New Voluminous External SSDs with Thunderbolt Ports from LaCie

Demands of customers towards external SSD solutions are even tougher than towards traditional built-in drives. This is primarily explained by the aesthetic considerations, and secondly, by the space taken by the device. LaCie has recently announced the release of two external SSD models which are differentiated by an extraordinary design. The upcoming drives are codenamed LaCie Little Big Disk Thunderbolt and will be delivered in two capacity variations: 512 GB and 1 TB. Last year the manufacturer introduced a similar model line but with smaller capacity (up to 240 GB) and different interface (SATA II).

New LaCie LittleBig Disk Thunderbolt drives feature SATA III interface and are based on two 2.5-inch SSDs. Those drives might be combined into different RAID configurations (RAID 0, 1). Upon the whole, the models are housed in ultramodern aluminum casing which serves two purposes: aesthetic and practical. Their design can be described as stylish and refined, while the casing …

Palit Showcases GeForce GTX 750 and 750 Ti Adapters from StormX Series

In less than a couple of days the whole galaxy of graphics cards manufacturers has launched their products, based on Nvidia GeForce GTX 750 and 750 Ti GPUs. Palit is not an exception. It has unveiled three proprietary versions of cards, codenamed GeForce GTX 750 StormX OC, GeForce GTX 750 Ti StormX OC, GeForce GTX 750 Ti StormX Dual. The triple boasts a substantial factory overclocking and the implementation of a brand new cooling design.

Palit GeForce GTX 750 StormX OC is based on a fresh Nvidia GM107-300 (Maxwell architecture) GPU. Its nominal and dynamic frequency has been boosted from 1020/1085 MHz to 1085/1163 MHz correspondingly. The improvement has touched also video memory (1 GB GDDR5): its nominal and efficient frequency has been raised from 1250/5000 MHz to 1275/5100 MHz. The incorporation of StormX cooler with TurboFan Blade 80 mm fan ensures that all internal components preserved optimal thermal conditions.

Palit GeForce GTX 750 Ti StormX OC comes with Nvidia …

PowerColor Intros New Graphics Card with Fling Force Cooler

TUL Corporation, in the framework of its PowerColor brand, introduces a new graphics card with quite an original way of air cooling organization. The new-coming adapter, codenamed PowerColor Radeon HD 7850 Fling Force, employs 'two-storied' cooler of an unusual structure. Along with an aluminum heatsink, copper heat pipes, and a voluminous fan, the manufacturer implemented non-monolithic fan ribs. Their tips are fixed to the main part in a way to change their location relative to the plain of rotation.

On conditions of low rotational speed, tips of the ribs are located at approximately 80 degrees angle relative to the graphics card. On conditions of heightened speed, the ribs become more linear; this way, the impeller diameter enlarges from 92 mm to 95 mm. Such structural approach to the fan framework develops into an improved performance and air cooling effect.

The model is based on Pitcairn chip, developed on Graphics Core Next architecture under 28 nm technological …
