  • Google in Danger from Wikipedia? - Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales said last week that he is currently working on a community developed web search service that will rival Google and Yahoo.
  • Xbox 360 price cut dated? - A couple of flyers posted over at Joystiq suggest that a $50 price cut will be applied to the $399 Xbox 360 Premium console as early as August 12—just in time for Madden '08.According to GamesIndustry, Microsoft will not comment on the rumors that a $50 price cut is coming.
  • Nuclear Power Around the World  - The map shows the countries with some level of nuclear capacities and how far developed these capacities are, ranging from no plants to already constructing multiple new plants, this map covers it all.
  • The End of the World - Hah!
  • Man is chain-sawed in half and continues to move! (video) - Anyone have any idea how he does this? :-)

Quad vs Dual Cores for Gaming - tech
(hx) 03:41 AM EDT - Jul,21 2007 - Post a comment
It seems like a lot of people are wondering what they should buy once the Intel price drop hits and Intel's new processors come out. The chaps over at VE decided to ask Epic Games' Main Man and Lead Programmer Tim Sweeney for his take on the situation:
VE - Assuming you were making a new rig to run today and tomorrow's games, which CPU would you recommend at the $266 price point? A Quad-core Q6000 2.4GHz or Dual-Core E6850 3.0GHz?

Tim - If you're buying a CPU primarily for gaming, the sweet spot of the market seems to be dual-core. There, you can get a higher clock rate than is available (at least economically) in quad-core. All UE3 games, for example, scale really well to two cores, and you get significantly more performance than single-core much of the time. Though UE3 and many other engines scale somewhat to 4 cores, the benefits aren't huge.

That will change in a couple of years, but that's another upgrade cycle.

If you plan to do heavy level-building and mod making, I'd recommend quad-core. The development tools scale well to quad-core, having lots of content authoring apps open in Windows benefits from quad-core, and if you're going to be running a dedicated server on your machine to test a mod while also playing on that machine, it helps for that.

  • Intel Prices Its First 45nm Processor - Intel's first 45nm processor will be a quad-core Core 2 Extreme and cost $999.
  • OCZ launches 1.8 GHz DDR3 - The new modules belong to Platinum Edition series, therefore they carry platinum-painted heatspreader and a number PC3-14400. Latter number means single of these babies is able to result in a 14.4 GB/s bandwidth. Combined, these could reach 28.8 GB/s if there was not for Intel's 64-bit GTL+ bus that is keeping people stuck at 8.5GB/s (1066 MHz one), that is 10.66 GB/s with the latest 1333 MHz one.
  • Abit IP35 Pro Socket 775 Motherboard Tested - This motherboard boasts many features, such as support for the latest 1333 FSB and quad core processors, HDMI ready sound, 100% Japanese solid state capacitors, Silent OTES cooling technology and 7.1 Realtek sound.
  • BFG Tech's GeForce 8600 GTS OC2 graphics card tested - BFG has pushed what's arguably the best mid-range GPU on the market to even greater heights with a little dose of factory "overclocking," making the OC2 one of the fastest 8600 GTS cards you can buy. All this sounds good until you get to the price tag. The GeForce 8600 GTS OC2 currently sells for $240 and up online.
  • Random slowdown bug plagues GeForce 8800 cards -  The slowdown bug is probably caused by texture eviction from device memory. Textures aren't being evicted when they should be, causing a loss of available device memory for other resources. Let's hope they fix it as soon as possible.
  • Carmack is 'not a believer' in physics processors - id Software star programmer John Carmack has told Boot Daily in no uncertain terms that he still has no interest in dedicated physics processing hardware: "I am not a believer in dedicated PPUs. Multiple CPU cores will be much more useful in general, but when GPUs finally get reasonably fine grained context switching and scheduling, some tasks will work well there"
  • Eight Video Card Coolers Tested and Compared - The models range from completely passive no-noise solutions to multi heat pipes equipped cooling monsters.
  • SanDisk Extreme Ducati Edition USB flash drive - SanDisk has unveiled the Extreme Ducati Edition USB Flash Drive, which doesn't do much to avoid looking like your average Liquid Paper Dryline Grip. Aside from the awkward resemblance, this glossy red device sports the same color effects as those found on the Ducati Corse team motorcycles, includes 4GB of internal storage, and touts write speeds of up to 20 megabytes-per-second.
  • Wal-Mart to Sell $300 PC with OpenOffice - The Everex Impact GC3502 usesWindows Vista OS, but substitutes the 2.2 version of word processing and spreadsheet tools for the traditional Microsoft Office variety. The computer runs on a 1.5GHz C7-D processor from Via Technologies Inc., a chip that meets lead-free environmental regulations and saves energy with low wattage demands.
  • ATi Catalyst 7.7 Drivers - AMD has ironed out issues in Call of Duty 2, Call of Juarez, Doom 3, Lost Planet, Monsters Inc., Neverwinter Nights, Pacific Fighters, Prey, Quake 3, and Quake 4.

World in Conflict - Open beta performance analysis - tech
(hx) 07:39 AM EDT - Jul,16 2007 - Post a comment
EliteBastards take a further look at the DirectX 10 performance in World in Conflict, the upcoming RTS game. They take a look at both the image quality and performance on offer utilising the DirectX 9 and 10 rendering paths in the open beta of this game. Here's a taster:
Overall, I can't help but feel a little disappointed to see yet another game where the inclusion of DirectX 10 functionality has done nothing for the title either graphically or from a performance standpoint - I really can't tell the DirectX 9 and 10 rendering paths apart, yet performance is lower to quite a considerable degree using the latter. Thus, it looks like we'll have to wait a little longer for that first title that really makes DirectX 10 a must-have commodity for a graphics board.

Examining performance under the DirectX 9 rendering path, things are pretty much as we expected - The ATI boards look good when rendering 'straight', but once anti-aliasing is thrown into the mix performance suffers heavily, and drops to equal footing or worse when compared to equivalent NVIDIA boards. Overall though, 1280x1024 with 4x anti-aliasing and 16x anisotropic filtering looks like a fair target resolution at our selected settings for both ATI's Radeon HD 2900 XT and NVIDIA's GeForce 8800 GTS 640MB. At the mid-range, 1024x768 is comfortable for the Radeon HD 2600 XT, but both mainstream NVIDIA boards would require a drop in in-game image quality to make the game truly enjoyable from a frame rate perspective.

As we've just mentioned, the move to DirectX 10 in this title means quite a performance drop for all parts, which again raises the question of both how well optimised current drivers are for the new API, as well as just how well this generation of hardware is equipped to handle DirectX 10 functionality. It's still too early to answer either of these questions unfortunately, so only time will tell. Beyond that, we once again have to raise a sigh for ATI's showing - First, there's the in-game text corruption issue, which basically makes DirectX 10 unusable, and beyond that, performance in general on Radeon HD 2000 parts is simply unacceptable at present. To be fair, NVIDIA have the advantage of releasing beta drivers specifically to ensure this open beta works correctly, but that still doesn't excuse the poor state of ATI's Catalyst drivers when it comes to DirectX 10 content - If they aren't careful, they face the possibility of being written off in the DirectX 10 performance battleground before they've even started. On the green side of the fence, NVIDIA's performance is much better, with the GeForce 8800 GTS 640MB capable of utilising the DirectX 10 rendering path happily at either 1024x768 with 4x anti-aliasing and 16x anisotropic filtering, or 1280x1024 without - Once again though, mid-range DirectX 10 parts just don't seem to be cut out to handle the new API at all.
