XFX Teases Radeon HD 7990 Triple Dissipation Graphics Card

XFX has introduced its own version of Radeon HD 7990 — a top-tier graphics adapter from AMD. As distinct from the other companies that incorporated only some inconspicuous changes into their products, XFX has approached to the card’s modification with a violent zeal. As a result, today everyone has a chance of examining its Radeon HD 7990 Triple Dissipation card that employs two Tahiti XT GPUs, elaborated on Graphics Core next architecture.



Each Tahiti XT chip comes with 2048 stream processors and 3 GB of GDDR5 memory. This implies that the total memory capacity makes up 6 GB. GPUs run at 950 MHz clock frequency, but have the potential of achieving 1000 MHz frequency on overclocking. As for the memory, it employs 384-bit bus and runs at an efficient 6 GHz frequency.


To continue, all the components of Radeon HD 7990 Triple Dissipation are housed on an original PCB, designed by XFX. Connection with the PSU is realized via a pair of 8-contact power sockets. The rear …

Micron to Carry Out the Production of TLC Memory Next Year

Memory market, similar to other industries, undergoes certain changes and updates from time to time. Therefore, memory manufacturers are currently trying to comply their production with two major tendencies: considerable drop in demand for RAM, employed basically in desktop PCs, and simultaneous growth of demand for solid-state drives, employed in compact tablets and mobile devices. Besides, the latter is developed at lightning speed.



Micron, one of the leading memory manufacturers, feels like no one else all the changes and fluctuations in the market. Its quarterly reports witness about the relentless drop in demand for DRAM (9% drop at average) for the report period. At the same time, increase in SSD segment is estimated at 5% at average. Sales volume of NOR memory type did not outlive serious changes.


According to the preliminary data, Micron is going to carry out the production of memory on TLC microchips, manufactured under 20 nm technological process. The assumed …
