Samsung Unveils Fast Graphics Memory Chip

The new chip is expected to find a market among PC makers and manufacturers of computer games machines because of its high speed, which means more realistic three-dimensional images can be created and handled, Samsung said in a statement.

The device, which is designed using 0.17-micron design rules, can process 8GB of data per second, which is equivalent to 60 frames per second of video at a resolution three times better than that of standard television.

Samsung said sales of the chip next year alone are expected to reach $US700 million thanks to the anticipated demand, and the company says it expects to keep a 40 per cent share of the world graphics memory market.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
