MSI Unveils New Gaming Graphics Card GeForce GTX 760 Hawk

MSI has recently introduced its newest graphics adapter with the support of Twin BIOS technology. Codenamed MSI GeForce GTX 760 Hawk, the card positions itself as an optimal solution for inveterate gamers, as well as for overclockers. The new-comer is based on Nvidia’s GK104 GPU (28 nm technological process) with 1152 CUDA cores. It runs on dynamically heightened frequencies, as compared with the reference model.



Therefore, the nominal clock frequency has been raised from 980 MHz to 1033 MHz, whereas the overclocked frequency has jumped from 1111 MHz to 1176 MHz. As for the memory, represented by 2 GB GDDR5 modules with 256-bit rail, its frequency index has not undergone any changes: 1502 MHz/6008 MHz (nominal/overclocked).


To continue, GTX 760 Hawk takes a fully modified 8-layer PCB as the basis. GPU power supply is ensured by means of an efficient power converter and prime-quality Military Class 4 components, including solid-state Hi-C CAP capacitors with tantalum …

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 …

PNL-tec GmbH Launches Matr-X Series Chassis under Rasurbo Brand

Two new PC chassis, codenamed Matr-X A and Matr-X M, have replenished the line of products supplied by PNL-tech GmbH. The company delivered its chassis under Rasurbo brand and directed the models to the average price segment. Both models are developed in midi-tower form factor and are housed in steel casings painted black; they feature identical 485x197x493 mm dimensions but differ from each other by the side panel framework. Matr-X A contains a large transparent window on the side panel, while Matr-X M has got a blind panel.



Chassis Matr-X A and Matr-X M are fully compatible with micro-ATX and ATX motherboards. Their dimensions and facilities allow for the installation of seven expansion slots, six internal 3.5-/2.5-inch drives, and four external 5.25-inch drives. Functional section consists of a special dock-station for the connection of an additional drive; this dock-station is located on the top panel. Next to it, one can find a set of USB interfaces, counting a couple of …
