The growth of laptop shipments in the second quarter was 5%

Global laptop shipments have faced with glut stocks in March and a weakening global economy in May. That caused the situation of reaching a growth of supply in the second quarter of the year only for 5% compared with the previous, and it fell by 1.8% compared with this period year ago. Shipments totalled just over 50 million units, according to analysts.



Numbers of Acer and Lenovo laptop shipments were at the average level on the world market in comparison the first quarter of the year. Shipments of mobile PCs from HP, Dell and Toshiba have fallen to 4-7%. Most of all with the increase of supply by 36% managed its shipment the ASUS Company.


It is interesting that HP may soon lose its title of leader in the laptop market — China's Lenovo breathes down its neck, lagging behind only with 500,000 units. ASUS surpassed Dell, becoming the fourth largest producer of mobile PCs in the world with a share of 11.3%, and Apple and Samsung are in the seventh and eighth places …

Greeting Affordable Brix GB-BPCE-3350 Mini-PC from Gigabyte

Gigabyte has surfaced a budget-oriented mini-PC of Brix series, entitled Brix GB-BPCE-3350. The new-comer is designed on Intel Apollo Lake CPU (14 nm) and an integrated Intel HD Graphics 500 graphics core. The Intel Celeron N3350 operates at 1.1 GHz frequency but might be overclocked up to 2.4 GHz (TDP – 6 W). The GPU runs at 200-650 MHz frequency.



Gigabyte Brix GB-BPCE-3350 comes with a pair of SO-DIMM DDR3L memory modules which operate at 1866 MHz frequency (maximum of 8 GB). Storage subsystem is introduced by a single SATA III port and microSD card-reader. The availability of a single M.2 2230 slot ensures the model’s expansion facilities. Initially, this slot is occupied by Wi-Fi + Bluetooth adapter (Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 3168).


To continue, this mini-PC employs a couple of controllers – Realtek ALC255 & Realtek RTL8111HD – which take care of audio and network subsystems. The front I/O panel offers a pair of USB 3.0 ports, one D-Sub port and one 3.5-mm …

Palit Announces an Overclocked GTX 760 JetStream Graphics Card

Palit has replenished its line of gaming graphics adapters with a new model, codenamed Palit GeForce GTX 760 JetStream. It is differentiated by an original design of the PCB, a highly-efficient JetStream cooling system, and a factory overclocking. Outstanding overclocking potential is secured by the implementation of high-quality components, such as DrMOS MOSFET transistors.



The new-comer employs PCI Express 3.0 x16 interface and is based on GK104 GPU (28 nm Kepler microarchitecture). The core consists of 1152 stream processors, 32 ROPs and 96 TMUs. It runs at an overclocked frequency of 1072 MHz, but on activating GPU Boost technology, this index rises to 1137 MHz high. Such showings exceed the reference parameters at about 10%.


To continue, this graphics card is equipped with 2 GB of GDDR5 memory type that runs also at heightened frequencies. Hence, the nominal clock frequency makes up 1550 MHz, while GPU Boost increases this index to 6200 MHz. Memory subsystem employs …
