Promising Speed Forecasts for AMD Radeon 8000 Sea Islands

AMD is continuing its work on the new GPU generation codenamed ‘Sea Islands’. The new series is prognosticated to be released in the coming winter. All the products with this GPU will be branded Radeon 8000. AMD manufacturers claim that their new graphic processing units will be 40% more efficient due to the implemented advanced technologies. There is not so much news about the future GPU architecture, although cardinal changes are barely possible.

Sea Islands chips will be equipped with 5.1 billion transistors as compared with the current 4.3 billion items applied in the products. This augmentation will facilitate the increment of efficiency. The chips will be developed according to the already tried-and-proven 28 nm technological requirements. The increase of transistors is not as large due to the adherence to the ascribed norms. It should be underlined that the implementation of the old technologies does not imply the considerable warming up of the chips; the developments …

Arctic to Release Coolers Specifically for Nvidia Graphics Cards

Arctic Cooling AG is going to release a new air cooling system destined particularly for Nvidia GeForce GTX 690 graphics solutions. Codenamed Accelero Twin Turbo 690, this new cooler is differentiated by better efficiency and practically imperceptible noise level. This model features 288x138x50 mm and weighs 805 g. The nominal delivery set of Accelero Twin Turbo 690 includes fixture kit, brand thermal compound Arctic MX-4, and thermal padding.

New cooling system consists of aluminum base with two copper sills, ten copper heat pipes (6 mm each in depth), a couple of 120 mm fans, and two-section aluminum radiator that contains eighty-six plates. Fans are developed on hydrodynamic bearing and can be monitored by a special facility; rotational speed can be automatically altered by means of pulse width modulation and fluctuate within the measures of 400 rpm to 1500 rpm.

According to the words of the company's developers, Accelero Twin Turbo 690 is capable to manage up to 400W …
