SilverStone Teases Sound-Dampening Kublai KL07 Chassis

SilverStone has found a way to reduce the noise level, produced by the multi-fan PC cases. Its new Kublai KL07 chassis is a true acknowledgement of the fact that cooling can be silent. The model’s side panels are made of steel, coated in special foam with wave-shape ornaments; this foam promotes for sound-dampening characteristics.

SilverStone Kublai KL07 supports the installation of micro-ATX/ATX motherboards with the maximum of 7 expansion slots. The chassis features 6 seats for the mounting of drives; three of them might be taken by 3.5-inch items. Unfortunately, there is no space for the integration of 5.25-inch drives.

Internal layout provides for the mounting of quite long video cards (up to 389 mm), standard ATX PS/2 power supply units (140-200 mm in length) and quite high CPU coolers (up to 163 mm); if there is need, it’s possible to include a 172 mm high cooler. Cooling system embraces three pre-installed 140-mm fans; still, there are three more seats for the …

Biostar Unveils A68N-2100 Motherboard for Budget-Oriented Customers

Biostar Microtech has gladdened its budget-oriented customers by the release of a new small-sized motherboard, entitled A68N-2100. This mini-ITX model is elaborated on a two-core hybrid AMD E1-2100 APU (Jaguar core, Kabini platform) with 1 GHz clock frequency. It is accompanied by an integrated Radeon HD 8210 graphics that supports DirectX 11.1 technology. All devotees of Biostar’s innovations might acquire the item for about $50.

Biostar A68N-2100 is developed on AMD A68 chipset that supports APU passive cooling by means of a compact heatspreader. The implemented APU is characterized by low power consumption: in ordinary work conditions it consumes not more than 9 W power. The PCB accommodates two DIMM slots for DDR3 memory modules with the maximal frequencies of 1333 MHz and the ultimate capacity of 16 GB.

Expansion facilities are introduced by only one PCIe slot (2.0 x16). Storage options are realized due a pair of SATA III 6 Gb/sec ports, whereas network facilities …

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; …
