NVIDIA’s biggest announcement at CES 2011 was undoubtedly Project Denver – NVIDIA’s own “Fusion” product. Tegra General Manager, Mike Rayfield, has revealed that NVIDIA’s Maxwell generation of GPUs will be used for the first end-product for Project Denver, in an interview with Hexus. Project Denver will also fuse an “extremely high performance ARM CPU”, presumably
MSI has launched two new N500GTX series graphics cards featuring their award-winning Twin Frozr II design, the N580GTX Twin Frozr II and the N570GTX Twin Frozr II. The Twin Frozr II cooler is able to reduce operating temperatures and noise levels by up to 20°C and 8.4dB respectively compared to other solutions.
NVIDIA’s follow-up to the GeForce GTX 460 on January 25th is a very poorly kept secret. However, TechPowerUp has uncovered an interesting twist to the branding of GF114. Logically, the card was expected to be branded GeForce GTX 560. However, the leaked driver, Geforce 266.44, mentions “GeForce GTX 560 Ti”.
The news is in. The Nvidia GeForce GTX560 will be launched on the 25th of January, and will feature a clock speed of 820MHz.
NVIDIA Technology has announced that it will receive US$1.5 billion in licensing fees from Intel as part of a new patent cross-licensing agreement, which will span over a total of six years. Both companies have also come to the agreement to drop all legal disputes between them.
Ever before the release of GF100, a dual-GF100 product had been rumoured. The outrageous power consumption figures of the original GF100 meant a dual-GPU GF100 was unlikely, yet the rumour persisted, fueled by Galaxy and Mars exhibiting prototypes with exotic power solutions. However, no dual-GF100 made it to the market. Following the successful GF104 launch,
At the CES 2011, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer gave a keynote speech and said that power efficient chips incorporated in smartphones, tablets and laptops were the way to go. Nvidia’s Tegra 2 chips, running on Dual-Core ARM Cortex-A9 CPUs each clocked at 1Ghz, were chosen to run early prototypes of Windows. Microsoft Windows which is
NVIDIA has announced its response to much of AMD’s Radeon HD 6000M series, in the form of “new” GeForce 500M notebook GPUs. The GeForce 400M has been around for barely a quarter, so no major improvements are expected. In fact, the first GeForce 500M cards are based on the same GF106/8 chips powering the GeForce
With the “Fusion” era beginning early 2011, accompanied by the release of Intel’s Sandy Bridge and AMD’s Fusion C-series and E-series, NVIDIA’s response has been anticipated. Both Intel and AMD are moving towards heterogeneous chips, combining CPU and GPU on the same die. Judging by NVIDIA’s partnership with ARM for Tegra, and CEO Jen-Hsun Huang’s
NVIDIA has announced a new Web community, 3DVisionLive.com dedicated exclusively to 3D content, enabling users to enjoy breathtaking, stereoscopic 3D videos and photos while using a 3D-enabled PC or notebook.
What do you do if you have a pile of AMD Radeon HD 6970 and HD 6950, and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580 and GTX 570 graphics cards? In this review / shootout, VR-Zone.com tests multi-GPU CrossFire and SLI scaling performance of the latest graphics cards on Intel’s new Core i7-2600K CPU and the ASUS Maximus
The release of NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 560 is no secret, neither is the fact that it is a polished and unlocked GF104. The GF114 chip, fully unlocked for GTX 560, features 8 SMs with 8 PolyMorph engines and 384 SP. It will retain the 256-bit memory interface from GTX 460 1 GB, with a slightly
With a stylish and eye-catching design, and a cooler with six heat pipes and triple 80mm fans that promises low temperatures and low noise levels, Gainward’s new GeForce GTX 570 Phantom is arguably one of the most attractive non-reference cards out there in the market. The card was officially announced earlier today; more details after
It appears that Gainward is not contented with having just one custom-built NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570 card. The graphics card maker is now planning to release another non-reference product, the GeForce GTX 570 Phantom.
Unlike most mobile phone makers that incorporate ARM Cortex A8 processor to their latest phones, LG has gone with Nvidia Tegra 2 for their new Optimus 2X Android smartphone. The Optimus 2X also claims to be the world’s first smartphone (and fastest) with dual-core processor. Update: The LG Optimus 2X will be available in Singapore in Q1 next year.
Say what? A Chinese OEM is making their products available outside of China? That should be great for us all, right? After all, OEMs typically offer a greater variety of hardware in other countries, and this is apparently the case with JEHE’s N20 nettop, which sports some rather decent hardware under its small casing.
NVIDIA today announced that NVIDIA® SLI® technology has been licensed by the world’s leading motherboard manufacturers – including Intel, ASUS, GIGABYTE, MSI and EVGA – for use on their Intel P67 Express motherboards designed for the upcoming Intel® Sandy Bridge processors.
In our NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570 review, we feature Gainward’s custom-designed GeForce GTX 570 Golden Sample ‘Goes Like Hell’ (GS GLH) Edition card. VR-Zone.com takes a look at where the GTX 570 (overclocked or not) stands against previous-generation products, and the current GTX 580 flagship.
Yoyotech, a UK e-tailer, has jumped the gun by listing NVIDIA’s upcoming GeForce GTX 570 a few days before release. The price listed is £299 inc. VAT (£255 ex. VAT) and much of the previously rumoured details are confirmed. In terms of performance, Yoyotech expects the GTX 570 to “match the GTX480 while running on
At just 19mm thick, engineers still managed to squeeze in a standard-voltage Intel mobile processor and discrete NVIDIA graphics into the new ASUS U36 ultra-portable laptop. Despite having a fast Intel Core i3 or Core i5 processor onboard, the U36 can deliver up to 10 hours on a single charge thanks to Super Hybrid Engine
