Google™ Honeycomb Clock Widget Lands On Android™ Market

Recently Google affirmed that it is arranging for hosting a press conference where discussion will take place regarding forthcoming release of Android Honeycomb and also about Android ecosystem. While other manufacturers already have intimated about their forthcoming devices powered with Honeycomb at Vegas, Google is yet to furnish any sort of detailed information regarding Honeycomb itself.

This will project a comprehensive but simple experience about Android Market for users which were not intended to fulfil the limitations of the factor of mobile form. One can just take a glimpse of Android Market on one’s web browser, click new applications and view them after downloading automatically on one’s Android-based device.

Lately, provision has been made for bringing in a version of Android for big-screen devices. This is like branch of Android which can be run parallel to the version 2.x while the vital thing is that it indicates Goggle’s commitment that results in giving ISVs the necessary confidence for investing in bigger Android projects. NVIDIA and Motorola were the winners since they have been selected to extend the reference product and hardware. As soon as the XOOM is launched, one may expect for Honeycomb product announcement which will be coming in the market ithe later part of 2011.

NVIDIA® begins taking defective notebook GPU claims

NVIDIA is one of the leading companies in visual computing technology and also invented the graphics processing unit (GPU). A GPU is used to generate interactive graphics on computers. NVIDIA is an expert in graphics technology and also has 1,600 patents worldwide for GPUs. Almost every graphics card used in any computer has been made by NVIDIA. NVIDIA is also known for their ultimate quality in GPUs. The first GPU was made by NVIDIA in 1991 and since then there has been no stopping. They have continued to grow bigger and bigger and now they are the GPU leader. In 2008, there was a claim for defective laptop GPUs.

NVIDIA is taking claims for defective graphics cards. The issue is about overheating of the GPUs. The problem may be due to weak packaging material used in the GeForce 8 series graphics chips. The laptop users were experiencing problems like distortions, scrambled video and others on their displays. But in the recent settlement with class action members, a $2 million fund has been establishment for reimbursement and replacement of graphics cards and other components related to NVIDIA. This $2 million settlement was approved by a California court and NVIDIA started accepting claims. They are accepting notebooks for repair, replacements or reimbursements.

Intel® six-core i7-990X Extreme processor

Intel six-core i7-990X Extreme processor can be regarded as the company’s fastest desktop chip. In the year 2009, Intel launched their experimental 48 core central processing unit (CPU), on a stamp sized piece of silicon. What is really interesting is the processing capability of this 48 core CPU chip, with amazing power management and power efficiency. So, a 6 core or 4 core chip from Intel with high speed and performance capabilities was likely to be launched.

There has been an increase in the number of processors that can be squeezed into a single chip and the concurrent speed of processing uses cutting edge technology. In fact, the company Tilera has claims of production of 36 core and 64 core chips, and have even announced a 100 core processor. NVIDIA, is reportedly working on a 512 core graphics processing unit (GPU). Working hand–in-hand with Microsoft and various cloud computing technologies, Intel strives to retain its position as the best processor manufacturer around. The concept of requirement of less cooling and reducing power consumption against the erstwhile higher and highest frequency race, maximizing processing capacity in smaller and smaller data centers, is what Intel is beating the competition at.

Ranging from the Intel 4004 processor introduced in 1971 commercially, with 2300 transistors and 10 Micron Silicon technology, Intel has, over various steps grown to 3 GHz speed, with 820,000,000 transistors and the 45nm silicon thickness technology in their Core 2 Quad processors in the year 2007. The transition from 1969 to 2007, in 38 years, with technology changing at breakneck speed is something to reckon with. Multi-core processor chips, principally are designed to do more work per clock cycle, run at lower frequencies, with each core behaving like a discrete logical processor with multiple threads to share the core’s resources. HT technology or Hyper Threading technology gave birth to this need. In fact, Hyper Threading technology allows maximization of performance by splitting the resources of each core, in the multi-core technology system. This logical evolution of Hyper Threading technology has brought about various software vendors like Microsoft, IBM, Red Hat and others to develop software, treating the multi-core processor as a single central processing unit.

This parallel processing system and threading technology have brought about dynamic changes in power consumption, memory latency and performance. This requirement of heavy performance requirement and scarce processor resources in various rich media content with demands on encoding and decoding multimedia as also editing video, 3D modeling, heavy scientific calculations, high-end digital content creation are the major factors responsible for chip manufacturers to think diverse and make available hardware to suit. Computing architecture and high-end platforms will definitely bring major changes in computing for medicine, IT, digital office, digital home, mobility solutions and even gaming.

NVIDIA® Launches 3D TV Software

Nowadays we are seeing a new technology innovation everyday and companies are developing interesting products. NVIDIA is one of the leading companies in visual computing technology, and also they are the one who invented the GPU. A GPU is used to generate interactive graphics on desktops and laptops. NVIDIA is expert in graphics technology and they also hold 1,600 patents worldwide for GPUs. Almost every graphics card used in any desktop or laptop has been made by NVIDIA. The company is also known for their ultimate quality in GPUs. The first GPU was made by NVIDIA in 1991 and since then there has been no stopping. They have continued to grow bigger and bigger and now they are the GPU leader.

NVIDIA launched 3D TV software recently, which will work if you have both a compatible NVIDIA graphics card and a HDMI 1.4 based 3D TV. There are so many features of this software, like it will allow you to play 3D games, enable 3D Blu-ray movie playback, and also has the ability to view 3D photos on your PC if you have a compatible 3D camera. The 3D TV also provides a number of 3D photos for you to try out even if you do not have a 3D camera around.

Consumers have been waiting for this software since a long time; during the developments it came across numerous delays. There are more than 500 3D compatible games. Some of them are Borderlands, Just Cause 2, Darksiders and Batman: Arkham Asylum. They look and play awesome in 3D. If some titles will have any issues with 3D TV playback, a small information bar will show up in the bottom right of the TV.

Nvidia Mobile GPU Lawsuit

The problem of faulty NVIDIA GPUs put the company to shame. The consumer`s court held NVIDIA responsible for the defect in hips of laptops sold to a few consumers and a law suit was claimed. Three after the purchase of the laptop with the defected chips, the laptop became `dead` with the GPU based chips not functioning and there was nothing that could be done. Your 1, 2, 3 year old laptop would suddenly not boot-up and cause problems.

Class action suits were claimed. While NVIDIA did not give in to the claims, they were made to settle in court towards those consumers who filed their claims. These consumers had bought the laptops and had found them defective over a period of time. Since they were at a quandary to claim their money or to use the laptops, the consumers having filed the lawsuit had been unable to get anything while, the company fatly accepted the claims and agreed to replace the laptops.

Beginning around 2006, NVIDIA shipped chips which would cook to death themselves, while it resulted in dead hardware for consumers. The consumers have had many months in the court where they have been trying getting through, a class-action lawsuit, which would result in a 2 million dollar accumulated claims for laptop the repair, reimbursement or replacement based on what the customer suffered.

NVIDIA agreed to make reimbursements to the claims of the consumers by making good to them the defective laptops and issuing them brand new laptops. They made good the money spent by them for repairs. As for HP laptops, since there were no replacements available for the units that were defective, the NVIDIA Company issued new replacements.

The list of possibly affected laptop consumers has gone up according to a report as of Jan 2011. Mostly Apple laptops and Mac users are affected – the models being those Mac Book Pro models manufactured between 2007 and 2008. The Dell and HP notebooks manufactured between 2005 – 2010 have been affected. In total, 21 types of models of the Dell machines are known to be affected as of the same number of models by HP too. 2 models from Apple Mac book Pro are affected. The claim period started on the 13th Jan and will go on till 14th of March. While Apple and Dell consumers will get replacement of parts and other related repairs to be covered by their claim, HP models are eligible for replacements.

Problems that came to the fore of distortions, and scrambled video were of the graphic components and display. Despite malfunctioning of the graphic components, there has not been any fall in the rate of consumption of NVIDIA products. The computer builders are in fact increasing their consumption of these products from NVIDIA. The failures in the GPU component were showing due to the decision of NVIDIA to use a non- eutectic material which causes corrupted video or no signal on heating up.
