    AMD has launched its first processors fusing x86 cores with graphics cores on a Mini ITX platform. We’ve taken the opportunity to compare their performance with the competitor solutions!

     GTX 580 Zotac 3 GB

    Zotac has just launched the GeForce GTX 580 AMP² Edition. This card stands out for both its cooler, a Zalman VF-3000, and its size of memory, which is 3GB, against 1.5 GB for the standard GTX 580s. Zotac isn’t the first to increase the memory to this level as Gainward was already offering 3GB on its Phantom range.


    The clocks have also been upped, going from 772 to 815 MHz for the GPU, 1544 to 1630 MHz for the shaders and 2004 to 2050 MHz for the GDDR5. The card bundle includes Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, but we don’t yet have a price for it. Gainward charge around €100 for their additional 1.5 GB.



     Seagate GoFlex Slim: 9mm

    Seagate has launched the thinnest external hard drive in the world, the GoFlex Slim. It’s just 9mm thick, thanks to the use of a 7mm thick Momentus Thin drive, compared to 9.5 mm for standard 2"1/2 drives. Seagate were the first to launch such a drive, in December 2009, followed by Hitachi.


    This 320 GB Momentus Thin runs at 7200 rpm and has a 16 MB cache. Meeting the USB 3 standard, the GoFlex Slim offers speeds of between 55 and 115 MB/s depending on how far into the drive you are. When using USB 2, speeds fall to 30 MB/s. It’s priced at $99.99, the same as the 500 GB GoFlex which is 14mm thick.



     NVIDIA launches a Quadro 400

    Following Sapphire, it’s over to NVIDIA to recycle an old GPU, this time in the form of a pro graphics card. The new Quadro 400 is thus based on a small GT216 GPU and is similar to the GeForce GT 220 DDR3 but with a memory bus reduced from 128 bits to 64 bits. This is an ultra low-end solution, with just 48 processing units, the main interest of which will be that it can access Quadro drivers for a little under €150.

    Although NVIDIA doesn’t mention the GPU clock, the 512 MB DDR3 is clocked at 770 MHz for a memory bandwidth of 11.5 Gib/s. Entry level and low profile, it has a DVI out and a DisplayPort out. We should also say that it’s a DirectX 10.1 generation GPU and doesn’t support the latest graphics developments.




     An SSD in a DDR3 slot

    Viking Modular Solutions has announced a rather unusual SSD based on the SandForce SF-2000 and in the SATADIMM format. Designed for 1U form factor servers, it in fact uses a standard DDR3 DIMM format.


    The DIMM connector is only used to power the SSD, with the system addressing via a standard SATA port. These SATADIMMs are available in both standard 25mm high versions and low-profile 18.75mm versions.



     Sapphire relaunches the Radeon HD 5850 and 5830!

    Sapphire has made a rather surprising announcement. It is relauching new versions of the Radeon HD 5850 and 5830, the Xtreme Editions. These cards of course have nothing extreme about them and will use the official clocks. They are accompanied by 1 GB of GDDR5 and DVI, HDMI and DisplayPort outs. The cooler, with heatpipes, is announced as quiet and is similar to that used on the Radeon HD 6800s.


    What makes these cards worth a look at is their pricing! The Radeon HD 5850 should be on sale at €119 and the Radeon HD 5830 at €89. How are Sapphire managing this? They have apparently obtained exclusivity from AMD on the last stocks of these solutions. These price levels make them great value for money as, in terms of performance, the 5830 is equivalent to an 6790 (around €120) while the 5850 falls between the 6850 and 6870 (around €155 and €175). The Radeon HD 5850 and 5830 Xtremes should be in stores as of next week.
