Greeting 6 New GTX 1080 Videocards from MSI

Unlike the majority of rivals which made it to introduce one or two graphics adapters based on the GeForce GTX 1080 GPU, MSI decided to cover all segments. The company launched six new videocards, based on the Nvidia’s latest development. Each model combines a one-off design with rich functional, allowing gamers of all kinds to find an uncompromising solution. The full list of items includes: GTX 1080 SEA HAWK, GTX 1080 Gaming X 8G, GTX Armor 8G, GTX 1080 Armor 8G OC, GTX 1080 Aero 8G, and GTX 1080 Aero 8G OC.

All new-comers take Nvidia GP104-400 GPU as the basis (Pascal, 16 nm). The core features 2560 CUDA, 160 TMUs & 64 ROPs. It operates at 1607-1708 MHz frequency (base) with the possibility to overclock up to 1733-1847 MHz frequency (dynamic). The cards employ GDDR5X memory (8 GB, 256-bit bus) which nominal clock frequency makes up 2502 -2527 MHz and efficient index achieves some stunning 10100-10108 MHz.

The First Glance at MSI X99S Gaming 9 ACK & Z97 Gaming 9 ACK Mainboards

MSI could not resist the temptation to officially introduce a pair of new gaming mainboards: the X99S Gaming 9 ACK and the Z97 Gaming 9 ACK. The key distinction of new-comers from analogue models without ‘ACK’ attribute lies in the implementation of dedicated gaming network controllers: Qualcomm Atheros Killer 1525 and Killer E2205. The first one is supposed to support 802.11 ac standard that guarantees 867 Mb/sec throughput bandwidth; it also ensures less data deference. This provides for a faster network traffic processing and, as a result, — for a huge advantage in online gaming.

The E-ATX MSI X99S Gaming 9 ACK motherboard is based on Intel X99 chipset, estimated for Intel Core i7-5000 CPUs with Socket LGA2011-v3. The model features 8x DIMM slots for DDR4-333 MHz memory (4-channel operational mode) of up to 128 GB capacity. Storage subsystem offers eight SATA III ports, whereas expansion facilities are ensured by means of five PCI Express 3.0 x16 slots. The list of …

ASRock to Officially Introduce Z87 Extreme 4/Z87 Pro 3 Motherboards in Early June

ASRock is going to officially introduce its two budgetary motherboards (compatible with Intel Haswell processors) in early June. Codenamed ASRock Z87 Extreme 4 and ASRock Z87 Pro 3, these products will cost around $170 and $100 correspondingly. Such attractive price makes them one of the most affordable solutions involving high-efficient CPUs of the next generation.

The more costly motherboard, Z87 Extreme 4, is known to feature only high-quality layout components, including PCB with dual copper layers, chokes with ferrite hub, and durable solid-state capacitors. This model supports DDR3 memory modules of up to 2600 MHz frequency and up to 32 GB capacity. Expansion slots consist of two PCI connectors, two PCI Express 3.0 x1 connectors, and three PCI Express 3.0 x16 connectors.

The connection of internal drives becomes possible due to the availability of eight SATA III sockets. Audio subsystem is realized with the help of 8.1-channel Creative Sound Blaster codec. External …
