AMD releases new video accelerators and FirePro first APU for workstations

The debut of a new line of graphics cards AMD FirePro Wx000 on base of graphics processors family Southern Islands (28 nm) is also known as the basis for gaming decisions Radeon HD 7000.

Single-chip FirePro W9000 includes a GPU Taxiti XT 4 teraflops of performance when dealing with numbers and a single-precision teraflops in operations with double precision. The volume of on-board video memory is 6 GB of GDDR5, the recommended price — $ 4000. Scope of the discrete graphics FirePro / Southern Islands is traditional: CAD-applications that work with the media content, and system digital signage.

One position lower is FirePro W8000. It uses the kernel Tahiti Pro or XT, characterized by Tflops/806 3.23 Gflops of performance, memory capacity of 4 GB and a price tag of $ 1,600. Even lower in the hierarchy is the FirePro W7000. The card is equipped with 4 GB of GDDR5 RAM and the chip Pitcairn XT (Radeon HD 7870). Performance, according to AMD, is 2.4 Gflops Tflops/152 when …

Asus Launches a Wide Range of Nvidia Maxwell-Based Adapters

Asus is the one to introduce the largest assortment of graphics adapters based on a fresh Nvidia Maxwell GPU. The range of suggested products involves two models from Asus GeForce GTX 750 series and three models from Asus GeForce GTX 750 Ti series. All five new-comers are differentiated by an ameliorated PCB design with the incorporation of Super Alloy Power components.

The GTX 750 series consists of GTX750-PH-1GD5 and GTX750-PHOC-1GD5 cards. Both of them come with an integrated Nvidia GM107-300 GPU, equipped with 512 CUDA cores. The first model operates at 1020 MHz/1085 MHz (nominal/boost) frequency, whereas its companion runs at 1059 MHz/1137 MHz. They employ 1 GB of GDDR5 memory, demonstrating 1252 MHz/5010 MHz (nominal/efficient) frequency. The cards also have an identical video interface panel that embraces one HDMI, one D-Sub, and one DVI-D port.

The GTX 750 adapters accommodate analogous cooling system with a single Dust-Proof Fan. The latter is called to keep the …

MSI Introduces A88XI AC Motherboard for FM2+ Platform

The product line of MSI’s mini-ITX motherboards now welcomes a new-comer: the MSI A88XI AC. It takes AMD A88X chipset for Socket FM2+ platform as the basis; this implies the support for AMD Athlon and AMD A series CPUs (of all generations). The PCB offers two DIMM slots for the integration of DDR3-2133 MHz RAM (up to 32 GB). Upon the whole, this model is able to offer much more than other small-sized boards.

The MSI A88XI AC accommodates 4x SATA III 6 Gb/sec ports for the connection of drives and 1x PCI-e 3.0 x16 socket for the implementation of an add-on card. Network options are secured as by gigabit Ethernet controller, so by Bluetooth and Wi-Fi 802.11 ac modules. External I/O panel houses three audio ports, one S/PDIF out, one RJ-45, two USB 3.0 and four USB 2.0 ports, one PS/2 Combo port, and three video ports (HDMI, DVI-D and D-Sub).

Moreover, the support for 8-channel sound production (due to Realtek ALC887) and HDMI video port entails the playback of 4K Ultra HD …
