New details about SSD-drives from MSI company

SSDs designed by MSI Company, which are based on the controller LSI SandForce SF-2200 will soon be announced officially. MSI company is known by producing of effective hardware components and laptop series, now they decide to show their abilities in developing new products: they are storages SSD series. Such decision by the company is not surprising, as it has certain knowledge and position on the computer market.

New SSD will have commercial codename Reflex Series and will be available in three options of 60, 120 and 240 GB.

According to preliminary information, the drives provide maximum read / write speed at 560/525 MB / s for the flagship 240GB, 550/515 MB / s for 120 GB and 525/495 MB / s for 60 GB. The claimed amount of IO with 4 KB data blocks (IOPS), respectively, will be 90,000, 90,000 and 85,000.

According to the high performance, the success of the debut SSD MSI Reflex will entirely dependent on the stability of the firmware, as SandForce (with 32nm NAND …

Asus Announces ROG Poseidon GTX 780 Adapter with DirectCU H2O

Asus has officially introduced a new add-on to the GTX 780 graphics cards series – the ROG Poseidon GTX 780 (codename: Poseidon-GTX780-P-3GD5). The new-comer is initially differentiated by the incorporation of a hybrid DirectCU H2O cooling system, as well as of prime-quality components. The heart of the model is Nvidia GK110 GPU with 2304 CUDA cores. It operates at 1006 MHz. the GPU is accompanied by 3 GB of GDDR5 memory (384-bit bus), running at 1502 MHz (6008 MHz – efficient).

Asus ROG Poseidon GTX 780 employs a qualitative printed circuit board that boasts 10-phase Digi+ VRM digital power subsystem. Reliability of operation is ascribed to Black metallic solid-state capacitors, ferrite chokes with Super Alloy Power support, and classy transistors. They take care of the card’s lifespan, which, according to some reports, is five times longer than rival models feature.

To continue, hybrid DirectCU H2O combines a traditional air cooler along with liquid cooling. The …

They Did It! Official Release of AMD Radeon HD 7990 ‘Malta’

Much rumored reference graphics adapter from AMD has been recently officially introduced. As it was suggested before, Radeon HD 7990, codenamed ‘Malta’, employs two Tahiti XT2 GPUs, each of which contains 128 TMUs, 32 rasterization blocks (ROPs), and 2048 current processors (GCN architecture). Smooth work of both graphics cores is synchronized by means of PLX PEX8747 controller that supports 48 lines of PCI Express 3.0. Nominal clock frequencies ascribed to GPUs operation equal to 950 MHz, but Turbo mode enables the increase of frequencies up to 1000 MHz.

Video memory is represented by GDDR5 memory modules, the overall capacity of which equals to 6 GB (3 GB per each graphics core). Memory modules utilize 384-bit bus and run at 6000 MHz frequency with bandwidth of 288 Gb/sec per core. The incorporated PCB accommodates a single CrossFireX socket for the creation of various graphics configurations, including Quad-CrossFireX. Video interface panel boasts the availability of …
