F.E.A.R Preview

As many of you will be aware, F.E.A.R (or First Encounter Assault & Recon for short) involves a rather mysterious looking girl in a red dress, a man with an unappetising taste for human flesh, and some rather flashy action set pieces al la’ The Matrix. All of this is brought together by one of the best game engines around. ?There has been a great amount of talk surrounding this game of late, and Guru 3d decided?to take a quick pre-release look at both single and multiplayer aspects of this game, with some preliminary testing and benchmark results to give you an idea of just what to expect, and whether your brand spanking new 7800GTX will be just as scared of that Girl in the Red Dress as you are!

Microsoft Fingerprint Reader Review – Tweaknews "Finger print readers have been around for a long time ? in Hollywood, where you most likely see them being used to access high security areas in action movies, but similarly they have been around for surprisingly a long time in army bases around the world. As time went on they found their way into corporate networks protecting vital company data before swiftly moving into our homes. Today you can pick up a good quality fingerprint reader in many shops but there is one that Microsoft is touting to be the best and it is pushing its technology into keyboards, bundling together with mice and as a separate fingerprint reader module, which is what is going to be reviewed here today." United Keys LCD Keyboard Preview – ThinkComputers ?Not long ago, did a small article/review on a new innovation, an Oled Keyboard, I am sure everyone knows what I am talking about, it was posted as news everywhere. The only problem with the Oled keyboard is that, after some research, the idea is not that technologically feasible at this time. The other problem with the Oled keyboard is that it is ‘paperware’ it does not actually exist, the pictures look very pretty and caused quite a bit of a fuss in the media, but that’s all they are: Pictures. A little while after I wrote that article I received an email from Ronald Brown the CEO of United Keys Inc., pertaining to their invention, which is essentially a Qwerty...

Intel Developing Ultra-Low Power 65 nm Process

Intel today announced it is developing an ultra-low profile 65 nm process that will enable production of very low power processors. The ultra-low power process will be Intel's second generation 65 nm process technology. The 65 nm process will provide obvious benefits over Intel?s current 90 nm manufacturing process like lower voltage requirements which equates to less heat and lower power consumption - the current buzz word of the moment.

One of the factors in decreasing chip power consumption, which is important to mobile and battery-operated devices, is improving the design of the transistor. Lost electricity leaking from these microscopic transistors, even when they are in their "off" state, is a problem that is a challenge for the entire industry
