AMD launches thermal solutions

0 comments

AMD has launched new thermal solutions, including the flagship AMD Wraith Cooler, as well as the new AMD A10-7860K and new AMD Athlon X4 845 desktop processors.
Designed for the consumer who cares about how their desktop PC runs, sounds, and looks, AMD now offers new thermal solutions that generate less than one-tenth the noise of their predecessors – running at a near-silent 39 decibels, about as quiet as a library.
The new AMD Wraith Cooler combines near-silent operation with unique styling via a sleek fan shroud and LED illumination. Providing superb cooling, the new design delivers 34% more airflow and 24% more surface area for heat dissipation[iv] than its predecessor.
Quiet, efficient and an incredible value, the new AMD A10-7860K APU is powered by four CPU cores clocked at 4.0GHz turbo boost and eight GPU cores with integrated Radeon R7 processor graphics running at 757MHz to enable smooth play of popular online games like Dota 2, League of Legends, and Counter Strike: Global Offensive. The A10-7860K is the first unlocked desktop A10 processor to feature 65W TDP (Thermal Design Power) and includes a near-silent thermal solution rated at 95W TDP to ensure quiet operation. In addition, the AMD A10-7860K supports AMD FreeSync technology that puts an end to choppy gameplay and broken frames with fluid, artifact-free performance at virtually any framerate.
“Customers can build a capable, near-silent online gaming PC in a surprisingly small form factor for an unexpectedly low price” says Kevin Lensing, corporate vice-president and GM: client business unit at AMD. “The low power requirements mean you can build a tiny system perfect for a small dorm room, for use in the living room as a home theatre PC (HTPC), and portable enough to take to a LAN party.”
The AMD Athlon X4 845 is the first desktop processor featuring the AMD “Excavator” x86 architecture technology. The quad-core CPU is clocked at 3.8GHz boost and offers the highest IPC (instructions per clock) AMD x86 performance yet. When paired with a discrete graphics card, the AMD Athlon X4 845 enables great gaming and multi-threaded processing performance for an attractive price. The new Athlon X4 845 is a 65W TDP processor that comes with a new AMD 95W thermal solution to provide excellent cooling performance and near-silent operation.
