A couple of weeks back, NVIDIA unveiled a family of new professional Quadro cards, based on the company’s Pascal GPU architecture. The latest additions to the Quadro line-up run the gamut in terms of features and capabilities, from the low-power, small form factor Quadro P400 to the gargantuan, ultra-powerful Quadro GP100. Smack dab in the middle of the line-up are a pair of mid-range offerings, the Quadro P4000 and Quadro P2000, which we’ll be featuring here.The Quadro P4000 and P2000 are both single-slot, capable solutions that target more mainstream professional-graphics market segments, very...

Things are definitely looking good over in NVIDIA land these days. Yesterday afternoon, the company announced its fiscal Q4 2017 and full-year fiscal 2017 earnings and the results were quite impressive. Revenue for the quarter shot up 55 percent to $2.17 billion compared to the same period a year ago. Likewise, full-year revenue rose 38 percent year-over-year to $6.91 billion.NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang Non-GAAP earnings per diluted share for the quarter were reported at $1.13 compared to just $0.52 a year earlier, while the full-year metric was $3.06, representing an 83 percent increase.

The same awesome architecture that powers NVIDIA's latest generation graphics cards can now be found throughout the maker's entire professional Quadro line for the desktop with top to bottom solutions. We're of course talking about Pascal, the game-changing architecture that made playing titles at a 4K resolution on a single graphics card possible. Pascal now powers half a dozen more Quadro cards that flesh out its existing lineup. Having access to Pascal on the engineering side will provide a boost in performance in several categories. VR, photo-realism, and deep learning technologies, all of... Read more...
One of the biggest moments in the history of 3D graphics is when NVIDIA released its Pascal architecture last year. The generational leap in graphics performance lived up to the hype with higher end parts negating the need to run multiple graphics cards in SLI for consistently smooth gaming at 4K. But while Pascal has barely had time to stretch its legs, NVIDIA is already looking ahead to its next GPU architecture, Volta, which may release later this year. Rumor has it that NVIDIA has tapped TSMC to build Volta GPUs on a 12-nanometer FinFET manufacturing process. It is a loose rumor—basically a... Read more...
If history tells us anything, it is that NVIDIA will eventually release a GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics card. There were rumors that it would make a debut at the Consumer Electronics Show, but that event has now come and went. While that is mildly disappointing, do not be too bummed out about it—apparently NVIDIA is still planning to launch the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, which will be available around PAX East 2017.That is not confirmed, of course. However, here is what we know. NVIDIA posted a job listing last month for a Senior Marketing Manager and outlined some very specific duties the chosen candidate... Read more...
NVIDIA is bringing its cloud-based GeForce Now game service to PCs and Macs, the company announced at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. Previously exclusive to Shield device owners, it was only a matter of time before NVIDIA invited PC gamers to the fold, many of which lack the necessary hardware to play high-end titles. That is what NVIDIA is banking on, anyway. GeForce Now is powered by NVIDIA's mighty Pascal architecture, and specifically its GeForce GTX 1060 and GTX 1080 graphics cards, which have been outfitted in the company's cloud data centers. When gamers register for GeForce... Read more...
To go along with Intel’s Kaby Lake refresh, MSI has revised its gaming desktops, making slight tweaks that will be appreciated by gamers. The changes affect the Aegis, Nightblade and Trident series, all of which are rocking GeForce GTX 10-Series graphics cards. Design-wise, the Aegis now includes a handy headset holder on the side along with a carbon fiber-esque pattern that is applied sparingly to the front of the chassis. MSI VR Link gives you quick access to a front-mounted HDMI port, which is a boon for those using HTC Vive or Oculus Rift VR headsets.  You’ll also find a handle on the... Read more...
Everyone in their grandma is announcing new products based around Intel Kaby Lake and NVIDIA Pascal at CES 2017, and Gigabyte is no different. The company has two new dedicated gaming notebooks that feature the CPU/GPU pairings: the P56 and the Sabre 15. The P56 manages to cram in a Core i7-7700HQ processor and a GeForce GTX 1070 graphics and into a 15.6-inch frame. The notebook comes standard with a 1080p display, but if you pony up some additional dollars, you can opt for a 4K (3840x2160) display. The P56 features an island-style backlit RGB keyboard with individually-lit keys (giving users a... Read more...
Dell is placing a big emphasis on gaming notebooks this year at CES, and it’s doing so with its own-branded Inspiron 7000 Series and the venerable Alienware notebook lineup. The Inspiron 14 and 15 7000 gaming notebooks are of course powered by the latest Intel Kaby Lake processors -- in this case, you have a choice of Core i5-7300HQ or Core i7-7700HQ processors. Systems come from the factory configured with 4GB to 16GB of RAM, but each supports up to 32GB. Dell also gives you plenty of options when it comes to display choices (14-inch or 15.6-inch), as you have two 1080p IPS panels to choose (anti-glare... Read more...
NVIDIA hit a home run with its Pascal GPU architecture, which is a savory combination of performance and power efficiency. Depending on the part, there can be some impressive overclocking headroom available as well. That was certainly case when teams of overclockers armed with a GALAX GeForce GTX 1060 Hall of Fame (HOF) Edition graphics cards pushed Pascal past 3GHz, nearly doubling the card's base clock.Pascal GPUs are already some of the highest clocked graphics chips in existence. Getting to 3GHz and beyond, however, is out of reach for the average person. It requires a willing card, overclocking... Read more...
While it didn't seem to be a major focus of NVIDIA's when it launched the GeForce GTX 1060 6GB, the same model card also has a 3GB card available, which can be found virtually anywhere today. So how's such a card making headlines today? Because soon, according to the latest rumor, the chip inside that model will be changing. Both the 3GB and 6GB GTX 1060s launched with the GP106 architecture, not the GP104 architecture of the high-end GTX 1070 and GTX 1080. If this rumor proves true, though, the GTX 1060 3GB will begin to be built on GP104 chips that are not up to snuff for either GTX 1070 or GTX... 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...
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...

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...
