Powerful and compact notebook Fujitsu-Siemens Computers

Evgenie Rudometov

On the basis of high-powered computer accessories company Fujitsu-Siemens Computers, has released the multifunctional multimedia notebook, capable to make a competition not only to alternative models, but also powerful desktop systems

Development of electron technologies is accompanied by release of the newest products with the expanded functionality and the improved consumer properties. Designers aspire to reduce as much as possible energopotreblenie and weight of the products, doing all of them more compact. This process mentions not only traditional products of consumer electronics, but also various computer equipment. This engineering gains the increasing distribution called by reduction of price and growth of functionality, reached thanks to evolution of solid-state technologies. As a result of their development complexity of computer accessories raises. It allows to reduce the sizes and weight of finished articles that has found reflexion in appearance of compact models of desktop computers which all become more functional, more powerful.

However, despite all advantages of traditional desktop systems, weight and a binding from an electrical network providing them energopitanie, limit areas of usage of similar engineering. Really, traditional desktop computer presented even by a compact model, you will not take with yourself in road, to business trip or holiday. Nevertheless, the requirement for such arrangements is greatest, that has found the reflexion in appearance and fast development of transportable computers of type a notebook.

Created on the basis of small on the size, but powerful and energoekonomichnyh processors, modern notebooks are high-powered arrangements and differ the big functionality. These possibilities are supported and extend through carefully designed architecture.

For the extension of possibilities the architecture admits hooking up of the big number of various peripheral devices through special plugs. It can be external disk drives, flash-memory charms, digital videocameras and cameras, players MP3, scanners, printers, etc . Thus in modern notebooks despite presence of the built in qualitative is liquid-crystalline displays (ZhK-displeeev), convenient keyboards and thumbwheels hooking up of peripherals of similar assignment, as a rule, is provided.

And still the structure of notebooks includes multi-channel audiosystems, rather powerful video resources and the built in optical drives of CD/DVD.

The various communication facilities widely presented in notebooks concern standard components of modern transportable systems. Some of them provide hooking up to a computer network, others – possibilities of a beam coupling and access to the Internet. And recently to them the unit of wireless communication Wi-Fi realising standard IEEE 802.11a/b/g was added.

As an example powerful, compact, multifunctional, a laptop it is possible to result notebook Fujitsu-Siemens AMILO M 1420 which are a part of a lineup of transportable arrangements, released by known company Fujitsu-Siemens Computers. This number is resulted in a Fig. 1.

Appearance of notebook Fujitsu-Siemens AMILO M 1420 is presented in a Fig. 2. Key parametres of this transportable computer are resulted in Table 1.

Usage as a part of notebook Fujitsu-Siemens AMILO M with clock rate of 1,7 GHz provides 1420 transportable processors of Intel of Pentium M energoekonomichnost and productivity to system. For saving of energy of secondary generators operation of the processor and other accessories is carried out in an optimum behaviour which automatic choice is fulfilled in dependence of character of solved tasks.

1420 it is possible to judge possibilities of notebook Fujitsu-Siemens AMILO M on the main technical parametres resulted in Table 1 and short features of its architecture. The additional information on a pattern of the given notebook is given by the manager of the arrangements which screenshot is resulted in a Fig. 3.

It is necessary to mark, that the considerable extension of functionality is promoted by the built in videoadapter created on the basis of chip ATI. As consequence of application of the powerful processor, high-speed type of dynamic storage, and the specified solution of a video subsystem, productivity Fujitsu-Siemens AMILO M 1420 considerably exceeds not only possibilities of notebooks with the drawing built in a chip set, but also in a number of tests metrics of desktop systems.

By way of illustration growth of metrics of productivity at the expense of application of modern solutions and accessories for matching as the original measurement standard the notebook with the built in drawing used. As the accessible variant, has been used RoverBook Nautilus E410W. The structure of this notebook includes Intels of Pentium M of 1.5 GHz with kernel Banias, Intel chip set 855GM, built in structure of this chip set graphics resources of a video subsystem, 14.1"Zhk-display with the permission 1024 x 768, the disk drive on replaceable magnetic disks (HDD) with informational size of 40 Gbytes, optical drive DVD / CD / CD-RW / CD-R.

From the results of testing resulted in Table 2 it is visible, that productivity of notebook Fujitsu-Siemens AMILO M 1420 really exceeds similar metrics of notebook RoverBook Nautilus E410W released two years ago on a basis topovoj of model of the processor of Intel of Pentium M. Here it is necessary to take into consideration that the model of the processor with clock rate of 1,5 GHz was then one of upper among (1,3, 1,4, 1,5, 1,6 GHz) efficient transportable processors., considering, besides, presence of cheap Intels Celeron M, rather high-speed Mobile Pentium  of 4 and economic models with low and an ultralow voltage of power supply of a kernel. Created on the basis of 1,5 GHz of the processor notebook RoverBook Nautilus E410W was then the high-powered arrangement. Considering this, revealed in the course of acquaintance, testing and the analysis advantage of notebook Fujitsu-Siemens AMILO M 1420 over RoverBook Nautilus E410W is necessary for considering as natural evolution of transportable computers therefore productivity and functionality grows.

As to matching Fujitsu-Siemens AMILO M 1420 with desktop computers, that, it is illustrated by data in Table 3. In the course of testing in some cases the performance level has exceeded metrics of the desktop system constructed on the basis of the processor of Intel of Pentium 4 E 530 with clock rate of a kernel of 3 GHz. Such case is illustrated by the results of test Whetstone FPU presented in Table 3 and in a Fig. 4. However for the sake of justice, it is necessary to mark, that there are facts and opposite. Eventually, desktop systems also do not stand on a place and acquire more and more perfect and efficient components. Nevertheless, the received results of testing deserve the most steadfast attention as show fast development of transportable systems.

So, the resulted results allow the underplate to assert, that modern transportable computers are really capable to compete on a performance level not only with competing models of notebooks, but also to make a worthy competition to desktop high-powered systems, at least, as it follows from tests, in some computing tasks.
