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 …

Foxconn Introduces a Set of Motherboards for Intel Haswell Processors

Foxconn announces the release of several new motherboards, based on Intel H87 and B85 chipsets. The set consists of four models – B85MX, B85MX-D, H87MX, H87MX-D – compatible with the fourth generation Intel Core processors for Socket LGA 1150. The quad is intended for the assembling of small-sized mATX PCs, such as multifunctional office engines or powerful home multimedia centers.



The most outstanding peculiarities pertained to the new motherboards from Foxconn are seen in the support of PCI Express 3.0 bus with the bandwidth of 10 Gb/sec. The interface of the new generation allows integrating the most efficient graphics cards (and other peripherals) by means of dedicated PCIe sockets. Connectivity is supported due to dedicated SATA III ports and USB 3.0 ports.


The boards might accommodate up to 32 GB of DDR3 memory with clock frequencies up to 1600 MHz. The availability of an advanced Realtek audio controller ensures the production of a pure 5.1-channel sounding. …

Greeting One More Chassis of Urban Series from Thermaltake

Following the release of Urban S31 PC chassis, Thermaltake put its best foot forward to introduce one more representative of Urban series – Urban S41. This is a mid-tower case of a minimalistic design, with totally black exterior and interior. The model is vested in SECC steel coverage and will be available in two framework variations: with a large side-facet window and without it. In its entirety, the chassis features 516x220x520 mm dimensions and weighs 8.9 kg.



Thermaltake Urban S41 is ready to welcome all contemporary motherboards of ATX and micro-ATX standard. Despite its mid-tower framework nature, its internal capacity does not yield to some full-tower case species. Therefore, it positions four external drive bays of 5.25-inch format, five internal bays for 3.5-inch or 2.5-inch drives, and seven slots for PCI expansion cards. Additionally, the case is equipped with an external top-facet dock for the installation of drives with SATA interface (HDD/SSD). The frontal I/O …
