Banana Pi has a new single board computer – BPI-P2 Pro. The 65 x 52.5mm device is equipped with 2GB LPDDR2 RAM and 8GB eMMC flash memory.
There is also a microSD card slot, Wi-Fi 5 adapters, Bluetooth 4.2 and 10/100 Mbps Ethernet, and a USB port. The hardware platform is based on the SoC Rockchip RK3308, with a 1.3 GHz quad-core ARM Cortex-A35 CPU.
The BPI-P2 Pro does not have a video output (at least in the standard configuration), so it cannot be connected to an external display. Therefore, the device is more suitable for IoT tasks, and this is where Power over Ethernet (PoE) support comes in handy.
The cost and start date of sales of the BPI-P2 Pro have not yet been announced.
Cleaners in London discovered two copies of the world’s first mass-produced personal computer, Q1, under the rubble of boxes.
London-based waste collection company Just Clear discovered two computers under boxes during another house cleaning. It turned out that these were the very first production PCs.
The company’s employees did not know what they had found, and could not even find the information on the Internet. But the head of Just Clear turned to specialists, who determined that the cleaners had discovered two copies of the Q1 computer from the Q1 Corporation. They were released in 1972, and only a few copies were delivered to the UK. This PC is based on an Intel 8008 processor and also has 16 KB of memory.
The two PCs are currently on display at a technology exhibition at Kingston University in Surrey. They will later be sold at auction.
L-shaped computer power supply from a renowned manufacturer. Lian Li presented a line of unusual Edge power supplies
Lian Li has introduced a series of Edge computer power supplies that stand out for their extremely unusual shape.
As you can see, these blocks have a protrusion on which all the main power connectors are located. This L-shape makes it easier to access the connectors in a number of cases. Lian Li herself says that she created such blocks specifically for two-chamber cases. However, the manufacturer adds that its new product will be compatible with most other cases on the market.
In addition to the usual power connectors, the unit has a USB hub for expanded access to internal USB ports on the system board.
The first-born of the line will be the flagship unit with a power of 1300 W with an 80 Plus Platimun certificate, but then more affordable ones with an 80 Plus Gold certificate and a power of 850 and 1000 W will appear.
