That Game Ready driver is landing today, so those of you with a GTX card can give it a download and get a taste of what ray tracing adds to video games.

NVIDIA SHIELD update brings free GeForce NOW beta and more

Say what you want about NVIDIA but its commitment to its SHIELD Android TV devices is perhaps unprecedented in the Android world. Sure, it has already abandoned its SHIELD Portable handheld and its SHIELD Tablets saw their last updates in March, but even those were delivered long after most OEMs would have stopped providing updates. Its real SHIELD baby, however, is the SHIELD Android TV consoles and those are now getting an update that does more than just add new features or apps. It also prolongs their use by letting them “play” PC games on TVs.

NVIDIA’s RTX 20 Series is promising but unproven

Yesterday, NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang took the stage at Gamescom to talk about something he was clearly very hyped about.

Ray Tracing for everyone: Made simple today

Ray Tracing for everyone: Made simple today

Video games you play use rasterization while videos you watch use ray tracing - or that's the way it's been in the past. Ray tracing focuses on each pixel's color and how light in the scene made that color so. Rasterization focuses on the objects in the frame at any given time, deciding how light affects the color and brightness of objects therein. Rasterization can be very low-compute-power, while ray tracing is at the moment requires high-compute-power.

NVIDIA GTX 1050 3GB is an unexpected new budget option

Despite the growing threat from AMD's Radeon Vega, NVIDIA continues to enjoy a period of popularity in no small part thanks to its aggressive push in the machine learning market. Of course it hasn't forgotten about regular consumers and, in fact, has a new graphics card for them. That said, there is nothing really groundbreaking with the new GTX 1050 3GB. In fact, there's nothing entirely new about it either. It's a surprising new low-end card that comes at a time when NVIDIA is just about to wrap up its Ge-Force 10 chapter.
