Motherboard Gigabyte GA-F2A85X-UP4 Review

The second generation of AMD A-Series hybrid processors, announced earlier in October, are already integrated in a number of graphics solutions. The newly appeared products are compatible with Socket FM2 only and cannot be applied for Socket FM1 infrastructure. This implies that a number of motherboards lose their upgrade facilities and can't be updated with a new advanced solution. Still, the market is currently ready to present a few boards destined to operate with the updated AMD A-Series. Gigabyte is one of the pioneers in this respect, introducing its motherboard GA-F2A85X-UP4, developed specifically for Socket FM2.



Integration


Gigabyte GA-F2A85X-UP4 is designed in ATX form-factor with 305x244 mm PCB dimensions. AMD A85X chipset is a heart of the motherboard; it secures the compatibility with A-Series (second gen.) APU and Athlon CPUs in the implementation of Socket FM2. The overall TDP level claimed for the model is not more than 100W. The PCB allots four DIMM slots …

The Intel Company Is Going to Give a Roland for an Oliver to AMD Ryzen

A short while ago the French Canard PC Hardware magazine has reported, that Intel is going to give fitting reply to AMD Ryzen pilot projects and plans to release two new Kaby Lake-S CPUs.



The first processor is expected to be launched under the Intel Core i7-7740K codename. It will get four compute cores with Hyper-Threading support, 8 MB of tertiary memory cache, unlocked multiplier and the 100 W basic TDP rate. Operating frequencies will lie in the range of 4.3–4.6 GHz in the Turbo Boost mode.


The second specialty is Core i5-7640K with four cores and 4–4.4 frequency of operation. It also features 6 MB of L3 cache, 100 W TDP and the support of Hyper-Threading technology, though we can’t be sure as for the last-named specification. One should admit, that heretofore only the Intel Core i7 line offered multithreading in its 4-core desktop processors.

Philips 276E8FJAB Is a Multi-Purpose Domestic Device Featuring an Enhanced Colour Rendering

The latterly introduced Philips 276E8FJAB monitor is expected to be a multi-purpose device for domestic utilizing. An IPS panel lets this model render 132% of the sRGB palette and 114% of the NTSC colour gamut.



The 27-inch screen features the 2560 х 1440 pixels resolution, 178° viewing angles, the 1000:1 static contrast ratio and the 60 Hz refresh rate. W-LED backlighting ensures the 350 cd/m² brightness. Its modulation frequency is high enough to tire eyes as less as possible. The Flicker-free technology is an extra bonus. SmartContrast and SmartImage Lite functions allow users to modify colour options on a real time basis. The grey-to-grey response time is 4 ms.


Slim edges of the elegant Philips 276E8FJAB are glass covered; and the monitor stand offers an opportunity to adjust tilt. Other specs include VGA, DisplayPort 1.2 or HDMI 1.4 ports and 6 W stereo speakers.


The Philips 276E8FJAB display will come to sale in May 2017 at the ₴11 169 ($414) price.
