DIGITAL EXPERIENCE (cont'd)
Wait, is that a Nvidia card running a tessellated DX11 benchmark....?
That's right, this engineering sample of the GF100 Fermi was running in a Maingear created system. While discussing the product is was mentioned that Nvidia's Q1 release will be a certain percentage faster than the competitor's alternative. No firm numbers or what ATI model they were related to was not given but it looks like the ATI DX11 reign as the sole DX11 option will soon be over.
CLICKFREE AUTOMATIC BACKUP
There were a lot of booths displaying a lot of exciting new technology at the Digital Experience event, but the products from a company called ClickFree really stood out. They are releasing a line of storage units that back up all the important files on your computer with one touch of a button. No software to install and no complicated setup required. A demo of one of the units in action looked very promising – it is easy enough that a novice computer user can back up their entire computer without a hassle, and at the same time it can be tweaked enough to keep enthusiasts happy. Tweaknews will be reviewing a sample of this product in the near future.
Everyone who is an audiophile knows the Sennheiser brand. What's new this year was their affiliation with Adidas to create a sports earbud headphone which sounds as good as its build quality. With a kevlar wear resistent cable and washable speakers, this all-weather earbud headset is made for the user who wants a product to last a long time in the gym and while working out. I know personally I go through a headset every six to eight months due to wear and tear and it looks like someone has finally seen that their is a niche market for a tough set of headphones.
