Yesterday we got to know about the Xoom 2 through some pics and vague info regarding the specs. But more specs are now surfacing thanks to the folks at the verge.
The supposed leak includes specs such as :
- An unspecified Dual core processor
- 1 GB of faster RAM – does it mean ddr2 ? like in Atrix ?
- 1080p Video recording with Netflix streaming (does this suggest OMAP4 ?)
- Stylus and optional keyboard accessory planned
Other details include Adobe flash player 11 support (Supposedly the first tablet to feature this), Home automation software to be included (IR support in hardware ? ) and some built in moto apps for wirelessly syncing with your PC. Let’s just hope all these rumors are true.

ASUS, today has revealed a new variant of a graphic card based on the AMD 6770 graphics chipset, which is a mid range graphics card.
What’s special about this card is the fanless design that allows literally a zer0 dB operation. The cooling method used here is a heatsink. Dubbed the directCU method of cooling, it features a massive heat sink, that is supposedly 95% larger and 16% cooler. This card will be an option for people, who hate the whiny fan sound that usually accompanies graphics-intensive games like GTA4 or Crysis.
Other miscellaneous advantages include slightly better performance thanks to the use of super alloys, increases the performance by 15% says ASUS. The GPU is DX11 compatible, has 800 stream processors ( please do not compare with Nvidia, the architectures are different ), and 40 texture units. All this, is supported by a 128-bit memory interface and a 850Mhz clocked engine. Only concern is what the heat levels will be like, considering there is no fan on the GPU.
Crysis 2 in DX11 awaits.
Price – Rs.9750/- excluding taxes, 3 years warranty.
