Graphics Card Zotac GTX 650 Ti AMP! Edition Review

The demand for a separate graphics solution relies greatly on its performance in correlation to its price. High-end cards usually go at high price, but still it's feasible to detect a model that would also be acceptable in cost. Zotac has recently released, as claimed by the manufacturer, the most powerful graphics card in the series. Codenamed Zotac GTX 650 Ti AMP! Edition, it is delivered with the factorial overclocking parameters. This signifies that the card operates at heightened frequencies from the very beginning. Moreover, this product is ready to gladden the potential audience with an affordable price in combination with an utmost performance.



PCB Design and Delivery


Following the general tendencies, Zotac implemented its singular facilities in the design of a printed circuit board. Microcircuit chips are soldered on both sides of the board; this implies that graphics card Zotac GTX 650 Ti AMP! Edition houses 2GB memory with 128-bit bus interface. The chips are …

SilverStone Comes Out with Precision PS12 Chassis

The lineup of tower cases developed by SilverStone has been replenished by a new price-efficient solution, entitled Precision PS12. The model features 405x360x170 mm dimensions and is ready to accommodate small-sized motherboards (mini-ITX, micro-ATX) as well as four expansion cards. The chassis is made of high-quality plastic, supplemented by a fine-meshed metallic grid on the front panel.



Inside, there is a single rack for the installation of optical drives; it’s estimated for two 5.25-inch units. There is also space for 4x 3.5-inch drives and 1x 2.5-inch drive. Hence, there is little space for graphics adapters, the length of which should not exceed 358 mm. The layout is intended for 140-mm high CPU coolers & standard ATX PS/2 power supply units.


SilverStone Precision PS12 is shipped with a single preinstalled 120-mm fan (front panel). Additionally, it’s possible to include one 80-mm fan (front panel) and one 80-/92-mm fan (rear panel). Pricing is set at $45.

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 …
