Overview of the Gigabyte GA-AB350-Gaming 3 Motherboard

At the announcement stage of new auxiliary components, AMD specialists emphasized the full readiness for overclocking the motherboards based on the B350 middle bridge, and not only for the top solution – X370. Its main simplification is the refusal to support NVIDIA SLI, that is, sixteen PCI-E processor lines cannot be divided equally. Also, the number of supported devices with SATA and USB interfaces is reduced.

In the field of the processor power regulator there is a decent radiator, a thorough approach to designing the device also allows to fully understand the possibilities of such products. At the same time, there are no additional controllers here, so this fact inevitably affects the price.

A distinctive feature of the gaming boards is the increased attention to the sound and network subsystems, as well as to backlighting. Given not the highest rank of the product, the audio codec here is not equipped with an auxiliary op-amp, and the cFosSpeed utility is the bonus …

Promising Speed Forecasts for AMD Radeon 8000 Sea Islands

AMD is continuing its work on the new GPU generation codenamed ‘Sea Islands’. The new series is prognosticated to be released in the coming winter. All the products with this GPU will be branded Radeon 8000. AMD manufacturers claim that their new graphic processing units will be 40% more efficient due to the implemented advanced technologies. There is not so much news about the future GPU architecture, although cardinal changes are barely possible.

Sea Islands chips will be equipped with 5.1 billion transistors as compared with the current 4.3 billion items applied in the products. This augmentation will facilitate the increment of efficiency. The chips will be developed according to the already tried-and-proven 28 nm technological requirements. The increase of transistors is not as large due to the adherence to the ascribed norms. It should be underlined that the implementation of the old technologies does not imply the considerable warming up of the chips; the developments …

Review of Network Drive IconBIT I-Stor IS308

Production of a new model is positioned as a replacement for modern routers with features of sharing USB-carriers. IS308 — the budget class — single-disk storage is a good device for visiting friends for movies, or for backup. In general, it is used for tasks which are not mission-critical of data loss. The speed and functionality are secondary, the main thing — the price and design. At a price of 90 $, IconBIT IS308 offers the buyer an autonomous Torrent-downloader, a network drive, support for protocols Samba and FTP, gigabit network interface and USB 3.0 port.

The device has stylish black aluminium hull and comes with a stand for vertical installation. IconBIT iS308 looks more like a normal external hard drive rather than the NAS. And if for someone Synology design seems too plastic, and QNAP — too angular, the iconBIT iS308 looks modern, simple and stylish.

The next thing that catches an eye — is the lack of a fan. Finally, there is a NAS with passive cooling. …
