The Switchover to Nvidia GeForce GTX 760

Nvidia has officially introduced one more graphics adapter from 700 series: GeForce GTX 760. As it was expected earlier, the card is based on GK104 graphics chip (on Kepler architecture) with 1152 CUDA cores, 32 ROPs and 96 TMUs. Its nominal clock frequency makes up 980 MHz, still this index might be overclocked at average to 1033 MHz.



Reference adapter is furnished with 2 GB of GDDR5 memory that employs 256-bit interface. Nonetheless, Nvidia does not exclude the possibility of introducing the models with 4 GB memory capacity. The nominal memory clock frequency equals to 1502 MHz, while its overclocked frequency reaches up 6008 MHz. This adapter is thought to support GPU Boost 2.0 technology that adjusts the overclocking frequency in reliance on GPU thermal condition. Thus, the more powerful cooling system is, the higher frequencies the users might expect.


To continue, power supply subsystem is represented by a couple of 6-contact power sockets. The maximal claimed TDP …

Sapphire Pulse Radeon RX 550 Graphics Cards Are 158 mm Long

Radeon RX 550 graphics cards were to hit store shelves yesterday. The suggested price of the product is 80 USD, however, there is no reference sample. With this background, AMD partners may set prices of their own free choice.



The Sapphire Company introduced two RX 550 models under the Pulse Radeon RX 550 2GD5 and Pulse Radeon RX 550 4GD5 code names. It’s not hard to figure out, that the only difference between them lies in the memory volume.


The GPU boost clock of these video cards equals to 1,206 MHz, and the memory operates at the 7,000 MHz frequency. Owing to the low TDP level (50 W, as reported by AMD), the adapter doesn’t require a superpowerful cooling system. That’s why Sapphire models are rather compact – 158 mm long only!


Chilling is provided by a cooler with a small heatsink and one fan. The HDMI, DVI and DisplayPort interfaces are located on the rear panel.

Ultrabook Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon will debut on August 21
