Gigabyte GeForce GTX 980 WaterForce Tri-SLI Graphics Kit

If you’re a hardcore PC gamer, you'd better hold off on anything you’re doing and listen to this. Gigabyte has just rolled out an impressive graphics kit that will give you something to dream about.

The company has introduced the GeForce GTX 980 WaterForce Tri-SLI graphics kit, which is as badass as it sounds. Tri-SLI means that the bundle packs three high-end GTX 980 graphics cards, which should boost performance levels through the roof.

The kit also comes with a disruptive box with a water-cooling system plumbed and ready to rock. So, given the levels of cooling bestowed on the bundle, you should be able to go crazy with overclocking. The enclosure comes equipped with a fan and each video card has a 120mm radiator of its own. The radiator enclosure benefits from a design that is meant to sustain high performance levels, better than most PC cases currently available on the market. The cooling system is quite massive and takes advantage of a lot of pumps to keep everything running smoothly. The digital display located in the front opens up a temp gauge, and there are probably other gauges as well. As a side note, the tubing system doesn’t go through the back of your PC, but instead through the top 5.25-inch drive bay, as you will be able to see in the gallery.

The kit allows multi-player on 4 separate displays

The system uses Gigabyte’s Flex display technology that can automatically detect and connect monitors, so users can enjoy multi-display gaming on up to 4 monitors at the same time via various output groups. Interestingly enough, Gigabyte is not offering a lot of hard facts about the new system, but is letting the images of the graphics kit speak for themselves. The GTX 980 video cards found inside are overclocked to be able to run at up to 1288MHz on the core, while memory speed is stock (7Gbps). When it comes to pricing, you should expect to pay quite a lot of cash for the GPU bundle. Consider that a single GTX 980 costs $550 / €440.

So even if Gigabyte hasn't said anything about the official pricing specifications, we can only assume that the cards will be sold for around $2,000 / €1,601. The official page for the GeForce GTX 980 WaterForce Tri-SLI graphics kit has already been set up, so we can only assume Gigabyte will announced the availability and pricing of this extreme gaming bundle soon enough.

Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet Specs Leak to include 10.1-Inch QHD Screen, Snapdragon 810 SoC

Sony has just revealed its Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact back at IFA 2014 in Berlin. The new slate breaks the pattern of Sony’s recent tablet products, by being a tablet with a smaller form factor, that of 8-inch.

Well, even if just a few months passed since the tablet saw the light of day, information already surfaced about Sony’s upcoming slate, the Xperia Z4 Tablet.

Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet surfaces with specs

The folks over at Android Origin managed to get a hold of the unannounced tablet’s specifications. It appears that the Xperia Z4 Tablet is going to mark a comeback to Sony’s usual tablet form factor, the 10.1-inch one. The tablet is going to bump up the resolution offered on the Xperia Z2 Tablet, which offered 1920 x 1200 resolution and deliver a QHD resolution instead (2560 x 1440 pixels). This way the tablet is going to be comparable with similar products like the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5. The Japanese device maker is also rumored to be testing a 3840 x 2160 panel for the tablet, but the final version is most likely to be made available with a QHD resolution, rather than 4K. Sony is said to maintain their design language, although the Xperia Z4 will enjoy much thinner bezels than previous tablets from the company’s portfolio.

Borrowing from the Z3 Tablet Compact, the next-gen Sony tablet could end up sporting stereo speakers. Judging by what Sony has launched in the past tablet-wise, we can expect the Xperia Z4 Tablet to be one of the slimmest and lightest 10-inch Android tablets around. In all possibility, the unannounced Sony tablet will arrive with Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box. Remember that back when it launched the Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet was the skinniest tablet on the market, coming in at 6.4 mm / 0.25 inches, but got dethroned after Apple launched its iPad Air 2 and Dell its Venue 8 7000 Series.

Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet to rely on Snapdragon 810

When it comes to internal specifications, the Xperia Z4 Tablet should arrive with a Snapdragon 810 Octa-Core chipset fitted with 4GB of RAM and backed up by 32GB of internal storage. In the photography department, the tablet should boast a 13MP camera with a higher resolution sensor, while in the front there will be an 8MP shooter. Recently, the rumor mill also said that Sony was working on a 12-inch tablet to be unveiled in the early months of 2015. But the Xperia Z4 Tablet is not it. So we should expect Sony’s professional business tablet to bear the Z5 moniker. Most likely.
