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).

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.

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.

Windows 10 smartphones will also run Android and iOS applications

Windows 10 smartphones will be able to run Android and iOS applications; this was announced by Terry Myerson, vice president of development of Microsoft operating systems.

These recurring rumors were quite the talk for years, even when it was known that Android and iOS razed over the mobile market and barely left Windows Phone with a share of 4 percent, which is ridiculous for Microsoft.
