Intel’s 6th Generation NUC will be here in Q3 (i3 model) and Q4 (i5 model) and the specifications of the new unit have been revealed. The Intel NUC will still keep the mini-HDMI and mini-DisplayPort connections, but a new SDXC card slot has been added. The new versions of the NUC will be paired with dual-channel DDR4 memory up to 32GB and will have up to four USB 3.0 ports.
Earlier this week we let you know the official clock speeds of the GeForce GTX 980 Ti, and now we have the final configuration of the card thanks to the guys over at Hardware Battle. The biggest news is that the card will have 96 ROPs, this was the remaining information that was not available. This is the same ROP count as the GeForce GTX Titan X, that is why both cards come so close in gaming benchmarks.
AMD recently showed industry partners, likely add-in board partners a presentation on the upcoming Radeon R9 390X. The presentation was leaked to the web via photographs taken of the slides and they look quite legitimate. The first slide shows the official specifications of the card. The first thing that sticks out is that the R9 390X WCE (water-cooled edition) will have 4096 stream processors! That is quite a jump compared to the 2816 the R9 290X has.
The architecture block-diagram for NVIDIA’s GM200 silicon has been leaked to the web. The NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan X will be making full use of the GM200 silicon which it is based off of. The GM200 will feature six Graphics Processing Clusters (GPCs) each will hold 4 SMMs. So that gives the full processor 24 SMMs with a total of 3072 CUDA cores based on the Maxwell architecture.
To start the card will be based on NVIDIA’s 28 nm GM206 silicon. It will pack in 1024 CUDA cores that are based on the Maxwell architecture, 64 TMUs, possibly 32 ROPs, and has 2 GB of memory across a 128-bit wide GDDR5 interface. While you may think that the bus seems narrow, NVIDIA will be using lossless texture compression technology that will effectively improve bandwidth utilization.
Here are the first pictures of a partner branded NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 graphics cards, it is the Galaxy GeForce GTX 970 GC. The images were spotted on Chinese PC enthusiast forums and social networks. The images were not the only thing that was leaked, but we have specifications and even a few benchmarks.
Many people have speculated that the newly announced NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 Ti would sit between the GeForce GTX 780 and the GeForce GTX Titan, but that might not be the case. According to the Chiphell forums the GeForce GTX 780 Ti might actually exceed the GTX Titan in raw performs as its specifications have been leaked.
The official presentation for the AMD Radeon R9 290X and R9 290 graphics cards have been leaked. This gives us more official information that ever before about these two new cards from AMD! While the AMD R9 Series cards were announced at AMD’s GPU 14 event last month AMD never revealed any specifications or performance […]
Specifications of both the models, the R9 290X and the much more affordable in contrast R9 290, have been unveiled by some of the Japanese retailers. As soon as the R9 290X was announced by AMD, there were rumors circulating the web pages about the specs of it and it turns out that most of the specs revealed do match the rumored ones. It is equipped with 2,816 stream processors, up to 1000 MHz of GPU clock and offers single-precision floating point performance of 5.16 TFLOP/s. it also features a GDDR5 memory of 4 GB with a memory interface of 512-bit. The interface is clocked at 5.00 GHz and this generates a bandwidth of 320 GB per second.
Just about two weeks ago Valve announced Steam Machines along with SteamOS and the Stream Controller. Steam Machines are said to be next generation gaming machines aimed at gamers that want to game in the living room on the big screen. Valve announced that Steam Machines would ship in 2014, but would be sending out 300 BETA units to eligible Steam users. Valve has now released the specifications of what some of the prototype units would be.
