the first true 3D accelerators
     Tue, Oct 29 2013 | 9:03A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We really do not realize how good we had it. Sure, we could apply that to budget surpluses and the time before the rise of global terrorism, but in this case I am talking about the predictable advancement of graphics due to both design expertise and improvements in process technology. Moore’s law has been exceptionally kind to graphics. We can look back and when we plot the course of these graphics companies, they have actually outstripped Moore in terms of transistor density from generation to generation. Most of this is due to better tools and the expertise gained in what is still a fairly new endeavor as compared to CPUs (the first true 3D accelerators were released in the 1993/94 timeframe).

Samsung Galaxy S4 Smartphone Review @ ModSynergy.com
     Mon, Oct 28 2013 | 1:11P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I`ve had the opportunity to review the Galaxy Note line of Smartphone`s from Samsung, and both the original Note and Note 2 have left a lasting impression on me. A couple of weeks ago Samsung contacted me and asked if I would be interested in reviewing their latest Galaxy S4. This would be my first real life introduction into the S series, but I`ve heard countless things about their past S, S2, and S3 Smartphone`s over the years. I could not pass on the opportunity to give it a try. Today I get to share with you about my experiences with the latest Samsung Galaxy S4 SGH-I337M. I will be reviewing the 16GB Black Mist model with the Android 4.2.2 operating system."

Hard Lesson Learned With Late-2013 Apple Products Containing Lesser Performing 128GB SSDs
     Mon, Oct 28 2013 | 12:58P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The practice of using unbranded peripherals in computers is a common one, and even more so in the case of Apple, who takes it a step further by demanding that components such as the SSDs are proprietary through small the reassignment of circuitry within the SSD. Not only can the SSD in Apples new Mac products not be upgraded with third-party SSDs, but also, they cant even be switched off with SSDs of previous Apple releases. Simply, the high-capacity SSD of your 2012 Apple MBA will not work in your 2013 MBA."
