Overview of the MSI B250M Mortar Motherboard

January of 2017 was marked by the emergence of new processors Intel Kaby Lake-S, while the motherboard manufacturers have released products based on fresh 200- series chipsets. The PCH execution identity allows vendors to produce different models based on the earlier designed PCB. MSI B250M Mortar is one of the kind, as the manufacturer has a similar model – MSI Z270M Mortar.


Technical Characteristics



In fact, B250 is the youngest of the latest generation products. The most significant of its innovations is supporting the work of drives with PCI-E interface, mainly implemented in the popular now format M.2. The model is equipped with an expansion slot of this type. Additional adapters are unavailable, so all the possibilities come through Intel B250. The network interface uses the Intel controller, and the sound is formed by Realtek ALC892.

Chieftec Introduces 4 PSUs of Smart Series

Chieftec has recently introduced four new power supply units, replenishing Smart series. The series is supplemented by GPS-400A8, GPS-500A8, GPS-600A8 and GPS-700A8 models. It should be stated that all the models are targeted only at European customers, since their specifications allow the connection only with 220V-230V networks. Those PSUs are also directed at average customers rather than gamers due to the company's plans to expand its horizons.



The major distinction between the upcoming models is their power that fluctuates in the measures of 400W and 700W. All PSUs are developed in PS2 form-factor and correspond to the ATX 2.3 international standard. Their casings have got black coloring and are characterized by non-modular design. The length of cables reaches 80 cm that is enough for the connection with various devices. Moreover, efficiency level of Smart series exceeds 80%. At the same time, all the models conform to the major environmental guidelines.

Galaxy Microsystems Releases Two New Graphics Cards, Based on NVIDIA Pascal – KFA2 GeForce GTX 1080 EXOC Sniper White and GTX 1070 EXOC Sniper White

The two novelties by Galaxy Microsystems – GeForce GTX 1080 EXOC Sniper White and GTX 1070 EXOC Sniper White – are highlighted not only due to their white colouring, but also due to their non-reference cooler and PC-board design, to the factory overclocking and to the LED-backlighting of fans and the aluminium back plate.



These specialties are equipped with a two-slot cooler possessing several copper nickel-plated heat pipes. There are two memory chip life wires and an 8-pin and a 6-pin PCI-E Power connectors.

The main cooling system contains an aluminium heat dissipator for VRM transistors and a pair of 100 mm fans.


Based on the GP104-400 chip, the top-of-the-line model operates 2,560 streaming processors, 160 TMUs, 64 rendering blocks and 256-bit line, which works together with the 8 GB GDDR5X RAM. The KFA2 GeForce GTX 1080 EXOC Sniper White frequency formula looks like 1,657–1,797/1,250(10,000) MHz for the core and memory respectively.
