03.22.2014 - AMD and Leap Computing Look To The Sky for Cloud Gaming at GDC 2014



View AMD related news.
AMD and Leap Computing took to the sky at the Game Developers Conference (GDC) 2014 (Booth# 1024) in San Francisco, showcasing the evolution of cloud gaming.

 AMD Radeon™ Sky cloud gaming cards and AMD RapidFire technology enable Leap Computing to deliver a fully-realized, turnkey cloud solution for uncompromising performance on games like Battlefield 4, Dirt 3 and Tomb Raider. As a bonus, it’s also a cost-effective option for video game developers.

 

 

 While at the show I presented a session entitled “RapidFire: The Easy Route To Low Latency Cloud Gaming Solutions”. This was an opportunity for attendees to learn more about how AMD's RapidFire SDK simplifies the delivery of multi-game streaming from a single GPU while working to minimize latency to ensure one of the best cloud gaming experiences.

 At the AMD exhibit, the AMD RapidFire and Leap Computing streaming gameplay demonstration generated a great deal of interest and inquiries by showcasing the next major step in cloud gaming that allowed attendees to play popular titles via streamed content on laptops.photo2.JPG.jpg

 “Although these technologies have existed for the past several years, the play experience has been too resource-heavy to actually make cloud deployment possible, until now,” said Alexander Nataros, chief executive officer at Leap Computing. “The performance and precision of the AMD Radeon Sky cloud gaming GPUs have been instrumental in optimizing hardware for our service. AMD has positioned itself as an industry leader in the emerging cloud graphics space through both the AMD RapidFire technology API and its Direct Output Post Processing (D.O.P.P.) support. With these tools, Leap Computing has been able to provide a graphically intense, low-latency environment that would not have been otherwise possible.”

 AMD Radeon™ Sky Series products support up to six HD game streams at once(1). Furthermore, service providers can maximize existing infrastructure and resources to support even more simultaneous streams, from casual games up to the most demanding AAA titles. AMD Radeon Sky Series products are designed to support a wide range of servers and systems.

 Additionally, AMD RapidFire technology enables cloud gaming partners to benefit from an open API, simplifying manipulation of key hardware controls to provide HD visual quality, minimal latency and optimal network bandwidth, resulting in a compelling and responsive experience on virtually any device. In line with AMD’s commitment to industry standard APIs, like OpenCL™, DirectX® and OpenGL, an open standard API for cloud gaming can help align the industry around one platform and drive continued innovations.

03.20.2014 - Microsoft announces Stephen J. Luczo leaving board of directors



View Microsoft-Press related news.

REDMOND, Wash. — Mar ch 20 , 201 4 Microsoft Corp. announced Thursday that Stephen J. Luczo, chairman and CEO of Seagate Technology PLC, has stepped down from the company’s board of directors.

“It has been a pleasure serving on the Microsoft board, and helping to guide the company through such a historic period of change and reinvention,” Luczo said. “With the CEO search completed and Satya off to a strong start, this felt like an appropriate time to make this change so I can turn my full attention to leading Seagate. Seagate and Microsoft have a long history of working together, and I look forward to continued collaboration and partnership under Satya’s leadership.”

“Steve has been an excellent board member, and I particularly appreciate all of his hard work as a member of the CEO search committee,” said John W. Thompson, chairman of the Microsoft board. “Steve also played an important role in helping to craft a compensation plan that tightly links CEO pay to shareholder returns, as chair of the compensation committee.”

“Steve brought thoughtful industry insights and perspective to the board,” said Bill Gates, founder and technology advisor of Microsoft. “I want to thank him for his contributions to the board and to Microsoft during his tenure. I appreciate his service.”

Luczo joined Microsoft’s board in May 2012. He served as a member of the CEO search committee established in August 2013 to identify the successor to former CEO Steve Ballmer. Luczo also served on the compensation and audit committees of the board.

Microsoft’s board of directors now consists of 10 members: Steven A. Ballmer, former Microsoft chief executive officer; Dina Dublon, former chief financial officer of JPMorgan Chase; William H. Gates, Microsoft founder and technology advisor; Maria M. Klawe, president of Harvey Mudd College; David F. Marquardt, general partner at August Capital; G. Mason Morfit, president of ValueAct Capital; Satya Nadella, Microsoft chief executive officer; Charles H. Noski, former vice chairman of Bank of America Corp.; Dr. Helmut Panke, former chairman of the board of management at BMW (Bayerische Motoren Werke) AG; and John W. Thompson, chief executive officer of Virtual Instruments. Seven of the 10 board members are independent of Microsoft, which is consistent with the requirement in the company’s governance guidelines that a substantial majority be independent.

Founded in 1975, Microsoft (Nasdaq “MSFT”) is the worldwide leader in software, services and solutions that help people and businesses realize their full potential.

03.20.2014 - PostgreSQL updates 9.3.4, 9.2.8, 9.1.13, 9.0.17, and 8.4.21 released



View PostgreSQL-Press related news.

The PostgreSQL Global Development Group has released an update to all supported version of the database system, including versions 9.3.4, 9.2.8, 9.1.13, 9.0.17, and 8.4.21. This minor release fixes a data corruption issue with replication and crash recovery in version 9.3, as well as several other minor issues in all versions. All users of version 9.3 are urged to update their installations at the next possible downtime. Users of older versions should update at their convenience.

The data corruption issue in PostgreSQL 9.3 affects binary replication standbys, servers being recovered from point-in-time-recovery backup, and standalone servers which recover from a system crash. The bug causes unrecoverable index corruption during recovery due to incorrect replay of row locking operations. This can then cause query results to be inconsistent depending on whether or not an index is used, and eventually lead to primary key violations and similar issues. For this reason, users are encouraged to replace each of their standby databases with a new base backup after applying the update.

Other PostgreSQL 9.3-only fixes in this update include:

  • Make sure that statistics files for dropped databases get deleted
  • Allow materialized views to be referenced in UPDATE and DELETE queries
  • Add read-only data_checksum parameter
  • Prevent erroneous operator push-down in postgres_fdw

This release resolves some other issues in all versions of PostgreSQL, including:

  • Fix timing consistency issue with NOTIFY
  • Allow regular expression execution to be cancelled
  • Improve performance of index checks for newly added rows
  • Prevent premature walsender disconnection
  • Prevent memory errors on newer Windows versions
  • Update timezone files

Additional changes and details of some of the above issues can be found in the Release Notes. Two of the issues which affect version 9.3 have additional information on the 9.3.4 Update Wiki Page.

Users of version 8.4 should note that it will reach End-of-Life (EOL) three months from now, per our Versioning Policy. This means that this is likely to be the next-to-last update for version 8.4, and users should be planning to upgrade to a newer version of PostgreSQL.

As with other minor releases, users are not required to dump and reload their database or use pg_upgrade in order to apply this update release; you may simply shut down PostgreSQL and update its binaries. Users who have skipped multiple update releases may need to perform additional post-update steps; see the Release Notes for details.
