Some of the top researchers in artificial intelligence received a special surprise from NVIDIA at the Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition conference in Salt Lake City, Utah yesterday. NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang presented twenty randomly selected attendees with a limited edition Titan V CEO Edition graphics card, which isn't just unique because the box bears Jensen's signature, but also for the beefed up specs. Like the regular Titan V, the limited run CEO Edition is based on NVIDIA's Volta architecture. However, it comes with 32GB of HBM2 memory and 6MB of L2 cache, up from 12GB and 4.5MB, respectively,...

Almost everything we know about NVIDIA's next generation GeForce GPUs is based in rumors and speculation. That will change sometime this summer, and by August at the latest, as NVIDIA is scheduled to talk about its next-gen GPUs at the Hot Chips conference. In the meantime, the latest chatter is that NVIDIA's upcoming Turing GPUs will support real-time ray tracing at the hardware level, which could elevate gaming in a big way. For anyone who is not familiar with ray tracing, it's a method for rendering graphics by which images are created by tracing rays or paths of light as they bounce in and... Read more...
Everyone wants some of what TSMC is cooking with its new 7nm process that will be used for chips from multiple companies. TSMC's 7nm production lines will be used by NVIDIA, Qualcomm, Sony, and Apple. To meet the crushing demand for the parts, TSMC is reportedly accelerating its production schedule. Sources are claiming that many of TSMC's fabless customers are skipping the 10nm process tech more readily available and moving directly to 7nm chips. So far in addition to the companies previously mentioned HiSilicon, MediaTek, and Xilinx have all confirmed they will be joining in on the TSMC... Read more...
NVIDIA and IBM have helped the United States lay claim to the fastest supercomputer ever made. Called Summit, the remarkable machine sits at the US Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) where it is capable of crushing workloads via a staggering 200 petaflops of high-precision computation, making it eight times more powerful than Titan, previously the fastest supercomputer in the US. "Summit is fast, but what Summit means is even more remarkable," NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang said at Summit’s debut. "Summit is a magnificent scientific instrument that will attract the world’s...

The million dollar question on every gamer's mind is when the heck will NVIDIA finally launch its next-generation GPU, presumably called Turing. There have been plenty of rumors and speculation, most of which point to this summer. However, NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang may have thrown cold water on the chatter when he said at Computex that the next generation of GeForce will not arrive for a long while. If you listen closely, you can hear the collective groan of gamers who are anxious to see NVIDIA finally put its Pascal architecture in the rear view mirror as it hits the ground running with a new architecture....

It has been a long time since NVIDIA was singularly focused on graphics chips. These days the company has its tentacles in multiple different markets, with an especially big interest in artificial intelligence. As part of that, NVIDIA is rolling out Isaac, a new platform designed to power the next generation of autonomous machines, injecting AI capabilities into robots for various different tasks. What kinds of tasks? Everything from manufacturing and logistics, to agriculture, construction, and much more. NVIDIA officially launched the platform at this year's Computex convention, noting that Issac... Read more...
NVIDIA has gone and quietly introduced another Pascal-based graphics card to its entry-level lineup, the previously rumored GeForce GTX 1050 with 3GB of GDDR5 memory. As the third GeForce GTX 1050 card in NVIDIA's product stack, the new SKU is sandwiched between the other GeForce GTX 1050 with 2GB of GDDR5 memory, and the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti with 4GB of GDDR5 memory. It's not entirely clear how NVIDIA will market and sell this new card—there was speculation that it could end up as an exclusive option in China, where it would most likely be found in gaming cafes, or as a variant specifically...

NVIDIA is talking up some new AI techniques that well help robots to more efficiently work alongside humans. The research was led by NVIDIA researchers Stan Birchfield and Jonathan Tremblay. The duo was able to develop a deep learning-based system that is said to be the first of its kind that can teach a robot to complete a task simply by observing the actions of a human. NVIDIA says that the research is meant to enhance communications between humans and robots while furthering research that allows people to work alongside robots seamlessly. "For robots to perform useful tasks in real-world settings,... Read more...
We learned earlier this week that the time has finally come for new gaming monitors based on NVIDIA's G-SYNC HDR technology to be released to the public. NVIDIA explained that monitors would be available in late May or early June. Right on cue, Newegg is now taking preorders for the Acer Predator X27. As expected, the Predator X27 features a 27-inch display panel with a 4K (3840x2160) resolution. The display's refresh rate clocks in at 144Hz and gray-to-gray response times are rated at 4ms. The IPS panel supports 10-bit color depths, features a peak brightness rating of 1,000 nits... Read more...
It seems as though every few weeks we hear additional rumors about NVIDIA's next-generation GeForce GTX graphics card family. The latest report suggests that the first of these new gaming cards, the GeForce GTX 1180, will arrive in July.  This information comes courtesy of Tom's Hardware, which claims to have confirmed the launch date with industry sources that are privy to NVIDIA's plans. The July launch is strictly relegated to NVIDIA’s own GeForce GTX 1180 Founders Edition cards. Custom versions of the GeForce GTX 1180 will come from NVIDIA's third-party partners sometime...

We’ve been hearing about 4K G-SYNC HDR monitors with 144Hz panels ever since CES 2017. At the time, both ASUS and Acer announced monitors that adhered to NVIDIA’s announced specs. 2017 came to a close and CES 2018 came and went with no sign of these mythical G-SYNC HDR monitors. However, NVIDIA is now saying that the time has come to unleash the beast, so to speak. The first 27-inch 144Hz monitors supporting G-SYNC HDR will launch in by the end of this month, or early June at the latest. All of these monitors will of course feature a 4K resolution (3840x2160) with virtually zero... Read more...
HP unveiled a slew of new mainstream systems yesterday, including a pair of all-in-one desktop systems, the EliteOne 1000 for businesses and the Envy Curved AIO for consumers. We touched on these (and several other newly announced PCs) already, but have since received additional details on the Envy Curved AIO and felt like we should revisit it. With a large curved panel and powerful components, it's arguably the most interesting product in HP's refreshed lineup. The Envy Curved AIO will be offered in two different sizes, one with a 27-inch panel and the other with a 34-inch display, both obviously... Read more...
Most of the rumors surrounding NVIDIA's future graphics card plans are related to whatever it has in store as a successor to Pascal, whether that means porting Volta over to the gaming sector or rolling with Turing or Ampere. However, NVIDIA might not be finished with Pascal. The latest GPU rumor about team green is that NVIDIA is prepping a 3GB version of its entry-level GeForce GTX 1050 card for cost conscious gamers. If that comes to fruition, budget gamers would have three GeForce GTX 1050 models to choose from, including 2GB and 3GB variants of the GeForce GTX 1050, and the Ti model with 4GB... Read more...
Gigabyte today announced a couple of new 4U GPU servers for the datacenter, both packed with multiple NVIDIA Tesla GPUs to bring massive parallel computing capabilities to the sector. According to Gigabyte, its new G481-S80 and G481-HA0 offer some of the highest GPU density available in the 4U form factor—the former accommodates eight SXM2 form factor GPUs, such as NVIDIA's Volta-based Tesla V100 or Pascal-based Tesla P100, and the latter packs 10 GPUs. These new servers also feature NVIDIA's NVLink technology supporting bi-directional communication between GPUs, allowing for higher bandwidth... Read more...
