NVIDIA: MacBook Air, Tegra ultrabooks 'hollow out' cheap PCs

03/23, 12:55pm

NVIDIA sees Apple and itself hurting cheap PCs

NVIDIA's mobile lead Rene Haas in a conversation published overnight saw both his own company and Apple squeezing out traditional low-end notebooks. He explained to CNET that, just as Apple's MacBook Air had mostly killed the need for a "middle" system between the ultraportable and the faster MacBook Pro, NVIDIA would serve both Tegra-based mobile devices at the low end and graphics-heavy, performance-based notebooks on top. It was the stereotypical Windows notebook, which didn't have any of the performance edges or the portability, that was most at risk.

NVIDIA intros GeForce 600M with Kepler, touts ultrabook cred

03/22, 10:50am

NVIDIA fills out GeForce 600M line

NVIDIA has paired up the GeForce GTX 680 launched Thursday with its first notebook graphics sharing the same Kepler architecture. The GeForce GT 640M LE, GT 640M, GT 650M, and GTX 660M all use the new 28-nanometer building process both to be smaller and cooler than their ancestors as well as up the core count and clock speeds. They peak at 384 cores on the 640M, 650M and 660M and up to either 735MHz or 850MHz on the 660M, depending on whether or not it's using GDDR5 or DDR3 memory.

NVIDIA to replace Fermi graphcis with Kepler in 2011

09/21, 3:15pm

NVIDIA Kepler to be 3X more efficient than Fermi

As part of its GPU Technology Conference, NVIDIA today provided a brief glimpse at its future graphics architecture, Kepler. The design will replace the Fermi core of today's GeForce 400 series and should calculate about five gigaflops of per watt, or more than three times the 1.5 gigaflops of Fermi hardware. Both the redesign as well as a shrink in the assembly process from 40 nanometers to 28 should reduce the need for extra cooling and power in notebooks and other hardware in tight spaces.
