Intel Broadwell CPUs will Get BGA Casing

The Internet community is energetically discussing unofficial info concerning the future Intel's Broadwell processors. According to the yet unacknowledged data, Intel will branch off from currently traditional LGA casings in favor to a more advanced BGA solution. At present all CPUs designed by Intel specifically for desktop platforms feature LGA (Land Grid Array) casings which allow the users to upgrade their systems without any hassle. On LGA implementation, the chip is housed within a socket and contacts with the motherboard. As a result, the user might change one chip to the other only with similar set of contacts.



The launch of Intel Broadwell processors, which is planned for 2014, might dramatically change the situation for customers. Most probably Intel will refuse from LGA casings and accommodate all new CPUs in BGA ones, marking the change of Haswell generation to the future Broadwell generation developed under 14 nm technological process. BGA (Ball Grid Array) …

Novelties by FSP – Windale 6 and Windale 4 Coolers – Are Compatible with All Modern Platforms

FSP, a well-known power units vendor, releases two new CPU cooling systems, namely the Windale 6 and Windale 4.



Windale 6 has 6 copper heat pipes and an array of appropriately sized aluminium fins. The Windale 4 construction includes 4 heat pipes and a diminished stack of fins. The products are of 240 and 180 W heat sink capability respectively.


Both cooling systems have one 120 mm fan with a friction bearing. Due to the PWM technology support the rotary speed can be adjusted in the range of 600–1,600 rpm. The ultimate air flow rate equals to 60 CFM (102 m³ per hour) at the 32 dBA noise level. The master model’s fan is supplied with blue LED- backlighting. The specialties from FSP are compatible with all modern platforms, including AMD AM4 and Intel LGA2011(-3).


Windale 6 weighs 823 g and features the 122 х 110 х 165 mm dimensions; and Windale 4 weighs 620 g and is of 122 х 83 х 158 mm size. These products are already available to official retailers. The …

HP Employs Processors AMD Athlon II X2 221 and Sempron X2 198

The release of hybrid AMD processors of A series was announced about a year ago, however, their actual appearance in the market was delayed for a few months. It is a well-known fact that a part of those processors for Socket FM1 platform has got idle graphics block; this part of processors has been codenamed Athlon and Sempron. The two processor models from this series Athlon II X2 221 and Sempron X2 198 can be currently found in PCs manufactured by HP company.



Both processors have been observed in the list of specifications of desktop PCs delivered by HP: Athlon II X2 221 is employed in HP Pavillon p6-1169cx and p6-1226cn models, while Sempron X2 198 is employed in HP Pavillion p6-1152cx, 1230cx, 1231cx, and 1159cx models. The major peculiarity of such technological solution is that HP PCs with those processors are delivered only to the Chinese market.


Two-core Athlon II X2 221 operates at 2.8 GHz frequency, and accommodates 1 MB cache memory of the second level. It is …
