Over the weekend Amazon had two new listings on their new products page, one was for the NVIDIA SHIELD Console and the second was for a Pro version of it. The NVIDIA SHIELD console is nothing new and was announced at GDC back in March. We were unaware of a “Pro” version though and it looks like Amazon let the cat out of the bag.
A foundry partner is always important for companies like NVIDIA. TSMC has always given priority to Apple for orders, but it looks like NVIDIA will still be retaining the company as their “primary” foundry partner. NVIDIA also has Samsung as a foundry partner, but it remains unclear which products will be fabricated by TSMC and which ones by Samsung.
NVIDIA has just released an updated version of their GeForce Experience software that fixes the issues with the built-in streaming service that caused a very noticeable drop in performance. Last we reported on this issue and showed you how to get that performance back. Now NVIDIA has fixed this issue so you don’t have to worry about it.
NVIDIA has currently been bundling keys for the upcoming Witcher 3: Wild Hunt game with GeForce GTX 980 and GTX 970 cards. Getting one free game is great, but NVIDIA wanted to give you even more and now a second game code will be added, this time for Batman: Arkham Knight.
We have been talking a lot about NVIDIA’s upcoming GeForce GTX 980 Ti graphics card. While everything posted over the past couple of weeks has been rumors, everything in this post comes from a credible source and can be considered confirmed.
A Reddit user has discovered a neat little tick that could potentially increase frame rates of NVIDIA GeForce users. The user discovered that disabling the “NVIDIA Streaming” Windows service (which is set up to start automatically and always run) will result in a 3-5% frame-rate increase.
Acer today announced the 34-inch curved 21:9 ultra-wide Acer XR341CKA monitor, the world’s first curved monitor with NVIDIA G-SYNC, providing an immersive gaming experience with minimal stutters and screen tears. DTS sound, 2x7W speakers, a zero-frame design with a futuristic aluminum base and ambient lighting options create an exciting entertainment experience with style.
If you happened to want to get a GeForce GTX Titan X you only have one choice, the reference design from NVIDIA. NVIDIA did not allow add-in board (AIB) partners to modify the card with a custom PCB or a different cooler. Well it looks like this will change with the GeForce GTX 980 Ti, with NVIDIA apparently green-lighting custom versions of the card.
This week on our Weekly Tech Podcast we talk about all of the news coming out of the Star Wars convention, two new cases that came out this week, new security policy that the NSA wants to implement, and much more!
AMD is getting closer to launching their Radeon R300 Series and NVIDIA is not going to sit on the sidelines. According to the latest report from Sweclockers NVIDIA already has their new GeForce GTX 980 Ti ready for launch, but they don’t want to release it yet. Sweclockers has a pretty impressive track record when it comes to NVIDIA rumors, so it is likely that this is true.
