MSI Launches Z87 MPower MAX AC Overclocking Motherboard

All PC enthusiasts and overclockers are now able to enjoy all the privileges of a wireless connection thanks to a new release from MSI. The company’s latest addition to Z87 motherboard series – the Z87 MPower MAX AC – might boast the incorporation of Intel Dual Band module that supports Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac and Bluetooth 4.0 connections. Moreover, due to the employment of two frequency bands (2.4/5 GHz), the speed of wireless data transfer achieves 867 Mb/sec.



It goes without saying that MSI Z87 MPower MAX AC is based on Intel Z87 Express chipset that supports Intel Haswell CPUs for socket LGA1150. All system components are soldered on a black-and-yellow 6-layer PCB; hardware base is implemented according to MSI Military Class 4 concept. Here, one may find Solid CAP capacitors, Dark Choke throttles, and DrMOS voltage regulators.


The PCB contains four DIMM slots for the installation of DDR3 memory modules (up to 16 GB) with the maximal clock frequency of 3000 MHz. …

Elsa to Replenish the Line of Graphics Cards with GeForce GTX 670

Elsa Technology has announced the future release of its alternative version of graphics adapter Nvidia GeForce GTX 670. The new model is developed according to 28 nm technological process and employs GK104 chip with 1344 CUDA cores. It also boasts the implementation of advanced architecture, called Kepler. The major distinction of Elsa GeForce GTX 670 from its reference models is the integration of Silent Air Cooling technology (SAC).



This model is based on blue circuit board destined for PCI Express 3.0 x16 bus. Elsa graphics card is equipped with GDDR5 memory type (256 bit interface) and has got 2048 Mb of overall volume capacity. The backplate is assigned for a couple of DVI ports, a single HDMI, and one DisplayPort 1.2 port. This graphics adapter is compatible with DirectX 11 and employs Nvidia FXAA and Nvidia TXAA technologies for the improvement of imaging. It also supports Adaptive Vsync mode for more smooth games playback, as well as, Nvidia SLI, Nvidia 3D Vision, Nvidia …

The single-board Hardkernel Odroid-XU4Q PC Got a Massive Heatsink Instead of a Fan

The single-board Odroid-XU4 PC by Hardkernel, released in 2015, has got its new modified successor, called Odroid-XU4Q, which allows to construct devices for smart houses and Internet of things. There are no profound changes, though. A new version obtained a rather large sized (40 х 40 х 25 mm) heatsink instead of a low-profile fan. Such a solution makes the PC operation completely silent.



The board is based on the Samsung designed Exynos 5422 processor; the chipset is built on the ARM big.LITTLE architecture – it has four Cortex-A15 cores with up to 2.0 GHz clock speed and four Cortex-A7 cores with up to 1.4 GHz frequensy. The integrated Mali-T628 MP6 controller provides graphics processing.


The novelty from Hardkernel features 2 GB of RAM, a microSD card slot, one HDMI 1.4, one USB 2.0, two USB 3.0 and Gigabit Ethernet interfaces. The flash module capacity can be equal to 16, 32 or 64 GB.


Customers can purchase a monoboard ODROID-XU4Q PC at the approximate $60 …
