    Last week, Moor Insights & Strategy analysts Anshel Sag, Chris Wilder, Karl Freund and I attended NVIDIA GTC 2018, what I consider the industry leader’s premier GPU developer conference. If you’re unfamiliar with GTC, I wrote a preview here. As per usual with these events, the main keynote, given by CEO Jensen Huang, was the time to catch the biggest announcements coming out of the conference. More importantly, the event was also an opportunity to meet with NVIDIA developers, customers, press and senior leaders.
  • Deep Learning Portends 'Sea Change' for Oil and Gas Sector

    Enterprise Tech ^ | February 2, 2018 | Tiffany Trader and Doug Black
    The billowing compute and data demands that spurred the oil and gas industry to be the largest commercial users of high-performance computing are now propelling the competitive sector to deploy the latest AI technologies. Beyond the requirement for accurate and speedy seismic and reservoir simulation, oil and gas operations face torrents of sensor, geolocation, weather, drilling and seismic data. Just the sensor data alone from one off-shore rig can accrue to hundreds of terabytes of data annually, but most of this remains unanalyzed, dark data. Why? Because there just isn't enough compute capacity to crunch it all. A collaboration between...

    Intel finished 2017 on a high note with revenue that handily topped expectations - especially in its key data center group, according to quarterly financial results issued Thursday afternoon. The company said it expects a $1.3 billion windfall in 2018 from the federal tax overhaul approved last month and said it will give nearly half of it to shareholders through a 10 percent increase in the company's dividend. The news sent Intel's shares up 3.75 percent in after-hours trading, to $47 a share. Intel's stock remains near its highest-point since the dot-com era.

    There is a new wave of coders and hackers looking to upend the entire internet, signaling the start of a brand new space race. No, this isn’t an episode of HBO’s Silicon Valley, this is actually happening. Currently, the internet is built by large centralized services including server owners, data managers, cloud providers, search engines, telecommunication companies, and social media websites. And these entities are beginning to expand their reach. Internet security and net neutrality are quickly becoming hot topics as more people become aware of the dangers of centralization. And for good reason. Google, Amazon, and Facebook are racing...

    Bugs can be exploited to extract info, potentially insert rootkits Intel today admitted its Management Engine (ME), Server Platform Services (SPS), and Trusted Execution Engine (TXE) are vulnerable to multiple worrying security flaws, based on the findings of external security experts.The firmware-level bugs allow logged-in administrators, and malicious or hijacked high-privilege processes, to run code beneath the operating system to spy on or meddle with the computer completely out of sight of other users and admins. The holes can also be exploited by network administrators, or people masquerading as admins, to remotely infect machines with spyware and invisible rootkits, potentially.Meanwhile,...
  • This Dirt Cheap Stock Could be Investors' Best Way to Bet on Virtual Reality

    06/22/2016 7:50:45 PM PDT · by BenLurkin · 18 replies
    Demand for virtual reality is expected to surge in the years ahead. Research firm IDC expects that more than 110 million VR headsets will be sold in 2020, up from 9.6 million headsets in 2016. Investors looking to add exposure to the trend have a number of stocks to choose from, including both NVIDIA (NASDAQ:NVDA) and Facebook (NASDAQ:FB). But while those companies may offer attractive upside, their shares certainly aren't cheap, trading for about 40- and 69-times trailing earnings, respectively. Those investors looking for more of a bargain might consider AMD (NASDAQ: AMD). The computing giant seems likely to play...

    Nvidia's Ansel is designed to give you all the tools you need to create artistic in-game screenshots of your favorite scenes. Take control of the camera, change the lighting, add a vignette, or snap a 360-degree image. Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang revealed a surprising new addition to the company’s portfolio of graphics technologies. The company founder talked about a new form of artwork that has emerged from the gaming community. Several digital artists have made a name for themselves by capturing breathtaking images of video game scenes. Huang said that some of those artists are able to capture such imagery...

    The Verge ^ | 2/4/2016 | By Sam Byford
    Oculus founder Palmer Luckey has poured water on the idea of his Rift virtual reality headset supporting the Mac by saying that Apple doesn't make any computers powerful enough to run it. "That is up to Apple and if they ever release a good computer we will do it," Luckey tells ShackNews when asked about Mac support. "It just boils down to the fact that Apple doesn’t prioritize high-end GPUs. You can buy a $6,000 Mac Pro with the top of the line AMD FirePro D700, and it still doesn’t match our recommended spec." Apple's high-end Mac Pro computers come...

    Nvidia Corp. has recalled about 88,000 of its Shield tablets sold in the U.S. and Canada because the lithium-ion battery can overheat and become a fire hazard. The products recalled are, specifically, eight-inch tablets sold between July 2014 and July 2015 at places such as Amazon.com, BestBuy.com and GameStop. The model numbers, seen are on the left-side edge of the devices, P1761, P1761W and P1761WX. Nvidia didn’t say how many...
  • Gamers Should Be Worried About Windows 10 Automatic Updates

    forbes ^ | Erik Kain
    As Forbes contributor Gordon Kelly reports, the problem revolves around a conflict between automatic updates and Nvidia graphics card updates using Nvidia’s ‘Nvidia GeForce Experience’—a handy tool for all Nvidia GPU owners. Basically Microsoft has taken control away from users, and made all updates mandatory—including driver updates. This is a decision meant to increase security and stability across the PC user base, but it comes at a cost. Users are reporting problems with multi-monitor setups, dual-card configurations (SLI) and PCs not booting properly, setting off Windows 10 emergency recovery mode. More issues are likely to arise. In other words, for...

    The first manned missions to Earth's satellite began in 1969 with Apollo 11. Just a few years later, conspiracies sprouted up claiming that potentially each of the six lunar landing crews and every one of the 12 Apollo astronauts who walked on the moon had in fact participated in an elaborate ruse. To the conspiracists, it may never have happened -- or didn't happen like NASA said it did -- and oh by the way, we duped the Russians into losing the space race. Voxel global illumination, however, proves them wrong, says Nvidia. The technique, which the new GTX 970...

    SNIP We now know the source of the mysterious crop circle that turned up in the small town of Chualar, about two hours south of San Francisco. And it turns out a lot of the speculation about what the viral photo might be was correct. NBC Bay Area was originally tipped off by an anonymous source, who said Silicon Valley chipmaker Nvidia was behind the crop circle that was first spotted toward the end of 2013 by a photographer named Julie Belanger. We now have confirmation from the inside. The company plowed through the farm to (eventually) get publicity for...

    OpenACC is building up momentum as Chipzilla ignores itISC 2013 Nvidia's new CUDA 5.5 release aims to overcome the inherent mathematical suckiness of the ARM architecture by unleashing the powers of GPUs working in conjunction with those popular low-power chips – and not just ones from Nvidia. Nvidia is working on its own implementation of a 64-bit ARM processor, code-named Project Denver, and is keen on porting its CUDA parallel programming environment to it. But if Nvidia wants to sell a lot of Tesla coprocessor cards to do the number crunching for modestly powered ARM chips, it needs to make...

    At least a part of it In order to make Intel's IDF 2011 parade a bit more sour, AMD announced that its yet to be released FX-8150 CPU was already overclocked to 8.429GHz, which earned the company the Guinness World Record for the highest achieved frequency. AMD's own Sami Maekinen as well as Brian Mclachlan, Pete Hardman and Aaron Schradin had some fun with AMD's eight-core FX-8150 CPU. Just for reference, previous best AMD record was set at 7378.25MHz with the Phenom II 955 Black Edition. Of course, if you take a look at the CPU-Z screenshots, you will...
