Cougar has recently introduced a new power-saving PSU series codenamed GX-S. The series includes three high-efficiency models which meet the requirements of 80Plus Gold standard: GX-S 400W, GX-S 500W and GX-S 600W. Cougar promises that the products will be available in free sale already in early April. All three PSUs are housed in a black casing with golden logo and accommodate high-quality Japanese capacitors that ensure utmost performance and reliability.



Cougar GX-S series employs LLC technologies which are called to reduce the power loss on Off/On activities. The models also feature a power-saving framework to comply with Eco-Friendly EuP, ErP Lot6 and Energy Star 5.0 standards. Hence, the units consume less than 0.9W in ‘Off’ mode. Besides, GX-S units absolutely meet ATX12V specifications, support all novel (and future!) platforms on the basis of multi-core processors, as well as several graphics adapters with PCI-e 2.0 interface and 8-pin PCI-e connectors.

Intel Compute Stick With Intel Apollo Lake CPU

In the year of 2015 the Intel Company announced a mini PC with a completely new layout, named Intel Compute Stick. According to its dimensions it resembles a mobile 3G adapter or a slightly enlarged typical flash drive, though its functionality lets us consider this sample to be a fully-featured PC, which only needs to be connected to the monitor or TV-set through the HDMI interface.



At first the Intel Company and its partners released their versions with Intel Bay Trail CPUs, being later exchanged by the Intel Cherry Trail series solutions. In 2016 even more powerful models with Intel Core m3 and Intel Core m5 (Intel Skylake) CPUs appeared. One can expect, that in the second quarter of 2017 the Intel Compute Stick manufacturers will use the Intel Apollo Lake series chips.


At least two new Intel Compute Stick versions are to be released. The first model will feature 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of ROM eMMC memory and the pre-set 64-bit Windows 10 Home OS. The second version will …

Intel Broadwell CPUs will Get BGA Casing

The Internet community is energetically discussing unofficial info concerning the future Intel's Broadwell processors. According to the yet unacknowledged data, Intel will branch off from currently traditional LGA casings in favor to a more advanced BGA solution. At present all CPUs designed by Intel specifically for desktop platforms feature LGA (Land Grid Array) casings which allow the users to upgrade their systems without any hassle. On LGA implementation, the chip is housed within a socket and contacts with the motherboard. As a result, the user might change one chip to the other only with similar set of contacts.



The launch of Intel Broadwell processors, which is planned for 2014, might dramatically change the situation for customers. Most probably Intel will refuse from LGA casings and accommodate all new CPUs in BGA ones, marking the change of Haswell generation to the future Broadwell generation developed under 14 nm technological process. BGA (Ball Grid Array) …
