The Renovo Coupe might not be everyone's cup of tea, but it's certainly one of the curviest — and shiniest — electric supercars that you are ever likely to lay eyes on. Boasting a 740-volt lithium ion battery that pushes out 500-horse power and a Nvidia Tegra X1 superchip with a teraflop of processing grunt, it's certainly no slouch in the "oomph" department either. We were lucky to get up close and personal with the latest iteration at Nvidia's GPU Technology Conference in San Jose, California. Despite having to constantly wipe drool off our lens, we managed to take a few photos...

Today, almost 40 per cent of PC gamers have quad-core CPUs and a video card that would disintegrate the Xbox 360's "Xenos" GPU with a mere glance. But it's not the PC, or even consoles, that holds the attention of the gaming industry. No, mobile phones are the focus now.

Last year, the CSIRO's supercomputer was ranked as the 145th most powerful supercomputer in the world. Powered by NVIDIA's Tesla GPUs and constructed by Aussie company Xenon, the supercomputer is used is a fine example of the benefits of using GPUs for scientific discovery. but according to NVIDIA's GM of Tesla computing, Andy Keane, it's the current developments in the mobile processing space that will drive the next generation of supercomputers.

It's everywhere. CES, which hasn't even officially started yet, has already given birth to more Tegra 2 phones and tablets than I care to count. So, again, what's so special about this thing again?
