RightMark Team Announces RMClock v.2.20

The RightMark Team announced the release of CPU Clock Utility (RMClock) v.2.20. RMClock is a small GUI application designed for real-time CPU frequency, throttling and load level monitoring and on-the-fly adjustment of the CPU performance level on supported CPU models via processor's power management model-specific registers (MSRs). In automatic management mode it continuously monitors the CPU usage level and dynamically adjusts the CPU frequency, throttle and/or voltage level as needed, realizing the "Performance on Demand" concept.


  • Added support for localized application resources.
  • Added RMClock Updates and RMClock Professional Features modules (valid licenses required).
  • Added independent CPU info display for each physical/logical CPU present in the system.
  • Added detection of several AMD K8 NPT (revision F) CPU cores.
  • Added CPU temperature graph display to the Monitoring page.
  • Added advanced chipset settings support for ICH8 family southbridges.
  • Switched to using CPU hardware coordination facilities (ACNT) for CPU load and throttling determination on Intel Core/Core 2 family CPUs.
  • Added options to enable/disable vendor-supplied CPU core temperature offset and specify user-definable CPU core temperature offset (as registry tweaks).
  • Fixed saving of advanced platform settings on Intel Core 2 CPU-based platforms.
  • Fixed log file creation in the application directory when using auto-start feature.
  • Added support for Quad-Core Intel Core 2 Extreme CPUs.
  • Fixed recognition of several AMD K8 revision E CPU cores.
  • Fixed battery life time estimation on some platforms.
  • Added support for mobile Intel Core 2 Duo (Merom core).
  • Added CPU-dependent offset to Intel CPU core temperature indications.
  • Added proper detection of AMD Athlon 64 FX dual-core processors.
  • Added automatic detection of 4x FID availability on AMD K8 family processors.
  • Changed design of Battery Info page.
  • Added validation of individual profiles P-states settings when Master P-States Table is altered.
  • Added battery charge rate averaging period (as a registry tweak).
  • Removed "No Management" from -prevprofile and -nextprofile profile switching commands.
  • Added time stamp to the logging information.
  • Fixed delayed applying of command-line parameters.
  • Fixed CPU load icon color setting (registry tweak).

The new version is available here.

Sharp Releases 5-megapixel CCD Camera For Mobile Phones

Sharp has released the "LZ0P3770" 5-megapixel CCD camera module for mobile phones. The module features a 3x optical linear zoom, which the company claims as is the first of that sort among camera modules featuring an inner zoom for mobile phones. Sharp said the module also realizes auto focus, smear-reduction mechanical shutter and other functionalities comparable to those of real cameras, along with the optical zoom.

TwinMOS Announces DDR2-667 Very-Low-Profile Memory

TwinMOS Technologies announced high-capacity VLP (very low profile) DIMMs for blade servers.

These new VLP-DIMMs are offered in 2GB capacities and use new-generation DDR2 dies organized as 128Mx4x36 on a micro PCB measuring 133.35 x 18.3 mm. Since the VLP module is only 60% as tall as a typical server DIMM, it helps to enhance memory expandability and cooling inside the server. This VLP-DIMMs is suitable for use in vertically deployed memory slots, such as servers and workstations using the Intel E7520/E7525 Chipset, Intel E7320 Chipset and the new generation AMD CPUs.
