Gigabyte Readies Entry-Level Graphics Card GV-N640D5-2GI

Gigabyte is going to introduce one more entry-level graphics solution that corresponds to the updated Nvidia GeForce GT 640 series. Entitled Gigabyte GeForce GT 640 (GV-N640D5-2GI), the card employs GK107 GPU, running at 1046 MHz frequency instead of the preceding 900 MHz. The core, developed under 28 technological process, utilizes 384 CUDA cores.

It’s necessary to underline that the new-comer differs by the availability of 2 GB memory, whereas all etalon models take 1 GB only. Memory is represented by 64-bit GDDR5 chips that run at 5010 MHz effective frequency, if compared with 1800 MHz frequency that DDR3 modules demonstrate.

GV-N640D5-2GI comes with an improved design of PCB where a brand Ultra Durable 2 concept has been incorporated. This concept implies the employment of a high-quality hardware base, involving durable solid-state capacitors, transistors with low channel resistance RDS (on), and ferrite throttles with reduced power loss. Traditionally, the model …

Graphics Card Inno3D iChill GeForce GTX 780 HerculeZ 3000 Review

Recently launched Nvidia GeForce GTX 780 graphics adapter has marked the era of high-performance combined with affordable price. Its efficiency level nearly reaches the one performed by GTX Titan adapter, but its price is far more reasonable for the majority of potential users. The only question is whether GTX 780 is able to demonstrate stability, running at heightened frequencies, on conditions of standard cooling? Probably, not. However, Inno3D decided to tackle the problem by developing its own version of adapter with an enhanced cooling system. As a result, Inno3D iChill GeForce GTX 780 HerculeZ 3000 graphics card saw the daylight.

General Information

Inno3D iChill GeForce GTX 780 HerculeZ 3000 is a top version in GeForce GTX 780 lineup of this manufacturer. Being a prime-class product, the card is ready to offer a stunning combination of heightened running frequencies and a powerful cooling effect. The model is delivered in a casual cardbox that contains user’s …

Plextor Prepares the Release of M5P SSD

Plextor is currently preparing a new SSD series, codenamed M5P. According to the forecasts, this series will be differentiated by high-performance characteristics and Serial ATA 3.0 interface. M5P will be represented by three models of 128 GB, 256 GB and 512 GB volume capacities. All the model lines are developed with the utilization of 19 nm technological process. In addition, all SSDs will be equipped with NAND flash-memory (MLC Toshiba) and Marvell 88SS9187 controllers.

Three models differ from one another by the flash-memory volume. Thereby, 128 GB models accommodates 256 MB of DDR3 cache-memory, 256 GB model – 512 MB, and the last one, 512 GB model – 768 MB. Those SSDs support SATA 6 Gb/sec.

The manufacturer claim that the maximal consecutive reading and writing speeds will achieve 540 Mb/sec and 340 Mb/sec correspondingly (with 128 GB model); 256 GB and 512 GB models will achieve 540 Mb/sec in reading and 450 Mb/sec in writing mode. At the same time, M5P series …
