03/05/2013, NVIDIA has been showing a lot of love to its mobile division lately as it continually rolls out a new Tegra chip every couple of years and is even preparing itself to dominate the mobile gaming world with its Project Shield. Fans of the company’s PC cards might feel a little left out in the NVIDIA love, but with today’s announcement, you can be sure the company hasn’t forgotten of its […]
02/24/2013, We had an opportunity to run the first Tegra 4 benchmarks out NVIDIA’s lab and it’s time for an update on that front. Since NVIDIA launched its Tegra 4 processor at CES, there was a sense that it should be really fast, but the question was: how fast? Today, we have the answer: it’s roughly twice as fast as current-generation hardware and it looks very promising when stacked with theoretical […]
02/20/2013, Word on the street have it that NVIDIA’s Tegra 4, which was unveiled in January this year, will arrive in the chassis of some smartphones from manufacturer ZTE sometime in the middle of this year. Yes sir, the Chinese smartphone manufacturer ZTE intends to keep things under wraps at the moment without revealing the kind of naming conventions that they have for the new Tegra 4-powered smartphones, and the first […]
02/19/2013, NVIDIA has just announced Tegra 4i, a new member in the Tegra 4 family of mobile processors. Tegra 4i features NVIDIA’s first integrated 4G LTE modem and it has been designed for smartphones that require both high-performance and very tight chip integration. The goal is to allow handset makers to build powerful designs at a lower cost and a smaller power envelope. The Tegra 4i chip won’t be as fast […]
02/12/2013, Last week, NVIDIA highlighted its Project SHIELD in the first video of its PC Mondays series by showing us how exactly the device will sync up with your PCs. The process was easier than we originally anticipated as it took very little effort to get the PC version of Borderlands 2 up and running through Steam. One concern people had regarding the demo was how exactly non-Steam games would play. […]
02/04/2013, Are you still at a loss on what NVIDIA’s Project SHIELD is all about? Fret not, we have a primer on the Tegra 4-powered Project SHIELD that should prove to be an entertaining read, but this time around, here is a new take on Project SHIELD when it comes to the game known as Borderlands 2. Perhaps your mind and body are just plain tired after investing most of your […]
01/31/2013, NVIDIA has already announced the Tegra 4 earlier this month, and Vizio is the first, in our opinion, to showcase an actual product running Tegra 4. We’re talking about Vizio’s 10.1-inch Tegra 4 tablet that was demoed to us at CES 2013. Now, DigiTimes is reporting that Toshiba, too, is planning to launch its own Tegra 4-powered tablet in June this year. Citing from Taiwanese supply chain makers, the publication […]
01/31/2013, NVIDIA has provided some insights about how the NVIDIA Shield portable gaming device came to be (read about our hands-on time with the Shield at CES). I recommend reading the article on their website, and if you want a quick primer: it’s a great story of an ambitious idea which was turned into reality by an initial group of hardcore engineers which subsequently got company-wide support to the finish line. […]
01/28/2013, NVIDIA certainly did impress the masses with their Project Shield when it was first announced at CES earlier this month, and we do know that the company has a fair amount of interest in breaking into the smartphone as well as tablet markets with their range of Tegra chipsets for some time already, achieving rather limited success along the way. Having said that, it seems that NVIDIA has a more […]
01/16/2013, Advanced Micro Devices, popularly known as AMD, has filed a complaint yesterday saying that four of its previous employees, ex-key officials for that matter, brought along with them sensitive documents or electronic files before joining fierce graphics competitor NVIDIA. The defendants are Robert Feldstein, Manoo Desai, Nicolas Kociuk, and Richard Hagen.

01/06/2013, [CES 2013] When it comes to gaming, NVIDIA comes to mind as one of the main GPU manufacturers, although lately they have been attempting to make a splash in the mobile scene by creating their own brand of mobile chipsets, such as the recently announced Tegra-4.However it looks like being the backbone to gaming setups isn’t enough and the company has recently announced a new Android handheld gaming console of […]
01/06/2013, [CES 2013] What comes after Tegra 3? Why, the simple answer would be one of the world’s worst kept secrets, Tegra 4. Just what kind of processing muscle does the Tegra 4 pack? For starters, there are 72 GPU cores, a quartet of Cortex A15 CPU cores, and a 4G LTE modem, how about that? Smartphones and tablets that intend to pack Tegra 4 underneath the hood, you might just […]
01/06/2013, [CES 2013] NVIDIA is not quite done with their press conference just yet, and this time we are looking at the birth of Skynet. No, we’re kidding, it would be the rise of cloud computing, and over the course of time, the infrastructure cost has been lowered dramatically recently. Gamers do ask themselves how come cloud computing did not bring that much benefit in terms of gaming, but things look […]
