Graphics Card Asus GTX660-DC2T-2GD5

Approaching the Upper Class

Asus GTX660 graphics card-DC2T-2GD5 comes with a specification that is faster than the reference. Asus set a speed accelerator graphics card Nvidia GK106 based graphics core is at 1072MHz. Speed ​​is higher than the reference GeForce GTX 660 has a 980MHz speed accelerator. Not only that, the speed of the accelerator can still u7-435-1137MHz Asusmeningkat longer automatically when needed. In addition, the speed of local memory is also pegged slightly higher, at 3050MHz (6100MHz effective) than the reference 3000MHz (6000 MHz effective). Unfortunately, while trying to overclock, he refused. It seems, the default value used is the maximum value.

In terms of design, graphics card with 960 CUDA cores and 2GB of memory GDDR5 192bit local has a design that resembles the Asus graphics cards in general. Him, Asus DirectCU cooler pair which is typical Asus cooler. Overall the Asus GTX660-DC2T-2GD5 have a pretty long card size. Therefore, make sure your case has enough space. DirectCU cooling that is used is quite stocky with two large fans and also comes with a copper heatpipe to help remove heat. However, this is quite slim DirectCU cooling that makes the graphics card is not too thick. Asus device is “only” requires two slots in your chassis

Oh yes, the GeForce GTX 660 graphics card is theoretically requires about 140W, therefore, at the end there is a power port PCI-Express 6pin to meet its needs. Also make sure you use a power supply that has enough power.

Regarding the output options, Asus GTX660-DC2T-2GD5 provides output options that are complete: two DVI, one HDMI, and one DisplayPort. For those of you who want to use dual graphics card configuration, it also supports SLI.

About its performance, the Asus graphics card performance is quite good for the middle class. Its performance is very adequate for running a variety of the latest 3D games at high resolution with high detail anyway. In fact, its performance can approach the graphics card that was in it, such as the AMD Radeon HD 7870 and Radeon HD 7950. DirectCU cooling that uses the performance was quite good for being able to keep the temperature remained normal without producing noise.

Asus GTX660-DC2T-2GD5 is a middle class graphics card that can deliver performance-class graphics card like a top. The price is quite high, but it is balanced with a price performance that is able to produce.

Intel will offer ‘Broadwell’ SOC to battle Calxeda, AMD

Intel will offer ‘Broadwell’ SOC to battle Calxeda, AMD

Intel has updated its road map with a new, low-power server chip to help it ward off competition from Calxeda and other makers of low-power chips.

The new chip will be based on Broadwell, a microarchitecture to be introduced next year as the successor to Intel’s Haswell design. But this processor will be a system-on-chip, setting it apart from Intel’s other Xeon server products.

SOCs combine several components onto a single chip to reduce power consumption and space requirements. In the server market, they’re often used in micro-servers, a type of low-power server used for large-scale, online workloads.

Intel already offers SOCs in its Atom family of chips, but Atom has its own microarchitecture. The new chip announced Monday will be Intel’s first SOC that uses the same microarchitecture as its more powerful Xeon chips.

“With this new product, we’ll be delivering the best of both worlds: high performance and high density,” said Diane Bryant, general manager of Intel’s data center and connected systems group, at an Intel event in San Francisco.

She didn’t give a name for the new chip but said it will ship next year. It will be manufactured on a 14-nanometer process and include integrated I/O, networking, and application accelerators, Bryant said.

The chip essentially allows Intel to straddle the gap between its current Atom processors, which focus on low power consumption, and its Xeon processors, which are tuned for higher performance but use more electricity.

“They’re trying to cover the whole market. They’ve decided it’s better to have a little bit of overlap than to have any gaps,” said industry analyst Nathan Brookwood of Insight64.

The chip comes at a time of heightened competition in the server market. Rivals such as Calxeda and Advanced Micro Devices are building low-power SOCs using designs from UK chip architecture company ARM, and the new chip from Intel is its latest response to that trend.

Intel didn’t say on Monday if the new chip will be branded as a Xeon or an Atom. Its place between the two product lines could create some confusion for customers, Brookwood said, though he thinks Intel will eventually decide on Xeon.

It’s not the only chip Intel has for low-power servers. The company recently began shipping a Xeon E3 processor based on the Haswell core, and versions of that chip based on Broadwell are expected next year. They will be “general-purpose” Xeons, as opposed to SOCs specifically for low-power, high-density systems.

In its Atom family, Intel will begin shipping a new chip later this year code-named Avoton, based on a new chip core known as Silvermont. Compared with the current Atom core, Avoton will offer “a 3x improvement in power at the same performance level, or a 5x increase in performance at the same power,” according to Bryant.

Radeon HD 8970M Mobile Graphics Chip Fastest Claimed

Radeon HD 8970M Mobile Graphics Chip Fastest Claimed

Jakarta – Radeon HD8000 officially announced, but not for the desktop computer but notebook users. It was not just one variant, there are some models that are ready to fill the mainstream segment, performance, and enthusiast.

In the mainstream segment, AMD Radeon HD 8500M prepare and HD 8600M. Entrusted to fill class performance on the Radeon HD 8700M and HD 8800M. While the top-class enthusiast who inhabited occupied by the Radeon HD 8970M.

Interestingly, AMD Radeon HD 8970M claimed as the fastest mobile graphics chips today. The claim was based on the known specs diusungnya rely kecepetan clock 850 MHz (900 MHz when turbo mode is active), 1280 stream processors and RAM speed of 1.2 GHz.

This specification combinations touted able to achieve a score of 2304 GFLOPS performance on a single computational precision. While achievement in computing by 144 GFLOPS double precision.

While the first notebook product will apply, as quoted from MaximumPC, Wednesday (15/05/2013), is MSI GX70 which is present as a gaming notebook. To prove his supposedly MSI also bundled game Crysis 3 in the product.
