Intel Makes an Agreement with ASML to Accelerate 450 mm Wafer Development

The past several days were marked by the Intel's announcement about the celebration of a contract with ASML company. Such step has been dictated by the company's intentions to invest into the development of 450 mm wafers and EUV technologies. In accordance with the preliminary estimates, the general investment rate will reach $4.1 billion. The major target of the cooperation is to decrease the term of lithography equipment commissioning by two years, and stimulate the development of technologies targeted at 450 mm wafers. The implementation of the predesigned plans will allow the manufacturers of semiconductor components to receive a range of benefits, among which is the cut of expenses.



With the purpose to facilitate in the solution of this technological problem, Intel will take part in a dedicated program. This program includes financial backup of scientific and research projects, as well as, equity investing campaigns in ASML.


The initial stage of this program …

HIS Adds an Original Graphics Card to Its Inventory

The inventory of graphics solutions developed by HIS has been replenished with a new original in design card based on Radeon HD 7850 adapter. Entitled HIS Radeon HD 7850 iPower IceQ, the card is stuffed with a three-slot IceQ cooler and substantial memory volume that equals to 4GB. In addition, this model supports iTurbo applet that promotes for the GPU and memory clock frequencies increase.



Graphics card from HIS is based on a two-layer copper printed circuit board. The latter houses soldered DrMOS elements instead of conventional transistors. The integrated GPU is furnished with 1024 current processors. Its nominal clock frequency equals to 860MHz but can be dynamically boosted due to iTurbo technology. In its turn, iPower technology ensures stability and more voltage index for efficient overclocking process.


Memory subsystem is introduced by GDDR5 modules with 265-bit interface. The nominal memory clock frequency approximates 4800MHz. Power supply subsystem consists of …

Intel is preparing a new motherboard on chipset Z77 and Z75

Intel Corporation has a rather wide range of motherboards for processors Core i5/i7-3000 (Ivy Bridge), but, nevertheless, continues to produce products based on chipsets 7-Series. According to reports, the release of two motherboards Intel LGA1155 — DZ77GAL-70K is planned soon with code-named Gasper Light and DZ75ML-45K (Middle Lake). The first model uses a set of system logic Z77, second — Z75. Both models will receive a certificate of Windows 8 WHQL, support of Fast Boot technology and Lucid Virtu MVP.



Model Intel DZ77GAL-70K is based on the same PCB, as the previous DZ77GA-70K (Gasper) and DZ77RE-75K (Roads End). In contrast to the board DZ77GA-70K, new doesn’t have a rich set of delivery: WiDi-compatible adapter with an antenna, Bluetooth, remote panel with two USB 3.0 ports and a mouse pad Intel Extreme Series. Due to this, it will be cheaper than DZ77GA-70K.


In turn, Intel DZ75ML-45K (Middle Lake) is a compromise models between the DZ77SL-50K and DH77KC. This …
