Vivitek Qumi HD LED Pocket Projector, Only $500

Vivitek has announced that it will be shipping its gorgeous looking Qumi HD and 3D pocket projectors. The projectors were originally set to ship last month but never went through. You can buy this awesome projector now for just $499, a steal when it comes to projectors.

The Qumi will weigh just 1.4 pounds and its the first 3D ready pocket projector. The machine uses Texas Instruments DLP Link technology, and has touch sensitive buttons with a very sleek design. The device ships in either black or white and has a resolution of 1280 x 800, giving it 720p capability.

AMD 9-Series Motherboard Goes Live

AMD is set to launch its 9-series chipset this week, in efforts to bring next-gen technology to computer enthusiasts around the world. The new chipset was designed to complement AMD’s Scorpius desktop platform, a platform that will feature the 8-core “Zambezi” processor and support AMD Radeon HD6000 series graphics cards.

The 9-series chipset will be the first to support AMD’s AM3+ socket processors, as well as offer backwards compatibility with earlier generations.

Micron’s RealSSD P320h- Fastest In The Industry

Micron has recently introduced the world’s fastest enterprise solid state drive, the RealSSD P320h. The drive uses a single PCI Express slot and comes in 350GB and 700GB capacities. The new drives use 34nm single-level cell (SLC) NAND flash memory chips, offering up to 3GB/s of sustained data throughput, which is more than double that of its nearest competitor.

Storage drives are typically measured in terms of input/output operations per second, or termed, IOPS. Micron rates its P320h line at up to 750,000 IOPS for its read speed and up to 341,000 IOPS for its write speed. Micron claims that its IOPs speed is equivalent to what an Exchange server would need to support over 1.5 million Outlook users.

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.

HP Unleashes Shiny New Pavilion Notebooks

Hewlett-Packard quietly unleashed its new lineup up shiny Pavilion notebooks. The new notebooks feature Intel’s latest and greatest, Sandy Bridge processors. The new laptop is called the Pavilion G6S and features a vibrant but classy color and contains a 15.6″ (1366 by 768 resolution) and gives consumers a choice between the Core i3, Core i5, or Core i7 processors.

Microsoft’s Influence On Major Mobile Companies

Nokia is expected to launch 12 new Windows phones next year and according to Forbes, a couple of them will offer dual-core processors. A couple of the dual-core phones will be powered by ST-Ericsson’s U8500 system-on-a-chip (not to be confused with ‘hotdog-on-a-stick’) package, with full support for the ARM Cortex-A9 dual-core processors.

Nokia is also said to have already begun developing a Windows Phone, despite the expected launch date in 2012. Microsoft has also asked HTC, LG, Samsung, and Dell to utilize the same chipsets, display sizes, and camera MP number to give consumers a consistent experience with Windows Phone 7 across devices.

Full HD On A 4.8″ Screen- Check It Out

Samsung and LG are working in consortium to pack extra pixels into tablet-sized screens for a very high-density pixel ratio. Last year, Ortus Technologies demonstrated a 4.8-inch Full HD LCD that was able to manage a 1920 x 1080 458ppi into a panel that provided images far sharper than iPhone 4’s Retina Display. Ortus Technologies is back to show us the upgraded display in 3D.

The new display uses an Arisawa Xpol polarizer film that splits the image into a set of left eye images and a set of right eye images. The viewer gives up some vertical resolution in exchange…

Nvidia Swallows Icera For $367M

We have just heard that Nvidia has swallowed Icera for $367 million dollars. This move gets Nvidia’s foot in the door for baseband and radio chips, leaving some to guess that perhaps Nvidia is thinking of making its own phone. With the Icera acquisition, Nvidia will now be able to combine high-end processors, with cell phone communications.

Nvidia believes that Icera can help it double its revenue from each mobile device.

The New Toshiba Dynabook With Glasses-Free 3D Technology

If you’ve been craving something new in a laptop, look no more. The latest Dynabook has just been revealed, and it looks more promising than ever. The T851/D8CR is a full featurered notebook with a 15.6-inch Full HD laptop and offeres Super View 3D Glasses-Free technology with a face tracking system.

What does this all mean? The laptop can produce both 2D and 3D images simultaneously, without the need for goofy looking glasses. Yes, I am a little surprised too after all the complaints with the Nintendo 3DS but being that this device does not generate 3D view at all times, I think users will not have too hard of a time to adapt.

AMD Will Support USB 3.0!

Although USB 3.0 can be found on many computers and notebooks today, they are all supported by third party controllers because neither Intel nor AMD currently offer support for USB 3.0 in their chipsets. Thankfully AMD has found it’s niche, even if temporarily, because the company will now offer USB 3.0 support for their chipsets.

AMD will be working on USB3.0 support for the upcoming A75 and A70M Fusion chipsets. Phil Hughes from AMD told CNET that the chipsets are shipping today. We can expect that computers and notebooks with AMD power and USB 3.0 will be hitting shelves by next month at the latest. This of course will give Intel something to sweat about…
