Laptops and desktops running Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3000 graphics just got a new feature this year called resizable BAR (base address registers). The feature arrived with the debut of the GeForce RTX 3060 , and through software drivers coming in March, it will work across Nvidia’s line of 3000 series GPUs on desktop and mobile . For GeForce gamers, the added support for resizable BAR means you’ll get a performance boost in select games without having to upgrade to a more expensive GPU , which is definitely good news. What is resizable BAR? Resizable BAR is a feature of the PCI Express interface that Nvidia chose to implement on its latest graphics cards, and it allows the processor and the graphics card to share access to resources for faster data transfer. In fact, Nvidia’s implementation isn’t unlike what rival AMD previously demonstrated with its Smart Access Memory, which allows its Ryzen processors to better and more efficiently communicate with its Radeon GPUs. … [Read more...] about Nvidia’s resizable BAR explained: What is it and how can you get a gaming boost?
As long as your compatible Android phone or tablet has plenty of empty storage, you can download Fortnite and start playing right away.

Xiaomi Mi 11 review: Specs to challenge the Galaxy S21, but not the battery Score Details “The Xiaomi Mi 11's screen, camera, and performance are enviable, but the battery disappoints and the software still needs polish.” Stunning screen Capable 108MP camera Very fast wired and wireless charging Poor battery life Software still needs polish No widespread availability (yet) MSRP $900.00 If you’ve looked at the Samsung Galaxy S21 and S21 Plus and shrugged, nonplussed by the decent-but-not-outstanding specifications, then the Xiaomi Mi 11 may be exactly what you’re looking for. It boasts the kind of specs and feature list that we expect from Samsung’s sensibly sized flagship S Series phones, and then charges less than even the simplest Galaxy S21 for the pleasure of owning the device. Xiaomi has long excelled in delivering strong on-paper specs coupled with a great value price, but then stumbled when it comes to usability and polish. It … [Read more...] about Xiaomi Mi 11 review: Specs to challenge the Galaxy S21, but not the battery

Spectacular footage of NASA’s Perseverance rover safely touching down on the surface of Mars last week showed close-up pictures of not only the rover but also the descent stage that lowered it. Cameras fixed to both vehicles captured the dramatic landing from multiple angles and in astonishing clarity, providing space fans with the highest-quality footage from NASA’s five rover landings to date. But as the spacecraft carrying Perseverance descended toward the Martian surface, the entire event was being tracked by another spacecraft more than 400 miles away. NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter launched from Earth in 2005 before reaching the red planet the following year. As the Perseverance spacecraft floated toward the planet with an open parachute (yes, the one that contained a hidden message ), the orbiter captured a remarkable image that shows the scale of the red planet against the car-sized rover. The orbiter used its HiRISE camera to grab the image, which NASA posted … [Read more...] about NASA’s Mars orbiter captures image of Perseverance’s parachute phase
