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 …

Greeting a Pair of NAS Series from Seagate

Seagate has geared up a surprise for all devotees of Small Office Home Office (SOHO) network storage solutions. Delivering NAS and NAS Pro series, the company tried to comply with the customers’ needs for compact but voluminous storage for integral data with an access via the network cable. Both lineups are based on an updated NAS OS 4 that offers a more user-friendly graphics interface and improved features on setup.

Seagate NAS series comes in two versions: with two and four drive bays for the installation of 3.5-inch SATA HHDs. Both models are based on Marvell ARM chip that runs at 1.2 GHz; it is complemented with 512 MB RAM. In its turn, Seagate NAS Pro additionally involves a version with six drive bays. The model’s hardware base employs Intel Atom C2000 CPU and 2 GB RAM, which in an assemblage provide for a better efficiency.

It’s worth noting that all the models are furnished with dedicated drives up to 5 TB capacity from Seagate NAS series. They are estimated …

Meet Self-Purified D.F.Vegas Fans from Enermax

Enermax has enlarged its lineup of fans with D.F.Vegas series. The series consists of two models: the D.F.Vegas & the D.F.Vegas Duo. The key differentiation between the two solutions lies in the current intensity as well as LED backlights. The first new-comer is equipped with 12 blue diodes, while the second model houses 12 red and 12 green diodes.

Enermax D.F.Vegas fans boast the implementation of self-purification technology – Dust Free Rotation (DFR). During the first ten seconds of operation the fan rotates contrary clockwise and then returns to standard rotational mode. That is how dust and litter is removed from the blades. If there is a need in manual cleansing, the blades can be easily detached.

Both fans are designed on Twister Bearing with MTBF index of 160 thousand hours. The frame accommodates a single 4-pin connector which supports PWM technology. Hence, it’s possible to limit the maximal rotation speed by 1100/1300/1500 RPM by means of a dedicated …
