A Mac just works as soon as you flick the power switch right? Apparently, this does not apply if you happen to be a user of a 2010-model Macbook Pro which features an NVIDIA graphics card and have recently made the switch to OS X Lion on such a machine. This is because we have
EVGA has released three new motherboards based on the Intel Z68 Express chipset, namely the Z68 FTW, Z68 SLI and Z68 SLI Micro. The flagship Z68 FTW features processor socket pins with higher gold content, a 12-phase power design, NVIDIA NF200, voltage read points, multiple BIOS backup and more.
Based on the CUDA™ architecture codenamed “Fermi”, the Tesla™ M-class GPU Computing Modules are the world’s fastest parallel computing processors for high performance computing (HPC). Tesla GPU’s high performance makes them ideal for seismic processing, biochemistry simulations, weather and climate modeling, signal processing, computational finance, CAE, CFD, and data analystics. The Tesla 20-series GPU computing
After an eternity at 40nm, thanks to 32nm cancelation and 28nm delays, the GPU industry is finally transitioning to TSMC's long, long awaited 28nm HKMG process. Fudzilla reports that NVIDIA's next-gen GPU, based on the Kepler architecture, has already been taped out. On the AMD side of things, we have heard reports of Southern Islands tape-out
One month after the introduction of the GeForce GTX 560M, NVIDIA now launches the new king, GTX 580M. It even showcases some of the benchmarks done in GTX 580M SLI. More details inside.
The NVIDIA GeForce GT 545, originally an OEM card, has hit the retail market thanks to EVGA. The EVGA GeForce GT 545 is based on the GF116 GPU and has been paired with 1.5GB of GDDR3 memory running on a 192-bit bus. 2-way NVIDIA SLI is supported and the card does not require additional power.
Gaming laptops like the recently-reviewed Dell Alienware M14x notebook may boast impressive hardware and specifications that will make any performance freak drool in envy, and for good reason. However, the average consumer will be more inclined to opt for a more portable notebook PC that is 'good enough' to handle typical, non-gaming tasks and more
At Computex today, Nvidia showed off several tech demos and games on the upcoming successor to Tegra 2. Pictures of Lost Planet 2 and a Unigine Heaven-like demo after the break.
Well, well, well, it seems like the race to provide the hardware needed to take tablets and smartphone processing today has just got a little more heated. Apparently not satisfied with the success of the Tegra 2 System-on-a-chip, NVIDIA decided to up the ante by demonstrating the power of its upcoming Tegra 3 SoC at
Great news for laptop users. NVIDIA has just launched the GeForce GTX 560M mobile graphics card to cope with the current generation of DirectX 11 games. Read on.
Subtract 48 stream processors from the GeForce GTX 560 Ti, and you get – no prizes for guessing – the GTX 560. We find out if the green team's latest card can stand up to the competition from AMD.
Nvidia and Novatte jointly organised the GPU Technology Conference (GTC) Workshop 2011 on 12 May at Biopolis, Singapore. The GTC workshop brings together researchers, developers and GPU computing experts for knowledge sharing and exchange of ideas. VR-Zone reports.
NVIDIA has released a new beta GeForce driver. Version 275.27 adds support for the newly released GeForce GTX 560, improved display scaling and Nvidia Update.
VR-Zone takes a sneak peek at a GTX 560 from Gainward's Phantom series… not to mention some overclocking.
If for some reason you don't quite like AMD and its Fusion APU, how about this dual-core hyper-threaded Intel Atom solution with NVIDIA ION graphics onboard? We pit the ASUS AT5IONT-I against the E35M1-I DELUXE for some Mini-ITX action!
Remember the horror of GeForce GTX 590 going up in smoke while benching? Well, apparently NVIDIA has found a way to solve this issue completely without doing a quick fix through the drivers. The solution : a much needed hardware fix where the new inductors are added to the card. However, the new inductors are larger
NVIDIA's Tegra system-on-a-chips (SoCs) may have only just started to see the light of the day in consumer devices such as smartphones and tablets, but it would appear that more OEMs are now turning to the graphics semiconductor giant for their chip supply due to Tegra's impressive performance. And apparently, ASUS is not about to
Despite a 5% decline in overall PC shipments in Q1 2011, the GPU industry saw a healthy 10.3% boost in Q1 2011. Intel gained more ground, aided by Sandy Bridge, with a market share of 54.4%. AMD came in second at 24.8% while NVIDIA saw a sharp drop in market share to 20.0%. In addition,
The GeForce GTX 560 we first heard about 4 weeks ago, is now rumoured to release on May 17th. Not to be confused with the GTX 560 Ti, the GTX 560 will be a direct replacement to the GTX 460. The specifications are expected to be remarkably similar to the outgoing GTX 460 1GB –
NVIDIA plans to launch their Desktop Optimus a.k.a Synergy at COMPUTEX Taipei this coming June and the best thing is that it is available freely and no license agreement is needed. This technology works pretty much similar to LucidLogix's Virtu where it allows dynamic swapping between iGPU and dGPU based on the application's nature and
