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...
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...
Doom Powered By NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 And Vulkan API At a private briefing with NVIDIA, representatives from id software came out on stage to show off the upcoming game Doom running on the just-announced GeForce GTX 1080 graphics card using the Vulkan API. It was the first public demonstration of the game using both NVIDIA’s new flagship and the next-gen API, which is a low-overhead, cross-platform graphics and compute API akin to DirectX 12 and AMD’s Mantle. We’ve got some live-action from the demo available for your viewing pleasure here... Doom Running On The GTX 1080 Using Vulkan In the initial... 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...

Yesterday, during his keynote address at GTC 2016, NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang made a number of interesting announcements and disclosures. We saw Apple co-founder Steve “Woz” Wozniak take a virtual tour of Mars and witnessed the official unveiling of NVIDIA’s Tesla P100, which is based on the company’s bleeding-edge, GP100 GPU. GP100 leverages NVIDIA’s forward-looking Pascal GPU architecture and features 16GB of HBM2 memory, all built using TSMC’s 16nm FinFET manufacturing process. The GP100 is massive with a 600mm2 die, which is about the size of current gen high-end Maxwell GPUs, though when you... Read more...
NVIDIA just pulled the wraps off its fastest GPU and compute engine yet: the Tesla P100. This new GPU powerhouse is based on NVIDIA’s next generation Pascal architecture, which means that it’s built on a 16nm FinFET process. But even with thoroughly modern FinFET process tech, the Tesla P100’s die size measures 600mm2 due in part to the 15.3 billion transistors that comprise the new compute engine — nearly twice that of Maxwell, for reference. The specifications of the Tesla P100 are second to none, as double-precision performance is rated at 5.3 teraflops (TFLOPs), while single-precision performance... Read more...
NVIDIA hit it out of the park with its fourth quarter earnings, that the company reported this afternoon. The silicon valley graphics and system-on-a-chip titan outpaced last year’s already strong performance with revenue of $1.4 billion (a 12 percent increase from the same quarter a year ago). Net income came in at $297 million, or 35 cents per share. NVDA's full fiscal year 2016 was reported at $5.01 billion, which was a 7 percent increase over fiscal 2015. The company’s quarterly performance far outpaced analysts’ expectations and NVIDIA was rewarded with a 7 percent share boost in after hours... Read more...
At last year’s CES NVIDIA’s CEO Jen-Hsun Huang unveiled the original Tegra X1-based Drive PX digital cockpit computer and discussed some of the difficulties associated with self-driving cars and the technologies that would be needed to overcome them. He discussed deep learning, deep neural nets, and the massive amounts of data that need to be collected and processed to ensure self-driving cars are not only safe, but instill confidence in the passengers and provide a good experience. Since then, Jen-Hsun claims that “several thousand man-years of effort have gone into developing... Read more...
Although NVIDIA revealed some high level information on its next generation Pascal GPU architecture earlier this year, the company revealed some more interesting details this week at NVIDIA’s GPU Technology Conference in Japan. NVIDIA announced that Pascal will have close to a 2x performance-per-watt improvement over the current Maxwell GPU architecture, which is built on a 28nm process. It’s also been revealed that Pascal will be produced using TSMC’s 16nm FinFET process, which will put it right up against AMD which is moving to use 14nm/16nm with two new Graphics Core Next (GCN) products in 2016....

NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang kicked off the company's 2015 GPU Technology Conference today with his keynote that focused heavily on "deep learning" and analytics that essentially teach computers to think, recognize and react like a human (AI). Huang disclosed a number of details regarding the just-launched GeForce GTX Titan X as well, along with some news regarding the company’s upcoming Pascal GPU architecture and future-looking initiatives in autonomous driving, accompanied by a special guest, Tesla CEO, Elon Musk. In case you missed out on our full review, we have all of the GeForce GTX Titan X’s... Read more...
