A few days back, a rumor was making the rounds that NVIDIA would be launching some new graphics cards at either the Games Developers Conference (GDC) or its own Graphics Technology Conference (GTC). Lots of gamers and enthusiasts out there were very excited at that prospect, as GPU shortages are making it difficult and very expensive to buy a new graphics card right now. Unfortunately, a new rumor is making the rounds that throws cold water on the rumor from a few days back. The new rumor claims that multiple sources have confirmed that the most gamers can expect from NVIDIA at GTC or GDC is an announcement and perhaps some sort of teaser of the new cards.

NVIDIA has always been the master of the tech demo.  And though they've previously shown Epic's Unreal Engine 4 in action on even mobile platforms like their forthcoming Tegra K1 mobile SoC, there's nothing like a new flagship graphics card to serve as a vehicle to demonstrate the latest in game engine advancements.  It's showcases like these that demonstrate the progress being made toward photo-realism and real-time physics in live action graphics and game play. Toward the end of his keynote speech on Monday, NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang shifted the focus of his presentation from graphics horsepower to what you could actually achieve with all that graphics muscle.  Powered by NVIDIA's...

Nvidia's GPU Technology Conference (GTC) kicked off this afternoon with company CEO Jen-Hsun Huang delivering the signature keynote. Nvidia typically uses the keynote to announce new projects, technologies, and initiatives, or to demonstrate new architectures, but today's event was something of a let-down. The event started off positively enough with a discussion of the GTX 690 and some performance highlights from the GK104 (Kepler's) debut. Jen-Hsun followed with a discussion of how Kepler moves the bar forward compared to Fermi, and is capable of handling scientific workloads that dwarf those of its predecessor. He also discussed a pair of new technologies -- HyperQ and Dynamic Parallism. Both... Read more...

There's been a rumor buzzing around, in the wake of NVIDIA's GPU Technical Conference last week, that the company intends to shut down its chipset division. After a bit of sleuthing, Hot Hardware has confirmed that this is not the case. NVIDIA fully intends to continue designing its own core logic, but the scope and purpose of its chipsets will be different going forward than in years past. NVIDIA does not intend to continue developing chipsets for current or future processors based on Nehalem, despite earlier assurances that the company would do so. Company CEO Jen-Hsun Huang was ready to box Intel on the topic as recently as last February, but OEM interest in NVIDIA-built solutions is rumored... Read more...
