Today, we are going to take a look at gaming monitor from Acer with a blazing-fast 240Hz refresh rate and NVIDIA G-SYNC support. The Acer Predator XB252Q gaming monitor speaks clearly to both media buffs and hardcore gamers who have a penchant for fluidity and triple-digit frame rates. This display offers a Full HD (1080p) native resolution and an ultra-quick 240Hz refresh rate to complement the uber-high frame rates possible with a modern, high performance gaming PC. Toss in an attractive set of connectivity options, ports, and a few other key bells and whistles and we have a formidable... Read more...
Remember that feeling you would get when trick-or-treating at Halloween and scoring a full-size candy bar from a generous neighbor? It was like hitting the mother load or finding gold at the end of the rainbow. As you get older, it takes more than a Snickers to get excited, but we imagine that same feeling emanated from a group of researchers who were surprised with a free Telsa V100 GPU accelerator from NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang. For several years now NVIDIA has been making a push into deep learning and artificial intelligence. The company's latest effort involved gathering elite deep learning researchers... Read more...

Radeon RX Vega is nearly here, and to help get the festivities kicked off early, AMD is taking its graphics show on the road. There are three stops on the tour, the first of which occurred yesterday in Budapest, Hungary. Next, AMD will make a stop at PDXLAN in Portland, Oregon (July 21-23) and the Radeon RX Vega will make its official debut later this month at SIGGRAPH 2017 in Los Angeles (July 30). However, we’re here to talk about what happened at last night’s event in Budapest. For AMD enthusiasts that showed up to get their hands on Vega-based hardware, that were greeted with systems that were... Read more...
There was a time when laptop options were basically a choice between desktop-like performance in a heavy and bulky form-factor, an ultralight with integrated graphics, or something in the middle, around 5-lbs with a low-end GPU. NVIDIA sought to solve this choice compromise with its Max-Q Design initiative that was announced at Computex last month. Max-Q Design is a holistic approach to notebook graphics design that ensures a svelte exterior, light weight, quiet thermals and optimal performance.ASUS and NVIDIA joined forces to produce the 15.6-inch Republic of Gamers (ROG) Zephyrus GX501, the first...

It's not too often we get the feeling that some of the technology that we regularly use is reaching its upper-limit, but there comes a time when new ideas need to be pushed forth in order to continue advancements. Take hard drives, for example. It almost seemed impossible to create multi-terabyte drives until PMR (perpendicular magnetic recording) came into play. Today, SMR and helium are helping to take us even further. On the microprocessor front, the challenges can be just as intense. We wouldn't have 14nm and smaller processors if not for the advancement of transistors, but soon, those die... Read more...
As the most dominant platform for digital game distribution, Steam is a great indicator of what is trending among gamers. It also helps that Valve surveys the landscape each and every month and makes its data available to the public. In doing so, we can see that Steam gamers overwhelmingly chose NVIDIA hardware over AMD or Intel for graphics chores through the end of June 2017.By the end of June, NVIDIA accounted for a dominating 63.61 percent of graphics card usage by Steam gamers. That is more than AMD (20.5 percent) and Intel (15.54 percent) combined, and you can throw the catch-all "other"... Read more...
NVIDIA is flexing its GPU muscle in the artificial intelligence and deep learning market thanks to a partnership with Chinese search giant Baidu. You can think of Baidu as the Chinese equivalent to Google’s dominance of the U.S. search and internet advertising market. Thanks to the partnership, NVIDIA is hoping to spread its hardware in three key areas. First off, NVIDIA’s next generation Volta-based GPU architecture to provide a robust deep learning platform for the Baidu Cloud. Used in combination with the its PaddlePaddle deep learning framework, Baidu will make use of Tesla Volta V100 and Tesla... Read more...
All major Linux kernel releases carry a handful of special updates, but there are some that are still a lot more notable than others. Linux 4.12 is one of those kernels, with even Linus Torvalds stating that it's one of the "bigger releases historically". A big reason for that? Well, for starters, it include introductory AMD Radeon Vega support. This comes hot on the heels of AMD unleashing its Vega Frontier Edition to the world, and close to a month before the consumer variants launch at SIGGRAPH 2017 in Los Angeles. AMD's Vega architecture is now supported in Linux - to some extent It's important... Read more...
NVIDIA's Computex 2017 unveiling of the new GeForce GTX with Max-Q Design technology for laptops was presented with the usual charismatic polish and enthusiasm that the company's leather-clad CEO, Jen-Hsun Huang is well known for. Frankly, it seemed a little too good to be true. In one hand, Huang held a legacy 10-pound boat anchor of a gaming notebook, while in the other he held the new ASUS ROG Zephyrus, a sub-5 pound machine that's just 17.9mm thick. Extolling the virtues of the new ASUS notebook powered by a GeForce GTX 1080 with Max-Q Design technology, he pointed out that the new machine... Read more...
Ethereum mining is a big business these days, and the cryptocurrency is on the verge of besting Bitcoin in market cap. Given the fact that many enterprising consumers are using gaming graphics card to maximize their hash rate for Ethereum mining, some manufacturers are tweaking their existing hardware to cater to these miners. The latest is ASUS, which has announced its MINING Series graphics cards. ASUS has an AMD version, which is based on the RX 470 Polaris graphics architecture (MINING RX 470). It has a base clock of 926MHz and a boost clock of 1206MHz. 4GB of GDDR5 memory is included, and... Read more...
Despite cautionary push back from regulators and lawmakers, it is becoming increasingly clear that self-driving cars are the future. Development in the area has been proceeding at a breakneck pace. Even so, one has to wonder when exactly autonomous vehicles will become a reality, versus just a prototype. It could be sooner than you think thanks to a new partnership between Volvo, Autoliv, and NVIDIA. The two automakers have teamed up with NVIDIA to accelerate the advancement of self-driving car technology. As part of that alliance, they have set an ambitious goal of having production vehicles built... Read more...
Lenovo is on a mission to change the way you think about workstations. Just as we have seen in other PC categories, the trend is towards increasingly smaller machines. When it comes to workstations with Independent Software Vendor (ISV) certification, nothing out there takes up less space than Lenovo's newly minted ThinkStation P320 Tiny, which it built around a one liter form factor.The new ThinkStation P320 Tiny ties into Lenovo's PC as a Service (PCaaS) offering, which consists of a fully managed, fixed monthly cost subscription model combining hardware and services into a single solution. There... Read more...
With the Chinese dominating the charts when it comes to the world’s most powerful supercomputers, the United States is looking to leverage its homegrown talent to usher in next-generation exascale computing. The Department of Energy (DOE) Exascale Computing Project (ECP) is funding six of the country’s top chip firms in order to ensure U.S. leadership in the field. Those companies include AMD, Intel, NVIDIA, Hewlett-Packard Enterprise, IBM and Cray. The six companies will have access to $258 million in funds that will be dispersed over a three-year-period. According to DOE, the funds will be used... Read more...
