At Hot Chips, Nvidia revealed some of Denver's surprises and showed the first performance test results for this souped-up version of the Tegra K1 processor designed for smartphones, tablets and Chromebooks.
Nvidia add a new member to the Shield family, the new Shield high-performance gaming tablet featuring the Tegra K1 processor based on the Kepler architecture and 192 GPU cores.
The new chipsets allow faster transfer speeds for storage devices and support Intel's forthcoming refreshed Haswell CPUs. Unlike the H97, the Z97 allows overclocking when used with an unlocked Intel processor.
Amazon Web Services and Nvidia are launching cloud services designed to move GPUs beyond high performance computing to SaaS companies.
A new report from Soluto uses data from its massive online database of PC crashes, hangs, and performance metrics to identify the 10 most reliable Windows PCs you can buy today. Surprisingly, a MacBook Pro is at the top of the list. Even more surprising is who's not included.
As the previously lucrative PC market continues to crumble, Nvidia is looking to embrace mobile computing, and it is talking up tablets as replacements for cheap PCs. But given Apple's dominance with the iPad, nothing is certain.
Nvidia believes that high-performance servers will remain the domain of the x86 architecture for the next few years, but that ARM processors, combined with the power of the GPU, will eventually take over.
Nvidia leverages the Kepler architecture and brings out two enterprise-level graphics cards designed specifically to overcome the problems -- such as lag and poor performance -- associated with rendering desktops in the cloud.

The Asus U46SV's 14in. screen could be more vibrant and less shiny; the discrete Nvidia GPU doesn't boost graphics performance as much as expected; and there's more flex in the lid than we'd like. This notebook's saving grace, however, is its excellent battery life.
After showing it off at the recent Computex show, Powercolor has officially released its HD6870X2, which combines two AMD Radeon HD 6870 high-performance GPUs on a single card. It will compete with other dual-GPU boards like the Radeon HD 6990, Nvidia GeForce GTX 590, and the forthcoming Asus Mars II, though according to Fudzilla, it will undercut their pricing by being offered at $449.
Nvidia has released the latest in its range of Tesla GPUs, which are general purpose graphical processors designed to handle supercomputing calculations.The Tesla M2090 GPU, announced by the company on Tuesday, contains 512 Cuda cores that are designed to work in parallel on typical high-performance computing (HPC) tasks, such as the simulation of microscopic biological interactions.
Microsoft and Intel won't be the same powerhouses in mobile that they were in PCs. The new leaders of the computing world will be Google Android and NVIDIA. Learn why.
Intel helped usher in the era of solid state drives for consumer PCs with its X25 lineup, and now the chip giant is readying new SSDs that will easily eclipse the performance of their predecessors.Fudzilla reports that a pair of new drives will be launched next month, and this page on Intel's Website confirms that the new 510 series is designed for the "enthusiast consumer client PC.
Does a solid-state drive make a difference in the performance of Windows 7? In a word: Yes. I've been measuring startup times and disk reads on three Windows 7 PCs to see just how fast they really are. The results are impressive.
