EK is holding a virtual EK EXPO at CES 2021, presenting new products and developments. Among them is “the first adequate solution for active cooling of the rear panel”. According to the manufacturer, it can be easily integrated into the cooling system without requiring awkward soft hose connections. In fact, this is the second water block located on the rear panel.
Describing the novelty, EK compares a PCB to a heatsink, since the copper paths are good at absorbing the heat generated by the components located on it. By removing heat from the board, you can reduce the overall temperature of all components on the board, even those that are not directly cooled.
In turn, any additional cooling is very welcome as it allows more overclocking of the GPU. It is especially advisable to use additional cooling in the case of flagship video cards with video memory located on the back of the PCB, such as the RTX 3090.
The active back panel is installed on the board via a thermal interface, which gives an additional plus in the form of noise reduction. The fact is that the gasket dampens the oscillations of the inductors, which are heard as a whistle. What’s more, as the panel becomes stronger and more massive due to the water block, it absorbs vibration better.
How soon the described innovation can be found in production cards, EK does not specify.
When the new Intel processor is really better than its predecessor. Core i7-1370P parameters appeared
Intel has not yet introduced most of the Raptor Lake family, including mobile CPUs. But today the Core i7-1370P lit up on the Web.
Geekbench indicates that this is a 14-core processor with support for 20 threads, that is, we are talking about six large cores and eight small ones. It is worth noting here that this is a configuration identical to the Core i7-1280P, but the Core i7-1270P has 14 cores. That is, the new Intel CPU will be better than its predecessor, including in terms of the number of cores.
In addition, the frequencies will become higher. The maximum frequency will reach 5 GHz versus 4.8 GHz for the models of the Alder Lake line mentioned above. But the base frequency relative to the Core i7-1280P will increase by 100 MHz, up to 1.9 GHz, but relative to the Core i7-1270P it will decrease by 300 MHz.
24 inches, 165Hz, 120% sRGB, 1ms, very inexpensive. Redmi G24 gaming monitor drops to almost $80 in China
Inexpensive gaming monitor Redmi G24, which was released only in September this year, has already fallen in price. In China, on the official website of Xiaomi, the price of the device is almost $80.
It was released for a suggested retail price of $110, but early adopters were able to pre-order it for $85.
Redmi G24 features a 23.8-inch VA panel with Full HD resolution and 165Hz refresh rate. Declared support for technology DC Dimming, Nvidia G-Sync and AMD FreeSync. The monitor provides coverage of 120% of the sRGB color space.
The matrix response time is 1 ms, and the contrast ratio is 3500:1. Redmi G24 is equipped with built-in speakers. It received DisplayPort and HDMI connectors.
OLED monitors are becoming more and more affordable. LG asks $1,700 for 45-inch 240Hz UltraGear 45GR95QE
LG has revealed the cost of the UltraGear 45GR95QE monitor, presented in August: the new product is estimated at $1,700. Pre-orders will begin to be accepted on December 12, real sales will start on December 28.
The UltraGear 45GR95QE features a curved (0.8m curvature diameter) 45-inch OLED panel with 3440 x 1440 resolution, 240Hz frame rate, 0.3ms pixel response time and 98% coverage of the DCI-P3 color space.
The monitor supports Picture-in-Picture and Picture-by-Picture modes, is endowed with a pair of HDMI 2.1 ports, a DisplayPort 1.4 connector, and a USB 3.0 port hub. The device is compatible with AMD FreeSync Premium and NVIDIA G-SYNC technologies.
