This card belongs to Matrix series targeting primarily gamers and overclockers. In addition, Radeon HD 7970 is one of the most highly-productive adapters with a striking overclocking potential. Thus, Asus has managed to implement both performance and power in a single product to provide for the utmost results and utmost convenience.


Graphics card from Asus features similar to other Matrix-series models design. Its frontal panel consists of a large cooler with two voluminous fans. This cooling system is covered by a shroud with red insertions. Its rear panel accommodates a perforated plate that leaves bare only a few zones on a textolite (CrossFire sockets, iROG controller, VGA Hotwire zone); spacing under the cooler is covered by a thick plate-heatsink that prevents textolite deformation. The side panel contains a pair of 8-contact power …

AMD FX-8300 is Already in Retail Trade

Despite the fact that AMD initially scheduled the official release of FX-8300 for 29 December, this CPU can already be found in some Japanese retail stores. Such sudden appearance in free sale allows all potential consumers to get assured in all claimed specifications. Thus, FX-8300 is an eight-core chip of the new generation that is characterized by 95W TDP level. This is a kind of a breakthrough, since its Vishera companions, FX-8350 and FX-8320, consume up to 125W power.

The reduction of power consumption is explained by the decrease of CPU clock frequencies and nominal voltage showings. Hence, the nominal clock frequency recorded with this CPU model makes up 3.3GHz, while in Turbo mode the frequency rises to 3.6GHz. Some resources state that FX-8300 is able to overclock up to 4.2GHz, however, this info is not vindicated so far. This chip is developed specifically for Socket AM3+.

Taking into account such parameters, analysts feel difficulty in predicting the future of …
