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...
Internet sleuths have stumbled upon a set of pictures posted to a Facebook account belonging to an intern at NVIDIA and in the process may have discovered the first look at a next-generation Titan graphics card. The speculation is that the Titan graphics card shown in the pictures could be based on NVIDIA's Volta GPU architecture, which to date has only manifested on the company's Tesla V100 accelerator.At first glance, the card appears to be an existing Titan variant, though a closer examination reveals some key differences that hint of a next-generation part. For one, the style of the shroud... Read more...
A couple of weeks ago, we reported on a rumor of forthcoming GT 1030 graphics cards from NVIDIA, and this week, their existence has been confirmed. Its launch creates a new battle: Radeon RX 550 vs. GeForce GT 1030, although based on the specs alone, it looks like the RX 500 is going to come ahead (but its price will scale). The rumor leading up to the launch of the GT 1030 showed that the card could come equipped with either 384 or 512 CUDA cores, but based on the models available right now, it appears that the variant with 384 CUDA cores is going to be more common. At this point, we can't find... Read more...
Toyota is tapping NVIDIA to deliver the necessary artificial intelligence hardware that will power the automaker's autonomous driving systems. In doing so, Toyota joins a growing and impressive list of automotive partners that have teamed up with NVIDIA to push the autonomous vehicle category forward, a category that Toyota has spent more than two decades researching and developing. The Japanese automaker will use NVIDIA's Drive PX computer platform to power advanced autonomous driving systems that will be introduced in future vehicles. It is a joint collaboration in which engineering teams from... Read more...
If you want an early look at what to expect with NVIDIA’s next generation of high performance GeForce graphics processors, code-named Volta, today at GTC 2017 the company's CEO Jen-Hsun Huang just offered the first public unveiling of a product based on the next generation GPU architecture. NVIDIA just announced its new Tesla V100 accelerator that's designed for AI, machine learning, and HPC (High Performance Computing) applications. It's powered by Volta and it's looking like a mighty beast. At the heart of the Tesla V100 is NVIDIA's Volta GV100 GPU, which features a staggering... Read more...
NVIDIA's push into deep learning and artificial intelligence markets is is paying off in a big way. As a result of its ongoing investments into data center GPUs, the company was able to rake in $1.94 billion in revenue during the first quarter of 2017, an increase of 48 percent from $1.3 billion in same quarter a year ago. After paying the bills, NVIDIA was left with a profit of $507 million, up a whopping 144 percent from last year. "The AI revolution is moving fast and continuing to accelerate," said Jensen Huang, founder and chief executive officer of NVIDIA. "NVIDIA's GPU deep learning platform... Read more...
We are starting to sense a recurring theme from NVIDIA at the annual GPU Technology Conference (GTC). Last year at GTC NVIDIA unveiled its DGX-1, the world's first deep learning supercomputer. Featuring Tesla P100 GPUs based on its Pascal architecture, the DGX-1 made clear NVIDIA's commitment to deep learning and artificial intelligence. Building on top of that, NVIDIA announced at this year's GTC plans to train 100,000 developers through its Deep Learning Institute in 2017. That is a tenfold increase over the number of developers it trained last year. The reason NVIDIA is making such a big commitment... Read more...
The Lenovo IdeaCentre Y710 Cube is a small form factor (SFF) PC aimed at hardcore gamers on the go. The toolbox-size computer packs solid desktop hardware, including an Intel Core i7-6700 processor and an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 GPU, giving it the horsepower necessary to handle most modern games. And, like a toolbox, the Y710 Cube has a handle so you can grab it and go. Compact PCs have become increasingly more popular with gamers who want the power of a desktop system, but don’t want to lug a large PC when the need arises. They’re also popular at LAN events, for the same reasons. Gaming... Read more...
Custom variants of NVIDIA's mighty GeForce GTX 1080 Ti are finally available -- more so than the initial run of the stock clocked Founders Editions. As always, however, fortune favors the prudent buyer or simply those more recently flush with cash. In this custom 1080 Ti offering, MSI marries old form with new function. The MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Gaming X 11G has just emerged from our gauntlet of a dozen benches with style and grace, but we have to admit, she looks darn familiar. While other company's are gambling with fancy new fan configurations, RGB lighting and complicated cooling systems,... Read more...
In the high stakes game of semiconductors, technologies related to processor nodes are closely guarded secrets as companies try to trump one another with die shrinks and other advances in silicon research and development. As you might imagine, espionage can be a problem. Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) believes it was an issue with a former employee who it accuses of stealing 28nm trade secrets.TSMC believes an ex-employee identified only as Hsu stole information about the company's 28nm process technology when he was being head hunted for employment at Shanghai Hueli Microelectronics...

Hot on the heels of NVIDIA's release of the super-powerful GeForce GTX 1080 Ti (read our review!) comes another release that's on the complete opposite end of the performance spectrum. The new GeForce GT 1030 is for those that need a GPU, but can't stomach an integrated solution. At face value, the card actually seems like more of a "me-to" response to AMD's just-released Radeon RX 550. Both cards feature similar specs, such as 2 or 4GB of VRAM, 32 TMUs, 16 ROPs, and a price tag of about $79. Where AMD might gain an edge is with its wider memory bus of 128-bit (vs. 64-bit), and the fact that... Read more...
There’s no doubt that the NVIDIA SHIELD TV is an incredibly powerful media platform that not only allows for immersive gaming, but also supports popular 4K streaming services. Powered by a Tegra X1 processor (which also powers the incredibly popular Nintendo Switch), the SHIELD TV does battle with devices like the Apple TV, Fire TV and various Roku models. Today, NVIDIA is expanding the streaming capabilities of the SHIELD TV by adding 4K streaming support for Google Play Movies and TV. The SHIELD TV already had 4K streaming support for services like YouTube, Netflix and Amazon Video (among others),... Read more...
NVIDIA shook up the top of the graphics card market a couple of weeks back with the release of the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti. In its stock, Founder’s Edition form, the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti proved to be the fastest consumer-class graphics card available, but that didn’t stop NVIDIA’s board partners from quickly announcing custom versions packing even more horsepower. Case in point: The beastly Gigabyte Aorus GeForce GTX 1080 Ti 11GB we will be showing you here. The Gigabyte Aorus GeForce GTX 1080 Ti 11GB is the first, fully-custom, factory-overclocked (and ready to rock) GTX 1080 Ti to hit the lab, and... Read more...
The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti’s reign at the top of consumer graphics food chain was short-lived. The $700 GTX 1080 Ti has now been supplanted by the $1,200 Titan Xp, a full-fat GP102 core that demolishes benchmarks first and asks questions later. In case you missed it the first two times that we covered the Titan Xp, here’s the general breakdown of how the new ballbuster stacks up specs wise: 12GB GDDR5X memory operating at 11.4 GbpsMaximum memory bandwidth of 548Gbps3,840 CUDA cores running at a clock speed of 1.6GHz12 TFLOPs of compute powerAvailable direct from NVIDIA with an MSRP of $1,200...
