NVIDIA Releases GeForce 388.31 WHQL Game Ready Drivers

NVIDIA today has released the latest version of their GeForce Game Ready Graphics Driver. The new 388.31 drivers are optimized for the latest AAA games, "Star Wars Battlefront II," and "Injustice 2". NVIDIA has also added the corresponding 3D Vision profiles for both titles. In addition, they've included SLI profiles for Star Wars: Battlefront II and EVE Valkyrie - Warzone as well. According to them, the 388.31 drivers improve Destiny 2 performance by up to a staggering 53%. However, the more notable fixes include the micro-stuttering issue when using GPU monitoring tools to monitor GPU power and the driver not picking up GeForce GTX 1080 on the Alienware Amplifier.

Acer Prepares Aspire A615-51G with i7-8550U and GeForce MX150 for January Launch

Acer's new Aspire A615-51G laptop is set to launch on January 8th. The A615-51G is 19.95 mm thick and sports a sleek and sturdy all-metal body. The IPS display measures 15.6 inches and has a resolution of 1920 x 1080. There are two models planned so far. The standard model comes with an Intel Core i5-8250U processor and a 256GB SSD, while the higher-end model features the more powerful Intel Core i7-8550U processor, 128GB SSD, and a 1TB HDD for additional storage.

However, the two models do have some characteristics in common. Both will come with 8GB of RAM and employ NVIDIA's GeForce MX150 graphics card with 2GB GDDR5 memory. The standard model will cost $825 approximately, and the high-end model will set you back $1000.

Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition Coming Early 2018; PC Requirements Listed

Final Fantasy XV has been exceedingly well-received by both critics, consumers, and fans alike, but left out one particular gaming crowd: PC gamers. The original release of November 2016 for XBOX One and PS4 (with PS4 Pro improvements having been baked in the game as well), the game still stands as a showcase for graphics on consoles. However, a true PC, Windows Version of the game is under development in close partnership with NVIDIA, which will see a re-release of the game on PC with many added graphical features, including HDR and 4K resolution support.

Due to its close collaboration with NVIDIA, Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition is expected to be a showcase for NVIDIA GameWorks technologies, such as NVIDIA Flow, NVIDIA HairWorks, NVIDIA Hybrid Frustum Traced Shadows, NVIDIA Turf Effects, NVIDIA Voxel Ambient Occlusion, and more. With all of that NVIDIA technology being built-in, it's somewhat expected that the game will only run the way the developers envisioned on a green team graphics card. However, the system requirements seem to be reasonable - though we expect these to reflect only 1080p gaming, as a 4K presentation fo this game will most likely be a resource hog. As it is, Minimum System Requirements are being listed with DX 11, 8 GB RAM, an Intel Core i5 2400 (3.1GHz) or AMD FX-6100 (3.3GHz) CPU, and GeForce GTX 760 graphics. Recommended System Requirements bring those up: DX 11, 16 GB RAM, Intel Core i7 3770 (3.4GHz) or AMD FX-8350 (4.0GHz) CPU, and GeForce GTX 1060 graphics.

NVIDIA Announces the GeForce 388.10 Hotfix Drivers for Wolfenstein II

NVIDIA today released the latest version of their GeForce driver suite which brings with it critical support fixes for machine Games' Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus. This hotfix is of particular interest for Kepler-based GPUs - and the users that deploy these for eye-candy and 3D acceleration purposes. NVIDIA is counting on launching a new Game Ready driver package in the beginning of next week, bringing the best, optimal experience to the title.

If not for its impressive graphics and the fact that it's a Wolfenstein game, this one should probably capture your attention due to the developers cutting off multiplayer entirely, so that nothing interfered with the development of the games' single-player experience. In a world of canned single-player games due to these not being easy to develop microtransactions and DLC packs for, Machine Games' approach is one that should elicit an approving nod - at least for story pundits (disclaimer: this editor is one of those). You can download this driver below.

MSI Stuffs a GeForce GTX 1050 Into New GS63 Stealth Ultra-Slim Gaming Laptop

MSI, a world leader in gaming hardware, introduces a new model of its GS63 Stealth line of notebooks. The newest variant features the same ultra-slim design, but with a more affordable GeForce GTX 1050 GPU. At just 1.8kg, the Stealth also features a powerful cooling module with three fans and five heatpipes to keep the system optimal at all times. The notebook has a 72 percent NTSC IPS level display, SteelSeries multi-color backlit keyboard and Killer Double shot Pro for smoother online gameplay.

The notebook takes advantage of MSI's Cooler Boost Trinity technology. It features five heatpipes for effective low-noise heat dissipation, even while gaming. Combing this cooling system with NVIDIA's latest GeForce GTX 1050, the system will be able to perform to its full capacity for a long period of time.

MSI, PALIT, ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1070 Ti Graphics Cards Also Pictured

Videocardz does a great job on putting their hands on as-of-yet unreleased pictures of upcoming GPUs, and this time, they've brought out some more custom takes on NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1070 Ti graphics card from MSI, PALIT, and yet more ZOTAC models. MSI has shown their red and black color scheme yet again on their Gaming model; lower in the product stack comes the Armor model, with its black and white color scheme; and finally, there's the blower-type Aero version of the GTX 1070 Ti.

PALIT hasn't shown their hand on the blower-style GTX 1070 Ti, which they almost assuredly have; however, there are some pictures fo two of their custom models. There's a Dual-Fan model with the same name, and another, slightly higher-tier looking JetStream version, which likely brings some RGB elements and a custom PCB - likely, the GTX 1070 Ti version of their GTX 1080 JetStream graphics card.

EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 Ti Graphics Cards Pictures Out in the Wild

The GTX 1070 Ti is likely one of the worst kept secrets in recent history of graphics cards launches - whether by accident or design, only NVIDIA fully knows. Now, it's EVGA's lineup of graphics cards based on this overpowered version of the GTX 1070 graphics card that has surfaced. No less than four different models have been pictured, which still likely don't represent the entirety of EVGA's lineup for this particular piece of GP-104 silicon.

Besides a simple, blower-type design, akin to today's leak of ASUS's GeForce GTX 1070 Ti Turbo Edition, EVGA will be launching at least three different SKUs with their signature ICX cooler design series, with varying levels of customization on the PCB and power delivery designs.

NVIDIA Releases GeForce 388.00 Game Ready Drivers

NVIDIA today released the GeForce 388.00 WHQL software suite. These drivers are "game-ready" for the week's hottest two game releases, "Destiny 2," and "Assassin's Creed: Origins." This includes optimization, and GeForce Experience optimal settings. The drivers also address stuttering issues with G-Sync on certain displays plugged into gaming notebooks, while running "The Witcher 3," "Doom" or "CS: GO." Grab the drivers from the links below.

ASUS ROG STRIX 1070 Ti, Turbo Graphics Cards Pictured

Videocardz has done it again, and have gotten their hands on manufacturer's images of as of yet unreleased graphics cards. This time, it's ASUS' products that have been brought to the limelight, with not one, but two custom versions of their upcoming GeForce GTX 1070 Ti graphics cards being pictures next to their retail boxes.

The first graphics card is the 1070 Ti Turbo (TURBO-GTX1070TI-8G), which like most ASUS Turbo models, should be among the cheapest 1070 Ti options - it forfeits any additional engineering besides NVIDIA's reference design, and adds ASUS' Turbo blower-type cooler. The 1070 Ti STRIX (ROG-STRIX-GTX1070TI-A8G-GAMING), on the other hand, is a custom-engineered version of the GTX 1070 (GP-104) silicon, and should come with the same higher margins as other ASUS custom products. A mainstay of ASUS STRIX designs is the presence of Aura Sync RGB lighting control, and a triple-fan configuration, which should bring operating temperatures down considerably. We should start seriously considering the chance that we'll see an as of yet unannounced NVIDIA graphics card actually launch with custom partner designs before custom versions of AMD's Vega graphics cards ever hit the retail channel. Though to be fair, it's much easier for AIB partners to simply recycle NVIDIA custom designs for this particular graphics card than design an entirely new one for AMD's Vega.

NVIDIA Releases the GeForce 387.92 Game Ready Graphics Drivers

NVIDIA today released the GeForce 387.92 Game Ready Graphics Drivers, which presents a more comprehensive package than most Game Ready drivers. This time, the changes aren't mostly limited to new, upcoming games support, though that's still part of the package. On that front, you can count on these drivers being optimized for the upcoming Middle-earth: Shadow of War and The Evil Within 2, as well as Forza Motorsport 7, on which NVIDIA expects anywhere between 15% and 25% performance improvement (which should help improve NVIDIA's situation). On the VR space, this driver package brings the optimal experience for 4A Games' Artika.1 (if you recognize the studios' name, it's probably because they're the ones behind the Metro game series.

Also interesting, however, are the feature updates that come with this driver package. Fast Sync is now supported for SLI configurations, though Maxwell architecture users should steer clear of 4K resolution, which isn't supported for this feature. There's also NVIDIA GameStream support for HDR under Windows 10. On the renderer side, we see added support for OpenGL 4.6, as well as for DirectX Intermediate Language (DXIL). This includes full support for DirectX 12 Shader Model 6.0 ( for features such as Wavemath), and the DirectX Shader Compiler, though it's only supported on NVIDIA Kepler and later GPUs. There are also some improvements to full-screen Vulkan applications, though this particular change may cause more errors while leaving and entering full-screen mode (Alt-Tab).

NVIDIA Bundles Middle Earth: Shadow of War with GeForce GTX 1080 and GTX 1080 Ti

Middle Earth: Shadow of War, the long-awaited sequel to 2014's Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, is scheduled to be released on October 10, 2017. In honor of the title's release, NVIDIA is bringing us the new "Forge Your Army" bundle.

The offer also extends to systems or notebook containing the participating models. You can consult the list of authorized E-tail and Retail partners in the source link below.

Monolith Productions have been working hand-in-hand with NVIDIA throughout the game's entire development process. For that reason alone, it doesn't come as a surprise to find so many NVIDIA exclusive features in Middle Earth: Shadow of War. The game will make use of NVIDIA's Ansel technology to allow gamers to capture in-game screenshots and view them in 360°. Middle Earth: Shadow of War will support the High Dynamic Range (HDR) feature to produce more realistic images. NVIDIA is also delivering Scalable Link Interface (SLI) support for the game.

NVIDIA at Gamescom 2017: ShadowPlay Highlights, Ansel AI Style Transfer and More

Yes, Gamescom 2017 is done already and it would be fair to say that Microsoft took a lot of press time with their Age of Empires IV announcement. This does not mean others were quiet, and indeed we missed what NVIDIA was up to until recently. They held a pre-event show where developers from the most popular games today- PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, Destiny 2, Middle Earth: Shadow of War, and Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition- presented new feature trailers (in 4K, of course) supporting NVIDIA's GameWorks technology.

In addition, there were hands-on sessions available with some other upcoming game releases including Pro Evolution Soccer 2018, Forza Motorsport 7, Need for Speed Payback, Project Cars 2 and the recently released Lawbreakers. These games came with some GameWorks announcements as applicable as well.

NVIDIA, AMD to Launch Mining-Oriented Versions of Their GPUs

You must've heard the news of increasingly tighter supply on AMD's video cards. This is kind of a "hello darkness my old friend" kind of moment, since we've seen this happening before. However, these days, the problem looks to be exacerbated with the increase in digital currencies - it's not just Bitcoin now. Ethereum and Zcash have come in to fill customer's desire for a lower entry, ASIC-resistant mineable cryptocurrency. And with the currencies' exploding pricing, people are once again looking to enter the mining craze - to ride the crypto wave, so to speak. All higher-performance graphics cards since the R200 series are flying off the shelves and second hand markets, and as we speak, virtually all RX 580 models are out of stock on Newegg. And while AMD graphics cards have historically been leagues better than their NVIDIA counterparts in mining environments, recently some specialized miners have surfaced, tailored for the Pascal architecture (more oriented to Zcash, though.)

EVGA Announces the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti K|ngp|n Edition Graphics Card

In addition, the company has redoubled efforts towards packing the highest-grade electrical components in this graphics card for extreme overclocking methods, even going so far as to include support (via a connector) to external overclocking modules such as EVBot.

NVIDIA Announces GeForce MX150 Laptops: Supercharged For Work and Play

Remember that MX150 mobile graphics card we covered recently? NVIDIA has just let the cat out of the bag, with an announcement that seemingly confirms the specs we were expecting. NVIDIA is selling this mobile GPU's space as the expected IGP-upgrade, citing up to 3x superior performance-per-Watt compared to previous-generation Maxwell-based GeForce 940MX laptops. In other words, GeForce MX150 enables thinner laptops that run applications faster while sipping less power.

NVIDIA Releases GeForce 382.23 WHQL Graphics Driver - For GT 1030

NVIDIA today released an updated version of their GeForce graphics drivers, version 382.23 WHQL, which brings with it support for the company's GT 1030 entry-level graphics cards. Strangely, the drivers' supported products only register as the GT 1030 itself, which is a little unusual, to say the least.

Follow the link here to grab the drivers directly from NVIDIA. Note that since these drivers ONLY support NVIDIA's new GT 1030, you shouldn't upgrade to these if you have any other NVIDIA card. To download the drivers, you'll have to choose the GT 1030 from the drop-down menu on NVIDIA's site, as well as the proper OS version for your use case.
