Razer enters the high-performance PC gaming market

Published

on

Gamer-focused Razer has announced four new additions: Razer Kunai Case Fans, Razer Hanbo Liquid Coolers, Razer Katana Power Supplies, and Razer PWM Fan Controller. According to the manufacturer, they “herald Razer’s entry into the high-performance PC gaming market.” The listed components are said to be “designed to the highest reliability standards.” They are all adorned with addressable lighting and are supported by Razer Synapse software.

Razer Kunai fans feature hydraulic bearings. The fans are optimized for maximum airflow and minimum noise. The range includes models of standard size 120 and 140 mm.

The Razer Hanbo Liquid Cooling Systems are the fruit of a technology partnership between Razer and Asetek. They are available with 240 and 360 mm radiators. The manufacturer attributes silent operation of the pump and increased reliability to the advantages of these cooling systems. By the way, Razer promised that cooperation with Asetek in the field of LSS will continue.

The Razer Katana ATX PSUs are 90 Plus Platinum certified for high efficiency. Until the load exceeds a certain threshold, the fan in the power supply does not turn on, which ensures almost silent operation of the power supply. In the description of the power supply unit, the presence of fully modular cable systems and the use of high-quality components are noted. The PSUs are available in 750 to 1200 W power options, with the 1600 W model with 90 Plus Titanium certification as the flagship of the line.

Rounding out the list of new products is a fan controller that supports speed control using pulse-width modulation. It is designed to support up to eight Razer Kunai fans. Using Razer Synapse software, you can customize the fans connected to your controller to suit your specific gaming PC configuration.

The Razer Kunai fans and the Razer PWM PC Fan Controller begin shipping in the US this month. The controller costs $ 50, fans start from $ 45. The Razer Hanbo LSS should go on sale in November this year, and the Razer Katana PSU early next. Prices have not yet been announced. In other countries, new items will begin to be delivered before the end of the year.

Apple, Samsung and Xiaomi smartphones cannot do that. There was a video with the disassembly process of the modular Fairphone 4 and strength tests

Published

The modular and most maintainable smartphone Fairphone 4 fell into the hands of blogger JerryRigEverything.

In this case, we are interested not only in his strength tests, although there is usually only one useful of them, but also in the video of the disassembly process.

As you can see, the smartphone is disassembled and assembled as easily as possible, and even the display is dismantled simply by unscrewing a few bolts. There is no need to talk about the simplicity of the battery replacement process. No other device in this segment offers this.

At the same time, modularity did not affect the strength in any way. Thanks to the metal frame, the smartphone practically does not bend, which is very good. The plastic of the back cover does not suffer from this effect either.

Recall that Fairphone 4 is based on SoC Snapdragon 750G and is equipped with an IPS screen, 48-megapixel main camera and a 3905 mAh battery.

Google has made life easier for Android TV owners. These users can now install applications on their TVs directly from their smartphones.

To install, just go to Google Play from your smartphone and select a TV from the drop-down list as the target for installing the software. Similarly, Google has implemented the installation of applications on smartwatches with Wear OS.

Computer in “credit card” format. Qualcomm develops Qompute Card concept despite Intel’s failure

Published

on

Qualcomm is reportedly developing a concept called the Qompute Card.

It involves placing all the basic elements of a PC on one small board. This will allow you to easily and quickly update the configuration of such a PC or use such cards by one user in different places on different PCs. Also, a similar solution can find application in household appliances.

The concept is not new at all. Back in 2017, a similar idea for the Intel Compute Card was presented, but the company abandoned it two years later, since it did not receive any distribution in the market.

Qualcomm as a whole makes a very similar decision, except that the heart of such cards will be SoCs based on the Arm architecture. The Qompute Card will also contain the motherboard, RAM and flash memory. That is, all the main elements of the finished device. At the same time, Qualcomm cards may well be significantly smaller than Intel Compute Card, if only because of the different power consumption of SoC Snapdragon and conventional Intel CPUs.

Qompute Card are aimed specifically at computers and laptops. At least the SoC Snapdragon 7c + Gen 3 presented the other day will also be offered as part of the cards. The source adds that Qualcomm is testing configurations for both Windows Arm and Chrome OS. How successful this version will turn out to be, time will tell. So far, all such modularity initiatives have not met with success.
