Gigabyte Outs a Pair of GT 710 Graphics Cards

Gigabyte has just announced the release of two entry-level graphics cards (with 1 GB or 2 GB DDR3) based on Nvidia’s GeForce GT 710 adapter. The company’s elaboration boasts the implementation of Ultra Durable 2 design that combines top-quality hardware base, reliability and high performance. The card comprises an improved PCB with the best-in-class solid-state capacitors, transistors as well as ferrite chokes.

Despite low-profile orientation, Gigabyte GeForce GT 710 employs active cooling system. The latter consists of a small-sized heatsink and a fan. In terms of efficiency, the company decided to preserve etalon showings; hence, the GPU (GK208, Kepler architecture, 192 CUDA cores) operates at 954 MHz frequency. Yet, the models come equipped with an overclocked memory: 900 MHz/1800 MHz (base/dynamic) frequency.

The kit of external interfaces includes three video ports: D-Sub, DVI-D & HDMI. Moreover, the nominal delivery set contains OC Guru II software package. It …

Meet a New 1200 W PSU SuperNova P2 from Evga

Evga, an award-winning American designer of hardware products for enthusiasts, is about to release a really hard-hitting power supply unit of enthusiast-level – the SuperNova 1200 P2.

The following power supply unit is furnished with a single +12V rail that is estimated for 99.0 A current intensity. The layout houses first-rate Japanese capacitors with a solid electrolyte, a vertical two-layer main …

Plextor Debuts with M.2 6G Solid-State Drive

Plextor, an award-winning Japanese SSD designer, launches its another M.2 solution, codenamed 6G. This drive features 42 mm length only, fulfilling space requirements of small-sized but high-performance cases. The new-comer is available in two capacity variations: 64 GB (PX-64M6G-2242) and 128 GB (PX-128M6G-2242). Their retail price makes up $50 and $90 respectively.

Both Plextor M.2 6G solid-state drives come with PCI Express 2.0 interface. They are based on Marvell 88SS9188 controller and 19 nm MLC NAND flash-memory with Toggle interface (by Toshiba). The models support TRIM and NCQ technologies as well as DEVSLP power-efficient mode that reduces power consumption to 0.2 mW.

As far as speed characteristics are concerned, M.2 6G accelerate up to 520 Mb/sec on sequential Read operations; sequential Write index depends on the model: 160 Mb/sec for 64 GB model and 210 Mb/sec for 128 GB one. At the same time, random Read/Write operational index (4K blocks) makes up …
