The industry's first HD (720p) playback and capture capability for handheld devices.
NVIDIA Corporation, the world leader in visual computing technologies and inventor of the GPU, today introduced NVIDIA® APX 2500, a breakthrough applications processor that enables intuitive 3D user interfaces and engaging high-definition video on connected Windows Mobile phones. The APX 2500 applications processor delivers an unprecedented 10 hours of 720p HD playback—an industry first for video quality and power consumption on a mobile device, as well as stunning HD camcorder and ultra-high-resolution photo imaging capabilities.

"This is the dawn of the second personal computer revolution," said Jen-Hsun Huang, president and CEO of NVIDIA. "Technologies are converging in amazing mobile devices, that have all of the rich, visual capabilities of a modern PC—from watching movies and making video calls to surfing the web and playing 3D games. The APX 2500 combined with Microsoft® Windows Mobile, will make the next generation of smartphones our most personal computer."

NVIDIA has worked closely with Microsoft on the development of APX 2500, marking a significant milestone in a long-term relationship that has seen the companies share a passion for making interaction with technology more visual and instinctive across multiple platforms. The combined engineering efforts of the two companies will ensure that next generation versions of the Windows Mobile operating system will harness the capabilities of the APX 2500 applications processor across challenging multimedia use cases.

"Microsoft is dedicated to providing people true mobile freedom, so that they only need to carry one device for both communication and entertainment," said Todd Warren, corporate vice president of Microsoft's mobile communication business. "We are delighted to work with NVIDIA to offer our users an amazing visual experience on the next-generation Windows Mobile phones."

The NVIDIA APX 2500 applications processor, which is the culmination of 800 man years of engineering, delivers:

The industry's first HD (720p) playback and capture capability for handheld devices.
A new ultra-low-power (ULP) GeForce® core that is fully OpenGL ES 2.0 and Microsoft Direct3D® Mobile compliant and the lowest power 3D hardware solution available for acceleration of intuitive 3D user interfaces.
NVIDIA nPower™ technology, enabling over 10 hours of high-definition video playback and up to 100 hours of audio—more than four times the audio playback of the latest touch-screen phones.
The connectivity and media acceleration technologies required to enable the latest Web 2.0 applications, from effortless web browsing and social networking to GPS and mapping applications.
The NVIDIA APX 2500 applications processor is sampling today with key customers and will enter into full production by the end of Q2 2008. For a live demonstration of the APX 2500 applications processor, please visit NVIDIA at Mobile World Congress 2008 in Barcelona, Hall 1, Booth # 1C34.

Two main ones and a few smaller gripes;

1: Either the bots have reverted back to uber crap mode (i can walk up and knife both every round) or, i have gotten crazily good. It's the former. Bots need to be put back onto a harder difficulty.

2: Has the DM server gone down? If so, its been down for a few days (my housemate was complaining he couldn't find it)

3: Did you take down that 3rd server. I guess you did because i can't remember seeing it for months.

4: Could i be added to the ping exceptions list? My new house's connection isn't all that stable and my ping sometime goes to 150 or so for a minute or two. I keep getting kicked, usually when i'm winning and coming back on level 1.

5: I know most of the admins for on reason or another have given up on CS:S or on the OC3D servers at least, but some days it gets a little silly on there, and not just with hackers, but there are also a few regs that get massively offensive and sometimes quiet racist. I don't care too much, but it doesn't look good and it's cleared the server a few times. I think the odd admin popping on now and again and laying the law down might help.

Wow, that became quiet a long list. I heard Jim was busy at the moment, so don't worry too much about this, but the first two points really need sorting.

That's a lot of criticism, so i should point out i'm only saying it because i love the way the server plays, and i like to see it full of good players. Not mouthy hacking asshats and bots that don't put up a fight.

cheers for anything you do do.
