s GPU Technology Conference (GTC), which is being held in San Jose, California. We’re certain that NVIDIA’s monster GeForce GTX Titan X will make an appearance but the real kicker might come from Tony Stark Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla Motors. Musk is scheduled to join Jen-Hsun on stage for perhaps a big announcement relating to automobiles. We already know that NVIDIA technology is used in the Model S, so perhaps we’ll hear about a Tegra X1 announcement for the upcoming Model X and Model III electric vehicles. You can watch...

Last year, NVIDIA delivered GeForce GTX 980M and 970M GPUs, which offered mobile gamers a no-compromise solution in a mid- to large-size notebook form-factor. Now, NVIDIA is extending its GTX 900M series with the introduction of the GTX 960M and 950M. NVIDIA is hoping to prove that the race to deliver thin (less than one-inches thick) and light notebooks doesn’t have to mean that graphics performance has to suffer. Both the GTX 960M and 950M support DirectX 12, feature Maxwell architecture, include 640 CUDA cores, and are built on a 28nm process. However, that’s where the similarities end. The... Read more...
During one of EPIC’s “State Of Unreal Engine” briefing session out at the Game Developer’s Conference, Tim Sweeny talked about the need for more powerful GPU technology to bring us closer to true photo-realistic rendering. At that point in his talk, Sweeny asked if there was anyone in the room that could answer that call, and NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang entered the room carrying a box, concealed within a large jacket.NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang Reveals The GeForce GTX Titan XNIVIDA has their own conference—GTC—happening in about a week’s time, which is where the company usually announces next-gen GPU...

NVIDIA pulled the rug out from under overclockers through a recent driver update that disabled the ability to goose its GeForce GTX 900M Series mobile GPUs past their stock clocks, creating a whirlwind of criticism in the process. Having heard the collective outcries of overclockers, and perhaps looking to avoid a class action lawsuit, NVIDIA has decided to reinstate the ability to OC through an upcoming driver. Why a lawsuit? Well, we live in sue-happy times, but that's a topic for another day. The real reason, however, is because NVIDIA's hardware partners marketed and sold high-end gaming laptops... Read more...
Nvidia surprised members of the overclocking community this week when it pulled OC support from drivers for its 900M series mobile graphics cards. Although Nvidia hasn’t gone out of its way the GTX 900M cards as being overclocking-friendly, many users (particularly those who bought laptops with higher-end cards like the 980m) were overclocking – until the latest driver update. Now, Nvidia is telling customers not to expect OC capabilities to return.Nvidia at CES 2015The Nvidia driver in question is GeForce R347 (347.29). The driver doesn’t have overclocking tools and third-party tools are not supported.... Read more...
Given the overall success of its first SHIELD products, it's seemed obvious that NVIDIA would keep on trucking, and would soon infuse one of its products with some Tegra X1 lovin'. But just how soon? A lot sooner than I would have figured, if Fudzilla's reporting proves true. The site says that NVIDIA's planning to launch a brand-new SHIELD Tablet by the end of Q1. As NVIDIA's annual developer conference takes place in mid-March, it's estimated that it could launch there. That would strike me as a bit of an odd venue to release a gaming device, but if it does prove true, it'd surely mean that there... Read more...
As unfortunate as it's become, another day in the tech industry means yet another security breach, a startling trend that seems to be picking up in frequency as we head into 2015. This time graphics chip maker NVIDIA was hit. The Santa Clara, California-based company has advised its employees to change their passwords after discovering "unauthorized access" to its network.NVIDIA said it learned about the breach during the first week of December, adding that it involved a number of employee usernames and passwords. At this time, NVIDIA hasn't found any evidence to suggest that any other information... Read more...
Tis the season of giving, and the U.S. International Trade Commission has given NVIDIA a heads up that it will investigate claims by Samsung that it infringed on some of the South Korean company's patents covering graphics technology. Samsung's complaints of patent infringement are the result of a countersuit it filed against NVIDIA in November after NVIDIA sued Samsung, also for allegedly infringing patents, a few months prior. In response to the ITC's decision, NVIDIA penned a blog post explaining its position and why it feels Samsung is playing dirty. On the surface, NVIDIA... Read more...
Earlier this month, I had the opportunity to tour Carnival's CSMART facility in Almere, the Netherlands. This facility is one of a handful in the world that can provide both extensive training and certification on cruise ships as well as a comprehensive simulation of what it's like to command one. Simulating the operation of a Carnival cruise ship is anything but simple. Let's start with a ship that's at least passingly familiar to most people -- the RMS Titanic. At roughly 46,000 tons and 882 feet long, she was, briefly, the largest vessel afloat. Compared to a modern cruise ship, however, Titanic... Read more...
Machine learning and artificial intelligence aren't easy things to grasp, but both are critically important for technology to march on, our surroundings to get smarter, and the digital assistants within our phones to become more useful. Microsoft Research and NVIDIA are teaming up this week to showcase what's possible when two giants in the space link hands and share insights. NVIDIA GPUs are being used by Microsoft Research, and the results are impressive. Microsoft Research employs around 1,000 scientists and engineers to make significant product contributions and address some of society’s... Read more...
The SHIELD Tablet is only a few months old, but NVIDIA is already updating the device with a freshly minted OS, a refreshed SHIELD Hub (and other NVIDIA apps), and access to the company’s newly upgraded GRID Game Streaming service. A number of new Tegra K1 optimized games are arriving as well, as well as a new game bundle which includes one of the best reviewed PC games of all time. We’ve already mentioned that NVIDIA had an Android Lollipop update on the way for the SHIELD Tablet, but we have a few more details to share today. The SHIELD Tablet Android Lollipop update will...

Editor's Update: 11:26AM EST - Though it may not exist in the original iFixIt article, to be clear, the "glue and hackery" comment was made in an email communication to us. And, to be fair, as an informed redditor pointed out, tablets are tough and the iPad Air 2 scored low as well. Still, it begs the question, could another partner have done better than HTC? ASUS or LG, perhaps? After all, the Nexus 7 (2013) did score a 7 out of 10. If there's one thing that's becoming increasingly evident with each new gadget teardown, it's that tablet makers have an obsession for glue. Now before anyone gets... Read more...
There's more to the graphics wars than framerates, prices, and game bundles. There's also image quality to consider, along with special technologies that NVIDIA and AMD tout in hopes of winning your business. And just as AMD recently made a big deal about realistic hair via TressFX Hair, NVIDIA is now showing off realistic grass technology called Turf Effects that will make you want to hop on that John Deere and get to mowing. Turf Effects is a new NVIDIA GameWorks technology capable of simulating and rendering massive grass landscapes with physical interaction. The technology provides a fully... Read more...
