03/22/2012, NVIDIA has officially introduced the GeForce GTX 680, its latest high-end GPU based on the architecture codenamed “Kepler”. This is quite an upgrade as it adds three times as many “CUDA cores” (the basic computing blocks) when compared to the GeForce GTX 580, and at the same time, NVIDIA introduces a radical change in the way the clocking of the chip works. By using one single clock domain, which means […]

Obviously, SEGA’s Sonic is still a huge franchise, and the game is going to be released on multiple platforms, including game consoles and mobiles. What makes the Tegra 3 version interesting is that (we’ve been told) that it is the only mobile version that uses the […]
