NVIDIA Geforce 7800 GFX

Filed under
Hardware

WE SAW A NICE document which reveals that Nvidia is going to call its next chip the Geforce 7800 GFX.

And the graphics chip firm will start using Geforce series seven name for all the cards based on G70, we can reveal.

As for the specs, the Geforce 7800 GFX will be clocked at 430MHz core with 1400MHz memory. It will be equipped with 256MB of 256 bit memory, at least the version we are telling you about will be. It will also feature two DVI's, VIVO and HDTV support.

We are talking about a 24-pipeline card capable of supporting Nvidia intelisample marchitecture 4.0, CineFX 4.0, Ultra shadow marchitecture version two, pure video and 64-bit texture filtering and blending.

We don’t have any idea why you need 64-bit texture filtering nor blending but we guess developers do.

The document wafted under our noses claims double performance over Geforce 6800 Ultra but that might be the case just in some bottleneck scenarios.

We also learned that the card will score more than 7800 marks in 3Dmark05 and will arrive in less then two weeks and counting.

Nvidia briefed its NDA press in San Francisco about it so a lot of detail is out there in the hands of people wearing gags.

Until R520, this will sure be the fastest thing around, that we can confirm. µ

Privacy and Tails 1.3

Privacy and security are difficult to come by in our progressively connected world. Advertisers track our browsing habits, employers monitor productivity and government agencies monitor our communications. Most operating systems do not take steps to protect our privacy or our identities, two things which are increasingly difficult to guard. Tails is a Linux distribution that is designed to help us stay anonymous on-line and protect our identity. Tails is a Debian-based live disc that we can use to scrub our files of meta data, browse the web with some degree of anonymity and send private messages. According to the project's website, "Tails is a live operating system, that you can start on almost any computer from a DVD, USB stick, or SD card. It aims at preserving your privacy and anonymity, and helps you to: use the Internet anonymously and circumvent censorship; all connections to the Internet are forced to go through the Tor network; leave no trace on the computer you are using unless you ask it explicitly; use state-of-the-art cryptographic tools to encrypt your files, emails and instant messaging."

Review: Lenovo X1 Carbon 3rd generation and Linux

Considering that the fix for the first issue is widely available in most distributions and the second one is only a modprobe away, I’d say this laptop is pretty darned Linux compatible. I’m currently running Fedora 21 without any problems. Read more
