Building a small form factor gaming PC is a tricky business. For one thing, there simply isn’t enough room to fit as many components as you would put in a mid- or full-size gaming PC. Multiple graphics cards aren’t likely, and oversized power supplies (not to mention CPU heatsinks) usually present major challenges. The other issue is the heat: with space at a premium, good airflow becomes even more important, but all the harder to preserve. And don’t expect your customers to give you leeway on performance, looks, or (and this might be the toughest target of all) noise. But it’s not a lost cause, especially with the Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan delivering so much power (and... Read more...
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 GTX Titan last month, Nvidia told us that one reason it settled on that name was because of the association with the Titan project. That deployment, it turns out, isn't working like it should. Stability problems have kept the supercomputer from passing final stability tests. The system needed to hit a 95% successful completion rate in a 14-day series of stress tests, but only managed... Read more...
A couple of days ago, we showed you the new NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan in all its glory—almost. While we were able to reveal the card itself, discuss its new features and specifications, and talk about some of the new systems it will be powering, we weren’t able to post any performance data. Fortunately, that all changes today. We’ve been able to test NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX Titan in a number of different configurations, including SLI and in a multi-monitor setup, and have the goods for you here today. And yes, we’ve got some Crysis 3 action on tap as well... NVIDIA's GeForce GTX Titan Benchmarked: Yes, It CAN Play Crysis 3... Read more...
A couple of days ago, we showed you the new NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan in all its glory—almost. While we were able to reveal the card itself, discuss its new features and specifications, and talk about some of the new systems it will be powering, we weren’t able to post any performance data. Fortunately, that all changes today.

The latest custom PC maker to jump in the NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan pool is CyberPowerPC, and the company is doing a veritable cannonball by offering the new graphics card as an option on its Fang III, Zeus, Gamer Xtreme, and Ultra series rigs. Users can opt for up to 3-way SLI configurations and can choose from systems based on AMD FX or Intel X79 or Z77 chipsets, with both the CPU and GPUs cooled by a hydro 2 liquid cooling kit. The systems also feature GPU Boost 2.0 for intelligent clock speed monitoring, as well as PCI-E 3.0, dual-link DVI (supporting resolutions up to 2560x1600), GPU-accelerated Blu-ray 3D, and 7.1 digital surround sound. All the Titan-based CyberPowerPC gaming systems ship... Read more...
NVIDIA is launching a new, ultra high-end graphics card today, the long rumored GeForce GTX Titan. Although the card itself and a couple of its features are new to the consumer graphics card market, many details of the GPU powering the GTX Titan, namely the NVIDIA GK110, have been previously covered here. In fact, NVIDIA revealed the GK110 at GTC 2012 in May of last year and released its first Tesla-branded products based on the GPU a few months later. The GK110 is also a key component of the GeForce GTX Titan’s namesake, the Titan Supercomputer, which uses almost 19,000 of the GPUs in tandem to crunch numbers at a brisk 20 petaflops. Products designed for the HPC space are somewhat different... Read more...
Several boutique builders including MAINGEAR and Origin PC are announcing systems with NVIDIA’s new GTX Titan GPU (the latter of which includes liquid cooling for the cards) on board, and so we’re not surprised to see that Digital Storm is doing the same. However, it’s a bit shocking to see that Digital Storm has chosen its new small form factor PC, the Bolt, for NVIDIA’s latest and greatest graphics card. We’re seeing more and more horsepower from SFF gaming rigs, to be sure, but usually the biggest and baddest components wind up in builders’ biggest and baddest systems. Digital Storm apparently doesn’t feel that way and is confident that the Bolt’s... 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 Magny-Cours products. The net effect of the upgrade has boosted Titan's raw computing power tenfold, while occupying the same floor space as the previous Jaguar system. The supercomputer now contains     18,688 nodes (299,008 CPU cores), with each node built around the AMD Opteron 6274 and Tesla K20. "One challenge in supercomputers today... Read more...
T-Mobile's Chief Marketing Officer Cole Brodman has an interesting idea for revamping the mobile industry -- and it involves killing the subsidy plans that have driven smartphone adoption over the past five years. Brodman was participating in a round-table at the Geekwire tech summit; other speakers included Jon Irwin, the president of Rhapsody), Mike McSherry, CEO of Swype, and David Bluhm, CEO of Z2Live. Asked what one thing he'd change if he had the power to do so, Brodman pointed to subsidy programs. “It [device subsidies] actually distorts what devices actually cost and it causes OEMs, carriers — everybody to compete on different playing fields," the CMO said. "I think it is... Read more...
MAINGEAR has given its TITAN 17 Notebook a little facelift as well as some new parts under the hood. It now sports an Intel Core i7 3930K or 3960X Extreme Edition, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580M (with SLI support) or Quadro 5010M, and a full-size backlit keyboard and numpad.

It also has a slew of I/O ports including HMDI, DVI-D, and DisplayPort; two USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports, and a FireWire port; and S/PDIF, RJ-45 LAN, and eSATA. The TITAN 17 starts at $3,499 and is available now for pre-order with free shipping. The machine comes with Jagged Alliance: Back in Action... Read more...
How do you turn a Jaguar into a Titan? It's simple really -- just change its diet to include plenty of Tesla chips. That's what the Oak Ridge National Laboratory plans to do as it upgrades its Jaguar supercomputer with no less than 960 Tesla M2090 GPUs based on Nvidia's Fermi architecture, followed by a second upgrade that will include 18,000 Tesla GPUs based on Nvidia's Kepler architecture. After the upgrade effort is complete, the new Titan supercomputer will have the potential to deliver over 20 petaflops of peak performance. A Titan indeed. "All areas of science can benefit from this substantial increase in computing power, opening the doors for new discoveries that so far have been out of... Read more...

We often take the internet for granted, not necesarilly aware of the struggles that go on behind the scenes, such as that between U.S. based Cogent and Swedish TaliaSonera.  Presently these two large bandwidth providers are fighting over peering issues:“According to Cogent CEO David Schaeffer, TeliaSonera peered data selectively and refused to upgrade bandwidth at some of the companies’ peering connections, causing traffic to take long, winding routes around the internet and saturating peered connections’ pipes.“Schaeffer went on to imply that the loss of routing to their customers (and eventually consumers down the road) was not a result of their spat with TeliaSonera, but likely had more to...
