Razer Blade is renewed with a Core i7 quadcore and gamer power

last February came to market a laptop promised to be a sensation in the world of gaming, a promise that has been fulfilled as its sales went sky high. This is the Razer Blade, a laptop that was introduced by its spectacular creators of accessories and components for computers, mostly dedicated to video games. Well today, well today Razer shows us the second generation of the Blade, keeping the same spectacular design but completely renewed inside.

What is most striking about the Razer Blade at first glance is that wonderful backlit keyboard that is accompanied by a small multitouch panel for menus and options in games and special buttons for in-game commands. However, its specifications are more than just amazing, so in this second generation it has been even more surprising, as you will notice from the list of features.

New Razer Blade Features

  • 17.3-inch display with resolution of 1080 (Full HD).
  • Processor Intel Core i7 quad-core and generation Ivy Bridge.
  • RAM 8 GB DDR3 1600 MHz
  • Graphics Card NVidia GeForce GTX 660M .
  • Hybrid Storage from a disk drive (HDD) 500 GB 7200 RPM and a solid drive (SSD) of 64 GB for the system.
  • Backlit keyboard.
  • Multitouch screen and directed to commands buttons in video games.
  • Ports: 2 x USB 3.0 and 1 x USB 2.0. HDMI output.
  • WiFi connectivity and Bluetooth 4.0
  • New ventilation system for cooling laptop components.

The main differences with its predecessor is in the change of an Intel Core i7 from a dual core for a quad-core, in addition the storage capacity has changed from SSD over a hybrid drive, so the file storage software will be installed separately. Also, changed was the NVIDIA GeForce GT 555M for the new GeForce GTX 660M.

Finally, Razer was widely criticized for its high price as its first model cost no less than $2,799. However, in this second generation they have lowered its cost and will go on sale for $2499.

Razer Those of us give a little “ preview ” in the video below, on the eve of its market launch this coming September 30 in the United States.

Acer launches its first tablet Tab A700 with FullHD resolution and Tegra 3

If we go back in time six months ago when Android tablets could be considered a luxury, we realize that today with the announcement of the NVIDIA KAI platform the tablets can finally be deemed as accessible devices for most consumers, however, if the price is not a problem for our pockets, perhaps, it is worth giving a try the first Acer FullHD model from Acer, the Tab A700.

Confirming previous rumors, Acer has finally made ??official its Tab A700 tablet, presented earlier this year at CES 2012 as its first model with an LCD display with resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels and NVIDIA Tegra 3  platform. It also has 32GB of storage, HDMI video output and 5.1 channel audio with Dolby Mobile 3+. support.

Thus, Acer bets on the high-end Android tablets segment with the Tab A700 that will cost $450 and leaving the A210 and A110 models as alternatives in the range of  $200.

Few weeks ago we’ve learned of specifications of the new Brazos 2.0 APU based on the veteran Zacate core, and we knew that soon they would go on sale the new system dominated by this APU. We also learned on the 20th regarding the launch of the first computer based on these new APU and that was an all-in-one computer, specifically the Fujitsu EH30/HT, and now at last we are hearing of these early Brazos 2.0 Notebooks based on the manufacturer HP.
The new AMD Brazos 2.0 platform with its low power consumption and decent power, made it a good candidate to be mounted in low cost and low power consumption Notebooks, and even surprised with the launch of Fujitsu EH30/HT as the first device to hit the market instead of a Notebook, HP now has in his catalog and ready for sale the first two notebooks based on Brazos 2.0, consisting of two variants of the HP 655, which used a screen with a size of 15.6 inches and 2.45 kg.

The first model uses a dual-core CPU E1-1200 with a frequency of 1.4 GHz and integrated graphics HD 7310 at 500MHz and 80 shaders, it will have 2GB of RAM and 320GB hard drive, all running the operating system Windows 7. On the other hand it will employ the following for its model E2-1800, a CPU at a frequency of 1.7 GHz, integrated graphics HD 7340 to 523MHz (that will scale up 680MHz in Turbo mode) also with 80 shaders, this model used twice the RAM, ie, 4GB, and hard drive with also more capacity, including a 500GB drive, and operating system in this case will be a Linux distribution.

As we discussed earlier, the Brazos 2.0 platform would allow for low-cost notebooks and these notebooks would not be an exception, HP will market these laptops with very attractive prices, ranging from the $460 and $500.

Comparison of prices for the Radeon HD 7970, HD 7950 and GTX 680

 First came the Radeon HD 7970 and Radeon HD 7950 , these two cards from AMD, with architecture-based on Graphics Core Next at 28 nm, arrived in January. Months later, came the first card belonging to the  Nvidia series the GTX 600, GTX 680 , the first of Nvidia graphics card that incorporate the core GK104, architecture-based on Kepler. Today we bring you comparative price evolution of these three graphics cards.

Let’s start with the first graphics card to hit the market. AMD Radeon HD 7970 and it had a starting price of 500 euros , the price dropped to 480 € in the following days and remained constant for several weeks, until the arrival of competition from Nvidia, the GTX 680, then the price dropped to 450 €, later € 430, € 405 and now you can find it for about 385 € , which is the price that the MSI Radeon HD 7970 reference has. To find the cheapest model that uses the reference design, we have to look at 407 €, which is what the Gigabyte Radeon HD 7970 WindForce 3X costs.

In the case of the AMD Radeon HD 7950 , the variation is similar to that of its older sister, when the price was about 400 € , and few weeks later was reduced to 355 €, now it can be found for 327 € . The first model available with a different reference heatsink is the Radeon HD 7950 X-VTX3D Edition , which costs about 335 €.

Now we focus on the GTX 680 from Nvidia. Its price began in the 500 € ,the it followed a downward trend in price , which puts the price of the GTX 680 at this time at around € 460 .

Nvidia has just released the GTX 670, like the GTX 680 and GTX 690 is based on the graphics core GK104. The price of this graphics card is around € 374 for the reference model. You can check the models that have been released by the different manufacturers on this link.

GeForce GTX 670: Learn about the different models currently available

Yesterday we learned about the launch of the graphics card from NVIDIA, the GeForce GTX 670, the second monoGPU card which is based on the architecture Kepler from Nvidia and manufactured in 28nm. Today we are going to discuss the models that different manufacturers have been presented, since the GeForce GTX 670 comes in quite a few and even improved models in terms of cooling and performance.

Before beginning this review by the different models of the GeForce GTX 670 available, remember that the reference model have speeds at the core of 915Mhz and 980Mhz using GPU Boost technology, they offer 2GB of GDDR5 memory running at 6.000Mhz effective and has a TDP of 170W, let’s see the different models.

Asus GTX 670 DirectCU II is the model that comes with the standard frequencies, ie 915Mhz/980Mhz/6.000Mhz (GPU, GPU Boost, memories) . It uses two 90 mm fans and an aluminum heatsink that uses heat pipes nickel plated withcopper. Its starting price is 399 $ , the same as the version offered by Nvidia reference.

another model called the Asus GTX 670 DirectCu II TOP is an overclocked version of the core model discussed above. In this case the frequencies are set at 1.110Mhz and 1.137Mhz with GPU Boost. The price for this overclocked version increases to $ 419.

 Galaxy GeForce GTX 670

Meanwhile Galaxy brings two models, one based on the Nvidia reference design and the other the 67NPH6DV5ZJX model is an adaptation that has been made with the PCB of the GTX 680, let’s just say that  this is card that is very different from the rest, its denomination is 67NPH6DV5ZVX.

The first model shows almost nothing new, is based on the reference design but changed the color of the PCB and the rear back panel for improved ventilation. The frequency of operation is 915/980/6000MHz. Its price is also $ 399.

The second model is a bit special, because it is an adaptation of the PCB of the GTX 680, also employs the same cooling system as its larger sibling. The operating frequencies are the same used in the GTX 680, ie 1006/1058/6008 MHz But obviously we have the limitation that it only has 1344 CUDA Cores, but if not for this, it would be a GTX 680 in every way possible.

Gainward GTX 670 and Gainward GTX 670 Phantom.

The Gainward brand also brings us two models, the Gainward GTX 670 is based on the reference design but varies slightly on the design of the housing that covers the heat sink. Frequencies are also standard, 915/980/6000MHz and costs $ 399.

The other variant is the Gainward GTX 670 Phantom that includes a 10% overclock and that famous cooler we’ve seen in other previous cards. What it does is instead of having fans on the outside introducing fresh air outside the aluminum sheets and to the heatsink heatpipes, the Phantom models have fans inside the sink, removing heat generated by the GPU, ie the fans are placed upside down and blow the hot air out.

Zotac GeForce GTX 670 AMP! Edition.

Continuing its line,  Zotac directly brings us its AMP Edition! of the GTX 670. Is identical to the GTX 680 AMP! Edition we discussed a few days ago, employing the same PCB but again we are limited by the number of CUDA cores, as happens in the Galaxy we have seen before. It comes factory overclocked and frequencies are at 1.098Mhz/1.176Mhz of the core and effective 6.600Mhz for its 2GB of GDDR5 memory. Its price is estimated at $ 439.99.

Poin of View GTX 670.

The people of POW present a model based on the reference design for now, hopefully soon will also have a customized version.

MSI GeForce GTX 670.

Like the previous chart, MSI has just introduced its model based on the reference design. We hope that soon we may hear of a GTX 670 Lightning which will be greatly improved.

 Club3D GTX 670.

There is also no developments in the Club3D model, also is based on the Nvidia reference.

EVGA GTX 670, EVGA GTX 670 SuperClocked and EVGA GTX 670 FTW.

The reputable manufacturer EVGA is here to  present three models, the first of these is a common based on the reference design and uses the standard frequencies, there will be versions with 2GB and 4GB of GDDR5 memory.

The second is called EVGA GTX 670 SuperCloked, here we also have variants with 2GB and 4GB of GDDR5 memory also comes with a factory overclock and its core reaches 967/1046 MHz

And finally the third is called EVGA GTX 670 FTW, this model uses the cooling system and the PCB of the GTX 680, has an overclock which stands at 1006/1084 MHz

KFA2 GTX 670.

KFA2, which is the European brand of Galaxy, brings two models, one under the other reference design and one customized. In the reference model there is just a change in the color of the PCB and the rear bracket, otherwise they are the same.

The custom model includes an improved cooling system. It is very similar to the KFA2 GTX 680 EX OC, including the sink that was designed initially for the GTX 680, the frequencies is 1006/1058/6008 MHz, the same values for the GTX 680.

 PNY XLR8 GeForce GTX 670.

In regards to PNY again we have a card that is based on the reference design, although in this case comes with an HDMI cable to connect easily to a TV and enjoy HD content.

PALIT GeForce GTX Jetstream 670.

The manufacturer PALIT offers a custom card and a PCB components that are good quality. It’s called Jetstream GeForce GTX 670 and includes a sink with two very quiet fans. This model also comes factory overclocked and their frequencies are 1.006Mhz based GPU and 1.084Mhz with GPU Boost. its memory also increased to 6.108Mhz effective and its TDP up to 185W.

Gigabyte GTX 670 Windforce 3X

Gigabyte could miss out and their particular version equipped with sink Windforce 3X has three 90 mm fans. The PCB layout is similar to that used in the GTX 680 and uses the UltraDurable VGA+. Comes with  factory overclock and its speeds are at 980Mhz 1.058Mhz based and come with GPU Boost for the core, 2GB of GDDR5 memory 6.000Mhz remain in effect. Its price is estimated at $ 415.

For now these are all models that have been presented of the GeForce GTX 670, we expect soon other brands such as MSI and other will jump the bandwagon and launch more custom models.

The first model we saw of the HD 7750 with passive heat sink was Sapphire, but this time playing the second fiddle is also the Radeon HD 7750 from PowerColor as part of its line of Go! Green cards.

The card comes with reference frequencies and as is typical of this family of cards Go! Green-friendly environment also includes voltage regulation high-grade components. Among these components is the MOSFETs PowerPAK SO-8, armored coils and polymer capacitors.

The result of not using a fan will be the zero emission of noise, however, it is possible that different designs could offer a difference between heat sinks which is more efficient.

specifications:

  • GPU: 512 Shaders @ 800Mhz
  • 1GB of GDDR5 memory @ 1125MHz (effective 4.50Ghz)
  • 128-bit bus

Its release date is not known but is expected to be priced slightly higher than the reference model.
