CableCARD Tuner Essentials Guide @ missingremote.com
[Sep-09-11] (0 Comments)

* At a higher level, the technology was developed to protectconsumers from being forced into having to rent set top boxes (STB) atincreasing fees from cable companies (or MSOs) without an alternative. Froma home theater PC (HTPC) perspective, it meant the ability to natively tunehigh definition programming from a cable provider (previously the optionswere only analog cable, or digital over the air broadcasts).

OCZ Technology Agility 3 240GB @ tweaktown.com
[Jun-08-11] (0 Comments)

I started testing the OCZ Technology Agility 3 a couple of weeks ago, but before writing it up took a few weeks to reflect on my findings. While away, I saw one of the greatest finishes ever at the Indy 500 unfold right in front of me and my wife and I welcomed a new addition in our hearts. Even with all of these events going on around me, the Agility 3 was on the back of my mind.On the surface the OCZ Agility 3 looks like a great bargain, just like the Agility 2. You get a SandForce SF-2281 controller, the same used in the award winning Vertex 3 and the same great 3 year warranty. When the Vertex 2 and Agility 2 were launched over a year ago, the differences were in the programming and the Agility 2 was great value given that you got the same level of performance once the high IOPS burst of the Vertex 2 passed.

AMD Mecha HK-2207 Demo 1.2 @ ngohq.com
[Apr-01-11] (0 Comments)

The Mecha HK-2207 real-time demo features a number of post processing effects (depth-of-field, lens flare, ghosting, aerial perspective/atmospheric, LUT, emissive and reflection) provided as an easy approach for developers and artists to adopt Microsoft DirectX 11 programming. This demo also uses a current trend in game engines utilizing deferred lighting and deferred shading allowing many more lights and rapid prototyping. A newly developed GPU accelerated physics particle system is introduced utilizing DirectX 11 DirectCompute. Bullet Physics is used with a new fracture/destruction approach that also features procedurally generated unique debris leveraging DirectX 11 tessellation.

AMD Demos DirectX 11 Capable ATI Graphics Card @ techfragments.com
[Jun-03-09] (0 Comments)

Today at a press conference in Taiwan, AMD demonstrated the world's first GPU capable of DirectX 11 technology. The demonstrations shows the major improvements DirectX 11 gives us over DirectX 10 and also shows us what AMD has in stored for an ATI Graphics Card coming out before the end of 2009 capable of DirectX 11. AMD shows three primary features of DirectX 11; one being tessellator which allows for less blocky and more fluid and realistic details, Compute Shaders which allows for less restricted programming, and finally they show us how DX11 is better designed to take advantage of multiple CPU cores.

Intel believes that video encoding belongs on the @ bit-tech.net
[Jun-10-08] (0 Comments)

“When you’re encoding on the CPU, the quality will behigher becausewe’re determining which parts of the scene need higher bit-ratesapplying to them,” said François Piednoel, senior performance analystat Intel.Piednoel claimed that the CUDA video encoder will likely deliver poorquality video encodes because it uses a brute force method of splittingthe scene up and treating each pixel the same. It’s interesting thatIntel is taking this route, because one thing Nvidia hasn’treally talked about so far is video quality.“The science of video encoding is about making smarter use of thebits and not brute force,” added Piednoel.I asked Piednoel what will happen when Larrabee turns up because thatis, after all, a massively parallel processor. I thought it’d beinteresting to see if Intel would change its tune in the future once ithad something that had the raw processing power to deliver similarapplication performance to what is being claimed with CUDA. Intel saidthat comparing this to a GPU is impossible, because the GPU doesn’thave full x86 cores. With CUDA, you can only code programs in C andC++, while x86 allows the developer to choose whatever programminglanguage they prefer – that’s obviously a massive boon to anyone thatdoesn’t code in C.

John Carmack on id Tech 6, Ray Tracing, Consoles, Physics and more @ pcper.com
[Mar-13-08] (0 Comments)

The first point to analyze is on the discussion about ray tracing;John obviously feels that Intel's current stance on using the traditionalray tracing algorithms for gaming isn't likely to win out for thenext-generation rendering technology. This obviously isn't great news forIntel since even though John isn't the only game programming genius around,his opinions seem to have more weight than just about anyone else in theindustry. John more or less backs Dr. Kirk's view that rasterization hastoo many innate performance benefits to be taken over by ray tracing UNLESSIntel is successful in stretching the Larrabee architecture to incredibleperformance levels.

Linux gaming feature @ bit-tech.net
[Apr-10-07] (0 Comments)

While Wine does a great job at running most Windowsapplications underLinux, certain games sometimes just won't work. Call it badprogramming, call it faith, but the fact is that some applicationsrefuse to accept Wine. The guys over at Transgaming noticed this andused a hole in the X11 licensing to create a proprietary fork of Wine.But the developers didn't claim they invented the warm water, andinitially called their 'version' WineX.

[Apr-10-06] (0 Comments)

Most people have heard of object oriented and structuralparadigms of programming. These two are generally widely used. But thereare many programming problems which cannot be solved using theaforementioned structures. This results in implementation of theseproblems outside the main module which finally results into confusionamong developers and tangled code.

How System Calls Work in Linux? @ osweekly.com
[Apr-08-06] (0 Comments)

Every GNU/Linux programmer here reading this article must haveused system calls to code their programs. GNU/Linux programming isincomplete without system calls. System calls are initiated by softwareinterrupts. Before we delve into that, however, let’s define systemcalls. A system call is the mechanism used by an application program torequest service from the operating system, or more specifically, theoperating system kernel.

How To Create Your Own Computer Games @ thetechzone.com
[Dec-30-04] (0 Comments)

I’ve always loved video games, ever since I first played them on a friend’s computer in the afternoon after elementary school. There’s something almost magical about the fact that we can move images around and interact with virtual worlds, a living fantasy presented for us to interact with however we please. I’ve also always wanted to make games myself but, until recently, didn’t have the technical knowledge to do so. Now, I’m a second year software engineering student, so if I weren’t able to code a game without too many dramas there’d be something drastically wrong. But what about the common person: the person for whom the term ‘memory leak’ conjures up images of their grandfather, ‘pipeline’ is where the water flows, and ‘blitting’ is unheard of? Well, everyone can get in on the game creation process, and you don’t even need to learn ‘real’ programming to do so

Matrix Orbital MX212 LCD @ Bit Tech
[Apr-07-04] (0 Comments)

I remember when fitting an LCD to your case involved soldering wires to PCBs, programming display software and oodles of spare time. The Canadian company Matrix Orbital has done it’s best, over time, to eliminate those obstacles and increase LCD/VFD accessibility to the masses. In this review I will be looking at a sample of the MX series; the MX212. Matrix Orbital claim that this is not just a simple LCD but a control centre for many of the other features that live in most of our home PCs...
