AMD releases new video accelerators and FirePro first APU for workstations

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 …

Scythe Offers a Universal CPU Water-Cooling System

Scythe has replenished the line of its products by a new water-cooling system Apsalus III 120. This enclosed cooler is considered to be self-contained and compatible with all contemporary CPUs from Intel and AMD. It should be mentioned that this time Scythe has joined its technological forces with the other cooler supplier. Thus, Apsalus III 120 is a modified version of one of the CPU water-cooling platforms (Gen4) developed by Asetek Inc.



The framework of Apsalus III 120 consists of a copper water block with an integrated pump, two opaque connecting tubes, a heatsink of 119x150x27 mm dimensions, and a single 120 mm fan (Scythe GlideStream 120). The latter is known to have a fixed speed of 1200 RPM; nevertheless, the noise level never exceeds the margin of 24 dB.


This water-cooling system supports the following CPU sockets: Intel (Socket LGA1155, 1156, 1366, 2011) and AMD (Socket FM2, FM1, AM2/(+), AM3/(+). The most beneficial peculiarity pertained to the new model is …

Meet Small-Sized QC5000M Mainboard from ASRock

ASRock enters the mainboard market with a new micro-ATX solution, entitled QC5000M. The greenhorn takes Kabini platform as the basis, featuring AMD A4-5000 hybrid processor (28 nm) with 4 Jaguar cores and 1.5 GHz clock frequency. The APU is accompanied by two slots for one-channel DDR3-1600 MHz RAM (up to 32 GB) and an integrated AMD Radeon HD 8330 graphics (500 MHz clock frequency, compatibility with DirectX 11.1 standard).



The implemented APU boasts 15 W TDP only, requiring a small-sized heatsink for efficient cooling. The model takes power via 24-pin ATX connector and is based on AMD A68 chipset. It is equipped with a single PCI Express 2.0 x16 slot, a pair of PCI Express 2.0 x1 slots, and the same amount of SATA III 6 Gb/sec ports.


Network and audio facilities are represented by Realtek RTL8111GR Gigabit Ethernet controller and 7.1-channel Realtek ALC887 codec respectively. Additionally, the PCB is furnished with ELNA sound capacitors. The rear side of the motherboard …
