Intel Makes a Surprise Launch of Ivy Bridge Processors

The release of the 4th generation Intel Haswell processors made a real stir last week. This turmoil left the launch of several Intel Ivy Bridge processors practically unnoticed. How strange as it might seem, but Intel keeps on supplying its 3rd generation products to comply with the needs of the vast majority of customers. Hence, a set of new CPUs consists of: five Intel Pentium models (G2140, G2120T, G2030T, G2030), three Intel Core models (i3-3245, i3-3250, i3-3250T), and a single Intel Celeron G470 model.



Each Intel Pentium processor features two cores and 3 MB of cache-memory. The nominal clock frequencies fluctuate within the measures of 2.6-3.3 GHz, depending on the model. All the models within the line are equipped with Intel HD graphics core. Intel Pentium G2030T and G2030 support two-channel DDR3 modules with up to 1333 MHz frequency, while their companions – Intel Pentium G2140 and G2120T – support DDR3-1600 MHz modules.

MSI Offers H87I AC Motherboard for Demanding PC Builders

MSI has made a pleasing presentation for all builders and enthusiasts who would like to create a small-sized but highly efficient gaming or multimedia system. The MSI H87I AC is designed in mini-ITX form-factor, featuring 170x170 mm dimensions only. The core of the board is Intel H87 Express chipset that supports all Haswell CPUs with LGA1150 socket. According to the latest data, the model is already available in the European market for approximately 102 EUR.



The H87I AC accommodates two DIMM slots, available for the incorporation of DDR3 modules with the maximal frequency of 1600 MHz. The latter might work in a two-channel mode and reach 16 GB capacity. Disk subsystem is organized by means of four SATA III 6 Gb/sec ports, which allow for the creation of diverse RAID configurations (i.e. 0, 1, 5, 10, AHCI).


Expansion is realized due to a single PCI-e 3.0 x16 connector and one mini-PCI-e (half-size) connector for network modules. Network abilities are supported by one …

Deepcool is preparing a new cooler with heat pipes

Deepcool production company of inexpensive and quite efficient cooling systems has provided a sample of CPU cooler — Big Frost (tentative codename), which is an extension of current Frostwin model. Previous model has 4 sintered powder heatpipes, which conduct heat from the processor to protect it from overheating. Also, like a new model, it has 120mm fans.



New model has a simple design, but strict, almost «standard», forms will not prevent it from showing a decent performance. It works with less noise and performs an effective cooling. Big Frost consists of a nickel-plated copper base with a miniature auxiliary radiator, six U-shaped copper heatpipes, each of 6 mm in diameter, and two sections of aluminium plates of similar thickness. Pre-installed fans are running at different speeds. One turns with intensity of 1300 r / min (22.6 dB noise), the other — in the range from 900 to 1500 rev / min (21,4-32,1 dB).
