Gigabyte introduced a full-color «3D BIOS»

Paying tribute to fashion design that encourages the creation of color, which is smooth and simple, Gigabyte had created something called «3D BIOS», which is actually UEFI, which offers a «more intuitive» way to navigate the menu and set the motherboard settings.

New 3D BIOS allows both novice and mainstream users to get an easier way to interact with the BIOS, which will be first used on the motherboard Gigabyte X79, designed for enthusiasts and overclockers of Sandy Bridge E platform.

Fortunately, the motherboard from Gigabyte will have to double the embodiment of UEFI BIOS, which will ensure its operation both in 3D BIOS, and in extended BIOS mode. Switching between two of these modes will be performed with one mouse click.

But back to the 3D BIOS. The new development is an interface with a rotating perspective view of the motherboard, which allows users to make easy access to various components. It is implemented in such a way: the user moves the mouse over …

Sapphire Offers an Alternative Radeon HD 7870 GHz Graphics Card

Sapphire Technology, a renowned supplier of graphics solutions, has added an alternative model of AMD Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition to its graphics cards model line. The new model is primarily notable by the integration of a two-slot Dual-X cooler that facilitated the process of entitling: Sapphire Radeon HD 7870 GHz Dual-X Edition. This cooler consists of a voluminous aluminum heatsink, a couple of large fans, and a few copper heat pipes which are covered by a plastic lid.

Graphics card Sapphire Radeon HD 7870 GHz Dual-X Edition is based on Pitcairn chip with 1280 current processors; it is developed under 28 nm technological process and Graphics Core Next architecture. The core is able to operate at the nominal 1000 MHz frequency. Blue printed circuit board is the heart of the adapter. PCB is designed particularly for PCI-e 3.0 x16 bus and houses 2GB of GDDR5 memory with 256-bit interface. The memory is capable to achieve the clock frequency of 4800 MHz.

Meeting New GTX 970 DirectCU Mini OC Video Card from Asus

Tailored for mini-ITX motherboards, Asus has designed a new graphics card based on GeForce GTX 970 adapter. The GeForce GTX 970 DirectCU Mini OC features 170x122x40 mm dimensions only, targeting small-sized chassis for mini-ITX platforms. The heart of the card is Nvidia’s GM204-200-A1 GPU with 13 SMM blocks, 1664 CUDA cores, 104 TMUs, and 64 ROPs. It runs at the nominal 1088 MHz frequency but might be overclocked to 1228 MHz index.

Asus GeForce GTX 970 DirectCU Mini OC employs a shortcut PCB that accommodates a two-slot cooler with a vapor chamber, a backplate, and a high-efficiency CoolTech Fan. The latter is distinguished by a unique design that dramatically enhances airflow. The incorporated hardware base features Super Alloy Power design. It implies the inclusion of prime-quality chokes, capacitors, and power transistors. Their combination provides for some incredible efficiency and a prolonged lifespan.

The integrated GPU is accompanied with 4GB of GDDR5 memory; it …
