Colorful Amazes the Public by a One-Slot iGame Graphics Card

Colorful, a Chinese developer of graphics solutions, unveils some details about its new graphics card, codenamed iGame GTX 650 Ti Buri-Slim. The most peculiar thing about this card is that it takes only one slot within a PC case, if compared with similar models from other manufacturers. The model's design resembles the one implemented in a 2011 release (iGame GTS 450 Buri-Slim).

Colorful iGame GTX 650 Ti Buri-Slim is based on a non-reference printed circuit board; the latter is a bit longer than reference GTX 650 Ti. Hardware base deserves special attention, since it's been given a note of originality, despite being a part of the entry-level adapter. Instead of traditional solid-state capacitors Colorful implemented POSCAP capacitors. Power subsystem is organized according to 3+1 template; it employs high-efficiency transistors designed by ON Semiconductor.

The integrated graphics chip and memory modules of GDDR5 standard operate at 928 MHz and 5400 MHz correspondingly. …

Intel may release six-core processor Core i7-3970X EE

The top board platform Intel LGA2011 is not yet very demanded among customers, mainly due to the high prices of components — motherboard with chipset X79 and processors Intel Sandy Bridge-E. However, it should be remembered that the models LGA1366 also initially were desirable for only enthusiasts with a tight purse, and only in 2010, with cheaper motherboards and the release of new, more powerful processors, Core i7, (Bloomfield / Westmere) sales statistics of LGA1366 components rose considerably.

It is possible that consumer interest in the LGA2011 platform will also grow this and especially next year. Part of this will contribute to six-core Core i7-3970X Extreme Edition which is expected to be released. Core i7-3970X EE has a clock speed of 3.4 or 3.5 GHz stock, which is in turbo mode increases up to 4.0 GHz. Other features of the model coincide with those of the 3960X:

— Process technology: 32 nm Sandy Bridge-E architecture;

— The number of cores / streams: …

Enermax Equips NAXN ADV Units with Flat Cables

Enermax, a well-known manufacturer of various PC components, has recently introduced a new line of power supply units that are considered to be a more elaborate follower of NAXN series launched in 2011. A new line has been entitled NAXN ADV and already acquired 80 Plus Bronze certificate. Models, that entered the series, inherited a lot of similar features from their predecessors, nonetheless, they can boast a range of distinguishing parameters.

Thus, one of the most peculiar features pertained to NAXN ADV units is the implementation of absolutely flat cables, including the main power cable with 24-pin connector, cables with PCI Express connectors for 3D cards, as well as cables with sockets for the connection of drives.

Besides flat structure, all cables are quite flexible. According to the manufacturer's words, such layout facilitates their mounting and eliminates the problem of their confusion within the case. In its turn, proper cable management enhances the airflow …
