Lenovo is pitching the emerging interest in virtual reality as a reason for developers to consider its new ThinkStation P320 workstations. The world's top PC maker (in terms of market share) used Develop3D Live as the launchpad for its new systems, which featured Intel Xeon and 7th generation Core i3/i5/i7 (Kaby Lake) processor options paired with NVIDIA Quadro graphics. Buyers can opt for a full-tower enclosure supporting up to a Quadro P4000 (Pascal) graphics card, or a small form factor (SFF) setup with up to two Quadro P1000 GPUs. Either setup can be configured with an Intel Xeon E3-1200 v6... Read more...
Gigabyte is getting ready to beef up its arsenal of Pascal parts with no less than three GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics cards. Two of them will be marketed under its Aorus gaming division, leaving one with Gigabyte's own branding. All three will feature custom cooling solutions with three fans keeping the GPU nice and chilly, along with overclocked specs straight out of the factory. Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Gaming OC 11G Starting with Gigabyte's own branded GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Gaming OC 11G, this is the slowest clocked card of the bunch, though it's a still a speed demon in its own right: OC...

Just a week ago, Vince “K|NGP|N” Lucido was turning heads with a massive overclock on an EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Founder Edition. K|NGP|N was able to take the newly released graphics card to a stunning 2.5GHz using liquid nitrogen. Even the onboard GDDR5X memory received some well-deserved attention, overclocking to 12.5Gbps. To put those numbers in perspective, the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti has a base clock of 1480MHz and boosts to 1582MHz, while the card’s memory has a stock speed of 11Gbps. Now K|NGP|N is back at it again, using liquid nitrogen to eek another 500MHz out of the EVGA GeForce GTX 1080... Read more...
Among geeks like us, one of the biggest questions surrounding NIntendo's hybrid Switch console is what exactly makes the custom Tegra system-on-chip (SoC) inside different from existing Tegra parts. It turns out the answer is nothing. It has never been a secret that the Switch is powered by Tegra, but the assumption has always been that it's a customized version specific to the Switch. Nope. Following up on a recent teardown of the Switch, the folks at Tech Insights say an in-depth evaluation of the die structure reveals the Tegra part to be a Tegra X1 T210 featuring four Cortex A75 cores, four...

NVIDIA may be best known as a leader in computer graphics for enthusiasts and professionals, but the company is quickly branching out into other lucrative industries like GPU-based deep learning. NVIDIA is also becoming increasingly entangled in the world of self-driving cars with its DRIVE PX platforms. With that in mind, NVIDIA has just announced that it is teaming up with Bosch to develop a new computing platform for self-driving cars. The AI computer will leverage NVIDIA’s upcoming Xavier SoC, and for now is being called DRIVE PX Xavier (although it is likely that it will be marketed as Drive... Read more...
As you no doubt already know, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti is the fastest gaming graphics card to ever be unleashed on the enthusiast market. Taking the place of the already impressive GeForce GTX 1080, the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti is more closely related to the Titan X, incorporates 11GB of 11Gbps GDDR5X memory, and has a price tag of $699. However, some people just aren’t content with the 1480MHz base and 1582Hz boost clocks of the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti. That’s where EVGA overclocking expert Kingpin comes into focus. Kingpin was able to overclock an EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Founders Edition that was... Read more...
Reports coming out of China indicate that Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) has inked deals with NVIDIA and Qualcomm to produce high performance computing (HPC) chips that will be used for artificial intelligence applications, among other things. That includes the fabrication of NVIDIA's next-generation Volta GPUs using a 12-nanometer FinFET manufacturing process. Rumors had surfaced in January that NVIDIA had tapped TSMC to build its Volta GPUs, and assuming the new reports are accurate, it would appear that contract negotiations have been finalized. TSMC certainly has the capacity.... Read more...
It takes some serious hardware to do the things that Facebook is able to do. In an effort to stay ahead of the technological curve, the social networking site announced today at the 2017 Open Compute Project (OCP) summit in Santa Clara a next-generation GPU server called Big Basin. It's the successor to the Big Sur GPU server announced in 2015 and it will help Facebook to continue leveraging artificial intelligence to power service like speech and text translations, photo classifiers, and real-time video classification. Big Basin was built in collaboration with Quanta Clout Technology (QCT), Facebook's... Read more...
NVIDIA is officially launching its most powerful gaming graphics card today, the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti. It was announced last week at the Game Developers Conference and pre-orders began shortly thereafter. However, the cards will begin shipping tomorrow, from on-line retailers, system builders, and add-in-board partners. The GeForce GTX 1080 Ti’s specifications may elicit some quizzical looks in light of previous-gen offerings, with its odd 11GB of GDDR5X RAM and 352-bit memory interface, but rest assured this card is an absolute beast. Though its memory complement, interface, and a few blocks within... Read more...
Back in late 2015, NVIDIA introduced the world to Jetson TX1, which crammed “supercomputer” performance into a platform that had a footprint smaller than that of a credit card. NVIDIA is back at it with the successor to the Jetson TX1 and it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that it’s called the Jetson TX2. NVIDIA says that Jetson TX2 can be used for “intelligent” factory robots, commercial drones and smart cameras. However, we’re sure that developers will be able to think of dozens of uses for the versatile platform to enable new classes of artificial intelligence (AI) driven products.... Read more...
Update 3/9/2017 - Our full review of the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, with copious benchmarks, is live here!If there's one thing that gets the average, self-respecting Tech-geek jazzed, it's the smell of fresh, new PC gaming hardware in the morning. As such, along with your morning dose of caffeinated something-or-other, we're here to unbox the all new NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti. The GeForce GTX 1080 Ti is NVIDIA's new flagship GPU for hardcore gamers that actually sports slightly more gaming horsepower than the mighty Titan X (minus a smallish 1GB of GDDR5X memory), but sells for almost half the price...

NVIDIA is making it easier than ever to relive and share your most awesome gaming moments. Although the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti was the headliner for NVIDIA’s appearance at GDC 2017 last night, ShadowPlay Highlights stands to also make a big impression on gamers. ShadowPlay Highlights is a new feature incorporated within the GeForce Experience that automatically captures your most ruthless killing sprees or that fantastic headshot that you pulled off as the time expired on the game clock. According to NVIDIA, these moments are identified automatically and saved for posterity’s sake. “Whether they be... Read more...

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...
