Technology keeps on changing every day as new advances and innovations are being made. Due to the growing people’s need to automate nearly all systems and home appliances, technology has been termed as the fastest growing sphere of human life. Many technologies are coming with new advancements just to outdo their competitors.
Dell Company, for example, is giving a $250 discount on their new XPS-8900 desktop PC. This product features a typically original Skylake CPU, extremely efficient DDR4 RAM and more than enough room for expansion. The PC also has a Core i7 processor with 8GB RAM, one Tera-Byte hard drive capacity, distinct NVidia GeForce 730graphics card, Bluetooth 4.0, DVD burner and support for 802.11 technology support. The package also comes with a corded keyboard and mouse with no additional price.
This Dell product comes with an HDMI and a display port meaning it will be able to work with modern devices. It comes pre-installed with Windows ten operating system which features Cortana – a personalized Digital assistance that will simplify your home and office work. The GeForce graphic card fitted in the product supports many games. However, if a better performance is needed by the user, they will need to purchase a newer card. The RAM and CPU capability is good enough to support many programs running concurrently without any signs of slowing the machine performance down.
Huawei, a mobile technology company, has launched two prototype removable lithium batteries that can be recharged within minutes by using a bespoke charger. The higher capacity prototype is charged to 68% within two minutes while the lower capacity prototype is charged to 48% within five minutes. The higher capacity is not, however, able to run a smartphone while in the former case the battery can provide a phone with a charge for round 10 hours. Currently, battery life is an issue of concern to many mobile phone companies. The Israeli Start-up Storedot launched a device at the beginning of 2015 which they are optimistic c it will be able to charge within one minute when the project is over.
Huawei made this fast charging magic through the use of heteroatoms – atoms that aren’t carbon or hydrogen. The company claims these atoms can enhance the charging speed without affecting the battery’s functionality and lifespan as well.
The Intel Company is said to be developing a 10 core Broadwell-E processor that will feature 25 MB L3 cache. The product will be launched with SKU that should address all the issues of game lovers and other users who need more process threading than the clock speed optimization. The new processor will have 20-thread CPU, unknown turbo frequency, 25 MB of LB and 3GHz base clock.
On other current news, NASA and SpaceX stated that the propulsion system that was made to abort securely the upcoming crewed Dragon capsule – also known as superDraco has been successfully fired and the development testing had been completed. superDraco is a 3D printed engine designed to be controlled from 20 to 100% of thrust and can be restarted at multiple times. This 3D engine will be used in ensuring a crew capsule and aborts mission safely.
