iXBT.com / Digit-Life.com unveils a know-how cooler testing method

Introducing Elbarus, the ultimate Russian CPU

We obtained information that in a just a few days the world will see the new central processing unit developed exclusively by Russian minds and codenamed "Elbarus".

Into Elbarus the developers have implemented the much talked about dual-core architecture compatible with all up-to-date 32-bit and 64-bit microcode from Intel and AMD. The novelty is undoubtedly unique because one core of it fully supports Pentium 4 architecture, while another works perfectly with that of Athlon. As a result, the processor will be produced for both LGA775 and Socket 754/Socket 939 platforms, specific interfaces selectable by a wholesale customer.

The CPU has a special "rail to" bridge that determines what core to handle the code with. Operating systems recognize Elbarus as Pentium 4 EE and Athlon 64 FX at the same time.

The exclusive novelty will go on sale next month with the top rating of +PX4000, but the clock rate information is yet to leak.

iXBT.com / Digit-Life.com unveils a know-how cooler testing method

In our laboratories we have developed and tested the new proprietary cooler testing method based on applying exteremely high temperature (burner flame) to the unfortunate samples we have happened to lay our hands on.

CoolDrop cooler being tort... ehm, tested

During the heating and cooling stages we measure cooler geometrical parameters with high-precision laser interferometers and also consider temperature in various parts of cooler with a number of thermocouple sensors.

This method enables us to find all possible imperfections in cooler design that show up every time in the extreme conditions we carefully create as well as heating and cooling dynamics and other data impossible to obtain with usual boring cooler testing techniques.

Attention: For your safety don´t try to test any coolers ah home!
