Meet Nvidia's Artificial Intelligence Computer For Autonomous Cars

Nvidia has made a tiny artificial intelligence computer for powering the high definition mapping and highway automated driving of autonomous vehicles.

Snapped up by China’s Baidu as the in-vehicle car computer for its self-driving cloud-to-car system, the palm-sized Drive PX 2 allows cars to use deep neural networks to process data from multiple cameras and sensors — all while using just 10 watts of power.


Under The Hood: Intel's New 3D SSDs And New PC Cases

Is your PC chugging along just loading web pages? Thinking about an upgrade? It’s probably a good idea to check in here — Under The Hood tells you what’s new this week in PC tech.


Here's The Tech That Will Power The Next Generation Of Driverless Cars

Driverless cars are very cool, but the technology that enables their self-driving smarts requires a novel mix of raw computational and deep learning power, using both general-purpose CPUs and GPUs to crunch real-time data and match it to a massive catalogue of imagery and vehicle profiles. A brand new Nvidia processor, the company says, has the power to finally make it happen.


Nvidia Finally Fixed Laptop Gaming

You haven’t really experienced PC gaming if you’ve been playing on a laptop instead of a desktop. You’ve enjoyed the convenience of taking your games anywhere, but you’ve sacrificed playability for mobility. Your games are rarely pretty. You run things on mid-to-low settings. The newest games struggle. But with Nvidia’s latest new line of mobile video cards based on the Pascal chip architecture, that’s all going to change. Nvidia just closed the gap between mobile and desktop PC gamers, and made VR accessible to a much larger audience.


Elon Musk's OpenAI Wants To Teach Robots To Speak Like Redditors

Reddit is known for many things: Lively communities, a dedicated user base, questionable boxes, incest. Now, the Elon Musk-and-Peter Thiel-backed nonprofit OpenAI wants to use Reddit’s vast array of content as a guide for its new machine learning programs.


Nvidia's New GeForce Laptop GPUs Are Just As Powerful As A Desktop PC

When Nvidia released its latest Pascal graphics cards for desktop PCs, it signalled a significant jump in outright performance from the previous Maxwell generation, with a completely new architecture offering not only improved frame rates but also much more efficient energy consumption — the critical metric of performance per Watt. Nvidia has taken that leap further with a new range of 10-series graphics chipsets for gaming laptops, and unlike in previous generations they’re not operating at a huge performance disadvantage versus desktops.


Virtual 3D Oil Painting Perfectly Simulates How The Brush, Paint And Canvas Interact

Nvidia and Adobe teamed up to develop a 3D-painting app that is sure to become an essential tool for modern day art forgers. The software accurately simulates the 3D texture of oil paints, and how the bristles of a brush work to smear it across a canvas.


The Penalty For Pairing A GTX 1060 Or RX 480 With An Old CPU

It’s always easier to replace a video card than it is a CPU and motherboard, so it’s not surprising to find people with a GTX 1060 or RX 480 surrounded by comparatively ancient components. These setups are sacrificing some performance by bottle-necking their GPU, sure, but exactly how much is going to waste?


Nvidia Just Announced The New Titan X, Another Most-Powerful-Ever Graphics Card

Step aside, GTX 1080. There’s another new king in town. If you thought the most recent top-of-the-line Nvidia graphics card was unreasonably powerful, then you’re in for a shock. The Nvidia Titan X is, on paper, around 50 per cent more powerful again.


This Is The Smallest, Most Powerful 4K Gaming PC You've Ever Seen

30 centimetres, by 30 centimetres, by 10 centimetres. That’s how big this 4K-friendly, Intel Core i7-toting, dual SSD-booting, Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 SLI-ing gaming rig is. The only problem? The case itself cost more than the $US3500 of high-end PC components inside. Built for an Australian hardcore PC enthusiast and engineer, it’s a prototype for what could well be the smallest 4K gaming PC that money can buy.
