Nvidia Titan Z Graphics Card to Be Launched in the Howe of the Year

Nvidia has recently announced the most powerful graphics adapter in its inventory, entitled GeForce GTX Titan Z. The model is primarily outstanding by the incorporation of two high-performance GK110 GPUs, accompanied by the extraordinary memory space. An official launch of this video monster is scheduled for the mid 2014 and the preliminary price tag makes up $2999.

Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan Z is supposed to be a representative of a new generation of graphics solutions, targeting mainly high-efficiency PC systems. In whatever way, the model is not targeting gaming systems, so that its potential could be entirely employed by the developers of audio-video content. As it was mentioned beforehand, the card is based on two Nvidia GK110 chips with the summary 5760 CUDA cores, 96 ROPs, and 448 TMUs. Still, clock frequency index has not been unveiled so far.

Video storage is compiled by 12 GB of GDDR5 memory with 768-bit interface. According to the designers, an efficient memory …

Toshiba Introduces OCZ VT180 & TR150 2.5-Inch SSDs

As part of the Computex 2016, Toshiba introduced a couple of OCZ-branded 2.5-inch SATA solid-state drives. The OCZ VT180 & the OCZ TR150 are available in four capacities: 120 GB, 240 GB, 480 GB & 960 GB. The key differentiation between the two models lies in the choice of memory type; the first SSD employs MLC NAND chips, whereas the second item uses TLC NAND chips. The pair also differs by warranty liabilities, offering 5- and 3-year’s limited packages correspondingly.

Toshiba OCZ VT180 employs SATA III interface, featuring 100.45x69.75x7 mm dimensions. Its sequential Read/Write data transfer speed makes up 550/440 MBs across the line. At the same time, random Read/Write specs vary from 85.000-95.000 IOPS/90.000 IOPS respectively. The drive consumes 3.7 W power in active mode, reducing this level to 0.89 W in standby mode.

This model is estimated for 1.500.000 hours of fool-proof operation. Moreover, it supports such advanced technologies as SMART, TRIM and Idle Time …

Intel Makes an Agreement with ASML to Accelerate 450 mm Wafer Development

The past several days were marked by the Intel's announcement about the celebration of a contract with ASML company. Such step has been dictated by the company's intentions to invest into the development of 450 mm wafers and EUV technologies. In accordance with the preliminary estimates, the general investment rate will reach $4.1 billion. The major target of the cooperation is to decrease the term of lithography equipment commissioning by two years, and stimulate the development of technologies targeted at 450 mm wafers. The implementation of the predesigned plans will allow the manufacturers of semiconductor components to receive a range of benefits, among which is the cut of expenses.

With the purpose to facilitate in the solution of this technological problem, Intel will take part in a dedicated program. This program includes financial backup of scientific and research projects, as well as, equity investing campaigns in ASML.

The initial stage of this program …
