Aerocool Cruisestar Advance Case Overview

Many manufacturers of budget-friendly PC cases adore expanding their line-up by a banal change of the plastic case kit without dramatic changes in the filling or framing structure of the chassis. The Aerocool Company is also saddening with this approach, although, for the sake of justice, it is worth noting that in recent years this has happened quite rarely. Nevertheless, the subject of today's review – the Cruisestar Advance is just the result of a change in appearance based on the simplest PGS-V series frames. Let’s see what the consequences of this metamorphosis from the point of view of the ordinary buyer are.

Next year TSMC will start manufacturing the first 20nm chips

The Taiwanese company TSMC confirmed its intention to start production of chips using 20 nm technological processes in 2013. However, for now the company does not plan its production on an industrial scale and will release the first chips in a limited quantities, giving them a total of 1% of production capacity. According to the head of the company, the mass production of semiconductor chips with this technology will not begin until 2014.



Meanwhile TSMC Company is going to produce only one version of the chip, which will be able to enter into the wide range of devices, from smart phones with low-power to high-performance graphics cards. For comparison, the Taiwanese company currently has four different output chips on 28-nm technology. These are 28LP (poly / SiON) for low-power low-cost chips, 28HPL (HKMG) for use in low power applications, 28HP (HKMG) for high-performance chips and 28HPM (HKMG). The latest version combines elements of high-performance chips with high efficiency …

MSI Unveils New Gaming Graphics Card GeForce GTX 760 Hawk

MSI has recently introduced its newest graphics adapter with the support of Twin BIOS technology. Codenamed MSI GeForce GTX 760 Hawk, the card positions itself as an optimal solution for inveterate gamers, as well as for overclockers. The new-comer is based on Nvidia’s GK104 GPU (28 nm technological process) with 1152 CUDA cores. It runs on dynamically heightened frequencies, as compared with the reference model.



Therefore, the nominal clock frequency has been raised from 980 MHz to 1033 MHz, whereas the overclocked frequency has jumped from 1111 MHz to 1176 MHz. As for the memory, represented by 2 GB GDDR5 modules with 256-bit rail, its frequency index has not undergone any changes: 1502 MHz/6008 MHz (nominal/overclocked).


To continue, GTX 760 Hawk takes a fully modified 8-layer PCB as the basis. GPU power supply is ensured by means of an efficient power converter and prime-quality Military Class 4 components, including solid-state Hi-C CAP capacitors with tantalum …
