Semiconductor products are used on numerous scientific and military projects. However, this is the story we just had to share with you. NVIDIA Tegra 3 is heading where no contemporary semiconductor chip has gone before – to the Moon.
Yesterday we posted news about AMD hiring top talent with the focus on SOC (System-On-a-Chip) engineering team. We got an email from NVIDIA employee saying they're hiring too…
Japanese website 4Gamer has revealed a detailed roadmap for NVIDIA's upcoming 28nm Kepler GPU line-up for desktops. As previously rumoured, the Kepler roll out will indeed be bottom-to-top, starting with the mainstream GK107 chip in Q2 2012 to the high-end GK110/2 parts later in the year. All Kepler GPUs are manufacted at TSMC's 28nm, use
NVIDIA has reported financial results for their Q3 FY2012, for the period Aug 1st 2011 to Oct 31st 2011. Compared to the previous quarter, revenue increased by 5% to $1.07 billion, with net income up by 17% to $178.3 million. That is also more than double net income compared to Q3 FY2011.
NVIDIA is preparing to debut the GeForce 600 generation on 6th December, with mainstream mobile GeForce 600M GPUs. First in line will be GeForce 610M, GeForce GT 630M and GeForce GT 635M. If these names sound familiar, it is because they were leaked in a beta driver last month. However, these "new" chips are most
Last month, we first broke news of the GTX 560 Ti 448 Core. Sweclockers have now leaked detailed specifications for the upcoming GTX 560 Ti 448 Core. As revealed before, the GTX 560 448 is indeed a crippled GTX 570. However, surprisingly, it features identical clocks to the GTX 570, and reportedly a slightly higher
We've already seen a glimpse of the internals of the Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime and now it seems like benchmark numbers have leaked, in a very peculiar way. An Android benchmark called AnTuTu Benchmark got updated to version 2.4.2 and the company behind the benchmark has included numbers for the Transformer Prime for comparative
The FCC (Federal Communications Commission) had kindly posted pictures of the guts of Asus’ upcoming Transformer Prime tablet, since if you want to sell a device in the US; it has to pass through the stringent testing of the FCC. As such, we now know not only what Nvidia’s Tegra 3 chip for tablets look
Call them Processor Graphics, as Intel do, or Accelerated Processing Units (APU) as per AMD, chips combining GPUs and CPUs are starting to dominate overall graphics shipments. In Q3, as a result of Sandy Bridge's massive success, Intel's jumped to a 60% market share in graphics shipment. AMD held on to 23% which NVIDIA, left
There have been no shortage of code name / branding leaks for next-gen GPUs in the last few weeks. To add to the list, not surprisingly, GK104 is in the works. This chip will form the basis for N14E mobile Quadro GPUs. On the AMD side, the already reported Tahiti desktop GPU will also arrive
As we wait for next-gen 28nm GPUs, NVIDIA is preparing an upgrade for the popular GeForce GTX 560 Ti. Much like the GeForce GTX 260 was upgraded to GTX 260 (216 Core) in 2008, the GTX 560 Ti is set to be revised as GTX 560 Ti (448 Core). Despite the branding, the GTX
TSMC has announced that its much awaited 28nm process is in volume production and the first production wafers has already been shipped to customers. TSMC currently offers 28nm tech in three forms – 28nm High Performance (28HP), 28nm High Performance Low Power (28HPL) and 28nm Low Power (28LP). 28nm High Performance Mobile Computer (28HPM) is
If you don't succeed at first, try again seems to be Nvidia's motto behind its 3D Vision glasses, as the company has announced its second generation of 3D Vision glasses simply called 3D Vision 2. Then again, this is far from the second generation, as over the years we've seen several attempts from Nvidia where
In the latest unreleased 285 BETA drivers, the expected GeForce 600 branding has surfaced. The marketing names leaked are NVIDIA GeForce 610M and NVIDIA GeForce GT 630M. The GeForce 610M is likely to be an entry level GPU while the GeForce GT 630M could very well be a GK107 SKU.
NVIDIA has engineering samples out for its first chip based on the next-gen Kepler architecture. The chip is the same as revealed by SemiAccurate last week – GK107. As suggested by the nomenclature, this isn't the flagship GK100 we are all waiting for. Instead, NVIDIA is executing a bottom-to-top release, first releasing a smaller chip,
NVIDIA has just released their 285.38 BETA drivers, claiming up to 38% performance increases and other improvements for the Battlefield 3 Open Beta which will be available to privileged early access users in less than 23 hours' time.
In a blog post, Nvidia unveiled that its upcoming Tegra SoC currently codenamed Kal-El is not a quad core CPU but rather a quintuple core CPU. That said, the fifth core is quite different to the first four and it's apparently also patented.
In a talk with Fudzilla, NVIDIA's PR Representative Ken Brown revealed that next-gen 28nm Kepler is on track to hit production by the end of this year. However, the release of retail SKUs, will only be in 2012, presumably Q1. This roadmap is no surprise and has been rumoured even before Kepler taped out.
SemiAccurate have leaked a tentative line-up for NVIDIA's 28nm mobile GPUs. The first 28nm mobile GPUs are set to be sampled in Early October, with mass production commencing in End December if everything goes to plan. Availability is scheduled for Q1 2012. Crucially, these 28nm parts are not based on the next-gen Kepler architecture, but
Samsung and Nvidia have jointly announced the new member of the GALAXY line of smartphones, the Galaxy R. The Galaxy R sports a 4.19-inch touchscreen display, incorporates Nvidia Tegra 2 mobile dual-core processor and runs Google Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system.
