Adata Offers Premier Pro SP920 Drive for Multimedia Data

Adata Technology enters into the market with a new series of SSDs, codenamed Premier Pro SP920. Initially, the customers will be able to acquire only two models of 128 GB and 256 GB capacity, though the manufacturer promises to enlarge the line later on with more spacious drives of 512 GB and 1 TB capacity. All the models feature a conventional 2.5-inch form-factor and are based on Marvell controller, accompanied by multi-level MLC NAND flash-memory.



Solid-state drives Adata Premier Pro SP920 employ SATA III 6 Gb/sec interface. Their design is peculiar by 7 mm depth, thus it will be possible to incorporate them into ultra-slim devices. The availability of a dedicated adapter, as well as a special mounting set, facilitates their installation into the 3.5-inch bays.


In keeping with the developers, these drives are primarily intended to work for the needs of multimedia data, as far as they ensure marvelous performance during Read/Write operations. Therefore, SP920 (depending …

Haswell processors for laptops will consume up to 57 W, desktop - up to 100

Intel provides with three graphics levels: GT1, GT2 and GT3. Desktop processors won’t receive graphics performance higher than GT2, but mobile processors will be able to boast of with GT3 class. Support of PCI Express 3.0 for Haswell processors will be quite usual characteristics, but at the memory controller little progress is seen — yet provides dual-channel DDR3-1600.



By energy consumption Haswell desktop versions will be divided into models with values of 35, 45, 65 and 95 watts of TDP level. For mobile processors the values are ​​37, 47 and 57 W. Finally, ultra book processors with built-in system logic will be filled by TDP level not more than 15 watts. It is assumed that this will enable them, among other things, be in standby mode up to 10 days without charge.


The desire of Intel to compete with AMD in terms of performance integrated in graphics processor, will add some work to companies producing cooling systems for laptops. The developers report about …

Arctic Cooling Intros Two Modifications of Freezer CPU Cooler

Arctic Cooling AG, a well-known Swiss developer of cooling solutions, has recently introduced its newest CPU cooler, Freezer, in two modifications: i11 and A11. Both versions have got tower-like framework, featuring 108x90x130 mm dimensions. The Freezer i11 is compatible with Intel LGA 2011/1156/1155/1150 socket platforms, whereas its companion is intended for AMD Socket FM1, FM2, AM3, AM3+, AM2, and AM2+. To say more, this pair is able to cool down the ‘blaze’ of CPUs with 150 W TDP.



Arctic Freezer i11/A11 consists of an aluminum heatspreader with forty-five plates, three U-shape copper heatpipes, and one 92 mm fan. The heatpipes are thought to support direct contact technology that dramatically improves heat transfer process.


The implemented fan is developed on a fluid dynamic bearing and is equipped with a PWM controller. The latter assures that the blades could change their rotational speed within the ranges from 500 RPM to 2000 RPM. Herein, the maximal airflow …
