Computex and E3 are both in the rear view mirror, but that does not mean the usual participants have nothing left to announce. NVIDIA proved otherwise on Monday by announcing support for ARM processors. This, according to NVIDIA, provides a new path to build extremely energy-efficient, AI-enabled exascale supercomputers. "Supercomputers are the essential instruments of scientific discovery, and achieving exascale supercomputing will dramatically expand the frontier of human knowledge," said Jensen Huang, founder and CEO of NVIDIA. "As traditional compute scaling ends, power will limit all supercomputers. The combination of NVIDIA’s CUDA-accelerated computing and ARM’s energy-efficient... Read more...
NVIDIA has something "SUPER" in store for gaming enthusiasts. The company first teased SUPER in the days leading up to Computex 2019, but made no announcements pertaining to this new branding. Over the past few weeks, reports have zeroed in on SUPER referring to a refresh of the GeForce RTX family that was first introduced last fall. A new report is now shedding light on when we might actually see these new GPUs. According to VideoCardz and WCCFTech, NVIDIA is set to announce the new SUPER family as early as next week. However, the report indicates that cards wouldn't actually be available for sale until mid-July. As for pricing, it's expected that the new SUPER... Read more...
Seeing Keanu Reeves make an appearance at E3 to promote Cyberpunk 2077, an upcoming dystopian role playing game in which he is a part of, was a delightful surprise. Less surprising, but no less welcome, is that developer CD PROJEKT RED is working with NVIDIA to support real-time ray tracing on GeForce RTX hardware (and perhaps other cards as well—more on that in a moment). "Cyberpunk 2077 is an incredibly ambitious game, mixing first-person perspective and deep role-playing, while also creating an intricate and immersive world in which to tell its story," said Matt Wuebbling, head of GeForce marketing at NVIDIA. "We think the world of Cyberpunk will greatly benefit from the realistic lighting... Read more...
Lenovo is turning its attention to its mobile workstation family, specifically its ThinkPad P Series which are getting upgraded with more potent processors and onboard graphics. Kicking things off are the ThinkPad P53, which is being billed as the world’s most powerful 15-inch class mobile workstation, and the ThinkPad P73, its 17-inch counterpart. Both are powered by up to 9th generation Intel Core i9 or Xeon octa-core processors and can be equipped with up to 128GB of DDR4 memory via four SODIMM slots. Since Lenovo knows that mobile pros often need a lot of graphics muscle on-the-go, both systems can be optioned with up to a NVIDIA Quadro RTX 5000 discrete graphics card. ThinkPad... Read more...
Ever since NVIDIA teased that something "super" was in the wings, the Internet has been buzzing with related leaks and rumors, suggesting that the NVIDIA Studio certification program was not actually the big reveal. One of the prevailing theories is that NVIDIA is readying a refresh of its existing GeForce RTX family. The latest chatter adds more fuel to the speculative fire. In case you missed it, NVIDIA two weeks ago posted a short video clip from its "NVIDIA GeForce" account on YouTube with the caption, "Something super is coming..." There wasn't much to the 16-second clip—the camera zoomed and panned around what appeared to be a reflective metal plate with the word "Super" stamped on... Read more...
We've been hearing quite a bit about NVIDIA's Quake II RTX remake over the past few months, and now it's finally available for download. As its name implies, Quake II RTX is meant to showcase the hardware capabilities of NVIDIA's current generation GeForce RTX Turing family of gaming graphics cards. The GeForce RTX cards are able to tackle real-time ray tracing thanks to their dedicated hardware RT and Tensor cores, and also support Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS). All of that processing power is put to good use in Quake II RTX, which NVIDIA says is the world's first game that is fully path-traced, which means that lighting effects like shadows, reflections, and refractions...

Remember when NVIDIA teased that "something super is coming" from its GeForce division? The initial speculation was a new graphics card, or perhaps multiple new GPUs. Then a few days later, however, NVIDIA announced a new platform and certification program for creators, called NVIDIA Studio, and it seemed as though that was the "super" surprise. Perhaps not, though. Rumors of NVIDIA launching additional GeForce RTX cards have not let up. As it relates to that, specs for an alleged GeForce RTX 2070 Ti variant are making the rounds. RTX2070Ti 2560SP 14Gbps ~1770MHz confirmed — kimi7kop (@kimi7kop) June 3, 2019 Forget the grain of salt, you might want a spoonful for this one. The rumor originates... Read more...
Samsung has announced a refreshed line of laptop computers that it says has a combination of power, speed, and style. Unfortunately, to many eyes the refined design that Samsung brags about looks a lot like Apple's MacBook Pro family. Samsung's new machines are called the Notebook 7 and Notebook 7 Force. The Notebook 7 line includes 13- and 15-inch versions with a glass display in Full HD resolution. Samsung says that both machines have a high screen-to-body ratio with "barely noticeable" bezels providing a premium viewing experience. Features include Gigabit Wi-Fi, Dolby Atmos sound, and an additional SSD slot on the larger, 15-inch notebook for more storage down the road. Both screen sizes... Read more...
MSI just announced several upgraded workstations. All of the new workstations will incorporate NVIDIA Quadro RTX graphics and 9th Gen. and Intel Core i9 processors. The lineup also includes the MSI WS65, the first laptop that is powered by a NVIDIA Quadro RTX 5000 graphics card. MSI WS65 MSI will soon release their WS65, WS75, WP65, and WE75 mobile workstations. Each workstation is now lighter with ultra-thin bezels, includes a 4K screen, and incorporates MSI’s Creator Center software, SolidWorks, CATIA, AutoCAD, and ANSYS. He devices also adhere to the United States Military Standard (MIL-STD 810G). The device are able to withstand severe conditions, including extreme temperatures and... Read more...
NVIDIA on Monday announced a new platform and certification program aimed at making it easy for creators to identify which laptops will suit their needs. It's called NVIDIA Studio, and laptops that bear the badge combine GeForce RTX GPUs with NVIDIA's Studio Stack of specialized SDKs and dedicated drivers to run the top creative applications. In part, this is also a play to extol the benefits of GPU rendering versus trying to accomplish creative tasks on CPU horsepower alone. NVIDIA never misses an opportunity to promote GPUs over CPUs, and this is another opportunity to do that. AMD and Intel might have something to say about that, of course, but from NVIDIA's vantage point, the CPU is no match... Read more...
NVIDIA has an obviously vested interest in seeing ray-traced gaming take off in a big way, as the higher end versions of its latest generation Turing cards are primed for that very thing—all of the RTX models sport dedicated RT and Tensor cores for real-time ray tracing and Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS). So, it's no surprise that NVIDIA took the reins of a ray-traced mod for Quake II and ran with it. In just a few weeks, you'll be able to play Quake II like never before. As we've reported on before, Quake II RTX is based on a Quake II Pathtraced (Q2VKPT) proof-of-concept model created by Christoph Schied, a Ph.D. student at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Germany, and who...

NVIDIA appears to have something waiting in the wings to take on a looming Navi threat from AMD. The company has posted a teaser video for an upcoming product that could be unveiled next week at Computex 2019.  NVIDIA isn't really giving us much to go on with the teaser, but the video is entitled "Something super is coming..." and the word "SUPER" is lit up at the end. So, what exactly does NVIDIA have lined up for gamers with this release? We heard rumors last week that NVIDIA would be releasing a refresh of its Turing-based GeForce RTX and GTX graphics cards. Reports indicated that we'd see boosted GPU clock and GDDR6 memory speeds to further increase performance. NVIDIA’s Turing... Read more...
We could be in for a delightfully wild ride in graphics once Computex and E3 roll around, or perhaps shortly thereafter. AMD will kick things off with a new round of graphics cards based on its Navi GPU architecture, and those could be interesting in and of themselves. Where things could truly heat up, however, is with how NVIDIA responds, and rumor has it the GPU maker is prepping a refresh of its high-end Turing parts. To this point, NVIDIA has focused on bringing Turing to the masses by following up the launch of pricey (and full featured) RTX parts with less expensive GTX models, including the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti and GeForce GTX 1660, and more recently the GeForce GTX 1650. All of those cards... Read more...
Back in late August, Lenovo launched the ThinkPad X1 Extreme notebook, which took the X1 family to new heights with a large 15.6-inch display and 8th generation Core processors. Lenovo today has introduced the second-generation version of the ThinkPad X1 Extreme, and it brings more of a good thing for those looking for a mobile workhorse. This time around, the ThinkPad X1 Extreme has traded out the 8th generation Core processors for Intel's latest 9th generation Core i9 processors. The first-generation laptop was available with hexa-core Core i9 processors at the top-end of the range, and we expect at least hexa-core (and potentially octa-core processors) this... Read more...
