NVIDIA-teaser

You know, I had tried to make a clever lead-in for this news piece, but I’m still picking up my jaw from looking at these pictures. After the jump are some of the most revealing close-ups of Big Maxwell, which is scheduled to be launched either this week or the next. I’ve been waiting on reporting on these images because I was so sure that someone had made a really elaborate Photoshop of various GTX 700-series cards. But its looking like the real deal more and more.

Nvidia is either one day or a few days away from launching their next big lineup of GPUs. They’re putting Big Maxwell out on to the stage and they figure that it’s such a massive jump in power and performance that it warrants skipping the 8-series lineup entirely, moving to the Geforce GT and GTX 900-series. If it’s anything like the incredible change between the Geforce 200 and Geforce 400 families, this one’s going to be just as big and important. Hit the jump to see what we know so far.

It’s not often that a big company turns to their patents to help with litigation with other companies, but it seems like that’s how things are currently going on at Nvidia, which is taking Samsung to court in a patent lawsuit against Samsung and Qualcomm. The lawsuit is a pretty big deal because unlike the fight between Apple and Samsung over UI design, this is based on graphics technology that Nvidia claims hasn’t been licenses to either of the defendants. It could go much deeper than just paying Apple and fixing the Touchwiz user interface later on.

MSI-GTX-770-Gaming-4GB-1

In case you haven’t noticed, this has been a busy week for hardware releases. Intel’s Haswell-E analysis was  published yesterday and I’m currently on the next one for AMD’s Radeon R9 285. While I was buried in these two, I noticed that I was seeing a big price drop on the Geforce GTX770 Twin Frozr 2GB from MSI. I didn’t get any press notices about this, so I’ll dive in as quickly as possible, as it looks like the promotion will end pretty soon. MSI has clearly been talking to a few online retailers and they’ve apparently worked out a plan to slash the price of the GTX770 Gaming to just R3999.

HP Slatebook 14 (1)

Hewlett-Packard is in a weird sort of limbo today, dancing between Android and Windows platforms like they’re a bunch of hot coals. Although they have a number of interesting products in the form of the Android-powered Slate 7, the Lenovo Yoga-like Pavilion X360 and the insanely priced Spectre 13 X2 (still without a proper digitiser), it’s about to get a whole lot weirder now with the premium-priced Slate 14, a notebook powered by Nvidia’s Tegra hardware and Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. Wut?

Nvidia isn’t saying much about their new Maxwell graphics cards due out this year but apparently they don’t need to – the shipping details of the engineering samples they’re moving around do the job quite well already. According to new shipping manifests from India’s customs offices, Nvidia is now also moving around a GM200 GPU, rumored to be the successor to the GTX Titan. Hit the jump for more details.

So you may be wondering what Nvidia is cooking up next on the GPU front and the answer is, not susprisingly, Maxwell. But it’s not Maxwell as you might know it. Spyshots of an engineering sample of the GTX880 have leaked thanks to Chinese website Gamerspy and a few things can be learned about what we can expect from Maxwell. Bare in mind that this is an engineering sample you’re going to see in the article below – the final GM204 GPU won’t look like this at all, nor will it necessarily be called the GTX880.

With 4K TVs on the horizon and 4K monitors getting cheaper by the month, one of the limiting aspects of the new resolution standard is HDMI 1.4a – the standard that’s been around since 2010, which gave HDMI some new tricks for viewing 3D content. Although the HDMI forum was thinking ahead and allowed the standard to render to resolutions up to 4096 x 2160 at 30Hz, it’s not exactly an ideal solution for desktop use, which requires 60Hz by default.

Nvidia has now announced that they have a workaround in place that will be pushed out to their drivers very soon and it allows for viewing UltraHD 4K content at 60Hz over a regular, old HDMI 1.4a connection. Sounds too good to be true, eh? There’s a big catch to what they’ve done here.

nvidia grid teaser

Nvidia thus far hasn’t allowed for any kind of hands-on tests with GRID, their video streaming technology that gives you a full desktop workspace that is virtualised, hosted up in the cloud somewhere on a server equipped with Nvidia Quadro or Tesla GPUs. These are typically all fitted into a single 2U rackmount server and deployed into a network that has users that either require complete desktop virtualisation or hosted 3D applications, which can be used to save some companies on license fees, energy requirements and desktop space.

But GRID has so many possible applications that it’s mind-boggling how much you can do in this one demo. The server instance that hosts Nvidia’s free GRID demo is on Amazon’s Web Services and the client to access it is designed by VMWare. Instances are limited 24 hours per instance, but you can have multiple goes at it to get an idea if it’ll do anything for you or not. Hit the jump to find out more.

xiaomi tegra tablet

Nvidia’s next successor in the Tegra family is called Tegra K1 and it’s important for the sold reason that it’s the first ever ARM-based product Nvidia’s ever produced that includes graphics hardware that is identical to what they currently have on the desktop market. K1 stands for “Kepler One” and that’s because it includes exactly one Kepler shader unit, comprising of 192 CUDA cores, 4 ROPs, 8 texture units, a 64-bit memory bus and full support for OpenGL, DirectX 11, CUDA 6 any any other API you can think of that runs on regular kepler hardware. The first tablet running Tegra K1 hardware will be the Chinese-designed-and-built Xiaomi MiPad, the company’s first-ever tablet.
