Panasonic has developed a new type of IPS liquid crystal panel that has a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio, as well as a peak brightness of up to 1000 nits. Many LCD displays often advertise such contrast ratios which are measured against a dynamic backlight and are essentially meaningless, but in this case Panasonic is talking about the static contrast ratio of the display,
From time to time companies bundle the latest games with their hardware in a bid to attract attention of gamers and to make their products more competitive. Such promotions are mutually beneficial: for gamers, it is a good way to upgrade and save some money on titles, while for companies it is an efficient way to increase sales. Recently AMD and Samsung have launched
Sometimes there is no substitute for performance. Most of the laptop market is focusing on thin and light designs, with companies attempting to outdo each other by shaving a millimeter or two off of their laptop z-height compared to the competition. But in the Desktop Replacement (DTR) category, there are no such concessions. Clevo is one of the few laptop makers that
LaCie this week has introduced two new workstation-grade external storage solutions using Thunderbolt 3 with the focus on big on-the-desk data storage. The 6big and 12big devices pack in six or twelve enterprise-grade hard drives respectively and can provide up to 60 TB or up to 120 TB of storage space. The HDDs can be implemented as a JBOD or work in various RAID modes.
Apple released a new beta of iOS 10.1 to developers yesterday. It features a bunch of additions and improvements, but probably the biggest one for most users is going to be the new emoji. For starters, iOS finally added support for the Unicode 9.0 emoji set. This includes some new emoji, such as shrug, facepalm, rolling on the floor laughing, selfie, bacon, and a whole bunch of other food and animal emoji. Apple
A lot has been written about the upcoming Huawei Mate 9 but the company may have something up its sleeve (literally). An e-paper based smartwatch has leaked with a circular display with marginally smaller bezels than the Pebble Time Round (which was not upgraded in the last round of Pebbles). Looking back at an teaser image from early last month, this seems to be the Huawei Honor S1 smartwatch (note the notches on the bezel).
There are a number of directions for ‘professional grade’ processors in the market, varying from embedded to long-life support to server functionality. AMD’s PRO lines of processors are akin to their consumer counterparts, except they run a guaranteed lifecycle of support with ‘image stability’ (guaranteed OS images) and extended OEM warranties. AMD’s PRO line typically
While we’re not CEATEC, a Japanese technology show, news has come via PC Watch regarding a new publicly announced milestone in monitor production. For any journalist that has attended either IFA, Computex, CES or MWC over the past year, it would be hard going to miss one of the super large (80-inch plus) 8K monitors doing the rounds. While highly impressive in their
Wired networks relying on traditional Cat 5e and Cat 6 cables (at their maximum channel length of 100m) have been limited to 1 Gbps so far. At the other end of the spectrum, 10 Gbps required augmented cables (Cat 6A or better) for transmission lengths typical in enterprise and business scenarios. Despite 10 Gbps Ethernet having been around for more than 10 years now,
04:24AM EDT – I’m here at the first GTC Europe event, ready to go for the Keynote talk hosted by CEO Jen-Hsun Huang. 04:25AM EDT – This is a satellite event to the main GTC in San Francisco. By comparison the main GTC has 5000 attendees, this one has 1600-ish 04:25AM EDT – This is essentially GTC on the road – they’re doing 5 or 6 of these satellite events
Samsung is working on a successor to the Galaxy Grand Prime from 2014. The upcoming Grand Prime (2016) has so far been benchmarked and spotted at the FCC as well as in an Indian import tracking database. So clearly it should be arriving soon. While we do know quite a few of its specs already thanks to that aforementioned benchmark run, today courtesy of Samsung itself we have some news about its software, since the company’s published
After Google’s launch event today in San Francisco, I had an opportunity to get my hands on its new Pixel and Pixel XL phones. My initial impression is that they are decent-looking, well-made phones. Google took a more active role in creating these phones than previous Nexus devices, taking the lead not just in hardware selection, but design as well. Using quality displays
Nowadays, the vast majority of displays for desktop computers have 16:9 aspect ratio for various reasons (e.g., content, manufacturing aspects, etc.). However, there are a lot of professionals, who appreciate taller aspect ratios. Specifically for such people Dell this week introduced the latest iteration of its venerable line of 30″ 16:10 2560×1600 monitors, with the
Alcatel is working on a version of the Idol 4s powered by Windows 10 Mobile. That’s hardly news, since we first heard that an Idol 4 Pro was coming back in February. Needless to say, the device still isn’t official. So Alcatel is really taking its time with this one. Anyway, after seeing it in a leaked render, now it’s time to get a look at the Idol 4 Pro in a couple of live images shot somewhere in the wild.
Razer has announced a new keyboard that introduces a new kind of switch that Razer calls mecha-membrane, a combination of mechanical and membrane key-switches. According to Razer, this switch combines the best of both worlds; you get the soft, cushioned feel of a membrane keyboard with the crisp tactile feedback of a mechanical switch. Razer is also using mid-height keycaps for faster typing experience.
As the iPhone 6’s design turned 2 years old the iPhone 7 was launched to continue the two year cadence for their smartphone designs. As you might expect from a phone like this, rather than maintaining the same industrial design that we saw with the iPhone 6s instead we’re looking at a new, more refined design. To get
HP has an interesting announcement today – they are refreshing their existing Z240 workstation, which is targeted towards small and medium-sized businesses, with a non-Xeon Core i7 based processor. It was already available with Skylake based Xeon CPUs, up to the Intel Xeon E3-1280 v5. That’s a 3.7-4.0 GHz Xeon, with 4 cores, 8 MB of cache, with an 80-Watt Thermal Design Power (TDP).
The Galaxy Note line is a staple at this point, a segment that Samsung truly owns as the first mover and has been wildly successful in ways that Samsung really didn’t predict. The Galaxy Note line has often been said to be the true flagship of the Galaxy smartphone family, and to some extent that probably isn’t far off the mark. With the Galaxy Note7, Samsung is seeking
