level of interest just fell off the table and died.
an iphone/ipad app? what the hell for?
I would find a use for it, for people with mATX or mITX (like me), not having to have a USB adapter is a big bonus.
Edit: Whoops, never mind. Not what I thought it was.
I'm under the impression that with out it, "WHDI" isn't possible...
I could be wrong, seems like that's what the article was talking about.
Oh, I really thought it would be something like that dual GF100 I linked earlier... (is it still going to be made? )
Well, it's nice that you're coming up with new innovative stuff.
"WHDI-fook" thought of this brilliant idea?
Great. Will need to invest in some rather long controller cables then. ROFL
Will need to keep running into another room to pause the video, or deal with menu-selection. Oh man, that menu will be a nightmare. Player in one room, infra remote in same room, TV in another... can't see what you're doing...
Those issues might be solved with WHDI input devices (if they exist)
Those wacky situations could be annoying, but it sounds more like lack of fore sight on the users end.
Aside from all of that, since when is having fewer cables a bad thing?
Public attention, for a piece of well..........
mini-pcie runs at pci-e x1, so you would ended up running x15 or something
I am pretty sure that card wont make it to the market.
This because the innovations of galaxy are a bit of too imaginative
making them not functional or not that great
Think about it:
They have already made physx chips inside the pcb of the card.
The only thing that makes me think to be putted inside that x1 is a sound card
This because instead of being used by a south bridge, which is slow,
it will pass from the x1 to x16 and than to northbridge, making less usage from southbridge
This idea is really stupid because the people who made mobos why didn't they connect
the sound card to the northbridge, but putted it in southbridge?
ABSOLUTELY STUPID GALAXY!!!! BRAVO!!!
Any of your innovations did make it to the market??? (except the removable fan of graphic card)
well the 1x slot is a good idea, they just need to decide on what to PUT there.
useful things? HDTV tuner/capture card would be nice.
LOL @ rage comment.
Also, did it ever came up to you that the fact that this would carry a sound card would be a good idea?
I don't know if you are aware, but some people actually buy discrete sound cards for better audio quality (for numerous reasons), instead of relying on the onboard that might not be so good. So with this idea, those users could add the card onto the GPU slot and be able to save another slot (and space) for another card, possibly a GPU for SLI (marketing trick).
Useless comment is useless.
When i saw your quote i asked myself if i wrote the things in bold
After reading it i want to comment smth
I mentioned the sound card because it is the most "HEAVY" thing that slot would add
and it can make more space for the bridge. This is an idea, just like galaxy with the slot
Not only people buy it for better audio quality, but i know that they don't want it integrated
because it will make the bridge "heavier" and after reading a lot of reviews about sound cards
it turned up that the card itself used cpu if it was integrated. So putting it in that slot
would make no use at all for the cpu, more space and it can be utilized like a gpu+spu (my idea)
to make programs of music which virtualize the beeps of sounds into heavy graphical virtualizations (like winamp, but much more complex) and don't tell me what i said is not a unique idea!
Ah, a more elaborate comment at last.
I wouldn't see it as the device that would be the most heavy (assuming you're talking about bandwidth), but one of the heavier ones. Considering what you've said (the GPU+SPU in one slot), that would be a nice feature. But by music programs turning sound bits into visualizations is what most (if not all) media players do and, if you want something more advanced, try AudioSurf.
The package looks really cool
It's not for adding a sound card or 2nd GPU to the card, it's the first WHDI integrated Graphics Card on the market.
See our press release here:
I can assure you you will see reviews on this soon (one for Techpowerup may be? I need to contact our Europe representatives...)
And for the Dual Fermi and PhysX stuffs, I could not comment much on why we cancelled our product, all I can say is our design is ready, our PCB is ready, even our cooling solution is ready. However "someone" is stopping us from making it to the market.....
We have found a way to solve this issue, but pls let me keep this little secret for a while
at a guess, you're throwing USB over the same signal, so players can hook up a USB hub and connect the controlers/mouse/keyboard/remove receiver to the receiver on the TV side. that could work well.
