Finally, The First 'Modern Warfare Trailer 3'

Adrenaline pumping you probably already heard this news. Although it seems so small, but a small peek of what is offered by Modern Warfare 3 is already enough to make the gaming world in an uproar. The gameplay is born from the hands of developers reliably under Activision this giant flag is being eagerly awaited. Moreover, many new things that will be presented in it.

For you who do not know, Modern Warfare will present three still plot continued from MW2 with some old characters that are also presented. Call it Soap, Price, and Makarov. Several new characters are also presented. Rumors spread that we also will play a new personnel with the code name of Frost and the Sandman. The focus of the war we will move from the U.S. to the three major countries in Europe, namely Britain, Germany and France.

From the trailer, you can see yourself trying to build suspense in this MW3 Activision. Some elements of "dramatization" typical still appear in this series. The battle of the massive scale and destructive seems to be a selling points that make the gamer MW3 maintain loyalty in this game. But one thing is quite intriguing, the graphics engine seems to be presented has not changed much.

Talking MW3 means talking competitor from EA, Battlefield which is now entering the third series as well. With competition and big money behind each of the existing franchise, the two big games this competition will be interesting to observe. Moreover Battlefield 3 "looks" brings graphics quality is much better than the existing trailer than MW3. So, which one would you choose?

NVIDIA Optimus for Linux

Have you heard about Optimus NVIDIA technology? The technology to allow notebooks with Intel chips and NVIDIA graphics cards to exchange automatically as needed. If you need a process of computing with a high graphic level, then the system will automatically work with graphics cards using NVIDIA. However, if you only need a lightweight computing activities, the system will use a graphics chip from Intel alone. The advantages of this technology is the survival of the notebook, if only to survive using the batteries, will become longer. Want to know more about the technology? Please read our previous article "NVIDIA Optimus Review: Life Be More Easily". 

What are the weaknesses of this Optimus NVIDIA technology? Technology can not be run on operating systems other than Windows. However, it is about to change. There are some developers who are currently trying to run the technology on the Linux operating system! Currently, the developers are working on Bumblebee, an open source that will realize the dream of notebook users with the Linux operating system. The developers are being sought for NVIDIA Optimus work in Ubuntu, Debian, OpenSUSE, Fedora, and Arch Linux. For the future, the list will be added again by these developers. Such information we collect through liliputing.com. 

This information is enough to bring fresh air for users of notebooks with the Linux operating system because they can choose to use Intel or NVIDIA graphics. Much remains to be repaired because Bumblebee is still not complete as Optimus, such as switching graphics automatically, yet has a list of games, and any application that can use the NVIDIA GPU. However, in our opinion, only a matter of time until finally 'Bumblebee' will be as strong as Optimus.

NVIDIA Optimus Review : Life Be More Easily

What is this technology? Is NVIDIA managed to obtain technology from the Transformers? Haha, of course it is only imaginary. However, NVIDIA has to offer with Optimus technology is indeed like a dream notebook users.

In short, with Optimus, notebook users do not need to bother when I had to choose: a notebook with fast graphics system but poor battery endurance, or a notebook with integrated graphics system (the famous are less able to play heavy graphic content) but with good battery life.

Why would NVIDIA need to bother to create this technology? The answer is because need for this technology is very high. The main cause is due to the high number of notebook users today. According to Gartner, the growth of notebooks have surpassed desktops, ranging from 2009.Tren this year will only be increasing in the future.

Requirements : Battery life and performance

Notebook computers are portable and can be used without the need to search your electric outlet. Both these important points to note. For portability, the notebook should be quite mild. To be able to work anywhere, the notebook should have a good battery life. Power adapter is one of the extra burden when you carry the notebook. So, a good notebook should be able to carry without requiring a power adapter. This means the battery resistance should be very good.

Performance is a critical requirement. Failure to satisfy netbook users in its first year attendance is proof positive. Netbooks do not have enough performance to run many applications that are important. In fact, running a YouTube video with HD resolution of course, been very hard done by netbooks. In the end, the trend again turned to a more powerful notebook.

So far, notebook with additional graphics system (discrete graphics) are always faced with a problem. The battery resistance is generally bad. This is because notebooks have to supply extra power to the graphics system (VGA) that powerful. In fact, the graphics system is not always working at maximum capacity. Thus, power supplied to the graphics system tends to be wasted.

Meanwhile, a notebook with integrated graphics system (such as Intel HD Intel 4500MHD or graphics on i3, i5, and i7) has a tendency durable good battery. However, this system has a graphics capability that is sometimes inadequate. For example, to play 3D games, integrated graphics system is generally difficult to run smoothly. At the time of playback HD movies (especially Full HD 1080p MKV format), integrated graphics system will be quite overwhelmed. It is not capable, but all systems would work hard until the system response becomes impaired just because running the full HD movie. Want to try to convert some movies while playing a 1080p Full HD movies? This system is certainly not the right choice for these needs.

Switchable Graphics: the right solution?

Looking at the above conditions, you may think, "why not make a notebook that has two graphics systems and allow users to choose the graphics system which is needed?"This is done several notebook vendors. Notebooks with Intel Core i3/i5/i7 who have integrated graphics system combined with discrete graphics system. Users are free to choose the graphics system where needed.

The problem is, there are still many users who do not know how to do the switching between two graphics systems. For those who know how, there are still problems with human negligence that often forget to do the switching. Suddenly, the notebook was running out of battery in the middle of a presentation, as users forgetperform switch to integrated graphics system more efficient power.

Another problem that arises is the method of switching itself. In the early stages, the switching method still requires the user to restart the notebook. While the last method, although the notebook does not need to be restarted, users are still faced with the problem when there are few applications that are "holding" the graphics system to refrain from switching ( eg,browser ). This makes you have to turn off the application first, can do the switching.

But did you know that you also memilliki opportunity to become part of one of the largest military operation of Navy Seals this? Of course not directly, but the video games offer the possibility of it through a little creativity.

Kuma War is the first to bring this phenomenon.

You are also asked to search for all material relating to intelligence that Al-Qaeda from the mission. It looks really simple, but you can catch Osama figure clearly enough presented.
