    Asmo said: This kind of thing is not good for Sony anyway. A lot of hardware but no software to compensate, it's a way to mess with the attach rate. Those people should know that it costs less and it is faster to do this kind of calculations using GPUs. No doubt you say this with many years of doing HPC under your belt....

The Air Force is one example. The Air Force Research Laboratory in ...

    Sony sued over Linux removal, Case documents surface

    JazzyJeez said:What's with all the analogies?This court case is less about the removal of other os, and more about someone trying to make a rather disgusting amount of money.

    Nintendo + Intel will be the killer next generation combo.

    Soleron said: alephnull said: ... If the machine was designed for realtime ray-tracing it wouldn't necessarily need a GPU. Furthermore, the papers I've read involving the RPU (a different ray-tracing chip) seem to conclude that the kind of architecture you would want to pair with ray-tracing hardware is a so-called "broadband" architecture (high memory...

PowerPC is likely out because I believe Nintendo will want to have a combined CPU+GPU on the same die. It means a great savings in power, heat, packaging size and board complexity. It only really leaves...

    Nintendos next generation, not a console, still a winner.

    HappySqurriel said: Personally, I think Nintendo would try to win the next generation by advancing the way games are played in a way that Sony and Microsoft wouldn’t think of or don’t seem to see the potential in.

    I remember the stories about the some of the games, real time strategy was a genre which started on the tabletop but really evolved into something more on the PC platform especially. I was really too young to remember as I started on the MS-DOS operating system and I believe I learnt how to type before I learnt how to read or write by copying my mother and father to boot up games. Not real time...
