Sapphire Mini PC Edge: AMD vs Intel by Sapphire

We’ve encountered a few Sapphire Edge Mini PC computers. It’s a HTPC computer of small dimension, and every subsequent Edge Mini PC that we’ve received for testing was noticeably better. With the advent of AMD APU, we expected that Sapphire will present Edge Mini PC based on it, and precisely that happened in the third generation of this HTPC.

Sapphire Edge HD3 had a first generation APU (AMD APU E450 1,6 GHz with AMD Radeon HD6320) and its performances were satisfactory. However, when Trinity APU appeared, the expectations were greater, especially in terms of graphic performances. New series of Sapphire Edge Mini computers, under the name of “Edge VS” was based on Trinity APU, and to make things more interesting, Sapphire still didn’t give up on the “Edge HD” series, which at its base has a new generation Intel Celeron.

Cooler Master Scout 2: Scout from party 2

The title of this review definitely sounds like a sequel to a cheap Hollywood comedy, but Cooler Master was serious in their intention to improve their Scout model, so you’re seeing CM Storm Scout 2 (hereafter “Scout 2”).

Intel 14 nm Skylake platform

Intel's first chips based on the company's new, and Industry first, 14-nanometer manufacturing process are expected to hit markets in late 2015, Techpowerup said. With Skylake, Intel will introduce their new 9th-generation Intel HD IGP. The new platform, Intel's 9th generation HD IGP, will be the first to bring dual-channel DDR4 memory support. Skylake will be more of an evolution of Broadwell, which in turn is essentially an die shrink of Haswell to 14nm. Additionally, the new mainstream platform will bring in support for PCI-E 4.0, essentially doubling the bandwidth offered by the current PCI-E 3.0 standard. Skylake will also introduce support for SATA Express that allows a max bandwidth of about 16 Gb/s, more than 2.5x the 6 Gb/s bandwidth offered by the current SATA standard.

Sony Xperia Tablet Z: Slim and mean

When Sony Mobile introduced Xperia Z smartphone, their first smartphone after divorce with Ericsson, it  became sure that they meant business. Beautifully designed, thin, water and dust resistant, the first one to offer 1080p screen on many markets, it was a pleasant surprise and a true flagship, something we didn’t see from Sony  for quite some time. During MWC in Barcelona, we were introduced to Sony Xperia Tablet Z,  the first tablet from Sony Mobile communication, who shares a lot of features with a smartphone. We liked the look and the feel, but were a bit worried that Sony will be late to realize this tablet, and that competition will be stronger. Some four months later, we got us a review unit to play with.
