Silverstone launches a revolutionary case, gaming mice

I just received word from Cheney Tseng of Silverstone fame about the launch of their new product line. Under the name Raven RV01, Silverstone launched a gaming mice and a case. Now, the mouse is a standard answer to heated competition on the market (more on that below), but case is… something completely different, as Monty Phyton would say. As we all know, heat flows upwards, while the cool air stays on the ground. In the world of computers, more and more components are heating up. This was not solved even with ATX motherboards placed upside down (BTX-style), so Silverstone decided to kick up a

UPDATED: Nvidia set to launch Tesla powered Personal Supercomputer

Today is the first day of SuperComputing 08 conference held in Austin, Texas. A lot of companies are bringing out the big guns for that one, and one of the companies that could have the largest one is Nvidia and its partners. Regardless of what you may think of CUDA, this API really took off in scientific community. Young enthusiasts started to build personal supercomputers, and Nvidia CUDA guys got the idea of creating a personal supercomputer when they saw FASTRA project from University of Antwerp. FASTRA is being used for computational topography, but many other universities are doing exactly the same. Fast forward to
