Intel Diamondville to be passively cooled

Posted on Wednesday, February 13 2008 @ 19:31:58 CET by

Good news for fans of silent computer systems, in the second half of this year Intel will release the low-cost Diamondville platform and according to FUD Zilla the TDP of this platform will be so low that active cooling won't be necessary:
It is based on a new 45nm CPU that comes as a single and dual core and it targets the performance and power of basic PC and thin client market.

It has lover Bill of Material cost compared to anything else Intel had in this range and the system can work even without fan. The TDP of a CPU is from 4 to 8W. It will be ideal as a small form factor and we believe that Intel will attack VIA’s micro ATX with this platform.

The platform is powered by 945GC chipset and it comes with PATA and SATA support, DirectX 9 integrated graphics, six to eight USB slots and it supports SSD NV RAM memory.
