World Cyber Games (WCG), organizer of the premier international video game competition and festival, has announced Samsung SyncMaster as the official monitor for the upcoming WCG 2011 Grand Final.
Samsung SyncMaster S23A950D and S27A550H will be used for the tournaments during the WCG 2011 Grand Final. 600 Players from 60 countries will compete against each other through these monitors.
The WCG 2011 official monitor, Samsung SyncMaster S27A550, provides vivid color & lifelike picture quality that gamers have dreamed ever by supporting Mega DCR (Dynamic Contrast Ratio). So gamers can enjoy blur-free picture quality and clear images even in fast moving images like games. Furthermore, Samsung’s Magic Angle technology is employed – covers a 178 degree viewing angle both vertically and horizontally, as well as delivers a crisp and detailed picture without any color reduction – so gamers can enjoy games in more comfortable environment. By adopting Eco solution, “Eco light sensor” adjusts screen brightness to match the surrounding environment and people can reduce and minimize eye strains even if they’re exposed to monitor screen for a long time.
“Samsung SyncMaster monitor, adopting innovative display technology, is a widely beloved monitor brand from consumers and gamers as a global display leader at the world market. We will do our best to provide the best visual display environment to professional gamers by listening to the feedbacks,” said an official at Display Sales and Marketing Team, Visual Display, at Samsung Electronics. “WCG is proud to have Samsung SyncMaster as the official monitor. We expect the players to enjoy the best quality.” said Brad Lee, CEO of World Cyber Games.
WCG will also have ‘WCG 2011 SyncMaster 3D Live Match’ booth during the Grand Final with EA’s latest 3D game ‘Need for Speed™ The Run’. This is an action racing game developed through Frostbite 2, the same engine at the core of Battlefield 3. At this booth, audience will be able to not only experience the live 3D from SyncMaster but also enjoy various special events. On Dec. 9thand 10th, a famous Korean star gamer Byung Gu ‘Stork’ Song (StarCraft I) will have special matches with the audience and also have a signing event.
IBM scientists unveiled several exploratory research breakthroughs that could lead to major advancements in delivering dramatically smaller, faster and more powerful computer chips.
For more than 50 years, computer processors have increased in power and shrunk in size at a tremendous rate. However, today’s chip designers are hitting physical limitations with Moore’s Law, halting the pace of product innovation from scaling alone.
With virtually all electronic equipment today built on complementary-symmetry metal–oxide–semiconductor (CMOS) technology, there is an urgent need for new materials and circuit architecture designs compatible with this engineering process as the technology industry nears physical scalability limits of the silicon transistor.
Following years of key physics advances previously only achieved in a laboratory, IBM scientists successfully integrated the development and application of new materials and logic architectures on 200mm (eight inch) diameter wafers. These breakthroughs could potentially provide a new technological basis for the convergence of computing, communication, and consumer electronics. Read the rest of this entry »
Getac UK has announced the launch of its 7 inch fully rugged tablet, built to be the smallest and most robust Androidtablet on the market.
The new Z710 has been designed to withstand five ft drops, water and dust ingress (IP65), and boasts the rugged military grade MIL-STD-810G rating. The Z710 can also operate in the coldest and hottest of environments, from -30 degrees C to +60 degrees C. Read the rest of this entry »
D-Link expanded its award-winning line of network switches with the D-Link DGS-105 and DGS-108 Gigabit Ethernet; and DES-105 and DES-108 Fast Ethernet metal switches.
Available in five- and eight-port form factors, these reliable unmanaged switches deliver small and medium-sized businesses with high-speed networking and intelligent data streaming with Quality of Service (QoS) prioritization, and leverages D-Link’s Green Technology saving up to 85 percent on power consumption.
Effortless Gigabit Networking in a Rugged Enclosure
Increasing in popularity, metal switches are one of the fastest growing categories of unmanaged switches. The D-LinkDGS-105 and DGS-108 Gigabit metal switches allow small and medium-sized businesses to benefit from the increased bandwidth inherent with Gigabit Ethernet, and enable them to cost-effectively expand and upgrade their networks. The switches deliver ease-of-use installation features with a simple plug-and-play design and built-in cable diagnostics for easy network troubleshooting. In addition, the switches are packaged in a rugged metal enclosure providing security and reliability, and can be mounted on the desktop or walls via a built-in mount.
“D-Link understands that small and medium-sized businesses rely on easy-to-use network technology that provide high-end features, reliability and performance without breaking the bank,” said Mark Prowten, director of product marketing, Business Networking Solutions, D-Link Systems, Inc. “The DGS-105/108 and DES-105/108 unmanaged network switches are self-managed rugged switches, combining the latest intelligent switch technology with cost saving Energy Efficient Ethernet enabling businesses to work smarter, faster and be more productive.” Read the rest of this entry »
