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 …

ASRock Showcases Fatal1ty Z170 Gaming-ITX Motherboard

ASRock is about to launch a small-sized gaming mainboard based on Z170 chipset. The Fatal1ty Z170 Gaming-ITX is developed in mini-ITX form-factor to fit compact PC systems. The model is differentiated by the implementation of High Density Glass Fabric PCB design that is called to absolutely eliminate the possibility of short circuit in case of prolonged humidity. The board also strikes the eye by an outstanding black-and-red styling.



ASRock Fatal1ty Z170 Gaming-ITX supports 6th-gen Intel LGA1151 CPUs. The PCB involves 8-phase VRM system and high-quality hardware. The range of included components boasts premium power chokes 60A, dual-stack MOSETs and supreme 12K Nichicon capacitors with 12000 hours lifespan. The model features a couple of slots for DDR4-4000 MHz memory modules, a single PCI-e 3.0 x16 slot, one mini-PCI-e slot, two SATA III ports, and one SATA Express port.


This motherboard is known to support configurations with three monitors. To ensure the maximal …

OWC Refreshes Its Line of Portable Storage Devices

OWC, a developer and supplier of hardware solutions, has recently complemented its line of portable storage devices with a new model Mercury On-the-Go Pro. The preliminary data provided by the company claims that the new product will be based on triple interface template and will support USB 3.0 interface. However, this does not mean that the device won't be able to support USB 2.0 interface, since it will be backwards compatible with USB 3.0.



OWC Mercury On-the-Go Pro storage will be delivered in a refined transparent casing made of acryl. The nominal dimensions are 140x89x25 mm. The software kit will involve various applets for the backup of data (NovaBackup, Data Backup 3, Carbon Copy Cloner), as well as, a dedicated program for the monitoring over the storage condition and optimization of drives' performance.


The lineup of products will be represented by different modifications of the drives. Thereby, each customer will receive a chance to choose among several versions …
