Gigabyte Debuts with Mini-ITX Motherboard C1007UN-D

Gigabyte has officially introduced a new motherboard model C1007UN-D, developed in mini-ITX form-factor. As seen from the dimensions, the novice is intended to be employed within small-sized multimedia or industrial systems. Chipset Intel NM70 with the integrated two-core ULV processor Intel Celeron 1007U are considered to be the heart of the board. The CPU is cooled down by a compact active cooling system which involves an aluminum heatsink and a small fan.

Video subsystem is represented by an integrated graphics core that belongs to Intel HD Graphics series. The core runs at the nominal 350 MHz clock frequency, however this index might be dynamically increased up to 1000 MHz. Audio subsystem is realized by means of Realtek ALC887 controller that supports 7.1-channel sounding. Network facilities (LAN) are ensured due to a pair of gigabit controllers elaborated by Realtek.

To continue, memory subsystem consists of two DIMM slots which support up to 8 GB modules of DDR3-1333 …

Intel Claims Its Clover Trail More Efficient than Tegra 3

The stonewall in the tablet and mobile CPU segment is gradually mounting, with Intel and Nvidia increasing their influence and rivalry. Hence, Intel's developers claim that its latest tablet processor, two-core Atom Clover Trail, surpasses Nvidia's Tegra 3 in both performance and power consumption. To be precise, Clover Trail proves to be more efficient in a range of applications, but at the same time, it consumes power twice less than its counterpart. To exemplify such claims, Intel takes Imagination Technologies graphics that consumes less power than Tegra 3.

Numerous testing results conducted by Intel and some leading IT analysts demonstrate that Tegra 3 with four main cores and one additional core is slower that Clover Trail. Testing of performance and power consumption has been held on Microsoft Surface RT with Tegra 3 chip and Windows 8 tablet with Clover Trail chip. Nevertheless, Intel hasn't conducted any comparison in mobile OS from Google.
