It's almost Time. That's what Nvidia is telling us in preparation for its keynote at GDC 2017, and it doesn't take a genius to work out that it's going to take the opportunity to introduce a new, top-of-the-line consumer graphics card to replace the powerful GTX 1080 — unsurprisingly called the GTX 1080 Ti.

Virtual reality finally arrived. Self-driving cars started wandering streets and past red lights. SpaceX aborted a rocket launch four times within a week. Samsung started strong with the Galaxy S7 and finished with the Note7 nuking itself into orbit while you slept.
We had new graphics cards, and most of them were pretty damn good. Consoles broke the mould by releasing new hardware mid-cycle and becoming more like PCs than ever before. And, unsurprisingly, we found out once again that Einstein really knew his shit.
It's been a big year for tech. Let's break down this year's biggest moments.
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.
Nvidia's second Pascal gaming graphics card is finally breaking cover, after only a quick mention at the launch of the top-spec GeForce GTX 1080. It'll be out two weeks after its slightly more powerful counterpart, but its significantly lower price should make it especially attractive to anyone gaming at sub-4K resolutions.
Getting around and out of the office or house with your laptop is great, but even better is getting outside and enjoying some of the great PC games out there. If you want to do that on a notebook, you'll need a machine with appropriately powerful graphics card inside. Here are a couple of tips for working out what hardware you should choose in your next laptop.
Nvidia has been kicking a lot of goals recently. It released the GTX 980, the world's most powerful single-GPU graphics card in November last year, and did the same with its laptop chips. Now there's a new king of desktop graphics, the Titan X — and this is one really really ridiculously powerful card.
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.
