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 they’re no [...]
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 ensuring that supply [...]
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 1060 was merely a [...]
Nvidia recently reported their earnings for Q2 FY2017 and once again smashed it out of the ballpark, beating their own estimates from 1Q FY2017.
According to both GAAP and non-GAAP revenues, Nvidia made a whopping $1.43 billion in Q2 FY17 which is up 9% from last quarter, and up 24% from Q2 FY2016. 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 [...]
Today, ZOTAC has announced another addition to their GeForce graphics card lineup, the GeForce GTX 1080 ArcticStorm, which aims to cater to the liquid-cooling community with a full-coverage water block for plugging into custom loops.ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1080 ArcticStorm
As stated, the card features a full-coverage water block which features technologies such as Direct Copper Contact and Microchannels to “maximize thermal performance”. Aesthetically, the front of the card is very nice featuring an industrial design which combines smoked plexiglass with a brush aluminum accent, for a very modern look and clean look.
Around back, the aesthetic [...]
Several weeks ago, we reported that Nvidia launched Pascal based Titan X graphics card and we are now happy to report that the new card is available for purchase. Pricing on the new card is pegged at a whopping $1,200 and is currently exclusively available directly through Nvidia.
For those who missed the original announcement, the Pascal Titan X is Nvidia’s latest top end consumer graphics card featuring Nvidia’s latest GP102 GPU. The GPU features 12-billion transistors and a whopping 3,584 CUDA cores running at 1.41GHz (1.53GHz Boost). Complementing the processing cores is 12GB of GDDR5X clocked at 10GHz effective running on a 384-bit memory interface. [...]
In a recent article by Digitimes, it has been reported that NVIDIA may be announcing their lineup of mobile GPUs based on their all-new Pascal architecture at this year’s Gamescom in Germany on August 17th-21st.NVIDIA GeForce 10 Series Mobile Specifications
It is reported that notebook manufacturers such as ASUS, Gigabyte and MSI would likely showcase their new gaming notebook lineups, equipped with GeForce GTX 1080, GTX 1070 and GTX 1060 graphics parts. While we don’t know the exact specifications of the GTX 1080 Mobile variant, we do have some information on the GTX 1070 and GTX 1060 mobile chips, which are very similar to the desktop variants. It is [...]
Nvidia recently released their newest GeForce Game Ready 368.81 WHQL Drivers which contain a slew of major bugfixes and enhancements for VR gamers.
Among the problems that were identified by early VR adopters, Nvidia addressed clock speeds not reaching boost clocks in VR and the compatibility issue with the HTC Vive and DisplayPort. These issues should now be fixed with the latest update.
Further VR enhancements include optimizations for NVIDIA VR Funhouse, Everest VR, Obduction, Raw Data and The Assembly. Those with GeForce GTX 1080, 1070, and 980 Ti can now download NVIDIA VR Funhouse from Steam.
Nvidia is also bringing in Ansel support [...]
ASUS has revealed an all-new card in its lineup, the GeForce GTX 1070 DUAL, which features a completely white and black design which is perfectly suited to match their X99A series of motherboards.ASUS GeForce GTX 1070 DUAL
The GTX 170 DUAL features a factory overclock of 1582 MHz on the base clock and 1771 MHz on the boost clock. The cooler features a dual fan-design, compared to larger triple fan solution found on the STRIX series. The card features a single 8-pin power connector like the GTX 1070 reference board, however, it does appear to feature a non-reference PCB design with more power phases than the reference board.
Here are the basic specifications, [...]
With the release of NVIDIA’s new mid-ranged GPU, the Pascal-based GTX 1060 set for just a little over a week from now, on August 19th. NVIDIA’s add-in board partners are readying their own custom designs for the card, hoping to set themselves apart from each other. Today, ZOTAC has announced two models, the GTX 1060 AMP! and GTX 1060 Mini, both of which are described as being “Super compact short length cards.”ZOTAC GTX 1060 AMP! and Mini Graphics Cards

After AMD launched the new Radeon RX480 making it the new king of mid-range graphics, Nvidia has been scrambling over the past few weeks to launch their own new mid-range card to compete.
With leak after leak on the new GeForce GTX 1060, it looks like Nvidia is finally letting the cat out of the bag. Based on Nvidia’s new 16nm FinFET GP106 GPU, the new GeForce GTX 1060 contains 1,280 CUDA cores, a boost clock of 1.7GHz, and 6GB GDDR5 VRAM running on a 192-bit memory interface. As expected, it’s also ultra power efficient with a 120W TDP, drawing power from just one 6-pin connector.
The new GeForce GTX 1060 is expected to perform on par with the last [...]
