It&rsquo;s uncanny, really, although the introduction of colour options here is a new touch.</p> <p class="p1">The Surface-like experience extends to the software, as well. Jide&rsquo;s Ultra-Tablet uses the company&rsquo;s own Remix OS, which is based on Android 4.4.2 and designed solely for larger screens. But what that really means is that it brings a strong dose of modern Windows influence into Android, with very familiar-looking apps, as well as a taskbar lined with app icons.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Jide Ultra-Tablet" alt="Jide Ultra-Tablet" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/jide-ultratablet-keyboard.jpg?1420865790" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p class="p1">That said, blending the two massively popular operating systems isn&rsquo;t necessarily a bad thing. The productivity afforded by Windows plus the simplicity and app selection of Android? We can&rsquo;t argue with that on the surface (pun intended), and helpful features like the ability to run Android phone apps in correctly-sized windows sounds great.</p> <p class="p1">Likewise, the hardware specs seem quite good. You&rsquo;ll find an 11.6in, 1080p IPS multitouch screen, with an NVIDIA Tegra 4 plus 2GB RAM and 64GB storage within (also a microSD slot). The Ultra-Tablet sounds like it could be a pretty capable device, especially with a custom OS that blurs the line between typical PC and tablet interfaces.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="762" title="Jide Remix OS" alt="Jide Remix OS" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/jide-ultratablet-remixOS.jpg?1420865790" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-2"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p class="p1">Of course, we&rsquo;ll have to see what the price is - and you may need to shake off some guilt for using a device with conspicuous design origins.

It uses the same Maxwell architecture as Nvidia&rsquo;s current crop of high-end gaming graphics cards, and the company says it will begin arriving in products during the first half of this year.</p> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/my/users/sam-kieldsen" title="View user profile.">Sam Kieldsen</a> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>News Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>In the future, the Tegra X1 will be used to power self-driving cars.

Drive PX will feature Auto-Valet, a system that will automatically locate a parking space and manoeuvre your car into it &ndash; then bring it back to you when you&rsquo;re ready to go home.</p> <p>There&rsquo;s also Drive CX, a cockpit computer capable of running digital instrument clusters and infotainment systems. Powered by either the Tegra K1 or X1, Drive CX can power up to 17 million pixels &ndash; more than ten times the amount in current high-end in-car computers.</p> <p>[Source: <a href="http://blogs.nvidia.com/blog/2015/01/04/ces-tegra-x1-nvidia-drive-auto/" target="_blank">Nvidia</a>]</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/why-you-should-be-pumped-about-self-driving-cars/feature">Google, Drive: Why you should be pumped about self-driving cars</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang talks Nvidia Drive at CES 2015" alt="Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang talks Nvidia Drive at CES 2015" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/nvidia-drive.jpg?1421667435" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/nvidia/ces-2015-nvidia-tegra-x1-world-s-first-teraflop-mobile-processor/news" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.stuff.tv/my/nvidia/ces-2015-nvidia-tegra-x1-world-s-first-teraflop-mobile-processor/news#comments CES 2015 Nvidia Self-Driving Cars Smartphones Tablets Mon, 05 Jan 2015 10:21:54 +0000 Hafizah Osman 1456763 at http://www.stuff.tv CES 2015: Asus' Transformer Book Chi in a Windows 2-in-1 as thin as an iPad Air http://www.stuff.tv/my/asus/ces-2015/ces-2015-asus-transformer-book-chi-windows-2-1-thin-ipad-air/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> ..when in tablet mode, that is.

Now there&#39;s another intriguing device with a personality crisis, and it goes by the name of Asus Transformer Book Chi.</p> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/my/users/will-findlater" title="View user profile.">Will Findlater</a> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>News Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p class="p1">In fact, it&#39;s not one device, but three - the 12.5in T300, the 10.1in T100 and the 8.9in T90. All share the DNA of aluminium unibodies with diamond-cut edges and frankly ridiculous skinniness.</p> <p class="p1">The T300Chi is the main event, packing a choice of 1080p or WQHD IPS screens (2560 x 1440), Intel Core M 5Y71 (1.2GHz) or 5Y10 (0.8GHz) processors, 64/128GB SSDs and 4GB or 8GB RAM. In laptop mode it&#39;s 16.5mm thick, which makes it about the same as a MacBook Air (and it&#39;s just 7.6mm thick without the dock). Of course it&#39;s also touch-sensitive, and the resolution wipes the floor with that of Apple&#39;s finest tiny-puter. Claimed battery life is eight hours on a charge, and there&#39;s a 2MP camera for video calls.</p> <p class="p2">The Core M is supposedly good for &#39;everyday computing&#39;, so unlike a Surface or a Macbook, you won&#39;t be playing 2015&#39;s games on the T300Chi.

Inside is a 1.46GHz Intel Atom Z3775 processor, 1 or 2GB RAM and 32GB or 64GB of storage.</p> <p class="p1">The T90Chi packs the same processor as the T100, but has disappointingly low-res 1280x800 8.9in screen. However, at 7.5mm it is, according to Asus, the thinnest nine-inch tab you can buy, and it has a rear-facing 5MP camera to complement the 2MP front-facer.</p> <p class="p1">All devices click together with their keyboard docks magnetically, but the two pieces actually communicate via Bluetooth 4.0, so they work together at a range of up to 20m.</p> <p class="p1">One concern is that all models feature only a single USB3.0 port in type-B configuration (that&#39;s the tiny one you use for charging). Certainly, not as versatile as devices such as Microsoft&#39;s Award-winning Surface Pro 3, although given the top-spec T300Chi clocks in at just US$800 (RM2845), it&#39;s not surprising. The T100 starts at US$400 (RM1423), while the T90 costs from just US$300 (RM1067).
