NVIDIA 1650, 1660 Ti release dates, OEMs, and pricing

The new NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 card is official now, with a whole bunch of designs off and running in manufacturer editions.

NVIDIA corrects Musk’s math in self-driving supercomputer showdown

NVIDIA corrects Musk’s math in self-driving supercomputer showdown

NVIDIA has pushed back against Tesla's Full-Self Driving Computer claims, praising the upstart automaker for its chip handiwork, but denying that the EV-maker is ahead. Elon Musk, Tesla's CEO, revealed the latest iteration of the car company's computer for assisted and - eventually, or at least so the promise goes - fully-autonomous driving yesterday, at an event in California.

Tesla custom Full Self-Driving Computer is already in all new cars

Tesla custom Full Self-Driving Computer is already in all new cars

Tesla, particularly CEO Elon Musk, isn't exactly popular for its estimates and predictions. It has recently admitted its failure to meet expectations and demand in shipping its Model 3 electric cars. So when the carmaker actually does get the estimate right, it's a pleasant surprise. Even better, however, Musk has said that its custom Full Self-Driving Computer promised 6 months ago isn't just here, it is actually already hiding inside all Tesla models made within the past weeks.

NVIDIA brings ray tracing to some GeForce GTX cards today

NVIDIA brings ray tracing to some GeForce GTX cards today

Back at GDC 2019, NVIDIA revealed that it would be bringing ray tracing to some of its GTX cards by way of a new Game Ready driver. What used to be the sole domain of NVIDIA's higher-end RTX cards, this announcement meant that many more PC gamers would get the chance to see real-time ray tracing in action. 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 has a hidden split screen mode

NVIDIA SHIELD has a hidden split screen mode

NVIDIA is the company that just keeps giving, at least as far as Android gamers and users are concerned. Long past the usual two-year support period, NVIDIA continues to push updates to its SHIELD Android TV box with new games, apps, and features. Granted, this latest one isn't exactly something that NVIDIA has directly given SHIELD owners but if this split screen mode is really a feature rather than a bug, the users will probably consider it as one anyway.

NVIDIA GauGAN neural network makes masterpieces out of doodles

NVIDIA GauGAN neural network makes masterpieces out of doodles

Soon, not being able to draw may no longer be an excuse not to express yourself or your ideas in beautiful, photorealistic images. If you can scribble a shape and click on a few buttons, a shaky line can turn into a mountain range, a lopsided circle can become a lake, and incomprehensible doodles can transform into a masterpiece. That's pretty much the unbelievable accomplishment that NVIDIA researchers have made in developing the deep learning model named GauGAN that can turn almost any collection of lines into a work of art.

NVIDIA Jetson Nano brings big AI muscles to a palm-sized dev kit

NVIDIA Jetson Nano brings big AI muscles to a palm-sized dev kit

Artificial intelligence and machine learning is the buzzword not only in tech but even in the enterprise. Even for some developers, however, AI remains an almost esoteric field accessible only to those with beefy computers that can handle the workload. NVIDIA says that shouldn't be the case and to prove its point, it's launching the newest and smallest member of its Jetson family. While no Raspberry Pi, the Jetson Nano developer kit and Nano module put NVIDIA's CUDA-X AI chops in a compact and power efficient form that anyone can afford.

NVIDIA GTX 1660 brings Turing to Battle Royale fans on a budget

After unleashing the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti at the end of last month, NVIDIA is back today with an even more affordable card in the GTX 1660. Like the 1660 Ti, the standard 1660 is built on NVIDIA's Turing GPU architecture, so it shares something with the company's top-of-the-line RTX cards. There isn't any support for real-time ray tracing in the GTX 1660, but that's okay because it more than makes up for that missing feature in its price.
