Gigabyte Debuts with Mini-ITX Motherboard C1007UN-D

Gigabyte has officially introduced a new motherboard model C1007UN-D, developed in mini-ITX form-factor. As seen from the dimensions, the novice is intended to be employed within small-sized multimedia or industrial systems. Chipset Intel NM70 with the integrated two-core ULV processor Intel Celeron 1007U are considered to be the heart of the board. The CPU is cooled down by a compact active cooling system which involves an aluminum heatsink and a small fan.

Video subsystem is represented by an integrated graphics core that belongs to Intel HD Graphics series. The core runs at the nominal 350 MHz clock frequency, however this index might be dynamically increased up to 1000 MHz. Audio subsystem is realized by means of Realtek ALC887 controller that supports 7.1-channel sounding. Network facilities (LAN) are ensured due to a pair of gigabit controllers elaborated by Realtek.

To continue, memory subsystem consists of two DIMM slots which support up to 8 GB modules of DDR3-1333 …

Athlon II X2 221 and 198 Sempron X2 (FM1) appeared in the systems HP

It is well known that part of hybrid processors AMD for platform Socket FM1 have a non-working graphics power, so for their release the market brands Athlon and Sempron are used. Last fall, it was reported about the upcoming appearance in the sale of dual-core chip Athlon II X2 221 and 198 Sempron X2, but information about its actual release appeared only now. This hitch is not surprising, given the fact that these processors are still used only on computers in the collection of HP brand for the Chinese market.

Sempron X2 198 (2.5GHz) was seen in the budget desktop HP Pavilion p6-1152cx, p6-1159cx, p6-1230cx and p6-1231cx. This CPU includes two core architectures AMD K10.5, 2x512 KB cache of second level and dual-channel DDR3-1600. The TDP level is 65W.

Athlon II X2 221 clock frequency is 2.8 GHz. Other characteristics of processor are the same as in the lower Sempron X2 198. Both models support 64-bit code, virtualization, AMD-V and instructions even SSE4a. Athlon II X2 …

Corsair Introduces HXi 80Plus Platinum Power Supply Units

Corsair, a multi-profile American company, starts shipping new high-end PSUs of HXi series. The series currently combines three models with a totally modular design and the employment of Japanese electrolytic capacitors. Corsair HXi 750 W, Corsair HXi 850 W and Corsair HXi 1000 W models are distinguished by the highest efficiency of 91% that results in the conferment of 80Plus Platinum certificate.

Corsair HXi power supply units demonstrate compatibility with Intel Core CPUs (4th generation) and AMD’s latest APUs. The triple totally corresponds to ATX standard of the latest version. Cooling of all internal components is realized due to a low-noise 140 mm fan, based on a fluid-film bearing. Moreover, the implementation of Zero-RPM Fan Mode enables the blades to rotate only on the load pickup.

The units are furnished with a large set of protection tools, saving the layout from off-nominal conditions: voltage overloading, power overloading, input voltage overloading, …
