New PS4 CUH-1100 TearDown, PlayStation 4 CUH-1000 Model Comparison

New PS4 CUH-1100 TearDown, PlayStation 4 CUH-1000 Model Comparison 500°
19w ago - Following up on the initial announcement, today both difference comparisons and a teardown in pictures of the new PS4 CUH-1100 and the previous PlayStation 4 CUH-1000 models are available with details below.

To quote: "If you want to know the differences between the first CUH-1000 series model of the PS4 and the new CUH-1100 series which Sony has been pushing on the market lately, the Japanese blog Pocketnews did an extensive teardown of the new console and found out every little discrepancy between the two SKUs.

Power consumption between the two models is about the same both in stand-by mode and when turned on, while the CUH-1100 is about 50 grams lighter than its older counterpart, weighing 2.70 Kg instead of 2.75.

The new motherboard has the model number SAB-001, while the original one was SAA-001. Below you can see two pictures featuring both sides of the new board.

 

New PS4 & PS3 Models CUH-1106A & CECH-4306CH Incoming, Details

New PS4 & PS3 Models CUH-1106A & CECH-4306CH Incoming, Details 50°
41w ago - Today some new PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 Models CUH-1106A (PS4) and CECH-4306CH (PS3) respectively have been revealed by a Certification Request filed by Sony with details below.

To quote: "The PS4 has just been launched a few months ago, but Sony might already be planning to launch a new model of its new console. The manufacturer filed for the registration of two new "Computer Entertainment Systems" with the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology of the Republic of Indonesia.

The filing, listed on the official Web site of the Directorate of General Resources and Equipment of Post and Information Technology, bears the model number CUH-1106A. This seems to indicate an evolution of the console, but not a radical redesign like the passage from the PS3 slim to the super slim, for instance, which is normally indicated by an incremental change of the first number of the code (the slim was launched with the model number CECH-2001A, while the super slim started with CECH-4001A).

Currently the Asian version of the PS4 has the...

TorrentSpy ordered to pay $110 million in damages to MPAA

TorrentSpy ordered to pay $110 million in damages to MPAA 50°
356w ago - After a federal judge awarded the MPAA a summary judgment against former BitTorrent tracker TorrentSpy late last year, the only question left was how much it would end up costing TorrentSpy's admins.

We've got our answer, and it comes in the form of a staggering $110 million damage award, or $30,000 in statutory damages for each of the nearly 3,700 files in the MPAA's complaint.

The MPAA announced the award in a press release (PDF) earlier today.

"This substantial money judgment sends a strong message about the illegality of these sites," said Dan Glickman, Chairman and CEO of the MPAA. "The demise of TorrentSpy is a clear victory for the studios and demonstrates that such pirate sites will not be allowed to continue to operate without facing relentless litigation by copyright holders."

In addition to the damage award, TorrentSpy is also permanently enjoined against any future copyright infringement, a moot point given the fact that all that remains of the site is a farewell message citing a "hostile" legal climate in the US when it comes to user privacy and copyright.

TorrentSpy was sued by the MPAA in February 2006 and fought back with a countersuit...
 

Intel wreaks Havok for $110M

Intel wreaks Havok for $110M 50°
389w ago - Update: The financial terms of Intel's buyout of Havok were not initially disclosed. However, Reuters reports that Irish venture capital firm TVC Holdings estimated the deal's value at around $110 million. On Monday, TVC agreed to sell its 27 percent stake in Havok for about $21 million.

Over the weekend, Silicon Valley giant Intel announced its latest acquisition. The deal, however, wasn't for a new chip-making unit or the rumored purchase of graphics-card maker card Nvidia. Instead, Intel bought Havok, the Irish developer of the widely used physics engine of the same name.

"Havok is a proven leader in physics technology for gaming and digital content, and will become a key element of Intel's visual computing and graphics efforts," said Renee James, an Intel vice president and general manager of its Software and Solutions Group, in a statement. James said that the tech giant would allow the middleware maker to conduct "business as usual" via a hands-off management approach.

Based in Dublin, Havok has been crafting digital effects and game-physics middleware for nine years, expanding its operations to San Francisco, San Antonio, Stockholm, Calcutta, Munich, and Tokyo. Its technology can be found in dozens of games, including BioShock, Stranglehold, Half Life 2, The Elder Scrolls...
