Sapphire Unveils Small-Sized R9 285 2GB GDDR5 ITX Compact Edition Graphics Cards

Optimized energy efficiency offered by AMD Radeon R9 285 graphics adapters has become a key factor for Sapphire to elaborate a pair of original proprietary versions. The new-comers, codenamed R9 285 2GB GDDR5 ITX Compact Edition, are targeting mini-ITX systems with huge performance ambitions. The pair traditionally involves a standard model with etalon specifications and OC model with a factory overclocking.

Both graphics cards employ a small-sized two-slot cooler that consists of a compact heatsink, four copper heatpipes, and a single fan of 100 mm dimensional type. Connection with PC monitors and other visual solutions is realized by means of HDMI, DVI-I, and a couple of mini-DisplayPorts. Additionally, the models feature dual BIOS chips (standard and UEFI) which might be switched with the help of a dedicated key on the case.

To continue, Sapphire R9 285 2GB GDDR5 ITX Compact Edition and OC Edition are based on AMT Tonga GPU (28 nm, GCN) with 1792 stream processors, 112 …

Asus Teases Turbo GeForce GTX 1080 Videocard

Asus has just introduced Turbo GeForce GTX 1080 videocard with etalon frequencies & a modified cooler. The model is developed on Nvidia GP104-400 GPU (2560 CUDA, 160 TMUs, 64 ROPs) that operates at 1607/1733 MHz frequency. The integrated GDDR5 memory (8 GB, 256-bit interface, 320 Gb/sec bandwidth) runs at 10 GHz frequency.

The card is coated in a dark-gray cover with logo illumination. The PCB is designed with the help of Auto-Extreme technology as well as Super Alloy Power II hardware. The other peculiar feature is a totally revamped cooling system. As distinct from the etalon model, the Turbo version employs a single fan, based on dual ball-bearings, which pushes hot air away from the GPU.

The greenhorn comes equipped with a pair of HDMI ports for the connection of various devices, including VR-helmets. There are also DVI-D and DisplayPort 1.4 ports. The PCB features a single 8-pin power connector. Asus Turbo GeForce GTX 1080 supports GPU Tweak II & Xsplit Gamecaster …

Adata Introduces New Premier-Pro SP310 Solid-State Drives Series

Adata has recently introduced a new series of solid-state drives, entitled Premier-Pro SP310. The series consists of 32 GB, 64 GB and 128 GB models that are developed in mSATA form-factor. The drives feature 50.95x30x4 mm dimensions and are intended to be used as a speedy cache-memory or boot partition in OS for desktop and mobile devices.

Premier-Pro SP310 SSDs employ SATA 6 Gb/sec interface and are based on JMicron JFM-667 controller. The latter ensures that the drives could achieve the highest performance with the outstanding data transfer speeds. Therefore, the maximal sequential Read speed makes up 410 MB/sec, whereas the maximal sequential Write speed – 180 MB/sec. In its turn, the maximal random Read/Write speed reaches up 45.000 IOPS. Such showings are able to guarantee a substantial increase in system response speed.

To continue, the new-comers from Adata support all updated technologies, including NCQ, TRIM and S.M.A.R.T. They enhance the possibilities of the …
