NVIDIA are pushing out some impressive products over the next few months.
We had the chance to go behind-closed-doors with NVIDIA at PAX Aus this year, where the company were showcasing the latest they had on offer.
We played closest attention in our session to the new monitors NVIDIA are getting behind. They were announced earlier this year as the first 4K G-Sync HDR monitors specifically designed for gaming, and it’s hard to argue when you can see in the flesh just how good something like Destiny 2 looks on one. Keep your eye on the end of the year and early next year for release dates.
Of course, that wasn’t all that was on show. Another highlight was NVIDIA’s MAX-Q designed laptops. Simply put, they’re thinner and more streamlined than what you may expect from a gaming laptop – how would you fit in a half-decent graphics card otherwise? Using their magic, they’re able to fit GTX 1080 technology – yeah, 1080 – into a laptop no larger than 18mm thick. It’s an unprecedented level of portable PC gaming that’s never looked better.
Finally, NVIDIA are in the throws of releasing their latest graphics card onto the market – the GTX 1070 Ti. It fits snugly between the 1070s and the 1080s, and will deliver double the performance of the 970s. You’re looking at 2,432 cores and 8GB of memory running at 8GB/s for a total bandwidth of 256 GB/s. Just something else to add to your Christmas list, really.
