Haswell-based systems might boast some striking performance and computing characteristics. The model comes also with four full-size DIMM slots for the integration of DDR3 memory modules (up to 1600 MHz and 32 GB capacity) and 300W PSU, certified with 80Plus Bronze standard. The latter is able to provide for the best efficiency and power-saving operation.

Expansion facilities are offered by one PCIe x16 slot …

PowerColor Outs an Overclocked Radeon R9 270 OC Graphics Card

Along with other AMD partners, PowerColor has elaborated its own version of Radeon R9 270 adapter. The PowerColor Radeon R9 270 OC is differentiated from rival products by an improved cooling system and factory overclocked frequencies. Its release is scheduled for late November and the retail price won’t hit over $180.

To begin with, this graphics card is naturally based on AMD Curacao Pro GPU, developed under 28 nm technological process. It consists of 1280 current processors, 32 ROPs and 64 TMUs. The core runs at 930 MHz frequency and is able to gain 955 MHz frequency on overclocking. The incorporation of GDDR5 memory (2 GB) with 256-bit bus interface ensures some striking bandwidth of 180 Gb/sec; this provides for the support of gaming applications with high resolution. Memory chip operates at 1400 MHz nominal frequency but might gain the index of 5600 MHz of effective frequency on overclocking.

Cooling system, implemented within Radeon R9 270 OC, cannot be called …

Asus Launches Top-Notch ROG Matrix GTX 980 Ti Graphics Card

Asus is happy to introduce, upon its own statement, the most efficient graphics card based on Nvidia’s GTX 980 adapter. The ROG Matrix GTX 980 Ti is by 18.7% faster than all other reference analogues. Its advantage in some gaming applications achieves stunning 21.6%. Besides, the customers are able to further boost its performance due to ROG GPU Tweak II utility.

Asus ROG Matrix GTX 980 Ti employs an overclocked version of GM200-310 GPU. In OC gaming mode its clock frequencies make up 1216 MHz/1317 MHz (base/dynamic), whereas in Gaming mode these showings achieve 1190 MHz/1290 MHz margin. As far as memory is concerned, it’s introduced by GDDR5 modules (6 GB, 384-bit rail), running at 7200 MHz frequency.

Cooling is entrusted to DirectCU II cooler with direct touch technology and a pair of fans. The latter provide for the decrease of heat by 30% as well as triple cut of noise level, if compared with the reference cooler. Power is supplied via two 8-pin connectors.
