IoT and machine learning are two of the fastest growing segments in the computing world and to help satiate the demand for ever more powerful hardware, more power efficient hardware, Nvidia announced the Jetson TX2 platform designed specifically for these applications.
Coming in a package that’s the size of an average credit card, the Jetson TX2 platform is twice as powerful as its predecessor, the Jetson TX1 platform, while sipping less than 7.5W of power.Manufacturer NvidiaModel Jetson TX2GPU Pascal-based GPU with 256 CUDA CoresCPU Dual Nvidia Denver 2 x64, Quad ARM A57RAM 8GB LPDDR4Storage 32GB eMMCCamera 12 CSI lanes supporting [...]
Although it’s unfortunate that Nvidia didn’t reveal any new graphics products at CES 2015, Nvidia did have a huge showing at this year which revolved around their latest Tegra X1, which promises to combine desktop level performance at mobile friendly power consumption levels.
Built on TSMC’s latest 20nm process, the new Tegra X1 is what Nvidia calls a Mobile Superchip. Equipped with a 64-bit ARM Octo-Core CPU (4x A57 + 4x A53) and an incredible 256 Maxwell graphics cores, Nvidia claims that the Tegra X1’s rendering power doubles that of their own Tegra K1 SoC yet still remains extremely power efficient, operating at a mere 10w.
Last week at CES 2015, we half expected Nvidia to give us some news on their upcoming mid-range GeForce GTX 960 GPU, but rather than hear about desktop GPU news, we were instead greeted with Nvidia’s Tegra X1 Super Chip which is still cool, but definitely not GTX 960 cool.
However, all is not lost as Videocardz recently got their hands on what appears to be the first die shot of the GM206 GPU – the GPU recently rumored to be powering the upcoming Nvidia GeForce GTX 960.
The specific die variant pictured in the leaked die shot is the GM206-300-A1. For comparison, Videocardz.com put a die shot of the Nvidia’s flagship GM204 GPU [...]
Over the past couple weeks, we’ve been hearing rumors about the possibility of a brand new mid-range Nvidia GPU based on the upcoming Maxwell architecture coming sometime this month, and according to some of the latest screenshots released by UK Gaming Computer, it seems like the rumors may not just be simple rumor after all.
Above we have two GPU-Z screenshots of the rumored Nvidia GeForce GTX 750 and the GeForce GTX 750 Ti. According to the screenshots, both GPUs will be using the upcoming GM107 GPU core, which is expected to be based off the Maxwell architecture (hence the M in the GM107). Previously it was thought that Nvidia could be moving to [...]
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 [...]
Among the most popular introductions at this year’s CES was the Nvidia Project Shield, which is Nvidia’s newest Tegra 4 powered gaming console. This introduction is exciting in a number of ways. The first is that Nvidia is entering the gaming console market. Nvidia has been traditionally known for producing top tier graphics cards and mobile processors, so the move into mobile gaming seems like a logical step for the company. The second exciting thing about Project Shield is that it includes Nvidia’s newest Tegra 4 ARM processor.
Let’s talk a little about both of these exciting new introductions.Tegra 4

Looks like the Toshiba Thrive 7″ Tablet is now on sale currently direct through Toshiba, but I am expecting Amazon as well as other 3rd party retailers to be carrying it soon. As expected the 16gb edition is coming in at under $400, a full $20 under.
If you’re interested in picking up the 7″, Tegra 2 powered tablet, drop by the link below. It probably won’t go out of stock anytime soon so no rush.
It looks like the new Toshiba Thrive 7″ tablet is slated to go on sale tomorrow, so for those of you who aren’t that interested in the 10″ ASUS Transformer Prime, you might want to take a look at this 7 incher.
It’s got a 1280×800 led backlit display, Android 3.2.1 Honeycomb, 16 or 32gb internal storage, 1gb of memory and of course, the latest Nvidia Tegra 2 processor.
Pricing isn’t confirmed yet, but it should be under $400 for the 16gb version and under $450 for the 32gb edition. Anybody picking one of these bad boys up? Comment below.
A case can be very telling of the components inside, so why not give a case that has “awesome” written all over it? Improved upon the popular and successful Corsair Graphite 600T, the special White Edition features a new removable acrylic side window as well as a beautiful, high-quality paint job. With a roomy interior and 8 expansion slots, this case can take ATX form factor motherboards and the largest graphics cards. Cable management is a breeze with plenty of openings leading to the back of the case. And with two 200mm fans (and [...]
