DIGITS DevBox detailed by NVIDIA with Titan X inside

A high-powered developer-only computer, DIGITS DevBox, has been revealed by NVIDIA this week with the NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan X graphics processor inside. In fact there are four Titan X cards inside, and every component in the DIGITS DevBox has been optimized by the company to deliver what NVIDIA CEO and co-founder Jen-Hsun Huang described as "highly efficient performance for the toughest deep learning research." This mating domes with the DIGITS software package, as well, including Caffe, Theano, Torch, and cuDNN 2.0, a set of software aimed directly at deep learning work.

NVIDIA Quadro M6000 detailed for graphics pros

NVIDIA Quadro M6000 detailed for graphics pros

Almost in silence - in the wake of the re-reveal of the GTX TITAN X, NVIDIA has revealed information about the Quadro M6000 graphics card for professionals. This beast of a card works with a Maxwell GM200 graphics core - much like the Titan X, but here we've got far more unlocked performance for those that need to bring the big guns to graphics display - like Deadmau5. This card works with 3072 CUDA, 6 Graphics Processing Clusters, and four Streaming Multiprocessor Units, and 128 cores per SMM block.

GeForce GTX Titan X detailed and priced by NVIDIA

Today NVIDIA has revealed their newest, most powerful graphics card to the public: GeForce GTX Titan X. This device was teased at the Epic Games keynote earlier this month at GDC 2015 - here at GTC 2015, it's being revealed in full. This card works with NVIDIA's GM200 GPU, rolling with 3072 CUDA Cores, a 384-bit memory interface, 7GHz memory clock, and peak memory bandwidth of 336.5GB/sec. That's a cool 50% increase over the peak bandwidth of this card's release predecessor, the GeForce GTX 980 (have a peek at our GTX 980 Review to get an idea of where we're going from here).

NVIDIA GPU Pascal detailed for 2016 release

Onstage at GTC 2015, NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang revealed the next-generation in GPU power with Pascal. This GPU takes the place of Maxwell and will be arriving around the year 2016. After this is Volta, coming in 2018. This GPU is suggested by NVIDIA to be coming with 10x the performance of Maxwell. That's with what Huang suggested was "CEO Math" - with "very rough estimates," that is to say. Not final, but likely close to reality. Huang asked for forgiveness from all the people working on the real math - but it'll be close.

Titan X details: supercomputing takes a jump

Titan X details: supercomputing takes a jump

This week NVIDIA announced that the total number of CUDA downloads reached a whopping 3 million. Back in 2008, there were 150,000 downloads total. In 2015 there are 319 CUDA apps, far surpassing the number of apps back in 2008 - just 27. NVIDIA CEO and co-founder Jen-Hsun Huang made clear that he was proud of the graphics computing community, suggesting that the jump from 77 supercomputing teraflops back in 2008 to 54,000 supercomputing teraflops globally here in 2015 was a monumental jump. This comes to fruition with 450,000 Tesla GPUs in the world today as well.
