Processors Intel Haswell to Rival Accelerator NVIDIA Tesla

Intel Corporation has the intentions to introduce DDR4 memory into their server processors of Haswell series. The launch of such technological approach is planned for the 2014, however the developments in this sphere have already started. Intel’s server solutions will become a part of Grantley platform and the samples of their new series will allegedly be announced next autumn. The preview of new processors makes it clear that some of the chips will be distinguished by the increased heat generation performance which will reach 160 W.

Hence, 16-core processors Haswell-EP will rival parallel computing accelerator NVIDIA Tesla but not AMD server solutions. Intel is going to provide various working frequency options and options with different number of active cores. At the same time, TDP will fluctuate within ranges of 160, 145, 135, and 120 W. In its turn, accelerator NVIDIA Tesla, which is based on GK110 processor, consumes approximately 300 W.

HDD-Box with Futuristic Design from Icy Dock

The market of external enclosures boasts a number of products from different companies. Nevertheless, Icy Dock decided to stand out against the background of others and introduced its HDD-box codenamed MB080U3S-1SB Blizzard. It seems that the manufacturer went beyond the realism and created a really futuristic dock for hard drives: instead of standard square shape Icy Dock made diamond-shaped detachable clipboard.

The dock is made of metal and plastic, and goes totally in black color. The clipboard covers 80 mm fan which is called to cool down even hot drives. This is unusual fan localization for the external enclosures but the manufacturers explain their move twofold. Firstly, this way the fan is able to dissipate cool airflow to all sides of HDD. This ensures the longevity of the cooling fan and increases the cooling system efficiency. Secondly, it promotes for hassle-free installation without any screws or other tools. The ejection of the clipboard is enabled due to the …
