ECS Develops Haswell-Compatible Motherboard Z87H3-A2X Extreme

At the cusp of an official release of Intel’s fourth generation processors each hardware designer tries to elaborate new Haswell-compatible components. Motherboard manufacturers are probably the ones to introduce the lion’s share of such products. ECS is not an exception. According to the data provided by a reputable source, ECS is soon going to release its newest prime-class board codenamed Z87H3-A2X Extreme. The first meeting with the new-comer is planned within the boundaries of Computex 2013 exhibition taking place in June.

As seen from the codename, ECS Z87H3-A2X Extreme is based on Intel Z87 Express chipset covered by a black-and-red heatsink. The model employs full-sized printed circuit board, Socket LGA1150, and 12-phase VRM for CPU power supply with gold-plate solid-state capacitors. Power subsystem elements are cooled down by a voluminous CoolTech V heatsink. This heatsink is connected with a chipset one by means of a nickel-plated copper heat pipe.

Synology to Release 5-Bay DiskStation DS1515 NAS

Synology, a renowned manufacturer of network solutions, has launched yet another NAS, tailored to business-oriented customers with thirst for a comprehensive data storage, synchronization and backup processes. The heart of DiskStation DS1515 is Annapurna Labs Alpine AL-314 platform with 1.4 GHz processor and 2 GB of DDR3 RAM. The greenhorn is equipped with a couple of USB 3.0 ports, a pair of eSATA ports, and a single 4-port gigabit Ethernet controller.

Synology DiskStation 1515 features five screwless bays for 3.5-/2.5-inch HDDs which support hot swapping option. The total capacity of all drives might not exceed 40 TB (5x 8 TB). This storage supports the creation of varied RAID configurations (0, 1, 5, 6, 10) as well as JBOD. The possibility to exert an entire control over power consumption is thought to be one of the key advantages of this model. Moreover, the chassis involves anti-vibration pads which reduce vibration and noise level.

Nvidia GeForce GTX 780 Ti Graphics Card Official Release

After a line of rumors and leaks, Nvidia has officially introduced its latest powerful graphics card, codenamed GeForce GTX 780 Ti. Thanks to the implementation of a full-fledged GK110 core and the increase of clock frequencies, the card is going to compete with GTX Titan model, as well as with a top-tier Radeon R9 290X from AMD. In view of such efficiency, its recommended price goes up to $700.

The GeForce GTX 780 Ti is equipped with GK110 GPU that contains 2880 stream processors (GTX Titan features 2688 of them), 7.1 billion transistors, 48 ROPs, and 240 TMUs with the support for FP16/FP32 trilinear filtration. The core operates at 875 MHz (nominal) and 928 MHz (overclocked) frequencies. All major components are allocated on a black PCB, equipped with PCI Express 3.0 x16 bus. The incorporated GDDR5 modules with 384-bit interface (overall capacity – 3 GB) run at 7008 MHz with the bandwidth of 336 Gb/sec.

Power supply is realized via a single 8-pin and a single 6-pin …
