When Intel Corp. site location managers gather later this year to decide where they want to build their next $2 billion chip manufacturing plant, they'll have no shortage of prospects looking for their business.
NVIDIA, however, has released its new drivers that include some interesting features. In addition to Xinerama and OpenGL 2.0 support, CoolBits also accompanies this latest package. For those who haven't heard of or never used CoolBits, this is a NVIDIA overclocking utility for Microsoft Windows (until now) which could be enabled by a simple registry tweak and allows the user to substantially increase their VPU and memory speeds
The use of booth babes in trade shows is nothing new. However, Computex uses booth babes for more than just decoration. Unlike other trade shows where the girls just stand around and look good, the babes are Computex can be divided into four working groups.
From the same people that brought you Build an $800 Gaming PC, now present The Kitchen PC. "A sprinkle of this and a spinkle of that..."
Graphics manufacturer to present its new chip and give live demonstrations at San Francisco launch event in three weeks.
We know how you feel. Your computer is getting a little long in the tooth, and you just can't play the latest games anymore. Can we turn eight C-notes into a gaming system worth its salt and build a forward-looking platform for future expansion at the same time?
Industry's first double-gate transistor model enables smaller, more powerful silicon products that use less energy opening the door for the design of new generations of novel microchips.
Day one of Computex has already been quite eventful; we've seen yet another working R520 demo performing some impressive H.264 GPU acceleration, as well as motherboards based on NVIDIA's new C51G. All that and much more in this Computex article...
NVIDIA announced that their entire line of NVIDIA nForce media and communications processors for AMD64 platforms fully support the new AMD Athlon 64 X2 dual-core processor.
Statistical information on injuries related to notebook computer use is scarce, but doctors report a steady stream of new patients who've overdone it on the machines.
Even if ATI Crossfire defeats SLI, Nvidia has some secret horses for a new race. It is working on something that we know as SLI 2.
First look: Two processors in one Athlon chip give performance extra oomph. You now have a choice of dual-core processors; and based on PC World tests, the winner is clearly AMD's new Athlon 64 X2.
ATI's MultiVPU solution dubbed the Crossfire will see its official debut tomorrow, but has it been worth the wait and how does it compare to NVIDIA's?
Tomorrow, AMD will launch its first processors operating with “two brains” for desktop PCs, five days after its bigger rival Intel unveiled its own dual-core line-up.
Hiper (High Performance Group) recently released the Type-R modular blue line HPU-4B580 power supply unit, which is competitively priced and claims to be able to offer everyone what they want and require. Hiper was nice enough to have us take a look at the unit, so we will shortly know if it can stand up to its claims.
Trying to take the focus off secretly adding DRM to chips, Intel announced developments in a tiny new form of science for the potential to lift future generations of its processors.
Most of the attention in notebook computing has been on full-size models, the hefty laptops with 15- or 17-inch screens that can replace desktop units. But a spate of new ultraportable notebooks have also recently emerged, in the category often called subnotebooks or ultralight laptops.
The tech demos Sony presented at last week’s Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) weren’t running on the actual RSX GPU but on an upcoming next-generation PC chip, which shares similar capabilities to the PlayStation 3 GPU.
IBM and others are racing to create chameleon chips that change to suit the job. Even by the standards of the Lone Star State, the claim by two Texas researchers can seem a trifle grandiose. "We're reinventing the computer."
With its C7 processor, Via Technologies hopes to eliminate its performance credibility gap and allow notebook makers to come out with light notebooks for under $800.
