Intel is preparing a quad-core Core i7-3740QM, 3840QM and 3940XM

In late September — early October, Intel plans to update the lineup of Core i7 processors on the cores generation Ivy Bridge (22 nm). It is expected that within a few months users will witness the announcement of the CPU for laptops Core i7-3740QM, 3840QM and 3940XM, which will replace released in April 3720QM, 3820QM and 3920XM, respectively.

According to the information from web resources, the trio will receive an increase of 100 MHz from the predecessors, retaining the previous TDP and probably the recommended price. A common feature of the new processors is four x86-cores that handle data in 8 threads (Hyper-Threading).

Core i7-3940XM operates at a nominal frequency of 3 GHz, equipped with 8 MB cache of the third level, two-channel controllers DDR3-1333/1600, graphics subsystem Intel HD 4000. There is support for dynamic overclocking Turbo Boost, Virtualization VT-x and VT-d, new commands AES and instructions AVX. TDP 3940XM is 55 watts.

Core i7-3840QM has almost …

Motherboard Asus Crosshair V Formula-Z Review

Asus has been taking a leading position in the supply of motherboards to the PC hardware market for a long time. For example, its Republic of Gamers series has been enjoying great popularity among customers for more than six years already. Besides, the company was a pioneer to introduce ROG in its products to guarantee an unmatched performance and wide range of available facilities. Crosshair model was the first to implement ROG in its basis, and the latest Asus Crosshair V Formula-Z motherboard is a direct follower of this approach.


Motherboard model Crosshair V Formula-Z is developed in ATX form-factor (305x244 mm dimensions), employs AMD 990FX/SB950 chipset and is ready to house CPUs from AMD AM3+ (Sempron 100/Athlon II/Phenom II/FX). Memory subsystem consists of four DIMM slots estimated for DDR3 memory type that is able to operate in two-channel mode at 1066MHz-2400MHz frequency. The model is known to support Extreme Memory Profile options and is compatible …

Graphics Adapter Gigabyte GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost with Modified Frequencies

Taking the lead from a number of Nvidia’s partners, Gigabyte has launched its own sample piece of GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost graphics adapter. It is differentiated primarily by modified GPU and memory frequencies, as well as by an improved PCB design. The latter employs Ultra Durable 2 technology that stipulates the implementation of high-quality hardware components, including ferrite chokes, solid-state capacitors, and Low RDS Mosfets transistors with reduced resistance on mode changes.

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost is based on GK106 GPU, developed under 28 nm technological process. Its nominal frequency has been increased from the reference 980 MHz to 1033 MHz, while its dynamic frequency has been changed from 1032 MHz to 1098 MHz. This graphics adapter is furnished with 1 GB of GDDR5 memory, which clock frequencies have been, vice versa, lowered: nominal index dropped from 1502 MHz to 1250 MHz, dynamic index dropped from 6008 MHz to 5000 MHz.

This model employs …
