nvidia, ati launch new GPUs at Computex

Filed under
Hardware

Majority of us knew that ATI and NVIDIA were going to stick with their 9-month product refresh timeframe and launch their next generation of GPUs sometime this year. Earlier speculations revealed that both companies would come out with new products towards the end of the year, but it looks like that won't be the case, after all.

Two industry insider sources revealed that both ATI and NVIDIA have plans to unveil their latest graphics solutions at Computex this year, which usually takes place around the beginning of June. Computex is the largest hardware tradeshow, globally.

Though we could not get other specific information like the pricing, availability and final specifications of the GPUs, the information does seem to be rather authentic when referring to previous product launches. Computex is usually the ideal place for hardware manufacturers to introduce their upcoming product lines, therefore, their plans doesn't seem too far off.

Remembering Tom Wallis, The System Administrator That Made The World Better

When I started a Linux Users Group (LUG) on campus, there was Tom – helping to arrange a place to meet, Internet access when we needed it, and gave his evenings to simply be present and a supporter.

Introducing the potential new Ubuntu Studio Council

Back in 2016, Set Hallström was elected as the new Team Lead for Ubuntu Studio, just in time for the 16.04 Xenial Long Term Support (LTS) release. It was intended that Ubuntu Studio would be able to utilise Set’s leadership skills at least up until the next LTS release in April 2018. Unfortunately, as happens occasionally in the world of volunteer work, Set’s personal circumstances changed and he is no longer able to devote as much time to Ubuntu Studio as he would like. Therefore, an IRC meeting was held between interested Ubuntu Studio contributors on 21st May 2017 to agree on how to fill the void. We decided to follow the lead of Xubuntu and create a Council to take care of Ubuntu Studio, rather than continuing to place the burden of leadership on the shoulder of one particular person. Unfortunately, although the result was an agreement to form the first Ubuntu Studio Council from the meeting participants, we all got busy and the council was never set up. Read more
