Trinity, the second generation AMD processors


AMD has rolled in the computer hardware that peroses data. Namely, the second generation AMD processors that give priority to low power consumption and integrated graphics are powered.

Trinity, is the second-generation processors from AMD. Processor A-Series APU (accelerated processing unit, a combination of CPU and graphics processor).

Like the Ivy Bridge, Trinity has up to four-core processor and comes with integrated graphics processing unit. Trinity graphics unit using Northern Islands architecture is also implemented on the graphics card Radeon HD 6000 series from AMD.

Thanks to the integrated graphics processors, AMD claims that the Trinity is able to provide the experience of playing a better game on the user.

Trinity can play 1080p HD video, and run the game at 30 frames per second rate. Rate of 30 frames per second is a minimum standard for the game to run smoothly.

The processor core architecture adopts Trinity Piledriver, which uses power saving technology called the resonant clock mesh technology. This technology allows Trinity to recycle some of the electrical energy used during operation.

The result, power consumption can be reduced to Trinity 17 watts, or only half the rate recorded its predecessor, Llano. Due to power saving, battery laptop using even this processor is claimed to last up to 12 hours.

Ivy Bridge, third generation processor from Intel


Computer hardware from Intel, which is a data processing computer hardware, better known by the computer processor, powerful graphics processors embedded in the Core-i third generation, which is popularly called Ivy Bridge.

Family of processors from Ivy Bridge, there are HD4000 and HD2500 graphics processors, which Intel has claimed speeds of up to two times higher than the previous generation. Intel also said that the Core's integrated graphics processor-i third generation was sufficient to play complex 3D games though.

Not just play the game. Intel integrated graphics acceleration also has the ability QuickSync, which can speed up certain tasks, such as video encoding.

Intel is not the only manufacturers that provide the processor with a powerful integrated graphics processors. Its rival, AMD, also has equipped CPU with integrated graphics Radeon homemade is touted to have higher speed than its competitors. Namely, the A-Series processors APU (accelerated processing unit, a combination of CPU and graphics processor) coded name of the Trinity is predicted to be opposite to Ivy Bridge series processors from Intel, AMD's main rival in the microprocessor industry.

Now do not have a dedicated graphics card to play a sophisticated game, because there are now integrated with the Intel card. On-board graphics cards are usually weaker than a separate graphics card.

ASUS SABERTOOTH Z77 Motherboard, using the latest Intel chipset

Computer hardware, new motherboard from ASUS. ASUS SABERTOOTH Z77 Motherboard, is the latest motherboard launched by leading motherboard manufacturer, ASUS. The motherboard is stable and resilient, is equipped with an Intel processor, 3rd Generation Ivy Bridge, and the Z77 chipset. Using military-grade design. SABERTOOTH Z77 is equipped with the latest Thermal Armor. New features, Fan Overtime.

Overtime Fan ASUS claims can lower the temperature of 7 degrees Celsius in just 10 minutes. New generation Thermal Armor boosts cooling with dual turbo fans, enhancing the original TUF thermal design and helping direct hot air away from components and the motherboard via smart shunt funneling. It covers the entire board with more powerful airflow, and uses special heat pipes to expedite thermal removal and make sure temperatures stay low. The dedicated I/O cover fan draws additional cold air in and expels even more heat for improved stability, plus new Thermal Armor comes with special convection holes in the PCB to facilitate underside airflow. It now sports a cool military-themed style, perfect for case modders.

Thermal Radar monitors temperatures in critical parts of the board, automatically adjusting fan speeds for better system stability. Fan Overtime keeps fans working in critical minutes post shutdown to extend component lifespan, dropping temperatures by 7゚C in just ten minutes after the computer turns off. New Fan Off consists of a switch that disables fans should temperatures drop below a manually or automatically set level for effective power consumption.

To fifteen of these technologies are:
1. Home-based internet cable, along with the development of broadband communications services.
2. Photo and vidio camera, due to the outbreak of the camera feature on your mobile phone (smartphone).
3. Wired telephone network, after the mobile phone network increases.
4. Computer with a long boot time, as more and more fast-access computer.
5. Windowless computer operating system, after Microsoft develop Windows 8 with box user interface features that can be drawn on the screen.
6. Hard drive storage, which will dikanti with solid-based storage.
7. Cinema.
8. Three-dimensional glasses, along with the proliferation of television with the screen quality (high definition) and the three-dimensional sound.
9. Pointing device / mouse, after the discovery of the screen with touch capabilities.
10. Remote control, because the development of control with hand movements and sounds more rapidly.
11. Telephone number, which will be replaced with a chat over the Internet with video capabilities, such as Skype, Google Talk, or Facebook.
12. Prime time on television, after a number of sites providing television shows via the internet (streaming).
13. Facsimile machine, which until now has started to be replaced by email.
14. Optical discs, which will be replaced cloud computing services.
15. Desktop computer, after a number of handheld electronic devices such as tablets and smart phones capable of equivalent desktop computer.

What is a computer?

The computer comes from the Latin, that is computare, meaning the count. Computers are tools used to process the information according to procedures that have been formulated.

According to Hamacher, computer is an electronic calculating machine quickly and be able to receive digital input, then process it in accordance with programs stored in memory, and produces output in the form of information.

According Blissmer, the computer is an electronic device that can perform several tasks, which receives input, processes the input according to the program, keep the commandments and the results of processing, providing output in the form of information.

Fuori argues that the computer is a data processor which can perform large calculations quickly, including arithmetic and logic operations, without intervention from humans.

Development of the USB (Universal Serial Bus)

The technology of USB (Universal Serial Bus) has become the standard for computer devices today. Almost every computer enhancement using a USB connection. From the small to large. Because of its high flexibility, so that USB became the standard connection in this moment of usage. We can connect many enhancements and other devices into a computer with USB.

USB was introduced in 1996, by Intel, Compaq, Digital, IBM, and Northern Telecom. Then the USB technology began to evolve in terms of data transfer speeds, so comes the second generation of USB. Better known as the USB version 2.0 (USB 2.0). Launched in April 2000 and the use of standard USB-IF (Implementers Forum) at the end of 2001. Several large companies are developing USB 2.0 is Hewlett-Packard, Intel, Lucent (now LSI Corporation), Microsoft, NEC, and Philips. Along with the increased use of external devices and the need for higher speeds. Then to the third generation USB launched in 2007. USB to third generation is known as USB version 3.0 (USB 3.0).

In terms of speed of data transfer, development of data transfer speed of USB version of the first to the third version, the difference is enormous. USB 1.0 data transfer speeds up to 12 Mbit / s. Speed ​​USB 2.0 data transfer to achieve 480 Mbit / s. While the data transfer rate for USB 3.0 up to 5 Gbit / s.

USB 3.0 uses the technology of data transfer both directions (full duplex), so it can read and write data simultaneously (simultaneously). USB 2.0 and USB 1.0 does not support bi-directional technology.

USB 3.0 connector with USB 2.0 (standard), but the cable in it will be more, there are four additional cable channels than USB 2.0 (total of nine cable channels).

USB 3.0 compatible with USB 2.0, USB 2.0 device so that it will be used in USB 3.0 port and it will run at USB 2.0 standard. But not vice versa, USB 3.0 devices can not be installed on a USB 2.0 port.

Until now, the USB version 3.0 is the most advanced technology.
