Although NVIDIA revealed some high level information on its next generation Pascal GPU architecture earlier this year, the company revealed some more interesting details this week at NVIDIA’s GPU Technology Conference in Japan. NVIDIA announced that Pascal will have close to a 2x performance-per-watt improvement over the current Maxwell GPU architecture, which is built on a 28nm process. It’s also been revealed that Pascal will be produced using TSMC’s 16nm FinFET process, which will put it right up against AMD which is moving to use 14nm/16nm with two new Graphics Core Next (GCN) products in 2016....

Months removed from a recall over a fire hazard stemming from a batch of defective batteries, NVIDIA's gaming-centric SHIELD Tablet is back and ready for action, and with a brand new price to boot. NVIDIA peeled $100 off the previous price tag, which now puts the SHIELD Tablet at a penny shy of $200 as the holiday shopping season comes into view.It's also now being called the SHIELD Tablet K1 instead of just SHIELD Tablet. Other than fixing the battery issue, it's the same device, only NVIDIA is emphasizing that it's powered by a Tegra K1 processor boasting a 192-core Kepler-based GPU. When we... Read more...
NVIDIA may be a graphics powerhouse when it comes to add-in boards for desktops and integrated graphics for notebooks, but the company isn’t putting all of its eggs into one basket. It also tiptoes into supercomputing efforts, automotive technology (the company’s Tegra X1 powers the 2016 Audi TT’s “virtual cockpit” gauge cluster), and even SoCs for mobile devices. NVIDIA is expanding its reach into new markets with Jetson TX1, a new platform that has a footprint smaller than a credit card and is destined for autonomous devices. Aerial drone leader DJI was already moving down this past using NVIDIA... Read more...
Graphics chip maker NVIDIA announced record revenue of $1.305 billion for the third quarter ended October 25, 2015, up 7 percent from $1.225 billion in the same quarter a year ago, besting estimates by Wall Street analysts. That figure also represents a 13 percent boost from the $1.153 billion NVIDIA generated in the previous quarter "Our record revenue highlights NVIDIA's position at the center of forces that are reshaping our industry," said Jen-Hsun Huang, co-founder and chief executive officer, NVIDIA. "Virtual reality, deep learning, cloud computing and autonomous driving are developing with... Read more...
When it comes to new graphics cards, we're used to talking about things like frame rates and gaming performance at different resolutions. You might think a new dual GPU offering from NVIDIA would elicit similar commentary, but that isn't the case with the NVS 810, a Maxwell-based graphics card with an impressive feature-set for a totally different market. NVIDIA's taking aim at the digital signage market, and while that might sound like a snoozer on the surface, there's some impressive technology here. This thing is rocking two GM107 GPUs, each with 512 CUDA cores and 2GB of RAM (for a total of... Read more...
It's a great time to be a gamer, don't you think? Gamers have access to all kinds of awesome technologies, things like 4K displays, blazing fast graphics cards, and G-Sync for smoother game play. There's also a whole bunch of big budget titles in the pipeline this holiday season, and if you're rocking an NVIDIA graphics card, the GPU makers says it will have your back with Game Ready drivers for each and every one of them. "We introduced our Game Ready drivers program two years ago. Rather than release drivers according to arbitrary timetables, our timelines for drivers are in lockstep with major... Read more...
The rise of our robotic overlords isn't going to be sudden, even though it might feel that way when they take over full control. No, it will be the result of a long and unintentional uprising, the culmination of several technologies that led to a single turning point. One of those technologies is likely to be DJI's Manifold, a NUC-like PC built specifically for its Matrice 100 drone. It measures just 11 x 11 x 2.6 centimeters (4.33 x 4.33 x 1.02 inches), weighs less than 200 grams (0.44 pounds), and is easily mounted to the pre-installed expansion bay that sits atop the Matrice 100. What's the... Read more...
Good things are coming to NVIDIA's GeForce Experience utility over the course of the next few months, things like the ability to stream games at 4K from your PC to your television and enhanced broadcasting. Early adopters who don't mind running pre-release software can sample a taste of these things and more through a new beta that NVIDIA's doling out today.One of the benefits of owning a high end graphics card or, even better, two of them in SLI is the ability to crank up the resolution in games to 4K for a better visual experience with a bigger field of view. It just so happens that NVIDIA's... Read more...
We have a lot of respect for Jen-Hsun Huang, the fiery boss of NVIDIA who once famously told analysts that the GPU maker was going to "open a can of whoop ass" on Intel, which at the time was talking a big game about Nehalem and Larrabee. He's done some wonderful things at NVIDIA, the company he co-founded over two decades ago, and it's earning him props from Harvard.In a new study in the November issue of Harvard Business Review, Mr. Huang was named the 29th best-performing CEO in the world. That's high praise, especially coming from one of the most esteemed universities on the planet (Harvard... Read more...
NVIDIA today launched a new batch of mobile Quadro GPUs for professionals who need desktop-class power while out in the field. There are six new Quadro parts in all, including the M5000M, M4000M, M3000M, M2000M, M1000M, and M600M, all of which are based on NVIDIA's mighty Maxwell architecture. According to NVIDIA, these new GPUs are up to twice as fast and energy efficient as their Kepler-based predecessors. Mobile workstations that use them pack nearly the same performance punch as desktop workstations, which means professionals can plow through the same complex and resource-intensive applications...

Though it's still a bit early, virtual reality has the potential to be the biggest thing to happen to gaming since the advent of 3D graphics. We'll have a better grasp of VR's impact once devices like the Oculus Rift ship, but in the meantime, Epic Games put together a new demo that gives us a glimpse of where we're headed. The demo, called Bullet Train, was unveiled by Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney during a keynote by Oculus boss Brendan Iribe at the VR company's Connect 2 conference in Hollywood, California. Epic Games designed the demo to showcase what's possible when storytelling and VR technology... Read more...
Mobile gaming GPUs have never been on par with their latest desktop brethren, though that's about to change with the introduction of a GeForce GTX 980 built for laptops. NVIDIA answered the call for true desktop class graphics in a laptop form factor, and MSI will be the first to market with a gaming notebook built around the high end GPU.That system is the GT72 Dominator Pro G, a limited edition laptop in celebration of MSI's 29th anniversary. What makes it so special is the combination of a true GeForce GTX 980 GPU (with 8GB of GDDR5 memory) paired up with an Intel Core i7-6820HK processor based... Read more...
Are you having trouble beating a level boss or figuring out an in-game puzzle? Invite one of your gaming buddies to lend a helping hand! It's one of a handful of nifty features NVIDIA implemented in its GeForce Experience Share, which is now available in early access beta form. The newest beta includes a new in-game overlay that makes it easy to record, share, and broadcast your epic gaming moments without leaving the game. Through the in-game overlay, gamers can use Shadowplay to capture a stream and then upload it to YouTube, broadcast to Twitch, or share with other players, all without having... Read more...
There have been 75 million Windows 10 installs to date, and though things have mostly gone well, some NVIDIA users are experiencing issues running more than one graphics card. Good news -- NVIDIA this week rolled out a hotfix driver (version 355.80) to address one of the SLI issues that's been plaguing gamers.Specifically, the hotfix addresses "excessive virtual memory consumption for SLI configurations running Windows 10," according to NVIDIA. The hotfix won't eliminate all the issues users have been seeing in Windows 10 when running an SLI configuration, though it should prevent users from seeing... Read more...
