Intel Broadwell CPUs will Get BGA Casing

The Internet community is energetically discussing unofficial info concerning the future Intel's Broadwell processors. According to the yet unacknowledged data, Intel will branch off from currently traditional LGA casings in favor to a more advanced BGA solution. At present all CPUs designed by Intel specifically for desktop platforms feature LGA (Land Grid Array) casings which allow the users to upgrade their systems without any hassle. On LGA implementation, the chip is housed within a socket and contacts with the motherboard. As a result, the user might change one chip to the other only with similar set of contacts.

The launch of Intel Broadwell processors, which is planned for 2014, might dramatically change the situation for customers. Most probably Intel will refuse from LGA casings and accommodate all new CPUs in BGA ones, marking the change of Haswell generation to the future Broadwell generation developed under 14 nm technological process. BGA (Ball Grid Array) …

ECS to Implement AMD Memory Profile Support into Its Motherboards

AMD has won a reputation not only for designing and supplying high-end processors but also for introducing its brand memory expansion, codenamed AMD Memory Profile. This development is called to store and share memory settings profiles and to facilitate the search for the most rational settings. Thus, ECS company is going to implement AMP support for DDR3 memory into its future and current lineup of motherboards. According to the available data, AMP technology will be applied to the upcoming motherboards with AMD processors, and to the current products by means of UEFI firmware update. This is the first 'revival' of the technology since its reconsideration and upgrade.

The integrated technology is destined to setup new frequency, voltage and timings showings which will facilitate in keeping DDR3 memory modules stable. As a rule, random-access memory with high frequencies of more than 2GHz require manual system overclocking. AMP will prevent the emergence of errors while setting …

Thecus Adds N2810 NAS to Its Rich Portfolio

Thecus Technology Corp. marked the beginning of a new production year by launching an offbeat multi-task NAS – the N2810. The model is targeting to solve a wide spectrum of assignments; however, it might become an ideal solution for a demanding multimedia system. The all-black case is estimated for two 3.5-inch HDD drives which can be swapped thanks to dedicated buttons on the front panel. Sales are scheduled for February 2016.

Thecus N2810 is developed on Intel Celeron N3050 (Intel Braswell, 14 nm) CPU with 6 W TDP. Its base clock frequency makes up 1.6 GHz, while efficient index might achieve 2.16 GHz. The CPU cooperates with 2 GB of DDR3 memory. Interestingly enough, the customer is free to expand RAM to 8 GB, if necessary.

The frontal panel accommodates Start button as well as a set of interfaces: three USB 3.0 ports, a pair of RJ45 LAN ports, and a single HDMI video port. Such assembly provides for the connection of external drives, peripherals and multimedia …
