ECS Develops Haswell-Compatible Motherboard Z87H3-A2X Extreme

At the cusp of an official release of Intel’s fourth generation processors each hardware designer tries to elaborate new Haswell-compatible components. Motherboard manufacturers are probably the ones to introduce the lion’s share of such products. ECS is not an exception. According to the data provided by a reputable source, ECS is soon going to release its newest prime-class board codenamed Z87H3-A2X Extreme. The first meeting with the new-comer is planned within the boundaries of Computex 2013 exhibition taking place in June.

As seen from the codename, ECS Z87H3-A2X Extreme is based on Intel Z87 Express chipset covered by a black-and-red heatsink. The model employs full-sized printed circuit board, Socket LGA1150, and 12-phase VRM for CPU power supply with gold-plate solid-state capacitors. Power subsystem elements are cooled down by a voluminous CoolTech V heatsink. This heatsink is connected with a chipset one by means of a nickel-plated copper heat pipe.

Intel to Take Care about Power-Efficiency of Ivy Bridge Processors

The rising competition between the two giants in the manufacture of processing units, Intel and AMD, makes each of the two invent ever newer technologies and implement them in their products. The attempts to dominate in the market and win as many consumers usually develop into brand new approaches and brand new advanced facilities.

In this light, Intel is going to upgrade its Ivy Bridge processors to make them more power-efficient. But power-efficiency does not imply that processing units will show less performance; quite the contrary, the manufacturer is willing to combine an utmost performance with the maximal power efficiency level.

Currently, the most power-saving processors of Ivy Bridge generation can be found in mobile devices on Windows platform and in Apple MacBook Air devices. Their TDP level is recorded at 17W. As appears from the above mentioned, the TDP level in upgraded Ivy Bridge processors will be lower than 17W, though the developers do not voice the margin …

Nanoxia Launches a New Low-Noise Deep Silence 6 PC Case

Nanoxia, a famous developer of PC hardware components from Germany, has just started the sales of its newest elaboration – Deep Silence 6 case. The new-comer is designed in midi-tower form-factor, featuring 644x250x655 mm dimensions. Its major privilege is practically noiseless operation that has been achieved due to the employment of dedicated noise-attenuating materials. Moreover, in order to reduce the vibrations, the company employed rubber inlets in PSU and drive bays site localizations, as long as special soft feet on the chassis.

Nanoxia Deep Silence 6 comes in two framework variations: with absolutely blind side panel and with a transparent window of one of the sides. Besides, the customers are able to choose between three available color variations – white, black and gray – to fully satisfy their needs in design. The frontal panel of all the modifications is covered by two lids; the lower lid is larger in dimensions than the top one.
