Google Project Tango hands-on: 3D mapping with phones

Google Project Tango hands-on: 3D mapping with phones

Google loves smartphones, but with Project Tango it’s hoping to make them even smarter and more aware. The handiwork of Google’s skunkworks Advanced Technology and Projects Group, it explores what happens when you add high-resolution 3D mapping sensors to an Android device, and what the potential is for gaming and more. We caught up with Johnny Lee, technical program lead at Google, to find out more about the project and get some hands-on time with the prototype device.

NVIDIA SHIELD’s GameStream ready to pair with gaming notebooks

NVIDIA SHIELD’s GameStream ready to pair with gaming notebooks

Support for the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 800M collection of graphics processors is now ready alongside several other sets of processing hardware for the NVIDIA GameStream experience. What this means for NVIDIA SHIELD owners is that their gaming laptop, if too large for any given situation, can be used to stream games to their NVIDIA SHIELD. This ability will be activated immediately if not soon for a number of Kepler and Maxwell based GPU-toting notebooks.

NVIDIA Iray VCA tells designers to ditch prototyping

NVIDIA Iray VCA tells designers to ditch prototyping

NVIDIA's Titan Z isn't the only massively-powerful graphics system the company has for GTC 2014: there's also the $50,000 Iray VCA, aimed straight at designers aiming to bypass physical prototypes. The stackable, scalable box promises to replace a workstation cluster, containing eight of NVIDIA's fastest GPUs for a total of 23,040 CUDA cores.

Valve ports Portal to NVIDIA SHIELD

Valve ports Portal to NVIDIA SHIELD

In a bit of a surprise twist to the end of his GPU Technology Conference 2014 (GTU 2014, that is) chat, NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang let it be known that Portal would be coming to NVIDIA SHIELD. Not just streaming, and not just in a mirrored mode. Instead, he said, Valve has ported Portal to NVIDIA SHIELD specifically in its entirety.

Audi self-driving car brings NVIDIA Tegra K1 front and center

Audi self-driving car brings NVIDIA Tegra K1 front and center

NVIDIA has brought the power of CUDA to mobile, further detailing how the NVIDIA Tegra K1 SoC will be brought to Audi to prove its name as the future of mobile processing - inside and outside of cars. In the NVIDIA Tegra K1 you've got processing power enough to roll with self-driving cars like the one Audi has driven out this week in addition to the versatility needed to land in tablets and other odd smart devices down the line. Just like the NVIDIA Tegra 4, K1 is ready for action far above the system-on-chip architecture of the past.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan Z official for real-time magic

NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan Z official for real-time magic

NVIDIA has revealed its latest video card, the GeForce GTX Titan Z, its new flagship with two Kepler GPUs for a total of 5,760 processing cores. Succeeding the Titan Black, the new Titan Z uses a pair of NVIDIA's GK110, tuned to run at identical clock-speeds so that neither slows the other down. The result is an incredible amount of performance for real-time simulation and computer graphics.
