We always knew Pascal was going to be a big deal, but we couldn't have predicted that NVIDIA would come out of the gate with a pair of graphics cards that are each faster than a Titan X, one of which will be priced at $379 when it debuts later this month. Now consider this—as exciting as the GeForce GTX 1070 and GeForce GTX 1080 are, imagine the level of awesome they'll bring when NVIDiA's hardware partners tweak the reference designs and install fancy coolers.Count Gigabyte among the ones planning something special. Gigabyte is practically bursting at the seams trying to hold back its own excitement,... Read more...
Doom Powered By NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 And Vulkan API At a private briefing with NVIDIA, representatives from id software came out on stage to show off the upcoming game Doom running on the just-announced GeForce GTX 1080 graphics card using the Vulkan API. It was the first public demonstration of the game using both NVIDIA’s new flagship and the next-gen API, which is a low-overhead, cross-platform graphics and compute API akin to DirectX 12 and AMD’s Mantle. We’ve got some live-action from the demo available for your viewing pleasure here... Doom Running On The GTX 1080 Using Vulkan In the initial... Read more...
The highlight of NVIDIA's press event in Austin, Texas on Friday was obviously Pascal and its forthcoming GeForce GTX 1070 and GeForce GTX 1080 graphics cards, but the next generation GPU architecture isn't the only thing gamers have to be excited about. NVIDIA also introduced something called Ansel, a new in-game photography tool that finally recognizes PC gaming as a true art form. For the most part, PC gamers have been limited to rudimentary tools for capturing in-game screenshots. When you've maneuvered your avatar or first-person perspective to precisely the right spot, tapping the Print Screen... Read more...
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 - Faster Than Titan X For Half The Cost, Faster Than 2x GTX 980 Tonight at an event in Austin, Texas, NVIDIA unveiled its highly anticipated next-generation, Pascal-based GeForce graphics cards, known as the GeForce GTX 1080 and GeForce GTX 1070. NVIDIA’s Pascal architecture is based on 16nm FinFET technology, similar to that of NVIDIA’s high end data center Tesla P100 processing engine, but the GeForce cards are targeted at the consumer gaming market. NVIDIA’s GP104 GPU at the heart of the new GeForce cards is comprised of some 8 billion transistors and features a... Read more...
Could there be a better way to end the work week than being introduced to a new generation of graphics cards? It appears that's what NVIDIA has in store—the GPU maker sent out a Twitter message inviting the public to tune into a special event that it plans to stream live on Twitch tomorrow. If you work a typical 9-5 shift, you won't have to worry about missing the event live. It kicks off at 6 PM Pacific (9 PM Eastern), so as long as your commute is under an hour long, you should be home in time to see what NVIDiA has up its sleeve. In the meantime, we have some guesses, all of which start with... Read more...
There's been a ridiculous amount of hype surrounding NVIDIA's upcoming GeForce series, which is based on the Pascal architecture. At the company's recent GPU Technology Conference, we learned that the first shipping Pascal card is the ultra-powerful Tesla P100. While that card is designed strictly for compute purposes (there are no video outputs), we're sure to see a GeForce that will match the P100 in terms of specs. If so, that means we could see a card that's theoretically twice as fast as the GeForce TITAN X without having to go the dual-GPU route. Well, the rumors surrounding the new card... Read more...
Artificial intelligence is sort of the holy grail of computing, and while we may never reproduce the human brain or it's capabilities in their entirety in electronic form, the world's brightest minds are now capable of creating rather convincing systems that are beginning to learn more sophisticated concepts and even learn on their own. IBM is proving that with its constantly improving Watson cognitive computing technology, which one day might have us struggling to perceive the line between artificial and organic intelligence. You might be surprised at the progress that's been made. In the early... Read more...
Yesterday, during his keynote address at GTC 2016, NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang made a number of interesting announcements and disclosures. We saw Apple co-founder Steve “Woz” Wozniak take a virtual tour of Mars and witnessed the official unveiling of NVIDIA’s Tesla P100, which is based on the company’s bleeding-edge, GP100 GPU. GP100 leverages NVIDIA’s forward-looking Pascal GPU architecture and features 16GB of HBM2 memory, all built using TSMC’s 16nm FinFET manufacturing process. The GP100 is massive with a 600mm2 die, which is about the size of current gen high-end Maxwell GPUs, though when you... Read more...
NVIDIA just pulled the wraps off its fastest GPU and compute engine yet: the Tesla P100. This new GPU powerhouse is based on NVIDIA’s next generation Pascal architecture, which means that it’s built on a 16nm FinFET process. But even with thoroughly modern FinFET process tech, the Tesla P100’s die size measures 600mm2 due in part to the 15.3 billion transistors that comprise the new compute engine — nearly twice that of Maxwell, for reference. The specifications of the Tesla P100 are second to none, as double-precision performance is rated at 5.3 teraflops (TFLOPs), while single-precision performance... Read more...
There's really no such thing as a 'one-size-fits-all' solution when it comes to computing, and that's especially true for professionals who need varying degrees of graphics performance. For that reason, NVIDIA is now offering a version of its Quadro M6000 graphics card with 24GB of GDDR5 memory, twice as much memory as much as the original model.What does doubling the memory on NVIDIA's flagship workstation graphics card accomplish? Plain and simple, it makes working with the most demanding rendering and simulation intense workloads easier and faster. According to NVIDIA, customers rendering datasets... Read more...
With the Oculus Rift, HTC's Vive and Sony's PlayStation VR soon to hit the market, we're about to enter the modern era of Virtual Reality. We've been talking a lot about various solutions over the past couple of months, as well as other things related to the VR ecosystem. A consistent message we've heard is that to enjoy VR to its fullest on the PC, a powerful system is going to be needed, especially with respect to graphics. As unfortunate as it might be, VR workload is taxing on a system and generally requires more expensive hardware under the hood, in addition to the cost of VR kit with its... Read more...
We'd all love to wield dual Titan X graphics cards in our gaming systems, but pesky things like mortgages, college funds for the kids, and food bills tend to prevent us from such willy-nilly spending habits. Luckily manufacturers take these things into account and release more pedestrian level graphics cards, as ASUS has done with its new GeForce GTX 950 part.No, you're not going to game at 4K Ultra HD with all the eye candy cranked to the max with this thing, but for Full HD 1080p gaming, there's sufficient power here to push pixels around the screen. The card consists of 768 CUDA cores and 2GB... Read more...
NVIDIA hit it out of the park with its fourth quarter earnings, that the company reported this afternoon. The silicon valley graphics and system-on-a-chip titan outpaced last year’s already strong performance with revenue of $1.4 billion (a 12 percent increase from the same quarter a year ago). Net income came in at $297 million, or 35 cents per share. NVDA's full fiscal year 2016 was reported at $5.01 billion, which was a 7 percent increase over fiscal 2015. The company’s quarterly performance far outpaced analysts’ expectations and NVIDIA was rewarded with a 7 percent share boost in after hours... Read more...
We're all waiting with bated breath for NVIDIA to unleash Pascal, which will reportedly be produced on a 16-nanometer FinFET process technology and bring about big performance gains over Maxwell, but NVIDIA might not be done milking Maxwell just yet. On the opposite end of the performance spectrum, it's said that NVIDIA is prepping a GeForce GTX 950 LP (or SE) as a budget replacement for its GeForce GTX 750 card.What would be the point? If we're being cynical, it's largely a marketing play—higher numbers suggest better performance, and since NVIDIA already released a standard GeForce GTX 950 to... Read more...
