Gigabyte Shows Off a Bespoke GTX 970 Graphics Card

Gigabyte has intrigued its fans by the design of an unusual videocard – the GeForce GTX 970 (GV-N970TTOC-4GD). It is based on Nvidia GM-204-200-A1 GPU (Maxwell) but with overclocked frequencies. The core operates at 1101 MHz/1241 MHz instead of etalon 1050 MHz/1178 MHz. The GPU is accompanied with 4 GB of GDDR5 memory (256-bit bus) that runs at 7010 MHz efficient clock frequency.



Gigabyte GeForce GTX 970 is distinguished by the implementation of Twin Turbo Fan cooling system. It consists of three copper heatpipes with direct touch technology, an aluminum heatsink, and a radial-flow fan; the latter grasps air from both sides of the adapter due to the shortened PCB design.


As a result, the airflow increases by 24%, whereas the cooling effect enhances by 29%. Thanks to this, the card is thought to be an optimal solution for Nvidia SLI configurations.


It should be noted that this graphics card boasts a high-quality hardware base – Ultra Durable VGA. A set of external …

Plextor Prepares the Release of M5P SSD

Plextor is currently preparing a new SSD series, codenamed M5P. According to the forecasts, this series will be differentiated by high-performance characteristics and Serial ATA 3.0 interface. M5P will be represented by three models of 128 GB, 256 GB and 512 GB volume capacities. All the model lines are developed with the utilization of 19 nm technological process. In addition, all SSDs will be equipped with NAND flash-memory (MLC Toshiba) and Marvell 88SS9187 controllers.



Three models differ from one another by the flash-memory volume. Thereby, 128 GB models accommodates 256 MB of DDR3 cache-memory, 256 GB model – 512 MB, and the last one, 512 GB model – 768 MB. Those SSDs support SATA 6 Gb/sec.


The manufacturer claim that the maximal consecutive reading and writing speeds will achieve 540 Mb/sec and 340 Mb/sec correspondingly (with 128 GB model); 256 GB and 512 GB models will achieve 540 Mb/sec in reading and 450 Mb/sec in writing mode. At the same time, M5P series …
