     GPU(s) power supply for TT

    Fortron won't be the only one to announce a power supply designed to feed graphic cards (see this news). Thermaltake just announced a similar product, the Purepower Power Express 250W. This specialised power supply fits in a 5" 1/4 bay and connects to the main power supply to synchronize to the computer's initialization … and of course to the graphic cards.

    It will provide up to 250W via two PCI-Express connector. It will be enough for the most high end SLI/CrossFire configurations (two X1900 XTX requires 240W but a part of this power is provided by the PCI-Express slot). The Purepower is cooled down by a 40 mm fan that spins at 4000 Rpm when the power supply provides 100W and a little over 5500 Rpm from 200 W.

    Like the Fortron model, there is still one unknown criterion, the price of the power supply. This product will only be interesting if buying it will make you save money compared to a more powerful main power supply.

     Opteron dual core at 2.6 GHz

    AMD today announced three new models in the Dual-Core AMD Opteron processor family. The 185, 285 and 885 will be respectively intended for mono, bi and quadri/octo processor computers. In comparison with the previous version, these processors' frequency is increased to 2.6 GHz just like the Athlon 64 FX-60.

    The 285 and 885 version are announced respectively at $1051 and $2149 as compared to $851 and $1514 for the 280 and 880 versions clocked at 2.4 GHz (their prices haven't been reduced at the occasion of this announcement). The two processors will be available in the days to come and the 185, which price is still unknown, within the next 30 days.

     DDR2-1066 for Corsair

    Corsair just announced the release of two new memory modules. The demonstration of these products will be made on their stand at CeBIT.

    The first one, the DDR1 solution, is certified at 275 MHz (DDR-550) and with a CAS 3 latency (we don't know the other latencies yet but they will probably be of 3-4-4-8). The innovation here is on the memory module size. It is of 1 GB. The TWINX kit, TWINX2048-4400PRO, reaches 2 GB.

    The second memory module is even faster. It is DDR2 memory certified at 533 MHz or DDR2-1066 or a PC2-8500 memory module. Up until today, the fastest DDR2 modules were certified at 500 MHz. Here again, only a couple of details have been unveiled and we don't know yet the latencies or even the voltage requires to reach such a frequency.
