Techbits

Greg
Techbits are a brain child of Greg Hess, who initially started them on the Discreet Forum, then moved them here to a permanent home; they are gathered, (chewed up) and processed by Greg Hess and Thomas Bruno, an all around good guys, hardware experts and 3DLuVr staff/contributing authors.

Chip performance could be doubled thanks to new breakthrough - The Oxford researchers, working for Automatic Parallel Designs, claim they can achieve this while utilising less die area and also say better power efficiency would result through using the new findings to re-design math circuitry (about 50% more energy efficiency than 0.13 micron technology according to the researchers). AutoPD also claim to be working with a major CPU manufacturer on a new floating point multiplier and the findings could influence chip makers in many areas including processor and DSP technology. The algorithms are also being considered by at least two other processor makers according to recent reports.

I bought one of these glass mouse pads recently. It makes for a unique mousing surface and looks cool too! Comes with teflon mouse foot stickers to speed up your mouse on any surface (they work great). Note: If you have an optical mouse get the black Icemat version.(read their site for details) The clear one doesnt support optical mice. This item is worth a look especially if you are a gamer.

Samsung introduces 1GHZ DRAM for graphics - Samsung has introduced a 128-Mbit synchronous DRAM intended for graphics and networking applications based on the double data rate (DDR II) interface. The chip is capable of a data transmission frequency of 1-GHz and a data transmission rate of 32-Gbits per second, according to the company. Mass production of the 128-Mbit 1GHz DRAM is due to start some time before the end of September 2002.

Biometric authentication seems to be, on the face of it, a groovy idea. Do away with hard-to-remember passwords and easy-to-lose keys and cards; authenticate your identity with your voice, or your face, or your fingerprint. What could possibly be wrong with that?
