If you’ve already read Marco’s excellent analysis of the GeForce GTX 1060, then you know that NVIDIA has produced a compelling graphics card for the mainstream market that offers respectable performance and extremely low power consumption (and if you haven’t read the review, you can find it here). And following the official reveal of a new GeForce card came a flurry of announcements from NVIDIA’s graphics partners; all of which are looking corner the market with multiple variants catering to the widest pool of gamers. So far, we’ve seen numerous entries from ASUS, MSI, EVGA and Gigabyte (among... Read more...

A couple of weeks back, just in time to rain on AMD’s Radeon RX 480 parade, NVIDIA revealed a few details about the GeForce GTX 1060. We didn’t have actual performance numbers to share, but NVIDIA revealed GTX 1060 Founder’s Edition’s pricing, core count, clocks, memory configuration, TDP, and physical characteristics. They also claimed the card would offer performance in the same class as the GeForce GTX 980. Considering the fact that the GP106 GPU at the heart of the GeForce GTX 1060 has roughly half of the resources of NVIDIA’s current flagship GeForce GTX 1080, and NVIDIA put the 1080 up against...

We'll also be chatting about NVIDIA's SHIELD Android TV device now with Plex Media Server capabilities, the ASUS ROG Strix 15-inch gaming laptop, HP's super thin 2016 Spectre ultrabook and more! You’ll be able to follow along either via YouTube or in a live Google Hangouts session, so be sure to tune in tomorrow, July 19th, at 2PM EST.... Read more...
NVIDIA has officially stepped into the realm of video game design and it's timing couldn't have been better. No, NVIDIA probably isn't going to crank out triple-A titles or become the next Bethesda with iconic franchises under its belt, but NVIDIA's VR Funhouse title for the HTC Vive comes at point when virtual reality needs some killer content to go along with early hardware solutions. It's also free! That's right folks, unlike real live carnivals, there's no admission here. VR Funhouse features seven different carnival games, all beautifully rendered with plenty of eye candy. While several early... Read more...
As we’ve detailed a number of times here at HotHardware, the NVIDIA SHIELD Android TV console is a powerful media streaming and gaming device that features a beefy Tegra X1 processor and an integrated 256-core Maxwell-based GPU (check out Marco’s full review here). While we’ve seen plenty of streaming devices come to the market with potent quad-core SoCs before, none of them are packing the kind of graphics hardware and Android TV polish lurking inside the SHIELD. To that end, NVIDIA thought that it could use the standard SHIELD (16GB) and the SHIELD Pro (500GB) as a centerpiece for Plex Media... Read more...
NVIDIA and AMD have locked horns on the mid-range battlefield for graphics cards, the latter with its $200 (4GB) and $239 (8GB) Radeon RX 480, and the former responding with its $250 GeForce GTX 1060 ($300 for the Founder's Edition). Of course, it's the custom cards that are most interesting, and though the GTX 1060 is just two days removed from an official unveiling, companies like Gigabyte and ASUS are already teasing their own variants.Starting with ASUS, you can expect several custom versions of the GeForce GTX 1060, three of which it teased on its Republic of Gamers Facebook page. They include... Read more...
NVIDIA is launching an all-out assault on AMD in the PC graphics segment. In May, NVIDIA released the new graphics king: the GeForce GTX 1080. The company followed up on that beastly chip in June with slightly cut down GeForce GTX 1070. That trickledown effect is now reaching the mainstream market with the arrival of the GeForce GTX 1060. The GTX 1060 can be seen as a direct response to the AMD Radeon RX 480, which offers a ton of performance at the $200 price point. While still built using a 16nm FinFET process, the GP106 core on the GTX 1060 features 1280 CUDA cores; exactly half that of the... Read more...
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you probably already know that the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 is the new king of the hill in the graphics card arena. Based on a 16nm FinFET + VLSI manufacturing process, the Pascal-based GPU at the heart of the GTX 1080 packs four graphics processing clusters, 2560 CUDA cores, and has peak compute performance of around 8.2 TFLOPs. However, NVIDIA has an even more impressive beast that it is expected to unleash at Gamescom. And this snarling graphics menace is thought to bring balls-to-the-wall performance that will make even new GeForce GTX 1080 owners blush.... Read more...
We first brought you news about NVIDIA’s SHIELD Experience Upgrade 3.2 back in May, and the company just started pushing the update out to customers this week. As we’ve reported in the past, the SHIELD Experience Upgrade 3.2 brings with it a number of new features including YouTube 4K60 playback and support for HDR videos in the Netflix app. Other niceties include new available apps like VUDU (also with support for 4K), Spotify, WatchESPN, Disney Channel, Disney Junior, CNN Go, and Comedy Central. You’ll also find Dolby Atmos surround sound pass-through, drag-and-drop file sharing with Macs and... Read more...
There is one constant in the world of supercomputers: no one is going to be 'fastest' for long. In fact, some supercomputers can seem downright slow after only a couple of years, as hardware continues to become faster and more dense. Take for example Oak Ridge's TITAN supercomputer. Launched in 2013, this supercomputer managed to push about 20 petaFLOPs of throughput (17.59 pFLOPs LINPACK; 27 pFLOPs theoretical). At the time, that was downright mind-blowing. But consider TaihuLight, China's latest supercomputer, coming in at 93 petaFLOPs. For those who don't want to grab a calculator or exercise... Read more...
NVIDIA’s has yet to make an official announcement, however this past weekend Swedish gaming notebook manufacturer IVY listed their new notebooks as powered by NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1080M. The key feature of the GeForce GTX 1080M is the 8GB of video memory which spells higher resolution textures and screens. While the mobile GeForce GTX 1080M is undeniably slower than the desktop version, it looks like it will be giving the desktop GTX 980’s a run for their money. The GeForce GTX 980 featured 2048 CUDA cores, a base clock of 1126 MHz, a boost clock of 1216 MHz, and a total memory bandwidth of... Read more...
Remember that scene when Al Pacino playing the part of Scarface famously said, "Say hello to my little friend!"? Well now NVIDIA is bringing out the big gun in PCI Express form in what it considers the "most advanced data center GPU ever built," the Tesla P100, a crazy fast GPU accelerator based on NVIDIA's powerful Pascal architecture built on a 16nm FinFET manufacturing process. This is the second iteration of the Tesla P100, the first of which NVIDIA unveiled during GTX 2016 a couple of months ago. Though it's built on a fancy 16nm FinFET process, the GP100 GPU inside the Tesla P100 is quite... Read more...
In case you haven’t already noticed, we’re pretty big fans of the NVIDIA SHIELD. The Tegra X1-powered console runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow and is part media streamer and part gaming box. And thankfully, NVIDIA has been very adamant about keeping the SHIELD fresh over its lifetime with a bevy of updates. Last month, we brought you news that NVIDIA’s SHIELD Experience Upgrade 3.2 would bring some niceties like 4K VUDU content, in-app voice search and HDR support for the Netflix app, 4K support for the YouTube app, and the enabling of HDR GameStream for use with Pascal graphics cards. But what NVIDIA... Read more...
