Les PC sous format clé, les clé-pc , vont devenir de plus en plus nombreux et de moins en moins cher, c’est désormais une certitude. Une des dernière en date fonctionne sous un processeur ARM à 1.5 GHz et Android 4 Ice Cream Sandwich, elle est de la taille d’une grosse clé USB de type Tuner et est proposée aux environs de 70$.
FXI Cotton Candy had been dubbed the worlds smallest computer in a thumb drive; development units went on preorder in February of 2012 and was expected to ship in March of 2012.
Calxeda a profité de l’Ubuntu Developer Summit d’Oakland (Californie) pour présenter un serveur 2U intégrant un maximum de 48 processeurs ARM quadricœurs, soit un total de 192 cœurs. Le tout fonctionne sous Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.
Earlier in the Ubuntu 12.04 LTS “Precise Pangolin” development cycle I noted some performance improvements happening on the ARM side, particularly for Texas Instruments OMAP4. Namely, Ubuntu 12.04 was ARMing up for better performance with ARM hard-float support and the performance becoming more compelling for the PandaBoard ES hardware with proper cpufreq support. In this article is a comparison of the Ubuntu 11.10 and Ubuntu 12.04 ARM performance.
The newly announced Samsung Galaxy S3 may not only have an amazing new 32nm Quad-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor with a new accelerated higher frequency Quad-core Mali-400 GPU offering perhaps the fastest ARM SoC in the world at the moment. Samsung may also have done the right choice to fully enable and activate ARM TrustZone through the MobiCore integrated security platform directly onto the Exynos 4412 SoC.
The Galaxy S III is… well… its ugly. Theres really no other way to put it. But why? Why is it ugly? I dont mean aesthetically, why is it ugly, I mean, “How did something like this ever make it out of Samsungs design studio?” Ill tell you how, it was never in the design studio. This phone design was born down the hall, in a room where the door sign reads “Samsung Legal.”
During these past 2 weeks, I posted 122 videos from my trip in China. Thanks for watching! I have now returned back in Europe. Here are the numbers of videos that I posted from each conference:
Looking for something a bit more solid than a third-party benchmark? We can do that. “Already in production the Exynos 4 Quad is scheduled to be adopted first into Samsung’s next Galaxy smartphone that will officially be announced in May,” the horse’s mouth reveals. Samsung boasts that the new 32nm 1.4GHz quad-core processor flaunts twice the processing power over its predecessor, thanks to its High-K Metal Gate (HKMG) low-power technology.
ut this isn’t just about Moore’s Law; this is a story of how the demands for more performance, less power and smaller sizes are all combining to force changes in the chip industry.
