Video ad AMD Graphics Card Criticize Nvidia

  • Posted on June 23, 2017 at 2:59 am

Not only the mobile gadget manufacturers who likes sarcastic competitors through advertising, this trend also extends to the world of PC components. One example is a video advertisement for AMD graphics card product called “AMD Radeon Graphics Presents: The Fixer”.

It is said, a gamer complaining because the graphics card “brand X” is not capable of running the game his liking. Then comes the one who suggested the players that switch using AMD graphics cards. Here’s The Fixer, a figure in the story that will “fix” the problem gamers.

The Fixer suggestion was inserted various promotional messages. For example, there is mention of a given game bundle through series AMD Radeon graphics card is used on the Xbox console and the PlayStation 4 One. There are also allusions to the gait of the graphics card manufacturer AMD competitor in the mobile world.

Ad ends with a scene of two men walked into the yard. Belonged to the old graphics card gamer-that design is similar to one graphics card Nvidia GeForce-looked is held by The Fixer and slammed to the ground and destroyed with cruel.

Poor graphics card manufacturer’s logo is obfuscated in the video. Are still clearly visible is the color, the light green is synonymous with Nvidia GeForce.

Looks a little scared by the brutal actions that occurred in front of him, the players shouted, “You need to calm down!” are answered by The Fixer, “I never compromise (settle)”. The word “settle” here does have two meanings, namely “calm” and “compromise”. Meanwhile, “Never Settle” is the name of the game promo bundle on AMD graphics cards.

He might look a bit stiff and childish, this ad still worth a look with a cool head. Consumers in the end it will benefit from the competition between industry players.

SuVolta’s transistor technology speed-power benefits are validated in ARM processor

  • Posted on June 21, 2017 at 2:13 am

The ARM Cortex-M series processor was manufactured with SuVolta’s Deeply Depleted Channel (DDC) technology on a 65 nm bulk planar CMOS DDC process. With SuVolta’s transistor technology, designers are able to reduce power or improve performance, depending upon design requirements.

“ARM’s heritage is based on low power, so technologies that can further improve power consumption, such as DDC technology from SuVolta, will always be welcomed by ARM and our Partners,” said Noel Hurley, vice president, Strategy and Marketing, Processor Division, ARM. “SuVolta has shown that the DDC technology, when incorporated into an ARM processor, can provide additional power reductions or a significant performance boost. As the Internet of Things continues to expand, innovative ultra-low power technology for Sensors and other devices will be vital to ensure that ARM remains at the forefront of this opportunity.”

When compared to an identical ARM Cortex-M0 processor manufactured in the conventional 65 nm process, with a 1.2 V supply voltage, the DDC transistor-based ARM implementation operating at 0.9 V demonstrates a 50 percent lower total power consumption at matched 350 MHz operating speed. There is also a 35 percent increased operating speed (performance) at matched power. In addition there is a 55 percent increased operating speed when operated at matched supply voltage.

“We’ve now validated the benefits of the DDC technology in a complex SoC, by combining the ARM Cortex-M0 CPUs with SRAM instances and various analog components,” explained David Kidd, senior director, digital design at SuVolta. “The results speak for themselves – power-performance optimized CPU cores, with results that hold across process corners and temperature, plus, SRAMs with 150 mV lower minimum operating voltage, 50 percent less leakage power at matched SRAM read current, and more than 5x less leakage power in retention mode.”

“Reducing power consumption and enhancing performance are key to providing next-generation capabilities for a variety of advanced digital products,” said Bruce McWilliams, president and CEO at SuVolta. “By validating the speed-power advantages of the DDC technology in a SoC that includes ARM processors, we’ve reached another significant milestone in demonstrating the value of our technology in a system.”

Starting from his love for the graphic design world, John Djauhari now assembling machines printer (printer) 3D. By leveraging open source technology, 3D printers that can print documents assembled Johanes digital into three-dimensional objects.

John worked as a product designer. Some clients who want to make a product sometimes is not satisfied if only to see the design in the form of digital documents. They want physical shape despite the small size.

“Well, from there, why do not I make a 3D printer itself,” he said when met at the show Popcon KompasTekno Asia 2013 in Jakarta Convention Center, beginning last July.

John also likes the toys (toys). Many colleagues who designed character toys and wanted to realize his ideas into tangible form. Some of them use the services of John for 3D printing.

John also likes the toys (toys). Many colleagues who designed character toys and wanted to realize his ideas into tangible form. Some of them use the services of John for 3D printing.

Keseriusan Johanes merakit printer 3D dimulai pada 2011. Ia mendirikan Bikin Bikin 3D Print dan aktif ikut pameran untuk memperkenalkan teknologi ini. Kala itu, desain luar printer buatannya masih berupa kerangka. Setelah melewati beberapa kali pengembangan, kini printer 3D-nya semakin akurat dan didesain menggunakan casing. “Akurasinya sampai 0,2 mm,” tutur Johanes.

Akurasi itu dibuktikan dengan mencetak replika arca yang penuh detail dan lekukan. Johanes terlebih dahulu memindai seluruh bagian arca asli yang tersimpan di Museum Nasional. Setelah mendapat filepindainya, mulailah Johanes mendesain 3D lalu mencetak dengan printer buatannya sendiri.

Memanfaatkan “open source

Dalam mengembangkan printer 3D, Johanes memanfaatkan teknologi open source untuk driver dansoftware. Ia ikut dalam forum internet yang khusus membahas teknologi printer 3D.

“Di forum ini, kita bisa tahu kalau ada algoritma yang lebih baik dan memberi struktur lebih mudah. Bukan cuma soal teknis, dari sana juga kita tahu soal materi yang mudah dicari dan lebih terjangkau,” jelasnya.

Untuk mendesain bentuk 3D, Johanes menggunakan software Pronter Face dan Repetier. Komputer yang dipakainya terhubung ke motherboard printer melalui kabel USB. Motherboard inilah yang memerintahkan gerakan koordinat X, Y, dan Z, menerjemahkan dokumen digital menjadi obyek nyata 3D.

Printer 3D yang dibuat Johanes masuk dalam tahap pengembangan akhir. Ia membuka pre-orderdengan harga Rp 10 juta. Setelah masa pre-order berakhir pada September 2013, printer 3D bakal dibanderol Rp 12 juta.

In addition to the support for mobile work, the tablet PC is also widely used as a means of entertainment. Just as smartphones, tablet PCs are now available in the market with a variety of prices and specifications. Like one of these tablet PC products from following SpeedUp present for tablet PC users in the entry level segment.
Concept & Design
Speedup Phone Pad is a tablet PC with 7-inch screen. The design is quite average and quite like tablet PCs in its class with aluminum alloy and plastic body and frame design of the screen is quite thick. Indoors, the display screen itself is quite good and still comfortably viewed with a screen resolution of 1024 × 600 pixels. However, like most local screen tablet PC is rather difficult to see under a blazing lighting conditions. For the body, Speedup Pad Phone has brought unibodi design that makes users can not remove the plastic cover on the back to remove the battery. Overall, light weight, the thickness of the body is quite fit and do not look cheap.
Although it can be used in portrait position, Speedup Pad Phone seems designed to be used in a horizontal position / landscape. This is evident from the presence of a resolution 2-megapixel secondary camera on the top of the screen (in horizontal position) and two speakers are located on the left side of the screen.
For port connectivity, SIM card slot, audio jack port, SD memory card slot and a mini USB port, everything is placed in the left side of the body. All ports and slots are placed pretty well there. But unfortunately, when a memory card slot for a memory card inserted, the memory card is not fully inserted into the body and look a bit obtrusive. Although not a little disturbing but this reduces the aesthetic value of the packaging and less unsightly.

Interface
Speedup Pad Phone running the Android operating system Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.4. The interface is relatively simple with the standard launcher without any touch or customization of the factory. This is a positive value in itself, because this performance with a simple interface feels relatively quickly because it is not burdened with a custom homescreen launcher used by tablet PCs in its class. But, if you are bored with the zoom you can still use another launcher that can be downloaded through PlayStore.

Applications and Features
For applications and innate feature of SpeedUp Pad Phone also relatively minimal. In it you can find SpeedUp Studio which is a speedup store digital content that provide content such as music, magazines, apps, games and news feeds. For applications, in addition to relying on Google PlayStore SpeedUp you can also rely on the AppStore. While it is a list of applications available in PlayStore not much, but at least it is also a plus because the application is available to download for free.
If you have a security camera of SpeedUp, Speedup Pad Phone is also equipped SpeedUp Camera app to connect with your security cameras in order to monitor remotely. And for office, has been available Kingsoft Office applications, Notepad and Adobe Reader to open the file. Pdf.

Despite reaching the benchmark value was minimal does not mean the tablet PC is lousy loh. For testing we use everyday is quite impressed with its performance fairly okay. The screen is quite responsive compared to tablet PCs in its class. Switching between pages on the menu and homescreen feels smooth and does not feel significant lag. Even so, there are enough to make us wonder at the launcher SpeedUp Pad Phone. Every time you access a menu that contains a row of application performance is noticeably slow and visible lag. Whereas when pressing the home icon to return to the homescreen all running smoothly. Hopefully edepannya k SpeedUp can provide updates to address bugs like this.
Multimedia and Gaming
For multimedia needs SpeedUp Phone has come up with music app, video player and radio. To watch a movie, we tried HD720p quality movies and 1080p. The default video player application is only able to play a video file format HD720p pretty well. And when running 1080p video file format image can not be displayed. If you want to watch movies in Full HD tablet PC, alternatfinya is using another video app that can be downloaded at Google PlayStore. But you also must be quite satisfied with the performance of the frame rate a bit slow and the battery certainly be more extravagant when playing Full HD content.
In addition to watching movies, Speedup Pad Phone can also be used for listening to music. But unfortunately, good for watching movies, listening to music, or playing games, performing voice though it is set at the maximum level still feels underpowered. Not only that, the capacity of internal storage space is only 4GB is also noticeably less if you save the video files in HD format, and music file format. FLAC or. WAV file size is generally large. But luckily still available memory card slot that can be used to increase the storage space up to a maximum capacity of 32GB.
And as an alternative to your current mobile entertainment, this tablet PC can still be relied upon to play the game. To play the games lightly with a simple display such as Angry Birds and Tiny Thief is a very capable tablet PC to play it. And what about the 3D games that require heavy graphics performance? We try to play racing game Real Racing 3. The result? Speedup Pad Phone can still be counted on to play a decent 3D game Real Racing 3 weight class pretty well.
