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 …

The 16 nm Colorful iGame GTX 1080 Ti Vulcan X OC Video Adapter Features Essential Overclocking

Enthusiasts are in anticipation of the iGame GTX 1080 Ti Vulcan X OC video card retail launch, which is coming soon. The highlight of this Colorful product is the LCD-display on the cooler case reflecting key operational options of the device.



iGame GTX 1080 Ti Vulcan X OC is based on the NVIDIA GP102 processor with Pascal architecture. The profile of this 16 nm specialty includes 3,584 streaming processors, 224 TMUs, as well as 88 ROPs. The GDDR5X memory capacity comes up to 11 GB.


The Colorful graphics card obtained the striking factory overclock. The adapter GPU clock is 1,480 MHz, and the boost clock equals to 1,582 MHz. The novelty works at the 1.6 GHz basic frequency, however, the ultimate clock speed is 2 GHz.


A powerful cooler with three 92 mm fans and six heat pipes ensures proper chilling of this graphics accelerator. Thus, we can assume, that this product weighs much.


Unfortunately, we have no data about the cost of iGame GTX 1080 Ti Vulcan X OC.

Asus Boasts One More Graphics Adapter with a Two-Slot Cooler

Asus has replenished its graphics card series based on Kepler architecture with a brand variation of one-chip GeForce GTX 680 adapter. Brand Asus GeForce GTX 680 card has been developed on an original in design circuit board and is notable by the doubled to 4GB GDDR5 memory capacity. Nevertheless, the most outstanding characteristic of a new product is the implementation of a two-slot cooling system, codenamed DirectCU II. Earlier Asus equipped its GeForce GTX 680 adapters with three-slot coolers.



The company decided to concentrate mainly on the introduction of an uncommon cooling system, leaving all frequency showings identical to the recommended by Nvidia index. Thus, graphics core operates at 1006 MHz frequency, while memory module works at 6008 MHz. Memory chips are soldered on both sides of the circuit board. The reverse side of PCB is covered by an aluminum plate that is in direct contact with GDDR5 chips.
