Zalman Intros Three New Graphics Cards with VF1500 Cooler

Zalman, a well-known manufacturer of CPU coolers, PC cases and graphics solutions, introduces three new graphics card models, codenamed GeForce GTX 600 D5 OC VF1500, GeForce GTX 660 Ti D5 VF1500 and GeForce GTX 660 Ti D5 OC VF1500. All three models are equipped with a brand two-slot VF1500 cooler. Its framework consists of four heatpipes which transfer heat from GPU surface to an aluminum heatsink. This heatsink is accompanied by a couple of 92 mm fans, the maximal rotational speed of which achieves 1500 RPM. If compared with a reference cooler, VF1500 reduces GPU operational temperature at 25 degrees (from 81 to 56 degrees), producing 10 dB less noise (26 dB vs 36 dB).

The first model is based on Nvidia GK106 processor, designed under 28 nm technological process. It is characterized by heightened clock frequencies: nominal 1006 MHz against reference 980 MHz, and dynamic 1059 MHz against reference 1033 MHz.

The other two models, GeForce GTX 660 Ti D5 VF1500 and GeForce GTX …

Enermax Platimax D.F. PSUs Hit the Market

Enermax launches a couple of platinum power supply units, earlier unveiled at the CeBIT 2016. The Platimax D.F. model is available in two versions – 500 W & 600 W – which boast 80Plus Platinum certificate thanks to 93% efficiency index. They are able to operate within 100-240 V voltage range at 10 A input. Featuring 150x160x86 mm dimensions, both PSUs can fit in any PC case.

Enermax Platimax D.F. units are furnished with a single +12V rail, estimated for 492/600 W power. At the same time the output power of +3.3 V & +5 V rails makes up 103 W. The hardware base includes high-quality Japanese capacitors as well as low-voltage DC-DC converters.

Cooling is secured by a single 139-mm fan based on Twister Bearing; it is thought to operate up to 160 thousand hours. The fan supports Dust Free Rotation technology that enables reverse rotation during the first 10 seconds.

The units employ SLEEMAX modular cabling. Each cable is coated in cloth to ensure the best management. …

TUL Unchains Radeon R9 Nano Graphics Card

TUL Corporation announces the release of its own version of Radeon R9 Nano videocard (within the framework of PowerColor brand). The model preserves reference PCB and cooling design, implying its compatibility with mini-ITX PC systems and high-performance home media centers. The new-comer is about to launch at the price tag of $650.

PowerColor Radeon R9 Nano is developed on AMD Fiji XT GPU with 4096 stream processors based on GCN 1.2 architecture, 64 ROPs and 256 TMUs. The core operates at 1000 MHz frequency. It is accompanied by 4 GB of multilayer HBM1 memory with 4096-bit bus and 1000 MHz efficient frequency. The connection to the PSU is realized via a single 8-pin PCI Express Power connector.

To continue, this graphics card is known to support the latest DirectX 12 standard as well as a huge list of AMD technologies: HD3D, FreeSync, Async Shaders, Mantle, CrossFire, Frame Rate Target Control, etc. The TDP index makes up 175 W.

Despite small-sized form-factor, the …
