Intel Debuts with 5th Gen Core Mobile CPUs

Within the confines of CES 2015, Intel has officially introduced the fifth generation of Intel Core mobile processors. The lineup is targeting traditional laptops, ultrabooks, 2-in-1 devices, chrome-books, all-in-one items as well as mini-PCs. Besides, the company pin hopes for their CPUs to be additionally implemented within ‘All-inclusive Internet/Internet of Things’ embedded device concept.

New processors are designed according to 14-nm Intel Broadwell architecture. Due to the transition to a brand new technological process, the number of transistors has increased by 35%; herewith, the core area has reduced by 37%. Such innovative move provided for the enhancement of efficiency with simultaneous cut of power consumption. As a result, devices with the integrated Intel Core CPUs are called to run 1.5 hours longer in standalone mode.

The 5th generation lineup might boast the support for the latest codecs (HEVC, VP9, VP8), technologies (Intel WiDi 5.1, Intel RealSense …

Adata Announces a Couple of External High-Speed DashDrive Elite SSDs

Adata Technology, a Taiwanese manufacturer of RAM modules and diverse flash peripherals, announces the release of two new external solid-state drives that entered DashDrive Elite lineup. Codenamed SE720 and SE810, this couple positions itself quite differently: the first model is oriented at OS Windows users, while the second model is targeting Mac users. Despite diverse predestination, both drives are ready to offer high performance combined with extreme reliability.

Adata DashDrive Elite SE720 will be available in two flash-memory capacities: 128 GB and 256 GB. Each model features a thin, stainless metallic case with 8.9 mm depth and scratch-proof surface. These solid-state drives employ USB 3.0 interface and are powered via USB cable. They are known to support a built-in option of quick backup, which is enabled just by pressing one button. Additionally, SE720 drives have got a convenient LED indication system that notifies the user about the data transfer process.

EVGA GeForce GTX 660 Ti

Due to the unknown paparazzi the photos of the upcoming graphics card EVGA GeForce GTX 660 T leaked to the Internet. As it can be seen it is made almost on the reference design of Nvidia. The main differences of EVGA board from the reference — design of the casing of the cooling system, the logo on the fan housing and the clock frequency.

The video card is made on the printed circuit board on the PCI Express 3.0 x16 bus and is equipped with a proprietary dual-slot cooler of active type. Its «heart» is created on 28-nm chip with 1344 GK104 CUDA cores and advanced architecture Kepler. On board there is a 2048 MB of GDDR5 memory with 192-bit and a frequency of 6008 MHz. In fact, core graphics core frequency is 980 MHz, and accelerated by the NVIDIA GPU Boost function value is equal to 1023 MHz.

Dimensions of the cooler are the same as the GeForce GTX 670, but the circuit board is expected to be shorter. It is believed that the card uses the GPU GK104-325-A2 analogically to …
