Noctua NF-S12A: High-End Fans for Customers with No Financial Constraints

Fans from Noctua have been enjoying great popularity among customers with no financial constraints for a long time already. Austrian manufacturer gets used to offer only qualitative and exclusive products, ensuring the maximal operational effect. Its new fan models, combined under a single codename NF-S12A, are a bright evidence of quality and performance. The series has been elaborated with each and every detail in consideration, thus the price tag is corresponding: $22.

Noctua NF-S12A series belongs to the third generation of PC chassis fans. Developed in 120 mm dimensions, the series is introduced by three models: ULN 600/800 RPM, PWM 300-1200 RPM, and FLX 700/900/1200 RPM. All three fans employ a self-stabilizing oil bearing SSO2 as the basis. Its assumed time of foolproof work is estimated as 150 thousand hours.

Their framework is distinguished by a 7-blade impeller with 'drops' on vanes; these drops are called to prevent the fans' cessation on slow operation. The …

Promising Speed Forecasts for AMD Radeon 8000 Sea Islands

AMD is continuing its work on the new GPU generation codenamed ‘Sea Islands’. The new series is prognosticated to be released in the coming winter. All the products with this GPU will be branded Radeon 8000. AMD manufacturers claim that their new graphic processing units will be 40% more efficient due to the implemented advanced technologies. There is not so much news about the future GPU architecture, although cardinal changes are barely possible.

Sea Islands chips will be equipped with 5.1 billion transistors as compared with the current 4.3 billion items applied in the products. This augmentation will facilitate the increment of efficiency. The chips will be developed according to the already tried-and-proven 28 nm technological requirements. The increase of transistors is not as large due to the adherence to the ascribed norms. It should be underlined that the implementation of the old technologies does not imply the considerable warming up of the chips; the developments …
