Preliminary specifications and release date of GeForce GTX 6500

On August 16 it is planned to release one of the first mainstream cards Nvidia family Kepler — GeForce GTX 660 Ti. Different sources are still disagree considering its characteristics. It is known that it will be based on the graphic chip GK104 and have a more modest power system than the GTX 670. Crippled in its capability GPU GK104 will form the basis for GeForce GTX 660 and, probably, GTX 650 Ti. Boards of mainstream class and below will use the processor GK107.



Actually, GK107 is already present in the market as part of the line of video cards GeForce GT 640, but it limits the potential by slower memory DDR3. Release of modifications GT 640 with GDDR5 chips on board, according to foreign analytics is just a matter of time.


It is believed that the GeForce GT 640 GDDR5 will receive commercial name GeForce GTX 650. This assumption is not without logic, because it will be easier for Nvidia to sell large quantities of video cards (notice how long the Santa Clara did not …

Plextor Debuts with M.2 6G Solid-State Drive

Plextor, an award-winning Japanese SSD designer, launches its another M.2 solution, codenamed 6G. This drive features 42 mm length only, fulfilling space requirements of small-sized but high-performance cases. The new-comer is available in two capacity variations: 64 GB (PX-64M6G-2242) and 128 GB (PX-128M6G-2242). Their retail price makes up $50 and $90 respectively.



Both Plextor M.2 6G solid-state drives come with PCI Express 2.0 interface. They are based on Marvell 88SS9188 controller and 19 nm MLC NAND flash-memory with Toggle interface (by Toshiba). The models support TRIM and NCQ technologies as well as DEVSLP power-efficient mode that reduces power consumption to 0.2 mW.


As far as speed characteristics are concerned, M.2 6G accelerate up to 520 Mb/sec on sequential Read operations; sequential Write index depends on the model: 160 Mb/sec for 64 GB model and 210 Mb/sec for 128 GB one. At the same time, random Read/Write operational index (4K blocks) makes up …

Point of View strengthens GeForce GTX 680 UltraCharged 4GB of memory

Dutch manufacturer of discrete graphics Point of View considered as a good idea to equip one of the top-end versions GeForce GTX 680 with the prefix UltraCharged with four gigabytes of memory. This graphic card can be a good alternative to existing POV / TGT GTX 680 UltraCharged with 2GB buffer.



The new model, as well as it «precursor», is using the reference design PCB Nvidia with the configuration of additional power connectors PCI-E Power (6 +8)-pin. Typically, the PCB for GeForce GTX 680 is equipped with only four power phases for the GPU, but the version of the UltraCharged Point of View / TGT the fifth one added.


The frequencies remained the same: 1111 MHz for the graphics core (1176 MHz in turbo mode) and 6008 MHz for the 4 GB of memory GDDR5. Under three-slot cooling system, there is GK104 chip in the composition of 1536 shaders and 256-bit memory bus. Point of View marketers emphasize that the graphics processor for the graphics cards GTX 680 UltraCharged …
