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 …

MSI Intros 5 New Videocards Based on GTX 1060 Adapter

MSI has developed 5 different modifications of the latest Nvidia’s adapter entitled GeForce GTX 1060. All the models are based on GP106-300 GPU (Pascal/16 FinFet) with 1152 CUDA cores, 72 TMUs & 48 ROPs. Moreover, they all employ PCI Express 3.0 x16 interface as well as 3 GB of GDDR5 memory (192-bit rail) that operates at 2002/8008 MHz frequency.

The most affordable graphics card – MSI GeForce GTX 1060 3GT OC – runs at 1544/1759 MHz frequency (factory overclocked). The PCB boasts the implementation of top-quality Military Class 4 hardware base & a two-fan cooling system with several heatpipes. The model draws power via a single 6-pin connector.

The ARMOR series is represented by two models: GeForce GTX 1060 Armor 3G V1 and GeForce GTX 1060 Armor 3G OCV1. Both items are designed in white-and-black color gamut. The second card is shipped with a factory overclocked GPU – 1544/1759 MHz frequency. Cooling system consists of nickel-plated copper heatpipes in combination …

Which DDR3 SDRAM is better for Ivy Bridge

The overclocker memory is now in the category of products for perfectionists, still the common users are pleased with usual modules DDR3-1600 or DDR3-1333 SDRAM. The issue appears related to the release of processors Ivy Bridge series, which in some aspects are similar to its predecessors, still have some distinctive features.

Ivy Bridge processors are restricted on the maximum frequency supported by the DDR3 SDRAM. This indicates the theoretical chance of these processors work with high-speed memory DDR3-3200 SDRAM. Developers of overclocker memory package perceived the change in rules with certain enthusiasm: there are DDR3-2400 modules available in stores. The gap in frequencies of «elite» and «running» versions of the memory has grown twice in size. It won’t have a noteworthy blow on the work of commonly used tasks in systems.

The memory controller in the Ivy Bridge can work both in symmetric mode, with delay, frequency and volume modules in memory channels, and …
