dual-core Nano chips, VIA preps SSE4-enabled

by Techno News | 12/31/2008 04:40:00 AM in | comments (0)

Chip manufacturer VIA will begin sampling a dual-core version of its Nano CPU in the second half of 2009 and shipping the next-generation processor in volume in late 2009 or early 2010, slightly earlier than previous a roadmap leak indicated. Like rival AMD which recently outlined new Atom-competitors, VIA's X86-compatible Nano chips debuted in May to compete with Intel's Atom and lower-end Celeron M chips. VIA hopes to stem the growing adoption of Intel's Atom processor (and dual-core nettop PC variant); VIA, the report says, expects to deliver samples ahead of the previously reported June 2010 launch. Digitimes reports that the new dual-core Nano chips will arrive before the end of the first quarter of 2010, while a next-generation SSE4-enabled Nano CPU will arrive in the third quarter of 2009.

Based on the Nano 1000 and 2000 series chips, the report says that VIA plans to launch the next-generation Nano 3000 series CPU in the third quarter of 2009 with support for the SSE4 instruction set. The SSE4 instructions were introduced as part of the Intel Core microarchitecture, but also have been licensed by rival AMD in its K10 architecture; the include more than 50 extra instructions to help boost performance for multimedia and web applications. Though it is unclear, the updated chips will likely not support the full SSE4 instruction set, but rather a subset of 47 instructions -- dubbed SSE4.1 -- which is available in Intel's Penryn (the seven remaining instructions are also available in Intel's new Core i7, formerly Nehalem).

According to the report, engineering samples of Nano 3000 series CPUs will be completed in the first quarter next year and the CPU will be manufactured using Fujitsu Electronics' 65nm process. VIA is still evaluating whether to manufacture the dual-core Nano chip using Fujitsu's 45nm process or Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company's (TSMC's) 40nm process, Digitimes reported.

VIA is currently expected to release its Nano E-series chip in the spring of 2009, which will bump up the front system bus speeds from the current 800MHz to 1,333MHz and use a 65nm process. The chip will be backwards compatible and fit onto the same mainboards as the older NanoBGA2 chips.

Samsung S8300 with 8 megapixel camera

by Techno News | 12/29/2008 11:53:00 AM in | comments (1)

Samsung S8300 has just been served its first spoonful of leaky goodness as images and preliminary specs trickle out into the internet. First things first, it’s not pretty. Moving past the look of the S8300 however, things get pretty juicy:

  • 2.8″ AMOLED touchscreen display, WQVGA resolution, 16 million colors
  • 8 megapixel camera with auto-focus and dual-LED flash
  • Integrated GPS
  • FM radio with RDS
  • Bluetooth 2.1
  • 60MB internal memory
  • 7.2Mbps HSDPA
Of course the S8300 will surely drop in Europe and/or Asia first but Samsung has been surprising us lately with the coming of a few US-3G compatible gems.

The new conceptual torch light designed by Slovenian designer Tilen Sepic, is something that has been picked straight out of the sci-fi movies. The whole idea of the concept as per the designer is to produce a working light without the hassle of shadows being reflected in the object. The device is supposed to be worn like a glove around the wrist and the light is emitted through the white LED which is a part of the device. The device also includes a battery pack with the light being transferred through the attached optical fibers to a specified location. Just point at the location and you will see light!

Fat fingers no problem with 'see-through' touchscreen

by Techno News | 12/22/2008 01:47:00 AM in | comments (0)

Electronic devices have been shrinking for years, but you might be forgiven for thinking that one that's only a centimetre across would be just too difficult to operate.

Now tests of a prototype device only slightly larger than this have shown that it can be made perfectly usable by combining a screen on the front with a touch-sensitive pad on the back.

Touch screens can be an intuitive method of interacting with computers and are now near ubiquitous in smartphones and other high-end hand-held gadgets.

Prototype see through with touch screen

by Techno News | 12/22/2008 01:21:00 AM in | comments (0)

There may finally be a compromise between the world of ever-shrinking electronic devices and our ever-expanding fingers.

A prototype device called the NanoTouch features a 2.4-inch screen and a touch-sensitive pad of the same size on the back, according to a demonstration on NewScientist. Using the touch pad on the back, users can manipulate icons on the screen in front without obscuring the target with their fingers, creating an experience resembling transparency. (NewScientist's video demonstrating the NanoTech.)

Researchers say that tests showed targets as small as seven-tenths of an inch wide were easy to select using the NanoTouch. Targets on conventional touch screens are typically at least twice that size.

The NanoTouch is intended to demonstrate an evolving technology that focuses on making user interfaces practical on small devices.

The NanoTouch, developed by Microsoft Research and Hasso Plattner Institute in Potsdam, Germany, is expected to be unveiled in April at the Computer and Human Interaction conference in Boston.

On first creating or opening a project in Adobe Premiere Elements 4 you are presented with a simple, yet familiar interface. The bottom third or so of the window is taken up by the timeline/sceneline bar, where clips, effects, music, etc. are placed. The upper left of the screen is entirely taken up by the preview window. To the right of this is the tasks window, where most of the action of importing clips, creating DVD menus, choosing transitions, and pretty much every other action, takes place. This layout will work for almost everyone, but, depending on your project, the entire workspace can be customized.

By magnetically levitating water droplets, and using a “liquid electric motor” technique to spin them, researchers can investigate how the droplets change shape. Rather than being just a curious experiment, the results could provide insights into systems that cannot be controlled in the laboratory, such as black holes and atomic nuclei.

The making of an ethanol 'superbug'

by Techno News | 12/15/2008 07:10:00 PM in | comments (0)

From these beakers to your gas tank. A few years ago, the idea of cellulosic ethanol--making liquid fuel from wood, grasses, and agriculture residue--was a foreign concept to most. Now many consumers, industrialists, and policy makers consider making cellulosic ethanol on a commercial scale one of the most important technical challenges for society.

Mascoma is one company in the race, with what it hopes is a breakthrough in cellulosic ethanol through biotechnology.

General Motors invested in the company earlier this year and on Friday named its director of global energy systems R&D to Mascoma's board. On Friday, Mascoma also opened up its lab in Dartmouth, N.H., to describe its technology and report on its progress.

The feedstocks, from left to right, are corn stover (stalks and leaves), hardwood chips, switchgrass, and paper sludge (what's leftover from paper processing).

From images taken by NASA's Hubble Space Telescope, for the first time astronomers have spotted a planet orbiting a star outside our solar system.

The planet, Fomalhaut b, maintains an orbit around the star Fomalhaut and has three times the mass of Jupiter.

"Our Hubble observations were incredibly demanding. Fomalhaut b is 1 billion times fainter than the star. We began this program in 2001, and our persistence finally paid off," said Hubble astronomer Paul Kalas, of the University of California at Berkeley.

Fire up Software Update to get the latest update to Mac OS X Leopard.

(Credit: Josh Lowensohn/CNET)

MobileMe syncing improvements and security fixes headline the list of changes unveiled with the release of Apple's Mac OS X 10.5.6 update Monday.

The file should be appearing in the Software Update window at any moment now, depending on how often you've set Software Update to check for new software. The sixth update to Leopard, originally released in October 2007, comes with the usual range of tweaks, bug fixes, and security improvements.

One update of note concerns MobileMe, which is now capable of pushing updates made to calendars or contact information from the Web or an iPhone to the primary Mac within a minute. Apple had numerous problems with the launch of the MobileMe service earlier this year, and the latest update should help fix one of the more pressing issues still outstanding with the $99-a-year service.

A full list of the issues addressed with 10.5.6 can be found here, while a list of the security improvements should appear here relatively soon. If you want to download the update from Apple's Web site, go here, but the Software Update function is the easiest way to get updated.
