NVIDIA Publishes Info on GeForce GT 440

NVIDIA posted the details on the yet another graphics card based on the Fermi GPU supporting DirectX 11. This went without a press release, because the solution is only meant for OEM shipments.

GeForce GT 440 has a short full-height PCB, has a small active cooler and, naturally, occupies only one expansion slot. Other features include 594/1189/800 (or 900) MHz clock rates, 144 CUDA cores, 192-bit bus, 1.5GB (or 3GB) GDDR3 and hardware SLI support. The TDP is 56W.

As you can see on the photos, the card has HDMI, D-Sub and DVI interfaces.

Thermalright Introduces Archon CPU Cooler

Thermalright has just introduced the new Archon CPU cooler for sockets 775/1156/1366/AM2/AM3.

The novelty comes with a Thermalright TY-140 PWM fan (21dBA noise at max. rpm) and a tube of CF III thermal grease. Fan latches are compatible with both 140mm and 120mm fans.

Heatsink specs:

  • Dimensions: 155mm x 53mm x 170mm
  • Weight: 806g (excluding fan and mounting brackets)
  • Heatpipes: 6 x 6mm
  • Copper base: C1100 pure copper nickel-plated, mirror-polished
  • Pressure is adjustable for Intel sockets (40~70 lbs).

Fan specs:

  • Dimensions: 160mm x 140mm x 26.5mm
  • Weight: 140g
  • Speed: 900~1300 RPM (PWM-controlled)
  • Noise: 19~21 dBA
  • Airflow: 56~73 CFM
  • Connector: 4-pin

AMD Fusion APU Codenamed 'Llano' Demonstrated

At the 6th Annual AMD Technical Forum & Exhibition (TFE) 2010, AMD today showcased for its ecosystem partners the first public demonstration of the forthcoming AMD Fusion Accelerated Processing Unit (APU) codenamed 'Llano', designed for notebook, ultrathin and desktop PCs. AMD demonstrated the accelerated single-chip processing muscle of Llano by simultaneously processing three separate compute and graphics-intensive workloads.

The Llano APU demo showed three compute-intensive workloads simultaneously on Microsoft Windows 7, including calculating the value of Pi to 32 million decimal places, and decoding HD video from a Blu-ray disc. Running concurrent to the CPU and HD video playback applications, Microsoft's nBody DirectCompute application is shown achieving around 30 GFLOPS (as reported in the application) a relative measure of the available capacity to post-process video during playback, play a DirectX11 game, or assist the CPU cores to accelerate a non-graphics application. The demonstration represents a preview of Llano's raw compute power enabling new levels of experience computing that AMD aims to bring to mainstream PC users in 2011.
