Is there anything that artificial intelligence does not do these days? Sure there is, but the list is growing smaller by the day. In case you were wondering, AI even has dance moves that it came with by itself. That's right, through the power of deep learning, researchers at NVIDIA collaborated with the University of California, Merced, to develop a deep learning-based model that can automatically compose new dance moves. "This is a challenging but interesting generative task with the potential to assist and expand content creations in arts and sports, such as a theatrical performance, rhythmic gymnastics, and figure skating," NVIDIA stated in a paper on the subject. The team collected dance... Read more...
Researchers at NVIDIA have come up with a clever machine learning technique for taking 2D images and fleshing them out into 3D models. Normally this happens in reverse—these days, it's not all that difficult to take a 3D model and flatten it into a 2D image. But to create a 3D model without feeding a system 3D data is far more challenging. "In traditional computer graphics, a pipeline renders a 3D model to a 2D screen. But there’s information to be gained from doing the opposite—a model that could infer a 3D object from a 2D image would be able to perform better object tracking, for example.," NVIDIA explains. What the researchers came up with is a rendering framework called... Read more...

Real-time ray-traced graphics are even shown on displays like security monitors to make the whole experience more immersive. ... Read more...
NVIDIA has updated its compute accelerator stack with another Tesla product, the Tesla V100s. It is based on the same 12-nanometer GV100 (Volta) GPU as the rest of the Tesla V100 lineup, but comes standard with 32GB of second-generation high bandwidth memory (HBM2) and sports a faster boost clock, which together yield more overall performance. The Tesla V100s is essentially an extension of the Tesla V100. Since the the GPU underneath is unchanged, we are still looking at 5,120 CUDA cores. Performance is higher, though, due to the boost clock being jacked up to around 1,601MHz, up from 1,367MHz on the regular Tesla V100, according to Videocardz. Here's a breakdown of what that translates into...... Read more...
Unlike a few years ago, GPU makers are not really pushing the use of multiple graphics cards, at least not as heavily as they once were. Even so, NVIDIA has not abandoned the technology. Incidentally, recent driver releases seem to support a checkerboard rendering scheme that can improve performance on SLI setups. This is not a brand new technique. The developers of Rainbow Six Siege used it as a form of anti-aliasing. In addition, Sony added hardware to the PlayStation 4 Pro to support checkerboard rendering. And if you go all the way back to 1993, Doom used a similar technique in the low detail mode. As for NVIDIA, 3DCenter forum member Blaire wrote up a post on his discovery of a checkerboard...

When NVIDIA's GeForce RTX graphics cards first launched, there weren't many games on the market that could take advantage of Turing's new bells and whistles. Over time that's changed, however, and some of this year's biggest hits—titles like Control and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare—can take full advantage of stunning ray-traced visual effects. NVIDIA's high-end Turing cards include some of the fastest GPUs around with equally eye-watering pricing, but it doesn't have to be that way if you want to take a more modest approach. The $299 - $329 GeForce RTX 2060 6 GB and $499 GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER are more than capable in their own right without breaking the bank. We wanted to check... Read more...
Well, what do we have here? A fresh rumor making the rounds suggests NVIDIA is preparing to add a GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Super model to its graphics card lineup, which would make its top consumer Turing card even faster. It might even be faster than the Titan X, at least in instances where the added memory does not come into play. I'll expand a bit on the comparison in a moment, but first, here is a refresher on the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti's specifications (reference model)... Cuda Cores: 4,352 Tensor Cores: 544 RT Cores: 68 Render Outputs: 88 Texture Units: 272 Boost Clock: 1,545MHz Base Clock: 1,350MHz Memory: 11GB GDDR6 Memory Speed: 14Gbps Memory Interface: 352-bit Memory Bandwidth: 616GB/s Even...

NVIDIA has already unleashed a "SUPER" refresh of its GeForce Turing family of desktop graphics processors across RTX and GTX product ranges. However, according to a new leak, NVIDIA is looking to extend the SUPER loving to its mobility GPUs in the opening months of 2020. AMD announced its Navi-based Radeon RX 5500M GPUs for notebooks back in early October, and it's expected that there will be RX 5700M and RX 5300M offerings flanking it. To counter the threat from AMD, NVIDIA's SUPER refresh on the mobility side is expected to keep it in the driver's seat with respect to performance. Inside information on this new GPU lineup comes from NotebookCheck, which indicates that there... Read more...
NVIDIA's latest generation Turing GPUs are built on a 12-nanometer manufacturing process, down from 16nm (TSMC) and 14nm (Samsung) parts cultivated for Pascal. Meanwhile, AMD is pumping out 7nm Navi GPUs. Wondering when NVIDIA might make the leap to 7nm as well? If a recent rumor is any indication, we could see graphics cards built around a 7nm Ampere GPU from NVIDIA next year. Manufacturing nodes are just one piece of the puzzle, though. As things currently stand, NVIDIA's latest GeForce cards are more capable than AMD's Radeon parts overall—NVIDIA's GeForce RTX series feature dedicated hardware for real-time ray tracing, and are generally faster at the top end in good old fashioned rasterized...

As far the reliability of leaks go, this latest one comes directly from AMD, by way of a Reddit post—forum user "juggies" posted a link to documents and marketing materials on AMD's Marketing Asset Resource System (MARS) for the Radeon RX 5500, and apparently AMD is positioning the card as a faster option than rival NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1650. Before we get to that, let's recap the specs. The Radeon RX 5500 is another graphics card with a Navi GPU underneath the hood. It has 22 compute units, up to a 1,670MHz game clock, and up to a 1,845MHz boost clock to deliver up to 5.2 TFLOPs. It also boasts 4GB of GDDR6 memory linked to a 128-bit bus, for 224GB/s of memory bandwidth (there will also... Read more...
NVIDIA is flexing its muscle once again when it comes to artificial intelligence (AI) inference workloads, and this time around, the company is claiming benchmark supremacy in MLPerf Inference 0.5. AI performance is becoming increasingly more important for usage scenarios like image recognition, voice recognition and autonomous vehicles (among other fields). To that end, NVIDIA says that the one-two punch of its Turing-based AI accelerators and the Xavier SoC allowed it to take top honors in all five of MLPerf's inference benchmarks. For its Turing offerings (with a focus on data centers), the Turing GPUs were able to top the charts in both server and offline scenarios on a "performance per processor"... Read more...
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...
