Hardware News and Review RoundUP december 12 2012

News

Ballpark estimates for those initial numbers were recently brought up in an Asia-based report, which cited much higher numbers than iSuppli is seeing now.


It’s an ambitious initiative given the number of hardware combinations that exist not only today, but tomorrow and beyond, yet Nvidia is determined to see this project through after having worked on it for more than half a decade. Gamers can get their first taste of Nvidia’s new tool today by downloading the GeForce Experience beta.


The patch will also avoid issues encountered in the .dll hack that might create a mission walkthrough break (missing QTE prompts, critical information, etc;).


Given the volumes Intel produces now and keeping in mind that it is in process of a great expansion into the growing markets of smartphones and media tablets, transition to 450mm wafers is a logical decision for Intel. Thanks to large volumes and large wafers, Intel will reduce its production costs, something that it needs to better compete against its new rivals that belong to the ARM camp.


The new HTC 5-incher is set to hopefully bring them back into the game with smartphones. They have had it rough over the last year or so and revenues have declined pretty severely. Not too long ago the leaked images of the supposed “M7″ surfaced, which suggests that HTC is pushing harder than ever before to get back to prominence.


As a result, the new cluster, even with its four-fold increase in speed, can make only 71,000 guesses against Bcrypt and 364,000 guesses against SHA512crypt.
