A souped-up GeForce graphics card, the Zotac GeForce GTX 560 Ti, packing a total of 448 cores rather than the usual 384, has been pictured ahead of its official release. The image, leaked to Fudzilla, shows box-art for the NVIDIA-based performance video card, as well as the hardware itself, clad in a brightly colored cooling system.
It's time to check out Batman: Arkham City for the first OFFICIAL time running with NVIDIA's DirectX 11 Graphics and GPU Physics, certainly a sight to behold and set to be released on November 15th! In short, this game Arkham City builds on the ground-breaking 2009 game by the name of Batman: Arkham Asylum, one of the first games on the market to make use of Hardware-Accelerated PhysX effects which enhanced not only background details but incidental items as well, plus whole levels such as, as NVIDIA notes, the Scarecrow's nightmare world* (*included at the end of this post, for those of you that've never been there.) Now behold, footage from Arkham City, a game running with the graphics card it was made to run with, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560, with PhysX enabled for the greatest amount of detail you can imagine!
With great power comes great responsibility, and also - if you're talking about Intel's 2011 Sandy Bridge processor line-up, at least - generally sizable pricing. Acer is looking to change that with the new Aspire TimelineX AS5830TG-6402, a lengthy name for a 15.6-inch Core i5 notebook that ticks all the spec boxes for a high-speed desktop replacement only with a bargain $799.99 price tag. Too good to be true or the best deal around? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.
NVIDIA has outed its latest video card, the GeForce GTX 560, slotting into the competitive $199 price segment and offering 336 CUDA cores, an 810-950MHz graphics clock and 1620-1900MHz processor clock, along with 1GB of GDDR5 memory with a 256-bit interface. Meanwhile, NVIDIA has also released its new beta GeForce R275 drivers, promising boosted performance across various games and new 3D Vision support for more than 525 new titles.
AMD may have its own Radeon graphics card range, but that doesn't stop many gamers wanting to use NVIDIA's GeForce cards in SLI configuration. Now, NVIDIA has announced that it is reintroducing SLI support for AMD motherboards, with ASUS, Gigabyte, ASRock and MSI all among the first wave of manufacturers who will be including the technology on their 990FX, 990X and 970 based 'boards.
Intel always said its Sandy Bridge processors were capable of a lot, and gaming laptop manufacturer ORIGIN has taken them at their word with the massively-overclocked EON17-S. Running at up to 4.5GHz with Turbo Boost, the ORIGIN EON17-S pairs 2011 Core i5/i7 processors with B3 stepping motherboards and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460M/GTX 485M graphics, to make the desktop-replacement you've always dreamed about.
Acer has outed its latest all-in-one, the 24-inch Acer Aspire Z5761. Built around a choice of Intel Core i5-2400S, i5-2500S or Core i7-2600S processors along with up to 8GB of RAM, the touchscreen desktop promises home entertainment and even some gaming potential thanks to a range of discrete NVIDIA GPUs to choose from.
Poor old AMD; the company got to hold on to the "world's fastest graphics card" title for all of two weeks with the Radeon HD 6990, and now here comes NVIDIA to try to snatch it away. The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 590 is finally official, and as we expected it's a dual-GPU masterpiece of CUDA grunt folded into a super-quiet chassis.
NVIDIA has outed its latest video card, the mid-range NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550 Ti. Expected to come in at around $149, the GTX 550 Ti packs 192 CUDA cores, a 1,800MHz clock speed and a 900MHz graphics clock, along with 1GB of GDDR5 memory, good for DirectX 11 support, OpenGL 4.1 and 3D Vision support.
AMD was originally tipped to be waiting on NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 590 to arrive before launching the Radeon HD 6990, but the company pulled the trigger on the "world's fastest graphics card" earlier this week. That leaves the coast clear for the GTX 590, which according to Expreview is scheduled to arrive on March 22 2011.
