Fudo over at The Inquirer reports that ATI's next-generation R600 GPU is rumored to have an external 512-bit bus. Should the rumor prove true it might go a long way in explaining why the industry won't see ATI's flagship DX10 GPU until Q1 2007. Here, the use of an external 512-bit memory bus requires a significantly more complicated PCB design as more physical pins are required and appropriate traces need to be made. There is little doubt that once ATI is able to deliver R600, it will be more than enough to give NVIDIA a run for their money. However, with NVIDIA's next generation G80 rumored to be launching within the next few weeks one has to wonder if...

Sonic Solutions (duplicating software) and Macrovision (encryption) announced Monday their partnership to offer retailers and movie studios the technology to download films and sell DVDs on demand, freeing up warehouses and shelf space. The software could also be beneficial to movie studios. Only 25% of titles in studio vaults are made available on DVD because three-quarters of the films wouldn't attract enough buyers, Sherf said. "The vast library of content has not been released because of the cost involved," he said. "Studios have to produce DVDs by the millions, and it's impossible to do that for every film."...

We all know Al Gore invented the internet. Did you know Bush invented Google? Search Marketing Info has a fascinating history of search engines, chockablock full of useful information about both their history and the nuts and bolts of how they work.

No silly, not George Bush; Vannevar Bush: Specialization becomes increasingly necessary for progress, and the effort to bridge between disciplines is correspondingly superficial. The difficulty seems to be, not so much that we publish unduly in view of the extent and... Read more...

Digging around for a good movie on a rainy weekend, like we've been having up here in the Northeast recently, can be a challenge for sure.  Team Ars thinks brick and mortar movie rentals are going the way of the dino and we'd have to agree.  Netflicks sent me an application in the mail recently... Think I'll check that out fo-sho because Comcast's OnDemand selection is pretty dang weak... Video stores are outdated and video-on-demand has a lot of growing up to do. I brought a list of 70 movies to two local stores and started checking titles off. It was a somewhat eclectic mix of Orbiting HQ favorites, quality anime, Oscar winners of various kinds, and a few international... Read more...
These patent infringement cases seem to be everywhere these days. This is a huge one though, as Hynix has been ordered to pay Rambus $306 Million. While that's a lot of cash, Rambus could be looking at even more money from others as a result from the court ruling. "The verdict, though, could prompt Rambus to file even more lawsuits. PC makers and others who incorporated DDR into their products are potentially liable.

Some have estimated that the royalties and damages from the patents could total to about... Read more...
