Nvidia pumps more horsepower into flagship graphics chips

Agam Shah | Sept. 22, 2014
Nvidia's flagship GeForce GTX 980 is faster and more power efficient than last year's GTX 780.

Nvidia has included features that make streaming and broadcasting games faster and easier. Nvidia's latest GeForce graphics cards are already able to stream games from PCs to the company's Shield handheld console gaming tablet, and 4K streaming could come in the future. New features allow for smoother game-play broadcasting on Twitch.tv, a live video-game streaming service that is being acquired by Amazon in a deal worth $970 million.

Nvidia competes in the GPU market with Advanced Micro Devices, whose chips are used in the PlayStation and Xbox One gaming consoles. The GTX GPUs compete with AMD's latest Radeon R9 graphics chips, which have proprietary technologies to boost gaming.
