Asus Showcases GTX 960 DC2 Videocard

Asus has complemented its Black Edition series of videocards with another model – the GeForce GTX 960 DC2 (codename: GTX960-DC2-4GD5-Black). Its major peculiarity is the employment of 4 GB GDDR5 memory that is sure to improve gaming efficiency in multi-display high-resolution environment. The model supports all modern standards (DirectX 12, OpenGL 4.4) as well as proper Nvidia’s technologies: SLI, G-Sync, GameWorks, GPU Boost 2.0, ShadowPlay, GameStream.

Asus GeForce GTX 960 DC2 is based on Nvidia GM206-300 GPU (1024 CUDA, 64 TMUs, 32 ROPs). It operates at 1126 MHz frequency with overclocking possibility of 1178 MHz. The integrated 128-bit memory operates at 7010 MHz efficient frequency.

This graphics card entails Super Alloy Power components and an optimized DirectCU II cooling system. The latter ensures that heatpipes touched CPU surface for an unprecedented heat dissipation. The cooler comes with a pair of fans, one of which features CoolTech hybrid design. The …

System on Module Sauris AM3517/05 Sales Start

The official website of Sauris company is dazzled by the information about the sales start of the systems on modules AM3517/05. The new systems are based on high-performance microprocessors TI Sitara AM3517 or AM3505 developed in the SODIMM-204 form-factor. System designers have extended the data bus to 16 bit and connected it with the flash-memory chip. The extension of data bus allowed for the acceleration of the OS loading. In addition, the systems are equipped with a new keyboard controller that enables the connection of up to 80 keys; the integration of such solution permitted the designers to refuse from the additional elements of keyboard protection from electrostatic restrictions.

The module configuration includes memory of EEPROM type in 64 KB volume capacity, SDRAM DDR2-166 memory in 256 MB capacity, and flash-memory of NAND type in 256 MB capacity. The interface list boasts a number of facilities including Ethernet 10/100 Mb/sec, CAN 2.0b, USBx2, LVDS, McSPI, McBSP, …

Intel to Take Care about Power-Efficiency of Ivy Bridge Processors

The rising competition between the two giants in the manufacture of processing units, Intel and AMD, makes each of the two invent ever newer technologies and implement them in their products. The attempts to dominate in the market and win as many consumers usually develop into brand new approaches and brand new advanced facilities.

In this light, Intel is going to upgrade its Ivy Bridge processors to make them more power-efficient. But power-efficiency does not imply that processing units will show less performance; quite the contrary, the manufacturer is willing to combine an utmost performance with the maximal power efficiency level.

Currently, the most power-saving processors of Ivy Bridge generation can be found in mobile devices on Windows platform and in Apple MacBook Air devices. Their TDP level is recorded at 17W. As appears from the above mentioned, the TDP level in upgraded Ivy Bridge processors will be lower than 17W, though the developers do not voice the margin …
