nVidia's Blazing Graphics Card and HTML5 on PCWorld Podcast 71
This week on the PCWorld Podcast, editors Tim Moynihan, Jason Cross, Nick Mediati, and Nate Ralph mark the last day of a non-iPad world by discussing nVidia's first Fermi architecture graphics card and the possibilities for HTML5.
Jason Cross and Nate Ralph have been testing the nVidia GeForce GTX 480 DirectX 11 graphics card, and it's blazing in more ways than one. Learn why they think the single-GPU graphics card is oddly late to the game, how it fared in our round of synthetic testing, and whether they think serious gamers should run out and buy one or hold their horses.
With all the Apple vs. Flash sparring, the iPad-maker is placing a lot of pressure on HTML5. The next-generation Web markup language is being touted for its video, multimedia, and offline storage capabilities, and if anything can spur widespread HTML5 development, it's a shiny new Apple toy to run it on. Nick Mediati discusses the potential and limitations of HTML5, and the mini format war taking shape in this arena.
