PSU Aerocool Templarius Imperator 750 Review

At turn of the previous year Aerocool launched a new series of PSUs, united within a single series Templarius Imperator. The series involves a line of models ranging 550W-1500W power index. A part of those units are known to correspond to 80Plus Silver standards, while the other part – to 80Plus Bronze standards. Model Templarius Imperator 750 complies with 80Plus Silver requirements, due to the claimed efficiency of 88%. This feature implies that this PSU might appear to be helpful in the assembling of quite powerful PC platforms.

Delivery Set and Exterior Design

Aerocool Templarius Imperator is delivered in a white cardbox which inscriptions distinctly make out about the unit’s gaming predestination. Its internal contents involve the unit itself and a set of modular cables. The model is developed in white color design and is housed in a steel case; it features 170x150x85 mm dimensions. Modular sockets are located on the rear facet. The attached label contains basic …

PowerColor Radeon R9 295X2: High-End Adapter with Two GPUs

PowerColor has recently launched the most powerful in AMD’s Radeon series graphics card, entitled Radeon R9 295X2. The key peculiarity of the model is the availability of two GPUs, which are accompanied by a hybrid cooling system. Such remarkable specifications make the card an ideal solution for advanced gamers and overclocking enthusiasts.

PowerColor Radeon R9 295X2 employs PCI-e 3.0 x16 interface and incorporates a pair of AMD Hawaii XT GPUs (28 nm, GCN 2.0). Each processor features 2816 CUDA cores, 64 ROPs, and 176 TMUs. They operate at the maximal 1018 MHz clock frequency. Each GPU ‘cooperates’ with 4 GB GDDR5 memory (8 GB in total) with 512-bit rails. Its nominal clock frequency makes up 1250 MHz, whereas efficient frequency might reach up 5000 MHz.

This remarkable graphics card is furnished with a hybrid cooler. Both GPUs are taken care by a liquid-cooling solution of enclosed type, power circuits are taken care by air cooling. The latter consists of a fan …

Promising Speed Forecasts for AMD Radeon 8000 Sea Islands

AMD is continuing its work on the new GPU generation codenamed ‘Sea Islands’. The new series is prognosticated to be released in the coming winter. All the products with this GPU will be branded Radeon 8000. AMD manufacturers claim that their new graphic processing units will be 40% more efficient due to the implemented advanced technologies. There is not so much news about the future GPU architecture, although cardinal changes are barely possible.

Sea Islands chips will be equipped with 5.1 billion transistors as compared with the current 4.3 billion items applied in the products. This augmentation will facilitate the increment of efficiency. The chips will be developed according to the already tried-and-proven 28 nm technological requirements. The increase of transistors is not as large due to the adherence to the ascribed norms. It should be underlined that the implementation of the old technologies does not imply the considerable warming up of the chips; the developments …
