Onkyo DX-Series upgrade dual-display netbook with more pixels

Onkyo DX-Series upgrade dual-display netbook with more pixels

We can't help but wonder whether Kohjinsha will be a little bit frustrated with Onkyo, who have rebranded the company's nifty dual-display netbook but actually one-up'd the original by slotting in higher resolution panels.  The Onkyo DX-Series has the same form-factor as the Kohjinsha DZ, which means a rotating pair of 10.1-inch LCD screens but the footprint of a regular netbook, only theirs uses two 1,366 x 768 panels rather than the original's 1024 x 600.

ASUS Eee PC 1201T dumps Atom for AMD Congo

ASUS Eee PC 1201T dumps Atom for AMD Congo

ASUS have pushed out another 12.1-inch ultrathin, and this time they've eschewed Intel in favor of some AMD goodness.  Unlike the 1201HA and 1201N, the ASUS Eee PC 1201T uses AMD's 1.6GHz Congo MV40 processor, along with the RS780MN chipset and ATI Radeon HD3200 graphics; that adds up to 1080p Full HD performance, though it doesn't appear from the spec sheets that ASUS have fitted an HDMI port to the 1201T.

ATI Radeon HD 5970 5 TeraFLOP graphics card debuts

You can't doubt AMD's commitment to marketing speech: the company is describing their new ATI Radeon HD 5970 as the "fastest graphics card in the world", and from glancing at the specifications it certainly looks potent.  The Radeon HD 5970 - which we saw leaked in recent weeks - packs DirectX 11 support, dual Cypress graphics processors for up to 5 TeraFLOPS of power, and the potential for twice that if you hook up twin HD 5970 cards using CrossFireX.  A single card can, thanks to Eyefinity, create a 7,680 x 1,600 workspace across three displays.
