There’s no doubt that the NVIDIA SHIELD TV is an incredibly powerful media platform that not only allows for immersive gaming, but also supports popular 4K streaming services. Powered by a Tegra X1 processor (which also powers the incredibly popular Nintendo Switch), the SHIELD TV does battle with devices like the Apple TV, Fire TV and various Roku models. Today, NVIDIA is expanding the streaming capabilities of the SHIELD TV by adding 4K streaming support for Google Play Movies and TV. The SHIELD TV already had 4K streaming support for services like YouTube, Netflix and Amazon Video (among others),... Read more...
NVIDIA shook up the top of the graphics card market a couple of weeks back with the release of the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti. In its stock, Founder’s Edition form, the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti proved to be the fastest consumer-class graphics card available, but that didn’t stop NVIDIA’s board partners from quickly announcing custom versions packing even more horsepower. Case in point: The beastly Gigabyte Aorus GeForce GTX 1080 Ti 11GB we will be showing you here. The Gigabyte Aorus GeForce GTX 1080 Ti 11GB is the first, fully-custom, factory-overclocked (and ready to rock) GTX 1080 Ti to hit the lab, and... Read more...
The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti’s reign at the top of consumer graphics food chain was short-lived. The $700 GTX 1080 Ti has now been supplanted by the $1,200 Titan Xp, a full-fat GP102 core that demolishes benchmarks first and asks questions later. In case you missed it the first two times that we covered the Titan Xp, here’s the general breakdown of how the new ballbuster stacks up specs wise: 12GB GDDR5X memory operating at 11.4 GbpsMaximum memory bandwidth of 548Gbps3,840 CUDA cores running at a clock speed of 1.6GHz12 TFLOPs of compute powerAvailable direct from NVIDIA with an MSRP of $1,200...

Earlier this week, NVIDIA came out of absolutely nowhere with an announcement of a new top-end TITAN X, following-up to the Pascal-based TITAN X released (also out of nowhere) last summer. This new TITAN X, somewhat confusingly called TITAN Xp, offers more CUDA cores and faster memory than the previous gen Titan X for the same $1,200 USD price tag. It's also of course faster than a GeForce GTX 1080 Ti. Regardless, if you happened to have been in the market for such a luxury, then this announcement came at just the right time. Based on the TITAN Xp's specs, and what we know of the GeForce... Read more...
With the launch of the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti last month, NVIDIA for the most part surpassed the performance of the Pascal-based Titan X while undercutting the graphics card’s price point by hundreds. Unfortunately for the GTX 1080 Ti, its reign at the top didn’t last long as NVIDIA is ratcheting up the performance potential of Pascal yet again with the new Titan Xp. If you’re looking for the ultimate in graphics performance in a single card on the PC, it doesn’t any better than this. The Titan Xp is more potent than both the original Pascal-based Titan X and the GTX 1080 Ti, as it represent the Pascal... Read more...
  Do you have a fever, and the only prescription is more GeForce GTX 1080 Ti? Well, sit back and take a seat, because EVGA has no less than three custom graphics cards coming your way — and that is in addition to the already-announced Founders Edition.EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti As you might already know, the Founders Edition has a base clock of 1480MHz and a boost clock of 1582MHz, with a texture fill rate of 331.5GT/s. The 11GB of GDDR5X memory is clocked at 11GHz providing effective memory bandwidth of 484 GB/s.EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti SC2 Gaming But EVGA’s custom boards start ramping up the... Read more...
Just a week ago, Vince “K|NGP|N” Lucido was turning heads with a massive overclock on an EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Founder Edition. K|NGP|N was able to take the newly released graphics card to a stunning 2.5GHz using liquid nitrogen. Even the onboard GDDR5X memory received some well-deserved attention, overclocking to 12.5Gbps. To put those numbers in perspective, the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti has a base clock of 1480MHz and boosts to 1582MHz, while the card’s memory has a stock speed of 11Gbps. Now K|NGP|N is back at it again, using liquid nitrogen to eek another 500MHz out of the EVGA GeForce GTX 1080... Read more...

Among geeks like us, one of the biggest questions surrounding NIntendo's hybrid Switch console is what exactly makes the custom Tegra system-on-chip (SoC) inside different from existing Tegra parts. It turns out the answer is nothing. It has never been a secret that the Switch is powered by Tegra, but the assumption has always been that it's a customized version specific to the Switch. Nope. Following up on a recent teardown of the Switch, the folks at Tech Insights say an in-depth evaluation of the die structure reveals the Tegra part to be a Tegra X1 T210 featuring four Cortex A75 cores, four...

NVIDIA may be best known as a leader in computer graphics for enthusiasts and professionals, but the company is quickly branching out into other lucrative industries like GPU-based deep learning. NVIDIA is also becoming increasingly entangled in the world of self-driving cars with its DRIVE PX platforms. With that in mind, NVIDIA has just announced that it is teaming up with Bosch to develop a new computing platform for self-driving cars. The AI computer will leverage NVIDIA’s upcoming Xavier SoC, and for now is being called DRIVE PX Xavier (although it is likely that it will be marketed as Drive... Read more...
As you no doubt already know, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti is the fastest gaming graphics card to ever be unleashed on the enthusiast market. Taking the place of the already impressive GeForce GTX 1080, the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti is more closely related to the Titan X, incorporates 11GB of 11Gbps GDDR5X memory, and has a price tag of $699. However, some people just aren’t content with the 1480MHz base and 1582Hz boost clocks of the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti. That’s where EVGA overclocking expert Kingpin comes into focus. Kingpin was able to overclock an EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Founders Edition that was... Read more...
Reports coming out of China indicate that Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) has inked deals with NVIDIA and Qualcomm to produce high performance computing (HPC) chips that will be used for artificial intelligence applications, among other things. That includes the fabrication of NVIDIA's next-generation Volta GPUs using a 12-nanometer FinFET manufacturing process. Rumors had surfaced in January that NVIDIA had tapped TSMC to build its Volta GPUs, and assuming the new reports are accurate, it would appear that contract negotiations have been finalized. TSMC certainly has the capacity.... Read more...
In addition to having just launched the fastest gaming graphics card ever, in the form of the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, NVIDIA has also dropped a new driver that's useful for all GeForce owners. Performance is the biggest name of game with the GeForce 378.78 drivers, but that's not all that's bundled. Those who have been craving for improved DirectX 12 performance will no doubt be pleased: there are gains to be seen all over the place. In Ashes of the Singularity, NVIDIA states that this driver brings a 9% performance boost, and in Hitman, that grows to a staggering 23%. Not all boosts are quite so... Read more...
It takes some serious hardware to do the things that Facebook is able to do. In an effort to stay ahead of the technological curve, the social networking site announced today at the 2017 Open Compute Project (OCP) summit in Santa Clara a next-generation GPU server called Big Basin. It's the successor to the Big Sur GPU server announced in 2015 and it will help Facebook to continue leveraging artificial intelligence to power service like speech and text translations, photo classifiers, and real-time video classification. Big Basin was built in collaboration with Quanta Clout Technology (QCT), Facebook's... Read more...
