April 20, 2010 The Taiwan based PC thermal solution expert, Tuniq, has announced a new addition to their Tower 120 Extreme series of ultra performance CPU coolers, the Ą§Tower 120 Extreme Silver.
Stays in the green
In Q4 2009 AMD reported its first profitable quarter in years, and, according to Q1 earnings data released on Thursday, the company is staying in the green.
AMD reported revenues of $1.57 billion and profits of $257 million in the first quarter of 2010. A year ago, the outfit posted a $416 million loss and $1.18 billion of revenues. AMD also managed to beat its Q4 2009 results, but the company expects the upcoming quarter to be slightly down due to seasonal trends.
In less than two quarters
AMD announced that it has managed to ship in excess of 6 million DirectX 11 capable GPUs in the past two quarters.
The company introduced the HD 5800 series in late September and the cards started shipping in volume in early October. A month later AMD launched the HD 5700 series, which was followed by entry level parts and mobile GPUs.
The Apple rumor du jour is that everyone's favorite tablet maker is considering AMD for a spot in the Mac lineup. AppleInsider alleges that AMD execs have been pitching Apple on the chipmaker's upcoming product roadmap, and that the two parties are in "advanced discussions" about putting AMD inside some Apple products.

Cheapskates of the world unite! On a more serious note, this shows that you don’t need loads of cash to purchase a blazing fast CPU, but rather get busy and push your CPU to the limits, even if it is a modest single core.
Madshrimps.be has performed a nice little experiment to see just how much juice can one squeeze out of a €35 CPU, and the results are excellent.
Nine revamped parts
AMD is readying nine new Athlon II processor based on the C3 core revision. The refreshed CPUs won't bring major performance boosts, but they could deliver lower thermals and better oveclocking potential.
CPU World has posted several images of the new processors, along with part numbers. Three dual-core Athlons, 245, 250 and 255, as well as three triple-cores, 405e, 435 and 440, will feature the new stepping.
Even the peanut butter sandwich
It is starting to look as if Intel's dream of protecting its notebook market from netbooks is going to fall flat on its face. Intel has resisted moves to make netbooks bigger and more useful but now it is starting to look as if it is failing. AMD, VIA and ARM seem to be targeting Intel's prize jewels and the world on the street is that they might just get away with it.
Dealing with current news means that we rarely have the opportunity to review old products and of course a comparison between the most recent products and those that came out several years ago can get a little problematic. But we’ve decided to push the boat out and take as exhaustive a look as possible at the Intel and AMD processor offer spanning the last five years.
3GHz Athlon 250e, 2.9GHz 245e
AMD will soon roll out a couple of new energy efficient dual-core Athlon II X2 processors. The company currently offers two Regor-based parts with a 45W TDP, the 2.8GHz 240e and the 2.7GHz 235e.
The new 250e is clocked at 3GHz, while the 245e runs at 2.9GHz, which sounds nice considering the low TDP. Mind you, it is possible that the CPUs are based on the new C3 stepping, but at press time we are unable to confirm this.
