Sempron X2 198 (2.5GHz) was seen in the budget desktop HP Pavilion p6-1152cx, p6-1159cx, p6-1230cx and p6-1231cx. This CPU includes two core architectures AMD K10.5, 2x512 KB cache of second level and dual-channel DDR3-1600. The TDP level is 65W.

Athlon II X2 221 clock frequency is 2.8 GHz. Other characteristics of processor are the same as in the lower Sempron X2 198. Both models support 64-bit code, virtualization, AMD-V and instructions even SSE4a. Athlon II X2 …

TP-Link to Launch Wireless Dual-Band TL-WDR4300

TP-Link, a renowned supplier of wired and wireless network solutions, is going to release a new wireless dual-band router model, codenamed TL-WDR4300. The launch of the new product is scheduled for the end of September. This router will be characterized by an optimized efficiency and simultaneous employment of two band frequencies.

The combination of two bands promoted for the increase of speed to 450 Mb/sec at 5 GHz frequency and 300 Mb/sec at 2.4 GHz frequency. As a result, the overall bandwidth approximates 750 Mb/sec. This allows the user to enable up to a dozen of channel-sensitive applications and provide for their quick operation.

TL-WDR4300 is equipped with a couple of USB 2.0 ports which are predetermined to organize a joint access towards files, media data or printers, and enable a joint access of several PCs via local network by means of FTP-server. This way, the user will get permanent access towards the necessary data. This model is able to support QoS on IP …
