HIS Adds an Original Graphics Card to Its Inventory

The inventory of graphics solutions developed by HIS has been replenished with a new original in design card based on Radeon HD 7850 adapter. Entitled HIS Radeon HD 7850 iPower IceQ, the card is stuffed with a three-slot IceQ cooler and substantial memory volume that equals to 4GB. In addition, this model supports iTurbo applet that promotes for the GPU and memory clock frequencies increase.

Graphics card from HIS is based on a two-layer copper printed circuit board. The latter houses soldered DrMOS elements instead of conventional transistors. The integrated GPU is furnished with 1024 current processors. Its nominal clock frequency equals to 860MHz but can be dynamically boosted due to iTurbo technology. In its turn, iPower technology ensures stability and more voltage index for efficient overclocking process.

Memory subsystem is introduced by GDDR5 modules with 265-bit interface. The nominal memory clock frequency approximates 4800MHz. Power supply subsystem consists of …

Asus Launches Overclocking-Oriented TUF Sabertooth 990FX R3.0 Mainboard

Despite the fact that Socket AM3+ platform is on its last legs, Asus still dares developing an advanced motherboard, designed for AMD FX processors. That is how TUF Sabertooth 990FX R3.0 board made appearance. The ATX model is built on the binder of AMD 990FX + SB950 bridges as well as a 8+2-phase Asus Digi+ VRM system. The PCB boasts the implementation of top-tier TUF Components hardware base.

Asus TUF Sabertooth 990FX R3.0 is furnished with a voluminous heatsink on key elements; it ensures stable operation even on overclocking. Functionality of the motherboard is realized thanks to M.2 Socket 3 slot with the bandwidth rate of 20 Gb/sec. There are three PCI-e x 16 ports for the connection of graphics cards and other expansion cards; there are also two PCI-e 2.0 x 1 slots & a single PCI-e 2.0 x16 slot.

The model features Realtek ALC1150 audio controller (+ 5x audio connectors) as well as gigabit Ethernet Intel I211 controller. The connection of peripherals is ensured via …

Hard drives still confidently dominate on the notebook market, according to analysts

SSDs are gradually penetrating into mobile computers, but can not yet can become a serious competitor of hard disk drives. Even recently observed slowdown in demand for notebooks with hard drives will not lead to a decrease of the part pf these models in favour of laptops, where SSD is the main storage, analysts believe.

According to the first quarter of this year, models from the HDD larger than 500GB, offered at $ 450-550, formed the largest segment of the market at a rate of 32% of total deliveries. Second place with 26% take laptops with HDD capacity over 320GB, which cost $ 350-450. They are followed by models with HDD larger than 640GB ($ 550-650 price range), than go HDD larger than 750GB ($ 650-750), they are followed — with 250 GB HDD (price less than $ 350), next — the HDD larger than 1 TB ($ 750-900). And only in last place, relevant to market by about 3%, are laptops with SSD volume 128GB or HDD with very large volume (price — $ 900 or more).
