Corsair Outs ML Series of Fans

Corsair officially launches a new lineup of air fans, entitled ML. The greenhorns are introduced in two form-factors – 120 mm & 140 mm – as well as in three types: ML, ML Pro, ML Pro LED. The first version includes a pair of fans in the kit, the second one supports anti-vibration rubber pads in corners, whereas the third series comes equipped with LED backlight (white, blue or red). Consequently, the price range varies from $24.99 to $39.99.

The key advantage of Corsair ML fans is the incorporation of Magnetic Levitation Bearing. Thanks to magnetic levitation, the fins do not touch the motor, thus eliminating any frictions. This serves for the reduction of noise level and the enhancement of performance.

All 120-mm models rotate at 400-2400 RPM speed; they are supposed to be ideal companions to CPU coolers. At the same time, all 140-mm fans rotate at 400-2000 RPM; they are thought to act perfectly as system fans. On top rotational index the fans produce up to 75-97 CFM …

ASMedia to Introduce USB 3.5 Controllers in 2014

ASMedia, an auspicious designer of PCIe bridges, USB 3.0 controllers and Switch IC items, announces the development of a new USB 3.5 controller. According to the preliminary information, this controller is going to support 10 Gb/sec data transfer speed, which is nearly twice higher than current USB 3.0. Earlier the launch of an advanced component was scheduled for late 2014, however, now the company is intended to officially introduce it early next year.

The decision to elaborate a speedier controller is explained by ASMedia in two ways. Firstly, the company is currently receiving more orders from motherboard manufacturers for the development of USB 3.0 hubs, due to the recent launch of Intel Haswell CPUs. Nonetheless, an enforcement of platform will sooner or later require an enforcement of various facilities, including connectivity and data transfer.

Secondly, USB 3.5 is called to rival Thunderbolt interface. It should be stressed that both interfaces feature analogous …
