Just a few years ago, no one would have guessed that tablets would become the next great gaming platform. Now tablets are about to get the same technologies that make PC and console games so immersive. Our CEO, Jen-Hsun Huang, showed footage of “Battlefield 3” running on a mobile version of our Kepler GPU at… Read More
After a grueling five-day battle, three teams emerged as winners in the first annual Asia Student Cluster Challenge (ACS13). One even beat the power-efficiency record set by the current Green500 leader. Their secret sauce: NVIDIA Tesla K20 accelerators.
Swiss National Supercomputing Center Plans to Scale Application Performance Heights With NVIDIA GPUs
Ask any weatherman: Predicting the weather is not easy. Throw in Switzerland’s many diverse microclimates and topographical features and the challenge is even greater. The Swiss National Supercomputing Center (CSCS), one of Europe’s top institutions for computational research, plans to change that by applying a petaflop of GPU-accelerated processing power to the problem. CSCS is… Read More
You’ve won the most prestigious race for electric-drive motorcycles three years in a row. Now what? Do you improve battery cooling? Make more efficient motor controllers? Refine the aerodynamics? MotoCzysz, an engineering firm that designs, builds and races custom-made electric motorcycles, takes on all these challenges and more in their ongoing quest to be the best… Read More
Since we launched the Tesla K20 GPU accelerators at the Supercomputing 2012 (SC12) show in November, researchers have been eagerly waiting to get their hands on them. To benchmark the new Kepler GPUs on real-world scientific applications, we offered a number of researchers using our last-generation Fermi GPUs early access to the new Tesla K20… Read More
PC gaming enthusiasts are demanding customers. Just ask Frank Azor at Dell’s Alienware unit. Or Wallace Santos at Maingear. Or Kelt Reeves at Falcon Northwest. I know this breed well. As a co-founder and CEO of BFG – and an avid gamer – I quickly learned the most demanding customers always have time for someone with something special to offer.
Jan-Kees Buenen pulls an iPhone out of his pocket. “Everyone talks about networks,” says Buenen, a Dutchman with an unruly mop of curly brown hair. And thanks to smartphones, we all carry around these networks with us in the form of contact lists and call logs… not to mention Facebook and LinkedIn. “But who has seen his own network? Who even has an idea of what his network looks like?”
We promised that the Kepler-based NVIDIA Tesla K20 GPU – first unveiled in May at the GPU Technology Conference (GTC) – would be the highest-performance processor the HPC industry has ever seen. One reason: support for a technology called “Dynamic Parallelism,” that can speed up a wide range of tasks. Dynamic Parallelism allows the GPU… Read More
We’re in Amsterdam this week at IBC, showcasing the power that our latest GPU technologies provide broadcasters, film studios and video post-production pros. More than 50,000 attendees at this annual conference on the creation, management and delivery of electronic media and entertainment content will be able to check out our new NVIDIA Quadro and Tesla… Read More
We said the Kepler architecture-based NVIDIA Tesla K20 GPU would be the highest performance processor the HPC industry has ever seen when we unveiled it at the GPU Technology Conference in May. But recent performance tests on real-world scientific applications show that the forthcoming GPU easily surpasses even our highest expectations. This GPU simply rocks!… Read More
Since its launch in June as the world’s fastest gaming GPU, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680M GPU has won rave reviews. Now MSI has become our latest OEM partner to launch gaming notebooks using GeForce GTX 680M GPUs – and they’re a couple of the best looking and best playing ones out there. Both the… Read More
