MSI AM1I: Motherboard with Military Class 4 Hardware Base

MSI is one of the first manufacturers to introduce a motherboard for the newly launched AMD AM1 platform. The MSI AM1I features rather compact dimensions (170x170 mm) but its mini-ITX form-factor does not affect the specified functional possibilities for entry-level systems. The model supports AMD Athlon/Sempron processors for the above-mentioned socket.

The employment of Military Class 4 hardware base is supposed to be a major advantage of AM1I motherboard. It involves dark chokes, dark capacitors and other crucial components, which are backed by Military Class Essentials technology. The latter is called to protect the PCB from varied unfavorable happenings, i.e. high humidity, electrostatic discharge or high temperatures.

The PCB comes with two DIMM slots for the incorporation of one-channel DDR3 memory modules (up to 32 GB) with 1333/1600 MHz frequency. Storage is organized by means of two SATA III 6 Gb/sec ports, whereas expansion of functional is due to two PCI …

Mustek Introduces a New Compact UPS Model

Mustek, an established supplier of consumer electronics and hardware, announces the release of its new product line – UPS series PowerMust 1000/1400/2000 USB P. The series is basically targeted at home-based users, as well as, small and middle-size business structures. The major task of the new model line is to provide efficient uninterrupted operation of PCs, desktops and other devices that are used to work in non-favorable environment (continual voltage interruptions).

Mustek PowerMust is delivered in three variants with 1000, 1400 and 2000 VA. The models are able to provide all vital facilities for the secure PC and network equipment running. PowerMust is called to fulfill several functions simultaneously and cannot be applied only on conditions of voltage absence or fluctuations. This device will protect all equipment from voltage decrease to 160V and from the necessity to switch to the battery power supply. Thus, UPS units are furnished with standard Euro socket, USB …

Preview of Intel Itanium 9500 Specifications

The Internet community is actively discussing new Intel's development, processors Poulson, that belongs to the tenth generation of Intel Itanium. All previous data about the upcoming product were vague and void of official proofs. Currently, the data are more ample and allow the community to study the future processor in more details. Thus, Intel Itanium 9500, codenamed Poulson, will be presented by four models the release of which is planned for early autumn.

The crystal of Poulson processor will consist of 3.1 billion transistors that are called to form eight computing cores. Each core counts up 89 million transistors and the pipeline width is doubled to twelve instructions. This way CPU developers implement more efficient approach towards transistor budget. Just for comparison purposes, Poulson's predecessor, Tukwila, counted 109 billion transistors per core.

To continue, Poulson CPUs will accommodate a couple of cache memory arrays, five channels of QPI bus, system …
