Galax Unleashes GeForce GTX 970 and 980 HOF Graphics Cards

Galax, the company created due to a merger of Galaxy and KFA2, entered the market with a couple of new graphics solutions: the GeForce GTX 970 HOF and the GeForce GTX980 HOF cards. Both greenhorns are intended for enthusiasts longing for the best overclocking potential. Thus, they offer dual BIOS support for safe modification of key parameters and a pair of advanced utilities: Hyper Boost and Voltage Tool.

Galax GeForce GTX 970 HOF and 980 HOF models are powered by Nvidia GM204 GPU (Maxwell generation) with a striking factory overclocking index. Therewith, GTX 970 HOF runs at 1216 MHz (nominal) and 1380 MHz (dynamic) frequencies instead of etalon 1051 MHz/1178 MHz ones. In its turn, GTX 980 HOF operates at 1304 MHz (nominal) and 1418 MHz (dynamic) frequencies instead of reference 1126 MHz/1216 MHz ones. Moreover, the manufacturer swears that this couple is able to overclock up to 1.5 GHz frequency on air cooling and up to 2.1 GHz frequency on liquid cooling.

ASRock Unleashes Hyper OC Series of Overclocking-Oriented Mainboards

ASRock is thought to be an innovator in the development of hardware know-hows. The Computex 2016 came as no exclusion: the company introduced a lineup of overclocked mainboards which joined Hyper OC series. Initially, the lineup consisted of three models – H170 Pro4/Hyper, B150M Pro4/Hyper & H110M-DS/Hyper; further on, it will be replenished by three other models – Fatal1ty H170 Performance/Hyper, Fatal1ty B150 Gaming K4/Hyper & B150A-X1/Hyper.

As seen from the codenames, the motherboards are based on Intel B150, H170 and H110 chipsets which employ ASRock Hyper BCLK Engine controller; it overclocks Intel Skylake CPUs by means of BCLK alteration, without dislocating other components. The new-comers support the installation of superfast DDR4 RAM, graphics cards with PCI-e 3.0 x16 interfaces as well as voluminous drives (including Ultra M.2).

ASRock H170 Pro4/Hyper features the following specifications:

— chipset: Intel H170;

— memory: 4x DDR4;

— storage: …

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 …
