While it is obviously based on Nvidia’s new Pascal GPU architecture, there are few information regarding the new mystery GPU, but rumors suggest that this might...

Are Transparent Displays On The Horizon?

Almost every sci-fi telivision program has tablets and monitors which are transparent and it seems that Samsung has finally build them. The only problem is that they are not that great to use. Samsung unveiled the first commercial installation of its cutting-edge mirror display at an upscale hair salon in Seoul, South Korea. The 55-inch display units act as a mirror while playing media over the mirrored image. The display represents a (90%) transparent layer over an underlying mirror, and is a genuinely...

How Often Does Jupiter Get Whacked?

Jupiter doesn’t get whacked by asteroids and comets quite as often as scientists had thought. Objects big enough to generate a fireball visible from Earth — such as the spectacular one that occurred on March 17 — slam into Jupiter about 6.5 times per year, according to a new study based on the pooled observations of amateur astronomers around the world. “In three years since our program started, amateur contributors from Europe, the U.S. and Australia have analyzed the equivalent...

nVidia Outs The Tesla M10

Nvidia has been talking about its Tesla M10 GPU designed to run on the latest version of the company’s GRID technology.

Nvidia says the Tesla M10 GPU can support up to 64 desktops per board and 128 per server with two boards. This means shedloads of virtual machines  which are potentially dead and alive. The new graphics card...

When Robot was formed in 2009, the company operated on a small scale, but things really changed when it landed a major investment from Chinese media giant Tencent in 2014.
