The Titan's reduced length makes it an ideal fit for small form factor (SFF) gaming rigs.
Nvidia today unleashed its GeForce GTX Titan graphics card, which is supposed to offer nearly the same performance as its dual-GPU GTX 690 (check out our Titan preview). Equally remarkable is that Nvidia was able to shorten the length of the card by an inch, reduce noise output, and keep temperatures in check. Put it all together and you have a potent card destined for SFF systems, a point that wasn't lost on Digital Storm.
Score up to $150 of in-game credit when you buy a GeForce GTX 660 or higher videocard.
Here's an interesting nugget Nvidia dug up to support its latest upgrade promotion. According to the latest Steam hardware survey, 36 million gamers don't own a strong enough graphics card to play World of Tanks, Hawken, or Planetside 2 at 1920x1080 with High settings. The reason Nvidia chose to focus on those three free-to-play (F2P) play titles is because it's offering $75-$150 of in-game credit when you upgrade to a qualifying GeForce graphics card from a participating vendor.
Nvidia's upcoming GeForce Titan could end up faster than a GeForce GTX 690.
More information is starting to trickle out about Nvidia's GeForce Titan, an upcoming consumer-grade graphics card based on the company's Kepler GK110 silicon. Initial reports stated it would offer around 85 percent of the performance of a dual-GPU GeForce GTX 690, which is mighty impressive for a single-GPU part, but it could actually end being even faster than Nvidia's flagship graphics card.
Nvidia is supposedly readying a GeForce Titanium video card for February.
It's been almost a year since Nvidia released its GeForce GTX 680 graphics card, still the company's flagship single-GPU Kepler part (GK104). Now it appears Nvidia is nearly ready to launch a GK110-based card for the consumer market, one that would essentially be a GeForce GTX 680 Ultra, but might be named GeForce Titan or Titanium so that it stands out. Perhaps not coincidentally, the fastest supercomputer in the world is the Cray Titan.
Meet the world's first 2U four-way GPU server system.
AVADirect, a boutique system builder based in Ohio, claims it's the first system builder on planet Earth to offer 2U server systems with support for up to four GPUs or Tesla graphics cards. Having that much potential GPU horsepower crammed into a 2U server solution is supposedly something the industry has never seen, and it comes courtesy of Asus with its new ESC4000 G2 Black 2U server platform.
New graphics drivers from AMD boosts performance in Far Cry 3 and other games.
Ever since Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) ditched its monthly schedule for Catalyst driver updates, it's been a big guessing game for Radeon graphics card owners as to when a new release would be available. If you fall into that category, then you'll be pleased to know that there's a new driver update available to download, Catalyst 13.1. The latest drivers bring about the usual assortment of bug fixes and performance improvements across a variety of titles.
Dual Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition GPUs under a single hood? Yes, please!
Having trouble with dropped framerates on your 30-inch monitor? That's not likely to be an issue with the Asus ROG Ares II, a limited edition graphics card that muscles through games with TWO Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition GPUs and 6GB of GDDR5 memory. That's a metric ton of pixel pushing power, and remarkably, the Ares II is a dual-slot graphics card, so it doesn't take up any more space than a high-end single-GPU card.
Sapphire's latest AMD graphics card sports two fans and dust repellant bearings.
The Mayan calendar tells us the end of the world is nigh (wait until you see what Google has in store), but that didn't stop Sapphire from launching another graphics card. If the world really does come to an end tomorrow, the 'Sapphire HD 7870 XT with Boost' will be the company's last product ever released, and on paper, it doesn't look like a bad way to be remembered.
Nvidia's latest drivers boost performance by up to 38 percent.
Fresh out of the oven and topped with WHQL certification is Nvidia's new 310.70 driver package for Windows. Nvidia's latest drivers deliver big performance gains in some situations, including up to 38 percent better framerates in Far Cry 3 (for GeForce GTX 680 graphics card owners). It also serves up double-digit percentage gains in several other titles, according to the release highlights.
Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) has started talking about its upcoming Radeon HD 8000M GPUs, codenamed "Solar System," which it plans to fully detail next month at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. There will be at least four laptops at CES running the new GPUs, which are said to support DirectX 11.1, OpenGL 4.3, and OpenCL 2.1 programming interfaces.
