Quick Look at Antec USB charging hub (UA4-25) and PowerUp Slim 2200 (APS-2200)

antec_power

Introduction AMP branding is expanding into the mobile market with various peripherals such as speaker, headphone and power adapter for mobile devices. Among the power adapters, Antec has shipped us the 4-port USB Charging Station (model number UA4-25) and the external battery pack, the PowerUp Slim 2200 (model number APS-2200) that we will take a quick look here. Antec 4-Port USB Charging Station I am sure that many household are facing the same issue where there is a pile of cables and chargers somewhere near a wall socket designed to charge many electronics that we use daily. The power adapter mess for the mobile devices is much better than it used to be as currently pretty much all mobile devices are using micro-USB connector as the de factor connector for charging except Apple (and a few tablets) that still are doing things their own way with the Lightning connector. The ... Read More »

AMD Introduces heterogeneous Queuing (hQ)

Heterogeneous Queuing Presentation_Page_10

AMD today brings the latest implementation of the heterogeneous computing with the introduction of the heterogeneous queuing (hQ). As you may recall, AMD founded the Heterogeneous System Architecture (HSA) Foundation with other chipmakers and industry giants such as ARM, Qualcomm, and Samsung to promote a great utilization of various computing processors such as CPU, GPU, DSP and others . The goal of the HSA is to bring ISA agnostic to the chip and brings all of the computing resources to equal footing.

Arctic S113BT Bluetooth Wireless Speaker with NFC

Arctic_S113BT

Remember old times, when you had to plug a cable in the 3.5” mm headphone jack of your mobile device to the speaker in order to amplify the volume so that everyone at the party could enjoy music? Many IOS devices also utilize the 30-pin or lightning connector to pass the audio to the speaker. Well, it’s time to cut the wire since Bluetooth wireless speakers are popping out everywhere this year that let you stream your music from your mobile devices without the need of a wire. While Bluetooth or wireless speakers are not new technologies, this year, there seemed to be an explosion of wireless speakers popping out everywhere.    Arctic’s latest S113BT is a budget portable wireless Bluetooth speaker with NFC chip that is retailed at $69.90. The speaker is shipped in a relatively small box that resembled a lot like what you get with your mobile phone. ... Read More »

OCZ Vertex 450 2x128GB RAID

OCZ_Vertex_450

Looking at the model number of the OCZ Vertex 450 and you would be thinking that the product falls in the same family as the Vertex 4. However, the only thing that the Vertex 450 shares with the Vertex 4 is only the branding of Vertex. Other than that, the Vertex 450 actually is more closely related to the performance Vector series SSD that OCZ has launched late last year. The Vertex 450 uses the same Barefoot III (part number IDX500M10-BC) controller as the Vector but instead of using 25nm NAND MLC chip as the Vector, the Vertex 450 is paired with the die-shrunk 20nm MLC NAND. The shift to 20nm fabrication process is inevitable in order to save costs and to increase the NAND capacity so that manufacturers could pack more bits per die. This not only drives the price of the SSD down but also helps to increase the ... Read More »

steamos_top

STEAM has announced the SteamOS that is aimed to bring PC games to your living room. The company is also gearing to unveil its prototype Steam Machines and controllers. While the device will not be available for purchasing until next year, some lucky 300 Steam users may get their chance of testing the prototype. Steam has listed the specification of the prototype. The system will come with Intel processor i7-4770, or i5-4570, or i3. For the GPU, it will include NVIDIA Titan, GTX 780, GTX 760, or GTX 660 and the card will have 3GB of GDDR5.
