    SLI

    Published at 10:47   Category Tech  

    Some SLI infos :

    - SLI allows you to couple multiple 3d cards to improve performances.
    - The Inquirer states a new motherboard is out with 4 SLI capability is out, that means a possibility of 8 screens for one computer !! (with 1 card for 2 screens)
    - We learn on the OSG Mailing list that :

     "Can you use more than two graphics cards with SLI? 
     NVIDIA currently supports only dual GPU scaling at this time, however, SLI Technology is not limited to using only 2 GPUs."

    What is Sparkle ?

    Published at 11:20   Category Tech  

    From this article at ArsTechnica :

    Sparkle has been generating hype for almost two years now and the entire time it was considered to be a Flash-like product. (..)
    Currently, when a designer designs a UI for an application they have to do it in a mock-up and then hand it off to the developer to implement in the software. (..)
    Sparkle allows a designer to design the actual application (..) and it creates a C# project ready for the developer to use.

    How did Sparkle become known as a “Flash Killer” if it is simply a form designer? The obvious answer is that the form designer is only one aspect to Sparkle. 3D has always been a rather daunting environment for designers due to the greater complexity. Sparkle removes the additional complexity by allowing designers to work with models in a 3D environment without worrying about the z-axis. It also has the ability to change a 2D object into a 3D object to allow for depth and rotation.

    Hum..
    I wonder how a 3d environment without worrying about the z-axis is still a 3d environment..
    Oh well =)

    Light stopped !

    Published at 12:32   Category Tech  

    Wow…
    From this article at wikinews :

    Light stopped for over a second, breaking record

    Light has been stopped in its tracks for more than one second, a thousand times longer than the previous record.

    Researchers at the Australian National University used a technique called electromagnetically induced transparency, in which a beam of laser light puts the atoms in a solid sample into a state in which a signal light pulse can be trapped.”
