Submission + - AMD 5x1 Eyefinity Multi-Display Demos, Tests (hothardware.com)

MojoKid writes: "Part of the allure of AMD's Eyefinity multi-display technology is its flexibility. There are many different screen configurations that can be supported. In addition, and this is what sets Eyefinity apart from legacy solutions, screens can also be combined in what AMD calls a Display Group and they’ll act as a single large surface. Video demos of top titles like Aliens versus Predator, Metro 2033 and Far Cry 2, show the impressive setup and how it's better for FPS gamers because the center of the SLS surface, with an odd numbered Eyefinity configuration, is a full monitor, centered on the gamer. The remaining four screens extend outward, offering an unparalleled field of view."

Submission + - SETI@Home is now the World's Fastest Supercomputer

jemecki writes: I was looking through the distributed computing statistics at BOINCstats today and I noticed that SETI@Home distributed computing grid just passed 280 TeraFLOPS in computing power. The reason this is so remarkable is that the fastest supercomputer in the world Blue Gene/L ALSO operates at a sustained 280 TeraFLOPS. So while governments are busy using their supercomputers to model bombs and nuclear weapons, the geeks have put together the world's fastest computer and they're using it to look for aliens. Awesome.
