AMD FX-8300 is Already in Retail Trade

Despite the fact that AMD initially scheduled the official release of FX-8300 for 29 December, this CPU can already be found in some Japanese retail stores. Such sudden appearance in free sale allows all potential consumers to get assured in all claimed specifications.

This is a kind of a breakthrough, since its Vishera companions, FX-8350 and FX-8320, consume up to 125W power.



The reduction of power consumption is explained by the decrease of CPU clock frequencies and nominal voltage showings. Hence, the nominal clock frequency recorded with this CPU model makes up 3.3GHz, while in Turbo mode the frequency rises to 3.6GHz. Some resources state that FX-8300 is able to overclock up to 4.2GHz, however, this info is not vindicated so far. This chip is developed specifically for Socket AM3+.


Taking into account such parameters, analysts feel difficulty in predicting the future of …

GeIL Launches Super Luce DDR4 RAM

GeIL has replenished the inventory of DDR4 RAM items with its own set of memory modules. Entitled Super Luce, the new-comers are targeting gaming desktop PCs as well as enthusiast platforms. All kits are furnished with an uncommon iLuce Thermal backlight on the basis of white, red and blue lights. Along with a decorative mission, this backlight serves informational means: the higher the temperature of the system is, the brighter and more regular the light illuminates.



To continue, the backlight features five levels of flickering. The first level produces 13 twinkles per minute when the temperature is under 40 degrees; when the temperature rises to 40-50 degrees the number of twinkles increases to 60 per minute; 45-50 degrees enable 80 twinkles per minute, 120 twinkles are measures on 50-55 degrees, and finally, when thermal level achieves 55 and higher degrees the amount of twinkles jumps to 200 per minute.


GeIL Super Luce is compatible with Intel Haswell-E platform, …
