Intel Shows Off Optane SSD

Over the weekend, Intel pushed ahead with the release of its first consumer and enterprise SSD based on 3D XPoint technology, with latency rates roughly one hundred times lower than NAND flash alternatives that have dominated the market since 2007. The first Optane-branded storage device is called the Optane SSD DC P4800X, which the company says is designed to be used either as high-performance storage or as a caching device in data centers. The card features a capacity of 375GB, with latency of...

Can Violence In A Game Promote Safety?

Can Violence In A Game Promote Safety?

When the original Doom was released in 1993, its unprecedentedly realistic graphic violence fueled a moral panic among parents and educators. Over time, the game’s sprite-based gore has lost a bit of its impact, and that previous sentence likely sounds absurd. Given what games have depicted in the nearly quarter century since Doom, that level of violence no longer shocking so much as it is quaint, perhaps even endearing. So when it came time for id Software to reboot the series with last year’s...

Astronomers Find Runaway Star Siblings

Astronomers Find Runaway Star Siblings

Researchers have spotted a long-lost relative of two runaway stars — the three likely parted ways in the Orion nebula as recently as the 1400s (from Earth’s perspective). Two of the young stars were previously discovered speeding away from one another using radio and infrared observations, and observers had traced back to where they could have originated if they’d been from the same system initially. But something didn’t quite add up: the two seemed to not have as much combined...

Is Java Script The Most Popular Language?

Beancounters at RedMonk have taken time out from their busy prayer wheels to create a list of the world’s most popular programming languages. The list is based on data from both GitHub and Stack Overflow and the Red Monks have chanted a top 10 list for 2017. 1: JavaScript 2: Java 3: Python 4: PHP 5: (tie) C# and C++ 6: (tie) Ruby and CSS 7: C 8: Objective-C While there was little change in the top ten, there were a few stat changes in the also rans. This was mostly because GitHub data...

Can Microsoft Make Game Pass Profitable?

Of all the various innovations we’ve seen in this console generation, it may be the business model changes that have the most lasting impact on the games industry. Though originally introduced in the back half of the previous generation, the notion of giving consumers “free” games on a monthly basis for continuing their subscription to console online services has become a standard part of the model in this hardware generation. The degree to which this is expected, and to which the...

Did Radiation From Neighboring Galaxies Help Create Monster Black Holes?

Did Radiation From Neighboring Galaxies Help Create Monster Black Holes?

Bright radiation emitted by neighboring galaxies likely fueled the rapid growth of supermassive black holes in the early universe, a new study shows. Ancient black holes range in size from millions to billions of solar masses and date back to as early as when the universe was less than 1 billion years old. Their early existence has puzzled scientists, as these cosmic beasts are thought to form over billions of years.  Supermassive black holes can be found at the center of most, if not all, large...

Will Gigabit LTE Smartphones Take Off This Year?

It has been quite some time since Qualcomm announced Snapdragon X16, the world’s first Gigabit LTE modem. The same GigabitLTE Snapdragon X16 modem is now part of the Snapdragon 835 – a 10nm SoC that is about to debut in a dozen high end phones. Many people who are not close to the matter are having a hard time to understand why it’s important to get faster modems in an everyday device. Many moan that the speeds they are getting from their carriers are not even touching the Cat 4 maximum...

Monster Galaxy Cluster Sheds Light On Cosmic Microwave Background

One of the largest galaxy clusters ever seen shines bright in this image from the Hubble Space Telescope. Called RX J1347.5-1145, this cluster lies 5 billion light-years from Earth. Hubble’s observations of this galaxy cluster helped astronomers at the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) in Chile to probe the secrets of the cosmos by watching how it interacts with the cosmic microwave background (CMB) — weak radiation left over from the Big Bang, when the universe as we...

Is The U.S. Losing The Supercomputer Race?

Advanced computing experts at the National Security Agency and the Department of Energy are worried that that China is “extremely likely” to take the leadership in supercomputing as early as 2020. A report with the catchy title “U.S. Leadership in High Performance Computing” has been penned by HPC technical experts at the NSA, the DOE, the National Science Foundation and several other agencies. It said that China’s supercomputing advances are not only putting national security...

Did Dark Matter Play A Minor Role In The Early Galaxies

Although the invisible substance known as dark matter dominates galaxies nowadays, it was apparently only a minor ingredient of galaxies in the early universe, a new study finds. This new finding sheds light on how galaxies and their mysterious “haloes” of dark matter have changed over time, researchers said. Dark matter is thought to make up about 84 percent of the matter in the universe. Although dark matter is invisible, its presence can be inferred by its gravitational effects on...

Samsung Preparing 7nm Processor For 2018 Debut

Despite having its CEO behind bars, Samsung will be ready for volume production of its 7nm process node in 2018. Samsung Electronics demonstrated its foundry technology roadmap at the China Semiconductor Technology International Conference (CSTIC) held in Shanghai on March 12. Samsung  VP of Technology at Ho-Kyu Kang said that all chipmakers will have a few headaches when trying to move to sub-10nm process technology, and will have a hell of a time improving yield rates for the node. He said that...

Are NAND Prices Jumping Due To Supply Issues?

Client-grade SSDs of mainstream capacities continue to see rising contract prices in the PC-OEM market during this first quarter. Beancounters at DRAMeXchange have added up some numbers and divided by their shoe size and worked out that average, contract prices of MLC-based client-grade SSDs are projected to go up by 12-16 percent compared with the fourth quarter of last year, while prices of TLC-based products are expected to increase by 10-16 percent sequentially. Second quarter, end device sales...

Did Mars Have More Water Than Originally Thought?

Mars may have harbored even more liquid water on its surface in the ancient past than scientists had thought, a new study suggests. Mars meteorites commonly contain a mineral called merrillite, which is regarded as an indicator of dry environments. But some of the merrillite in Mars meteorites may actually have been converted from a “wet” mineral called whitlockite by the asteroid impacts that blasted the Red Planet rocks toward Earth, the study indicated. “If even a part of merrillite...
