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 …

ECS Develops Haswell-Compatible Motherboard Z87H3-A2X Extreme

At the cusp of an official release of Intel’s fourth generation processors each hardware designer tries to elaborate new Haswell-compatible components. Motherboard manufacturers are probably the ones to introduce the lion’s share of such products. ECS is not an exception. According to the data provided by a reputable source, ECS is soon going to release its newest prime-class board codenamed Z87H3-A2X Extreme. The first meeting with the new-comer is planned within the boundaries of Computex 2013 exhibition taking place in June.

As seen from the codename, ECS Z87H3-A2X Extreme is based on Intel Z87 Express chipset covered by a black-and-red heatsink. The model employs full-sized printed circuit board, Socket LGA1150, and 12-phase VRM for CPU power supply with gold-plate solid-state capacitors. Power subsystem elements are cooled down by a voluminous CoolTech V heatsink. This heatsink is connected with a chipset one by means of a nickel-plated copper heat pipe.

A Few Days Left till the Launch of E2080HSD from iiyama

Iiyama Corp., a renowned Japanese supplier of TV and PC displays, is going to launch a new 20-inch monitor in several days. Codenamed E2080HSD, a new product extends ProLite series and features 478x204x351 mm dimensions. The monitor is notable by outstanding saving characteristics, since it consumes 35% less power than analogous displays from other suppliers: the level of power consumption does not exceed the index of 16W in operational mode, and on conditions of EcoMode activation, this level might be reduced at 15% more.

Monitor iiyama ProLite E2080HSD is based on TN panel type with white LED light. Featuring 20-inch display, it differentiates itself by 1600x900 resolution, 250 cd/m2 brightness, 5 ms array response time, and 1000:1 static contrast index. Horizontal and vertical viewing angles differ a bit from other similar displays and equal to 85 and 80 degrees correspondingly.

The model is equipped with two stereo speakers (1W each), a single DVI and D-Sub video …
