NVIDIA SHIELD TV teams with Alexa, comes with Echo Dot for short time

Amazon Alexa is the latest on a list of smart home and smart assistant services that work with NVIDIA's Android TV device, NVIDIA SHIELD. Today we're going to take a peek at the steps required to connect an NVIDIA SHIELD to Amazon's Alexa system - starting with the Amazon Echo Dot.

NVIDIA DRIVE AGX, Jetson AGX Xavier dev kits roll out

Japan is often seen as the land of robots and hi-tech machines, be it real-world ones or products of fiction. In the near future, the boundaries between those two might start to blur. Especially if NVIDIA keeps on pushing its flavor of AI to Japanese companies. At GTC in Japan, the graphics hardware maker dumped a lot of AI-related news, including the global availability of its new AI development kits for robots and, of course, self-driving cars.

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.

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.

With just a few hours away from NVIDIA’s grand but totally not unexpected unveiling of its GeForce 20 series video cards, one last leak arrives to complete the picture. And it might actually be the one most important one, at least for those who want a taste of that AI-powered ray-tracing that NVIDIA is promising with its new Turing architecture without going bankrupt.
