NVIDIA has officially launched the GeForce GTX 580 GPU, and they're unsurprisingly pretty excited about it. The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580 is billed as the world's fastest DX11 GPU, 30-percent faster than the GTC 480 and packing 512 cores, 16 PolyMorph engines and support for either stereoscopic 3D or triple-displays.
NVIDIA has officially outed their latest GPU, the NVIDIA GeForce GT 430, a Fermi chip targeted at HTPCs. The new GT 430 promises 1.5x the gaming performance of previous-gen chips, together with full 3D and 1080p HD video support, HDMI 1.4a connectivity and 24-bit multi-channel audio up to 192KHz (along with lossless DTS-HD Master Audio and Dolby TrueHD audio bit streaming).
NVIDIA's GeForce 400 GPU design is finding quite a lot of homes recently. ASUS has just made official their usage of the latest design within their ENGTS450 graphics card. And with the announcement comes the plethora of features tagging along for the ride, all of which is made better by the Fermi-based DirectX 11 graphics card. Available right now for your purchasing and upgrading pleasure, in fact.
NVIDIA has given the official nod to the new GeForce GTS 450 video card, an "affordable" model that still attempts to deliver decent gaming performance. In fact, the company reckons the Fermi-based card packs 2.4x the geometry processing performance over its predecessor, along with DirectX 11 support and a roughly $129 price tag.
NVIDIA has outed its much-rumored GeForce GTX 460, a mid-range Fermi-based graphics card promising four times the performance of rivals, real-time PhysX and 3D support with a price tag of roughly $199. The company has focussed their efforts on DirectX 11 tessellation, with a quoted up to 4x improvement in performance over cards from other manufacturers.
NVIDIA have announced a new string to their 3D bow, in the shape of NVIDIA 3DTV Play, a way to hook up GeForce-based notebooks and PCs to HDTVs for full 3D video and gaming. A new software app - that works with any GeForce GPU-using machine with either DVI or HDMI connectivity - 3DTV Play supports 1080p24, 720p60 and 720p50 3D formats and will work both with active-shutter TV glasses and passive polarized glasses.
As well as full HD Blu-ray 3D playback, the system offers streaming 3D video support and the ability to convert over 400 games titles from 2D into 3D, in real-time, with no patches or extra software.
We're already caught sight of it - metaphorically speaking - in Clevo's D900F 17-inch gaming laptop, but NVIDIA have officially announced the new GeForce GTX 280M, one of four fresh mobile GPUs. The GTX 280M apparently offers up to 50-percent more performance than its last-gen "enthusiast laptop GPUs", with support for CUDA and PhysX gaming effects.
If you're looking to experience true 3D gaming, look no further than the NVIDIA GeForce 3D Vision. You'll feel like you're really in the game, and the biggest plus - the glasses aren't hideous. I'm willing to bet Kanye West would gladly sport those babies.
Presumably someone at Alienware has been talking with NVIDIA, as it hasn't taken the gaming PC manufacturer very long to announce new versions of their Area-51 desktop using the latest GeForce GTX 280 GPU. Available on the Area-51 7500, Area-51 and Area-51 ALX machines, up to three of the 602MHz GPUs can be specified.
It’s not often that we review the services of a device we’ve reviewed in the past, but the opening of the gates NVIDIA is providing here in the SHIELD, we must. When NVIDIA SHIELD was first introduced, the service that would eventually be called GameStream showed how we might mirror PC games to a handheld gaming system, and control them with that system too. Here a year and four months later, we get to see this service work outside of our own home internet network.
