GeForce laptops are light, quiet, and engineered to hit the sweet spot of ultimate GeForce gaming and impossibly sleek design.  This season, look for GeForce gaming laptops from brands like, Razer, ASUS ROG (Republic of Gamers), Acer Predator, Alienware, HP Omen, Lenovo Legion and MSI.

A gaming laptop’s GPU is the most important spec: Aim for an RTX 2060 or higher in your laptop with the highest refresh rates you can find.

Nvidia introduces AI for generating video conference talking heads from 2D images

Nvidia AI researchers have introduced AI for generating talking heads for video conferences from a single 2D image capable of achieving a wide range of manipulation, from rotating and moving a person’s head to motion transfer and video reconstruction. The AI uses the first frame in a video as a 2D photo then uses an unsupervised learning method to gather 3D keypoints within a video. In addition to outperforming other approaches in tests using benchmark datasets, the AI achieves H.264 quality video using one-tenth of the bandwidth that was previously required.

Nvidia research scientists Ting-Chun Wang, Arun Mallya, and Ming-Yu Liu published a paper about the model Monday on preprint repository arXiv. Results show the latest AI model outperforms vid2vid, a few-shot GAN detailed in a paper published at NeurIPS last year of which Wang was lead author and Liu was a coauthor.

“By modifying the keypoint transformation only, we

Nvidia, Intel, and AMD GPU shipments up 10.8% as consumers scoop up PCs

Demand is sky high for GPUs, according to industry intelligence firm Jon Peddie Research. In the company’s latest Market Watch report for calendar Q3 of 2020, it found that GPU shipments increased 10.8% year-over-year. AMD, Nvidia, and Intel all saw quarter-over-quarter increases as well.

As Jon Peddie notes in the breakdown of the report, GPU shipments are a leading indicator. Manufacturers purchase them before shipping PCs to consumers. This means that the market expects demand for PCs to remain high through the foreseeable future. The overall PC market increased 9.47% year-over-year, according to Jon Peddie.

Discrete GPUs from AMD and Nvidia were up 13.44% quarter-over-quarter. That jump is partially due to historical trends that lead to consumers purchasing more discrete GPUs in Q3 than Q2. But it also reflects the launch of Nvidia’s RTX 3000-series video cards in September. Those products flew off shelves and are still difficult to find.

Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 Ti Founders Edition review: Spectacular 1440p

After a high-end shootout between Nvidia and AMD resulted in not one, not two, but six different graphics cards released with sky-high $500+ price tags, the next generation is finally trickling down to more affordable price points with the launch of the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti on December 2. This excellent GPU may actually be the most exciting entry in Nvidia’s RTX 30-series yet.

At $400, the RTX 3060 Ti costs significantly more than the 60- and 70-class GeForce options of yesteryear (anybody remember the $330 GTX 970 and $380 GTX 1070?), continuing a trend we’ve seen in recent graphics card families. But if you can look past the name, you’ll find the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti delivers a lot of value, pumping out frames faster than last generation’s $800 GeForce RTX 2080 Super—the second-fastest graphics card in the world up until a few months ago—for half the price. Yes,

Up Over 120% in 2020, NVIDIA Stock Deserves Its High Price Tag

NVIDIA (NASDAQ:NVDA) CEO Jensen Huang said his company was “firing on all cylinders” during the three months ended Oct. 25. It’s easy to see why. Revenue and adjusted earnings per share exploded 57% and 63% higher year over year on gaming and data center strength, easily clearing the bar set a few months prior and setting new quarterly sales records.  

Semiconductor stocks are cyclical, and at some point the company’s recent momentum will take a breather. Thus, at nearly 20 times full-year expected sales, NVIDIA shares are expensive. But this latest upswing may just be getting started as a wave of new hardware upgrades and new tech innovation gets underway. This stock deserves its ultrapremium pricing.

Firing on all cylinders, but room for improvement

Huang’s comment that NVIDIA is “firing on all cylinders” doesn’t tell the whole story. The gaming segment — graphics processing units (GPUs)

Cyberpunk 2077 Ray Tracing Will Be Exclusive To Nvidia At Launch

Even though it might be just as difficult to find stock, AMD’s new RX 6800 and RX 6800XT graphics cards offer come competition to Nvidia’s latest offerings. But if you’re planning to pick up a new GPU specifically for Cyberpunk 2077, you might want to stick to the Nvidia for now.

CD Projekt Red has revealed that Cyberpunk 2077 will not support any ray tracing on AMD GPUs when the game launches on December 10. Responding to a query about requirements for AMD cards, community lead Marcin Momot explained that support will come post-launch.

“Not for the release but we are working together with AMD to introduce this feature as soon as we can,” Momot replied.
