The DTX standard will take advantage of the existing ATX infrastructure and benefits, including cost efficiency, system options and backward-compatibility,... Read more...
The problem with machine vision is that the cameras are two-dimensional recorders of three-dimensional scenes. Objects in an image may be obscured by lighting, occluded by obstacles or camouflaged by similar colors in the background. Sophisticated software can sometimes piece together objects from subtle cues, such as when two camera positions are used to reveal parallax. But such algorithms take time to run, making them inappropriate for real-time applications, like automobile collision avoidance. Now one company claims to have solved the problem with a real-time 3-D camera that uses pixel-level hardware to reveal the distance to any object in any scene, regardless of lighting, occlusion or...

Motorola, Inc., has received the 2006 IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA) Corporate Award in recognition of its "outstanding contributions to IEEE standards, which allow people to be mobile and connected across the globe." Motorola has been a leader in the creation of many IEEE standards. Most significantly, it has contributed substantially to the broad family of IEEE 802 wireless standards by participating in over 50 IEEE 802 working groups and task groups. For instance, it has held numerous leadership positions in working groups for IEEE 802.11 (local area networks), IEEE 802.15 (personal area networks), IEEE 802.16 (metropolitan area networks) and IEEE 802.22 (regional area networks)...

Yahoo News is reporting that Microsoft will get even more aggressive in their efforts to curtail piracy with Vista. As if product activation and the WGA program weren't bad enough, MS now plans to restrict access to a system if the company "believes" it's running a pirated version of Vista... "The world's largest software maker said Wednesday that people running a version of Windows Vista that it believes is pirated will initially be denied access to some of the most anticipated Vista features. That includes Windows Aero, an improved graphics technology. If a legitimate copy is not bought within 30 days, the system will curtail functionality much further by restricting users... Read more...
IBM, Intel Propose Innovative Extension To Popular PCI Express Computing Standard INTEL DEVELOPER FORUM, San Francisco, Sept. 27, 2006 - IBM and Intel Corporation, with support from dozens of other companies, have developed a proposal to enhance PCI Express* technology to address the performance requirements of new usage models, such as visualization and extensible markup language (XML). The proposal, codenamed "Geneseo," outlines enhancements that will enable faster connectivity between the processor -- the computer's brain -- and application accelerators, and improve the range of design options for hardware developers. Applications that will benefit include visualization, such as complex weather... Read more...
It's that time again. The ongoing "AMD vs. Intel" battle is gearing up, and as usual, there's no telling which way it will go. For some time now, AMD has been the processor of choice among enthusiasts, and that's unlikely to be challenged until Intel's 'Conroe' processor is up and about. "Age has mellowed my thirst for speed, and my upgrade schedule has slowed to a yearly pace, but that doesn't mean I'm settling for any less. To fit into this leisurely schedule I've had to focus a bit more on evolving technologies, and do my best to avoid the lemons and technological evolutionary branches which aren't going...

Hardware Secrets has just published a new tutorial where they go into detail on memory timings. If you don't know your CAS from your Command Rate, this article will be of interest. "DDR and DDR2 memories are classified according to the maximum speed at which they can work. But, besides the speed, there is another information that tells you the memory performance: timings. Timings are numbers like 2-3-2-6-T1, 3-4-4-8 or 2-2-2-5, the lower the better. In this tutorial we will explain you exactly what exactly each one of these numbers mean."  ... Read more...

So, is it a real disappointment that we haven't seen more 10,000 RPM SATA drives? Possibly, but increasing the drives rotational speed isn't the only way to increase drive performance. In their recent article, HDDsaver explains the lack of more 10k RPM SATA drives, and covers some new technology aimed at increasing hard drive performance. "Over two years ago Western Digital announced the arrival of the first ever 10,000 RPM serial ATA hard drive, the Raptor. Despite having a capacity of just 37GB, the WD360GD was immediate a hit with performance enthusiasts and high-end system builders. It is surprising that other companies have not followed...

Hey folks, I'm just here to drop off the news. Goodnight all! Intel Files Response To AMD Complaint   SANTA CLARA, Calif., Sept. 1, 2005 - Intel Corporation today filed its response to a lawsuit recently initiated by Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) regarding Intel's business practices. In the response, Intel refutes AMD's claims and states that its business practices are both fair and lawful. The Intel response explains that AMD's claims are factually incorrect and contradictory. In addition, AMD's complaint -- by attempting to impede Intel's ability to lower its prices -- would hurt consumers, not help them. "Innovation, investment, customer focus and great products have led to Intel's... Read more...
Intel Pentium Extreme Edition 840 Processor Review @ PCPerspective: "The processor package itself looks like any other LGA775 Pentium processor released by the chip giant, and that is a good thing -- common sockets and connectors usually indicate a much easier transition to a new technology. However, this doesn't mean that current users of LGA775 motherboards based on older chipsets are just going to be able to replace their current Pentium 4 with the new Pentium XE; a new chipset is going to be required in the form of the 955X, which we'll cover on the next page." Samsung CLP-510n @ Overclocker Online: "Overall this series of Samsung CLP-500's seem to be an awesome series of color... Read more...
