Surface Pro 2 get minor update to processor

surface pro 2

Some times it helps not being an early adopter. It seems that Microsoft has quietly given the CPU in the new Surface Pro 2 tablet a nice little speed boost It is The Verge that reports that not 2 months after its release the new Surface Pro 2 tablets that are shipping now comes with a slightly faster CPU that is  clocked at 1.9GHz instead of the stock 1.6GHz Intel i5-4200U chip that originally shipped with the tablet. Sometimes it pays not being an early adopter. Source: TheVerge   Related posts: Ivy Bridge-E is here! Intel Core i7-4960X Extreme Edition Processor Review Intel’s New Ivy Bridge-E Has Landed!

Lian Li unveils the Lian Li DK01, a marriage between a desk and a chassi

dk01_1

Lian Li is a company that isn’t afraid to test new things when it comes to computer cases.  Some of you might remember the “Spider”-chassi or the “Train”-chassi. The DK01 prototype that was unveiled earlier this week is basically a desk with an acrylic table top and a drawer for the components.  The table measures 800 mm x 795 mm x 600 mm (WxHxD) and has room for a lot of nice toys. It can handle huge HPTX motherboards and thus can handled basically any other motherboard size you can think of. There is room for up to 14 3.5″ drives (yes, fourteen) and these sit in detachable bays. Removing some of the bays allows us to put in larger motherboards and longer add-on cards. As for PSU’s you can put in PUS’s up to 280mm length. Since the computer sits in a drawer there are som limitations to how high the CPU-cooler ... Read More »

Yikes, “NSA seeks to build quantum computer that could crack most types of encryption.”

This sounds like we are never going to have any privacy. In room-size metal boxes ­secure against electromagnetic leaks, the National Security Agency is racing to build a computer that could break nearly every kind of encryption used to protect banking, medical, business and government records around the world. According to documents provided by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden, the effort to build “a cryptologically useful quantum computer” — a machine exponentially faster than classical computers — is part of a $79.7 million research program titled “Penetrating Hard Targets.” Much of the work is hosted under classified contracts at a laboratory in College Park, Md.

AMD releases AMD Catalyst™ 13.12 for Windows (WHQL) and Linux

AMD has released a new version of their Catalyst drivers for Windows (WHQL) and Linux.  In addition to adding official support for the R9270-290 and R7240-260 cards it also improves Crossfire-scaling for some cards and more importantly adds support for Crossfire frame pacing. The idea with frame pacing is to make sure that playback is even and regular when using two cards in Crossfire. AMD cards have traditionally had issues where running in games have caused some micro stuttering when frames have not been displayed evenly from the two cards. Currently the frame pacing is only supported up to 2560×1600 in a single display but support for more displays and 4K resolution is coming. As always get the drivers from http://game.amd.com.   FEATURE HIGHLIGHTS OF AMD CATALYST™ 13.12 ​Support for the following new products: AMD Radeon™ R9 290, 280, and 270 Series AMD Radeon™ R7 260, 250, and 240 Series ​Improved AMD ...

OCZ Technology Launches New Enterprise​-Class Intrepid 3000 Series SSDs

OCZ_Intrepid_3000

OCZ has had some bad news lately with the filing for bankruptcy but the Toshiba buyout may helped the company coming back even stronger. The bad news does not prevent the company from releasing a new product. Today, OCZ has released a new Intrepid 3000 Series enterprises SSD. The Intrepid 3000 uses OCZ Everest controller based on Marvell 88SS9187 controller (same as in Vertex 4) paired with OCZ’s own proprietary firmware. The drive has a rated 520 MB/s for sequential read (128K blocks), 470 MB/s sequential write (128K blocks), 91,000 IOPS random read and 40,000 IOPS random writes.
