Amazon launches a new type of product in its line Amazon Basics. It’s about a cpu heatsink con fan y luces LED, which is worth only 30 euros. A priori it is good news but… is it beneficial?
We live in bad times for those who want to build a PC, or buy a new one. The prices they have shotFirst, due to the pandemic and the chip crisis. Then, for cryptocurrencies. And now, for inflation. And this has only just begun: there is talk that ChatGPT and the AI also require a lot of processing power, and are going to monopolize the traffic cards.
The truth is that build or buy a PC right now, costs twice as much than a year or two ago. So the arrival of Amazon Basics to the market of PC componentswith entry-level products, but cheapyou can be the salvation for many users with a low budget.
A white label CPU cooler
Amazon Basics has started selling PC components in its store. For now, a sink con fan y luces LEDwhich only costs 30 euros.
It is compatible with both intel processors as AMDand has 4 heat pipes with direct contact technology to extract heat from the CPU. This heat is sent outside with the help of the fan “quiet”, with a maximum noise level of 29.38 dBA.
It is a simple entry-level heatsink that works perfectly for low-end and mid-range processors.
Searching a bit, you can see that it is practically identical al Cooler Master Hyper H410R RGB, which is basically the same. Chances are, Amazon has come to an agreement with the brand for you to manufacture for your line Amazon Basics.
A priori, it is good news. PC hardware is very expensive, and if AmazonBasics begins releasing coolers, PC cases, fans, and other hardware at low prices, they can be purchased by users with a low budget. AND It will force the competition to lower prices.
But others don’t see it that way. Some gamers believe that Amazon only takes advantage of already created products to sell them cheaper, and if the competition doesn’t sell, they will stop releasing PC hardware, or keep innovating.
Two visions of the same initiative, and each one with its share of reason. We lean on the side of the anxiously awaiting affordable hardware. Now everything that surrounds the PC is so expensive that any initiative that offers cheap components with a minimum of quality, is welcome.
Amazon Basics He has been selling mice, PC cables, etc. for a long time. But it is the first time that it sells internal pc components. has started with this CPU heatsinkbut we don’t know if he plans to expand the offer, or if he is just testing the market.
