Noctua Expands ‘A’ Fan Series

The line of Noctua’s A fan series has been enriched with three new models: NF-A9 92 mm, NF-A8 80 mm and NF-A4x10 5 V 40 mm. The triple is based on traditional SSO-2 bearings which provide for an optimal balance of lifespan (up to 150.000 hours) and noise level. In order to enhance the performance and reduce noise during operation Noctua equipped the fans with Advanced Acoustic Optimization frame, anti-vibration pads, and such technologies as Stepped Inlet Design, Inner Surface Microstructures and Flow Acceleration Channels.

Noctua NF-A9 model is an heir of a renowned NF-B9 version. It is available in two variations: NF-A9 PWM and NF-A9 FLX. The first one allows for dynamic alteration of operational speeds from 400 RPM to 2000 RPM; the other one offers three fixed speed indices (1050/1250/1600 RPM).

Noctua NF-A8 is a successor of NF-R8 model. It is available in three variations: NF-A8 PWM, NF-A8 FLX and NF-A8 ULN. The first fan is able to rotate at 450-2200 RPM speed …

Intel is preparing a quad-core Core i7-3740QM, 3840QM and 3940XM

In late September — early October, Intel plans to update the lineup of Core i7 processors on the cores generation Ivy Bridge (22 nm). It is expected that within a few months users will witness the announcement of the CPU for laptops Core i7-3740QM, 3840QM and 3940XM, which will replace released in April 3720QM, 3820QM and 3920XM, respectively.

According to the information from web resources, the trio will receive an increase of 100 MHz from the predecessors, retaining the previous TDP and probably the recommended price. A common feature of the new processors is four x86-cores that handle data in 8 threads (Hyper-Threading).

Core i7-3940XM operates at a nominal frequency of 3 GHz, equipped with 8 MB cache of the third level, two-channel controllers DDR3-1333/1600, graphics subsystem Intel HD 4000. There is support for dynamic overclocking Turbo Boost, Virtualization VT-x and VT-d, new commands AES and instructions AVX. TDP 3940XM is 55 watts.

Core i7-3840QM has almost …
