PowerColor Radeon R9 295X2: High-End Adapter with Two GPUs

PowerColor has recently launched the most powerful in AMD’s Radeon series graphics card, entitled Radeon R9 295X2. The key peculiarity of the model is the availability of two GPUs, which are accompanied by a hybrid cooling system. Such remarkable specifications make the card an ideal solution for advanced gamers and overclocking enthusiasts.

PowerColor Radeon R9 295X2 employs PCI-e 3.0 x16 interface and incorporates a pair of AMD Hawaii XT GPUs (28 nm, GCN 2.0). Each processor features 2816 CUDA cores, 64 ROPs, and 176 TMUs. They operate at the maximal 1018 MHz clock frequency. Each GPU ‘cooperates’ with 4 GB GDDR5 memory (8 GB in total) with 512-bit rails. Its nominal clock frequency makes up 1250 MHz, whereas efficient frequency might reach up 5000 MHz.

This remarkable graphics card is furnished with a hybrid cooler. Both GPUs are taken care by a liquid-cooling solution of enclosed type, power circuits are taken care by air cooling. The latter consists of a fan …

Scythe to Introduce Monochrome Pro and Monochrome Value CPU Coolers

Scythe, an outstanding developer of prime-quality hardware solutions, announces its newest elaborations: the Monochrome Pro and Monochrome Value CPU coolers. Both products are differentiated by truly small-sized dimensions and can be incorporated into the most compact PC cases. The couple supports the latest Intel’s processors, which TDP level does not go beyond 95 W. So far, there is no information about the release date and pricing, however, Scythe promises to unveil the data in the short run.

In terms of framework, CPU cooler Scythe Monochrome Pro consists of an aluminum heatsink and a single fan. It features 112x112x62 mm dimensions and is compatible with Intel LGA 1150/1155/1156 platforms. Running at 800-2800 RPM, it is able to produce up to 52.98 CFM airflow (the minimal airflow index equals to 14.83 CFM). When running at low pace, the noise level stays at the minimal level of 10.2 dB; still, even when the rotational speed achieves its maximum, the noise does not …

Plextor Prepares the Release of M5P SSD

Plextor is currently preparing a new SSD series, codenamed M5P. According to the forecasts, this series will be differentiated by high-performance characteristics and Serial ATA 3.0 interface. M5P will be represented by three models of 128 GB, 256 GB and 512 GB volume capacities. All the model lines are developed with the utilization of 19 nm technological process. In addition, all SSDs will be equipped with NAND flash-memory (MLC Toshiba) and Marvell 88SS9187 controllers.

Three models differ from one another by the flash-memory volume. Thereby, 128 GB models accommodates 256 MB of DDR3 cache-memory, 256 GB model – 512 MB, and the last one, 512 GB model – 768 MB. Those SSDs support SATA 6 Gb/sec.

The manufacturer claim that the maximal consecutive reading and writing speeds will achieve 540 Mb/sec and 340 Mb/sec correspondingly (with 128 GB model); 256 GB and 512 GB models will achieve 540 Mb/sec in reading and 450 Mb/sec in writing mode. At the same time, M5P series …
