Cougar GXD Digital PSU Lets You Tweak Output Voltages

Cougar's new GXD line of high-end PSUs may not be the first to offer software based control, but it could well be the first to let you tinker with output domains such as 3.3V and +12V.

Apart from electric control, the software lets you monitor the PSU's temperature, and control its fan-speed curve in relation to temperatures and load. It also lets you monitor the PC's input power and power output, and efficiency in real-time.

Intel "Lynx Point" 8-series Chipset Detailed, Completely SATA 6 Gb/s

Intel "Lynx Point" 8-series chipset, which will form the foundation of 4th Generation Core processors in the LGA1150 package, codenamed "Haswell", was detailed in a leaked company slide. A slightly older report this week focused on Haswell chips having DirectX 11.1 graphics, and a reorganized display output logic that sees digital display outputs being wired to the processor package, while analog display outputs being routed to the chipset. This chipset talks to the processor's embedded graphics controller over a slightly less functional Flexible Display Interface (FDI).

Lynx Point chipset is a platform controller hub (PCH), much like all the Intel client-platform chipsets released since P55. A crude way to define its function would be to call it a "glorified southbridge", which handles all the connectivity of the system, while lacking the main PCI-Express root complex of the system to which graphics cards are ideally connected, as that's relocated to the CPU package. The PCH does have a narrower 8-lane PCIe hub, but to wire out x1 and x4 expansion slots, and onboard controllers. The Lynx Point chipset connects to the processor primarily over DMI, although the slide doesn't detail the DMI bandwidth. Most likely, it's similar to Cougar Point's 4 GB/s. Lynx Point also lacks a supplementary 4 GB/s PCIe link from the processor that's found on X79 chipset.
