A Look At The GeForce GTX 1080's PCB And The Chips That Literally Power It

Recently NVIDIA took the wraps off of its Pascal-powered GTX 1080, which is kicking butt in both benchmarks and wallet destruction. Now it’s time to look deeper at the actual hardware — and I’m not talking about the GPU. We can do better than that.

NVIDIA Throws Money At The Fallout 4 Mod Train

Modding is already part and parcel of the Fallout community. It’s the lifeblood of Bethesda’s fanbase in one sense, with modders putting as much time into their creations as some of the developers themselves.

But now NVIDIA is getting involved in the scene as well, offering up $USD40,000 for some of the best Fallout 4 creations from the community.

Here's The Full Specs For Nvidia's GeForce GTX 1070

Nvidia’s second Pascal gaming graphics card is finally breaking cover, after only a quick mention at the launch of the top-spec GeForce GTX 1080. It’ll be out two weeks after its slightly more powerful counterpart, but its significantly lower price should make it especially attractive to anyone gaming at sub-4K resolutions.

And The First Australian NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Price Is A Lot

Most of the specifications and performance-enhancing features of NVIDIA’s Pascal GPUs, the GTX 1070 and 1080, are largely known by now. And we also know what the American prices of those chips will be.

But nobody knows precisely how much Aussies will be charged for the king of GPUs. And as it turns out, the answer is quite a lot.

Here's What You Need To Know About The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080

Today’s the day. Reviews of Nvidia’s newest, greatest and most powerful graphics card, the GeForce GTX 1080, are about to hit the ‘net. But there’s also more to this card than its raw performance data. Here’s what’s going on under the hood of Nvidia’s big, bold attempt at cornering 4K and VR gaming in 2016.

Here's That DOOM Video, But In-Game This Time

When NVIDIA showed off their GTX 1070 and 1080 not too long ago, they brought some help to show off just how powerful the card really was. Part of that help arrived in the form of DOOM, running at super-high frame rate.

The only video available was what people recorded from the audience, either on their own cameras, phones, or footage from the livestream. But NVIDIA’s published two versions of the in-game footage today, ahead of DOOM’s launch tomorrow.

NVIDIA Is Making The Ultimate Photo Mode For Every Game

Gamers have become pretty accustomed to the functionality of tools like GeForce Experience and Raptr for years now. Press a button and you can record gameplay without much of an overhead. Optimise your image settings. Update drivers. Run games at inordinately high resolutions.

The simplicity is cool. The world and art of in-game photography has still been buried behind SweetFX profiles, custom Cheat Engine tables, INI hacks and more for a while. But NVIDIA is trying to change that.

Nvidia's Latest 'Most Advanced Graphics Card' Is Faster And Cheaper Than The Last One

Last year Nvidia introduced the top-of-the-line GeForce GTX Titan X, a $US1,000 ($1,358) beast of a graphics card that blew just about everything else out of the water. Well forget that old thing. The newly-announced GTX 1080 is nearly twice as powerful for several hundred dollars less.

Nvidia's New GeForce GTX 1080 Is 'The Largest Processor Endeavour In The History Of Humanity'

Nvidia has a new graphics card, and it is doubling down on virtual reality as the reason for hardcore gamers to upgrade their rigs. Several. Billion. Dollars went into R&D for this card — it’s faster than two GTX 980 cards in SLI, and it’s even faster than the Titan X as well.

The new GeForce GTX 1080 also integrates new physics-based audio support, physically-accurate object manipulation using VR hand controllers, and a whole other bunch of goodies to entice you to part with your hard-earned dollars.

Doom Will Support Vulkan, With Massive Performance Gains

The Vulkan API is a simpler, more streamlined graphics processing driver for game developers, allowing more basic access to graphics components and cutting out the middle-man of older APIs like DirectX 11 and OpenGL.

It provides theoretically significant performance gains but it’s still in its infancy in terms of in-game support from actual games that you can play right now. Today, we found out that id Software’s new Doom will support Vulkan, and the extra frames it makes possible will be useful for the game’s ridiculously fast twitch deathmatch multiplayer.
