    SONY PICTURES STUDIOS—CULVER CITY, CA—MAY 16, 2005—NVIDIA Corporation (Nasdaq: NVDA) a worldwide leader in graphics and digital media processors, provided a first look at the powerful graphics architecture of PLAYSTATION®3 at a press conference held today by Sony Computer Entertainment (SCE). NVIDIA and SCE are jointly developing a new graphics processor for PLAYSTATION®3. Codenamed “RSX,” the new processor will connect directly to Cell, the advanced microprocessor developed by IBM, Sony Group, and Toshiba.

    “RSX is jointly developed by NVIDIA, the number one company in PC graphics, and SCE, the leader in computer entertainment,” said Ken Kutaragi, president and group CEO, Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. “This cutting-edge graphics processor will give freedom in graphics expression and accelerate the fusion of entertainment content.”

    “PLAYSTATION 3 will be the most important computer entertainment and digital media platform of the decade,” added Jen-Hsun Huang, president and CEO, NVIDIA. “The combination of Cell and RSX will enable the creation of next-generation real-time 3D imagery that will take your breath away.”

    During the press conference, Mr. Huang demonstrated examples of graphics breakthroughs that will be available to future PLAYSTATION 3 developers and end-users. His presentation included real-time demos created by NVIDIA as well as a new demo developed by Epic Games. The demos illustrate how RSX will enable PLAYSTATION 3 games to realize stunning immersive and interactive environments, compelling and believable characters, and experiences beyond what was previously thought possible.

    RSX will be the most sophisticated graphics processor ever built, representing 1500 person-years of investment. When combined with Cell, it will provide an astounding two teraflops of floating point horsepower. A measure of the extraordinary processing power of RSX compared to current-generation game consoles is the numbers of transistors it will contain: 300 million. This is more than the total number of transistors in both the central processing units and the graphics processing units of the three leading current-generation systems, combined.

    RSX will be manufactured at Sony Group’s Nagasaki Fab2 as well as OTSS (joint fabrication facility of Toshiba and Sony).

    Blu-ray Disc

    Blu-ray, also known as Blu-ray Disc (BD), is the name of a next-generation optical disc format jointly developed by the Blu-ray Disc Association (BDA), a group of the world's leading consumer electronics, personal computer and media manufacturers (including Apple, Dell, Hitachi, HP, JVC, LG, Mitsubishi, Panasonic, Pioneer, Philips, Samsung, Sharp, Sony, TDK and Thomson). The format was developed to enable recording, rewriting and playback of high-definition video (HD), as well as storing large amounts of data. The format offers more than five times the storage capacity of traditional DVDs and can hold up to 25GB on a single-layer disc and 50GB on a dual-layer disc. This extra capacity combined with the use of advanced video and audio codecs will offer consumers an unprecedented HD experience.

    While current optical disc technologies such as DVD, DVD±R, DVD±RW, and DVD-RAM rely on a red laser to read and write data, the new format uses a blue-violet laser instead, hence the name Blu-ray. Despite the different type of lasers used, Blu-ray products can easily be made backwards compatible with CDs and DVDs through the use of a BD/DVD/CD compatible optical pickup unit. The benefit of using a blue-violet laser (405nm) is that it has a shorter wavelength than a red laser (650nm), which makes it possible to focus the laser spot with even greater precision. This allows data to be packed more tightly and stored in less space, so it's possible to fit more data on the disc even though it's the same size as a CD/DVD. This together with the change of numerical aperture to 0.85 is what enables Blu-ray Discs to hold 25GB/50GB.

    Blu-ray is currently supported by more than 170 of the world's leading consumer electronics, personal computer, recording media, video game and music companies. The format also has broad support from the major movie studios as a successor to today's DVD format. Seven of the eight major movie studios have already announced titles for Blu-ray, including Warner, Paramount, Fox, Disney, Sony, MGM and Lionsgate. The initial line-up is expected to consist of over 100 titles and include recent hits as well as classics such as Batman Begins, Desperado, Fantastic Four, Fifth Element, Hero, Ice Age, Kill Bill, Lethal Weapon, Mission Impossible, Ocean's Twelve, Pirates of the Caribbean, Reservoir Dogs, Robocop, and The Matrix. Many studios have also announced that they will begin releasing new feature films on Blu-ray Disc day-and-date with DVD, as well as a continuous slate of catalog titles every month.

    It seems to be in line with an early Tribulation Epistle, which Peter is (1 Pet 1). He's addressing this to the "strangers" and that would go with those Rev 7 144,000. Here Peter is exhorting them through the witness of Christ while He was in the flesh (human flesh - not the body He's in now - you're version has it wrong) that as He suffered and went through it, then you too can go through this time of Tribulation. If you remember that the Books starting with Hebrews is written for those who are going through the Tribulation and the birth pangs of the Millennium then it becomes less mysterious.
