APU AMD A10-4600M Review

Intel and AMD companies have established a good reputation for providing efficient hardware solutions for all customer groups. Each new product introduced by the two companies enters the top sales ranks and this promotes for the competition. AMD has recently produced a new APU solution based on Trinity architecture with graphics module VLIW4 and called it AMD A10-4600M. This model can boast the whole spectrum of improvements and advanced features as compared with its predecessor APU Llano, and is intended to beat its rival Intel in efficiency and performance.



Trinity Architecture


CPU Trinity is based on Piledriver micro architecture which superseded Bulldozer from AMD. The distinctive feature of Piledriver is that it’s primarily integrated in a mobile APU. Quad-core Trinity chips utilize two Bulldozer modules, each of which is equipped with two execution cores. Each APU module employs 2 MB of L2 cache, so the entire module architecture approximates to 4 MB of L2 cache; …

A Low-profile SilverStone NT08-115XP Cooling System

Nowadays compact systems are becoming more widespread, thus increasing the popularity of low-profile cooling systems. Specifically for such systems, the SilverStone Company has designed a low-profile air cooling system under the NT08-115XP codename.



NT08-115XP is announced to be an alternative to a standard cooler out of the CPU supply kit. The manufacturer states, that this cooling system is able to disseminate up to 65 W of heat, so it’s not effective enough to chill down powerfull CPUs.


The dimensions of the SilverStone NT08-115XP cooling system are the following: 101 x 101 x 33 mm. It possesses an aluminum heatsink with a copper center hub. The rotary speed of the 80 mm fan (10 mm thick) is in the range of 1200–3400 rpm, producing an air flow of 5.64–15.98 CFM (9.58–27.15 m3/hr) and a noise level of 16.5–28.98 dBA.


This specialty is compatible with Intel LGA 115x sockets only.
