It was just a matter of time before somebody would hold a tournament for the popular Call of Duty: Black Ops. Now we got one, a massive one. Get ready for glory!

Okay, I know it’s a little late but this is big and still relatively relevant. NVIDIA, one of the world’s two leading graphic card companies ever and Alienware, a brand that needs no more introduction to hardcore gamers, are currently accepting entires for NVIDIA Call of Duty: Black Ops Tournament for US and Canada residents. Registration has begun last December 8 and will continue up to January 16th, 2011.

Gamers will take on the rest of the North American gaming population as they vie for the title of champion and a whopping $1,500 cash prize. But they need to own their adversaries with unique and adapting tactis first in either Search & Destroy, Capture the Flag, and Demoliton and Domination mode.

NVIDIA Releases GeForce GTX 570

"The new GeForce GTX 570 delivers the world's fastest DX11 performance in its class, and is up to 128 percent faster in today's newest DX11 tessellated games." ---NVIDIA

NVIDIA may be unpredictable sometimes. Following the release of GF110-based GeForce GTX 580 1.5GB last month, NVIDIA flexes their muscles with the abrupt release of the cheaper follow-up, in the name of GeForce GTX 570 1.3GB.

What’s new?

At a glance, there’s a very little difference between the GTX 580 1.5GB and the new GTX 570 1.3GB. Bothuses 10.5in-long PCB and glossy plastic shroud. The only obvious difference is the lesser power phase circuitry on the end of the card; more on that latter.

While the GTX 570 1.3GB look very much like a GTX 580 1.5GB on the outside, the inside is where the changes are found. The most notable of which is that the GTX 570 1.3GB uses 480 stream processors. Does it rings a bell? The GTX 480 1.5GB used the same, with the last SM (Streaming Multiprocessor, or block of 32 stream processors) of the GPU’s design disabled.

NVIDIA Creates Fastest GPU on Earth

Written on November 08, 2010 by AllWeLike

NVIDIA never fails to amaze people with the newest technology. And now, the company introduces the fastest GPU ever created on the planet.

The news that NVIDIA is expecting their next flagship GPU and considered to be the fastest in the planet did not come as a surprise. But surely, people will agree that this is the most awesome yet the most underrated announcement ever made. The first public teaser of the graphics card has revealed a new vapor chamber cooling system. It is just like the Shuttle’s ICE CPU cooler. The process involved sealing the water inside and then the chamber gets boiled by hot elements. It transfers heat away to the bits whic are being cooled by a fan. The by-product is recycled and transferred back to the boiling plate.

NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450: The Mainstream-Bound Fermi Family

Written on September 14, 2010 by Rudfer Tyron

Comments Off

NVIDIA is all powered up for the GPU game. Up now: Another sibling in the 400 series, GTS 450.

Two months after the Fermi architecture tweaks that pushed GTX 460, powered by GF104, to tramp AMD’s Radeon HD 5830 in the market, Nvidia takes a dive into the mainstream with the GF106-powered GTS 450. Smaller, cheaper, easier to manufacture–what does this little engine actually deliver?

Quietly entering the mobile market, the GF106 has been presumed to happen after seeing the GF104. The latter was theoretically prepared for a cut-down with its 384 CUDA cores overlaying 2 GPCs and a four-set ROPs as well as memory controllers. But the GF106 is more than what we expected: it is more than just a half of its larger predecessor.
