06/04/2013, NVIDIA has shown off a new technology for Tegra 4 tablets it calls 'DirectStylus.' It allows users to use a fine-tip passive stylus to draw lines of different width on a tablet's screen.
05/30/2013, Just ahead of Computex, E3 and Intel’s launch of its 4th generation of processors, NVIDIA has announced its GTX 700M family of graphics processors (GPUs) for laptops. This is a performance-oriented refresh that hits on nearly all important elements: core frequency, number of sub-processors memory and sometime, memory bandwidth. Individually, each element has been improved by 10%-20% but combined, they could represent an aggregate performance boost of 25% to %30 […]
05/30/2013, The NVIDIA Shield console has turned up at the FCC for approval. This is a good indication of the release likely being on time.
05/24/2013, NVIDIA Has introduced its new high-end consumer graphics card, and it’s a monster. In fact, the new GeForce GTX 780 is very close to the company’s “professional” top of the line GeForce Titan, a Monolithic single-GPU card that contains 2688 stream processors that work on pixels in parallel. The GTX 780 has a slightly more modest count of 2304 such processors, but if you compare that to the previous GTX […]
05/23/2013, The Hisense Sero 7 Pro is a 7-inch tablet that can compete effectively against the Google Nexus 7 in terms of specs and price/storage ratio.
05/21/2013, At CTIA 2013, NVIDIA is demonstrating its 4G LTE modem capability of the Tegra 4i processor with integrated modem and the i500 stand-alone modem. You may recall that NVIDIA did a similar demonstration at Mobile World Congress when they showed a CAT3 100Mbps LTE link , but this time, the chip-maker has pushed the envelope by connecting their modems to a CAT4 150Mbps LTE link.
05/17/2013, Earlier this week, NVIDIA announced the pre-order timeframe of its SHIELD Android mobile game console powered by Tegra 4, and that was supposed to be next Monday for retail partners like Newegg, GameStop, Micro Center and Canada Computers. Good news: the retail partners have decided to move the pre-order to… now. This was confirmed this morning by Jason Paul who manages SHIELD at NVIDIA. It’s not clear why this happened, […]
05/14/2013, NVIDIA has just announced that its Project SHIELD game console will officially be called NVIDIA Shield. That’s not a total surprise, but for those who liked the name will be glad to know that it will stay. More importantly, the company has finally revealed the price for this console: $349. Those who have signed up for the notification on shield.nvidia.com will be able to pre-order right away and everybody else […]
04/19/2013, Earlier this year during CES 2013, NVIDIA took to the stage to announce their next-gen SoC, the Tegra 4. A couple of manufacturers have since announced their plans to ship Tegra 4 devices, with ZTE being one of them. Thanks to the folks at GSM Insider, they have managed to get their hands on a photo of what is allegedly the ZTE N988, possibly the world’s first smartphone to feature […]
04/04/2013, While a good majority of gaming rigs then to be on the big, and borderline monstrous side, there are gamers who prefer a rig with a smaller footprint and choose to go for mini-ITX builds. If a mini-ITX build is something you’re interested in, it seems that the folks at ASUS might have a GPU that is right up your alley in the form of the GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU […]
03/19/2013, NVIDIA’s CEO Jen-Hsun Huang’s talked to industry analysts today, and talked about various growth avenue, and he mentioned that NVIDIA was “open to licensing” its technology to companies that are heavily vertically integrated. Of course, two names pop immediately: Apple and Samsung, and this wouldn’t be very hard to see this as a message to those players, who both have their own processors. “We do it all the time” says […]
03/19/2013, Earlier today, we saw NVIDIA present Volta, it’s next-generation GPU architecture that is designed to increase performance by addressing one of the “eternal” problems linked to GPUs more than any other processor type: memory bandwidth. Volta is going to use RAM that is layered on top of the GPU silicon to reduce energy consumption and latency during memory accesses. With this, NVIDIA says that it will be able to push […]
03/19/2013, At GTC 2013, NVIDIA has demonstrated their version of Image Search, which was powered by their massively parallel processors. The goal of computer vision is to be able to recognize and understand what things are – not merely “seeing” them. This is a very intricate problem since computers are fast but fairly dumb (out of the box). They have no notion of “concepts”, unlike humans who can be shown one […]
03/19/2013, NVIDIA has revealed a little more of its roadmap today. Off the initial roadmap that was shown to us at Mobile World Congress 2011, there NVIDIA has revealed what Logan is about, and has added a new chip codenamed Parker to the roadmap. Before we talk about Parker, NVIDIA has reminded us that Logan is using a Kepler GPU, which means that this is the first time that NVIDIA says […]
