    Asus has the first Nvidia Optimus laptops~!

    Kudos, I guess, to Asus, being the first manufacturer to incorporate Nvidia's Optimus technology into actual products. The Taiwan-based company has announced five laptops (note: I refuse to use the term "notebook" when referring to laptops; I think the name "netbook" is dumb, too, so at least I'm consistent) that range in size from 13.3 inches to 17.3 inches, all of which use Optimus. "What is… Read More

    Microsoft to introduce Zune Phone with Windows Mobile 7 at MWC

    If there is one rumor that tends to come and go and agonizes Windows Mobile fans, it’s the one about a Zune phone. Although it’s not officially confirmed, Gizmodo has it on good word that Microsoft will be introducing a Zune phone at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona this year. More specifically, it will be a Windows Mobile 7 phone with Zune features and capabilities, so it’s… Read More

  • Looks like it’s Splitsville for NVIDIA and Intel

    Looks like it’s Splitsville for NVIDIA and Intel

    That NVIDIA and Intel haven’t been getting along lately isn’t big news but it looks like NVIDIA has finally gotten up from the dinner table and left the restaurant in a huff. The epicenter of the problem appears to be NVIDIA’s Ion chipset, which provides some much needed oomph to netbook and nettop platforms. Intel wants to keep a distinct separation between its low-power, low-cost Atom… Read More

  • NVIDIA and Abobe combine forces for hardware-accelerated flash video

    This is either a good thing or a bad thing. Actually, like most things, it's a bit of both. Adobe's FLV file format is the de facto standard for web video due to sharing sites like YouTube using it exclusively. Many would argue that's a bad thing (despite the fact that it works well for most people) because it gives a single company a stranglehold over an entire province of internet content. So… Read More

    ASUS 12-inch Eee netbook with NVIDIA Ion, Windows 7, 11-hour battery leaked?

    Well good morning, Interesting Netbook. You have caught my attention thanks to your inclusion of NVIDIA’s Ion chipset, 1366x768 display, 2GB of RAM, Windows 7 operating system, and longer-than-long battery life. Read More

  • EeeBox PC gets Ion power, can handle 1080p video

    EeeBox PC gets Ion power, can handle 1080p video

    ASUS' NVIDIA Ion-powered EeeBox PC has gotten sort of official. It's on ASUS' website now, at least, although there's still not much in the way of pricing or availability. The specs look pretty nice, though, with a whisper-quiet setup thanks to a dual-core Atom N330 CPU, 2GB of RAM, 250GB SATA hard drive, 802.11b/g/n wireless, card reader, and, of course, the horsepower to push full 1080p video.

  • $800 video card is worth every penny if you're into that kind of thing

    $800 video card is worth every penny if you're into that kind of thing

    BFG has always been one of the go-to brands for high-end video cards and hardware, and their latest opus continues the tradition. The BFG GeForce GTX 295 H2OC is the beastliest card out there, and is easily the most powerful single-card solution out there, even beating out such dual-GPU solutions as the Radeon HD 4870 X2. That's some serious power... must be why it costs $800. Read More

  • Zune HD, powered by Nvidia's Tegra

    Zune HD, powered by Nvidia's Tegra

    There's a reason why the Zune HD's interface moves so smoothly. Powering the device is the Nvidia Tegra, which Nvidia recently described as an “an entire computer-on-a-chip,” and one with “eight separate processors, including: a GPU, two video processors, and audio processor, two ARM core processor and more.” (That “and more” bit is a bit ambiguous for my liking, but what are you gonna… Read More

  • Nvidia's wee netbook will be called the Firefly

    Nvidia's wee netbook will be called the Firefly

    Nvidia is shopping around a design prototype running their Tegra ARM processor, a chip powerful enough to run Wind CE and power a wee keyboard and screen. Tegra was supposed to change the way we thought about smartphones a few months ago but the chipset never took off. Sadly, this doesn't seem like it will make any headway either. Read More
