Sapphire Unveils Small-Sized R9 285 2GB GDDR5 ITX Compact Edition Graphics Cards

Optimized energy efficiency offered by AMD Radeon R9 285 graphics adapters has become a key factor for Sapphire to elaborate a pair of original proprietary versions. The new-comers, codenamed R9 285 2GB GDDR5 ITX Compact Edition, are targeting mini-ITX systems with huge performance ambitions. The pair traditionally involves a standard model with etalon specifications and OC model with a factory overclocking.

Both graphics cards employ a small-sized two-slot cooler that consists of a compact heatsink, four copper heatpipes, and a single fan of 100 mm dimensional type. Connection with PC monitors and other visual solutions is realized by means of HDMI, DVI-I, and a couple of mini-DisplayPorts. Additionally, the models feature dual BIOS chips (standard and UEFI) which might be switched with the help of a dedicated key on the case.

To continue, Sapphire R9 285 2GB GDDR5 ITX Compact Edition and OC Edition are based on AMT Tonga GPU (28 nm, GCN) with 1792 stream processors, 112 …

Philips Equips Its New Monitor with ErgoSensor Technology

With the penetration of Internet into every sector of business and industry, it's barely possible to avoid hours-long work at computer. Such 'diligence' not infrequently leads to minor or major health issues, primarily connected with the eyesight and backbone. This is why, Philips decided to save its potential customers from any health problems by releasing a new monitor Brilliance 231P4QRYES. This monitor is equipped with ErgoSensor technology, like its predecessor, that helps the users in keeping to basic rules on work at PC.

ErgoSensor technology fulfills a few vital functions. Firstly, the integration of a built-in camera allows the system to estimate the distance between the eyes and the display; further on, it offers the user the most optimal distance index to provide for appropriate browsing. Secondly, when there is no one at computer, the monitor reduces the display brightness; moreover, after a certain period of time the system will turn the monitor off, saving up to …

ECS Debuts with a New GTX660TIA-2GR5-WFM Graphics Card

ECS, a well-known designer of graphics solutions, announces the release of its new graphics card GeForce GTX 660 Ti, also known as GTX660TIA-2GR5-WFM. The card is elaborated on the basis of a reference adapter from Nvidia. GPU GK104 (designed according to 28 nm technological process) is the heart of the model. It consists of 1344 CUDA cores and features 915 MHz nominal frequency that can be dynamically overclocked to 980 MHz.

Memory subsystem of ECS GeForce GTX 660 Ti embraces 2 GB of GDDR5 memory that runs at the nominal 1502 MHz frequency but can be increased to the effective 6008 MHz mark. The manufacturer decided not to alter recommended by Nvidia parameters in their own version. The connection with GPU resources is realized via 192-bit rail.

This graphics card employs PCI-e 3.0 x16 internal interface. A set of external video interfaces totally corresponds to the etalon requirements and involves one DisplayPort, one HDMI, and a pair of DVI ports.
