With an innovative all-in-one watercooled module, this graphics card is able to push performance by 11% and still be 12°C cooler than generic GF8800GTX cards. The EN8800GTX

  • ASUS Dual/Quad Core Serverboards

    ASUS has designed the DSBF-D12 and DSBF-D12/SAS serverboards. These two serverboards are designed to support both the Dual Core Intel® Xeon® Processor 5000/5100 Sequence and the Quad-Core Intel® Xeon® Processor 5300 Sequence; and utilize DDR2 FBD memory for their memory needs. The DSBF-D12 supports mainstream SATA2 storage by integrating 6 SATA2 300MB/s ports with built-in

  • VIA To Make Southbride For Godson Board

    VIA was recently contracted by the Chinese Academy of Science (CAS) of mainland China to supply south-bridge chips for a low-priced computer built on the institute`s “Godson” microprocessors. CAS rolled out a RMB1,599 (US$ 207 at US$ 1:RMB7.8) computer built around “Godson 2″ microprocessors last year. The computer runs on Linux OS and is a

  • Quantum Computer; Super-cooled & Lightning Fast

    D-Wave Systems will demonstrate the world’s first commercial quantum computer next week, a supercooled, superconducting niobium chip housing an array of 16 qubits. D-Wave quantum computer, called “Orion,” solves the most difficult problems—called “NP-Complete”—in a just a few cycles, compared to the thousands of cycles needed by conventional computers. Orion is fabricated out of the
