MSI Z97 Overclocking Motherboards are Ready for High Scores

MSI has replenished the lines of companies with a few series of motherboards based on a fresh Intel Z97 chipset. MSI Z97 Overclocking series is a peculiar one, ready to marvel by high scores. It is introduced by three hi-end models: MSI Z97 MPower, MSI Z97 XPower AC and MSI Z97 MPower MAX AC. In keeping with the idea, the triple offers high functionality, combined with an unprecedented stability and a striking design.

Being the basis for an overclocking system, these motherboards ensure a long-lasting durability in extreme loading conditions, primarily due to the premium hardware base. Hence, the models are equipped with Military Class 4 components with Guard-Pro core, which provides for the highest protection against high temperatures, humidity, electromagnetic distortions, and electrostatic discharge. Besides, Guard-Pro features MSI ECO Power technology that disables power on idle controllers for a more power-efficient operation.

HIS Reveals an Overclocked Version of AMD Radeon HD 7750 Adapter

Hightech Information System Ltd., being an exclusive AMD's partner, reveals its own version of AMD Radeon HD 7750 graphics adapter. The model, codenamed HIS Radeon HD 7750 IceQ X (Blue) Turbo 1GB GDDR5, is based on Cape Verde GPU, manufactured under 28 nm technological process with the implementation of Graphics Core Next micro-architecture. The basic distinguishing feature ascribed to the adapter is that it features an atypical cooling system and factory overclocking index.

This graphics card model is housed on a blue PCB, designed for PCI-e 3.0 x16 bus. The integrated GPU counts 512 current processors and operates at 900 MHz frequency. The rear part of the adapter accommodates a pair of mini-DisplayPort outputs, one HDMI, and one DVI video port. The model is furnished with GDDR5 memory type with 128-bit interface; its overall volume capacity equals to 1GB. Memory modules operate at 4500 MHz frequency.

Haswell processors for laptops will consume up to 57 W, desktop - up to 100

Intel provides with three graphics levels: GT1, GT2 and GT3. Desktop processors won’t receive graphics performance higher than GT2, but mobile processors will be able to boast of with GT3 class. Support of PCI Express 3.0 for Haswell processors will be quite usual characteristics, but at the memory controller little progress is seen — yet provides dual-channel DDR3-1600.

By energy consumption Haswell desktop versions will be divided into models with values of 35, 45, 65 and 95 watts of TDP level. For mobile processors the values are ​​37, 47 and 57 W. Finally, ultra book processors with built-in system logic will be filled by TDP level not more than 15 watts. It is assumed that this will enable them, among other things, be in standby mode up to 10 days without charge.

The desire of Intel to compete with AMD in terms of performance integrated in graphics processor, will add some work to companies producing cooling systems for laptops. The developers report about …
