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,...

NVIDIA stepped up today and offered gamers a sneak peak at the coolness that the developers behind Player Unknown's Battlegrounds are working on for the game's next map. We already knew that the new map would be desert-based, but if you expected a middle eastern-style desert, you will be disappointed. The new desert map looks like a moderate-sized desert town from the 70s in the US. You can see the five screenshots here and they all look rather cool. One of them shows a town with skyscrapers in various stages of construction. There are burned and rusted out cars everywhere in the streets and... Read more...
The Top500 list of supercomputers globally was published again this month, and one of the most interesting tidbits is that every single one of them runs Linux. This list comes out every six months and shows the top supercomputers in the world along with the countries with the most supercomputers. This fiftieth edition shows that there are some changes afoot in global supercomputing power. China has traditionally held the top spot for the most powerful supercomputer in the world, and it continues to hold that spot on the most current list. However, the U.S. has traditionally had the most supercomputers... Read more...
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...
Late last week, NVIDIA released a rather cryptic teaser trailer for an upcoming enthusiast graphics card. All that we could make out from the video were a dueling theme with red versus green (which we assumed to be AMD versus NVIDIA) and the name TITAN X Collector's Edition, which was emblazoned on the card. Today, NVIDIA officially announced the TITAN Xp Collector's Edition, which is available in two Star Wars-themed variants to let you embrace the light/dark side. In the red corner, we have the Galactic Empire, which features a finish that NVIDIA describes as "simple, clean lines, emulating the... Read more...
If you thought that the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti would be the last graphics card release from NVIDIA for 2017, then you might have been mistaken. Out of the blue, NVIDIA just posted a video teaser to YouTube that hints at an upcoming addition to its high-end enthusiast GPU family. You'll need a quick eye, or use YouTube's slow-motion controls, to see what NVIDIA is teasing. In this case, if you focus on the 0:11 mark on the video, you'll see that NVIDIA is releasing a TITAN X Collector's Edition. And given the fury of colors that is swirling around the card, you can see that it is light up with RGB... 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...

Imagine playing a game like Skyrim or a sports title where the characters you encounter look like real people or creatures, and not rendered graphics. If implemented correctly, it could add a new level of immersion to gaming. It may not be far off, either. NVIDIA released a paper over the weekend detailing a new training methodology for generating unique and realistic looking faces using a generative adversarial network (GAN).Everyone of these faces are machine-rendered... The result is the ability to render photorealistic faces of "unprecedented quality." How NVIDIA achieves this is by using an... Read more...
In just a few more days, NVIDIA's recently announced GeForce GTX 1070 Ti will release to retail, and so will embargoes on reviews, which will finally give consumers a chance to digest the new card's performance in comparison to other GeForce 10-series cards. NVIDIA's hardware partners are also ready with benchmarks to share. ASUS, for example, put together a couple of slides that highlight its Strix GeForce GTX 1070 Ti card's performance in OC mode. There are a couple of things to digest here. We will get to the numbers in a moment, but first let's talk about overclocking. It was rumored prior... Read more...
When it comes to artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning, NVIDIA is heavily invested on the hardware side of things with products like its Tesla GPU accelerators and the DGX Station. Those AI efforts are also fully on display with the DRIVE PX platform that is powering today's semi-autonomous vehicles. However, NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang believes that his company's hardware efforts are advancing fast enough, and that automotive partners will be capable of delivering fully autonomous vehicles on the road within four years. That is, however, if governmental regulations can keep up with the... Read more...
We can finally stop talking about the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti as a speculative release based on leaks and rumors. Following several weeks of bread crumbs teasing the card's launch, NVIDIA this morning made the new card official, and is even accepting pre-orders for it on the company's website. The only real disappoint is the lack of surprise—the specs line up with the most recent leaks. That's okay because the real question is how it performs, so there is still some anticipation left and room to speculate. Specifically, it will be interesting to see how the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti fares against AMD's Radeon... Read more...
There are plenty of mice and keyboards on the market today that aim at gamers with specific tastes when it comes to their favorite games. There are mice specifically for the fast actions that FPS gamers prefer and then there are mice for the multiplayer online battle arena or MOBA gaming. So, it makes sense that ASUS would want to offer a pair of notebook computers with each version tailored to gamers who prefer specific types of games. The first of the notebooks is the ROG Strix Hero Edition and it is aimed directly at the MOBA gamers out there with an 15.6-inch IPS display complete with sRGB... Read more...
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 will soon be upon us, and as we approach its late October launch, more details about the card continue to leak. This time around, we have a full retail box shot of a custom GeForce GTX 1070 Ti card from KFA2. If you're not familiar with KFA2, it's a hardware brand that is popular in Europe and is most closely associated with GALAX. There is no official confirmation of the specs for the card other than the fact that it includes 8GB of GDDR5 memory and that is uses 6+8-pin power connectors. Looking at the card itself, we see a dual-fan arrangement that should offer... Read more...
