NVIDIA brings Industrial Light and Magic in to show off Kepler

NVIDIA brings Industrial Light and Magic in to show off Kepler

At the GPU Technology Conference (GTC) this week NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang spoke on the innovations they'd been pushing with their next-level Kepler GPU architecture, in their last show of power bringing in the big guns from the film industry with ILM. The folks at Industrial Light & Magic are responsible for some of the greatest film triumphs in our modern movie world, and the guest NVIDIA had on stage this week, Visual Effects Supervisor Grady Cofer, has worked on such hits as Star Trek, Pirates of the Caribbean, and the Avengers.

NVIDIA Kepler GPU power gets virtual on the iPad

NVIDIA Kepler GPU power gets virtual on the iPad

This week at the GPU Technology Conference (GTC) NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang has demonstrated the way in which NVIDIA is taking graphics processing to the cloud, starting with Kepler running massive amounts of GPU power on an iPad - virtually! In his first keynote speech of the event, Huang noted that he'd be showing off three new technologies - the first being the most powerful GPU NVIDIA's ever built, the second being a GPU "so small it can fit into an iPad", third he'd reveal a GPU "we can all share." This third reveal works with Kepler, NVIDIA's GPU technology which today Huang revealed would no longer need to connect directly to a display, instead rendering and streaming instantaneously "right out of chip to a remote location."

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 690 twin-Kepler official

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 690 twin-Kepler official

NVIDIA has launched its latest graphics card, the GeForce GTX 690, with twin Kepler cores making it the world's fastest, at least for the moment. The GPU company hasn't wasted the opportunity to make the GeForce GTX 690 look the part, either, with superlatives galore: a trivalent chromium-plated aluminum frame, thixomolded magnesium alloy fan housing, and dual vapor chambers with a nickel-plated finstack.

NASA extends Kepler Earth-a-like search until 2016

NASA extends Kepler Earth-a-like search until 2016

NASA has extended its Kepler space observatory project, announcing that the orbiting telescope will continue its search for alien planets capable of sustaining life until the end of 2016. So far, Kepler has discovered 61 confirmed alien planets - defined as Earth-scale and orbiting stars at a point where liquid water and potentially life could be supported - and flagged up around 2,300 more that could also be contenders; in fact, the project has been described in a NASA review as "an outstanding success."

MSI GeForce GTX 680 offers easy Kepler overclocking

MSI GeForce GTX 680 offers easy Kepler overclocking

MSI has revealed its GeForce GTX 680 card, using NVIDIA's freshly announced Kepler 28nm GPU and pairing it with MSI's own Afterburner overclocking tool for squeezing out extra performance. The MSI card sticks closely to the NVIDIA reference design - no bad thing given the early reviews - but ramps up the ease of tweaking the card's default settings, so as to squeeze a little bit extra out.

NVIDIA plans Tegra for notebooks and Kepler for Superphones

NVIDIA plans Tegra for notebooks and Kepler for Superphones

It's a world turned upside down here at the tail end of the week for NVIDIA as we get word that word is spreading of Tegra-based notebooks and Kepler-based Superphones in the not-too-distant future. These tips come from two separate notes, one from NVIDIA's CEO Jen-Hsun Huang speaking on Kepler's successful launch, the other from NVIDIA's mobile chief Rene Haas on Tegra's ongoing quest for supremacy. What you'll find is that quotes from the both of them have aspirations beyond what they've already done to conquer the computing and mobile worlds.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 600M GPUs bring Kepler to ultrabooks

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 600M GPUs bring Kepler to ultrabooks

It's not just desktops that get NVIDIA's new Kepler 28nm GPU in the shape of the GeForce GTX 680; notebooks can also get a shot of that extra graphics grunt, courtesy of the new GT 600M family. NVIDIA's new range of laptop GPUs will debut in the Acer Aspire Timeline Ultra M3, with a seven-strong range of chips promising anything from 48 to 384 CUDA cores, up to 64 GB/sec memory bandwidth, and double the gaming frame-rates of last year's GT 520M-based notebooks.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 officially debuts 28nm Kepler GPU

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 officially debuts 28nm Kepler GPU

NVIDIA has revealed its latest graphics card, the GeForce GTX 680, using its new Kepler GPU architecture for improved performance and lower power consumption. The successor to NVIDIA's Fermi, Kepler introduces a completely redesigned streaming multiprocessor with a focus on efficiency, along GPU Boost to dynamically adjust clock speed within power draw limits. Meanwhile, the GeForce GTX 680 also uses SMX, relying on the same base clock across the GPU and featuring 192 CUDA cores. 1536 cores on the GPU means, NVIDIA says, the GTX 680 "handily outperforms" its GeForce GTX 580.

Kepler telescope finds 11 new planetary systems, one has five planets

Kepler telescope finds 11 new planetary systems, one has five planets

The NASA team that operates the Kepler space telescope has used their all-seeing eye to find 11 new planetary systems. The new discovery brings the total number of planets that have been discovered by the Kepler team to 60. In all, there are 729 confirmed extra-solar planets. As always, the team uses regular changes in the light of the star to tell if planets are orbiting.
