Eurocom Releases 780W Adapter for Mobile Workstations

Eurocom aims to eliminate energy bottlenecks in high performance laptops with a single AC adapter, offers 780-Watt power supply for the laptop industry. In the not-so-distant past, laptops and small form factor pc's were stuck in the middle ground of technology between smart phones and desktops when it came to portability, power and performance. Laptops were not as portable as smart phones and were heavily under-powered compared to common desktop PC's. As a result, laptops were not considered powerful enough to take on more intensive tasks and processes.

However, over the last half decade, laptops and small form factor PCs have closed the gap between desktop PCs in terms of power and performance. Due to many technological leaps and innovations over the years, laptops across different price points are able to come very close to matching the compute power of modern day desktop PCs. Laptops are now trusted with handling highly intensive tasks and are relied upon by users who benefit from having a less bulky and more portable computer that provides incredible performance on the go.

POWER-SUPPLaY Cyberattack Steals Data From Air-Gapped PC via Power Supply

It was only a few weeks ago when we reported that Dr. Mordechai Guri and his team had devised a new cyberattack known as Air-ViBeR which could use the vibrations of a PC's fans to steal data by regulating fan speed and recording the sounds on a nearby smartphone. This time Dr. Mordechai and his team have discovered a way to silently transmit data from the ultrasonic frequencies put out by a PC power supply they have dubbed this new attack POWER-SUPPLaY. The cyberattack involves a piece of malware that can alter system load by changing the CPU workload, this causes the PC power supply to change its ultrasonic frequencies which can be detected by a smartphone at a maximum distance of 5 m.

While this cyberattack is certainly technologically impressive, it is unlikely to ever be used out of anything but a Hollywood movie due to some fatal limitations. The attack requires the computer to be compromised and for a mobile device to be within listening distance for a prolonged time, the transmission rate of the attack is only 50 bits per second, or equivalent to about 22.5 kB per hour. With such a low transmission rate the only data that could be feasibly transmitted would be plain text at a rate of 10,000 words an hour.

Heat dissipation was handled by 1x 520mm and 2x 420mm radiators equipped with 10x 140mm RGB fans. Regardless of any specifics in terms of this water cooling loops actual performance, the system on display was certainly a sight to behold, which was made all the more noticeable by a massive show of ARGB lighting.

ASUS at Computex 2019: TUF Gaming VG27AQ Monitor, ROG STRIX 650 W Gold Power Supply

ASUS at Computex 2019 showcased a myriad of products - as is usual, for one of the foremost PC hardware manufacturers.
