NVIDIA GTX 990M, great graphics power for laptops

The GTX 990M will be the next NVIDIA graphics flagship model for laptops and according to initial reports, it will be faster than the GTX 980M in SLI and many graphics for desktop computers.

Almost a year ago, NVIDIA announced the GTX 9XXM series. In October of last year, the 980M and 970M were released and in March of this year the rest of a series (GTX 960M and GTX 950M) which now aims to be boosted by this GTX 990M.

This is a development based on the Maxwell GM204 core that will increase its CUDA cores up to 2048. There’s no more info on the core frequency and the memory, but rather its consumption in TDP will be of 100-185 watts.

The new AMD A8-7670K APU is here

On May, AMD slightly renewed its high-end APUs launching the new A10-7870K chip with an operating speed faster than their previous flagship, the A10-7850K. Now there comes a new chip, but on this occasion it’s aimed to improve the A8-7650K with higher operating speeds, both in CPU and the GPU.

AMD A8-7670K

AMD A8-7670K is a 10-core chip, with 4-cores in the CPU and 6-cores the GPU. The improvements are found in the speed at which they work, if on the 7650K we had the CPU running at 3.3 GHz and 3.8 GHz with turbo, the new model increases the speed to 3.6 GHz and 3.9 GHz, respectively.

EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Ti Classified ACX 2.0+

EVGA announced its new graphics card, the EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Ti Classified ACX 2.0+, the third most powerful GeForce GTX 980 Ti, just under the GTX 980 Ti Classified K|np|ng and the GTX 980 Ti Hybrid.

So we are thus faced with a 28nm manufactured GPU GM200-310-A1 which consists of 2816 CUDA cores, 176 TMUs and 96 ROPS at a base/turbo frequency of 1190/1291 MHZ (vs. 1000/1076 MHz mod .ref) with 6 GB of memory at 7000 MHz (reference speed) along with a 384 memory interface. The GPU comes alive through a 14 + 3 phase VRM powered by 2 8-pin PCI Express connectors, meaning this a model focused on an aggressive overclock.

Nvidia almost has its GTX 950 Ti graphic card ready

Maybe AMD is not giving Nvidia much of a war, but that doesn’t mean that the guys at Santa Clara can rest on their laurels. That’s why they are preparing the GTX 950 Ti as a substitute of the old GTX 750 and 750 Ti that have been among us for over a year and a half now.

The new chip included has the GM206-250 denomination, a new GM206-300 version of the GTX 960, and being of the same GTX series (not the GT) should give it a good performance at 1080p games, but at a more affordable price than the GTX 960 (which can be now found in some models for less than 200 dollars).

Toshiba high-end laptops are not far behind with the new Satellite S

4K screens, Broadwell dedicated graphics and Intel quad-core processors are some of the specifications that we see in these machines.

The high-end line also deserved a place in all the presentations that Toshiba has made today, and that gap has been covered by the Satellite S series, a line of laptops with screens that can reach 3840 x 2160 pixels (UltraHD) in the most exclusive models, or 1080p and 1600 x 900 on the most basic ones. There will be the option to enjoy a touch panel.

Inno3D GeForce GTX 980 Ti iChill X4 Ultra

Inno3D announced its high-end graphics card based on the GeForce GTX 980 Ti, we are talking about the Inno3D GeForce GTX 980 Ti iChill X4 Ultra, in which we see that the VRM area is cooled by a black aluminum heat sink positioned in the upper part, as the aluminum radiator is crossed by several cooled copper heat pipes through three 100 mm fans on the top frame (though the picture doesn’t show it), and we found also another 60 mm fan that will help reduce the temperature of the backplate, which in turn influences the temperature of the memory chips and the VRM.

Inno3D GeForce GTX 980 Ti

The Inno3D GeForce GTX 980 Ti iChill Ultra X4 is based on the GM200-310-A1 GPU formed by 2816 CUDA Cores, 176 TMUs and 96 ROPS at a base/turbo frequency of 1152/1241 MHz (vs 1000/1076 MHz mod Ref) with 6 GB of memory at 7200 MHz (vs 7000 MHz) along with a memory interface of 384 bits. The GPU comes alive through an 8-phase VRM powered by two PCI-Express connectors of 8 + 6 pins.

GIGABYTE presents their new line of base FM2+ motherboards

AMD keeps betting hard to improve the presence of its APUs in the general consumer market, offering increasingly powerful solutions at attractive prices and with the support of major manufacturers like GIGABYTE, which has introduced a new range FM2 + base plates.

Within this new range the G1.Sniper A88X and F2A88X-UP4 models are especially highlighted, equipped with the UltraDurable design of the latest generation, which are a guarantee of solidity and a reliability beyond doubt.

You must also bear in mind that both use the A88X chipset, a top range model within the AMD FM2+ platform, which ensures latest generation support of the company’s APUs and the possibility of mounting even dual GPU configurations.

To this you must add AMD FreeSync support, which prevents the annoying “tearing” effect to occur, and Dual Graphics, which allows you to leverage the GPU which integrates the APU and use it in tandem with your dedicated graphics.

We remind you that the new APUs of high range and upper-middle range of AMD come with an integrated GPU that sums 512 shaders, so they can run a lot of current games in medium-high quality without problems, obviously depending on the requirements of each one and the required resolution, so they are an excellent choice to assemble a computer to play with for little money.

AMD renews its APUs with the A10-7870K processor

AMD is showing signs of life after a long season in which they didn’t present anything new of significance. Since they still haven’t released the new R9 390 Series graphics cards (and not the refurbished ones presented as the 200 Series), the new APU A10-7870K is a breeze of fresh air. This is actually an update of A10-7850K, with some slight improvements, but it’s still the Kaveri architecture with Steamroller cores.

When it comes to the processor, the cores work from 3.9 GHz to 4.1 GHz turbo speeds. The GPU now has a speed of 866 MHz (an improvement over 720 MHz), it supports DirectX 12 and keeps the rest of the features (512 processing units, 32 texture units and 8 rendering units). It may be a noticeable speed improvement over the A10-7850K, since its costs is now from $137.

Zotac shows the GTX Titan X, with liquid cooling and three fans

Except for some EVGA specific models, until now we had not seen any GTX TITAN X with dissipation design different from the NVIDIA reference model, that’s why we are surprised by the announcement of the new and impressive ZOTAC GTX TITAN X Artic Storm.

This is a triple fan ventilation system version of the TITAN X which should already keep the GPU cool, but if that’s not enough and we want even more cooling, it includes its own integrated water block in order to connect to a liquid cooling circui.t By uniting all in one same board, it is understood that it’s thickness will be triple slot. In return, we will get 1026 MHz base speeds. 1114 MHz with Boost and 7 GHz for the memory.

It is still a render and we haven’t seen the final model yet, but we’ll see if th company brings this model to the Computex so we can see it in all its glory.
