Ultrabook Not Be Superhero?

Intel aggressively promote thin laptop “Ultrabook” which recently has begun equipped with a touch screen. Products “2-in-1 ‘was introduced, with various forms of” magic “that can be changed from laptop to tablet and vice versa.

But all of that as not enough to subvert the glory of Apple’s MacBook Air as the pioneer and the most sought after consumer thin laptops, at least for the U.S. market.

In Uncle Sam’s, as revealed by research agency NPD report cited by Cnet, controlled 56 percent of the MacBook Air slim laptop sales during the first five months of 2013.

The remaining 44 percent is divided between partners-manufacturers Intel Ultrabook.

The latest generation MacBook Air (model 2013) also received positive feedback thanks to the durability of the battery reaches a dozen hours and expected to help maintain the market dominance of these devices in a thin laptop.

It should be noted that the battery life of the MacBook Air in 2013 made ​​possible by the Core 4th Generation of Intel. Thus, the processor manufacturers also benefit from the success of the MacBook Air.

But stronghold Windows laptop was not keep silent. In last week’s Build conference, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer said that the hybrid device (2-in-1) with touch screen feature will eliminate the need to carry laptops and tablets separately.

On the other hand, Apple considers that the touchscreen is more suitable to be applied to the iPad than a laptop. Most consumers seem to agree.

Not to be outdone, Ready to Introduce Huawei K3V3 Octa Core Processor newest

MediaTek has just introduced its newest processor Octa Core MT6592. And as same-same company based in China, Huawei did not want to miss. An anonymous source who claimed close to Huawei Huawei revealed that the party has completed the development of the Octa core processors.

The source said that the latest generation K3V3 processor has the ability to run in high temperatures as well as cooling the components inside. By doing so, this processor also increases the standby time of the device.

Previously, CEO of Huawei, Richard Yu said that they will soon introduce the latest K3V3 Octa core processors in the second half of 2013.

Yu said that the processor will have a speed of 1.8GHz and a Mali GPU with 28nm technology in the manufacturing process. This processor is also a processor based on the ARM Cortex A15 architecture.

ASUS PQ321Q UltraHD Monitor Review: Living with a 31.5-inch 4K Desktop Display

Many consider me to be a 4K hater. The past few trade shows I’ve attended have been pushing it on consumers to replace their TVs, but I see less value in it. When it comes to a computer display, it is a different game. Unlike a 50” TV, we sit close to our monitors, even if they are 30” in size. We also have no worries about a lack of native content, since everything is rendered on the fly and native. There are no issues with the lack of HDMI 2.0, as DisplayPort 1.2 can drive a 3840×2160 screen at 60 Hz.

When it comes to 4K on the desktop, my main question is: how much difference will I see? ASUS is one of the first with a HiDPI display in the PQ321Q. While not truly 4K, it is a 3840×2160 LCD display that can accept an Ultra High Definition (UHD) signal over HDMI and DisplayPort. It also clocks in at a wallet-stretching $3,500 right now. The question is, are we seeing the future with displays here, or are we seeing a niche product?

What does 4K/UHD/HiDPI bring to the desktop? We’ve seen it for a few years now in smartphones and tablets, making their smaller screens more usable for reading and general work. My initial thought is more desktop space, as that is what it has meant before. With a 32” monitor and a pixel density this high, running it without any DPI scaling leads to a desktop where reading text is a huge pain. Instead I believe most users will opt for DPI scaling so elements are larger and easier to read. Now you have something similar to the Retina screen on the iPhone: No more desktop space compared to a 2560×1440 monitor, but one that is razor sharp and easier to look at.

To get to this pixel density, ASUS has relied upon a panel from Sharp that uses IGZO technology. IGZO (Indium gallium zinc oxide) is a material that replaces amorphous silicon for the active layer of an LCD screen. The main benefit is higher electron mobility that allows for faster reacting, smaller pixels. We have seen non-IGZO panels in smartphones with higher pixel densities, but we don’t have any other current desktop LCDs that offer a higher pixel density than this ASUS display. IGZO also allows for a wide viewing angle.

Heat Sink Design “Gahar” from Cooler Master

TAIWAN – For fans of PC assembling, hardware component selection would be kept. One important component to keep the processor temperature is kept cool by using a CPU fan.

Cooler Master, a Taiwanese hardware manufacturer announced a new CPU fan with a futuristic design. Reported Hardware.info, Sunday (07/21/2013), the cooling fan by the name GTS V8 comes with more impressive design.

This cooling technology based on the Horizontal Vapor Chamber (HVC), who appeared with eight heatpipes measuring 6 mm. The device is capable of transferring up to 250 watts of heat to three separate aluminum heatsink.

Heatsink will keep cool thanks to the two measuring 140 mm PWM fan in a configuration called ‘push-pull’ (push-pull). Cooler Master claims to parts of the fan case will be able to last longer.

By reducing friction, must endure V8 GTS 160 thousand hours at speeds between 600 and 1600 rpm. GTS V8 has a dimension of 154 x 149.8 x 166.5 mm and weighs 1140 grams.

ASUS’ RAIDR Express PCI-e SSD is compatible with both legacy and UEFI BIOS

These days, it’s fairly easy to find a PCI Express-based SSD to transform one’s desktop — Angelbird, Fusion-io, Micron and ASUS will sell you one, just to name a few. That said, the last of those three has just revealed a new entrant that will certainly catch the eye of many, as the RAIDR Express claims to be the first PCI-e SSD to be compatible with both legacy and UEFI BIOS. The so-called DuoMode feature is joined by 240GB of storage space, sequential 830MB/s read and 810MB/s write speeds and a reported 620,000 hours mean time between failure (MTBF).

You’ll also find the latest LSI SandForce controller, Toshiba-built 19nm MLC flash, and 100,000 4K read/write input/output operations per second (IOPS). The bundled RAMDisk utility allows users to dedicate up to 80 percent of a computer’s available RAM for use as a high-speed virtual drive, and if you needed any further proof that it’s fast, look no further than in the video after the break. Curiously, ASUS isn’t talking pricing just yet, but it should start shipping in the very near future.
