Reaching a long-sought goal in computing research, scientists have created a computer circuit based on a single molecule, which could lead one day to far smaller and faster computer chips that use less power.
International Business Machines Corp. said Monday that its researchers have built a logic circuit -- a set of electronic components that performs a processing function -- based on a tiny cylindrical structure made up of carbon atoms that is about 100,000 times thinner than a human hair.
Newest SoundBlaster cards quadruple the processing power, add 1394 ports and high-quality DACs.
Creative is launching this week a new line of sound cards aimed at bringing professional quality sound to your desktop.
The Duke of URL has just posted its review of the Gigabyte GA-7DXR. The GA-7DXR is one of the latest in the new wave of DDR motherboards. It sports 3 DIMMs, AGP Pro, IDE RAID, and the AMD 761 chipset. The review covers everything from layout, configuration, overclocking, to benchmarks on Linux (MP3 encoding, Quake III Arena, Kernel Compilation).
After teasing with technology announcements, ATI is finally unveiling the line of graphics boards that implement its advances, notably the Radeon 8500 gaming board that features twice as many transistors as its predecessor.
A little-known Austin startup expects to make a big splash in the chip industry today when it unveils a new design technology that could transform the way extremely fast processor chips are created. The announcement by 4-year-old Intrinsity Inc. offers further evidence of Austin's prominence as a hot spot for designing processor chips, which are the glamour products for the semiconductor industry.
