Nvidia is an American technology company, renowned for their GPUs. The company designs graphics processing units for both gaming and professional markets. GPUs unlike CPUs are mainly used to process image/video files and execute rendering tasks at a rapid pace. Architecturally, the CPU is composed of just a few cores with lots of cache memory that can handle a few software threads at a time. In contrast, a GPU is composed of hundreds of cores that can handle thousands of threads simultaneously. Recently, Nvidia has launched their TITAN RTX graphic card which the company claims is world’s most powerful GPU.The Mighty TITAN
The Nvidia TITAN RTX has 576 multi-precision [...]
NVIDIA has released a new video, which showcases the potential of real-time ray tracing (RTX) in Unreal Engine. The video is made in collaboration with Epic Games, NVIDIA, and ILMxLAB. Real-time ray tracing is the next big thing, that has happened to film and game makers. The video is based on the scene adopted from Star Wars: The Last Jedi movie. It has been completely made using Unreal 4 engine. This footage was showcased at Game Developers Conference in San Francisco.
Epic Games Founder and CEO Tim Sweeney said:
Ray tracing is a rendering process typically only associated with high-end offline renderers and hours and hours of computer processing time. Film-quality [...]
Nvidia has announced the new Titav V GPU priced at US $2999. The company claims that the Titan V is “the most powerful PC GPU ever created.”

The modern living room is a smorgasbord of technology. These smart devices running applications will increasingly disrupt the dedicated devices around it.
After being accused by NVIDIA of patent infringement, it’s Samsung now who has accused NVIDIA of infringing several of its semiconductor-related patents, counter-suing after the later one filed a lawsuit against the Korean manufacturer in September.
Samsung filed the lawsuit on Monday and is now seeking penalty for the infringement of his several technical patents. The Korean giant has also accused NVIDIA of misleading advertising when it says ‘Shield’ tablet sports the world’s fastest mobile processor, the Tegra. This was in response to NVIDIA’s accusation against Samsung and rival [...]
Back in 2013, we saw the launch of first end-to-end consumer product: NVIDIA Shield. Now, Nvidia has unveiled the next generation of its Shield gaming hardware.
Later this month, the company will be offering a new Shield Wireless Controller and the Tegra K1-powered Shield Tablet, changing up the formula from the original Shield clamshell portable that was announced at the beginning of last year.
The new NVIDIA Sheild will replace original Shield’s 5-inch screen in favor of a bigger 8-inch, 1080p display. The Shield Tablet is equipped with an 8-inch 1,920 x 1,200 display, a [...]
After bringing in the Nvidia Shield, a macho looking portable gaming device last year, Nvidia is now planning to bring the next version of the device.
