"SK Hynix Inc today introduced the world’s fastest 2Znm 8Gb(Gigabit) GDDR6(Graphics DDR6) DRAM. The product operates with an I/O data rate of 16Gbps(Gigabits per second) per pin, which is the industry’s fastest. With a forthcoming high-end graphics card of 384-bit I/Os, this DRAM processes up to 768GB(Gigabytes) of graphics data per second."

More memory bandwidth than a 2 module HBM2 graphics card from any competitor.

Meant to post this in the Volta thread, oh well.

After leaking about the existence of the card (and AMD's RX 500 lineup), MyDrivers unveils all the important details about the new low-end GeForce GT 1030:

- Pascal architecture
- 512 SPs
- 2 or 4 GB 128-bit GDDR5
- Similar performance to GTX 750 Ti
- Only 35W (RX 550 2 GB is 50W)
- Same price as RX 550
- May 8 launch
- No GeForce GT 1040 (4 = bad luck in China)

Smells like GV102......

35W GTX 1030, please. I hope we get a low-profile and heatsink only, if such a thing is possible at that TDP.

Finally an updated entry level dGPU for desktops and notebooks. GT 1030 is only 30-35W according to MyDrivers. :)

NVIDIA to Support 4K Netflix on GTX 10 Series Cards

Up to now, only users with Intel's latest Kaby Lake architecture processors could enjoy 4K Netflix due to some strict DRM requirements. Now, NVIDIA is taking it upon itself to allow users with one of its GTX 10 series graphics cards (absent the 1050, at least for now) to enjoy some 4K Netflix and chillin'. Though you really do seem to have to go through some hoops to get there, none of these should pose a problem.

The requirements to enable Netflix UHD playback, as per NVIDIA, are so:
  • NVIDIA Driver version exclusively provided via Microsoft Windows Insider Program (currently 381.74).
  • No other GeForce driver will support this functionality at this time
  • If you are not currently registered for WIP, follow this link for instructions to join: https://insider.windows.com/
  • NVIDIA Pascal based GPU, GeForce GTX 1050 or greater with minimum 3GB memory
  • HDCP 2.2 capable monitor(s). Please see the additional section below if you are using multiple monitors and/or multiple GPUs.
  • Microsoft Edge browser or Netflix app from the Windows Store
  • Approximately 25Mbps (or faster) internet connection.

Sad that its restricted from the 1030 or 2gb 1050 as those are better htpc cards

what do you guys think will be the longevity of a GTX1080 starting from today? 3-4 years?
i am waiting to see what VEGA has to offer, but i will probably get a used GTX1080 which will be a huge upgrade over my GTX680. question is, how long will it still be good enough for 1080p?
i aim for 120Hz gaming, but i realize for new newer games i would have to make do with 60FPS.

For a conclusive answer, hard to say, because how software will change is unpredictable. But look to historical trends: How has NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 served you? Right now, it is about the same age as your projected use of GeForce GTX 1080.

its fantastic and still kicking ass! since i'm not playing too demanding games. i'm holding off playing Witcher 3, DA:I, DE:MD and FO4 till i upgrade.

I'd love to see an Ultrabook style notebook running one of Intel's 15W 4C/8T CPUs (KBL-R) + GeForce MX150 later this year. ASUS, are you reading this? :D

Doubtful. That "Vega 10" 590 is rather suspect having GDDR5 and also the 1160 having less cores AND clock speed and still managing to be at the 1080 level is tough to think is possible.
