Nvidia launches Pick Your Path game bundle

In the latest battle of its traditional bundling war with rival AMD, Nvidia has tied up three highly-anticipated new games from Ubisoft: Asassin’s Creed Unity, Far Cry 4 and The Crew. Packing free games in with graphics cards is a frequent and relatively cheap technique used to boost sales over those of a rival. AMD and Nvidia trade blows on the bundling front all the time, but Nvidia’s latest deal – dubbed the Pick Your Path Bundle – is only for those picking up range-topping GPUs. Purchasers of ‘eligible’ GeForce GTX 980, GTX 970, GTX 780 and GTX 780 Ti graphics processors, or of laptops equipped with the GTX 900M series GPUs, will now be given a choice of three Ubisoft titles to download. Finally, if all that seems a little violent, delayed racing title The Crew is the third option in the bundle – albeit one released significantly after the November launches of the other two, assuming it hits its promised 2nd of December launch date.The new Nvidia is designed specially for to play high graphics games like pokemon go. At its heart Pokemon is a  game , but one might be pardoned for not knowing that because Pokemon really may be a cultural phenomenon. For the remainder folks not involved within the Pokemon world, one could easily assume that’s an animation movie and tv series that has spawned off dozens of merchandising goods like Pokemon plush toys (stuffed toys), Pokemon Tomy figures, and therefore the very...



Gigabyte GTX 970 G1 Gaming Review

Today marks the launch of Nvidia's newest generation of graphics cards, and th Gigabyte GTX 970 G1 Gaming is the specific model we're looking at today. It's latest in the company's popular model series, coming with an updated version of its namesake cooler. We've been impressed in the past with Windforce graphics cards, and we suspect this new one will be no different. It's not an entirely fresh look, constructed in metal rather than plastic, but does come with an aggressive factory overclock and a few new surprises in store.



NVIDIA GTX 980 and 970 Rumored for September Launch

A lot of news has been revolving around AMD and INTEL releasing new products while NVIDIA has been sitting silently in the background. Thankfully, rumors are starting to come out that should be pulling them out of their shell. While the details are still pretty sketchy, it’s beginning to look like NVIDIA is skipping the 800 series desktop nomenclature entirely and introducing the GTX 980 with the GTX 970 in September. The most interesting thing about this is the decision to skip the 800 series name scheme. I get particularly intrigued by the marketing techniques because it shows how intense the GPU war is. The most common sense reason for this is to avoid confusion with consumers in that NVIDIA is also releasing their 900 series mobile GPUs and both chips are using the same underlying architecture. On the other hand, it also sounds like NVIDIA was able to jump ahead making these offerings seem that much more advanced to what AMD is releasing right now and what NVIDIA currently has on the market. Of course without specifications or performance, this could be nothing more than keen marketing. Either way consumers could subconsciously think that the architecture has taken a dramatic leap when, in reality, the GPU should be based around the same designs that brought us the GTX 750 Ti not that long ago. Whether or not these GPUs merit the 900 series badge or not, the exciting news is we’re finally going to see what high end Maxwell is all about. The notorious proble...
