The Technology Plateau: How Your PC Will Always Be Outdated

Another 3 years and another expensive PC component has become outdated in your system. What was once the best part that ran every game is slowly devaluing in front of your very eyes. Not exactly instantaneous, but it does end up happening. We have all been there. Technology is a fast paced beast for those that can rarely keep up with it and a plethora of information for those who can. Newer technologies, newer advancements in resources, and the state of the socioeconomic climate itself are all part of a crazy stream of what sets the standards of current technological evolution and what I call the “Performance Fidelity Expectation Barrier (PFEB)” which is what every product aims to do: perform.

But what is it all for? At the end of it all – is it for extreme 3D modeling in Maya or ZBrush/AutoCAD? Studies show that the majority of people that actually build PCs and super-rigs are in a realm of two words: the gamer. That is right. GPUs, CPUs, power supplies, memory all aim for one thing in a general spectrum: frames per second or superior gaming at resolutions that the viewer wants for themselves. Whether it’s the 4Kophiles or the 1080p HDTV enthusiasts, the aim of every device on the market is not just performance, but satisfaction in a growing trend that correlates to life values itself with the world as a whole and societal economics.

Sony and Microsoft’s respective PlayStation 4 and Xbox One video game consoles have been brought to life by the manufacturers by putting together small different pieces of very powerful hardware. Both the consoles rock top quality hardware including RAM, CPU and GPU. The central and graphics processing units of the next-gen consoles are specially made and customized by AMD.

AMD Event

Next-Gen Console Sales and Demand for Radeon Graphic Cards Boosted AMD Earnings

Advanced Micro Devices, abbreviated and most commonly known as AMD, is a veteran American multinational semiconductor company that manufactures computer related technologies and chips. Two most important components i.e. GPU and CPU of the next-gen video game consoles have also basically been developed by AMD, customized specially to fit each console.

Despite being one of the leading central and graphics processing units developer, AMD’s financial conditions over past few years have not been smashing. Other companies such as NVIDIA prove to be a durable competitor to AMD. One thing that makes AMD more notable over other computer chips manufacturers is that it powers PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and certainly this is why the company’s earnings have improved quite well.

Naveed SirajBIG DATA – Big Data Goes Green

By Naveed Siraj

I’ve recently made the effort to be more environmentally friendly. I turn the TV off at the mains when I’ve finished watching it, and I’ve stopped letting the tap run when I brush my teeth. Did you know that you can save up to eight gallons of water a day doing that?

We’re constantly asked by governments and utility companies to be more energy efficient in our day-to-day lives, so I wanted to do my bit. I hope you are too.

There’s no hiding from the fact that we all need to be more energy efficient to reduce harmful carbon emissions and to satisfy growing demand for energy from the ever-increasing global population. Take Asia Pacific for instance. Between 2010 and 2035 energy demand is set to increase by 67 per cent, which will account for more than half the world’s energy consumption.

This wouldn’t be such a problem if all the resources needed to generate power were renewable. Unfortunately however, coal, oil and gas – the main resources used for energy production – are running out, and when they’re gone, they’re gone.

DirectX 12 logo
Games Industry

Microsoft announced DirectX 12 at Game Developers Conference 2014, a newer version of its famous and widely utilized DirectX gaming API. Along with the support for PCs, Laptops and Windows Phone devices, Microsoft also boasted individual Xbox One DirectX 12 support, claiming that the new API will provide much-needed strength to the latest next-gen console.

Microsoft-DirectX-12-GDC-2014

DirectX 12 Comes with Titles Resources Feature – Gives More Control to Developers and Allows Further Optimization

In this situation where Microsoft’s Xbox One video game console has to bear swelled amount of blame everyday, the company’s new advanced API support for the console appears kind of a reinforcement. The new enhancements and improved hardware utilization that Microsoft promises DirectX 12 will offer seems quite an addition to the new API.

Software aside, DirectX 12 may seem like an aide for the Xbox One by tweaking hardware utilization mechanism but it is apparently quite clear that it will not directly put a great influence on the hardware and increase its overall aptitudes. Though the better software optimization will provide increased efficiency and will make the development process easy. Middleware SDKs like Graphine Software’s Granite SDK will correctly profit from upcoming DirectX 12.

E Sports
Games Industry

One of the biggest things that are really helping in expanding gaming industry publicly worldwide is Electronic Sports. ESports (also referred to as competitive gaming) is a term used for video game competitions organized by various companies and firms especially between professionals. Just consider eSports as your normal holiday nights gaming sessions, but with millions of people watching you while you compete.

ESports Viewership Growing Rapidly Due to Increased Western Interest – More and More Publishers Putting in Investments

With growing interest in everyday gaming, eSports is expanding every year and it has taken video games into the homes which accommodate no gamers. Not only persistent gamers but those people who play games occasionally just for passing time have also come to be incessant viewers of eSports. Interest of people in eSports is growing with every passing year.

ESports have taken gaming through global perspective since it first flourished on PC hardware. Acting as a warm water pool for gamers who like to swim in the gaming world, eSports completely revolutionized gaming as a profession. Covering a large number of viewership, each passing day is granting hundreds of new fans to eSport and the numbers are growing with no stop.

Hardware Industry

MSI has released cheaper motherboards for the Mini ITX and Micro ATX based on the budget B85 Intell Haswell chipset. The new boards intend to provide a complete gaming experience to users running on a budget. The new boards feature Audio Boost, USB Audio Power, Killer LAN and a new hardware design for increased performance.

New boards include a variety of features including Military Class 4 components, OC Genie 4, BIOS 4 and Command Center

Starting from Audio USB, the board eliminates the problem of audio output being affected by high power consumption of high-end USBs. The MSI USB Audi Power continues to deliver 5V to USB ports on the motherboard separately, thereby improving USB and audio performance. This results in stable power and better audio signals.

Intel has announced improvements to its SD card size computer called the Edison. The Edison is targeted at wearable devices. The computer was announced in January this year and has the Intel Quark x86 CPU, with a clock speed of 400 MHz.

intel-edison-wearables

More sensors added to the chip. Upgrades are likely to expand chip usability.

The original Edison computer had limited sensing capabilities and could only be used on small, wearable devices such as watches and health monitoring. Intel has now added a sensor hub to the new edition. This will enable users to add sensors for location, environment and light, said Mike Bell vice president and general manager of New Devices group at Intel. Intel hopes the redesigned Edison will be used in the design and development of wearable products. Bell said he envisioned the Edison to be used in wearable devices such as a US football hat where the chip would be capable of doing real time analysis related to the impact of a hit.

This is the reason why Intel did not focus on size when adding improvements to the Edison. The improvements will make the rectangular circuit board 1 millimeter larger on each side. This is due to the addition of a circuit block with connectors to which additional sensors will be attached. “Smaller may not be better,” Bell sais, emphasizing upon the need to increase size in order to improve the capabilities of the computer. “You can connect [any sensor] to this”, he said.

Update – The information posted in this article is not official but just an expectation of the upcoming keynote from Neogaf. We might not get to see any of the said technologies so its better to keep your expectations low.

NVIDIA’s Graphics Technology Conference 2014 (GTC ’14) commences today and the graphics giant is going to showcase their latest technologies during the three day long event. It looks like NVIDIA is geared up for the key note tomorrow where CEO of the company, Jen-Hsun Huang is going to preview their latest 20nm Maxwell GPU architecture along with other innovations in the graphics industry as revealed by Pro-Clockers forums.NVIDIA Maxwell GTC 2014 Jen Hsun Huang

NVIDIA Previewing 20nm Maxwell Architecture With Unified Memory Architecture At GTC 2014

There has been speculation going on over the past few months that whether GPU companies will release their next generation graphics cards on the 20nm node or move to some other process. Well, it looks like NVIDIA is officially going unveil during the keynote that Maxwell is based on a 20nm architecture and will feature support for UVM (Unified Virtual Memory) when it hints the market in second half of 2014 as the GeForce 800 series.

This is exciting news since Maxwell itself would be the first architecture that is confirmed to be build on a 20nm node and features Unified Virtual Memory support which will allow the GPU and CPU, both to share the system memory and graphics memory in a coherent manner. It is also hinted that NVIDIA will specifically be previewing their GM10* GPU architecture. We have already seen the GM107 core which is the one featured on NVIDIA’s recent GeForce GTX 750 Ti and GeForce GTX 750. The GM107 which is NVIDIA’s first generation Maxwell core delivers brilliant efficiency and the most highest performance per watt. The 20nm Maxwell cores which are presumably based on the second generation Maxwell GPU core would further enhance the performance per  watt for GeForce and Tesla parts.

Be Curious. Look Inside™  Not All Tablets Are Created Equal – By Naveed Siraj

I was told as a child that it’s what’s on the inside that counts and makes us who we are. This has resonated with me ever since, which is why I’m passionate about my work at Intel and helping people to understand this when they’re choosing a tablet device for the first time.

So what makes up the inside? We all know that atoms are the basic building blocks of life that make up everything we know. They are the food we nourish ourselves with, the water that keeps us hydrated, the bed we sleep in and the technology we use each day.

Microsoft has popped the lid on their upcoming DirectX 12 API which aims to enhance GPU performance with low-overhead and adding new rendering features. Most of us were expecting that the new DirectX 12 API will require new hardware to fully support the technology but that’s not the case at all as revealed during the GDC event, DirectX 12 will support all current hardware from NVIDIA, AMD and Intel.Microsoft-DirectX-12-GDC-2014

Microsoft’s DirectX 12 API Supports All Current GPU Architectures

This is a great news for desktop users as the majority of PC audience use a variety of hardware configurations which include mainly three vendors – Intel, NVIDIA and AMD. All major hardware companies have announced that their current generation of products will fully support the new Direct3D 12 API which will improve the utilization of the hardware to its maximum potential so that applications get improve performance in gaming along with ease of development on developers end.

AMD’s Raja Kadouri was the first to announce DirectX 12 support for their GCN (Graphics Core Next) hardware. AMD has always been the first to adopt the latest DirectX APIs due to their partnership with Microsoft on GPU and API development. Since DirectX 7, their GPUs have been the first to feature support for the new APIs from Microsoft and they had been working closely with Microsoft in the development of DirectX 12. Bear in mind that AMD had already developed their own proprietary API known as Mantle which is available in DICE’s Battlefield 4 and recently came to THIEF from Square Enix a few days ago.

How do you define the value of something you buy? Value takes on different meanings for different people, but all too often the focus of ‘value’ is upon the amount of money something costs. While cost is an important part of the equation, we also need to consider the benefits of a purchase too.

Naveed Siraj Intel Country ManagerNaveed Siraj

What do YOU Value?

 Working out the value of a tablet purchase is no exception and is a decision many people across Asia are making right now. Supporting this, research from Intel [Footnote]projects a compound annual growth rate of 38 per cent (2013 – 2017) in the tablet market. The same research shows that one in every five people surveyed from South-East Asia is planning to buy a tablet, rising to half of those in Taiwan willing to take the step. There’s no denying that the demand is there.

 But with a huge variety of devices offering many different features and benefits at a multitude of different prices, how do you work out which device will provide you the most value? To do this, you should not only consider cost, but work out the benefits of the tablet, which can be done by understanding how you will use it.
