PowerColor Outs an Overclocked Radeon R9 270 OC Graphics Card

Along with other AMD partners, PowerColor has elaborated its own version of Radeon R9 270 adapter. The PowerColor Radeon R9 270 OC is differentiated from rival products by an improved cooling system and factory overclocked frequencies. Its release is scheduled for late November and the retail price won’t hit over $180.



To begin with, this graphics card is naturally based on AMD Curacao Pro GPU, developed under 28 nm technological process. It consists of 1280 current processors, 32 ROPs and 64 TMUs. The core runs at 930 MHz frequency and is able to gain 955 MHz frequency on overclocking. The incorporation of GDDR5 memory (2 GB) with 256-bit bus interface ensures some striking bandwidth of 180 Gb/sec; this provides for the support of gaming applications with high resolution. Memory chip operates at 1400 MHz nominal frequency but might gain the index of 5600 MHz of effective frequency on overclocking.


Cooling system, implemented within Radeon R9 270 OC, cannot be called …

The Tempered Glass Edition of the Thermaltake Core X71 Chassis

The Thermaltake Company has announced a new Core X71 version of chassis. This solution is called Tempered Glass Edition and is produced in black colour.



One of the novelty’s panels possesses a window out of 4 mm tempered glass instead of the formerly used acrylic panel.


Due to its dual-chamber structure the chassis has much of the inner space, which allows to assemble a PC of almost any complexity with the liquid cooling system utilization.

Motherboards of Mini ITX, Micro ATX and ATX typical sizes can be installed. The maximum number of expansion cards is eight. One can use discrete graphics accelerators of up to 420 mm length.


In the front part of this product, there is enough room to mount a 480 mm heatsink, and it’s possible to install a 360 mm heat dissipator at the top. The preassembled power supply unit length equals to 220 mm.


The dimensions of this full tower chassis by Thermaltake are the following: 677 × 250 × 511 mm.

Asus A88X-Pro Motherboard Review: Ahead of Its Time

The elaboration of completely new APUs, codenamed Kaveri, compelled AMD work up one more suitable CPU socket – FM2+. Once after its launch, the leading manufacturers of motherboards have reacted on-the-fly, releasing proprietary models for a new platform. Asus, as usual, was among the first to introduce fresh solutions. Motherboard A88X-Pro is remarkable by the support of upcoming APUs, though it will be still possible to incorporate hybrid processors of the current generation for Socket FM2. For sure, this is not a mere advantage of the board. Let’s have a look at some other specs.



Key Peculiarities


Asus A88X-Pro is developed on AMD A88X chipset and houses an onboard Radeon HD 7000/8000 series graphics. The PCB allots 4 DIMM slots for DDR3 SDRAM modules. An overall capacity of modules set might achieve 64 GB, whereas an ultimate supported clock frequency makes up 2400 MHz. Expansion section is not as bright as a demanding customer would desire; nonetheless, it …
