Gigabyte Releases GeForce GTX 680 (GV-N680WF5-2GD) Graphics Card

Last year Gigabyte released a flagship graphics card from Super Overclock series, entitled Gigabyte GeForce GTX 680 SOC (codename: GV-N680SO-2GD). The card was differentiated by the increased clock frequencies, as compared with the etalon model. These days the company has introduced one more representative from Super Overclock series – model GeForce GTX 680 (codename: GV-N680WF5-2GD). It differs from the predecessor by keeping the etalon GPU clock frequencies (1006 MHz – nominal and 1058 MHz – boost) and by optimizing memory clock frequencies (1550 MHz – nominal, 6200 MHz – effective).

The greenhorn is based on Nvidia GK104 GPU, featuring 1536 CUDA cores, and is furnished with 2 GB of GDDR5 memory modules (256-bit interface). The incorporated PCB employs a brand Ultra Durable VGA+ technology that stipulates the increase of copper in some layers. In addition, it implies the employment of an improved hardware layout, including metallic and ferrite chokes, polar Low …

Graphics Card Sapphire Toxic HD 7970 GHz Edition Review

Up-to-date facilities provided by graphics cards manufacturers allow customers to create various graphic configurations, including the activation of several monitors within a single card. Indeed, contemporary technical approaches transform traditional video adapters into video gurus. The latest development of Sapphire, a flagship model Toxic HD 7970 GHz Edition, offers up to 6 GB of GDDR5 memory and promotes for the activation of six monitors in Eyefinity. Such options exceed those integrated into a reference model, AMD Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition, and are able to ensure a dramatic increase in performance.

Technical Peculiarities

Sapphire decided to base its flagship model on GPU AMD Tahiti with an integrated delimiter which lowers the clock frequency on the overshoot of thermal threshold. Its standard frequency equals to 1050 MHz, nominal frequency – 1100 MHz; sill, this GPU features Lethal Boost options that increase the frequencies up to 1200 MHz. This graphics card is …

I-O Data Introduces New SSDN-3V to the Home Market

I-O Data, a well-known Japanese developer of top-tier peripheral and interface products, is going to introduce its new SSD series, codenamed SSDN-3V. The newbies will become available in the home market already at the end of the current month. The series involves three models of 60 GB (SSDN-3V60), 120 GB(SSDN-3V120), and 240 GB (SSDN-3V240) capacities. All the models are thought to support SATA 6 Gb/sec interface.

Solid-state drives from I-O Data are based on SandForce/LSI SF-2281 controller and employ NAND flash-memory, designed under 24 nm technological process. SSDs feature 7 mm case depth, but the availability of a dedicated adapter promotes for their installation into a standard 9.5 mm drive bay.

In regard to performance, SSDN-V3 drives offer up to 306 MB/sec speed on consecutive reading operations and up to 186 MB/sec on consecutive writing operations.

Moreover, the manufacturer will deliver the products in a package with a special adapter for the connection …
