According to info that we managed to get from Nvidia, GPU accelerated flash will be officially introduced on October 5th.
The guys from notebookjournal.de have posted a Youtube video showing an internal flash player build running a trailer of the latest Star Trek movie in 720p. The trailer was running on an ION-based netbook which had no trouble in pulling off smooth playback.
Just like we disclosed in the first article "nVidia GT300 specifications revealed – it's a cGPU!", nVidia GT300 chip is a computational beast like you have never seen before. In fact, we would go as far out and state that this is as closest as GPU can be to a CPU in the whole history of graphics technology. Now, time will tell whatever GT300 was the much needed revolution.
Beside the regular NV70 and GT300 codenames [codename for the GPU], nVidia's insiders called the GPU architecture - Fermi. Enrico Fermi was an Italian physicist who is credited with the invention of nuclear reactor. That brings us to one of codenames we heard for one of the GT300 board itself - "reactor".
When it comes to boards themselves, you can expect to see configurations with 1.5, 3.0 GB and 6GB of GDDR5 memory, but more on that a little bit later.
GIGABYTE today announces a world record P16877 3DMark Vantage score for a GeForce GTX 260 and an incredible GPU score of 15297 for the global launch of the GPU overclocking competition, Beat Me If You Dare. GIGABYTE’s in-house overclocking team presents an unrivaled GPU clock of 1100 MHz and memory clock of 1400 MHz. The scores have been posted on the Beat Me if You Dare event website and contestants around the world are invited to challenge GIGABYTE’s scores for cash and prizes.
As real as it can get. Nvidia will show its DirectX 11 card that we used to call GT300 and that everyone internally calls Fermi. The hardware is real and we will learn much more about it tomorrow. We expect that Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang will demonstrate the card at the GTC keynote that should start at 1.00 PM Pacific time or roughly 10 PM Central European time.
Fermi will concentrate a lot of a computing processing and it should be very fast with DirectX 11 and older games. Fermi has a lot of cache and supports instructions that use to be common only for CPU and many people believe that this is a hybrid between a graphics card and a CPU. This might be the direction that Nvidia will be heading.
Nvidia launched its second-generation GPU computing architecture on Wednesday, code-named "Fermi". Oak Ridge National Laboratory will design a supercomputer based on the Fermi, an executive said.
The "Fermi" announcement kicked off Nvidia's GPU Technology Conference, which will run the remainder of this week in Silicon Valley.
ASUS, today unveiled the first motherboard in its newly-developed "TUF" (The Ultimate Force) Series, the SABERTOOTH 55i. The TUF Series is specially developed to meet the heavy computing demands of power users and perform well even under extreme conditions. Such computer enthusiasts often demand high-quality motherboard components and the most stable computing platforms. To achieve uncompromising stability, TUF Series motherboards have undergone a more stringent testing program than what most motherboard producers currently undertake.
HP APPEARS to be having major problems with its entire line of Core i7 PCs.
According to HP's support forums, the range is fast developing a reputation for locking up, freezing and throwing BSOD's.
The forum has more than 100 pages of customers that have shipped back their machines and received replacement units several times only to see the exact same problem.
The problem appears to affect the entire range of HP's elite Pavilion Series using Core i7 CPUs.
This multi-GPU beast more appropriately known as Radeon HD 5870 X2 was shown in a meeting room running CryTek’s latest CryEngine 3 development build at very smooth framerates. More specifically, the engine was running at 1920x1200 with AA turned off (as CryEngine has never needed manual AA) and the Screen Space Ambient Occlusion (SSAO) rendering technique was significantly more pronounced than in Crysis and Crysis Warhead.
There is a rather lively discussion in our forums about NVIDIA’s recent decision to disable PhysX when an ATI card is present in your system. This all started with the release of NVIDIA’s 186+ drivers and, if you follow the link in the forums, you’ll see where the reasoning behind the decision is explained by NVIDIA’s customer care center.
Nvidia supports GPU accelerated Physx on NVIDIA GPUs while using NVIDIA GPUs for graphics. NVIDIA performs extensive Engineering, Development, and QA work that makes Physx a great experience for customers. For a variety of reasons - some development expense some quality assurance and some business reasons NVIDIA will not support GPU accelerated Physx with NVIDIA GPUs while GPU rendering is happening on non- NVIDIA GPUs.
