Intel Debuts with Skull Canyon NUC Mini-PC

Skull Canyon was designed to dispel stereotypes about low efficiency of compact-sized PCs. Intel tried hard to take its mini-PC to the next level. Hence, the company furnished it with a 4-core Core i7-6770HQ CPU (Skylake) with support of Hyper-Threading. It features 6 MB L3 cache, 45 W TDP and runs at 2.6/3.5 GHz frequency. The CPU incorporates Intel Iris Pro Graphics 580 (GT4e) graphics core with 72 computing units and an additional eDRAM of 128 MB (frequency index: 350-950 MHz).

Intel Skull Canyon is housed in a stylish case with skull logo, featuring 216x116x23 mm dimensions & 0.7 liters capacity. The model accommodates a pair of So-DIMM DDR4-2133+ slots, allowing to install up to 32 GB of memory. Storage subsystem might be organized thanks to a pair of M.2 slots which support SSDs with SATA or PCI Express x4 interface.

Gigabyte Readies Entry-Level Graphics Card GV-N640D5-2GI

Gigabyte is going to introduce one more entry-level graphics solution that corresponds to the updated Nvidia GeForce GT 640 series. Entitled Gigabyte GeForce GT 640 (GV-N640D5-2GI), the card employs GK107 GPU, running at 1046 MHz frequency instead of the preceding 900 MHz. The core, developed under 28 technological process, utilizes 384 CUDA cores.

It’s necessary to underline that the new-comer differs by the availability of 2 GB memory, whereas all etalon models take 1 GB only. Memory is represented by 64-bit GDDR5 chips that run at 5010 MHz effective frequency, if compared with 1800 MHz frequency that DDR3 modules demonstrate.

GV-N640D5-2GI comes with an improved design of PCB where a brand Ultra Durable 2 concept has been incorporated. This concept implies the employment of a high-quality hardware base, involving durable solid-state capacitors, transistors with low channel resistance RDS (on), and ferrite throttles with reduced power loss. Traditionally, the model …
