We've been hearing quite a bit about NVIDIA's upcoming "Super" refresh of its GeForce GTX Turing family of graphics cards. Over the past few weeks, we seen leaks concerning Zotac's upcoming GeForce GTX 1660 Super-based gaming card, and ASUS is already reportedly ready to unleash a number of new SKUs based on the GPU. Today, we're getting some clarification on the final specs for the GeForce GTX 1660 Super thanks to well-connected hardware sleuth momomo_us. momomo_us stumbled across a product listing on a Chinese-based e-commerce site that lists a Maxsun GeForce GTX 1660 Super graphics card. Judging by the images, this is a custom design complete with that looks like a relatively beefy heatsink... Read more...
It looks as though Amazon isn’t the only retailer spilling NVIDIA’s secrets for upcoming streaming devices. Amazon got the ball rolling with the SHIELD TV Pro earlier today, while Newegg has posted a product page for the all-new SHIELD TV.  This entry-level device is shaped like a small cylinder measuring 1.57 inches wide and 6.5 inches tall. Despite its tiny dimensions, it still manages to incorporate an HDMI port, GbE port, a microSD reader, and a proprietary power port.  The new SHIELD TV carries the same NVIDIA Tegra X1+ processor as the SHIELD TV Pro, but makes do with just 8GB of internal storage instead of 16GB. We’d imagine that this streamer will... Read more...
We've been hearing rumors about an updated NVIDIA SHIELD TV 4K media streamer coming to the market, and those reports have all been confirmed thanks to someone that had an itchy trigger finger over at Amazon. The online retail giant "accidentally" posted a listing for the upcoming SHIELD TV Pro complete with images of the revised device and its all-new remote. The SHIELD TV has long been the enthusiast's choice for 4K media streamers due to its Android TV compatibility, wide support for streaming services, Android gaming, and GeForce NOW support. The SHIELD TV Pro extends that leadership with a new Tegra X1+ processor. We don't have anything with regards to specs on the processors,... Read more...
ALDI is a European-based grocery store chain that is quickly expanding across the United States, and it is notable for also selling all types of random home goods, electronics, and even clothing. PC gamers can get their hands on the Medion Gaming Desktop PC from ALDI with one caveat being that it is only offered online. That means gamers can't toss it into their shopping cart along with their dinner at the physical store. Most notably, the video card is an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060, which has 6GB of VRAM and is ray tracing-enabled for playing games like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. The GeForce RTX 2060 video card alone is selling for around $330 right now. The other main hardware features... Read more...
NVIDIA has a game studio with the sole task of bringing ray tracing effects to old titles to spruce up their looks. Confirmation of plans to ray trace additional classic game comes from a job listing that the company posted looking for someone to join its NVIDIA Lightspeed Studios team. As for what the name of the game the person who lands the job in the listing will be working on, NVIDIA is mum. All the listing says of the game is that it is a title "you know and love, but we can't talk about it here." NVIDIA has shown off Quake II RTX, but the job listing was posted after that game launched, so the listing isn't for someone to work on that game. Scuttlebutt suggests that the game NVIDIA is...

NVIDIA has been talking up the GeForce Now for mobile gaming for a while. It recently promised to bring the service to Android devices in the future via an Android beta. Initially, the service was in beta only for Windows, Mac, and NVIDIA Shield users. The beta on those platforms is expected to end in a few months, with the service launching in full at that time. Android fans looking forward to streaming some games to their Android devices will be glad to hear that the GeForce Now app has launched in beta for Android. The catch is that the launch is only in Korea. The bright side for Android gamers wanting in on the action outside of Korea is that you can sideload the APK, which can be downloaded... Read more...
Every new technology experiences growing pains; there is typically a period of innovation and then a period of standardization. The autonomous vehicle market is no exception. Industry leaders recently agreed to establish a common hardware and software platform for autonomous vehicles. The new Autonomous Vehicle Computing Consortium (AVCC) was announced at Arm TechCon 2019. This consortium includes leaders from companies such as Arm, Bosch, Continental, DENSO, GM, NVIDIA, NXP Semiconductors, and Toyota. They hope that other automotive and technology companies will join the consortium in the future. Dipti Vachani of Arm remarked, “The future of mobility and the safe, scalable deployment of...

NVIDIA has announced a new SHIELD Experience update that is aimed at laying the groundwork for fixing the 4K streaming issues that many users have encountered. The company doesn't say that Experience Update 8.0.1 will fix the 4K streaming issues entirely; it says that the update is "a big step towards resolving 4K streaming issues." NVIDIA confirmed the issues with 4K playback last month. NVIDIA does say that it expects that most apps will resume 4K soon via coming server-side updates. Addressing apps that aren't streaming in 4K as they should isn't all the update is tackling. It also redesigns the volume UI for Android P. The update resolves occasional video playback issues,... Read more...
Today at TwitchCon, NVIDIA announced some interesting new tech that can be quite beneficial to the livestreaming community. The company has been leveraging the RT and Tensor cores in its current generation of Turing-based GeForce RTX graphics cards to enable features like real-time ray tracing, but that same hardware will be used to power the company’s new RTX Broadcast Engine. The RTX Broadcast Engine will leverage the onboard Tensor cores to enable a wide variety of effects in real-time including style filters, augmented reality, and greenscreens. In the case of RTX Greenscreen, NVIDIA is using artificial intelligence to scrub the background in the livestream, leaving just your face and... Read more...
The list of graphics cards based on NVIDIA's newest generation Turing GPU architecture has been growing, first with the expansion into GTX territory, then with the release of faster Super models to its GeForce RTX series. As it pertains to the latter, there have been rumors of NVIDIA refreshing its GeForce GTX series with Super models as well. ASUS may have confirmed that to be the case. Before we get to the rumor, let's have a look at the current Turing stack in the consumer sector (linked to our reviews of each model)... GeForce RTX 2080 Ti GeForce RTX 2080 Super GeForce RTX 2080 GeForce RTX 2070 Super GeForce RTX 2070 GeForce RTX 2060 Super GeForce RTX 2060 GeForce GTX 1660 Ti GeForce GTX... Read more...
It'd be a gross understatement to say that retro gaming has experienced something of a renaissance in recent years. Nintendo's NES Classic and SNES Classic mini-consoles or the Switch Online's NES and SNES catalogs might be the first thing that comes to mind when you think about older games, but the House of Mario is hardly alone. Sony stumbled into the retro scene last year, and both the Sega Genesis and NEC TurboGrafx-16 (by way of rights-holder Konami) will get their respective official love letters shortly. We'd be remiss, however, if we didn't think about the technology at the heart of all of these fun old games—good old software-based emulation. If it wasn't for SNES9x or Gens,... Read more...
Activision and NVIDIA have announced that they have teamed up on the Geforce RTX Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Bundle. The bundle will be offered for a limited time and will include a copy of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare which is set to launch on October 25. The game is included with the purchase of an eligible GeForce graphics card. Eligible graphics cards include the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, RTX 2080 SUPER, RTX 2080, RTX 2070 SUPER, RTX 2070, RTX 2060 SUPER or RTX 2060 as well as laptops or desktops with those GPUs inside. NVIDIA says that it is working with Activision and Infinity Ward to take the graphics in the game to never seen levels with support for ray tracing.  Those who buy one of... Read more...
LG's 2019 line of high-end OLED televisions is gaining NVIDIA G-SYNC support, which should make for some incredibly immersive gaming experiences. According to LG, its C9 and E9 TVs have been fully certified by NVIDIA to support G-SYNC, which would mark a first in the TV market. There is no dedicated hardware in the TVs, but NVIDIA's certification process ensures that G-SYNC is supported at up to 120Hz and 1440p resolutions (with 6ms input lag). If you're running 4K content, G-SYNC is locked in at 60 fps (with 13ms input lag). If that wasn't enough, the TVs all support HDR10, Dolby Vision (at 120fps) and HDMI 2.1. Audio formats supported include Dolby TrueHD and Dolby Atmos along with AI algorithms... Read more...
Back in late July, NVIDIA updated its SHIELD TV 4K streaming box to SHIELD Experience Upgrade 8.0, which was based on Android 9 Pie. The update also brought some new features along with a few bugfixes. However, what many SHIELD TV owners weren’t expecting were issues with existing 4K video playback.  NVIDIA has now acknowledged that a handful of apps have suddenly stopped playing back content at 4K resolutions. In a post to the official NVIDIA support forums, a staffer wrote: We’re aware of a 4K playback issue impacting a small number of apps on SHIELD TV devices and are working on a solution. In most of these cases, users can cast these movies to SHIELD in 4K using built-in... Read more...
