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 …

Dell Teases a Couple of IPS Monitors: P2417H & P2717H

Dell is about to launch a pair of monitors targeting office PC systems as well as standard home multimedia systems. The P2417H (24-inch display) and the P2717H (27-inch display) are fitted with a high-quality IPS panel with an integrated LED backlight. Both models feature 16:9 aspect ratio and Full HD resolution – 1920x1080 pixels.



The implemented array offers 6 ms response time in GtG environment. The top brightness index makes up 250 & 300 cd/m2 respectively. Both new-comers share the widest possible viewing angles (178/178 degrees) and are able to display up to 16.7 million colors. Static contract index equals to 1000:1, whereas dynamic ratio approximates 4M:1.


Dell P2417H and Dell P2717H boast a rich inventory of external interfaces: a pair of USB 2.0 ports, the same number of USB 3.0 ports, one DisplayPort 1.2, one HDMI 1.4 port, and one analogue D-Sub port. The first display is thought to consume 19 W power, while its companion is known to consume 23 W power.

ASRock Introduces Its Upgraded DeskMini PCs

The ASRock Co. has brought to the CES 2017 event its upgraded RX and GTX lines DeskMini PCs.



Details are obscure; however, general info is available. It is known, for example, that the dimensions of these devices are 210 х 137.5 х 81.9 mm. The motherboards utilized are of Mini-STX form factor, and the supposed CPUs are of the Kaby Lake generation.


The highest RAM capacity of these models equals to 32 GB; and there’s a possibility to embed drives due to the 2 SATA connectors and 3 M.2 slots. Such ports as USB 3.0 (x3), USB 2.0 (x2), HDMI (x2), DisplayPort, Mini DisplayPort, Thunderbolt 3 and Gigabit Ethernet deliver extra convenience.


These novelties can be equipped with either GeForce GTX 1060 or Radeon RX 460, RX 470, RX 480 (MXM) graphics cards. At the same time, the TDP rate should not exceed 120 W.


Therefore, we can assume that ASRock will produce fully gaming and rather effective VR compatible compact PCs.
