Sharkoon Unveils WPM V2 Power Supplies

Sharkoon Technologies GmbH has expanded its line of PC products with a new series of power supply units, codenamed WPM V2. The series comprises four ATX V2.3 models of 700 W, 600 W, 500 W, and 400 W capacity. All the new-comers are peculiar by a high efficiency level (more than 80%) and a partially modular design. The company promises to release the series into the European market in the short run. Presumably, the retail price will make up 39.99 EUR.



Sharkoon WPM V2 is equipped with all necessary cables to provide sufficient power to the key system components. This list includes one 24-pin connector, one 4+4-pin connector, two 6+2-pin connectors, one floppy connector, six SATA connectors, and five PATA connectors. All PSUs employ a single +12V bus, accompanied by Active PFC. Cooling of internal components is assigned to a low-noise 140 mm fan that efficiently dissipates heat.


One of the most striking peculiarities is reduced power consumption. Herein, in standby mode the …

Promising Speed Forecasts for AMD Radeon 8000 Sea Islands

AMD is continuing its work on the new GPU generation codenamed ‘Sea Islands’. The new series is prognosticated to be released in the coming winter. All the products with this GPU will be branded Radeon 8000. AMD manufacturers claim that their new graphic processing units will be 40% more efficient due to the implemented advanced technologies. There is not so much news about the future GPU architecture, although cardinal changes are barely possible.



Sea Islands chips will be equipped with 5.1 billion transistors as compared with the current 4.3 billion items applied in the products. This augmentation will facilitate the increment of efficiency. The chips will be developed according to the already tried-and-proven 28 nm technological requirements. The increase of transistors is not as large due to the adherence to the ascribed norms. It should be underlined that the implementation of the old technologies does not imply the considerable warming up of the chips; the developments …

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 …
