ASRock Outs N3150DC-ITX Mainboard

ASRock has gladdened all devotees of small-sized, power-efficient & sustainable PC/multimedia systems by the introduction of a mini-ITX motherboard, entitled N3150DC-ITX. The model comes equipped with a 4-core Intel Atom N3150 CPU, running at 1.6 GHz basic frequency with the possibility to overclock up to 2.08 GHz frequency. Its key privilege is a sparing TDP level – 6 W only.

ASRock N3150DC-ITX boasts a totally passive cooling: the PCB houses a noiseless heatspreader without a fan. Memory subsystem is represented by two SO-DIMM slots which support the installation of DDR3/DDR3L-1600 MHz modules. The PCB teases only top-tier hardware components, including solid-state capacitors, ELNA audio caps, etc.

Storage might be organized due to a pair of SATA III 6 Gb/sec ports and the same number of SATA II 3 Gb/sec ports. A single PCI-e 2.0 x1 slot is intended for an expansion card, while mini PCI-e Express slot – for a wireless network interface module.

MSI Unveils GTX 1050 & GTX 1050 Ti Lineups of Video Cards

MSI has taken its fans by surprise by introducing two lineups of video cards simultaneously. The lines (which embrace 10 models in total) are based on Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 1050 & GeForce GTX 1050 Ti adapters. The new-comers feature either one or two fans and differ by the operational performance as well as functional. It stands to reason that the company has enlarged its Gaming series with 4 new products.

One-fan video cards are distinguished by the implementation of Military Class 4 hardware base, whereas the two-fan versions boast the incorporation of MSI Twin Frozr VI cooling system (TORX 2.0 fans), three operational profiles and overclocking features.

The MSI GeForce GTX 1050 series is introduced by the following models (Nvidia GP107-300 GPU, Pascal, 640 CUDA, 2GB GDDR5, 128-bit bus, DVI-D, HDMI 2.0b, DisplayPort 1.4):

— MSI GeForce GTX 1050 2G: base GPU frequency – 1354 MHz, dynamic GPU frequency – 1455 MHz, efficient memory frequency – 7.0 GHz;

Features of Models AMD Athlon II X4 (FM2)

Like Intel, AMD Company is not protected to the release of a large number of faulty processors, which are eliminated at the stage of laboratory tests. Some have a non-working cache (or part thereof), other — x86-cores, and others — a graphics block, and a fourth — a weak memory controller. According to this, there are releases of less productive CPU, but working with a moderate price tag. About unlocking cores / cache in AMD processors users probably know firsthand.

As the saturation of the defective inventory APU Trinity platform FM2, AMD will decide on the mass production of new models of AMD Athlon II X4. They will be easily distinguished from its predecessors on the number of the form 7xx.

Integrated Graphics Radeon VLIW4, of course, will be disabled. Frequency will be slightly reduced for marketing purposes. Overclocker devotees will primarily be interested in quad-core Athlon II X4 750K of free factor. The operating frequency of the model — 3.4 GHz, cache …
