If you're a frequent reader of HotHardware, then you're well aware that we've been quite impressed with the NVIDIA SHIELD TV. Not only is the pint-sized device a competent Android gaming console, but it also serves as an Android TV hub, a media streamer (for services like Netflix and Hulu), and can even function as a Plex Media Server. Finally, it can serve all this gaming and video content with the help of Google Assistant to search and provide key information all via voice command. Today, NVIDIA SHIELD TV is also gaining the ability to be the focal point for your smart home efforts now,... Read more...
The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Ti is pretty much a foregone conclusion at this point. Thanks to numerous specs and benchmarks leaks, along with a premature Facebook post from Gigabyte, we know that NVIDIA is cooking up the graphics card for a debut sometime around Halloween. Today, we have some more benchmarks to add to our leak pile, and they come from the popular 3DMark benchmark suite. In this case, there are new benchmarks numbers from the Fire Strike Extreme and Time Spy tests. In Fire Strike Extreme, the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti managed to put up a graphics score of 9449 points. This compares to... Read more...
Today, Intel announced something that it hopes will help in the fight against NVIDIA in the AI market. Intel's new processor is called the Nervana Neural Network Processor, and previously went by the codename "Lake Crest." Intel says that it has been working to make the Nervana processor for three years and it is now ready to reveal some details on the processor. Nervana is a purpose-built architecture for deep learning and the primary goal for the hardware team was to provide flexibility needed for deep learning primitives and to make the core hardware as efficient as possible. Intel... Read more...
There have been lots of rumors surrounding NVIDIA's still-unannounced GeForce GTX 1070 Ti, most of which point to a launch happening later this month. Missing from all the chatter, however, has been any benchmarks. Well, that changes today. The first benchmarks (that we are aware of) of the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti have leaked out from the Ashes of Singularity: Escalation database. This is a benchmark we have run ourselves a few times, though on a different settings preset than what's been leaked out. In this case, the preset level was configured to "Extreme," and run at a 2560x1440 (1440p) resolution.... Read more...
There have been multiple reports of NVIDIA readying a GeForce GTX 1070 Ti graphics card for a launch sometime later this month. While we generally take leaked info with a healthy dose of salt, what we have seen and heard leads us to believe this is real news. We are anxious to see what the final spec looks like, though in the meantime, a Chinese-language website has posted what it claims are all the vitals.Assuming the information is accurate, the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti will wield a GP104 GPU, though it will be a different version than other cards based on the same chip. This particular variant, the... Read more...
When it comes to gaming rigs, we love it when OEMs (and enthusiasts who build their machines) throw everything but the kitchen sink at their systems. Excess is best when it comes to NVIDIA, which commissioned high-end PC case maker Parvum to some up with the Ultimate GeForce PC. The main requirement was to design a custom case that would showcase the kickass hardware lurking inside -- specifically the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti. The case is custom-milled from aluminum and features an embedded water cooling system constructed of clear acrylic, which has to be seen to be believed. Inside the case, you'll... Read more...
Every Star Trek fan in the world has been waiting for a real-life Holodeck to emerge. NVIDIA has gone and built one and is now inviting designers and developers to test it out. Well, sort of. NVIDIA unveiled an intelligent virtual reality platform that is capable of delivering photorealistic visuals and real-world physics, all simulated in a VR environment. Called Holodec, NVIDIA is essentially offering developers the necessary tools to build and immerse themselves into a virtual design lab. "NVIDIA Holodeck empowers designers to bring peers, partners and customers along the design journey to explore... Read more...
NVIDIA has found plenty of partners for its DRIVE PX 2 autonomous driving platform, including the likes of Toyota and Volvo. When it was first announced back at CES 2016, NVIDIA billed Drive PX 2 as the "world's first in-car artificial intelligence supercomputer". Not one to rest on its laurels, the GPU and AI company pulled the wraps off the Drive PX 2 Pegasus platform at GTC Europe. According to NVIDIA, DRIVE PX Pegasus is capable of executing over 320 million operations per second, outpacing its predecessor by 10x. Powering this new AI systems are two next generation NVIDIA Xavier SoCs that... Read more...
It has been hard for months now for PC enthusiasts and gamers to find the video cards they want, because miniers have been buying them up to mine whatever their preferred cryptocurrency might be. Back in late September, we talked about prices for GeForce GTX 10 Series video cards possibly climbing due to a DRAM shortage and Ethereum miners. Now we have some new dedicated cards for miners coming to market from Inno3D that won't help the DRAM shortage, but might at least lure miners away from the cards gamers are searching for. These are P106 mining cards, which are essentially stripped down NVIDIA... Read more...
All signs are pointing to NVIDIA releasing a GeForce GTX 1070 Ti in less than a month. Just over a week ago, Gigabyte's Facebook page seemingly confirmed the existence of the graphics card, confirming earlier rumors. Now, a fresh report is suggesting that the card will launch just in time for Halloween. According to NordicHardware, the GTX 1070 will launch on October 26th, with Halloween arriving just a few days later on October 31st. The publication also indicates that NVIDIA's board partners are far along in testing their own designs based around the chip, and will be ready to unleash a wave... Read more...
NVIDIA is launching a new update today for the SHIELD TV, which it says is the most important update in the last two years the device has been available. There are several important new capabilities added to SHIELD TV in this update with perhaps the biggest being Google Assistant support. Google Assistant will be able to take advantage of your big screen TV and surround sound speakers for the best audio possible.The update also includes hands-free access to Assistant for TV, which is a first, and allows you to interact with your TV without having to pick up the controller. Another new feature for... Read more...
Those big touchscreen displays inside Tesla's fleet of automobiles might be getting a brain transplant. At present, hardware from NVIDIA powers the information and entertainment experiences displayed on the large displays, but for how long remains to be seen—it is said that Tesla is planning a switch to Intel hardware on its Model 3 and new versions of its other electric vehicles.If true, this would be another blow inflicted to NVIDIA from Tesla. It was reported last week that Tesla had begun working with Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) to develop custom artificial intelligence chips to replace NVIDIA's... Read more...
Last year we offered a detailed exploration of NVIDIA’s GeForce Experience tool set for capturing screenshots and videos. Since then, a few bells and whistles have been tacked on to further enhance the experience. The most recent of these is ShadowPlay Highlights, a slick feature that intelligently identifies your finest moments (or epic failures) in games and records them for your viewing and social sharing pleasure. The Highlights feature requires developer support for implementation and therefore is currently only working in select titles. The latest, great addition to the supported titles list... Read more...
Gigabyte has gone and beefed up the graphics processor in its thin and relatively light Aero 15 gaming laptop. The new Aero 15 X model swaps out the GeForce GTX 1060 with 6GB of GDDR5 memory found in the non-X SKU to a more powerful GeForce GTX 1070 with 8GB of GDDR5 memory. Beyond being a burlier GPU, the new model laptop also boasts NVIDIA's Max-Q technology.Max-Q is the secret sauce to cooking up thinner and lighter laptops for gaming, such as the excellent ASUS ROG Zephyrus GX501 that we reviewed this past summer. The chips that are inserted into Max-Q laptops are selectively binned based on... Read more...
