NVIDIA has launched a new set of graphics drivers aimed specifically at creators who use programs like Adobe Photoshop and Blender Cycles. Appropriately called "Creator Ready" drivers, these will exist alongside NVIDIA's "Game Ready" driver packages that are optimized for gaming and often tuned for the latest game releases. Similar to how AMD maintains two separate sets of graphics drivers—regular and Pro version of its Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition—NVIDIA now has two sets as well. Both contain the full feature set and application support for games, so users can choose either driver they wish, depending on which they do more often—play games or create content. The primary...

When NVIDIA launched its first trio of Turing GPUs – the GeForce RTX 2070, RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti – the headlining feature of the cards was their support for hardware-based real-time ray tracing. We’ve seen titles like Battlefield V and Metro Exodus make full use of real-time ray tracing to deliver ultra-realistic reflections, water effects, and shadows (among other visual effects) to enhance the gaming experience.  The effects look amazing, but they require beefy hardware to extract acceptable performance. But given that ray tracing technology has been commoditized within DirectX 12 as DirectX Raytracing (DXR), it will soon possible for... Read more...
Last week, we heard some rather interesting rumors that NVIDIA was on the verge of releasing a new member in its Pascal family of graphic cards: the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti. Today, we've come across not one, but two separate sources that seem to suggest that the new GPU is right around the corner. The first comes from none other than Gigabyte, which took to its Facebook page to post the following image: Captioned with "Ti will get you too... eventually...", Gigabyte is obviously riffing off the insanely popular film "It", which is terrifying audiences across the globe. In the image, we see a killer clown, an image of an Aorus GeForce GTX graphics card, the "Ti" moniker, a wallet and a red balloon... Read more...
The so-called cryptocurrency market is booming, or at least parts of it are. One of the most popular digital currencies is Bitcoin. It recently topped the $3,000 mark for the first time since its debut in 2009, and had you owned just $27 worth at that time, you'd be sitting on $15,000,000. While volatile, the price just keeps going up over time. This has kept the mining market alive, and NVIDIA reportedly plans to capitalize on it by releasing specialized Pascal cards tuned specifically for digging up crytocurrencies. News of NVIDIA's plans can be found all over the web, though most reports trace back to a couple of sources. One is a tech site called Goldfries that claims it received word that... Read more...
For lightweight gaming and content creation chores such as photo and video editing on the go, pouring funds into a laptop with a high-end graphics chip is overkill. Even a GeForce GTX 1050 Ti can quite a bit more powerful than what some people need. To address that market, NVIDIA has gone and added a new mobile Pascal GPU to its lineup, the GeForce MX150. Hardcore gamers looking to crank up the visual quality settings in the most demanding games will want to look elsewhere, but for users who need more oomph that what integrated graphics provide, the GeForce MX150 is NVIDIA's answer. It is built on the same 16-nanometer FinFET manufacturing process as other Pascal GPUs, and as such it brings with... Read more...
Acer is determined to keep gamers entertained with a flurry of new products, and it is targeting mobile-minded gamers with the introduction of the Predator Triton 700 and Predator Helios 300 gaming notebooks, both of which can be equipped with Intel Kaby Lake processors and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 10-Series graphics cards. The Predator Triton 700 is perhaps the star of the two, sporting a 0.74-inch thick frame that seems to take direct aim at the Razer Blade family of gaming notebooks. The Predator Triton 700 features an aluminum chassis and a 15.6-inch FHD IPS display with G-SYNC. Powering the 5.7-pound machine are Intel’s seventh-generation Kaby Lake Core processors, which can be partnered with... Read more...
NVIDIA is officially launching its most powerful gaming graphics card today, the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti. It was announced last week at the Game Developers Conference and pre-orders began shortly thereafter. However, the cards will begin shipping tomorrow, from on-line retailers, system builders, and add-in-board partners. The GeForce GTX 1080 Ti’s specifications may elicit some quizzical looks in light of previous-gen offerings, with its odd 11GB of GDDR5X RAM and 352-bit memory interface, but rest assured this card is an absolute beast. Though its memory complement, interface, and a few blocks within the GPU are reduced versus the mighty NVIDIA Titan X, the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti makes up for its... Read more...
Ever since NVIDIA launched Pascal, the one card that enthusiasts have been champing (not chomping) at the bit for is the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti. An earlier rumor had NVIDIA announcing the much anticipated Ti variant at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas last month, but that did not happen. The speculation that followed was that NVIDIA might skip the Ti part entirely. Maybe it will, but according to new (unconfirmed) information making the rounds, the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti is only about a month away. Swedish-language website Nordic Hardware claims to have heard directly from graphics card makers in Taiwan that the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti will arrive to retail in late March, most likely around...

A couple of weeks back, NVIDIA unveiled a family of new professional Quadro cards, based on the company’s Pascal GPU architecture. The latest additions to the Quadro line-up run the gamut in terms of features and capabilities, from the low-power, small form factor Quadro P400 to the gargantuan, ultra-powerful Quadro GP100. Smack dab in the middle of the line-up are a pair of mid-range offerings, the Quadro P4000 and Quadro P2000, which we’ll be featuring here.The Quadro P4000 and P2000 are both single-slot, capable solutions that target more mainstream professional-graphics market segments, very much like the AMD Radeon Pro WX 5100 and WX 7100 we recently evaluated. We’ve got the Quadro P4000’s... Read more...
Things are definitely looking good over in NVIDIA land these days. Yesterday afternoon, the company announced its fiscal Q4 2017 and full-year fiscal 2017 earnings and the results were quite impressive. Revenue for the quarter shot up 55 percent to $2.17 billion compared to the same period a year ago. Likewise, full-year revenue rose 38 percent year-over-year to $6.91 billion.NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang Non-GAAP earnings per diluted share for the quarter were reported at $1.13 compared to just $0.52 a year earlier, while the full-year metric was $3.06, representing an 83 percent increase. Nearly all of NVIDIA’s business sectors witnessed growth during the quarter, with Gaming revenue increasing... Read more...
The same awesome architecture that powers NVIDIA's latest generation graphics cards can now be found throughout the maker's entire professional Quadro line for the desktop with top to bottom solutions. We're of course talking about Pascal, the game-changing architecture that made playing titles at a 4K resolution on a single graphics card possible. Pascal now powers half a dozen more Quadro cards that flesh out its existing lineup. Having access to Pascal on the engineering side will provide a boost in performance in several categories. VR, photo-realism, and deep learning technologies, all of which are trending in the professional arena right now, feature bigger data sets and are more complex... Read more...
One of the biggest moments in the history of 3D graphics is when NVIDIA released its Pascal architecture last year. The generational leap in graphics performance lived up to the hype with higher end parts negating the need to run multiple graphics cards in SLI for consistently smooth gaming at 4K. But while Pascal has barely had time to stretch its legs, NVIDIA is already looking ahead to its next GPU architecture, Volta, which may release later this year. Rumor has it that NVIDIA has tapped TSMC to build Volta GPUs on a 12-nanometer FinFET manufacturing process. It is a loose rumor—basically a dude on a Beyond3D's forum who is listed as "site staff" in his profile—though it is certainly plausible.... Read more...
If history tells us anything, it is that NVIDIA will eventually release a GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics card. There were rumors that it would make a debut at the Consumer Electronics Show, but that event has now come and went. While that is mildly disappointing, do not be too bummed out about it—apparently NVIDIA is still planning to launch the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, which will be available around PAX East 2017.That is not confirmed, of course. However, here is what we know. NVIDIA posted a job listing last month for a Senior Marketing Manager and outlined some very specific duties the chosen candidate would be in charge of. One of the duties it listed is to ensure that GeForce GTX 980 Ti graphics... Read more...
NVIDIA is bringing its cloud-based GeForce Now game service to PCs and Macs, the company announced at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. Previously exclusive to Shield device owners, it was only a matter of time before NVIDIA invited PC gamers to the fold, many of which lack the necessary hardware to play high-end titles. That is what NVIDIA is banking on, anyway. GeForce Now is powered by NVIDIA's mighty Pascal architecture, and specifically its GeForce GTX 1060 and GTX 1080 graphics cards, which have been outfitted in the company's cloud data centers. When gamers register for GeForce Now, they can play for free for 8 hours on a GeForce GTX 1060 PC or 4 hours on a GeForce GTX... Read more...
