The attraction of the Remade lies in its future potential. Although the phone isn’t functional, Nokia hopes that similar concepts could be implemented in future devices.The clamshell phone’s casing is made entirely from recycled aluminum cans, and its chassis is made from the plastic of recycled drink bottles. The rubber keys come from old car tires. The screen and circuit board also minimize environmental impact by using manufacturing techniques such as printed electronics. The display graphics are also specially selected to save energy.While the “Remade” concept itself isn’t planned for production, all the components are plausible and could be applied to a real phone. Nokia hopes that the knowledge gathered while designing and building the phone will play a role in future Nokia handsets.On the other hand, the N96 is the hot phone of today. The successor to the N95, the N96 contains 16GB of on-board memory, which is enough to hold about 40 hours of video or 12,000 songs. If that´s not enough space, the phone also has a slot for an 8GB microSD memory card. The device also has GPS, a 5-megapixel camera, a DVB-H television tuner for watching live TV, and even a little kick-stand so the phone can be propped up when viewing the 2.8-inch display. The N96 will be available in September for around US$800. via: PhoneMag and Gizmodo Nokia´s “Remade” recycled phone (left) and N96 “multi-media computer” phone (right). Among its many new devices at this week’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, the Finnish company Nokia is demonstrating two cell phones that are intriguing in very different ways. The “Remade” is built almost entirely from recycled materials, while the N96 is Nokia’s high-end “multimedia computer” phone.last_img read more

64GB SSD memory in a quarter sized chip

first_img It is an SSD card, named the OC177 DOC, and while that name may still need some tweaking, the product is certainly garnering media attention. The card is, as you have guesses by now, small. Its is roughly the size of a US quarter. For those of you without one in your pocket or purse, the dimensions come out to be roughly 22 x 22 x 1.8mm. This SSD can fit either 32GM or 64GB of flash memory, which is fairly impressive. To put that in perspective for you the 64GB SSD could hold roughly 14000 songs from your iTunes library. It is the same amount of memory as you get on higher capacity tablet PC’s.I know what you’re thinking. Storage is great, but what about speed? Data that is slow to be accessed can create a frustrating user experience no doubt. The OC177 DOC isn’t the fastest chip on the block, but it does clock in with a speed that is respectable. According to the information being released by the company it has a read speed of roughly 70MB/s and a write speed of 40MB/s.No word yet on the costs, but you can expect to see the OC177 DOC showing up in devices by the end of the third quarter of 2011. (PhysOrg.com) — The world of technology is a lot like Janus. For those of you who slept through the mythology portion of your high school world lit, Janus has two faces, looking in opposite directions, a lot like the recent innovations we have seen. With most tech innovations, things are either getting really big or getting really small. Today, we are going to look at a new bit of technology that falls to the small side of the equation. Foremay, a maker of portable memory tools, has begun to show off its latest micro memory product. © 2010 PhysOrg.com Citation: 64GB SSD memory in a quarter sized chip (2011, March 30) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2011-03-64gb-ssd-memory-quarter-sized.html Explore furthercenter_img Toshiba Launches 256GB Solid State Drives with MLC More information: PDF release: www.foremay.net/pr/disk-on-chi … lest-ssd-foremay.pdf This document is subject to copyright.

Colorful creates passively cooled Nvidia graphics card

first_img Citation: Colorful creates passively cooled Nvidia graphics card (2012, June 29) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2012-06-passively-cooled-nvidia-graphics-card.html PNY Technologies Verto GeForce 6200 AGP 8X Available Now More information: www.expreview.com/20045.html (in Chinese) The GTX680 is Nvidia’s powerful single-core graphics card. GeForce refers to a brand of graphics processing units (GPUs) designed by Nvidia. In March it was announced that the first chip based on the Kepler architecture was hitting the market, aboard a new graphics card called the GeForce GTX 680. The passively cooled GeForce GTX 680 model uses 20 heatpipes and two aluminum heatsinks. Colorful claims this is the first zero-noise GTX 680 solution.Colorful is considered one of Nvidia’s most important board partners in Asia. Established in 1995, Colorful conducts research, designs, manufactures, and sells consumer graphics cards. Those familiar with Colorful regard it as a company that frequently comes up with surprises. One such description is that Colorful is “an unorthodox producer of Nvidia cards,” according to PC reviews site, HEXUS. A Singapore-based technology site refers to Colorful as making “some of the most outrageous and over-the-top graphics cards you will find.”Colorful‘s “cooled” solution has 20 heatpipes combined with 280 aluminum fins. In reviewing the announcement, a note of concern was struck over the fact that Colorful has not yet mentioned clock speeds. Geek.com wonders if they might have underclocked the GPU to help keep temperatures to a minimum. “If it hasn’t been underclocked, then it may be a card worth keeping an eye out for,” said the report. The techPowerup site said that the design guarantees reliable silent operation at reference clock speeds or mild overclocking.There has been no price or release date announced; Colorful is said to be still assessing the marketability of the design.When Colorful first showed off the iGame card at Computex 2012 in Taipei earlier this month, the product was described as “iGame GeForce GTX 680 Silent” and drew prompt attention as a card that relies completely on passive cooling, not a fan,.This is not the first time, however, that a manufacturer has achieved a passively cooled graphics card, and more competition is likely to emerge sooner than later, under different partnerships. Sapphire announced in early June that it had come up with its new passively cooled Radeon HD 7770 card. Like the Colorful entry, this does not use a fan but instead dissipates heat via a “heatspreader.” Sapphire partners with AMD. With a big enough heatsink, can a high-end graphics card be passively cooled? No fan? No noise? China-based manufacturer Colorful showed off its answer, introduced at Computex earlier this month. Colorful has what it says is the world’s first passive-cooled GeForce GTX 680 graphics card, the iGame GTX 680 “passive.” Instead of a cooling fan, two very large aluminum heatsinks carry the task of drawing heat away from the core. Colorful set out to eliminate noise completely by a passively cooled graphics card in its iGAME range that uses Nvidia‘s GeForce GTX 680 chipset. center_img Explore further © 2012 Phys.Org This document is subject to copyright.
