Imagination Technologies at CES
     Mon, Apr 28 2014 | 9:03A | Tradeshows / Events | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When we visited Imagination Technologies at CES, they were showing off some intriguing hardware that augments their GPUs in order to accelerate ray-traced rendering. Ray tracing is a well-known and high-quality form of rendering that relies on the physical simulation of light rays bouncing around in a scene. Although it's been used in movies and in static scene creation, ray tracing has generally been too computationally intensive to be practical for real-time graphics and gaming. However, Imagination Tech is looking to bring ray-tracing to real-time graphics—in the mobile GPU space, no less—with its new family of Wizard GPUs.

IMFT flash memory plant at Lehi, Utah
     Tue, Apr 15 2014 | 4:11P | Tradeshows / Events | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

"Going into this event, I had a rough idea of what goes into the testing and evaluation of a computer component. That said, I was literally blown away by the sheer scope and scale of Intel's testing and validation efforts. While many of these efforts are geared towards their enterprise and data center parts, those gains have repeatedly trickled down into their consumer products, as evidenced by the recent SSD 730 being a consumer product based almost exactly on their DC 3500 part. This trickle-down effect is not limited to recent products either. The SSD 710 and 320 launched as an enterprise / consumer pair and were constructed identically. You can even go back to the very start, where Intel's X25-E and X25-M were an enterprise and 'mainstream' / consumer edition launched in tandem and were physically identical save the type of flash memory used in each."

Posted by: STAFF
VisionTek Products LLC, a leading manufacturer of award-winning, high-performance upgrades and accessories for PC and Apple Macintosh computers, announced today the Glacially Epic Cryosphere Gaming Rig Sweepstakes. The grand prize to be awarded is the VisionTek Custom Shop built Cryosphere gaming rig, featuring nearly $3,000 of high-performance computer components from AMD, ASUS, Fractal Design, FUNC, and VisionTek.

 Showcased at CES to Rave Reviews

 To demonstrate the CryoVenom R9 290 as the industry’s first and fastest custom-built liquid cooled AMD Radeon™ R9 290 graphics card on the market at the recent CES show, the VisionTek Custom Shop team built a high performance gaming rig and dubbed it Cryosphere. Gaming and computer performance experts who viewed the system during CryoVenom’s launch event were impressed. “The Cryosphere liquid cooled gaming rig is loaded with amazing hardware that will devour your favorite games titles,” said Nathan Kirsch, Editor-in-Chief, LegitReviews. Steve Burke, Editor-in-Chief, Gamers Nexus opined, “PC gaming is about style as much as it is about performance -- the Cryosphere achieves both.”

 Built with the Best Components                                                                                         

 To complement the overclocked performance of its CryoVenom graphics card, VisionTek selected the best PC gaming hardware components available with the ultimate goal of awarding an extreme performance system to one lucky gaming enthusiast. The one-of-a-kind Cryosphere consists of:
