ECS NM70-I Motherboard: Pioneer in Its Class

ECS decided to tackle the problem of sameness, developing a new motherboard on the basis of Intel NM70 Express chips. The implementation exactly of these chips makes the board a pioneer in its product class. ECS NM70-I is designed in mini-ITX form factor and houses Intel Celeron 847/807 CPU. The latter consumes only 17W of power to add the board power-efficient properties. Such approach to layout secures a harmonious balance between performance parameters and price ranges, and is an ideal match for compact PC systems.

Irrespective of the initial motherboard's compact dimensions, the manufacturer stipulated expansion opportunities if the user finds such a need in future employment. The availability of 1x PCI Express slot x16, SATA 3Gb/sec and 6Gb/sec sockets promote for the unimpeded upgrade of video system and data storage devices. ECS NM70-I facilities allow the customer to play back high-contrast HD and Blue-Ray multimedia content. Moreover, ECS equips its board with two …

Asus to Start Shipping Radeon R9 290 DirectCU II OC Graphics Card

Next week Asus is going to start shipping its newest graphics card from Radeon R9 series. Codenamed Radeon R9 290 DirectCU II OC, it is based on an original PCB with black-and-red design and the incorporation of an exclusive DirectCU II cooling system. Plus, the availability of ‘OC’ in the codename implies the availability of factory overclocking.

Asus Radeon R9 290 DirectCU II OC takes GCN Hawaii core with 2816 stream processors as the basis. It operates at an overclocked 1000 MHz frequency. The model is equipped with 4 GB of GDDR5 memory (512-bit bus) that runs at an effective 5400 MHz frequency. Just for a comparison, etalon adapter from AMD runs at 947 MHz/ 5000 MHz for GPU/memory correspondingly.

DirectCU II cooler consists of a heatsink, four copper nickel-plated heatpipes (two of them feature 10 mm dimensions), and two high-performance fans: one ordinary and one CoolTech. The card receives power via 6+8-pin connectors and might require not less than 600 W PSU.

Nvidia Debuts with GeForce GTX 770 Graphics Adapter

Trailed by the flagship GeForce GTX 780 model, Nvidia officially launches one more high-performance graphics adapter of 700 series, codenamed GeForce GTX 770. Albeit the two products are rather similar in design (i.e. the incorporation of identical two-slot cooling system), their layout differs considerably. First of all, GTX 770 employs less efficient graphics core Nvidia GK104-425-A2 (28 nm) with 1536 CUDA cores, 128 TMUs, and 32 ROPs. At the same time this GPU operates at higher frequencies: 1046 MHz (nominal), 1085 MHz (dynamic).

Nvidia’s new entry comes either with 2 GB or 4 GB video memory modules of GDDR5 type. They employ 256-bit interface and ensure high bandwidth of 224 Gb/sec. Memory operational frequency is truly striking, demonstrating up to 1752 MHz (nominal) and up to 7010 MHz (dynamic) index. It should be noted that models with 4 GB modules will cost $50 more than those with 2 GB items (the recommended price makes up $399).

To continue, GeForce GTX 770 …

DevID : : Processors

The processor is a key component of PC hardware, laptop, mobile devices, virtual machines, network storage, and programmable logic controller. He is responsible for the performance of the whole system and relationship between its various components in particular.

The efficiency of the processor depends on the rules of the production technological process, micro-architecture, CPU frequency, power consumption and performance of computational kernels. On the effectiveness of the first two parameters to influence in any way it is impossible, but to optimize the performance of the rest is possible if you download drivers for processors and to perform fine adjustment of each function.

Today, like many years ago - a struggle for the consumer, there are two giant manufacturer of processors: Intel and AMD. These two companies regularly delight consumers of different levels (beginner, professional level, enthusiasts, testers) more powerful models with more impressive performance. Despite the emergence of new technologies and successful implementation of new features for the optimal operation of the processor is sufficient to configure the following settings (often through a graphical interface, for example, BIOS/UEFI BIOS):

  • the system bus frequency (CPU Clock). To overclock the CPU up to a certain level of performance, you can automatically or manually configure the value of the clock frequency of the system bus;
  • the core voltage/CPU cores. The core voltage when operating at rated speed is usually between 1.5-1.75 V. For the purposes of overclocking, the voltage should increase (limit – up to 1.85 V);
  • a cache memory. Any modern CPU is equipped with a high-speed cache memory. Its main task is to store frequently used data and instructions without delay to provide access to them. For optimizing the operation of the cache memory answer specific drivers processors;
  • energy consumption. Almost all the latest processors are equipped with energy-saving mechanisms, as well as protective functions. The first designed to minimize the energy consumption under different degrees of load on the CPU, and the second designed to protect the chip from overheating at higher voltages/frequencies by turning off the units at maximum load or simple;
  • bug fixes by updating the graphic shell - the BIOS Update. This setting involves the transfer of software microcode from the BIOS to the CPU in case of detecting errors in the CPU. Usually the errors detected by the developers themselves and the purpose of their elimination are issued the updated firmware interface.
