MSI Adds a Pair of GTX 1070 Quick Silver 8G Graphics Cards to Its Portfolio

It feels as if MSI never stops experimenting with its PC solutions. This time the company decided to tinker with color gamut of the graphics cards. Therewith, it introduced a couple of comic-colored video cards, entitled GeForce GTX 1070 Quick Silver 8G & GeForce GTX 1070 Quick Silver 8G OC. The black-and-gray coating might become a stylish add-on to any gaming rig.



Both video cards are based on Nvidia GP104-200 GPU (16 FinFET, Pascal) with 1920 CUDA, 120 TMUs & 64 ROPs. The models are able to operate in three modes: Silent, Gaming and OC; hence, the core’s clock frequencies depend on the mode. MSI GeForce GTX 1070 Quick Silver 8G operates at 1506/1683 MHz (base/dynamic) in Silent mode; 1518/1708 MHz in Gaming mode and 1531/1721 MHz in OC mode. The accompanying 8 GB of GDDR5 video memory (256-bit) runs equally on any conditions – 8008 MHz.


In its turn, MSI GeForce GTX 1070 Quick Silver 8G OC is able to demonstrate the following performance index: 1506/1683 MHz in …

Platinum PSU FSP Aurum 92+ 650W Review

Up-to-date power supply units are able to achieve 80-90% efficiency due to 80 Plus standard. The integration of this standard provides for better power-saving facilities, heat level and noise level. Still, some customers give preference to performance rather than energy saving; thus PSUs from FSP will become the most wise solution for such people. Last year FSP introduced Aurum series and today the company expands the line with a new model — Aurum 92+. The model is represented so far with a single power variation – 650W, and corresponds to 80 Plus Platinum requirements.



General Peculiarities


Correspondence to Platinum standards implies that FSP Aurum 92+ unit should demonstrate not less than 91% nominal efficiency, 90% efficiency at 20 percent loading, and 94% efficiency at 50 percent loading. Testing results prove the claimed characteristics, making this model a desirable high-end acquirement. Aurum 92+ is delivered in a standard cardbox that contains FSP logo …

Intel Debuts with the 7th-Generation Core CPUs

Intel announces the next, 7th generation of Intel Core processors, aka Intel Kaby Lake. The Intel U and the Intel Y series models were the first to debut. Each series involves three models, based on 14 nm Intel Skylake microarchitecture. Optimized design promises 12% increase in performance, if compared with the 6th-gen solutions.



New Intel Core CPUs are known to support 10-bit HEVC & VP9 standards which ensure high-quality operation in 4K Ultra HD and 4K Ultra HD 360 environments. All greenhorns come with an integrated Intel Speed Shift technology which secures fast responsiveness on web surfing. Besides, all models are considered to be power efficient; they increase laptop’s/ultrabook’s battery life to 9.5 hours, when watching 4K video content.


Intel Core 7th generation processors support PCI Express 3.0 internal interface as well as NVMe & Thunderbolt 3 interfaces. More details about each CPU are provided below.
