Nvidia GeForce GTX 1180’s release date may have just leaked

Nvidia GeForce GTX 1180’s release date may have just leaked
PC gamers, crypto miners and other GPU enthusiasts have been waiting over two years for the company’s next big graphics card — which is pretty unusual in this space. And even so, Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang recently told reporters the cards were still “a long time” away. But a couple of new leaks suggest we might see the GeForce GTX 11 series far sooner than that — likely this fall, and perhaps even this August. We’re eager to see if Nvidia’s CEO winds up eating his words…

Hackers took over the Gentoo Linux GitHub repository

Hackers took over the Gentoo Linux GitHub repository
Popular Linux distribution Gentoo has been “totally pwned” according to researchers at Sophos, and none of the current code can be trusted. The team immediately posted an update and noted that none of the real code has been compromised. However, they have pulled the GitHub repository until they can upload a fresh copy of the unadulterated code…

HPC Under the Covers: Linpack, Exascale & the Top500

HPC Under the Covers: Linpack, Exascale & the Top500
HPCers can get painted as a monolithic bunch by outsiders, but internecine disagreements abound over the HPCest of HPC jargon, as was evident at ISC this week. Ask four HPC leaders about Linpack’s relevance, get four distinct answers — and that’s just what happened at the Monday Top500 panel. During the panel, moderator Horst Simon (Top500 co-author and deputy lab director of LLNL) asked panelists Yutong Lu, Steve Conway, Thomas Schulthess and Steve Scott about the limitations surrounding Linpack and what needs to be changed at the Top500…

The Universe Is Really Greasy, And We Had No Idea

The Universe Is Really Greasy, And We Had No Idea
If we’re going to head out into interstellar space one day, we might want to go equipped with some heavy-duty degreaser. New research has found that the vast intervals of space aren’t always filled with dry dust, but often contain a mist of greasy molecules. And there’s a lot of space grease out there. The Milky Way galaxy alone holds some 10 billion trillion trillion tonnes of cosmic butter. Although, it’s actually more like a greasy sort of soot, and not at all edible…

Complex organics bubble from the depths of ocean-world Enceladus
Data from the international Cassini spacecraft have revealed complex organic molecules originating from Saturn’s icy moon Enceladus, strengthening the idea that this ocean-world hosts conditions suitable for life. Very little was known about Enceladus prior to 2005 – the year when Cassini first flew close. Since then, it has become a continuous source of surprises, with secrets still being revealed even now, after the mission end…

A Sea Change Coming For Water Cooling In Datacenters

A Sea Change Coming For Water Cooling In Datacenters
Back in the late 1970s and early 1980s, big iron in datacenters had to have water cooling, which was a pain in the neck in terms of the system and facilities engineering. And it was a big deal – and a big competitive threat – when former IBM System/360 architect Gene Amdahl – you know, the guy with the law named after him – left to start his own mainframe company and created a line of compatible mainframes that were strictly air cooled. It meant companies did not have to put in raised flooring in the datacenter to pipe water directly to the compute complexes to keep them from overheating…
