PowerColor Outs an Overclocked Radeon R9 270 OC Graphics Card

Along with other AMD partners, PowerColor has elaborated its own version of Radeon R9 270 adapter. The PowerColor Radeon R9 270 OC is differentiated from rival products by an improved cooling system and factory overclocked frequencies. Its release is scheduled for late November and the retail price won’t hit over $180.

To begin with, this graphics card is naturally based on AMD Curacao Pro GPU, developed under 28 nm technological process. It consists of 1280 current processors, 32 ROPs and 64 TMUs. The core runs at 930 MHz frequency and is able to gain 955 MHz frequency on overclocking. The incorporation of GDDR5 memory (2 GB) with 256-bit bus interface ensures some striking bandwidth of 180 Gb/sec; this provides for the support of gaming applications with high resolution. Memory chip operates at 1400 MHz nominal frequency but might gain the index of 5600 MHz of effective frequency on overclocking.

The Release of Unprecedented Extrememory USB Xtasy

Extrememory, a German manufacturer of versatile memory drives and PC components, has just announced the release of a new flash-drive series USB Xtasy. There would be nothing special in this release, but the company decided to amaze average customers, as well as IT professionals, by the unprecedented compact dimensions of their new drives. The drives have got solid aluminum casing of 39mm x 12mm x 4mm in size and are designed with the note of refinement and style in mind.

Extrememory USB Xtasy are based on COB technology which presupposes the aggregation of the circuit board and memory chip into a single unit. The drives are able to develop the reading and writing speed up to 18 Mb/sec and 6 Mb/sec correspondingly. They are equipped with the integrated USB 2.0 socket and have the backward compatibility with USB 1.1 sockets. USB Xtasy series will go in 8, 16, 32, and 64 GB of volume capacity to comply with the needs of different target groups.

Next year TSMC will start manufacturing the first 20nm chips

The Taiwanese company TSMC confirmed its intention to start production of chips using 20 nm technological processes in 2013. However, for now the company does not plan its production on an industrial scale and will release the first chips in a limited quantities, giving them a total of 1% of production capacity. According to the head of the company, the mass production of semiconductor chips with this technology will not begin until 2014.

Meanwhile TSMC Company is going to produce only one version of the chip, which will be able to enter into the wide range of devices, from smart phones with low-power to high-performance graphics cards. For comparison, the Taiwanese company currently has four different output chips on 28-nm technology. These are 28LP (poly / SiON) for low-power low-cost chips, 28HPL (HKMG) for use in low power applications, 28HP (HKMG) for high-performance chips and 28HPM (HKMG). The latest version combines elements of high-performance chips with high efficiency …
