Last night, NVIDIA made waves with the announcement of the long-anticipated GeForce GTX 1080 Ti for gaming enthusiasts. The new graphics card has a GP102 core, 11GB of 11Gbps GDDR5X memory, and has peak compute performance that is slightly ahead of the Titan X, while offering a $500 lower price tag. But now that a new gaming Titan has entered the fray, what happens with the current GeForce GTX 1080? Thankfully, NVIDIA is instituting a price cut, which sees the GeForce GTX 1080 falling from $599 to just $499 effective immediately. When it comes to the GeForce GTX 1080 Founders Edition, it will receive... Read more...
NVIDIA just lifted the veil on its latest monster graphics card for gamers -- the long-rumored GeForce GTX 1080 Ti -- at an event this evening in San Francisco during the Game Developers Conference (GDC). The card will sit at the top of NVIDIA's Pascal-powered GeForce product stack alongside the mighty Titan X and GeForce GTX 1080, promising significant performance gains over the GTX 1080 and faster than Titan X-class performance, likely for a much lower price. However, pricing will be disclosed at an official unveiling later tonight, hosted by NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang. The card is an... Read more...
  It’s been a long time coming, but the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti is almost here. We had originally hoped to see NVIDIA’s latest high-end gaming card at Consumer Electronics Show this past January, but it wasn’t meant to be. But NVIDIA today confirmed that its latest Pascal-based graphics card will be unveiled next week. If you head to GeForce.com, you’ll presented with a countdown timer, which shows that we have just over six days left before the big announcement. That puts the launch right smack dab in the middle of GDC 2017, which runs from February 27th through March 3rd. And when you examine... Read more...
Ever since NVIDIA launched Pascal, the one card that enthusiasts have been champing (not chomping) at the bit for is the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti. An earlier rumor had NVIDIA announcing the much anticipated Ti variant at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas last month, but that did not happen. The speculation that followed was that NVIDIA might skip the Ti part entirely. Maybe it will, but according to new (unconfirmed) information making the rounds, the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti is only about a month away. Swedish-language website Nordic Hardware claims to have heard directly from graphics card... Read more...
We are not sure of the authenticity of this one, but over at one of Baido's Chinese-language web forums is a teardown of Nintendo's not-yet-released Switch console. If it turns out to be fake, then someone put a lot of time and effort to make it appear otherwise, as the part selection lines up with what Nintendo has revealed about the Switch. The cramped layout looks legitimate to us as well.It is also possible that these naked shots reflect a prototype design and not the final console. Either way, it's an interesting view of the system's guts.The first thing that stands out is the 4,130 mAh lithium-ion... Read more...
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. Nearly... Read more...
NVIDIA announced an updated SHIELD TV bundle back at the Consumer Electronics Show, which offers a host of new features thanks to some fresh hardware and an Android Nougat based OS upgrade. The updated SHIELD TV, however, isn’t totally new. Internally, the device was still packing NVIDIA’s Tegra X1 SoC like the original, which, even after a couple of years on the market, is still an exceptionally strong performer. The new SHIELD TV also has the same memory and base storage configurations, and the SHIELD Remote is similar too. However, NVIDIA significantly shrunk down the chassis by eliminating... Read more...
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...

At CES 2017, NVIDIA launched its next generation SHIELD TV, which it claims has three times the compute performance of garden variety media streamers on the market and can interface with the Google Assistant. In addition, the new SHIELD TV has support for Spot, which are tiny microphone-equipped devices that you can scatter throughout your house (similar in concept to the Amazon Echo Dot). The new NVIDIA Shield TV is also running Shield Experience Upgrade 5.0. Thankfully, NVIDIA hasn’t forgotten about existing Shield TV owners, as it today announced that Shield Experience Upgrade 5.0, which is... 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...
In case you haven’t noticed, the PC gaming market is exploding. As we reported in the closing days of 2016, PC gaming software sales reached nearly $36 billion ($35.8 billion to be exact) during 2016, compared to just $6.6 billion for console game sales. Neither was able to touch mobile gaming revenues, however, which hit $40.6 billion during the full year of 2016. Now, Jon Peddie Research (JPR) offers a report on PC gaming hardware sales for 2016, and they likewise hit a record high. Hardware sales surged past the $30 billion mark for the first time ever, topping out at $30.6 billion. In... Read more...
