AMD Announces the Development of Steamroller

Heightened demand for high-end processor solutions and ever rising competition make AMD constantly develop its products. This usually results in the release of really outstanding items, such as already acknowledged Bulldozer and Piledriver. Therefore, according to the words of the companies technical manager, Mark Papermaster, the development of a new processor architecture, codenamed Steamroller, is already on order of AMD's business. The ready-made products are sure to be released next year. Steamroller is called to become the third edition of Bulldozer architecture that launched last year and a loyal companion of Piledriver core.



The initial data witness that processors on Steamroller architecture will be designed in correspondence with 28 nm technological process. This should favorably affect their efficiency and enlarge the performance by 15-20% at equivalent power consumption and clock frequency. At the same time, Steamroller will improve all specifications implemented in …

BenQ GW2470H: PC Monitor Both for Home & Office Use

BenQ has introduced a new multifunction monitor, targeting both home and corporate users. The GW2470H is a 23-inch solution, based on AMVA+ panel with the integrated LED backlit. It supports Full HD resolution (1920x1080) and its dynamic contrast ratio makes up 20M :1 (3000:1 – static ratio). The maximal brightness equals to 250 cd/m2, while the response time in GtG environment was reduced to 4 ms. Moreover, the display boasts the maximal viewing angles – 178 degrees in both aspects.



BenQ GW2470H comes equipped with two HDMI ports one D-Sub port (video interfaces) as well as one 3.5-mm mini-jack for headphones. The model is housed on a multi-adjustable stand that allows changing the height and tilt alignments.


However, the display is distinguished by its eye-care technologies. It features Flicker-Free technology that eliminates flickering on all brightness levels. In addition, the new-comer supports Low Blue Light option that reduces the ratio of blue light on the …

AMD FX-8300 is Already in Retail Trade

Despite the fact that AMD initially scheduled the official release of FX-8300 for 29 December, this CPU can already be found in some Japanese retail stores. Such sudden appearance in free sale allows all potential consumers to get assured in all claimed specifications. Thus, FX-8300 is an eight-core chip of the new generation that is characterized by 95W TDP level. This is a kind of a breakthrough, since its Vishera companions, FX-8350 and FX-8320, consume up to 125W power.



The reduction of power consumption is explained by the decrease of CPU clock frequencies and nominal voltage showings. Hence, the nominal clock frequency recorded with this CPU model makes up 3.3GHz, while in Turbo mode the frequency rises to 3.6GHz. Some resources state that FX-8300 is able to overclock up to 4.2GHz, however, this info is not vindicated so far. This chip is developed specifically for Socket AM3+.


Taking into account such parameters, analysts feel difficulty in predicting the future of …
