Quad SLI to launch in March

February 25, 2006

According to TGDaily, Nvidia is planning to launch it’s 512MB dual-core Geforce 7900GTX on March 22nd. Running two 7900GTXs would therefore be a quad SLI setup¬†¬† This proves how far ATI is behind Nvidia in multi-GPU technology – ATI has only just recently got a decent two-GPU solution out on the market, and Nvidia is already releasing quad SLI.

Retail machines built with the new cards in SLI will have 850 to 1000-watt power supplies. This is actually most power than some residential electrical setups can provide.

From Scott Feschuk’s blog:

Top 10 Ways to Ensure We Win Gold in 2010

10. I don’t know — maybe pick a few guys who can skate faster than Eeyore?

9. Instead of a loonie at centre ice, bury that Ovechkin fellow.

8. Each player on the roster gets a complimentary Chinese grandfather and double-double from Tim’s.

7. Here’s a good rule of thumb: the combined age of any given line should never exceed infinity.

6. No Leafs coaches (psst, maybe you haven’t noticed but they’re a little bit jinxed!).

5. Does Lebron James play hockey? Does he want to be Canadian?

4. Let’s just say that a little Motorhead might get played outside the Russian dorm between 1 and 5 a.m. on the morning of the medal round.

3. Enlist Canada’s leading scientists to build a machine capable of transforming each sycophantic remark uttered by Ron MacLean into a defenceman who can actually move the puck.

2. Convince the sport’s governing body to replace the mesh inside each net with a sign that reads: “The puck goes in here! Remember?!”

And the No. 1 way to ensure we win gold in 2010:
Cassie Campbell, a bushy black moustache and a little “look the other way” money for the kind folks at the IOC.

QFT.

The editor of the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten, which commissioned and published the infamous Mohamed cartoons, has written an editoral explaining his decision.

From /.

There once was a man from Nantucket,
Who saw another BSOD and said fuck it,
He couldn’t get any sex,
So he installed OS X,
With love that requires a mop and bucket.

The second beta of Microsoft’s antispyware product, now branded ‘Windows Defender’ (previously Microsoft AntiSpyware) is now available. It features a completely new UI design, though I can’t say that I like it much. It looks rather like IE7 Beta 2, and that’s not a compliment. However, it’s antispyware abilities are first-class, even though it’s still in beta. Additionally, this release is available for Windows 2000, which was not previously supported (that I know of).
