Although NVIDIA officially unveiled its Volta-based GV100 GPU over seven months ago, and an unwitting intern may have leaked pictures of the card we’re going to show you here today shortly thereafter, the NVIDIA TITAN V featuring the GV100 GPU began shipping just this past week. The NVIDIA TITAN V targets a very specific audience and is designed for professional and academic deep learning applications, which partly explains its lofty $3,000 price tag. Unlike NVIDIA's previous-gen consumer flagship, the TITAN Xp, the TITAN V is clearly not designed for gamers. But since it features NVIDIA’s... Read more...
Make no bones about it, the new TITAN V is a monster graphics card. We know this from the spec sheet alone—the NVIDIA TITAN V is rocking a Volta GPU underneath the hood, along with a whole bunch of redesigned Tensor cores for deep learning workloads. Looking beyond the spec sheet, a user on Reddit has assembled a collection of links to some early, unofficial benchmarks of the TITAN V, and boy-oh-boy is it fast. We say "unofficial" because there is always the chance these benchmarks are fake. We do not know how many of these cards NVIDIA might have shipped out to reviewers, but however... Read more...
NVIDIA caused a great disturbance in the Force recently, as if millions of gamers suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced. We fear something terrible has happened, and they might not be able to get their hands on the glorious Star Wars TITAN Xp Collector’s Edition cards that were announced a few days ago, but arrive today, alongside EA’s Star Wars Battlefront II.Fear not young Padawan. If you can’t gaze upon a Star Wars TITAN Xp Collector’s Edition with your own eyes, we will do our best to convey what it’s like to game on one of these limited edition beasts and witness its customized,...

It's definitely been in interesting week in the world of tech, and during that time, NVIDA issued another blockbuster earnings report. NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang recently talked about his company's quarterly earnings and hit many other topics during an new interview. During the chat, Huang was naturally asked about the biggest news to happen in the GPU market in recent memory: Intel's adoption of AMD graphics for its Kaby Lake-G family of processors.  When asked if this new AMD-Intel partnership would cause NVIDIA to alter its future GPU plans, Huang fired back, "Not really. I think it... Read more...
PC hardware aficionados are no doubt aware of the new NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Ti we will be showing you here today. Prior to last week’s official announcement by NVIDIA, information about the card had been leaking for weeks – see for yourself. If you haven’t been keeping up on the scene, the GTX 1070 Ti is NVIDIA’s latest Pascal-powered graphics card for enthusiast gamers, that’s meant to slot in between the GeForce GTX 1070 and GTX 1080, and take down the recently released AMD Radeon RX Vega 56.For the purposes of this article, we got our hands on a pair of GeForce GTX 1070 Ti cards, a Founder’s...

As long as we have been able to cram multiple video cards into our computers, the branding from NVIDIA and AMD had been the same. NVIDIA calls its multi-GPU tech SLI and AMD has coined theirs CrossFire. With the release of the new drivers to allow gamers to put multiple Radeon RX Vega graphics cards inside gaming PCs, that CrossFire branding has been shelved. When AMD announced the new drivers there was no CrossFire mentioned at all, and so PC World asked why. An AMD rep said, "CrossFire isn’t mentioned because it technically refers to DX11 applications. In DirectX 12, we reference multi-GPU... Read more...
Abnormally high GPU pricing has been an issue for a long time now, but things really hit a peak when AMD launched its Radeon RX Vega series last month. Immediately, the graphics cards were nearly impossible to find, and those that were in stock were found with seriously inflated prices - sometimes with a nearly $200 premium due to price gouging merchants playing the supply and demand game. Unfortunately, it also appears that consumers looking at picking up an NVIDIA graphics card are also now starting to feel the burn of a higher street price. While AMD cards are often sought out first... Read more...
Update, 9/15/2017: We've updated our Ethereum mining benchmark numbers in this article to include AMD's recently released Radeon RX Vega graphics cards. Head here for that updated data or journey on for the full guide. Cryptocurrency mining is a big buzz topic in technology these days. And why not? Utilizing your computer to digitally mine what seems like free money only begs the question, "where do I sign up?" Your machine will actually be "mining" or processing transactions for a decentralized currency, the hottest variant of which is called Ethereum.  Poised to overtake the industry... Read more...
Today is the day AMD's Radeon Technologies Group has been working towards for a long time. The official launch of the Radeon RX Vega is here, and it's now time for AMD RTG's moment in the spotlight. Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ:AMD) has been on a tear as of late; the desktop and server processor group executed successful launches of its Ryzen desktop processor, EPYC server platform, and finally the big bang last week with its Ryzen Threadripper enthusiast 12- and 16-core processors, which were met with high praise. Ryzen, EPYC and Threadripper are tough acts to follow, just ask Intel. So too... Read more...
AMD has officially lifted the veil on its new Radeon RX consumer graphics line-up, featuring the company's next-generation Vega GPU architecture. After months of architecture disclosures and rumors, we finally have real specifications and details on the actual Radeon RX Vega graphics card line-up, including pricing, and what AMD is doing to make the cards as attractive as possible for gamers.Initially, there will be four cards in the Radeon RX Vega line-up, the standard air-cooled Radeon RX Vega 64, a Radeon RX Vega 64 Limited Edition with stylized metal fan shroud, the liquid-cooled...

We are out at SIGGRAPH learning about AMD’s upcoming Radeon RX Vega GPUs and Ryzen Threadripper processors at the moment. We will have many more details to share with you tomorrow evening after AMD’s Capsaicin Event, but the company is allowing pictures of the Radeon RX Vega to be posted right away, so we thought we’d share them with you all. Raja Koduri With The Radeon RX Vega Liquid Cooled EditionWhat we have here are pictures of two Radeon RX Vega cards – the liquid and air cooled editions. Raja Koduri, Senior Vice President and Chief Architect of the Radeon Technologies Group, is holding... Read more...
Gamers and overclockers looking for a new NVIDIA-based graphics card have something new to lust over from EVGA. The new video card is the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti K|NGP|N edition. Sure, that name doesn't exactly roll off the tongue, but the performance is there in spades. The GTX 1080 Ti K|NGP|N edition currently holds multiple single video card world records in benchmarks with a 3DMark Time Spy record of 14,219 and a 3DMark Fire Strike Extreme world record of 19,361. The video card also grabbed world records in UNIGINE Superposition with a score of 8,642 and in 3DMark Fire Strike scoring 31,770.... Read more...
Things are looking better indeed for AMD, thanks to the success of its Ryzen processors and Radeon GPUs. This is great news for PC fans everywhere, since AMD is finally offering CPUs (like its Ryzen Threadripper) that enthusiasts and gamers are once excited about. Competition is a great thing and will spur growth in the entire industry. The company's earnings are in and AMD's Q2 actuals were stronger than expected, thanks to demand for its bread and butter products. AMD reported non-GAAP earnings of two cents per share with revenue of $1.22 billion. That figure represents growth of 19% on... Read more...
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...
