Greeting a Flagship L337 Gaming Z97-Machine Motherboard from ECS

ECS has announced the release of its flagship motherboard based on Intel Z97 chipset – the L337 Gaming Z97-Machine. The model is thought to be used for the creation of some powerful gaming configurations. It employs Socket LGA1150 platform that supports 4th and 5th generation of Intel Core/Pentium/Celeron CPUs. Featuring ATX form-factor (305x220 mm), the board might become an ideal complement to the high-end PC system.

ECS L337 Gaming Z97-Machine houses four DIMM slots for DDR3 memory modules; the maximal capacity of memory might not exceed 32 GB, whereas the maximal clock frequencies might approach 3000 MHz. Storage subsystem offers 4x SATA III 6 Gb/sec ports for the connection of standard drives (support for RAID 0/1/5/10 configurations), 1x M.2 NGFF port for the connection of solid-state drives of diverse length. Expansion facilities involve 2x PCI-e 3.0 x16 connectors and 3x PCI-e 2.0 x16 connectors.

Network LAN operates under gigabit Intel I218 controller. Audio …

MSI Unveils GeForce GTX 900 Gaming Graphics Couple

Following a long-lived trend in PC hardware market, MSI has unveiled its two new videocards of GeForce GTX 900 (Maxwell architecture) series just after Nvidia’s official release. The MSI GTX 970 Gaming 4G and the MSI GTX 980 Gaming 4G models boast both, identical and dissimilar features with their reference companions. But all in good time.

Videocards from MSI are characterized by analogous with Nvidia’s models memory subsystem. Hence, it has 4 GB of GDDR5 memory modules with 256-bit interface, 224 Gb/sec bandwidth, and 7010 MHz efficient clock frequency. Quite the contrary, both GPUs differ from the etalons, chiefly due to the integration of Gaming App brand utility; the latter enables GPUs to run in one of three available modes: Silent, Gaming and OC.

The MSI GTX 970 Gaming 4G operates at 1051 MHz/1114 MHz/1140 MHZ at the start (showings for three modes) but might be overclocked to 1178 MHz/1253 MHz/1279 MHz respectively. The MSI GTX 980 Gaming 4G runs at 1140 …

Palit Announces an Overclocked GTX 760 JetStream Graphics Card

Palit has replenished its line of gaming graphics adapters with a new model, codenamed Palit GeForce GTX 760 JetStream. It is differentiated by an original design of the PCB, a highly-efficient JetStream cooling system, and a factory overclocking. Outstanding overclocking potential is secured by the implementation of high-quality components, such as DrMOS MOSFET transistors.

The new-comer employs PCI Express 3.0 x16 interface and is based on GK104 GPU (28 nm Kepler microarchitecture). The core consists of 1152 stream processors, 32 ROPs and 96 TMUs. It runs at an overclocked frequency of 1072 MHz, but on activating GPU Boost technology, this index rises to 1137 MHz high. Such showings exceed the reference parameters at about 10%.

To continue, this graphics card is equipped with 2 GB of GDDR5 memory type that runs also at heightened frequencies. Hence, the nominal clock frequency makes up 1550 MHz, while GPU Boost increases this index to 6200 MHz. Memory subsystem employs …
