Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 Ti Confirmed in Latest MSI Afterburner Beta

Information about Nvidia’s upcoming GeForce GTX 1070 Ti has been rumored extensively over the past month, but nothing has been confirmed until now. Some keen observers recently spotted a line in the patch notes for the latest beta of MSI’s Afterburner software which reveals that the GTX 1070 Ti does exist and is likely coming sooner rather than later.

According to the patch notes for MSI Afterburner Beta Version 4.4.0:

“Added core voltage control for reference design NVIDIA GeForce GT 1070 Ti series graphics cards”

*Note there does appear to be a typo in the changelog as it shows GT 1070 Ti rather than GTX 1070 Ti.

Graphics Shipments Increase Amidst Slumping Desktop PC Sales

More consumers are opting to keep their current systems as newer generation CPUs and their platforms are no longer offering enough performance gains to justify a new purchase. Consumers looking for high-performance computing are instead turning to upgrading other components such as graphics or storage for a speed boost.

In graphics, a report by JPR has revealed that total AIB graphics shipments in 4Q2016 increased by 5.6% quarter-to-quarter and 21.1% year-to-year. In contrast, overall desktop PC shipments fell by 10.9% over the year.

Over the course of 2016, graphics has seen some major performance improvements as both Nvidia and AMD released their next [...]

Best Custom Gaming PC Build Under $1,200 [February 2017]

Mid-Range Gaming PC Build

Late last year, we put together a $1,200 custom gaming PC build which was very popular among the readers, but with new hardware releases over the past few months, we decided to once again put together a new build with the latest components. Our goal for this month’s build is once again put together a system with the greatest amount of performance for running all the latest games at mid to high settings at 1080P, 1440P, or 1600P without compromising style or going overbudget.

Let’s take a look at how we did!

TSMC 7nm Process Ready to Go, Samsung 7nm Still in Development

At the International Solid State Circuit Conference (ISSCC), both TSMC and Samsung had working chips samples built on their respective 7nm nodes. However, the two companies gave very different outlooks on their readiness.

According to the presentation offered by TSMC, they described the condition of their 7nm node as “healthy”. Samsung on the other hand, had a bit less confidence in its production method, showcasing a development chip that suggests 7nm chips may not be ready for at least a few more years.

The reason behind the contradicting prospects is due to the different manufacturing techniques. Because TSMC will likely be producing the Apple A11 [...]

Nvidia’s Quadro GP100 Announced, Will Supercharge Your Deep Learning and Design Capabilities

Kicking off the Solidworks World conference currently being held in Los Angeles, California, Nvidia recently announced that the supergrandaddy GP100 GPU has finally trickled its way into a Quadro workstation card.

Known by its street name, “The Big Pascal”, the GP100 GPU is the massive GPU powering the Tesla P100 which features 16.5 billion transistors spread across a 610mm² die. In comparison, the GP102 GPU used in the flagship consumer Titan X has just 12 billion transistors and a 471mm² die.

The new card, known as the Quadro GP100 is so powerful and in a class of its own, Nvidia didn’t even bother changing the name of the card to line [...]

TSMC Building New $15.7 Billion 5nm, 3nm Fab, Expects Production as Early as 2022

The world’s largest contract chipmaker, TSMC, is investing for the future as recent reports reveals that they plan to build a new $500 Billion NTD ($15.7 Billion USD) chip fab for producing upcoming 5nm and 3nm chips.

TSMC has already asked the government to help look for possible future manufacturing sites. The site will require somewhere between 50-80 hectares of land and according to Taiwan’s Minister of Science and Technology, Yang Hung-duen, it’ll likely be located somewhere in Taiwan’s southern city of Kaohsiung. The new fab is expected to be built and operational as early as 2022.

Currently, TSMC’s most advanced 16nm FinFET [...]

Samsung to Develop, Begin Mass Production of 15/16nm DRAM Next Year

Samsung recently told investors that they’re planning to make some of the biggest investments into their semiconductor facilities this year and the accelerated development of next generation DRAM may be one of the results of that investment.

According to Business Korea sources, Samsung is planning to accelerate development their next generation 1ynm product (15nm or 16nm) in order to begin mass producing it by 2H2017. Further, Samsung expects to continue ramping up 18nm DRAM production as well, expecting 10nm class DRAM to make up half of Samsung’s DRAM shipments by 2H2017.

It was previously estimated that Samsung would completely shift to 10nm DRAM [...]

Nvidia Announces GeForce GTX 1050, GTX 1050 Ti Entry Level Graphics Cards

Nvidia today announced their new GeForce GTX 1050 and GeForce GTX 1050 Ti which isn’t much of a surprise since pretty much every detail of the upcoming cards were already leaked previously.

As expected, the GeForce GTX 1050 and GTX 1050 Ti will feature the GP107 Pascal architecture based GPU which is manufactured on Samsung’s 14nm FinFET process. This is significantly different from the rest of the Pascal lineup which is manufactured on TSMC’s 16nm FinFET process. The GeForce GTX 1050 will feature 640 CUDA cores, 2GB of GDDR5 memory, a TDP of 75W and will start at $109. The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti will feature 768 CUDA cores, 4GB of GDDR5 memory, a TDP of [...]
