Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1050 Ti The moment has finally arrived. After nearly two months of speculation, NVIDIA has finally pulled the wraps off its new entry-level GeForce GTX 1050 and GTX 1050 Ti graphics cards. NVIDIA is confident that these budget cards won't drain your wallet and will allow you to enjoy your favorite games at 1080p/60fps. Although NVIDIA isn’t ready to divulge all of the specifications for the new cards just yet, it did let us know that both GP107 GPUs feature a 135mm2 die size, 3.3 billion transistors and a 128-bit memory interface. The GTX 1050, as we’ve previously reported,... Read more...
We're not the only ones who read the rumors, you can bet that hardware companies do as well. One of the rumors swirling right now is that NVIDIA's getting ready to release a GeForce GTX 1050 Ti graphics card, which will bring the awesome power of Pascal to gamers on a tighter budget. It appears AMD wants to steal some thunder from that launch by marking down its Radeon RX 470 graphics card.The Radeon RX 470 debuted at $179, a reasonable price for a reasonably fast graphics card. However, it's about to get cheaper—the folks at TweakTown believe they have it on good authority that AMD will cut $10... Read more...
Over the past month, we’ve gotten a clearer look at what to expect from NVIDIA’s new entry-level GeForce GTX 1050 series of graphics cards. In our most recent report, we learned that NVIDIA is planning both 2GB GTX 1050 and a 4GB GTX 1050 Ti variants. Today, we’re receiving confirmation of both the GTX 1050 Ti branding and the fact that the card will use the Pascal GP107 GPU. Images of a Chinese-based card also confirm 4GB of GDDR5 memory onboard the card and show that the GP107 is quite a bit smaller than the GP106 found inside the GTX 1060. If you’ll also notice that the PCB features a 6-pin... Read more...
The wait for Titanfall 2 is almost over. It will arrive to PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One at the end of next month. In the meantime, if you're looking for a reason to splurge on a graphics card upgrade for your computer, NVIDIA posted a few minutes of awesome game play footage showing the title running at a 4K Ultra HD resolution at 60 frames per second on a Titan X. Not that you have to go out and buy a Titan X to play Titanfall 2 at a 4K resolution at 60 FPS. Developer Respawn Entertainment recommends a GeForce GTX 1080 graphics card, along with an Intel Core i7-6700K processor (or equivalent),... Read more...
When enthusiasts think of NVIDIA, they typically think first and foremost about graphics cards. However, the company over the years has broadened its portfolio to include deep learning accelerators, gaming consoles, and even processing engines for self-driving cars. Today, NVIDIA is expanding on the last segment of its business by teasing Xavier. Xavier, which was announced at the European edition of the GPU Technology Conference, is an artificial intelligence (AI) supercomputer that was designed from the ground-up to be used for self-driving vehicles. Xavier is an SoC built around a custom 8-core... Read more...
We’ve already heard rumblings about NVIDIA’s upcoming budget GeForce GTX 1050 GPU series, and today we’re learning even more info about the cards that are aimed at the ultimate penny pinching gamers. We’ve learned that there will reportedly be two versions available, both of which are based on the GP107 graphics core: the standard GeForce GTX 1050 with 2GB of RAM and the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti with 4GB of RAM onboard. The GeForce GTX 1050 is said to come with 640 CUDA cores, which by far makes its the weakest member of the Pascal family. The base clock is dialed in at 1354 MHz, while the boost clock...

Virtual Reality (VR) is the “next big thing” in the gaming arena, and MSI is delving into the market feet first with the world’s first VR backpack. Dubbed the VR One, MSI bills the device as the thinnest and lightest backpack PC system ever made. While VR systems like the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift traditionally leave you tethered to your desktop (or laptop) with wires, the VR One gives you complete freedom to walk around and fully interact with your virtual environment with ease. MSI describes the VR One as having a “futuristic robot machine style” and we won’t disagree with that assertion. If you’ve... Read more...
NVIDIA pushed the gaming sector forward with its Pascal architecture, perhaps more so than any new GPU architecture in recent memory when factoring in both performance and price. However, gamers aren't the only ones who stand to benefit. The GPU maker today announced some new additions to its Pascal-based deep learning platform, the Tesla P4 and Tesla P40. These GPUs feature specialized inference instructions based on 8-bit (INT8) operations, delivering 45x faster response than CPUs and a 4x improvement over GPU solutions launched less than a year ago, NVIDIA says. The systems that these GPUs will... Read more...
The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is one of the world’s largest if not THE largest tech expo held each year. Well over 100,000 tech enthusiasts and press congregate in Las Vegas every January to see the latest computer hardware, gadgets, and high-tech automobiles that companies have to offer. One Silicon Valley company in particular that has diversified itself quite nicely in the past few years will be among those invited to help kick off the festivities at CES 2017. Jen-Hsun Huang helped to co-found NVIDIA in 1993 and currently serves as the company’s CEO. Huang will deliver a preshow keynote... Read more...
Sometimes, it's best to accept the fact that you can't do everything yourself, and where microprocessors are concerned, that can be critical. Sometimes there's just no sense in reinventing the wheel. However, Samsung has been driving to build in-house graphics IP for its Exynos mobile chipsets for quite some time. According to new rumors, though, the Korean company has put that idea on hold, and is instead considering licensing GPU IP from other major players like AMD and / or NVIDIA. According to industry sources at SamMobile, Samsung is in talks with both AMD... Read more...
IFA 2016 is not the only hub for announcements this week.

In the gaming industry, it's not uncommon to hear about cases where one developer clips code from another. We've even seen it happen on Steam's Greenlight service, where some smaller developers churn out a quick game and "borrow" assets from other established games. It's not often though that we hear about this kind of thing involving a major OEM, like NVIDIA, for instance. Alongside the launch of its first Pascal-based GPUs, NVIDIA released an advanced screen-capture tool called Ansel. With it, players can effectively pause a supported game, and then manipulate the view in free-cam mode. From... Read more...
