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 launching a new set of SPARC processors it hopes will staunch its market share losses, even as revenue continues to slip. The new T5 chips are built on a 2nm process and refine the T4 core that Oracle debuted two years ago. Like the T4, the T5 emphasized improving single-thread performance and clock speeds, though the new core does double the number of cores per processor to 16, up from eight. The SPARC T series from Sun/Oracle has always interested me, because it's an explicitly multi-threaded design that emphasized parallelism. After Intel announced the end of single-threaded scaling...

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...
Hardware Secrets thinks the pre-overclocked XFX GeForce 6600 256MB DDR2 is a solid value for those looking for a mid-range graphics card. We thought so too, and even gave the card an Editor's Choice award a few months back."Nowadays the GeForce 6600 chip is located on the top of all entry-level nVidia GPUs (or at the bottom of all mid-range graphics chips, depending on how you look the market). We reviewed an overclocked model from XFX, called PV-T43P-UDS7, which comes with 256 MB GDDR2. Let's see how it performs against "normal" GeForce 6600 models and also against other video cards available... Read more...

BlueTake BT400 G5 Bluetooth Headset Review @ The Tech Zone: "Nothing says geek like a Bluetooth headset. With the BT400 G5, you'll be able to laugh at people with corded headset because they're not as cool as you. With a simple flip and a twist, the BT400 G5 works for both left or right ear. How geeky is that?" DFI LanParty UT SLI-DR Review @ Ninjalane: "When SLI was first announced the enthusiasm here in the Ninjalane Labs for the new technology was crazy. Everyone was running around trying to get their hands on something SLI enabled in hopes of making that big score and upgrade to SLI."... Read more...
Known as arguably one of the best selling Notebooks in the Corporate sector, IBM's T series of Thinkpad Notebooks has historically earned high marks for its build quality, feature set and general well-rounded performance. Today HotHardware's Andrew Ku takes a look at the new IBM/Lenovo Thinkpad T43 Notebook. Can IBM pass the Thinkpad's illustrious torch onto Lenovo and make the transition with this new machine? With a 1.73GHz Dothan core Pentium M, an i915PM chipset, DDR2 DRAM and ATi X300 graphics under it's hood, the T43 is looking like a pretty solid offering.   Step on in and find out... Read more...
  A few short years back, the T series notebook from IBM was exactly what most of us thought of whenever someone uttered the word "notebook". Through the years, it has been the friend of many students, business men, and serious travelers, with broad market brand-name recognition. Lately, it has undergone its latest refresh, now equipped under Intel's Sonoma platform. This is precisely the weapon of choice for many looking for a powerful thin and light notebook. And so we decided to put one of these new ThinkPads T series machines through its paces.  Here's a look at the new... Read more...
Hey folks, there's not much news in the box tonight, but here's what we got. Goodnight! Bluetake BT400 G5 Headset Review @ CoolTechZone "Ever since Bluetooth starting gaining popularity, it was only a matter of time before innovative and useful products started appearing on shelves that took advantage of the standard's wireless options. Though not innovating in most cases, but perhaps the most useful lineup of products that take advantage of Bluetooth are wireless headsets for mobile phones with built in support. Over the course of past year or so, we have seen numerous companies emerge in... Read more...
  The "LAN Party" KT400A from DFI A Different Approach from DFI By: Jeff Bouton June 11th, 2003 There is a healthy rivalry brewing between AMD chipset manufacturers VIA and NVIDIA.  These companies have been competing for the top spot in the AMD chipset market for some time now.  When VIA introduced the KT400, NVIDIA stepped up with their nForce2 and have since won the hearts, and dollars, of many users.  Unfortunately for VIA, the KT400 simply could not compete with the performance of the nForce2.  So, motherboard makers seemed quite content adopting NVIDIA's...

  Gigabyte's 7VAXP-A Ultra KT400A Motherboard Competition For The nForce 2 By, Tom Laverriere May 27, 2003 If anyone has ever been part of a team, not just in sports but in any part of life, there is one valuable lesson to learn and that is competition within the team makes the team better.  There are many reasons for this.  Competitiveness pushes individuals on the team to perform at higher levels to ensure their spot on the team.  The ones that don't play a starting role, nevertheless, keep working hard trying to become that next strong player on the team.  In any event,...

  Tyan S2495 Trinity KT400 More KT400 Madness By, Tom Laverriere February 17, 2003 Now that NVIDIA's nForce2 chipset has become mainstream, it seems as though many other AMD based motherboard chipsets just pale a little.  We know at least one chipset maker that would disagree with this of course, VIA.  VIA's KT400 offering has a lot of the same bells and whistles that the nForce2 provides.  With the KT400 you get AGP 8X, DDR400 ( though not guaranteed ), support for AthlonXP 333MHz front side bus processors, USB 2.0, and ATA 133 to name a few.  So, if Dual Channel DDR is...

  The MSI KT4 Ultra-FISR Motherboard Review VIA's KT400 Chipset Matched With MSI's Best By, Jeff Bouton October 27, 2002 Most of us remember the transition from VIA's KT266A to the KT333 chipset.  We had been patiently waiting for a worthy successor to the popular KT266A, anxious to see the next level in chipset performance.  In the end, what we ended up with were some nice feature enhancements, but some insignificant performance gains.  Upon closer inspection of the two chipsets, we soon found that overall they weren't all that different.  Aside from adding support for...

Soyo SY-KT400 Dragon Ultra vs. Shuttle AK37GTR Showdown at the KT400 Corral! By, Robert Maloney November 6th, 2002 As another season comes upon us and another new chipset from VIA technologies is released into the market.  It seems like only yesterday (OK, January) that we were building our latest powerhouses based on the KT266A chipset.  Then along came the KT333, but it brought only a minor performance improvement.  Originally touted as having DDR400 as well as AGP 8x support, the KT400 was much anticipated as the next best thing since sliced bread, for the Athlon.  Early...
