Asus Introduces a New Powerful Motherboard Z87-A

The line of Haswell-compatible motherboards from Asus has been recently replenished with a new model – Z87-A. The new-comer is supposed to be the most ‘customer-friendly’ board, due to the correlation of incorporated facilities and price: based on the prime chipset (Intel Z87) on Socket LGA1150 platform, this board boasts an extreme functional combined with the price of $150 only. Thus, it might become a perfect solution for a powerful gaming PC.



Motherboard Asus Z87-A is elaborated in ATX form-factor and supports Intel Core i3, i5, i7, Pentium, and Celeron processors. Memory is represented by four DDR3 DIMM slots that are able to run at the maximal 3000 MHz frequency. Their overall capacity might achieve 32 GB. CPU power supply subsystem involves 8 phases; this is quite enough for a full-scale overclocking. Audio facilities are ensured by the integrated 7.1-channel Realtek ALC892 controller. Network facilities are backed by a separate gigabit Realtek 8111GR controller.

ASRock Unveils Z170M OC Formula Mainboard

ASRock came into the market with a new small-sized overclocking-oriented mainboard. Entitled Z170M OC Formula, the model is designed in micro-ATX form-factor on the basis of Intel Z170 chipset. The latter is ready to cooperate with Intel Skylake CPUs for Socket LGA1151. The PCB offers a pair of DIMM slots for DDR4-4500 MHz RAM (up to 32 GB capacity).



ASRock Z170M OC Formula accommodates three PCIe 3.0 x16 expansion slots, enabling the creation of various graphics configurations (including Nvidia SLI & AMD CrossFireX). Storage subsystem is introduced by a pair of SATA Express ports (10 Gb/sec) as well as four SATA ports (6 Gb/sec) and one Ultra M.2 slot (32 Gb/sec).


This motherboard boasts a high-quality audio subsystem; it is based on Realtek ALC1150 controller, generating 7.1-channel sounding (Purity Sound 3). The 10-layer PCB comes with an integrated 14-phase power subsystem with dual-stack MOSFETs, premium choke coils, and solid-state capacitors Nichicon 12K Platinum. …

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.
