Titan X is finally here, and as our own Marco Chiappetta noted in his in-depth review, the graphics card is freakin’ fast (and overclockable, to boot). You can head out now to pick up an NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan X for your rig – or you can lay down some extra cash for a custom build from a boutique PC maker. With the news embargo safely behind them, Maingear, Origin PC, and others have been showing off systems that can be customized with Titan X.

A couple of weeks back at GDC, in a bit of a surprise move considering NVIDIA’s CEO Jen Hsun Huang just left the stage at the company’s own GPU Technology Conference (GTC), the GeForce GTX Titan X was unveiled. The unveiling, which took place during one of EPIC’s talks, was somewhat casual and only a couple of details were disclosed. Jen Hsun said that GeForce GTX Titan X cards featured 12GB of memory and a GPU that packed in roughly 8 billion transistors. Besides whatever we could discern from a few quick pictures, no other details were given.Today though, we can give you the full scoop.... Read more...
NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang is about to get the party started at this year’s GPU Technology Conference (GTC), which is being held in San Jose, California. We’re certain that NVIDIA’s monster GeForce GTX Titan X will make an appearance but the real kicker might come from Tony Stark Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla Motors. Musk is scheduled to join Jen-Hsun on stage for perhaps a big announcement relating to automobiles. We already know that NVIDIA technology is used in the Model S, so perhaps we’ll hear about a Tegra X1 announcement for the upcoming Model X and Model III electric vehicles. You can watch...

We saw a lot of interesting hardware at PAX earlier this month, but we weren’t able to cover every single product that we saw at the time. Thankfully, we’ve had some time to refresh our memory banks and report on these two particular beauties that we saw at the EVGA booth. First up is the EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Classified ACX 2.0. The graphics card is of course built using NVIDIA Maxwell architecture which means you’ll find 2048 CUDA cores, a 1291 MHz core clock (1393 MHz Boost) and 4GB of 7010 MHz GDDR5 memory. The dual-slot graphics card also features EVGA’s ACX 2.0 cooling system, which uses swept... Read more...
AMD's next Radeon graphics card series has been the victim of much speculation, and predictions of when the first card comes out have been all over the board - you might as well throw a dart at a 12-month calendar and your guess will be as good as any. That said, the folks over at VideoCardz have a source that says the first card will arrive next month. This information came about because one of the site's readers (supposedly) works at XFX, and provided paper proof that the Radeon R9 370 is in the system, ready to launch next month. Up to this point, I think this is the best hint we've seen. It's... Read more...
Yesterday, NVIDIA announced the launch of its GeForce GTX 960M and GTX 950M mobile GPUs. The superior SKU, the GTX 960M, features a 1096 MHz core clock, 2500 MHz GDDR5 memory, and 640 CUDA cores. “So, if you’ve been itching to take your gaming on the go with a portable notebook design, now’s your chance to play with the big boys,” bragged NVIDIA. ASUS is definitely playing with the big boys with its all-new Republic of Gamers (ROG) G501 gaming notebook. The G501 measures just 0.81-inches thick and weighs in at 4.54 pounds. The chassis is constructed out of aluminum and features red highlights along... Read more...
Last year, NVIDIA delivered GeForce GTX 980M and 970M GPUs, which offered mobile gamers a no-compromise solution in a mid- to large-size notebook form-factor. Now, NVIDIA is extending its GTX 900M series with the introduction of the GTX 960M and 950M. NVIDIA is hoping to prove that the race to deliver thin (less than one-inches thick) and light notebooks doesn’t have to mean that graphics performance has to suffer. Both the GTX 960M and 950M support DirectX 12, feature Maxwell architecture, include 640 CUDA cores, and are built on a 28nm process. However, that’s where the similarities end. The... Read more...
If you spent any time on the site or digging for news from GDC last week, you probably heard that NVIDIA’s CEO Jen Hsun Huang crashed one of EPIC’s talks at the show to unveil the company’s next flagship graphics card, the GeForce GTX Titan X. The only details Jen Hsun revealed were that the Maxwell-based GPU powering the card packed 8 billion transistors and that it was paired to a whopping 12GB of memory.Well, we can’t disclose any more official details just yet, but can tell you that a shiny, new GeForce GTX Titan X has arrived on the lab and we’ll be putting it through its paces shortly...The...

At this week's Game Developers Conference in San Francisco, "VR" was a definite buzzword. You simply couldn't avoid it. Valve announced a solution, as did AMD. Even NVIDIA unveiled a monstrous graphics card that promises to be powerful enough to provide a proper, immersive VR experience. With this spring's GDC now done and over with, reports have begun to trickle out of Google's supposed interest in VR. Much like how the company has created a tuned Android for wearables, it looks like it could be doing the same for VR. It's being said that there are "tens of engineers" dedicated to the project,...

In case the brouhaha surrounding the 4GB framebuffer on NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 970 wasn't a strong enough indication, a lot of gamers want a full fast 4GB on their GPUs. Even those opting for more modest cards, it seems, such as the GTX 960. To give its customers more choice, EVGA has just rolled-out three brand-new GTX 960 models that pack 4GB of fast GDDR5 under-the-hood -- and no, this card doesn't suffer from the same sort of design caveat that the 970 does, so all 4GB is available, and all at the same speed. All three of EVGA's 4GB GTX 960s feature the same ACX 2.0 cooler, so their differences... Read more...
During one of EPIC’s “State Of Unreal Engine” briefing session out at the Game Developer’s Conference, Tim Sweeny talked about the need for more powerful GPU technology to bring us closer to true photo-realistic rendering. At that point in his talk, Sweeny asked if there was anyone in the room that could answer that call, and NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang entered the room carrying a box, concealed within a large jacket.NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang Reveals The GeForce GTX Titan XNIVIDA has their own conference—GTC—happening in about a week’s time, which is where the company usually announces next-gen GPU...

NVIDIA just wrapped up an event in San Francisco, where the Game Developers Conference (GDC) is currently underway. The company unveiled a new Android TV streamer, game console, and supercomputer as NVIDIA’s Jen Hsun Huang calls it, all wrapped up in a single, ultra-slim device—the new NVIDIA SHIELD. The NVIDIA SHIELD Console And Wireless SHIELD Controller   In the lead-up to tonight’s event, an invitation from NVIDIA’s CEO was sent out with the title “Made To Game”, claiming that the product that would be shown was “more than 5 years in the making” and that it would “redefine the future of...

The folks at BOXX are no strangers to crafting some of the world's most advanced workstation PCs, but its latest APEXX 5 still somehow manages to kick things up a notch. This might be a good time to rest your fist under your jaw, because your salivary glands might get overly excited. The "5" in the APEXX 5 name represents the fact that five GPUs can be installed, which at the current time would be composed of a Quadro K2200 dedicated to viewport duties, and four Tesla K40s to handle computation. A wide-range of other GPU configurations exist, but that's the only one that utilizes 5 GPUs. Want 4x... Read more...
