Qualcomm to Enter Into Contract with GlobalFoundries

Qualcomm, a world-known provider of chips for mobile gadgets, has entered into a contract with GlobalFoundries company with the intention to develop chips based on 28 nm technology. Such information has been voiced by an authoritative Chinese publication Commercial Times, referring to the reliable sources. It is presupposed that the manufacturer will start the first dispatches for Qualcomm in the end of this year. The previously voiced data claimed that Qualcomm had arranged orders of 28 nm chips from UMC with the similar dispatch dates.

The estimated reason for the cooperation with GlobalFoundries is the insufficient delivery of 28 nm chips by TSMC. Moreover, Nvidia is supposedly targeting at the cooperation with one more manufacturer except for the TSMC as well. It should be mentioned that the preliminary memorandum between Qualcomm and GlobalFoundries was concluded in 2010; according to this memorandum, the designer got the access towards 45 nm LP and 28 nm LP technological …

Presentation of ‘Inconceivable’ Graphics Card GeForce GTX 680 iGame

Graphics card from Colorful Technology company has become a real discovery at the crowned Computex 2012 exhibition. The major peculiarity of new GeForce GTX 680 iGame is seen in the integrated gigantic cooler of passive type which is called to ensure the sufficient heat removal. The developers have exceeded all expectations by presenting the graphics cars with such an original design and elaborate framework.

Passive cooler implemented in GeForce GTX 680 iGame consists of two solid aluminum radiators with the copper heat tubes. Those tubes are joined with a jumper which has other six heat tubes. The radiators are localized at both sides of the motherboard. The graphics card itself is of 15 cm in height; this place is dedicated to the nine expansion slots. The accelerator is based on the advanced Kepler architecture and operates under the layout of GK104 chip with Cuda cores. It employs PCI Express 3.0x16 bus and is equipped with GDDR5 memory of 256 bit interface. A couple of …

Three New Nettop Models of NanoPC Series from Foxconn

Foxconn Electronics introduces three new nettops which replenish NanoPC 7000 series. All three, NanoPC AT-7300, NanoPC AT-7500 and NanoPC AT-7700, are claimed to be practically noiseless due to the improved integration and layout base. As scheduled by Foxconn, all the models will become available in March 2013 and will be priced at $390, $480, $600 correspondingly.

These nettops are based on Intel Ivy Bridge platform but are equipped with a bit different CPUs. Thus, NanoPC AT-7300 model accommodates Intel Core i3-3217U processor that operates at 1.8GHz clock frequency; NanoPC AT-7500 model houses Intel Core i5-3317U processor with 1.7GHz clock frequency; NanoPC AT-7700 takes Intel Core i7-3517U processor with 1.9Ghz frequency as the basis.

The integrated motherboard complies with a mobile chipset Intel HM76 Express and features Intel HD Graphics 4000 graphics core. Internal layout of all nettops presupposes the installation of 16GB DDR3 RAM and of additional HDD/SSD drive …
