The supercomputing conference SC13 kicks off this week, which means we'll be seeing a great deal of information related to multiple initiatives and launches from all the major players in High Performance Computing (HPC). Nvidia is kicking off their own event with the launch of a new GPU and a strategic partnership with IBM. For those of you that follow the consumer market, the GPU is going to look fairly familiar. K40 -- GK110 Goes Full Fat Just as the GTX 780 Ti was the full consumer implementation of the GK110 GPU, the new K40 Tesla card is the supercomputing / HPC variant of the same core architecture. The K40 picks up additional clock headroom and implements the same variable clock speed... Read more...
Apple seems fairly content letting everyone else battle it out for the under-$200 tablet market share crown, and if you haven't noticed, the war that's waging down there is getting pretty intense. Google's heralded Nexus 7 has a bit of like-minded competition today courtesy of the Tegra Note. Designed by EVGA, the Tegra Note 7 packs NVIDIA's 1.8GHz Tegra 4, a stylus, a built-in 5MP rear camera, 1GB of DDR3L-1600 memory, a 7" HD IPS display (1280x800), and a VGA front-facing webcam. There's also 16GB of storage, a microSD expansion slot, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 LE, GPS + GLONASS, an ambient light sensor, HDMI output, USB 2.0, 3.5mm headphone jack, and a 4100mAh battery that's supposedly...

While out at AMD’s tech days in Hawaii, a number of folks were chit-chatting about recent developments and some of our peers felt compelled to mention how “terrified” NVIDIA was of AMD Hawaii GPU, that AMD caught NVIDIA off guard, and that they wouldn’t have any real answer until well into 2014. We sat back and listened to all the chatter and wondered how these things could be said with such conviction. Quite frankly, it just didn’t make any sense to us. NVIDIA’s had the GK110 GPU that powers the GeForce GTX Titan, 780, and now the 780 Ti done for ages, and prior to today, the GPU’s full capabilities hadn’t been available on a consumer GPU. Remember,... Read more...

NVIDIA isn't the only one excited about its GRID cloud gaming technology. So is Sprint, which tapped into NVIDIA's GRID to demonstrate Borderlands 2 being streamed over the carrier's next-generation Sprint Spark wireless network to a MiFi mobile hotspot at the Innovation Center in Burlingame, California. "For smooth gaming – especially when you’re playing a game on a remote server – you want one with low latency. That’s tough to deliver over wired networks," Sprint CTO and senior vice president Stephen Bye explained in a blog post. "So we figured streaming games would be the perfect way to illustrate not just the speed – but the low latency delivered by our next-generation... Read more...
It's not too often that we advocate playing the waiting game -- something newer, bigger, faster, shinier, etc. is always around the corner -- but if you're contemplating a graphics card upgrade, this is one of the rare times where it makes sense to wait just a little bit. Why is that? On November 7th, NVIDIA will release its GeForce GTX 780 Ti to retail, and in preparation for the new card, the GPU maker is rolling out some big time price cuts for its existing GTX 780 and 770 parts ahead of time. With the GeForce GTX 780 Ti joining the lineup, NVIDIA says the new suggested e-tail price for the non-Ti model will be $499. The GeForce GTX 780 sells today for around $650 and up, and by dropping the... Read more...
Microsoft's Surface 2 became available for purchase at retail earlier this week and we've had an eval unit in-hand for testing since the day before launch. Powered by NVIDIA's new quad-core Tegra 4 SoC, and driven by Windows 8.1 RT, the Surface 2 offers stiff competition to the recently announced iPad Air. From a total package perspective, Microsoft throws in a 200GB of SkyDrive cloud storage, free Skype landline calling for 2 years and 1 year of all you can eat Skype WiFi at available hot spots. So you get all that, for $150 less (comparable 32GB Surface 2 pricing at $449) than an iPad Air at $599. The new iPad has its super high res Retina display (and a 64-bit A7 processor), which no doubt... Read more...
NVIDIA recently made a flurry of announcements, among them the introduction of a new graphics card, the GeForce GTX 780 Ti. The GPU maker said the card would show up in retail sometime in November, though the company opted to keep its lips sealed in regards to the card's specifications, leaving us to speculate as to what's underneath the hood. In this day and age of the Internet, however, it's incredibly difficult to keep a secret, especially one that involves a product that's just weeks away from being on store shelves. That said, a Chinese language website posted what it claims are official specs for the GeForce GTX 780 Ti part. If accurate, the GeForce GTX 780 Ti will enter the scene with... Read more...
Day two of NVIDIA’s tech event began with a keynote from CEO Jen-Hsun Huang about NVIDIA’s commitment to gaming and bringing high-quality gaming technology to all platforms, specifically referencing the PC, Android and cloud gaming. He also re-iterated yesterday’s announcements regarding PhysX Flex, GI Works, and Flame Works, which you can read about right here. Jen-Hsun said NVIDIA’s ultimate goal with all of the tech and tools it has created is to be for gaming, what ILM is like to movie industry. Interesting. Jen Hsun then begun talking about a new feature coming to SHIELD in an OTA update dubbed GameStream. He said his ultimate vision is to allow users to enjoy their... Read more...
With the release of VMware View 5.3 vDGA, VMware is deploying NVIDIA’s GRID rendering technology which allows better virtualization of graphically intensive applications in an enterprise environment. We’ve seen NVIDIA demo this technology before, and although it can certainly be used for cloud gaming, GRID offers a server package that can substitute for desktop-side workstation-level graphics. NVIDIA GRID demo “NVIDIA GRID GPU Pass-Through technology makes this possible by allowing a virtual machine running VMware View 5.3 on top of the VMware ESX hypervisor to talk directly to a dedicated GRID GPU,” wrote NVIDIA’s Justin Boitano in a blog post. GRID is intriguing... Read more...
You’re going to want a 4K monitor for this: NVIDIA is shouldering its way further into the gaming PC market with its Battlebox program in which it partners with boutique system builders to develop scorchingly powerful gaming systems. The Battlebox systems are built to play all the newest blockbuster games at high resolutions and with all the settings jacked to the proverbial 11. NVIDIA’s graphics cards will be front and center, of course, and all the systems will feature GeForce GTX 780 or Titan cards 2- or 3-way SLI configurations. NVIDIA’s numerous graphics technologies are there, including PhysX, DX11 tessellation, HBAO+ ambient occlusion, TXAA anti-aliasing, Bokeh, depth... Read more...
Given that Halloween is upon us, it seems quite fitting that Dead of Arrival 2 has landed on a platform that could be very near and dear to your heart. And your limbs, for that matter. DoA has become something of an icon in the PC gaming world, and as the universe shifts and mobile gaming platforms become more crucial, the game's second iteration has been ported to Google Play. In other words, those with an Android phone or slate can hop over to the Play store right now and install the game. It'll work on some older devices, but it's clearly built for the latest and greatest, including NVIDIA's Tegra 4. Also, if you're a lucky owner of an NVIDIA Shield, you'll be delighted to know that DoA 2... Read more...
Let's stop harping on it. We've already discussed Microsoft's failures and shortcomings with their first generation of Surface and Surface RT devices. The company's $900 million dollar mistake has been bounced around along with Steve Ballmer's tenure ad nauseam and so it's probably no surprise that more than a few pundits and analysts are sounding off so negatively regarding Microsoft's recent Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 unveiling earlier this week.  They're too big, too expensive, not retina, too "Windows RT," whatever.  What is it about Microsoft that seemingly draws such a critical eye these days, especially when it comes to mobile? Let's all take a deep breath and analyze the Microsoft... Read more...
