  • Nvidia: Moore’s law will die without GPUs

    Nvidia’s chief scientist, Bill Dally, has warned that the long-established Moore’s Law is in danger of joining phlogiston theory on the list of superseded laws, unless the CPU business embraces parallel processing on a much broader scale.

    nVIDIA releases OpenGL4.0 drivers

    ForceWare 197.44 on Windows, and version 195.36.07.04 on Linux platforms. Interestingly only Fermi based products get OpenGL 4.0 & GLSL4.0 support as for now. :sarcastic

    GF104 Nvidia mainstream card real

    Summer launch, taped out

    We learned some basics about Nvidia's first new card to launch after Geforce GTX 480 and GTX 470 cards. The new card is codenamed GF104 and it is currently taped out, works and performance looks good.

    The chip is much smaller than recently launched Fermi-based Geforce GTX 480 and 470 and our sources expect that this product might be the next “8800 GT”.

    Items being given away (4 winners):

    1 x Palit GT 240 1GB Video Card (1 winner)
    2 x Palit T-Shirts (Mines Bigger Than Yours!) (2 winners)

    Nvidia Graphics Card Pushes the Edge

    Nvidia on Friday introduced its fastest graphics cards to date, which will be able to play back 3D movies on PCs and bring more realistic images to games.

    The new graphics cards, the GeForce GTX 480 and GTX 470, are based on Nvidia's new graphics-processing-unit architecture called Fermi, which was announced in September. The GTX 480 has 480 processing cores on one GPU, while the GTX 470 has 448 cores.

    NVIDIA Drops Their Open-Source Driver

    NVIDIA's open-source Linux efforts as it concerns their GPU support have historically been minimal. The xf86-video-nv driver has been around that provides very basic 2D acceleration and a crippled set of features besides that (no proper RandR 1.2/1.3, KMS, power management, etc) while the code has also been obfuscated to try to protect their intellectual property. However, NVIDIA has decided to deprecate this open-source driver of theirs. No, NVIDIA is not working on a new driver. No, NVIDIA is not going to support the Nouveau project.
