Razer Blade 2016 details released: lighter, more powerful, cheaper

It would appear that Razer has found a sweet spot in its notebook lineup as they bring the hallmark of their collection, the Razer Blade, back with updated specs and pricing. We recently reviewed the Razer Blade Stealth, a very, very slim notebook with specs and build quality that surprised us to the point at which we've compared it directly to the best in the market. Razer's newest Razer Blade rolls with a newest-gen Intel Core i7 with 16GB of DDR4 as well as an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970M GPU.

Stardock tool to let you mix AMD and NVIDIA cards in one PC

Stardock tool to let you mix AMD and NVIDIA cards in one PC

It isn't ready for the market yet. It doesn't even have a cool name yet. But when Stardock's promised multi-GPU tool does come out, it could very well change the way we build PCs and buy graphics card. In theory, Stardock's still to be christened technology will allow you to mix and match any card to boost your PC's graphics capabilities. While that has always been possible with NVIDIA's SLI and AMD's CrossFire, the key difference here is that you can even mix and match cards from different brands and generations as well.

NVIDIA cleared of Samsung’s patent infringement suit

NVIDIA cleared of Samsung’s patent infringement suit

Sometimes it seems that justice can be as fickle as the wind, especially when it comes to patent cases. In the multiple infringement cases flung between NVIDIA and Samsung, the scales have finally tipped in favor of the famed graphics chip maker. At least for now. A federal jury court in Virginia declared that NVIDIA did not infringe on Samsung's patents related to memory used in its graphics cards. Somewhat amusingly, the case started with four patents hurled against NVIDIA but eventually ended up with only one.

Apple to blame for leaky incognito mode on Macs, says NVIDIA

Mac users, beware! Your super private incognito mode, or actually anything you might be doing that you don't want other eyes to see, might not be that safe after all. At least if those eyes belong to other people you allow to use your Mac. A report over the weekend revealed how Apple's computers sometimes suddenly pops up a "ghost" of a previously closed window, potentially revealing its contents. At first, it was NVIDIA's GPUs were theorized to be the culprit, as it is the one handling the graphics work. NVIDIA, however, says it's Apple's OS X that's at fault.

Climbing Mount Everest with the HTC Vive Pre VR headset

Climbing Mount Everest with the HTC Vive Pre VR headset

Virtual reality is a strange place to visit, particularly when that virtual reality is a mountain you’ve never been to in person. At CES this week, NVIDIA showed off the HTC Vive Pre VR headset with a Mount Everest demonstration -- that is, a snowy digital landscape very carefully created to simulate the real thing, tents and all. Of course, imparting the climbing experience in virtual reality is not really possible, at least not in the absence of a stepping machine and air conditioner. Making you feel as if you might plunge down an icefall abyss, though? They nailed that part.
