  1. Shortages of Intel's CPUs are expected to worsen in the second quarter compared to the first as demand for Chromebooks, which are mostly equipped with Intel's entry-level processors, enters its best period. Bean counters at Digitimes Research have been adding up some numbers and dividing them by their shoe size and have reached the conclusion that Intel CPUs will see their supply gap shrink by three percent The shortage will be greater for the Core i3. Previously it has been far Core i5 as the series hit hardest by shortages. It all went tits up for Intel in August with major brands such as HP, Dell and Lenovo all experiencing supply gaps of over five percent at their worst. It had been widely believed that the shortages would get better. But the supply gap in the fourth quarter of 2018 still stayed at the same level as that in the third as HP launched a second wave of CPU inventory buildup during the last quarter of the year, prompting other vendors to follow suit. The shortage was particularly hard on Taiwan-based vendors which saw their supply gaps expand from a single digit percentage previously to over 10 per cent in the fourth quarter. With all the impacts, the notebook market continued suffering a four to fiveper cent supply gap in the fourth quarter of 2018. The Core i5 series for mainstream models, and the Atom, Celeron and Pentium series for entry level ones saw the most serious shortages in the second half of 2018. Within the Core i5 family, those based on Kaby Lake R architecture featuring a quad-core design instead of the traditional dual-core one had the worst shortfall as they were key products in Intel's promotional campaign in 2018 and increased the consumption of the company's already limited wafer capacity. Apollo Lake- and Gemini Lake-based processors for the entry-level segment were second worst in terms of shortages as Intel had shifted most of its capacity to make high-end processors that offered better profit. Lenovo, which primarily focuses on mid-range and entry-level models, had a supply gap of hundreds of thousands CPUs in the second half of the year. White-box players in China have even been denied any supply of Intel's entry-level processors since September 2018. One of the main beneficiaries of Intel’s cock up has been AMD which has seen its share in worldwide notebook shipments have also been picking up gradually from only 9.8 per cent in the first quarter of 2018 to 15.8 per cent in the first quarter of 2019. As more Chromebooks are expected to come with AMD processors in the second quarter and many vendors will begin mass shipping AMD-based entry-level notebooks, AMD's share is expected to rise to 18 per cent in the second quarter of 2018. Some analysts are saying that AMD will not be able to capitalise on the mess in the long term. Intel's newly established 14nm capacity to begin contributing shipments, the second quarter is expected to be the peak for AMD's share in worldwide notebook shipments in 2019. Intel is expected to have new 14nm capacity join production in the second half of 2019. Intel's existing 14nm fabs are mainly located in the US and Ireland and the newly expanded capacity in Arizona, the US is expected to begin volume production in July or August, to boost Intel's overall 14nm capacity by 25 per cent and completely resolve the shortage problem.

  2. Apple is working on updates across its entire product line for the second half of 2018, according to a new investor's note shared this morning by reliable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, with refreshes expected for iPhone, iPad, Mac mini, MacBook Pro, iMac, and Apple Watch. Much of what Kuo has to share has been mentioned before, but he provides a nice overview of what we can expect to see this fall along with some interesting new tidbits on Apple's upcoming product lineup. iPhone - There are three iPhones in the works, two OLED models in 5.8 and 6.5-inch sizes and one lower-cost LED model that will be available in a 6.1-inch size. All three will feature Face ID and upgraded A12 processors. While the two OLED models will have dual-lens cameras, the lower-cost model will feature a single-lens camera. iPad Pro - Apple is working on two new 11 and 12.9-inch iPad Pro models that are equipped with a full-screen design similar to the iPhone X and no Home button, with Apple to replace Touch ID with Face ID. Mac mini - Kuo didn't have a lot of information to share on the Mac mini, but he says a processor upgrade is expected. The Mac mini has not been updated for more than 1,300 days, aka over 3 and a half years. It's not clear if additional upgrades will be included, such as a redesigned chassis, but at least some kind of refresh is on the horizon. MacBook Pro - Processor upgrades expected. MacBook - Processor upgrades expected. New Low-Priced Notebook - Kuo believes Apple is designing a new low-priced notebook. He originally said that this would be in the MacBook Air family, but now has changed his mind. Previous rumors have suggested this machine could be a 12-inch MacBook, so Apple may be planning to expand the MacBook lineup with an additional low-cost option to replace the MacBook Air. iMac - Kuo says to expect a significant display performance upgrade, but he does not go into detail about what this will entail and we haven't heard additional iMac rumors at this time. He says the iMac, like other Macs, will get a processor refresh. Apple Watch - Apple is working on two new Apple Watch models for 2018 that will have bigger displays and enhanced heart rate detection features. The two Apple Watch models will measure in at 1.57 inches (39.9mm) and 1.78 inches (45.2mm), roughly 15 percent bigger than in the current models. Rumors have not been clear on whether the Apple Watch itself will be larger or if the bigger display will come from a reduction in bezels. Kuo wraps up his note with a prediction that the highly-anticipated AirPods and the AirPower will go into mass production in the third quarter of 2018, suggesting a late fall launch. Apple first announced the AirPower in the fall of 2017, but has reportedly run into some problems with production. Recent rumors have said Apple is aiming for a September launch for the AirPower. Kuo doesn't provide details on when we might see refreshes to Apple's other product lines, but the company could be planning to launch all of the new products at its annual September event, which is typically held during the first or second week of September. In the past, Apple has also held separate October events when there is a heavy fall product lineup to unveil, so Macs and iPads could also come in that month. Source
  3. Notebook Hardware Control 2.4.3 Professional Edition Portable Managing the components of a portable system and optimizing their usage to obtain the best performance with minimal power consumption is not an easy task, unless a specialized software is available. One such utility is Notebook Hardware Control (NHC), a program dedicated to power management and hardware monitoring. The well organized interface provides information about system components as well as quick access to all the functions of the application. Notebook Hardware Control helps you to: control the hardware and system power managementcustomize the notebook (open source ACPI Control System)prolong the battery lifetimecool down the system and reduce power consumptionmonitor the hardware to avoid system failuremake your notebook quietThus, you can view details like the CPU clock and current load, the processor and hard drive temperatures, CPU voltage and speed, as well as the available physical and virtual memory. Notebook Hardware Control (NHC) is able to detect for how long the system has been running (the power-on time) and read battery stats. The software features an Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI) control system that can handle may power options, and set thresholds for critical CPU temperature that send a warning or shutdown the system, depending on the selected values. A neat thing about Notebook Hardware Control (NHC) is that it allows you to activate a set of tray icons for various parameters that you may want to monitor without having to bring up the program's interface every time. You can choose icons for processor clock, temperature, speed or load, as well as HDD temperature. Notebook Hardware Control (NHC) can also track the battery charge level and for certain laptops it provides a function called Notebook FAN Control which is useful for reducing the noise coming from the system cooler running at high speeds when it doesn't have to. To sum things up, it's safe to say that with the help of this application users can really benefit and adjust the power settings of their notebooks in such a manner that the system components are spared of unnecessary wear and tear. Here are some key features of "Notebook Hardware Control": prolong the battery lifetime and cool down the system with CPU Voltage Control and ATI Clock Control.full processor speed control with custom dynamic switching and CPU Speed Control (CPU policy)monitor the battery charge level and system temperature.control and monitor the Hard Drive with S.M.A.R.T management, acoustic & advanced power management and Hard Drive temperature monitoring.reduce noise with Notebook FAN ControlWebsite: http://www.pbus-167.com/ OS: Windows XP / Vista / 7 (Only x32!)

  4. ASUS just wrapped up their CES 2014 press event where they announced a ton of great new products. One of those products was the ASUS Transformer Book Duet TD300, which theyre calling the worlds first 4-in-1 laptop / tablet combo running both Android and Windows on one chipset. Its the first device to use Intel to run both Android and Windows on the same chip, meaning theres little overhead and resources being used for emulating one or the other. asus transformer book duet td300 photo op This sort of combo has been done before, but devices typically need separate SoCs for each respective platform. Said SoCs might only be activated in certain states (for example, Windows would only be accessible while docked inside of a tablet dock). It certainly is an exciting achievement for ASUS and Intel, and it should prove to be the breakthrough needed to help increase the popularity of this useful form factor. Even more exciting is its price tag: just $599 to walk away with one, apparently. We should note that is only the devices starting price tag, though, which will come with a Core i3 processor and a 13.3-inch 1,366 x 768 display. That same configuration can be had in 1080p flavoring for just $100. Models in the range go all the way up to a 1080p HD display with Intels Core i7 fourth generation processor. Were not quite sure how much that will cost just yet, but judging by ASUS desire to keep costs down on other products in their lineup, we cant imagine itll be a huge difference. Were a bit saddened that this thing will only be running Android 4.1 at launch, but at least the Windows installation is the latest version available. Well be crossing our fingers that ASUS brings us up to at least Android 4.3, though wed give them extra cool points if they can find a way to squeeze a KitKat bar in there somewhere. It should be launching in Europe and Asia in Q1 2014, and will be making its way stateside in Q2 http://phandroid.com/2014/01/06/asus-transformer-book-duet
  5. I have a Sony vaio VPCEB24EN notebook which is about 3 years old. I recently had a thermal issue with it and was unable to boot. Turned out that's the bug of the thermal paste which was expired. I ordered a new one and applied it removing the previous one clean. I have cleaned the vents and fan. After the application of new paste, now I'm able to boot my laptop but the thermal condition wasn't improving. After 15 mins from booting temperature reaches 55-600C doing usual tasks like opening and closing of windows, viewing images listening to music etc. During this, the CPU uses is just 0-5%. Now if you play some video, the CPU goes about 5-10% and the heat rises to 60-650C. Now you connect to the internet, the CPU uses remains about 0-10% (with browser running) heat goes upto 70-750C. So there is nothing that could be done physically anymore. The doubt goes to the logical part now. I mean, the drivers and utilities from sony. My model isn't supported at sony for windows 8 upgrade so there is no official support for it. I saw there that the windows 8 supported upgrades are provided with new drivers and utilities that are specially designed for windows 8 including the BIOS upgrade. I can not use them as they are not for my model, specially the BIOS update which is more crucial for windows 8. So what do you guys suggest now? Is there any way left?
  6. Hi Nsane community :hi: , I have MSI gaming notebook with 8 GB of Nanya RAM (4 * 2) .After about eight month of purchasing date , I got a problem with one of the RAM #1 which cause BSOD (MEMORY MANAGEMENT) .I did memory diagnostic on Windows 7 and the result was "Hardware problem was detected .." . Why this happen ? I did't make any thing wrong with my laptop ,(I mean I really care about its temperature and keep it clean from dust ..) By the way The laptop is still working well (running games , programs ,NET ) except sometimes I get the mentioned BSOD. :please: Is there any one knows about or faced like that problem ? And what do you advise me to do about my sick ram ? :( Solved : I brought my laptop to MSI service center to fix it .. Staff there told me that both of RAMs have a problem .They replaced RAMs with new same brand RAM (NANYA) .When I asked them about what was the problem ,they just told me that "Unexpected error occurred !" The important thing my laptop is now working like charm without any annoying BSOD :D
