Nvidia quadruples display resolution by stacking two cheap LCD panels on top of each other

Nvidia researchers have used a fantastically straightforward approach to quadruple the effective resolution and double the refresh rate of cheap, off-the-shelf LCD panels: Stacking them on top of each other. This technique, which Nvidia calls cascaded displays, could be key to developing cheap, ultra-high-resolution screens that are needed for consumer-oriented head-mounted displays like the Oculus […]

Western Digital’s HGST division creates new phase-change SSD that’s orders of magnitude faster than any NAND flash drive on the market

Over the past several years we’ve seen multiple companies tackle the problem of finding a new memory standard to replace NAND flash. Despite NAND’s superior performance characteristics, it faces long-term scaling issues. One of the technologies that’s bidding fair to take over the eventual performance crown is phase change memory — and Western Digital’s HGST […]
