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.

NVIDIA Quadro 600 & 2000 Fermi-Based Cards Unveiled, Available Now

NVIDIA Quadro 600 & 2000 Fermi-Based Cards Unveiled, Available Now

NVIDIA has officially announced today that they've made their two brand new Fermi-based workstation cards available for purchase. The company is scaling back the cores, but promises that the two new cards will be less expensive than their predecessors, and will also offer better performance over the previous cards they are replacing. The Quadro 600 has been issued only 96 cores, while the Quadro 2000 features 192 cores. Both cards hike up the performance, according to NVIDIA, even as they scale back on the hardware.

Eurocom Panther 2.0 Mobile Gaming Station Launching Later This Month

When we see laptops now-a-days, the general rule of thumb is that thinner is better. But, when you want a small bit of mobility with your gaming rig, that thinness gets dropped out the window. After all, if you want the same guts that go into a desktop, shoved into a frame like a laptop, you can't expect every miracle to be granted. In the case of Eurocom's Panter 2.0 mobile gaming station, just from the looks of it you're obviously getting quite the powerhouse.
