Intel to Take Care about Power-Efficiency of Ivy Bridge Processors

The rising competition between the two giants in the manufacture of processing units, Intel and AMD, makes each of the two invent ever newer technologies and implement them in their products. The attempts to dominate in the market and win as many consumers usually develop into brand new approaches and brand new advanced facilities.

In this light, Intel is going to upgrade its Ivy Bridge processors to make them more power-efficient. But power-efficiency does not imply that processing units will show less performance; quite the contrary, the manufacturer is willing to combine an utmost performance with the maximal power efficiency level.

Currently, the most power-saving processors of Ivy Bridge generation can be found in mobile devices on Windows platform and in Apple MacBook Air devices. Their TDP level is recorded at 17W. As appears from the above mentioned, the TDP level in upgraded Ivy Bridge processors will be lower than 17W, though the developers do not voice the margin …

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 …
