    Lightbulb Anandtech News

    Only a short month after the launch of the GeForce GTX 465, NVIDIA is back again with a new card: the GeForce GTX 460. Built on their brand-new GF104 GPU, the GTX 460 shakes up the mainstream in a big way by bringing NVIDIA's DX11 Fermi family to a $199 card and in the process righting what was wrong with the GTX 465. Along the way we'll also see just what NVIDIA did to the GF104 GPU to make this happen, and why GF104 is much more than a simple GF100 derivative.

    It's been a while since we've been able to write a glowing review of an NVIDIA card, but today we'll see why NVIDIA is offering the right combination of price and performance to claim the $200-$250 as their own.

    Hmmm, does ATI finally have some competition? I sure hope so; we need a price war!

    I bit. I'll try to post up a review once it arrives.

    Anandtech: The SSD Diaries: Crucial's RealSSD C300


    The promise was high. Crucial was to not only offer better than X25-M performance but also be the first to deliver a 6Gbps SSD. Competing controller makers wouldn't hit 6Gbps until Q3/Q4 at the earliest. Two things stood in Crucial's way: 1) a little company called SandForce and, 2) a pesky set of firmware issues.

    With the latter taken care of, and the former dropping prices to be more aggressive in the market, it's about time that we gave Crucial's C300 SSD a good look.

    Anandtech: OCZ Unveils 4GB DDR3-2133 Modules

    The amount and speed of the RAM in a system is always indicative of the user and the software. Small home users require nothing more than enough for the operating system, word processing, web browsing and email. CAD engineers, VM users, and video/ music/graphic editors may require density over speed, to cope with a potentially large workload, while overclocking fanatics like memory that goes fast. OCZ plans to cater to both overclocking and high memory users, with the announcement of high speed, 4GB memory modules.

    Anandtech: Microsoft's KIN: A Eulogy

    After being on the market a short six weeks, Microsoft announced that it was scrapping the launch of KIN devices in European markets, and with it, further development of the platform stateside. While the premature death of the platform isn’t really a shock (the phones had glaring issues and ran an OS that clearly had no roadmap in a Windows Phone 7 dominated future), the KIN included a notable number of features Microsoft and its Danger team executed better than anyone else in the smartphone market today.




    Even though they're devices you'll probably never encounter in person, as just under 10,000 were sold (as of this writing, there are 9,341 active KIN devices using the platform's Facebook application), they're a glimpse into the future of a relatively fresh mobile device paradigm. One where the cloud rules entirely, where devices are little more than gateways into all of that data already on the web. Google and Apple are slowly moving towards that vision, but Microsoft has nearly all the pieces ready today. If Microsoft wants to dominate the smartphone market with Windows Phone 7, rolling KIN's cloud centric functionality into the platform will be key to success.

    Anandtech: Low Power Server CPUs: the energy saving choice?

    Keeping an eye on power when choosing the hardware and software components is thus much more than naively following the hype of “green IT”. It is simply the smart thing to do. We take another shot at understanding how choosing your server components wisely can give you a cost advantage. In this article, we focus on low power Xeons in a consolidated Hyper-V/Windows 2008 virtualization scenario. Do Low Power Xeons save energy and costs? We designed a new and improved methodology to find out.

    Anandtech: The iPhone 4 Redux: Analyzing Apple's iOS 4.1 Signal Fix & Antenna Issue


    In case you haven’t noticed, the iPhone 4’s antenna design has come under considerable scrutiny. In our iPhone 4 review, we investigated the iPhone 4 antenna and came to two conclusions. First, that iOS 4 was displaying signal bars in an overly optimistic manner, compressing the dynamic range of possible signal bars users can see. Second, we identified a worst case signal drop of around 24 dBm when the iPhone 4 is cupped tightly in the left hand, covering the black strip and possibly detuning the antennas and adding additional attenuation from the presence of the hand.

    Since those initial measurements, we’ve been working tirelessly to both characterize the problem, fully understand the mechanisms behind it, and report on a number of possible solutions.
