PNY GeForce GTX 470 Review - PNY GeForce GTX 470 Review
Thu, June 10 2010 | 4:46PM | PermaLink Feedback?
When NVIDIA launched the first wave of GF100-based graphics cards in late march, the initial GeForce GTX 400 series line-up consisted of only two cards, the flagship GeForce GTX 480 (reviewed here) and its somewhat less powerful counterpart, the GeForce GTX 470. Since then, NVIDIA has augmented the GeForce GTX 400 series line-up with the more affordable GeForce GTX 465 as well, which we took a look at here. Unfortunately, at launch, we did not have access to a GeForce GTX 470 and couldn't provide our normal performance analysis. But good things come to those to who wait though. And since the initial launch we have gotten our hands on a full retail-ready GeForce GTX 470 by way of long time player in the PC space PNY. NVIDIA has also released a brand new set of drivers, i.e. Release 256, that unlocks additional performance from their latest GPU. On the pages ahead, we'll evaluate the PNY GeForce GTX 470 using NVIDIA's latest drivers to see just how much performance the GTX 470 has to offer gamers today...

Computex 2009: Intel sales chief outlines industry growth opportunities - Computex 2009: Intel sales chief outlines industry growth opportunities
Tue, June 02 2009 | 7:50PM | PermaLink Feedback?
Intel executive Sean Maloney today (June 2) said his company's relentless commitment to innovation will help drive tremendous future growth throughout the computing and communications industries, particularly in mobile and wireless.

"Intel will also deliver the "Lynnfield" and "Clarksfield" processors in the second half of the year and ship "Westmere" chips based on Intel's 32nm manufacturing with the company's second-generation Hafnium-based high-k metal gate transistor formula soon after. Combined, Maloney said the technology industry will have an almost infinite number of opportunities to create and ship new products into markets worldwide.

While demonstrating "Pine Trail" running on a netbook, Maloney said it would have improved performance, lower thermals and a reduction in average power for longer battery life. It will also feature an increased graphics core frequency for improved visuals. "Pine Trail" will be a 2-chip platform versus today's 3-chip platform, with graphics and memory controller moving onto the processor, resulting in a smaller overall footprint that enables smaller, thinner designs and lower platform cost.

In addition, Maloney showed a beta version 2.0 of the Moblin operating system project for netbooks. The Moblin project features a rich, new user interface, better system responsiveness and fast boot times.

Regarding the future of desktop PCs, Maloney said, "Our next-generation chipsets are taking our 32nm processor performance to mainstream PCs with products such as Clarkdale and Arrandale dramatically improving the PC experience."

Maloney said despite the slowdown in the world economy, HD video is growing at an incredible rate. In fact, HDMI is the most popular interface technology for HD and is expected to grow at an annual rate of 23% through 2012. Intel's next-generation processor, "Lynnfield," will deliver stunning HD to mainstream desktop PCs and become available in the latter half of this year. Maloney said that compared to last year's "Penryn"-based mainstream solutions, computer users can expect more than 40% better performance."
