New Custom Liquid Cooling from CoolIT

Calgary, Alberta – September 15, 2009 – CoolIT Systems, the global leader in innovative liquid cooling solutions for high performance computers, announces the WS 240 custom liquid cooling for Nehalem-based processors. Using similar technology to the highly decorated Domino ALC, the WS 240 utilizes a 240mm radiator and two water blocks to provide aggressive liquid cooling performance for both CPUs. This ensures maximum performance gains, reduced system noise, improved reliability, and enhanced longevity of all system components.

So Long CPU Wars. It Was Fun

The Great Chip Wars, as we’ve come to know them, ended this week — courtesy of a new marketing campaign from Advanced Micro Devices.

AMD has decided to sell its products under the Vision banner, a slogan that emphasizes the strengths of its graphics chip instead of promoting the abilities of its CPUs, or traditional workhorse chips. PC makers and retailers will promote three flavors of AMD-based computers, called See, Share and Create models.

Core i5-750 and Core i7-870 Processors Review

Intel is launching a new CPU socket called LGA1156 with a new chipset, P55. The first three CPUs based on this new platform will be Core i5-750 (2.66 GHz), Core i7-860 (2.80 GHz) and Core i7-870 (2.93 GHz), all based on the new "Lynnfield" core. We had the pleasure to receive a Core i5-750 and a Core i7-870 sample from Intel before their launch, so let's take a look on their performance compared to other CPUs from Intel.

Coverage on the new Intel i7 870 & i5 750 CPUs

We've been hearing a lot about the new Core i5/i7 CPU's, and generally we like to reserve our opinion until the test results are in. We've benched the Core i5 750 and Core i7 870 extensively. We've added a bevvy of tests to our benchmarking routine and Core i5/i7 LGA 1156 is looking pretty good.

Intel Core i5 750 Review

The introduction of the Core i7 range of processors late last year was the beginning of the Nehalem family. The processors have had a mixed reception and it is fair to say that although the new series has been impressive performance wise, the pricing was and still is too much for many users. After all, the LGA1366 socket requires not only the processor but also an X58 motherboard and triple channel DDR3 memory.
