The debut of a new line of graphics cards AMD FirePro Wx000 on base of graphics processors family Southern Islands (28 nm) is also known as the basis for gaming decisions Radeon HD 7000.

Single-chip FirePro W9000 includes a GPU Taxiti XT 4 teraflops of performance when dealing with numbers and a single-precision teraflops in operations with double precision. The volume of on-board video memory is 6 GB of GDDR5, the recommended price — $ 4000. Scope of the discrete graphics FirePro / Southern Islands is traditional: CAD-applications that work with the media content, and system digital signage.

One position lower is FirePro W8000. It uses the kernel Tahiti Pro or XT, characterized by Tflops/806 3.23 Gflops of performance, memory capacity of 4 GB and a price tag of $ 1,600. Even lower in the hierarchy is the FirePro W7000. The card is equipped with 4 GB of GDDR5 RAM and the chip Pitcairn XT (Radeon HD 7870). Performance, according to AMD, is 2.4 Gflops Tflops/152 when …

Plextor Prepares the Release of M5P SSD

Plextor is currently preparing a new SSD series, codenamed M5P. According to the forecasts, this series will be differentiated by high-performance characteristics and Serial ATA 3.0 interface. M5P will be represented by three models of 128 GB, 256 GB and 512 GB volume capacities. All the model lines are developed with the utilization of 19 nm technological process. In addition, all SSDs will be equipped with NAND flash-memory (MLC Toshiba) and Marvell 88SS9187 controllers.

Three models differ from one another by the flash-memory volume. Thereby, 128 GB models accommodates 256 MB of DDR3 cache-memory, 256 GB model – 512 MB, and the last one, 512 GB model – 768 MB. Those SSDs support SATA 6 Gb/sec.

The manufacturer claim that the maximal consecutive reading and writing speeds will achieve 540 Mb/sec and 340 Mb/sec correspondingly (with 128 GB model); 256 GB and 512 GB models will achieve 540 Mb/sec in reading and 450 Mb/sec in writing mode. At the same time, M5P series …

TP-Link to Launch Wireless Dual-Band TL-WDR4300

TP-Link, a renowned supplier of wired and wireless network solutions, is going to release a new wireless dual-band router model, codenamed TL-WDR4300. The launch of the new product is scheduled for the end of September. This router will be characterized by an optimized efficiency and simultaneous employment of two band frequencies.

The combination of two bands promoted for the increase of speed to 450 Mb/sec at 5 GHz frequency and 300 Mb/sec at 2.4 GHz frequency. As a result, the overall bandwidth approximates 750 Mb/sec. This allows the user to enable up to a dozen of channel-sensitive applications and provide for their quick operation.

TL-WDR4300 is equipped with a couple of USB 2.0 ports which are predetermined to organize a joint access towards files, media data or printers, and enable a joint access of several PCs via local network by means of FTP-server. This way, the user will get permanent access towards the necessary data. This model is able to support QoS on IP …
