At a very high level, the Eee Pad is yet another Honeycomb tablet. It's got an NVIDIA Tegra 2 SoC, 1GB of LPDDR2 memory, a WiFi radio, and 16GB of NAND on-board. Delve a little deeper and the story quickly becomes more interesting. We'll start at the price: $399 for 16GB WiFi. That's $100 cheaper than the equivalent iPad, and $200 cheaper than the lowest priced Xoom.
"There are many kinds of In-Plane Switching panels on the market, one of the newer ones being Professional IPS (or P-IPS), as found on Asus' PA246Q. P-IPS is really a marketing derivative of H-IPS (Horizontal IPS) now commonly used to denote a 10-bit panel capable of reproducing 1.07 billion colors. Wading through all the nomenclature can be a dizzying task, but what you should take away from all this is that Asus is going for gold by using a top-of-the-line panel.
ASUS is considered by many to be second only to Apple in innovative product design. Some people might even argue that ASUS design is superior to Apple's, but that is the realm of opinion. When ASUS unveiled un the NX90 among other laptops at CES 2010, it created quite a stir among journalists and analysts present at the press conference. My personal interest was piqued when this laptop was shown because ASUS touted the NX90 as conquering one of laptops most glaring weaknesses in my opinion - weak speakers with 'tinny" sound.
Asus has steped out to promote its new approach to motherboard design, the Dual Intelligent Processors, or simply DIP. The idea behind it is actually a combination of two Asus' technologies, TurboV Processing Unit and Energy Processing Unit, in order to bring better performance and greater energy efficiency.
The AMD "Cypress" desktop Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) has been available on the market (as the ATI Radeon HD 5870 graphics accelerator) for over two quarters now. Since its release, the RV870 XT GPU part used in the ATI Radeon HD 5870 has appeared on a number of graphics accelerator designs other than ATI's own "reference" Radeon HD 5870. Notable examples include Gigabyte's GV-R587SO-1GD and the MSI R5870 Lightning, both being re-engineered iterations of the ATI Radeon HD 5870, complete with alternate power and thermal layouts.
Working together with leading accessory and memory manufacturer G.Skill, ASUS proves once more innovation and perfectionist persistence go a long way, this time helping deliver the fastest ever DDR3 memory.
Asus' Eee Keyboard is small home entertainment PC packed into a standard size QWERTY keyboard.
The design of the Eee Keyboard is quite innovative. It can be used as standalone PC with an integrated 5” touchscreen, but it also allows wired or wireless connection to any HD TV or computer monitor. After many delays launch date is finally set somewhere between end of April and beginning of May.
Asus ROG (Republic of Gamers) booths have always been great places to get a whiff of some serious overclocking, and this time it’s no exception. Until we report with the results, enjoy these few tidbits.
