The Intel Company Is Going to Give a Roland for an Oliver to AMD Ryzen

A short while ago the French Canard PC Hardware magazine has reported, that Intel is going to give fitting reply to AMD Ryzen pilot projects and plans to release two new Kaby Lake-S CPUs.



The first processor is expected to be launched under the Intel Core i7-7740K codename. It will get four compute cores with Hyper-Threading support, 8 MB of tertiary memory cache, unlocked multiplier and the 100 W basic TDP rate. Operating frequencies will lie in the range of 4.3–4.6 GHz in the Turbo Boost mode.


The second specialty is Core i5-7640K with four cores and 4–4.4 frequency of operation. It also features 6 MB of L3 cache, 100 W TDP and the support of Hyper-Threading technology, though we can’t be sure as for the last-named specification. One should admit, that heretofore only the Intel Core i7 line offered multithreading in its 4-core desktop processors.

PowerColor Outs an Overclocked Radeon R9 270 OC Graphics Card

Along with other AMD partners, PowerColor has elaborated its own version of Radeon R9 270 adapter. The PowerColor Radeon R9 270 OC is differentiated from rival products by an improved cooling system and factory overclocked frequencies. Its release is scheduled for late November and the retail price won’t hit over $180.



To begin with, this graphics card is naturally based on AMD Curacao Pro GPU, developed under 28 nm technological process. It consists of 1280 current processors, 32 ROPs and 64 TMUs. The core runs at 930 MHz frequency and is able to gain 955 MHz frequency on overclocking. The incorporation of GDDR5 memory (2 GB) with 256-bit bus interface ensures some striking bandwidth of 180 Gb/sec; this provides for the support of gaming applications with high resolution. Memory chip operates at 1400 MHz nominal frequency but might gain the index of 5600 MHz of effective frequency on overclocking.

Asustor Launches a Pair of AS 5 Series NAS

Asustor, a renowned Taiwanese network systems developer, comes to the market with a couple of new NAS devices which supplemented AS 5 series. The AS5008T and the AS5108T feature eight bays (each) for the drives with the maximal capacity of 48 TB. All the drives might be combined into a range of configurations, including JBOD, Single, Hot Spare, RAID 1/5/6/10. The pair is backed by a 3-year’s limited warranty.



Asustor AS 5 models cooperate with ADM 2.3 OS and come with an integrated firewall. They are thought to support Cloud Connect technology as well as power-saving Energy Saver features. Both NAS boast the support for AES-256 encoding algorithm and LooksGood utility (plus its mobile version – AiVideo). The latter provides for the playback of digital TV, record of TV-programs, and playback of videos from NAS into a mobile device.


Asustor AS5108T features the following specifications:


— dimensions: 215.5x293x230 mm;

— CPU: Intel Celeron, clock frequency …
