India-based Micromax, known only for its A116 Canvas HD smartphone from last year, is now getting into the convertible tablet game with the Canvas Laptab. It functions with both Windows 8.0 and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean OS choices, and is powered by a 1.46GHz Intel Celeron CPU.
Over the weekend, Intel added seven CPUs to its budget line of Ivy Bridge-based processors. Seven new models have been added to the Pentium and Celeron lines. The Celeron family has added the G1610, G1610T, and G1620. The Pentium line sees the G2010, G2020, and G2020T. Also supplementing the lower end of the Intel range is the new Core i3-3210. All processors work in existing socket 1155 motherboards.
A new Samsung Chromebook prototype that looks to be based on the Series 5 we saw at CES but sporting some new changes was spotted at the Intel Developer Forum in Beijing. It runs on the current Sandy Bridge-series of Intel processors, unlike that dual-core Celeron-powered Chromebook from the Las Vegas trade show. It also gets the Linux-based Coreboot BIOS software that allows it to boot up in just five seconds.
Intel has released seven new processors. All are based on its current Sandy Bridge 32nm architecture. The new CPUs include three desktop quad Core i5 processors as well as dual- and single-core Celeron processors for both the desktop and mobile.
Samsung had one of its most sweeping notebook updates yet at CES this week and introduced multiple major updates to its notebook line. We had the opportunity to try them all at CES and came away with mixed reactions. Read on for early impressions, including whether or not the Series 9 will give Apple heat in the ultrabook category.
Following a desktop slip, details of Intel's notebook versions of its Ivy Bridge processor lineup have leaked as well. The lineup seen by VR-Zone will simplify into just U-series ultra-low voltage chips that use 17W and full-power M-series chips that use 35W, 45W, or 55W depending on the model. All 25W chips have disappeared now that PC builders can dial down the peak power themselves.
AMD claims that it has set a Guinness World Record for speed in a CPU. The company recorded an top frequency of 8.429GHz using an overclocked FX eight-core processor. The previous top speed, 8.309GHz, was set using a single-core Intel Celeron D 352.
Intel is giving PC builders a strong financial incentive to support its new ultrabook category and get more systems like the MacBook Air, those in the notebook industry alleged Monday morning. The company has reportedly "invested heavily" into marketing the ultraportable PC idea and courting the largest companies to have them sign on to the idea. Many of them don't believe they can match the MacBook Air's $1,000 price, Digitimes says, and are testing but not necessarily producing ultrabooks of their own.
Samsung had more than its Series 9 notebook in store for its New York City event Wednesday as it put out three new portables targeted at pro users. The Series 2, 4, and 6 all get special treatment with a more durable, spill-resistant shell and metal hinges, as well as a long three-year warranty and phone support in the US for detailed troubleshooting. The Series 4 and 6 go a step further with fingerprint readers, a trust module, and (on the 6) a magnesium alloy shell that reportedly improves its longevity again.
Dell on Tuesday focused some attention on its pro-level Precision and Optiplex systems. Its most Precision M4600 and M6600 are the most genuinely new models and also the most secretive. The two should replace the 15.6-inch and 17-inch existing workstation notebooks and are likely to use Intel's 2011 Core (Sandy Bridge) processors along with new workstation graphics and a slightly refreshed design.
