ARM Processors to increase Smartphone efficiency

ARM Processors to increase Smartphone efficiency | PC Supporter

ARM ProcessorSmartphones will no longer have to compromise between performance and battery life. ARM’s A7 microprocessor uses the company’s most energy-efficient chip design to date, and will bring improved performance to entry level smartphones.
Used alongside the forthcoming Cortex A15 in the ‘big.Little’ power-saving architecture, the A7 will also feature in high-end smartphones.
By combining two types of core on the same chip, and assigning different applications to each depending on their requirements, ARM said it can resolve the conflict between the need for both higher performance and longer battery life.

big.Little can reduce power consumption by 70 percent, according to ARM. Gaming and video playback is performed on the more powerful A15 chip, while tasks that require less power, such as making a phone call, are assigned to the A7 to conserve power.
The A7 will be manufactured using a 28-nanometer process; combined with architectural improvements, this will make the processor one-fifth the size, with one-fifth the power consumption, compared with today’s Cortex A8 processor. But the A7 will still give a 50 percent performance boost compared to the A8, according to the company.
The big.Little architecture will have a die size of less than 0.5 square millimeters and draw less than 500 mill-watts of power, said Nandan Nayampally, director of marketing for the ARM processor division.
Furthermore, the A7 and the A15 will have identical features sets, so software applications will run on both cores without modification.
ARM’s designs are licensed and manufactured by companies such as Texas Instruments, Broadcom and Freescale. The chip makers are expected to produce the first A7 parts next year, and smartphone makers will begin fitting them to devices soon after that. It may take chip makers a little longer to implement the combined A7-A15 design, but ARM said this could also appear in smartphones by 2013.

How to Install Hp LaserJet 1320 Printer in Windows 7?

How to Install Hp LaserJet 1320 Printer in Windows 7? Is Hp LaserJet 1320 Printer compatible with Windows 7? Yes it is!

Today Windows 7 is the most popular Operating System using in Homes & Offices all over. In early days due to non-compatibility and support to many Devices (like Printers, Scanners etc.), Windows 7 was not a Primary Operating System according to Professional’s remarks. Many companies made their devices compatible to this New Operating System with updating their Software and Drivers for Devices like Printer, Scanners etc., some of other companies made brand new Devices for new operating system. But some devices were far behind due to non-compatibility with Windows 7, and users were waiting for new release of drivers. Hp LaserJet 1320 is also one of the device, we still hoping from Hewlett Packard to launch updated drivers for 1320, to make it compatible with Windows 7.

Advanced Gadgets - Need or Trend

Surely you will be excited if you buy a new advanced featured iPhone 5 after recycling your ancient one. But is it your Need or its just for Trend?  Of course this is actually depend on your needs and requirements what you choose and why, on other hand, do this new advanced gadget suites your personality? Rarely questions these are, but we are talking about why most of people advancing to modern gadgets? Is it theirs need or just its a trend? Regarding to many survey reports and discussions, most of people using smartphones or even a camera phone for photo-shoot obviously, it means that a camera phone is your need somehow, but buying a smartphone for photo-shoot is either a trend. Using advanced featured gadgets is very good if it fulfils your needs and the way you will use it, but for trend I should say its just waste of money. No doubt that an advanced and latest technology device gives you more features including security benefits and more reliability as well as user friendly env…

Windows 10 Text Looks Blurry and Fuzzy

While I am still searching for this problem, I want to share it here so if someone can support and can give me a detailed answer. First-thing-first, I am on a low-end desktop PC, and I am not sure if the reason behind this problem is my low-end PC or Microsoft Windows 10. Yesterday I switched to Microsoft newly launched Windows 10 on my desktop PC which I am using since last few years regularly only for Office Work, particularly for Microsoft Office documents. I do know that it has only 256MB of graphics memory but I thought to give Windows 10 a chance to operate my PC. The upgrading process from Windows 7 (32bit Home Edition) to Windows 10, was itself so smooth and interesting that I feel its something special from Microsoft this time, and yes it is. Why I am talking only about graphics memory of my PC because Microsoft didn't mention any thing about required graphics card of amount of memory (as far as I read about it), and my RAM and Processor is enough sufficient to operate W…
