Details on the next generation Tegra 4 processor, codenamed "Wayne", leak

NVIDIA has done pretty well on the mobile market with its Tegra 3 processor, and it should be of no surprise to anyone that NVIDIA has been working on the next generation Tegra processor. The company even provided some rough details early last year.
 
However, some detailed information on the next-generation 28nm Tegra 4 leaked today, and it promises six times the power of Tegra 3. Tegra 4 appears to be, according to a leaked slide, a 4+1 quad-core design similar to that of the current Tegra 3. The Cortex-A15-based Tegra 4 has 72 graphics cores and supports dual channel memory. Tegra 4 will also support resolutions of 2560 x 1440 for encode and decode and promises very low power consumption.

Other supported features will include the USB 3.0, making this the first NVIDIA chipset to support the new and faster USB standard.

With CES 2013 kicking off in mere weeks, we should have significantly more details coming in the not-too-distant future.

Many businesses use Software that is often decades old.
It still works and fits the needs of the customer.

I would have to point you to what I said.

This also doesn't include businesses that might have custom software, but hopefully they are starting to move to a web browser based software.
The nice thing about this decades old software is that when it breaks everyone who knows how to fix it is dead.

As a corporate support tech (or at least I used to be one, but I've drifted into an admin role lately) I really, really wish some companies and corporate executives would get their heads out of their behinds and get rid of some of this horrible old software. Some companies have even gone to this stupid idea of keeping their old mainframe app and database and set up a web interface for it. Talk about hard to support! It's horribly inefficient, too.

Moving to a new database system with a proper modern interface would save tons of time, both on the user end and on the support end, and cost far less in the long run than the cost to migrate.

Then, there are a huge number of corporate executives who just got their jobs because of daddy and are completely incompetent. I guess we shouldn't expect much out of those types other than just more of the same stupidity.

No Kidding!

Two weeks ago we finally unplugged our Novel 4.1 server that is running a Pentium II. No kidding. It's still turned on just in case we have to have it. We figured if we turned it off it wouldn't ever turn back on again.

I worked a contract 6 years ago where I had to convert a small gov. agency from Novel/Groupwise to Windows/Exchange. They still had a business critical Novel 3.11 server running on Pentium Pro 166mhz.

One thing is for sure. They don't make them like they used to.

You wouldn't be talking about S3 Publishing would you?

next year windows server 2003 and sql server 2003 will be a decade old. considering MS' new licensing strategy, a lot of folks will stay on those "ancient" platforms for another 4-5 years.

A few years ago, I was tasked with fixing some malfunctioning legacy equipment. I was given two weeks to get it running. The previous crews had 90 days each to try and fix it. Having never seen this type of system outside of a museum before, I even talked to retirees turned GS/contractors from my career field for help. I found one, and his suggestion was to pick it up about three feet off the floor and drop it! It started working for a little bit. I ended up using foam, gum, cardboard and duct tape to brace a daughterboard who's slot was so worn out that the card would vibrate out if left unsecured. Apparently dropping it reseated all of the cards for a little bit. lol

Finding documentation and/or getting the manuals for old systems can be a pita. Finding SME's for legacy systems is also a pain. A lot of them are sought after for high paying jobs after they leave service bc being able to maintain these old systems is good government contract money for companies.
