Zynga buys mobile gaming startup Wild Needle

Social gaming firm Zynga has bought mobile games company Wild Needle in efforts to boost its game development talent.

The gaming startup launched in 2010 and secured funding of $2.5 million from Thompson and Shasta Ventures. It is not yet clear how much Zynga paid to acquire the team, but it is likely in the lower end of the companys spending range, estimated at between $5 million and $20 million.Wild Needle developed Shoptown Hero for iOS, a freemium social game that tasks players to save a small town from a tycoon called Fat Ralph using virtual store goods and customer negotiation, a nice little twist that is probably a homage to the new-found haggling power introduced with the global recession.However, the game did not really take off, with less than 100 likes on its Facebook page. It was discontinued at the end of last month, with no explanation for the reasons why, though obviously it was due to the Zynga deal. The website for the game and the studio itself have also been taken offline.It is not yet clear if Zynga will relaunch Wild Needles game or if it will simply get the staff to work on its existing projects. What is clear, however, is that this is unlikely to be the last acquisition Zynga will make this year in its efforts to dominate the social gaming arena.Source: TechCrunch

TCCD Supply Demystified

The Samsung "TCCD" memory chip is the best overclocking IC for the AMDplatform. Since speculation began about the TCCD reaching End-of-Life (EOL), theenthusiast community has been concerned about its near- and long-termavailability. The purpose of this update is to provide a lead on the currentstatus of this very popular IC. The TCCD specification was tailor-made forCorsair by Samsung. As a part of the agreement, Samsung has agreed to directlysupply Corsair's TCCD requirements until the end of 2005 and beyond. Contrary torumours that indicate universal unavailability of TCCD, Corsair continues toprovide high performance XMS memory modules made with 100% Samsung original TCCDIC's.

There has been suggestions on TCC5 being an equal replacement of TCCD. While theICs share similar names, they do not share identical performancecharacteristics. TCC5 is a down-bin of TCCD and does not deliver the sameperformance promise that TCCD does. Based on our stringent testing requirements,only TCCD can meet the demand. Corsair also uses TCC5 IC's but because they areof lesser capability, TCC5 IC's are used only in the lower grade parts. Below isa list of TCCD based Corsair products that are currently shipping:

XMS 3200XL 400 MHz / PC3200 2-2-2-5
4400C25 550 MHz / PC4400 2.5-4-4-8
XMS PRO 3200XL PRO 400 MHz / PC3200 2-2-2-5

Samsung WLP DDR2 Chips

Samsung Electronics today announced a wafer level packaging (WLP) technology for 512Mbit DDR2 chips that can enhance electrical properties and reduces physical space of the chips. The new package technology has two patterned inter-layer dielectrics (ILD), with insulating characteristics, and a metal layer replaces the conventional package substrate. The package enhances electrical properties though shorter circuit-routing, reduces package size to die level and package process time, and improves productivity – especially for larger wafer sizes – with higher throughput and lower cost.

WD brings the VelociRaptor back from the dead with 1TB version

Ah yes, mechanical drives spinning at 10,000rpm, once the dream of every computer nerd, but since the introduction of the SSD, were not so sure theres much of a demand for Western Digitals VelociRaptor drives. Either which way, WD seems to think that theres enough demand and has revived the VelociRaptor range of drives and in its third iteration were looking at larger capacities, more SKUs and better performance.

The VR333M as the new VelociRaptor is also known as comes in sizes of 250, 500 and 1000GB, or 333GB per platter. WD has boosted the buffer to 64MB, up from 32MB and the buffer to disk transfer rate from 145MB/s to 200MB/s. The new drives are of course using the SATA 6Gbps interface and have also gained support for advanced format with 4K sectors, something the older models lack.

Judging by a review over at Anandtech, the new VelociRaptor manages quite well when it comes to sequential read performance, hitting just over 213MB/s which is SATA 3Gbbps SSD territory. The write performance is actually identical and according to the benchmarks provided, this is in fact faster than the 160GB SKU of Intels 320 series SSD which only managed a smidgen under 168MB/s. The average read speed for the 1TB VelociRaptor ends up at 173MB/s with burst speeds hitting an impressive 332.7MB/s.

WD has also managed to reduce the power consumption compared to the previous generation of VelociRaptor drives by a good 1W and change during write operation, but it still draws over 3W more than Intel SSD. However, despite good performance for a hard drive, the VelociRaptor is most likely the last of a breed, not because its a bad product, but because its priced all wrong.

The 1TB SKU will set you back no less than US$320 (S$400) for which you could pretty much get a 4TB drive if you just wanted a lot of storage, or a 1TB OCZ RevoDrive Hybridwhich has 100GB of dedicated cache and a PCI Express 2.0 x4 interface. The 500GB SKU comes in a bit cheaper at US$210, which is pretty much what you can get the older, slower 600GB VelociRaptor for. Finally the 250GB SKU is $160 and in that case, wed rather cut our losses in terms of available storage space and go for a 128GB SSD.

Sony amp; Toshiba To Develop 45nm Chip

Sony and Toshiba plan to each invest 10 billion yen ($ 95 million) to jointly develop a microchip that will be smaller and more powerful than any now available. The planned next-generation semiconductor will have 45-nanometre circuitry -- even narrower than the circuitry planned for "cell", a 65-nanometre microprocessor being developed by the two companies and IBM. Toshiba and Sony target completion of a 45-nanometre system LSI (large-scale integrated) -- a high-end microchip that combines multiple functions on one piece of silicon to power everything from DVD recorders to game machines -- by late 2005.

No Price Cuts For LGA775 P4

Intel will not be lowering prices for its LGA 775 Pentium 4 lineup of processors before the end of this year. Taiwan motherboard makers had expected Intel to slash the prices of its desktop-use P4 CPUs sometime in the fourth quarter, to counter planned mid-October CPU price cuts by AMD. Intel was also reducing its supply of Socket 478 Pentium 4 and 865 chipsets, in order to push migration to the LGA 775 platform.
