Under The Hood: This Week In PC, Component And Software News

Thinking of building a new gaming PC? Struggling with whatever random error your desktop is throwing up this week? Under The Hood gives you a quick and concise run-down of the most important things that happened to the PC master race in the last seven days.


Nvidia Will Power Volvo's Fleet Of Autonomous Cars

Nvidia’s Drive PX 2 car supercomputers will see their first real-world test just next year, when they will be used in Swedish carmaker Volvo’s Drive Me autonomous car pilot. The Drive PX 2 enables autonomous cars to use a kind of artificial intelligence called “deep learning” to navigate roads safely.


Nvidia's Autonomous Car Computer Makes 24 Trillion AI Operations A Second

Nvidia has announced its first in-car artificial intelligence supercomputer at CES. It sounds like it should turn any vehicle into a computational powerhouse, capable of performing 24 trillion deep-learning operations every single second.


Watch Nvidia's CES 2016 Press Conference Right Here

Nvidia is one of the first to kick off at CES 2016, with a conference covering the company’s recent forays into self-driving and autonomous vehicles, virtual reality, and its existing portfolio of GeForce graphics and gaming technologies. You can watch it live with us, right here.


Facebook Open Sources Its Deep Learning Hardware Rig, Big Sur

In its growing AI war with Google, Facebook is open sourcing the specialised hardware it uses for Deep Learning AI, known as Big Sur, which is now twice as capable as its last setup.


PC Graphics Card Showdown: NVIDIA Versus AMD

The hardest part of building a PC is picking the parts, especially when everyone around you seems to have an opinion. And no flame war is more prevalent than the NVIDIA snobs vs the AMD fanboys. What’s really going on with these two companies, and which card should you get?


Microsoft's Surface Book: Not Made For Gaming, But Not Terrible At It

Microsoft’s $2299 Surface Book, which launched in Australia at the same time as its flagship Sydney store, is a thin and light tablet with a keyboard dock that contains extra battery power. Uniquely, though, the Surface Book’s lower half also contains a Nvidia GeForce graphics card, fueling some small hope that it might be adequate for a bit of weekend gaming.

After some mucking around with different Nvidia drivers and a bunch of testing over the weekend, I can say that adequate is the word — the Surface Book certainly isn’t a gaming powerhouse, but with a bit of software hacking, it’s not terrible, and enough to enjoy a modern video game or two.


NVIDIA To Force GeForce Experience And User Registration For Latest Drivers

If you’re used to getting the most recent drivers for your NVIDIA card via Windows Update or NVIDIA’s home page, you’re in for a rude surprise. Starting mid-next month you’ll have to not only install the GeForce Experience (GFE), but register with NVIDIA to get your fix of “Game Ready” software for your graphics card.


Graphics Card Battle 2015: Nvidia Versus AMD At Every Price Point

You might say 2015 hasn’t been the most exciting year for graphics cards, though in many ways it was more eventful than 2014. The only big highlight last year was the arrival high-end Maxwell GPUs in the form of the GeForce GTX 980 and 970. Then this year Maxwell did what many thought was impossible: becoming considerably faster.


Microsoft Surface Book's Secret Nvidia GPU: What Is It?

There’s an optional discrete graphics card available in higher-spec variants of Microsoft’s brand new Surface Book laptop; it’ll make the thin and light laptop powerful enough for a bit of casual gaming as well as demanding graphics applications like Adobe Photoshop. Probably, at least — we don’t actually know anything about it, and Microsoft and Nvidia are staying pretty quiet on the topic.
