Asus Launches Top-Notch ROG Matrix GTX 980 Ti Graphics Card

Asus is happy to introduce, upon its own statement, the most efficient graphics card based on Nvidia’s GTX 980 adapter. The ROG Matrix GTX 980 Ti is by 18.7% faster than all other reference analogues. Its advantage in some gaming applications achieves stunning 21.6%. Besides, the customers are able to further boost its performance due to ROG GPU Tweak II utility.

Asus ROG Matrix GTX 980 Ti employs an overclocked version of GM200-310 GPU. In OC gaming mode its clock frequencies make up 1216 MHz/1317 MHz (base/dynamic), whereas in Gaming mode these showings achieve 1190 MHz/1290 MHz margin. As far as memory is concerned, it’s introduced by GDDR5 modules (6 GB, 384-bit rail), running at 7200 MHz frequency.

Cooling is entrusted to DirectCU II cooler with direct touch technology and a pair of fans. The latter provide for the decrease of heat by 30% as well as triple cut of noise level, if compared with the reference cooler. Power is supplied via two 8-pin connectors.

Toshiba will increase the capacity of hard drives up to 600 terabytes

Toshiba is engaged in improving the existing hard drives in order to increase their capacity. Limited to several tens of terabytes, Japanese do not want to stop — they need at least 600 terabytes in a single 3.5-inch drive. To do this, Toshiba uses all the tools and opportunities, including temporary cooperation with companies, competitors, TDK, and Showa Denko KK.

The newly formed trio of producers focuses on the development of new technologies of recording information on magnetic media and improvement of existing methods. Alliance sees great prospective in the technology of the so-called «two-dimensional magnetic recording» (TDMR). It is experimental, but using, it is quite achievable to record density of 10 terabits per square inch, which thus gives the capacity of 600 terabytes in a single hard drive.

Of course, no one talks about the chances of such a capacious storage in the foreseeable future — Toshiba and its partners will have more than one year of research …
