New Video Accelerators from AMD Will Be Based on Vega 10 Chips

According to available information, AMD will introduce two new lines of graphics accelerators next quarter. Those are Radeon RX Vega and Radeon RX 500.



Radeon RX Vega will be constructed with Vega architecture based GPU, and Radeon RX 500 will inherit accelerators, built on renamed Polaris series chips, which are well-known due to Polaris 12 chips and Radeon RX 400 cards. It is also reported, that latest driver packages for Linux contain an ID list of devices, designed with a Vega 10 graphics engine.


The data obtained indicate, that in the short term seven devices will be equipped with the Vega 10 chip. In particular, these products will include Radeon RX Vega video cards, alongside with high-end Radeon Instinct and Radeon Pro WX families accelerators.


Please note, that the Radeon RX 500 official announcement is expected to take place on the 18th of April, and Radeon RX Vega will be presented during the Computex 2017 event, which is planned to be conducted in Taipei …

Intel can provide “successor” Core i7-3770K at the beginning of the next year

According to proven sources, Intel is considering the release the more rapid alternative to quad processor Core i7-3770K, which currently heads the line of Ivy Bridge to the mass market. This happens if the Corporation of Santa Clara will feel the hard pressure from the only competitor (AMD), which is actively working on the first chip Piledriver — FX-8350, FX-8320 and FX-8300. The release of a hypothetical «Core i7-3790K» with a frequency of 3.6 GHz can be held in the I quarter 2013.



The version of «3770-th» with blocked by increased factor (without the suffix K) will not be finished later, in the II quarter of next year, will give way to one of the members of the family Haswell.


Accordingly, the reinforcements will receive the platform LGA2011, which now covers the rear of the quad-core Core i7-3820. Strategies at Intel, most probably also will be limited to the addition of 100 MHz. About a year later models Sandy Bridge-E recede into the background in favor of …

Scythe Showcases Asymmetric Byakko CPU Cooler

Scythe, a well-known Japanese manufacturer of cooling solutions, is about to release an uncommon CPU cooler. Entitled Byakko, the Tower model features an asymmetric design: an aluminum heatsink is superseded backwards against the nickel-plated base; such framework ensures an ideal compatibility of the cooler with high RAM modules. Moreover, the item is only 130-mm high, so it can fit any PC case.



Scythe Byakko is reconcilable with the majority of modern platforms, including Intel Socket LGA 1366/115x/775 & AMD Socket FM1/FM2/FM2+/aM2/AM2+/AM3/AM3+. The cooler accommodates three nickel-plated 6-mm heat pipes, replenished by a single 92-mm fan. The Scythe Slip Stream 92 PWM is based on a sleeve bearing. Thanks to the PWM support, the fan is able to rotate within 300-2300 RPM range. Therewith, the maximal noise level does not surpass the margin of 28.26 dBA (the minimal index is 7.2 dBA).


The model is able to produce 6.70-46.55 CFM airflow, depending on the rotational speed. …
