The Intel Company Is Going to Give a Roland for an Oliver to AMD Ryzen

A short while ago the French Canard PC Hardware magazine has reported, that Intel is going to give fitting reply to AMD Ryzen pilot projects and plans to release two new Kaby Lake-S CPUs.



The first processor is expected to be launched under the Intel Core i7-7740K codename. It will get four compute cores with Hyper-Threading support, 8 MB of tertiary memory cache, unlocked multiplier and the 100 W basic TDP rate. Operating frequencies will lie in the range of 4.3–4.6 GHz in the Turbo Boost mode.


The second specialty is Core i5-7640K with four cores and 4–4.4 frequency of operation. It also features 6 MB of L3 cache, 100 W TDP and the support of Hyper-Threading technology, though we can’t be sure as for the last-named specification. One should admit, that heretofore only the Intel Core i7 line offered multithreading in its 4-core desktop processors.

The Debut of Cooler Master MasterLiquid Pro 140 and 280 CPU Liquid-Cooling Systems

This year the Cooler Master company has released a series of original MasterLiquid Pro liquid-cooling systems for Intel and AMD CPUs. The models with 120 mm and 240 mm heat sinks were the first to be released. Now it’s the turn of MasterLiquid Pro 140 and 280 devices, using the liquid-cooling systems heat sinks of the suitable size.



These novelties with a “one-piece” and “two-piece” heat sinks have much in common, though they differ in heat spreader dimensions (171 × 138 × 27 mm and 311 × 138 × 27 mm), as well as in the location of the 140 mm fans pair. MasterLiquid Pro 140 has them mounted on both sides of the heat dissipator and MasterLiquid Pro 280 — on the one side only.


Coolers consist of the big water unit with the inbuilt pump, pipes made out of fluorated ethylene-propylene copolymer in braided cable, the aluminum heat sink and fans with a high static pressure rate (up to 3.15 mm H2O).


The water unit base is manufactured out of copper. Inside of …

Adata Intros M.2-Type SX8000 Solid-State Drive

Adata keeps on developing its hardware potential. This time the company introduces a lineup of M.2 2280 solid-state drives, targeting gamers & enthusiasts. The XPG SX8000 is based on 3D MLC NAND chips, combined with SMI 2260 controller. The drive employs PCI Express 3.0 x4 external interface and shows a total compatibility with NVMe 1.2 standard.



Adata XPG SX8000 will be available in four capacities: 128 GB, 256 GB, 512 GB & 1 TB. Nonetheless, the company has unveiled performance showings only for the first three models. Thus, the junior model offers 1000/300 MB/sec speed on sequential Read/Write operations (ATTO compression); 1000/300 MB/sec speed on sequential Read/Write operations (CrystalDiskMark uncompressed); 900/280 MB/sec speed on sequential Read/Write operations (AS SSD uncompressed). At the same time, the drive’s random showings make up 45000/75000 IOPS (Read/Write).


To continue, the XPG SX8000 256 GB item features the following efficiency specifications: …
