NVIDIA isn't just a company that is known for its gaming products like the GeForce RTX Series; it has quickly made a name for itself with enterprise hardware and solutions to accelerate artificial intelligence operations. Today, NVIDIA announced a new partnership with the United States Postal Service (USPS) that will see the government agency adopting advanced AI technology to provide a 10x speed uplift in data processing at its mail centers. For starters, USPS datacenters will be upgraded to feature NVIDIA's potent V100 Tensor Core GPUs that are trained for multiple AI algorithms. From there, the USPS will deploy those algorithms with NVIDIA EGX edge computing systems at nearly 200 postal facilities... Read more...
It may have taken a country minute, but Red Dead Redemption 2 is now available to play on PC. The anticipated release to the best platform for gaming (sorry, console friends) unlocked this morning at 8:00 am Eastern (5:00 am Pacific), after having launched to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles a little over a year ago. What's Special About Red Dead Redemption 2 On PC While we patiently awaited RDR2's release to PC, Rockstar Games was busying polishing things up and adding some new bits. "Red Dead Redemption 2 for PC takes full advantage of the power of the PC to bring every corner of this massive, rich and detailed world to life from the windswept snowy peaks of the Grizzly Mountains to the...

Those who have been patiently awaiting for NVIDIA to refresh its SHIELD TV streaming lineup were rewarded this week with two new models, the 2019 SHIELD TV and SHIELD TV Pro. Both come with a revamped remote control that is one of the highlights of these newly updated models, though if you are not a Netflix user, the rather large Netflix button that sits at the bottom is a wasted feature. Or is it? Actually, you can do something about it. No, we're not talking about ripping the button out of the remote (please don't attempt that). Instead, you can remap the Netflix button to perform a function that is more useful to your operation of the SHIELD TV. This is not something NVIDIA includes in its... Read more...
NVIDIA is expanding its GeForce GTX family of graphics cards today, with a pair of new Turing-based GPUs. As their branding suggests, the new GeForce GTX 1660 Super and GeForce GTX 1650 Super sit above their “non-Super” branded counterparts in NVIDIA’s line-up, but a notch below GeForce GTX Ti variants. It is only the GeForce GTX 1660 Super that is arriving on store shelves today, however. The GeForce GTX 1650 Super will be arriving at little later in November. NVIDIA is introducing some new driver and GeForce Experience-related features today too, which we will cover in a just bit. We’ve got a couple of GeForce GTX 1660 Super cards on hand, one from Gigabyte and the other... Read more...
The NVIDIA SHIELD TV is widely regarded as the best media streaming device on the market. In addition to offering high-performance, access to a massive repository of 4K streaming services and apps, and leading-edge features that some competitors have only just recently caught up with, the SHIELD TV gives users access to GeForce NOW and game streaming capabilities from a GeForce-enabled PC. There is a growing library of native AAA Android games too, along with a myriad of casual games as well. And that's not to mention the huge community of enthusiasts that use the SHIELD TV to emulate a multitude of consoles and retro arcade machines from yesteryear. Whether using it right out of the box or side-loading... Read more...
We have some unofficial specs to report in regards to NVIDIA's upcoming GeForce GTX 1660 Super and GeForce GTX 1650 Super graphics cards. While not confirmed (by us), there is a good chance the leaked specifications for both cards are accurate, given how close we presumably are to each card's retail launch. It's common practice for companies to send out press decks and other information ahead of new product launches, and of course actual hardware as well (so reviews are ready to post). This kind of information is almost always shared under embargo. That's also how leaks happen. As it were, the folks at Videocardz claim to have gotten their hands on information pertaining to the full specifications... Read more...
If you’re itchin’ to get your hands on NVIDIA’s brand-new SHIELD TV Pro or SHIELD TV, and don’t want to wait until the end of the month when they officially launch, you might have a chance to score one early from Best Buy. NVIDIA has already started shipping the new 4K media streamers to Best Buy locations around the United States in preparation for next week’s launch. The folks at Android Police obtained screenshots of Best Buy’s internal inventory management software that shows listings for both the SHIELD TV Pro and SHIELD TV; the former carries the SKU 6370425, while the latter’s SKU is 6370422. So, if you’re lucky,... Read more...
It's incredibly tough to keep a secret from the Internet at large. Just ask NVIDIA, which is getting ready to launch Super variants of its GeForce GTX 1660 and GeForce GTX 1650. As it pertains to the latter, rumor has it NVIDIA will formally introduce the GeForce GTX 1650 Super to public on November 22, roughly a month after the GeForce GTX 1660 Super makes its debut on October 29. Neither of these dates have been officially announced, mind you, but they are at least plausible time frames. Reviewers and members of the media typically receive this kind of information ahead of time, albeit under embargo. Even though that is the case, however, leaks inevitably happen. That appears to the be the... Read more...
At this point, we are reasonably confident NVIDIA will extend its Super refresh strategy over to its GeForce GTX family of Turing cards, and it appears the GeForce GTX 1660 is first in line. Following numerous leaks on the subject, the latest unofficial chatter is NVIDIA will introduce a GeForce GTX 1660 Super model on October 29. The rumored release date is at least plausible.

Here's a look at one of them... According to Videocardz, the GeForce GTX 1660 Super will launch at... Read more...

We've been hearing quite a bit about NVIDIA's upcoming "Super" refresh of its GeForce GTX Turing family of graphics cards. Over the past few weeks, we seen leaks concerning Zotac's upcoming GeForce GTX 1660 Super-based gaming card, and ASUS is already reportedly ready to unleash a number of new SKUs based on the GPU. Today, we're getting some clarification on the final specs for the GeForce GTX 1660 Super thanks to well-connected hardware sleuth momomo_us. momomo_us stumbled across a product listing on a Chinese-based e-commerce site that lists a Maxsun GeForce GTX 1660 Super graphics card. Judging by the images, this is a custom design complete with that looks like a relatively beefy heatsink... Read more...
It looks as though Amazon isn’t the only retailer spilling NVIDIA’s secrets for upcoming streaming devices. Amazon got the ball rolling with the SHIELD TV Pro earlier today, while Newegg has posted a product page for the all-new SHIELD TV.  This entry-level device is shaped like a small cylinder measuring 1.57 inches wide and 6.5 inches tall. Despite its tiny dimensions, it still manages to incorporate an HDMI port, GbE port, a microSD reader, and a proprietary power port.  The new SHIELD TV carries the same NVIDIA Tegra X1+ processor as the SHIELD TV Pro, but makes do with just 8GB of internal storage instead of 16GB. We’d imagine that this streamer will... Read more...
NVIDIA has a game studio with the sole task of bringing ray tracing effects to old titles to spruce up their looks. Confirmation of plans to ray trace additional classic game comes from a job listing that the company posted looking for someone to join its NVIDIA Lightspeed Studios team. As for what the name of the game the person who lands the job in the listing will be working on, NVIDIA is mum. All the listing says of the game is that it is a title "you know and love, but we can't talk about it here." NVIDIA has shown off Quake II RTX, but the job listing was posted after that game launched, so the listing isn't for someone to work on that game. Scuttlebutt suggests that the game NVIDIA is...

NVIDIA has been talking up the GeForce Now for mobile gaming for a while. It recently promised to bring the service to Android devices in the future via an Android beta. Initially, the service was in beta only for Windows, Mac, and NVIDIA Shield users. The beta on those platforms is expected to end in a few months, with the service launching in full at that time. Android fans looking forward to streaming some games to their Android devices will be glad to hear that the GeForce Now app has launched in beta for Android. The catch is that the launch is only in Korea. The bright side for Android gamers wanting in on the action outside of Korea is that you can sideload the APK, which can be downloaded... Read more...
