Nvidia announced today that Phil Carmack, the head of Tegra development since the project's inception, has left Team Green to take a position as CEO "of one of our [Nvidia's] partner companies." He'll be succeeded by Deepu Talla. Talla joined Nvidia earlier this year, after more than a decade at Texas Instruments, as... Read more...
The dawn of GPU computing came about in large part due to the immense gap in compute performance between traditional CPUs and programmable GPUs. Whereas CPUs excel with serial workloads, modern GPUs perform best with highly parallel operations. If you look at the slide below, it shows an array of Intel processors... Read more...
Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S4 may be Android's current hotness, but what about those who don't need something so high-end, nor want to go too low-end? For those, there's Samsung's Galaxy Ace 3, a phone all-but-confirmed thanks to a leak by - surprise, an online benchmark (GLBenchmark). According to the specs acquired... Read more...
The annual Game Developers Conference in San Francisco isn't typically a launching-pad for a graphics card, but it's clear that AMD is excited about what it has in store.

The Titan supercomputer buildout at Oak Ridge National Laboratory was a much-publicized upgrade of the older Jaguar supercomputer that already existed on-site. Nvidia and AMD heavily publicized the facility's decision to combine Opteron processors with Nvidia's new K20/K20X-based graphics cards. When it launched the... Read more...
AMD has yet to make an official statement on this topic, but several unofficial remarks and leaks point in the same direction.  Contrary to rumor, there won't be a new GCN 2.0 GPU out this spring to head up the Radeon HD 8000 family.

When Nvidia launched the consumer-oriented GK104 earlier this year, the company made it clear that the enthusiast-oriented GPU was the first iteration of a two-GPU strategy. K20, we were told, would launch later in the year, with certain features aimed at accelerating supercomputing and HPC workloads. Today, Nvidia is taking the wraps off... Read more...
Nvidia has finished work on a new supercomputer at Oak Ridge that showcases the company's K20 Tesla GPUs. The new cluster, dubbed Titan, is expected to break the 20 petaflop barrier. The system is a major upgrade to the Jaguar supercomputer that proceeded it (Jaguar was prominently upgraded last year to AMD's new Bulldozer CPUs after utilizing... Read more...
If a gaming laptop is painted yellow, will it automatically become more powerful? No, this isn't a comic book -- this is real life. But, a yellow laptop generally involves more powerful innards, if history has any say. Samsung's latest gaming machine is indeed powerful, and it's getting more so with the latest... Read more...
What if there was a power-efficient GPU with brains as powerful as a power-sucking desktop chip? We may be on the brink of finding out.
