Proud of your broadband transfer rates, are you? Have a glance at this. NTT Communications Corporation has just announced that it has surpassed 200 Gigabits per second (Gbps) on its transpacific network, which is pegged as "the highest bandwidth currently available." For those unaware, NTT Com is the largest telecommunications company in Asia and one of the largest in the world, and it's responsible for providing enterprises, ISPs and other telecoms throughout Asia, North and South America and Europe with data transport capabilities.Thankfully, this feat is more likely than ever to benefit those...

Fudo over at The Inquirer reports that their sources are indicating ATI's next generation R600 flagship GPU will feature a full 64 physical pipelines. Looking at the current number of pipelines in NVIDIA's flagship cards, there is little doubt that the company's upcoming G80 GPU will need to have a healthy increase in pipelines in order to remain competitive. Unfortunately, little to no details are known about the architectures for either vendor's part at this time. As a result, it is nearly impossible to say either GPU will have an advantage over the other. One thing is certain... Read more...
For those of you who are interested in the technology that goes into making a cutting edge engine like id software's Doom 3 engine, Intel has a bit of a good read in store for you. Make some time and get some coffee, there's plenty of info to pour over. "The articles below provide an overview of the SIMD optimized rendering pipeline of animated models which is equivalent, but superior in performance to the one used in the computer game DOOM III. This improved rendering pipeline is implemented in the computer game Quake 4. Most of the rendering pipeline runs on the CPU while several of the... Read more...
Looks like ATi is gearing up to give NVIDIA a run for their money in the integrated video motherboard chipset space.  X600-like graphics on board; smells like it has HTPC all over it.  The Inq posted the skinny on this yesterday but I was too lazy to snap this up at the time... sincere apologies. Really...The next generation of chipsets will feature a new integrated core with four pixel pipelines and it should be relatively close to the X600 performance. It might end up a little bit slower due to slower memory performance from the integrated memory, but it should be in that range. This... Read more...
