HTC One X review

Don't call it a comeback. HTC certainly was in the running for King of Mobile World Congress 2012 (an award that would be way cooler if it existed) with the new HTC One line, and the HTC One X specifically. When you stop and think about it, however, it's also a logical progression. HTC started...

NVIDIA dares to question Apple's unquestioned facts

Fun fact about Apple events: You see a lot of clean slides and graphs and charts and stuff. Often, they're too clean. At Wednesday's iPad event, Apple claimed its A5X processor performs four times better than NVIDIA's quad-core Tegra 3 processor when it comes to graphics. And that's all it said....

Formerly known as a quad-core system with a fifth low power companion core, or vSMP, NVIDIA has just put out the word that its new Tegra 3 architecture will be known as "4-PLUS-1". (We were kind of partial to Ninja Core ourselves.) It's the same four-core Cortex A9 system on chip that we talked...
