AMD Highlights Plans for the Transition to the 28nm Process

AMD is a company known for the continual and elaborate work on the development and improvement of all product lines, as well as technological standards. Thus, the coming 2013 year is supposed to be portentous for the company in terms of the implementation of 28nm standards in their APU. AMD has recently voiced the plans for the change of the Trinity APU to a new model, codenamed Richland, and the transition to 28nm technological process.



The new APU, Richland, is presumably to be released in two versions: dual-core and quad-core. It will support a number of high-performance technologies, such as Blu-ray 3D, dual graphics, Open CL, AMD turbo core overclocking, and some others.


According to the preliminary information, Richland will employ FM2 socket (which Trinity employs) and Radeon 8000 series DirextX 11 GPU. This GPU will be furnished with 128 cores in dual-core model line, and with 384 cores in the high-end A10 APU. The same number of cores has been implemented in …

Asus Outs 24-Inch VG245H Monitor

Asus is known for innovation. There is small wonder that its latest monitor, entitled VG245H, supports AMD FreeSync technology via HDMI, although initially this facility was available only via DisplayPort connection. It goes without saying that it’s not the only attraction of a new 24-inch monitor with 16:9 aspect ratio.



Asus VG245H is based on TN panel with Full HD resolution (1920x1080). Its response time index makes up 1 ms, whereas viewing angles still should be improved (170/160 degrees). The display is housed on a functional stand which supports height, tilt, swivel, and aspect adjustments. According to Asus, the dynamic refresh rate might vary from 40 Hz to 75 Hz; such stunning showings ensure top-tier imaging without artifacts.


The integrated panel ensures the maximal brightness index up to 250 cd/m2, dynamic contrast index up to 100M:1 and the display of up to 16.7 million colors. There is a possibility to connect audio peripherals thanks to the inbuilt 3.5-mm …

Zalman Boasts a New Line of PSUs with an Improved Design

The line of products manufactured by Zalman has been just replenished with a new series of power supply units, codenamed Zalman LX. The series is currently represented by two models of 500 W and 600 W power: ZM500-LX and ZM600-LX. Both units employ an improved Dual Forward Converter Circuit design that ensures reliable and efficient functioning. They are also equipped with a single +12V rail and show compatibility with Intel ATX12V 2.31 standard.



Zalman LX PSUs utilize a couple of PCI Express sockets (one 6-contact and one 6+2-contact) for the connection with graphics cards, securing the support of AMD CrossFireX and Nvidia SLI technologies. Cooling of all internal components is ascribed to a low-noise fan of 120 mm dimensional type. Its operation is automatically monitored by Smart Fan Control system that provides for the achievement of an optimal balance between its efficiency and noise level.


The new-comers support a large amount of protective options that promote for …
