Zotac to Release a Small-Sized but Efficient Graphics Card GTX 650 Ti

Despite the variety of high-end graphics solutions in the market, not all customers, especially gamers, have possibilities of buying rather costly items in order to assemble a powerful gaming system. In this light, Zotac decided to comply with its customers’ budget by introducing a small-sized but efficient model – GeForce GTX 650 Ti (codename: ZT-61102-10H). Unlike the reference adapter with 1 GB memory, this solution stipulates the incorporation of 2 GB memory. This brings the new-comer to the higher level in graphics segment.

Graphics card Zotac GeForce GTX 650 Ti is based on Nvidia GK106 GPU, developed under 28 nm technological process. It features 769 CUDA cores and runs at factory-overclocked frequencies: the nominal frequency has been increased from 928 MHz to 941 MHz. The GPU is accompanied by GDDR5 memory modules that feature 128-bit interface. Memory runs at 1350 MHz in nominal mode but is able to enhance its potential to the effective 5400 MHz frequency.

Hard drives still confidently dominate on the notebook market, according to analysts

SSDs are gradually penetrating into mobile computers, but can not yet can become a serious competitor of hard disk drives. Even recently observed slowdown in demand for notebooks with hard drives will not lead to a decrease of the part pf these models in favour of laptops, where SSD is the main storage, analysts believe.

According to the first quarter of this year, models from the HDD larger than 500GB, offered at $ 450-550, formed the largest segment of the market at a rate of 32% of total deliveries. Second place with 26% take laptops with HDD capacity over 320GB, which cost $ 350-450. They are followed by models with HDD larger than 640GB ($ 550-650 price range), than go HDD larger than 750GB ($ 650-750), they are followed — with 250 GB HDD (price less than $ 350), next — the HDD larger than 1 TB ($ 750-900). And only in last place, relevant to market by about 3%, are laptops with SSD volume 128GB or HDD with very large volume (price — $ 900 or more).

Biostar Announces N3150NH Mainboard with Integrated CPU

The inventory of Biostar’s mini-ITX motherboards was replenished by a new uncommon model – the N3150NH. Its key peculiarity is the availability of a 4-core Intel Celeron N3150 CPU onboard. The processor (Intel Braswell family, 14 nm technological process) comes equipped with an integrated Intel HD graphics core and a passive cooler. Its nominal clock frequency makes up 1.6 GHz, while on overclocking it accelerates up to 2.08 GHz frequency.

Biostar N3150NH houses two SO-DIMM slots, estimated for 8 GB DDR3-1600 MHz memory modules (two-channel operational mode). The connection of drives is realized via a pair of SATA III 6 Gb/sec ports. There is a possibility to install one expansion card thanks to a single PCI Express 2.0 x1 slot. Network facilities are ensured due to Realtek RTL8111H controller that supports SmartSpeedLAN utility, whereas audio production becomes possible due to the integration of Realtek ALC662 controller.
