Asus Showcases a Non-Trivial VN289QL Monitor

Asus has unveiled one more non-trivial proprietary creation: VN289QL monitor. The new-comer features 660x556x247 mm dimensions (with stand) and 28-inch VA panel. Despite a stylish design, the model offers a quite useful Eye Care option. It is called to dramatically reduce eye fatigue on prolonged working sessions, due to the enforcement of stable backlit functioning and decrease of blue light emissions.

Asus VN289QL supports Full HD resolution and features the whole range of specifications each hi-end monitor should have: 16:9 aspect ratio, 5 ms response time, high static and dynamic contract – 3000:1/80M:1 correspondingly, widest viewing angles – 178/178 degrees V/H, and highest brightness – 300 cd/m2. The assemblage of such non-trivial features provides for an unbelievable viewing experience thanks to high-quality imaging.

The monitor comes with a pair of 2W speakers and an enlarged set of external interfaces, including two audio ports, one DVI-D, one D-Sub, one …

Transcend SSD220S: Affordable TLC-Based Solid-State Drive

Transcend expands its lineup of SSDs with a new model – the SSD220S. It is based on 15-nm TLC memory chip available in 240 GB & 480 GB capacities. The model employs SATA 6 Gb/sec interface as well as DDR3 cache-memory. The drive is housed in a small-sized aluminum case (100x69.85x6.8 mm dimensions).

Transcend SSD220S boasts satisfactory Read/Write speed showings: sequential Read/Write data transfer activity – 550/450 Mb/sec, random – Read/Write data transfer activity (4K) – 80.000 IOPS. At the same time, Read/Write incompressible data transfer speed does not go beyond 330 Mb/sec. Moreover, these SSDs support all modern technologies, including Advanced Garbage Collection, SMART, TRIM, NCQ, and DevSleep.

To add, it’s always possible to upload SSD Scope software pack to further improve the performance. The drive is ready to operate in a wide range of temperatures (0-+70 degrees). The 240-gigabyte model costs 69 EUR, whereas its senior companion (480-gigabyte item) …

Nvidia Debuts with GeForce GTX 770 Graphics Adapter

Trailed by the flagship GeForce GTX 780 model, Nvidia officially launches one more high-performance graphics adapter of 700 series, codenamed GeForce GTX 770. Albeit the two products are rather similar in design (i.e. the incorporation of identical two-slot cooling system), their layout differs considerably. First of all, GTX 770 employs less efficient graphics core Nvidia GK104-425-A2 (28 nm) with 1536 CUDA cores, 128 TMUs, and 32 ROPs. At the same time this GPU operates at higher frequencies: 1046 MHz (nominal), 1085 MHz (dynamic).

Nvidia’s new entry comes either with 2 GB or 4 GB video memory modules of GDDR5 type. They employ 256-bit interface and ensure high bandwidth of 224 Gb/sec. Memory operational frequency is truly striking, demonstrating up to 1752 MHz (nominal) and up to 7010 MHz (dynamic) index. It should be noted that models with 4 GB modules will cost $50 more than those with 2 GB items (the recommended price makes up $399).

To continue, GeForce GTX 770 …
