MSI works on development on three Mini-ITX motherboards based on chipsets A85, B75, and Z77

During August, MSI will release the two motherboards LGA1155 form-factor Mini-ITX, based on chipset Intel B75 and Z77. The first is positioned as a budget solution, the second is, in addition to support of overclocking Ivy Bridge K factor, will offer enhanced power system, and integrated Wi-Fi adapter and Bluetooth. Before the start of retail sales APU A-Series/Trinity (October) they will be joined by Mini-ITX motherboard based on chipset AMD A85.

From the pair of tiny “motherboards” B75/Z77 the greatest interest is for last one. The full codename of the model — MSI Z77IA-E53.

The upcoming model has seven power phases of processor socket with elements DrMOS and tantalum capacitors, power connector EPS12V 8-pin, two slots for RAM DDR3 (up to 16 GB of RAM) and a slot PCI Express 3.0 x16. Also, there are two SATA ports with a throughput of 3 and 6 Gb / s, single eSATA and mSATA (3 Gb / s). Jack mini-PCIe 5 GT / s is located directly above the mSATA — the original …

Intel Makes a Surprise Launch of Ivy Bridge Processors

The release of the 4th generation Intel Haswell processors made a real stir last week. This turmoil left the launch of several Intel Ivy Bridge processors practically unnoticed. How strange as it might seem, but Intel keeps on supplying its 3rd generation products to comply with the needs of the vast majority of customers. Hence, a set of new CPUs consists of: five Intel Pentium models (G2140, G2120T, G2030T, G2030), three Intel Core models (i3-3245, i3-3250, i3-3250T), and a single Intel Celeron G470 model.

Each Intel Pentium processor features two cores and 3 MB of cache-memory. The nominal clock frequencies fluctuate within the measures of 2.6-3.3 GHz, depending on the model. All the models within the line are equipped with Intel HD graphics core. Intel Pentium G2030T and G2030 support two-channel DDR3 modules with up to 1333 MHz frequency, while their companions – Intel Pentium G2140 and G2120T – support DDR3-1600 MHz modules.

Each Intel Core processor comes with …

Meet Pure Power 9 CM Top Series of PSUs from Be Quiet!

Be Quiet! enters the market with a new series of power supply units, entitled Pure Power 9 CM. The lineup includes models of 400 W, 500 W, 600 W, and 700 W power. All of them boast the implementation of Active Clamp + SR topology with high-quality hardware base. Besides, the manufacturer decided to ditch group mechanism of voltage stabilization; this promoted for more efficiency which index achieves 91%.

High efficiency level allowed Pure Power 9 CM units to receive 80Plus Silver certificate. The 12V bus is divided into two lines with the maximal load capacity. Cooling process is attached to a single low-noise 120-mm fan, based on rifle bearing (100 thousand hours MTBF). Its maximal rotational speed varies within 1060-1680 RPM range.

To continue, Be Quiet! has incorporated into the models all possible security mechanisms, including OPP, SCP, UVP, OCP, and others. The units come with an additional Surge Absorber filter that protects the circuitry from voltage surges. …
