Well it is finally official! NVIDIA has formally launched its GeForce GTX Titan X flagship graphics card at it s own GPU Technology conference today. While we knew most of the specifications from previous leaks, the card is based of the new Maxwell GM200 silicon. The Titan X will have 3072 CUDA cores, 192 TMUs, 96 ROPs, and a 384-bit GDDR5 memory interface that holds 12 GB of memory.
ASUS already has a great lineup of X99 motherboards, but we were wondering if we would see an X99-based TUF (The Ultimate Force) motherboard come out. Well it looks like the waiting is over as the company has unveiled the TUF Sabertooth X99 at CeBIT this week!
AMD recently showed industry partners, likely add-in board partners a presentation on the upcoming Radeon R9 390X. The presentation was leaked to the web via photographs taken of the slides and they look quite legitimate. The first slide shows the official specifications of the card. The first thing that sticks out is that the R9 390X WCE (water-cooled edition) will have 4096 stream processors! That is quite a jump compared to the 2816 the R9 290X has.
The global leading motherboard brand ASRock will be debuting the latest SuperSpeed+ USB 3.1 motherboards at CeBIT 2015 Hall 15 Booth D21. With the USB 3.1 specification announced last summer, USB 3.1 featured devices will definitely be in the spotlight at CeBIT 2015.
Well just before the weekend Canadian music producer Deadmau5 published a picture on his Instagram account showing off not one, but two NVIDIA Quadro M6000 graphics cards in a system which is used to run his tour visuals. While not the most reliable source for a graphics card leak, take it for what its worth. We are assuming NVIDIA provided Deadmau5 with these cards without any NDA agreement or restrictions for his tour.
It looks like the Battlefield Hardline developers have added a pretty funny Easter egg in the game. It is a drivable couch called “The American Dream” which is accessible in the Dust Bowl map in multiplayer.
It looks like Microsoft will be changing the way Windows updates are pushed out to users. The Verge has noticed that the latest leaked version of Windows 10 is letting you get updates through peer-to-peer means. This includes different updates from other computers on your network or even online.
It look like ASRock really wants to you build an awesome mini-ITX system as they have revealed the world’s first mini-ITX socket LGA2011v3 motherboard! Yes that means you can pop in an eight-core Intel Core i7-5960X processor and DDR4 memory into a mini-ITX build! The new board is the X99E-ITX/ac and is a standard mini-ITX motherboard with a good amount of its PCB taken up by the large LGA2011v3 socket.
The architecture block-diagram for NVIDIA’s GM200 silicon has been leaked to the web. The NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan X will be making full use of the GM200 silicon which it is based off of. The GM200 will feature six Graphics Processing Clusters (GPCs) each will hold 4 SMMs. So that gives the full processor 24 SMMs with a total of 3072 CUDA cores based on the Maxwell architecture.
