New Gigabyte Radeon HD 7970 operates at a frequency of 1100 MHz

Gigabyte presented a new overclocking model of video card Tahiti XT, designated as GV-R797TO-3GD. In comparison to the current Radeon HD 7970 OC (GV-797OC-3GD), the newcomer has some advantages. In particular, it is known that the graphic adapter is based on the graphics chip Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition that is selected. The clock frequency of the accelerator is increased from 1000/5500 MHz (core / memory) to the 1100/6000 MHz, comparing GV-797OC-3GD. Standard values, recall — 925 MHz GPU with chip and 5500 MHz with GDDR5 microchip.

Externally the video adapter has no changes: the PCB soldered 3 GB of memory, which combines with the GPU on a 384-bit brace. The number of stream processors is unchanged — 2048 units. The design of printed circuit board includes electrical components Ultra Durable VGA. High-effective WindForce 3X cooler consists of a copper base, a few copper heat pipes and three 80-mm fans.

BenQ RL2455HM features 24-inch display and 16:9 aspect ratio. It is characterized by Full HD resolution (1920x1080), 60 Hz scanning, wide viewing angles (170 degrees vertical, 160 degrees horizontal), and high dynamic contrast ratio that achieves 12 million to 1 index. This monitor employs TN panel but can boast quite an outstanding response time: on gray-to-gray switch, array response time equals to 1 ms only. This is a dramatic breakthrough, if compared with the majority of other gaming displays that demonstrate from 4 to 7 ms time.

Still, interface panel is not rich on I/O ports: it is represented by a couple of HDMI ports and …

Apacer Launches Memory Cards of SD and CF Format

Apacer Technology, world-known manufacturer of digital storage devices and memory cards, has introduced in a stately manner its latest ‘creations’, memory cards of SD and CF format, codenamed SD-M and CompactFlash5. The key feature of new products is the extended temperature range which allows the cards to show good operability under conditions of low temperatures (from -40 degrees centigrade) up to extremely high temperatures (to +85 degrees centigrade). The applied technology promoted for the expansion of these memory cards to a variety of areas, including aviation, military and automotive electronics.

According to the words of Apacer’s representatives, their memory cards are full-blown solid state drives with SD and CF interfaces. SD-M and CompactFlash5 are based on MLC NAND flash memory.

Memory cards with SD interface support SD 2.0 and Class 10 specifications, and will go in four volume capacity variants: 4, 8, 16, and 32 GB. Those cards are known to develop …
