This is where the graphics industry is going
We had a few dozen meetings at CES 2015 with many interesting people and close friends over the last week and we came to a conclusion that 4K and Virtual Reality will play a big role in 2015 and the future of computer graphics.
Runs 4K at 60 FPS too
We had a chance to spend some time with a few Tegra X1 developer boards and see a number of demos by Nvidia and see what is going to come in the next few months.
Maxwell and beyond
Last summer Nvidia said it would start licensing GPU technology for mobile SoCs and with Maxwell it could go all-in.
Erista is the Tegra X1
Nvidia is starting the year aggressively. It just introduced a chip called Tegra X1 and this is what we used to know as Errista. The X probably comes from the fact that Erista is the son of Logan and guess what Logan in the X man. It is a 20nm chip, Nvidia’s first.
Kim Jong-Un is an AMD fanboy
Nvidia’s corporate network was hacked earlier this month, but the extent of the breach is unclear.
Post-CES launch slated for January 22
Nvidia is expected to launch the mid-range Geforce GTX 960 next month.
Spiral 2 form factor prototypes ready
Project Ara is a modular smartphone platform that got us interested in DIY phones and it looks like Ara is getting a few more interesting SoCs for its reference hardware platform.
Tablet software upgrade 2.1
Nvidia definitely wants to keep its supporters at its toes. Nvidia Shield tablet is the only tablet outside the Nexus series to get Android 5.0 and guess what, Nvidia just announced 5.0.1 as well.
Investigating patent infringement claims
The United States International Trade Commission (ITC) is investigating complaints filed by Samsung against Nvidia.
Same optimizations but WHQL certified
Following the recently released Geforce 347.09 Beta Game Ready driver, Nvidia has now updated its driver list with the WHQL version of the same driver.
