XFX Teases Radeon HD 7990 Triple Dissipation Graphics Card

XFX has introduced its own version of Radeon HD 7990 — a top-tier graphics adapter from AMD. As distinct from the other companies that incorporated only some inconspicuous changes into their products, XFX has approached to the card’s modification with a violent zeal. As a result, today everyone has a chance of examining its Radeon HD 7990 Triple Dissipation card that employs two Tahiti XT GPUs, elaborated on Graphics Core next architecture.

Each Tahiti XT chip comes with 2048 stream processors and 3 GB of GDDR5 memory. This implies that the total memory capacity makes up 6 GB. GPUs run at 950 MHz clock frequency, but have the potential of achieving 1000 MHz frequency on overclocking. As for the memory, it employs 384-bit bus and runs at an efficient 6 GHz frequency.

To continue, all the components of Radeon HD 7990 Triple Dissipation are housed on an original PCB, designed by XFX. Connection with the PSU is realized via a pair of 8-contact power sockets. The rear …

Intel Unveils Power-Saving Silvermont Architecture

Intel has just unveiled its new advanced working out: power-saving and high-efficient microarchitecture codenamed Silvermont. According to Intel, this architecture is primarily targeting devices with low power consumption and can embrace a vast production segment, starting from smartphones and finishing with datacenters. Silvermont is ready to demonstrate a threefold increase of performance and fivefold decrease of power consumption (with preservation of erstwhile efficiency), if compared with the current generation of Intel Atom cores.

Intel Silvermont has been elaborated in compliance with the norms of 22 nm technological process with the implementation of 3-D Tri-Gate transistors. The employment of new progressive techniques promotes for enhancing the operation speed and reducing energy demand of products which use Silvermont as the basis. Multi-core architecture with the support of up to eight cores ensures higher bandwidth, lower latency and more efficient operation on …

Corsair to Release Hydro Series H5 SF Liquid Cooler

Taking into account the increasing number of cases when it’s impossible to install highly efficient air coolers on mini-ITX motherboards, Corsair has developed a universal low-profile liquid cooler. Entitled Hydro Series H5 SF, the unit shows compatibility with the majority of small-sized platforms for Intel LGA1366/115x and AMD FM1/FM2/AM2/AM3 sockets. Besides, this model is able to manage with up to 150 W of thermal power.

Corsair Hydro Series H5 SF is distinguished by an unusual framework. It employs dedicated props which hover the heatsink over the motherboard; thus, the system does not require additional space within the case. The base is made of polished copper.

The aluminum heatsink (167x40x57) is accompanied by a 120-mm fan that drags out hot air from heat-generating components. Its rotation speed varies from 1000 RPM to 1800 RPM, producing 12-24 CFM airflow. Still, the fan appears to be rather noisy with the peak levels of 36-42 dB.

Corsair bundles the …
