NVIDIA today announced the availablity of its beta video card drivers which sees the version number change from 310.54 to 310.64 beta and said the update is aimed at improving the framerates by up to 38%.
The United States has sealed its claim to the top spot for supercomputing thanks to its latest rig built by Cray at the Orak Ridge National Laboratory, utilising AMD processors and Nvidia graphics cards to make it the fastest and most powerful computational machine in the world.
AMD is finally becoming more aggressive in their bid to win the lucrative HPC share, which is set to explode with this week's SC'12 supercomputing conference in Salt Lake City, Utah.
According to recent reports from China Telecom, CoolPad's latest flagship 4.7-inch Android smartphone, the HD 9960, will go on sale later this month. The biggest surprise, however, is that the phone will come with a Nvidia penta-core chip inside.
The new tablet wars are getting more and more interesting, but benchmarking performance is getting to be quite difficult thanks to draconian application side loading restrictions. To resolve this, Futuremark has released some performance figures derived from their Peacekeeper browser based benchmark on three hot tablets for the 2012 Holiday Season.
Intel's Xeon Phi, even before the official announcement in the next few weeks, already has an impressive site in Texas. Should Nvidia be worried about the newcomer?
There's a lot of flak that both AMD and Intel are receiving on the mobile side of things. The investors want to see them go into the mobile market and earn $5-10 per chip instead of $30-X,XXX, but that’s just how the world works.
Recently, a new controversy appeared in the high emotional world of performance graphics cards. EVGA has just announced that they will no longer support EVBot overvoltage tool for their highest end cards. We dug up and found the reason why – to meet the Green Light program. We investigate the origins of the program and
Nvidia is preparing to unveil its highest end Kepler at the SC'12, but a lot of details were hidden from the public… until now. Thanks to CADnetworks' premature specifications, we learned everything that was missing.
There's no doubt that GPGPU or GPU Computing is becoming a big business. After speaking with sources close to the company, we learned that NVIDIA scored a great deal with Amazon for its Amazon Web Services (AWS).
GlobalFoundries delivered a 1-2 punch today, announcing the 14nm process for 2014. The semiconductor maker plans to manufacture chips in 14nm node named "eXtreme Mobility", offering FinFET three-dimensional transistors and Fully Depleted SOI to boot.
Recently we witnessed an alleged leak for the first member of the Sea Islands Family, which is scheduled to appear in the first quarter of 2013. We dug deeper and discovered codenames for GPUs coming in the next couple of years.
This is the world's most powerful and customizable 11.6 inch notebook, period. And oh, its pretty affordable so you don't have to take a mortgage on your house too.
Couple of weeks ago at the Siggraph 2012 conference held in Los Angeles, both AMD and NVIDIA introduced the next generation of its professional graphics cards based on 2012 graphics processors. Both companies picked up different approach, hoping to yield the best results. In this article, we explain what you can expect on the workstation
Airbus is slowly but certainly bringing the next generation aircraft to the skies. The A350 XWB flying prototype (MSN1) recently received its glass cockpit i.e. next-gen controls. The systems were fired on for the first time couple of days ago, with more information about the history slowly coming out.
These things that you cant really play… We test the effects of resolution scaling, graphical detail, computationally heavy GPGPU tests and do some power/price analysis at the end.
The way its meant to be played… or gaming evolved? We run through the performance of the different game engines behind some of the popular titles today to see the effects of memory bandwidth and clock speed scaling on contemporary GPUs from AMD and Nvidia.
Nvidia's Kepler, although arriving much later to the 28nm game, has proven itself to be a credible competitor to the Southern Islands offerings of AMD, excelling in mainstream gaming performance and energy efficiencies. What happens if you take the already cut-down 7 SMX units in the GK104 die of GTX 670 and further curtail its
At the first day of Siggraph 2012, which is taking place at the Los Angeles Convention Center, Khronos group announced the new iterations of OpenGL API for conventional computers and consoles (OpenGL), as well as mobile devices (OpenGL ES).
Fuzhou Rockchip Electronics Company (or simply Rockchip) is mostly known for its low-power silicon which powers numerous entry-level tablets, smartphones, digital frames, personal media players etc. The company recently unveiled its high-performing chips, the RK 3000 Series.
