Evga Unveils More Information about Z77 Mini ITX Motherboard

Last month Evga announced the release of its new motherboard of mini ITX form-factor based on Intel Z77 chip. Currently, there is no information concerning the exact release date, although the company keeps the suspense by providing more data about the future product. The motherboard will be codenamed Evga Z77 Mini ITX and will be compatible with LGA 1155 socket. The board will own unmatched properties to provide for the extreme overclocking facilities.

Evga Z77 Mini ITX is developed on eight-channel power supply subsystem that employs DrMOS IR3550M components. Additional power is supplied by 8-contact EPS12V socket. The motherboard is equipped with Marvell controller that takes responsibility for the operation of eSATA 6 Gb/sec interface on the rear panel. This interface is represented by a couple of eSATA ports. In addition, the rear panel accommodates video slot HDMI, Thunderbolt port, RJ-45 slot (gigabit Ethernet), optical S/PDIF, five Mini-Jack slots (under control of …

Nvidia Announces Quadro K6000 Professional Graphics Solution

Nvidia is going to release a new graphics card for professional use from Quadro series. Entitled Quadro K6000, it is targeting high-performance workstations, due to an uncommon computing efficiency with 5.2 TFLOPS single precision. This graphics adapter fully utilizes the computing possibilities of GK110 GPU and accommodates 12 GB(!) memory to lead across the segment.

Nvidia Quadro K6000 is based on GK110 graphics core (Kepler 28 nm architecture). As distinct from mainstream customer-oriented versions with neutered core – Titan, GeForce GTX 780/770 – this model employs a full-fledge core. This results in the augmentation of CUDA cores up to 2880 items, ROPs — up to 48 items, and TMUs — up to 256 items. GK110 here runs at 900 MHz.

In reference to GDDR5 video memory, its overall capacity makes up 12 GB, which is twice more than mainstream processors have. Its nominal clock frequency equals to 1502 MHz, while its effective index rises up to 6008 MHz. The connection …

AMD Outs the World’s First Server FirePro S9300 x2 GPU

AMD has proudly announced the release of the world’s first server-grade graphics accelerator. Entitled FirePro S9300 x2, this GPU is called to facilitate in solving complex computing tasks and take graphics to the next level. The card is linked to the power unit by means of two 8-pin connectors, consuming up to 300 W power at most.

The heart of AMD FirePro S9300 x2 is a bundle of two AMD Fiji GPUs (GCN architecture). They feature a pair of 4096 stream processors and run at 850 MHz frequency. Each GPU employs 4 GB of HBM memory that operates at 1000 MHz clock frequency and offers 512 Gb/sec bandwidth.

The integration of two processing aggregates allows the accelerator to achieve some amazing 13.9 TFLOPS of computing power. As a result, the model exceeds in performance its nearest competitors: Nvidia Tesla K80 with 5.6 TFLOPS as well as Nvidia Tesla M60 with 7.4 TFLOPS.

The support for AMD GPUOpen stack is supposed to be the card’s key advantage. This stack enables …
