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...

ASUS' ZenBook Pro 15 UX580 laptop has debuted and it is packing what it calls the ScreenPad. This feature takes the spot that would normally be reserved for a standard touchpad and turns it into a secondary screen that can display its own data. The ScreenPad is a 5.5-inch Full HD IPS display with custom controls for apps like Office and YouTube. While it can act as a secondary screen for control of some programs, it still retains full support for Microsoft Precision Touchpad and gestures supporting up to four fingers. A configurable toolbar at the top of the ScreenPad can be dragged down to... Read more...
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 been rather tight-lipped when it comes to revealing details about its next-generation graphic cards. The current generation GeForce GTX 10 Series, which is based on Pascal architecture, is two years old at this point and ready for a replacement.  Although rumors surrounding the official launch of the [alleged] GeForce GTX 11 Series have been all over the place, we're finally getting a better idea of the timing thanks to a schedule breakdown for the upcoming Hot Chips symposium, which will be held at the Flint Center for the Performing Arts in Cupertino, California....

Forget about running two graphics cards in SLI, imagine having 16 GPUs working in tandem to crunch through intensive workloads. That would be pretty awesome, right? It's also attainable, at least to certain audiences. NVIDIA today unveiled its HGX-2, a cloud server platform outfitted with 16 Tesla V100 Tensor Core GPUs working as a single, giant GPU to deliver a staggering two petaflops of performance geared towards artificial intelligence. Yes folks, this thing could run Crysis, if that's what it was designed for. It's not, of course, nor is it for playing games in general. NVIDIA is pitching... Read more...
Jon Peddie Research (JPR) has published its latest report that looks at the overall GPU industry. The latest report shows that the GPU market increased year-to-year by a scant 3.4% while GPU shipments have declined compared to last quarter to the tune of 10%. That decline may show that the cryptocurrency mining boom is waning, which is good news for gamers. Despite GPU shipments declining on the quarter, JPR says that the crypto market is still having a significant influence on the PC graphics market overall. Compared to the same quarter of last year, JPR’s data shows that the overall... 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...
