Lifting the Veil from USB Type-C Bus

Since the launch in 1995, Universal Serial Bus (USB) has proved itself as the most successful ever computing interface. Nowadays tens of billions of electronic devices are connected together due to it. It goes without saying that this bus has outlived a few modifications, each distinguished by higher speed and reliability. Thus, today the community is able to revel in a completely new modification – USB Type-C – that forecasts a lot privileges of connectivity process. Let’s see what users will get with a new bus.



Layout and Connectivity


In physical terms, Type-C is a bit larger than USB 2.0 Micro-B but a bit tinier than binary USB 3.0 Micro-B, featuring 8.34x2.56 mm. Such dimensions enable its connection to the devices of any type, including the thinnest smartphones/tablets. The oval-shaped socket houses 24 contact outputs (to compare: USB 3.0 sockets feature only 9 outputs).


The most outstanding physical peculiarity of Type-C is a symmetric connector that …

SilverStone Replenishes Its Nitrogon Series with Two Coolers

SilverStone, a Taiwanese manufacturer of high-end cooling solutions, has recently launched two new coolers codenamed NT01-PRO and NT06-PRO. Both models replenish the Nitrogon series and distinguish themselves by utmost compatibility. Hence, this couple is able to cool down practically all CPU systems developed by AMD and Intel, due to the support of sockets AM2, AM3, FM1, FM2 (AMD) and LGA775, 1155, 1156, 1366, and 2011 (Intel).



Coolers NT01-PRO and NT06-PRO consist of a copper-nickeled base, six heat pipes (6 mm each) and single-section aluminum heatsink. The first model NT01-PRO is delivered without nominal fans and features 140x97x120 mm dimensions. The customer gets the right to decide which fans, 70 mm or 80 mm, will provide more cooling effect to CPU. This cooler will benefit the most if integrated on the rear or top panel of PC chassis.


The second model NT06-PRO features 140x82x139 mm and is delivered with a single 120 mm fan. Its rotational speed is monitored by …

Intel to Release Celeron Ivy Bridge Processors in 2013

CPUs designed under 22 nm technological process are present practically in all Intel product lines but for Intel Celeron and Intel Atom series. This situation is going to change in the first quarter of the coming year, when new Itel Atom Silvermount and Celeron processors of Ivy Bridge generation are going to be introduced. Celeron series will be represented by three models: G1610, G1610T and G1620; they will substitute the items developed under 32 nm process. Moreover, a more advanced technological process will be applied even to the design of budgetary CPUs with the purpose to enhance their performance and power-saving characteristics.



According to the current data, all three Celeron models will be equipped with two cores based on Ivy Bridge micro-architecture, 2 MB cache-memory of the latest level, and with graphics core Intel HD Graphics 2500. They will also employ two-channel DDR3 memory type, operating under a dedicated controller at 1333 MHz frequencies. Nominal CPU and …
