While companies left and right have been jumping on the virtual reality bandwagon that was created in large part by the Oculus Rift, one firm has been curiously absent—Apple. That changed yesterday when Apple announced at its annual developer conference (WWDC) an external graphics enclosure that will enable developers to develop and test graphically demanding apps, including VR content. The "External Graphics Development Kit," as it is called, can attach to any Mac with Thunderbolt 3 connectivity. Support for the enclosure is added through macOS High Sierra, the latest version of Apple's operating... Read more...
NVIDIA CEO Jen Hsun Huang just delivered a keynote speech at Computex Taipei, during which he unveiled some new mobile technology designed to optimize game performance, in smaller notebook form factors than have been previously possible. NVIDIA calls the technology Max-Q Design, and it enables NVIDIA’s notebook partners to cram high-performance GPUs like the GeForce GTX 1080 into notebooks that are a fraction of the size of previous-gen offerings. Jen Hsun brought out a couple of system to illustrate the differences between older gaming notebooks and next-gen notebooks featuring Max-Q design.... Read more...
Could Google’s Android O possibly go modular? Google’s own Romain Guy, Android Graphics Team Manager just revealed that his team has been working on making it so that device graphics drivers can be updated through the Play Store.

When is a confirmation not really a confirmation? The answer: when it originates from a rumor site rather than a company official. In case anyone needed another lessen in this, Intel has broke its silence and is flat out denying rumors that it inked a licensing deal with AMD for its graphics technology.

Soon after NVIDIA's Founder’s Edition GeForce GTX 1080 Ti hit the scene, board partners readied custom cards, like the EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti SC2 GAMING with iCX technology we’ll be showing you here.

It incorporates a plethora of additional sensors onto the card, along with a protection... Read more...
In preparation for the impending launch of AMD's next-generation Vega GPU architecture, which will eventually reside at the top of the company's graphics product stack, AMD is refreshing its mainstream graphics card line-up with some more-powerful Polaris-based offerings.

Their clocks, shader counts, and memory configurations have been tweaked, but they’re still based on... 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.
