AMD Outs the World’s First Server FirePro S9300 x2 GPU

AMD has proudly announced the release of the world’s first server-grade graphics accelerator. Entitled FirePro S9300 x2, this GPU is called to facilitate in solving complex computing tasks and take graphics to the next level. The card is linked to the power unit by means of two 8-pin connectors, consuming up to 300 W power at most.

The heart of AMD FirePro S9300 x2 is a bundle of two AMD Fiji GPUs (GCN architecture). They feature a pair of 4096 stream processors and run at 850 MHz frequency. Each GPU employs 4 GB of HBM memory that operates at 1000 MHz clock frequency and offers 512 Gb/sec bandwidth.

The integration of two processing aggregates allows the accelerator to achieve some amazing 13.9 TFLOPS of computing power. As a result, the model exceeds in performance its nearest competitors: Nvidia Tesla K80 with 5.6 TFLOPS as well as Nvidia Tesla M60 with 7.4 TFLOPS.

The support for AMD GPUOpen stack is supposed to be the card’s key advantage. This stack enables …

MSI Unveils GeForce GTX 900 Gaming Graphics Couple

Following a long-lived trend in PC hardware market, MSI has unveiled its two new videocards of GeForce GTX 900 (Maxwell architecture) series just after Nvidia’s official release. The MSI GTX 970 Gaming 4G and the MSI GTX 980 Gaming 4G models boast both, identical and dissimilar features with their reference companions. But all in good time.

Videocards from MSI are characterized by analogous with Nvidia’s models memory subsystem. Hence, it has 4 GB of GDDR5 memory modules with 256-bit interface, 224 Gb/sec bandwidth, and 7010 MHz efficient clock frequency. Quite the contrary, both GPUs differ from the etalons, chiefly due to the integration of Gaming App brand utility; the latter enables GPUs to run in one of three available modes: Silent, Gaming and OC.

The MSI GTX 970 Gaming 4G operates at 1051 MHz/1114 MHz/1140 MHZ at the start (showings for three modes) but might be overclocked to 1178 MHz/1253 MHz/1279 MHz respectively. The MSI GTX 980 Gaming 4G runs at 1140 …

Greeting GT51CA Gaming Desktop from Asus

Asus has just unveiled another representative of ROG lineup – a powerful gaming desktop, entitled GT51CA. The greenhorn boasts an aggressive steel design, replenished by a 4-zone LED backlight. The latter allows choosing among 8 million colors as well as several lighting modes. ‘OC’ mode automatically activates the backlight on overclocking process (by pushing Turbo Gear button). The case features 587x584x262 mm dimensions to fit any environment.

Asus ROG GT51CA comes with one of two available Intel Core CPUs: i5-6600K, running at 3.5/3.9 GHz frequency (4.3 GHz in OC mode), or i7-6700K, yielding 4.0/4.2 GHz frequency (4.6 GHz in OC mode). Both variations are targeting Intel Z170 platform. The CPU is supplemented by DDR4-2133 MHz RAM (16-64 GB capacity). During overclocking its clock frequency might be increased up to 2400-2800 MHz index.

This desktop allows for the integration of one out of 5 permissible graphics cards of Nvidia GeForce series: GTX 970 (GDDR5, 4 GB), …
