MSI Launches Z87 MPower MAX AC Overclocking Motherboard

All PC enthusiasts and overclockers are now able to enjoy all the privileges of a wireless connection thanks to a new release from MSI. The company’s latest addition to Z87 motherboard series – the Z87 MPower MAX AC – might boast the incorporation of Intel Dual Band module that supports Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac and Bluetooth 4.0 connections. Moreover, due to the employment of two frequency bands (2.4/5 GHz), the speed of wireless data transfer achieves 867 Mb/sec.



It goes without saying that MSI Z87 MPower MAX AC is based on Intel Z87 Express chipset that supports Intel Haswell CPUs for socket LGA1150. All system components are soldered on a black-and-yellow 6-layer PCB; hardware base is implemented according to MSI Military Class 4 concept. Here, one may find Solid CAP capacitors, Dark Choke throttles, and DrMOS voltage regulators.


The PCB contains four DIMM slots for the installation of DDR3 memory modules (up to 16 GB) with the maximal clock frequency of 3000 MHz. …

The First Data about AMD Ryzen R7 1800X, R7 1700X and R7 1700 Cost Have Been Revealed

From day to day we obtain more and more info about AMD Ryzen processors and changes in company naming. Data on several Ryzen CPUs prices are already available online and should be treated with caution, because AMD specialties’ success depends on their cost-productivity correlation.



Thus, a new series flagship, R7 1800X, will cost 600 EUR. Its overfrequency will make 4 GHz. The basic frequency is likely to be 3.6 GHz. This model claims to provide competition for the Intel Core i7-6900K product from the Broadwell-E family, which is sold at 1,000 USD. CPU R7 1700X is expected to cost 470 EUR and deliver the 3.8 GHz enhanced frequency. It is worth more, than Core i7-7700K, which costs 350 USD, thus we can assume, its productivity level will be higher. However, CPU R7 1700 with 3.7 GHz overfrequency will be retailed at the price tag of 390 EUR and feature just 65 W TDP.


One should take into account, that the prices indicated are meant for Europe; in the USA CPUs may be …

PowerColor Outs an Overclocked Radeon R9 270 OC Graphics Card

Along with other AMD partners, PowerColor has elaborated its own version of Radeon R9 270 adapter. The PowerColor Radeon R9 270 OC is differentiated from rival products by an improved cooling system and factory overclocked frequencies. Its release is scheduled for late November and the retail price won’t hit over $180.



To begin with, this graphics card is naturally based on AMD Curacao Pro GPU, developed under 28 nm technological process. It consists of 1280 current processors, 32 ROPs and 64 TMUs. The core runs at 930 MHz frequency and is able to gain 955 MHz frequency on overclocking. The incorporation of GDDR5 memory (2 GB) with 256-bit bus interface ensures some striking bandwidth of 180 Gb/sec; this provides for the support of gaming applications with high resolution. Memory chip operates at 1400 MHz nominal frequency but might gain the index of 5600 MHz of effective frequency on overclocking.


Cooling system, implemented within Radeon R9 270 OC, cannot be called …
