August 29th, 2014 by Manmohan No comments »

Panram Technology rely on strong R & D capabilities and solid manufacturing capability to provide customers customized design (Customize) professional Original Equipment Manufacturing (OEM) and Original Design Manufacturing (ODM) services to fully meet the needs of customers. Today announced its new NINJA – V DDR4 Series memory modules developed to high performance and high quality product to end users. Ninja from mystery Japan to represent strong, powerful, quick and cool. Panram Technology NINJA – V DDR4 Memory is just like Ninja style, silent and high performance.

In computer component industry, DDR3 memory modules has been fully transfer into mainstream spec to replaced DDR2 many years ago. However the computer industry become very fastest growing marketing, to reach more performance as the target, DDR3 memory modules is facing bottleneck of weak bandwidth, high voltage and etc limited. Intel and JEDEC take lead of develop the next gen memory spec “DDR4″, to replace DDR3 in the future. Intel Haswell – E platform X99 is the world first DDR4 consumer motherboard chipset, Panram Technology has very good relationship with Intel, in the very beginning stage to involved DDR4 development work, the NINJA – V DDR4 series.

Related to the DDR4 spec, comparison with DDR3 is higher bandwidth and much lower voltage. The spec and mechanical is incompatible on DDR3, there is U-DIMM 288pin for desktop and SO-DIMM 256pin for laptop, work voltage from 1.65V down to 1.2V. baseline transfer bandwidth from 2133MT/s. By new flash process up to 20 nm, single die capability much bigger than now, we can expect 128 GB capacity in single module in the future. Even the DDR4 platform is totally different and customer need to re-flash most important computer parts for upgrade, but this is a computer revolution we must face to.

Panram Technology NINJA -V series DDR4 memory modules, will have two spec include: DDR4-2133 MHz (PC4-17000) and DDR4-2400 MHz (PC4-19200) spec, with 288 pin DDR4 U-DIMM interface, single module capacity up to 4 GB and 8 GB, also 100% hand test 8 GB and 16 GB kit is available, with snow white and dark cool two different thermal heat sink style, all series provide product life time warranty.

Chromebook Pixel revisited: 18 months with Google’s luxury laptop

August 29th, 2014 by Manmohan No comments »

When you stop and think about it, it’s kind of astonishing how far Chromebooks have come.

It was only last February, after all, that Google’s Chromebook Pixel came crashing into our lives and made us realize how good of an experience Chrome OS could provide.

At the time, the Pixel was light-years ahead of any other Chromebook in almost every possible way: From build quality to display and performance, the system was just in a league of its own. And its price reflected that status: The Pixel sold for a cool $1300, or $1450 if you wanted a higher-storage model with built-in LTE support.

Today, the Pixel remains the sole high-end device in the Chromebook world (and its price remains just as high). But the rest of the Chrome OS universe has evolved — and the gap between the Pixel and the next notch down isn’t quite as extreme as it used to be.

So how has the Pixel held up 18 months after its release, and does it still justify the lofty price? I’ve owned and used the Pixel since last spring and have evaluated almost every other Chromebook introduced since its debut.

Here are some scattered thoughts based on my experiences:

1. Hardware and design

As I said when I revisited the device a year ago, the Chromebook Pixel is hands-down the nicest computer I’ve ever used. The laptop is as luxurious as it gets, with a gorgeous design, premium materials, and top-notch build quality that screams “high-end” from edge to edge.

We’re finally starting to see some lower-end Chromebooks creep up in the realms of design and build quality — namely the original HP Chromebook 11 (though it’s simply too slow to recommend for most people) and the ThinkPad Yoga 11e Chromebook (which is sturdy and well-built but not exactly sleek) — and that’s a very good thing. In fact, that’s a large part of what Google was ultimately trying to accomplish by creating the Pixel in the first place. Think about it.

While those devices may be a step up from the status quo, though, they’re not even close to the standard of premium quality the Pixel delivers. When it comes to hardware, the Pixel is first-class through and through while other products are varying levels of economy.

The Pixel’s backlit keyboard and etched-glass trackpad also remain unmatched in their premium nature. Typing and navigating is a completely different experience on this laptop than on any other Chromebook (and, for that matter, on almost any non-Chrome-OS laptop, too).

The same goes for the Pixel’s spectacular speakers. Other Chromebooks are okay, but none is anywhere near this outstanding.

2. Display

The display — man, oh man, the display. The Pixel’s 12.85-in. 2560-x-1700 IPS screen is like candy for your eyes. The vast majority of Chromebook screens (yes, even those that offer 1080p resolution) are still using junky TN panels and consequently look pretty awful. The two exceptions are the same systems mentioned above — the HP 11 and the ThinkPad Yoga 11e — but while those devices’ displays reign superior in the sub-$500 category, their low resolution is no match for the Pixel’s crystal-clear image quality.

Dell Goes Full Steam Ahead on Software-Defined Storage

August 29th, 2014 by Manmohan No comments »

Software-defined storage (SDS) is one of the hot button topics in storage today and Dell is an active player in that space. That should come as no surprise if one understands the nature of how the company is rapidly evolving.

Dell is often narrowly viewed as a server or personal computer company, but really it is a rapidly evolving broad-based information technology vendor. Disk storage systems is just one market where it is a major player along with the likes of EMC, Hewlett Packard, Hitachi Data Systems, IBM, and NetApp. To maintain or advance its position, Dell has to keep up with storage trends, such as SDS.

The most important role of SDS is that it moves storage management intelligence (i.e., software) from the traditional storage controller to somewhere else, typically a server. This means that storage software is decoupled (i.e., abstracted) from the physical storage array(s) that it manages. This can lead to numerous benefits, including flexibility to choose the hardware, scaling-out and pooling of resources without forklift hardware upgrades, establishing/maintaining a virtualized data path, and easing management and process automation.

Dell bases its software-defined storage approach upon three principles: data abstracted from hardware, integrated compute and storage, and software-defined orchestration.

How We Could Cool Quantum Computers

August 29th, 2014 by Manmohan No comments »

Cooling modern-day computers is hard work: fans, heat sinks and even pumped liquid struggle to keep the temperatures of our hardware down. But how might we cool tomorrow’s computers-those powered using the strange and exotic power of quantum physics?

Fortunately, as well as trying to make quantum computing itself actually happen, there are researchers forward-thinking enough to be pondering the practicalities of how it will actually, you know, work in real life. And one of those mundane, yet incredibly vital, jobs is cooling.

Currently, quantum computers work at very low temperatures in order to keep noise and interference to a minimum. That’s OK right now, as they’re small things and all the cooling systems surrounding keeps them cold, but as they increase in size, they’re going to need the heat sucked away from where the action happens. And you can’t use a fan or water pumping, as that infrastructure alone will probably add more heat than it removes.

Enter Peter Nalbach, a theoretical physicist from the University of Hamburg in Germany. He’s just published his plan for a quantum cooling system that might solve the problem. In fact, he’s able to reduce the temperature of a quantum dot-the thing which acts as a quantum bit, or qubit, in a quantum computer-by half.

How does he do it? OK, so, imagine that the quantum bit is sat there, doing it’s quantum computer thing, gradually getting warmer. Nalbach has developed a system which places a tiny electromagnetic prong at either side of the dot, between which a stream of electrons flow-right over the top of the quantum dot.

Thing is, one prong produces electrons with an upward spin-that is, a real rotation-and the other is hungry for electrons, but ones with a downward spin. The electrons are drawn to the latter prong, but have to change spin direction to be accepted by it, and they do that by picking up a little energy, in the form of heat, from the quantum dot over which they’re passing. Bing the electrons are on their way, and heat is removed from the qubit.

It’s a neat trick, and could be used to great advantage in the future to cool the quantum computers we can so far only dream of. There’s one caveat though: quantum computer designs are still in their infancy, so it’s not clear that this set-up will be directly useful. But it’s sure great that someone’s thinking about it.

Microsoft Pitch Surface Pro 3 At Aussie Schools Using Cardboard And An Impressive Digital Display

August 29th, 2014 by Manmohan No comments »

It’s been a long time since Microsoft sang ‘Anything you can do I can do better’, but this week they stuck it to those upstarts at Google and Apple. Where the search-engine based brats created a virtual reality headset out of cardboard for their Android phones, the surprisingly progressive Microsoft have created entire computers out of cardboard. And they’re here in Australia.
Computer may not be entirely accurate – it’s a hybrid tablet/laptop, Microsoft’s Surface Pro 3. And it’s not an actual functioning model, but a replica created from cardboard with a working display.

The above video was uploaded by YouTube user William Corfe, who works at a school which received one of the promo cardboard Surfaces.

Here is a cardboard promo for the new Surface Pro 3 that has turned up at our school, we are a MAC school!!

In his next video, he pulled the cardboard away from the back of the ‘hardware’ to reveal what made the piece of promo merch tick (way to let the kids have a go, Will).

While it’s all just a gimmick to help get the Surface Pro 3 into Aussie schools, watching him peel back and reveal all the wires and circuitry behind that reinforced paper shows Microsoft weren’t going cheap on their efforts to impress. They must have warehouses full of Zunes they could have stuck in there, but they created a reasonable screen with functioning buttons, and even a USB port with which to recharge it.

Ok, Google’s efforts were open-sourced and designed for everyone to experience VR, but both companies’ cardboard creations were ultimately just marketing ploys. And Microsoft so rarely get a win in that department.

Zotac ZBOX PI320 Pico Set for Launching

August 28th, 2014 by Manmohan No comments »

Zotac is known for providing consumers small-sized desktop computers during the past years. Just recently, it announced the launching of its smallest PC product yet. The product has dimensions of 4.5”x 2.6”x 0.76”. In truth, you can compare the size of Zotac ZBOX PI320 pico to a smartphone build. The difference is that it can run modern operating systems, such as the latest Windows 8.1.

The smallest PC yet is clocked at 1.33 GHz and will run an Intel Bay Trail quad-core processor. It has 2GB memory and an additional SSD 32 GB capacity. Intel HD Graphics is responsible for the onboard graphics capability of the gadget. Zotac ZBOX PI320 pico has its variety of connectivity options, which are Bluetooth 4.0. microSDHC/microSDXC slot, HDMI-out, and 802/11n Wi-Fi.

The system unit does not have other moving units or even fans in its encasement. In other words, it can be expected to be very silent while operational.

Zotac ZBOX PI320 pico will come with latest Windows 8.1 OS and pre-loaded Bing application. Once the customers take possession of the PC, they should use Bing as the preset search engine for their Internet Explorer browser. However, there is a limitation in installing Android, Ubuntu, Fedora, Debian, and other operating systems based on Linux.

With Windows 8.1 packed in the unit, there is assurance that the desktop computer will have a significant performance. It will definitely work fine in video playback, Office tools, casual games or apps, as well as web browsing among others.

The PC hast three USB 2.0 ports and 10/100 NIC in order to put so much functionality into the unit. You might as well attach the unit to a monitor or television. The HDMI port of Zotac ZBOX PI320 pico can support as much as 1080p since it features a mounting bracket compatible with VESA.

Zotac introduced its new Zotac ZBOX PI320 pico for any specialized utilizations, seasoned journey, as well as home applications. It is a very ideal option if you need a stand-in streaming or HTPC device.

The product is set for shipping by the latter part of September and will be retailed on October early period with a manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) of $199 in the United States.

Zotac is a Macau-based computer hardware firm that provides products like small PCs, graphics cards, motherboards, and nettops among others. It has more than 6,000 employees globally and is admired for its set of mini PCs.

Zotac’s $199 Zbox Pico mini PC fits in your pocket

August 28th, 2014 by Manmohan No comments »

Zotac has made some pretty small PCs before, but they’ve gone positively Lilliputian with their latest Zbox model. The Zbox Pico is so small that you can actually unplug it and shove it into your pocket.
Volume-wise, this thing’s actually smaller than an Apple TV. It measures just 11.5 x 6.6cm and stands just under 2cm high. There are plenty of external battery packs and portable hard drives with dimensions like those… the difference being, obviously, that the Zbox Pico has a complete x86-compatible PC crammed inside.

The specs are similar to what you’d find in a small Windows 8.1 tablet, as above is the actual system board. Everything that makes the Pico go is soldered on: a quad-core Bay Trail Atom processor, 2GB of RAM, and 32GB of NAND. Zotac has included a micro SD slot for storage expansion, a pair of USB 2.0 ports, HDMI output, Bluetooth 4.0, and both Ethernet and 802.11 b.g.n Wi-Fi. Windows 8.1 with Bing is pre-loaded, so all you have to do is hook up your peripherals and power the Zbox Pico on.
Interested? You won’t have to wait long to purchase one. Zotac is expecting them to go on sale next month, and at $199 (just like this other Zotac PC), it’s not going to hit your wallet too hard.
