Welcome to da-Zilla,
You have a interesting name. It is a long name and can be either male or female. How should I address communications to you in the future, male or female? Also I am planning to shorten your name to a nick name  and the ending der is male? Chiku is pretty neat... so is Chilani... Chi Chi is Spanish? hummmm

The problem with rumors: Nvidia 40nm parts *YAWN* delayed again

June 2, 2009

"WHAT DO YOU get if you cross Nvidia and 40nm? A stinking mess, with chips delayed from the purported late June to August.

Yes, the soap opera that is Nvidia production took another turn for the sad with the NV216 and 218 are delayed again by about two months. If you were expecting one to help with Carpenter Ant Awareness Week celebrations, don't wait, plan your party around a different card. The first 40nm chips from Nvidia won't be on shelves until August.

The NV218 is the smaller of the two, and it will get the brand name GT210. The NV216 will similarly be branded as the GT220. Since both are basically shrinks of the G9x line, the GT2xx series name is about as apt as the GT250. When you don't have products, spin, spin, spin.

If you are thinking they will be well worth the 10 month delay, prepare to be disappointed. Fast, capable and feature ridden are words that can be used to describe many cards, but not these. The 216 and the 218 are strictly entry level parts.

The GT210 will have 512MB of DDR2 on a 64-bit bus, and the GT220 will have 1GB of DDR2 on a 128-bit bus. The prices from the AIBs will be in the low $30s and mid-$50 range, and end users will end up paying more when distributors and retailers take their cut.

Both cards will only feature DX10, Nvidia can't even seem to do the extra .1 after more than a year of trying. Luckily, they won't have to worry about DX11 until 2010, they dodged that technical bullet with their usual flourish." http://www.semiaccurate.com/2009/06/02/nvidia-40nm-parts-yawn-delayed-again/

 Windows 7 Logo Certification for Graphics Cards : ATI shows off working DX11 chips June 3, 2009

AMD DROPPED A bombshell on Computex today, showing off not only an Cypress (commonly mis-known as R870) wafer, but also working silicon. As we keep saying, the competition has yet to tape out a chip.

Quick, count the dies

The demo itself was a loop of a character from the MS DX11 SDK, publicly shown running on real silicon for the first time. Not much to say, the demo itself wasn't all that exciting, just a high polygon character made with tessellation.

One interesting bit that AMD disclosed is that Cypress will support virtualization. You will likely need an 890 chipset that has an IOMMU in order to take real advantage of the capabilities. For many companies, this will be a killer app for the ATI chipset and video card combo.

Sadly, the hardware it was running on was behind closed curtains. Given that it is a development board, that is understandable, those things aren't very sexy. Unless you are a geek, and understand what the silicon is. Then it is very sexy, as long as you can get under the heatsink.

250  Hardware / Graphics Cards / GT300 Delayed til 2010... update June2009 on: May 05, 2009, 05:01:45 PM
GT300 delayed till 2010
GT215/216/218 MIA as well
By Charlie Demerjian
Tuesday, 5 May 2009, 17:25 IT LOOKS LIKE Nvidia engineering is getting right back into its old fighting form once again. The GT300 chip is delayed until 2010, and the GT21x parts seem to be MIA.

The big news is of course the GT300 delay. A few weeks ago it was promising insiders parts in October, a goal that was laughably unrealistic given that the tapeout was set for June. It seems that realism might be poking it's head through the Santa Clara FUD, er... fog, and NV has told those who need to know that it will be Q1 2010 now. Given its timeliness of late, we think it should append a bold "Maybe...." to that though.

251  Hardware / Hard Disk Drive / Intel Responds to Fragmentation with New X25-M Firmware on: April 16, 2009, 02:03:20 AM
Author: Allyn Malventano

Date: Apr 13, 2009
Subject: Storage
Manufacturer: Intel

Firmware Details, System Setup, and Pre-flash Setup
Firmware 8820 Details

Quoteth Intel: "It should be noted that any of our SSDs will see periods of reduced performance after significant random write fragmentation (white noise random fragmentation, not what Windows generally does with it’s “random” writes) as the drive cleans this all up mixed with additional data being written. This new firmware does not change this fact. What it does do is prevent the drive from getting into a state where further sequential writing will not recover the drive. You should see this with HDTach, or a large file copy, or just general use, etc. So, if a drive is in what previously seemed to be a permanently degraded state (as discussed, we still feel this is highly unlikely for a client PC user), and a user installs the new firmware they will feel an instant improvement for any sequential operations, which will get better in time as the drive cleans itself up further. This firmware will also prevent the user from getting into such a drastic state of fragmentation, and generally help ensure the sequential write performance is as good as it can be at any moment. This change really has no significant impact on random performance."

A Male DisplayPort cable connector end is rectangular with the lower right corner crimped @ two 45s, if you view it from a distance and perpendicular to it. The mounting bracket that is pictured is unique. It appears to be made of chrome plated, stamped carbon steel. The rectangular holes, resepticles, have a corner stamped out that may allow a DispayPort male connector to pass through.

A Male HDMI cable connector end is rectangular with the lower right and left corners crimped and rounded at the 45s.

Should the Mounting bracket be functional, then it would indicate that two DisplayPort cable ends could be connected to the terminals, female recepticals, on the cards...

Tuesday, 31 March 2009, 17:07 IF YOU THOUGHT Nvidia's spectacularly successful strategy in renaming the G92 to the GTS250, then seeding reviewers with ringers was low, you will love what it is doing with the 275. Yes, the company can go lower.
