A HD 6790 with expensive step?

To offer a competitive graphics solution, Yeston opts for a chip Radeon HD 6790 and tries to position itself in the entry level of this class of GPU.

Yeston, Chinese manufacturer of graphics cards with aggressive pricing, offers a model of AMD Radeon HD 6790 which could attract players who have a limited budget. The design of the card and GPU cooler partly explain the savings made ??by Yeston, which proposes that around $ 125.


The cooler also resembles that of the MSI Cyclone. Instructed to release the heat from the GPU, it is connected by two copper heat pipes (or nickel coated copper) to small spiral fins. The 80mm fan blowing over the fins at low speeds.

The card itself is powered by a 6-pin connector standard PCI-Express and centered around the GPU clocked at 840 MHz, carrying 800 stream processors and 1GB of GDDR5 RAM on a 256-bit memory bus. Output, there are two DVI ports, one HDMI 1.4a and DisplayPort 1.2. Remember that the Radeon HD 6790 is positioned just below the 6850 in performance.

Remains to be seen if it will land with us at a price lower than the HD 6790 1GB Sapphire found around € 110 in the graphics section of our price comparison.

Will the manufacturers of PC stop the shelves?

While the market shelves is thriving on the eve of festivals, some pessimistic voices rise and believe that the traditional brands in the sector do not have the weapons to fight against sellers of contents ...


If one could accuse Apple of trying to create a need with his iPad, we must recognize that the market shelves has indeed taken, even pushing some manufacturers in the computing world history to evoke the era of post-PC. We will not go that far, even though the figures suggest a rapid adoption of the tablet format. So, all manufacturers are getting into, with diverse and varied strategies. But if we are to believe the opinion of some spécialistent, the market could grow to the detriment of big names in the PC.

Indeed, wholesalers middle just explain to DigiTimes that from 2012, Acer, Asus, Dell, or HP may begin to rethink their strategies on the market shelves to disengage gradually. A withdrawal could be very fast if the first results given by Windows 8 tablets are bad. Of course, they advance a few theories to explain these predictions.

One of them, who wishes to remain anonymous, said: "The big computer manufacturers have no advantage in the competition on the market shelves. They can not necessarily play their expertise, do not benefit from their usual economies of scale and they can not rely on ecosystems of content as can Apple, Amazon or Barnes & Noble (...) The only chance they have to glean market share is Android to choose and try to offer products at more competitive prices. But they do not. In the end, all they could gather, they are crumbs. "

One way of looking at things different from that of those manufacturers who seek, instead, to design the best possible shelf of a technological point of view and rely on the OS they integrate to provide their customers with solutions to interesting the content. The ecosystem of applications already developed on Android and on which Microsoft put Windows 8 should satisfy users. Still, sources said, it will be very difficult for companies from around the PC to be a place alongside the Apple iPad Kindle and other Fire and Nook, tablets sold at very competitive prices and rely on content.

"In the future, the tablets will be offered in exchange for subscriptions to the content" believes knowing one of the respondents. "The enthusiasm for the tablets is currently down, which will accelerate once the technophiles will all be equipped. Therefore, all that remains for sale, it's a new way of consuming content "she concludes.

Here are some laptops to watch in this catch-all category.

Why the Asus ROG? Already because we like the design of the chassis and its bias toward a certain sobriety compared to machines "gamer" that compete with Christmas lights tamper-les-goose.

Motorola Razr and Xoom 2: we tested them!

On the occasion of the launch party of Motorola Razr 2 and Xoom tablets, we were able to take control of these Android devices to deliver you our first impressions.

Conference Motorola Novembre 2011 (1).JPG

If you follow diligently the current high-tech, including PCWorld, you are probably aware, Motorola Mobility (being acquired by Google) is waking up and is positioned at the end of year on terminals Android high-end with three exciting new products: the smartphone and tablet Xoom Razr 2 (10.1'') and Xoom Media Edition 2 (8.2''). Three products already presented in our columns we had the chance to try last night at a launch event in Paris. Needless to say we did not pray for made ??three crushing machines that share look, philosophy, characteristics and ambition.

Not necessarily remember all the characteristics of the Razr, which prides itself on being the thinnest smartphone in the world, we must recognize that this is an impressive Androphone. What is striking at first is of course the fine hand. 7.1 mm on almost all of the surface, it does not leave indifferent even if it is imposing with its 4.3''screen, this finesse allows it to remain very discreet in his pocket. This is clearly one of its most significant assets, even if it leaves no tell otherwise. We must recognize its QHD display (960 x 540) AMOLED Super Plus (a Samsung?) Good qualities, with really bright colors. As for the overall design is a box full, the mix of black graphite and metallic reflections gives the smartphone a nice pace. Especially the build quality will be one of the highlights of the campaign from Motorola. Treaty on the outside and inside to be hydrophobic and withstand drops of rain as the glass of water falling, the Razr also has the look of his back with unbreakable Kevlar and glass Gorilla Glass.

Difficult to evaluate the sensor 8 MP camera in low light (noise quite marked and LED flash, which tends to burn out the subjects too close) but the recorded video in 1080p seem to go pretty well. As for the rest of the features is the high-end SoC with a dual-core 1.2 GHz, which decodes the HD, 1 GB RAM and 16 GB of ROM expandable to 48 GB with microSD. Compatible WiFi dual-band 2.4 and 5 GHz, it embeds a 1780 mAh battery that promises a battery life of 250 hours standby, 450 minutes talk time and 120 minutes in conf 'video. Already in shops € 549 naked, and 49 € with SFR formula Square Web (through an offer of repayment of € 100 on the season), the Motorola Razr moved immediately from the Android smartphones most prominent. Especially if it comes with Gingerbread 2.3, it will have its upgrade to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich by early next year.

The side of the Xoom 2, Motorola associated himself with the variation in two screen sizes as did Samsung with its Galaxy Tab. Thus, it will take 2 with Xoom and IPS of 10.1''screen at 1280 x 800 and 2 Xoom Media Edition and IPS screen of 8.2''to the same definition. Do not ask "why Media Edition", no one is able to comment on the choice of the most questionable marketing. Like Samsung, there is actually little that differentiate the two models increased their size. The 8.2''is just slightly thicker (0.1 mm), it is lighter with 385 g against 599 g, and loads a battery of 3900 mAh (about 6 hours of browsing via WiFi) against 7000 mAh (about 10:20 in navigation WiFi) to 10.1''.

For the rest, the hearts-hearts with OMAP dual-core 1.2 GHz ARM Cortex A9, 1 GB RAM and 16 GB of storage (a 32GB model is available in 10.1 ' '). After a quick test in SunSpider Benchmark 0.9.1 and Pi - they never change - the Xoom 2 are a little hair better than tablets Honeycomb / Tegra 2 spent writing. So it's more in the HD decoding the difference may be even on real multi-threaded applications. The 5 MP sensor cash back video in 1080p then found a 1.3 MP front. In short, Motorola offers a real choice of screen size to the consumer, and positions of a tariff perspective skilfully with both models, the Xoom 2 being launched at € 459 and 2 Xoom Media Edition to 399 € .

Essai Motorola Xoom 2 (1).JPG Essai Motorola Xoom 2 ME (1).JPG

The Xoom 10.1 2 "left, and the Media Edition 8.2" on the right

In hand, these two make a good impression Xoom. It's hard with the integration on the back button on / off and volume, as well as pregnant misplaced for holding the tablet in landscape mode. But we must recognize that the quality is there, again with considerable finesse and an original design with beveled corners such that shock less than what one would think. The tablet running Android 3.2 Honeycomb, but will also have the right to switch to 4.0 by early next year. Also oriented productivity, the company's market is historically important for Motorola, these tablets will be complemented by a complete set of accessories, from pen to keyboard, mouse and dock.

Beyond their design and their design, these three Android devices Motorola will obviously need some additional benefits to stand out on the market. They can count as such - not on a customization of Android as polished as that of its Samsung Galaxy Tab - but on two main applications Exclusive: MotoCast and SmartACT. Operation is simple and has two real mobility needs. The principle is simple MotoCast, as is that of streaming media. After installing an app on his computer (PC or Mac), telephone or shelf clock access, WiFi and 3G, the content of it (provided it stays on and connected of course), that 'This is audio, video and photo. After a short demonstration, it actually looks very simple and functional.

Essai Motorola Xoom 2 (4).JPG Essai Motorola Xoom 2 (5).JPG Essai Motorola Xoom 2 ME (5).JPG Essai Motorola Xoom 2 ME (4).JPG

As for SmartACT, this is an application that allows you to define rules and actions based on the conditions for using the terminal, including taking advantage of the geolocation. For example, this allows the phone to tell it to automatically turn off WiFi when you leave the workplace and back on once at home, or the tablet to lower the brightness of the screen when the battery level drops below 20%. In short, the little rules that seem harmless, but can make life easier and improve the user experience, the goal of all players in the market today. Nothing necessarily new applications to do this already on the Market, but the integration of these features is a good thing especially since they seem to be well thought out.

Qualcomm on the war footing for its Snapdragon S4

An update of Snapdragon S1 and S4 of the imminent arrival promises a war without thank you in the market for mobile processors.


Recently, we introduced its Nvidia Tegra processor 3. Lot of power for this new mobile architecture that has in the stomach.

The Snapdragon S4 could even be 63% more energy efficient than the previous generation of Qualcomm SoC in common tasks. Coupled with new batteries, also ever more efficient, it could ultimately enable mobile devices to enjoy autonomy lengthened. Other information given by the Vice President attached to the Marketing, Tim McDonough, Qualcomm is currently working with Microsoft for this ARM chip is optimized to perfectly run Windows 8.

As for references S4 Snapdragon chips, here's the list that you can recognize them in the technical equipment: MSM8660A, MSM8260A, MSM8630, MSM8230, MSM8627, MSM8227, and APQ8030 APQ8060A. Note that Qualcomm does not let its mobile processors to entry-level on the side of the road. The manufacturer preparing to refresh four models in the S1 (MSM7225A, MSM7625A, MSM7227A, MSM7627A).

Qualcomm, which also enjoys developing applications to demonstrate the power of its products, has added three upcoming games to the schedule in 2012 (The Ball, Galaga and Heroes Fight Special Edition) from its site, which will join its gaming space a hundred references already present.

La virtualisation n'est pas en reste avec le support des dernières versions de KVM, Xen 4.1 et de VirtualBox, pilotables par les versions à jour de virt-manager ou encore open-vm-tools. En profondeur, cette nouvelle distribution démarrera plus vite grâce à systemd préalablement développé pour Fedora, les équipes de développements d'openSuse ayant travaillé de concert avec celles de Fedora pour l'intégrer dans cette version. Le système de fichier btrfs sera également de la partie, comme un outil de snapshot inclus baptisé snapper. Enfin, pour les contributeurs ou les développeurs, il est également ajouté le langage de programmation de Google dénommé Go, de LLVM3 ou encore de GCC 4.6.2.

Intel Ivy Bridge-E: compatible X79 and LGA 2011?

And if the Ivy Bridge-E is compatible with the recently launched LGA 2011?

So just to test the Sandy Bridge-E Intel that are slow to point the tip of their nose Server versions, a slide from a presentation by leaked internal depth Xfastest reveals the existence of Ivy Bridge-E ... Remember, the Ivy Bridge are the future Intel processors, the Core i third generation that will be engraved in 22 nm.

These Ivy Bridge-E models are therefore high-end of the new series of processors, and where the slide is very interesting is that it suggests that these Ivy Bridge-E x79 chipset could use the d Intel and could therefore be backwards compatible with all motherboards with socket LGA 2011 now coming out for Sandy Bridge-E. This would allow the socket to have a greater than expected longevity, and enhance the interest of a sudden the platform Intel has just launched.
Xfastest Ivy Bridge-E Slide

If this compatibility is confirmed by Intel, it means that the founder is to increase the longevity of its sockets. A note when the current LGA 1155 processors will accommodate Ivy Bridge. Ivy Bridge-E of which should be available in late 2012 in all probability. Remains to be seen, as can be expected, these processors incorporate 8-core assets.

Inventory of fixtures of the market of the mobile: Nokia leader threatened and to be able catch of Android

It moves in the market for mobile telephony. Small dot on the waltz of the market shares of manufacturers and OS.


Worldwide, sales of mobile continues to grow in the third quarter of the year according to figures released by Gartner. Between July and September, it sold a total of 440.5 million mobile or 5.6% from a year ago.

On the one hand the Finnish manufacturer of mobile delivered 117 million over the same period a year earlier, and also its main competitors have been strengthened. Nokia is counting on the launch of its Windows Phone Lumia, and other models arriving in 2012, to rise again.

Its market share 0.6 points wins and goes to 17.8%, thanks to the success of its Android smartphones in the Galaxy. The difference between these two top of the class with the third manufacturer in the world, remains open, since the other Korean, LG, is the third of the market with 4.8% market share (- 1.8 points) for a total of 21 million phone delivered. Apple follows with 17.3 million iPhones sold, against 13.5 million a year earlier, allowing its market share from 3.2% to 3.9%.
