It’s always a nuisance figuring out what you need to be upgrading to when the time comes.  Given the number of types available it takes a fair bit of research even to understand which ones are the candidates.  The article linked below simplifies it to this:

  • CPU (configuration), usually linked to a corresponding detailed review;
  • Number of cores/threads;
  • Normal core clock rate in GHz (this isn’t crucial anymore, but since many of you have requested it, here you go);
  • Motherboard used in tests;
  • RAM used in tests;
  • Link to some real-time prices.

Just when you thought your Quad core processor was man enough, it appears we are 2 months away from chips with 6…

Three processors from AMD, the Phenom II X6 1075T, 1055T and 1035T, will each adopt a 45nm process. AMD will also launch the quad-core Phenom II X4 960T alongside the six-core models, the sources noted.

iPad

 
 27 Jan 2010 @ 7:45 PM 

Well the name is not a surprise, and neither is the form factor, it’s a giant iPhone…

It sports a ten-hour battery life and packs a 1GHz Apple A4 chip, said by Jobs to be “screaming.” The hardware includes an accelerometer, compass, speaker, 8-02.11n WiFi and Bluetooth 2.1– accessories include a keyboard dock that plugs at the bottom.

The 3G models will be unlocked, with AT&T offering two contract-less data plans in the U.S.–250MB at $14.99 a month or unlimited at $29.99.

All iPhone applications, such as games, will be compatible with the iPad, playable in a boxed window or full-screen through pixel-doubling. “It just works,” says Apple.

I can’t get my quad speakers working, and my son’s 5.1 headphones get no front channel.  Not figured it out yet, but this page is very helpful.

Always like to keep an eye on striking PCs, pretty obvious why this one won…

Shiny, must have one…

AMD is showing off a brand new technology today called Eyefinity (press release). AMD’s next-generation of DirectX 11 graphics cards come with support for up to to six independent displays, which allows you the ability to connect anywhere from one to six displays to just one video card. AMD says that the experience is unlike anything you have ever seen before. This is because using six 30″ LCD displays will give you an insane 7680×3200 pixel resolution for gaming! This setup is capable of 268 Megapixels!

If you are in the market for an upgrde to your PCs, this is a good place to start…

Today we find ourselves with very different and diversified offerings from both companies, that are not only cheaper but also significantly faster. Just take for example AMD’s Phenom II X4 945 that can be purchased for as little as $170, not to mention Intel’s most recent release, the Core i5 750, which is meant to crush its competitors offering top notch performance at the $199 price point.

Whilst I am impressed by the iPhone, I don’t like the OS and consider iTunes and the associated crap it drops all over my hard drive to be a step away from malware.

I still prefer the more familiar windows based smart phones and I am the happy owner of the Touch HD.  So news on its possible replacement caught my eye…

A source familiar with HTC’s plans also told Register Hardware that the Touch HD 2 will be significantly faster than the original – and faster than the vast majority of HTC handsets to date

Low power consumption and high performance, shame about the capacity & price…

When we last looked at SSDs in June it was clear that they had reached a place where there were three main controller manufacturers; Intel, Indilinx and Samsung. One of the initial pioneers of the technology, JMicron, had not released a new generation of controllers which could compete with these three. As a result all but one of the drives in that roundup was based on Indilinx, Intel or Samsung technology.
