ASRock Launches Z170M-PIO2 Mainboard with Unusual Layout

ASRock has stricken the general public by the development of a motherboard with an extraordinary layout. As a rule, mainboards targeting all-in-one solutions are void of expansion slots for graphics cards, due to lack of space. However, ASRock has designed a space-efficient model with an integrated PCI Express 3.0 x16 slot. Yet, it’s localized parallel to the PCB as against standard items with perpendicular slot orientation.

ASRock Z170M-PIO2 is based on Intel Z170 chipset for Socket LGA1511 platforms. It supports Intel Celeron/Pentium/Core i3/Core i5/Core i7 CPUs. The PCB features a pair of DIMM slots for the installation of DDR4 memory modules with the maximum clock frequency of 3466 MHz (up to 32 GB of capacity). Storage subsystem is introduced by 4 SATA 6 Gb/sec ports as well as a single Ultra M.2 x4 slot.

As far as expansion is concerned, the model accommodates a single PCIe 3.0 x 16 slot and one M.2 2230 slot, occupied by Wi-Fi/Bluetooth adapter. The 7.1-channel …

Nvidia Announces Quadro K6000 Professional Graphics Solution

Nvidia is going to release a new graphics card for professional use from Quadro series. Entitled Quadro K6000, it is targeting high-performance workstations, due to an uncommon computing efficiency with 5.2 TFLOPS single precision. This graphics adapter fully utilizes the computing possibilities of GK110 GPU and accommodates 12 GB(!) memory to lead across the segment.

Nvidia Quadro K6000 is based on GK110 graphics core (Kepler 28 nm architecture). As distinct from mainstream customer-oriented versions with neutered core – Titan, GeForce GTX 780/770 – this model employs a full-fledge core. This results in the augmentation of CUDA cores up to 2880 items, ROPs — up to 48 items, and TMUs — up to 256 items. GK110 here runs at 900 MHz.

In reference to GDDR5 video memory, its overall capacity makes up 12 GB, which is twice more than mainstream processors have. Its nominal clock frequency equals to 1502 MHz, while its effective index rises up to 6008 MHz. The connection …

Aresze Announces Chassis with Noiseless Cooling System

Enthusiasts and gamers might sigh with relief after their prolonged attempts to find the chassis for the creation of high-performance gaming systems. Aresze is going to release chassis, codenamed Seediq 8003, of new generation which is a perfect match for high-end gaming systems with unique cooling facilities. The chassis is developed in midi-tower form factor and features 520x215x508 mm dimensions. The casing is made of steel alloy, and is ready to accommodate motherboards of micro-ATX and ATX standards.

Despite the average dimensions, Aresze Seediq 8003 is compatible with CPU fans of 175 mm in height, large graphics adapters of up to 300 mm in length with HDD bays and up to 430 mm – without HDD bays, as well as, power supply units of ATX/EPS standard. This chassis has got quite efficient internal layout. Hence, it's equipped with ten sections for drives (four external 5.25 inch drives and six internal 2.5- 3.5 inch drives) and eight PCI slots for four graphics adapters.
