True Quad-Core Performance at its Most Affordable

amd-phenom-9500-cp2-am2-950.jpgSince the early days of the critically-acclaimed Athlon processors, AMD has been providing us with world-class processors at prices accessible to the mainstream user. Now, with the introduction of their first quad-core processor, the Phenom, AMD seeks to continue its tradition of bringing cutting-edge technology to everyone—from the casual gamer to the demanding office user and everyone in between. If you have always wanted to acquire a true quad-core processor but have always been turned off by the meteoric prices, then give the AMD Phenom 9500 some significant consideration. It is one of the most affordable quad-core processors in the market today.

While very affordable, the AMD Phenom 9500 isn’t one to sacrifice performance at all. It boasts a revolutionary quad-core processor architecture that features all four cores sitting on a single die. AMD calls this a true and “native” quad-core solution. Instead of having to transfer data from core to core across the FSB, this industry-leading “native” quad-core design features an integrated memory controller and a shared L3 cache providing the rapid flow of information between the cores, the main memory and the graphics accelerator. In essence, the Phenom 9500 is able to reach higher levels of computing performance—most especially when faced with the demanding loads in a multi-tasking environment. Indeed, this processor will let you run multiple instances of both single-threaded and multi-threaded applications effortlessly, thereby allowing you to potentially gain a tenfold increase in productivity. Just imagine being able to run resource-hungry applications such as visual design suites, basic office productivity, and Internet browsers all at once without skipping a beat.

Delving deeper into the numbers, the AMD Phenom 9500 clocks in at 2.2 GHz and comes with a 2 MB L3 cache. All the four cores are also equipped with 512 KB of L2 cache memory each. Admittedly, those may not seem like the most mind-blowing set of numbers you’ve seen in a processor. However, as mentioned above, this processor makes use of those numbers in a very efficient and productive manner. This allows the AMD Phenom 9500 to almost breeze through the most challenging loads without having the fastest clock speed or the largest amount of L2 cache. The AMD Phenom is manufactured using the tried-and-tested 65 nm process and as such, it is very dependable and definitely, well-built.

Aside from that, the AMD Phenom 9500 also features the same set of performance-enhancing technologies found in the other Phenom models. The HyperTransport 3.0 Technology highlights that list with its ability to scale performance per the workload of each core. This allows the processor to adjust smoothly to the gamut of computing situations it might come across. The Cool ‘N’ Quiet 2.0 Technology and the AMD CoolCore Technology work in tandem with each other to conserve power during low-stress conditions, allowing for greater energy-efficiency. Last but not the least, the AMD Virtualization Technology aids virtualization software to run more securely and efficiently. All of these technologies make the AMD Phenom 9500 a processor to reckon with.

Enter the next-generation of processors with the quad-core AMD Phenom 9500. It gives you what you ask and seek from quad-core processors without the exorbitant price tag. With its complete set of features and brand-new processor architecture, the AMD Phenom 9500 is definitely worth the money.

The Smallest Bluetooth Adapter in the World – The Mogo Dapter

mogo-dapter-mg103-0102-n105.jpgPeople have always had a fascination with tiny, little technological devices. Whether it be cellular phones, PDAs, laptops, portable gaming devices or what have you, the same rule applies: the smaller it is, the more we want to buy it. While it could simply be because of the fact that tiny gadgets are cute, the benefits of a truly compact gadget extend beyond mere looks in that it should be just as functional as it is portable. For this reason, we can safely say that the smallest Bluetooth adapter in the world, the Mogo Dapter, is a truly compact device.

The thing that screams at you right from the beginning is that the Mogo Dapter is indeed tiny, roughly about the size of a quarter. It is so compact that it is nearly impossible to believe, if it can indeed perform its duties. But don’t let its petite profile fool you even for a single bit. You would be surprised at how well the Mogo Dapter performs its functions.

Described as a “plug and forget” device by its makers, Newton Peripherals, this quarter-sized Bluetooth adapter enables any Windows or Mac laptop to gain connectivity to other Bluetooth-capable devices. With the Mogo Dapter, you will be able to communicate with cellular phones, PDAs, headsets, printers, speakers, cameras and other devices quickly and best of all, without the messy wires. This device uses the Bluetooth standard v2.0+EDR, which boasts connection speeds that are three times faster than the older v1.2 standard. As such, communicating with Bluetooth devices is definitely fast and easy.

What makes the Mogo Dapter even better is that it doesn’t require any complex installation. Simply plug it into an open USB 2.0 port, and presto, you are ready to roll. Since the Mogo Dapter is very compact, you will be able to bring it wherever you go. Unlike other bulkier Bluetooth adapters, this adapter’s well-designed profile hugs the contours of your laptop, so you won’t even notice that it is there.

In addition, USB 2.0 connection is a very stable interface, so interruptions are very rare and far and few in between. This means communicating with other devices is uninterruptible as it is quick. Thus, with the Mogo Dapter, you will spend more time transferring data between devices and using VoIP with a Bluetooth headset rather than wasting time trying to make the Bluetooth adapter work on your laptop. With the Mogo Dapter, it’s really as easy as one, two, three.

All in all, the Mogo Dapter is the epitome of a perfect compact device. It is small as it is capable. Simply put, it is perfect for users who need a reliable and personal network of Bluetooth devices while on the go. It is durable as well, and once you’ve connected it to your laptop, you don’t even have to think about it anymore. It does the job, and it does it excellently. Without a doubt, the world’s smallest Bluetooth adapter sure looks like it’s destined for big things.
