SEOUL – Manufacturers of electronic devices from South Korea, Samsung, announced the latest hardware besutannya, solid-state storage drive (SSD) 840 Evo. The data storage hardware comes with capacities of 1TB of data.

Reported by Cnet, Thursday (07/18/2013), the launch of Samsung’s 840 SSD series has circulated in November 2012. Latest, Samsung offers a new device called the SSD 840 with a capacity of 1 TB Evo.

ASUS PQ321Q UltraHD Monitor Review: Living with a 31.5-inch 4K Desktop Display

  • Posted on May 26, 2017 at 7:51 pm

Many consider me to be a 4K hater. The past few trade shows I’ve attended have been pushing it on consumers to replace their TVs, but I see less value in it. When it comes to a computer display, it is a different game. Unlike a 50” TV, we sit close to our monitors, even if they are 30” in size. We also have no worries about a lack of native content, since everything is rendered on the fly and native. There are no issues with the lack of HDMI 2.0, as DisplayPort 1.2 can drive a 3840×2160 screen at 60 Hz.

When it comes to 4K on the desktop, my main question is: how much difference will I see? ASUS is one of the first with a HiDPI display in the PQ321Q. While not truly 4K, it is a 3840×2160 LCD display that can accept an Ultra High Definition (UHD) signal over HDMI and DisplayPort. It also clocks in at a wallet-stretching $3,500 right now. The question is, are we seeing the future with displays here, or are we seeing a niche product?

What does 4K/UHD/HiDPI bring to the desktop? We’ve seen it for a few years now in smartphones and tablets, making their smaller screens more usable for reading and general work. My initial thought is more desktop space, as that is what it has meant before. With a 32” monitor and a pixel density this high, running it without any DPI scaling leads to a desktop where reading text is a huge pain. Instead I believe most users will opt for DPI scaling so elements are larger and easier to read. Now you have something similar to the Retina screen on the iPhone: No more desktop space compared to a 2560×1440 monitor, but one that is razor sharp and easier to look at.

To get to this pixel density, ASUS has relied upon a panel from Sharp that uses IGZO technology. IGZO (Indium gallium zinc oxide) is a material that replaces amorphous silicon for the active layer of an LCD screen. The main benefit is higher electron mobility that allows for faster reacting, smaller pixels. We have seen non-IGZO panels in smartphones with higher pixel densities, but we don’t have any other current desktop LCDs that offer a higher pixel density than this ASUS display. IGZO also allows for a wide viewing angle.

Sisco will buy software maker Sourcefire

  • Posted on May 24, 2017 at 11:13 pm

Jakarta (ANTARA News) – Sisco System said it will buy software company Sourcefire Inc. for about $ 2.7 billion to improve the network security services.

Sisco will pay 76 dollars for each share of Sourcefire, 28.6 percent higher than the closing market price premium 59.08 dollars Monday, Reuters said in a report on Tuesday.

The networking equipment company said the deal would likely close the second quarter of 2013 and estimates that there will be a dilution thin on non-GAAP earnings in fiscal year 2014.

Sisco has been losing market share in network security last year, lower than the more innovative rivals such as Networks Inc., Check Point Software Technologies, and Palo Alto Networks Inc..

Sisco compete in Web applications, social media and video streaming that require security protection is more complex than traditional firewalls.

RBC Capital Markets analyst Robert Breza said the deal would eliminate a key competitor in the market for Check Point, Fortinet, and Palo Alto, but also strengthen the position of Sisco in the industry.

It would also create a major competitor in the network security industry, he said, adding that Sourcefire will bring the technology of real-time network awareness (RNA) and intrusion prevention system (IPS) to Sisco.
