New High-End Motherboards for AMD CPUs from ECS

ECS is going to release a new high-performance motherboard of Black Series line that supports AMD CPUs. Codenamed A970M-A Deluxe, it is compatible with AM3/AM3+ APU and is characterized by the integration of the latest technological facilities which provide for efficiency, reliability, and ease of use. The model is developed on the basis of AMD 970 chipset; this is supposed to ensure the maximal performance generated by the newest processors, and at the same time, the compatibility with the previous developments. Moreover, A970M-A Deluxe completely supports Windows 8 platform and a range of refined technologies, including EZ BIOS, UEFI BIOS, ECS MIB X, 8-channel audio HD and Anti-Dust Shield Technology.

Motherboard ECS A970M-A Deluxe is developed in ATX form-factor. It accommodates 32GB of two-channel DDR3 memory housed on four DIMM slots. The nominal memory frequency equals to 1866 MHz, but this index might achieve the margin of 2133 MHz on overclocking. The board is equipped …

Modular Power Supply 650W Chieftec A80

Evaluating the effectiveness of modern computer power supplies, the most attention is paid to their coefficient of performance (COP) at a given load — usually means of 20%, 50% and 100%. At the same time, not less important requirement, established by standard 80PLUS should be considered. That means — the preservation of this level of performance for all occurring in the world supply voltage variations, that is in the range of 100-240 V.

The standard rules of 80PLUS at different levels (Basic, Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, etc.) are performed for two voltage 115 V and 230 V. In both cases, the normalized PS should show the efficiency of not less than specified for each category level. Not usual power supply CTG-650C model of the new A-80 series from the Chieftec company is interesting in that it has officially claimed efficiency of 85% or more, but only for nets 220-240 V.

As the advantages of such solution can immediately be noted a lower price, due to less stringent …

Athlon II X2 221 and 198 Sempron X2 (FM1) appeared in the systems HP

It is well known that part of hybrid processors AMD for platform Socket FM1 have a non-working graphics power, so for their release the market brands Athlon and Sempron are used. Last fall, it was reported about the upcoming appearance in the sale of dual-core chip Athlon II X2 221 and 198 Sempron X2, but information about its actual release appeared only now. This hitch is not surprising, given the fact that these processors are still used only on computers in the collection of HP brand for the Chinese market.

Sempron X2 198 (2.5GHz) was seen in the budget desktop HP Pavilion p6-1152cx, p6-1159cx, p6-1230cx and p6-1231cx. This CPU includes two core architectures AMD K10.5, 2x512 KB cache of second level and dual-channel DDR3-1600. The TDP level is 65W.

Athlon II X2 221 clock frequency is 2.8 GHz. Other characteristics of processor are the same as in the lower Sempron X2 198. Both models support 64-bit code, virtualization, AMD-V and instructions even SSE4a. Athlon II X2 …
