For the past 3.5 years or so, NVIDIA has ardently advocated the GPU as a computational platform capable of solving almost any problem. One topic the company hasn't targeted, however, is the tremendous performance advantage the GPU could offer malware authors. The idea that a graphics card could double as a security hole isn't something we've heard before, but according to a paper by Giorgos Vasiliadis, Michalis Polychronakis and Sotiris Ionnidis, it's an attack vector whose popularity could boom in coming years. The trio argues that all the computational hardware that makes the GPU such an ideal fit for certain types of scientific or graphical workloads could (and will) deliver equal benefits... Read more...
When you think of major gaming PCs, you generally think of Alienware or Falcon Northwest. But Acer has been making a new for themselves with their Predator line of gaming PCs. These are huge, towering machines that have rather wild designs that are impossible to mistake. They also have impressive internals to go with 'em, and the company's new Aspire Predator AG5900-U3092 might be the slickest yet. It's equipped with a Core i7 CPU, up to 1.5TB of hard drive space, 8GB of DDR3 SDRAM, ATI Radeon HD 5850 graphics with 1GB of discrete video memory, ATI Eyefinity Technology and full support for Microsoft DirectX 11. It also has a combo/DVD super-multi optical drive, 12 total USB 2.0 ports, an HDMI... Read more...
It's not too early to realize that the holidays are upon us, and Dell is preparing for them by introducing two new PCs under $800 today that look to be great candidates for replacing your aging bedroom or apartment rig. The Inspiron One is a new 23" touch panel-based all-in-one PC, while the revised Zino HD makes a good nettop even better. Starting with the One, this one is equipped with a 23" LED-backlit LCD touch screen, an optional quad-core CPU (Athlon II X4) and options for a Mobility Radeon HD 5450 GPU, a Blu-ray drive, and up to 1TB of storage space. The standard model ships with Wi-Fi, a webcam, DVD drive and HDMI port, but the main highlight seems to be the Dell Stage user interface.... Read more...
It didn't take AMD long to respond to the release of NVIDIA's new line of Quadro workstation-class graphics cards. The new flagship FirePro V9800 we'll be showing you here is the latest ultra high end professional graphics card from AMD, that competes in the same space as the 6000 and 5000 models from NVIDIA. It replaces the V8800 as the flagship model of the FirePro line, and targets professionals who require the highest levels of performance and connectivity, with plenty of onboard memory and support for multiple displays...

MSI calls it the world's first 3D multi-touch all-in-one PC destined for North America, and if you dream has been to actually reach out and touch the 3D images in front of you, this system is tailor made for you. The company's Wind Top AE2420 3D combines two emerging all-in-one technologies into one machine: 3D and multi-touch. The machine itself is pretty powerful. There's a Core i7 inside, a 24" HD screen (1080p), and the system ships with wireless 3D shutter glasses for one. For gaming, there's ATI's Mobility Radeon HD5730 GPU, and there's even a few USB 3.0 ports for use with the hard drives that you're going to buy next year. It also includes a 2.1 sound system, THX audio, an optional Blu-ray... Read more...

As summer winds down, the professional graphics market, it appears, is just starting to heat up. About a month ago, we tested the Fermi based Quadro 6000 and 5000 graphics cards from NVIDIA. Although they were a few months late to the party, our results revealed the Quadro models held a measurable performance advantage over ATI's then flagship product, the FirePro V8800. But as expected, the red team has stepped their game up by offering a new workstation card that looks to close the gap while offering multi-monitor support that NVIDIA can't match currently. The FirePro V9800 offers similar features found in the V8800 we reviewed in April : Cypress GPU, 1600 stream processors, 147.2 GB/s memory... Read more...

On September 1, GlobalFoundries played host to the first annual Global Technology Conference (GTC for short). While there were a fair number of partner presentations on display, the conference was primarily driven by GlobalFoundries executives and announcements. When we spoke to GlobalFoundries in March we remarked on the company's aggressive roadmap; we were curious to see if the company would still be on track six months later. Based on comments made by company CEO Doug Grose, GlobalFoundries is on track to realize some $4 billion in revenue for the year 2010 and plans to double its size within two years (it's unclear if this refers to revenue, wafer starts, or customer base). The company's... Read more...

A few weeks back, AMD quietly released a couple of new graphics cards in the Radeon HD 5500 series. For a while there, starting with the Radeon HD 5870 in late September of last year, it seemed like AMD was releasing a new series of graphics cards aimed at different price points, practically every few weeks. Things slowed down a bit once the company had a complete top-to-bottom line-up of DX11 and Eyefinity capable cards from prices ranging from about $49 to $600, but obviously AMD wasn’t quite done beefing up the Radeon HD 5000 series. The recently released Radeon HD 5500 series cards differed from their predecessors in only one meaningful way—they were equipped with GDDR5 memory.... Read more...
