Biostar Announces N3150NH Mainboard with Integrated CPU

The inventory of Biostar’s mini-ITX motherboards was replenished by a new uncommon model – the N3150NH. Its key peculiarity is the availability of a 4-core Intel Celeron N3150 CPU onboard. The processor (Intel Braswell family, 14 nm technological process) comes equipped with an integrated Intel HD graphics core and a passive cooler. Its nominal clock frequency makes up 1.6 GHz, while on overclocking it accelerates up to 2.08 GHz frequency.

Biostar N3150NH houses two SO-DIMM slots, estimated for 8 GB DDR3-1600 MHz memory modules (two-channel operational mode). The connection of drives is realized via a pair of SATA III 6 Gb/sec ports. There is a possibility to install one expansion card thanks to a single PCI Express 2.0 x1 slot. Network facilities are ensured due to Realtek RTL8111H controller that supports SmartSpeedLAN utility, whereas audio production becomes possible due to the integration of Realtek ALC662 controller.

The connection of peripherals is enabled via …

Intel Makes an Agreement with ASML to Accelerate 450 mm Wafer Development

The past several days were marked by the Intel's announcement about the celebration of a contract with ASML company. Such step has been dictated by the company's intentions to invest into the development of 450 mm wafers and EUV technologies. In accordance with the preliminary estimates, the general investment rate will reach $4.1 billion. The major target of the cooperation is to decrease the term of lithography equipment commissioning by two years, and stimulate the development of technologies targeted at 450 mm wafers. The implementation of the predesigned plans will allow the manufacturers of semiconductor components to receive a range of benefits, among which is the cut of expenses.

With the purpose to facilitate in the solution of this technological problem, Intel will take part in a dedicated program. This program includes financial backup of scientific and research projects, as well as, equity investing campaigns in ASML.

The initial stage of this program …

Evga Launches One More Overclocked Graphics Card

Evga, a leading American supplier of 3D cards, is going to launch one more graphics card with factory overclocked speeds. A new model is based on Nvidia FeForce GTX 670 adapter and codenamed as Evga GeForce GTX 670 FTW LE. Its design resembles the one implemented in GeForce GTX 670 FTW card, but the main distinction between them is seen in frequency showings. The newbie demonstrates a bit lower frequency index than its predecessor.

Evga GeForce GTX 670 FTW LE is housed on a PCB designed for PCI-e 3.0 x16 bus. This card takes GK104 graphics core with 1344 CUDA cores as the basis; it is developed on Kepler architecture under 28 nm standards. Its inventory also embraces 2GB of GDDR5 memory (256-bit interface). Cooling system is introduced by a 2-slot cooler of active type with a single turbine-like fan. Power subsystem consists of two connection 6-pin sockets and requires a quite efficient PSU (not less than 500W power).

Frequency template looks the following way: GPU runs at …
