This week on our Weekly Tech Podcast we talk about information on upcoming graphics cards from both NVIDIA and AMD, new Intel Broadwell processors, the possibility of three new iPhone’s coming and much more!
It looks like NVIDIA is prepping yet another graphics card based on its Maxwell architecture. This time it will be the GeForce GTX 980 Ti, which will feature the full GM200 silicon. According to reports this will not be a cut-down version of the chip either and the card will feature the full 3072 CUDA cores.
Yesterday and today every graphics card maker announced their GeForce GTX Titan X graphics cards. Almost all of them have the same reference design on them. EVGA was one company that not only announced a a Titan X with the reference cooler, but also one with a custom full-cover waterblock installed. This is their GeForce GTX TITAN X HydroCopper.
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.
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.
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.
NVIDIA has launched a large selection of mid-range to entry-level mobile GPUs designed for laptops and other mobile systems. The mid-range parts start with the GTX 960M and GTX 950M while the company also launched entry-level parts such as the GTX 940M, GTX 930M and GTX 920M, which they say all will perform better than Intel’s integrated GPUs.
This week on our Weekly Tech Podcast we talk about about the launch of Apple’s new Macbook and what ASUS has to say about it, some interesting hacking articles, the GeForce GTX Titan X benchmarks and more!
Well it was only a matter of time, here are the first benchmarks of NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX Titan X graphics card. Someone had access to four of these card and installed them on a system powered by a Core i7-5960X and compared single GPU and 4-way SLI performance on 3DMark 11 with its “Extreme” preset.
