The Asus VivoPC X Mini PC, Compatible with VR headsets, Costs $799

In January Asus announced the VivoPC X mini PC, and last week the company notified its customers of this product retail launch. Thus, the system details have become known to general public.



Asus VivoPC X features a 4-core Intel Core i5 7300HQ processor, operated by Windows 10 Home at the 3.2 GHz frequency, 8 or 16 GB DDR4-2400 memory, the SATA M.2 SSD of 512 GB capacity and the 2 TB SATA HDD of the 2.5” form factor. The configuration includes the 3D Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 card with 3 GB of the GDDR5 memory, which supports the 4К resolution and allows connecting up to three Full HD monitors. The key specification is the opportunity to use this mini PC with VR headsets and get as much entertainment as possible.


Interface options enclose four USB 3.0, two USB 2.0, two HDMI, one DisplayPort (with NVIDIA G-Sync support) and one Gigabit Ethernet ports. Wireless connectivity is ensured by Wi-Fi 802.11ac and Bluetooth 4.1 adapters.

GeForce GTX 1080 Ti SC2 Hybrid Gaming – a Novelty by EVGA

The EVGA Co. introduced GeForce GTX 1080 Ti SC2 Hybrid Gaming, which is its latest graphics card.



The remarkable point about this product is the presence of the hybrid cooling system, incorporating the nonmaintained system with a 120 mm fan for GPU and memory chips chilling and a casing with a fan for cooling power subsystem elements heatsinks.


The iCX technology applied involves the use of nine thermal sensors, exactly indicating various adapter parts overheating. The hybrid cooling system lets decrease the GPU temperature by 35 degrees, and the memory temperature — by 30 degrees comparing with the reference sample.


The core’s clock rates are 1,556/1,670 MHz, and the memory operates at the 11 GHz frequency. The power supply subsystem features 9 phases. Components are protected by EVGA's warranty.

Which DDR3 SDRAM is better for Ivy Bridge

The overclocker memory is now in the category of products for perfectionists, still the common users are pleased with usual modules DDR3-1600 or DDR3-1333 SDRAM. The issue appears related to the release of processors Ivy Bridge series, which in some aspects are similar to its predecessors, still have some distinctive features.



Ivy Bridge processors are restricted on the maximum frequency supported by the DDR3 SDRAM. This indicates the theoretical chance of these processors work with high-speed memory DDR3-3200 SDRAM. Developers of overclocker memory package perceived the change in rules with certain enthusiasm: there are DDR3-2400 modules available in stores. The gap in frequencies of «elite» and «running» versions of the memory has grown twice in size. It won’t have a noteworthy blow on the work of commonly used tasks in systems.


The memory controller in the Ivy Bridge can work both in symmetric mode, with delay, frequency and volume modules in memory channels, and …
