Intel will lower prices for old and new SSD-drives

Over time, more and more manufacturers of computer equipment are connected to the production of solid-state drives. Conventional consumer SSD are fairly simple to manufacture and chip NAND flash memory and controllers are always available from proven companies. Of all the manufacturers of SSD for the mass market, Intel maybe has not best reputation, still quite high. Using this, the Corporation of Santa Clara sets high prices of their SSDs, not fearing for the sales.

However, as suggested by experts, the pressure from competitors will still force Intel company

to go for price concessions for customers. Reducing of prices on popular drives series SSD

320, SSD 330 and SSD 520 is expected in August this year. Top products will lose most of

all, but also drives of the entry level, in particular 330-series, will be much more accessible to


Below are stated all prices and possible devaluation. Old price is indicated in parentheses.

Company XFX is preparing Radeon HD 7970 GE with Double Dissipation cooler

American vendor XFX is about two weeks to release a Radeon 7970 Edition Double Dissipation (model code — FX-797G-TDF). It combines the capabilities of GPU Tahiti XT2 with a higher overclocking potential and the TDP, rather than at Tahiti XT, PCB reference design, but without a single phase power supply (6 +1), and the cooling system in the vaporizing chamber, an array of aluminum fins, PA plate (the same heatsink for the VRM and memory), as well as the two fans standard size 90 mm.

New model will get the recommended for the Radeon HD 7970 GE frequency ratio 1000/6000 MHz for core and chips GDDR5. The graphics chip will operate at 1050 MHz in the load. Recall that the “usual” HD 7970 was limited to regular frequencies 925/5500 MHz and did not support dynamic overclocking.

The configuration of video outputs is almost standard: from the five of DVI-I, DVI-D, HDMI and 2x Mini DisplayPort for some reason excluded DVI-D. The additional power is supplied by one 8-pin and one …

Palit to Release a Pair of GTX 1060 Video Cards

Palit is enlarging its lineup of GeForce GTX 1060 adapters with a pair of new models. The GTX 1060 Dual 3GB and the GTX 1060 StormX 3G are developed on Nvidia GP106-300 GPUs (16 FinFet), featuring 1152 CUDA cores, 72 TMUs & 48 ROPs. It runs at 1506/1708 MHz frequency (standard/dynamic). Both models are accompanied by 3 GB of GDDR5 memory (192-bit bus) that operates at 2000/8000 MHz frequency (standard/efficient).

The key differentiation between the models lies in the cooling system. Palit GeForce GTX 1060 StormX 3G is equipped with a single fan, replenished with a main heatsink and an additional one, housed on the power circuit. In its turn, Palit Geforce GTX 1060 Dual 3GB is fitted with a voluminous rectangular heat spreader, three copper heat pipes as well as two fans. Thus, it’s an ideal choice for overclockers.

Both video cards employ a single 6-pin connector to draw power. They feature a high-quality hardware base which counts solid-state capacitors, DrMOS chips, …
