Asus Launches Ultra-wide PC Monitor MX299Q

Asus announces the release of a new 29-inch ultra-wide PC monitor MX299Q that enters the ranges of Designo series. The model differentiates itself, in the first place, by an unusual height-to-width aspect ratio of 21:9 and an enhanced resolution of 2560x1080 pixels. According to the manufacturer, the monitor is able to propose much more than the above mentioned facilities only: i.e. 100% accurate color rendering and an improved sounding of onboard audio system. Therefore, MX299Q is the best choice for gamers, graphics designers and professionals who used to work with high-efficiency applications.

The heart of Asus MX299Q is AH-IPS panel with a power-saving LED backlit. This panel provides for wide viewing angles (178/178 degrees V/H), utmost brightness (maximal index makes up 300 cd/m2), quick response time (5 ms), and high dynamic contrast index of 80M:1. A set of video interfaces consists of Dual-Link DVI port, DisplayPort and HDMI port with the support of MHL interface for …

Meeting Ballistix Elite DDR4 Memory from Micron Technology

As part of Crucial brand, Micron Technology comes out with a new generation of RAM – the Ballistix Elite DDR4. It is developed in a pure black PCB with a powerful heatspreader and an integrated thermal sensor. Initially, the company releases planks of 4 GB and 8 GB, although in retail sale the products will be available in 8 GB, 16 GB, and 32 GB kits. Pricing is unknown so far.

Crucial Ballistix Elite DDR4 memory operates at 2666 MHz frequency and boasts 21 Gb/sec throughput index. Its power-efficient facilities are 40% better than those inherent in DDR3 models with analogous clock frequency. This makes gaming process a delight due to intense responsiveness, optimized latencies, and increased frame rates.

The modules support XMP 2.0 profiles as well as Ballistix Memory Overview Display utilities; the latter track the performance of each module, analyzing temperature, voltage and frequency showings in real time. Furthermore, Micron Technology makes its DDR4 compatible …

New characteristics of co-processors Xeon Phi

For several years, developed Intel Larrabee graphics cards have changed its destiny, and now proudly referred to coprocessors Xeon Phi. The June announcement gave a very rough idea of ​​their characteristics and applications (highly specialized servers and workstations). Now some details will be revealed.

Bboosters Xeon Phi will be available in versions with 57, 60 and 61 core. There are in general 64 computational units, but some of them will be disabled. Depending on the number of cores the cache size varies from 1.8-1.9 MB first level and 28-30,5 MB second. The volume of onboard GDDR5 memory is 3, 6, and 8 GB.

Intel Xeon Phi device will operate on a low clock rate from 600-1100 MHz for the lower 57-core models with 3 and 6 GB of GDDR5, to the 630-1050 MHz or more for the older 60 — and 61-core board with 8 GB of RAM. Effective memory frequency will be in the range of 5-5.5 GHz. Support for dynamic overclocking Turbo Boost will be provided by reasonable balance of …
