Expect Project SHIELD in Q2 2013 confirms NVIDIA

NVIDIA is aiming for a Q2 2013 launch for the Project SHIELD, the chip company has revealed, though the hardware, software, and name of the portable games console are likely to change before that happens. The compact powerhouse - which features the new Tegra 4 chipset, complete with a whopping 72 GPU cores - currently lacks the LTE radio that the new chip features, and is WiFi-only in its prototype form.

Apple iMac 27-inch (2012) Review

Apple iMac 27-inch (2012) Review

Apple doesn't change things for the sake of change, and that's why we've had to wait a few years for a redesign of the iMac. When a fresh model does arrive, though, it arrives in style: for 2012, the iMac is slimmer than ever, with a crisp new casing that borrows aerospace construction methods and iPhone display technology to wrap together a beautiful, slim computer that's pleasing to the eye whether or not it's powered up. Still, as Apple's mainstream desktop, the new iMac has to perform, too, and with space at a premium there are some interesting choices to be made as to what goes inside. Read on for the full SlashGear review.

Birth of a star: Astronomers spot new solar system 450 light years away

Birth of a star: Astronomers spot new solar system 450 light years away

A vast protostar, spewing a torrent of matter formed from huge dust clouds, could give astronomers the best insight to-date into how our solar system was created. The star-in-waiting, just 300,000 years old and found 450 light years away in the Taurus constellation, is early in its lifecycle: L1527 (aka Roberta J. L1527) has consumed roughly a fifth of the surrounding envelope - the cloud of predominantly hydrogen and heavier molecular dust around it - on its way to reaching the critical temperature at which nuclear fusion begins.

NVIDIA Tesla K20 family reintroduced as world’s most powerful GPU

NVIDIA Tesla K20 family reintroduced as world’s most powerful GPU

This week the folks at NVIDIA are making it clear that the K20 family of Tesla GPU architecture is ready for action, and riding in on the wave of power comes the Titan - K20 accelerated and named world's fastest supercomputer just this morning. The Titan supercomputer works with a beastly 18,688 NVIDIA Tesla K20X GPU accelerator units and makes it clear that this family is more than ready to knock the cap off the processing roof in more ways than one. In addition to being the fastest GPU in the world the K20X model working with the Titan has been revealed as the new #1 entry on the Green500 list for energy efficiency.

TITAN sees unprecedented demand for supercomputing science projects

TITAN sees unprecedented demand for supercomputing science projects

Today the folks at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, NVIDIA, and Cray have brought on the next generation of accelerated computing with not just a re-naming of the Jaguar supercomputer, but integration with NVIDIA's solutions for GPU-powered greatness. This update turns the Titan (as it is now called) into the flagship accelerated computing system - the flagship for the whole world, that is. This is now a 200-cabinet Cray XK7 supercomputer working with 18,688 notes - AMD 16-core Opteron plus NVIDIA Tesla K20 GPUs - enough to change the way we work.

Titan supercomputer goes live with potent CPU/GPU tag team

Titan supercomputer goes live with potent CPU/GPU tag team

The Titan supercomputer at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory has been upgraded, tackling complex climate change calculations with 20 petaflops worth of new processors. Under the (considerable) hood its NVIDIA's "Kepler" GPUs and AMD Opetron 6274 processors doing the heavy lifting, though NVIDIA can't resist pointing out that its graphics chips are in fact carrying 90-percent of the overall load. The GPUs, more commonly found powering gaming rigs, help make Titan "the world's fastest supercomputer for open scientific research."

MAINGEAR Potenza Review

MAINGEAR Potenza Review

It's time to take a peek at the MAINGEAR Potenza, a desktop gaming machine that's small enough to fit under your desk if you wish, or sit right up out in the open with its powerful innards hidden by a perfectly stripped-down black and red outer metal body made of anodized aluminum with a steel frame inside. The unit we've got here utilizes the fabulous GeForce GTX 660 Ti for graphics, cutting the cost of the final build while it keeps with the Kepler power NVIDIA is known for. The Potenza is a customized (and customizable) machine that places heavy emphasis on hand-constructed and quality-assured building from MAINGEAR's own highly-skilled staff of PC geniuses - and it shows.
