It seems like just yesterday having 2GB of RAM made a system an ultimate gaming rig, and now here comes Super Talent with their 4GB DDR2-800 kit. At first glance one might wonder if Super Talent is shipping memory kits with 4 1GB sticks, but thankfully the answer is no. There are two 2GB DDR2-800 memory modules in the kit, and it looks like they'll be hitting the street for about $438 a kit. "San Jose, California - March 26, 2007 -- Super Talent Technology, a leading manufacturer of DRAM memory modules and flash products, today announced a new 4 GigaByte 800MHz DDR2 memory kit that is ideal...

It looks like the trend of making more energy efficient PCs has spread from common laptops, desktops and servers, all the way up to supercomputers.  The system is designed for defense and scientific research. "Called Maxwell, the computer has been built at the University of Edinburgh and uses field programmable gate arrays (FPGA) in place of conventional processors. Its Scottish developers believe Maxwell represents a new generation of compact and energy-efficient computers. Unlike ordinary general-purpose processors, FPGA chips can be programmed to perform very specific tasks. Once that programming... Read more...
Super Talent Announces SATA Solid State Disk Drives Flash Based Drives in up to 128GigaByte Capacity in Three Standard Form Factors San Jose, California - March 14, 2007 -- Super Talent Technology, a leading manufacturer of DRAM memory modules and flash products, today announced a full range of Solid State Disk (SSD) drives with an industry standard Serial ATA interface. This new line of SATA drives is offered in industry standard 1.8-inch, 2.5-inch, and 3.5-inch form factors, making these drives 100% compatible with conventional hard disk drives. However, these products are built with only solid... Read more...
While walking the show floor at this year's Consumer Electronics Show yesterday, we came across quite a few exciting pieces of technology. We thought this one in particular would be of interest to the videophiles among you, so we wanted to get some pics and info posted right away.  Feast our eyes on LG's Blu-Ray / HD-DVD internal Super Multi drive: If you look close at the second picture, you can see the dual-laser pick-up assemblies which gives the drive its broad compatibility.  Representatives from LG told us the drive will retail for $1199 and it should be available in...

If you've ever wondered what some of today's top supercomputers are up to, this article on CNN explains many of the more common applications.  Some of them are used for tasks like forecasting weather, designing safer more fuel-efficient cars, mapping DNA, exploring the cosmos and even calculating the curvature of Pringles potato chips. "Supercomputers allow researchers to do in real time -- meaning days, weeks or months -- what could not be done during a lifetime with a single personal computer. "The amount of data that some of these... Read more...
Silicon -- the archetypal semiconductor -- has at long last been shown to demonstrate superconductivity. By substituting 9% of the silicon atoms with boron atoms, Physicists in France have found that the resistance of the material drops sharply when cooled below 0.35 K (Nature 444 465).

Cray XT4 Supercomputer Debuts With Petascale Capability Significant Backlog of Large Orders System Built on Cray XT Infrastructure Represents a Milestone for Cray's Adaptive Supercomputing Vision... SEATTLE, WA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- November 13, 2006 -- Cray Inc. (NASDAQ: CRAY) today announced the availability of its next-generation massively parallel processing (MPP) system, the Cray XT4TM supercomputer. The powerful new supercomputer, previously code-named "Hood," is designed to easily and efficiently scale to a peak performance of more than one petaflops (1,000 trillion floating-point...

Ever wonder what other HH readers might classify as a "good day"?  Some go fishing and the old adage applies, "even a bad day fishing is better than a good day at work".  Meanwhile others go flying.  And a good day flying is pretty great.  Check our Utah from a few thousand feet up at DerMeister's perspective...   Nice views Der.  Purple Mountains Majesty (and canyons too) - you can't beat it....

Recent HH Forum n00b sladesurfer shows us how it is done.  Slade's super clean cabling job would make even ol' BW envious.  Tip number 1 - route those wires and tubes anywhere but over the motherboard... Boy's got some water coolin' going on in there too.  Very niiiice slade-man, very nice.... Read more...
IBM has stepped up to the plate with plans to build the world's fastest supercomputer. Codenamed Roadrunner, the computer will be built in a US laboratory, and will contain Sony's Cell chip, which will be used in Sony's Playstation 3. Running at "petaflop speeds", the machine should be able to process 1.6 thousand trillion calculations per second, which is much faster than the current computing champ, Blue Gene/L. "By comparison, BlueGene/L is capable of mere "teraflop" (trillion calculations per second) speeds. Installed... Read more...
Well, I guess someone at the music company finally has seen YouTube, and figured out it's easier to sell banner ads and give music away for free than it is to hunt down every college student who went to Kazaa and grabbed two Pink Floyd album cuts... "The new service, known as SpiralFrog, represents a departure from the 99-cent per-song business model made popular by Apple's iTunes store. It will begin operations in December. Universal's support reflects music companies' willingness to experiment as they try to capture some profit from the boom in digital distribution, which is still dominated... Read more...
There's an interesting review on-line today over at the Tech Report.  They've taken a look at Super Talent's 2.5"" IDE flash hard drive.  There's nothing revolutionary about this drive's performance (other than some impressive seek times), but it's the concept that's intriguing.  8GB of storage in a standard 2.5" HD form factor, with no moving parts.  It may be a while before we're all running solid state hard drives, but here's a tiny glimpse of what's to come. "IN AN ATTEMPT TO improve performance and extend battery life,... Read more...
DDR2 memory technology has been pushing the envelope in terms of memory clock speeds and tighter latencies as of late. Many enthusiasts were pleased when clock speeds hit the 800MHz mark last year, but Super Talent has eclipsed this mark with its 1GHz 2GB kit we'll be looking at today, the T1000UX2G5. This overclocked, high performance memory kit is geared toward gaming enthusiasts and sports 5-5-5-15 timings.    Super Talent T1000UX2G5 2GB PC2-8000 Specifications 1GHz Rated "Super Talent's new T1000UX2G5 is a matched pair of 1GB PC2-8000 DDR2 modules.
