ID-Cooling Announces the Hunter VC-Twin CPU Cooler
ID-Cooling announced the Hunter VC-Twin CPU cooler. Based on a classic "D-type" dual fin-stack design, the VC-Twin features a pair of thermal-grade anti-oxidation coated aluminium fin stacks, to which heat from the base is conveyed by five 8 mm-thick copper heat pipes. The CPU base features a vapor-chamber plate making contact with the CPU, and dissipating heat to the heat pipes.



The cooler includes two fans, a 120 mm intake, and a larger 140 mm conveyor between the two fin-stacks. Both fans support 4-pin PWM control. The 120 mm fan spins between 800-1,800 RPM, pushing up to 60.7 CFM of air, with a noise output ranging between 16.2-29.2 dBA. The 140 mm fan, on the other hand, spins between 800-1,600 RPM, pushing up to 76.8 CFM, with a noise output ranging between 16.8-32.6 dBA. Measuring 123 mm x 153 mm x 160 mm (L×W×H), the cooler weighs about 1,418 g. It can deal with thermal loads of up to 200W, and hence supports all modern CPU socket types, including LGA2011v3, LGA115x, AM3+, and FM2+. The company didn't announce pricing.

(PR) Toshiba Launches New NAND Flash Memory Products for Embedded Applications
Toshiba today launched a new line-up of NAND flash memory products for embedded applications that are compatible with the widely used Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI). Wide ranging applications for the new "Serial Interface NAND" include such consumer applications as flat-screen TVs, printers and wearable devices, and industrial applications, including robots. Users can choose from a wide line-up of 12 products that offers three densities, 1Gbit, 2Gbit and 4Gbit; two packages, WSON[1] and SOP[2] and two power supply voltages. Samples shipment starts today and mass production is scheduled to begin with the 1Gbit products from December. Mass production of the remaining line-up will follow.



Compatibility with the widely used SPI, which can be controlled with just six pins, allows the new "Serial Interface NAND" to be used as SLC NAND flash memory, with a low pin count, small package and large capacity.

NVIDIA Prepares a Controversial Change to its Driver Update Distribution
NVIDIA is preparing a major change to the way it distributes driver updates. You now get new versions of NVIDIA GeForce drivers by either downloading them from the company's websites (NVIDIA.com and GeForce.com), or use GeForce Experience to download and install (update) them for you. NVIDIA plans to change this such, that the latest driver updates will be only available through GeForce Experience, while standalone installers that are downloadable from the website will slow down to a quarterly update cadence.



NVIDIA is currently rolling out new drivers on a monthly basis, sometimes even twice a month, predating major AAA game releases, under its "Game Ready Driver" moniker. If you want the latest drivers to keep up with new game releases, then NVIDIA expects you to use GeForce Experience to update your drivers. Those without Internet connections or building offline (eg: system integrators, first-time installations), will have to use stale drivers from the website (which will be on a slower update cycle), and then update them to the latest using GeForce Experience. NVIDIA's justification for this move is that it finds that 90% of the driver updates are going through GeForce Experience. The part that's controversial about this is that it makes GeForce Experience an app gamers can't do without (and will probably stay loyal to the NVIDIA brand). This change will take effect this December.

Next up, is the new Broadcast feature, which lets you instantly stream your gameplay to Twitch and YouTube, at 1080p 60 FPS. Recording gameplay is as easy as bringing up the overlay and clicking a button.



GameStream co-op, which was teased recently, lets you stream your game across to a buddy over the Internet, who can take over your game in their web-browser, and get you through the level you're stuck in (you need at least a 7 Mbps Internet connection on both ends for this to work). Lastly, in-home GameStream (which lets you stream your game to your living room TV), can now stream in glorious 4K Ultra HD, at 60 FPS, and with 5.1-channel audio. The "instant replay" feature lets you play back the past defined time period of gameplay as video. The new features go live with the GeForce 358.50 drivers, if you don't see them, make GeForce Experience "check for updates."
