Modern Graphics Processor, Part 3: The Nvidia vs. ATI era begins
     Mon, Apr 22 2013 | 4:03P | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the turn of the century the graphics industry bore witness to further consolidation. Where 3dfx was once a byword for raw performance, its strengths before its dismissal laid in its full screen antialiasing image quality. By the time 2001 dawned, the PC graphics market consisted of a discrete card duopoly (Nvidia and ATI), with both of them in addition to Intel supplying the vast majority of integrated graphics chipsets.

Prior to the Voodoo 5’s arrival, ATI had announced the Radeon DDR as “the most powerful graphics processor ever designed for desktop PCs.” Previews of the card had already gone public on April 25, and only twenty-four hours later Nvidia countered with the announcement of the GeForce 2 GTS (GigaTexel Shader).

Can Console Gaming Save AMD From Collapse? @ Benchmark Reviews
     Sat, Apr 13 2013 | 12:49P | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One year ago Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (NYSE:AMD) company stock was publically trading for $8.20 per share, and since then value has sunk to as low as $1.86 per share, performing far worse than other stocks within the same industry. While the numbers don`t lie, they don`t always tell the entire story. Not so long ago I wrote an article that asserted how game developers would see new demand for their products as the platform technology improved. The obvious winners were those invested in game console production and development, but it was too early to point the finger at many specific names. Sony`s PlayStation and Microsoft`s XBOX platform were expected to thrive well into the next generation, but hardware component suppliers were still an unknown... until now. Unofficially announced, both Sony and Microsoft have selected Advanced Micro Devices as the source of their next-generation console processor needs. How much will this help to save a failing company?"

A Futurelooks News Flash - Futurelooks Checks Out The 2013 BCIT Student Association Spring LAN Party (Video)
     Sun, Mar 24 2013 | 3:50P | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One of the coolest things that Futurelooks does is go out and support events that show great potential to be more than they are today. Over the past year, weve gone out and supported the BCIT Student Association (BCITSA) LAN Party at the BCIT Burnaby Campus in Canada, first in Spring of 2012 and again in the Fall of 2012. Weve seen it grow from about 80 people to 100 people to completely sold out at 150 people at this latest event, in just one short year. *"

Desktop PC: Intel Says the End is Near @ Benchmark Reviews
     Thu, Feb 21 2013 | 4:23P | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Back on August 2010, I made a prediction: desktop PCs have an expiration date, and that time may not be far off. I followed-up that article with several more editorials that contained plenty of truth, but our readers commented in revolt. Even some of my industry peers said I was pessimistic, and that the enthusiast desktop PC industry would continue to thrive and grow. I later predicted key points that would prove themselves essential for Intel to sustain desktop motherboard development, and now Intel has announced the end of the desktop platform - or rather a slow three-year wind-down toward an end by 2016. Here`s how the desktop PC ends..."

NVIDIA Free-to-Play Review
     Sun, Feb 17 2013 | 8:08P | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As I said earlier, all three of these games are enjoyable and fun because they are. They`re also different games, so naturally they are enjoyable and fun in different ways and for different reasons. PlanetSide 2 I feel is fun and enjoyable in what I feel are the most important ways, of these three. World of Tanks is also fun and enjoyable, but is lacking in design elements that I believe are important for the experience of any game. Hawken seems to exist as a manifestation of our desires for big things and big explosions, which does make it fun and enjoyable, but almost relies on that instead of a solid gameplay experience, like what you get with the other two games."

Why Michael Dell Made His Bold Move
     Wed, Feb 06 2013 | 9:00A | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Dell's decision to go private (and Microsoft's $2B investment) are big news in the tech world today, but there's precious little in the way of hard evidence for why Michael Dell decided to buy back the company he founded as a college student back in 1984. The Microsoft angle has gotten a lot of press, but it's not the primary driver of the deal. Michael Dell clearly has some ideas about how he wants to refocus the company; Dell signed off on $5B in acquisitions in the past 12 months, and $13B in the past few years. All the major acquisitions have been enterprise companies; he's clearly preparing the company to take on HP and IBM in lucrative segments of their own markets. While it may not have the same requirements to shareholders now, Dell still needs to explain how it plans to reinvigorate its brands, leverage its new partnership with Microsoft, and invest in businesses...

[Tech ARP] Facebook Lies In Its Advertisements!
     Mon, Feb 04 2013 | 9:53A | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
My problem with Mark Zuckerberg taking Facebook public isn`t that he gets to make a gazillion dollars - *this is capitalism, remember?* Or that many Facebook shareholders feel that they were ripped off in the IPO - *caveat emptor, my friends!* My problem with him taking Facebook public is that he no longer seems to be focused on making the world open. Instead, he seems to be more beholden to the shareholders, and proving to them and the world that he can monetize the huge Facebook community. Now, I have nothing against corporations making money. After all, corporations are people, aren`t they? They should be entitled to a decent living wage like everyone else. Well, at least that`s what Mitt Romney says. The only thing I`m against is corporations lying to make money. I`m pretty sure there`s a law or two against such things."

Tablet: A Wish List For Better Devices
     Mon, Jan 07 2013 | 9:01A | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As 2013 rings in, we all get a chance to look back, reflect and take inventory on where were are. Here at HotHardware, it also gives us a chance to think about our wish list for the year ahead, and how we hope our favorite gadgets and platforms evolve. Evolution is a natural part of growth in consumer electronics, and with companies like Microsoft, Amazon, Google and Apple gaining more and more brand recognition across mainstream devices and markets, the stakes have never been higher. In turn, there has never been a better time for these companies to push the envelope in an effort to stay one step ahead and more than just "current," when it comes to cutting-edge technology and features. Below, you'll find our top wishes for some of our favorite tablet and smartphone devices as well as their respective platforms.

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
