Media Player Classic Home Cinema v220.127.116.1102
Download Media Player Classic Home Cinema v18.104.22.16802 This open Source Media Player allows you to enhance, decode and accelerate a broad span of movie formats like x.264 with GPU assisted acceleration and image quality enhancing.
Modern graphics card offer the possibility to decode partially or completely a video stream using DirectX Video Acceleration (DXVA), in order to reduce CPU usage dramatically. MPC-HC includes an embedded video decoder that uses this technology, to decode x.264, H.264 and VC-1 with hardly any CPU time required.
This project is based on the original "Media Player Classic" and was created after Gabest, the original author, stopped.
The download has both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions in the 7ZIP self extractable

Sandy Bridge Prices likely to drop in June/July
When Ivy Bridge launched we all expected CPU prices to drop a little, instead .... Ivy bridge was introduced a little more expensive keeping the rest in pace.
Digitimes sources however now seem to indicate that Intel will most likely lower prices of Sandy Bridge processors in June-July and it will be very helpful in increasing demand for PCs in emerging markets. Intel has so far declined to comment on its pricing strategy between the old gen and new gen platforms. We'll report more when we get new information.

That's all and good but how about the 35GB required disk space? Well, this is due to higher quality textures, better rendered cut-scenes and higher audio quality. This basically means that the PC version will feature textures, which are four times the size of those on consoles. Yeap, you read that right. Four times higher quality textures.

NVIDIA: 30 Tegra 3 smartphones coming
The graphics firm also announced that the company's next-gen "Grey" Tegra will integrate the Icera 500 LTE chip:
While he didn't provide many details, he told investors that the i500 will have next-gen LTE speeds beyond what we've seen thus far, and it will be the modem paired with the company's next-gen Tegra processor for "Grey," the company's first integrated LTE silicon. We won't see Grey until next year, but Nvidia promises that its standalone Icera LTE technology will arrive later in 2012 with the aforementioned Icera 410.
Google preps cheap 7-Inch Tablet Appearing In June?
It seems that Google's is to relase their own 7-inch tablet PC whicch is scheduled to launch in July. There will be an initial batch of only 600,000 units shipping as early as June though. Word of mounth is that Asus is co-developing the device and the entry-level tablet will cost around $200 or less.
The tablet's inner details aren't known but we can probably expect Android 4.0 and maybe a quad-core chip. The Google 7-inch tablet could easily go up against existing Android 7-inchers that dominate; the Kindle Fire. The tablet might even come at a time that will help it compete against the rumored iPad Mini. If the tablet is really coming as early as June, I'm sure we'll here more official news about the device soon enough. Honestly, it strikes me as being a little odd that Motorola (which now finally belongs to Google) wasn't involved in the device's development. Who knows for sure. At least for a bit longer, I'd take this news with a grain of salt.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 launches soon ?
More graphics card 'gossip' today. It seems that the GeForce GTX 660 is
scheduled to arrive this summer. i've heard gossip about Computex already, but
that seems a little too soon to be honest. SweClockers got some info claiming
that the card would become available for 2500 Swedish kronors, which is around
$350 (including high VAT). Earlier leaks said that it will cost between $299 and
For Kepler it is suggested to be using the GK106 GPU and it would four shader clusters (SMX), considering that the Kepler architecture has 192 shaders per SMX, this card would get 768 shader aka cuda cores, stream processors. It is likely to be paired with 2Gb GDDR5 graphics memory but the discussion on whether that is 128 or 256-bit remains open. We think it'll have to be 256-bit for the product to make real sense.
To recap a GTX 660 could be inbound in-between June and August at roughly 299
USD ex VAT. Now a hint to the board partners, somebody just HAS to do a GeForce GTX 666
AMD board partners working on 7970 X2 ?
Interesting news from TPU today, they noticed via Donim haber that dual-GPU based Radeon HD 7970 X2 cards from board parters might be in the works. That means that the board partners are working on their own dual-GPU solutions based on Tahiti GPUs.
AMD is expected to release a RadeoN HD 7990, but that one seems to be delayed.Initially we expected that one to be released during Computex 2012, but so far nothing substantial has surfaced. DonanimHaber now reports that manufacturers are tired of waiting for actual Radeon HD 7990 model from AMD, so they will come up with something new.
The specs on these things can go all directions, it would make sense though for two 28 nm "Tahiti" GPUs to be used with even higher clock frequencies to they'll be able to take on the GeForce GTX 690.
As stated, it's all unconfirmed, but yeah .. that would be an interesting development.
