The First Data about AMD Ryzen R7 1800X, R7 1700X and R7 1700 Cost Have Been Revealed

From day to day we obtain more and more info about AMD Ryzen processors and changes in company naming. Data on several Ryzen CPUs prices are already available online and should be treated with caution, because AMD specialties’ success depends on their cost-productivity correlation.



Thus, a new series flagship, R7 1800X, will cost 600 EUR. Its overfrequency will make 4 GHz. The basic frequency is likely to be 3.6 GHz. This model claims to provide competition for the Intel Core i7-6900K product from the Broadwell-E family, which is sold at 1,000 USD. CPU R7 1700X is expected to cost 470 EUR and deliver the 3.8 GHz enhanced frequency. It is worth more, than Core i7-7700K, which costs 350 USD, thus we can assume, its productivity level will be higher. However, CPU R7 1700 with 3.7 GHz overfrequency will be retailed at the price tag of 390 EUR and feature just 65 W TDP.


One should take into account, that the prices indicated are meant for Europe; in the USA CPUs may be …

Thecus Company introduced a new naming scheme for products

Company Thecus decided to introduce a new naming scheme for its drives, so that users can easily understand its product line. New names will have all future models.

This is followed by a two-digit number indicating the number of disks (compartments for storage) in the system. If this amount is less than 10, the first zero is omitted. Fourth and fifth digit is coded by the hardware platform used. For example, 21 — Cavium Econa, 31 — Marvell Armada, 51 — Intel Atom Cedarview, 52 — Intel EvanSport, 53 — Intel Atom third-generation, 81 — Sandy Bridge, 82 — Ivy Bridge, 83 — Other Platforms future generations.

Asus Boasts One More Graphics Adapter with a Two-Slot Cooler

Asus has replenished its graphics card series based on Kepler architecture with a brand variation of one-chip GeForce GTX 680 adapter. Brand Asus GeForce GTX 680 card has been developed on an original in design circuit board and is notable by the doubled to 4GB GDDR5 memory capacity. Nevertheless, the most outstanding characteristic of a new product is the implementation of a two-slot cooling system, codenamed DirectCU II. Earlier Asus equipped its GeForce GTX 680 adapters with three-slot coolers.



The company decided to concentrate mainly on the introduction of an uncommon cooling system, leaving all frequency showings identical to the recommended by Nvidia index. Thus, graphics core operates at 1006 MHz frequency, while memory module works at 6008 MHz. Memory chips are soldered on both sides of the circuit board. The reverse side of PCB is covered by an aluminum plate that is in direct contact with GDDR5 chips.
