NVIDIA has teamed up with Ubisoft and has announced its latest game bundle. Starting today anyone who purchases a graphics card above a GeForce GTX 760 and GeForce GTX 660 for the 700 and 600 series will receive a free game coupon for Watch Dogs.
NVIDIA’s Dual-GPU Geforce GTX Titan Z is supposed to launch tomorrow, but according to a report by Sweclockers the launch of the card has been delayed. It is unclear why NVIDIA will be postponing the card. Some say PR issues, others say that NVIDIA wants to make sure to card competes will against AMD’s R9 295X2.
Back when NVIDIA announced its SHIELD portable gaming device they thought they were going to blow the socks off the industry. Well that really has not happened and besides giving the unit away to bloggers and press at events they really have had a hard time pushing the device. At the GPU Technology conference the company announced new updates and features to the device.
Yesterday at NVIDIA’s GPU Technology Conference the company announced its next generation GPU which will be called “Pascal”. This GPU was previously named Volta, Pascal introduces new technologies like NVLINK (UVM) and 3D Memory (stacked DRAM).
NVIDIA started off the GPU Technology conference today by announcing the GeForce GTX TITAN Z. This card packs two GK110 GPU’s on to a single card giving it a total of 5760 CUDA cores and 12GB of on board memory. NVIDIA is currently saying this card is capable of 8 TeraFLOPS and is designed for 5K gaming!
It looks like other companies were feeling the pressure as Sapphire had announced two R9 290X’s with 8GB a VRAM. Those cards would outperform the GTX 780 Ti in terms of available memory. Well it looks like EVGA will be releasing both a GTX 780 Ti and a GTX 780 with 6GB of VRAM.
NVIDIA has just announced that they will ending driver support for all GeForce GPUs below the GeForce 4xx mark. This means they will be ending support for all non-DX11 based cards so only Kepler, Fermi and Maxwell will have driver support.
NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 750 Ti is not really much to talk about especially when it comes to gaming. Although it is something that the cryptomining crowd should definitely take a look at for its price-performance ratio and low power draw.
