As part of an ongoing strategy to get its chipsets into more devices, nVidia has launched Shield, its own set-top box games console based on the new Android TV operating system. What’s more, it supports 4K media playback at 60fps.
Consumer-grade GPUs are getting faster and, crucially, they're using less power
This article was first published two years ago so some of the information is old. But it's a question that keeps getting asked, and it's a great article - so we thought we'd publish it again. How do you choose between consumer and pro graphics cards? Low cost and high performance are compelling with the lower-end products, but compatability and support are better with the professional versions. Oren Payton explores this in depth
Just in case anyone was in doubt that the 4K revolution is happening, Nvidia has just announced that its much anticipated Tegra 4 mobile chipset will include "4K Ultra-High-Def video support"
The Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee is home to the worlds fastest supercomputer nicknamed "Titan", Nvidia created the chips that power Titan and have now released a graphics card using the same chip.

To pretty much everyone's surprise, Qualcomm said yesterday that they too were going to release a 4K video-capable chipset too
