Intel to Take Care about Power-Efficiency of Ivy Bridge Processors

The rising competition between the two giants in the manufacture of processing units, Intel and AMD, makes each of the two invent ever newer technologies and implement them in their products. The attempts to dominate in the market and win as many consumers usually develop into brand new approaches and brand new advanced facilities.



In this light, Intel is going to upgrade its Ivy Bridge processors to make them more power-efficient. But power-efficiency does not imply that processing units will show less performance; quite the contrary, the manufacturer is willing to combine an utmost performance with the maximal power efficiency level.


Currently, the most power-saving processors of Ivy Bridge generation can be found in mobile devices on Windows platform and in Apple MacBook Air devices. Their TDP level is recorded at 17W. As appears from the above mentioned, the TDP level in upgraded Ivy Bridge processors will be lower than 17W, though the developers do not voice the margin …

Asus Launches Black-and-White Version of GTX 950 Adapter

Asus has added to its product line a graceful black-and-white videocard, based on GeForce GTX 950 adapter. The heart of the model is an overclocked GM206-250 GPU. Its key differentiation is the possibility to operate in two modes: Gaming – 1076/1188 MHz (base/dynamic) clock frequency & OC – 1102/1279 MHz (base/dynamic). The customer is free to switch between the profiles where relevant.



The GPU, featuring 768 CUDA cores, 32 ROPs and 48 TMUs, is paired with 2 GB of GDDR5 memory that runs at reference 6610 MHz frequency (128-bit rail). The interface panel consists of three video outputs: HDMI 2.0, DisplayPort and DVI-I.


The PCB boasts the implementation of Super Alloy Power II components as well as totally automatic hardware assembly line. The latter became possible thanks to Asus Auto-Extreme technology.


As far as cooling is concerned, Asus GeForce GTX 950 (codename: GTX950-OC-2GD5) is equipped with a two-slot cooler. Its framework embraces an aluminum heatsink …

Greeting Small-Sized HIS R9 270 iCooler Boost Clock 2GB GDDR5 Graphics Card

The middle-end lineup of HIS’ proprietary graphics cards has been refilled with a new small-sized model: the R9 270 iCooler Boost Clock 2GB GDDR5. It features 190x125x45 mm dimensions and maintains an etalon clock frequency template. Hence, its price won’t differ too much from the recommended one. The new-comer boasts a bright design with a blue PCB and light-blue fan blades. Despite the appurtenance to the middle-end segment, the card is able to demonstrate quite an appropriate performance.



As seen from the codename, HIS R9 270 iCooler Boost Clock 2GB GDDR5 is equipped with 2 GB of GDDR5 video memory. The latter employs 256-bit interface and runs at 1400 MHz (nominal)/5600 MHz (effective) frequency. The heart of the card is AMD Radeon R9 270 GPU (28 nm, Curacao Pro architecture) with 1280 stream processors, 80 TMUs, and 32 ROPs. Its basic clock frequency makes up 900 MHz, while on overclocking this index rises to 925 MHZ.
