Phoney’s News First Week January 2014 CES Edition

Posted on Updated on


So I get to sit down every week or two and read the news from place’s like Tom’s Hardware, Fudzilla, HardOCP, PC Perspective and many more wonderful sites, but there’s just one thing I can’t seem to remember what I read two weeks ago not alone remembering what happen a month ago. So with this Douche Bag blog I can easily post the links to the Article’s and no more saying were the hell is that link or article I was reading.

GIGABYTE Launches BRIX Pro and Gaming SFF PCs (Watch Video) 😛
(Still sticking with Zotac or there new Zbox Sphere for the Living Room.)
AMD Demonstrates Free G-Sync Alternative at CES (Watch Video)
(Wouldn’t get shit from AMD when Nvidia has something like G-Sync Period.)

(Picking one of these bad boys up for DVD Media, having two 500GB drives is just a pain in the ass.)
NVIDIA “GTX 790” Will Have 10GB GDDR5?
(Believe it when I see or read about it, although if it’s true AMD will never launch something to take it on.)
Intel Renames its McAfee Security brand
(I remember when the Hackers were holding data for ransom, its funny because just about all systems I fix have McAfee or Norton Anti-virus Pre-installed.)
Microsoft Windows 9 code Name “Threshold” and probable Shipping in April 2015 😐
(Microsoft expects to deliver three milestone releases of “Threshold” before its final release. It’s unclear what these releases will be called (Beta, Release Candidate, etc.) or which if any will be provided to the public.)
Asus Displays its Z87-Deluxe/SATA Express Motherboard (Watch Video)
(The Z87-Deluxe/SATA Express motherboard is set to be the first to feature the SATA-Express standard. It is particularly impressive considering that it seems that the SATA-Express won’t even be standard on the next-generation Z97-Express chipset.)
Corsair Shows Off Custom Mechanical Keyboard with Per-key Variable Lighting (Watch Video) 😎
(Corsair’s announcement last month didn’t highlight the fact that each key could be colored independent of the rest, but that’s just the case. If you wanted, every key on the board could be colored differently or, if you want, you can make a cool rainbow pattern. One word Wicket!)
Intel’s Dual OS Platform Allows for Instant Switching Between Android and Windows
(You’ll be able to switch between Windows and Android nearly instantly. Wow I can do that with the PC Now, did I mention I don’t own a Smart Phone. Also its mobile McAfee solution free to end-users soon, for the love of god hope it ant anything like it is Now.)

CES 2014: A Look at NVIDIA’s Most Ambitious SoC Yet: Tegra K1 Kepler 😯
(Love when Nvidia compares its K1 to Apple’s top-end A7 chip. On GFXBench 3.0′s Manhattan test, the K1 proved about 2.6x faster. Oh and in case it wasn’t obvious before, A7 doesn’t support Unreal Engine 4 nice little jab there, NVIDIA. Also With one last slide, NVIDIA says that its Tegra K1 is far more powerful than the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on the GPU and CPU front, while it draws about 1/20th of their total power 5W.

Jen-Hsun is a man who loves his cars, and so it’s of little surprise that his company’s Tegra chip is going to find its way into some future models. A special chip has been designed for the task, called K1 VCM, and NVIDIA touts it as being “supercomputing in your car”. Audi and NVIDIA Expand Visual Computing in the Car

While visual computing possibilities no doubt come to mind here, the chip could play very important roles as well. Take for example the image Tegra would process on-the-fly while you’re driving down a highway: Thanks to its processing power, K1 would be able to detect potential hazards (even small ones such as driving too fast based on the number of car lengths between you and the vehicle ahead), and be able to determine the proper speed limit by reading signs on the side of the road. This of course all ties into the autonomous vehicle, an area NVIDIA is keen to make a serious splash in.

For the more “fun” side of what Tegra K1 could bring to vehicles, NVIDIA demoed an information dash that looks real, but isn’t. It’d be displayed on a high-res screen, and would be entirely customizable mostly up to the vehicle vendor, but I’m sure the user would have good control as well. Can’t wait to actually see something like this is a vehicle, what the future holds for us is going to be crazy.)
