    Flat metal packages are power mosfets for auxiliary power supply ('AUX voltage' in Afterburner). They are fine without direct cooling if ambient temps are low, but for safety I would put a small...

    Dimensions are the same and socket holes have the same thread as old LGA2011. Some boards might not have holes in PCB, with threaded holes being attached to top part of loading mechanism. Assembled...

    What kind of epoxy (or whatever heat-activated polymer/metal composite stuff) holds stronger than die underfill and bond pads? This looks to me like metalised wafer soldered to IHS.

    They got infected by Nvidia's mindset of standing alone and not giving a damn.

    Very nice writeup! Only way it could be improved would be more pictures, and most of them wide angle :)

    I'd be interested in seeing the design. I would also gladly sacrifice some accuracy (0.5 C / 1 F accuracy should be enough for most overclockers) if it meant a significant cost reduction.

    FIVR is present in Broadwell, on 14 nm - so it's not a simple process issue.

    Reasons for this are puzzling. Certainly not catering to enthusiasts, probably not to laptop makers either. Are they having problems integrating analog stuff on 14 nm? Or is that just for Sky Bay,...

    Cooler is Grand Kama Cross, temps are far from throttling (exact numbers, being a figment of DTS-es imagination, are disregarded).

    No, non-K versions are plain old Haswell. K versions of those numbers are Devil's Canyon and require a BIOS update, which should be coming soon for Gigabyte Z87 boards.

    Bravo Blizzard, it only took you almost 2 years. Not bad, I believe Windows and some web browsers have had some unfixed bugs for even longer.

    Today's CPUs are packaged in flip-chip way - the side with transistors and interconnect layers is turned down, towards the substrate. There's nothing important on the visible side of the die. You...

    I thought "the console loss" was due to enormous R&D costs, not per unit manufacturing cost. It's extremely unbelievable that manufacturing anything like PS3 would cost 840$ if you don't count...

    There's only two problems that might make me not buy it:

    1) slim OD facing upwards? This is not good whether it's a slot or tray drive.

    I don't remember this being confirmed anywhere. AFAIK only BD, PD and SR are confirmed to be evolutions of the same modular architecture.

    I hope those whispers get louder soon :)
