Intel will lower prices for old and new SSD-drives

Over time, more and more manufacturers of computer equipment are connected to the production of solid-state drives. Conventional consumer SSD are fairly simple to manufacture and chip NAND flash memory and controllers are always available from proven companies. Of all the manufacturers of SSD for the mass market, Intel maybe has not best reputation, still quite high. Using this, the Corporation of Santa Clara sets high prices of their SSDs, not fearing for the sales.

However, as suggested by experts, the pressure from competitors will still force Intel company

to go for price concessions for customers. Reducing of prices on popular drives series SSD

320, SSD 330 and SSD 520 is expected in August this year. Top products will lose most of

all, but also drives of the entry level, in particular 330-series, will be much more accessible to


Below are stated all prices and possible devaluation. Old price is indicated in parentheses.

HIS Marvels Customers with an Overclocked Radeon HD 7850 Graphics Card

HIS has supplemented its line of Radeon HD 7850 graphics adapters with a new outstanding model, codenamed HIS 7850 iPower IceQ X² Turbo. It is primarily distinguished from the reference model by a modified design and overclocked frequencies. Another distinguishing feature is that the card will be delivered along with a brand iTurbo utility; it is called to facilitate the adjustment of all key graphics parameters and optimize its efficiency level.

HIS 7850 iPower IceQ X² Turbo is based on AMD Pitcairn Pro GPU developed on GCN architecture (28 nm technological process). Its nominal clock frequency has been increased from 860 MHz to 1000 MHz. Memory subsystem is introduced by 256-bit GDDR5 memory modules, the overall capacity of which achieves 2 GB. Their nominal clock frequency index equals to 1200 MHz, while effective frequency approximates 4800 MHz.

Cooling of all crucial components is imposed upon a brand two-slot IceQ X² system. It is characterized by a better …
