Hot on the heels of Microsoft issuing a second wave of layoffs, Toshiba announced that it too will be handing out pink slips. The reason? Apparently the consumer PC market is just too damn volatile, so Toshiba plans to accelerate its restructuring effort that will ultimately see a reduced presence in that market and an increased focus on the "profitable B2B field," or business-to-business segment. Toshiba said it plans to expand its range of business PCs, including its workstations and tablet PCs. It will also be more active in promoting the Internet of Things (IoT), a market Toshiba is confident... Read more...
The television may not be what it once was for a mainstay like Toshiba, but the company's still investing in other growth areas. Just this week, it announced plans to plow 200 billion yen (around $1.9 billion) into its chip business beyond the current year. The outfit's CEO, Hisao Tanaka, confessed as much during an opening ceremony surrounding its chip fabrication plant in Yokkaichi, Japan. In case the financial sum wasn't a clue, Tanaka said that "boosting sales and profits" in the company's semiconductor unit was being made an even greater priority than becoming the world's leader in NAND flash...

The computing world is in something of a frenzy with IFA ongoing in Berlin, and Toshiba's offering up a couple of new items in the wake of that. First up is the Chromebook 2. It's the outfit's second-generation Chromebook, boasting a 13-inch display and two SKUs to choose from. There's a 1080p option as well as integrated Skullcandy audio, with each model boasting a redesigned chassis with a resin lid and a few color options (Charcoal, Aqua and Rose). Chrome OS is onbard, as you'd expect, powered by an Intel Celeron processor, 802.11ac wireless, 2GB/4GB of memory, and a battery good for up to 11.5... Read more...
AMD is launching a new family of products today, but unless you follow the rumor mill pretty closely, it’s probably not something you’d expect. It’s not a new CPU or APU. And it’s not a new GPU or memory kit either. Well then, “what could it be” you ask? Today, AMD is launching its first line of solid state drives (SSDs), targeted squarely at AMD enthusiasts. Whodathunkit? AMD is calling the new family of drives, the Radeon R7 Series SSD, similar to its popular mid-range line of graphics cards. The new Radeon R7 Series SSDs feature OCZ and Toshiba technology,... Read more...
OCZ is launching a brand-new series of solid state drives today, targeted squarely at budget-conscious, mainstream consumers. The new ARC 100 series doesn’t stray far from its roots, however. The ARC 100 features the very same OCZ Barefoot 3 M10 as the higher-end Vertex 460, but these new drives feature more affordable Toshiba A19nm NAND flash memory. The ARC 100 also ships without any sort of accessory bundle, to further bring costs down. We’ve got a 240GB OCZ ARC 100 in-house and have put it through an array of benchmarks, versus a number of other popular solid state drives... OCZ... Read more...

We're getting awfully close to the point where, if you wanted to, you could build an entire PC using only AMD branded parts. One area that's missing is storage, though not for long --AMD is said to be expanding its product portfolio with a line of high performance solid state drives boasting the company's Radeon label. What look to be official slides from AMD detailing the drives have started making the rounds on the web. Based on those slides, it looks like AMD will launch a trio of Radeon R7 Series SSDs in 120GB, 240GB, and 480GB capacities. These will be labeled as Radeon R7 120G, Radeon R7... Read more...
A battle is brewing on the notebook front, and customers are going to be the big winners – that is, customers who want low-end systems. Microsoft is lowering its license fees to help manufacturers like HP produce low-cost Windows notebooks that can take on Google’s Chromebooks. With systems expected to arrive in time for the holidays, you’re probably going to have a lot of options for updating the kids’ old notebooks. Word of Microsoft’s play for the margin-slim low-end comes from Kevin Turner, chief operating officer at Microsoft, who discussed the move during the... Read more...
When it rains, it pours. Toshiba took the wraps off half a dozen refreshed and new mobile devices today, including convertible and detachable laptops, Windows tablets, and a bargain-basement Android tablet. The laptops will start dropping in June, followed by the tablets in July, in plenty of time for students gearing up for fall classes. Arriving in June are the Satellite Radius and Satellite Click 2 Pro laptops, both of which have touchscreens and run Windows. As a convertible, the Radius can be used as a laptop or folded back for a tablet-like experience. It has a 1920 x 1080 resolution display... Read more...
OCZ's RevoDrive series has been a popular enthusiast and workstation-class storage product family for years now.  The last time we looked at an OCZ RevoDrive, the RevoDrive 3 X2 offered smoking-fast performance and bandwidth of up to 1.5GB/sec for reads and 1.25GB/sec for writes, thanks to its PCI Express-based design, which basically comprises four Sandforce-based SSDs on a single card...  Since then, OCZ was acquired by Toshiba and has been going through its product stack, revamping their SSD portfolio with fresh re-designs based on Toshiba NAND Flash memory...

The company has just outed one of the planet's first 4K laptops, and if pixel density is your top priority, this one's going to be tough to resist. The Satellite P55t has a full-fledged 4K display, and the first to earn Technicolor's Color Certification. It's meant mostly for creative pros, but enthusiasts will find plenty to love as well. It's equipped with a 15.6" IPS screen, a 3840 x 2160 resolution, and 282PPI (pixels per inch) to gawk at. Toshiba clims that it's Technicolor Certified... Read more...
