Nvidia posted its earnings for the second quarter of 2013 (Q2 of fiscal year 2014 by the company's reckoning) and the results are relatively great. The company posted earnings per share (EPS) of $0.16, beating analyst expectations by three cents, with total revenue of $977 million. While that's still a decrease of 6.6% compared to last year, it's a mitigated decrease in line with Intel's sales decline, as opposed to AMD, which saw revenue fall by 18% year on year. Strong gross margin of 55.8% (up 4% year-on-year), new GPU launches, and sustained Quadro demand all helped anchor revenue. Tesla revenue... Read more...
Oracle is publicly demonstrating its new T4 processor today and is shipping beta test systems to selected partners. The new T4 chip is a major departure from previous designs. Sun's T1 processor, codenamed Niagara and introduced in 2005, rejected a conventional focus on single-thread performance in favor of an aggressively multi-threaded, multi-core approach. CPU clock speeds were purposefully kept low to minimize power consumption. The Niagara T1, introduced in 2005 The T1, which was introduced in 2005, ran at a maximum of 1.4GHz and offered a maximum of eight cores, with each core capable of... Read more...
In the past nine months Oracle both acquired Sun Microsystems and recently launched an updated version of that company's 'Niagra' processor. That's an impressive amount of work in such a short time, but Oracle CEO Larry Ellison isn't done shopping. Last Friday, at a company investment meeting, Ellison stated: "Our focus is to build our [intellectual property] portfolio,” Ellison said during the meeting with analysts, according to Reuters. “You could see us buying chip companies. Silicon is very important, software IP is very important." Speculation on which chip companies sent ARM,... 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...

Hello HotHardware Fans! Over the last couple of weeks, we have exclusively had the chance to preview a new small form factor PC called the GT3, from the GTR Tech Corporation. Unlike the boxy little designs that we have become accustomed to in the SFF arena, the GT3 is sleeker and more versatile; looking more like a slimmer, shorter version of an upright mid-tower. And best of all, it can accommodate standard ATX motherboards and full sized expansion cards. Click the link below to check it out... Read The Article Right Here!... Read more...
It's probably safe to assert that, by and large, DIY Small Form Factor PCs are still niche products.  Although they have been offered by the likes of Shuttle, AOpen, MSI and many others for nearly half a decade now, there's still an audible gasp that's heard from non PC-centric folks when then first encounter one.  Questions range from, "What is it?" to "What does it do?"  And even when it has been explained that the mini machine is simply a PC, albeit much smaller than usual, heads still shake, believing that a PC must be big and bulky in order to work properly.  It's a common belief, if only...

Bjorn3D takes on part 3 of the multi-site evaluation and analysis project dubbed the "Mult-GPU World Tour 2006".  Penstar Systems and bit-tech kicked it off last week and there are others to follow Bjorn's installment, including opposite sides of the table fan sites, NVNews and Rage3D.  So far, to be quite honest, these articles seem to be more focused on the NVIDIA offerings, with diagrams and charts explaining full feature-set details of nForce SLI chipsets but not as much detail on ATI CrossFire.  Though clearly NVIDIA has a bit more maturity...

  The Chaintech 7VJL Motherboard Review KT333 and Gold, Lots of Gold By -Chris Angelini August 2nd, 2002 Someone over at Chaintech must have the Midas Touch.  Or, maybe they have been watching too many Dr. Dre music videos.  Regardless, everything we've seen from Chaintech lately has been heavily accented by gold.  Companies like ASUS, ABIT, MSI, and Gigabyte may have more corporate clout here in the United States, but Chaintech claims to be the fastest growing motherboard manufacturer in the world and is obviously sparing no expense to prove it.  The "bling bling"...
