Nvidia's New Shield Console Is Nothing To Get Excited About

Last night at the 2015 Game Developers Conference, Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang said he was announcing three things — a revolutionary television, a game console and a supercomputer. He actually revealed an Android console, the third Nvidia device in two years to carry the Shield name. Yay?



DirectX 12 Could Let You Mix NVIDIA And AMD GPUs In The Same PC

DirectX 12 should be one of the more exciting updates to Microsoft’s multimedia API since DirectX 9. Along with vastly reduced CPU overhead and a focus on giving developers more control, it might be possible to mix GPUs from different vendors in the same machine, if recent rumours are to be believed.

Then And Now: Five Generations Of GeForce Graphics Compared

It may not seem like it, but we’ve been gaming on DirectX 11 graphics hardware for half a decade. The AMD Radeon HD 5870 arrived in September 2009, while Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 480 shipped six months later — a trivial delay considering there were so few DX11 games available at the time.


Nvidia's Shield Gets Its Own Little Slice Of Cloud Gaming

Nvidia’s GRID game streaming service goes live across Shield portables and tablets today, with 20 games available for free remote play. When conditions are perfect, it’s one of the best remote gaming services I’ve tried.


AMD Cuts Over 700 Jobs In The Face Of Declining Revenue

In the context of gaming hardware, AMD is right up there with NVIDIA and you really can’t have a discussion about processors without bringing it up alongside Intel. Change the context to the stock market, however and AMD is just another name… one that isn’t doing as well as the other companies mentioned here.
