MS-CH01FV2, a New Mini PC by Mouse, Resembles a Key Breloque

MS-CH01FV2 is a new mini PC from the Mouse Computer Company, which outwardly resembles a breloque, relies on Windows 10 Home OS and costs around 180 USD.



The device operates at the Intel Cherry Trail platform, represented by an energy-effective Atom x5-Z8350 processing unit. This 14 nm chipset possesses 4 compute cores and the Intel HD Graphics 400 accelerator card. The assigned clock rate is 1.44 GHz, the boosted value equals 1.92 GHz. The active cooling system with a small fan disseminates heat.


The specialty offers 2 GB of RAM and the 32 GB flash module (eMMC) for storage. Optionally one can utilize a microSD card. MS-CH01FV2 ensures IEEE 802.11ac Wi-Fi wireless connection and features an HDMI interface, an embedded Bluetooth 4.1 + LE controller, alongside with USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports.


The fob computer weighs about 60 g only and is of 113 × 39 × 13 mm dimensions.

AMD FX-8300 is Already in Retail Trade

Despite the fact that AMD initially scheduled the official release of FX-8300 for 29 December, this CPU can already be found in some Japanese retail stores. Such sudden appearance in free sale allows all potential consumers to get assured in all claimed specifications. Thus, FX-8300 is an eight-core chip of the new generation that is characterized by 95W TDP level. This is a kind of a breakthrough, since its Vishera companions, FX-8350 and FX-8320, consume up to 125W power.



The reduction of power consumption is explained by the decrease of CPU clock frequencies and nominal voltage showings. Hence, the nominal clock frequency recorded with this CPU model makes up 3.3GHz, while in Turbo mode the frequency rises to 3.6GHz. Some resources state that FX-8300 is able to overclock up to 4.2GHz, however, this info is not vindicated so far. This chip is developed specifically for Socket AM3+.


Taking into account such parameters, analysts feel difficulty in predicting the future of …

Gigabyte Debuts with Socket AM1 Motherboards

Gigabyte is the first among AMD’s partners to introduce proprietary motherboards for an upcoming Socket AM1 platform. Initially the AM1 series will comprise only two models: the GA-AM1M-S2P and the GA-AM1M-S2H. Both feature micro-ATX form-factor and are supposed to house AMD Athlon/Sempron APUs. They employ two DIMM slots for the integration of up to 32 GB DDR3 memory with 1600 MHz frequency. The release is scheduled for March when the platform is officially introduced.



Gigabyte motherboards have got two SATA III 6 Gb/sec ports for the expansion of storage, one PCIe 2.0 x16, one PCIe x1 and one PCI connector for the connection of add-ons. Network functional consists of gigabit controller from Realtek, whereas audio functional is laid upon 7.1-channel HAD Realtek ALC 887 codec.


The differentiation between the two models lies in the set of internal/external interfaces. Hence, the GA-AM1M-S2P comes with two PS/2 ports, one D-Sub port, four USB ports (3.0 + 2.0), one RJ-45, …
