It seems like ages ago when NVIDIA launched the SHIELD K1 tablet, but it looks as though the company may be looking to make a successor to that discontinued device. Although we don't have any insight what this potential device could look like, references to a new tablet have been uncovered in newest version of NVIDIA's SHIELD Experience software. First spotted by XDA Developers, there are references in the code to a deice codenamed "Mystique." Although the SHIELD K1 tablet and the SHIELD TV both run the SHIELD Experience software, an update for the former hasn’t been released since March 2018. However, references in this latest code make point to a feature called "NvDtExp," which... Read more...
Back in September 2016, NVIDIA first introduced us to a brand new ARM64 architecture called Xavier. Xavier is a custom octa-core processor architecture that features NVIDIA’s latest Volta GPU (512 CUDA cores). When Xavier was originally announced, NVIDIA expected to begin sampling in Q4 2017, with volume production slated for 2018. Tonight, NVIDIA announced that its first samples of Xavier chips are now on the way to customers. It's been a long time coming, but NVIDIA says that Xavier is the culmination of $2 billion in research and development, along with the hard work over 2,000 engineers. NVIDIA says that Xavier can process 30 trillion operations per second while consuming just 30 watts... Read more...
NVIDIA has found plenty of partners for its DRIVE PX 2 autonomous driving platform, including the likes of Toyota and Volvo. When it was first announced back at CES 2016, NVIDIA billed Drive PX 2 as the "world's first in-car artificial intelligence supercomputer". Not one to rest on its laurels, the GPU and AI company pulled the wraps off the Drive PX 2 Pegasus platform at GTC Europe. According to NVIDIA, DRIVE PX Pegasus is capable of executing over 320 million operations per second, outpacing its predecessor by 10x. Powering this new AI systems are two next generation NVIDIA Xavier SoCs that feature an embedded GPU based on Volta architecture. This automotive-centric supercomputer brings unmatched...

Here’s the thing about most types of mobile malware in the wild; they’re avoidable. That doesn’t mean, however, if you’re not paying attention--and especially if you’re the type that likes to customize things as the Android platform is so capable of--that you might not stumble into some nasty code deplorables. Such is the case with a new, very sneaky strain of Android ad malware that has been downloaded to literally millions of devices globally, though predominantly in Southeast Asia. AndroidOS_Xavier_AXM, or Xavier for short, as it is more commonly known, is a tricky little payload that has been up on the Google Play store hiding in over 800 applications and downloaded millions of times. Its... Read more...
When enthusiasts think of NVIDIA, they typically think first and foremost about graphics cards. However, the company over the years has broadened its portfolio to include deep learning accelerators, gaming consoles, and even processing engines for self-driving cars. Today, NVIDIA is expanding on the last segment of its business by teasing Xavier. Xavier, which was announced at the European edition of the GPU Technology Conference, is an artificial intelligence (AI) supercomputer that was designed from the ground-up to be used for self-driving vehicles. Xavier is an SoC built around a custom 8-core processor architecture, and is backed by an all-new Volta GPU design. Xavier is being billed as... Read more...
