Intel Broadwell CPUs will Get BGA Casing

The Internet community is energetically discussing unofficial info concerning the future Intel's Broadwell processors. According to the yet unacknowledged data, Intel will branch off from currently traditional LGA casings in favor to a more advanced BGA solution. At present all CPUs designed by Intel specifically for desktop platforms feature LGA (Land Grid Array) casings which allow the users to upgrade their systems without any hassle. On LGA implementation, the chip is housed within a socket and contacts with the motherboard. As a result, the user might change one chip to the other only with similar set of contacts.

The launch of Intel Broadwell processors, which is planned for 2014, might dramatically change the situation for customers. Most probably Intel will refuse from LGA casings and accommodate all new CPUs in BGA ones, marking the change of Haswell generation to the future Broadwell generation developed under 14 nm technological process.

Giada Presents a New Mini-PC for 'Demanding' System Environments

Giada Technology announces the launch of a flagship mini-PC model, codenamed D2305. This product might become an ideal solution as for home multimedia systems, so for those platforms that are quite demanding towards the performance, graphics and stability of operation. Indeed, D2305 is able to provide all above mentioned facilities plus really low power consumption.

Giada D2305 is based on Intel Ivy Bridge Core i5/i7 processor and employs Intel HM77 Express chipset. It is equipped with Nvidia GT640 GPU that secures an outstanding video performance and the support of Full HD graphics. The inventory involves 4GB of DDR3 memory, the volume of which can be extended to 8GB, a couple of mini-PCI Express slots, a single 4-in-1 card reader (MS Pro+MS+SD+MMC), and a single mSATA slot for the work with Intel SRT technology.

The interface panel is introduced by S/PDIF, eSATA, DVI and HDMI ports, as well as by two USB 2.0 and three USB 3.0 ports. Network facilities are represented by …

Welcome in MSI GTX 970 Gaming 4G Golden Edition Video Card

MSI has finally gladdened its gaming fans with a new ‘golden’ graphics card, entitled GTX 970 Gaming 4G Golden Edition. The model is based on Nvidia’s GM204-200-A1 GPU (Maxwell architecture) with 1644 CUDA cores, 104 TMUs, 64 ROPs, and 13 SMM units. Connection with visual devices might be realized via dual DVI ports, a single HDMI, and one DisplayPort.

Thanks to the support of MSI Gaming App, users are free to select one of the working modes: Silent, Gaming or OC. Each of them is differentiated by nominal and dynamic clock frequencies, Hereby, in Silent mode this adapter runs at 1051 MHz/1178 MHz (nominal/dynamic); Gaming mode provides for 1140 MHz/1279 MHz frequency, while OC allows increasing both indices up to 1165 MHz/1317 MHz correspondingly.

The integrated GPU cooperates with 4 GB of GDDR5 memory (256-bit interface, 224 Gb/sec throughput index). Its nominal clock frequency makes up 1751 MHZ, but its efficient index rises up to 7010 MHz.
