Morning all. It's Labor Day here in the U.S., and I knew going in that news would be slow today. Still, I didn't expect it to be this dismal. There's very little new going on, save for a few interesting tidbits that Ronald's already linked in the 'bread.
There is some rumor-mongering, at least, going on here, where reports of the second-coming of NVIDIA's SoundStorm have taken on traditional apocalytic forms, despite Creative's recent introduction of a 51-million-transistor audio chip. Does it get any better than 51 million transistors dedicated to audio in 2005? The continued nostalgia and enthusiasm for the once and future SoundStorm baffles me. No doubt NVIDIA is working on high-def audio for its chipsets, but hardware audio processing acceleration in the league of the X-Fi seems like a pipe dream at this point.
Anyhow, most of the "news" out there today seems about in that league. Feel free to post your own news links in the comments. Perhaps you guys can find some better stuff.
