NVIDIA have enabled the Multi-Frame Sampled Anti-Aliasing (MFAA) on their GTX 980 and GTX GPUs now, and PC Perspective checked it out. That changes today with the release of NVIDIA's 344.75 driver, the first to implement support for the new and potentially important anti-aliasing method. Before we dive into the results of our testing, both in performance and image quality, let's get a quick recap on what exactly MFAA is and how it works. Guru3D have their thoughts posted also.

Netflix are coming to Australia and New Zealand. The company has announced that internet-connected users in Australia and New Zealand will be able to subscribe to Netflix from March 2015, and they will gain access to a "curated selection" of movies and TV shows in high definition or even 4K where available. Discussion here.

But in the meantime, online piracy websites may be blocked in Australia. Websites that host or link to copyright infringing movies and TV shows could soon be blocked if cabinet approves a government submission to tackle online copyright infringement. Sources tell Fairfax Media Attorney-General George Brandis and Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull are canvassing a range of options put forward in response to their online copyright infringement discussion paper released in late July and intend to present cabinet with their own submission before Christmas.

Tony Hawk rode a hoverboard. For real this time. Hendo’s hover technology relies on magnets, which means the hoverboard can, for the time being, only hover over non-ferrous materials. When I first spoke to Greg and Jill, I apologized for not being a scientist before I began asking stupid questions like, “What does non-ferrous mean?” and “Why can’t I ride it down the street?”

TechnologyX have a guide to 60 FPS vs 30 FPS. The fact that this is even being debated now, after so many years of both PC and console gaming co-existing seems strange, doesn’t it? Well, the reason we’re talking about this now is because with the latest generation of consoles many gamers were expecting to see console games that can rival even the most high-end PCs, in terms of graphical fidelity and technical capabilities.

If you're looking for a drone for Xmas, mpot spotted this guide to a few good ones. Chinese companies are pumping out truckloads of mini quads right now, and while they can’t find their own way home, they can teach you the basics of how to fly a speedy four-propeller craft for under $100 even in a tiny apartment. They won’t make cops nervous, and they’re an absolute blast to fly around.

This sounds like the Olympics for Nerds: Microsoft Corp. and Certiport Inc., a Pearson VUE business, on Monday announced the dates for the 2015 Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) World Championship, the most popular technology skills competition for Microsoft Office since its inception in 2002. The popular Microsoft Office competition is the only one endorsed by Microsoft, providing a platform for students to showcase their expert skills using Microsoft Office tools and gain the upper hand in today’s competitive academic and professional marketplace.

Plane nerds meanwhile can make whooshing noises and pretend to push all the buttons in this SR-71 cockpit!
