AMD Launches a New Driver Package Catalyst 13.8 Beta2

AMD has launched a second version of driver package Catalyst 13.8 that is called to dramatically enhance the efficiency in some games. The soft is compatible with Windows 8/7/Vista OS (32-/64-bit), supporting AMD Radeon (5000/6000/7700/7800/7900 series) and AMD Mobility Radeon (5000M/6000M/7000M/8000M series) GPUs.



Users can expect the following improvements:

— the resolution of problems with the image quality in ‘Van Helsing’ on anti-aliasing activation via Catalyst Control Center;

— the minimization of frame pacing delays in ‘Sniper Elite’, ‘Watch Dogs’, ‘World of Warcraft’, and ‘Tomb Raider’;

— the elimination of game image distortion in ‘Doom 3 BFG Edition’;

— the increase in efficiency in ‘Minimum’ (in CrossFireX), ‘Castlevania Lords of Shadow’ (in CrossFireX), and ‘RIPD’;

— the 9% increase in fps efficiency in ‘Splinter Cell Blacklist’ (Ultra settings);

— the 25% increase in efficiency in ‘Saints Row …

The 16 nm Colorful iGame GTX 1080 Ti Vulcan X OC Video Adapter Features Essential Overclocking

Enthusiasts are in anticipation of the iGame GTX 1080 Ti Vulcan X OC video card retail launch, which is coming soon. The highlight of this Colorful product is the LCD-display on the cooler case reflecting key operational options of the device.



iGame GTX 1080 Ti Vulcan X OC is based on the NVIDIA GP102 processor with Pascal architecture. The profile of this 16 nm specialty includes 3,584 streaming processors, 224 TMUs, as well as 88 ROPs. The GDDR5X memory capacity comes up to 11 GB.


The Colorful graphics card obtained the striking factory overclock. The adapter GPU clock is 1,480 MHz, and the boost clock equals to 1,582 MHz. The novelty works at the 1.6 GHz basic frequency, however, the ultimate clock speed is 2 GHz.


A powerful cooler with three 92 mm fans and six heat pipes ensures proper chilling of this graphics accelerator. Thus, we can assume, that this product weighs much.


Unfortunately, we have no data about the cost of iGame GTX 1080 Ti Vulcan X OC.

Intel Broadwell CPUs will Get BGA Casing

The Internet community is energetically discussing unofficial info concerning the future Intel's Broadwell processors. According to the yet unacknowledged data, Intel will branch off from currently traditional LGA casings in favor to a more advanced BGA solution. At present all CPUs designed by Intel specifically for desktop platforms feature LGA (Land Grid Array) casings which allow the users to upgrade their systems without any hassle. On LGA implementation, the chip is housed within a socket and contacts with the motherboard. As a result, the user might change one chip to the other only with similar set of contacts.



The launch of Intel Broadwell processors, which is planned for 2014, might dramatically change the situation for customers. Most probably Intel will refuse from LGA casings and accommodate all new CPUs in BGA ones, marking the change of Haswell generation to the future Broadwell generation developed under 14 nm technological process. BGA (Ball Grid Array) …
