EK Introduces Water Blocks of SR-X and FC7970 Series

EK Water Blocks, a Slovenian company that won a good reputation due to manufacturing of water cooling systems, has gladdened the Internet community by the release of two new products: water blocks EK-FC7970 and EK-FB Kit SR-X. The two models are intended for the implementation in premium-class motherboards Evga Classified SR-X and graphics cards MSI R7970 Lightning.



Water block EK-FC7970 covers the whole surface of the graphics card circuit board; water current passes over GPU, voltage controllers and memory microchips. This model is delivered in a single variant with nickel-plated base and silver-black lid from acetal resin. The nominal delivery set includes EK-FC Link bridge that empowers the creation of CrossFireX configuration in the implementation of four graphics cards.


To continue, water block EK-FB Kit SR-X is a complex solution that provides coverage for all essential components of Evga Classified SR-X motherboard. Thus, it covers Intel C606 chip, …

ARM Readies Cortex-A72 and Mali-T880 for Mobile Devices

ARM has just announced a series of solutions for the upcoming next-generation mobile SoC. The most notable developments are Cortex-A72 processor and Mali-T880 graphics. According to the manufacturer, both components will be interconnected within SoC by means of CoreLink – CCI-500. The launch of new items is scheduled for 2016. Rockchip, MediaTek and HiSilicon are among the companies to integrate both elaborations into their products.



It should be noted that Cortex- A72 is a successor of Cortex-A57, taking analogous 64-bit operations but demonstrating three times higher performance. The new-comer will be designed under 16 nm FinFET+ technological process. Its layout corresponds to big.LITTLE framework requirements; this promotes for its combination with other ARM cores.


As far as Mali-T880 GPU is concerned, it provides for 1.8 response time increase if compared with the Mali-T760 model. Herewith, its power consumption is reduced by 40%. Moreover, this GPU might support 4K …

Non-reference GTX 760 Graphics Adapter with S.A.C. Cooling from Elsa

Elsa, a well-known Japanese manufacturer of graphics solutions for PC systems, is going to release its own non-reference model of Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 adapter. Codenamed Elsa GeForce GTX 760 S.A.C., the card is based on an original PCB with PCI-e 3.0 x16 interface. The heart of the model is GK104-225 chip (an estimated performance equals to 2.3 GFLOPS), designed under 28 nm Kepler microarchitecture. It features 1152 CUDA cores, 32 ROPs, 96 TMUs, and runs at the nominal 980 MHz frequency (1033 MHz on overclocking).



Graphics card GTX 760 S.A.C. carries 2GB memory of GDDR5 type that is equipped with 256-bit bus and operates at 6008 MHz clock frequency (effective index). Power supply process is realized via two 6-pin sockets. It should be noted that this model is known to consume not more than 170 W power. The reverse side of PCB contains video interface panel with four outputs: DisplayPort, HDMI, Dual Link DVI-D, Dual Link DVI-I.


As it’s vivid from the codename, this …
