Motion Computing introduces M1400 Tablet PC on the new 1.1GHz ULV Pentium M processor

Strangely, but the recent announcement of four Intel´s new mobile processors didn´r result in a wave of product releases. Perhaps, vendors are finishing their solutions or maybe just waiting for Dothan-based Pentium M. Anyway, there was still a number of novelties on 1.1GHz ULV Pentium M, one of them being Centrino-based Motion M1400 Tablet PC.

The novelty bases on integrated Intel 855GME, has 256MB DDR333 (up to 2GB), 12.1" touch display, 20/40/60GB HDD, Intel PRO/Wireless 2200 BG 802.11 and Bluetooth, biometric sensor. The bundle includes a USB keyboard and on-table support. Sized 296x240x22mm, Motion M1400 Tablet PC weighs slightly over 1kg. The model ships with Windows XP Tablet PC Edition for $1999 and over.

Exclusive information on ATI R420/R423

Our friends from French Clubic sent us a blurb of some of their exclusive information on ATI´s R420/R423 GPUs:

"Reliable industry sources relatively close to ATI, told french website Clubic.com, ATI is going to have a sixteen pixel pipelines part starting this spring. Being part of the R420 familly this part is supposed to be a R420 and will likely be available in AGP 8x & PCI-Express 16x flavors.

This news comes as a big surprise since the upcoming so called X800 was supposed to be a 12 pixel pipelines only VPU which would have fallen short in terms of performance when compared to NVIDIA´s brand new NV40."

You can find more of it here.

LaCie ships 19" Photon19vision lCD monitors

Soon LaCie will be shipping its new 19" Photon19vision LCD monitors to Europe, North America and Japan.

Photon19vision supports resolutions up to 1280x1024, 250cd/m², 400:1 contrast. Sized 511x526x332mm, it weighs 9.1kg. The device meets VESA 100 specs featuring a detachable support that enables to mounting the monitor on a wall or just lay it on the table. The novelty has VGA, DVI and ADC interfaces and 4-port USB hub.

Working under Windows and Mac OS, the display will cost in Europe about €635.

MSI graphics cards on ATI GPUs: specs, photos, costs

Rumours that MSI, that previously used only NVIDIA GPUs in its graphics cards, is going to launch a number of ATI-based products become a constant part of the news. MSI declared adherence to NVIDIA GPUs only officially, while actually already in winter MSI was rumoured to ship OEM cards on RADEON 9600 XT to Medion, the European reseller.

So, it was very interesting to see the almost final proof of MSI shipping ATI-based cards to European companies at PC Lab.pl.

Polish colleagues introduced photos and specs of three boards: RX9200SE-T128 — RADEON 9200 SE, 128MB of 64-bit memory, 269 zloty (w/taxes) or $69;

RX9600SE-TD128 — RADEON 9600 SE, 128MB of 64-bit memory, 419 zloty or $107;

RX9800 PRO Plus-TD128 SP — RADEON 9800 PRO, 128MB of 256-bit memory, 1299 zloty or $332.

Meanwhile, MSI hasn´t yet published any official confirmations on its website, perhaps, dating it to some major event. To ATI R420 release maybe? ;)
