Nvidia's Quadro RTX series continued growing today with the addition of the Quadro RTX 4000 professional graphics card powered by the company's most recent Turing architecture. Credit: Nvidia The Quadro RTX 4000 serves as the midrange model in Nvidia's Quadro RTX family, which is currently comprised of the Quadro RTX 8000, RTX 6000 and RTX 5000. Similar to the GeForce GTX 2080 and the Quadro RTX 5000, the new Quadro RTX 4000 is built around Nvidia's Turing TU104 silicon that's produced under TSMC's 12nm FinFET manufacturing process. However, Nvidia has disabled a couple of Streaming Multiprocessors to meet the target shader count. ray tracing applications. Unfortunately, Nvidia hasn't yet revealed the graphics card's operating frequency. The chipmaker also outfitted the Quadro RTX 4000 with 8GB of GDDR6 memory on a 256-bit memory bus. Nvidia says the Quadro RTX 4000 can deliver up to 7.1 TFLOPS of single precision (FP32) performance, 6 GigaRays/sec of … [Read more...] about Nvidia Launches Quadro RTX 4000 GPU With 2,304 CUDA Cores
In September, Nvidia unleashed its new generation of graphics cards. I like the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti despite the chipmaker coupling a price increase with its impressive jump in rendering power. But, at that time, it was impossible to determine the long-term potential for any RTX card. That’s because no games have supported its namesake feature: RTX, also known as real-time ray tracing. This new gaming technology physically renders light behavior to create gorgeous scenes with less effort from developers. It seems like a potential leap for visuals, but I just don’t know if it matters … yet. But that could change soon thanks to Electronic Arts. Nvidia has confirmed that it is launching new GeForce drivers that support ray tracing in Battlefield V. The World War II shooter debuts November 20 — although you can start playing it now if you have EA Access or Origin Access. And Nvidia says that these drivers support RTX and the DirectX R graphics API that Microsoft … [Read more...] about Battlefield V is getting ray tracing after Nvidia RTX driver update
Greetings, Arsians! Courtesy of our friends at TechBargains, we have another round of deals to share. Today's list is headlined by a deal on Nvidia's Shield TV, which is currently down to $140. That's a $40 discount, tied for the lowest price we've seen for the 4K media streamer. The Shield TV has been around for a few years, but it's still the box to own if you want Android TV. Nvidia continues to support the device with regular updates and the hardware remains more than fast enough to keep everything smooth. While Roku and Amazon offer 4K HDR streamers for far less, the Shield is more flexible when it comes to local file support, with a couple of USB ports for connecting external peripherals and the ability to serve as its own Plex server. It works with both the Google Assistant and Alexa—the latter requires a pre-existing Alexa device—and can be paired with a tuner to show live TV. The Shield also works like a pseudo game console with Nvidia's GeForce Now streaming … [Read more...] about Dealmaster: Take $40 off a Nvidia Shield TV 4K media streamer
Most people don't think of their graphics cards as high-value targets. What could attackers want to do with the chip that squeezes as many frames as possible out of a game, movie, or other form of media? But tech companies have become increasingly reliant on GPUs to ease computational workloads, as well as rendering graphics. This expansion of responsibilities and the GPU's ascension to nigh-ubiquity make Nvidia's products appealing targets.UC Riverside explained in its announcement of the side-channel attacks: "Web browsers use GPUs to render graphics on desktops, laptops, and smart phones. GPUs are also used to accelerate applications on the cloud and data centers. Web graphics can expose user information and activity. Computational workloads enhanced by the GPU include applications with sensitive data or algorithms that might be exposed by the new attacks. [...] GPUs are usually programmed using application programming interfaces, or APIs, such as OpenGL. OpenGL is accessible … [Read more...] about Et Tu, GPU?

Best answer: NVIDIA is phasing out the Shield TV Pro, which offers 500GB of internal storage. It's still available for sale, but NVIDIA is moving forward with the 16GB Shield TV, which is just as capable for all your streaming and gaming needs with software updates offering improved support for mounting external drives as internal storage. Ask yourself if 500GB is worth $100 Between the NVIDIA Shield TV and the outgoing NVIDIA Shield TV Pro, there's really only one differentiating factor — well, two if you include the price difference. The Shield TV Pro was marketed as a Home Media Server and included 500GB of internal storage for storing all your media for Plex or Kodi — but it also adds $100 to the final price. Meanwhile, if you forgo the gaming controller bundle, you can get a base NVIDIA Shield TV for just $179, with a bundle currently offered on Amazon that includes the new Amazon Echo Dot (3rd gen) as a free gift. With the way that most popular media streaming apps … [Read more...] about Which storage size should you get for NVIDIA Shield TV?
