The Release of AMD FX 8320 and FX 8300 Is Round the Corner

AMD is working intensely at the development of 8-core processors, the release of which is prognosticated for the 4th quarter of 2012. According to the preliminary data, AMD will release two models at once: FX 8320 and FX 8300. Such information could not but rejoice all customers using AMD FX processors on Bulldozer architecture, since the new CPUs are promised to be more efficient. The new processors will go with Vishera codename and will be built on the improved Piledriver architecture.

Similar to the flagship model AMD FX-8350, the two models will be designed on the basis of 32 nm micro architecture. They will support DDR3 memory with the frequency of 1866 MHz and will have 8Mb of L3 cache-memory. The two models will also support Socket AM3+ slot. Therefore, the major advantage of the new processor is that they will offer almost 20% more efficiency as compared to the current chips of FX series.

Nevertheless, the two CPUs, FX 8320 and FX 8300, will have certain …

Stylish CPU Cooler Ice Hammer IH-4800 Review

Cooling solutions under Ice Hammer brand enter the market not so frequently as wished it to be. Still, the company manages to gladden all potential customers with high-quality products. This time, in close cooperation with Thermalright, it launched IH-4800 CPU cooler that is a modified version of True Spirit 140 model. Yet, what kind of options are going to attract the audience? Let’s find it out.

Heatsink and Fan Framework

The employed by the IH-4800 heatsink features 155x55x170 mm dimensions. It is a typical single-section tower, accompanied by six U-shape heatpipes. The pipes did not get nickel-plated coating, so they have a highly polished copper design. The heatsink embraces fifty aluminum ribs with 2 mm distance from each other.

The ribs are connected with the pipes by means of a dedicated neck finish with a thorough soldering. Six lower ribs do not have contact with two heatpipes, since the latter got a strongly pronounced curve at the output. The heatsink …

Palit Announces an Overclocked GTX 760 JetStream Graphics Card

Palit has replenished its line of gaming graphics adapters with a new model, codenamed Palit GeForce GTX 760 JetStream. It is differentiated by an original design of the PCB, a highly-efficient JetStream cooling system, and a factory overclocking. Outstanding overclocking potential is secured by the implementation of high-quality components, such as DrMOS MOSFET transistors.

The new-comer employs PCI Express 3.0 x16 interface and is based on GK104 GPU (28 nm Kepler microarchitecture). The core consists of 1152 stream processors, 32 ROPs and 96 TMUs. It runs at an overclocked frequency of 1072 MHz, but on activating GPU Boost technology, this index rises to 1137 MHz high. Such showings exceed the reference parameters at about 10%.

To continue, this graphics card is equipped with 2 GB of GDDR5 memory type that runs also at heightened frequencies. Hence, the nominal clock frequency makes up 1550 MHz, while GPU Boost increases this index to 6200 MHz. Memory subsystem employs …
