Welcome Specialties by PowerColor – AXRX 580 4GBD5-3DHDV2/OC and AXRX 580 8GBD5-3DHDV2/OC Graphics Cards

PowerColor continues to broaden its video cards range and releases two novelties of the Radeon RX 580 line – Red Dragon V2 OC of the 4 and 8 GB memory capacity. Codenames of these devices are AXRX 580 4GBD5-3DHDV2/OC and AXRX 580 8GBD5-3DHDV2/OC.



Frequency rates of 4 GB and 8 GB Radeon RX 580 Red Dragon V2 OC differ. The sample with 4 GB GDDR5 features the 1,350/1,750 (7,000) MHz (core/memory) values, and the model with 8 GB buffer VRAM operates at 1,350/2,000 (8,000) MHz. The factory core clock equals to 10 MHz, however, practically the difference may be greater owing to dynamic overclocking technology peculiarities of the PowerColor cards and the reference Radeon RX 580 sample. The manufacturer has not overclocked memory chipsets.


The Red Dragon V2 OC cooling system is designed with at least one copper nickel-plated heat pipe, an aluminium plates array and two 80 mm fans. PowerColor AXRX 580 4GBD5-3DHDV2/OC and AXRX 580 8GBD5-3DHDV2/OC are approximately 25 cm long and …

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.



Integration


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 …

Scythe Showcases a New Affordable Kotetsu Cooler

Scythe has recently showcased its newest CPU cooling system with an expressive codename Kotetsu. Relying much on the demands of average customers, the product offers an optimal correlation of efficiency and price. The Kotetsu is an ordinary tower-like product with a perfect cooling potential. However, its key advantage is the employment of Hyper Precision Mounting System, which ensures fast and trouble-free installation.



First and the foremost, Scythe Kotetsu is ready to work with all current CPU platforms, including Intel Socket LGA1150 and AMD Socket FM2+. Heat dissipation efficiency is realized thanks to a large number of aluminum fins, incorporated into the heatsink, as well as four heat-pipes of 6 mm each. The heatsink features an extraordinary shape that ameliorates the airflow between the fins. Therein, contact base is entirely made of copper.


Second of all, this cooler is initially equipped with one 120 mm fan, entitled Scythe Glide Stream. Due to PWM support, it …
