Indeed, the company's product line counts dozens of cards destined at various audiences, with various needs and budgets. Take HIS HD 7850 series alone: it consists of ten models (three with 1GB memory and seven with 2GB memory). The latest HIS 7850 IceQ X Turbo X belongs to '2GB echelon' and is distinguished by the heightened GPU and memory frequency. Upon the whole, this graphics adapter features outstanding cooling and overclocking facilities.

Design and PCB

Graphics adapter HIS 7850 IceQ X Turbo X is a standard representative of the second HD 7850 revision. It is housed on a short printed circuit board and is equipped with only a single power socket, two heatpipes and a large fan. HIS developers advanced the heatpipes outside the board to elongate its contours; nevertheless, this card can't be considered voluminous, since its width hasn't been touched at all. The top part …

Intel Unveils DZ75ML-45K Board with LucidLogix Virtu MVP Support

CES 2013 provided room for Intel to show all its might and recent achievements in PC hardware industry. Hence, the company unveiled a series of new motherboards intended at the overclocking of Intel Core i3, i5, and i7 CPUs of the second and third generation. Model, codenamed Intel DZ75ML-45K, is a bright representative of this series, being a large-scale entry-level solution. It is developed in micro-ATX form-factor and features 226x216 mm dimensions.

Motherboard Intel DZ75ML-45K is based on Intel Z75 chipset and employs Socket LGA1155 CPU slot. Power supply subsystem is designed according to 4+2 scheme, where 4 phases are responsible for CPU management. The board accommodates four DIMM slots for the integration of two-channel DDR3 RAM; its overall capacity might achieve 32GB. Besides, Intel has taken care about wide memory facilities that manifest themselves is various operational frequencies (from 1066 MHz to 2400 (OC) MHz).

Zalman Intros Three New Graphics Cards with VF1500 Cooler

Zalman, a well-known manufacturer of CPU coolers, PC cases and graphics solutions, introduces three new graphics card models, codenamed GeForce GTX 600 D5 OC VF1500, GeForce GTX 660 Ti D5 VF1500 and GeForce GTX 660 Ti D5 OC VF1500. All three models are equipped with a brand two-slot VF1500 cooler. Its framework consists of four heatpipes which transfer heat from GPU surface to an aluminum heatsink. This heatsink is accompanied by a couple of 92 mm fans, the maximal rotational speed of which achieves 1500 RPM. If compared with a reference cooler, VF1500 reduces GPU operational temperature at 25 degrees (from 81 to 56 degrees), producing 10 dB less noise (26 dB vs 36 dB).

The first model is based on Nvidia GK106 processor, designed under 28 nm technological process. It is characterized by heightened clock frequencies: nominal 1006 MHz against reference 980 MHz, and dynamic 1059 MHz against reference 1033 MHz.

The other two models, GeForce GTX 660 Ti D5 VF1500 and GeForce GTX …
