Graphics Card Zotac GTX 660 AMP! Edition Review

Up-to-date graphics cards are masterpieces in someway due to their compact dimensions but quite outstanding specifications. Besides, the choice of products is vast, allowing each consumer to find a card exactly to his needs. Graphics cards from Zotac belong to the echelon of high-end solutions, always providing the audience with unique design, improved functionality and performance. The company's latest creation, codenamed GTX 660 AMP! Edition, is a combination of stylish design, high performance and lowered noise level.

Integration and Circuit Board

Graphics card Zotac GTX 660 AMP! Edition is developed under traditional brand design. The only distinguishing feature is the integration of orange fans. The manufacturers decided not to alter the design of circuit board, preserving all modules at definite places. The card is equipped with a single power supply socket which has got convenient localization. Video interface is represented by HDMI, DP and two DVI ports. Vertical …

Intel Unveils Power-Saving Silvermont Architecture

Intel has just unveiled its new advanced working out: power-saving and high-efficient microarchitecture codenamed Silvermont. According to Intel, this architecture is primarily targeting devices with low power consumption and can embrace a vast production segment, starting from smartphones and finishing with datacenters. Silvermont is ready to demonstrate a threefold increase of performance and fivefold decrease of power consumption (with preservation of erstwhile efficiency), if compared with the current generation of Intel Atom cores.

Intel Silvermont has been elaborated in compliance with the norms of 22 nm technological process with the implementation of 3-D Tri-Gate transistors. The employment of new progressive techniques promotes for enhancing the operation speed and reducing energy demand of products which use Silvermont as the basis. Multi-core architecture with the support of up to eight cores ensures higher bandwidth, lower latency and more efficient operation on …

Preview of Intel Itanium 9500 Specifications

The Internet community is actively discussing new Intel's development, processors Poulson, that belongs to the tenth generation of Intel Itanium. All previous data about the upcoming product were vague and void of official proofs. Currently, the data are more ample and allow the community to study the future processor in more details. Thus, Intel Itanium 9500, codenamed Poulson, will be presented by four models the release of which is planned for early autumn.

The crystal of Poulson processor will consist of 3.1 billion transistors that are called to form eight computing cores. Each core counts up 89 million transistors and the pipeline width is doubled to twelve instructions. This way CPU developers implement more efficient approach towards transistor budget. Just for comparison purposes, Poulson's predecessor, Tukwila, counted 109 billion transistors per core.

To continue, Poulson CPUs will accommodate a couple of cache memory arrays, five channels of QPI bus, system …
