Processors Intel Haswell to Rival Accelerator NVIDIA Tesla

Intel Corporation has the intentions to introduce DDR4 memory into their server processors of Haswell series. The launch of such technological approach is planned for the 2014, however the developments in this sphere have already started. Intel’s server solutions will become a part of Grantley platform and the samples of their new series will allegedly be announced next autumn. The preview of new processors makes it clear that some of the chips will be distinguished by the increased heat generation performance which will reach 160 W.

Hence, 16-core processors Haswell-EP will rival parallel computing accelerator NVIDIA Tesla but not AMD server solutions. Intel is going to provide various working frequency options and options with different number of active cores. At the same time, TDP will fluctuate within ranges of 160, 145, 135, and 120 W. In its turn, accelerator NVIDIA Tesla, which is based on GK110 processor, consumes approximately 300 W.

Lian Li to Release a Space-Saving PC-Q33 Chassis

Lian Li, a well-known hardware manufacturer from Taiwan, is ready to marvel the audience by one more offbeat PC case: the PC-Q33. The model is developed in a space-saving mini-ITX standard with 229x328x240 mm dimensions. Despite frugal size, an overall case capacity equals to 29.2 liters. This chassis features a quite laconic design, although will be available in two coating variations: black and silver. The implementation of a lock on the frontal panel is thought to be the model’s basic peculiarity.

The PC-Q33 is consistent with mini-ITX and mini-DTX motherboards and supports the installation of 220 mm graphics cards, as well as 180 mm CPU coolers. At the same time, the maximal length of the power supply unit should not be more than 200 mm. Internal layout presupposes the mounting of three 2.5-inch drives and a couple of 3.5-inch drives.

PCI Expansion slots are available in the amount of two only. The frontal panel accommodates two high-speed USB ports (3.0 v) and 3.5 mm …

PC Cases Enermax iVektor to Be Launched in Late August

Enermax is going to release its new iVektor series of PC cases already in late August. First seen at Computex 2013, these products draw prime attention due to unusual design and voluminous internal layout. The series counts three models that are differentiated by color: white version – Enermax iVektor (ECA3310A-W), black version – Enermax iVektor (ECA3310A-B), and red version – Enermax iVektor (ECA3310B-R). They are destined to be employed as the basis for the assembling of various system configurations.

All iVektor representatives are developed in midi-tower form-factor, featuring steel and plastic chassis. The cases support ATX/micro-ATX motherboards and seven expansion slots. Internal layout presupposes the incorporation of three 5.25-inch optical drives, as well as seven 3.5-inch drives. The height of a supported power supply unit might not exceed 179 mm.

When the user fills all seven bays for 3.5-inch drives, the maximal admissible length of graphics adapters …
