NVIDIA’s new AndroidWorks embraces even non-Tegra devices

NVIDIA just launched its shiny new SHIELD console, both the regular 16 GB model and the 500 GB "Pro" version, just in time for Google I/O last week and Computex this week. But as sweet as a gaming device might be, it's strength can only really be measured by the amount of content available for it. And to help create more content for its SHIELD devices, which in this case means Android games, NVIDIA is introducing a new tool based off its GameWorks tools called, what else, AndroidWorks.

NVIDIA’s G-SYNC tech finally lands on notebooks

Gone are the days when serious PC gaming was only done on lovingly assembled desktop monsters. Now even notebooks have enough muscle to sufficiently run even graphics intensive games. That said, monitors and their refresh rates will always be a problem, especially on laptops where you don't really have much of a choice. Now NVIDIA is coming to the rescue of gamers on the go. It has finally brought its G-SYNC technology to notebooks, promising tear and stutter free gaming on various models from Gigabyte, ASUS, MSI, and Clevo.

NVIDIA confirms existence of 500GB SHIELD Pro box

NVIDIA confirms existence of 500GB SHIELD Pro box

There you have it folks. More or less official confirmation that we weren't just imagining things or Amazon wasn't just messing things up. The NVIDIA SHIELD Pro, with a 500 GB of storage space, is real and it's coming. At least according to an NVIDIA employee who we hope is at liberty to confirm such things without endangering his employment. In any case, now that the question has been answered, the next one is "exactly when". Followed by, "will it have Netflix out of the box?"

NVIDIA SHIELD, “Pro” version appears, disappears from Amazon

NVIDIA SHIELD, “Pro” version appears, disappears from Amazon

It might be nigh time for NVIDIA's take on an Android TV gaming rig for your living room to come to market. That is, if the "accidentally" outing of the NVIDIA SHIELD is any indication. Amazon's product listings showed, and then swiftly removed, the NVIDIA SHIELD as well as an unannounced SHIELD Pro model, hinting that we're close to seeing one or both in the retail flesh soon. If that soon will be before May ends, it could give Android TV a serious boost before Google I/O 2015 kicks off.

NVIDIA GRID calls dibs on 1080p60 game streaming

NVIDIA GRID calls dibs on 1080p60 game streaming

If some of the major companies in the gaming industry are to be believed, rentingstreaming games over the Internet is the future. Or at least the distant future. But while that type of business promises no downloads and no installs, it partly sacrifices quality on the altar of convenience. At least until today. NVIDIA is understandably proud to claim that it is the first in this part of the gaming industry, which admittedly doesn't have much key players yet, to offer game streaming in Full HD quality at smooth 60 fps rates on its GRID games on demand service.

Nexus 9 Review: The iPad-Killer Blueprint

After a half-year on the market, the Nexus 9 remains one of the finest tablets available from any manufacturer. Like every Nexus device Google has ever offered, the HTC-made Nexus 9 was meant to be a blueprint - a benchmark for all other tablets. What we've done here is to take the Nexus 9 through the paces over a period of several months to give you an idea of what it's like to own this device for a real-life period of time, wear and tear included. Here we decide whether or not the Nexus 9 really should be considered the tablet you compare all other tablets to here and through the future.

Star Wars behind the scenes: The Live Motion Capture Future

Star Wars behind the scenes: The Live Motion Capture Future

Today we're taking a peek at how Star Wars is being made. The creation process, you'll find, isn't all that different from how video games are made. Video games like Star Wars 1313. Even though J.J. Abrams has assured the public time and time again that practical effects are king in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, we've got reason to believe that this doesn't necessarily mean that everything is as it seems --here we'll also be explaining why that's not necessarily a bad thing.

BenQ XL2420G G-Sync gaming monitor Review

BenQ XL2420G G-Sync gaming monitor Review

We've been using the BenQ XL2420G G-Sync monitor for the past several weeks and can safely say - without a doubt - this is easily one of the finest gaming monitors on the market. While we first said goodbye to V-sync forever all the way back in December of 2013 with our first G-Sync 101 and introduction, we've since seen a few monitors in the wild with the technology in-action. This beast had a lot to live up to after our look at the Acer XB280HK back in September.
