HIS Showcases New Graphics Card with Improved UVD GPU

The line of graphics cards manufactured by HIS has been recently replenished by an alternative Radeon HD 7950 IceQ Boost Clock model. The card takes a modified graphics adapter from AMD and is based on Tahiti PRO chip, developed according to 28 nm technological process. This chip houses 1792 current processors which are designed under an advanced Graphics Core Next architecture.

One of the major technological peculiarities pertained to a new model is the implementation of a unique two-slot IceQ cooler that involves an aluminum heatsink, four copper heat pipes and low-noise powerful fan. As claimed by the manufacturer, the integrated cooling system exceeds the cooler applied in the reference model in terms of heat dissipation power and noise. Hence, noise level produced by IceQ does not exceed the boundary of 28 dB; at the same time, it reduces the GPU temperature at 12 degrees as compared with the reference model.

To continue, Radeon HD 7950 IceQ Boost Clock is based on a …

Three New Nettop Models of NanoPC Series from Foxconn

Foxconn Electronics introduces three new nettops which replenish NanoPC 7000 series. All three, NanoPC AT-7300, NanoPC AT-7500 and NanoPC AT-7700, are claimed to be practically noiseless due to the improved integration and layout base. As scheduled by Foxconn, all the models will become available in March 2013 and will be priced at $390, $480, $600 correspondingly.

These nettops are based on Intel Ivy Bridge platform but are equipped with a bit different CPUs. Thus, NanoPC AT-7300 model accommodates Intel Core i3-3217U processor that operates at 1.8GHz clock frequency; NanoPC AT-7500 model houses Intel Core i5-3317U processor with 1.7GHz clock frequency; NanoPC AT-7700 takes Intel Core i7-3517U processor with 1.9Ghz frequency as the basis.

The integrated motherboard complies with a mobile chipset Intel HM76 Express and features Intel HD Graphics 4000 graphics core. Internal layout of all nettops presupposes the installation of 16GB DDR3 RAM and of additional HDD/SSD drive …

Greeting Omni-Purpose HQ720 & HQ740 Water Coolers from Zalman

Zalman has gladdened all devotees of liquid cooling by introducing a pair of new solutions: the HQ720 & the HQ740. Both models are targeting all modern as well as outdated platforms, including Intel LGA 115x/LGA 1366/LGA 2011/LGA 2011-v3 & AMD FM1/FM2/FM2+/AM2/AM2+/AM3/AM3+. The first model comes equipped with a single fan, while the second one – with two fans.

Zalman HQ720 & HQ740 feature a high-performance heatsink, made of aluminum. It is accompanied by a copper pump (62x62x35 mm) that operates at 12V voltage. Its MTBF makes up 75.000 hours. The integrated water pump consists of micro-channels and a pair of hoses.

The fans (120 mm) are based on fluid bearing, estimated for 60.000 hours of fool-proof operation. They support PWM technology that allows for varying the rotational speed from 800 to 2000 RPM. Besides, they employ 4-pin connectors.

The fans are able to deliver up to 107.41 CFM airflow, whereas the noise level remains within the range of 18-24.8 dB. If …
