Triplex – Millennium Silver Ti4800SE VIVO DVI with AGP 8x on the new NVIDIA GeForce 4 Ti4800SE GPU (i.e. Ti4400 with AGP 8x). Introducing photos:
According to Andrew, the first amazement passed after he noticed a processor "daughterboard" for these slots (except for Slot A the board features even rarer and exotic Slot B). ;-)
Samsung Electronics announced a SiP (System-in-Package), including an ARM processor, NAND flash and SDRAM memory. Samsung believes new integrated SiP components, combining all the necessary things for PDAs or smartphones will enable to signficantly reduce energy consumption and cost price of such devices.
The new SiP chip doesn’t have a disclosed name at the moment. Measured 17x17x1.4 mm, the chip includes 203MHz Samsung S3C2410 processor on ARM920T core, 256Mbit NAND flash and 256Mbit SDRAM. The novelty can work under most PDA Oses, including Microsoft Windows CE, Palm OS, Symbian, and Linux.Sony announced a new family of Pocket Bit flash trinkets with USB 2.0 interface.
New miniature Pocket Bits differ from most USB-flash devices by USB 2.0 (Hi-Speed) support and special stylish cradle – a kind of a USB-adapter. Devices of different capacity feature different body color: 16Mb (USM16S) – orange, 32Mb (USM32S) – gray, 64Mb (USM64S) – blue, 128Mb (USM128S) – silver, 256Mb (USM256S) – black.
Novelties are bundled with Windows 98/98 SE drivers, additional utils for data encryption/compression. Measured 51x8x17 mm, Sony Pocket Bit devices weigh only 7 g; cradle has 50x52x50 mm dimensions, weighing 78 g. No installation is required under Windows XP/ME/2000/98 SE/98 and Mac OS 9.0+ (though USB 1.1 only). Novelties are to arrive to retail late in February. Pricing information is unavailable at the moment.
TrueMobile 1150 is an IEEE 802.11b wireless Ethernet solution that provides connectivity with TrueMobile Base Station at up to 11Mbps throughput in 160m radius in the line of sight along with automatic speed chainging between 11, 5.5, 2 or 1 Mbps and 64-bit WEP encryption.
According to Japanese press, now standard Latitude C400 with 1GHz Mobile Pentium III-M (i830M chipset), 128Mb SDRAM, 20Gb HDD, 12.1" XGA LCD display, 24x CD-ROM and Windows XP Professional (SP1) will cost about $1600.
And a standard Latitude X200 with 933MHz ULV Mobile Pentium III-M (i830MG chipset), 128Mb SDRAM, 30Gb HDD, 12.1" XGA LCD display, external 24x CD-ROM and Windows XP Professional (SP1) will cost about $1560.
I think the most important was that conference members named a new date for mainstreaming DDR2 SDRAM for desktops, having moved the "deadline" to 2005 from the previous late 2003 / early 2004. Analysts believe that delay in DDR2 SDRAM mainstreaming is the result of chipset and motherboard certification delays and also of lesser "enthusiasm" of PC makers about this memory. So, despite DRAM makers have already presented DDR2 samples, all factors combined will delay DDR2 volume releases by about 12-18 months. Analysts think that the next quarter will bring some more specified dates of moving to DDR2. At the same time, delays with desktop and server DDR2 release won´t affect the adaptation of this memory for graphics, because the point-to-point interface used doesn’t require module organization, chipset, mobo, etc. intercertification.
Naturally, there’s always something to fill the gap between DDR1-333 and future DDR2, and DDR1-400 will be this "filler" this time. The mainstream launch will be initiated by Intel Springdale Canterwood, expected next quarter, and server systems will follow. According to provisional information, ServerWorks´ Grand Champion SLX, scheduled to H1 2003, will become one of the first to support DDR1-400. As for DDR2, at the Platform Conference ServerWorks named 2005 as well.
