NVIDIA Kepler Graphics Processor Landing Second Half of 2011

NVIDIA Kepler Graphics Processor Landing Second Half of 2011

NVIDIA held their own event on Tuesday, and while there weren't any announcements about a Tegra 2 tablet, there was a few things to take away from the conference. Namely, what NVIDIA has planned for the years to come. While everyone may be focusing on the usage of Tegra 2 right now in all sorts of things, even smartphones, NVIDIA is already hard at work on their next graphics processor, known as Kepler, which is set to land in the second half of 2011.

Gliese 832c possibly habitable but has extreme seasons

Don't get your hopes up yet for galactic colonization, but a new planet has just been added to the Habitable Exoplanets Catalog. Gliese 832 c of the Gliese 832 star system is theorized to have temperatures close to Earth's, making it possibly habitable except for one glaring flaw: it has large seasonal shifts.

Alien life discovery in our lifetime insists SETI astronomer

The hunt for alien life will turn up results within our lifetime, a senior astronomer at the SETI Institute has promised the US Congress, though it might not be tentacled monsters or grey-skinned creatures with big eyes. The surprise commitment came at a House Committee on Science, Space and Technology hearing this past week, with SETI's Seth Shostak going on to explain the justification behind his bold prediction.

NASA has found the first potentially habitable Earth-cousin

NASA has found the first potentially habitable Earth-cousin

NASA's Kepler Space Telescope has made a planet-spotting breakthrough, catching sight of the first Earth-size planet orbiting a star in the so-called "habitable zone" where liquid water could be supported. Dubbed Kepler-186f, and around 500 light years away from our own Earth, the new planet is found in the constellation Cygnus; however, while it may be in the habitable zone in theory, it would be dimmer and probably cooler on the surface than Earth is.

Audi self-driving car brings NVIDIA Tegra K1 front and center

NVIDIA has brought the power of CUDA to mobile, further detailing how the NVIDIA Tegra K1 SoC will be brought to Audi to prove its name as the future of mobile processing - inside and outside of cars. In the NVIDIA Tegra K1 you've got processing power enough to roll with self-driving cars like the one Audi has driven out this week in addition to the versatility needed to land in tablets and other odd smart devices down the line. Just like the NVIDIA Tegra 4, K1 is ready for action far above the system-on-chip architecture of the past.
