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 …

The Mass Market Segment of 3D Graphics Cards Has Been Replenished with the Asus Expedition GTX 1070 Sample

According to several sources, the Asus Co. has introduced a brand-new 3D video card, called Expedition GeForce GTX 1070. The novelty is primarily geared toward customers willing to assemble a productive system and simultaneously to cut costs to the maximum. Reportedly, this graphics card will gain popularity among managers of PC bangs being so widespread in China nowadays.



One should highlight, that the graphics processor of Asus Expedition GTX 1070 is factory overclocked. The base clock equals to 1,607 MHz, and the overclock – to 1,797 MHz. The configuration features 1,920 CUDAs and 8 GB of memory. The manufacturer admits, that 3D Expedition cards undergo a thorough 144 hours testing, including 15 hours of 3DMark checking.


The cooling system of this graphics card is rather simple and is made of a pair of 80 mm fans, an aluminium heatsink and two copper nickel-plated heat pipes. There is no precise information about the PC-board, though, it’s supposed to possess a …

Universal CPU Cooler Scythe Mugen 4 Review

Some hardware pieces disappear after a while of emergence but some serve PC needs for years, always appearing in new incarnations. The latter is true about Mugen series of CPU coolers from Scythe. The success of the very first model, Scythe Mugen, gave rise to the appearance of an updated second version, then the third one, and, finally, the fourth one – Scythe Mugen 4. This cooler is distinguished initially by its universality, supporting all actual CPU sockets (Intel- and AMD-based). For sure, this is not the mere advantage, since it is able to offer much more.



Delivery Kit


Mugen 4 is delivered in a compact-size cardbox, containing a large amount of information about the cooler. The contents will give a buzz to all consumers, due to a list of useful components. Here one might find: a brand mounting kit Hyper Precision Mounting System (H.P.M.S.) that includes a kit of screws, plastic gaskets, a metallic backplate, mounting plates, a clamping plate, four wiry clinches for …
