Graphics Adapter Gigabyte GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost with Modified Frequencies

Taking the lead from a number of Nvidia’s partners, Gigabyte has launched its own sample piece of GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost graphics adapter. It is differentiated primarily by modified GPU and memory frequencies, as well as by an improved PCB design. The latter employs Ultra Durable 2 technology that stipulates the implementation of high-quality hardware components, including ferrite chokes, solid-state capacitors, and Low RDS Mosfets transistors with reduced resistance on mode changes.

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost is based on GK106 GPU, developed under 28 nm technological process. Its nominal frequency has been increased from the reference 980 MHz to 1033 MHz, while its dynamic frequency has been changed from 1032 MHz to 1098 MHz. This graphics adapter is furnished with 1 GB of GDDR5 memory, which clock frequencies have been, vice versa, lowered: nominal index dropped from 1502 MHz to 1250 MHz, dynamic index dropped from 6008 MHz to 5000 MHz.

Be Quiet! Adds a Couple of Dark Base 900 Cases

Be Quiet! has supplemented its lineup of PC cases with two Super-Midi Tower models: the Dark Base 900 & the Dark Base Pro 900. Both new-comers allow for the installation of ATX/XL-ATX/E-ATX motherboards with the maximum of 8 expansion slots. The chassis is made of SECC steel with a mixture of ABS-plastic inserts. The Pro version comes with a side window made of a quenched glass.

Be Quiet! Dark Base 900 cases (585.5x577.2x242.7 mm) feature a pair of 5.25-inch drives bays, seven 3.5-inch bays as well as fifteen 2.5-inch drive bays. They are ready to accommodate CPU coolers of up to 185 mm in height, PSU of up to 284 mm in length, and graphics cards of up to 325 mm (with the drive bay)/470 mm (without the drive bay) in length. The range of external interfaces includes a single HD audio port & four USB ports (2x v 2.0, 2x v 3.0).

The difference between the two lies in the implemented cooling system. Both chassis come with an integrated fan controller. The controller inbuilt …

Chieftec Launches Smart SFX-500GD-C Power Supply

Chieftec has been always known as a quick-change artist in the hardware market. As a rule, SFX power supply units can’t boast high power or productive cooling. However, far otherwise is Chieftec that proves the contrary. Its latest Smart SFX-500GD-C solution is a combination of an astounding efficiency and a full-blown 120 mm fan. Due to this, the model has been certified to work as a part of Nvidia SLI and AMD CrossFireX graphics configurations.

Chieftec Smart SFX-500GD-C features 125x135x64 mm dimensions. Offering 500 W power, it provides for more than 90% efficiency in the majority of workloads. Herein, there in small wonder that this model has won 80Plus Gold certificate. Reliability is the other distinctive feature ascribed to this PSU. It is backed by a single +12V rail with the output capability of 40A. An overall charging power of +3.3V and +5V rails makes up 150W.

This allows for the creation of a high-performance system with a flagship CPU and a top-tier GPU. …
