Gigabyte Shows Off a Bespoke GTX 970 Graphics Card

Gigabyte has intrigued its fans by the design of an unusual videocard – the GeForce GTX 970 (GV-N970TTOC-4GD). It is based on Nvidia GM-204-200-A1 GPU (Maxwell) but with overclocked frequencies. The core operates at 1101 MHz/1241 MHz instead of etalon 1050 MHz/1178 MHz. The GPU is accompanied with 4 GB of GDDR5 memory (256-bit bus) that runs at 7010 MHz efficient clock frequency.



Gigabyte GeForce GTX 970 is distinguished by the implementation of Twin Turbo Fan cooling system. It consists of three copper heatpipes with direct touch technology, an aluminum heatsink, and a radial-flow fan; the latter grasps air from both sides of the adapter due to the shortened PCB design.


As a result, the airflow increases by 24%, whereas the cooling effect enhances by 29%. Thanks to this, the card is thought to be an optimal solution for Nvidia SLI configurations.


It should be noted that this graphics card boasts a high-quality hardware base – Ultra Durable VGA. A set of external …

Biostar to Release a Budget-Oriented A68I-450 Deluxe Motherboard

Biostar Microtech is going to release a new budget-oriented motherboard of mini-ITX form-factor. Codenamed Biostar A68I-450 Deluxe, it is peculiar by the employment of an onboard two-core hybrid processor – AMD 450D. The latter comprises two x86 Bobcat blocks, running at 1.65 GHz, and an in-built AMD Radeon HD 6320 graphics that is compatible with DirectX 11 standard. It should be noted that this CPU is cooled down thanks to a small-sized fan.



The motherboard is based on AMD A68 chipset for socket BGA FT1. It is able to offer a pair of 240-contact DIMM slots for DDR3 RAM with the maximal clock frequency of 1066 MHz (up to 16 GB modules). Expansion facilities are represented by a single PCIe 2.0 x16 slot, while storage is secured by three SATA III 6 Gb/sec ports. Network operation is relied on gigabit Ethernet adapter (Realtek RTL8111F), whereas audio subsystem runs under Realtek ALC662 controller, providing 5.1-channel sounding.


To continue, Biostar A68I-450 Deluxe is …

Release of Security Acceleration Module from Check Point

Check Point representatives have announced the release of their new creation Security Acceleration module. This module has been developed with the heightened security in mind, and according to the up-to-date hardware acceleration methodology with the consideration of the requirements stipulated by the high-performance environment.



Check Point is notable for the design of an advanced SecurityCore hardware-based technology which stimulated the development of a module with the firewall bandwidth of 110 Gbit/sec. At the same time, the latency level doesn’t exceed the margin of 5 microseconds. This technology employs parallel computing capabilities used for the process acceleration and safety. The module is equipped with 108 cores which allow the central processor to swap-out and transfer the vast majority of operations connected with the security issues to the Security Acceleration module. In its turn, this provides for the better safety options in network environment.
