DAS Promise Pegasus R4 Review

Data storage units have become an integral part of PC hardware in recent years. Such conjuncture is simply explained by the rising necessity to store huge amounts of information and transfer the data to various devices. NAS and DAS units have been developed with the intention to solve all storage problems, however, the efficiency of their work is much dependent on the interfaces they use for data transfer. USB 2.0 interfaces are unable to cope with voluminous info; the prevalent now USB 3.0 and eSATA interfaces are efficient only for a single winchester. But when it comes to the management of really huge data blocks, there appears a need for a more advanced solution. Promise Technology dares to solve all vital issues by releasing DAS Pegasus R4 with Thunderbolt interface which is notable for the high and stable data transfer speed with the retention of compatibility.

A 2-Fan Cooler GeForce GTX 1050 WINDFORCE 2G Graphics Card From GIGABYTE

The GIGABYTE company has officially introduced a new graphics card, named GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1050 WINDFORCE 2G (GV-N1050WF2-2GD). It possesses such peculiarities as refined PC-board design and a modified cooling system.



GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1050 WINDFORCE 2G is based on a 14 nm NVIDIA GP107-300 GPU, supporting 640 CUDA, 40 TMU and 32 ROP. This video card can operate in one of pre-set modes – “Gaming” or “OC”. Its frequency formula goes in accord with the benchmark of 1354 / 1455 MHz in the first case and 1379 / 1493 MHz in the second. At the same time 2 GB of GDDR5 memory work at the reference effective frequency of 7008 MHz.


The PC-board is improved due to the Ultra Durable VGA company concept and an enhanced 4+1-phase power subsystem construction with one 6-pin PCIe connector. The power supply subsystem design features one copper composite heat pipe, an aluminum heat sink, a stiffening plate on the reverse side and a pair of axial fans. At low load the cooler …

Colorful Amazes the Public by a One-Slot iGame Graphics Card

Colorful, a Chinese developer of graphics solutions, unveils some details about its new graphics card, codenamed iGame GTX 650 Ti Buri-Slim. The most peculiar thing about this card is that it takes only one slot within a PC case, if compared with similar models from other manufacturers. The model's design resembles the one implemented in a 2011 release (iGame GTS 450 Buri-Slim).



Colorful iGame GTX 650 Ti Buri-Slim is based on a non-reference printed circuit board; the latter is a bit longer than reference GTX 650 Ti. Hardware base deserves special attention, since it's been given a note of originality, despite being a part of the entry-level adapter. Instead of traditional solid-state capacitors Colorful implemented POSCAP capacitors. Power subsystem is organized according to 3+1 template; it employs high-efficiency transistors designed by ON Semiconductor.


The integrated graphics chip and memory modules of GDDR5 standard operate at 928 MHz and 5400 MHz correspondingly. …
