This card goes by the name NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 Ti, and though we've not got one whole heck of a lot of detail on it yet, we do know that it'll be presented as a "high-end enthusiast" graphics card in the near future.

NVIDIA G-Sync module kills gaming monitor tearing

NVIDIA G-Sync module kills gaming monitor tearing

NVIDIA has revealed G-Sync, a new module for gaming monitors that, when used with a GeForce GPU, helps avoid tearing and skipping. The new hardware, shown off by NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang at the company's Editor's Day in Montreal, works around the limitations of V-Sync, the system by which monitors currently deal with changing refresh rates, by setting up a path of direct communication between display and graphics card and synchronizing the refresh rate of both together.

NVIDIA gives Batman: Arkham Origins a bump with GPU team-up

NVIDIA gives Batman: Arkham Origins a bump with GPU team-up

With the launch of the next blockbuster gaming title Batman: Arkham Origins, NVIDIA has decided to team up with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment to package the game with their newest series of Graphics Processing Units. This is the sort of bump that NVIDIA has been known to give to only the highest-quality and graphics-intensive games in the past, most recently giving such a bump to Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Blacklist - also free with qualifying pick-ups of GeForce GTX processors. Here with Batman: Arkham Origins, codes will be packaged with a series of NVIDIA graphics cards for instant download of the game.

MacBook Air rigged with NVIDIA GeForce GPU for Thunderbolt super-build

MacBook Air rigged with NVIDIA GeForce GPU for Thunderbolt super-build

It's a frankenstein monster of efforts, this computing rig appearing this afternoon, one that connects a MacBook Air to graphics it has no business running on its own - but certainly has the ability to roll with, it would seem. This amalgamation of bits and pieces starts with a Thunderbolt to Express Card adapter, moving on then to an ExpressCard to PCI-Express adapter, then connecting in the end to an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570 graphics card. This beast then - after all that - brings what very much appears to be a high-end gaming experience to the Apple notebook.

Dear Apple, here’s what I want from the new Thunderbolt Display

Dear Apple, here’s what I want from the new Thunderbolt Display

The Apple Thunderbolt Display is long overdue a makeover. Revealed in July 2011, the 27-inch monitor has watched generations of MacBook come and go - and, until this year at least, the Mac Pro stagnate with no compatibility whatsoever - and, despite the iMac aesthetic it originally echoed being significantly upgraded last October, still languishes with its original design. Sometimes, with Apple, you have to be patient. The company has, for the most part, a yearly refresh cycle, but the Thunderbolt Display is (in tech terms) old. Still, that arguably just gives Apple the chance to do something particularly special with the new Thunderbolt Display - so here's my wish list.

NVIDIA has officially kicked off its GeForce GTX 760 GPU, which is being offered at the budget-friendly price of $249 and harboring Kepler architecture. In gaming benchmarks, the GTX 760 beats out the previous GTX 660 across the board, in some cases quite substantially. NVIDIA hails it as offering power "dramatically" beyond the gaming consoles slated to hit shelves in the coming months.

NVIDIA GPU neural network makes Google’s cat-spotter look dumb

NVIDIA GPU neural network makes Google’s cat-spotter look dumb

Google's artificial neural network which taught itself to recognize cats in 2012 has been left looking like a dunce, with a new network by NVIDIA and Stanford University packing more than six times the brainpower. The new large-scale neural network uses NVIDIA's GPUs to pack in 6.5x more processing power than Google before it, but in a far smaller footprint. In fact, where Google's system relied on the combined power of 1,000 servers, NVIDIA and Stanford pieced together their alternative with just sixteen.
