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

LAS VEGAS--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--At the 2010 Consumer Electronics Show (CES), AMD (NYSE: AMD) today announced the shipment of its two millionth DirectX 11-capable graphics processor to its technology partners, cementing AMD graphics as the standard for DirectX 11 computing. This millions-shipped milestone comes just three months after the launch of the ATI Radeon HD 5800 series, the first DirectX 11-capable graphics products from AMD.

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?

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:

An interesting news release crossed my inbox this evening that has some very compelling implications. Kaspersky and NVIDIA want us all to know that Kaspersky is "leveraging CUDA
with NVIDIA Tesla GPUs to dramatically improve the performance of their
security software solutions by 360 times when compared to a Core2 Duo."

3D technology continues to gain ground with mainstream TVs being released this winter with support for the up and coming visual enhancement. One of the most exciting things coming for the world of 3D is the introduction of 3D Blu-ray movies coming later this year. I definitely expect a lot of noise to be made at January's Consumer Electronics Show about it.
