Even though the next-generation GF100 GPU is not rumored to be available until March, NVIDIA was showcasing the technology and what it can do.  We have discussed NVIDIA Surround in a basic manner already and we'll have more later but I wanted to show our readers another demonstration that we captured on video from the show floor.  In it you will see a system based around a Fermi GPU do some impressive GPU compute simulations in a game-style settings.

We have been waiting with baited breath for the arrival of a LucidLogix Hydra board that is freely tested and reported on and now thanks to AnandTech we do.  The MSI Big Bang Fuzion is ready for launch and it seems that the delay was unquestionably necessary.  The performance numbers are not awful, but neither do they beat the native multiGPU solutions from nVIDIA and AMD.  There were also issues with games that were on the supported list, something that is never endearing to a consumer.  Drop

Revisiting the performance of AMD's new Eyefinity on various cards as new games come out certainly helps consumers get an idea what card (or cards) they will need to pick up in order to play their favourites on three monitors, but that isn't the only reason.  Reviewers see a lot of different products, of which the vast majority are improvements on existing technology, only faster or with new features.  The chance to see something completely different comes infrequently and Eyefinity is one of those special technologies.

Earlier in December we reported that NVIDIA had more than likely lost the big high-performance computing win with Oak Ridge Labs, and the lack of any kind of response pretty much confirms that. 



The Fermi Architecture - 512 cores no more?

Has NVIDIA lost its big HPC win with Oak Ridge Labs?

If true, the reports that NVIDIA has lost the deal with Oak Ridge Labs to power one of its upcoming super computers would be a huge blow to the ground NVIDIA has won in the high performance computing market.  A story over at SemiAccurate repots as follows:

If you are an AMD graphics card user there is an updated driver available for you today with the release of Catalyst 9.12.  There aren't a lot of performance changes in this driver (only 3DMark Vantage and STALKER: Call of Pripyat are noted) but there are some nice feature additions:

Perhaps try to improve your cards over generations?
