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 …

Nvidia Titan Z Graphics Card to Be Launched in the Howe of the Year

Nvidia has recently announced the most powerful graphics adapter in its inventory, entitled GeForce GTX Titan Z. The model is primarily outstanding by the incorporation of two high-performance GK110 GPUs, accompanied by the extraordinary memory space. An official launch of this video monster is scheduled for the mid 2014 and the preliminary price tag makes up $2999.

Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan Z is supposed to be a representative of a new generation of graphics solutions, targeting mainly high-efficiency PC systems. In whatever way, the model is not targeting gaming systems, so that its potential could be entirely employed by the developers of audio-video content. As it was mentioned beforehand, the card is based on two Nvidia GK110 chips with the summary 5760 CUDA cores, 96 ROPs, and 448 TMUs. Still, clock frequency index has not been unveiled so far.

Video storage is compiled by 12 GB of GDDR5 memory with 768-bit interface. According to the designers, an efficient memory …
