Turkish website DonanimHaber have got their hands on more information about Nvidia’s much anticipated (and much delayed) Geforce GTX 400 series. First off, the Geforce GTX 470 will end up 20-25% faster than the previous-generation Geforce GTX 285. That would put it somewhere between the Radeon HD 5850 and the Radeon HD 5870. Unfortunately, the
Keeping up with Nvidia’s new found tradition of frequent rebrands, Nvidia has released three new GT 300 (not to be confused with GT300) cards – the GT 320, GT 330 and GT 340. As you may expect, GT 340 is just the same as a GT 240 – except it is only available as a
It is official – Nvidia’s much anticipated Geforce GTX 480 is all set to be unveiled at PAX East 2010 on March 26th 2010, at 6PM local time (at Boston, MA). However, the choice of words makes it unclear as to what kind of an “unveiling” this really is. Given the GTX 480s numerous “launches”
SemiAccurate have got hold of a few performance figures for the Geforce GTX 480. Earlier rumours indicated at the GTX 480 being upto 60% faster than the HD 5870. However, SemiAccurate’s sources report that the GTX 480, on average, will end up being a mere 5% faster than the HD 5870 at higher resolutions, despite
Nvidia’s upcoming Geforce GTX 400 series was expected to release some time in March. However, Nvidia claims the GTX 400 series will be released in Q1 2011 – which runs till April 30th, 2010. Reporters suggest mass availability has been delayed till Nvidia’s Q2 FY2011, which runs from May 2010 to as late as 31st
Nvidia may be without a competitive Geforce product. However, surprisingly, that has not stopped Nvidia from recovering in Q4 of Nvidia’s 2010, which lasts from October 26th, 2009 to January 31st, 2010. An impressive revenue of $982 million almost doubled compared to the recession hit Q4 2009 (i.e. Oct 26th 2008 to Jan 25th 2009).
A marketing director for Santa Clara-based NVIDIA is facing a misdemeanor charge after he allegedly told a flight attendant at San Francisco International Airport that he had a bomb in his jacket, prosecutors said Monday. It is a wonder how NVIDIA managed to find an empty spot for someone as insensitive to the raised airport
The annual Mobile World Congress kicked off in Barcelona, Spain on 15th February with a huge turn out of mobile professionals who came from all over the world. The four-day event will see announcements from various companies including Google, Microsoft and Samsung.
Nvidia’s latest product, Optimus, may sound like something out of a sci-fi film. What it is though, is Hybrid SLI switching done right. In the past, both an IGP and discrete GPU were present in select notebooks, offering both a boost in performance, as well as the ability to power down the discrete GPU to
Selected Nvidia partners will unveil Nvidia’s next-generation GF100 based flagship, the Geforce GTX 480 at Cebit, which runs from March 2nd to March 6th. Official release is expected towards the end of March, though widespread availability might slip to April, assuming there are no more mishaps. More details next page.
The new ASUS laptops are going to be equipped with NVIDIA Optimus Technology that allows seamless transition between discrete and integrated graphics for enhanced viewing and longer battery life. The notebooks are scheduled to be available from March.
Update: Nvidia have now announced on their Twitter page that GF100 will be branded Geforce GTX 480 and Geforce GTX 470. Long rumoured to be codenamed GT300, with branding as the GTX 300 series, Expreview is now reporting that Nvidia has named GF100 as Geforce GTX 480 for the top model and GTX 470 for
TSMC’s Senior VP of Operations, Mark Liu, has mentioned that TSMC’s troubled 40nm process is now of the same quality as the mature 65nm process. The chamber mismatch issue which dropped the yields of the HD 5800 series to a reported 40% have now been resolved, and yields are recently rumoured to be between 60%
Fudzilla has reported the existence of a dual-GPU version of Nvidia’s upcoming GF100 in April, roughly one month after the single-GPU GF100 launch, if all goes well and A3 is the final stepping. However, is such a mammoth product, the dual-GF100, actually feasible? Earlier rumours pointed to a TDP of 180-200W for the single GPU
Much like the Radeon HD 4890 last generation, ATI is rumoured to be preparing a refresh for its Cypress GPU. Details are unavailable at this stage. Whether it will be a die shrink, increase in shader counts, or just clock speed optimizations (ala HD 4890) is unknown. The HD 5800 refresh should come in right
“7″ might not be the most oft-used number for naming products this side of the globe, but Gigabyte has chosen to use the “UD7″ moniker on it’s upcoming feature-packed mainboard. Today we landed our hands on a pre-production sample, so here we are with the photos.
There has been considerable speculation of yields for TSMC’s troubled 40nm process. From single-digit percentage yield rumours of early steppings of Fermi to under 40% for Cypress, there has been very little positive reports from TSMC’s process. TSMC themselves admitted yields hovering around 40% in November, due to “Chamber mismatch issues”. They promised to fix
In a curious report from TomsHardware, an Nvidia partner claims Nvidia’s next generation Fermi chips will go into production in the 3rd week of February, with limited quantities available in mid-March. It is not clear if this is the desktop (GF100) or the Tesla version of Fermi. The source goes onto say that 40nm TSMC
Fresh from Nvidia’s premiere of a GF100 working prototype, the dual-GPU variant of GF100 is now rumoured to be released some time in May 2010, at earliest. Not surprisingly, the dual-GPU, if it releases, will be a good one or two months after the single-GPU GF100 variants. However, the feasibility of such a product is
As expected, Nvidia have finally demonstrated a working Geforce based Fermi (GF100) card at CES 2010. Few details are available, but at least we know GF100 is up and running. PC Watch have captured a video of GF100 running Unigine’s DX11 benchmark. Visually, the GF100 prototype looks like any Geforce product – though there is
