Buying a shiny new car is an easy way to get the latest in-car technologies, but it’s not the most economical. I've had my fair share of new car purchases in the last decade – a 2008 Chevy HHR SS, 2011 Volkswagen Routan SE, 2014 Mazda 5 Sport and a 2015 Nissan Leaf – and driven hundreds of press cars featuring the latest technologies and infotainment systems. Despite new cars being technically superior on paper, the average age of vehicles on the road in 2016 was 11.6 years old, according to IHS Markit. We’ve seen substantial upgrades to the car stereo and infotainment systems in the last decade,... 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...
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...
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....

The leaks surrounding Nintendo's upcoming NX console continue to flow. Last week, a website claimed to have received exclusive information about Nintendo's console, and depending on your perspective, it will either sound great or lackluster, if you weren't big on the Wii or Wii U. First and foremost, the biggest thing that would set the NX apart, if rumors are true, is that it'd be primarily a portable console - not portable like the PS Vita, but portable enough to pick up and walk around a house with. A TV wouldn't be removed from the equation entirely though; you'd be able to dock this portable... Read more...
It's been rumored for some time that NVIDIA had lost interest in the mobile phone business, and that's something company co-founder and CEO Jen-Hsun Huang confirmed during his company's presentation at Computex. None of this is much of a surprise, as the company's Tegra SoC hasn't found itself inside of a commercially successful smartphone, but this confirmation is a bit sobering nonetheless. NVIDIA has what it takes to create an incredible smartphone SoC, and has proven that it can even build great devices surrounding those SoCs. But at the end of the day, the ROI for that particular venture... Read more...
NVIDIA hit it out of the park with its fourth quarter earnings, that the company reported this afternoon. The silicon valley graphics and system-on-a-chip titan outpaced last year’s already strong performance with revenue of $1.4 billion (a 12 percent increase from the same quarter a year ago). Net income came in at $297 million, or 35 cents per share. NVDA's full fiscal year 2016 was reported at $5.01 billion, which was a 7 percent increase over fiscal 2015. The company’s quarterly performance far outpaced analysts’ expectations and NVIDIA was rewarded with a 7 percent share boost in after hours... Read more...
NVIDIA's SHIELD Android TV device has been available for a couple of weeks now, but only in the regular 16GB version. Now, NVIDIA has announced that it's begun shipping the "Pro" model, which in addition to including a 500GB hard drive, bundles in a free copy of Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. It might be worth noting that this game is an Android native title, so no streaming will be required. If that bundle somehow doesn't entice you, NVIDIA has even more up its sleeves. Anyone who purchases either of the SHIELD models will receive $30 credit for the Google Play store as well as a free three-month... Read more...
Over the past few months, we’ve covered a number of details related to today’s launch of the NVIDIA SHIELD Android TV device. It was back in March during GDC that we were first able to show you the Tegra X1 powered SHIELD Android TV (then refered to as the SHIELD Console). And it was earlier in the year at CES when NVIDIA unveiled the Tegra X1 SoC itself, along with a number of X1-based automotive products. To recap a bit, the Tegra X1 features a Maxwell-derived GPU and eight CPU cores; four ARM A57 cores and four A53s. The A57 cores are 64-bit, out-of-order designs with multi-issue pipelines,...

Taking good advantage of the ongoing Google I/O conference, NVIDIA has just released what's undoubtedly one of the world's fastest Android devices: SHIELD. This peculiarly-named device might take over the name of the original portable SHIELD hand-held, but it's a much different device. SHIELD is a set-top device that NVIDIA aims to be better than all of the others. And we'd hope so, because the $199 price tag for the regular model will demand that this is a premium product, at least compared to simple media streamers. Yes, "regular model", because there's also a Pro model, which tacks on an extra... Read more...
Since its launch in the 90s, NVIDIA's core business has revolved around graphics units, either for gaming or professional use. In the past five years, the company has made a small dent in the mobile market, with its Tegra series of SoCs having been well-received overall. Now, the company desperately wants to see success in another hot market: automobiles. In recent years, NVIDIA's Tegra processor has powered the infotainment systems in select cars, such as Audi's R8 and Tesla's Model S, and while the company has no intention of slowing its efforts there down, it wants to expand into autonomous...

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,...
