Most of the specifications and performance-enhancing features of NVIDIA's Pascal GPUs, the GTX 1070 and 1080, are largely known by now. And we also know what the American prices of those chips will be.

But nobody knows precisely how much Aussies will be charged for the king of GPUs. And as it turns out, the answer is quite a lot.

At 11AM AEST, Nvidia will (almost certainly) introduce its new Pascal video cards to the hardcore gaming world, with a special event live from the US, and the promise of something more than just new GPUs as well. Here's where you can watch along.

It's always really satisfying when you can tick both excellent performance and lower power consumption from your checklist of "is this better than the last one?" in technology, especially in the usually incrementally improving world of desktop computing.

The new Nvidia GTX 980 graphics card, though, uses less energy than previous chipsets but improves performance more than you'd expect at the same time. Nvidia's latest top-of-the-line GPU is a piece of technology to behold.

Nvidia's latest and greatest laptop graphics tech dropped last night, and it's big news for anyone who wants an all-in-one gaming machine that can actually leave the house. PC gaming laptops just aren't massive hulking monoliths of plastic and copper and silicon any more. (Well, some still are, but that's beside the point.) Here are a few of the new high-powered notebooks you'll be able to pick up very, very soon.

Nvidia's most powerful ever desktop graphics card, the GTX 980, was introduced with fanfare a fortnight ago because even though it was more powerful than last generation's chips, it consumed much less energy for the same result.

To complement the desktop GTX 980, Nvidia has a pair of new laptop GPUs — the GTX 980M and GTX 970M — that are even more efficient. They're twice as efficient as a comparable two-year old chip, and consume a fraction of the power.

Last year, the CSIRO's supercomputer was ranked as the 145th most powerful supercomputer in the world. Powered by NVIDIA's Tesla GPUs and constructed by Aussie company Xenon, the supercomputer is used is a fine example of the benefits of using GPUs for scientific discovery. but according to NVIDIA's GM of Tesla computing, Andy Keane, it's the current developments in the mobile processing space that will drive the next generation of supercomputers.

Choosing a graphics cards is a confusing endeavour. So Tom's Hardware shared their buying results after testing pretty much every card on the planet. Whether you've got $US50 to spend or $US250 to spend, this list will come in handy:

The Nvidia Optimus seamlessly switches between GPUs based on need. And based on this fellow being able to yank out a GPU while the rest of a system is running, it works rather well too.
