    4K makes footage from the ISS even more incredible http://www.redsharknews.com/technology/item/2681-4k-makes-footage-from-the-iss-even-more-incredible http://www.redsharknews.com/technology/item/2681-4k-makes-footage-from-the-iss-even-more-incredible The new Urthecast UHD camera on the ISS

    As you know, we do enjoy a bit of space-related eye-candy here at RedShark, but NASA (and others) have just raised the bar impressively with the introduction of 4K imagery.

        What's the difference between Consumer and Pro graphics cards? http://www.redsharknews.com/technology/item/318-what-s-the-difference-between-consumer-and-pro-graphics-cards http://www.redsharknews.com/technology/item/318-what-s-the-difference-between-consumer-and-pro-graphics-cards Pro or consumer GPUs?

        This article was first published two years ago so some of the information is old. But it's a question that keeps getting asked, and it's a great article - so we thought we'd publish it again. How do you choose between consumer and pro graphics cards? Low cost and high performance are compelling with the lower-end products, but compatability and support are better with the professional versions. Oren Payton explores this in depth

                  Part one of this examination of SSD technology touched on the differences between various types of NAND flash and the impact that SLC, MLC and TLC (3-cell MLC) NAND flash has on pricing. In part two, Guest Author, Leo Waldock, details the next step: coming up with some solid guidelines for selecting a suitable SSD for your workstation.
