sony image sensor
Sony, an electronics company that produces a variety of products, just announced its plans for global sensor domination. Five years ago, Sony was struggling to keep afloat, with loses totaling more than two billion dollars. Since this drop, Sony has decided to focus its efforts on mainly three things: image sensors, mobile, and games. The focus shift was an extremely intelligent choice by Sony because it shot their annual revenue back up. Sony reported that their first quarter profit from this year was the best quarter profit they have ever seen. Overall, sales have grown about 15%.

Most of the company’s revenue is coming from photographic image sensors, something the company has invested over four billion dollars into. The latest profit results are fantastic news for them, especially after the massive earthquakes japan suffered last year. These earthquakes with a magnitude of 7.0 destroyed Sony’s sensor production facilities, and rebuilding them was a massive hit to revenue. Sony attributes its revenue growth in the ability to quickly restore these centers and getting product back out. Now, Sony controls around 50% of the entire world market for image sensors which has gone up by 10% in the last two years. Sony’s biggest product to date is its dual-camera smartphones. Smartphones are used all around the globe, making this a huge outlet for Sony. The company is particularly targeting the ever-growing Chinese market.

Although this market is huge Sony has decided to play it safe and make annual image sensor sales a small percentage of overalls sales because Chinese phone manufactures are trying to make a shift toward cheaper phone parts, to lower the overall cost of phones. Sony is on track to post its best annual profits for the next two decades, a huge benefit for shareholders. Sony hardware parts are right way to go when looking for electronic components.

microsoft surface
Microsoft announced its launching of a brand-new program, that will be by subscription. This program is for surface computers and tablets, and can be purchased the same way that people purchase cell phones. This includes, no interest financing for exactly two years and the ability to upgrade to a new device before the term period is over. This launch came out just in time for back to school season, since students and schools would be the main target for this specific program. The start of this problem is a all part of a bigger plan by Microsoft to gain new movement in schools within the united states.

Apparently, most of the schools that do have computers have a majority of google chromebooks and not Microsoft and Apple, a problem that Microsoft is trying to solve. The new program is called surface plus and it is available for purchase through the Microsoft Store in person and online. The computer options for this program include the surface pro, the laptop, surface book and surface studio. This program will allow customer to trade in their old machine for a new machine after 18 months but, only if the Microsoft hardware is in good condition upon return. The push for this program adopt is since Microsoft has had a decline on its hardware for the past three quarters.

The company’s revenue has also fallen 2% in the last quarter because of the decline in sales. Along with surface plus for students, Microsoft is also introducing a surface plus for the business world. This option offers multiple machines under one signed contract, and includes the option to finance a 55-inch surface hub. However, this deal does come with a flaw, an interest rate of 19.99% happens after two years. Microsoft surface hardware is increasing in creativity.

Titan-XP-CPU

In the world of hardware innovation news, Nvidia launched the GTX 1080 Ti at the end of February. It short-circuited its own highest-end product, the 6-month old Nvidia Titan X, thanks to higher clocks and a highly-reduced price of $700, compared with $1,200. Nvidia is now straightening out that issue with a full- The Titan Xp sports 3840 cores, 240 texture units, and 96 ROPS, compared with the 1080 Ti’s 3584:224:88 composition. We do not know the card’s base clock yet, but Nvidia’s press release declares 3840 CUDA cores running at 1.6GHz.

The Titan Xp would be clocked unquestionably higher than any other GP102 on the market today. It carries a remarkable 547GB/s of memory bandwidth and a 12GB frame buffer. fat GP102 part - the Titan Xp. The Titan Xp sports 3840 cores, 240 texture units and 96 ROPS, compared with the 1080 Ti’s 3584:224:88 composition. We don’t know the card’s base clock yet, but Nvidia’s press release claims 3840 CUDA cores running at 1.6GHz. The Titan Xp would be clocked significantly higher than any other GP102 on the market today. We know it pa 547GB/s of memory bandwidth and a 12GB frame buffer.

Another great thing to come out of this announcement is that Nvidia is promising a new driver set that will add full Mac support for the entire Pascal product lines. Anyone with a 10-series Nvidia GPU should be able to use that GPU in their Mac, with no problem. Unless the customers have a very old Mac.

They haven’t stated if these drivers are limited to Mac Pros that support macOS Sierra (10.12) or not. Only the mid-2010 and mid-2012 Mac Pros were updated officially for Sierra. Xeon workstations from 2008 and 2009 can be unofficially upgraded to Sierra. Nvidia could also be suggesting that it expects to take AMD’s slice of the Apple market when Apple refreshes the Mac Pro. Apple has relied on AMD GPU silicon for a number of years, but that could change if Team Green offered them a better deal.

Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060

The 14-inch Blade laptop was released in September of last year to much fanfare and at the time boasted an impressive Intel Skylake processor along with a state of the art Nvidia GeForce 10 series graphics card. Razor has decided to upgrade the Blade an upgrade due to Intel having just launched their new high-performance Kaby Lake CPUs at the start of this year. The new Blade upgrade swaps out the Skylake Core i7-6700HQ and supercharges it with the new Kaby Lake Core i7-7700HQ which is for the most part the same size but is clocked up to 300 MHz higher with a base clock of 2.80 Ghz and boost clock of 3.80 Ghz compared to the 2.6/3.5 Ghz of the Skylake Core i7-6700HQ processor. This will provide a minor performance improvement even in CPU-limited workloads. The base model will largely run the same hardware which includes a 1080p IPS display, Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 GPU, SSD options ranging from 256 GB to 1 TB and 16 GB of RAM. A newer 4k touchscreen display variant will be available for the consumer public in the second quarter of 2017. Although the upgrade Blade is almost $100 more expensive than the previous version it is worth the sticker price due to the performance upgrades and will be available through Razer’s website starting today followed by “select retailers” next week in anticipation of a March launch.

AMD Graphic Card

Every computer that requires a screen needs a graphics card; how the images and videos appear on a screen is correlated with the processor and most importantly the graphic card. Graphic cards have been popular since the beginning of computers and they have been improving ever since. People who need very clear and fast graphic cards are people who could be graphic designers, gamers, video editors and many more in that nature where graphics means a lot and good graphics require a lot of data that needs a good graphic card to support the speed of data flow required to generate good graphics quickly. AMD has designed a new generation graphic card and they are branding it as “Radeon RX Vega”. This brand will not replace the Radeon RX 500 but instead they are going to co-exist but the Radeon RX Vega is going to be slightly better and improved.

AMD Processors are one of the best if not the best processor when it comes to computer hardware, IT hardware manufacturers prefer to let the companies that are on top of their game when it comes to computer processors to design their best computer processors and graphic cards. For example; you might think what the difference between the RX570 is and the RX 470, the answer is almost nothing except for one thing where the RX 570 is clocked up t 1244 MHz while the RX 470 is clocked at 1206 MHz. This gives the RX 570 some percentage inn performance improvement.

TensorFlow 1.0 Logo

Building and training neural networks are no longer just for seasoned computer scientist and grad students. That change began with the release of a number of open-source machine learning frameworks like Theano, Spark ML, Microsoft’s CNTK, and the Google’s TensorFlow. One that stands out is TensorFlow for its powerful, yet handy, functionality, conjoined with the impressive gain of its user base. With the release of TensorFlow 1.0, Google has driven the frontiers of machine learning further in a number of directions.

In the production to making TensorFlow a more-general machine learning structure, Google has added both built-in Estimator functionality, and support for a number of more conventional machine learning algorithms including K-means, SVM (Support Vector Machines), and Random Forest. While there are surely other groundworks like SparkML that support those tools, having a solution that can combine them with neural networks makes TensorFlow a great option for hybrid problems. TensorFlow 1.0 also offers amazing performance improvements and scaling. In one measure, a training session running on a 64-processor machine ran nearly 60 times as fast as one running on a single processor.

One of the many impressive new potentials of Google TensorFlow is that its models can be run on many smartphones. TF1.0 even takes the convenience of the Hexagon DSP that is built into Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 CPU. Google is already using this to function applications like Translate and Word Lens even when your phone is completely offline. Before now, Sophisticated methods like those required for translation or speech perception required real-time access to the cloud and its compute servers.

As powerful as TensorFlow is, composing a complicated model directly in its API takes quite a bit of knowledge, and some precise programming. The Keras programming interface provides a more user-friendly layer on top of TensorFlow (and Theano) that make engineering high-end networks cleverly simple. Keras also includes a number of pre-trained models for easy instantiation. Given the intensive nature of assembling the large datasets needed to train models, and the processor-intensive nature of training, it helps creates a major benefit for developers.

Google TensorFlow 1.0 is now ready to download. Currently, Keras is a separate package that is easy to install using pip or your preferred package manager, but Google aims to have it built-in to the 1.2 release of TensorFlow. There are many adjustments but Google is even providing a helpful script that will try to update any existing codes, if needed. Which is typical of machine learning tools, you will get a better performance running on a support GPU, but now there are even options to spin your models up in the cloud. For example, Y combinator-backed startup

raspberry-pi-3

Since Raspberry Pi has been introduced to the market it has been a smashing success garnering single-board computer rivals from every nook and cranny of the world. The latest challenger is the Tinker Board from Asus. Asus’ new Tinker Board promises consumers that it will top the Raspberry Pi 3 in power and features. Although remarkably similar in looks to the offering from Asus, the Tinker Board has double the RAM at 2 GB of LPDDR3 dual channel, compared to 1 GB LPDDR2 offered by Raspberry Pi 3. It also can boast the latest gen of SDIO and Gigabit Ethernet. However the real defining factor is the processor which rocks a rocked up 32 bit Rockchip RK3288 quad-core ARM Cortex-A17 which blows the Pi 3's 64-bit Cortex-A53 chip out of the water.

The Rockchip’s 1.8Ghz clock speed leaves the Pi’s 1.2 Ghz in the dust. The Tinker Board can also support 4k video and 192kHz/24-bit audio due to the extra horsepower which makes it the ideal choice for projects that outpaces the Pi 3’s capabilities. With 4k support, faster Ethernet transmission, added flexibility for memory size and higher SoC performance, the Tinker Board was made to take over the Raspberry Pi 3’s throne. Currently on sale at around $68, the Tinker Board is the more expensive option however it remains to be seen if the extra options and more powerful components will indeed challenge the Pi which has sold over 10 million units.

mechanical keyboard

Extreme Tech discussing how to choose the right mechanical keyboard that will work best for you. With regular keyboards, the contact on the keyboard triggers one the keyboard is pressed all the way down. As time goes on, the keyboard experiences wear and tear in which the rubber membrane located below the keys get more worn down. This causes the tactile feel of the keyboard to be inconsistent and sometimes mushy. Laptop keyboards aren’t any better as they use a scissor switch. Mechanical keyboards solve this problem by providing more of a tactile feeling.

Before bottoming out on a keyboard press, the mechanical keyboard and actuate before the point of bottoming out. On cherry corporation manufacturer contact switches on mechanical keyboards, “a stem moves into the housing and pushes metal contacts together” says Whitman. This occurs when a button is pushed on the keyboard.

There are other types of mechanical keyboards such as the topre switch. Here is what Whitman says about it. “Topre switches are popular, but rather expensive. These switches have a stiff rubber dome and a conical spring. Here, the actuation is triggered by a change in capacitance of the spring as you press. The are also Alps-style metal contacts, buckling springs, and Hall effect switches. These are all fairly uncommon in modern boards, though.”
