VIA Announces the Upcoming Release of VAB-800 Motherboard

VIA Technologies Inc., a global manufacturer of power-efficient processor platforms, has recently announced the release of its peculiar motherboard, codenamed VAB-800. The major peculiarity of these motherboards is that they will be delivered in two variants: with chips of VIA personal production, WonderMedia (800 MHz), and with Freescale ARM Cortex-A8 1 GHz chips. The volume capacities of DDR3 memory in either variant will equal to 1 GB. VAB-800 is developed in piro-ITX form-factor but is also compatible with blocks of ATX form-factor.

Motherboard VAB-800 accommodates flash-memory of eMMC type with the integrated SATA 3 Gbit/sec sockets. The total volume capacity of flash-memory equals to 64 GB. This model can boast a large number of internal sockets, including a couple of RS-232, two LVDS (to enable the connection with the up-to-date monitors), SATA, JTAG, SDIO, RTC, and a slot for the activation of the external power supply.

The manufacturer has taken care of the …

New RAM Modules Ballistix Sport SODIMM from Lexar Media

Lexar Media, a well-known American designer of diverse digital media products, starts selling its new RAM series from Ballistix line. Entitled Sport SODIMM, the series is introduced by four SODIMM-DDR3 modules, intended for the incorporation into gaming laptops: BLS4G3N169ES4, BLS8G3N169ES4, BLS4G3N18AES4, and BLS8G3N18AES4. The quadruple is distinguished by an original design with the implementation of unique heatspreaders. All of them are optimized for Intel Core i5/i7 mobile processors of the fourth generation (Intel Haswell platform) and support all up-dated XMP profiles.

The most beneficial feature applied to Ballistix Sport SODIMM modules is their power-saving nature. They are able to operate at 10% lower power voltage than analogous products; hence, they reduce the laptop’s power consumption index and increase the time of its offline work.

To continue, the first two models, BLS4G3N169ES4 and BLS8G3N169ES4, come in 4 GB and 8 GB capacities correspondingly. They …

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 …
