Nvidia Makes a Stab at a New GeForce GT 640 Version with GDDR5 Memory

The Internet is filled with rumors about the upcoming release of a new graphics adapter from Nvidia manufacturers. According to the available information, Nvidia is going to update its recently introduced GeForce GT 640 with DDR3 memory type version and to implement advanced tools in their novice product. The implementation of GDDR5 memory will result in the perceptible increase of bandwidth, as well as, of clock speed.

The new graphics card is supposed to exceed its prototype and predecessor in overcklocking showings too. This improvement will be achieved due to the integration of power connector 6-pin PCIe. To contrast both models, the latest version with DDR3 memory employed PCIe expansion slots as power supply tool.

The newer version will be able to operate on 950/5000 MHz, while the older one used to show 797/1782 MHz. GeForce GT 640 (GDDR5) will be based on GK107 processor with 384 CUDA cores and 128-bit memory bus. It is supposed that the memory volume capacity is …

Biostar Added J1800NH2 to Its Mini-ITX Motherboard Line

Biostar, Taiwanese PC hardware guru, has recently launched a new mini-ITX motherboard entitled J1800NH2. The greenhorn is targeting mini-desktop entry-level systems, as well as field-specific platforms, such as information boards, point-of-sale terminals, slim clients, etc. It is compatible with Windows 7/8/8.1 OS and boasts the availability of capacitors with solid-state electrolyte. The recommended retail price makes up $76.

Biostar J1800NH2 is based on Bay Trail-D platform and comes with an integrated 4-core Intel Celeron J1800 processor, featuring 2 MB cache (L2). The CPU operates at 2.41 GHz clock frequency but might be overclocked up to 2.58 GHz margin. The model also boasts an integrated Intel HD Graphics chip that runs at 668 MHz (nominal)/792 MHz (overclocked) frequency. It is cooled by a small-sized aluminum heatsink, sustaining the specified 10 W TDP level.

To continue, this motherboard is equipped with two SO-DIMM slots for the installation of DDR3-1333 MHz …

HIS Teases New Radeon R9 280X IceQ Boost Clock Graphics Card

HIS is glad to introduce one more high-end solution: the Radeon R9 280X IceQ Boost Clock graphics card that is targeting high-performance PC systems. The model employs turbine-type cooling system with a branded IceQ cooler. It consists of a voluminous copper base (35x28 mm), an aluminum heatsink, four nickel-plated heat-pipes (2x 8 mm and 2x 6 mm), as well as a single 80 mm turbine fan. Such cooling is ideal for multi-GPU configurations in AMD CrossFireX mode, since the distance between adapters does not influence the efficiency of their fans.

The new-comer is based on AMD Radeon R9 280X GPU (28 nm, GCN) with 2048 stream processors. It runs at standard frequencies: 850 MHz – nominal and 1000 MHz – dynamic. Memory is introduced by 3 GB GDDR5 modules, which run at standard 1500 MHz frequencies and reach some 6000 MHz effective index.

To continue, HIS Radeon R9 280X IceQ Boost Clock features four connectivity interfaces: a pair of mini-DisplayPort ports, one DVI-I and …
