Intel improve PC Stick with Core processor M

As it expected based on Intel Announces Core-M processor from its micro PC, Compute Stick, during his presentation at the IFA version; as part of a series of unexpected announcements the company made at the fair.

As expected, Intel introduced Skylake, the sixth generation of their Core processors. Kirk Skaugen, Intel senior vice president, called refierió is the same as the “best chip of all.
Skylake can reduce their demand for power only 90 watts to 4.5 watts, the energy consumed by the core M, now called Core m. Making it ideal for teams two-in-one, and even micro-PC as Intel Compute Stick, which equipped an older version of Atom processor at the time of submission. However, Intel did not announce a price or sale date for its new version of the Compute Stick.
The new processor will come with integrated graphics in its own core, which Intel had confirmed it would be better for video decoding of low consumption. What is surprising, it is that it be buno; Skaugen showed the chip 15 4K video decoding engine using the H.265 decoficación own processor and compared with a titan equipped with Nvidia doing the same, the latter suffered machine.
“We are not just introducing a lot of muscle to give performance, we are doing it the right way,” Slaugein said.

Intel also showcased its depth cameras RealSense, the hardware will work with Hello functionality of Windows 10. To date, these cameras have been assembled on the PC, but Skaugen said that a version of your camera RealSense R200 was being integrated tablets. Intel will launch applications that will allow users to “measure” of objects, and capture photos with depth even have to experience augmented reality games, in the near future.

Google presents the Chromecast devices for multimedia content

During the presentation you have insisted that “smartphones” have now become the “center of life” and therefore the objective of this launch goes through “meet the specific needs of users and the digital home.”

Thus, “we break barriers to the digital world is connected and mobile can play the role of critical equipment”, he explained.

Both devices work with systems iOS (iPhone, iPad, Mac), but also with Android phones and tablets, and Windows Chromebooks.

added that the microprocessor “has not changed” so that the playback speed will remain “snapshot” and, as regards the audio, he said that supports surround sound.

Chromecast for video turns the phone “in a remote ‘when content-aware applications from Google Cast and quality content on television is HD is sent.

As for the audio Chromecast admits the main speakers and AUX inputs, RCA and optical, so after connecting to the home network, “it can start playing content without using battery power.”

Apart from Google ensure that installation can be made in “three minutes” so that “anyone who knows the operation of a mobile device is able to use these devices.”

DiskStation Synology DS2411+

A new 12-bay NAS server targeted at SMEs, the DiskStation DS2411 +, has just joined the Synology product catalog. This model, under RAID 5 configuration has a write speed of 167 MB / s reading of 202 MB / s, includes 2 LAN and supports failover and link aggregation. On the other hand, it is equipped with a dual core processor 1.8 GHz, and operates at 105 W, but when it hibernates, the underclocking CPU and HDD suspension reduce energy consumption up to 39 W.

Finally, iSCSI support and ability to increase its RAM 1-3 GB for a high level of efficiency in data exchange in changing environments, it also easily integrates with leading virtualization solutions market, including VMware vSphere, Citrix XenServer and Microsoft HyperV.
