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...
At this point, we’re sure you’re all aware of the goodness that is NVIDIA’s Pascal architecture and the GeForce GTX 10 series that is built around an array of Pascal-based GPUs. If you’re not – shame on you – you’ve been slacking on your tech homework and we order you to check out our coverage of Pascal and the GeForce GTX 10 series, in enthusiast, mainstream, and mobile flavors. Heck, check out this round-up too, while you’re at it.What you’ll find, after you finish your reading assignments, is that NVIDIA’s Pascal-based GPUs are efficient and relatively power friendly, including the monstrous...

Asus is celebrating the 10th anniversary of its Republic of Gamers (ROG) brand this year. The manufacturer launched its ROG line in 2006 and has since developed a wide range of gaming products under the brand, including some monstrous gaming notebooks like the one we'll be showing you here. With the arrival of NVIDIA’s Pascal architecture this summer, the hulking systems are getting a shot in the arm, so we brought Asus’ flagship mobile gaming machine, the ROG G752VS XB78K, in house to see what you get when you go big. The efficiency of the Pascal architecture has made for mobile GPUs that are... Read more...
Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1050 Ti The moment has finally arrived. After nearly two months of speculation, NVIDIA has finally pulled the wraps off its new entry-level GeForce GTX 1050 and GTX 1050 Ti graphics cards. NVIDIA is confident that these budget cards won't drain your wallet and will allow you to enjoy your favorite games at 1080p/60fps. Although NVIDIA isn’t ready to divulge all of the specifications for the new cards just yet, it did let us know that both GP107 GPUs feature a 135mm2 die size, 3.3 billion transistors and a 128-bit memory interface. The GTX 1050, as we’ve previously reported,... Read more...
A good rule of thumb when purchasing a gaming laptop is to buy one with the fastest GPU you can afford. Unlike desktop PCs, you usually can't rip out the graphics adapter and upgrade to something faster (not in most cases, anyway), so when that once shiny and fast laptop starts feeling a little sluggish, you're looking at dialing down in-game settings until you've saved enough scratch to buy a new laptop. That's an expensive proposition (it's called throwing the baby out with the bath water), but if gaming on the go is what you're after, you don't have much choice in the matter.That's still the...

Gears of War 4 is one of the most highly anticipated game launches coming this fall, and it will be available on both Xbox One and PC gaming platforms. The folks at NVIDIA are making it easier to obtain the game, as it will provide Gears of War 4 free for anyone that purchases a GeForce GTX 1080 or GeForce GTX 1070 graphics cards. Although Microsoft recommends at least a GeForce GTX 1060 for PC gamers looking to blast away their foes in Gears of War 4, NVIDIA reckons that the GeForce GTX 1070 and GeForce GTX 1080 will provide the best visual experience (hence their inclusion in this promotion)....

Virtual Reality (VR) is the “next big thing” in the gaming arena, and MSI is delving into the market feet first with the world’s first VR backpack. Dubbed the VR One, MSI bills the device as the thinnest and lightest backpack PC system ever made. While VR systems like the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift traditionally leave you tethered to your desktop (or laptop) with wires, the VR One gives you complete freedom to walk around and fully interact with your virtual environment with ease. MSI describes the VR One as having a “futuristic robot machine style” and we won’t disagree with that assertion. If you’ve... Read more...
NVIDIA pushed the gaming sector forward with its Pascal architecture, perhaps more so than any new GPU architecture in recent memory when factoring in both performance and price. However, gamers aren't the only ones who stand to benefit. The GPU maker today announced some new additions to its Pascal-based deep learning platform, the Tesla P4 and Tesla P40. These GPUs feature specialized inference instructions based on 8-bit (INT8) operations, delivering 45x faster response than CPUs and a 4x improvement over GPU solutions launched less than a year ago, NVIDIA says. The systems that these GPUs will... Read more...
After launch its high-end GeForce GTX 1080 enthusiast-class GPU earlier this summer, NVIDIA has been quick to flesh out its Pascal family from top to bottom. Slotting in above the GTX 1080, we’ve seen the release of a new Titan X. Coming in below, NVIDIA launched the GTX 1070 and the GTX 1060 (in both 3GB and 6GB versions). Now NVIDIA is ready to take the Pascal family deeper into entry-level territory with the GeForce GTX 1050. Still based on a 16nm FinFET manufacturing process, the GTX 1050 has just 768 CUDA cores compared to 1152 for the GTX 1060 (3GB) and a staggering 3584 or the Titan X. Base... Read more...
Today is a massive day for gaming notebooks thanks to the launch of NVIDIA's latest mobile-bound GeForce graphics cards. As covered in our launch article, these GPUs don't feature the "M" that we've seen in years' past - these are full-blown desktop chips. That means one thing: they're powerful. Seriously powerful. As expected with any new GPU launch, a slew of vendors have today announced their latest wares, and that includes EVGA. The company announced its SC17 17-inch notebook back at CES, but at the time it shipped with the 900-series GeForce chips. Now, it's been upgraded to support the GTX... Read more...
The folks at NVIDIA have gone and done a bad thing. By building mobile versions of Pascal, they've went and rendered all of us with a previous generation gaming laptop suddenly feeling inadequate with our hardware and wanting for an upgrade. Seriously, check out these benchmarks we ran. The good news is notebook makers are starting to roll out laptops based on NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 10 series GPU, including MSI, which is excited as we are about Pascal. "NVIDIA’s GTX 10 Series GPU ushers a new era of mobile gaming where mind-blowing visual performance is no longer restricted to desktops, and VR is... Read more...
