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 …

I-O Data Introduces New SSDN-3V to the Home Market

I-O Data, a well-known Japanese developer of top-tier peripheral and interface products, is going to introduce its new SSD series, codenamed SSDN-3V. The newbies will become available in the home market already at the end of the current month. The series involves three models of 60 GB (SSDN-3V60), 120 GB(SSDN-3V120), and 240 GB (SSDN-3V240) capacities. All the models are thought to support SATA 6 Gb/sec interface.

Solid-state drives from I-O Data are based on SandForce/LSI SF-2281 controller and employ NAND flash-memory, designed under 24 nm technological process. SSDs feature 7 mm case depth, but the availability of a dedicated adapter promotes for their installation into a standard 9.5 mm drive bay.

In regard to performance, SSDN-V3 drives offer up to 306 MB/sec speed on consecutive reading operations and up to 186 MB/sec on consecutive writing operations.

Moreover, the manufacturer will deliver the products in a package with a special adapter for the connection …

Aerocool Intros Dead Silence System Fans

Aerocool Advanced Technologies is going to launch a new lineup of 140/120 mm system fans, entitled Dead Silence. As seen from the title, the products are distinguished by absolutely noiseless operation. However, this is not the only attraction. The lineup is introduced by bicolor models with black frames and white/blue/red/black mounting components. Four onboard LED backlight add to the fans’ aesthetic effect.

All the fans are designed on a hydrodynamic bearing that is able to run approximately 100.000 hours on end. All of them are connected to the motherboard by means of a 3-pin connector. The blades are made of two different materials (rubber and plastic), whereas their reverse side features a dedicated Fish-eye design. It provides for the minimization of turbulence. Moreover, four rubber clamps on the frame’s edges terminate the vibration and noise.

To proceed with the peculiarities, Aerocool Dead Silence fans of 120 mm dimensional type rotate at the maximal 1200 …
