Adata keeps on developing its hardware potential. This time the company introduces a lineup of M.2 2280 solid-state drives, targeting gamers & enthusiasts. The XPG SX8000 is based on 3D MLC NAND chips, combined with SMI 2260 controller. The drive employs PCI Express 3.0 x4 external interface and shows a total compatibility with NVMe 1.2 standard.

Adata XPG SX8000 will be available in four capacities: 128 GB, 256 GB, 512 GB & 1 TB. Nonetheless, the company has unveiled performance showings only for the first three models. Thus, the junior model offers 1000/300 MB/sec speed on sequential Read/Write operations (ATTO compression); 1000/300 MB/sec speed on sequential Read/Write operations (CrystalDiskMark uncompressed); 900/280 MB/sec speed on sequential Read/Write operations (AS SSD uncompressed). At the same time, the drive’s random showings make up 45000/75000 IOPS (Read/Write).

To continue, the XPG SX8000 256 GB item features the following efficiency specifications: …

Nvidia GeForce GTX 780 Ti Graphics Card Official Release

After a line of rumors and leaks, Nvidia has officially introduced its latest powerful graphics card, codenamed GeForce GTX 780 Ti. Thanks to the implementation of a full-fledged GK110 core and the increase of clock frequencies, the card is going to compete with GTX Titan model, as well as with a top-tier Radeon R9 290X from AMD. In view of such efficiency, its recommended price goes up to $700.

The GeForce GTX 780 Ti is equipped with GK110 GPU that contains 2880 stream processors (GTX Titan features 2688 of them), 7.1 billion transistors, 48 ROPs, and 240 TMUs with the support for FP16/FP32 trilinear filtration. The core operates at 875 MHz (nominal) and 928 MHz (overclocked) frequencies. All major components are allocated on a black PCB, equipped with PCI Express 3.0 x16 bus. The incorporated GDDR5 modules with 384-bit interface (overall capacity – 3 GB) run at 7008 MHz with the bandwidth of 336 Gb/sec.

Power supply is realized via a single 8-pin and a single 6-pin …

Sapphire Outs a Mid-End R7 260X OC Gaming Graphics Card

Sapphire is glad to offer an affordable but quite efficient graphics card targeting inveterate gamers. The R7 260X OC is developed on AMD Radeon R7 260X GPU with Graphics Core Next architecture (28 nm). It features 896 stream processors and runs at the heightened frequency of 1150 MHz. Along with 2GB of GDDR5 memory (128-bit interface and 6600 MHz frequency) the core is able to guarantee a perfect balance between gaming efficiency and price.

Sapphire R7 260X OC employs PCI Express 3.0 x16 internal interface, while the connection of monitors is realized by means of four external video ports: DisplayPort, HDMI and 2x DVI (DVI-I and DVI-D). Cooling is ensured by a brand two-slot cooler; it consists of an aluminum heatsink, a pair of copper heatpipes, and one fan of axial type.

Like other graphics solutions based on R7 260X adapter, the new-comer from Sapphire supports a multiplicity of various technologies. Some of them are described below:
