It looks like TSMC is ready to move to volume production on their 16 nm FinFET process. Based on a recent report we know that NVIDIA is joining them. Does that mean that NVIDIA is skipping the 20 nm fab process completely?
Samsung Electronics is looking to block graphics chips made by NVIDIA in the US market. This is escalating a battle that began after licensing talks failed. Samsung has filed a complaint yesterday against NVIDIA with the U.S. International Trade Commission according to a notice on the agency’s website.
NVIDIA has just introduced their GRID on-demand gaming service. This service will launch in North America on November 18th, next month in Europe and next year in Asia. The GRID service will be free on the NVIDIA SHIELD tablet and SHIELD portable through June 30, 2015.
It looks like NVIDIA will not be waiting for the 20 nm fab process for its next big GPU. Riding on the success of the GM204 silicon, the next enthusiast-segment GM200 silicon will be based on the 28 nm silicon fab process. NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX Titan II could be based off this silicon.
NVIDIA’s GeForce 900 Series has been a long time coming and gamers have anxiously awaited it. NVIDIA has been using the Kepler architecture for quite sometime and when Maxwell was introduced last year we only saw the entry-level and budget friendly cards. When we finally got word that we would be seeing performance segment Maxwell cards let’s just say we got excited. Today we will be looking at our first review of a GeForce 900 series card and it comes in the form of the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 970 G1 Gaming. For starters the GeForce GTX 970 has 1664 CUDA cores, 104 texture units, 64 ROPs and packs 4GB of GDDR5 memory. Normally this card would have speeds of 1050 MHz core and 1178 MHz boost, but Gigabyte has overclocked their version to speeds of 1178 MHz core and 1329 MHz boost. On top of that Gigabyte has implemented their latest WindForce 3X cooler on the card to give you the best cooling possible. Let’s get this card on the bench and see what it can do!
Coloful has launched their flagship GeForce GTX 980 iGame graphics card. This card come with one of the best cooling solutions and most muscular VRM solutions we have seen on a GeForce GTX 980.
Galaxy has just launched their single-slot GeForce GTX 750 Ti Razor graphics card in Europe under their Galax brand. This single-slot card uses a nickel-plated copper channel heatsink, which cools the GPU, memory, and VRM. The single-slot design makes it perfect for small form factor and HTPC builds.
NVIDIA’s budget-friendly GeForce GTX 960 graphics card is said to be postponed till Q1 of 2015 as reported by Hermitage Akihabara. The reason for NVIDIA delaying the release of the GTX 960 is strong sales of both the GeForce GTX 980 and GeForce GTX 970.
NVIDIA recently unleashed an onslaught on the gaming world, an onslaught named Maxwell. We launched the new graphics architecture during GAME24, an unprecedented 24-hour celebration of gaming. And it blew away gamers across the globe. We held onto one big secret, which we’re revealing today: the introduction of the GeForce GTX 970M and GeForce GTX 980M notebook GPUs.
