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 …

OCZ Announces the Release of Agility4

OCZ company representatives have proudly announced the release of their new SSD child of Agility 4 series. Agility4 series embraces four models which correspond to the 64 GB, 128 GB, 256 GB, and 512 GB volume capacity parameters. Agility4 developers claim that their new series is the balance of performance, speed and reliability at the same time.



The new series is based on Indilinx Everest 2 controller and is equipped with SATA III interface. SSD Agility4 is built on flash-memory chips of MLC NAND type which are destined to sustain up to 2 million hours of fail-proof operability. These chips support TRIM and SMART technologies and are sure to involve ECC option to monitor and remove all detected errors. The other peculiar feature of Agility4 SSDs is the availability of DRAM cache-memory of 1 GB volume capacity. In addition, SSDs have an integrated option of automatic encoding according to AES algorithm.


It should be mentioned that each individual model in a series proves …

GeIL Launches Super Luce DDR4 RAM

GeIL has replenished the inventory of DDR4 RAM items with its own set of memory modules. Entitled Super Luce, the new-comers are targeting gaming desktop PCs as well as enthusiast platforms. All kits are furnished with an uncommon iLuce Thermal backlight on the basis of white, red and blue lights. Along with a decorative mission, this backlight serves informational means: the higher the temperature of the system is, the brighter and more regular the light illuminates.



To continue, the backlight features five levels of flickering. The first level produces 13 twinkles per minute when the temperature is under 40 degrees; when the temperature rises to 40-50 degrees the number of twinkles increases to 60 per minute; 45-50 degrees enable 80 twinkles per minute, 120 twinkles are measures on 50-55 degrees, and finally, when thermal level achieves 55 and higher degrees the amount of twinkles jumps to 200 per minute.


GeIL Super Luce is compatible with Intel Haswell-E platform, …
