New server with Dual Xeons

Its with great pleasure that we inform you that, we just received and installed our new server with Dual Xeons, 24GB ECC Ram, 120GB SSD for boot and main servers, and a 500GB HDD for secundary servers and services. The new server will be hosted in a soon to open PC Hardware Shop located in Fatima, Portugal.

Rumour suggests Nvidia could be planning a GTX 1060Ti

 

 

Over the last few weeks, we have been hearing a lot about the impending launch of the GTX 1080 and GTX 1070 Pascal graphics cards from Nvidia. However, we haven’t heard much about GPUs coming later down the line, until today, as a new report has revealed some potential information about the GTX 1060.

This particular leak comes from the same person that revealed the first GP104 die image a short while ago. According to the leaker (via Videocardz), the GTX 1060 will feature a GP104-150 GPU with 6GB of GDDR5 memory. This would make it a more cut down version than the GP104-200 that is said to feature on the GTX 1070. The GTX 1080 is said to be using a GP104-400 chip.

Interestingly enough, if this latest rumour turns out to be accurate, then it is possible that Nvidia might be planning a new X60 Ti card, as back in the Kepler days, the GTX 660Ti used a GK104 chip, while the GTX 660 used a GK106. So Nvidia could be returning to a similar line-up with Pascal.

It might be too soon to know much about Nvidia’s plans beyond the GTX 1080 and GTX 1070, which will reportedly be shown to press as soon as next week, with a public launch scheduled for sometime before the end of May. However, these rumours are interesting to take into account nonetheless.

KitGuru Says: The GTX 660Ti was a very popular card and was an excellent performer for its price at the time. Did any of you own a GTX 660Ti or even a 560Ti? Would you like to see Nvidia bring back the X60 Ti series with Pascal?

AMD Polaris Specs Leaked

Polaris 10 & Polaris 11 Will Feature GDDR5/X

It’s true that we will have to wait until next year for HBM2 GPUs from either Nvidia or AMD. Nvidia’s GP104 powered GTX 1080 and GTX 1070 cards – not official names – are reportedly configured for GDDR5X. And there’s virtually no chance of neither Nvidia or AMD risking production of large GPUs like GP100 or Vega 10 this early in the nodes’ lifecycles. Neither 16nm or 14nm will be mature enough for large GPU launches this year. This is all assuming HBM2 production has already sufficiently ramped up, which hasn’t yet.

Nvidia’s Pascal

What we know so far about Nvidia’sflagship Pascal GP100 GPU :

  • Pascal graphics architecture.
  • 2x performance per watt estimated improvement over Maxwell.
  • To launch in 2016, purportedly the second half of the year.
  • DirectX 12 feature level 12_1 or higher.
  • Successor to the GM200 GPU found in the GTX Titan X and GTX 980 Ti.
  • Built on the 16nm FinFET manufacturing process from TSMC.
  • Allegedly has a total of 17 billion transistors, more than twice that of GM200.
  • Will feature four 4-Hi HBM2 stacks, for a total of 16GB of VRAM and 8-Hi stacks for up to 32GB for the professional compute SKUs.
  • Features a 4096-bit memory bus interface, same as AMD’s Fiji GPU power the Fury series.
  • Features NVLink (only compatible with next generation IBM PowerPC server processors)
  • Supports half precision FP16 compute at twice the rate of full precision FP32.
