NVIDIA teases big event: This is what we think is on the menu

It looks like NVIDIA is gearing up to make some kind of big announcement. Today, the company published a very vague teaser to its Twitter account in which it seems to be building anticipation for an announcement that's three weeks away. Obviously, without more information it's difficult to say for sure, but this could be the GeForce 3000-series announcement PC hardware enthusiasts have been expecting for some time now.

Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro+ might have a GPU feature found only on desktops

Smartphones are slowly but surely approaching PC-level performance, enough for certain companies to bank on mobile technologies to power their next-gen computers. One area where mobile still can't catch up with is in graphics and it will still be a long time before it ever will. That said, it seems that there are efforts from Qualcomm and Chinese phone makers like Xiaomi that are giving users the option of tweaking their phones' graphics performance to their preferences and needs.

Apple Silicon GPU for ARM Macs could present some problems

Apple Silicon GPU for ARM Macs could present some problems

Apple's official move to its own processors in future Macs and MacBooks has been one of the most-talked topics in tech news for the past weeks even it has been long-rumored anyway. A victory for the ARM CPU architecture and a blow to Intel, Apple's Silicon will have repercussions for everyone involved in the Mac ecosystem in more ways than one. Some of them will be good and some will take time to be accepted. There will also be other with perhaps unseen or at least unsaid consequences, like how the new chips could drastically change the Mac's capabilities in more than just performance.

ARM Mali GPU drivers can soon be updated faster from Google Play Store

ARM Mali GPU drivers can soon be updated faster from Google Play Store

Smartphones have become as powerful as lower-end PCs but there are definitely some things they still can't do. Heavy graphics, especially for games and visualization, is one of those but the entire graphics ecosystem on mobile is considerably different from their desktop counterparts. Graphics drivers, for example, are often at the mercy of vendor firmware updates, which is why ARM is now proudly announcing a new system that would allow drivers to be updated just like one would update an app.

Microsoft OpenAI supercomputer in top 5 most-powerful at launch

Microsoft OpenAI supercomputer in top 5 most-powerful at launch

Microsoft announced a supercomputer developed for OpenAI this week with power that ranks in the top 5 supercomputers on earth. That's counting the world's publicly disclosed supercomputers, mind you - there may be more powerful computers operating in secret - but this is about computing for the public good. The creation and operation of this new supercomputer was done as part of Microsoft's AI at Scale initiative.

NVIDIA A100, the first Ampere GPU, is an absolute monster

NVIDIA A100, the first Ampere GPU, is an absolute monster

NVIDIA made a lot of announcements during its GTC 2020 keynote today, but at the center of many of them is the company's new Ampere GPU architecture. Ampere is something that's been rumored for quite some time, and the first GPU that will use the architecture - the NVIDIA A100 - is quite the capable piece of hardware. Before you get too excited, though, you should know that the A100 definitely isn't a consumer card for gaming PCs or workstations.

NVIDIA Drive upshifts to Ampere GPUs for a smoother self-driving roadmap

NVIDIA Drive upshifts to Ampere GPUs for a smoother self-driving roadmap

During its GTC 2020 keynote today, NVIDIA finally pulled the veil back on its Ampere GPU architecture - at least somewhat. While details about Ampere are still slim, we do know that the company plans to move its Drive platform to new Orin SoCs that feature Ampere GPUs. This not only has big implications for the high-end autonomous systems that NVIDIA Drive already focused on, but it allows the platform to break into advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) as well.

Samsung Galaxy phone with AMD Radeon GPU coming next year

Samsung Galaxy phone with AMD Radeon GPU coming next year

Samsung and AMD announced a partnership last year that was unsurprisingly filled with generic "forward-looking" statements and nothing to show for. It was pretty much presumed that Samsung would be licensing AMD's Radeon graphics technology for use in its own Exynos chips. That hasn't born fruit yet but the wait might worth it if these early benchmark figures for the unnamed chip will be the performance will see on new Samsung flagships next year.

Mac Pro Radeon Pro W5700X MPX module now available for purchase

Apple has received a lot of criticism for the design of its last two Mac Pros but few will deny that those designs are completely pointless. In the case of the 2019 "cheese grater" model, the design not only allows for better ventilation but also for easier upgrades. That is what the new modular system is for and now you can try out that for yourself with the standalone AMD Radeon Pro W5700X MPX GPU module. That is if you have the money to burn for one.

Xbox Series X AMD GPU source code stolen and leaked

Xbox Series X AMD GPU source code stolen and leaked

Although some would consider how smartphone ARM processors have become powerful enough to challenge some PC CPUs, discrete graphics cards, especially those powering extra beefy computers, are still out of reach of these mobile computers. As such, it's a very profitable and therefore highly secretive business. So when alleged source code for some of AMD's high-profile graphics processing units (GPUs) leak out, it's no surprise that the company and the Internet are making a big fuss over it.
