  1. Nvidia has updated its public GPU roadmap, revealing new details about upcoming products including a graphics solution that will purportedly offer about four times the memory bandwidth of the new $1,000 GeForce GTX Titan. Codenamed "Volta," the GPU family is...

    Interesting, I'm not anxious about them but is quite interesting to see how it will reflect on performance and if any paradigms are changed with these ideas (AMD's HSA and NVIDIA's "unified virtual memory").

    These are exciting times for enthusiasts, because eventually all the new technology trickles down to affordable consumer parts. It may seem slow while you're living it, but look how far we've come in just 10 years - cheap SSDs, cheap super-fast RAM, affordable liquid cooling, SATA III, USB 3.0, 4 TB drives, gigabyte NICs - all unimagined in 2003. The next 10 years should be mind-blowing.

    Even that won't be enough, me and the rest of the world want 4k resolutions. I never liked the 3D BS, but I drool over high resolution panels.

    Ahh, the GTX has reclaimed its throne (mini-keplar GK-104 matching Southern Islands was funny) and Nvidia's roadmap looks good. All is well in the world of GPU's with the rightful king in place.

    Yeah, that 1TB/s bandwidth will be great for 4K.
  8. Logan aka Wolverine and Parker aka Spiderman? See the codename within the codename?

    Isn't going from Wolverine to Spiderman a step back instead of a step forward? :p

    I thought Maxwell was Intel's CPU line after Haswell? But it says 'Nvidia's next-gen Maxwell architecture'. I'm a little lost here, can someone please fill me in?

    Not if you follow comic book history... Spiderman was significantly stronger than Wolverine ever dreamed to be.

    Intel's next CPU architecture is Broadwell. Maxwell is Nvidia's move into parallel computing. Maxwell and Parker look to become the components- ARM 64-bit processing + general purpose GPU, known as Projects Denver and Boulder.
    The first development kits -presumably to kickstart developers to code applications for the technology- named Kayla has just been launched:

    Right, that makes more sense. Easy mistake to make I guess.

    I follow a bit of comic book history (not enough to make any argument with you), but I still doubt that. Wolverine out strengths him, is as agile as him, and wont really stay down for long.

    No no that would be broadwell after haswell
