How Physically-Based Rendering Could Be Used To Create The Perfect Burger

During GTC 2015, we were shown a demo of Iray 2015 — Nvidia’s next-gen physically-based renderer (PBR) for design professionals. The platform’s main claim to fame is its ability to calculate how light and materials interact in real time. While chiefly aimed at industries that deal in plastics and metals, the same process could just as easily be applied to mass-produced foods. Could the world’s first perfectly designed burger soon be upon us? We asked Nvidia to expand on this salivating thought.


Nvidia's Self-Driving Computer Can Also Spot The Fuzz [Video]

Autonomous cars are fast becoming a reality — and they are getting smarter each and every time they take to the road. This is thanks to deep structured learning algorithms that allow self-steering vehicles to assess, react and adapt to changing road conditions and file the memory away for later. As demonstrated in this Nvidia Drive PX video clip, they are also proficient at identifying individual vehicle types — including cop cars.


Nvidia Unveils Its Latest Monster: The Quadro M6000 Pro Graphics Card

Nvidia has lifted the curtains on a new family of cutting-edge Quadro graphics cards at GTC 2015; including the super high-end Quadro M6000. This 12GB $5000 monster almost makes the Titan X look like an integrated graphics card. The specs are legit bananas.


The Coolest Robotic Platforms At GTC 2015

The GPU Technology Conference isn’t just about graphics cards — it’s also where Nvidia and its partners demonstrate new and disruptive technologies that have the potential to change how humans live. This year, a big part of this centered around robotics, with scores of fully autonomous gizmos pottering about the showroom floor. Here are our favourite robo-innovations — from navigational 3D mapping platforms that help robots see to mechanized office assistants that want to steal our jobs.


Elon Musk Describes The Future Of Self-Driving Cars

Elon Musk isn’t afraid to speak his mind — and it always feels like he’s about to change the world. So when the Tesla, SpaceX and PayPal billionaire sat down with Nvidia’s CEO to talk about his self-driving cars, we listened carefully. (Not because he always delivers on his promises, mind you.)


Games Could Help Google's 3D-Sensing Tango Tablet Become A Reality

Google’s Project Tango lets pocket-sized computers see the world in 3D, which could lead to amazing things. Augmented reality shopping. Indoor navigation. Drones that don’t crash into foreign objects. But Google project lead Johnny Lee admits that Tango hasn’t seen much interest from phonemakers yet. What might change that? Games, he says.


Automated Image Captioning Turns Your Computer Into An Idiot Savant [Video]

During GTC 2015, we were given a demonstration of automated image captioning with ConvNets and Recurrent Nets. Using nothing but a database of images, the platform was able to describe what it saw onscreen. Sometimes the results were astonishingly accurate. Other times, not so much. In other words, it will turn your computer into something brilliant yet handicapped — a bit like Rain Man.


Renovo Coupe: As Shiny As Electric Gets

The Renovo Coupe might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but it’s certainly one of the curviest — and shiniest — electric supercars that you are ever likely to lay eyes on. Boasting a 740-volt lithium ion battery that pushes out 500-horse power and a Nvidia Tegra X1 superchip with a teraflop of processing grunt, it’s certainly no slouch in the “oomph” department either. We were lucky to get up close and personal with the latest iteration at Nvidia’s GPU Technology Conference in San Jose, California. Despite having to constantly wipe drool off our lens, we managed to take a few photos…


Nvidia's Monster GTX Titan X Will Cost $US999

Nvidia’s absurdly powerful GeForce GTX Titan X graphics card was officially launched at GTC 2015 this morning. While its design and specifications had already been leaked, we now have a confirmed price tag. As you’d expect, the RRP is every bit as monstrous as the card itself.


GTX Titan X: Nvidia's Absurd New Graphics Card Is A Beast

Two years ago, Nvidia announced its original Titan graphics card, a bad-boy built on the company’s Kepler technology and for a time the most powerful card out there. Now, the Titan X is here and it’s ready to reclaim the throne.
