ARM has successfully launched its latest processor called Cortex A15 MPCore processor. This new technology has a clockspeed of up to 2.5 GHz and is said to be the successor of Cortex A9 that has a speed of 1GHz. For your information ARM-based chips are the one being using to give life to some handheld devices like smartphone, tablets and even televisions. The a15 was extended to octo core designs and is said to deliver 5 times faster results than the previous version. Other core features include up to 4MB L2 cache, multiple software environment support including full hardware virtualization, can handle TB of memory, and advanced memory correction. This latest ARM processor is compatible on most of the new handheld gadgets like Google’s Android, Adobe’s Flash, Linux and Windows.
LG has announced its very first dual core processor for smartphones dubbed as Nvidia Tegra 2 mobile processor. This latest technology boasts a clock speed of 1GHz and is said to line up in the LG Optimus series. With this processor, mobile users can experience up to 2x faster web browsing, 5x faster gaming performance, and will deliver 1080p HD video playback, thanks to NVIDIA’s technology. We could expect the release of LG’s Optimus Series smartphones featuring the NVIDIA Tegra 2 mobile processor in the fourth quarter of the year.
Clocked at 2.83 GHz, the Q9550 is the second most powerful after the Q9650 in the Core 2 Quad family. The Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 made it to the top by defeating AMD’s most powerful quad-core processor, the Phenom X4 955, by a small margin on the time it was released. It scored higher in most 3D benchmark tests except the audio and video encoding tests. Since both Core 2 Quad Q9550 and Phenom II X4 955 are priced almost the same, still the Q9550 is the better choice. Not because I’m a great fan of Intel processors that’s why I’ve chosen this one, but because of it’s performance and features. Still don’t underestimate AMD’s Phenom II X4 995, because it has features to unlocked multiplier which makes overclocking a breeze. However, the Q9550 can be overclocked much higher (more than 1 GHz) by increasing the FSB.
AMD Phenom II X4 965BE is one of the most awaited quad core processor, which seems to be released this coming August. This black edition processor is the fastest phenom series as of now. AsRock website gave some brief info about this processor, like the model name of Phenom II X4 965BE is HDZ965FBK4DGI, and it’s code name was Deneb CPU. The chip have a clock rate of 3.4 GHz, with 512KB X 4 L2 cache, 6MB L3 cache and an integrated dual-channel DDR2/DDR3 memory controller and will support all the latest technologies found in AMD processors. The chip will be in AM3 form-factor, hence, will be able to work in both AM3 and AM2+ platforms that support 125W thermal design power.
Good news for all the techie and geeks out there, especially for the Intel Core i7 enthusiasts. A new model of the Core i7 platform is now available, the Core i7 Extreme 975 and Core i7 950 processors are now out at a few online US retailers as of this morning.
As we mentioned back in February, both processors are to serve as replacements for the existing Core i7 Extreme 965 and Core i7 940 at higher clock speeds, a new stepping revision, and the same respective price points.
HP has released it’s new notebook model, Pavilion DV7-1260US. This new dv series is defined by fluid, modern lines and metalized finishes with new design on inside and outside area. The dv7 series Intersect Imprint features an argyle-like pattern for subtle contrast to the liquid appearance of the metallic finish. And touch media controls light up and become visible only when the system is powered on further enhancing the clean appearance. Equipped with AMD Turion X2 RM-74 Dual-Core Mobile Processor with 4GB of RAM, this laptop can run hardcore applications used in video editing, 3d animation, photo editing, and even playing high detailed 3d games. Its approximate unit dimensions is 15.59 (W) x 11.22 (D) x 1.66 (H) and weigh 7.7 Pounds.
The standard in gaming processors, at least as far as Intel goes, is the Intel Core 2 Duo and Quad Core, which offer pretty exceptional computing performance at a relatively low price. Still, as you probably are aware, no computing technology lasts forever and there is always something better coming in the pipeline. According to most people, the next generation of Intel chips is not only good, but exceptional. This next-generation chip by Intel is called the Core i7 and according to recent testing and research, it will dramatically change the way you experience gaming and computing.
