Nvidia’s GTX 960 review: Maximum mileage from miniature Maxwell

Maxwell
Nvidia has just launched its new Maxwell-based GTX 960, bridging the gap between the budget GTX 750 Ti and the upper echelon GTX 970 and 980. Is this $200 GPU the power house midrange gamers have been looking for?

Nvidia uses its new Maxwell GPU and global illumination to prove the lunar landings weren’t faked

Nvidia, with a rather gifted bit of marketing, has used the new Maxwell-based GTX 980 and GTX 970 graphics cards… to prove that we did indeed land some astronauts on the Moon. By using Maxwell’s new voxel-based global illumination (VXGI) tech, plus a version of Unreal Engine 4 with global illumination enabled, Nvidia reconstructed the famous photo of Buzz Aldrin climbing down the ladder of the Apollo 11 lunar lander in 3D — and apparently, they found evidence that will forever silence the conspiratorial lunar landing loons.
