An American website presented its version of the sequence of announcements of mainstream and mid-range graphics card Nvidia Kepler. It was reported earlier that the model GeForce GTX 660 will debut at retail simultaneously with the GTX 660 Ti (August 16), but as it turned out, this is not the case: despite the inclusion of systems into packages, this adapter will be available for purchase as a separate product only on the third week of September, ie from 17 to 23.

Preliminarily, GeForce GTX 660 is based on a 28-nm core Nvidia GK106-200-A2, which includes 960-1152 stream processors and 192-bit memory bus that connects the GPU with chips GDDR5 in the amount of 1.5-2 GB. The recommended price is expected to be around $ 230.

From 17 to 23 September also will be available in sale the GeForce GTX 650 Ti and GeForce GTX 650. The first is based on the graphics core GK106, but with 4-5 streaming multiprocessors SMX or 768-960 shader blocks. The total volume of GDDR5 chips will be 1 …

Mushkin Showcases New Reactor Solid-State Drives

Mushkin Enhanced is about to launch a new series of top-tier SSDs within the framework of Reactor series. The series, represented by three models of 256 GB, 512 GB and 1 TB capacity, is targeting up-to-date gaming and high-performance systems. The greenhorns are developed in 2.5-inch form-factor with 7 mm thickness only and SATA III 6 Gb/sec interface.

Mushkin Reactor drives take Silicon Motion SM2246EN controller in cooperation with MLC NAND flash-memory as the basis. Their utmost sequential data transfer speed equals to 560 Mb/sec and 460 Mb/sec on Read/Write operations respectively, while random data transfer speed achieves 74.000 IOPS and 76.000 IOPS correspondingly.

The triple is thought to operate 1.5 million hours without failures in rather tough conditions (in working environments with up to 70 degrees temperature). All models support TRIM instructions, DevSleep mode that prolongs standalone operation of a mobile device on battery power supply, and the newest …
