ASRock Fatal1ty X470 Gaming-ITX / ac: new motherboard for small gaming computers

ASRock Fatal1ty X470 Gaming-ITX ac review

The motherboard manufacturer ASRock has just presented its first gaming motherboard, in mini ITX format, for the AMD X470 chipset. The new ASRock Fatal1ty X470 Gaming-ITX / ac is a very compact motherboard but it has all the necessary additions to make it a good model for that segment of small computers. With the processors with Bulldozer core, few were the brands that dared with the segment of gaming motherboards in mini ITX format. Something that, on the other hand, we consider quite logical, if we consider that the performance in games of these processors, was far from being spectacular. In those years, the brand that “split the cod” was Intel, and for its processors yes that many motherboards came out in this format.

Review: Western Digital Green 240 GB, a cheap SSD to improve the performance of your PC

Western Digital Green 240 GB review

Today we can have a top-of-the-range computer, with a next generation Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti graphics, 64 GB of RAM and two 4 TB hard drives each, which, both when starting and when trying to play relatively new games, we will have problems, and those responsible will also be the latter. For a long time, the bottleneck of computers has been on hard drives, and they are very slow compared to the speed of other components. Therefore, if we really want to take advantage of the performance of a PC it is necessary to resort to the new SSD and, if we also want an economic option, a great alternative is the Western Digital 240 GB. Western Digital is one of the leading manufacturers of hard drives in the market. Taking advantage of the boom SSDs were having, in 2015 this company took over Sandisk, a manufacturer that had already entered the SSD market so that WD could easily enter this new market and continue with its same range of products.

MSI H310-F PRO mining motherboard supports Intel Coffeelake processors

MSI H310-F PRO specifications

With the rise of mining difficulty, the mining craze in cryptocurrency space has toned down in a big way but the companies have not given up. MSI has churned out a new motherboard that supports the LGA1151 socket that support Intel Coffeelake processors. So, if you planning to make a new mining rig with upcoming Pentium and Celeron processors, the MSI H310-F PRO will have you covered.

With 12x PCIe x1 and 1x PCIe x16 slot, the MSI H310-F PRO can handle upto 13 GPUs at a time. There are Molex power connectors in the box that will provide support for the additional GPU power requirements. There are four fan connectors and 2x DDR4 RAM slots. This makes it one of the best motherboard for miners.

This motherboard will be excellent for those who run massive GPU farms. Each machine will be able to run 13 graphics card simultaneously. While people will soon be moving away from Ethereum mining, they will still be able to do Ethereum Classic mining, which was the original Ethereum chain. There are plenty of other cryptocurrencies like Groestlcoin, Vertcoin, Zcash that would require miners to keep their network up and process transactions. However, mining is profitable only for a few. via videocardz

ASRock Desk Mini review: Compact PC for expansion according to personal needs

ASRock Desk Mini reviewed by mytechpartner team. At Computex, we have taken the opportunity to bring even the “Desk Mini 110” from ASRock for you before the camera. It is a very compact machine in which her ​​most important components have yet to buy according to your own needs and have to install. The motherboard is for easily extract from the casing in the ground state and offers space for a variety of components. It is equipped with a H110 chipset from Intel, which you can populate with a Skylake Intel processor of your choice. The chip, however, should have a maximum of 65 Watt TDP.

ASRock Desk Mini review

Of course, the chipset supports DDR4 format for the main memory. The available slots for enough to put up to 32 gigabytes of RAM in the small case. Furthermore, can be found on the board two SATA3 ports and two M.2 slots that can be equipped with the respective storage media.

When using SSDs limits are hardly set and use of high-end models, it brings the system entirely on data throughputs gigabytes per-second range.

By nature, the system also brings a number of terminals. So the user can choose when connecting a display, for example, between HDMI, Display Port and VGA. Here one must, however, be limited to the integrated graphics units of CPUs, there simply is no space for an additional graphics card is present.

Furthermore, USB ports of versions 2.0, 3.0 and 3.1 are available as well as jacks for audio signals. ASRock provides to the system already has a default cooler, which should be enough for these CPUs. The housing itself is in any case already designed deliberately for the strongest possible ventilation.

If necessary, the entire system can also be ordered with alternative chipsets. In the standard version of the product will cost around 135 euros, the cost of the processor and memory did we mention it.   

Polaris 10 and 11 specifications unveiled

According to TechPowerUp, industry sources have informed some interesting specifications of the next two GPUs that AMD will launch the market, graphic Polaris 10 Polaris 11 , both based on the fourth generation of graphics architecture Graphics Core Next.

Polaris 10 and 11 specifications

Although this leak comes first hand from one of the most important sites worldwide hardware must catch it with tweezers, as always, for there is nothing confirmed by the manufacturer. According to report, and we already knew, AMD is preparing two GPUs, one for midrange and one for the so-called industry performance (not high-end, eye).

Ellesmere GPU performance will be the sector and will according to the source with 32 CUs (Compute Units) and not 40 as previously thought. Assuming that each CU has 64 Stream Processors, this gives us that AMD graphics Polaris “Ellesmere” will have 2048 Stream Processors, yet these graphs have a power of 5.5 TFlop / s according to AMD.

While Hawaii AMD graphics have a TDP of no less than 250 watts, the new chips will have as much a TDP of 150 watts, which would allow AMD to put a single power connector 8-pin, as it has done NVIDIA its new generation, and as it did already in the R9 Nano AMD. According to the source, these graphic Polaris will have 8GB of GDDR5 / GDDR5X memory with a 256-bit bus, something we already knew well.

The “small” Polaris chip as techpowerup says, the midrange is called Baffin (as I have explained above). In this case count, according to the source, with only 14 CUs, ie, 896 Stream Processors nothing else. It would be the successor chip Tobago (Radeon R7 360) and a similar performance to R9 380 is expected, more or less. The good part of these graphs is that in theory will have a TDP of only 50 watts and will not need additional power connector.
