Intel Unveils Power-Saving Silvermont Architecture

Intel has just unveiled its new advanced working out: power-saving and high-efficient microarchitecture codenamed Silvermont. According to Intel, this architecture is primarily targeting devices with low power consumption and can embrace a vast production segment, starting from smartphones and finishing with datacenters. Silvermont is ready to demonstrate a threefold increase of performance and fivefold decrease of power consumption (with preservation of erstwhile efficiency), if compared with the current generation of Intel Atom cores.

Intel Silvermont has been elaborated in compliance with the norms of 22 nm technological process with the implementation of 3-D Tri-Gate transistors. The employment of new progressive techniques promotes for enhancing the operation speed and reducing energy demand of products which use Silvermont as the basis. Multi-core architecture with the support of up to eight cores ensures higher bandwidth, lower latency and more efficient operation on …

Gigabyte to Release a New Mini-ITX GA-J1800N-D2H Motherboard

Gigabyte is going to release its latest elaboration – mini-ITX motherboard, codenamed GA-J1800N-D2H. The model is peculiar by the availability of an integrated two-core Intel Celeron J1800 CPU that runs at 2.4/2.5 GHz. In its turn, this processor boasts only 10 TDP level, so it might be efficiently cooled by a single aluminum heatsink, without fans. Upon the whole, the board is targeting entry-level desktop systems and comes to the market at the price tag of $60.

Gigabyte GA-J1800N-D2H accommodates two SO-DIMM slots, ready to house DDR3-1333 MHz memory modules with the maximal capacity of 8 GB. The connection of optical drives and other storage solutions is realized via two SATA II 3 Gb/sec ports. Expansion facilities are not so versatile but quite appropriate for a small-sized board: one PCI Express 2.0 x1 slot and one mini-PCI Express slot; the latter is intended for the connection of Wi-Fi module.

To continue, audio subsystem traditionally operates by means of Realtek …

SilverStone Debuts with SX700-LPT Power Supply Unit

SilverStone is readying to launch a powerful 700-watt PSU, entitled SX700-LPT. The new-comer boasts 80Plus Platinum certificate, since its efficiency level might reach 94%. The model is developed in SFX-L form-factor and supports Intel ATX 12V 2.4 standard. SilverStone has already listed the unit on its official site; thus, customers might expect the market launch in the nearest future.

SilverStone SX700-LPT employs a single +12V rail with the maximal output capability of 58.4 A. This power supply unit is able to operate within 90-264 V range at the peak power index of 750 W. If there is a need, it’s possible to use the entire power stock via +12V bus, rather than distributing it via +3.3 V or +5 V rails.

The model comes with a modular cable system. The inventory includes connectors for the connection of 9 SATA devices as well as 4 videocards with an additional 6+2-pin PCI-e connector. The unit is fitted with all necessary protection mechanisms, entailing SCP, OPP, OPT, …
