What is fast becoming the worst kept secret in tech is the pending launch of a GeForce GTX 1660 Super model. NVIDIA has not yet officially announced any such product, but the leaks keep coming. The latest one is a series of what look to be official press renders of a couple Zotac brand SKUs. We will get to those in a moment, but first let's discuss the Super brand. NVIDIA refreshed its higher end Turing cards with Super models shortly before AMD launched its Radeon RX 5700 XT and Radeon RX 5700 cards. So far there are three Super SKUs. They include... GeForce RTX 2080 Super GeForce RTX 2070 Super GeForce RTX 2060 Super There has been plenty of chatter pointing to NVIDIA refreshing other Turing... Read more...
Every new technology experiences growing pains; there is typically a period of innovation and then a period of standardization. The autonomous vehicle market is no exception. Industry leaders recently agreed to establish a common hardware and software platform for autonomous vehicles. The new Autonomous Vehicle Computing Consortium (AVCC) was announced at Arm TechCon 2019. This consortium includes leaders from companies such as Arm, Bosch, Continental, DENSO, GM, NVIDIA, NXP Semiconductors, and Toyota. They hope that other automotive and technology companies will join the consortium in the future. Dipti Vachani of Arm remarked, “The future of mobility and the safe, scalable deployment of...

NVIDIA has announced a new SHIELD Experience update that is aimed at laying the groundwork for fixing the 4K streaming issues that many users have encountered. The company doesn't say that Experience Update 8.0.1 will fix the 4K streaming issues entirely; it says that the update is "a big step towards resolving 4K streaming issues." NVIDIA confirmed the issues with 4K playback last month. NVIDIA does say that it expects that most apps will resume 4K soon via coming server-side updates. Addressing apps that aren't streaming in 4K as they should isn't all the update is tackling. It also redesigns the volume UI for Android P. The update resolves occasional video playback issues,... Read more...
Today at TwitchCon, NVIDIA announced some interesting new tech that can be quite beneficial to the livestreaming community. The company has been leveraging the RT and Tensor cores in its current generation of Turing-based GeForce RTX graphics cards to enable features like real-time ray tracing, but that same hardware will be used to power the company’s new RTX Broadcast Engine. The RTX Broadcast Engine will leverage the onboard Tensor cores to enable a wide variety of effects in real-time including style filters, augmented reality, and greenscreens. In the case of RTX Greenscreen, NVIDIA is using artificial intelligence to scrub the background in the livestream, leaving just your face and... Read more...
The list of graphics cards based on NVIDIA's newest generation Turing GPU architecture has been growing, first with the expansion into GTX territory, then with the release of faster Super models to its GeForce RTX series. As it pertains to the latter, there have been rumors of NVIDIA refreshing its GeForce GTX series with Super models as well. ASUS may have confirmed that to be the case. Before we get to the rumor, let's have a look at the current Turing stack in the consumer sector (linked to our reviews of each model)... GeForce RTX 2080 Ti GeForce RTX 2080 Super GeForce RTX 2080 GeForce RTX 2070 Super GeForce RTX 2070 GeForce RTX 2060 Super GeForce RTX 2060 GeForce GTX 1660 Ti GeForce GTX... Read more...

LG's 2019 line of high-end OLED televisions is gaining NVIDIA G-SYNC support, which should make for some incredibly immersive gaming experiences. According to LG, its C9 and E9 TVs have been fully certified by NVIDIA to support G-SYNC, which would mark a first in the TV market. There is no dedicated hardware in the TVs, but NVIDIA's certification process ensures that G-SYNC is supported at up to 120Hz and 1440p resolutions (with 6ms input lag). If you're running 4K content, G-SYNC is locked in at 60 fps (with 13ms input lag). If that wasn't enough, the TVs all support HDR10, Dolby Vision (at 120fps) and HDMI 2.1. Audio formats supported include Dolby TrueHD and Dolby Atmos along with AI algorithms... Read more...
Back in late July, NVIDIA updated its SHIELD TV 4K streaming box to SHIELD Experience Upgrade 8.0, which was based on Android 9 Pie. The update also brought some new features along with a few bugfixes. However, what many SHIELD TV owners weren’t expecting were issues with existing 4K video playback.  NVIDIA has now acknowledged that a handful of apps have suddenly stopped playing back content at 4K resolutions. In a post to the official NVIDIA support forums, a staffer wrote: We’re aware of a 4K playback issue impacting a small number of apps on SHIELD TV devices and are working on a solution. In most of these cases, users can cast these movies to SHIELD in 4K using built-in... Read more...
It appears that we haven't heard the last of NVIDIA's "Super" refreshes for its Turing-based GeForce graphics cards. Earlier this summer, we witnessed the launch of the GeForce RTX 2060 Super, GeForce RTX 2070 Super and the GeForce RTX 2080 Super. Now there's a rumor making the rounds that NVIDIA is looking to spread some Super lovin' to its Turing GeForce GTX cards. This latest rumor comes from MyDrivers, which suggests that NVIDIA is working to deliver a GeForce GTX 1660 Super, which would slot in between the existing GeForce GTX 1660 (TU116-300) and GeForce 1660 Ti (TU116-400). It's reported that the GeForce GTX 1660 Super will use a vision of the TU116-300 die, with the... Read more...
NVIDIA announced the first round of RTX Studio certified laptops back in late May, and they came loaded with GeForce RTX or Quadro RTX GPUs, dedicated graphics drivers and other specialized software. In late July, NVIDIA announced that 10 new RTX Studio laptops had been added to the mix, bringing the total number available to 27. Today, ASUS is announcing the most powerful RTX Studio notebook to date in the form of the ProArt StudioBook One. It is the flagship of ASUS' laptop family aimed at creative professional and features a 15.6-inch display with a 120Hz 4K UHD (3840x2160) display with an 84 percent screen-to-body ratio.

UL Benchmarks (formerly known as Futuremark) has added a new Variable Rate Shading (VRS) test to its popular 3DMark benchmarking suite, and it is now available to the public. The new test taps into a feature of Microsoft's DirectX 12 API that allows developers to improve performance by selectively reducing the level of detail in parts of a frame. The idea behind VRS is to lessen the workload on a GPU and push higher framerates, without adversely affecting the overall image quality of a scene as it is perceived by the viewer. In theory, the selective reduction of detail in any given frame will occur where it will not be noticed much, if at all. "By using VRS to lower the shading rate for parts... Read more...
Finnish game studio Remedy Entertainment makes some of the finest-looking, quirkiest games around. Perhaps best known for the Max Payne series (but not Max Payne 3, which was developed solely by Rockstar), Remedy has been publishing its games exclusively on Xbox and PC for the last several years. The studio has delivered interesting, story-driven games more recently in the form of cult survival classic Alan Wake and the more recent sci-fi thriller Quantum Break. Both games featured cutting-edge graphics for their respective times. For that reason, maybe it's no surprise that the studio's latest creation, Control, uses the most cutting-edge graphics technology available today, including... Read more...
The battle royale genre has exploded in popularity over the last couple of years with titles like Fortnite and PUBG leading the way. Needless to say, many developers are looking to get in on the battle royale free-for-all, and the latest is Tencent Next Studios with the announcement of Synced: Off-Planet. Synced: Off-Planet puts a new spin on the genre with gameplay that seems to combine inspiration from other fictional works like World War Z and Left for Dead. You compete in a team of three; with two other human players serving beside you. Faced against you will be 45 other human opponents... and around 1,500 AI zombies (called Nanos) in a fight for survival. Having 48 humans (16 teams of 3)... Read more...
NVIDIA is promising a big performance improvement along with new features in its new Gamescom Game Ready Driver, which was released this morning. Probably the most exciting benefit for gamers comes in the performance uplift, which specifically targets Apex Legends, Battlefield V, Forza Horizon 4, Strange Brigade, and World War Z. NVIDIA says that its driver optimizations allow for a performance boost of up to 23 percent in the aforementioned titles compared to previous Game Ready Driver releases. Apex Legends sees the most significant increase at 1080p resolution on the GeForce RTX 2080 Super (the quoted 23 percent uplift), while the GeForce RTX 2060 Super sees a nearly 20 percent uplift at 1440p...
