Every nerd loves a good tech war: Windows vs Mac, Apple vs Android, Intel vs AMD. They give us something to armchair argue about over beers with friends—or to rant over in the comments of illustrious tech blogs. After spending the weekend playing with AMD’s new Vega 64 and Vega 56 graphics cards, I think I can safely…
A couple of weeks ago I was braving the big crowds of E3 to meet with the Nvidia team, and while I was ostensibly there to check out Destiny 2 on a PC, what I really wanted to know was what the hell Max-Q Design was. Nvidia announced its new design philosophy back in May, and I’d spent the intervening weeks unable to…
When you think gaming and laptops, images of massive, dictionary-thick machines come to mind. Notebook computers purpose-built for PC gaming are only barely portable, but Nvidia wants to change that with a new approach to hardware and software design for laptops called Max-Q that lets mobile gamers have their cake,…
Last year Nvidia launched its Pascal gaming line with the GTX 1080, bringing capable 4K PC gaming to the masses. The new Geforce GTX 1080 Ti upgrades that “capable” to “comfortable.”
Nvidia, picking up on the reality that most PC users don’t have the absolute latest in tech, have announced at CES a revamp of their Geforce Now service, which will let anyone with a PC or Mac stream games from “a Pascal PC in the cloud” (Pascal is the name given to the technology found on graphics cards like the…
Pascal is one of Nvidia’s greatest achievements in the past decade. The company’s latest GPU architecture took gaming performance to the next level with the GTX 1080 in May and then again with the Titan X only a few months later, though you’ll need $600+ to get your Pascal party started with one of these flagships.
Nvidia recently gifted laptop gamers with fully functional GeForce 10 series GPUs. Our coverage of the launch and details on Nvidia’s new mobile lineup can be found here, but for those who missed the announcement the big news is that Pascal brings GPUs with near exact specifications to laptops as their desktop…
The Witcher 3 is the latest game to see Nvidia’s fancy new Ansel screenshot technology implemented. Which means users can now not only take very high resolution screens, but panoramic 360-degree shots of their gameplay as well.
Today gaming notebook makers around the world begin shipping systems decked out with Nvidia Geforce GTX 1060, 1070 and 1080 GPUs, essentially the same Pascal-based graphics hardware introduced for desktop PCs earlier this year. The line, it grows thinner.
Didn’t Nvidia just release the GTX 1080? Not sure why they felt the need to go topping it already, but hey, they just did.
Nvidia’s new Ansel capture technology went live in Mirror’s Edge Catalyst this week, giving players a new way to explore, capture and share EA’s gleaming city of glass from simple screenshots to full 360 degree virtual reality shots. Every game needs this.
Launching July 19 and priced for mass consumption, Nvidia’s Pascal-powered GTX 1060 promises power comparable to the company’s former flagship GTX 980 and twice the energy-efficiency in virtual reality.
First, you spend too much on a new graphics card. Then, you fire up your chewiest, toughest PC games and make them beg for mercy. For one brief moment, your exorbitant purchase feels completely reasonable.
With the GeForce GTX 980 celebrating its second birthday soon, in the world of GPUs that puts it squarely over the hill. To further confirm that notion, we have its successor: the new GeForce GTX 1080 offers 60% more performance at what should eventually be a $50 price premium.
The Geforce GTX 1080 tops the performance of the $1,000 Titan X card for $700. The Geforce GTX 1070 basically matches it for under $400. That’s just nuts.
After months of speculation and anticipation, Nvidia’s latest piece of hardware you put in your computer to make things look pretty is here. The GeForce GTX 1080 is much better than the pieces of hardware you put in your computer to make things look pretty that came before it.
Joining the ranks of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, Resident Evil 5 is the latest big-name game to land on Nvidia’s plucky Android console. How does the seven-year-old game run on the Tegra X1? Let’s take a look.
Last year Nvidia introduced the top-of-the-line GeForce GTX Titan X, a $1,000 beast of a graphics card that blew just about everything else out of the water. Well forget that old thing. The newly-announced GTX 1080 is nearly twice as powerful for several hundred dollars less.
Look, sometimes you spend $709 on a gaming monitor and wind up really happy with your purchase. I’m not saying it happens every time, but it happened this time.
The hardest part of building a PC is picking the parts, especially when everyone around you seems to have an opinion. And no flame war is more prevalent than the NVIDIA snobs vs the AMD fanboys. What’s really going on with these two companies, and which card should you get?
