The Release of AMD FX 8320 and FX 8300 Is Round the Corner

AMD is working intensely at the development of 8-core processors, the release of which is prognosticated for the 4th quarter of 2012. According to the preliminary data, AMD will release two models at once: FX 8320 and FX 8300. Such information could not but rejoice all customers using AMD FX processors on Bulldozer architecture, since the new CPUs are promised to be more efficient. The new processors will go with Vishera codename and will be built on the improved Piledriver architecture.



Similar to the flagship model AMD FX-8350, the two models will be designed on the basis of 32 nm micro architecture. They will support DDR3 memory with the frequency of 1866 MHz and will have 8Mb of L3 cache-memory. The two models will also support Socket AM3+ slot. Therefore, the major advantage of the new processor is that they will offer almost 20% more efficiency as compared to the current chips of FX series.


Nevertheless, the two CPUs, FX 8320 and FX 8300, will have certain …

Welcome in a New Professional FirePro W8100 Graphics Card from AMD

AMD has filled up its professional line of graphics cards with a new model: the AMD FirePro W8100. According to the manufacturer, the greenhorn is an optimal choice for computer-aided design, video editing, compositing, visualization, color grading, and computing tasks. The release is arranged for July, adding the variety of different versions from AMD partners, like Sapphire and others.



AMD FirePro W8100 is based on AMD GCN 2.0 graphics core with 2560 stream processors and 40 cluster units. Memory subsystem comes up with 8 GB of GDDR5 chips, featuring 512-bit interface. Its data transfer bandwidth equals to 320 Gb/sec. Upon the whole, the peak efficiency of single-precision computations achieves 4.2 TFLOPS, whereas the peak efficiency of dual-precision computations makes up 2.1 TFLOPS.


One of the major distinctive features attributed to the graphics card is the integration of four DisplayPort 1.2 ports. They allow for the connection of up to 4 monitors simultaneously; …

Asus to Start Shipping Radeon R9 290 DirectCU II OC Graphics Card

Next week Asus is going to start shipping its newest graphics card from Radeon R9 series. Codenamed Radeon R9 290 DirectCU II OC, it is based on an original PCB with black-and-red design and the incorporation of an exclusive DirectCU II cooling system. Plus, the availability of ‘OC’ in the codename implies the availability of factory overclocking.



Asus Radeon R9 290 DirectCU II OC takes GCN Hawaii core with 2816 stream processors as the basis. It operates at an overclocked 1000 MHz frequency. The model is equipped with 4 GB of GDDR5 memory (512-bit bus) that runs at an effective 5400 MHz frequency. Just for a comparison, etalon adapter from AMD runs at 947 MHz/ 5000 MHz for GPU/memory correspondingly.


DirectCU II cooler consists of a heatsink, four copper nickel-plated heatpipes (two of them feature 10 mm dimensions), and two high-performance fans: one ordinary and one CoolTech. The card receives power via 6+8-pin connectors and might require not less than 600 W PSU.
