Palit to Release GTX 780 JetStream 6 GB Graphics Card in a Few Days

Palit has officially claimed that a long-awaited kick-off of GeForce GTX 780 JetStream graphics card with 6 GB memory will take place in mid-April. The model is differentiated not only the doubled video memory capacity, but also by the incorporation of an offbeat three-slot cooling system and factory overclocking. The privileges offered by the card will be available for the customers with about €600 in their pockets.



Palit GeForce GTX 780 JetStream 6 GB is based on GK110-300-A1 GPU with 2304 CUDA cores, 48 ROPs, and 192 TMUs. The core operates at the basic 902 MHz frequency, still it might be overclocked to 954 MHz level. The implemented GDDR5 modules employ 384-bit bus and run at an effective 6 GHz frequency (1.5 GHz nominal index).


Power supply is delivered through one 8-pin socket and one 6-pin socket. The estimated TDP level makes up 250 W. Video connectivity is realized by means of four dedicated ports: HDMI 1.4a, DisplayPort 1.2, DL DVI-I, DL DVI-D. In addition, …

Lifting the Veil from USB Type-C Bus

Since the launch in 1995, Universal Serial Bus (USB) has proved itself as the most successful ever computing interface. Nowadays tens of billions of electronic devices are connected together due to it. It goes without saying that this bus has outlived a few modifications, each distinguished by higher speed and reliability. Thus, today the community is able to revel in a completely new modification – USB Type-C – that forecasts a lot privileges of connectivity process. Let’s see what users will get with a new bus.



Layout and Connectivity


In physical terms, Type-C is a bit larger than USB 2.0 Micro-B but a bit tinier than binary USB 3.0 Micro-B, featuring 8.34x2.56 mm. Such dimensions enable its connection to the devices of any type, including the thinnest smartphones/tablets. The oval-shaped socket houses 24 contact outputs (to compare: USB 3.0 sockets feature only 9 outputs).


The most outstanding physical peculiarity of Type-C is a symmetric connector that …

The Latest Nvidia Volta Graphics Processors Are Expected to be Designed in Accordance with 12 nm Technology-specific Rules

Allegedly, in 2017 NVIDIA is going to release a new generation of Volta graphics processors, designed in conformity with 12 nm technology-specific rules. According to these rumours, Volta will take Pascal’s place in supercomputing, artificial intelligence and machine learning systems. It is expected, that modern chips will be manufactured at TSMC factories.



Moreover, in addition to supercomputing solutions, the chip manufacturer plans to launch a series of video cards, based on Pascal Refresh graphics engines. One of the first samples may be GeForce GTX 2080 Ti with a GP102 chip, utilized in the current GeForce GTX Titan X flagship.


The present-day GeForce GTX 1080 and GTX 1070 successors will obtain the GDDR5X memory support and higher operating frequency providing increase in productivity. Simultaneously, the number of CUDAs won’t change.


The mid-graphics segment will be represented by upgraded GeForce GTX 2060 Ti, GTX 2060, as well as GTX 2050 models, which …
