Preview of Intel Itanium 9500 Specifications

The Internet community is actively discussing new Intel's development, processors Poulson, that belongs to the tenth generation of Intel Itanium. All previous data about the upcoming product were vague and void of official proofs. Currently, the data are more ample and allow the community to study the future processor in more details. Thus, Intel Itanium 9500, codenamed Poulson, will be presented by four models the release of which is planned for early autumn.

The crystal of Poulson processor will consist of 3.1 billion transistors that are called to form eight computing cores. Each core counts up 89 million transistors and the pipeline width is doubled to twelve instructions. This way CPU developers implement more efficient approach towards transistor budget. Just for comparison purposes, Poulson's predecessor, Tukwila, counted 109 billion transistors per core.

To continue, Poulson CPUs will accommodate a couple of cache memory arrays, five channels of QPI bus, system …

Biostar Introduces a New Hi-Fi B85S3+ Motherboard for Audiophiles

Biostar is glad to introduce one more representative of Hi-Fi Series of motherboards – the Hi-Fi B85S3+. The model is developed in micro-ATX form-factor and is intended for budget-oriented audiophiles. The heart of the board is Intel B85 Express chipset that shows compatibility with Intel Core i3/i5/i7 CPUs (4th generation) for Socket LGA1150 with the TDP level of not more than 95W. Due to a rather compact design, the new-comer is an ideal solution for small-sized home PCs and multi-media centers.

The Hi-Fi B85S3+ takes use of 4-phase power supply subsystem. It employs high-quality capacitors with a solid electrolyte and chokes with shell-type mandrels. Memory consists of four slots for DDR3 modules (running at 1600 MHz) with the overall capacity of 32 GB. Expansion is provided by one PCI slot, two PCI Express 2.0 x1 slots and one PCI Express 3.0 x16 slot.

Storage facilities are ensured by means of two SATA II ports and four SATA III ports. Network gigabit Ethernet port …

Gigabyte Outs a Pair of GT 710 Graphics Cards

Gigabyte has just announced the release of two entry-level graphics cards (with 1 GB or 2 GB DDR3) based on Nvidia’s GeForce GT 710 adapter. The company’s elaboration boasts the implementation of Ultra Durable 2 design that combines top-quality hardware base, reliability and high performance. The card comprises an improved PCB with the best-in-class solid-state capacitors, transistors as well as ferrite chokes.

Despite low-profile orientation, Gigabyte GeForce GT 710 employs active cooling system. The latter consists of a small-sized heatsink and a fan. In terms of efficiency, the company decided to preserve etalon showings; hence, the GPU (GK208, Kepler architecture, 192 CUDA cores) operates at 954 MHz frequency. Yet, the models come equipped with an overclocked memory: 900 MHz/1800 MHz (base/dynamic) frequency.

The kit of external interfaces includes three video ports: D-Sub, DVI-D & HDMI. Moreover, the nominal delivery set contains OC Guru II software package. It …
