Chinese electronics manufacturer XCY has announced the launch of sales of a full-fledged mini-PC N4100, the size of which allows it to fit in the palm of the hand. Its performance is enough for web surfing, email verification, office work, and the use of streaming music and video services.
In the past decade, engineer Gaurav Hanna of the Faculty of Physics of Dartmouth University of Massachusetts (USA) built his own version of the supercomputer, using 200 PlayStation 3 consoles. The military learned about its development, and the U.S. Air Force ordered a similar, only much more
The Intel NUC line has always attracted user attention. It is a powerful minicomputer measuring only 238 x 216 x 96 mm, designed for enthusiasts who prefer compact. Compared to previous models, the slightly larger size of the Intel NUC 9 may seem like a step backward. However, it is still
One of the world leaders in the production of elite PC enclosures, Taiwan company Lian Li introduced updated versions of its famous "computer tables" DK-4 and DK-5 with a focus on classic design. The F DK-5 houses two systems with E-ATX motherboards, while the smaller DK-04F model holds only one.
Now Apple sells wheels and legs for the famous Mac Pro 2019 in the form of separate sets. But like the Mac Pro itself, both sets are quite (if not fantastic) expensive. If your Mac Pro stands on standard legs, and you want to boost its mobility, the $699 Mac Pro Wheels Kit will provide you with
Researchers at Ben Gurion University in Israel are known for their experience and non-core talent to invent and successfully apply exotic ways to hack digital systems and gadgets. Their favorite niche is mining data from PCs that are not physically connected to any of the networks. They recently
As early as the 2000s, the American Congress decided to create the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA), which would deal with U.S. nuclear weapons. And recently, the NNSA decided to build a special supercomputer "El Capitan," which will be entrusted with the management of American
A year ago, Acer showed a "mind-blowing" Thronos chair for gamers, more like a futuristic throne with the sets of a professional robot servant. Since then it has become clear that consumers need something simpler, so the new version of the chair was a quarter cheaper than the previous one &# 8212;
Registration of customers wishing to be compensated for the purchase of AMD Bulldozer and Piledriver processors has begun. This is an amount of $300 or less (it depends on the number of applications submitted). But this deal has two terms. When AMD began selling the FX Bulldozer chip, it called
The largest Chinese online store sells mini-PCs n96 Mach based on Android, which can be purchased for only $21, including free delivery from China to most countries of the world. Much less, than even the cheapest Raspberry Pi device, and unlike it, is completely adjusted personal computer which
This week, as part of Supercomputing 2019, Cerebras Systems introduced the largest and most powerful (in terms of computing capabilities) chip in the world, the Cerebras Wafer Scale Engine, which has already found its place in a supercomputer with artificial intelligence CS-1. The chip covers
The iFixit portal team, which specializes in the repair of complex electronics, carried out the traditional demonstration dismantling of the new Mac Pro personal computer model. The first thing denied popular hearing, to say, because of the specific design of the external grid of the case it is
The user of the Reddit portal under the name thegarbz boasted about his new computer - a unique PC, to which he gave the name "Nuclear Football." This is an obvious reference to the president 's "nuclear suitcase," as the computer hardware is also packed in a suitcase. As thegarbz explained, he
Developers of the virtual Google Gboard keyboard for Android can be proud of the work – only two years were required to them on that their child was "mastered" by 500 languages (in their December, 2016 was 100, and in March 2017 – 300). Google Gboard allows the different people to write texts in
The producer of computers the Lian Li company (Taiwan) presented on CES-2019 a novelty — DK-04 computer. Its main feature – it is executed in the form of a vertical desk. Following the signature concept, DK-04 developers placed all its electronic stuffing in a table-top. The case is
The IonQ company reported about creation of almost ideal architecture of the quantum computer. It is based on use of ions and shows so high precision and reliability that physics questions fade into the background now. Developers need to focus on improvement ON and preparation for creation of
