Thanks to yesterday's announcement, we know that NVIDIA will be pushing out Tegra chips annually, or at least that's the plan at this point, but what about GPUs? Like the title says, the next big thing coming down the pipeline according the NVIDIA's CEO Jen-Hsun Huang will come along sometime next year, and it's codenamed Kepler. Kepler will be manufactured using a 28nm process technology and provide users up to four times the double-precision floating point performance per watt of NVIDIA's current-generation Fermi GPU architecture, which is the foundation of...

Ever since TDK issued a promising new line of solid state drives back in May, the drive and optical media manufacturer has remained eerily quiet on further plans. According to a new report, however, the company may be aiming to compete with the likes of Seagate, Western Digital and Hitachi in the "big boy" desktop HDD space.If all goes well, we could see hard drives as large as 2TB in the desktop 3.5" arena and 620GB in the notebook-friendly 2.5" format by January of 2010. The information is being gleaned from a recent presentation to financial analysts. As it stands, the "current highest density... Read more...
As technology enthusiasts, we all understand very clearly that bigger, better and faster is always around the bend, but this here roadmap sure makes it tough to bite on a 160GB SSD at present time. According to a slide outed by VR-Zone, Intel is planning to double the capacity of its existing SSD lineup by shifting from 50 nanometer to 34 nanometer process technology.The future family will include a trio of capacities for the lauded X18-M and X25-M MLC (multi-level cell) solid state drives: 80GB, 160GB and 320GB. Furthermore, the high-end X25-E -- which utilizes SLC (single-level cell) tech --... Read more...
Doyle Drive is the antiquated and dangerous southern approach to the Golden Gate Bridge. It's actually a steel-truss bridge and has been rated as the most dangerous span in California. Most in the SF Bay Area are aware of this. And although geared toward rural drivers, SafeRoadMaps.org, a project of the Center for Excellence in Rural Safety (CERS) aims to help educate drivers as to the safety of their roads. CERS is itself a joint program between the University of Minnesota’s Hubert H. Humphrey Institute of Public Affairs State and Local Policy Program and the Center for Transportation Studies,...

As with all rumors, please take the following news item with a grain of salt until we can receive official confirmation or denial from AMD.As we've previously reported, AMD is rumored to be shipping their B3 stepping Phenoms, and it seems that we might see 2.5GHz models before April Fool's Day:“AMD is planning to launch B3 stepping quad-core Phenom 9050 series CPUs including 9850, 9750, 9650, 9550 and 9150 within the next 1-2 weeks, however the top-end 9850 will only reach a core frequency of 2.5GHz, instead of the original goal of 2.6Ghz. The company expects to be able to deliver higher core frequencies... Read more...
From the wild rumor and speculation department comes a tale of two future AMD platforms aimed at corporate customers.  Like any great love triangle, there's a(n alleged) problem: lack of resources to properly develop both at once.In this case, we're talking about AMD's upcoming Bulldozer architecture, which will follow likely follow the trend of being a server chip first, then a desktop chip second, and the laptop Fusion platform dubbed Swift.  Both parts of the enterprise market are extremely lucrative and very valuable to AMD, and thus it appears that there was a lot of heated debate...

The foreign website Tweakers.net has posted a supposedly leaked roadmap of AMD's "4x4" platform for your viewing pleasure. Although you'll need to arm yourself with your favorite online translator to grasp the content, the chart outlining the various pending products is universal. It will certainly be interesting to see what kind of performance we can expect from future products like the 3GHz FX-74. One thing which does seem a bit odd here though is the reference of that CPU being made with a 90u process as AMD will have already been manufacturing some cores at 65u. Per... Read more...
PC Watch has managed to get their hands on a new roadmap from AMD which outlines the company's strategy for desktop, mobile, and server platforms up through 2008. Unfortunately, the article itself is not English so you'll have to arm yourself with your favorite online translator. However, the roadmaps are a universal language and certainly contain some interesting tidbits of information. Mention of things such as DDR3, HypertTransport 3, and a wealth of new sockets should be more than enough reason to go take a peek at this roadmap.... Read more...
The Asian hardware website Hardspell has written a brief article (translator required) that analyzes a supposedly leaked ATI roadmap slide. Glancing at the image which was seemingly stolen from another website called HKEPC, it appears as though ATI will have an 80u core for every product range except the flagship part. Here, the X1900 XTX will remain the top enthusiast part despite the supposed launch of a new flagship GPU from NVIDIA in the coming weeks.... Read more...
Although we didn't get the opportunity to make it to this year's summer IDF, Intel has made a number of interesting and newsworthy annoucments about their processor roadmap that we're sure many of you may have already caught wind of.  Of particular note of course is the fact that Intel is completely re-architecting their Desktop Dual Core CPU, moving away from the Prescott Dual Core, to a 4 issue core with a much shorter 14 stage pipeline. Our friends at Intel sent us a few tid-bits from the IDF Day 1 slide-set.     We'll summarize things a bit for you here and touch on the... Read more...
I think today has been the coldest day yet in my neck of the woods(and I do mean woods). Usually two overclocked computers will do the job of warming my room, but not today. So here I sit, delivering you the news with multiple layers of clothing. I know Wednesday and Friday are the days for game related news, but there really isn't much in the way of need to know news, so I may have to rework the days. Well, time to get these stiff fingers working... Hardware Roadmaps For 2005 @ PC Stats "Wondering what's in store from the computer industry in 2005? PCstats had a look at some roadmaps from...
