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...
NVIDIA's new Pascal GPU architecture has been taking the PC graphics market by storm since its introduction in early May. The leading-edge semiconductor powerhouse, in addition to lighting up pixels, has been burning up its balance sheets as well, with strong sales of GeForce, Quadro and Tesla product lines driving record revenues and a brisk uptick in the company stock price. For NVIDIA's core gamer customer base, the GeForce GTX 1080 and 1070 kicked-off the Pascal party, followed by the introduction of the more mid-range GeForce GTX 1060, and then finally the monstrous NVIDIA Titan X. With the... Read more...
Life is good for NVIDIA. The GPU maker reported record revenue of $1.43 billion for the second quarter ended July 31, 2016, up an impressive 24 percent from $1.15 billion a year earlier and a gain of 9 percent sequentially from $1.30 billion in the previous quarter. After paying the bills, NVIDIA was left with a profit of $253 million for the quarter, up a mind boggling 873 percent year-over-year and 29 percent from a quarter ago. "Strong demand for our new Pascal-generation GPUs and surging interest in deep learning drove record results," said Jen-Hsun Huang, co-founder and chief executive officer,... Read more...
The first release candidate of the 4.8 Linux kernel has just been unleashed, which means its stable release is not too far behind. This particular version packs a serious wallop, so let's dive right in. For starters, there's some serious graphics love in 4.8, which includes initial NVIDIA Pascal support. That support relates to the open-source Nouveau driver, and is quite minimal at this point: it just adds mode-setting support. For users of Pascal-based graphics cards in Linux, NVIDIA has been offering proprietary drivers since each card's respective launch (including the new GeForce GTX 1060).... Read more...
NVIDIA dropped a bomb a couple of weeks back and shocked almost everyone in the enthusiast community with the surprise announcement of the new, Pascal-based TITAN X. If you missed our original coverage, the story went something like this: NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang lost a bet, and out of the blue went and gave away a few TITAN X cards at a special AI event that was taking place at Stanford University. That may sound a little far-fetched, but the way this launch shook out, it seems somewhat plausible. Regardless, as soon as the announcement was posted, we’re sure many of you had two questions in...

If you're into graphics technology, you've probably run out of rags at this point to wipe up your drool with. NVIDIA kicked things off by introducing Pascal with its bodacious GeForce GTX 1080 graphics card and it's only slightly less impressive sibling, the GeForce GTX 1070, followed by a new Titan X card. And over on the workstation side, there's the recently announced Quadro P6000, the most beastly of them all, and an unannounced mobile Quadro GPU based on Pascal.While wandering the expo floor at SIGGRAPH 2016, the folks at Fudzilla came across laptop on a table connected to an external display....

NVIDIA has historically taken a somewhat different approach when announcing its newest Titan-branded graphics cards, that differs from the measured, methodical launches of its more mainstream consumer products. Tonight’s announcement, however, takes the cake. We just received details from NVIDIA regarding an upcoming ultra-powerful, Pascal-based Titan X, featuring a 12 billion transistor GPU, codenamed GP102. The email’s subject began with “SURPRISE” and the body started with, “It began with a bet”. NVIDIA Ceo Jen-Hsun Huang With Pascal-Powered GeForce GTX Titan X NVIDIA is obviously having a little...

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 reported over the weekend that a few different vendors have been teasing their upcoming GeForce GTX 1060 models, which for an unreleased card is quite interesting, but it has helped increase the momentum of NVIDIA's hype train. Now, ZOTAC has decided to get in on the action by announcing its own models that are going to cater to those with SFF builds: two ITX versions of the GeForce GTX 1060. Unfortunately, ZOTAC hasn't been able to actually show us what its ITX models look like yet, but an example of what the company's GeForce GTX 960 ITX edition looked like last generation can be seen below....
