Intel Core i7 CPUs are Already On Sale

Intel launched much talked-about CPU series of Broadwell-E generation, entitled Core i7. The items are based on 14-nm microarchitecture, targeting Socket LGA2011-v3 platforms. In order to integrate them within current lineup of mainboards on Intel X99 chipset, it’s vital to update BIOS.

The series includes 4 processors: a pair of 6-core, one 8-core, and one 10-core units. All of them support Hyper-Threading technology and feature 140 W TDP. Besides, the new-comers employ DDR4 controller that supports DDR4-2400 MHz memory modules.

CPU Intel Core i7-6800K houses 28 PCI Express rails. Thus, it does not support the creation of such graphics configurations as Nvidia SLI or AMD CrossFireX (x16+x16). The unit consists of 6 cores & 12 channels, running at 3.4/3.6 GHz clock frequency. It also accommodates 15 MB of L3 cache. Thus, the price tag makes up $434.

Intel Core i7-6850K features 6 cores, 12 streams & 15 MB cache. It operates at 3.6/3.8 GHz frequency. The price tag …

A Pair of New Graphics Cards Radeon HD 7950 Boost Edition from MSI

MSI has replenished its series of Radeon HD 7950 graphics cards with a pair of new Boost Edition models. Codenamed R7950-3GD5 BE and R7950-3GD5/OC BE, both adapters feature practically identical to the first two releases (of the very series) design. Nonetheless, the novels are known to support AMD ZeroCore with Boost technology that provides for an automatic GPU clock frequency boost on conditions of an increased computing loading. Dynamic clock frequency indices of both models are not so dramatic, since they exceed the nominal showings at 10 MHz only; still, the support of a brand MSI Afterburner utility enables a raise of frequencies to the required level.

The two representatives of MSI Radeon HD 7950 Boost Edition series employ GDDR5 memory with an overall capacity of 3 GB and 384-bit interface. Its nominal clock frequency equals to 1250 MHz, while its efficient frequency achieves 5000 MHz. Memory modules, as well other critical components, are cooled down by a two-slot …

Asus Boasts a New Crossblade Ranger Motherboard of ROG Series

Asus is about to launch a new high-performance motherboard as a part of Republic of Gamers series. The Crossblade Ranger model is developed in ATX form-factor, featuring traditional black-and-red design. It is based on A88X chipset that targets all FM2+ APUs from AMD. According to the manufacturer, the new-comer is able to satisfy the basic needs of inveterate gamers who have at least $150 at their disposal.

The Crossblade Ranger is equipped with 8-phase VRM system, four RAM slots for DDR3 modules, a pair of PCI Express 3.0 x16 slots and a single PCI express 2.0 x16 slot. If there is a need to expand the motherboard’s facilities, a user is able to employ two more PCI Express x1 slots and the same amount of PCI slots. Therefore, it is feasible to organize SLI and CrossFire graphical configurations.

Storage subsystem is represented by eight SATA III 6 Gb/sec ports which support for the creation of varied RAID arrays. Audio subsystem boasts the integration of SupremeFX …
