It has been widely expected for the past two months that NVIDIA would be releasing a new lower-end graphics card based on its Pascal architecture, and after a few leaks and a lot of rumors, the company finally coughed up the confirmation last week. This release will be a bit of a one-two punch for NVIDIA, as it'll be tackling AMD's Radeon RX 460 and 470 series head-on with its GeForce GTX 1050 Ti, and it also fills an even lower tier with its GTX 1050. The GTX 1050 Ti should prove to be a great 1080p gaming card, with some potential for 1440p gaming in certain titles (most likely MOBA-esque). With... Read more...
What was previously known as the Nintendo NX is finally here. Nintendo today just unveiled its Switch gaming console which pretty much confirms all the rumors that we’ve been hearing about the hybrid gaming console for the past few months. Yes, the Switch has detachable controllers. Yes, the Switch can be docked to play games on your big screen TV. And yes, the Switch features an NVIDIA Tegra processor and GeForce-class graphics. As promised last night, Nintendo revealed all this morning with a three-minute trailer which showcases the console's abilities. The trailer starts off showing a man playing... Read more...
It’s happening! After months of leaks, speculation, and encouraging words from game publishers, the Nintendo NX will make its global debut tomorrow. Thursday morning at 10 AM EST, Nintendo will release a preview trailer that will give us just a glimpse at what gamers will have look forward to when the console hits store shelves in March. We already know that the Nintendo NX will be a hybrid console, as that revelation was confirmed by Pokémon Company head Tsunekazu Ishihara. “The NX is trying to change the concept of what it means to be a home console device or a handheld device,” said Ishihara....

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...
We're not the only ones who read the rumors, you can bet that hardware companies do as well. One of the rumors swirling right now is that NVIDIA's getting ready to release a GeForce GTX 1050 Ti graphics card, which will bring the awesome power of Pascal to gamers on a tighter budget. It appears AMD wants to steal some thunder from that launch by marking down its Radeon RX 470 graphics card.The Radeon RX 470 debuted at $179, a reasonable price for a reasonably fast graphics card. However, it's about to get cheaper—the folks at TweakTown believe they have it on good authority that AMD will cut $10... Read more...
If you’re looking for a budget Pascal-based graphics card with plenty of overhead for overclocking, it looks as though NVIDIA could have a winner on its hands with the upcoming GeForce GTX 1050 Ti. Although we don’t expect 4K or even 1440p gaming prowess from the GTX 1050 Ti, it should provide plenty of performance for those that game at 1080p. When we last visited the GTX 1050 Ti, it was reported that the card would have 4GB RAM, 768 CUDA cores and feature base and boost clocks of 1290 MHz and 1382 MHz respectively. However, the custom GTX 1050 Ti that is now making the rounds has a base... Read more...
Over the past month, we’ve gotten a clearer look at what to expect from NVIDIA’s new entry-level GeForce GTX 1050 series of graphics cards. In our most recent report, we learned that NVIDIA is planning both 2GB GTX 1050 and a 4GB GTX 1050 Ti variants. Today, we’re receiving confirmation of both the GTX 1050 Ti branding and the fact that the card will use the Pascal GP107 GPU. Images of a Chinese-based card also confirm 4GB of GDDR5 memory onboard the card and show that the GP107 is quite a bit smaller than the GP106 found inside the GTX 1060. If you’ll also notice that the PCB features a 6-pin... Read more...
The wait for Titanfall 2 is almost over. It will arrive to PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One at the end of next month. In the meantime, if you're looking for a reason to splurge on a graphics card upgrade for your computer, NVIDIA posted a few minutes of awesome game play footage showing the title running at a 4K Ultra HD resolution at 60 frames per second on a Titan X. Not that you have to go out and buy a Titan X to play Titanfall 2 at a 4K resolution at 60 FPS. Developer Respawn Entertainment recommends a GeForce GTX 1080 graphics card, along with an Intel Core i7-6700K processor (or equivalent),... Read more...
When enthusiasts think of NVIDIA, they typically think first and foremost about graphics cards. However, the company over the years has broadened its portfolio to include deep learning accelerators, gaming consoles, and even processing engines for self-driving cars. Today, NVIDIA is expanding on the last segment of its business by teasing Xavier. Xavier, which was announced at the European edition of the GPU Technology Conference, is an artificial intelligence (AI) supercomputer that was designed from the ground-up to be used for self-driving vehicles. Xavier is an SoC built around a custom 8-core... Read more...
We’ve already heard rumblings about NVIDIA’s upcoming budget GeForce GTX 1050 GPU series, and today we’re learning even more info about the cards that are aimed at the ultimate penny pinching gamers. We’ve learned that there will reportedly be two versions available, both of which are based on the GP107 graphics core: the standard GeForce GTX 1050 with 2GB of RAM and the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti with 4GB of RAM onboard. The GeForce GTX 1050 is said to come with 640 CUDA cores, which by far makes its the weakest member of the Pascal family. The base clock is dialed in at 1354 MHz, while the boost clock...

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)....

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...

Sometimes, it's best to accept the fact that you can't do everything yourself, and where microprocessors are concerned, that can be critical. Sometimes there's just no sense in reinventing the wheel. However, Samsung has been driving to build in-house graphics IP for its Exynos mobile chipsets for quite some time. According to new rumors, though, the Korean company has put that idea on hold, and is instead considering licensing GPU IP from other major players like AMD and / or NVIDIA. According to industry sources at SamMobile, Samsung is in talks with both AMD... Read more...
