PQI Announces The New iConnect Mini at CES 2016

PQI Introduces the New iConnect Mini at CES 2016 The world’s smallest flash drive storage for iPhone / iPad / iPod devices available for the first time in the USA   December 10th, 2015 – Taipei, Taiwan – Foxlink, PQI, the world’s leading brand of peripheral storage accessories for portable devices, announces the availability of the revolutionary iConnect Mini Lightning flash drive for Apple devices. The iConnect Mini will be on display for the 1st time during the CES tradeshow taking place January 6th– 9th, 2016 in Las Vegas, Nevada, located in the South Hall 1st floor, booth # 20651. The iConnect Mini measures at an astoundingly small size of only 44.6mm x 12.6mm x 8mm, (approx. 1 ½” x ½” x ¼”), or roughly equivalent to the size of an average person’s thumb. Yet, the iConnect Mini still offers storage capacity up to 128GB, which is made possible through PQI’s exclusive COB 3.0 technology. The iConnect Mini offers a one button photo and video back-up function, allowing the user to back up all photos and videos stored on an iPhone, iPad, or iPod within a matter of minutes. This feature can be performed manually or automatically. When the iConnect Mini is attached to an iPhone, it can automatically save all images and videos directly to the device, so that the iPhone storage capacity is not impacted and remains untouched. For added security, the iConnect Mini supports the Apple Touch ID security, using an individual’s unique finger print to ...



What does FinFET mean for Gamers?

There’s a ton of leaks and rumors circulating about the AMD Arctic Islands and NVIDIA Pascal GPUs slated to release next year. Right now, it’s hard to get too excited about anything. Don’t get me wrong, I believe the new releases are going to be phenomenal, but we’re so early before the release of these products that any actual performance numbers are still a long ways off. However, there are still a couple of pieces of information being leaked that are intriguing and quite frankly, should be getting gamers very excited about the games of 2017 and beyond. FinFET is a new process that helps shrink the size of the transistor to 14nm or 16nm. Both TSMC and Global Foundries have managed to get their processes mature enough that they can begin mass production shortly, but we still have to see how good the yields are for determining what the cost of the new GPUs will be. Since graphics cards have been stuck on the 28nm process for quite some time now, it makes sense that efficiency and performance are going to improve significantly. While AMD is claiming double the performance per watt, that can mean little until actual gaming performance is measured. Many times, that double per watt slogan can translate into something quite a bit less than what it sounds like. However, the other factor is the massive amount of transistors that can be squeezed into one die as a result of the shrink. The flagship chip should contain up to 18 billion transistors, over do...
