    Whether you’re a tinkerer with a custom rig, or you just aren’t sure why your computer’s fans are running, checking your CPU usage is a pretty common task. Instead of using a boring on-screen activity monitor though, you can hook up your machine to a car tachometer for constant feedback.

    This hack comes courtesy of ivancreations, who created an entire PC monitoring block from real-world components. The full instructions are on his blog and needless to say, they’re pretty complicated. If you can makes heads and tails of his plans though, the results speak for themselves.

    While the tachometer is my favourite part of the build, he also wired up some LED light grids to illustrate other vital system information as well. If you think you’re up to it, or just want a closer look, be sure to check out the source link.

  • ASUS PQ321Q UltraHD Monitor Review: Living with a 31.5-inch 4K Desktop Display

    Comments Off on ASUS PQ321Q UltraHD Monitor Review: Living with a 31.5-inch 4K Desktop Display
    March 15, 2021 /  Computer Technology, Hardware

    Many consider me to be a 4K hater. The past few trade shows I’ve attended have been pushing it on consumers to replace their TVs, but I see less value in it. When it comes to a computer display, it is a different game. Unlike a 50” TV, we sit close to our monitors, even if they are 30” in size. We also have no worries about a lack of native content, since everything is rendered on the fly and native. There are no issues with the lack of HDMI 2.0, as DisplayPort 1.2 can drive a 3840×2160 screen at 60 Hz.

    When it comes to 4K on the desktop, my main question is: how much difference will I see? ASUS is one of the first with a HiDPI display in the PQ321Q. While not truly 4K, it is a 3840×2160 LCD display that can accept an Ultra High Definition (UHD) signal over HDMI and DisplayPort. It also clocks in at a wallet-stretching $3,500 right now. The question is, are we seeing the future with displays here, or are we seeing a niche product?

    What does 4K/UHD/HiDPI bring to the desktop? We’ve seen it for a few years now in smartphones and tablets, making their smaller screens more usable for reading and general work. My initial thought is more desktop space, as that is what it has meant before. With a 32” monitor and a pixel density this high, running it without any DPI scaling leads to a desktop where reading text is a huge pain. Instead I believe most users will opt for DPI scaling so elements are larger and easier to read. Now you have something similar to the Retina screen on the iPhone: No more desktop space compared to a 2560×1440 monitor, but one that is razor sharp and easier to look at.

    To get to this pixel density, ASUS has relied upon a panel from Sharp that uses IGZO technology. IGZO (Indium gallium zinc oxide) is a material that replaces amorphous silicon for the active layer of an LCD screen. The main benefit is higher electron mobility that allows for faster reacting, smaller pixels. We have seen non-IGZO panels in smartphones with higher pixel densities, but we don’t have any other current desktop LCDs that offer a higher pixel density than this ASUS display. IGZO also allows for a wide viewing angle.

    Intel aggressively promote thin laptop “Ultrabook” which recently has begun equipped with a touch screen. Products “2-in-1 ‘was introduced, with various forms of” magic “that can be changed from laptop to tablet and vice versa.

    But all of that as not enough to subvert the glory of Apple’s MacBook Air as the pioneer and the most sought after consumer thin laptops, at least for the U.S. market.

    In Uncle Sam’s, as revealed by research agency NPD report cited by Cnet, controlled 56 percent of the MacBook Air slim laptop sales during the first five months of 2013.

    The remaining 44 percent is divided between partners-manufacturers Intel Ultrabook.

    The latest generation MacBook Air (model 2013) also received positive feedback thanks to the durability of the battery reaches a dozen hours and expected to help maintain the market dominance of these devices in a thin laptop.

    It should be noted that the battery life of the MacBook Air in 2013 made ​​possible by the Core 4th Generation of Intel. Thus, the processor manufacturers also benefit from the success of the MacBook Air.

    But stronghold Windows laptop was not keep silent. In last week’s Build conference, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer said that the hybrid device (2-in-1) with touch screen feature will eliminate the need to carry laptops and tablets separately.

    On the other hand, Apple considers that the touchscreen is more suitable to be applied to the iPad than a laptop. Most consumers seem to agree.
