Xeon Phi: Revolutionary Offer from Intel Developers

Intel Corporation has made a resolute step towards the improvement of performance demonstrated by ‘supercomputers’. Its new Intel Xeon Phi is called to create a real revolution in the IT world, offering unmatched performance showings on activities with the high parallelism degree. This is supposed to bring supercomputers to the new level by means of enlarging the performance levels from TFLOP to EXAFLOP. Upon the whole, Xeon Phi is the name which will be used for further line of products based on Intel MIC architecture.

Xeon Phi coprocessors are sure to enable the transmission of the reduced data via PCI slots and will primarily be applied to dedicated coprocessors. The sales start is designated to the end of the current year, and the first products presented in the market will be items which belong to Knights Corner series. According to the Intel developers’ words, Xeon Phi will firstly replenish the series of central processors Intel Xeon E5-2600/4600; further on, the …

Cooltek Rolls Out Thermolab CPU Coolers

Enlisting up support of a well-known German manufacturer PC Cooling GmbH (Cooltek brand), Thermolab brought on the European market a pair of small-sized CPU coolers. Codenamed LP53 and ITX30, the products are differentiated by the depth of the copper plates and the dimensions of the pre-installed fan. Both new-comers are predestined for mini-ITX and micro-ATX platforms with Intel LGA1156/1155/1150 socket and 100 W TDP processors.

The Thermolab LP53 features 100x94x53 mm dimensions and weighs 410 g (including fan). It consists of a copper base, two 6 mm heatpipes, and 7-blade PWM fan of 92 mm dimensional type. The latter is able to rotate within the speed range of 1000 RPM to 2100 RPM, producing up to 27 dB noise. The cooler’s price does not transcend 37 EUR.

In its turn, the Thermolab ITX30 features 100x94x30 mm dimensions and weighs 300 g. It accommodates a copper base, a heatsink, two 6 mm heatpipes, and a single 80 mm PWM fan. It supports a wider speed range – from …

Sapphire Radeon RX 480 Nitro OC is Available for Preorder

Sapphire is about to launch the first modification of AMD’s graphics adapter – the Radeon RX 480. The new-comer, entitled Radeon RX 480 Nitro OC, is already available for preorder at the price tag of $322. The PCB, as well as the integrated cooling system, employs a modified design. The ‘OC’ postfix implies that the card has been overclocked to provide for a better performance.

Sapphire Radeon RX 480 Nitro OC comes equipped with AMD Polaris 10 GPU (14 nm, FinFet, GCN). It features 2304 stream processors, 32 ROPs & 144 TMUs. The presumptive GPU clock frequency might achieve 1350 MHz. At the same time, memory subsystem hasn’t been modified: 8 GB of GDDR5 are supposed to run at 2.0/8.0 GHz (base/dynamic) frequency.

The 2-slot cooling system employs a few heatpipes, a large aluminum heatsink, a stiffening plate at the reverse side, and a couple of 100-mm fans. The latter are able to operate in passive mode when GPU temperature is low. Moreover, the model boasts the …
