Casio Graph 90+E calculator announced
« on: January 30, 2017, 06:40:50 pm »
A few weeks ago, Casio unveiled their upcoming successor to the fx-CG10/20 calculators: The fx-CG50. Now they have just unveiled its French counterpart: the Graph 90+E:



Casio has thus reverted back to their old ways of renaming their calculators for the France market, with only the Classpad series and the original PRIZM models not being renamed (although the fx-CG10 was released as the fx-CG20 in all of Europe, with extra image capabilities):

fx-7400G: Graph 20
fx-9750G: Graph 30
fx-9750G PLUS: Graph 35+ (French model has more RAM)
fx-9750gII: Graph 35+ USB
CFX-9850G: Graph 60
CFX-9950G: Graph 65
fx-9860g: Graph 85
fx-9860g SD: Graph 85 SD
fx-9860gII: Graph 75
fx-9860gII SD: Graph 95
Algebra FX 2.0: Graph 100

It is widely speculated from the name that this new calculator will have an exam mode or restrictions allowing its use in French exams after the 2018 rule changes, unlike the fx-CG20, which lacked one despite OS updates.


Regarding the technical specifications of both the Casio fx-CG50 and Graph 90+E, it appears that they will feature the following:

61 KB of user RAM
16 MB of Flash
Add-in support (that can be installed by the user, but it's unclear if extra protections against third-party add-ins have been added)
4xAAA batteries required
USB and 3-pin cable support

Exact CPU specs are unknown, but the info page states something about high-speed calculations. It is unknown if any improvements were done in terms of LCD speed and especially BASIC drawing commands, which are notorious for being incredibly slow on the fx-CG10/20. The MSRP is 130 euros, approximately $30 higher than its American counterpart.

I personally probably won't buy it unless there are significant improvements in BASIC speed or if it's very popular. Even if it meets one of those criterias I would probably get the fx-CG50 instead, since it's cheaper. That said, regarding the technical specs it's still not 100% certain they are accurate, as some sites might have just copy/pasted the fx-CG10/20 specs.

Well, I got 29 calcs and have done calc stuff for 15 years, and since my biggest purchase priorities are elsewhere lately, I might even actually sell some calcs rather than buying new ones. :P Although ideally, I would like to at least keep the classics and as many new color ones as possible (other than the Classpad II). We never know what can happen, though, such as a big discount (I remember seeing the PRIZM for $100 CAD once)


In any case, if you ever do C or BASIC, I'm sure both will be similar to older models, so you will most likely be able to ask for help on the forums from those using other Casio calcs :)
