Promising Speed Forecasts for AMD Radeon 8000 Sea Islands

AMD is continuing its work on the new GPU generation codenamed ‘Sea Islands’. The new series is prognosticated to be released in the coming winter. All the products with this GPU will be branded Radeon 8000. AMD manufacturers claim that their new graphic processing units will be 40% more efficient due to the implemented advanced technologies. There is not so much news about the future GPU architecture, although cardinal changes are barely possible.



Sea Islands chips will be equipped with 5.1 billion transistors as compared with the current 4.3 billion items applied in the products. This augmentation will facilitate the increment of efficiency. The chips will be developed according to the already tried-and-proven 28 nm technological requirements. The increase of transistors is not as large due to the adherence to the ascribed norms. It should be underlined that the implementation of the old technologies does not imply the considerable warming up of the chips; the developments …

Motherboard Gigabyte GA-F2A85X-UP4 Review

The second generation of AMD A-Series hybrid processors, announced earlier in October, are already integrated in a number of graphics solutions. The newly appeared products are compatible with Socket FM2 only and cannot be applied for Socket FM1 infrastructure. This implies that a number of motherboards lose their upgrade facilities and can't be updated with a new advanced solution. Still, the market is currently ready to present a few boards destined to operate with the updated AMD A-Series. Gigabyte is one of the pioneers in this respect, introducing its motherboard GA-F2A85X-UP4, developed specifically for Socket FM2.



Integration


Gigabyte GA-F2A85X-UP4 is designed in ATX form-factor with 305x244 mm PCB dimensions. AMD A85X chipset is a heart of the motherboard; it secures the compatibility with A-Series (second gen.) APU and Athlon CPUs in the implementation of Socket FM2. The overall TDP level claimed for the model is not more than 100W. The PCB allots four DIMM slots …

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 …
