Nvidia's Ira demo running on the Logan mobile chip

With its new Project Logan mobile system-on-chip, Nvidia has not so much raised the bar as blown the roof off expectations of computer and game graphics on mobile devices. In an impressive display of Logan's "oomph," the company has shown it running Ira, an incredibly detailed and effects-heavy demo of a human head animated in real time. The demo was itself unveiled in recent months, and previously shown running on Nvidia's super-heavyweight GeForce Titan graphics card.  Read More

The Nvidia Quadro K6000 flagship professional GPU

After that though, its release date passed, and we didn't hear anything new about the gaming-centered device.
