[Information post] the Interesting facts from history of solid-state drives

1 year ago
Hi, Giktayms! Despite a popular belief that solid-state drives are an achievement of technologies of the last ten-fifteen years, the first devices of this kind appeared in 1978 in the USA. The StorageTek company (nowadays already nonexistent) became the first vendor of the drive on semiconductors with use of a volatile memory. What else occurred from the moment of emergence of SSD — read under a cat.

Keylogger on Arduino

1 year ago

Preface


It is necessary to tell that the area use of this device is not so big. For work it is monitoring, control of working hours, information leakage protection and, probably, all.

In life this thing can well facilitate life. For example, clicked a certain keyboard shortcut — Arduino recognized them and … sent a signal to include a teapot. If not a teapot, then something another.

Neonode AirBar will turn the normal display of the notebook or the PC monitor into touch

1 year ago
We welcome our readers on pages of the blog iCover! Monitors with a touch layer on PCs screens or notebooks today so far exotic. At the same time many will probably agree that to be active a mouse on a large-format panel within the tiled concept of Windows 8-10 OS often it appears, at least, inconveniently and unproductively. Here and in similar cases benefits of a sensor which we is usual very much would be useful and with pleasure daily we use in smartphones and tablets.

Original, simple in implementations and the inexpensive solution allowing to turn the normal screen of the notebook for couple of seconds or the PC in the full-fledged touch display the Swedish company Neonode offered.

Irbis TW30 overview: the transforming tablet with Windows 10 on the Intel® Atom™ processor

1 year ago
In this overview I will shortly tell about the Irbis TW30 transforming tablet – 10,1-inch model with the "fastened" keyboard in a set and the Windows 10 operating system. The unique for today actual solution for devices of such class – the Intel® Atom™ Z3735F processor is the cornerstone of model, perhaps. Generally, we receive almost full-fledged PC for a solution of any tasks for 11 990 rubles (unless except game). However let's look what represents Irbis TW30 in practice.

[Testing] Random access memory of HyperX DDR3L — energy efficiency and performance

1 year, 1 month ago
Listen!
If stars light — means — it is necessary for somebody?

Vladimir Mayakovsky

Hi, Giktayms! Long and happy life fell to lot of the standard of random access memory of DDR3 — a lot of things changed, frequencies increased, the amount of modules grew. At the beginning (at development of the Intel Socket LGA775 platform) the value of 1,5 volts was standard supply voltage, chips were hardy, chipsets heat, and the range is extremely wide. For overkloker to give for memory less than 2,0 In was considered as a bad form, and radiators really served for heat extraction. All changed with moving of the controller of memory under a processor cover — the imagination of the enthusiast received a set of restrictions, and vendors had an opportunity to weaken timings and to reduce the cost of modules. Throughout release of all previous generations of Intel Core processors the standard of power supply remained invariable, and only in the current, sixth generation of Intel Core (SkyLake) which supports at the same time two types of random access memory — DDR3 and DDR4 — it is officially offered to use special type — DDR3L which is optimized for work with chipsets of Intel 100 series.
Under a cat — testing of a set of HyperX Fury DDR3L-1866.

PINE64 — quite powerful mini-PC for only $15

1 year, 1 month ago


If a few years ago someone told that it is possible to receive the functional personal computer for $35, just would laugh at it. Nevertheless, already now mini-PCs are on sale at the price in $5 or $9 — we will remember Raspberry Pi Zero and CHIP. However, it is impossible to call these systems powerful in any way.

It is impossible to call powerful and the new miniature PC PINE64. But it is significantly better than its characteristic, than at analogs which are on sale cheaper than $20. The PINE64 developers equipped the device with the quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 Allwinner 1.2 GHz 64-bit processor, 1 GB OZU and other buns. All this is offered at the price in $15 for younger model or $19 for senior. Soon campaign for fund raising on this miniature computer is going to start for Kickstarter.

Overview of the game video card Inno3D iChill GeForce GTX 960 Ultra (C960-2SDN-E5CNX)

1 year, 1 month ago
The choice of the video card for games – a difficult task: on the one hand prop up requests, with another financial opportunities. It is necessary to balance between desirable and valid, selecting not really expensive, but at the same time productive model. NVIDIA GTX 960 of a series 9xx is one of applicants for a rank of "golden mean", combining all advantages of architecture of Maxwell of the second generation and rather low cost.

The test sample is made by the Inno3D company, instead of a standard cooler with the turbine it is set the massive branded cooling system

Overview of a set of random access memory HyperX Fury DDR4-2400 16 Gb (2*8 Gb)

1 year, 1 month ago
Hi, Giktayms! It was repeatedly foretold that provision of memory of the DDR4 standard will be dominating by 2016. For the end of 2015 of premises to total superiority is not present, but it is more and more users, gritting the teeth and recalculating the blood, purchase new motherboards and Intel processors, and together with them new memory. What offers HyperX in this sector the market? Under a cat I deal with a set from two levels on 8 gigabytes of HyperX Fury DDR4-2400.
