HIS Showcases New Graphics Card with Improved UVD GPU

The line of graphics cards manufactured by HIS has been recently replenished by an alternative Radeon HD 7950 IceQ Boost Clock model. The card takes a modified graphics adapter from AMD and is based on Tahiti PRO chip, developed according to 28 nm technological process. This chip houses 1792 current processors which are designed under an advanced Graphics Core Next architecture.

One of the major technological peculiarities pertained to a new model is the implementation of a unique two-slot IceQ cooler that involves an aluminum heatsink, four copper heat pipes and low-noise powerful fan. As claimed by the manufacturer, the integrated cooling system exceeds the cooler applied in the reference model in terms of heat dissipation power and noise. Hence, noise level produced by IceQ does not exceed the boundary of 28 dB; at the same time, it reduces the GPU temperature at 12 degrees as compared with the reference model.

To continue, Radeon HD 7950 IceQ Boost Clock is based on a …

Gigabyte Z87X-OC and Z87X-OC Force Motherboards’ Up-scale Peculiarities

Gigabyte has won its unflinching reputation as the leading manufacturer of multifarious hardware components primarily thanks to catering for the needs of any customer, either it is a corporate client or an average home user. Today the company decided to cater for the needs of enthusiasts and overclockers, who long for extreme performance, extreme speeds, as well as for limitless facilities, by introducing two new high-end motherboards. Codenamed Z87X-OC and Z87X-OC Force, the boards are based on Intel Z87 Express chipset that supports the 4th generation Intel Haswell processors.

Motherboards Gigabyte Z87X-OC and Z87X-OC Force feature Ultra Durable 5 Plus design, an improved hardware base, and an optimized cooling system. Both models have got 12-phase power stabilization system and an updated UEFI DualBIOS technology. These boards employ Gold Plated Solid Power Connectors that imply an increased usage of gold in 8-contact socket for CPU power supply and in 24-contact …

The First Glimpse on NXP Signal Amplifier BGU8006

NXP Semiconductors company announces the release of a GPS signal amplifier BGU8006 destined primarily for the integration into mobile devices, tablets, navigators, photo- and video cameras. According to the words of the NXP representatives, their new model is the most bantam signal amplifier available in the market: BGU8006 dimensions equal to 0.65mm x 0.44mm x 0.2mm. Besides, this amplifier is characterized by the extremely low level of noise and the necessity to employ only a couple of external components to enable the device (decoupling capacitor and matching inductor).

The abundance of radio frequency signals serves the major impediment for the pure GPS signal reception. NXP BGU8006 has been developed with this thought in mind and is called to improve the reception of weak GPS signals by means of a dynamic rejection of strong signals released by the cellular and local wireless networks.

BGU8006 is based on QuBIC4Xi SiGe:C BiCMOS technology which is known to involve the …
