Noctua NH-U12S redux processor cooling system presented

Published

Noctua has introduced the first redux processor cooling system. As you know, the manufacturer includes popular fan models in a simplified version in the redux line. The manufacturer announced its intention to release the first redux processor cooling system in the second half of February. Then he published a snippet of her image, promising that it would be “a proven processor cooler, limited to the bare essentials.” And so it turned out. The NH-U12S model, produced since 2013, was chosen as the initial one. By the way, the first redux fan was released in the same year.

Inheriting a lot from the original model, the NH-U12S redux features a fan. The dimensions of the product remained the same – 158 x 125 x 71 mm, but the weight became less – 755 g versus 775 g. The copper base and four copper heat pipes passed through it are nickel-plated. A radiator in the form of a block of aluminum plates is fixed to the tubes. The radiator is equipped with an NF-P12 redux-1700 PWM fan, the rotation speed of which is regulated by PWM in the range of 450-1700 rpm (the fan of the original model had a control range of 300-1500 rpm). The maximum speed corresponds to a capacity of 120.2 m3 / h and a noise level of 25.1 dBA.

SecuFirm2 is compatible with Intel LGA 2066, LGA 2011, LGA 2011-3, LGA 1200, LGA 115x and AMD AM4 processor sockets. The heat sink base is pre-coated with NT-H1 thermal paste.

If desired, you can increase the performance of the NH-U12S redux using the NA-FK1 kit, which includes a second NF-P12 redux-1700 PWM fan, clips and anti-vibration pads, Y-cable and adapters to reduce noise by limiting the maximum rotational speed.

The NH-U12S redux processor cooling system costs 49.9 euros, the NA-FK1 kit costs 16.9 euros. Sales have already started.

There are data on the performance of the mobile processor Intel Core i9-12900HK

Published

on

A screenshot of a closed laptop test on a 12th generation Intel Core processor has appeared on the network. This is the Core i9-12900HK processor, which will presumably lead the Alder Lake-P lineup. Its configuration includes 14 cores, which are capable of executing up to 20 threads simultaneously. The base frequency of the Core i9-12900H processor is 2.9 GHz.

The processor has the highest performance of any known mobile processor released this year, including Intel Tiger Lake-H45, AMD Zen3 Mobile, and even the Apple M1 Max. Intel’s Alder Lake-P mobile processor series is expected to be unveiled alongside Arc Alchemist graphics cards, possibly at CES 2022.

Intel Core i5-12600K is much faster than the Core i9-11900K in the CPU-Z test and 46.7% faster than the Ryzen 5 5600X

New data on the Intel Core i5-12600K processor of the Alder Lake family has appeared on the web. The CPU was tested in the CPU-Z benchmark in two states: standard and overclocked. And even at nominal frequencies, this processor turned out to be faster than the top model of the Rocket Lake-S line – Core i9-11900K.

The unclocked Core i5-12600K scores 746 points in a single-threaded test and 7058 points in a multi-threaded one. The overclocked performance is, of course, even higher – about 790 and 7200 points, respectively. It turns out that even in the base, the Core i5-12600K is faster than the current flagship Core i9-11900K – it has 682 and 6563 points, respectively.

Also, the Core i5-12600K is much faster than the Ryzen 5 5600X – by 19.5% in a single-threaded test and by 46.7% in a multi-threaded one. However, this raises the question – why is the 10-core Intel CPU compared to the 6-core AMD CPU? Nevertheless, such a comparison is quite acceptable, because, according to preliminary data, the cost of the Core i5-12600K will be at the level of the Ryzen 5 5600X. And this is where AMD and its most popular Ryzen 5000 processor line can be hit hard.

The most powerful Nvidia graphics card for mining turned out to be significantly more expensive than the GeForce RTX 3090. Nvidia CMP 170HX with a performance of 164 MH / s went on sale

We have already written today about the most efficient Nvidia video card for mining, and now we are talking about the most powerful Nvidia video card for mining cryptocurrencies – CMP 170HX. Rumors about this model have been around for a long time, the characteristics are known, but now it is on sale and, finally, the price has become known.

The Nvidia CMP 170HX has appeared in the Vipera online store catalog and is being offered for an impressive $ 4,300. And we are not talking about single sales – there are about 230 video cards in stock.

Despite the high cost, the CMP 170HX definitely makes sense. Firstly, the video card provides a large hash rate – 164 MH / s. Even the GeForce RTX 3090 is not capable of this. This is due to the fact that the CMP 170HX has 8 GB of HBM2e memory at 1458 MHz with a 4096-bit bus. The memory bandwidth is 1.493 TB / s. Secondly, power consumption is lower than that of the same GeForce RTX 3090 – TDP is 250 W (additional power is supplied through one eight-pin connector). So the CMP 170HX is more efficient at mining than the RTX 3090, but it also costs about $ 1,000 more.

The CMP 170HX does not have video outputs and is not intended for gaming, but miners are not interested in the game. But the fact that the video card is accompanied by a 1 year warranty is interesting. It was previously stated that Nvidia CMP 3D cards have a limited warranty of only three months. But here either an exception was made for the CMP 170HX, or Nvidia revised its warranty policy, or the seller assumes an additional 9 months of warranty. In any case, a year of warranty for a purely mining video card, which will definitely overclock and work at the same time in 24/7 mode, is strong.
