Today's topics include Dell's new PowerEdge servers for SMBs, HP's enterprise-ready ZBook mobile workstations, Qualcomm's latest mobile processor and ARM's Cortex A-35 SoC for low-cost smartphones.

Dell is rounding out its 13th generation PowerEdge server portfolio with new single-socket rack and tower systems aimed at smaller businesses and remote offices.

The company is bringing better performance and manageability to the four new systems with the latest Intel processors, DDR4 memory and OpenManage software that Intel officials said will make it easier for users to deploy and run these servers.

Such capabilities are important for the growing number of small to midsize businesses that have computing needs similar to larger companies, but fewer IT management and financial resources.

Hewlett-Packard introduced four enterprise-ready ZBook mobile workstations in New York City on Nov. 11. This included an all-new HP ZBook Studio G3, which is a laptop with a 15.6-inch screen that can be configured with available Intel Xeon quad-core processors and an optional 4K DreamColor display for high performance on the go.

The other machines are new third-generation models in the ZBook family—the ZBook 15, the ZBook 15u and the ZBook 17, which have updated packaging, performance and capabilities for a wide variety of business users.

Qualcomm officials have unveiled the company's newest mobile processor, a product they hope will provide a strong ending to what has been to this point a difficult year for the mobile chip maker.  

At a press event Nov. 10 in New York City, Qualcomm executives officially announced the much-anticipated Snapdragon 820 system-on-a-chip, which is expected to power many of the high-end smartphones that will hit the market starting next year. Some of these will likely be announced at the upcoming 2016 Consumer Electronics Show at Las Vegas in January.

ARM, which already owns the bulk of the global smartphone market, is putting its focus on emerging markets like Brazil, India and China with the introduction of a low-power chip that offers 64-bit processing capabilities while driving down power consumption.

At the ARM TechCon 2015 show in Santa Clara on Nov. 10, CTO Mike Muller announced the Cortex-A35, the first of what company officials said will be a family of low-power, highly-efficient 64-bit chips aimed at smartphones and other mobile devices.
