APU AMD A10-4600M Review

Intel and AMD companies have established a good reputation for providing efficient hardware solutions for all customer groups. Each new product introduced by the two companies enters the top sales ranks and this promotes for the competition. AMD has recently produced a new APU solution based on Trinity architecture with graphics module VLIW4 and called it AMD A10-4600M. This model can boast the whole spectrum of improvements and advanced features as compared with its predecessor APU Llano, and is intended to beat its rival Intel in efficiency and performance.



Trinity Architecture


CPU Trinity is based on Piledriver micro architecture which superseded Bulldozer from AMD. The distinctive feature of Piledriver is that it’s primarily integrated in a mobile APU. Quad-core Trinity chips utilize two Bulldozer modules, each of which is equipped with two execution cores. Each APU module employs 2 MB of L2 cache, so the entire module architecture approximates to 4 MB of L2 cache; …

Meet Self-Purified D.F.Vegas Fans from Enermax

Enermax has enlarged its lineup of fans with D.F.Vegas series. The series consists of two models: the D.F.Vegas & the D.F.Vegas Duo. The key differentiation between the two solutions lies in the current intensity as well as LED backlights. The first new-comer is equipped with 12 blue diodes, while the second model houses 12 red and 12 green diodes.



Enermax D.F.Vegas fans boast the implementation of self-purification technology – Dust Free Rotation (DFR). During the first ten seconds of operation the fan rotates contrary clockwise and then returns to standard rotational mode. That is how dust and litter is removed from the blades. If there is a need in manual cleansing, the blades can be easily detached.


Both fans are designed on Twister Bearing with MTBF index of 160 thousand hours. The frame accommodates a single 4-pin connector which supports PWM technology. Hence, it’s possible to limit the maximal rotation speed by 1100/1300/1500 RPM by means of a dedicated …

Thermalright Shows up a Hard-Hitting Archon IB-E X2 Cooler

Thermalright is about to release a new ‘tower’ CPU cooler, codenamed Archon IB-E X2. Featuring 155x106x170 mm dimensions, the model supports Intel LGA 2011/115x and AMD FM1/AM2+/AM3+/FM2+ platforms. The launch date is on hold, though the recommended price might rise up 65 EUR.



Thermalright Archon IB-E X2 consists of a voluminous aluminum heatsink with 43 thin pins, which are pierced by eight U-shape nickel-plated heatpipes, and a polished copper base also with a nickel-plated coverage.


The framework is replenished by two 140 mm fans Thermalright TY-141; they are thought to support PWM technology that promotes for speed variation from 900 RPM to 1300 RPM. The fan blades produce up to 74 CFM airflow, consuming not more than 2.4 W power. Average noise level fluctuates within the measures of 17-21 dB.


Moreover, the vendor equips the cooler with a brand thermal compound — Thermalright Chill Factor III. The latter transcends common Chill Factor item in terms of heat …
