SD Eye-Fi, Storage + Wi-Fi

ScanDisk and Eye-Fi join forces to improve the distribution of cards with Wi-Fi and as a result it was born the: SD Eye-Fi, a new storage card that includes Wi-Fi connectivity for our cameras. We can use it to transfer photos or videos to a computer, phone or tablet within the reach of the WiFi net, without the need of wires.

Kingston squeezes the potential out of the Quad Channel-64 Gb or RAM in the Sandy Bridge E.

The new Intel platform, Sandy Bridge E, brings as a novelty the inclusion of the Quad Channel technology. This technology allows us to optimize the use of the different RAM modules installed in the equipment reducing latency times by sending the information to the RAM to several modules, not all to the same one. Thus, it is advisable to use as RAM modules as memory channels are allowed by our mainboard. The Sandy Bridge E will have a minimum of 4 sockets and a maximum of 8 sockets. If we install RAM modules of 8 GB to each of these modules we obtain 64 GB RAM DDR3 in one computer.

The manufacturer of Kingston memories carried a show of a kit of quad channel memory with 64 GB of capacity which is expected to be released after the Sandy Bridge-E come to the market.

Claremont, solar-powered Intel microprocessor

Intel has developed a “Near Threshold Voltage Processor”. This chip, code-named “Claremont”, works with ultra low voltage circuits, close to threshold, or turn-on voltage, of the transistors. This chip runs fast when needed, or consume just milliwatts of power when there when the workload is light enough. This means that it can work with green energies, like the solar power. Thus, Intel is unveiling one of its most interesting developments with an eye to the future: the solar-powered microprocessor.

PCI Express 4.0 for 2015

The announcement was made by Al Yanes, President of the PCI SIG during a meeting with the Semi Accurate publication.

PCI SIG announced at the end of June that it formed a group for the research for the fourth generation of the PCI Express standard. That team included members of companies such as Intel, AMD, Hewlett-Packard and IBM.

For the organization PCI-SIG (Peripheral Component Interconnect Special Interest Group) in charge of the creation of the PCI standards, the final PCIe 4.0 standard will be ready by 2014 for the manufacturers to create products this year to be released in 2015.

First developers API for Google­­+

“The user is the first, you have to be clear and respect the data of the users.” Those are the three principles for the use of the first API of Google +.

As Google commented with this API the developers will be able to build apps with the possibility to share content, identify yourself and keep a conversation in Google+.

Hybrid Memory Cube. The next step in DRAM evolution

Hybrid Memory Cube is being developed by Intel and Micron and there are already some functional prototypes which sustain transfer rates of 1 terabit per second (about 128 GB/s) and minimize the energy impact up to seven times, claiming to be 10 times faster than DDR3 memories.

HP introduces inexpensive IPS displays

4 new displays were introduced from the multinational HP with the ZR series. Aimed at the professional sector, they will come in 27 inches (ZR2749W), 24 inches (ZR2440w), 21.5 inches (ZR2240w) and 20 inches (ZR2040w), all of them with 1080p resolution and an IPS panel for an accurate color reproduction at any viewing angle.
