Rumor surrounding AMD's next high-end GPU, tentatively called the Radeon RX 490, have been floating around for a while. Admittedly, it's been extremely difficult to get a real gauge on what to expect. Some say that the RX 490 won't even match NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1070, but now, we have a benchmark that shows us that it might be just as fast as the GTX 1080. Stardock's Ashes of the Singularity became a de facto benchmark out-of-the-gate due to its use of DirectX 12, and not to mention its built-in benchmark. At the start of the month, a user named Ceaj uploaded a rather peculiar result, featuring... Read more...
NVIDIA is looking to make virtual reality (VR) experiences even more immersive and realistic (while improving performance), and it’s banking on the powerful Pascal architecture, which underpins everything from the GeForce GTX 1050 all the way up to the Titan X. Too boost its VR credentials, NVIDIA is introducing Lens Matched Shading, which is an improvement on Multi-Res Shading that was introduced with the previous generation Maxwell architecture. Lens Matched Shading is another VRWorks feature that is a further refinement of the multi-projection architecture used in Maxwell, and takes... Read more...
NVIDIA has been pushing its GeForce Experience application hard over the past couple of months, and for good reason. The software's name is apt -- it improves the GeForce gaming experience, which for some users could mean having the best in-game detail settings automatically determined, while for others, it could mean having a solid game-recorder tool at-the-ready, any time it is needed. NVIDIA recently piled on yet another perk to GFE -- free games. Right now, the company is giving away copies of Gears of War 4 to some gamers who simply use GeForce Experience 3.0, and are logged into the... Read more...
Like the former Red Sox star David Ortiz stepping up to the plate and knocking one out of the park, NVIDIA stepped up its game this year and hit a home run with its Pascal architecture. Now it gets to reap the rewards of all the R&D that went into its latest and by far greatest GPUs it ever released. Sales are up big time, and NVIDIA's share of the GPU market is on the rise. We already reported on NVIDIA's earnings in the third quarter, but to quickly recap, it GPU maker collected record revenue of $2 billion for the three-month period ended October 30, 2016, up 54 percent from the $1.3 billion...

Artificial intelligence is at the center of several evolving and next-generation products and services, everything from video games and smartphones (virtual digital assistants and messaging) to self-driving cars and web searchers. It has the attention of companies small and large, including NVIDIA and Microsoft, the two of which are partnering to push AI technologies more aggressively into the enterprise. What this essentially boils down to is pairing NVIDIA's DGX-1 supercomputer with Microsoft's Azure cloud platform. The idea is to "help companies join the AI revolution" and this partnership means...

Earlier this week, we informed you about rumblings that NVIDIA was rumored to be readying the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, a follow-on high end GPU targeted at bringing Titan X class performance to gamers and enthusiasts at a price point somewhere between the Titan X and the potent GeForce GTX 1080. Though rumored for a CES 2017 unveil, we're also now learning more specifics and possibly even a confirmation of the 1080 Ti's actual existence. Initially spotted on a shipping manifest by Videocardz, details in the shipment of a computer graphics card, targeting a destination Indian port via Bangalore Air,... Read more...
We don't know what is going on behind closed doors but we wouldn't be surprised if NVIDIA's brass popped a bottle of bubbly today. They deserve it—the company reported record revenue of $2 billion for the third quarter ended October 30, 2016, up 54 percent from the $1.3 billion it collected in the same time period a year ago. It's also an increase of 40 percent sequentially. After expenses, NVIDIA was left with a $542 million profit for the quarter, which is more than double the previous quarter ($261 million) and up 120 percent from the $246 million profit it posted a year ago. "We had a breakout... Read more...
There’s no question that NVIDIA built a kickass graphics family with Pascal. From entry-level to the enthusiast class, NVIDIA has delivered compelling GPUs at a wide range of price points. Currently at the top of the Pascal totem pole is the Titan X, which pumps out 11 TFLOPs peak compute performance and comes with 12GB GDDR5X memory onboard. Now that NVIDIA has addressed the budget end of the spectrum with the GeForce GTX 1050 and GTX 1050 Ti, it is once again focusing on the premium segment with the upcoming GeForce GTX 1080 Ti. This big brother to the GTX 1080 is rumored to not only take the... Read more...
So you bought a GeForce GTX 1080 or 1070 graphics card from EVGA with a fancy ACX 3.0 cooling solution and now you're worried it's going to burn up, is that it? Well turn that frown upside down. EVGA announced earlier this week that it was working on a VBIOS update that would instruct affected cards to more aggressively cool themselves, and that update is now available. The overheating issue came to light when several users posted some alarming temperature readings on Reddit and EVGA's support forum. In some cases, users posted pictures of purported charring on certain components, while others... Read more...
After weeks of speculation, NVIDIA announced its entry-level Pascal-based GeForce GTX 1050 and GTX 1050 Ti graphics cards in mid-October. Not long after, HotHardware gave you reviews of both cards. While neither card is going to give you 4K gaming satisfaction, both are reasonably-priced desktop offerings that will handle your 1080p gaming needs with aplomb. NVIDIA has already treated notebook users to mobile SKUs of the GTX 1080, GTX 1070 and GTX 1060, so it should come as no surprise that there might soon be a version of the GTX 1050 Ti destined for mobile use. Given the lower power demands of... Read more...
Over the weekend, we reported on a five-alarm issue involving certain NVIDIA GeForce 10-Series graphics cards from EVGA. Customers of affected cards have witnessed intermittent screen anomalies with their cards, which foreshadows impending doom. Others have witnessed their cards go up in flames, with the voltage regulator module (VRM) overheating due to improper cooling. Testing has shown that in some cases, parts of the PCB on affected cards has reached upwards of 107C. After issuing an initial statement on the matter when the first reports starting spreading, EVGA is back now with further information... Read more...
