Gigabyte Intros Affordable GA-B85M-D2V Plus Mainboard

Micro-ATX/mini-ITX mainboards keep on capturing the market due to the augmentation of small-sized PC platforms. Against this background, Gigabyte is constantly enlarging its portfolio of compact motherboards. Take GA-B85M-D2V Plus alone. This model might boast an optimized functional and an improved audio subsystem combined with a sleek design and a range of protection doo-dads.



Gigabyte GA-B85M-D2V Plus takes Intel B85 chipset as the basis. The latter supports Socket LGA1150 CPUs (Pentium, Celeron, Intel Core). The company’s designers employed an improved fiberglass mode of superposition on elaboration of PCB textolite; this is called to protect the board from humidity, electrostatic discharge and voltage instability.


The board’s layout supports Ultra Durable 4 Plus design that involves only high-quality components, like solid-state capacitors, transistors with low open channel resistance. The PCB is equipped with two DIMM slots ready for 16 GB of DDR3 memory (1600 …

Greeting PowerColor Radeon R9 290X New-Generation Graphics Cards

PowerColor has officially introduced a pair of high-efficiency graphics cards developed on the new-generation Radeon R9 290X series adapters. Codenamed PowerColor Radeon R9 290X, both new-comers support the latest graphics technologies, i.e. DirectX 11.2 and OpenGL 4.2. The models feature a totally identical design, still there is one differentiation: one of the models is equipped with a key to Battlefield 4 game. Such ‘bonus’ has resulted in a bit heightened price of $580, if compared with the standard model that costs $550.



Both cards are based on AMD Hawaii XT chip. It has been dynamically overclocked by PowerColor to 1030 MHz, whereas the nominal clock frequency remained the same – 800 MHz. In order to enhance the performance, the GPU has been supplemented with 4 GB of GDDR5 memory with 512-bit interface that runs at 5000 MHz.


To proceed with the specifications, both graphics adapters accommodate four rear video ports (HDMI, DisplayPort, DVI-I, and DVI-D). …

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.
