Gigabyte Shows Off a Bespoke GTX 970 Graphics Card

Gigabyte has intrigued its fans by the design of an unusual videocard – the GeForce GTX 970 (GV-N970TTOC-4GD). It is based on Nvidia GM-204-200-A1 GPU (Maxwell) but with overclocked frequencies. The core operates at 1101 MHz/1241 MHz instead of etalon 1050 MHz/1178 MHz. The GPU is accompanied with 4 GB of GDDR5 memory (256-bit bus) that runs at 7010 MHz efficient clock frequency.

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 970 is distinguished by the implementation of Twin Turbo Fan cooling system. It consists of three copper heatpipes with direct touch technology, an aluminum heatsink, and a radial-flow fan; the latter grasps air from both sides of the adapter due to the shortened PCB design.

As a result, the airflow increases by 24%, whereas the cooling effect enhances by 29%. Thanks to this, the card is thought to be an optimal solution for Nvidia SLI configurations.

It should be noted that this graphics card boasts a high-quality hardware base – Ultra Durable VGA. A set of external …

SSDs Corsair Neutron and Corsair Neutron GTX Review

Current conjuncture in the market of drives proves that SSDs do not require special advertising. Their demand index rises every single day, along with the increasing supply. Corsair, a well-known manufacturer of various PC hardware solutions, has successfully 'assimilated' advanced LAMD LM87800 controllers, and developed two SSD items at once based on this controller. Codenamed Corsair Neutron and Corsair Neutron GTX, these drives are intended at different customer audiences. Both models feature similar internal layout, but differ in the integrated interfaces and memory types.


Model Corsair Neutron is considered to be cheaper than GTX version, so its specifications are more modest. It employs MLC flash-memory type with ONFI interface developed under 25 nm technological process. Its companion, Corsair Neutron GTX, belongs to the high-end SSD echelon and employs MLC flash-memory type with Toggle Mode interface designed under 24 nm technological process. Both …

Adata Announces a Couple of External High-Speed DashDrive Elite SSDs

Adata Technology, a Taiwanese manufacturer of RAM modules and diverse flash peripherals, announces the release of two new external solid-state drives that entered DashDrive Elite lineup. Codenamed SE720 and SE810, this couple positions itself quite differently: the first model is oriented at OS Windows users, while the second model is targeting Mac users. Despite diverse predestination, both drives are ready to offer high performance combined with extreme reliability.

Adata DashDrive Elite SE720 will be available in two flash-memory capacities: 128 GB and 256 GB. Each model features a thin, stainless metallic case with 8.9 mm depth and scratch-proof surface. These solid-state drives employ USB 3.0 interface and are powered via USB cable. They are known to support a built-in option of quick backup, which is enabled just by pressing one button. Additionally, SE720 drives have got a convenient LED indication system that notifies the user about the data transfer process.
