PowerColor Outs an Overclocked Radeon R9 270 OC Graphics Card

Along with other AMD partners, PowerColor has elaborated its own version of Radeon R9 270 adapter. The PowerColor Radeon R9 270 OC is differentiated from rival products by an improved cooling system and factory overclocked frequencies. Its release is scheduled for late November and the retail price won’t hit over $180.



To begin with, this graphics card is naturally based on AMD Curacao Pro GPU, developed under 28 nm technological process. It consists of 1280 current processors, 32 ROPs and 64 TMUs. The core runs at 930 MHz frequency and is able to gain 955 MHz frequency on overclocking. The incorporation of GDDR5 memory (2 GB) with 256-bit bus interface ensures some striking bandwidth of 180 Gb/sec; this provides for the support of gaming applications with high resolution. Memory chip operates at 1400 MHz nominal frequency but might gain the index of 5600 MHz of effective frequency on overclocking.


Cooling system, implemented within Radeon R9 270 OC, cannot be called …

Greeting an Affordable Z170A-X1/3.1 Mainboard from ASRock

ASRock is known for developing high-quality hardware components for a relatively affordable price. Thence, its latest Z170A-X1/3.1 ATX mainboard is not an exception, since its price tag does not go beyond $100. In order to cheapen the prime cost, the manufacturer backed away SATA Express & M.2 connectors, limiting the PCB by six SATA III 6 Gb/sec ports.



To add, instead of a modern 8-channel audio controller it incorporated a well-known Realtek ALC892 item. The other boons of modernity remained unchanged. Thus, ASRock took Intel Z170 top chipset as the basis for the motherboard. The chipset is targeting the latest Intel Skylake CPUs for Socket LGA1151. The PCB accommodates 4 DIMM slots for dual-channel DDR4-3466 MHz RAM (up to 64 GB max. capacity).


Graphics facilities are ensured thanks to a pair of PCI Express 3.0 x16 slots, although there are three more PCI Express 3.0 x1 slots for the connection of other items. Network options are entrusted to gigabit Intel I219V LAN …

MSI Adds a Pair of GTX 1070 Quick Silver 8G Graphics Cards to Its Portfolio

It feels as if MSI never stops experimenting with its PC solutions. This time the company decided to tinker with color gamut of the graphics cards. Therewith, it introduced a couple of comic-colored video cards, entitled GeForce GTX 1070 Quick Silver 8G & GeForce GTX 1070 Quick Silver 8G OC. The black-and-gray coating might become a stylish add-on to any gaming rig.



Both video cards are based on Nvidia GP104-200 GPU (16 FinFET, Pascal) with 1920 CUDA, 120 TMUs & 64 ROPs. The models are able to operate in three modes: Silent, Gaming and OC; hence, the core’s clock frequencies depend on the mode. MSI GeForce GTX 1070 Quick Silver 8G operates at 1506/1683 MHz (base/dynamic) in Silent mode; 1518/1708 MHz in Gaming mode and 1531/1721 MHz in OC mode. The accompanying 8 GB of GDDR5 video memory (256-bit) runs equally on any conditions – 8008 MHz.


In its turn, MSI GeForce GTX 1070 Quick Silver 8G OC is able to demonstrate the following performance index: 1506/1683 MHz in …
