Toshiba's much more improved tablet called Excite was seen at the IFA show.

Toshiba’s much improved tablet, Excite, made an appearance at the IFA show ahead of time. Even though staffs were closely watching it, the said Android slate was clearly seen at the Toshiba booth before the expo started.

Excite appears to use mostly a stock version of Android 3, and has the mini HDMI, microSD and microUSB support that was leaked out previously. Other details said that it is one of the few Android 3 tablets outside of the HTC Jetstream to use something other than a Tegra 2 chip — if these details are accurate. Toshiba might use a dual-core, 1.5GHz TI OMAP4460 chip that could make it one of the fastest tablets in the field. Front and rear cameras are known, but support for 3G or 4G isn’t.

The Excite promises to reverse an additional error Toshiba made with the Thrive and should ship much closer to its unveiling date, most likely within a few weeks.

NVIDIA has finally introduced a GTX 500 series graphics card that's affordable, yet packs incredible performance the series is well known for.

NVIDIA has just unleashed the heir to the great throne of the stellar success of the GTX 460, but this time under the flag of the GTX 500 series. Introducing the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti, the company’s newest graphic card to enter the $250 range market that promises to blow your mind with its transistor level hardware improvements found in the GTX 500 series. With increased clock speeds, less leakage, and better power efficiency, the GTX 560 Ti packs the power you need with a mid-range price budget.

You may be wondering what the “Ti” stands for. Well if you listened to your chemistry teacher, Ti is Titanium which is a material commonly used for air and spacecrafts. The lightness and strength of the element gives the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti that added performance boost (although this isn’t quite the first time NVIDIA has used it).

Hit the break and check out the specs of the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti.
