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 …

SCION-32 Combines a PC and a Monitor in Itself

The E-BLUE company has introduced an interesting solution at the CES 2017 exhibition in Las Vegas, called SCION-32. This is the first Hybrid-Tower monitor and simultaneously an AIO computer with prospects for upgrading.



This 32-inch product has a QHD 2,560 × 1,440 pixels resolution and is backlit on the sides.


The SCION-32 system allows to install Micro-ATX and Mini-ATX motherboards with a respective CPU. There is enough space for two standard drives. The maximum length of the discrete graphics to be used is unknown, however we can assume, that there will be no problem with choosing an optimal variant, taking into account the abundance of video adapters on the market.


This device will be available this quarter, though the price has not been voiced yet.

Noctua NH-D9L Review

So let’s review an alternative cooling system Noctua NH-D9L which is in many ways similar to the previously released Noctua NH-U9S. It is at least attractive because it is a miniature copy of Noctua NH-D15. But the question is: why was it needed to release two models with similar parameters and effectiveness in the 92mm fan cooler segment, which is not the most popular one.


Equipment

Packaging is on the highest level traditional for Noctua. All the necessary information is presented on the box sides. The following components are included in addition to a radiator and a fan:

• reinforcement plate for Intel LGA115h sockets; • mounting studs for Intel LGA2011 and LGA 2011-3 sockets; • mounting feet and plastic stands for the Intel sockets; • mounting feet, plastic stands and screws for the AMD sockets; • knurled nuts to secure the feet on the Intel sockets; • additional brackets for mounting the second fan; • silicone gaskets for fans; • crosshead …
