ARM Cortex-A12 brings big.LITTLE to the mass market in 2014

ARM has revealed its latest processor, the ARM Cortex-A12, packing 40-percent more performance than a Cortex-A9 but with the same power consumption and in a 30-percent smaller package. The big.LITTLE compatible A12 is a 28nm chip that can be paired with ARM's Cortex-A7 cores, driving the new, more powerful chips when processing grunt is needed, and then turning to the frugal A7's when prolonging battery life is the priority.

Android 4.3 software boosts “leaked” by HTC developers [UPDATE]

This weekend a couple new Android source updates have been inadvertently leaked by some HTC developers aiming at getting some teaching done before their next main event at Google I/O 2013. In a post by the San Francisco Android Group this week, an event has been planned for May 16th, 2013 - that being right in the midst of Google I/O - at this event for this specific Android group, "a trio of dev gurus from HTC" are said to be headed over to let loose some information about Bluetooth Low Energy and Open GL ES 3.0. These features were expected by those watching the upgrades to Android with an extremely close eye - but here they are!

Intel Iris graphics detailed for 4th-Gen Core “Haswell” chips

Intel's 4th-gen Core processors will also debut a brand new Iris graphics system, with the chip company splitting its new line-up into multiple tiers for ultrabooks, thin-and-lights, and mainstream PCs. Ultrabooks powered by the most frugal of Intel's 4th-generation Haswell chips, the U-Series, will get Intel HD, HD Graphics 4600, or HD Graphics 5000, but those machines that can stand a little extra power consumption will get either Iris (for thin-and-lights) or Iris Pro (for mainstream) for at least a doubling in 3D processing performance.

This week the folks at NVIDIA have been revealing bits and pieces of their GPU roadmap with Tegra and GeForce GPU action left and right, moving forward with their newest mobile superhero code-named SoC "Parker." This SoC comes after the still code-named "Logan" and will, if the naming scheme holds true, be Tegra 6 down the road.

Is this a Samsung Galaxy S4 test mule?

All eyes are on Samsung's Galaxy S4 "Unpacked" event this Thursday to see what the company has for Android addicts, but new leaks in China suggest it'll be a powerhouse at least.

Acer Predator AG3620 Review

Acer Predator AG3620 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the new Acer Predator AG3260 gaming PC. While “gaming PC” and “Acer” may not be two terms you immediately associate with one another, Acer has impressed in the past, and is now looking to wow consumers with its Predator G series of computers. In fact, we've reviewed a computer that's quite similar to this one before, only now the Predator is back with Windows 8 and some slightly different hardware. The problem with building a gaming rig is still the same as always, though: PC gamers can be a fickle bunch, with the most hardcore not paying any attention to pre-built machines and instead building their own rigs. That isn't an option for everyone, so can the Predator AG3620 offer enough to be worthy of those gamers' dollars? Read on to find out.

Apple iMac 27-inch (2012) Review

Apple doesn't change things for the sake of change, and that's why we've had to wait a few years for a redesign of the iMac. When a fresh model does arrive, though, it arrives in style: for 2012, the iMac is slimmer than ever, with a crisp new casing that borrows aerospace construction methods and iPhone display technology to wrap together a beautiful, slim computer that's pleasing to the eye whether or not it's powered up. Still, as Apple's mainstream desktop, the new iMac has to perform, too, and with space at a premium there are some interesting choices to be made as to what goes inside. Read on for the full SlashGear review.
