    Nvidia's CUDA Celebrates 5th Anniversary

    Why are most supercomputers not built using consumer level parts? I mean, what is the difference with Quadro graphics cards that makes them so expensive?

    Max Payne 3: Creating a Cutting Edge Action-Shooter

    This looks first class. Max Payne 1 & 2 are two of the most timeless games ever. The snowy level made me want to replay Max Payne again. Wonder if it's a flashback to the first game.

    why are smart phones and tablets so slow rendering webpages?

    pretty much. If you look at browser benchmarks like sunspider, phones and tablets are about 10 times slower than PCs. Code has a lot to do with it as well though, the latest ios 5 update made a dramatic improvement.

    Amazing what you can afford when you overprice your products and underpay your sweatshop workers.

    Poll: Have video games driven you to violence?

    The closest I've come to violence is stamping the floor a bit when getting my ass kicked in a half life 2 deathmatch tournament .

    Holy crap, it worked! Dead video card, resurrected!

    Just tried the card in another PC and it works normally as far as I can tell. Strange. My PC works okay with the card I swapped from the other PC. So I dunno. :/

    Holy crap, it worked! Dead video card, resurrected!

    I've just done this with a 9800GTX which was getting severe corruption before crashing. This was when doing anything with 3D (even Windows Aero) or video playback (like youtube) It no longer has those problems, but it is however running games at half speed. Frame rate is literally half what it...

    Next Generation Console Hardware Update

    It's not entirely impossible that they could include an Xbox 360 CPU/GPU package onboard like Sony did with PS2 hardware built in original PS3s. From what I understand, the 360 CPU/GPU is on one chip on the latest slim models. Actually, they might only need the CPU part if it's an AMD GPU...

    Next Generation Console Hardware Update

    AMD Fusion makes perfect sense for a new console. They only have to pay one license fee, cheaper to manufacture, it's a single platform that is designed to work efficiently instead of bringing an IBM CPU and AMD GPU together to work in harmony etc etc

    Crytek: 40 upcoming titles powered by CryEngine

    Any competition for Unreal Engine 3 is a good thing IMO. Crytek overpromised with Crysis 2, boo hoo. Still doesn't take away from the fact that CE3 is probably still by far the most cutting edge and powerful engine out there, although Frostbite is looking rather incredible too.
