Intel to Take Care about Power-Efficiency of Ivy Bridge Processors

The rising competition between the two giants in the manufacture of processing units, Intel and AMD, makes each of the two invent ever newer technologies and implement them in their products. The attempts to dominate in the market and win as many consumers usually develop into brand new approaches and brand new advanced facilities.

In this light, Intel is going to upgrade its Ivy Bridge processors to make them more power-efficient. But power-efficiency does not imply that processing units will show less performance; quite the contrary, the manufacturer is willing to combine an utmost performance with the maximal power efficiency level.

Currently, the most power-saving processors of Ivy Bridge generation can be found in mobile devices on Windows platform and in Apple MacBook Air devices. Their TDP level is recorded at 17W. As appears from the above mentioned, the TDP level in upgraded Ivy Bridge processors will be lower than 17W, though the developers do not voice the margin …

3D-monitors D2343P-BN and D2743P-BN on matrix IPS from LG

The South Korean manufacturer of digital technology LG enlarged range of branded monitors by two nontrivial models — D2743P-BN and D2343P-BN. Title of the article clearly points out their main advantages — the support of stereoscopic image display quality and availability of the matrix In-Plane Switching with angles of 178 ° / 178 ° horizontal and vertical. LG D2743P-BN has a diagonal of 27 inches, D2343P-BN — 23 inches. The nominal resolution of both displays is 1920x1080 pixels, or, as is now fashionable to say, «Full HD».

New items stand out from their analogues by low power consumption. LG D2743P-BN, on average requires 27 watts of power, and D2343P-BN — 25 watts. Monitors support the «acceleration» of the matrix (Overdrive) to 5 ms, like TN + film screens. Another interesting feature of debutants is the built-in technology Super Resolution, which adds sharpness to blurred images. One click of the 2D-image on the screen can be turned into 3D. In order to view …

Motherboard Biostar A55MD2 Review

Good overclocking facilities are what the majority of customers look for in contemporary motherboards. In this light, the manufacturers establish various price ranges, depending on the product’s overclocking potential. As usual, boards from budgetary lines cannot boast such potential, though there are some exclusions. Biostar A55MD2 is considered to be one of the cheapest solutions for FM2 platforms. Still, its layout marvels by the availability of CPU boost facilities, as well as gigabit network interface.

Design and Layout

Motherboard Biostar A55MD2 distinguishes itself by rather compact dimensions: 226x178 mm (uATX form-factor). The model accommodates an amplifying board that is made of a metallic fusible element. The chipset is cooled down by a small-sized aluminum heatsink, while field transistors are avoid of any cooler. This might signify about some inconsideration pertained to thermal environment. Power supply activity is realized by means of 24-contact and …
