Bringing desktop gaming power to the notebook

Members of the press checking out gaming notebooks powered by the GTX 980.
At the regional press conference in Singapore, members of the press had the opportunity to check out gaming notebooks powered by the GTX 980.

Mobile gamers have always had a performance trade-off on their gaming notebooks. No matter how powerful the GPU is, it’s always a tad slower than its desktop cousin. But, not anymore!

NVIDIA has announced the GeForce GTX 980 for the notebook, giving mobile gamers nearly the same GPU performance they get on their desktop gaming PCs.

Built on the Maxwell architecture, the GPU can run the latest games, power multiply screens and even support VR. Aorus, ASUS, MSI, and Clevo are among the notebook vendors that will be rolling out gaming notebooks packed with this GPU in the coming days.

 

Giving researchers instant feedback with immersive visualisation technologies

At GTC South Asia, Monash University shared how it has leveraged GPU technology to transform the way research is done. Entelechy Asia catches up with the university’s Professor Paul Bonnington (Professor and Director of E-research Centre) and Dr Wojtek James Goscinski (Coordinator of E-research Centre) to find out more about the deployment and how NVIDIA GPUs have made a great difference in research.
