Xigmatek Intros New CPU Cooler Gaia II

Xigmatek, an outstanding manufacturer of cutting-edge PC components, announces the release of a new CPU cooler, entitled Gaia II. The model is developed in accordance with a traditional tower-like framework and might be truly called a universal cooling solution. It supports a large variety of platforms for processors with TDP level of not higher than 150 W: Intel Socket LGA 775/1366/1156 and AMD Socket AM2(+)/AM3(+)/FM2/FM1.

Cooler Gaia II is designed with the direct implementation of H.D.T. technology (Heat Pipe Direct Touch). This implies that all three copper heatpipes, which stem from the heatsink base, come into direct contact with the CPU surface. The heatpipes themselves have got U-shape structure and 8 mm dimensions. They pierce ‘multi-plate’ aluminum heatsink to provide for a better heat dissipation.

The model is delivered with a pre-installed 120 mm fan with bright orange blades; it is fixed to one of the heatsink sides and housed in a black frame. The fan is …

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 …
