iChill GeForce 9600 GT ZEROtherm Hurricane

Guru3D has reviewed Inno3D’s iChill GeForce 9600 GT with the ZEROtherm Hurricane cooler.
Read the full review HERE

The Verdict:
Much like any other GeForce 9600 GT this product offers a lot of value for the money you have to pay for it.

And once you pop it into your PC, you’ll notice that sheer silence and formidable cooling that the ZEROtherm cooler offers.

First off although this cooler is fantastic it eats up an insane three PCI slots which is just impractical. As a result you’ll have less connectivity in the PC and you definitely can forget about partnering two of these cards up in SLI.

Despite of this small error in judgment on Inno3D’s behalf, this product remains one of the best 9600 GT money can buy.

GPUs deliver mammogram-like breast scans in 20 minutes

Be the first to comment - What do you think?  Posted by JeGX - at 10:35

Categories: Graphics Cards   Tags: , , ,

Taking annual mammograms is generally recommended for women with an age of 35 years and above. But these radiology procedures are inconvenient and can actually be painful, since the breast needs to be squeezed between two metal plates. TechniScan has developed a new method to scan a breast – a method that is based on the processing capability of GPUs to deliver 3D images, which could replace traditional mammograms one day. It is a fascinating example how we can take advantage of the enormous progress in technology to save lives.

Read the rest of the article HERE

The computer system uses four GeForce 8-series graphics cards to produce coronal image slices of the breast that will be exported in DICOM 3.0 format as well as full 3D views of a breast. TechniScan says that it takes just 20 minutes to render the images, compared to several hours that would be required on a CPU.

ASUS EN9600GT Matrix – Hybrid Cooling

Be the first to comment - What do you think?  Posted by JeGX - at 12:46

Categories: Graphics Cards   Tags: ,

The cooler consists of a large aluminum heatsink with heatpipes, which will be enough to keep the card cool when watching movies or doing less stressful tasks, but in case you do want to game a bit, there’s also a fan that will kick in when the temperatures rise. Besides all of this, ASUS has spent some time designing the cooler, giving it a sleek and clean look.

The Future – According to NVIDIA

NVIDIA is seeing as “the future of computing” – basically more GPGPU usage (i.e. the use of the graphics chip to process regular programs) and the co-existence of “competing” technologies like ray tracing and rasterization.

During the whole Editor’s Day nVidia repeated ad nauseum how marvelous GPGPU is, showing several examples of applications where performance increased monstrously by the use of this technique.

As for the rasterization vs. ray tracing battle, nVidia is seeing the co-existence of both technologies in the future, as ray tracing is in fact a better technology for some applications, but worse for others.

AMD focusing on multi-GPUs for future graphics cards

Be the first to comment - What do you think?  Posted by JeGX - at 08:40

Categories: Graphics Cards   Tags: , , ,

ATI plans to focus their efforts on developing smaller, more energy efficient GPUs for the mainstream market, and then integrating multiple chips into one card for the high-end crowd.

We took two chips and put it on one board (X2). By doing that we have a smaller chip that is much more power efficient.

We believe this is a much stronger strategy than going for a huge, monolithic chip that is very expensive and eats a lot of power and really can only be used for a small portion of the market.
