Xigmatek Manifests Specifications of Apache III

Xigmatek, a Taiwanese manufacturer of PC cooling solutions, has just promulgated the specifications of its new cooler series entitled Apache III. The series consists of two models only, which differentiate themselves by the casing's material and color. Model CD901 is housed in a silver aluminum casing, while model CD903 – in a black anodized aluminum casing. Both models have been developed specifically for CPU cooling purposes; they are able to support various platforms offered by Intel and AMD: LGA 775, 1155, 1156 (Intel), Socket AM2 and later (AMD).

Both models in Apache III series are equipped with a voluminous aluminum heatsink and 92 mm fan with half-transparent orange ribs. The fan is based on Long Life bearing and features PWM facility that allows for the adjustment of fan rotational speed. The speed span variates between 1200-2500 rpm, depending on the CPU temperature and loading. The noise level does not outreach the measures of twenty dB.

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.
