Outstanding performance, factory overclocking, high-quality hardware basis, and an upgraded cooling system, codenamed Windforce 3X 450W, make this product a cherished acquirement.

Gigabyte GV-N770OC-2GD is based on GK104 graphics core, designed under 28 nm Kepler micro-architecture. This GPU features 1536 CUDA cores, 128 TMUs and 32 ROPs. Its nominal clock frequency makes up 1137 MHz, while the support of GPU Boost 2.0 technology overclocks the card up to 1187 MHz.

Upon the whole, this card employs PCI Express 3.0 x16 interface and houses two additional PCI power sockets (6-contact and 8-contact). A panel of external interfaces boasts the availability of four video outputs, including DisplayPort, HDMI, DL …

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);

Haswell processors for laptops will consume up to 57 W, desktop - up to 100

Intel provides with three graphics levels: GT1, GT2 and GT3. Desktop processors won’t receive graphics performance higher than GT2, but mobile processors will be able to boast of with GT3 class. Support of PCI Express 3.0 for Haswell processors will be quite usual characteristics, but at the memory controller little progress is seen — yet provides dual-channel DDR3-1600.

By energy consumption Haswell desktop versions will be divided into models with values of 35, 45, 65 and 95 watts of TDP level. For mobile processors the values are ​​37, 47 and 57 W. Finally, ultra book processors with built-in system logic will be filled by TDP level not more than 15 watts. It is assumed that this will enable them, among other things, be in standby mode up to 10 days without charge.

The desire of Intel to compete with AMD in terms of performance integrated in graphics processor, will add some work to companies producing cooling systems for laptops. The developers report about …
