Intel is preparing a quad-core Core i7-3740QM, 3840QM and 3940XM

In late September — early October, Intel plans to update the lineup of Core i7 processors on the cores generation Ivy Bridge (22 nm). It is expected that within a few months users will witness the announcement of the CPU for laptops Core i7-3740QM, 3840QM and 3940XM, which will replace released in April 3720QM, 3820QM and 3920XM, respectively.

According to the information from web resources, the trio will receive an increase of 100 MHz from the predecessors, retaining the previous TDP and probably the recommended price. A common feature of the new processors is four x86-cores that handle data in 8 threads (Hyper-Threading).

Core i7-3940XM operates at a nominal frequency of 3 GHz, equipped with 8 MB cache of the third level, two-channel controllers DDR3-1333/1600, graphics subsystem Intel HD 4000. There is support for dynamic overclocking Turbo Boost, Virtualization VT-x and VT-d, new commands AES and instructions AVX. TDP 3940XM is 55 watts.

Core i7-3840QM has almost …

Galaxy Unveils the GTX 760 Gamer and the GTX 780 Ti HOF Graphics Cards

Galaxy Microsystems, an official partner of Nvidia, has just introduced a couple of proprietary graphics solutions based on Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 760 and GeForce GTX 780 Ti adapters. Codenamed GTX 760 Gamer and GeForce GTX 780 Ti HOF (Hall of Fame), both products are differentiated by a refined design, combined with unmatched performance.

Galaxy GTX 760 Gamer

This graphics card is attributed to the mid-end solutions. It is developed on Nvidia GK104-225-A2 chip (28 nm) that involves 1152 CUDA cores, 32 ROPs, and 96 TMUs. The GPU operates at 1086 MHz, although has the potential to rise up to 1150 MHz on overclocking. The card boasts the availability of 4 GB GDDR5 memory with 256-bit bus. Its effective clock memory makes up 6 GHz. Cooling process is realized by means of a voluminous cooler, supplemented by two 80 mm fans and a metallic shield.

Corsair to Release Hydro Series H5 SF Liquid Cooler

Taking into account the increasing number of cases when it’s impossible to install highly efficient air coolers on mini-ITX motherboards, Corsair has developed a universal low-profile liquid cooler. Entitled Hydro Series H5 SF, the unit shows compatibility with the majority of small-sized platforms for Intel LGA1366/115x and AMD FM1/FM2/AM2/AM3 sockets. Besides, this model is able to manage with up to 150 W of thermal power.

Corsair Hydro Series H5 SF is distinguished by an unusual framework. It employs dedicated props which hover the heatsink over the motherboard; thus, the system does not require additional space within the case. The base is made of polished copper.

The aluminum heatsink (167x40x57) is accompanied by a 120-mm fan that drags out hot air from heat-generating components. Its rotation speed varies from 1000 RPM to 1800 RPM, producing 12-24 CFM airflow. Still, the fan appears to be rather noisy with the peak levels of 36-42 dB.

Corsair bundles the …
