We had a feeling NVIDIA was going to release something in October this year, but the newest from the rumour mill is that they will release not one, but three new cards targeting different market segments.
Ah, the world of graphics… never a dull moment. AMD’s Mantle shook up the PC gaming platform when it was introduced some time ago, and since then more and more developers (right now 47 of them) are pledging support to the API. Now it seems Intel itself wants to see what the fuss is about.
When NVIDIA introduced the Geforce GTX TITAN-Z, everyone gasped at their price – after all, $3000 consumer graphics cards are not a sight you see every day. Media coverage has been a bit sparse, since NVIDIA didn’t actually have many review samples available.
AMD first talked about FreeSync in this year’s CES; it’s the company’s take on variable refresh monitors, utilizing some variable refresh functionality first designed for embedded DisplayPort (eDP). In Computex, a first prototype of the technology was presented.
