NAND flash pricing stabilizing
This is because makers of NAND flash have begun lowering output to reduce global supply and demand is expected to increase in the second half of 2012, the sources said.
Global sales of smartphones, tablet PCs and ultrabooks are expected to grow in the second half of 2012, thereby increasing demand for NAND flash used in SSDs and eMMC, the sources indicated. In addition, Intel's Ivy Bridge platform is expected to increase global penetration of USB 3.0 flash drives, especially 16GB models, and in turn demand for large-capacity NAND flash chips, the sources noted. The global penetration of USB 3.0 flash drives will reach an estimated 20% at the end of 2012, the sources estimated.

GELID GC-Extreme 10g and GC-Supreme TIM
Thermal Solutions specialist GELID Solutions launches the cutting-edge "GC-Extreme" thermal compound with a net content of 10g. It contains the same material as the multi-winning "GC-Extreme 3.5g" and varies in net content only.
In comparison to the other compounds in the market the "GCExtreme" breaks all records and is most suitable for overclocking. Ultimate heat conductivity makes the "GC-Extreme" the leader of all thermal compounds. As with the other compounds of GELID Solutions the "GC-Extreme" is non-electrical conductive, non-corrosive, no bleeding and non-curing. The "GC-Extreme 10g" comes with a GELID applicator which enables an easier application. As a product of the GAMER product line the "GC-Extreme" contains 10g.
Beside the "GC-Extreme 10g" GELID Solutions introduces the "GC-Supreme" for professional users. The "GC-Supreme" is made from the purest thermal conducting materials and offers superb thermal conduction. Thanks to nano scale produced new ultra-fine molecular structure the "GC-Supreme" fills spaces more effectively than conventional materials. In comparison to other thermal compounds the "GCSupreme" provides an easier application especially with the GELID applicator. Coupled with excellent thermal conductivity for an attractive price this thermal compound makes the best choice for professionals. As a product of the SILENT product line the "GC-Supreme" contains 7g.
The "GC-Extreme 10g" and "GC-Supreme" thermal compounds are available now for a MSRP of USD 25.99 / EUR 19.99 and USD 7.2 / EUR 5.7.

AMD FX-8350 Piledriver expected by mid-Q3
AMD's FX-8350 "Piledriver" based processor is anticipated to hit the market around August of this year. he firm has already shown us just what Piledriver is capable of through the release of its new Trinity APU line-up, which has generally been capable of offering improved performance at a lower power consumption, despite remaining on a 32nm production node.
The Zambezi range will remain socket AM3+ compatible, with the head of the pack expected to be the FX-8350, which will feature eight cores with a 4 x 2MB L2 and 8MB L3 cache configuration. As it's likely to feature a 125 watt TDP, we expect the FX-8350 to be clocked 10 per cent faster than its FX-8150 predecessor and, with tweaks to the Piledriver design offering around a six per cent performance boost over Bulldozer at the same clock, according to early benchmarks of Trinity, the FX-8350 may just have enough *umph* to successfully break AMD out of its performance slump.
