The keen eyes over at Bloomberg recently spotted several job posting from Nvidia which may suggest a return of Nvidia GPUs to Apple computers.
Some of the jobs that were recently posted include “METAL COMPUTER AND OPENCL SOFTWARE ENGINEER – MAC“, “METAL AND OPENGL SOFTWARE ENGINEER – MAC“, and “SENIOR SYSTEM SOFTWARE ENGINEER“. According to Bloomberg, one of the jobs even says that the successful applicant will “help produce the next revolutionary Apple products.”, “working in partnership with Apple”, and writing code that will “define and shape the future” of graphics software on [...]
Forza Horizon 3 releases tomorrow (for Ultimate Edition owners), while the rest of us mere mortals who’ve purchased the standard, or other editions will gain access to the title on the 27th. Today, NVIDIA has released its Game Ready drivers for GeForce graphics cards, which are optimized specifically for Microsoft’s new open-world racer. You can grab them at this link or automatically via the GeForce Experience client’s driver update function.Forza Horizon 3 System Requirements

This week, PNY announced their new custom GTX 1080 graphics card: the GeForce GTX 1080 XLR8 OC. The new card combines an NVIDIA reference-design PCB with a custom triple fan cooling system and a factory overclock of 1708 MHz core and 1848 MHZ boost.PNY GeForce GTX 1080 XLR8 OC
Sporting a rather clean industrial-style design with a black and red finish, the PNY GeForce GTX 1080 XLR8 OC features a triple 80 mm fan configuration which stay completely off while the GPU is at idle. Those fans cool a pair of aluminum heat sinks which utilize 8-mm thick nickel-plated copper heat pipes. The card draws power from a single 8-pin PCIe power connector and display output [...]
Nvidia recently settled the GeForce GTX 970 false advertising class action lawsuit that was brought against the company in 2015 after it was found that they had misrepresented the amount of onboard VRAM that was in the graphics card. Although Nvidia has denied doing anything wrong, they settled the case back in July granting those who purchased a GTX 970 between September 1, 2014 and August 24, 2016 a $30 settlement.
If you qualify, simply head over to the website www.gtx970settlement.com which will allow you to file a claim. While you may file an unlimited number of claims, each claim must also include proof of purchase.
So far, NVIDIA has introduced a number of cards based on its latest Pascal micro-architecture. Including, Titan Pascal, GTX 1080, GTX 1070 and GTX 1060 6GB and 3GB variants. With those models, NVIDIA is able to cover price segments from $1,200 all the way down to $190, however until now the company seemed unwilling to bring their latest tech into the sub-$200 market where AMD currently offers a number of solutions including the $179 RX 470 and the $119 RX 460. Today, a very interesting leak appeared thanks to the folks over at Benchlife.Pascal GP107 GPU – 768 CUDA Cores, 1.38 GHz Boost and 75W TDP

Origin PC, a company known for producing and maintaining custom gaming desktops and notebooks, today has launched their latest lineup of gaming notebooks featuring the all new GeForce 10 series mobile graphics processors. The new models, which include the EON15-X, EON17-X, and EON17-SLX will feature “desktop class” performance thanks to the addition of the new GeForce GTX 1080, GTX 1070, and GTX 1060 graphics.Origin PC Launches GeForce GTX 10 Series Powered Gaming Notebooks

With the launch of Nvidia’s Pascal based GeForce GTX 1080, GTX 1070, and GTX 1060 desktop chips now complete, Nvidia announced today that they’re bringing Pascal to the notebooks as well.
Nvidia’s launch today will bring three new notebook cards to the mix, the GeForce GTX 1080, GTX 1070 and GTX 1060. These three cards will strongly highlight the importance of the move to TSMC’s 16nm FinFET fabrication process as they’re no longer the cut down versions of the desktop cards we’re used to seeing in previous generation cards.
Nvidia is also no longer advertising these as “m” GPUs given that [...]
It was previously believed that Nvidia would be producing their GPUs on TSMC’s 16nm FinFET exclusively, but a new report from Korean business website Chosun Biz confirms that Samsung and Nvidia recently concluded talks to manufacture Nvidia’s “Pascal” architecture GPUs on Samsung’s 14nm FinFET process as well. Samsung is already testing the new GPUs on their production lines at the Giheung manufacturing plant and production of the new GPUs are expected before the end of the year.
This is good news for Nvidia. As a fabless semiconductor company, it’s crucially important to diversify production across multiple fabs [...]
At an event in Asia, NVIDIA officially confirmed the existence and specifications of the GeForce GTX 1060 3GB variant. The folks over at Videocardz reported on a picture of a presentation slide which showcases both the 6GB and 3GB variants of the Pascal GP106 based GPU, which will differ much greater than initially thought, with the 3GB variant having one SM module disabled, giving it a 128 fewer CUDA cores than the currently released 6GB model.
NVIDIA Confirms GTX 1060 3GB Specifications
As we can see in the image above, the GTX 1060 will indeed be available in a 3GB variant, just as everyone initially thought when the GTX [...]
Nvidia recently reported their earnings for Q2 FY2017 and once again smashed it out of the ballpark, beating their own estimates from 1Q FY2017.

This is also a cool $80 million higher than Nvidia’s Q1 estimate of $1.35 billion. Furthermore, GAAP earnings per share is $0.40, up 21% from the previous quarter and up a massive 700% from Q2 FY2016. Non-GAAP earnings per share came in at $0.53, up 15% from the previous quarter and up 51% from Q2 FY2016.Nvidia Quarterly Revenue Trend Q1 FY16 Q2 FY16 Q3 [...]
