Intel Core i7 CPUs are Already On Sale

Intel launched much talked-about CPU series of Broadwell-E generation, entitled Core i7. The items are based on 14-nm microarchitecture, targeting Socket LGA2011-v3 platforms. In order to integrate them within current lineup of mainboards on Intel X99 chipset, it’s vital to update BIOS.



The series includes 4 processors: a pair of 6-core, one 8-core, and one 10-core units. All of them support Hyper-Threading technology and feature 140 W TDP. Besides, the new-comers employ DDR4 controller that supports DDR4-2400 MHz memory modules.


CPU Intel Core i7-6800K houses 28 PCI Express rails. Thus, it does not support the creation of such graphics configurations as Nvidia SLI or AMD CrossFireX (x16+x16). The unit consists of 6 cores & 12 channels, running at 3.4/3.6 GHz clock frequency. It also accommodates 15 MB of L3 cache. Thus, the price tag makes up $434.


Intel Core i7-6850K features 6 cores, 12 streams & 15 MB cache. It operates at 3.6/3.8 GHz frequency. The price tag …

AMD Unveils Some Strategic Plans for 2013



Not so long ago AMD held a private presentation for investors and partners dedicated to the strategic plans for 2013. Its PDF-version has recently appeared online and immediately called attention of all interested parties. The most unexpected news concerned the long-awaited Steamroller micro-architecture. According to AMD, the debut of an advanced architecture will be accomplished in the current year, not in 2014 as it was informed earlier. Steamroller will be incorporated into an updated series of AMD Opteron server processors which are to ensure an improved efficiency level on parallel data processing operations.


The other promising piece of news touches upon the launch of a new APU series already this year: AMD Kabini and AMD Temash. Kabini is going to replace Brazos platform employed in small-sized multimedia systems and other hand portable solutions. In its turn, Temash is going to be implemented into highly-efficient tablet PCs, running under Windows 8 OS platform.

SilentiumPC Offers a Budgetary Fortis 2 XE1226 CPU Cooler

SilentiumPC, a comparatively ‘fresh’ player in the cooling market, has recently introduced a new CPU cooler for budget-oriented customers. Codenamed Fortis 2 XE1226, it features 130x95x155 mm dimensions and weighs 880 g. It is intended to support the majority of modern platforms, including Intel LGA 775/1366/2011/115x and AMD FM1/FM2/AM2/AM2+/AM3/AM3+.



The model is all about two-section aluminum heatspreader with a copper polished base, six U-shape heatpipes (6 mm each), and a single 120 mm fan DF12025. The latter is based on a hydraulic bearing and supports PWM technology. It is able to alter speed from the minimal 500 RPM to the maximal 1500 RPM. Herein, the ultimate noise level does not go beyond 22 dBA.


The DF12025 fan requires 12V rail and 0.2A current to be powered via 4-pin PWM connector. On the maximal rotational speed it produces 65 CFM airflow. Besides, testing results prove that this fan is estimated for about 50.000 hours of fail-proof operation.
