Micron to Carry Out the Production of TLC Memory Next Year

Memory market, similar to other industries, undergoes certain changes and updates from time to time. Therefore, memory manufacturers are currently trying to comply their production with two major tendencies: considerable drop in demand for RAM, employed basically in desktop PCs, and simultaneous growth of demand for solid-state drives, employed in compact tablets and mobile devices. Besides, the latter is developed at lightning speed.



Micron, one of the leading memory manufacturers, feels like no one else all the changes and fluctuations in the market. Its quarterly reports witness about the relentless drop in demand for DRAM (9% drop at average) for the report period. At the same time, increase in SSD segment is estimated at 5% at average. Sales volume of NOR memory type did not outlive serious changes.


According to the preliminary data, Micron is going to carry out the production of memory on TLC microchips, manufactured under 20 nm technological process. The assumed …

Spire Showcases New Cylinder-Shaped Swirl IV CPU Cooler

Spire is going to release a new extraordinary cooling solution: a cylinder-shaped CPU cooler, entitled Swirl IV. It is targeting Intel processors for Socket 2011/1366/115x/775 and AMD FM1/FM2/AM2/AM3 platforms with the maximum TDP level of 130 W. The new-comer has received RoHS and CE certification that proves its environmentally-friendly nature. An official release is postponed to January 2015.



Spire Swirl IV features 131x125x62 mm dimensions and weighs 690 g. Its heatsink consists of 45 aluminum fins, pierced by three copper zinc-plated U-shaped heatpipes (8 mm). Inside the heatsink one can find a 60 mm fan with blue LED backlit. Its rotational speed is controlled by PWM technology so that the blades could run between 600 RPM up to 2000 RPM.


The fan is equipped with a slide bearing, estimated for 50.000 hours of fool-proof operation. It is powered by means of a 4-pin connector, ensuring up to 83.12 CFM airflow at 26 dB noise. Besides, at the highest rotational speed the …

Asus to Release Entry-Level Radeon R7 250 Graphics Card

Asus has added a new entry-level graphics card based on Radeon R7 250 adapter to its inventory. Codenamed R7250-OC-2GD3, it is predestined to be employed in corporate and multimedia systems, which are bound to support graphics interface of various applications, play back video, edit photos, and to start unexacting games. The model features a bright design and some remarkable facilities that promise to make work and entertainment experience a delight.



Asus Radeon R7 250 is based on 28 nm GCN chip (AMD Radeon R7 250) that contains 384 stream processors. It runs at the nominal 1060 MHz frequency but can be overclocked to 1110 MHz; that makes 60 MHz more if compared with the etalon adapter. Memory subsystem is introduced by 2 GB of DDR3 memory chips with 128-bit rail. Their nominal clock frequency starts at 900 MHz with the possibility to reach 1800 MHz effective margin.


This graphics card employs a modified PCB that comes with Super Alloy Power hardware base. All the included …
