The Latest Nvidia Volta Graphics Processors Are Expected to be Designed in Accordance with 12 nm Technology-specific Rules

Allegedly, in 2017 NVIDIA is going to release a new generation of Volta graphics processors, designed in conformity with 12 nm technology-specific rules. According to these rumours, Volta will take Pascal’s place in supercomputing, artificial intelligence and machine learning systems. It is expected, that modern chips will be manufactured at TSMC factories.



Moreover, in addition to supercomputing solutions, the chip manufacturer plans to launch a series of video cards, based on Pascal Refresh graphics engines. One of the first samples may be GeForce GTX 2080 Ti with a GP102 chip, utilized in the current GeForce GTX Titan X flagship.


The present-day GeForce GTX 1080 and GTX 1070 successors will obtain the GDDR5X memory support and higher operating frequency providing increase in productivity. Simultaneously, the number of CUDAs won’t change.


The mid-graphics segment will be represented by upgraded GeForce GTX 2060 Ti, GTX 2060, as well as GTX 2050 models, which …

EKWB Launches a New Water Block for GV-N680SO-2GD

Early August of 2012 was marked for Gigabyte by the release of its one more graphics card, codenamed GeForce GTX 680 SOC (GV-N680SO-2GD). This card can boast the availability of high factory frequencies and quite mighty cooling system. The nominal frequencies have been heightened to 1137MHz, 1202MHz, and 6200MHz for memory. Such outstanding characteristics required the integration of a high-quality and high-performance cooling system which consisted of five(!) fans. This made the card rather voluminous, cumbersome and noisy. That was when EKWB decided to design a dedicated water block to be employed with this remarkable graphics adapter.



Water block EK-FC 680 GTX SOC is housed on a copper base, good-quality acetal cover, and rubber shims as a compressor. The model is delivered with pre-installed fixing stands to facilitate the installation. It should be noted that this water block entirely covers the frontal part of the graphics card, along with the adjacent RAM modules and …
