With the arrival of Mantle and the more recent announcement of DirectX 12, PC gaming has been pushed back into the limelight. Timely then, was the PAX East panel “The Incredible Future of PC Gaming”, which saw Star Citizen head man Chris Roberts, along with representatives from NVIDIA and Oculus VR, give their perspectives on where the platform is heading.
Yeah, this is little more than an advertisement for Nvidia tech. But the clip also gives us a look at Watch Dogs running on the PC, and it looks great.
Microsoft hinted that a new iteration of its gaming and multimedia API DirectX was on the cards earlier this month and last Thursday, it followed up on said hinting with the announcement of DirectX 12. If you’re not sure if your graphics card will support it, how it compares to AMD’s Mantle or if you should be interested at all, you’ve come to the right place.
Out with the old, in with the new, as the saying goes. Except when it comes to computer hardware, when properly maintained parts can enjoy a new life inside a home server or media centre. But for your main machine, you eventually have to face the upgrade monster, especially if your GPU vendor decides it doesn’t want anything to do with your aging graphics card.
Marking the introduction of its Maxwell architecture, Nvidia has targeted AMD’s $150 Radeon R7 265 with the new GeForce GTX 750 Ti, a card that promises to be more than another rebadge. The GTX 750 Ti’s GM107 is meant to make Nvidia’s 28nm design process as efficient as possible by splitting Kepler’s 192-core streaming multiprocessor (SM) into four blocks with each block featuring its own control logic.
You may have heard of “G-SYNC”, NVIDIA’s hardware and software-based solution to the phenomenon of screen tearing in PC games. While NVIDIA plans to partner with manufacturers to build this technology directly into displays, it is possible to grab a DIY kit from NVIDIA and install the gear yourself.
Last week, during the annual Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Huawei, Chinese hardware maker and subject of international security concerns, showed off its newest toy — the Huawei TRON. According to the Chinese media, the TRON can supposedly play PS3 games. PS3 games that have been set for the Huawei TRON.
You might remember late last year that NVIDIA announced something called “G-SYNC”. The basic idea is that a piece of additional hardware is built into your monitor, which will allow your NVIDIA graphics card to display games without visual stuttering (or at least, improve the situation immensely). If you’re still a little vague on how it all works, this two-minute clip should clear things up.
The Tegra K1 is Nvidia’s newest super chip. The mobile processor packs a whopping 192 CUDA cores — a Nvidia first. Here you can see it in action with Epic’s Unreal Engine 4.
