NVIDIA GeForce MX150 Revealed Through HP Envy 13

Yesterday, 02:17 PM

The NVIDIA MX150 is the latest mobile GPU from the company, released without much fanfare as part of the new HP Envy 13 ultrabook, with more devices expected at Computex. The MX150 "is a discrete graphics card for multimedia-oriented ultrabooks to ensure low power requirements," but it "was never officially introduced by NVIDIA." There aren't many concrete details known about the card, but it is believed to be a mobile version of the GeForce GT 1030 with 2GB of GDDR5.

Noctua Announces AM4 Upgrade Kit for NH-L9a and NH-L9i Coolers

23 May 2017 - 03:25 PM


Noctua has been designing upgrade kits for its older coolers when new sockets come out, going as far as offering them for free to users with proof of purchase for an "AM4 motherboard or AM4 CPU as well as a Noctua NH-L9a or NH-L9i CPU cooler." The company had previously released the NM-AM4-UxS and the NM-AM4 upgrade kits that covered a large number of its coolers, while the NM-AM4-L9x upgrade kit is targeted at these two low profile coolers. CEO Roland Mossig described the upgrade kits, stating "We’ve been offering the free NM-AM4 and NM-AM4-UxS upgrade kits for our larger cooler models for several months now and the response has been overwhelming – we’re proud to have so many customers who want to keep using their trusted Noctua heatsinks on the new AM4 platform. Just in time for the first AM4 mini-ITX motherboards, we’re now also offering an upgrade kit for our popular NH-L9a and NH-L9i low-profile coolers." The free upgrades have an expected ship time of 1-4 weeks and users that don't want to wait can buy one for $7.90 at retailers such as Amazon.

Noctua Adds Fans to A-Series

18 May 2017 - 02:06 PM


Noctua has announced the addition of fans with sizes of 200mm, 120mm, and 40mm to its A-series, with "signature features such as Flow Acceleration Channels and AAO (Advanced Acoustic Optimisation) frames." The new model numbers of the fans are NF-A20, NF-A12x15, and NF-A4x20, respectively. The 200mm model represents the largest fan Noctua has made, with the large size presenting a new array of design challenges. The reduced thickness of the new 120mm fan presented its own set of challenges, which Noctua was also able to solve with a bit of engineering. The new 40mm fan doubles the thickness of the current offering, making it a good choice for systems that require higher air pressure. The NF-A20 and NF-A12x15 will be available with PWM or FLX with Low-Noise and Ultra-Low-Noise options, providing users with a balance between cooling and acoustic performance. The NF-A4x20 will also have PWM and FLX configurations, but also adds a 5V connector for use in switches, routers, DVRs, and other devices.
