Pennsylvania Senate Passes Internet Expansion Bill

(TNS) — The rural internet expansion bill, sponsored by state Sen. Wayne Langerholc Jr., R-Richland Township, was passed by the Pennsylvania Senate Tuesday.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has brought into view what we in rural Pennsylvania have known for some time – broadband is essential to connectivity, education, safety and productivity,” Langerholc said in a release.

“The time is now to ensure all state residents are afforded the same opportunities.”

Senate Bill 835 creates a government grant program for high-speed broadband internet providers to expand into rural areas of the state that don’t already have access to reliable networks.

High-speed boradband is defined as 25 megabits-per-second download speeds and three megabits-per-second upload.

Nvidia’s RTX IO technology promises faster load times for RTX-equipped systems

Something to look forward to: Next-gen consoles are promising quite a few exciting new features, such as heavily reduced load times and reduced mesh or texture pop-in. Fortunately, PC gamers will be able to get their hands on that functionality as well — as long as they own an Nvidia RTX GPU. The company today revealed “RTX IO,” a suite of technologies that enable “rapid GPU-based loading and game asset decompression.”

This technology will run on Microsoft’s next-generation DirectStorage API, and it will enable “up to” 100x faster drive performance compared to traditional hard drives. Nvidia claims RTX IO can offload much of the work your CPU would ordinarily be doing onto the GPU, which boosts frame rates, speeds up load times, and paves the way for the next generation of open-world games.

“Object pop-in and stutter can be reduced, and high-quality textures can be streamed at incredible rates, so
