MSI Showcases R9 280X Gaming 3G LE Graphics Card with Under-Frequency

MSI Gaming lineup of graphics cards is currently rich in numerous models targeting gamers with any taste and budget. Nonetheless, the company never stops pleasing its fans, so the appearance of a new R9 280X Gaming 3G LE (Light Edition) card is quite viable. The new-comer is much alike its predecessor — R9 280X Gaming 3G, released last autumn, — but features reduced frequencies. The other specifications are almost identical.



MSI R9 280X Gaming 3G LE is based on AMD Radeon R9 280X GPU. Its modified frequency chart looks the following way: nominal clock frequency in Silent/Gaming/OC mode makes up 860 MHz, whereas dynamic clock frequency differs, depending on the mode. Hence, in Silent mode it equals to 1000 MHz, in Gaming mode – to 1010 MHz, and in OC mode – to 1020 MHz. Just to compare, the predecessor boasts some 1000 MHz nominal and 1050 MHz dynamic index.


The layout of the graphics card involves 3 GB of GDDR5 memory (384-bit bus) that runs at 6 GHz, Military …

Gainward GameSoul GeForce GTX 1080/1070 Graphics Cards Got the Factory Overclocking

GeForce GTX 1080 and GeForce GTX 1070 GameSoul series graphics accelerators by Gainward are ready for release. These products are meant for powerful game-playing machines and VR systems.



Graphics cards are based on the 16 nm NVIDIA GP104 chip with Pascal architecture. The GeForce GTX 1080 model has 2,560 streaming processors, 160 TMU and 64 ROP. The card features 8 GB of GDDR5X memory with a 256-bit bus.


In its turn, GeForce GTX 1070 comprises 1,920 streaming processors, 120 TMU and 64 ROP. The volume of the GDDR5 memory with a 256- bit bus equals to 8 GB.


Both novelties possess the factory overclocking. The GeForce GTX 1080 chip core base clock is raised from 1,607 MHz to 1,733 MHz, the augmented frequency — from 1,733 MHz to 1,873 MHz. The GeForce GTX 1070 version frequencies boosted from 1,506 MHz to 1,620 MHz and from 1,683 MHz to 1,822 MHz.
