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 …

External HDD Adata DashDrive Durable HD710 Review

The situation in the segment of external hard drives can nowadays be viewed twofold. On the one hand, the customers are able to choose the device according to all their requirements, as the range of HDD counts up hundreds of high-end and budgetary models. On the other hand, such wide spectrum of devices triggers violent competition among manufacturers which would like to win their customers by unique design or new developments in framework. Adata decided to win its customers by the unusual design, as well as unmatched durability and reliability. Thus, Adata DashDrive Durable HD710 series is distinguished by both, design and performance.



General Peculiarities and Layout


Adata HD710 is attributed to the protected external HDs which comply with the dust-, water-, and moisture protectability international standards. Those standards usually include a few dozens of sub-standards and research methods which allow the manufacturer to test their products in different conditions. …
