NVIDIA, a major player in the graphics chip market, announced today that it's winding down its Icera modem operations in the second quarter of its fiscal 2016 and is open to selling off the technology. So ends NVIDIA's short-lived plans to break into the smartphone market, as it's now focused on other categories, including gaming, automotive, and cloud computing. The chip maker acquired UK-based Icera in 2011 for $367 million and, at the time, had big plans of getting into mobile. Icera was an attractive buy for NVIDIA because of its baseband technology, and in particular its line of software modems... Read more...
Yesterday we brought you a slew of new back-to-school computers and tablets from Acer, and today we’re diving into a brand new display offering from the company — and boy is it featured-packed. The new XR341CKA bring with it 34-inches of curved screen gaming-oriented goodness with a zero-frame design and 21:9 aspect ratio. The IPS panel has a resolution of 3,440x1440 and a variable refresh rate courtesy of NVIDIA G-SYNC. The panel will deftly sync up with your NVIDIA graphics card’s render rate, which should do wonders to help minimize input lag and screen tearing (the display maxes out at 75Hz).... Read more...
NVIDIA's Maxwell architecture has already torn up the gaming world, thanks to cards like the GeForce GTX Titan X and the GeForce GTX 980. NVIDIA recently took time to bring that same Maxwell goodness over the workstation market as well and the result is the new Quadro M6000, NVIDIA's new highest-end workstation platform. Like the Titan X, the M6000 is based on the full-fat version of the Maxwell GPU, the G200. Also, like the GeForce GTX Titan X, the Quadro M6000 has 12GB of GDDR5, 3072 GPU cores, 192 texture units (TMUs), and 96 render outputs (ROPs). At first glance, the M6000 may seem like a...

ASUS took the wraps off its ROG GR6, a tiny PC with some serious hardware. The system is meant to be your LAN party go-to or a full-time resident of a desk with limited space and it’s loaded with style. It’s also loaded with Windows 8.1 and Steam Big Picture, so can bring a controller with you to the next LAN event. The ROG GR6 feature an Intel Core i5 processor and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M graphics, as well as 8GB of memory and an SSD. It also has two USB ports on the front, as well as headphone and mic jacks. At the back, it has a lock port, additional USB and audio ports (including SPDIF), a... Read more...

Chromebooks based on Google’s Chrome OS are making some inroads in the notebook market — especially in education — but the same can’t be said for two other form-factors of Chrome OS-based computers: the Chromebox and the Chromebase. Acer hopes to at least shift some momentum towards Chromebases (all-in-one Chrome OS desktops) with the introduction of the aptly named Acer Chromebase. The focal point of the Acer Chromebase is of course its massive 21.5-inch display, which packs in Full HD resolution (1080p). Acer also says that this is the first Chromebase to come with a touch display (10-point multi-touch).... Read more...
There's an old adage that says you have to spend money to make money, and if that's truly the case, AMD better think long and hard about its investments, or lack thereof. According to a Chinese-language report, the Sunnyvale chip designer's quarterly R&D spending has declined since 2012 and is at the lowest level since 2004. Prior to that, AMD's spending was flat through 2011 before dipping down to $238 million, which is how much it spent on R&D last quarter. Meanwhile, rival NVIDIA has switched places with AMD over the past several years and has increased R&D spending... Read more...
EVGA today announced its new GeForce GTX 980 HYBRID graphics card that is equipped with an all-in-one, self-contained water cooling unit. According to EVGA, this is the ultimate plug and play solution as no maintenance is required from the user. The water cooling solution features an intelligent wiring system so that your case doesn’t become a cluttered mess, a copper base to improve heat transfer, near silent operation, and a built-in 120mm radiator and fan. There is also additional cooling for the VRM and memory. When all is said and done, EVGA claims that its water-cooled GTX 980 card is roughly... Read more...
NVIDIA released its Quadro M6000 at last week's GPU Technology Conference, but interestingly, it was without much fanfare. Perhaps that has something to do with the card belonging to the professional market and NVIDIA doesn't feel the need to trumpet in a new release, but this thing deserves that. As the "M" in its name implies, this is a Maxwell-based Quadro - the first of its kind. Just as with the desktop GeForce series, the move from Kepler to Maxwell on Quadro offers a slew of benefits, from improved general performance (in some cases up to 2.5x) to increased power efficiency. Specs-wise,... Read more...
One of the highlights of today’s opening keynote at the NVIDIA GPU Technology Conference in San Jose (GTC) was NVIDIA CEO, Jen-Hsun Huang’s invited special guest, Tesla CEO, Elon Musk and the “fireside chat” the two were scheduled to hold. Frankly, it was a bit shorter than expected, but when two visionaries take the stage, time does tend to fly, figuratively and literally. There’s no question, Jen-Hsun Huang is a visionary when it comes to visual computing, but Musk, Musk thinks way outside the box on a lot of things – from Electric Vehicles, to Hyperloop supersonic transport,...

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...
Titan X is finally here, and as our own Marco Chiappetta noted in his in-depth review, the graphics card is freakin’ fast (and overclockable, to boot). You can head out now to pick up an NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan X for your rig – or you can lay down some extra cash for a custom build from a boutique PC maker. With the news embargo safely behind them, Maingear, Origin PC, and others have been showing off systems that can be customized with Titan X. Maingear X-CUBEs“Maingear prides itself in offering the best in gaming and the NVIDIA Titan X is the next generation video card for gamers who demand... Read more...
A couple of weeks back at GDC, in a bit of a surprise move considering NVIDIA’s CEO Jen Hsun Huang just left the stage at the company’s own GPU Technology Conference (GTC), the GeForce GTX Titan X was unveiled. The unveiling, which took place during one of EPIC’s talks, was somewhat casual and only a couple of details were disclosed. Jen Hsun said that GeForce GTX Titan X cards featured 12GB of memory and a GPU that packed in roughly 8 billion transistors. Besides whatever we could discern from a few quick pictures, no other details were given.Today though, we can give you the full scoop.... Read more...
NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang is about to get the party started at this year’s GPU Technology Conference (GTC), which is being held in San Jose, California. We’re certain that NVIDIA’s monster GeForce GTX Titan X will make an appearance but the real kicker might come from Tony Stark Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla Motors. Musk is scheduled to join Jen-Hsun on stage for perhaps a big announcement relating to automobiles. We already know that NVIDIA technology is used in the Model S, so perhaps we’ll hear about a Tegra X1 announcement for the upcoming Model X and Model III electric vehicles. You can watch...
