Nvidia GTX 570 Video Card

Nvidia GTX 570 Video Card - After the successful launch of the GTX 580, Nvidia has revealed the GTX 570 which is the successor to the GTX 470. This new graphics card is targeted at the enthusiast segment and is based on the same re-worked Fermi core, GF110 like the GTX 580. The card will be available starting today (at least in U.S.) and consumers will have a choice from all Nvidia board partners like ZOTAC, Asus, MSI, Sparkle, PNY, Leadtek, Galaxy, ECS, EVGA, etc.

Looking at the specifications of the card, you can think of the GTX 570 as a hybrid between the GTX 480 ad the GTX 470. The new card packs in the same shader count that the GTX 480 had but runs on a slightly stripped down memory bus of 320-bit that the GTX 470 ran on. Due to this, the pixel and texture fill rate have increased by roughly 20 percent and thanks to the new and improved Fermi core, Nvidia has been able to bump up the clock speeds of the core and memory which should ring out even more performance. Given it's current price point (somewhere around Rs. 23,000) it goes head on with ATI's DX11 offering, the HD5870. However, this is going to be short lived as ATI plans to launch its 'Cayman' or 6900 series in a week's time so the GTX 570 may reign superior now but the tables could turn very shortly if ATI pulls through. In the mean time, we are busy finishing up the review of the GTX 570 so stay tuned for a full report.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Obviously, we’ll have more on this story throughout the day and well into the night…

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.

100-calorie Packs Diet

100-calorie Packs Diet - Did you know recent studies show chronic dieters tend to consume more calories when foods and packages are smaller? Consumer behavior was observed in the study regarding "mini-packs," 100-calorie food packages that are marketed to help people control calorie intake.

The study revealed that one group that over-consumes the mini-packs is chronic dieters - individuals making a conscious effort in trying to manage their weight and food intake.

This shows that the distorted perception of small packages may actually undermine dieters' attempts to limit calories.

Consider this: Consumers perceive the mini-packs to be a generous portion of food - numerous small food morsels in each pack and multiple mini-packs in each box - while on the other hand, consumers perceive the mini-packs to be diet food. For chronic dieters, this perceptual dilemma causes a tendency to overeat, due to their emotion-laden relationship with food.

In a series of focus group studi…
