The Latest Nvidia Volta Graphics Processors Are Expected to be Designed in Accordance with 12 nm Technology-specific Rules

Allegedly, in 2017 NVIDIA is going to release a new generation of Volta graphics processors, designed in conformity with 12 nm technology-specific rules. According to these rumours, Volta will take Pascal’s place in supercomputing, artificial intelligence and machine learning systems. It is expected, that modern chips will be manufactured at TSMC factories.



Moreover, in addition to supercomputing solutions, the chip manufacturer plans to launch a series of video cards, based on Pascal Refresh graphics engines. One of the first samples may be GeForce GTX 2080 Ti with a GP102 chip, utilized in the current GeForce GTX Titan X flagship.


The present-day GeForce GTX 1080 and GTX 1070 successors will obtain the GDDR5X memory support and higher operating frequency providing increase in productivity. Simultaneously, the number of CUDAs won’t change.


The mid-graphics segment will be represented by upgraded GeForce GTX 2060 Ti, GTX 2060, as well as GTX 2050 models, which …

Acer Continues to Release Ready-Assembled PCs and Produces Aspire XC-730

A new product by Acer resembles a nettop in appearance. However, taking into account its 419.5 × 100 × 291.6 mm dimensions, we should not concern it to be of this type of devices. This is about Aspire XC-730, operated by the preinstalled Windows 10 Home (64-bit) OS.



The system is based on the 4-core Intel Apollo Lake Pentium J4205 processor with 1.5–2.6 GHz actual frequency. The Acer Aspire XC-730 features 2 MB of cache SM, DDR4/DDR3L RAM dual-channel controller and an Intel HD 505 graphics solution. The CPU cooling system is likely to be passive; and the side panel holes provide additional chilling of inner components without the need in extra fans. The volume of RAM memory equals to 4 GB, though, can be extended to 8 GB. The HDD capacity is 1 TB at 7,200 rpm.


The novelty from Acer is equipped with a DVD-writer, an HDMI, a DisplayPort, a D-Sub, audio and four USB 3.0 ports, as well as with a Gigabit Ethernet slot and Wi-Fi adapter. The power consumption rate of this PC …

Meeting New Cooling System Brocken 2 from Alpenfoehn

Only a couple of weeks are left till the official release of a new cooling system Brocken 2 designed by Alpenfoehn. This is a long-awaited launch, since the fist version of the system, entitled Brocken, was honored to gladden the audience long time ago. Hereby, Brocken 2 has got a wee bit modified framework, if compared with the predecessor. Its dimensions together with a fan equal to 146x100x165 mm.



The base is shaped by means of five 6 mm copper heat pipes, tightly pressed together. Aluminum plates of the heatsink seem to be ‘cut’ in the center, unlike the one-piece construction of plates implemented in Brocken.


Active cooling power is ensured by a nine-blade fan of 140 mm standard size, known as WingBoost 2. The fan supports PWM technology that allows altering its rotational speed within the boundaries of 400-1100 RPM. Its activity stimulates the airflow index of 109 CFM, while the noise level barely achieves 19.6 dB (A). WingBoost 2 features small distance between …
