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).

“We don’t have to worry about autonomous cars,” so says Elon Musk

“We don’t have to worry about autonomous cars,” so says Elon Musk

This morning at GTC 2015, Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk spoke onstage with NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang about car autonomy. Huang began with the "juicy stuff," as he called it. "You were quoted as saying artificial intelligence is more dangerous than nuclear weapons," suggested Huang to Musk, "...like a demon. How do you consolidate and rationalize that with deep learning’s potential?" Musk replied that autonomous cars weren't really in the scope of what he was speaking about - not with his warning about artificial intelligence, anyway.

NVIDIA DRIVE PX self-driving car system demoed in tiny DARPA vehicle

NVIDIA DRIVE PX self-driving car system demoed in tiny DARPA vehicle

NVIDIA is showing a smart vehicle the size of a remote-controlled car called Project Dave this week at GTC 2015. This is a DARPA project which runs NVIDIA DRIVE PX - a smart system made to allow this vehicle to navigate on its own. Deep neural net in action. We first learned about NVIDIA DRIVE PX back at CES 2015 where it was just a mobile supercomputer. In Dave, 3.1 million connections are made, video is processed at 12 frames per second, and 38 million connections are made per second.

NVIDIA GPU Pascal detailed for 2016 release

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.

NVIDIA Quadro M6000 GPU coming this week: Deadmau5 in tow

Later this week we're going to get details on the NVIDIA Quadro M6000 graphics card at GTC 2015. Over the weekend, no less than the musician Deadmau5 himself showed the web that he has not one, but two of these massive cards in his tour build right this minute. Deadmau5 speaks of how he'll be using the cards to both "debayer 6K" and "still have insane GPU power for everything else" with these cards. He goes on to thank NVIDIA and suggest that "tour visuals cometh!"

NVIDIA GTX 960M and 950M hit ultra-sleek gaming notebooks

NVIDIA GTX 960M and 950M hit ultra-sleek gaming notebooks

Not too long ago NVIDIA launched the GeForce GTX 980M and 970M notebook processors. Now it's time to bring heat with a couple more entries into the GTX 900M lineup with the GeForce GTX 960M and 950M, aimed first and notebooks from ASUS, Lenovo, Alienware, Acer, and HP - or Hewlett Packard, as the top of the laptop suggests. These notebooks are all made to game, but work with exterior aesthetics that you could easily mistake for a standard portable - they're not super flashy, that is to say.

The Hobbit VR hands-on: a Thief in the Shadows

Earlier this week, Epic Games announced that WETA Digital had created a VR experience for The Hobbit. This collaboration is called "Thief in the Shadows", and was the combined efforts of Epic Games, WETA Digital, NVIDIA, and Oculus, and it'd bring the wearer to the Lonely Mountain, put in place of Bilbo Baggins as he (the wearer of the Oculus VR headset) encounters the dragon Smaug for the first time. Oh, Stupendous One, how awesome it is to look upon your face from such a realistic perspective.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX TITAN X revealed, handed to Tim Sweeney

This week NVIDIA decided to reveal their next big graphics card at a press event that wasn't explicitly theirs. At the Epic Games event, with Tim Sweeney next to him, NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang revealed the NVIDIA GeForce GTX TITAN X was revealed for the first time. This card was revealed only with the promise of the whole audience that they'd come to GTC 2015. That's NVIDIA's own graphics-centric conference that takes place later this month - we'll be there too, of course.

Crysis 3 on NVIDIA SHIELD with Android TV hands-on

The Android version of Crysis 3 has been revealed, and here it is - in a very early form. This game is set to be released later this year - likely at the same time as the NVIDIA SHIELD home entertainment device - but for now it's in a very early stage of development. This is not a GRID game - it's running natively on Android. This is a real-deal Android game we'll be able to download from Google Play for NVIDIA SHIELD later this year.
