AMD-derived GlobalFoundries broke ground today on what will become the company's leading-edge manufacturing facility and (according to it, at least) the largest and most technically-advanced fab in the United States. The $4.2 billion facility should start production within two years, and is expected to begin volume production in 2012. Currently, GlobalFoundries predicts the plant will debut using 300mm wafers and 28nm process technology, only to transition to 22nm as it enters volume production. Those numbers frankly seem optimistic. Over the last nine years, it's taken AMD two years or more to... Read more...

Thermaltake is ready to formally introduce its Xpressar RCS100 Micro Refrigeration Cooling System, which was first shown off at Computex in June. If you haven't yet seen the Xpressar RCS100, it is somewhat similar to the famed VapoChill Vapor Phase-Change Cooling systems we have shown you a few occasions in the past, but Thermaltake's offering differs in that it utilizes a DC Inverter type micro compressor to cool the PC. In fact, Thermaltake is claiming to be the first to use such a design.To quote Thermaltake, the company summarized the Xpressar as "... a micro vapor-compression refrigeration... Read more...

When going to a party, it's customary to not show up empty handed.  Depending on the type of party, a cake, pastries, a bottle of wine or maybe even your favorite beer are all acceptable items to bring as a gesture to the host, thanking them for the invitation.  When it comes to a LAN party, however, the term 'customary' can take on a totally different meaning. With LAN Parties, it's more about the guests getting to show off their system's performance, their superior gaming skills or the beauty of their custom built dream machines.  Yes, there...

Hello Everyone. Now that the long holiday weekend is behind us, and we've all woken from our involuntary tryptophan naps, we thought it was time to get some fresh content posted! Today at HotHardware, we have an article posted where we evaluate the features and performance of two high-end power supply units, the modular Thermaltake Toughpower 750Q and the beastly 1.1KW Tagan Turbojet TG1100-U95. Here's a snip from the piece: "Power -- It's one of the most important factors for peak system performance and stability. Yet, the PSU is still... Read more...
Power -- It's one of the most important factors for peak system performance and stability. Yet, the PSU is still an often overlooked PC component. While not as sexy as a high-end motherboard, video card or RAM, the power supplying these components is just as important as the components themselves.  With the heightened demands of the latest computing hardware, ample power is an increasingly important consideration for performance and stability. Dual GPU configurations are now commonplace and CPUs are sporting multiple cores, all of which place greater demand on the PSU.  Throw... Read more...

There are only a select few PC enthusiasts who like to show off their hardware more than gamers do. With all the questing, spying, and fragging going on, they still find the time to appreciate the machine that grants them such pleasure. As you know though, these days, any old box just won't do.

While we've reviewed some great cases over the years here at HotHardware, producing a case that receives a gamer's approval has it's own set of special requirements.... Read more...
The uniqueness of these CPU Coolers makes the article. They're not kidding when they say "wild", especially when it comes to the silent coolers.
