What you need to know about NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 1080

Given the advances in graphics tech in recent years, you'd be forgiven for thinking all things are now equal in GPUs, but NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1080 still stands out. The newly-announced video card - and its GeForce GTX 1070 sibling - debut NVIDIA's Pascal architecture, and it turns out that's a big deal indeed. Improvements in power efficiency, physical size, and most importantly graphics abilities make this possibly the most exciting GPU we've seen in the past few years.

NVIDIA Ansel revolutionizes in-game photography

NVIDIA Ansel revolutionizes in-game photography

When NVIDIA launched GeForce Experience a few years back, it changed the way we were able to record gameplay. No longer did we need to use some clunky, bloated program like FRAPS to capture our videos. Shadowplay took care of all of that for us, and it’s been wonderful. Well last night NVIDIA announced that they would be revolutionizing the way we take screenshots. And it’s a big deal.

NVIDIA, Samsung lay down arms, settle all patent squabbles

NVIDIA, Samsung lay down arms, settle all patent squabbles

As the song goes, let there be peace on Earth. Or at least in the mobile graphics market. Happily, that seems to be the case at least between NVIDIA and Samsung, who have finally decided to settle their differences outside of court. After more than a year of back and forth mudslinging and suits and countersuits, the two have agreed to a settlement that, among other things, involve a small amount of cross-licensing. Money might have been involved, too, but of course they're not going to say that.

Tegra K1 JXD S192 “retro” gaming tablet goes on pre-order

Tegra K1 JXD S192 “retro” gaming tablet goes on pre-order

"Gaming tablet". Now that's one we haven't heard in quite a while. With a few exceptions, like Archos' now silent GamePad, or Acer's odd-looking Predator, or NVIDIA's stylus-less SHIELD Tablet K1, most tablets do not usually advertise game-ability. Multimedia and processing power, sure, but nothing close to gaming on big displays. JXD, however, isn't giving up the fight just yet. The same Chinese OEM who brought us a PSP-alike Android tablet is now putting up the JXD S192 on pre-order, promising the power of NVIDIA's Tegra K1 chip in a different, unique, and more odd-looking package.

Super Meat Boy launches on NVIDIA Shield Android TV

Super Meat Boy launches on NVIDIA Shield Android TV

Games like Dark Souls are known for their ability to frustrate players with sheer difficulty, and unexpected death traps. While that's a big deal now, back in the NES era, games like that were somewhat commonplace. A few years ago one developer decided to recapture the insane difficulty of 90's games, and gave birth to Super Meat Boy. And just when you thought that game had made it to every available platform, it makes its way to yet another.

NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet K1 update brings in Vulkan, fixes galore

NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet K1 update brings in Vulkan, fixes galore

The SHIELD Tablet K1 may just be a more affordable, stylus-less version of the original SHIELD Tablet, but that doesn't make it a has-been in any way. In typical NVIDIA "good Android citizen" image, the tablet is getting a new update, not to Android N preview of course, but at least some parts of it. In particular, NVIDIA is rolling out support for the fledgling Vulkan API just as it did with the SHIELD Android TV console last February. The update also brings a ton of fixes to the gaming tablet.

The past few weeks have been very busy and fortunate for artificial intelligence. Last month saw the triumph of AlphaGo, from Google's DeepMind AI arm, against a human Go champion.

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel comes to NVIDIA SHIELD Android TV

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel comes to NVIDIA SHIELD Android TV

A gaming platform is only as good as the games that are on it. If you don't have any good titles, then it's hard for gamers to justify picking up your hardware. Well NVIDIA is no stranger to this concept, which is why the Shield is packed with plenty of great games. And today, they're adding another one to their collection: Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel.

As part of its marketing campaign for its SHIELD Android TV console, NVIDIA partnered with Loot Crate to send out a special "Mega Crate" to some lucky random Loot Crate subscriber. That crate naturally contained a host of NVIDIA goodies, like a SHIELD console, a year's subscription to GeForce Now game streaming, Netflix, and, wait for it, a skydiving experience. Georgia resident Tim Schultz happened to be that lucky subscriber, but his luck seemed to be even greater than hoped for. Little did NVIDIA know (or maybe it did) that Tim is a paraplegic.

Unity engine 2016 demo is terrifyingly realistic (paving way for VR)

Today the folks at Unity have revealed a shirt film called "Adam" to demonstrate the abilities of their Unity engine. This clip is part of a longer film that'll be released (in full) by the Unity Demo team at Unite Europe 2016 in Amsterdam. Until then, you have this - a masterpiece in its own right.

Unity announced this week the availability of both Unity 5.4 and Unity 5.3.4 (stable), as well as the availability of beta releases to personal edition users. In Unity 5.4 this means big things not only for flat, 2D rendering, but for virtual reality rendering as well.
