Which DDR3 SDRAM is better for Ivy Bridge

The overclocker memory is now in the category of products for perfectionists, still the common users are pleased with usual modules DDR3-1600 or DDR3-1333 SDRAM. The issue appears related to the release of processors Ivy Bridge series, which in some aspects are similar to its predecessors, still have some distinctive features.

Ivy Bridge processors are restricted on the maximum frequency supported by the DDR3 SDRAM. This indicates the theoretical chance of these processors work with high-speed memory DDR3-3200 SDRAM. Developers of overclocker memory package perceived the change in rules with certain enthusiasm: there are DDR3-2400 modules available in stores. The gap in frequencies of «elite» and «running» versions of the memory has grown twice in size. It won’t have a noteworthy blow on the work of commonly used tasks in systems.

The memory controller in the Ivy Bridge can work both in symmetric mode, with delay, frequency and volume modules in memory channels, and …

Asus Showcases a Stylish VX238N-W Monitor

Asus has enriched its production line with a new PC monitor, entitled VX238N-W, that is characterized by an elegant design. The model is peculiar, first of all, by a totally white display frame and stand, which does not change coloring under the influence of UV or sunrays. The heart of 23-inch VX238N-W is TN panel with LED backlight and 5 ms response time. It features a standard 16:9 aspect ratio, Full HD resolution, 80M:1 dynamic contrast (1000:1 static contrast), 250 nits brightness, as well as 170/160 degrees (H/V) viewing angles.

The monitor is equipped with two video interfaces – D-Sub and DVI-D – that allow for the connection either to analog or digital signal source. One more peculiar feature ascribed to VX238N-W is the support for a number of advanced technologies. For instant, it supports Smart Contrast options that guarantee some unbelievable contrast ratio. Splendid Video Preset Modes options involve six pre-calibrated display modes that correspond to different …

They Did It! Official Release of AMD Radeon HD 7990 ‘Malta’

Much rumored reference graphics adapter from AMD has been recently officially introduced. As it was suggested before, Radeon HD 7990, codenamed ‘Malta’, employs two Tahiti XT2 GPUs, each of which contains 128 TMUs, 32 rasterization blocks (ROPs), and 2048 current processors (GCN architecture). Smooth work of both graphics cores is synchronized by means of PLX PEX8747 controller that supports 48 lines of PCI Express 3.0. Nominal clock frequencies ascribed to GPUs operation equal to 950 MHz, but Turbo mode enables the increase of frequencies up to 1000 MHz.

Video memory is represented by GDDR5 memory modules, the overall capacity of which equals to 6 GB (3 GB per each graphics core). Memory modules utilize 384-bit bus and run at 6000 MHz frequency with bandwidth of 288 Gb/sec per core. The incorporated PCB accommodates a single CrossFireX socket for the creation of various graphics configurations, including Quad-CrossFireX. Video interface panel boasts the availability of …
