Hi, I am new here My name is "Just A Noob Here " but you can call me "Nooblette".

Today I was searching on google the fx-7400 GII and I found an image of a calculator fx-7400 GII but design was diffrent, It was gray blue with more rectangular shape and "diamond" like navigating button.

What was off I was searching on casio graph models and didn't found this version one.

It is interesting for me if only design was changed or technical details like the processor and ram size have changed?
More interests me what can this calculator do I recently saw new "monochrome" models have Build in Micro-python, is it possible that this new one has Python installed?

As a fx-7400 GII user i know that this model is a bit limited in functions has less than it's relatives. Does the new one have all functions like the others?


Simply put my question :

Is the new version better or it's the same thing?


Thanks.

Nooblette

Hi Nooblette

 

Yes, Casio recently released the new generation of the monochrome calculator (7400, 9750, 9860) this year and the calculator you looked up is fx-7400GIII.

 

It is interesting for me if only design was changed or technical details like the processor and ram size have changed?
More interests me what can this calculator do I recently saw new "monochrome" models have Build in Micro-python, is it possible that this new one has Python installed?

As a fx-7400 GII user i know that this model is a bit limited in functions has less than it's relatives. Does the new one have all functions like the others?

 

Unfortunately, quite nothing, besides the design is united with CG50 and the OS version has been upgraded to 3.20. Also, fx-7400GIII won't have Python unlike fx-9750GIII/fx-9860GIII.

Processor is still SH4A across all of the new generation and RAM size are the same as before in their own.

Overall, IMO fx-7400GIII is "new design but old body".

 

I recommended you buy fx-9750GIII/fx-9860GIII. Unlike before, Casio located 9750 series as the flagship models that is same as fx-9860GIII, with only some differences on Exam Mode and math display to target at some public examinations. Choose one of them depending on exams you need to attempt. The changes are practical such as doubling the CPU speed (29MHz->59MHz), python support (OS3.21) and ability to connect to the pc using usb directly without FA-124 same as CG50. However, neither of them has backlight.

 

Cheers

Hi, CalcLoverHK!
Wow thanks so much for the info!
:D
I didn't noticed that there is 3 I's on calculator.

Just for little question, 7400 GII has 29 - 30 MHz right?

Thanks so much.

Nooblette.

@Nooblette:
You are welcome. Also enjoy your stay here (although this forum is quite inactive now imo, I joined here in June 2019. The only active threads here are the non-programmable calcs hacks and the C.Basic)

Is this a really good calculator? It can cost less than one Cuban cigar, which I use every day along with expensive classic rum. Judging by the price - this is another deception from CASIO. I bought the fx-9750g+/9850g+/gc+ and other calculators in a new design many years ago. This turned out to be the same smelly shit (a manufacturing defect for sale) as the original fx-9750g+/9850g+/gc+. CASIO did not fix the old bugs, but sold us this garbage in a new package.
<<I recommended you buy fx-9750GIII/fx-9860GIII>
9860giii can't exchange programs with my favorite 7400g/g calculators+/9750/9850/9970 etc. There are no new achievements. And this cheap noncondition is presented to us as a new calculator. Although the quality of the display there is worse than in similar samples of the mid-1990. We are constantly deceived by TI, HP, CASIO, SHARP. I have never received any honest information from the manufacturer in the last 30 years.

@Hlib2:
Well it's how Casio's and also other calcs manufacturers' market strategies works. I sometimes hate the fact that Casio uses old technologies (Still SH-based cpu with crappy speed, same ram/rom/display and similar operation etc.) all the time. The changes I can call them as revolutionary for the calcs are the colour display product (CG10/20) that was released back in 2011. Since then, Casio's strategy has been becoming more uninteresting.
