geeteam posted a topic in Technology NewsIntel has the tablet market covered in 2014, according to sources with Taiwan's tablet supply chain. The silicon slinger has plans to offer CPU platforms for low-end tablets all the way to top-shelf models. The company has already released its Bay Trail-T chips for Windows 8/8.1. By the end of this year, the company will have introduced its Bay Trail-T line for Android slates. Intel's Z3735D series is a Bay Trail CPU designed specifically for low-end Android tablets priced at $99 to $129, and for 7 to 8 inch models priced at $149 to $199. These chips will be available in the first quarter of next year. For those Android tablets with a screen size of 8 to 10 inches, and a retail price range of $199-$249, Intel will offer the Bay Trail and Cherry Trail platforms. The latter will also cover 10 inch Android slabs priced at $249 and higher. The Cherry Trail chip will launch next September and is based on the 14nm Airmont architecture. Cherry Trail will support both 32 and 64 bit Windows 8/8.1 and Android tablets.That will be followed up with the Willow Trail CPU in the fourth quarter. Based on the 14nm Goldmont architecture, this chip will also support Windows and Android slates. Finally, Intel has some lovin' for smartphones as well. In the first quarter, it will release Merrifield for smartphones while Moorefield is expected to launch in Q3. Both not only use the 22nm process, they both can also be used for Android tablets.

krkanna posted a topic in Software UpdatesCompact Tray Meter - CPU & RAM monitoring utility. Version: 1.1 Size: 787K Compatibility: Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7 (32/64bit) DescriptionIt is true that there is a lot of software that report CPU and RAM usage, but almost all of it display it on a desktop or in some other area of the screen that is generally obscured by other windows ... that makes it not so useful. This compact utility displays the real-time CPU and RAM usage right on the taskbar's notification area (next to the system clock) that is always visible: Special features: Real-time reporting of the CPU activity.Real-time reporting on the system RAM usage.Color coding of the readout can indicate the CPU/RAM load even without seeing the actual numbers.This program does not require installation, or administrative privileges to operate and can be run from any location on your hard drive.This program also obtains the following information about the CPU(s) (or, Central Processing Units) on your system:Brand name of the CPU.CPU architecture, i.e. 32-bit, 64-bit, etc.CPU clock reading.Number of physical and logical CPU cores.Number of NUMA nodes.Information about L1/L2/L3 caches.Additional technical information about CPU, reported directly by the die itself.This program also obtains the following information about the RAM (or system memory):Capacity of each RAM module in bytes.Form factor (DIMM, RIMM, etc.)Memory type (SDRAM, DDR, DDR-2, etc.)Type detail (synchronous, nonvolatile, etc.)RAM speed (566 ns, 800 ns, etc)Data width (64 bits, etc)Interleave information.Serial, manufacture's, SKU and part numbers on RAM modules.And more, where available.We also attempted to write this program with as small of an imprint on the system resources as possible to improve the accuracy of its reporting.SynopsisBesides retrieving the wealth of technical information about your system, that of course can be used to verify the authenticity of your hardware, a novice user can use this utility to monitor the "health" of their PC. The rule of thumb is pretty simple: If the CPU usage starts to peak regularly at over 50% this means that there's some activity going on in your system. This generally indicates some work being done on the background, and if you're not aware of anything going on that you requested, this may indicate some faulty background program, or even a virus. Getting rid of that will greatly speed up your computer and improve usability. The system RAM reading can also indicate a system that is either low on memory, if RAM usage peaks at 75% or more, or that some program needs to be closed to stabilize the system. The bottom line is this, use this free tool to check the workability of your computer. We use it all the time and want to share with you! ManualAvailable offline in the installation package.
