Gigabyte Shows Off a Bespoke GTX 970 Graphics Card

Gigabyte has intrigued its fans by the design of an unusual videocard – the GeForce GTX 970 (GV-N970TTOC-4GD). It is based on Nvidia GM-204-200-A1 GPU (Maxwell) but with overclocked frequencies. The core operates at 1101 MHz/1241 MHz instead of etalon 1050 MHz/1178 MHz. The GPU is accompanied with 4 GB of GDDR5 memory (256-bit bus) that runs at 7010 MHz efficient clock frequency.

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 970 is distinguished by the implementation of Twin Turbo Fan cooling system. It consists of three copper heatpipes with direct touch technology, an aluminum heatsink, and a radial-flow fan; the latter grasps air from both sides of the adapter due to the shortened PCB design.

As a result, the airflow increases by 24%, whereas the cooling effect enhances by 29%. Thanks to this, the card is thought to be an optimal solution for Nvidia SLI configurations.

It should be noted that this graphics card boasts a high-quality hardware base – Ultra Durable VGA. A set of external …

Point of View strengthens GeForce GTX 680 UltraCharged 4GB of memory

Dutch manufacturer of discrete graphics Point of View considered as a good idea to equip one of the top-end versions GeForce GTX 680 with the prefix UltraCharged with four gigabytes of memory. This graphic card can be a good alternative to existing POV / TGT GTX 680 UltraCharged with 2GB buffer.

The new model, as well as it «precursor», is using the reference design PCB Nvidia with the configuration of additional power connectors PCI-E Power (6 +8)-pin. Typically, the PCB for GeForce GTX 680 is equipped with only four power phases for the GPU, but the version of the UltraCharged Point of View / TGT the fifth one added.

The frequencies remained the same: 1111 MHz for the graphics core (1176 MHz in turbo mode) and 6008 MHz for the 4 GB of memory GDDR5. Under three-slot cooling system, there is GK104 chip in the composition of 1536 shaders and 256-bit memory bus. Point of View marketers emphasize that the graphics processor for the graphics cards GTX 680 UltraCharged …

Intel Intros 525 SSD Series for High-Performance Systems

Intel replenishes its SSD product line with 525 series that is distinguished by utmost facilities and power-saving properties. Intel 525 embraces six models of 30GB, 60GB, 90GB, 120GB, 180GB, and 240GB capacity that are predestined to be employed in high-performance systems. Due to compact dimensions (3.7x50.8x29.85 mm), these solid-state drives are appropriate for handheld small-sized devices, such as ultrabooks, tablets, all-in-one solutions, and embedded systems. According to Intel's developers, the models are eight times smaller in size than traditional HDDs of 2.5-inch form-factor.

Intel 525 are known to employ mSATA interface with PCI Express mini-slot. All models are based on a multi-level NAND flash-memory developed under 25 nm technology. The drives support 128-bit encryption technology that takes Advanced Encryption Standard as the background; this standard functions as an additional data security means in case of loss or theft.

To continue, new SSD series from …
