Palit to Release a Pair of GTX 1060 Video Cards

Palit is enlarging its lineup of GeForce GTX 1060 adapters with a pair of new models. The GTX 1060 Dual 3GB and the GTX 1060 StormX 3G are developed on Nvidia GP106-300 GPUs (16 FinFet), featuring 1152 CUDA cores, 72 TMUs & 48 ROPs. It runs at 1506/1708 MHz frequency (standard/dynamic). Both models are accompanied by 3 GB of GDDR5 memory (192-bit bus) that operates at 2000/8000 MHz frequency (standard/efficient).

The key differentiation between the models lies in the cooling system. Palit GeForce GTX 1060 StormX 3G is equipped with a single fan, replenished with a main heatsink and an additional one, housed on the power circuit. In its turn, Palit Geforce GTX 1060 Dual 3GB is fitted with a voluminous rectangular heat spreader, three copper heat pipes as well as two fans. Thus, it’s an ideal choice for overclockers.

Both video cards employ a single 6-pin connector to draw power. They feature a high-quality hardware base which counts solid-state capacitors, DrMOS chips, …

Velox V55 and Slim S55: Two New SSD Series from Silicon Power

Silicon Power, a well-known developer of flash-memory drives, as well as HHD and DRAM, has replenished its inventory with two new SSD series, codenamed Velox V55 and Slim S55. All the models included into the lineups are traditionally designed in 2.5-inch form-factor. Both series will be represented in the market by three models of 60 GB, 120 GB and 240 GB capacity. Their major advantage over rival products lies in acceleration of all operations connected with upload, speed boosting and general performance. Therefore, these SSDs are just perfect for ‘highly-demanding’ users.

Velox V55 solid-state drives are housed in resistant cases made of polished aluminum. All three models feature identical dimensions: 100x70x9 mm and weigh 79 g. The drives are based on SandForce controller and employ SATA III (6 Gb/sec) interface. The maximal sequential speed index claimed by the developer approximates 550 Mb/sec on reading operations and 470 Mb/sec on writing operations. Velox V55 …

Some More Details about Intel Core i7 Haswell Processors

As it was publicized earlier this year, a new generation of Intel Haswell processors will be launched in spring 2013. Along with the line of CPUs for desktop systems, Intel will release a series of mobile CPUs. The release is planned for April 2013. Intel Core i7 Haswell will be a pioneer mobile series and will count only three models: Intel Core i7-4930MX Extreme Edition, Intel Core i7-4900MQ and Core i7-4800MQ. All three models are going to become the best match for laptops of gaming class and portable work stations due to their power consumption.

Intel Core i7-4930MX Extreme Edition is a flagship model in the series. It features four cores and supports Hyper-Threading Technology that enables the operation not with four currents (as the majority of contemporary 4-core CPUs do) but with eight currents. Its nominal clock frequency equals to 3GHz, but thanks to the support of Turbo mode the index might be increased to 3.9GHz with one enabled core and up to 3.7 GHz with all …
