Sandisk Ultra Solid State Drive (SSD)

To store persistent data in your computers, SanDisk is back by unveiling the new Solid State Drive (SSD). This new SSD (dubbed, Ultra) can increase performance of your system by consuming less power of the computer. It will definitely increase battery life of a laptop as it consumes less power.

Different from ordinary hard Disk Drives (HDD) which consumes high power and are electromagnetic devices, it retains data in nonvolatile memory chips. As it has no moving parts like HDD where Data is stored in Spinning Disks, there is a smaller chance of damaging it.

Macbook Battery Firmware Vulnerability Revealed

Hacking ain’t a new thing but hackers are those stubborn fellas who constantly search for hitting upon something like a venerability, a backdoor, a leak or something related.

Apple’s Mac OS is widely considered to be a robust piece of code persistent against viruses and virus makers.But it remains no more unexposed…

IBM HPC Cloud Solutions For Maximizing Profits

IBM seeks to help companies use their high-performance computers more efficiently with new software that links separate pools of resources into a single private cloud. Usually, organizations with intense engineering operations have separate server farms used by individual groups of engineers, leaving computing resources unused.

With this in mind, IBM is currently making HPC Management Suite for Cloud software available after having just used it internally. Over 3,000 engineers around the world shared resources as they developed the POWER7 processor family, claiming to have cut costs in half and reduced the design cycle by six months as a result of the software.

QuadCore Snapdragon, Due Early Next Year

Qualcomm spilled the beans on its next-generation Snapdragon chips at the Taiwan computer show, Computex 2011. The company itself, said that consumers can expect to see dual-core Snapdragon chips for Windows on ARM-based platforms first (mainly tablets), and eventually will be introduced to the 3G/LTE hybrid dual-core MSM8930, capable of clock speeds of up to 2.5GHz.

Now here’s where the QuadCore news comes in, the four-core APQ8064 chipset is due in the first half 2012 and will feature up to 2.5GHz *per core,

Texas Instruments Introduces OMAP4470, Not a Robot

Texas Instruments has just announced another member of the OMAP 4 family, and it’s a boy! Meet the OMAP4470, a 1.8GHz ARM processor. The new chip is powered by two 1GHz ARM Cortex A-9 MPCore engines, and two 266MHz ARM Cortex-M3 cores.

Texas Instruments believes that the multi-core structure will allow for faster web browsing and more efficient power usage. The goal is to compete with Nvidia’s quad core chips and Intel’s latest Sandy Bridge line. While some may think this goal is a bit far fetched, you have to commend Texas Instruments for having such a goal!

New Intel Processors Designed For Macbook Air?

It looks like Intel is working on some ultra-low voltage processors that are based on the Sandy Bridge core and would be the perfect match for the MacBook Air. According to a leak, the Core i5 and i7 processors will be getting a boost. The 1.4GHz cpu will be getting raised to 1.6GHz. The Core i5 2557M will run at 1.7GHz with a Turbo Boost to 2.7GHz, and the Core i7 models would each get a boost of 100MHz in processing power and Turbo Boost of up to 2.9GHz of power.

Each of the processors will be dual-core, Hyperthreaded processors with graphics cores ranging from 350MHz to 1.2GHz with full throttle. Each of the chips are also expected to arrive later this year.

VIA Releases First QuadCore Chip

While Intel and AMD dominate the majority of the computer processing market, VIA is still a key player in the system. VIA chips are typically used on smaller, lower cost devices where either budget or power concerns are key issues. The newest VIA chip is the world’s lowest power quad-core x86 processor and is named QuadCore. The brand new chip will be arriving in June of this year and will be a very efficient muti-core architecture chip that provides multi-threaded performance.

VIA Rolls Out Two New Chips

VIA Technologies make computer chips for power efficient x86 processor platforms. The company announced on Friday that it will be rolling out a new line of low power dual core VIA Nano X2 Series processors at the ESC (Embedded System Conference) in San Jose.

The E-series processors are extremely power efficient and feature dual-core architecture, specifically designed for 86-bit and x86 embedded system applications. The models to be released will be a 1.2GHz and a 1.6GHz chip and both processors come with a seven year warranty.

Large CMOS Chip Designed To Save Lives

United Kingdom’s University of Lincoln has created a slim 12.8cm squared CMOS chip that is 200 times bigger than that of a laptop of PC chip. The CMOS chip is called Dynamite and 12.8cm is just about the biggest you can make a CMOS imaging chip on a standard 20cm wafer. CMOS stands for Complementary metal–oxide–semiconductor.

AMD Introduces Phenom II 980 Black Edition

As we have seen earlier, Intel is stepping up its game in the processing market, but what about AMD? Advanced Micro Devices, based in Sunnyvale California is the well known rival to Intel. They will be competing against Intel’s fastest chip with the new AMD Phenom II 980 Black Edition Desktop microprocessor. This central processing unit will be perfect for avid gamers or those who stress over frame rates.
