AMD Releases Two New HD4800 Series 40nm Mobile GPUs

Advanced clock gating, which exist in three modes, and GPU activity monitor extend the power saving features by the ability to utilize a separate, built-in graphics processor of much lower power consumption and processing ability. Switching between the integrated graphics processor and ATI Radeon HD can be done without rebooting but is not initiated automatically.The GDDR3 would target mainstream applications, while the GDDR5 would target the high end due to its increase in memory bandwidth from the standard GDDR3 and 64 GB/s. Memory bandwidth is somewhat crippled as compared to the chip’s potential. This is due to a 128 bit bus which is down from 256 in Mobility 4800-series; however faster core clock slightly compensates for this while providing additional power savings.There are several 40nm ATI Mobility Radeon HD win updates for the 4860 and 4830 that include the ASUS N81Vp, N51Tp and W90. MSI’s GT727 will upgrade from 4850 and Toshiba’s Satellite 300 upgrade 4650. AMD will be announcing additional partners at the CeBIT.© 2009 PhysOrg.comlast_img read more

Keeping behrupiya alive

first_imgAs the Capital gets into the festive mood, Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts (IGNCA), New Delhi, organised the ‘National Behrupiya Festival’ from October 5-7.The behrupiya festival takes place every year in different locations – Ahmedabad, Udaipur, Jaipur, Kumbh, Muzaffarnagar, and others, but this was the first time it happened in Delhi on a national level.Member Secretary of IGNCA, Dr Sadchittand Joshi told Millennium Post during an interation, “This was not just an entertainment based festival. It added educational and documentation parts too which is very important. A film and monograph was also produced during the event to provide visibility to this art form and help the researchers as well as the general public to know about the art form.” Also Read – Add new books to your shelfThe festival witnessed 70 behrupiya artists from different states of the country, who showcased their talent – individually, in pairs and in groups. Majority of the artists present at the festival came from a family of behrupiyas, and were trying to take forward the family tradition.”I was 15 when I entered this field, I have seen my father, grandfather executing this art very well. And as I come from a very backward class in a very small village, I did not have many employment options. Therefore, this art form became my source of income,” said one artist present there. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveThere was another artist who had come from a very small village of Bengal. He told that the village was so small and unexplored that people living in the neighbourhood even don’t know about it. “Our village is known by the name of our art – ‘Behrupiyo ka gaon’, if you ask them about this village, they would not know its name but they would know that all the behrupiya artists live there,” he said.Though it was the first time Behrupiya festival took place in Delhi, according to the artists, Delhi has been their best experience. They said that they got appreciation, acceptance, and love from this place. The main objective of the artists and the organisers was to revive the very old and extinct art of India, giving people authentic information about this art (especially in the younger generation), to increase the respect of people associated with this art.Talking about the festival, the organiser of Behrupiya festival Vilas Janve – a renowned theatre artist and the brain behind this festival, said: “I have organised Behrupiya festival earlier in Udaipur, but I thought that organising a National level festival in the Capital would be a great help for the artists who wish to showcase their talents. Also, this will help us to spread the awareness about the art form.”Vilas has been dealing with Behrupiya artists for various festivals like Shilpgram Utsav, Udaipur, Parampara Festival, Mumbai, Vasant Utsav at Gandhi Nagar and Folk festivals at Goa. “I have special love for this art and I not only want to preserve this art but also want people to have respect for it, to understand it,” he stated.Describing the pitiful state of behrupiya art in the country, he said, “We also went to schools to interact with children in more depth. I was taken aback with the fact that many school teachers were also not aware of this art form before we told them.”last_img read more

Why Corporate Collaboration Tools are Fundamentally Flawed

first_img 5 min read February 13, 2017 Listen Now Hear from business owners and CEOs who went through a crippling business problem and came out the other side bigger and stronger. Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. Problem Solvers with Jason Feifer Facebook Workplace and other popular corporate collaboration tools, such as Yammer, Slack, Skype, WhatsApp and Salesforce Chatter, all promise a kind of magic bullet for today’s geographically diverse workplace. And, if the goal is easier communication and a more modern channel for information sharing, then these tools can achieve some measure of success.Where they miss the point, however, is in their ability to derive meaningful insights from the interactions that take place between and among employees.Related: Collaboration Tools of the Most Productive Remote Teams A recent article in CIO featured efforts by skincare company Rodan & Fields to improve internal collaboration by using Facebook Workplace. The article touted the benefit of consolidating many software platforms down to one, and creating a “commonplace and common model for people to interact.”Collaboration has become something of a buzzword lately due to an abundance of so many new collaborative technologies hitting the market. And the right collaboration tools will increase productivity by instilling positive changes in how people work and by fundamentally changing the corporate culture.But companies have to make more than halfhearted attempts at collaboration: Instead, they’re realizing only half of the value of collaboration by creating better ways to discuss ideas, but putting fewer of them in place. The great irony is that those companies that view collaboration as synonymous with IM or chat features are not properly equipping their workforces. They also risk creating a culture of employees who collaborate more without feeling more connected.Instead, the goal should be to develop new ideas that are not only hashed out, but actually heard by senior management and implemented. To be effective, collaboration platforms require a real evolution in the overall workplace culture. Management should move beyond static business silos to support the healthy sharing of new ideas across diverse project groups.Collaboration should increase workforce unity.People willingly choose to use new systems when they can achieve actual benefits from them. On the other hand, people forced to collaborate against their will often resist the process until it becomes counterproductive. For this reason, the most effective organizations measure the success of new collaboration tools based on staff adoption.Business collaboration software systems have come a long way over the past decade. The original classic collaboration programs, Lotus Notes and Microsoft Sharepoint, gave way to a new generation of tools that allow dispersed colleagues to conduct business around the clock and around the world.Popular new tools such as Slack, Hipchat and Microsoft Teams have taken a chat-based approach to collaboration. Enterprise systems, including Microsoft Yammer, Salesforce Chatter and Jive, then created Facebook-like social media platforms for business, before Facebook itself introduced its own workplace tool.Related: Email Is Not the Best Solution for Collaboration Other collaboration platforms such as Dropbox, Box.com and Google Docs allow remote teams to share the editing of online documents and files.The most effective platforms allow workgroups to propose creative project solutions and vote on shared priorities. Crowd-solving can increase the “democratization of strategy” through team brainstorming, business author Bill Donius wrote in the Huffington Post. He explained that this process “allows a team to quickly identify powerful ideas and potential strategic solutions.” In addition, he said, participants will feel more invested in the outcomes because they helped form the strategies.All these new tools remain a means to the ultimate end, which is bringing co-workers together. Of course, collaboration is not a one-off project — it requires continuous adaptation to incorporate new tools and strategies over time.Re-think workplace collaboration.Nurturing collaboration requires a positive setting that encourages people to brainstorm ideas and question decisions in a non-judgmental atmosphere. Everyone should recognize that distinct personalities take different approaches to problem-solving, so leaders should encourage colleagues to respect and encourage one another despite their differences.To keep everyone on the same page, team members should have a regularly scheduled meeting format to share their plans for daily and weekly tasks. Likewise, all successful project outcomes should be communicated to the rest of the group to improve staff morale and promote a “can do” attitude.It also makes sense for managers to carefully examine how employees pool company resources, form alliances and achieve common objectives, according to Future Think CEO Lisa Bodell, writing in PWC Strategy+Business. Bodell suggested designating some team leader to serve as a connector who can bridge divisional silos and coordinate activities among various work groups.Another strategy for collaboration involves creating peer-to-peer mentorships that pair people from different business units to share their thinking about new ideas and resources. Such mentoring programs should include written guidelines and deadlines to ensure successful results.Physical office spaces provide yet another way for bringing people together. Many companies prefer open floor plans to spark spontaneous conversations. Roughly 70 percent of all U.S. offices now feature open workspaces, according to data from the International Management Facility Association.Yet, even offices with walls, cubicles and partitions can unite colleagues through common areas and break-rooms that include comfortable seating and spaces for meals or conversations. Sometimes, locating people from different departments within the same office space stimulates fresh thinking and enhances collaboration.Related: Facebook’s WhatsApp Adds Secure Video Calling Amid Privacy Concerns Collaborative efforts can enable a business to become much more dynamic by integrating siloed work processes and broadening market opportunities. In this way, truly collaborative workers will achieve new synergies that spark innovations and allow their companies to thrive.last_img read more
