While the format wars rage on, many different solutions are being proposed. The latest is a disk that Time Warner will announce next week at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Total HD movies will carry movies that can be played on high-definition DVD players that use technology backed by Sony Corp.'s Blu-ray format, as well as players using Toshiba Corp.-backed HD-DVD format. The competing formats have been blamed for hindering sales of high-definition movies and players, with consumers recalling the bruising war between Sony Corp.'s Betamax videotape and JVC's VHS version. JVC is owned by Matsushita Electric Industrial Co. Ltd.... Read more...
According to a report on DigiTimes, AMD is planning to launch some new Athlon 64 X2 processors on December 5 that are built using the company's 65nm process node. The report also states that AMD is making the move to 65nm sooner, rather than later, to satisfy the additional demand brought on by Dell now selling systems with AMD processors. "The report said AMD will introduce its new dual-core Athlon 64 X2 CPU (codenamed Brisbane) on December 5. The reason behind the launch, which is called earlier-than-expected, is said Dell's considerable consumption of AMD CPUs that caused the CPU shortage at the clone market."... Read more...

I know you slept through quantum physics class. Your snoring woke me up. Luckily, Someone at Magiq Technologies, among other people, was sitting up straight and taking notes. And they think they can make the next generation of data encryption essentially impregnable by using those pesky photons from page 234 in the textbook we didn't read either: Magic combines a computer, a finely tuned laser, a photon detector, and a fiber-optic line. The laser inside the Magiq QPN box is adjusted to produce single photons, which are then sent over the fiber-optic cable to a second QPN box, which detects them and notes precisely their time of arrival....

Crysis the highly anticipated shooter from Crytek, might not be able to run in all of its graphical glory on the XBox 360 and Playstation 3. Both next generation consoles lack the ability to render certain effects made possible by Microsoft's DirectX 10, which will be made available with Windows Vista. "Although Crysis will support both current and the next version of DirectX, Crytek claims that only DirectX 10 allows the game to run as it was intended by the developers because the next-generation DirectX API, which will ship along with Windows Vista, allows more effects and more objects to be drawn on the screen with a smaller computational...

Today's top-shelf computer games look pretty stunning, especially when you run them using a PC with a powerful graphics chip and a speedy processor. But you have to admit, even the best games still don't look completely realistic. From the way explosions appear, to the way water flows, to the way a character falls down, there's still something less than real about it. The folks at a company named Ageia say the missing element is real-world physics, and they want you to add a third processor -- a physics processing unit -- to your PC. The PPU would let game developers add more physics effects and complexity to their games. Of course, many of today's games already employ some physics... Read more...
DigiTimes reports that Intel's next generation IGP slated for launch prior to Windows Vista will be equipped with enough performance features and functionality to pose a legitimate threat to ATI, VIA, and SiS. This new IGP will support DX9, Shader Model 3.0, OpenGL 1.5, Advanced De-Interlacing, MPEG-2 hardware acceleration, and HDMI output. Judging by the Intel IGP performance we witnessed during our review of the Alienware Area-51 m5500, this new IGP is just what the doctor ordered for Intel.For the Viiv consumer PC platform, Intel's G965 series will target the entry-level and mid-range segments, while its 975 line is focused on the high-end, extreme gaming market, according to the sources....

Regardless, it's great to see AMD is up to the challenge and is not handing over the CPU performance crown without a fight.... Read more...
Consumers about to face a confusing and expensive choice between two conflicting standards for high-definition DVDs will face further costs to upgrade their entertainment systems if they want to enjoy all the benefits of the new movie players. Hollywood and electronics makers have aligned themselves behind two warring formats called Blu-ray, led by Sony Corp., and HD DVD, championed by Toshiba Corp., which on Thursday said it may delay its launch from late March to mid-April. "I don't think all the challenges and costs of next-generation DVDs have been realized by consumers yet," analyst Paul-Jon McNealy of American Technology Research said.... Read more...
