Sun Microsystems and NVIDIA are working together to deliver higher performance from Sun Java workstations.
Each workstation will ship with NVIDIA Quadro® graphics technology. Sun Microsystems says that means they'll be delivering big 2D and 3D performance improvements, including higher bus bandwidth, increased memory bandwidth, improved rendering speeds, and the ability to deploy data sets up to 16 Gbytes across several operating systems.
It's another step to impact the workstation market, says NVIDIA executive vice president Jeff Fisher.
In other news, Sun has supplied the National Center for Microscopy and Imaging Research and the San Diego Supercomputer Center Java workstations and Quadro FX graphics. Scientists will use the hardware in their studies of biological structures.
One way to keep a Formula One racing team moving at breakneck speed in the pit and at the test facility is to bring CAD drawings of the racing vehicle’s parts down to the test facility and even out to the track.
Most of us would just as soon step on a cockroach rather than study it, but that’s just what researchers at UC Berkeley did in the pursuit of building small, nimble robots suitable for disaster-recovery and search-and-rescue missions.
Design engineers need to prepare for a future in which their electronic products will use not just one or two, but possibly many user interfaces that involve touch, vision, gestures, and even eye movements.
