Gigabyte GA-F2A78M-D3H: Motherboard with Full Support for AMD Kaveri

Gigabyte has thoroughly prepared for the official launch of hybrid Kaveri APUs from AMD by designing a series of compatible motherboards, including a new micro-ATX GA-F2A78M-D3H model. The board is characterized by the availability of multiple interfaces and expansion slots, despite its modest dimensions (244x244 mm). It is based on AMD A78 chipset, supporting AMD A and Athlon II APUs (of Kaveri generation) for socket FM2+.

The motherboard offers four DIMM slots for the installation of DDR3-2400 MHz modules of up to 64 GB capacity (two-channel mode). It is able to house both, the modules supporting AMD Memory Profile and Intel Memory Profile profiles. Audio subsystem operates under the facilities of an integrated Realtek ALC887 codec; it ensures the production of 7.1-channel HD Audio sounding. Network powers are backed by gigabit Realtek RTL8111E controller.

To continue, the GA-F2A78M-D3H is equipped with four expansion slots, including PCI, PCIe 2.0 x16, PCIe 2.0 x1, and …

Asus Teases Turbo GeForce GTX 1080 Videocard

Asus has just introduced Turbo GeForce GTX 1080 videocard with etalon frequencies & a modified cooler. The model is developed on Nvidia GP104-400 GPU (2560 CUDA, 160 TMUs, 64 ROPs) that operates at 1607/1733 MHz frequency. The integrated GDDR5 memory (8 GB, 256-bit interface, 320 Gb/sec bandwidth) runs at 10 GHz frequency.

The card is coated in a dark-gray cover with logo illumination. The PCB is designed with the help of Auto-Extreme technology as well as Super Alloy Power II hardware. The other peculiar feature is a totally revamped cooling system. As distinct from the etalon model, the Turbo version employs a single fan, based on dual ball-bearings, which pushes hot air away from the GPU.

The greenhorn comes equipped with a pair of HDMI ports for the connection of various devices, including VR-helmets. There are also DVI-D and DisplayPort 1.4 ports. The PCB features a single 8-pin power connector. Asus Turbo GeForce GTX 1080 supports GPU Tweak II & Xsplit Gamecaster …

Raijintek Intros High-Efficiency CPU Cooler Entitled Nemesis

Raijintek, a young but future-proof company, has recently showcased another addition to its CPU cooling solutions – the Nemesis. This is a tower-like model targeting initially overclockers and PC enthusiasts. It features 140x130x166.5 mm dimensions and weighs 1050 g. The fans of extreme cooling can enjoy all privileges of Nemesis right now, since it’s already available for pre-order in the European market for the retail price of 60 EUR.

Raijintek Nemesis consists of a copper base, five nickel-plated U-shape heatpipes, and a pair of asymmetric aluminum heatspreaders, accompanied by two fans of 140x150x25 mm standard. The fans are manipulated by powers of PWM technology, so their speed might vary from 600 RPM to 1400 RPM.

Their unified efficiency achieves 119 CFM of produced airflow; that is quite enough to cool down rather hot CPUs. Moreover, the framework allows to utilize the cooler as in active, so in passive mode when the loading is low.
