AMD's Pinnacle Ridge Zen+ 12 nm CPUs to Launch on February 2018

A recent AMD roadmap leak showed the company's "tick", process-improved plans for 2018's Zen+, as well as its painter-imbued aspirations with Zen 2 in 2019. Now, there's some new info posted by DigiTimes that's being sourced straight from motherboard makers that points to the company's Pinnacle Ridge launch being set sometime in February 2018.

This information seems to have been delivered to the motherboard makers straight from AMD itself, as a heads-up for when they should be expecting to ramp up production of next-generation chipsets. Sources report that AMD will follow their Summit Ridge, Ryzen launch, with the initial release of Pinnacle 7 in February, followed by the mid-range Pinnacle 5 and entry-level Pinnacle 3 processors in March 2018. DigiTimes also reports that AMD is expecting to see its share of the desktop CPU market return to at least 30% in the first half of 2018 which, coeteris paribus, is more of a simple mathematical progression than clarvoyance.

ID-COOLING Releases SE-207 Twin Tower Air Cooler

ID-COOLING a cooling solution provider focusing on thermal dissipation and fan technology research and production for over 10 years, announced SE-207 Twin Tower Air cooler, featuring a black nickel plated Top Cover, twin tower heatsinks and two cooling fans included. The full cooler is made of 7pcs of heatpipes soldered to the copper base, two sets of aluminum fins, which all covered by a nickel plated top cover, and decorated by uniquely designed heatpipe caps.

Heat dissipation is provided by one 120mm intake fan running at 1300rpmand one PWM 120mm fan (700-1800rpm) in the middle. Fan splitter is included to support 3 fans setup. Extra fan clips are provided too in the box. Universal mounting brackets are included. The latest AMD Ryzen processors are supported. SE-207 is compatible with Intel LGA2066/2011/1366/1150/1151/1155/1156 & AMD AM4/FM2+/FM2/FM1/AM3(+)/AM2(+).

Noctua Announces Two AM4-compatible Low-profile Coolers

Noctua today presented two updates to its range of quiet low-profile CPU coolers. Successors to the award-winning NH-L9a and NH-L12, the new NH-L9a-AM4 and NH-L12S models now support the AM4 socket of AMD's Ryzen processors. Whereas the NH-L9a-AM4 stands a mere 37mm tall, which makes it ideal for use in compact HTPCs or Small Form Factor cases that offer minimum clearance for CPU coolers, the slightly bigger NH-L12S comes equipped with the new NF-A12x15 PWM fan and combines excellent compatibility, surprising efficiency and remarkable flexibility.

"AMD has made a big impact on the market with its Ryzen architecture and the platform will become even more interesting for compact HTPC builds when the first Ryzen-based APUs are introduced next year," says Roland Mossig (Noctua CEO). "We're thus updating two of our award-winning low-profile models to support Ryzen's AM4 socket."

BIOSTAR Announces Racing B350 Motherboards and Radeon RX Vega 56 Graphics Card

BIOSTAR recently released the RADEON RX VEGA 56, which is a must-have for miners with the ability to crank out crazy hash rates for mining, while gamers can expect high performance graphics processor power with the same graphics card. Combined with the BIOSTAR RACING B350 series, which continues to be popular amongst gamers with its price-performance and gaming features, these make up for a great solution for mining during the day and gaming at night.

The Vega 56 has hash rate/power draw ratio that puts it in a class by its own, surpassing that of the RX 580, which was previously the graphics card of choice for mining. With the hype surrounding its mining capabilities, lets not forget that Vega 56 is a top-of-the-line graphics card that includes 56 compute units, 21/10.5 TFLOPS with 8GB of 2048-bit High Bandwidth Memory (HBM2) for performance gaming that gives you the best graphics possible.

Jonsbo Intros the TW Series AIO Liquid CPU Coolers

Jonsbo rolled out the TW-120 and TW-240 all-in-one, closed-loop, liquid CPU coolers. The two are differentiated by radiator sizes - 120 mm x 120 mm, and 240 mm x 120 mm, respectively; and characterized by a rather tall hexagonal pump-block that's illuminated by RGB LEDs. The included 120 mm fans feature RGB LED diodes along fan-frames as well, and lighting on the fans and the block are kept in sync.

You can control the RGB LED color, brightness, and lighting patterns by either plugging the cooler into a standard 4-pin RGB header on your motherboard (and using software such as ASUS Aura Sync or MSI Mystic Light); or use an included module to switch between 7 color presets. The LEDs otherwise support 16.8 million colors. The TW series coolers support most modern CPU socket types, including AM4, AM3(+), FM2(+), LGA2011(v3), LGA2066, and LGA115x.

ASUS Intros TUF B350M-Plus Gaming Motherboard

ASUS introduced its first socket AM4 motherboard bearing the durable TUF branding, the TUF B350M-Plus Gaming. Built in the micro-ATX form-factor, the board draws power from a combination of 24-pin ATX and 8-pin EPS power connectors, conditioning it for the AM4 SoC using a 6-phase VRM. The components that make up the VRM are of a very high grade, enough to warrant TUF branding. The AM4 socket is wired to four DDR4 DIMM slots, supporting up to 64 GB of dual-channel DDR4 memory; and the board's single and reinforced PCI-Express 3.0 x16 slot. The second x16 slot is electrical x4, and wired to the AMD B350 chipset.

Storage connectivity includes one 32 Gb/s M.2 slot, and six SATA 6 Gb/s ports, two of which are directly wired to the SoC. Display connectivity includes one each of HDMI, D-Sub, and DVI. USB connectivity includes two 10 Gb/s USB 3.1 ports (both type-A), eight USB 3.0 ports (six on the rear panel, two by headers). Networking is care of a single 1 GbE interface, driven by a Realtek RTL8111H controller. The onboard audio solution combines a 6-channel Realtek ALC887 CODEC (<90 dBA SNR) with audio-grade capacitors and ground-layer isolation. The board features RGB LED headers. Expect this board to feature a sub-$100 price-tag, while being slightly higher than comparable mATX AMD B350 motherboards due to the TUF value-addition.
