InnoVISION introduces InnoDV recording tuner

InnoVISION introduced its new original solution — external InnoDV Portable TV/Video Real-time Recorder.

This USB2.0 product is designed for both notebook users and desktop owners who care about their workplace organization.

The device supports NTSC/PAL and enables to record TV shows with PowerVCR for further burning to VCD/DVD in WinDVD Creator.

Tejas and Jayhawk: Intel´s official statement

I believe there´s much hype in the Web over Intel´s cancelled Tejas and Jayhawk processor cores. Some think it´s an echo of a crisis, some think that NetBurst turned out to be a dead end of processor evolution. I personally wouldn´t be up to such radical insinuations. It would be very strange for such a large company like Intel to include a processor series into roadmap and then just cancel it, because it suddenly turned out to be a dead end. Not logical.

A simpler and therefore more likely reason may be an answer to the market demands, in which Intel restructured its priorities, so they are better tuned for the future.

You, our readers, of course, have your own point of view that does or doesn´t coincide with mine. In either case, I believe it would be useful to be familiarized with Intel´s official statement regarding all this:

"We have re-prioritized our resources and no longer plan to deliver the processor on our roadmap known as Tejas. This product was disclosed at the Spring 2003 IDF as our next generation 90nm processor architecture and was to be available in 2004, and more recently was slated to be released in 2005. Instead, in assessing the needs of office and home users, as well as our technology capabilities, we´ve decided to accelerate our dual-core desktop client products in 2005 and have bolstered our design teams and product roadmap plans to make this happen. This move complements a number of other efforts such as Intel Hyper-Threading technology and other "T´s" that can deliver or enable more capabilities, performance, and flexibility to end users beyond processor speed. 2005 is shaping up to be one of the most exciting years for corporate and consumer computing users as Intel and the industry work to deliver dual-core products ranging from our high-end Itanium processor-based servers to our desktop and mobile product lines. We plan to have dual core products in our server and desktop product lines in the marketplace in 2005 and will ship our dual core mobile product for revenue in 2005. The acceleration of our plans is based upon our ability to take advantage of our industry leading process technology coupled with our industry leading manufacturing capabilities, to bring newer and better computing features to the market faster. This move complements a number of other efforts such as Intel Hyper-Threading technology and other technologies that can enable the delivery of more capabilities, performance, and flexibility to end users beyond processor speed."

So, to understand what we should expect considering the above changes, here´s the roadmap table:

  H2 2004 2005 2006
 Processor  Jonah (90nm, HT?) Merom (90nm/65nm?) Gilo (65nm)
Chipset Alviso-GM
(DDR2, PCI Express 16x, ICH6-M)
Wireless Calexico 2 (802.11a/b/g) Calexico 3 (PCI Express?)  

Canon PowerShot series: S60 replaces S50

Canon updated its PowerShot series with S60 model that replaced the previous S50. The main difference is the 3.6x (28-100mm in 35mm equiv.) lens vs. 3x (35-105mm in 35mm equiv.) in S50.

  • 5-megapixel 1/2" CCD
  • 3.6x optical lens
  • 5.8-20.7mm, f/2.8-8.0 (WIDE), f/5.3-8.0 (TELE)
  • 15-1/2000 s exposures
  • 44cm to inf. normal mode, 4-44cm (W) and 30-44cm (excl. W) macro
  • Optical viewfinder
  • 4.1x digital zoom
  • ISO 50/100/200/400
  • 640x480 (Small), 1600x1200 (Medium 2), 2048x1536 (Medium 1), 2592x1944 (Large) image resolutions; 640x480, 320x240, 160x120 movie resolutions
  • JPEG (EXIF 2.2), RAW, AVI formats
  • CompactFlash Card Type I/II media
  • USB, A/V-out (NTSC/PAL), mono sound
  • Canon Direct Photo Printer, PictBridge
  • NB-2LH/NB-2L batteries or ACK700 battery kit
  • 114x56.5x38.8mm size
  • 230g weight

Shipments are to be launched next month.

DDR PC-4800 EL DIMM — OCZ is speeding up

OCZ Technology continues its memory performance race, now with DDR PC4800 (DDR600) Enhanced Latency series for i875-based systems. Timings are CL 3-4-4-8 (CAS-TRCD-TRP-TRAS) at 2.85V voltage (up to 3V overclocking is covered by warranty).

The new kits are marked OCZ600512ELDC-K (2 x 256MB) and OCZ6001024ELDC-K (2 x 512MB) and are tested on ASUS P4C800 Deluxe and P4C800-E Deluxe boards.
