News - AnandTech Reviews AMD A8-7670K APU

AMD has struggled mightly over the last few years to define a niche where they could be profitable and sell CPU+GPU (aka APU or IPG depending on your preference) at the same time. This "Godvarai" based APU (AMD's term) runs $118, so in the middle of AMD's Kaveri lineup.

News - Noctua announces NH-L9 low profile HSF for LGA1155 and FM1/2 IPG

Noctua NH-L9

Finding a good low profile heat sink and fan (HSF) that isn't also incredibly wide is a lot harder than it should be, especially for AMD's FM1/2 socket. Fortunately this will be much easier now that Noctua has announced its NH-L9 HSF for that platform (NH-L9a) and Intel's LGA 1155 socket (NH-L9i). It's hard not to like Noctua's cooling solutions, but they can be a bit pricey for a budget build and at ~$50 the NH-L9 is no exception.

News - Arctic Announces AMD Trinity Based SFF HTPC

Arctic MC101

With AMD's Trinity APU/IPG coming in the near future it is great to see what OEMs are planning to do with the part. No word on price or timing, but Arctic has released a picture and some [subject to change without notice] specs for their next generation small form factor (SFF) HTPC built on the CPU/GPU combo. I think it looks great, but I'm a sucker for brushed aluminum; hopefully we'll see something with Zacate like power use and better than Llano performance in the A/V stack.
