MSI Intros 5 New Videocards Based on GTX 1060 Adapter

MSI has developed 5 different modifications of the latest Nvidia’s adapter entitled GeForce GTX 1060. All the models are based on GP106-300 GPU (Pascal/16 FinFet) with 1152 CUDA cores, 72 TMUs & 48 ROPs. Moreover, they all employ PCI Express 3.0 x16 interface as well as 3 GB of GDDR5 memory (192-bit rail) that operates at 2002/8008 MHz frequency.

The most affordable graphics card – MSI GeForce GTX 1060 3GT OC – runs at 1544/1759 MHz frequency (factory overclocked). The PCB boasts the implementation of top-quality Military Class 4 hardware base & a two-fan cooling system with several heatpipes. The model draws power via a single 6-pin connector.

The ARMOR series is represented by two models: GeForce GTX 1060 Armor 3G V1 and GeForce GTX 1060 Armor 3G OCV1. Both items are designed in white-and-black color gamut. The second card is shipped with a factory overclocked GPU – 1544/1759 MHz frequency. Cooling system consists of nickel-plated copper heatpipes in combination …

Seagate Launches the 5th Generation FireCuda SSHD

Seagate has expanded its lineup of hybrid drives with the 5th-generation FireCuda SSHD. The greenhorns are based on shingled magnetic recording technology (SMR), rather than perpendicular magnetic recording (PMR). The SMR enables the partial superposition of data tracks; it ensures the ultimate record density. The models are backed by a 5-year’s limited warranty.

Seagate FireCuda series is introduced by 5 models, developed in 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch formats. Their capacity varies from 500 GB to 2 TB. The drives employ MLC flash memory (8 GB) as well as SATA 6 Gb/sec external interface. The spindle rotates at 5400 RPM.

The average data read speed makes up 140 MB/sec with 2.5-inch models & 156 MB/sec with 3.5-inch items. The latter offer also up to 190 MB/sec of the average read speed from flash memory; besides, it takes only 8.5-9.5 ms for the chips to search for the needed data on Read/Write operations. To add, the new FireCuda is thought to consume between 1.7-6.7 W power.

Gelid Announces a New Black Edition Supercooler

Gelid, a company known for its high-end cooling systems, announces the release of a new air supercooler, codenamed Black Edition. This model is characterized by a prime cooling effect that is able to manage with even an overclocked red-hot processor. Upon the whole, Gelid Black Edition can boast a larger number of heat pipes, wider area of heat dissipation, and quieter operation.

Gelid Black Edition is known to support all contemporary CPU sockets designed by Intel (LGA 2011, 1366, 1156, 1155, 775) and AMD (FM1, FM2, AM2, AM2+, AM3, AM3+). This makes the cooler highly-compatible with versatile PC systems. The model is developed in the most spread tower framework with the two-section heatsink; this promotes for the installation of more than two fans which are able to ensure the maximal cooling activity. The base houses seven heat pipes (three of them feature 8 mm and four others — 6 mm). This implies that the model will play its best within the systems based on Intel X79 …
