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CPU Trinity is based on Piledriver micro architecture which superseded Bulldozer from AMD.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; …

The Beelink AP42 Mini PC Is Equipped With Intel Pentium N4200 CP

The Beelink BT7 mini PC’s successor is the Beelink AP42 model, which possesses the same low case, though is based on an updated platform. At present the PC is operated by the 4-core Intel Pentium N4200 CPU, representing the modern Apollo Lake generation.



Pentium N4200 includes four processor cores, featuring the 2.5 GHz frequency and the GPU HD Graphics 505. The motherboard is meant for the 4 GB DDR3 memory, however, there is a prospect for larger volumes. Due to the presence of an M.2 socket users can add a fully functional SSD to the customary 64 GB eMMC module.


The Gigabit Ethernet network port is enhanced with a two-band Wi-Fi 802.11ac adapter, which estimated capacity is equal to 1,167 Mbps. Among other Beelink AP42 interface details one can pick out three USB 3.0 ports, an HDMI 1.4 video output, a headset connector, as well as an SD memory card slot.


The mini PC will be available this month at the rough price of $210.

Scythe Showcases Asymmetric Byakko CPU Cooler

Scythe, a well-known Japanese manufacturer of cooling solutions, is about to release an uncommon CPU cooler. Entitled Byakko, the Tower model features an asymmetric design: an aluminum heatsink is superseded backwards against the nickel-plated base; such framework ensures an ideal compatibility of the cooler with high RAM modules. Moreover, the item is only 130-mm high, so it can fit any PC case.



Scythe Byakko is reconcilable with the majority of modern platforms, including Intel Socket LGA 1366/115x/775 & AMD Socket FM1/FM2/FM2+/aM2/AM2+/AM3/AM3+. The cooler accommodates three nickel-plated 6-mm heat pipes, replenished by a single 92-mm fan. The Scythe Slip Stream 92 PWM is based on a sleeve bearing. Thanks to the PWM support, the fan is able to rotate within 300-2300 RPM range. Therewith, the maximal noise level does not surpass the margin of 28.26 dBA (the minimal index is 7.2 dBA).


The model is able to produce 6.70-46.55 CFM airflow, depending on the rotational speed. …
