Google builds Native Client in the new version of Chrome browser

Monday, October 5, 2009

Google has released a new version of its browser Chrome numbered One of the main innovation was the appearance of a support technology Native Client, using the resources of the local computer to work with Web applications. Thus, the browser was able to accelerate work with Web applications written in languages, JavaScript, Flash, etc.

Technology Native Client (NaCl) is a proprietary development of Google, allowing for use of CPU resources on your computer to work with Web applications. Thus, the speed of these applications should be closer to the performance of traditional programs that are installed on your hard disk. This will improve the competitiveness of such web applications like Google Docs, as compared to Pack Microsoft Office, and, ultimately, strengthen the position of the project Google Chrome OS.

Most browsers now work with applications that have restrictions on the use of computer resources. However, Google managed to create a specialist development environment for writing web-based programs that directly access to the CPU architecture with x86 (for example, AMD Athlon or Intel Core). A special software tools and verification mechanism built into the Native Client, to minimize the risks associated with downloading executable applications from the network.

NVIDIA is preparing to introduce three cards on the chip Fermi

According to Fudzilla the resource with reference to its own sources, NVIDIA plans to introduce three video cards based on the new chip architecture GF100 Fermi. The first of these will be the flagship single-chip model, intended to replace the existing GeForce GTX 285. This card should receive 16 SM-blocks and the maximum clock frequency, and its performance exceeds the figures recently released ATI Radeon HD 5870. In this new video card NVIDIA will be more hot and expensive than the competing model, and exceed it in size.

In addition, the California company plans to provide more affordable graphics cards based on the number of stripped-down version of the chip GF100, which will be one or two SM-block less. This adapter will get 448 or 480 shader processors (the previous model number was 512) and lower operating frequencies, as well as a narrower memory interface (probably its width to 320 bits). This model should replace the video card GeForce GTX 275 and become a competitor to Radeon HD 5850.

Among other things, confirmed information about the development of two-chip NVIDIA card, which would be analogous to the current leader of the line GeForce GTX 295. This graphics card will hold more than six billion transistors, and its a TDP should not exceed 300 watts (the same figure one GF100 should be approximately 225 watts). Thus, NVIDIA engineers have to go to reduce the number of SM-blocks and clock speeds of the new dual-chip cards to meet the planned framework.

Release all those cards are expected later this year, and more widespread and available adapters on the architecture of Fermi to appear as early as 2010.

Introduction of the Athlon II X4 635 is expected in the fourth quarter

A month has passed since then, in the sale came a quad-core Athlon II X4 620, relating to the generation of AMD Propus. This chip has attracted attention due to poorer users of the operating frequency of 2.8 GHz, implying a good performance and low cost - less than 100 dollars. And now, AMD intends to continue the series of Athlon II X4 quad-core model 600 new Athlon II X4 635.

CPU Athlon II X4 635 is clocked at 2.9 GHz and has the same amount of second-level cache - 4 x 512 KB, and that younger model. The same is the indicator TDP - 95 watts. Like the Athlon II X4 620, the new chip is based on the core Propus and has no third level cache, and its release should take place in the fourth quarter.

In addition, AMD plans to appear on a production model of Athlon II X4 640 to 3 GHz and the same indicator for TDP of 95 watts, but its release will be held no earlier than the second quarter of 2010.

Microsoft Recite dies on December 31

In team blog Windows Mobile, it was reported that on Dec. 31, 2009 will be discontinued support for voice search applications Microsoft Recite. This application was announced in February this year and has become one of the most innovative Windows Mobile development team over the past few years.

Microsoft Recite The program allows owners of mobile devices on the Windows Mobile platform dictate short messages and then find the necessary notes using voice commands. However, it does not convert speech to text, like most analogies, and analyzes the available specimens, one of which is to preserve the note, and another - a voice search query, and finds similarities in these records.

With Microsoft Recite can be stored in the device several thousand voice notes, including messages on birthdays of friends and colleagues, reminders of important meetings and the names of new movies. This is so useful and necessary program still has the status of technology "preview" (Technology Preview), and, as it is now clear, will not receive even a public beta, and its users can not use it, since the new year. Because it is built on client-server principle and can not operate without appropriate support.

While Microsoft offers a method of transferring voice messages created on a computer, where they can persist for users of Microsoft Recite this is small consolation. It is hoped that the cessation of support of this application is only a temporary measure, and we still see it integrated into future versions of the operating system Windows Mobile.
