Nvidia Announces GameStream, New GTX 780 Ti GPU

 
Yes, Nvidia has announced a new graphics card. But the company also has a new way to use its Shield device with your TV.


Nvidia had quite a few announcements in Montreal this morning, including its new G-Sync technology and one-click streaming to Twitch. But the company also announced a new way to stream PC games to the television with Shield, and of course, a brand new graphics card.


GameStream is a new Nvidia technology aimed at users of its portable gaming device, the Shield. At launch, the Shield was able to stream PC games, but only in beta form. Starting October 28, you'll also have the ability to use the Shield as a sort of streaming console, as certain third-party controllers will work with the device. If you're keeping track, that's a whole lot of streaming--the PC to the Shield to the TV, and then throw in a controller--but a live demo did work smoothly.

Also starting on October 28, Nvidia is offering $50 off the price of a Shield and free copies of Assassin's Creed 4 and Splinter Cell Blacklist with the purchase of a GTX 660 or 760 GPU. If you purchase a new GTX 770, 780, or Titan card, you'll receive $100 off a Shield and also get a copy of Batman: Arkham Origins.

 Last, but certainly not least, Nvidia showed off its brand new GTX 780 Ti GPU today. Unfortunately, the company was fairly quiet on hard details, saying they would let "reviewers" take a deeper look at the card.
