AMD Presents FirePro A320 & A300 APUs: Trinity for Artwork Workstations

AMD Presents FirePro A320 & A300 APUs: Trinity for Artwork Workstation

Workstation Rental

At its Financial Analyst Day early in the day this season, its vision was laid out by AMD money for hard times of the organization. For the absolute most part the technique seemed nearly the same as what AMD was said to be performing all along, now with a powerful motivation behind it. One main topic of the brand new AMD was speed. As an organization significantly smaller than Intel, AMD must certanly be able to maneuver as an effect a lot faster. Unfortuitously, oftentimes that merely was not the case. The brand new executive group at AMD pledged to influence and restore that missing speed, partly by delivering services and products targeted to particular regional areas and verticals where they may be quite aggressive. In the place of just fight the huge fight with Intel across an extensive market, the AMD may concentrate on areas where Intel possibly isn’t present or reaches a disadvantage and use its speed to quickly start services and products to compete there.

One of the very first cases of AMD’s fast acting is in the current statement of a brand new FirePro number of APUs. On the computer and in cellular we’ve Trinity based APUs. The FirePro APUs are targeted at workstations that require professional quality artwork individuals but are good with entry level GPU efficiency.

At a higher degree sense is made by the FirePro APU. Just like cpu artwork might in the course of time be adequate for all customers, exactly the same could be said about workstation users. Maybe today is just a bit too soon for that crossover, however, you need certainly to begin somewhere.

Rising against Intel in an industry that does benefit artwork performance matches the nimble AMD necessity, even though it remains to be viewed just how much of an encumbrance slower scalar x86 performance is in these workstation applications.

AMD’s determination behind carrying out a FirePro APU is simple: workstation/enterprise items could be offered at reduced when compared with equally sized desktop/notebook components. Simply take exactly the same Trinity die, set it with FirePro individuals you’ve already constructed for the large distinct GPUs, and the combination can be sold by you for a little more income with very little extra expense. Any such thing AMD may do at this time to improve income based on current styles is just a necessary work.

The chips are effortlessly renamed “quad-core” Trinity APUs with completely highlighted, 384 primary VLIW4 Northern Islands/Cayman produced GPU. There’s number sign of GPU increase assistance, with max GPU wavelengths established at 800MHz and 760MHz for both components. There’s quite a substantial space in TDP between the two chips, showing us a great deal about how exactly much it requires to achieve the A320’s larger lamps.

Your competition for these FirePro APUs is Intel’s Xeon with P4000 design (P4000 may be the professional edition of the HD 4000 we’ve on the computer IVB components). I’ve maybe not personally completed any comparisons between AMD’s FirePro individuals and what Intel offers you with the P4000, so I’ll postpone on drawing any conclusions here, but obviously that at the very least from the efficiency viewpoint AMD must have a substantial benefit. Given the long history of creating professional artwork individuals, I’d maybe not be amazed to see some benefits there as well.

Whilst the A300/A320 won’t be accessible in the route any pricing information haven’t been released by amd. The FirePro APUs are OEM only and are mainly directed at areas like India where inexpensive, professional artwork workstations are seemingly in popular.

Lapotp review HP Envy Sleekbook 6

Lapotp review HP Envy Sleekbook 6

One thin 15-inch HP Envy Sleekbook 6 Laptop  has an Intel Ivy Bridge CPU and is called an ultrabook, while this specific model, the 15-inch HP Envy 6 Sleekbook (the 6-1010us, specifically) is instead called a sleekbook, because it has an AMD CPU and a handful of other component differences.

The look and feel are very similar, and this is one of the thinnest 15-inch laptops you can find, in either the sleekbook or ultrabook versions. In fact, the AMD model reviewed here might even have an edge over the Intel one, because it costs just $599, versus a minimum of $799 for the HP Envy 15-inch with the official ultrabook tag.

You’ll trade some performance for the cost savings, and AMD’s latest chip family (the company calls it an APU rather than a CPU, which is an Accelerated Processing Unit, combining a CPU and GPU in one package) still don’t measure up to Intel’s third-generation Core i-series processors in power or efficiency. But, battery life was better than expected and the AMD A6 inside is more than capable of handling everyday online tasks.

Price as reviewed $599
Processor 2.1GHz AMD A6-4455M APU
Memory 4GB, 667MHz DDR3
Hard drive 500GB 5,400rpm
Chipset AMD 1410h
Graphics AMD Radeon HD 7500G
Operating System Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit)
Dimensions (WD) 14.7 x 10 inches
Height 0.78 inches
Screen size (diagonal) 15.6 inches
System weight / Weight with AC adapter 4.6/5.4 pounds
Category Midsize

HP includes a one-year parts-and-labor warranty (although I’ve seen other, more expensive, HP Envy laptops start with a two-year plan). Warranty upgrades are confusing, with discounts that don’t show up until you’ve added a specific plan and laptop to your shopping cart. I was able to add a three-year extended warranty, including on-site service and accidental damage protection, for $230, after an arbitrary $99 “discount.”

HP’s service and support tools are perfectly navigable, and product manuals and software and driver downloads were easy to find. The 24-7 toll-free number can be tricky to spot, however. It’s 800-474-6836.

The HP Envy 6-1010us is best described as a pleasant surprise. Would it be a great $899 laptop? Not really, but for $599, it’s a great midsize laptop for those willing to trade a little performance for some sharp looks.

The good: The HP Envy Sleekbook 6 has a great design for a great price, and includes Beats Audio and decent graphics.

The bad: You’re trading down to AMD’s A-series processors, which are not as fast or power efficient as comparable Intel parts. Unlike actual ultrabooks, this doesn’t have a solid-state hard drive. Some of the construction still feels a bit budget.

The bottom line: The ultrabook-like HP Envy Sleekbook 6 is the sharpest-looking $599 laptop you’re likely to find, although you’ll pay a performance premium.

Find which one is best laptop or Tablet?

There is a lot of rubbish being written about how tablets are supplanting laptops.

Tablets have made an enormous impact, there is no doubt about it. Over a million, by far the majority of them iPads, have been sold in Australia over the last two years.Desktop PCs lost out against laptops once their prices converged, but now even laptop sales are suffering as more and more people shift to the tablet paradigm.

The market has led some to predict the death of the Desktop PC. That is unlikely to happen – both device types have their place. Tablets are great devices for consuming information, but they are not so good at creating it. PCs shine for heavy duty input and high level processing – the sort of work performed by the so-called “power users”.

So will the functional difference between the two devices. Microsoft’s new Surface tablet (at least the higher end Surface Pro) will run a full version of Microsoft’s new Windows 8 operating system, and have virtually all the capabilities of a laptop PC. It will have a full size keyboard that doubles as a cover for the screen, as well as tablet touch screen capability. Is it a tablet or a PC?

Microsoft’s Surface Pro comes in way over the iPad in price and functionality, and the Nexus comes in way under. The Nexus is smaller, much cheaper, and tied much more to the cloud – processing and storage on the Internet – which is the model Google sees as the future of information processing.

Microsoft talks about cloud processing,but it still has a PC mindset, with apps and data within the local device. Google has a very different ethos – it has taken to heart the mantra of Scott McNealy, the founder of Sun Microsystems, who famously said “the network is the computer.”

Do you want a tablet that works like a PC and costs as much as a PC, or do you want a tablet that weighs and costs less than half as much, and which draws its data and its apps – and its inspiration – from the Internet? Or do you want an iPad?

I can’t see any device type winning out over any other. Different functionality, different size (sorry – “form factor”), different purpose.
