10 Sep Gamescom 2019: Ray Tracing Gets More Industry Support

Post Image

When NVIDIA first introduced ray tracing for its RTX-branded GeForce consumer graphics cards, I will admit I was a bit skeptical on the timing and performance needed for the hyper-realistic lighting effects. However, as I wrote about here, you really have to experience ray tracing to “get it,” and after I used it on five different […]

29 Aug Based On My Review, The Dell 7400 2-in-1 Lives Up To Its Enterprise Value Proposition

Post Image

Back in May, Dell refreshed its business line of Latitude laptops along with the launch of its new Unified Workspace. I covered Dell’s Unified Workspace already as well as the refreshed line of Latitude laptops in full, and now I want to focus specifically on my personal experiences with the Latitude 7400 2-in-1. Before we jump into the Dell Latitude 7400 2-in-1, it is relevant to talk about the Latitude 7000 series first.  The Dell Latitude […]

29 Aug TSMC’s Cheng Says Moore’s Law Isn’t Dead And Teases Its N5P Node

Post Image

TSMC, a company who has not broadly communicated much to the outside world in the past, uncharacteristically penned a blog today, here. In fact, this is TSMC’s first corporate blog, ever. I shouldn’t be surprised, though, as the author is no other than Godfrey Cheng, TSMC‘s new Head of Global Marketing. I have worked with Cheng when […]

19 Aug The Qualcomm-Tencent Deal Demonstrates That The US And China Need Each Other

Post Image

Today, Qualcomm announced a sweeping, strategic collaboration agreement with Tencent Games covering 5G, smartphones, augmented and virtual reality, and personal computers. While I don’t pay too much attention to these kinds of non-binding, collaboration agreements, this one is interesting for many reasons above the current icy relationship between the US and China. While there wasn’t […]

31 Jul Frank Azor Joins AMD As ‘Chief Gaming Architect’

Post Image

Today, AMD confirmed the rumor that Frank Azor, formerly of Dell and Alienware, will be joining AMD to head up its cross-platform gaming efforts.

31 Jul Synaptics Timing With Edge Solutions Aligns With Google’s Increased Privacy Push

Post Image

Google held its big annual developer conference, I/O, back in May.
