Evga Launches One More Overclocked Graphics Card

Evga, a leading American supplier of 3D cards, is going to launch one more graphics card with factory overclocked speeds. A new model is based on Nvidia FeForce GTX 670 adapter and codenamed as Evga GeForce GTX 670 FTW LE. Its design resembles the one implemented in GeForce GTX 670 FTW card, but the main distinction between them is seen in frequency showings. The newbie demonstrates a bit lower frequency index than its predecessor.

Evga GeForce GTX 670 FTW LE is housed on a PCB designed for PCI-e 3.0 x16 bus. This card takes GK104 graphics core with 1344 CUDA cores as the basis; it is developed on Kepler architecture under 28 nm standards. Its inventory also embraces 2GB of GDDR5 memory (256-bit interface). Cooling system is introduced by a 2-slot cooler of active type with a single turbine-like fan. Power subsystem consists of two connection 6-pin sockets and requires a quite efficient PSU (not less than 500W power).

Frequency template looks the following way: GPU runs at …

Toshiba will increase the capacity of hard drives up to 600 terabytes

Toshiba is engaged in improving the existing hard drives in order to increase their capacity. Limited to several tens of terabytes, Japanese do not want to stop — they need at least 600 terabytes in a single 3.5-inch drive. To do this, Toshiba uses all the tools and opportunities, including temporary cooperation with companies, competitors, TDK, and Showa Denko KK.

The newly formed trio of producers focuses on the development of new technologies of recording information on magnetic media and improvement of existing methods. Alliance sees great prospective in the technology of the so-called «two-dimensional magnetic recording» (TDMR). It is experimental, but using, it is quite achievable to record density of 10 terabits per square inch, which thus gives the capacity of 600 terabytes in a single hard drive.

Of course, no one talks about the chances of such a capacious storage in the foreseeable future — Toshiba and its partners will have more than one year of research …

Radeon HD 7990: postponed, can not be executed

Nvidia's half hearted established the supply of dual-chipset videoadapter GeForce GTX 690. In turn, the competing Radeon HD 7990 is seriously delayed, although previously the release for late July was planned.

According to new information, AMD will officially unveil the video card, code-named New Zealand in the second half of August. Non-reference Radeon HD 7970 X2 from HIS, PowerColor and other AMD exclusive partners will debut, apparently, even later.

Most likely, Radeon HD 7990 will be announced at the annual exhibition Gamescom (Cologne) 16 to August 19. This is one of the few Premier Advanced Micro Devices, which will take place on the European continent: usually the company prefers to organize similar events in their home countries or in countries in South-east Asia.

Radeon HD 7990 GPU is equipped with two Tahiti XT (2x 2048 shader, 2x 128 TMU, 2x 32 ROP), two 384-bit memory buses and 2x 3 GB of RAM on-board of type GDDR5. Among other things, the card will …
