EK managed to add an “active back panel” to the water block for the video card

Published

on

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

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.
