Meet Small-Sized QC5000M Mainboard from ASRock

ASRock enters the mainboard market with a new micro-ATX solution, entitled QC5000M. The greenhorn takes Kabini platform as the basis, featuring AMD A4-5000 hybrid processor (28 nm) with 4 Jaguar cores and 1.5 GHz clock frequency. The APU is accompanied by two slots for one-channel DDR3-1600 MHz RAM (up to 32 GB) and an integrated AMD Radeon HD 8330 graphics (500 MHz clock frequency, compatibility with DirectX 11.1 standard).



The implemented APU boasts 15 W TDP only, requiring a small-sized heatsink for efficient cooling. The model takes power via 24-pin ATX connector and is based on AMD A68 chipset. It is equipped with a single PCI Express 2.0 x16 slot, a pair of PCI Express 2.0 x1 slots, and the same amount of SATA III 6 Gb/sec ports.


Network and audio facilities are represented by Realtek RTL8111GR Gigabit Ethernet controller and 7.1-channel Realtek ALC887 codec respectively. Additionally, the PCB is furnished with ELNA sound capacitors. The rear side of the motherboard …

AMD releases new video accelerators and FirePro first APU for workstations

The debut of a new line of graphics cards AMD FirePro Wx000 on base of graphics processors family Southern Islands (28 nm) is also known as the basis for gaming decisions Radeon HD 7000.



Single-chip FirePro W9000 includes a GPU Taxiti XT 4 teraflops of performance when dealing with numbers and a single-precision teraflops in operations with double precision. The volume of on-board video memory is 6 GB of GDDR5, the recommended price — $ 4000. Scope of the discrete graphics FirePro / Southern Islands is traditional: CAD-applications that work with the media content, and system digital signage.


One position lower is FirePro W8000. It uses the kernel Tahiti Pro or XT, characterized by Tflops/806 3.23 Gflops of performance, memory capacity of 4 GB and a price tag of $ 1,600. Even lower in the hierarchy is the FirePro W7000. The card is equipped with 4 GB of GDDR5 RAM and the chip Pitcairn XT (Radeon HD 7870). Performance, according to AMD, is 2.4 Gflops Tflops/152 when …

Sapphire Showcases Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition Toxic Solution

Sapphire Technology Ltd. is going to release a new graphics card on Tahiti LE chip. Codenamed Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition Toxic, the card is one of the first models to use the newest GPU, developed under 28 nm technological process. The suffix 'GHz Edition' in the model's name witnesses that the nominal GPU clock frequency exceeds the index of 1 GHz.



The core of Sapphire Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition Toxic is based on Graphics Core Next architecture and contains 1536 current processors. The card's inventory involves 2GB of GDDR5 memory with 256-bit bus interface. The memory modules are known to operate at 6000 MHz frequency. GPU operational frequencies are still not clarified, but it's possible to assume that on activation of AMD PowerTune option the card will demonstrate some outstanding performance. In fact, analysts dare saying that this model is the most efficient one among all other solutions based on Tahiti LE chip.
