Gigabyte Unveils GTX 1080 D5X 8G Graphics Card

Gigabyte has gladdened all enthusiasts with the launch of a high-performance video card, entitled GeForce GTX D5X 8G. The new-comer boasts mill overclocking, a modified design & the implementation of a 3-fan cooler. The model comes equipped with Nvidia GP104-400 GPU that offers two operational modes: Gaming & OC. In Gaming mode the core runs at 1607/1733 MHz frequency, while in OC mode it rises up to 1632/1771 MHz frequency.



The GPU is accompanied by 8 GB of GDDR5X memory that operates at an effective index of 10010 MHz. The PCB is perfected by Ultra Durable VGA hardware base with the employment of copper in some layers as well as an enforced power supply subsystem (8+2-phase).


Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1080 D5X 8G accommodates WindForce 3X cooler. It consists of three composite copper heatpipes, a dual-section aluminum heatsink, a backplate, and three fans. It should be noted that when the system loading is insufficient, the cooler goes to the passive mode.

Seagate Launches the 5th Generation FireCuda SSHD

Seagate has expanded its lineup of hybrid drives with the 5th-generation FireCuda SSHD. The greenhorns are based on shingled magnetic recording technology (SMR), rather than perpendicular magnetic recording (PMR). The SMR enables the partial superposition of data tracks; it ensures the ultimate record density. The models are backed by a 5-year’s limited warranty.



Seagate FireCuda series is introduced by 5 models, developed in 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch formats. Their capacity varies from 500 GB to 2 TB. The drives employ MLC flash memory (8 GB) as well as SATA 6 Gb/sec external interface. The spindle rotates at 5400 RPM.


The average data read speed makes up 140 MB/sec with 2.5-inch models & 156 MB/sec with 3.5-inch items. The latter offer also up to 190 MB/sec of the average read speed from flash memory; besides, it takes only 8.5-9.5 ms for the chips to search for the needed data on Read/Write operations. To add, the new FireCuda is thought to consume between 1.7-6.7 W power.

ASRock Unleashes Hyper OC Series of Overclocking-Oriented Mainboards

ASRock is thought to be an innovator in the development of hardware know-hows. The Computex 2016 came as no exclusion: the company introduced a lineup of overclocked mainboards which joined Hyper OC series. Initially, the lineup consisted of three models – H170 Pro4/Hyper, B150M Pro4/Hyper & H110M-DS/Hyper; further on, it will be replenished by three other models – Fatal1ty H170 Performance/Hyper, Fatal1ty B150 Gaming K4/Hyper & B150A-X1/Hyper.



As seen from the codenames, the motherboards are based on Intel B150, H170 and H110 chipsets which employ ASRock Hyper BCLK Engine controller; it overclocks Intel Skylake CPUs by means of BCLK alteration, without dislocating other components. The new-comers support the installation of superfast DDR4 RAM, graphics cards with PCI-e 3.0 x16 interfaces as well as voluminous drives (including Ultra M.2).


ASRock H170 Pro4/Hyper features the following specifications:

— chipset: Intel H170;

— memory: 4x DDR4;

— storage: …
