Strong ARM: For years, the ARM processor family has been one of the best selling processors in the world, outselling even the mighty x86 by orders of magnitude. Can it now take on the desktop?

Most of us despair when we see technology and science presented to a non-technical audience on TV. It's not easy to explain stuff in the short time available, but often it's over-simplified to the point of being nonsensical. So how does a national UK broadcaster deal with the topic of 4K?

Ray Tracing has always produced the most spectacular results of all CGI techniques. We've all seen those images of chrome balls on chess-boards, with every reflection - even between multiple balls - faithfully rendered. And "rendered" is the important word here, because, until now, real-time ray tracing on anything other than a supercomputer has been impossible.

An Nvidia hardware launch is always a reason to get excited, not least when it is their professional GPUs that are being launched. These cards – the Quadro family, only appear once in every two years or so, so when they do, it tends to present us with a significant jump forward, both in terms of features and performance.
