ARM Readies Cortex-A72 and Mali-T880 for Mobile Devices

ARM has just announced a series of solutions for the upcoming next-generation mobile SoC. The most notable developments are Cortex-A72 processor and Mali-T880 graphics. According to the manufacturer, both components will be interconnected within SoC by means of CoreLink – CCI-500. The launch of new items is scheduled for 2016. Rockchip, MediaTek and HiSilicon are among the companies to integrate both elaborations into their products.

It should be noted that Cortex- A72 is a successor of Cortex-A57, taking analogous 64-bit operations but demonstrating three times higher performance. The new-comer will be designed under 16 nm FinFET+ technological process. Its layout corresponds to big.LITTLE framework requirements; this promotes for its combination with other ARM cores.

As far as Mali-T880 GPU is concerned, it provides for 1.8 response time increase if compared with the Mali-T760 model. Herewith, its power consumption is reduced by 40%. Moreover, this GPU might support 4K …

AOC Takes Pride in a Curved C3583FQ Monitor

AOC is about to release a quite extraordinary monitor – the C3583FQ. This 35-inch curved model can’t boast high resolution index (2560x1080), although it is sure to provide the best image quality without the necessity to pair it with the top-tier graphics card. Relatively big size does not allow for many adjustments; yet, it’s possible to change the slope angle.

AOC C3583FQ is based on AMVA panel with WLED backlight. It ensures the best-in-class specifications: 2000:1 – static contrast, maximal brightness – 300 cd/m2, viewing angles – 178/178 degrees, refresh rate – 48-146 Hz, response time – 5 ms. The radius of curvature does not prevent the full-scale displaying of the developments.

The monitor comes equipped with a pair of 5 W speakers, a pair of 3.5-mm audio ports and five video ports: one DVI, two DisplayPort 1.2+, two HDMI 1.4 with MHL support. The rear panel features VESA bracket to facilitate with wall mounting options. In addition, the new-comer …

CPU Cooler SilverStone NT06-PRO Review

The tendency of assembling small-sized but efficient system units is becoming more apparent among all PC users. Nowadays the extensive occurrence of mini-tower chassis and mini-ITX motherboards requires the employment of corresponding pocket-size CPU coolers. Unfortunately, the latter are practically a rarity, however the demand for small but highly productive coolers is rising on daily basis. SilverStone is one of the few companies that elaborated such kind of products. Its latest NT06-PRO combines all advantages each full-sized model has and is ready to provide a truly efficient cooling.

Design and Framework

SilverStone NT06-PRO is a worthy representative of Nitrogen series. It features a bit unusual design with horizontal orientation. It consists of a voluminous heatsink, counting fifty-two aluminum plates, six C-shape heatpipes, and one fan, mounted underneath the heatsink. Such framework ensures a stable cooling of motherboard nodes and CPU environment. All aluminum …
