As its name implies, PhysX is a physics engine which enables real-time physics effects in games with the assistance of CUDA. This week, we cover PhysX's history, its application in today's games, and the performance advantage of CUDA in PhysX. Read on to learn more about this breath-taking technology.
NVIDIA has brought its latest GTX 200 GPU architecture to its professional workstation line of Quadro graphics cards. Included in this refresh is an interesting Quadro CX model that promises to use CUDA to improve encoding speed in Adobe Premiere Pro CS4. Obviously, we had to try it ourselves and here's our experience.
The Radeon HD 4870 from ATI has been around awhile now and it's beginning to lose its wow factor to NVIDIA's recent offerings. Thankfully vendors like Sapphire are breathing new life to it with its factory-overclocked Radeon HD 4870 1GB Toxic Edition. Find out if it succeeds in doing so.
In our previous article, we've already offered an introduction into the world of parallel computing, the benefits it'll bring and the obstacles it has to overcome. Now, we take a look closer look at one of the technologies that is powering it. CUDA, from NVIDIA.
Tapping into the immense power of the GPU for general purpose computing is only in its nascent stage. But with OpenCL ratified and ready to bring a common standard to this field, get set for more developments in GPU computing. Read on to find out why it matters.
Shrouded behind the hype surrounding the new GeForce GTX 295 is the GeForce GTX 285. Essentially a 55nm refresh of the GTX 280, NVIDIA says it will provide up to 10% more performance while consuming up to 20W less power. Sounds too good to be true? Join us for the full revelation.
The graphics card has certainly come a long way. Join us as we take a trip down memory lane to the humble beginnings of the 3D graphics card, to the days when 3dfx still existed and NVIDIA cards still had a sensible nomenclature.
Welcome readers to take two of NVIDIA's new flagship card, the GeForce GTX 295. This is the full review, no holds barred. Read this to know exactly how it measures up to the competition, and the answer to the question on everyone's mind, "Can it play Crysis on maximum image quality settings?"
