  • Liquid cooling come to future iMacs, Macs in general? Eh…don’t get too excited…yet.

    As Apple transitions more towards actual desktop processors in the iMac line, heat is going to be an issue. The next logical step would be to add water cooling. But such setups take up pretty generous amounts of room -- something the iMac doesn't really have much of. But when there's a will, there's a way. A patent filed way back in '06 showed Apple to be working on a type of iMac water cooled dock. While a dock and an actual iMac implementation are two completely different things, as proce...
  • HTC Scorpion claims “most lusted after Android device” title…for the next few days anyway.

    Think the HTC Incredible is where it's at for future Android phones? Sure it's pretty meaty on paper. But that was last week's paper. This week is completely different and in need of a new "savior". The Android desires of lust from last week were powered by wimpy 1.0GHz processors. The HTC Scorpion: 1.5GHz. As excited as I am, I have to stress that this is rumor for now. A rumor I very much hope materializes. Any doubts you may have can be slightly contained as after looking over tha...
  • G1 and MyTouch 3G pushed to 780MHz and 1GHz. Nuclear explosion soon thereafter…

    The Motorola DROID may be stealing a majority of the rooted Android articles with things such as 2.1 goodies ported over or 1GHz overclocking, but it's hardly the only kid at the playground. The G1 and MyTouch 3G may be older, slower, and generally less desirable when compared to the likes of the DROID and Nexus One, but those aging devices still have some kick left in them. Thanks to Eugene373 over at xda-forums, the MT3G (read: MyTouch 3G/HTC Magic) and G1 have been overclocked just like ...
  • Retailer internal computer systems never lie — New Macbook Pro’s all but certain.

    Posted February 8th, 2010 at 8:38 pm
    Are new Macbook Pros right around the corner? You could say the leaked images a couple of days back showing a Core i7 Macbook Pro being put through the paces as nothing more than some clever Photoshop mastery. I'm more of an optimist however. I'm choosing to take the higher road. A road which eventually leads to new, more powerful Macbook Pros. You could say my head is stuck up in the clouds and that I'm a too much of a dreamer. That may be true, but the images above combined with new evi...
  • Intel launches “Itanium” microprocessor with 2 billion transistors.
    by Mike
    Posted February 8th, 2010 at 2:21 pm
    There's fast, and then there's really fast. Intel's latest "Itanium" supercomputer grade processor definitely falls into the latter. It's an easy shoe in really, with 2 billtion -- yes, 2 billion -- transistors on board. The processor itself is made up of four cores. Up to 8 of these chips can be put together in a single server setting, netting the end user a full 32 cores of processing power. According to Intel, it can go even higher. Third parties who purchase the Itanium chips have the ...
  • 1.3GHz and dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon processors coming later this year?
    by Mike
    Posted February 7th, 2010 at 4:42 pm
    For now, being on "the top" of the smartphone world means you have in your possession, one of a few select phones packing a 1GHz Snapdragon processor inside. Only a few short years ago, such power in the palm of your hands was nothing more than a dream. My how times change. The technology world as we all know doesn't stay in one place for very long. What is hot today (1GHz Snapdragon processors) become old and slow by tomorrow's technological standards. Standards that just so happen to incl...
  • Texas Instruments creates uber device to show off extra uber OMAP4 chip.
    by Mike
    Posted February 2nd, 2010 at 11:13 pm
    **Gallery and Movie below There are times in life where I'm truly in awe, stuck in a transfixed position, mouth open, drool and all. Slashgear's early coverage of some MWC goodness provided by TI is nothing to sneeze at. The main topic of their brief visit to TI's headquarters down south was to check out their new OMAP4 mobile processor. Showing off the processor was a concept device that while insanely amazing, has absolutely zero chance of making it to market. Sad, I know. But the ch...
  • Apple to get exclusive early access to 6-Core “Gulftown” processors?
    by Mike
    Posted February 2nd, 2010 at 10:14 am
    It wouldn't be the first time you know. Apple has over the years received special attention when it comes to the brainy silicon chips that power everything inside our computers. Everyone is currently rantin' and ravin' about the Core i7 iMac's (both good and bad). And for most general consuemrs, the Core i7 (heck, even the Core 2 Duo and i5 variants) are more than plenty. But we're not "normal" are we? New word on the streets is that we can expect to see Apple enjoy a similar exclusive pe...
  • Overclockers reach 8.1999.5MHz with Celeron D347 processor. Self destruction immediately ensues.
    by Mike
    Posted January 26th, 2010 at 8:45 am
    Speed. Oh how we love pure, UI boosting speed. Back in the day, hearing of crazy overclocking events was a common thing. Now that most of the goals and awards have been doled out and upper limits reached, the scene has died down considerably. But that doesn't mean that no one is at least attempting any more. A ballsy overclocker by the name of TiN managed to push his Celeron D 347 up to 8.199.5MHz -- just a touch over 8GHz! To reach such stratospheric numbers, TiN made use of liquid nit...
  • AMD launches all out cheap speed assault.
    by Mike
    Posted January 25th, 2010 at 2:19 pm
    Those in the market for the latest in gaming prowess, the fastest of the fast, and the most beautiful of graphics don't usually spend anywhere south of $400-500+ for a processor. But for most users in general, a lower to mid-range processor is more than enough for daily chores. As has been the story for the last several years, AMD's latest assortment of budget processors won't beat the pants off of Intel's latest and greatest, but they will cut the competition in the knees when it comes to che...
  • The camera phone in 2011: 20-megapixels, 1080p video recording.

    Posted December 16th, 2009 at 11:22 am
    Gushing over the 8+ megapixel camera phones grabbing all the headlines and attention in 2009? Psh, that's nothing compared to what 2011 will bring us. Broadcom announced today a new processor of theirs that will usher in a new era and raise the bar as far as mobile picture/video taking is concerned. The chip, named the Broadcom BCM2763 VideoCore IV Processor will enable mobile phones and other MID's to support Full HD 1080p video recording as well as 20+ megapixel stills. But that's not ...
  • 6-core i9 i7 Extreme (Gulftown) processors detailed in leaked spec sheet.
    by Mike
    Posted December 15th, 2009 at 1:02 pm
    2 cores? What is this, 2005? 4 cores? Still yesterday's news. 6-cores? Now we're talkin'. In the mad race to the top of the processor heap, once achieving the fastest clock speed came and went with manufacturers moving their focus from speed to cores, the processor scene was upped multiple notches. What started as dual core and then progressed to quad-core would ultimately lead to the next logical advancement -- 6-core. Such is the beast that lives within the upcoming Gulftown processors....
  • AMD overclocks processor to 7GHz! Melts everything in site.
    by Mike
    Posted November 13th, 2009 at 8:29 pm
    Speed is something that attracts humans like most other forces on this planet can do. The pursuit of adrenaline and the high that it brings is an unstoppable force. But this isn't a car blog which means I'm not talking about a car. I'm talking about the fastest 1's and 0's you've ever seen as well as a healthy dose of liquids that in the normal atmosphere of earth are two states higher on the totem pole of matter. AMD succeeded at overclocking a processor of their own up to a mind blowing ...
  • ARM’s announces their Cortex A5 multi-core mobile processor

    Posted October 21st, 2009 at 12:23 pm
    Current smartphones may suffer from laggy interfaces and stuttering multimedia performance because of weak internal hardware. Fret no more, put away those tissues and slap a smile on that pretty little mouth of yours as such experiences will soon be a thing of the past. The savior? ARM's new Cortex A5 multi-core processor should certainly take care of all current slowness and then some. Labeled by ARM as “the smallest, lowest power ARM multicore processor capable of delivering the Internet...
  • Xperia X3 to pack the fastest version of Android yet?
    by Mike
    Posted October 18th, 2009 at 11:59 am
    Speed freaks looking forward to an Android device that can be used without lag from such simple things as swiping between homescreens, fresh rumors cropping up surrounding the upcoming Xperia X3 are quite the head turner. The monstrous 4-inch 852 x 480 touchscreen may be enough for some. Even the 8 megapixel camera will seal the deal for many more naysayers. But the real proof in the pudding is the reported usage of the highly sought after Snapdragon processor. Said processor is better than ...
  • Archos “Phone/Tablet” bringing 4.3″ display, Android, 1GHz CPU and the fulfillment of many hopes and dreams?
    by Mike
    Posted September 16th, 2009 at 5:54 am
    Archos is certainly poised to launch an all out assault on the mobile market place if they keep showcasing and releasing products such as this mysterious and so far unknown device. This unnamed beaut is so far known to pack Android, a 4.3" WVGA touchscreen (capacitive?), 1GHz ARM CPU, plus many other specs that are sure to leave most other handsets second guessing their existence. This will definitely be a handset worth following. Stay tuned to find out if this unit becomes a true power pla...
  • “Rachel” bringing a speedy Android 2.0 to Sony Ericsson
    by Mike
    Posted July 6th, 2009 at 6:36 am
    While Sony hasn't exactly had any whiz dingers in regards to knock-your-socks-off handsets as they fall short in either hardware or software, the leaked image and early specs of their code named device, "Rachel" will surely make any geek drool. The goods include an Android 2.0 release, the much sought after 1GHz Snapdragon processor, 8 megapixel auto-focus camera, "great 3D/graphics capabilities", and support for 7.2Mbps 3G speeds. These are but a few drops in the bucket compared to the full...
  • Defy all common sense and scientific laws: Windows 7 Ultimate on a Pentium II
    by Mike
    Posted June 24th, 2009 at 11:47 am
    *Chuckles*. Yes folks, some one has done it. Just when you thought you couldn't get any more bored/adventurous, someone like PC enthusiast Hackerman1 comes along and does something crazy like putting Windows 7 on a Pentium II computer. Why? Well why not? Just to prove he can of course! As far as basic specs go, underpowered is a gross understatement. A 266MHz processor, 96MB of RAM, and 4MB graphics card round out the much too old spec sheet. Obviously such measly hardware earns nothin...

    Want to know what makes the iPhone 3G S purrr? Do you have a knack for tearing things apart to find what digital parts are lurking inside?
