Sapphire Radeon RX 480 Nitro OC is Available for Preorder

Sapphire is about to launch the first modification of AMD’s graphics adapter – the Radeon RX 480. The new-comer, entitled Radeon RX 480 Nitro OC, is already available for preorder at the price tag of $322. The PCB, as well as the integrated cooling system, employs a modified design. The ‘OC’ postfix implies that the card has been overclocked to provide for a better performance.



Sapphire Radeon RX 480 Nitro OC comes equipped with AMD Polaris 10 GPU (14 nm, FinFet, GCN). It features 2304 stream processors, 32 ROPs & 144 TMUs. The presumptive GPU clock frequency might achieve 1350 MHz. At the same time, memory subsystem hasn’t been modified: 8 GB of GDDR5 are supposed to run at 2.0/8.0 GHz (base/dynamic) frequency.


The 2-slot cooling system employs a few heatpipes, a large aluminum heatsink, a stiffening plate at the reverse side, and a couple of 100-mm fans. The latter are able to operate in passive mode when GPU temperature is low. Moreover, the model boasts the …

Greeting Small-Sized HIS R9 270 iCooler Boost Clock 2GB GDDR5 Graphics Card

The middle-end lineup of HIS’ proprietary graphics cards has been refilled with a new small-sized model: the R9 270 iCooler Boost Clock 2GB GDDR5. It features 190x125x45 mm dimensions and maintains an etalon clock frequency template. Hence, its price won’t differ too much from the recommended one. The new-comer boasts a bright design with a blue PCB and light-blue fan blades. Despite the appurtenance to the middle-end segment, the card is able to demonstrate quite an appropriate performance.



As seen from the codename, HIS R9 270 iCooler Boost Clock 2GB GDDR5 is equipped with 2 GB of GDDR5 video memory. The latter employs 256-bit interface and runs at 1400 MHz (nominal)/5600 MHz (effective) frequency. The heart of the card is AMD Radeon R9 270 GPU (28 nm, Curacao Pro architecture) with 1280 stream processors, 80 TMUs, and 32 ROPs. Its basic clock frequency makes up 900 MHz, while on overclocking this index rises to 925 MHZ.

Intel Makes a Surprise Launch of Ivy Bridge Processors

The release of the 4th generation Intel Haswell processors made a real stir last week. This turmoil left the launch of several Intel Ivy Bridge processors practically unnoticed. How strange as it might seem, but Intel keeps on supplying its 3rd generation products to comply with the needs of the vast majority of customers. Hence, a set of new CPUs consists of: five Intel Pentium models (G2140, G2120T, G2030T, G2030), three Intel Core models (i3-3245, i3-3250, i3-3250T), and a single Intel Celeron G470 model.



Each Intel Pentium processor features two cores and 3 MB of cache-memory. The nominal clock frequencies fluctuate within the measures of 2.6-3.3 GHz, depending on the model. All the models within the line are equipped with Intel HD graphics core. Intel Pentium G2030T and G2030 support two-channel DDR3 modules with up to 1333 MHz frequency, while their companions – Intel Pentium G2140 and G2120T – support DDR3-1600 MHz modules.


Each Intel Core processor comes with …
