It has been reported that in April at NVIDIA’s GPU Technology conference we will see the biggest GPU NVIDIA’s has ever made! It will be the sucessor to the GeForce GTX Titan X. The card would likely be called the GeForce GTX Titan X2 and will feature HBM2 with scaling up 16-32GB with 1TB/s of memory bandwidth!
Typically NVIDIA does not take a long time between driver releases, but it has actually been over a month since we’ve had a driver release from them. Today NVIDIA releases their latest GeForce drivers, version 361.75 WHQL drivers which are “Game Ready” for Rise of the Tomb Raider, and Tom Clancy’s The Division (beta).
Both AMD and NVIDIA will be making use of HBM2 in their next-generation graphics cards that will be launching later this year. The JEDEC standards for HM2 were recently released and with that Samsung has just started mass production of their HBM2 memory chips.
High Bandwidth Memory (HBM) debuted with AMD’s Fury series graphics cards and was quite the success, although it had some limitations. The two biggest were that it was limited to 4GB and only had a maximum bandwidth of 512 GB/s. This is going to change with HMB2 which will introduce capacities up to 32 GB and speeds of 1 TB/s. This will be more than powerful enough for next-generation graphics cards coming from both NVIDIA and AMD.
For years Gigabyte has been a leader in aftermarket cooling for GPU with their Windforce line. More recently they added the G1 Gaming line and stepped up the performance just a little bit more. And now towards the end of the lifespan of Nvidia’s 9 series GPU, they are releasing a brand new series of cards called Xtreme Gaming.

The patent dispute between NVIDIA and Samsung has been going on for some time now. Well it does not look like things are going well for NVIDIA as Samsung is counter-suing over infringing on their own patents. NVIDIA could be possibly be looking at a sales ban, a United States International Trade Commission (US-ITC) judge held that NVIDIA is violating at least three Samsung Patents.
This week on our Weekly Tech Podcast we talk about our review of Thermatake’s Riing Fans, the possibility of NVIDIA releasing a GTX 960 Ti, AMD’s release of their new Radeon Crimson Software, Black Friday deals, and much more!
It looks like if you are looking to get a new graphics card this holiday season NVIDIA has your back. Their entire line of 900 Series GeForce GTX cards have received some pretty hefty price cuts that are just in time for the holiday season! This is the first time we’ve seen significant price cuts on the 900 Series since they were introduced back in late 2014.
