AMD’s Radeon Pro Duo formally launches, targets content creators and developers

AMD’s Radeon Pro Duo formally launches, targets content creators and developers Six weeks ago, AMD announced its Radeon Pro Duo GPU, a dual graphics solution based on the company’s 28nm Fiji graphics chip.The Radeon Pro Duo is formally launching today, at a cool $1,500, but it’s explicitly intended for VR developers and isn’t expected to be available in wide production.

Nvidia’s GTX 1080 redefines high-end gaming performance

Nvidia’s GTX 1080 redefines high-end gaming performance While the GTX 1080 isn’t scheduled to launch until May 27, Nvidia has lifted the curtain on the GPUs performance and technical advances.Unfortunately, Nvidia was unable to supply us with a GTX 1080 in time for launch, so we’ll have to defer benchmarks and performance comparisons for another day.

New PC motherboard teases Intel Skylake chipset, integrated GTX 1070

If the motherboard and GPU manufacturer has its way, however, its devices may soon be grabbing headlines — especially if the company brings its proof-of-concept B150 motherboard with an integrated GTX 1070 to market in the United States.The B150 is a budget chipset from Intel that supports the latest Intel Skylake processors, but doesn’t include overclocking options, RAID support, or nearly as many PCI-E lanes devoted to the chipset itself.

Lies, damned lies, and benchmarks: Futuremark responds to accusations of bias in new DirectX 12 Time Spy test

Lies, damned lies, and benchmarks: Futuremark responds to accusations of bias in new DirectX 12 Time Spy test Last week, Futuremark released Time Spy, a new DirectX 12 benchmark that takes full advantage of DX12’s features and capabilities, including asynchronous compute.Much of the confusion on this topic is related to what Time Spy tests and how it implements support for asynchronous compute in DirectX 12.

Report: Nvidia has settled class-action lawsuit over the GTX 970’s 3.5GB memory issue

Report: Nvidia has settled class-action lawsuit over the GTX 970’s 3.5GB memory issue When Nvidia launched the GTX 970 and 980 back in the fall of 2014, Maxwell quickly rose to prominence thanks to strong performance and excellent power efficiency.Early reviews showed good results on both cards, but deeper dives into the GTX 970 post-launch turned up troubling behavior: The card strongly preferred to limit its available memory to 3.

Secrets of Nvidia Maxwell, Pascal power efficiency revealed in targeted testing

Secrets of Nvidia Maxwell, Pascal power efficiency revealed in targeted testing Unlike Kepler, or the various GPUs manufactured by Intel and AMD, Maxwell and the current-generation Pascal both use tiled rendering.The Kyro II was a tile-based rendering solution built by PowerVR that won some fame and market share as a potent low-cost solution.

Gigabyte GTX 1060 G1 Gaming 6GB review: one of the best midrange GPUs you can buy today

Gigabyte GTX 1060 G1 Gaming 6GB review: one of the best midrange GPUs you can buy today If you’ve read our coverage of the Gigabyte G1 Gaming GTX 1070, you’ll recognize the GTX 1060’s cooler and fan layouts.The Gigabyte G1 Gaming GTX 1060 and G1 Gaming 1070 both use the same Xtreme Software Tuner, so I’ll refer you back to the GTX 1070 review if you have specific questions.

Scientists develop a laser version of 'Maxwell's demon,' get closer to quantum computing

Scientists develop a laser version of 'Maxwell's demon,' get closer to quantum computing The researchers who did it believe this development will be useful for quantum computing.What makes this relevant to quantum computing is that the power to manipulate individual atoms makes it possible to induce quantum gates, to see if they’ll scale.

Report: Nintendo Switch is Maxwell-based, built on 20nm technology

Report: Nintendo Switch is Maxwell-based, built on 20nm technology This strategy has had decidedly mixed results, and with the Nintendo Switch, there was speculation that the company might have adopted a fundamentally different approach.Sources have stated that the SoC inside the Nintendo Switch is built on Maxwell, not Pascal, and uses 20nm technology, presumably from TSMC.

Nintendo Switch's CPU, GPU clock speeds revealed

Nintendo Switch's CPU, GPU clock speeds revealed Last week, news leaked that Nintendo’s upcoming Switch wasn’t based on Pascal at all.But what’s truly surprising are the SoCs CPU and GPU clock speeds — if accurate, the Switch is going to be more handicapped than I thought.

Could Nintendo's Switch pack 1080p or 1440p support after all?

Could Nintendo's Switch pack 1080p or 1440p support after all? His series of tweets is below: The USB-C over DisplayPort tweet implies that the Nintendo Switch is using USB-C’s Alternate Mode for DisplayPort support with a USB 3.Game developers might have the option to target 720p (native tablet resolution) or upscale a 540p output to 1080p.

The Nintendo Switch won't feature a user-replaceable battery

The Nintendo Switch won't feature a user-replaceable battery So far, confirmed news on Nintendo’s Switch is difficult to come by.We know the chip is based on Nvidia technology, we know it’s a hybrid console, and we know it’ll feature detachable controllers.

Nintendo Switch launch event kicks off at 11 PM Thursday, pre-orders start Friday morning

Nintendo Switch launch event kicks off at 11 PM Thursday, pre-orders start Friday morning No, we can’t stuff a 120-150W TDP console from 2013 into a tablet from 2017, but the Wii U’s power consumption was vastly lower — around 30-40W when gaming.That kind of advance is possible, particularly considering that the Wii U was built on older 40/45nm technology, not 28nm.
