CES 2014: NVIDIA Shows Off Fifth Generation Tegra K1 Chip with 192 Cores
NVIDIA announced its fifth generation Tegra K1 chip, which has 192 CUDA cores and is meant to bridge the gap
between Kepler-based desktop cards and the mobile-based Tegra chips. That means one small chip that
packs a lot of punch.
Wearable computing hogged the spotlight at last week's CES 2014.
According to Domingo Guerra, president and cofounder of Appthority, a San Francisco-based mobile app risk
management service, the need for wearable and other mobile devices to interact and share data creates a
new class of security and privacy risks.
iBUYPOWER Announces Cryptocurrency Mining Rigs for Casual Fans
While any hardcore cryptocurrency miner these days will use application-specific integrated circuits
(ASICs) to chug through the proof-of-work calculations need to ”discove“ blocks of bitcoins, dogecoins,
litecoins, etc. (or in a pinch use field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) flashed with similar purpose-built
hardware), there's still plenty of casual miners who aren't necessarily looking to get rich quick and
are just looking to have a bit of fun.
Dogecoins and Its IBM Developer Ride Meme to $130M+ Fortune
Bitcoin came along unnoticed to most in 2009. By contrast, these newcomers are off the ground and running.
Bitcoin uses proof-of-work on SHA-256 hashes to seed the market with coins (a maximum of 21M BTC will be produced).
Other rivals adopt similar approaches with small twists.
A Guide to Bitcoin Mining: Why Someone Bought a $1,500 Bitcoin Miner on eBay for $20,600
With the price of bitcoins skyrocketing, mining is suddenly big business, so enticingly big that one wannabe
miner was willing to pay a 1,333 percent premium to get his (or her) foot in the door of this wildly
lucrative bitcoin bonanza. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the bitcoin gold rush.
Embedded Processor Selection Using FPGA-based Profiling Fadi Obeidat* and Robert H. Klenke**
* Intel Corporation, Austin, TX, USA
** Virginia Commonwealth University, Virginia, USA
In embedded systems, modeling the performance of off-the-shelf processors is very important to
enable the designer to estimate the capability of each candidate processor against the target
application. Considering the large number of available embedded processors, the need has increased
for building an infrastructure by which it is possible to estimate the performance of a given
application on a certain processor with a minimum of time and resources. This paper presents
the use a Xilinx MicroBlaze softcore processor ...
