Sandy Bridge and Bulldozer to both support LR-DIMMs

Anthony Garreffa | RAM | Wed, Nov 24 2010 7:52 PM CST

Gone are the days of Billy boy saying 640k will be enough, most systems I sell go with 4GB of memory, some with 8. Triple channel kits come in 6, 12 and 24GB so memory is going up and up and up. Sandy Bridge and Bulldozer plan to combat this with LR-DIMM's.

LR-DIMM's are a JEDEC version of the late MetaRAM tech - which basically faked a DRAM chip with a heap of small ones. LR stands for Load Reduced, and that's exactly what the buffer on the DIMM does.

Angry Birds coming to all three major consoles in 2011

Don Lynn | Gaming | Wed, Nov 24 2010 7:23 PM CST

Angry Birds has been a mobile phenomenon for quite a while now, and now it looks like the pig-destroying avians are spreading their wings and slingshotting their way onto the Wii, PS3, and Xbox 360 in 2011 according to Rovio.

CEO Peter Vesterbacka dropped this information in a BBC interview as well as the fact that the company is also working on Angry Birds 2, which will not be a sequel but an all new game. Vesterbacka did not go into too many specifics, but did state that there will be more pigs in Angry Birds 2 and that "the pigs will be a lot more active than just being slingshotted at by birds." Pigs vs. Birds online multiplayer, anyone?

LG to introduce 23-inch 240Hz IPS LCD panel

Anthony Garreffa | Displays & Projectors | Wed, Nov 24 2010 7:17 PM CST

LG today announced the launch of a 23-inch 240Hz LCD for monitors that refreshes at an insane 240 frames per second. Being a fan of 120Hz gaming myself, I find this highly interesting - wouldn't mind testing one out myself! (wink TT gods, wink).

The full HD 23-inch 240Hz panel was developed by combing 120Hz tech with scanning backlight tech which enables a backlight to repeatedly turned on and off. The standard refresh rate of most LCD monitors is 60Hz, with 120Hz entering the market in the last 18 months (being pushed for NVIDIA 3D Vision mostly) a 240Hz refresh would significantly refuse motion blur - gamers alike, crying with joy.

Will Notion Ink's Adam be the next-gen Tablet?

Anthony Garreffa | Mobile Devices | Wed, Nov 24 2010 6:07 PM CST

These days - for hand held devices like the iPad and iPhone, most companies just want to copy Apple instead of going back to their own drawing board and releasing something revolutionary compared to their old products. This is what Notion Ink seems to be doing with the Adam.

Of course it has been delayed from it's original release date, but such a bold product can't just be hastily released. It uses a hybrid Pixel Qui screen, high-power GPU and a swiveling camera, things that Apple don't even use - which could make it seem (and hopefully be) a second-generation tablet.

Once the first watchbands for taking the latest gen iPod nano and turning it into a wristwatch surfaced, the floodgates opened and hoards of the things spilled onto the market. Another new watchband has surfaced today that look similar to the Griffin Slap watchband from a week or so back. The main difference is that the iWatchz bands unveiled today use normal buckles to close the band.

Kinect hacked for gesture-controlled robot

Shane McGlaun | Gaming | Wed, Nov 24 2010 1:00 PM CST

Most of the hacks I have seen of the Microsoft Kinect system have had no real purpose and have not done anything that I thought was interesting. A new hack has surfaced that actually has a purpose and controls a robot using gestures. I can see something like this for doctors in the future where they can just make gestures to control the robotic tools used for microsurgery.

The gang over at Willow Garage have offered up a hack that uses Kinect to control one of its PR2 robots that are used for all sorts of research and are crazy expensive. The control system looks really intuitive and slick even if it is in an early form. One cool thing the company is working on is using a pair of the Kinects in one system.

Flash Rods shows off sweet Back to the Future 500GB Delorean external HDD

Shane McGlaun | Storage | Wed, Nov 24 2010 12:04 PM CST

As long as I live I will remember when I was five and my dad drove us to the GMC dealership to buy a Delorean. I was so excited I could have stroked out. We got there and the one on display was sold and he ended up buying a used Vette instead, pretty much killing my high. Those Delorean cars are still some of the coolest rides I have ever seen made all the more famous by Back to the Future.

The drive is crammed inside a 1:18 scale replica of the Delorean from Back to the Future so it looks cool as hell sitting on your desk and gives you another 500GB of USB powered storage.

Chinese geek drops $15K to play MMORPG on massive 820-foot screen

Shane McGlaun | Gaming | Wed, Nov 24 2010 10:02 AM CST

We all know what they say about fools and their money right? A gamer from China has supposedly dropped $15,000 on a night of playing his favorite game on a gigantic screen that measures 820-feet long. The dude played some Chinese language MMO title and is said to be a guild leader. I suspect this may be a publicity stunt by the company behind the game.

The massive screen is in Beijing and is actually three different screens. The dude didn't get to stretch the game across all three of the screens because of the resolution issues. He ended up having three versions of his desktop on the ceiling and what had to be the worst neck crick in history.
