article From the beginning, fiberboard was a product that was designed to be a cheap way to install a high-performance motherboard, something that could be quickly installed into a home or office.
But its main competitor, plastic-and-copper PCB board, has been used by some of the biggest names in the PC industry for years.
“Fiberboard has been the one technology that’s been going strong for years and years,” said Greg Martin, senior vice president at Corsair, a maker of high-end gaming and multimedia PCs.
“It’s a great fit for our portfolio.”
But there’s one thing that makes fiberboard so compelling: it’s cheap.
It costs less than $10 per square inch, compared to $80 per square foot for other high-priced components.
“I can’t overstate how good it is for our consumer,” Martin said.
Fiberboard is a form of metal-to-metal (M2M) bonding that uses the bonding process between two metal sheets to create a bond between two plastic sheets.
For example, two sheets of polystyrene are bonded together by the bonding agent, and then the polystyrenes are bonded with another material, like aluminum, and voila, you have a bonding compound.
The bond between the two layers of plastic is strong, which is why it’s known as M2M bonding.
(It’s also called a “bonding” bond because of the way the two plastic layers bond.)
M2Ms are also used to bond metal sheets.
When a sheet of aluminum is bonded to a sheet from polystyrex, the aluminum sheets can be soldered together with a solder joint, which provides a connection to the metal in a way that’s much stronger than a normal solder joint.
That’s why M2MS bonding is often referred to as “soldering-hot” bonding.
That bond also provides a stronger bond between M2 plastic sheets than standard M2 glue, which has a tendency to crack, leaving you with little room for error.
(Polystyrene has a good electrical resistance, so the polymer is still flexible.)
When M2m is used in conjunction with plastic, it has several advantages.
One, it’s cheaper than standard m2g bonding.
It’s less expensive to use than regular M2g, which costs between $10 and $20 per square unit.
Two, it can be used in multiple configurations.
M2 is typically used in a “triple-layered” configuration, which means the M2 M2 molding can be added to both the sides of the baseboard.
And three, it creates a stronger bonding bond than standard molding.
The best part?
It can also be used to make components such as keyboards, mice, and other components that require a high degree of reliability.
When I spoke with Martin at the recent PC World conference in San Francisco, he said fiberboard is the easiest component to install because it’s so inexpensive.
He said it also makes installation easier because it is easy to work with the manufacturer.
“Most people don’t know how to use the right tools,” he said.
“So if they have a product in their house, they can get the right tool for the job.”
A good idea in a pinch, of course, but fiberboard also makes the case that the market is ready for a better, more reliable system.
Fiberboards have been around for a while, and it’s not like this is a new product.
Intel’s own products have been using fiberboards for years, and some companies like Corsair are using them as well.
“When we first got involved with fiberboard, we knew it was the right product for what we wanted to do,” Martin told me.
“The problem was, we didn’t have any way of making it as cheap as the competition.”
Fiberboard has an important role in Intel’s future.
Intel has been building chips for the past two decades, and the company has spent billions on research and development.
When Intel first launched the Xeon Phi, the company was still a very small company.
But as it got bigger, Intel found that a lot of the chips on its board weren’t as good as the ones in the market.
“Our main goal was to make a product for a specific set of customers,” said Martin.
“If we could lower the cost of the product for an entire market, then it would help Intel.”
Intel’s recent announcement of a new Xeon Phi chip will provide the company with a major boost in cost.
The new Xeon-branded Xeon Phi chips will cost between $1,400 and $2,100.
This new processor will be Intel’s fastest processor to date, capable of a 1.2GHz boost clock speed and 4MB of L3 cache.
The chips will be the first chips from Intel
