Nvidia Debuts with GeForce GTX 770 Graphics Adapter

Trailed by the flagship GeForce GTX 780 model, Nvidia officially launches one more high-performance graphics adapter of 700 series, codenamed GeForce GTX 770. Albeit the two products are rather similar in design (i.e. the incorporation of identical two-slot cooling system), their layout differs considerably. First of all, GTX 770 employs less efficient graphics core Nvidia GK104-425-A2 (28 nm) with 1536 CUDA cores, 128 TMUs, and 32 ROPs. At the same time this GPU operates at higher frequencies: 1046 MHz (nominal), 1085 MHz (dynamic).

Nvidia’s new entry comes either with 2 GB or 4 GB video memory modules of GDDR5 type. They employ 256-bit interface and ensure high bandwidth of 224 Gb/sec. Memory operational frequency is truly striking, demonstrating up to 1752 MHz (nominal) and up to 7010 MHz (dynamic) index. It should be noted that models with 4 GB modules will cost $50 more than those with 2 GB items (the recommended price makes up $399).

To continue, GeForce GTX 770 …

Motherboard MSI FM2-A85XA-G65A Review

Military-class motherboards elaborated by MSI have been always distinguished by the implementation of all high-end components within supply circuits, by extended overclocking facilities, and by corresponding exterior design. FM2-A85XA-G65A model corroborates such outstanding descriptions, being a worthy representative of products branded as ‘Military’. Moreover, the integration of high-quality and solid hardware elements enhances its overclocking potential that can’t but gladden PC enthusiasts.

Design and Layout

MSI FM2-A85XA-G65A is developed in ATX form-factor. It is notable by a fanciful, spacious layout, taking into account the full-fledged options integrated within a single chipset. Thus, there is no need in additional controllers. The distance between two graphics slots has been doubled to organize even the most powerful CrossFire configurations. The integrated heatsinks feature 31 mm height; one of them is located only 5 mm far from CPU socket. This implies …

Asus to Release Entry-Level Radeon R7 250 Graphics Card

Asus has added a new entry-level graphics card based on Radeon R7 250 adapter to its inventory. Codenamed R7250-OC-2GD3, it is predestined to be employed in corporate and multimedia systems, which are bound to support graphics interface of various applications, play back video, edit photos, and to start unexacting games. The model features a bright design and some remarkable facilities that promise to make work and entertainment experience a delight.

Asus Radeon R7 250 is based on 28 nm GCN chip (AMD Radeon R7 250) that contains 384 stream processors. It runs at the nominal 1060 MHz frequency but can be overclocked to 1110 MHz; that makes 60 MHz more if compared with the etalon adapter. Memory subsystem is introduced by 2 GB of DDR3 memory chips with 128-bit rail. Their nominal clock frequency starts at 900 MHz with the possibility to reach 1800 MHz effective margin.

This graphics card employs a modified PCB that comes with Super Alloy Power hardware base. All the included …
