It’s been nearly a year since NVIDIA first launched its Tegra X1-powered SHIELD console. Since that time, SHIELD has been upgraded to Android 6.0 Marshmallow and received nearly a dozen software updates and features enhancement to keep it up to date. But as its first birthday rolls around, NVIDIA is ready to drop some new software goodness on SHIELD owners. NVIDIA will soon be releasing SHIELD Experience Upgrade 3.2, which will bring with it (among other things) support for the VUDU app. In fact, SHIELD will be the only Android TV device to support the VUDU app and the 4K content library that it...

NVIDIA today introduced a new graphics card option for its GRID virtual desktop platform. It's the Tesla M10 and it's intended to make it more affordable for businesses to deliver virtualized desktops to all of their employees through a subscription model that starts at just $2 per user, per month (when signing up with a 3-year plan). The pitch from NVIDIA is that business applications have grown beyond simple documents and spreadsheets where 2D acceleration was sufficient. Modern applications, including Outlook, Office 2016, web browsers, Adobe Photoshop, and even Windows 10 can all take advantage... Read more...
We're all lusting over NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1080 graphics card and dreaming of having two of those beasts configured in SLI, but for the more frugal enthusiast, the GeForce GTX 1070 can't be ignored. It's the other graphics card NVIDIA introduced as part of its impressive Pascal launch, and to followup with that, we now have specifications to share. The more affordable GeForce GTX 1070 is a monster card in its own right, one that wields a 16nm GP104 GPU with 7.2 billion transistors. It also boasts 1,920 CUDA cores with base and boost clockspeeds of 1,506MHz and 1,683MHz, respectively, along with... Read more...
A couple of weeks back, at a packed event in Austin, Texas filled with tech press and attendees from the DreamHack gaming event that took place up the road, NVIDIA CEO Jen Hsun-Huang unveiled the company’s newest graphics cards, the GeForce GTX 1080 and GeForce GTX 1070. These latest flagships represent a true generational leap in performance and efficiency, thanks to NVIDIA's new Pascal GPU architecture at their core and the bleeding-edge 16nm FinFET + VLSI manufacturing processes used to produce the chips. For the last few years, virtually all of the discrete GPUs being produced used... Read more...
NVIDIA’s SHIELD Tablet has been on the market for nearly two years and made quite the splash with gamers thanks to its fast Tegra K1 processor, 8-inch Full HD display, and support for the SHIELD wireless controller. However, two years is a long time on the market for any hardware product — even one that has been routinely updated via software. Luckily, we can thank the FCC for providing a few scant details on the successor to the first generation SHIELD Tablet. The new tablet, which has the model number P2290W, measures 8.46 inches x 4.72 inches and is 0.30 inches thick. Weighing in at 12.34 ounces,... Read more...
A few weeks back, during its GPU Technology Conference, NVIDIA announced a new Quadro-branded graphics card for the professional workstation market. That card is the Quadro M2000 we’ll be showing you here today. The Quadro M2000 is a low-power pro graphics solution featuring a GPU based on NVIDIA’s Maxwell architecture. In fact, it’s the very same GPU used on one of the more mainstream GeForce GTX-branded cards. However, with the Quadro M2000, additional features and capabilities are enabled through NVIDIA's Quadro software/driver suite and the card’s particular hardware configuration.The Quadro...

Late last week, we provided you with some awesome footage of Doom running on an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 using the Vulkan API. Granted, we were filming this footage using our own camera, so it’s not exactly clean, crisp and impeccably detailed. Well, the folks at NVIDIA and id Software want to make sure that eager-beaver gamers are seeing Doom in the absolute best possible light, so NVIDIA today posted a 6-minute direct feed to the footage to YouTube. In case you were wondering, the direct feed is 2.1GB uncompressed and is running 1920x1080 at 60 FPS. Unfortunately, this replay of the game footage... Read more...
Late last month, Bethesda released the Creation Kit as a free download for those that want to take a stab at building Mods for Fallout 4. The Creation Kit isn’t just some second-rate tool that was tossed at gamers; instead, these are the same tools that the developers used to make Fallout 4 and its DLC content like Far Harbor. With that in mind, the fine folks over at NVIDIA are calling on the gaming community to create Mods and the payoff will be YUGE, in the words of Donald Trump. Gamers are being tasked to create Mods that fit into the following four Categories: Status: Mods that alter the functionality... Read more...
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...
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...
At last week’s GPU Technology Conference, NVIDIA’s CEO Jen-Hsun Huang unveiled a couple of key products and technologies that target the High-Performance Computing, or HPC, space, including the Tesla P100 data center accelerator and its companion DGX-1 deep-learning system, which is a powerful server that has up to eight Tesla P100 cards at its core. Today though, we have more information about the underlying architecture employed in the P100, otherwise known NVIDIA’s Pascal GPU architecture.Pascal is the follow-up to the Maxwell architecture, which is leveraged in NVIDIA’s current-generation...
