Foxconn has changed specifications of nettop Nano AT-5250

Due to a sudden «retirement» of the processor Intel Atom D2700, Foxconn company was forced to make adjustments in the equipment of its compact desktop PC Nano AT-5250 on Intel platform. As a result, in its specifications, instead of old CPU, a new dual-core chip Intel Atom D2550 with a frequency of 1.83 GHz has been implemented. As for the version of the nettop, built on a platform of AMD, it is worth noting that its specifications remain the same. It should be mentioned, that here a dual-core accelerated processor AMD E-450 is a “heart” with 1.65 GHz of clock frequency. Its integrated graphics is AMD Radeon HD 6320.



Mini-PC weighs 600 grams, is performed in a black hull with dimensions of 190 x 135 x 38 mm, and is passively cooled.


Among other specifications, its arsenal can boast:

— 4*USB 2.0 ports, 2*USB 3.0 ports, one DVI port and HDMI;

— One SO-DIMM slot for location up to 4 GB of RAM DDR3;

— Bays for installation of one 2.5-inch and one 1.8-inch …

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.

IBM, Intel, AMD, Cray, HPE and NVIDIA Have Been Awarded a Grant for Exaflop Supercomputer Development

The most effective supercomputer is launched in China today. The system, called Sunway TaihuLight, operates locally developed processors. The ultimate Sunway TaihuLight productivity is 125 petaflops. In 2020 China plans to generate the first system in the world with a capacity overcoming one exaflops. At present the USA stays behind, however American supercomputers’ energy performance is significantly higher.



The US Department of Energy has established a $258 million grant for cost effective exaflop supermachines construction. Six American companies (IBM, Intel, AMD, Cray, HPE and NVIDIA) won it. Now they are to create an architecture, able to consume 25–30 MW at one exaflop productiveness. Such a system’s deployment is to take place in 2021. Apart from funds committed, each member company of the Exascale Computing Project program will put up its own means, constituting around 40% of DOE’s funds. Thus, the project cost will increase to $430 mln. In return, developers …
