Gigabyte to Launch an Overclocked GTX 1080 Xtreme Gaming Videocard

Elegant design & astounding overclocking – that’s all about new GeForce GTX 1080 Xtreme Gaming videocard from Gigabyte. The model (codename: GV-N1080XTREME-8GD) is based on Nvidia’s GP104-400 GPU that is characterized by a high efficiency and a stunning performance. It can operate in OC or Gaming mode to better comply with users’ needs. In the former instance, the base/dynamic clock frequencies make up 1784/1936 MHz, whereas in the latter instance, this index equals to 1759/1898 MHz (reference showings: 1607/1733 MHz).

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1080 Xtreme Gaming boasts the integration of 8 GB of GDDR5X video memory (256-bit interface) that has been overclocked to 10.211 MHz (Gaming mode) & 10.416 MHz (OC mode) respectively. The card is differentiated by an offbeat design with an X-style cover. The PCB comes equipped with LED backlight, supporting 16.8 million colors as well as a few running modes.

To continue, the greenhorn accommodates 12+2 VRM subsystem and Ultra …

Intel to Take Care about Power-Efficiency of Ivy Bridge Processors

The rising competition between the two giants in the manufacture of processing units, Intel and AMD, makes each of the two invent ever newer technologies and implement them in their products. The attempts to dominate in the market and win as many consumers usually develop into brand new approaches and brand new advanced facilities.

In this light, Intel is going to upgrade its Ivy Bridge processors to make them more power-efficient. But power-efficiency does not imply that processing units will show less performance; quite the contrary, the manufacturer is willing to combine an utmost performance with the maximal power efficiency level.

Currently, the most power-saving processors of Ivy Bridge generation can be found in mobile devices on Windows platform and in Apple MacBook Air devices. Their TDP level is recorded at 17W. As appears from the above mentioned, the TDP level in upgraded Ivy Bridge processors will be lower than 17W, though the developers do not voice the margin …

SilverStone Debuts with SST-ST30SF Power Supply

SilverStone Technology has recently introduced its newest SFX power supply unit. Codenamed SST-ST30SF, it features 125x100x63.5 mm dimensions and weighs 800 g only. The unit is estimated for 300 W power and is capable to demonstrate more than 81% efficiency in 230 V networks. High efficiency level allowed the model to gain 80Plus Bronze certificate.

The most uncommon feature ascribed to SST-ST30SF is that it can operate in passive mode if thermal conditions allow. The unit is equipped with a fan of 80 mm dimensional type; it starts rotating only when the surrounding temperature reaches 55 degrees. This promotes for a considerable power reduction and practically silent work when the fan gets disabled. An average noise level on active operation makes up 18 dB.

SilverStone furnishes the new entry with a single +12V rail, estimated for 22 A current. In its turn, +3.3V rail is estimated for 21 A current, while +5V rail – for 20 A current. It should be noted that this unit …
