Cooler Master Boasts V1200 Platinum Power Supply

Cooler Master is glad to introduce a new proprietary power supply unit with 80Plus Platinum certificate. Entitled V1200 Platinum, the model boasts 93% efficiency that promotes for the ‘energizing’ of the most demanding system components. Besides, efficiency index can’t be less than 0.95 on 50% loading. This puts the model out of the competition with 7-year’s warranty. All customers are able to acquire this PSU for 259 EUR.

Cooler Master V1200 Platinum features a single +12V durable rail (estimated for 100 A loading) and a totally modular cabling system. The layout accommodates heat-resistant Japanese capacitors (solid-state and electrolytic), LP9 transformer, double EMI filter, Active PFC, as well as aluminum heatspreaders.

The PSU facilities do not limit themselves by hardware only, offering 4-way SLI and CrossFireX configurations support. In order to guarantee graphics sustainability, the manufacturer equips the PSU with twelve PCI Express 6+2 cables. In …

HGST Announces Corporate-Class Ultrastar C10K1800 Hard Drives

Despite the emergence of ultra-fast and voluminous SSD devices, data processing centers still require classical storage solutions. Hence, HGST, an affiliate company of Western Digital, decided to comply with the corporate demands by introducing budgetary hard drives entitled Ultrastar C10K1800. The new-comers are targeting exactly DPC-systems which are in need of high performance combined with fail-safe behavior.

HGST Ultrastar C10K1800 drives feature 2.5-inch form-factor and come in diverse capacity variations (from 300 GB to 1.8 TB). The models employ SAS interface with 12 Gb/sec throughput. It should be noted that designers involved the minimal amount of plates on the maximal possible tape density. The latter are thought to rotate with 10.520 RPM.

The implementation of only few plates provides for the reduction of power consumption; this is supposed to be a great benefit since the drives are estimated for a durable 24/7 operation. Thus, an average power consumption …

Intel Makes an Agreement with ASML to Accelerate 450 mm Wafer Development

The past several days were marked by the Intel's announcement about the celebration of a contract with ASML company. Such step has been dictated by the company's intentions to invest into the development of 450 mm wafers and EUV technologies. In accordance with the preliminary estimates, the general investment rate will reach $4.1 billion. The major target of the cooperation is to decrease the term of lithography equipment commissioning by two years, and stimulate the development of technologies targeted at 450 mm wafers. The implementation of the predesigned plans will allow the manufacturers of semiconductor components to receive a range of benefits, among which is the cut of expenses.

With the purpose to facilitate in the solution of this technological problem, Intel will take part in a dedicated program. This program includes financial backup of scientific and research projects, as well as, equity investing campaigns in ASML.

The initial stage of this program …
