Sapphire Showcases Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition Toxic Solution

Sapphire Technology Ltd. is going to release a new graphics card on Tahiti LE chip. Codenamed Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition Toxic, the card is one of the first models to use the newest GPU, developed under 28 nm technological process. The suffix 'GHz Edition' in the model's name witnesses that the nominal GPU clock frequency exceeds the index of 1 GHz.

The core of Sapphire Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition Toxic is based on Graphics Core Next architecture and contains 1536 current processors. The card's inventory involves 2GB of GDDR5 memory with 256-bit bus interface. The memory modules are known to operate at 6000 MHz frequency. GPU operational frequencies are still not clarified, but it's possible to assume that on activation of AMD PowerTune option the card will demonstrate some outstanding performance. In fact, analysts dare saying that this model is the most efficient one among all other solutions based on Tahiti LE chip.

ViewSonic TD2420: Monitor with Optical Touch Technology

ViewSonic, one of the leaders in the development of image display devices, has recently introduced a new 23.6-inch sensor monitor, codenamed TD2420. The model features 555.9x421.9x174.8 mm dimensions and supports two-point Optical Touch technology that recognizes up to two simultaneous touches, due to the integrated optical sensor. In addition, this display boasts anti-glare coverage and scratch-resistant surface (7H). Upon the whole, the product is designed to be used in medical or educational areas, as well as in home-based multimedia systems.

TD2420 accommodates TN panel and is equipped with LED backlight. It supports Full HD resolution (1920x1080) and is characterized by 5 ms response time (in Gray-to-Gray environment). The incorporation of an improved panel type resulted in the following image specifications: viewing angles make up 170/160 degrees (H/V), the maximal brightness achieves the index of 210 cd/m2, static contrast equals to 1000:1, and dynamic contrast equals to …

Preview of Intel Itanium 9500 Specifications

The Internet community is actively discussing new Intel's development, processors Poulson, that belongs to the tenth generation of Intel Itanium. All previous data about the upcoming product were vague and void of official proofs. Currently, the data are more ample and allow the community to study the future processor in more details. Thus, Intel Itanium 9500, codenamed Poulson, will be presented by four models the release of which is planned for early autumn.

The crystal of Poulson processor will consist of 3.1 billion transistors that are called to form eight computing cores. Each core counts up 89 million transistors and the pipeline width is doubled to twelve instructions. This way CPU developers implement more efficient approach towards transistor budget. Just for comparison purposes, Poulson's predecessor, Tukwila, counted 109 billion transistors per core.

To continue, Poulson CPUs will accommodate a couple of cache memory arrays, five channels of QPI bus, system …
