ASUS Unveils Ultra-Thin ZenBook Pro 15 With Core i9, 4K Display, GTX 1050

Recently, Asus unveiled this week the ZenBook Pro 15, an ultra-thin notebook with 18.9mm thick and weighs only 1.86kg, but hardware tailored for professionals: in its most expensive version, it comes with a core processor i9-8950HK (six-core) and a factory-calibrated 15.6-inch 4K IPS screen for increased colour accuracy.

ASUS Unveils Ultra-Thin ZenBook Pro 15 With Core i9, 4K Display, GTX 1050

Asus unveiled this week the ZenBook Pro 15, an ultra-thin notebook with 18.9mm thick and weighs only 1.86kg, but hardware tailored for professionals: in its most expensive version, it comes with a core processor i9-8950HK (six-core) and a factory-calibrated 15.6-inch 4K IPS screen for increased colour accuracy.

Even because of the thin thickness, you can not expect a notebook aimed at more demanding gamers: the GPU is a GeForce GTX 1050 with 4 GB of GDDR5 memory. But the rest of the hardware includes 8 or 16 GB of 2400MHz DDR4 RAM and PCIe (NVMe) SSDs with up to 1TB of capacity. The battery of 71Wh, according to Asus, has a battery life of up to 9.5 hours and takes 49 minutes to go from 0 to 60%.

The highlight appears to be the screen. As reported by AnandTech, the most expensive ZenBook Pro 15 features an IPS LCD multitouch panel (10 points) with a resolution of 3840×2160 pixels that covers 100% of the AdobeRGB colour spectrum.

Moreover, it is factory calibrated to display a DeltaE ≤ 2, to reproduce colours more accurately. There is also a less expensive version with Full HD resolution, 100% sRGB coverage and DeltaE ≤ 3.

Curiously, the ZenBook Pro 15 even has ports: two USB-C (with Thunderbolt 3 and DisplayPort), two USB-A, An HDMI, microSD card reader and 3.5 mm headphone jack. On wireless connections, there is Wi-Fi 802.11ac with transfer rates up to 1.73 Gb/s and Bluetooth 5.0. Moreover, to fully complete the set a fingerprint reader for Windows Hello and speakers from Harman Kardon also present.

The Asus has not yet informed the ZenBook Pro 15 prices – but do not expect anything much different than what the tech giant Apple charge for a MacBook Pro 15.

What is the difference between a direct and an indirect address instruction ?

Direct addressing means the instruction refers directly to the address being accessed. That is, the instruction encoding itself contains the address of the location. Depending on the instruction set, it may also allow computing a small index relative to the address. When used that way, you can think of that as a direct-indexed mode. (Note: Some processors call ‘direct’ mode ‘absolute’, such as the 6502.)

Indirect addressing uses an address held in a register or other location to determine what memory location to read or write. The idea here is that the instruction itself isn’t directly telling you the address to access, but rather indirectly telling the CPU where to find that address. The processor may also allow you to add a small offset to the indirect address, giving an indirect-indexed addressing mode.

What is ASP.NET? and it's ARCHITECTURE

What is ASP.Net?ASP.Net is a web development platform provided by Microsoft. It is used for creating web-based applications. ASP.Net was first released in the year 2002.
The first version of ASP.Net deployed was 1.0. The most recent version of ASP.Net is version 4.6. ASP.Net is designed to work with the HTTP protocol. This is the standard protocol used across all web applications.

ASP.Net applications can also be written in a variety of .Net languages. These include C#, VB.Net, and J#. In this chapter, you will see some basic fundamental of the .Net framework.

The full form of ASP is Active Server Pages, and .NET is Network Enabled Technologies.

What Is Defensive Programming ?

Defensive programming is a form of defensive design intended to ensure the continuing function of a piece of software under unforeseen circumstances. Defensive programming practices are often used where high availability, safety or security is needed. – WikiPedia


Introduction Defensive programming is a form of defensive design intended to ensure the continuing function of a piece of software under under unforeseen circumstances. Defensive programming practices are often used where high availability, safety or security is needed.
Advantages Defensive programming is an approach to improve software and source code, in terms of:
General qualityMaking the source code comprehensibleMaking the software behave in a predictable mannerDrawback Overly defensive programming, however, may safeguard against errors that will never be encountered, thus incurring run-time and maintenance costs. There is also the risk that the code traps or prevents too many exceptions, potentially resulting i…
