ASRock Fatal1ty Z87 Killer: Motherboard for Fastidious Gamers and Overclockers

Hardware solutions from Fatal1ty series have been enjoying great popularity among gamers and overclockers since the first product came out. ASRock continues gladdening its fastidious devotees by introducing one more representative of Fatal1ty series – motherboard Fatal1ty Z87 Killer. It attracts potential customers by a powerful VRM system, prime-quality hardware base, and the implementation of KillerLane 2200 network chip that eliminates lags in online games.

ASRock Fatal1ty Z87 Killer is designed in ATX form-factor and is based on Intel Z87 chipset, targeted Intel Haswell processors (Core i3/i5/i7, Celeron, Pentium) for Socket LGA1150 platform. Memory subsystem supports up to 32 GB of two-channel DDR3 memory chips that run at the maximal 3050 MHz frequency. Power subsystem is organized according to 8-phase scheme; it consists of special MOSFET-transistors that are characterized by a low TDP level.

To continue, this motherboard accommodates three high-speed PCIe 3.0 x16 …

Meeting New Gaming Memory Kits AMD Radeon RG2133

A couple of days ago AMD introduced a new series of DDR3 memory kits within the boundaries of AMD Unified Gaming Strategy development. Codenamed AMD Radeon RG2133, the new-comers are available in two- and four-channel kits, the overall capacity of which equals to 16 GB and 32 GB correspondingly. The most striking feature is that they can be employed as on AMD, so on Intel platforms, supporting AMD AMP and Intel XMP technologies for improved settings optimization.

The other peculiarity is that these memory kits run at 2133 MHz frequency. On such conditions there is always a chance to dramatically increase the system performance up to 22% (with APU AMD A10 on board). Herewith, voltage index equals to 1.65 V, while latency index looks the following way: 10-11-11-30. Memory chips are cooled down by the forces of a high-quality aluminum heatspreader. Its design is called to ensure a stable operation in response to the increased frequencies.

There is one more advantageous …

Meeting New GTX 970 DirectCU Mini OC Video Card from Asus

Tailored for mini-ITX motherboards, Asus has designed a new graphics card based on GeForce GTX 970 adapter. The GeForce GTX 970 DirectCU Mini OC features 170x122x40 mm dimensions only, targeting small-sized chassis for mini-ITX platforms. The heart of the card is Nvidia’s GM204-200-A1 GPU with 13 SMM blocks, 1664 CUDA cores, 104 TMUs, and 64 ROPs. It runs at the nominal 1088 MHz frequency but might be overclocked to 1228 MHz index.

Asus GeForce GTX 970 DirectCU Mini OC employs a shortcut PCB that accommodates a two-slot cooler with a vapor chamber, a backplate, and a high-efficiency CoolTech Fan. The latter is distinguished by a unique design that dramatically enhances airflow. The incorporated hardware base features Super Alloy Power design. It implies the inclusion of prime-quality chokes, capacitors, and power transistors. Their combination provides for some incredible efficiency and a prolonged lifespan.

The integrated GPU is accompanied with 4GB of GDDR5 memory; it …
