Nvidia Shows Off 1,700Hz Display Aimed at VR

Think your 120Hz monitor is impressive? Nvidia had just demoed a 1,700Hz monitor at GTC 2016.

The display is still in its prototyping stage. According to Nvidia, this new display technology is the best implementation to eliminating latency when the VR headset moves around.

Nvidia demonstrated the smoothness of its flashy display onstage by rapidly shaking the screen. In the demonstration, the display was able to refresh fast enough to keep the logo centered and maintain a high degree of clarity.

While it’s awesome that this technology is being experimented with, whether or not users will be able to tell the difference between 1,700Hz and 500Hz [...]

GDC 2015: Nvidia Announces Titan X Graphics Card with 8 BIllion Transistors, 12GB VRam

Nvidia recently surprised attendees of the 2015 GDC (Game Development Conference) by unveiling Nvidia’s upcoming flagship GPU, the Titan X.

According to Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang, the Titan X will be the most powerful GPU on the planet. Designed for VR applications, it will feature 8 Billion transistors, a 12GB frame buffer, and will be built on Nvidia’s 28nm Maxwell architecture. Nvidia’s current flagship, the Titan Black, is built on the 28nm Kepler architecture, has 7.1 Billion transistors and a 6GB frame buffer.

To demonstrate its graphical prowess, Nvidia ran a VR demonstration using Thief of Shadows, a customized game title built on the [...]

Nvidia Unveils GTX Titan Z with 12GB VRAM for $3,000

It looks like there’s a new super GPU solution in town as Nvidia recently announced the GeForce GTX Titan Z at their annual GPU Developer’s Conference in San Jose. The GeForce GTX Titan Z is a dual GPU solution equipped with 12GB 7Gbps GDDR5 memory, 5760 CUDA cores, and 8 Teraflops of pure processing power. Essentially, it’s like having twin Titans optimized to run with the same clock speed with dynamic power balancing for some supremely amazing graphics processing performance.

Of course with great performance does come great price and the Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan Z will be priced at around $3000 when it launches sometime in April. Nvidia is aiming [...]

Review: MSI GeForce GTX 750 Gaming 1GB

Hello Maxwell

Four years ago Nvidia launched the 40nm based Fermi GPU, two years ago Nvidia launched the 28nm based Kepler GPU, and now, two years after Kepler’s launch, it’s now time for Nvidia to launch their latest and greatest GPU – Maxwell.

Back at GTC of last year, we first officially received confirmation of Nvidia’s Maxwell GPUs, with Maxwell’s main goal of continuing the trend Nvidia began setting with their Kepler GPUs – better performance yet not at the expense of increased power consumption. Prior to Kepler, Nvidia had traditionally not worried too much about power consumption as long as performance increased by leaps [...]

Rumor: Nvidia Launching Maxwell Based GTX 750 Ti February 18

Nvidia will be unleashing their first Maxwell architecture based GPU, the GeForce GTX 750 Ti, as soon as February 18. While specific details are still unknown at this point, Maxwell’s first introduction will be based off current generation TSMC 28nm process with future iterations coming in at the TSMC 20nm process, which should be ready Q1 this year.  While this is a bit different than Nvidia’s traditional high end first product launches, this makes sense as it allows Nvidia to test the waters with the new architecture while at the same time give TSMC time to ramp up production of 20nm ICs.

For those unfamiliar with Nvidia’s Maxwell architecture, [...]

GTC 2013: Nvidia Logan and Parker Next Generation Tegra Architectures

In addition to revealing their updated GPU roadmap, Nvidia recently also revealed an updated Tegra roadmap which includes a couple new Tegra mobile SoCs.

The first upcoming Tegra SoC on the roadmap is called Tegra Logan (Tegra 5), which will succeed the recently introduced Tegra 4 SoC. The defining feature of the new Tegra Logan SoC is that it will be the first Tegra SoC to integrate 28nm Kepler graphics on the chip itself. With Kepler graphics integration, Logan will have native support for OpenGL 4.3 and full support for CUDA 5. This leverages Nvidia’s extensive experience as a GPU manufacturer as Kepler graphics on the SoC should give Tegra Logan far superior [...]

GTC 2013: PNY Shows Off Prototype Modular AIO GPU/CPU Water Cooler

As one of Nvidia’s biggest GPU partners, PNY also claimed one of the largest booths at Nvidia’s annual GTC event. Being one of the only companies out there with product lines for pretty much every type of consumer from gamer to enterprise, PNY had a ton of products on the show floor, one of which was a highly promising prototype of an all in one (AIO) CPU/GPU cooler.

Those familiar with PNY’s line of XLR8 graphics cards will also be familiar with the fact that water cooled graphics cards aren’t necessarily new for the company. Back when the GeForce 500 Series graphics cards were the hot new thing, PNY already brought to market an AIO water [...]

GTC 2013: Nvidia Maxwell and Volta Next Generation GPU Architectures

Recently at Nvidia’s GTC (GPU Technology Conference) 2013 conference, Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang talked briefly about Nvidia’s GPU roadmap containing next generation Maxwell and Volta GPU architectures.

Whereas current generation Kepler’s major feature is dynamic parallelism, Maxwell furthers this with a unified virtual memory. This allows the memory in the GPU to be accessed directly by the CPU, and memory in the CPU to be accessed via the GPU, which in turn helps increase power efficiency, performance and promote better programmability. Maxwell, which was first introduced to us in late 2010 appears to be coming sometime in 2014 and will be succeeding [...]

GTC 2013: Keynote, GRID VCA

As it would seem, this time of the year is jam packed with different conventions that scream for our attention. With many great options on where to go and what to see, we decided to head out to Nvidia’s 2013 GPU Technology Conference in San Jose to see what Nvidia and their partners have in store for this year.

To kick off the event, we attended the opening keynote which was presented by none other than the man, the myth, the legend, Jen-Hsun Huang, CEO and President of Nvidia, himself.  Within the first couple of minutes into the keynote, it was clear that GTC is a very technically focused convention, oriented towards developers, researchers, businesses and enterprises [...]
