Meet New Motherboard from Biostar: Hi-Fi Z87W

Biostar is ready to launch its newest motherboard that is notable for the support of Windows 8.1 OS platform and availability of Windows Hardware Quality Labs certificate. Entitled Biostar Hi-Fi Z87W, it features a standard ATX form-factor and is relied on Intel Z87 Express chipset. Thereby, the board is ready to accommodate LGA1150 Intel Core processors (Haswell architecture).



The motherboard houses four slots for the installation of DDR3 memory modules that run at the maximal 2600 MHz (up to 32 GB). Power subsystem is organized according to 8-phase scheme to provide enough power to the CPU and other key components. Expansion facilities are secured by means of two PCI slots, the same number of PCI-e 2.0 x1 slots, one PCI-e 2.0 x16, and one more PCI-e 3.0 x16 slot. Storage facilities are represented by six SATA III 6 Gb/sec ports, which can be combined into diverse RAID configurations.

Zotac Intros Its Own Version of GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost Adapter

Zotac International introduces its own version of recently launched reference adapter GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost from Nvidia. As distinct from the reference model, graphics card from Zotac (codename ZT-6120-10M) is a bit overclocked, enjoys an enforced cooling system with a voluminous heatsink and a pair of large fans.



Similarly to the original, Zotac GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost is equipped with Nvidia GPU Boost technology that empowers dynamic overclocking and, as a result, dramatically improves the card’s performance. In addition, this option automatically identifies when GPU is physically able to heighten the frequencies and ‘wring out’ the maximal efficiency from it.


Those gamers, who are keen on enhancing their system’s performance, are free to employ Nvidia SLI facility that helps in uniting two GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost graphics cards with the purpose to double the performance. The list of all basic specifications is given below:

Solid-State Drive OCZ Agility 4 Review

Up-to-date SSD manufacturers are inclined to employ MLC flash-memory with synchronous interface in their product lines. The implementation of exactly such memory interface allows balancing the advanced performance with moderate price. This is especially vital for SSDs with SATA 3 6Gb/sec interface. Nevertheless, some producers take the challenge to implement flash-memory with asynchronous interface in their drives. As a result, the final products go at more attractive price but with more modest speed characteristics. OCZ dared to overcome this speed drawback by releasing SSD Agility 4 series. The models included in the series are based on asynchronous flash-memory interface and, according to the company's words, prove to show quite decent speed index.



Chief Peculiarities


Despite the prevalence of SandForce controllers implemented in SSDs, OCZ decided to use quite different platform for its new series. Agility 4 employs Indilinx Everest 2 controllers which, in some way, …
