  • AMD leaks have been plentiful this weekend, just days before the Hawaii event. There have been leaks/rumors surrounding the new video cards and there has been leaks/rumors about Kaveri. Lets talk about Kaveri. The most recent rumors surrounding Kaveri are that the chip will top out at 832 stream processors instead of 512. The “leaks” show the chip posting several hundred percent gains in benchmarks over CPUs that cant take advantage of gpgpu compute like HSA can, all on 3GB of 1600 DDR3. Kaveri is going to be the first chip ever to support HSA, so hearing rumors that it...

  • We all know what OUYA is, it’s that small, cheap, Android based gaming console that recently started shipping and everyone has already forgot about. You know the cheap console that everyone reported as having poor build quality and piss poor performance. Yes OUYA. Beyond its many shortcomings, OUYA was a big move for the gaming industry. It marked the first real attempt to bring Android into the living-room as a gaming console and media entertainment center.  With the momentum behind Android it really makes sense, Android dominates the smartphone market and in turn consumers are eating up all the content...

    OUYA was so last year. Enter Project M.O.J.O.

  • There is a epic battle waging inside your computer tower.So check this out, AMD just released a marketing video on youtube, pretty cool right? No? So why am I writing about a video on youtube? Well 1. I am an enthusiast that likes awesome stuff, and 2. I am an investor in companies like AMD. Soooooo, as an investor, I research companies and its competitors blah blah blah. The point I am trying to get to, is that I look for any sliver of information about anything relating to a company, this includes a companys youtubes. The youtube video in...

  • I like to think that starving artists starve for one of two simple reasons. Simple reason number one is that not many people tend to buy art, the other reason is that maybe the artist has very little talent. Either way, being an artist is not the hottest field to be in if you are looking to make the big bucks. Think about it, even if a artist becomes the talk of the town, most of the time, said artist is long gone and dead before their work is even realized. Sounds win win to me. This brings the Wacom...

  • Well it  has been confirmed,  Android is the most ballerific mobile operating system out there. Android safe mode! need I say more. Im sure that most of us are familiar with safe mode, it has always been there for when things take a turn for the worse, always there to help us get those machines up and running again. Dont know what safe mode is? Well let me explain, safe mode is a built in feature of everyones favorite operating system that help those PC repairmen/repairwomen get your junk working again. You know, that one time you walked into a...

  •   Malware, its a son of a *****. On Monday, June 9th, there are going to be roughly 3.5 million people out there who are going to have a bad day. This is the day of operation “Internet shut off.”  Why will this happen? Well that’s a long story, but it all boils down to malware that is no longer harmful. Sounds like a oxymoron, right? Keep reading. It revolves around DNS. What’s DNS? It stands for domain name service which is run on servers all over the world. A DNS is sort of like a translator, you give it...

  •   When you think of 28nm, what do you think of? I think of Nvidia kepler (NVDA), AMD’s 7000 series(AMD), Qualcomm’s s4 krait’s (QCOM), Texas Instruments (TXN) Omap’s and the public fab that makes it all happen, Taiwan semiconductor manufacturing company (TSM:NYSE). Right away you are most likely thinking this is going to be yet another post about CPU’s, GPU’s and SOC’s, while technically is it, the focus today is about the supply and demand of 28nm and the stock that will benefit from its shortage. It seems that lately, all the rage has been surrounding 28nm parts, and for...

  • Oh sweet mother Allah baby Jezus Buddha raptor. Asus has just announced the transformer2 aka Transformer Prime! Jonney Shih bust the thing out and left us all shocked and awe’d. I totally thought he was just going to keep plugging his ultrabook, but no no, ASUS FTW, AHHHHH. Bout time this thing  is announced, although we all knew it was coming sooner or later, I had my bets on later. The heart of this beast is Nvidia’s Tegra 3 chip, the “five” core part  (one of the cores is left to do mundane tasks) is alive and well even though...

  • If you are a user of i-Google, then you most certainly know about the changes that went about this morning (actually this blog was posted like a week or two late, sue me). From what it looks like, Goog has fixed some bugs that plauged i-google for what seems like forever on top of making the whole user interface look cleaner. Above having the options to change the theme, google has now given us a ton of other options when customizing our i-google’s. It did come as a shocker when I hit the refresh button this morning shortly after I...

  • Apple A6 vs Nvidia tegra3, this is what eveyone has been asking. You may be wondering (like I am) these days, about what the near future holds for the tablet market. We are going to be in the 4th quarter here pretty soon and the next gen tabs should start hitting the shelves soon if we are to believe what these manufacturer’s keep feeding us with their press releases. Since the beginning of the year, Nvidia has been hawlking powerpoint slides of tegra3 and the roadmap of future parts, Asus has been talking of its second gen transformer and rumors...
