BIOS death Nears, UEFI is the Future

BIOS death Nears, UEFI is the Future

BIOS has been around since the invention of early PCs. It has been responsible for doing a routine check on the system hardware during boot, and then handover the OS… Read more »

 

UEFI is a continuation of Intel's original EFI project, which was designed to replace the BIOS with a user-friendly point-and-click interface, as well as addressing many other troublesome areas of the PC's legacy. 

MSI introduced Click BIOS on a few motherboards based on Intel's P45 chipsets.

The move to UEFI is now much more important because of its implications for storage coz as Seagate said, UEFI system would be an essential requirement in order for a PC to boot from a drive larger than 2TB.

This is how the MSI UEFI ClickBIOS from 2008 looks like:

In the Desktop world, AMD has long lived with the lead exploiting DirectX11 in their ATI HD 5970 graphics monster. Nvidia had previously showcased that they are all set to take the lead over there.

Today, Nvidia announced new Mobile GPU GeforceGTX 480M - The Fastest Graphics on Laptops/Mobile.

the new graphics for mobile is a re-spin of its extravagantly overpowered Fermi desktop counter-parts. The chip, scheduled for release mid-next month, will bring whooping 352 CUDA cores and a 256-bit memory interface to up to 2GB of GDDR5 RAM.

In contrast with Nvidia's current top of the line: 360M, this is a huge step ahead. However, to save on battery juice, the graphics processor speed is nearly halved from the desktop GTX 480, @ 850MHz, the RAM runs on 1,200MHz, and the graphics run at 425MHz. Normally, good GPUs are meant to be >500Mhz.

The Nvidia 480M has great tessellation performance of 897 gigaflops, stepping more than double from Nvidia 360M having only 470 gigaflops.

Nvidia 480M Benchmark

Its hard to give you an idea of the performance at this time, but as per the estimates, it should run games like Just Cause 2 in 1920x1080 Medium-High detail and anti-aliasing OFF around 55-65FPS.

Nvidia 480M GTX Specs

Here are the detailed specs:
