As for its performance, the new GeForce GTX 690 promises speed 2X faster than the predecessor GTX 680.
The Raspberry Pi’s innovative design is already impressive on its own. Never have we seen a computer like it. But based on the latest from Raspberry Pi executive director Eben Upton, there are more impressive things to the handy computer aside from its design.
In his interview with Digital Foundry, Upton claims that this $25-$30 PC is capable of unleashing twice the performance of the iPhone 4S! And not only that, he also asserts that the Raspberry Pi’s GPU called BCM2835 is more powerful than even the Tegra 2 chip!
Micron in partnership with Intel has taken mobile storage to a whole new level with the development of the world’s first 128GB NAND flash chip! This new chip enables 1TB of storage data in a package just the size of a fingertip.
It is composed of a grouping of 8 dies and made through a 20nm process. Aside from being capable of massive storage, the new 128 NAN chip is capable of super fast speeds of 333 megatransfers per second.
Well, it won’t be long now before dual-core processors become outdated! Today, Nvidia officially announced the new quad-core chipset!

It will be a remarkable tablet to own since it will be able to deliver up to 12 hours of battery life. The Tegra 3 will make that possible.
Nvidia’s director of product marketing Matt Wuebbling revealed all the important details of the Tegra 3 chip. One of the improvements brought by the chip includes longer battery life, web browsing and gaming. Wuebbling revealed that “Tegra 3 is five times the performance of Tegra 2.”

Need a portable storage? Seagate’s new 500GB GoFlex Satellite Mobile Wireless Storage Hard Drive is the perfect choice for you! This is especially true if you are a techie who is always on the go. You see the GoFlex Satellite Wireless Storage is Wi-Fi enabled and has a rechargeable battery! Being Wi-Fi enabled means that you can access your stored content wirelessly to your laptop, tablet or phone. Three devices can access the drive and stream data at the same time!
A lot of computer owners usually leave their external hard drive at home when they go out because it is too cumbersome to lug around. They just transfer the data they collect to the drive when they come home. Hoping to make things more convenient when it comes to saving data, Seagate has created the new GoFlex Slim Performance Drive!
The Seagate GoFlex Slim Performance Drive is quite slim measuring just 124 x 78 x 9mm. This is by far, the slimmest external drive I’ve ever seen. It’s width is pretty much like that of a pencil so it can be carried around without any trouble. Have you seen one that’s slimmer than this?
Techies who think their computer storage is no longer enough for their needs can upgrade to the Seagate 3TB Barracuda XT hard disk drive! I think 3TB is more than enough for storing all kinds of files: music, movies, games, documents, and a lot more! This new HDD was released on March 1, so if any of you wants to avail of it ASAP you can do so.
Aside from the massive storage it offers, this new Seagate 3TB HDD surmounts the limitation that HDDs above 2.1TB are not compatible with most PC systems. Seagate is able to do that through Discwizard. This software allows the user to configure his PC’s operating system for it to be well-matched with the 3TB HDD.
Success is Nvidia’s once again as the company unveiled its latest “Kal-El” quad-core processor. This is a very significant achievement for Nvidia because “Kal-El” will be the first quad-core processor for mobile and handheld devices!

Nvidia is quite positive about it; according to Phil Carmack, senior vice president of the mobile unit, the “quad core raises the bar, delivers a lot more performance, and fits into all mobile platforms.”
Are you among the first to own a desktop or laptop that has Intel’s new Sandy Bridge line of processors? If you are, don’t boast just yet! You see, Intel revealed that the new chip is flawed. It’s a design error that Intel discovered a bit late. To be more specific, the flaw is a single transistor that has the tendency to leak current than what is prescribed. About 100, 000 of these chips were shipped to computer makers worldwide.
