Two of AMD chipset for PCs have received certification for the standard USB 3.0, said the forum in the implementation of USB (USB-IF). This is an important step to promote high-speed standard, because so far only solutions for external companies provide support for USB 3.0 on the platforms of Intel and AMD. The certified chipsets are AMD A75 FCH (also known as Hudson-D3) and AMD A70M FCH (Hudson-M3). They are designed respectively for desktop and mobile PCs with fast processors AMD Llano, which combines a silicon crystal CPU and GPU. Each of the two chipset supports up to four port USB 3.0 SuperSpeed with a maximum theoretical speed for data transmission 4.8 gigabits per second, which is 10 times more than USB 2.0. Recently, Intel introduced its own high-speed interface Thunderbolt, which has raised concerns among industry that Intel will turn our back to standard USB 3.0. Intel, however, argues that two interfaces will coexist, and promised to build in USB 3.0 support in its chipsets.

Seagate marketed 3.5-inch hard drive with a capacity of 3 terabytes (TB). Barracuda XT model eliminates the need to modernize the system to overcome the limitations of memory, says the manufacturer. It is known that older BIOS operating systems like Windows XP does not support drives with a capacity exceeding 2,1 TB. Such a possibility is revealed when using devices with interface Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI), developed by IBM, which however is poorly distributed.
Barracuda XT disc overcomes the limitation of using free software Seagate DiscWizard, which adjusts the operating system so as to have access to the entire 3-terabyte space under Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7. In fact, the program crashed hard drive into two logical disk with capacity 2,1 TB and 900 GB.
The model is equipped with SATA 3.0 interface with speed 6 gigabits per second and buffer 64 MB. Speed of the spindle is 7200 rpm. Recommended by the manufacturer’s retail price is $ 274.
Intel plans to launch soon a new processor socket LGA 1155, incl. chips and Celeron. The company has decided to compromise with the cache. Instead of 3 MB cache, the new Celeron LGA 1155 will have only 2 MB, which will affect the graphics performance. The models Celeron G530 and G540 will offer two cores, and G440 will have only one nucleus. Expected to be reduced and the frequency of HD Graphics 2000.
The date of release of the Celeron LGA 1155 and prices have not yet been announced.
Meanwhile, Intel will release Pentium G620 Sandy Bridge architecture with only $ 64. Dual-core processor comes with 3 MB cache and 2000 HD Graphics not support technology InTru 3D, Quick Sync Video and Clear Video. The chip will work at clock 2,6 GHz.

The Korean IT giant Samsung Electronics set up world’s first full color display with quantum dots. Such screens are brighter, have better energy efficiency and also their production is cheaper. Quantum point represents semiconductor nano-crystals, which is so small that it is manifest quantum effects. In particular, crystal lights under the influence of electric current. The color of the radiation depends on the size of the crystal and the material of which it is made. The 4-inch prototype screen with quantum dots shown by Samsung, is managed by active-matrix, ie each pixel on and off of the thin film transistor. Besides screen glass substrate, Samsung has developed and a prototype of a plastic substrate, to demonstrate the use of new technology in flexible displays. The display with quantum dots consume no more than 20% of the energy required for liquid crystal displays (LCD). It is also brighter and more durable than OLED (organic LEDs). The biggest advantage of new technology, however, is twice as expensive to manufacture LCD and OLED.
According to experts, will require at least 3 years before the new displays to enter the market. Is still much to research and solve complex engineering problems.
