Gainward GameSoul GeForce GTX 1080/1070 Graphics Cards Got the Factory Overclocking

GeForce GTX 1080 and GeForce GTX 1070 GameSoul series graphics accelerators by Gainward are ready for release. These products are meant for powerful game-playing machines and VR systems.



Graphics cards are based on the 16 nm NVIDIA GP104 chip with Pascal architecture. The GeForce GTX 1080 model has 2,560 streaming processors, 160 TMU and 64 ROP. The card features 8 GB of GDDR5X memory with a 256-bit bus.


In its turn, GeForce GTX 1070 comprises 1,920 streaming processors, 120 TMU and 64 ROP. The volume of the GDDR5 memory with a 256- bit bus equals to 8 GB.


Both novelties possess the factory overclocking. The GeForce GTX 1080 chip core base clock is raised from 1,607 MHz to 1,733 MHz, the augmented frequency — from 1,733 MHz to 1,873 MHz. The GeForce GTX 1070 version frequencies boosted from 1,506 MHz to 1,620 MHz and from 1,683 MHz to 1,822 MHz.


The cooling system includes three 100 mm fans. Backlighting is anticipated as well. Monitors can be connected through …

Greeting Deepcool Wave Mini-Tower Case

Deepcool Industries Co. Ltd., a renowned Chinese developer of PC cooling solutions, is about to launch another top-notch chassis, codenamed Wave. This mini-tower model, featuring 387x175x353.5 mm dimensions, is supposed to accommodate micro-ATX systems. Despite a sleek design and enhanced functionality, entry-level customers will be able to acquire the new-comer for some $30-40.



Deepcool Wave is housed in a steel chassis (0.5 mm SECC) with plastic details. Its internal layout is predestined for two 5.25-inch drives, a triple of 3.5-inch drives and the same number of 2.5-inch drives. Expansion facilities are ensured by means of four PCI slots. There is enough space for the installation of 145-mm-high CPU cooler, 320-mm-long graphics cards, and ATX-compatible power supply unit.


The chassis comes with a single preinstalled 120 mm frontal fan, equipped with blue LED backlight. There is a possibility to boost air cooling by integrating two more fans. Connectivity is secured …

ARM Readies Cortex-A72 and Mali-T880 for Mobile Devices

ARM has just announced a series of solutions for the upcoming next-generation mobile SoC. The most notable developments are Cortex-A72 processor and Mali-T880 graphics. According to the manufacturer, both components will be interconnected within SoC by means of CoreLink – CCI-500. The launch of new items is scheduled for 2016. Rockchip, MediaTek and HiSilicon are among the companies to integrate both elaborations into their products.



It should be noted that Cortex- A72 is a successor of Cortex-A57, taking analogous 64-bit operations but demonstrating three times higher performance. The new-comer will be designed under 16 nm FinFET+ technological process. Its layout corresponds to big.LITTLE framework requirements; this promotes for its combination with other ARM cores.


As far as Mali-T880 GPU is concerned, it provides for 1.8 response time increase if compared with the Mali-T760 model. Herewith, its power consumption is reduced by 40%. Moreover, this GPU might support 4K …
