Intel Thunderbolt Ready Facilitates in Upgrading Your Desktop PC

Last week Intel announced a new instrumentality for upgrading desktop PC, called Thunderbolt Ready. This tool will help in incorporating Thunderbolt interface into the motherboards which initially do not have the support for it. However, only the motherboards with ‘Thunderbolt Ready’ marking and an inbuilt General-purpose I/O (GPIO) socket might fall under the upgrade. In addition to this feature, the user will have to acquire a dedicated card to enable the interface.



This card is installed into an appropriate PCI Express slot and is then connected to GPIO, as well as DisplayPort socket of the integrated/discrete GPU controller, due to the cables that go in batch. After this, the customer needs to upload dedicated software in order to activate the Thunderbolt. According to Intel, there are currently more than 100 alike products with Thunderbolt support; the majority of them are certified for the usage with PCs on Windows or Mac OS X platforms.

King’s on the Footprint: Nvidia Boasts Titan X Adapter

The much-anticipated release of Nvidia’s GeForce GTX Titan X graphics adapter has already come true. The new-comer employs the latest flagship GM200 GPU (Nvidia Maxwell architecture) that comprises 8 billion transistors, 24 SMM blocks (each includes 128 CUDA cores and 8 TMUs). As a result, the GPU consists of 3072 CUDA cores and 192 TMUs – a record-breaking layout. The amount of ROPs makes up 96.



Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan X runs at 1000 MHz nominal frequency but might be overclocked to 1075 MHz frequency. Memory subsystem is compiled of 12 GB of GDDR5 modules which operate at 7010 MHz frequency. The bandwidth index of 384-bit bus approximates 336.5 Gb/sec. Consequently, an overall computation power is estimated at 7.0 TFLOPS.


Cooling is organized with the assistance of a two-slot cooler with a single fan. Connectivity facilities include three video ports: DisplayPort, DVI-I and HDMI. On active mode, the maximum allowed GPU temperature should not exceed 92 C. The utmost …
