NVIDIA, in a press event to kick off CES 2014, just announced the TEGRA K1, the world’s first 192-core “Super Chip.” We’re talking mobile architecture that’s as good as PC architecture.
At this point, we still don’t have devices that are running the processor, but we do have a bunch of demos. As you can imagine, the K1 is impressive on a number of levels. If you were looking for the ultimate gaming chip for mobile (or any platform for that matter), this would be it. (more…)
We’re live at NVIDIA!
Welcome to CES 2014, friends. The kick off to this week of electronics madness is NVIDIA, for the second time in two years. We still aren’t sure what we’ll see, but on stage we can already see an Android device mirrored to a TV, if that means anything.
We are working on embedding the live stream of the event, but if we can’t, you can watch along with us here. Otherwise, we’ll be live blogging below with pictures and just as much fun. This should be a great event, just like last year’s.
Ready for CES? (more…)
Hopeful gamers looking to score a deal this holiday season should look at NVIDIA’s website, as the company has marked down the price of SHIELD by $50, bringing the grand total to $249.99. If you caught the DL Show on Wednesday, I personally claimed that SHIELD was the biggest bust of 2013, for the sole reason that it was priced too highly to catch anyone’s interest, and as a result it seems to have sold poorly.

This morning, NVIDIA announced a new software update for its mobile Android-powered game console, SHIELD. Over the course of its life, SHIELD has been receiving updates left and right it seems, from big bug fixes to major feature additions, such as the Gamepad Mapper and Console Mode update. In this newest update, Gamestream users will see a major improvement in graphics quality, as you can now stream your PC games in full 1080p at 60 FPS in Console Mode when using Ethernet. In addition, WiFi PC streaming has also been improved, allowing gamers to see more 60 FPS performance as well. (more…)

The deal changes depending on retailer, so we’ve listed a few out for you below. (more…)
In this recently released real-time strategy game called Zombie Tycoon 2, which was directly ported from the PlayStation 3 and PS Vita, you must choose your side in the zombie apocalypse. There is the “apprentice-gone-rogue Orville Tycoon and his army of heavy-duty zombies – or – his revenge-hungry mentor, Professor Brainhov, and his rioting mass of twitchy brain-munchers.” Whichever side you do choose, you can bet that there will be plenty of brain eating going on.

NVIDIA announced the Tegra Note, produced by EVGA, back in September. The device features a Tegra 4 processor, as well as a 7″ 1280 x 800 display; lower than what the new Nexus 7 sports for resolution at 1920 x 1200, but the Nexus 7 is also priced a bit higher and the Tegra Note has a couple of other added bonuses. NVIDIA finally announced official pricing and availability for the tablet this morning, which will begin November 19 for just $199.99. (more…)
Back in September, NVIDIA introduced Tegra Note, a tablet platform and device to show consumers that a powerhouse unit with great features doesn’t need to cost much money. The tablet features a 7″ HD display, Tegra 4 quad-core processor, 5MP rear-facing camera, full stylus, as well as stereo speakers. It’s a great little device, and comes with an even better suggested retail price of just $200. NVIDIA took to the Web recently to show off a few ways to get some major use out of the Note’s Stylus, so have a look down below. (more…)
