Non-reference GTX 760 Graphics Adapter with S.A.C. Cooling from Elsa

Elsa, a well-known Japanese manufacturer of graphics solutions for PC systems, is going to release its own non-reference model of Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 adapter. Codenamed Elsa GeForce GTX 760 S.A.C., the card is based on an original PCB with PCI-e 3.0 x16 interface. The heart of the model is GK104-225 chip (an estimated performance equals to 2.3 GFLOPS), designed under 28 nm Kepler microarchitecture. It features 1152 CUDA cores, 32 ROPs, 96 TMUs, and runs at the nominal 980 MHz frequency (1033 MHz on overclocking).

Graphics card GTX 760 S.A.C. carries 2GB memory of GDDR5 type that is equipped with 256-bit bus and operates at 6008 MHz clock frequency (effective index). Power supply process is realized via two 6-pin sockets. It should be noted that this model is known to consume not more than 170 W power. The reverse side of PCB contains video interface panel with four outputs: DisplayPort, HDMI, Dual Link DVI-D, Dual Link DVI-I.

Chieftec Showcases Five New PSUs from Navitas Series

Chieftec, one of the largest German hardware manufacturers, has recently introduced a new series of power supply units, codenamed Navitas. The series is represented by 5 models: GPM-650C with 650W nominal power, GPM-750C with 750W nominal power, GPM-850C with 850W nominal power, GPM-1000C with 1000W nominal power, and GPM-1250C with 1250W nominal power correspondingly. All the products have won 80Plus Gold certificate, due to more than 90% efficiency in the high workloads.

Chieftec Navitas PSUs correspond to ATX12V v2.3 standard and support Intel Core 4th gen. processors that require little current strength on +12V rail in sleep mode. The models also support active power-factor correction option to provide for the maximal stability during operation. They are equipped with a composite cable system and a single +12V rail, estimated for the maximal current from 54 A to 104 A (this index depends on the unit’s power).

All five units are cooled down by 140 mm fans with PWM …

Crucial Teases New TLC-Based BX200 Solid-State Drive

Crucial has found a way to consolidate the needs of budget- and efficiency-oriented customer groups. Therefore, it developed a new series of SSDs, based on TLC memory. The BX200 2.5-inch drives (7 mm case depth) come equipped with 16-nm chips by Micron as well as Silicon Motion SM2256 controller. All the models share SATA III 6 Gb/sec interface and are compatible with Crucial Storage Executive & Acronis True Image HD utilities.

Crucial BX200 are available in three capacity versions: 240 GB, 480 GB and 960 GB. Their maximal sequential Read/Write speed makes up 540/490 Mb/sec, whereas the maximal random Read/Write index achieves 66.000 & 78.000 IOPS correspondingly. As far as one can see, there is no visible decrease in performance, if compared with MLC memory showings.

The new-comers are estimated for 72 TB of data lifespan; this equals to 40 GB of daily loading over a span of 5 years (MTBF – 1.500.000 hours). In order to provide for the utmost reliability, Crucial adds a …
