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.

Zalman Boasts a New Line of PSUs with an Improved Design

The line of products manufactured by Zalman has been just replenished with a new series of power supply units, codenamed Zalman LX. The series is currently represented by two models of 500 W and 600 W power: ZM500-LX and ZM600-LX. Both units employ an improved Dual Forward Converter Circuit design that ensures reliable and efficient functioning. They are also equipped with a single +12V rail and show compatibility with Intel ATX12V 2.31 standard.



Zalman LX PSUs utilize a couple of PCI Express sockets (one 6-contact and one 6+2-contact) for the connection with graphics cards, securing the support of AMD CrossFireX and Nvidia SLI technologies. Cooling of all internal components is ascribed to a low-noise fan of 120 mm dimensional type. Its operation is automatically monitored by Smart Fan Control system that provides for the achievement of an optimal balance between its efficiency and noise level.


The new-comers support a large amount of protective options that promote for …

A Low-profile SilverStone NT08-115XP Cooling System

Nowadays compact systems are becoming more widespread, thus increasing the popularity of low-profile cooling systems. Specifically for such systems, the SilverStone Company has designed a low-profile air cooling system under the NT08-115XP codename.



NT08-115XP is announced to be an alternative to a standard cooler out of the CPU supply kit. The manufacturer states, that this cooling system is able to disseminate up to 65 W of heat, so it’s not effective enough to chill down powerfull CPUs.


The dimensions of the SilverStone NT08-115XP cooling system are the following: 101 x 101 x 33 mm. It possesses an aluminum heatsink with a copper center hub. The rotary speed of the 80 mm fan (10 mm thick) is in the range of 1200–3400 rpm, producing an air flow of 5.64–15.98 CFM (9.58–27.15 m3/hr) and a noise level of 16.5–28.98 dBA.


This specialty is compatible with Intel LGA 115x sockets only.
