K2's proprietary audio hardware effortlessly produces 40 watts of room-filling high-fidelity digital audio,... Read more...
HTPCs aren't anything new. They've been around forever, it seems, and largely unchanged. But Acer's new living room PC is quite different, or, at least it's different than the norm. It's shaped differently, and ships with a very atypical control mechanism. It's the Revo RL100 media center, available with or without Blu-ray and designed to be the heart of your digital living room. The system was initially announced months back, but now it's available for Americans who need a machine to pipe Hulu and other web-based programs directly to their TV. It ships with Acer's clear.fi wireless networking,... Read more...
If we consider companies like LSI and their competitors, like Adaptec and AMCC (3Ware), you'll note that they're in a unique position in this storage technology migration, in that they can almost take an agnostic stance, in terms of which media type and market opportunity they decide to resource development efforts in.  For players like LSI, with a wealth of HBA controller IP at their disposal, they can relatively easily adapt and re-tool their technologies to service NAND Flash SSD memory structures and bring compelling solutions to market as market demand develops. The LSI WarpDrive that... Read more...
When we sit back and look at the evolving storage market and SSD technologies, there are a couple of competitive camps that are trying to gain traction, in what is without question one of the largest growth areas in storage. The major players in solid state storage solutions have emerged from old-line, incumbents in hard disk media and then also a new breed, specializing exclusively in SSD technology. Major memory manufacturers like Intel, Micron and Samsung, along with specialty shops like OCZ and Corsair, are making a push with their expertise in memory, whereas players like Western...

Consumer-grade SSDs are fast, without a doubt, but those who demand extreme performance at any cost, or perhaps for enterprise applications, the fastest SSDs on the market are PCI Express-based, like the ioDrive and ioXtreme from Fusion-io, for example. OCZ also offers their Z-Drive with similar performance, though while these speed demons are available for purchase, only a fraction of consumers can afford their sky high asking prices. As with most technology though, wait a few months and something faster, smaller, and more affordable with come along to shake things up a bit. At Computex 2010,... Read more...
We have been talking about NVIDIA's Ion since late last year when news first broke of the ultra small form factor platform. At the time, NVIDIA's tiny Atom-powered prototype system wasn't even called Ion yet, but images of the miniscule motherboard that would eventually be used in the reference platform had already surfaced and the community was buzzing with interest. One of the major concerns with most netbooks and nettops was their relatively weak integrated graphics solutions, and Ion would potentially address that concern.Around the time when Ion was first announced, there was some scuttlebutt...

It's been a while since we looked at AGEIA's PPU, and things have slowly started looking better and better for PhysX as time rolled on.  Perhaps the largest boon to the whole PPU concept thus far might be Epic's support for AGEIA's APEX (Adaptive Physics EXtensions) in their Unreal Tournament 3 Engine, which will likely end up at the heart of many upcoming titles.It seems that APEX powered UT3 levels, originally slated to see the light of day in early 2008, are coming home for the holidays!“To showcase the power of the PhysX UT3 Mod-Kit and the PhysX processor, AGEIA Technologies is rolling...

The Revolution is over. Today Nintendo has announced that the console formerly known as "Revolution", shall officially be called "Wii"(pronounced "we"). "While the code-name "Revolution" expressed our direction, Wii represents the answer. Wii will break down that wall that separates video game players from everybody else. Wii will put people more in touch with their games... and each other. But you're probably asking: What does the name mean?" I liked Revolution. It was a good name, and went well with what the console aimed for in terms of gameplay and diverse consumer... Read more...
Well, not officially, but the latest rumor has the system's CPU clocked at 729MHz, and the GPU at 243MHz(Compared to the Gamecube's 485/162). Nintendo has repeatedly stated that they have no intention of waging any sort of hardware war with Sony or Microsoft. "So, in terms of raw next-gen horsepower Revolution clearly can't compare with the Xbox 360's three symmetrical cores running at 3.2GHz or the PS3's Cell chip. But then again, Nintendo has repeatedly stressed that they aren't looking to compete with the tech heavies at MS and Sony. The result... Read more...
IGN has apparently received some final specifications for Nintendo's upcoming Revolution gaming console. Surprisingly, the Revolution's "Broadway" CPU will be clocked at an underwhelming 729MHz and the "Hollywood" GPU will be clocked at 243MHz. Compared with previous generation consoles, the Revolution fares extremely well. However, in the midst of Xbox 360 and PS3 the Revolution seems to be too conservative to be any threat at all for hardcore (adult) gamers and appears to be more like a GameCube 2. Looking at the small footprint and size of the case, it's no wonder we have... Read more...
The console enthusiast website GAF has posted some very interesting images of Nintendo's upcoming Revolution gaming console. Supposedly taken from a recruiting kit which was scheduled to be used after the Revolution console launches, the images show the progression of the hardware from conceptual design to the final appearance. As a bonus, there are also a number of images showing various aspects of game development in their early stages. I must say whatever designers Nintendo has now - from GB Micro, to the 20th Anniversary ads, to DS Lite and... Read more...
