Intel will lower prices for old and new SSD-drives

Over time, more and more manufacturers of computer equipment are connected to the production of solid-state drives. Conventional consumer SSD are fairly simple to manufacture and chip NAND flash memory and controllers are always available from proven companies. Of all the manufacturers of SSD for the mass market, Intel maybe has not best reputation, still quite high. Using this, the Corporation of Santa Clara sets high prices of their SSDs, not fearing for the sales.



However, as suggested by experts, the pressure from competitors will still force Intel company

to go for price concessions for customers. Reducing of prices on popular drives series SSD

320, SSD 330 and SSD 520 is expected in August this year. Top products will lose most of

all, but also drives of the entry level, in particular 330-series, will be much more accessible to

consumers.


Below are stated all prices and possible devaluation. Old price is indicated in parentheses.

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) …

Evga Launches One More Overclocked Graphics Card

Evga, a leading American supplier of 3D cards, is going to launch one more graphics card with factory overclocked speeds. A new model is based on Nvidia FeForce GTX 670 adapter and codenamed as Evga GeForce GTX 670 FTW LE. Its design resembles the one implemented in GeForce GTX 670 FTW card, but the main distinction between them is seen in frequency showings. The newbie demonstrates a bit lower frequency index than its predecessor.



Evga GeForce GTX 670 FTW LE is housed on a PCB designed for PCI-e 3.0 x16 bus. This card takes GK104 graphics core with 1344 CUDA cores as the basis; it is developed on Kepler architecture under 28 nm standards. Its inventory also embraces 2GB of GDDR5 memory (256-bit interface). Cooling system is introduced by a 2-slot cooler of active type with a single turbine-like fan. Power subsystem consists of two connection 6-pin sockets and requires a quite efficient PSU (not less than 500W power).


Frequency template looks the following way: GPU runs at …
