MSI is preparing new model - Radeon HD 7970 with a water-block

The well-known in IT-maker Company MSI announced about appearance of new videoadapter based on GPU Tahiti XT chipset. Its diversity from the other Radeon HD 7970 can be seen with the naked eye, instead of an air cooler practically the entire surface of the PCB is covered with waterblock brand EK. It differs markedly from the original version, since it is designed specifically for the MSI R7970 Lightning model. Relation of adapter to the Lightning series is easily determined by the inscription at the interface connector PCI-E 3.0 x16, as well as non-standard set of video outputs (2x DVI, 4x Mini DisplayPort) and configuration of additional power connectors (2x PCI-E Power 8-pin).



Obviously, the accelerator is positioned as the Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition and has a nominal frequency of at least 1050 MHz. Will MSI risk, like Sapphire did, and provide the card with 6 GB of memory? Probably not. The «advanced» composition of the printed circuit board and water block of full coverage …

Sapphire Outs a Mid-End R7 260X OC Gaming Graphics Card

Sapphire is glad to offer an affordable but quite efficient graphics card targeting inveterate gamers. The R7 260X OC is developed on AMD Radeon R7 260X GPU with Graphics Core Next architecture (28 nm). It features 896 stream processors and runs at the heightened frequency of 1150 MHz. Along with 2GB of GDDR5 memory (128-bit interface and 6600 MHz frequency) the core is able to guarantee a perfect balance between gaming efficiency and price.



Sapphire R7 260X OC employs PCI Express 3.0 x16 internal interface, while the connection of monitors is realized by means of four external video ports: DisplayPort, HDMI and 2x DVI (DVI-I and DVI-D). Cooling is ensured by a brand two-slot cooler; it consists of an aluminum heatsink, a pair of copper heatpipes, and one fan of axial type.


Like other graphics solutions based on R7 260X adapter, the new-comer from Sapphire supports a multiplicity of various technologies. Some of them are described below:

Evga Expands SuperNova T2 Series of High-Wattage PSUs

Evga has added to its sensational SuperNova 1600 T2 power supply unit a triplet of high-wattage models of 750 W, 850 W & 1000 W power. All of them correspond to 80Plus Titanium standard thanks to quite high efficiency level (up to 96% in 230 V networks). Moreover, the new-comers are backed by a 10-year’s limited warranty that vindicates unprecedented reliability of the asset.



Evga SuperNova T2 units come equipped with high-profile Japanese capacitors and a single +12V rail. The latter ensures that the models could stand tough loading, close to par: 748.8 W at 62.4 A, 849.6 W at 70.8 A and 999.6 W at 83.3 A respectively. The triplet is cooled down by a 140-mm fan based on dual ball bearings; on low loading the fan deactivates to provide for optimal noise level.


Similar to other advanced solutions, the greenhorns are packed with all innovative protection mechanisms, including overcurrent, overheating, overloading & short circuit tools. The list of integrated connectors …
