Of the over 28,000 attendees at NVIDIA’s GTC 2018 GPU Technology Conference, many converged on the San Jose Convention Center this week to learn about advancements in AI and Machine Learning that the company would bring to the table for developers, researchers and service providers in the field. Today, NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang took to the stage to unveil a number of GPU-powered innovations for Machine Learning, including a new AI super computer and an updated version of the company’s powerful Tesla V100 GPU that now sports a hefty 32 Gigabytes of on-board HBM2 memory. NVIDIA Tesla V100... Read more...
We were first introduced to NVIDIA's 12nm Volta GV100 GPU architecture back in early May 2017 when the Tesla V100 Accelerator debuted. NVIDIA later extended its GV100 GPU to the Titan V (you can read the HotHardware review here), which is aimed at professional and academic deep learning applications. Now, NVIDIA is ready to unleash the Quadro GV100, which brings Volta GPU architecture to the company's lineup of professional graphics cards. NVIDIA is really throwing down the hammer with the Quadro GV100, as the graphics card has 32GB of HBM2 onboard, which is scalable to a 64GB addressable frame... Read more...
Most of us have had a love-hate relationship with wireless networking. It’s a wonderful technology when all your devices remain connected and perform well in every room of your house, but that’s not always the case. When your devices intermittently drop off or can't find a strong enough signal strength for reliable web browsing, or even if you're suffering through endless video buffering, there isn’t much you can do in that moment, but accept you’re at the mercy of your wireless router. Networking companies sought to fix that with wireless network extenders, but most of... Read more...
For those who need the ultimate in compute power, but can't accommodate a computer that would fill an entire room, NVIDIA's DGX-1 'supercomputer' fits the bill. Unveiled earlier this year at NVIDIA's own GTC, the DGX-1 is a server unit that packs in 8 of the company's ultra-powerful Tesla V100s, delivering a peak 960 TFLOPS of half-precision performance. We're not sure how many of these monsters are out in the wild, but one anonymous Geekbench user had access to one long enough to run the test, and immediately broke world records. As you can see in the shot below, the DGX-1 running either OpenCL... Read more...
Soon after unveiling the Tesla V100 data center GPU based on its next-generation Volta architecture at GTC 2017, NVIDIA CEO Jen Hsun Huang announced an updated, Volta-infused DGX-1 server appliance for deep learning data center deployment, along with a totally new product, the NVIDIA DGX Station, that’s being dubbed a ‘Personal AI Supercomputer’.The new NVIDIA DGX-1 is similar to the previous generation offering based on Pascal, but is powered by eight Tesla V100s GPUs, linked together via next-gen NVIDIA NVLink interconnect technology that ups the bandwidth per GPU to 300GB/s. The rest of the... Read more...
A couple of weeks back, NVIDIA unveiled a family of new professional Quadro cards, based on the company’s Pascal GPU architecture. The latest additions to the Quadro line-up run the gamut in terms of features and capabilities, from the low-power, small form factor Quadro P400 to the gargantuan, ultra-powerful Quadro GP100. Smack dab in the middle of the line-up are a pair of mid-range offerings, the Quadro P4000 and Quadro P2000, which we’ll be featuring here.The Quadro P4000 and P2000 are both single-slot, capable solutions that target more mainstream professional-graphics market segments, very...

Updated: 2/10/2017 -  Since we initially launched this article, Netgear assisted with resolving a technical issue we were experiencing with 802.11ad connectivity and performance with the Nighthawk X10 router we had in for testing. As such, we have updated this review with both fresh 60GHz 802.11ad performance data, and we've upgraded our rating to HotHardware Recommended in the conclusion as well. We’ve reviewed all kinds of 802.11 routers here at Hothardware, including audacious tri-band routers that look like spaceships, and more pedestrian dual-band routers too. The recently released Netgear... Read more...
The same awesome architecture that powers NVIDIA's latest generation graphics cards can now be found throughout the maker's entire professional Quadro line for the desktop with top to bottom solutions. We're of course talking about Pascal, the game-changing architecture that made playing titles at a 4K resolution on a single graphics card possible. Pascal now powers half a dozen more Quadro cards that flesh out its existing lineup. Having access to Pascal on the engineering side will provide a boost in performance in several categories. VR, photo-realism, and deep learning technologies, all of... Read more...
Artificial intelligence is at the center of several evolving and next-generation products and services, everything from video games and smartphones (virtual digital assistants and messaging) to self-driving cars and web searchers. It has the attention of companies small and large, including NVIDIA and Microsoft, the two of which are partnering to push AI technologies more aggressively into the enterprise. What this essentially boils down to is pairing NVIDIA's DGX-1 supercomputer with Microsoft's Azure cloud platform. The idea is to "help companies join the AI revolution" and this partnership means...

Consumer WiFi router products are generally classified by three major performance characteristics: overall throughput or bandwidth, multi-client performance, and range. Although throughput and multi-client bandwidth has scaled-up nicely over the years, range perhaps hasn't improved quite as robustly and even the most powerful WiFi routers, like Netgear's own beastly Nighthawk X8, with its active antennas, can still leave dead spots in large home or office installations. That's where the recent crop of mesh router technologies, that startups like Eero and Google with Google WiFi, are making significant... Read more...
NVIDIA has just announced that its first-ever DGX-1 deep-learning server has found a home, and it couldn't be more appropriate. That new home is with OpenAI, the world's largest non-profit artificial intelligence research agency, which is based in San Francisco. If the OpenAI name sounds familiar but you can't quite place why, it's probably because we've talked about it a couple of times before. With the help of fellow industry legends, Tesla's Elon Musk helped launch OpenAI last year with a major goal: to progress AI with the mindset that it will benefit all humankind. The integration of...

NVIDIA today introduced a new graphics card option for its GRID virtual desktop platform. It's the Tesla M10 and it's intended to make it more affordable for businesses to deliver virtualized desktops to all of their employees through a subscription model that starts at just $2 per user, per month (when signing up with a 3-year plan). The pitch from NVIDIA is that business applications have grown beyond simple documents and spreadsheets where 2D acceleration was sufficient. Modern applications, including Outlook, Office 2016, web browsers, Adobe Photoshop, and even Windows 10 can all take advantage... Read more...
A few weeks back, during its GPU Technology Conference, NVIDIA announced a new Quadro-branded graphics card for the professional workstation market. That card is the Quadro M2000 we’ll be showing you here today. The Quadro M2000 is a low-power pro graphics solution featuring a GPU based on NVIDIA’s Maxwell architecture. In fact, it’s the very same GPU used on one of the more mainstream GeForce GTX-branded cards. However, with the Quadro M2000, additional features and capabilities are enabled through NVIDIA's Quadro software/driver suite and the card’s particular hardware configuration.The Quadro...

At last week’s GPU Technology Conference, NVIDIA’s CEO Jen-Hsun Huang unveiled a couple of key products and technologies that target the High-Performance Computing, or HPC, space, including the Tesla P100 data center accelerator and its companion DGX-1 deep-learning system, which is a powerful server that has up to eight Tesla P100 cards at its core. Today though, we have more information about the underlying architecture employed in the P100, otherwise known NVIDIA’s Pascal GPU architecture.Pascal is the follow-up to the Maxwell architecture, which is leveraged in NVIDIA’s current-generation...
