This graphics core incorporates several new features that allow it to improve energy efficiency by 40 percent - essentially giving longer battery life for the same performance or improving performance when you really need it," Kolar wrote.

When it comes to building and configuring Core M, Intel likes to refer to their efforts as the “Fanless Challenge,” reflecting the fact that their biggest goal with Core M is to comfortably get the processor in to 10” tablets under 10mm in thickness that are passively cooled.

NVIDIA Announces a Fallout 4 Mod

by Scott Michaud |
It is designed to show off GameWorks technologies, such as volumetric lighting and HBAO+, more heavily than Bethesda did with the base game.
If you're wondering why NVIDIA has a game development studio, they are mostly responsible for bringing content from the PC to their Shield devices, such as Half-Life 2 and Portal.

Who Decided to Call a Lightweight API "Metal"?

by Scott Michaud |
The latter model works better in multi-core environments, and it aligns with GPU compute APIs, but the former is easier to port OpenGL and DirectX 11 applications to.
Even though OpenGL on Mac OSX is not considered to be on par with its Linux counterparts, which is probably due to the driver situation until recently, it pulls ahead of Metal in many situations.

What Exactly Is a Draw Call (and What Can It Do)?

by Scott Michaud |
When this happens, developers can justify solving their problems with smaller, more naive tasks.
They have the potential to simplify driver and game development, which the PC genuinely needs.

EVGA, K|NGP|N and TiN break a few records with GTX 980

by Slobodan Simic |
We already knew that the GM204 Maxwell-based Geforce GTX 980 and the Geforce GTX 970 will have a decent overclocking potential but running the GPU at 2050MHz, or breaking the 9000-point barier in 3DMark Fire Strike Extreme benchmark was definitely not something that we have expected.
“There is a ton of headroom on the GPU and memory clocks, and performance scaling is some of the highest I have ever seen.
