11 open source programming tools on the rise

Open source programming tool on the rise: OpenVidia

Graphics processing units are best known for popping up triangles from mythical worlds where people shoot at each other. This is rapidly changing as video card manufacturers and programmers are realizing that the chips are massively parallel computers primed to manipulate code. Scientists are learning that the graphics card used to play Grand Theft Auto can also run simulations to help cure diseases, as many scientific problems can be structured to include a huge number of events that happen simultaneously, a perfect job for a video card. The OpenVidia repository is filled with projects that perform image recognition, searching, and more. It makes a perfect excuse for every programmer to ask their boss for an expensive graphics card.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott


My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
