Processors Intel Haswell to Rival Accelerator NVIDIA Tesla

Intel Corporation has the intentions to introduce DDR4 memory into their server processors of Haswell series. The launch of such technological approach is planned for the 2014, however the developments in this sphere have already started. Intel’s server solutions will become a part of Grantley platform and the samples of their new series will allegedly be announced next autumn. The preview of new processors makes it clear that some of the chips will be distinguished by the increased heat generation performance which will reach 160 W.

Hence, 16-core processors Haswell-EP will rival parallel computing accelerator NVIDIA Tesla but not AMD server solutions. Intel is going to provide various working frequency options and options with different number of active cores. At the same time, TDP will fluctuate within ranges of 160, 145, 135, and 120 W. In its turn, accelerator NVIDIA Tesla, which is based on GK110 processor, consumes approximately 300 W.

In accordance with the …

AOC Outs Frameless Q2781PQ Monitor

The majority of customers place a priority on functionality of the monitor rather than its design. AOC Q2781PQ is a solution that combines both: state-of-the-art performance & an extraordinary design. The greenhorn is differentiated by an ultrathin frame, giving the impression of frameless construction. The display rests upon an asymmetric stand that provides for a better ergonomics, due to tilt, pivot & swivel adjustments.

The 27-inch AOC Q2781PQ monitor is based on AH-IPS panel which ensures 16:9 aspect ratio as well as 2560x1440 resolution (QHD) on 60 Hz refresh rate. The panel features 4 ms response time, the top brightness index of 350 cd/m2, the widest viewing angles (178 degrees in both aspects), and 100% coverage of RGB environment.

The model is known to support Flicker-Free technology that adjusts brightness level by means of backlight, securing flicker-free imaging on the screen. The monitor boasts 1000:1 static & 50M:1 dynamic contrast ratio. The amount of …

SilverStone Debuts with SST-ST30SF Power Supply

SilverStone Technology has recently introduced its newest SFX power supply unit. Codenamed SST-ST30SF, it features 125x100x63.5 mm dimensions and weighs 800 g only. The unit is estimated for 300 W power and is capable to demonstrate more than 81% efficiency in 230 V networks. High efficiency level allowed the model to gain 80Plus Bronze certificate.

The most uncommon feature ascribed to SST-ST30SF is that it can operate in passive mode if thermal conditions allow. The unit is equipped with a fan of 80 mm dimensional type; it starts rotating only when the surrounding temperature reaches 55 degrees. This promotes for a considerable power reduction and practically silent work when the fan gets disabled. An average noise level on active operation makes up 18 dB.

SilverStone furnishes the new entry with a single +12V rail, estimated for 22 A current. In its turn, +3.3V rail is estimated for 21 A current, while +5V rail – for 20 A current. It should be noted that this unit …
