We first told you that G92 is 65nm based with 256-bit memory interface back in June and seems that HKEPC agrees with us now. Lots of confusion on the discussion forums that G92 has 512-bit memory interface and is the highest end GPU from NVIDIA which, in fact is not. HKEPC revealed that G92 will
Intel has added a new mobile segment for Montevina platform in Q2 2008 with the new 25W Penryn processors. The 25W Penry enables slimmer and smaller form factors notebooks but with mainstream performance. Battery life is enhanced too. Therefore it is easier to design cooler and quieter notebooks. The 25W Penryn has 1066FSB and 3MB
Nvidia MCP 73 chipset supporting Intel platforms will launch on September 25 this year. Five versions of the MCP 73 will be introduced, four including an IGP; GeForce 7150 nForce 630i, GeForce 7050 nForce 630i, GeForce 7050 nForce 620i and GeForce 7050 nForce 610i, and a single non-IGP chipset the nForce 630i. The chipsets series
We heard about an upcoming GPU from NVIDIA on 256-bit memory interface earlier this month and we thought it is the rumored 256-bit version of G84. Now we learned that it is actually the next generation G92, a 65nm performance part supporting PCI Express 2.0 and 256-bit memory interface. G92 performance lies between GeForce 8800
Western Digital is now shipping its 250 GB WD Scorpio™ 2.5-inch Serial ATA (SATA) hard drives. The drives employ perpendicular magnetic recording (PMR) technology to achieve the highest capacity available in a small form factor drive and have WD proprietary features that make the drive quiet, use less power and run at cool operating temperatures.
A team of Korean scientists has developed the world’s first 8nm non-volatile flash memory unit cell that could one day be built into a semiconductor chip. The creation of the new flash memory was possible by the merging of nanowires with silicon-oxide-nitride-oxide-silicon technology. A fully developed tera-level NAND flash memory can hold 500,000 audio songs
VR-Zone brings you yet another Core 2 Duo mainboard Review, the Foxconn 975X7AB. Featuring Foxconn’s very own Foxone overclocking technology, let’s take a look how well it performs against its 975X competitors as we explore the Foxconn 7950GT 256MB OC Edition at the same time…
