Cooler Master Showcases G-Series PSUs

Along with the launch of new PC chassis, Cooler Master is ready to release new G-series power supply units. The series is introduced by three models – G500, G600 and G700 – with 500W, 600W and 700W power, respectively. All of them correspond to ATX12V v2.3 standard, support Active PFC option and a range of protection tools (from short circuit, overvoltage, current overload, power overload). Moreover, these units employ a dual EMI-filter and take benefit from a single 120 mm fan with automatic speed control functions.

Cooler Master G-series PSUs have been felicitated with 80Plus Bronze certificate, due to their high efficiency (approximately 85%) and an estimated mean time between failures of 100.000 hours. The two junior models, G500 and G600, are able to operate at 456W and 576W load, correspondingly, on +12V rail. They are quipped with six SATA Power sockets and a pair of PCI Express Power 6+2-pin sockets. G500 unit will come to the market at the price of €60, while …

Gigabyte GA-F2A78M-D3H: Motherboard with Full Support for AMD Kaveri

Gigabyte has thoroughly prepared for the official launch of hybrid Kaveri APUs from AMD by designing a series of compatible motherboards, including a new micro-ATX GA-F2A78M-D3H model. The board is characterized by the availability of multiple interfaces and expansion slots, despite its modest dimensions (244x244 mm). It is based on AMD A78 chipset, supporting AMD A and Athlon II APUs (of Kaveri generation) for socket FM2+.

The motherboard offers four DIMM slots for the installation of DDR3-2400 MHz modules of up to 64 GB capacity (two-channel mode). It is able to house both, the modules supporting AMD Memory Profile and Intel Memory Profile profiles. Audio subsystem operates under the facilities of an integrated Realtek ALC887 codec; it ensures the production of 7.1-channel HD Audio sounding. Network powers are backed by gigabit Realtek RTL8111E controller.

To continue, the GA-F2A78M-D3H is equipped with four expansion slots, including PCI, PCIe 2.0 x16, PCIe 2.0 x1, and …

Sapphire Radeon RX 480 Nitro OC is Available for Preorder

Sapphire is about to launch the first modification of AMD’s graphics adapter – the Radeon RX 480. The new-comer, entitled Radeon RX 480 Nitro OC, is already available for preorder at the price tag of $322. The PCB, as well as the integrated cooling system, employs a modified design. The ‘OC’ postfix implies that the card has been overclocked to provide for a better performance.

Sapphire Radeon RX 480 Nitro OC comes equipped with AMD Polaris 10 GPU (14 nm, FinFet, GCN). It features 2304 stream processors, 32 ROPs & 144 TMUs. The presumptive GPU clock frequency might achieve 1350 MHz. At the same time, memory subsystem hasn’t been modified: 8 GB of GDDR5 are supposed to run at 2.0/8.0 GHz (base/dynamic) frequency.

The 2-slot cooling system employs a few heatpipes, a large aluminum heatsink, a stiffening plate at the reverse side, and a couple of 100-mm fans. The latter are able to operate in passive mode when GPU temperature is low. Moreover, the model boasts the …
