Processors Intel Haswell to Rival Accelerator NVIDIA Tesla

Intel Corporation has the intentions to introduce DDR4 memory into their server processors of Haswell series. The launch of such technological approach is planned for the 2014, however the developments in this sphere have already started. Intel’s server solutions will become a part of Grantley platform and the samples of their new series will allegedly be announced next autumn. The preview of new processors makes it clear that some of the chips will be distinguished by the increased heat generation performance which will reach 160 W.

Hence, 16-core processors Haswell-EP will rival parallel computing accelerator NVIDIA Tesla but not AMD server solutions. Intel is going to provide various working frequency options and options with different number of active cores. At the same time, TDP will fluctuate within ranges of 160, 145, 135, and 120 W. In its turn, accelerator NVIDIA Tesla, which is based on GK110 processor, consumes approximately 300 W.

Power Supply Unit Hiper Type M900 Review

The market of power supply units is full of beneficial options from a range of designers. Some of them are resplendent with new products rather often, the others release the units rather seldom but right on target. Hiper belongs exactly to the last mentioned designers, rejoicing its potential customers with only high-quality solutions. PSU Hiper Type M900 is a worthy representative of M series that is known to be efficient in the majority of operational modes. Let’s review this model in more details.

General Information

Hiper Type M900 is delivered in a small-sized cardbox with a convenient handle. The unit itself is housed in a matte black case with a spacious ventilation grid covering a high-performance fan. All key specifications can be found at the unit’s case: +12VDC rail is able to handle 900 W power at 75 A; the correlation of power on +12VDC rail with the total power makes up the maximal 1.0 index.

Intel may release six-core processor Core i7-3970X EE

The top board platform Intel LGA2011 is not yet very demanded among customers, mainly due to the high prices of components — motherboard with chipset X79 and processors Intel Sandy Bridge-E. However, it should be remembered that the models LGA1366 also initially were desirable for only enthusiasts with a tight purse, and only in 2010, with cheaper motherboards and the release of new, more powerful processors, Core i7, (Bloomfield / Westmere) sales statistics of LGA1366 components rose considerably.

It is possible that consumer interest in the LGA2011 platform will also grow this and especially next year. Part of this will contribute to six-core Core i7-3970X Extreme Edition which is expected to be released. Core i7-3970X EE has a clock speed of 3.4 or 3.5 GHz stock, which is in turbo mode increases up to 4.0 GHz. Other features of the model coincide with those of the 3960X:

— Process technology: 32 nm Sandy Bridge-E architecture;

— The number of cores / streams: …
