Is Oculus Touch Priced at USD 199?

Oculus Logo GDC 2016

Even though they’re not the only VR headsets on the market, HTC Vive and Oculus Rift attract the most attention and command the mainstream media presence. When announced, Oculus Rift launch price of $599 presented a main advantage over HTC Vive’s $799. In markets such as the European Union, that price went as high as Euro 699 (Rift) vs. 899 (Vive). Translated into USD, $785 vs. 1010. From the very start, explanation for the Vive price was that the package enables “room scale VR,” with the included tracking solution (Lighthouse) and a pair of motion controllers, while the Oculus Rift only comes with a Microsoft Xbox controller.

Nvidia Pascal Based Titan 50% Faster than GeForce GTX 1080?

Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 in 2-Way SLI

While Nvidia will pull out all the guns to fight the AMD Radeon RX 480, releasing GeForce GTX 1060 as early as July 7th – our focus is slowly turning towards the real big gun of Pascal-based GeForce line-up. If our sources are correct, GP100 and GP102 were essentially the same chips, with the difference being memory and bus interface on the GP102 and PCI Express for the GP100. Feature set on both chips is the same, and there are no surprises. We held the “Tesla P100 for PCI Express-based Servers” board in our hands just a few weeks ago, and just a few days ago, we managed

AMD Confirms Sony PlayStation Neo Based on 14nm CPU and Polaris?

AMD's Mission Statement

During AMD’s 2016 Investor Day, the company disclosed its growth strategy. Many of the focal points are in motion already, or even public. For example, AMD sealed the deal with THATIC, Chinese government owned investment fund – which will see their x86 processors enter Chinese enterprise and government sectors in a big way. Second part of the strategy was to finally become a fabless semiconductor, with all the risks and rewards involved with that move. The company spun off its packaging facility, making a total cash intake in excess of $664 million – plus all the unannounced grants that the company is bidding for. Still, perhaps one of the biggest future announcement

Future 2016 and 2017 Intel Processors Benchmarks Leaked

Intel Core i7 Extreme Edition Sticker

Over the course of 2016 and 2017, Intel will introduce two new architectures for the desktop platform – Broadwell-E and Kaby Lake. Broadwell-E will succeed the venerable Haswell-E as a drop-in replacement for the X99 platform. On the other side, Kaby Lake is Intel’s third (and last?) processor architecture that uses 14nm FinFET process. First to launch will be Broadwell-E processors in six-, eight- and ten-core versions (sexa-, octa-, deca-core). Branded as Core i7-6800 and i7-6900 Extreme Edition series, these processors represent the best Intel can offer to the market. The company adopted a two-fold approach; i7-6850K, a six-core processor for ultimate overclockers clocked at

Battlefield 5 and GeForce GTX 1080 Reveal on the Same Date

Battlefield V Premiere Landing Page

EA today launched a landing page for the World Premiere of next generation of Battlefield. On May 6th, 2016 at 1 PM Pacific, 4PM Eastern and 9PM British Summer Time, Electronic Arts will hold a live stream announcing the Battlefield 5. This will be the 11th title since this franchise launched in 2002, and probably the most expected one. Star Wars: Battlefront was quite a disappointment and not a single Battlefield title managed to beat Call of Duty from the throne of annual-to-bi-annual franchises that storm the bestselling charts. At the same time, Nvidia is hosting its secretive meeting where the selected invitees will be introduced to GP104 and GP106,

16nm MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Leak Ahead of Computex Taipei 2016

MSI GeForce GTX 1080 GAMING 8G

Given that we won’t be seeing any high end GPU hardware until the first quarter 2017 (HBM2-powered AMD Vega 10, Nvidia Pascal GP100), the focus for 2016 will be on the mainstream cards. The shift from 28nm to 16nm (Nvidia) and 14nm (AMD) forced the companies to adopt a conservative approach and focus on entry-level and mainstream silicon, rather than the “highest of all ends”. While Nvidia did launch its 15 billion transistor silicon named GP100 i.e. Tesla P100 at the Nvidia GPU Technology Conference, Jen-Hsun Huang did state that real volume shipments will only start in the first quarter of 2017, roughly the same time

Radeon Technologies Group Logo.

AMD received a substantial coverage at VentureBeat recently, with Dean Takahashi interviewing key executives in succession. First off was an in-depth interview with Lisa Su (CEO and Chairman of AMD), followed by an interview with Raja Koduri, Head (CEO?) of Radeon Technologies Group. RTG is AMD’s spin-off which you can compare with the spin-off of manufacturing division you now know as GlobalFoundries, just without a strong sovereign wealth fund (like Mubadala Development Company)… for now. In order to execute on a huge market opportunity in the form of Virtual Reality, RTG wants to make sure all the basics are covered. For starters, one of more painful episodes from the company
