Geeksphone has been teasing (or “prophesying”, if you buy into the messianic imagery the company is using) its “Revolution” smartphone that offers Firefox OS and Android dual-boot capabilities, and now we have a ship date and a price tag. The device lands in Spain on February 20th ahead of MWC 2014 and will cost 289 euros (or about $395 USD). There’s no word on if or when the Revolution will arrive in the U.S. The 4.7-inch smartphone features a dual-core Intel Atom Z2560 (up to 1.6GHz) processor with 1GB of RAM and 4GB of onboard storage. There are 8PM rear- and 1.3MP... Read more...
Geeksphone has been working with Mozilla on Firefox OS handsets since the operating system’s developer preview was in the works, and the company’s Peak and Keon smartphones offer solid specs and features for lower-end devices. Both run on Qualcomm Snapdragon chips, have large-enough displays, and have reasonable cameras and storage. Also, the phones are orange and white, evoking Firefox, and that’s just plain cool. But Geeksphone has another smartphone in the works called Revolution. The name is perhaps a bit of an overstatement, and the picture of a pregnant woman as the Revolution... Read more...

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...
The M-Audio Revolution 7.1 Viva la revolución! "Burned in" by Robert Maloney June 23rd, 2003 The history of the audio card industry can be summed up by saying there has always been Creative Lab's SoundBlaster line, and then there have been the "others".  When Aureal disappeared from the picture in 2000, it seemed to spell the end of any true competition for the audio giant.  Other companies just couldn't risk going up against Creative's "beat 'em or buy 'em" strategy.  On one hand, that might not have really been too much of a bad thing.  I mean,...
