They Did It! Official Release of AMD Radeon HD 7990 ‘Malta’

Much rumored reference graphics adapter from AMD has been recently officially introduced. As it was suggested before, Radeon HD 7990, codenamed ‘Malta’, employs two Tahiti XT2 GPUs, each of which contains 128 TMUs, 32 rasterization blocks (ROPs), and 2048 current processors (GCN architecture). Smooth work of both graphics cores is synchronized by means of PLX PEX8747 controller that supports 48 lines of PCI Express 3.0. Nominal clock frequencies ascribed to GPUs operation equal to 950 MHz, but Turbo mode enables the increase of frequencies up to 1000 MHz.

Video memory is represented by GDDR5 memory modules, the overall capacity of which equals to 6 GB (3 GB per each graphics core). Memory modules utilize 384-bit bus and run at 6000 MHz frequency with bandwidth of 288 Gb/sec per core. The incorporated PCB accommodates a single CrossFireX socket for the creation of various graphics configurations, including Quad-CrossFireX. Video interface panel boasts the availability of …

Thermalright Readies Le Grand Macho Passive Cooler

Thermalright decided to gladden all devotees of ultra-quiet PC systems by designing an efficient passive cooler – Le Grand Macho. This is a conventional tower cooler, supporting new and outdated CPUs of up to 95 W TDP. Hence, the greenhorn is compatible with Intel LGA 775/115x/1366/2011/2011-3 as well as AMD FM2/FM2+/FM1/AM2/AM2+/AM3/AM3+ platforms.

Initially, Thermalright Le Grand Macho is void of any fan; nonetheless, its framework presupposes the installation of one or two high-efficiency fans (120/140 mm), which are able to cope with 300-watt CPUs.

The cooler consists of a nickel-plated base, seven heatpipes and a voluminous aluminum heatsink with 35 fins. The latter come with perforations which counteract air between the plates with low air resistance. The base features a convex-shaped contact surface (that optimizes cooling efficiency) and is perfectly polished. Seven 6-mm heatpipes are solidly integrated into the base, ensuring ideal heat dissipation.
