Nvidia’s Ampere is more likely to be post-Volta than post-Turing gaming GPUs

The Nvidia Ampere GPUs may represent the next generation of graphics architecture from the big green GPU making machine, but will they be monstrous professional-level chips, or the sort of silicon shinies to make all our games look awesome? We’re mostly betting on the former, and I’m speculating that would make Ampere the logical successor to Volta rather than a gaming design like Turing. read more

AMD and Nvidia end 2019 going head-to-head on FEM physics

AMD and then, by way of an ‘us too’ announcement, Nvidia, have announced brand new game physics middleware to deliver unprecedented levels of physical material interaction using the finite element method (FEM), if you’re an AMD bod, or finite element model (also FEM) if you’re an Nvidia dev. The two GPU giants are chasing the same physics, they just can’t agree on the exact unpacking of the acronym. But thankfully the FEM physics thing isn’t anything as grubby as it might have sounded to an industry where the Dead or Alive franchise exists. read more

Nvidia hopes to dismiss lawsuit claiming it misled investors about cryptocurrency cash

Nvidia is seeking a California federal judge throw out claims that it misled investors regarding revenue from the massive crypto-boom, and subsequent bust, over the course of 2017/18. The company claims that analysts and investors “cherry-picked information” regarding its revenues – moments prior to the company’s share price plummeting – and that it was upfront about the risks associated with the temperamental mining gold rush. read more

Nvidia says two thirds of its desktop GPU sales are ray tracing graphics cards

Speaking at the Credit Suisse Annual Technology Conference, Nvidia’s Colette Kress has stated that two of every three desktop graphics cards it sells now come with ray tracing enabled. That sounds like a ringing endorsement of Nvidia’s ray tracing strategy from the PC gaming public, despite there previously being a little reticence about signing up to this expensive new generation of graphics cards. read more

Nvidia and Rockstar release fixes for Red Dead Redemption 2 PC problems

Time to get back on the horse GeForce gamers, because Red Dead Redemption 2 has got a new update and Nvidia has released a fresh hotfix to fix the Vulkan version of the game stalling on PCs using either four-core or six-core CPUs. I mean, that’s quite a wide range of computers and a quad-core processor certainly ain’t an oddity in these many-core times of ours. Maybe the Red Dead devs are all sitting on eight-core CPUs thinking that’s how the PC gaming world at large lives… so out of touch. read more

Jen-Hsun Huang claims Nvidia’s just invented the gaming laptop

It’s not unusual for Nvidia’s CEO, Jen-Hsun Huang, to be… shall we say… over-enthusiastic? But in yesterday’s earnings call about its Q3 financial results he’s been making quite the claims. Not just about the next-gen consoles having to “stutter-step and include ray tracing” because of Nvidia, but that Nvidia has just “created a brand-new game platform: notebook PC gaming.” read more
