MSI Unveils GTX 1050 & GTX 1050 Ti Lineups of Video Cards

MSI has taken its fans by surprise by introducing two lineups of video cards simultaneously. The lines (which embrace 10 models in total) are based on Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 1050 & GeForce GTX 1050 Ti adapters. The new-comers feature either one or two fans and differ by the operational performance as well as functional. It stands to reason that the company has enlarged its Gaming series with 4 new products.

One-fan video cards are distinguished by the implementation of Military Class 4 hardware base, whereas the two-fan versions boast the incorporation of MSI Twin Frozr VI cooling system (TORX 2.0 fans), three operational profiles and overclocking features.

The MSI GeForce GTX 1050 series is introduced by the following models (Nvidia GP107-300 GPU, Pascal, 640 CUDA, 2GB GDDR5, 128-bit bus, DVI-D, HDMI 2.0b, DisplayPort 1.4):

— MSI GeForce GTX 1050 2G: base GPU frequency – 1354 MHz, dynamic GPU frequency – 1455 MHz, efficient memory frequency – 7.0 GHz;

Zotac to Release a Small-Sized but Efficient Graphics Card GTX 650 Ti

Despite the variety of high-end graphics solutions in the market, not all customers, especially gamers, have possibilities of buying rather costly items in order to assemble a powerful gaming system. In this light, Zotac decided to comply with its customers’ budget by introducing a small-sized but efficient model – GeForce GTX 650 Ti (codename: ZT-61102-10H). Unlike the reference adapter with 1 GB memory, this solution stipulates the incorporation of 2 GB memory. This brings the new-comer to the higher level in graphics segment.

Graphics card Zotac GeForce GTX 650 Ti is based on Nvidia GK106 GPU, developed under 28 nm technological process. It features 769 CUDA cores and runs at factory-overclocked frequencies: the nominal frequency has been increased from 928 MHz to 941 MHz. The GPU is accompanied by GDDR5 memory modules that feature 128-bit interface. Memory runs at 1350 MHz in nominal mode but is able to enhance its potential to the effective 5400 MHz frequency.

Promising Speed Forecasts for AMD Radeon 8000 Sea Islands

AMD is continuing its work on the new GPU generation codenamed ‘Sea Islands’. The new series is prognosticated to be released in the coming winter. All the products with this GPU will be branded Radeon 8000. AMD manufacturers claim that their new graphic processing units will be 40% more efficient due to the implemented advanced technologies. There is not so much news about the future GPU architecture, although cardinal changes are barely possible.

Sea Islands chips will be equipped with 5.1 billion transistors as compared with the current 4.3 billion items applied in the products. This augmentation will facilitate the increment of efficiency. The chips will be developed according to the already tried-and-proven 28 nm technological requirements. The increase of transistors is not as large due to the adherence to the ascribed norms. It should be underlined that the implementation of the old technologies does not imply the considerable warming up of the chips; the developments …
