NVIDIA bring hybrid technology to the PC

January 12, 2008 NVIDIA has announced the industry’s first hybrid technology for PC platforms that increases graphics performance and reduces power consumption. NVIDIA Hybrid SLI technology is based on the Company’s GeForce graphics processor units (GPUs) and SLI multi-GPU technology and enables NVIDIA motherboard GPUs (mGPUs) to work cooperatively with discrete NVIDIA GPUs (dGPUs) when paired in the same PC platform. Hybrid SLI provides two new technologies - GeForce Boost and HybridPower - that allow the PC to deliver graphics performance for today’s applications and games when 3D graphics horsepower is required, or transition to a lower-powered operating state when not. For lower energy consumption and quieter PC operation, HybridPower allows the PC to switch processing from a single GPU or multiple GPUs in SLI configuration to the onboard motherboard GPU.  Read More

Westinghouse’s US$10,000 47-inch 2560 x 1440 LCD Monitor

January 10, 2008 There’s no doubt that more screen real estate offers more productivity, which led to the success of the 30-inch monitor market offerings from Dell, HP, Gateway, Samsung and Apple, and to a lesser extent, the HD 46- and 47-inch marketplace. Westinghouse looks set to take a step beyond its $2500 1080p line, 47-inch LVM-47w1 as its stand at CES this week includes QuadHD 47-inch and 56-inch displays. The US$50,000 56-inch display runs 3840 x 2160 Quad Full HD resolution (8.3 million pixels) while the US$10,000 47-inch runs at 2560 x 1440 Quad HD (3.7 million pixels). Both will see showroom floors in "March or April", and you can bet that the marketplace will respond, so all those big-screen-guys and –gals out there can look forward to a big year.
