Gadgets

New Sony Xperia Z3 leaked images have emerged on the interwebs revealing a disassembled smartphone. The leaked images confirm that the smartphone will indeed have a non-removable 3,100 mAH battery. Coming in a slimmer body measuring only 7mm, Sony Xperia Z3 features a 5.2-inch 1080p display and is powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 801 chip clocked at 2.5GHz. The upcoming flagship will have 3GB of RAM, 20.7-megapixel primary shooter and will be water-resistant like its predecessors.

Sony Xperia Z3 will characterize Sony’s OmniBalance design language with a few changes to set the smartphone

[Editorial] Something very interesting was given to me recently. A slide from a PS4 presentation which showed the total bandwidth of the PS4 GPU. The Bandwidth in question is claimed by most PR documents to be around 176GB/s as most of you know, but it turns out that the actual bandwidth is somewhere around 140GB/s and drops even more when heavy CPU utilization occurs. While the latter isn’t particularly shocking, the same can’t be said for the actual bandwidth limit. Before I begin, let me state that I have dropped Sony PR an email and will update this editorial as soon as I get a response.PS4 bandwidth not 176

PS4 GPU has an Effective Bandwidth of 120 to 140 GB/s, Not 176 GB/s As Previously Reported

The slide comes from a technical presentation of the Sony PS4 system and as such, it must be treated with the utmost caution. However, from what I can see, if there is one thing you cannot deny, its  that the effective/usable/actual (whatever you want to call it) bandwidth available to the Pitcairn GPU of the PS4 is 120GB/s to 140GB/s. By this I mean the actual bandwidth available to the developers to play with. The problem is, this is something that cant really happen. Not unless the memory clock we know is incorrect too. Confused? let me explain. The bandwidth and the effective memory clock are linked. this is how the equation goes. Lets assume a memory clock 5500 Mhz and a bus of 256Bits. This is how the equation will go [5500 Mhz * 256 Bits =  1408000] then [1408000/(8*1000) = 176]. As you can see, a memory clock of 5.5Ghz and 256 bit bus has to result in 176 GB/s bandwidth. Unless, one of the other variables are incorrect, or the basic premise is flawed.

September is bringing a lot of products in the computer sector but even that pales in comparison to the amount of mobile products launching in September. From Sony to Samsung to Microsoft, we have tons of mobile devices and gadgets coming in so we take a look at what we are expecting from different brands in the next month.Microsoft Sony Motorola September Mobile Releases

September to See Many Mobile Launches – Sony, Samsung, Apple, Microsoft and Motorola Included

Lets begin chronologically, the first date of interest is September the 3rd. Sony will be ready to announce some new phones and maybe even a phablet. If Sony’s past record is to be any indicator then it will push these products very actively in the US Markets, and should be readily available to the US consumers. The next day, September 4th, is the day any technophile and gadget lover should note down in their calenders because we have announcements from across the board. Samsung, Motorola and Microsoft are all queuing up for big announcements.

Samsung and Microsoft will be hosting events in Beijing and New York while Motorola has scheduled an event in Chicago. Samsung is expected to officially announce the Galaxy Note 4 according to latest reports. The rumored devices are 4K OLED TVs and maybe even a competitor to the Google Glass. Motorola will be teasing the new Moto G and ofcourse the anxiously anticipated Moto 360 Smart Watch. And also we will finally get to see the Moto X replacement which might be called the Moto X+1 or the Moto X2. The exact specifications are unknown but it will probably have a larger screen and more TDP overhead.

Update: The PS4 pic is from last year and not Gamescom 14. Leaving the Op-ed as it is though.

[Op-ed] You know, I find Microsoft’s antics pretty interesting. They go through all that trouble to rig up Xbox One showcases even after the high number of times they have been caught using PCs behind the curtains.  False advertisement aside, won’t it be better just to openly admit that these are Target Renders running for the purpose of showing off only? Hmm, maybe not. Interestingly though, a thread at r/PCMasterRace reveals that Sony might be guilty of the exact same thing.Xbox One PC Gamescom

Microsoft Caught Using Nvidia-Powered PC Builds at Gamescom – Who would’ve guessed?

The first thought that came to my mind when I happened across this news at multiple other sites was “Oh no, not again…”. And no, I was not quoting Agrajag from Hitch Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy but rather expressing my exasperation on Microsoft’s antics. However, I found something very interesting in my reddit feeds as well. The subreddit r/PCMasterRace has posted very suspicious pictures of what looks like Sony attempting the same ploy. Frankly speaking, after this, I doubt I am ever going to trust a console demo completely, no matter how much it looks like the real deal. And I have a feeling, that I wont be alone with these trust issues. Microsoft has garnered a lot of bad PR in the past in their use of PCs to demo games with amazing graphical prowess and then later releasing a cut down and downgraded version to retail. But if Sony is doing the same here, and that’s a big if, logic dictates that this might not be the first time they have done something like this.

We’ve heard quite a lot about the Sony Xperia Z3 in the past couple of weeks. From components of the flagship smartphone to its specifications, one thing that was clear was that the Xperia Z3 would differ only in terms of design and not specifications from the Z2. Well, today benchmarks have appeared on the GFXBench website for a Sony flagship. The name of the device on the site is D6603 and the specs are almost entirely similar to the Xperia Z2.

Sony is expected to soon launch the next version of it’s Xperia smartphones, the Sony Xperia Z3. We’ve seen quite a few pictures of the Sony Xperia Z3 for you before. The Sony Xperia Z3 is expected to be a minor upgrade over the current Xperia Z2 in terms of performance specifications and hardware. But the Xperia Z3 is not the only smartphone the company is expected to launch. Pictures have also been regularly surfacing of what seems to be the Sony Xperia Z3 Compact.

With the IFA and Apple’s September 9 launch event both merely a month away, the big question on everyone’s mind is whether to upgrade their smartphones. Smartphones are all up for a major upgrade with even Sony only being a few paces away from an Xperia Z3 and Z3 compact launch. Whether you’re an Android user or an Apple fanboy-girl, next month’s events will sadly leave your device a little bit behind the specs race. Well, before you go on making the decision to upgrade, it would be pertinent to take a look at what the existing flagship devices from all the major manufacturers have to offer. So here’s our showdown on the flagship handsets of today, complete with a detailed comparison of their performance benchmarks as well.

Looks like the Sony Xperia Z3 and the Xperia Z3 Compact are both official and nearing a launch. Previously pictures were leaked showing what appeared to be the Xperia Z3 Compact, and the pictures we have received today seem to be a continuation of these images. The Xperia Z3 Compact is expected to come with a Krait 400 processor capable of achieving a frequency of 2.2 GHz. Sony’s trademark 20.7 MP rear camera is also expected to feature on the device. In addition to this, the Xperia Z3 Compact is to support 4G and be waterproof.

We’ve seen quite a few Sony Xperia Z3 leaks up till now. The information has been quite diverse, ranging from alleged specifications of the device to it’s alleged exterior. By the looks of things, the Sony Xperia Z3 just might be about to enter mass production. In ddition to this, the Xperia Z3 is expected to be a minor upgrade over it’s predecessor. It is to come with Snapdragon 804 clocked at 2.4 GHz with 3 GB of RAM and 5.5″ display of 1920 x 1080p resolution. Well, after the Xperia Z3, we’re also looking at pictures that claim to show the Sony Xperia Z3 Compact.

Sony’s Xperia Z3 has caused quite a buzz lately. Just a couple of days back, we covered a huge leak of the flagship smartphone. This covered almost every specification of the device and was courtesy of well known tipster @evleaks. According to @evleaks, the Sony Xperia Z3 is to come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor. This can be clocked at 2.4 GHz. In addition to this the Xperia Z3 will come with a Adreno 330 GPU and 3 GB RAM with 16 GB internal. For complete information, check out the link above. Well, we have more Xperia Z3 news for you today. Well, less of news and more of pictures really. Pictures of the Xperia Z3′s exterior have allegedly been leaked straight off a manufacturing facility.

@evleaks is back and this time its about the Sony Xperia Z3. Sony is expected to launch its next flagship smartphone on this year’s IFA fair which starts on September the 5th. Looks like @evleaks is really interested in the Xperia Z3. The tipster has provided us with pictures as well as alleged specifications of the device. The pictures show a relatively thin device. It is of course, entirely in black, with a relatively simple design, which follows Sony’s tradition. Apart from the pictures, @evleaks has also provided us with what he says the specifications of the Xperia Z3 will be. These specifications show the Xperia Z3 to be a minor update to the Xperia Z2.

Software

Just two days back Microsoft announced that the Xbox One will be getting continuous updates up till October. For fans of the console this was good news. Microsoft’s update system takes into account user feedback and then accordingly makes adjustments to the popular platform. The update came in the form of a tweet by the chief himself, Phil Spencer. For the uninitiated, Microsoft has been periodically updating the Xbox One since February, to much appreciation of its fans. Amongst the list of updates to be expected, much anticipated 3D Blu-Ray compatibility was listed as well.

PS4

PS4 To Get 3D Blu-Ray Support Through Firmware Update 1.75 By Next Week

Well, those in the PS4 camp need not be disappointed either. Within 23 hours of the tweet by Mr. Spencer, Sony has responded for the PS4. This response comes after the release of firmware update 1.74 for the PS4, which was only two days back. Of course, 1.74 was not a major update. It had a simple changelog and promised that “system software stability during use of some features has been improved.” Having a 194 Mb download size, no other patch notes were provided alongside. Well enough of that anyways.This news comes directly from the folks behind the PS4.

Through a twitter post, Sony promises Firmware Update 1.75 for the PS4. This will include 3D Blu-Ray compatibility for the console as well. In fact, it looks like the folks over at PS4 themselves are pretty excited about the news as well. The official tweet says “Coming next week: PS4 system software update 1.75 adds 3D Blu-ray film support. Woo-hoo!” Thats a very swift and enthusiastic response indeed. It should also be mentioned that the PS3 already has 3d Blu ray. Of course there are a couple of other things we’d like in the PS4 as well. These include a variety of features in its predecessor such as CD, MP3 and DLNA support. Plus, Xbox’s updates also include interesting features such as activity feed updates and an expanded area on the home screen. Try harder Sony, try harder.

[Editorial] Before I begin a few words of caution. It goes without saying that the results of this benchmarking showdown will not be pleasant to some. Also, all the benchmarks were conducted virtually, which means that some slight variation may exist between real life results.

PS4′s GPU (Pitcairn) Benchmarked Against the Xbox One (Bonaire) with and without eSRAM

Wow, I don’t think there has ever been an instance of a universal benchmark, and for good reason too. Since an actual universal benchmark would instantly put the power hierarchy in harsh relief it has not been done. However what we are going to attempt today is the closest you will ever get to a universal real life benchmark and the results should be very accurate. Alright lets start. Since both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One utilize AMD GPUs, that means that we are only going to use the AMD Equation System. A basic introduction of both the GPUs is in order. The PS4 GPU is codenamed Pitcairn and is basically a cut down variant of the Radeon 7870. It has a fairly high SP count and is clocked reasonably high too. The GPU has access to 8GB of Shared GDDR5 memory clocked a 1375 Mhz (5500 Mhz effective) and boasts throughput of upto  176 GB/s. Pitcairn has a 256 Bit bus which is quite reasonable for a GPU of this tier. The good thing about PS4′s GPU is that we have everything we need to calculate performance with almost zero real life variation.

Hardware

With the release of the latest PlayStation 4 and Xbox One video game consoles, the gaming industry has become brighter than ever, but it is not only the consoles that are contributing towards the growth of the industry. PC gaming might not be something that is all over the internet right now like the latest consoles, but it surely is one of the pillars that are keeping the gaming industry in place. According to a latest Jon Peddie Research report, PC gaming hardware market now stands at more than $21.5 billion worth.

Slide 1

PC Gaming Hardware Market is Double the Value of Console Market – More than 21.5 Billion Dollars

In everything that is currently going on in the gaming industry concerning the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles, it looks like PC gaming is somewhat fading away from the media front, but despite the gradual decline in demand for home PC hardware, the market for gaming specific PC hardware is actually doing really well. As a new Jon Peddie Research report (via MCV) claims, the total value of PC gaming hardware market worldwide is more than $21.5 billion, that is twice the worth of console gaming market, and it is predicted that the figures will grow significantly over the next three years.

The successor to the Xperia Z2, the Sony Xperia Z3 was announced this February by Sony. Since then, it’s been relatively quiet out there when it comes to the Xperia Z3. That was then. Now images have been leaked online courtesy of the Chinese site digi-wo. The Xperia Z3 is expected to come bundled with Android 4.4 KitKat. The processor on the phone is expected to be a Qualcomm Snapdragon S801 which clocks at a decent 2.5 GHz. This will be coupled with an Adreno 330 GPU and a digital camera with a resolution of 20 MP.  Thats what the phone is expected to come with on the inside. How it looks on the outside is an entirely different matter though, and now thanks to the Chinese we can finally take a look at the Sony Xperia Z3.

Xperia-Z3-picture-leak_1

Xperia Z3 To Feature Minor Design Changes – These Include Curved Sides And A Relocated Speaker Grille

The images leaked of the Xperia Z3 cover the device almost completely. The pictures show that the Xperia Z3 will be a device with more rounded corners. This is perhaps Sony’s response to user complaints of the previous model being too uncomfortable to hold. Other design changes on the Xperia Z3 include a repositioned speaker grille and the potential absence of secondary speakers. Apart from these, a dedicated camera button on the smartphone seems to have been retained. Magentic connector, Micro SD, Micro SIM and Micro USB ports are all present on the phone as well. The Xperia Z3 pictures also show a 3.5 mm headphone jack on top and a similar 1/2.3-inch 20.7MP Exmor RS sensor with G Lens. These pictures show a device which is remarkably similar to the Xperia Z2. Let us know what you think about the pictures in the comments box.
