Zalman Showcases a New GV Series of Power Supplies

Zalman is glad to introduce its fresh PSU series, entitled GV. Pursuant to the manufacturer, these power supplies are intended for the support of high-efficiency components. Taking into account the demands of contemporary PCs, Zalman equips the GV units with a single +12V bus that is able to endure high current capability. Upon the whole, the new series embraces three models: ZM500-GV (500W), ZM600-GV (600W), and ZM700-GV (700W).

All Zalman GV PSUs employ non-modular cable design and high-quality Dual-Forwarding Switching schemes. Those schemes allow for the decrease of losses on switching and for the lowering of operational temperatures. Thanks to this innovation, an overall efficiency of all units approximates 88%; such index is vindicated by 80Plus Bronze certificate.

Cooling of all internal hardware pieces is organized by efforts of a sole 120 mm fan. A comprehensive set of protection options saves all components from a variety of glitches (OVP, SCP, OPP, OCP, UVP), …

Motherboard Gigabyte GA-F2A85X-UP4 Review

The second generation of AMD A-Series hybrid processors, announced earlier in October, are already integrated in a number of graphics solutions. The newly appeared products are compatible with Socket FM2 only and cannot be applied for Socket FM1 infrastructure. This implies that a number of motherboards lose their upgrade facilities and can't be updated with a new advanced solution. Still, the market is currently ready to present a few boards destined to operate with the updated AMD A-Series. Gigabyte is one of the pioneers in this respect, introducing its motherboard GA-F2A85X-UP4, developed specifically for Socket FM2.


Gigabyte GA-F2A85X-UP4 is designed in ATX form-factor with 305x244 mm PCB dimensions. AMD A85X chipset is a heart of the motherboard; it secures the compatibility with A-Series (second gen.) APU and Athlon CPUs in the implementation of Socket FM2. The overall TDP level claimed for the model is not more than 100W. The PCB allots four DIMM slots …
